there are those who swear' by them,
just as they cherish magic formulas
to cure many diseases.
Gradually, however, doctors, scien-

vista uiu oevter euucauon are axpiou
ing some of these beliefs, although it
would not be safe to state that all
of them are without value. Just for
f un let's check up on your own ideas.
Do you think:
That a persistent cought developed
into tuberculosis: that one gets warts
from handling toadfrogs; that eating
seed-containing fruit causes appendi
citis; that you should not go to sleep
after eating a big meal; that light
hurts your eyes when you have a cold,
or that removing a splinter with a pin
will cause bloodpoisordng?
Now, before reading any further,
check, up on your opinions. How many
of the things listed above fit in with
your own belief? " " :' ' !ii '
Well, the answer to all of them, ac
cording to health authorities, is a
vigorous negative! A
May Keep The Peace
Secretary of State Dean Acheson
seems to think that "peaceful adjust
ment" of the differences with Soviet
Russia is possible, when the Western
nations have adequately reduced the
present military inequality.'
In a word, the Secretary of State
suggests that the Western nations
should rapidly re-arm, in order to
prevent the Russians from aggression
under the impression that their mili
tary power is sufficient to run rough
shod over the rest of the world. ,
At about the time the Secretary of
State was making his statement,
John J. McCloy, U. S. High Commis
sioner to Germany, speaking, in
Frankfort, warned the Sovfet Union
not to underestimate the power or
the determination of Jhe .Western al
lies to defem ,tne German Federal Re
public and Western Berlin .against
Russian or East German aggression.
Over in this country, the Defense
Department reported that last spring,
before the conflict in the Far East,
the Army intended to spend $312,000,
000 for guns, tanks, ammunition, arm
ored vehicles and other .important
"hariware."'ow the igttre has been
increased to $2,000,000,000. In addi
tion, arms-buying" for ;jhe strengthen
ing of Atlantic Pact powers' has been
jumped up from $500,000,000 to. 12,-
000,000,000.' v.-.;. '. v-- .mm '
The words of our statesmen, empha
sized by the tremendous increase in
the size of our armed owefc ought
to exert some influence upon the Rus
sians.: The whole program of the
Western powers,; designed obtain
security in "Europe, is underlined by
the firm action of the United States
and the United Nations, in .Korea. It
ought to be tmnoas, even to the' Rus
sians, that the Western nations have
decided thatwfr ja to be preferred to
appeasement'' Ymi&y'' ''' ' '.
