A n d e rs R andolf plays the p a r t of an unscrupulous politician and reports indicate th a t he does some rem a rk­ able acting.

This statem e n t was broadcast Friday ' evening from Sta­ tion WGY in one of the' regular week­ ly. health talks- of the State D e p art­ ment of H e alth. “To the lay m ind” said Dr. M un­ son, “any refusal of the stomach to care for the food put into it, together 1 w ith ^nausea, belching of gas, and pain in the pit of the stom ach, is in-r digestion. If you are subject to this triad of tornj'entors, you need to see your doctor. You ask, why? A little bit of indigetsion is nothing. In a fair num b e r of tim es you m ay be right but the times when you are wrong mean trouble. Indigestion may be the opening chapter of a serious story. “The most frequent cause of indi­ gestion is im p roper diet. E ither the am o u n t of food is too large or the character of food eaten is improper, or it is eaten too rapidly. I t is a w o n ­ der th a t the hum a n stom a c h does its w o rk a t all, considering the-w a y it is abused.

A tlantic City, Dec. 5—^The respec­ tive rights of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania to use w a ter from the Delaware river are established in an agreement^ between the three states the draft of which was virtually com­ pleted here today. This was announced by members of ‘the Tristate Delaware Treaty Com­ mission after a one day session in the St. Charles Hotel. The commission has been holding meetings for several m o n ths and has considered seventeen different drafts of the proposed agreement. The final draft was said to he “in food shape and so form u la ted as to assure equit­ able distribution of the Delaware' riv­ er w a ter among the three states.” The agreem ent, it was announced, will be signed by representatives of digestion.

Not infrequently it is the only m a n ifestation, to yourself a t least, of chronic appendicitis; it is the early and usual advance agent of ulcer a n d cancer of the stom ach; it is the faith ­ ful companion of gall stones. Kidney diseases are often preceded by spells of indigestion; diseases of the liver are alm o st constantly associated- w ith in­ digestion, and it accom p anies certain nervous,. disorders. Constipation and indigestion are ‘first cousins.’ “Considering the many serious dis­ eases, the first indication of which may be indigestion, the question may well be asked— “why not discover those diseases when first they appear, a t a tim e when treatm e n t m ay be effec­ tive? Why w a it so long to know w hat the actual cause of your indigestion is, only to find that you^have some organic disease that is then too far advanced to be cured. Your insur­ ance against this possibility is an ex­ am ination by your physician. K the only thing you need is correction of your diet, and you follow the advice given, you will be well repaid.

If, however, you elect to guess w h a t the trouble causing your indiges­ tion is, and you guess diet, and you are right—you are lucky. If you guess diet, and you have ulcer orf cancer of the stom ach you have made a mistake th a t you must pay for. Guess work is poor policy. It pays poor dividends in both health and comfort, “Isn’t it plain th a t there is a cause for your^ indigestion, and isn’t' it equally plain th a t the proper tre a t­ m e n t is the rem o v al of that cause?

Work for Architects In America we h a \e never stopped growing long enough \ p diagnose the fundam ental ailments 01 modem urban growth. Until we, individually and as a community, undertake this exam­ ination, the field for community plan­ ning will be limited, and the architect will continue to design, in subservi­ ence to the forces outside his work which are daily determining his milieu. Once our American communities a re ready to alter, not simply their super­ ficial physical characteristics, but some of their fundamental habits and traditions, then community planning will be possible. It is our belief that it will be to the supreme advantage of the architect to hasten this day. PORTIERVIS. FACTS OF S o c ia l AND MORAL QUESTIONS A tlanta, Dee. 5— “Facts regarding th e Christian viewpoint upon social m o ral questions should be prepared, by the churches fo r the plain m a n and w o m an who does not read books or attend conferences, and who has scant tim e and Tittle training, .accord­ ing to Mrs. W.

The report of the Inter-Church Movement on the steel striket and the activity of the social service commissions of the different churches are fresh, in the minds of the public. ‘More recently the churches have been; taking an active interest in the race question, both a t home and abroad as evidenced by the recent ac­ tion of the churches in protesting against the action of congress in the m a tter of Japanese immigration. “ This activity of th e churches has diten been criticised but it is inevit­ able th a t as Christian people begin tc take seriously the m o ral ndeals m- plicit in Christianity, they find them ­ selves brought face, to face w ith con­ troverted questions on which they m u st take some stand if they are not to forfeit th e ir influence as m o ral leaders, ' i t is c lear that if the church­ es are to act wisely they m u st be in possession of th e relevant facts.” Uncle Eben \My ole mule,” said Uncle Eben, “balked in de middle of de road, held up a line o’ flivvers an’ kicked at de traffic cop.
