Noted Banker Indicted. The opening gun of the “cleanup campaign,” one important phase of which is aimed at the modern bank practice of reckless “speculation with other people’s money” was fired with the arrest of Joseph W.

He was with the Hitler putsch of 1923 in Munich, and fought with the German insurgents in Upper Silesia. He inherited vast es tates with many retainers, whom he welded together in a private feudal militia of about eight hundred fighting men, completely outfitted with slogans and uniforms. He built up his little army into an important unit of the Austrian heimwehr, of which he as sumed supreme command. He lias two heimwehr men in the cabi net under Chancellor Dollfuss, and re cently he issued a manifesto dissolving the schutzbund and providing for a federal commissioner to run the realm, intending to take that post himself.

The second indictment charges the evasion of payment of $150,791.09 in income taxes for the year 1930 by a fraudulent sale of $759,000 worth of stock which the banker is alleged to have repurchased five months later for substantially the same sum. Another Banker in Hot V/ater. Still another "big league” banker in hot water with the government is Hor ace C. Sylvester, until recently vice president of the National City com pany, an affiliate of the National City bank, who is under indictment on a charge of third-degree forgery growing out of his testimony in the senate stock market inquiry about the time Mitchell was making bis grudging ad missions. Sylvester is accused in the true bill returned against }iim by the federal grand jury here of having di rected the treasurer of his company to take $12,020 out of the account of a syndicate formed to float a Port of New York authority bond issue as an expense of the syndicate when it was really used for a loan to John E. Ram sey, general manager of the Port of New York authority. The loan, it de veloped, was made six weeks after the National City company had underwrit ten an issue of $06,000,000 in port au thority bonds. Scientist Calculates Date of His Own Death Carmel.

There is a curious misconception among high school and college stu dents that if you 8 are going to do anything worth while In extracur r ic u 1 a r activities you are bound to be a commonplace or Indifferent stu dent, and that if scholastic honors, it follows that you will get no nearer the athletic or ac tivities field than “I don’t want to have my nose In a book all the time,” the aspirant for honors on the track team announces, “I want to do some thing else.” So he loafs on the books, flunks economics 27, goes on probation and is ineligible for a year. What he really means is that he has a consti tutional antipathy to hard work. Our local high school held a public Initiation a few weeks ago of the boys and girls who had been elected the honorary scholastic society. I wasn’t at all surprised to see in the group boys who had won their letters in foot ball who were wearing medals for mu sical and journalistic excellence and girls who were quite outstanding in other things than scholarship. “If you're going to be a Phi Beta," some loafer tells me, “you’ve got to give all your time to it." It isn’t true. One of the best guards we ever had on our team made Tau Beta Fhi, honorary engineering fra ternity, earned his living and was in love at the same time. Of course he had energy and concentration and de sire to do well in each of the activi ties in which he was engaged. He won his letter, got enough to eat, made the senior honor society, and married the girl to whom he was engaged. What more could ope ask? I know an end who made Phi Beta Kappa in his junior year, and any number of edi tors and managers and debaters who have done the same thing. ©. 1933, Western Newspaper Union. had known definitely he was going to die, according to a statement of his widow, Mrs. Wilma Aldrich. She says Mr. Aldrich had discussed the probability of death with several of his close friends and had written a scientific article on death which he sent to his colleague, Prof. C. G. Jung of Zurich, Switzerland. Mr. Aldrich’s theory held that every person, if he cares to search his mind, can predict his ow r n death weeks -ahead. Appar ently believing in this theory and knowing his time had come, Aldrich, on the day of his death, placed all his business in order. Then he retired for the night and less than half an hour later he died of a heart attack, al though a previous medical examina tion had shown him to be in excellent condition.

Yet even [ klr * ■ strangers receive Hr an impression, either of a person who Is a discourag ing Individual or a cheering one, a gallant man or woman, or one indiffer ent to the great values that are in every life. By the expression in their eyes, smile and bearing, they adver tise as plainly as does the flag of a nation, what is the nature of their allegiances. A casual glance at the individuals in any group will suffice to give an estimate of who “wear the colors” of a land of pessimism in which the citizens carry a constant, burden around with them, to inflict its weight whenever possible on others; and also those who “wear the col ors” of a more optimistic country where the best thought, and good cheer is in order. A standard bearer, he who carries the colors in military functions, as well as drill where there may not be a band, would not hold his position long If he did not do It with the air of Importance, authority, and pride, as well as erectness. One may argue that it is becnuse he is always under inspection in so doing. The argument holds in private life also. Whether among strangers or not the individual is always “under inspection.” We have observed strangers, with good news in their possession which makes them walk as if to martial music and we have known that they had good news. And we have seen others, unconscious of our gaze, who advertised the fact of their failure just as plainly. The face "is the flag” which proclaims the sort of boundaries one lives within. To make public admission of unworthy ones is not anyone’s necessity. Seldom has there been a time when fashions in frocks lent themselves bet ter to making over of old styles into new. Seldom has there been a time when the economy made possible by such styles was more desirable. The home dressmaker can, from discarded garments, have an interesting new wardrobe, not of so many dresses, but of up-to-date ones by taking advantage of these present voluminous sleeves of today, which, whether sleeves be long or short, require probably the use of the good parts of one old frock for them, while another frock goes into the main portion of the dress, with perhaps some of the sleeve material used as belt or trimming. In this “warming over” two dresses into one, be sure to select well for each use of material. A heavier tex tile is best for the dress itself, with lighter colored and lighter weight goods for sleeves. Or the same weight of goods may be used for both parts, in which case the sleeves would be brighter. Or, the goods for sleeves may be both brighter and lighter weight. There Is a notable exception in the disposal of light and heavier weight goods when it comes to velvet. Sleeves are frequently of-velvet even when gowns themselves are in the goods called “sheers,” which term ap plies to certain weaves not actually transparent, but of light and fine weave such as georgette and those of approximating texture. ©. 1933.

Only Six Real Causes for Mankind’s Maladies There are no more than six causes for Illness, aedbrding to Dr. Wilfred Trotter of Chicago, with the possibil ity of the number being reduced to four through future discoveries of science. One cause Is Injuries, such sprains or wounds. Another is formity at birth, such as hunchbacl^w^ A third cause is diet, a fourth poison ing, and a fifth is infection by para sites, including the large number of diseases'caused by germs. The sixth is such malignant growths as cancer, which are known medically as “neo plasms.” Doctor Trotter believes only four of these causes real, and that de formities are due to injuries, bad diet, or germ infections before birth, while the cause of cancer will some day probably be definitely attributed to the germ recently isolated. —Path- finder Magazine. fifcn/tcr qettcr SLEEP When you can’t sleep, it’s because your nerves won’t let you.
