book agents come at you with the kind of approach that keeps you from suspecting they have anything to sell They have chosen you among all men to become the recipient of a free set of books that are being introduced in this new and interesting represent an organization which is restor ing of great Americans They are advance representatives of a national exposition of great edu cational value to the American school boy They are sverythirig in the Known world except book agents Of course before they are thru win their carefully built up patter you discover the book and the hook they have something to sell It is so little each month I that it is indescribably trivial Queer that salesmen and saleswomen as clever as book agents often are do not gratify their prospects once in a while by coming right out and saying I a book to sell The price is neither too low nor too high It is reasonable Here is the book Have a look at it Do youwant it No Very well Such a book agent might not be unwelcome and tie might sell some books Altho even then most fcer 5ons would prefer to buy it from a local book store or procure it from the local library THE OLD HOME TOWN By Stanley WHY NOT QUIT FIGHTING TT IS about time to stop fighting between the two important waterway movements of the middle west Led by the lake states is themovement tor the Great LakesSt Lawrence canal Led by Chi cago and Illinois and joined in by all of the Missis sippi Valley states is the movement for development of the Mississippi and Missouri river waterway For some time past there has been an apparent hostility and jealousy between these two movements and just at the moment it appears that they are becoming so j mutually antagonistic as to be concerning themselves I more with spiking each other than with their own con i struct ve activities The lake states are trying to shut off water di version at Chicago which supplies the water to carry barges down the canal to the Mississippi and the gulf The Illinois people are retaliating by a propaganda designed to show that the Great LakesSt Lawrence is not economically feasible This is a deplorable situation in that the energies which should be directed to constructive effort to put both of thcse matters across as soon as possible are being frittered away in a wordy wrangle that is only waterwaysare vital to the economic development of the middle west Each will be mu tually helpful to the other when they are completed Together they will create an economic crossroads of world affairs which will make this section of the country the most highly developed busy and prosper ous region of any in the world Each is a shortcut certain corners of the world to the farm and y territory of the middlewest And there is not mid not be any conflict between has own territory to serve which affects the other not Vail S Lets Have we served YOU thru our Washington In formation Bureau Send your inquiry to the Globe Gazette Information Bureau

all going to take the pro posal back to their governments and are reported in favor of it i But it doesnt follow that the idea has reached anything like approval There are too many compli cations What will governments use for money in those countries dependent upon high tariff walls for revenue in a customs union What will protected in dustries say in countries where they have a nice monopoly on the home market And what about the nationallyorganized government supported cartels or trusts which comprise whole industries and entire supplies of raw materials when being invited to let down the

illusions in this workaday world 5s the illconsidered belief on the part of the average man that he desires inactivity Men are forever saying to each other that they ue tired of the wear and tear of

ex ternal and internal and the treatment must take thi into consideration CAUSES Internal The internal causes may be a sensitization to some protein or a derangement due to an exces of the starches

bronchial and nasal migraine one sided and other In case of eczema in breastfed babies the irritant comes thru the moth ers milk so her diet must be investigated There are protein skin tests which will disclose the offending ones The foods that most often offend are egg whites wheat tomatoes and milk There is a case reported of a baby five months old who suffered from eczema who was not having anything to eat except her milk formula but the skin tests showed a sensitization to wheat protein It was found the milk came from a cow which had a large portion of wheat bran in its feed When milk from cows which were in pasture was used the eczema cleared up You tell me your baby is undernourished Mrs K so evidently she is not having an excess of the starches sugars and fats so perhaps she is sensitive to some protein If this is the case the only way to tell which one is the she can be given the is to take away one food at a time to see if it makes any difference It may be possible she is sensitized to milk as one doctor has told you and if that is so you may have to cut it down to a pint a day or even cut it out entirely Sometimes it is the excess of the offending protein that causes the allergy Then you should make It up by giving the baby some milk mad a of an almond or peanut butter A level tablespoonful the butter with five ounces of water would give a of 100 calories It would give around 15 to 20 calories of protein which would be about the same as you would get in five ounces of skim milk Nut protein is avery good protein The almond has an even higher percentage of lime than does milk and the peanut has about half as much as the milk The chief thing that would be lacking in the nut milks would be vitamin A so she should have some cod liver oil every day Even tho eczema is due to some systemic cause there are local changes in the skin which will persist unless external treatment is also given In the next issue I will tell you about the local treatment of
