The importance of medical research is drawn attention journalism altogether on account ot j ccntly published In the London Times (filing eyesight. !hy Sir James Mackenzie, an eminent friends will regret to loam otjmedlcnl man, in which he refers to his affliction and trust that with I the of the war when com- proper care his eyesight can ttsrsd. be re-lpulsory service brought the hulk of .the 'male population of military age under- medical-reviaw. The standard THE STATE AND ITS EMPLOYEES I item In the Saturday issue ui the Herald calls attention to tho Inadequate remuneration the State too often gives its employees. Dr. James S. atewnrt; It states, aironitnenf geo- logist, with tho highest attainable uni- versity degree after ten years' experi- ienca with the geological survey, and is the Edmon- ton district of geological 'survey, has tendered his resignation. But here's Ihe rub, in doing so he relinquishes a salary-of J2100 a year. For a man-of his attainments-and for the services lie was in a'poslliiin to render, par- ticularly la what he has been specializ- ing on, the gas and oil possibilities of Alberta and the Northwest, and in the bureau of information y.-hen not en. gaged in special field .work, it is a case, in which the State has by no means been considerate 10 Us servant (11 the way pecuniary compensa- tion for value received. Many a man of less attainments than Dr. Stewart' la drawing a larger salary in private employ than he was receiving, nnd nis experience is n poor incentive for a man to give lils'talcnla for the beiieti! ol the State. Sue: policy is not only niggardly but foolisl in the cxlreme, if the State is to pro Jit by the best intelligence of thi people being placed at Us service The State can be Eetioroii. to its servanls in the'measure lhai services'are of benefit to tbe Stale FalUns Ihls the Stale Is bound i II should not be marie possible fo an employee of the Slate to throw up an appointment he holds, of sue' A nature'as lhal which Dr. Stewar held, for, no doubt, a more lucraltv ono which a private concern offer him. The SUls should ho tlie las to "sweat" Its employees. By such process It elands lo lose and not I gain In tho long run. The casii i Stewart is an open reproach the Stile whlt-h employed him. It as much a matter for Ihe Stale Appreciate the value uf Its employe tt a commercial asset, as it Is bus EMS tor private employers to do PUTTINO CANADA ON THE STRAIGHT ROAD Premier Stewart says the way nioel the "red" Is by counter propaganda.

We'mu'st the about Ibe .freedom and justice, nnd opportunities 'Ih'at under our system of government be- fore the people. Tf we do not thero will b8 those who will swallow Iho "red" dose, dimply because nothing Is done to enlighten then) If ire say the "red" propaganda is In the circumstances low, but it as divulged that too large a propor- on of those who were passed as fit r active service gave way to a de- ree of strain theoretically and actu- ly harmless to ordinary men. Sir lines Mackenzie attributed these' ds- ects rand the failure to detect them ignorance, of 'symptoms, especially tie symptoms-of-lhe early stages of seases; lie himself has instltuled a yslcm by which'with the assistance Ihe.general practitioners in.St. An- rew's; Scotland, he hopes'-, to trace ymploms from their first appear- nce in those who are still heallhy up 0 tho acute stages ol .diseases and own the recurrence of ap- arently normal .'health. With the aid medical research sup- lies, a new field has been now open- d up, and the Times calls atteution o a report submitted by Sir George s'ewman to the Board of Education In which ho pays a high tribute lo the eachlng of Sir James .Mackenzie and oreshadows a broad which chool children shall be n-alched in ealth arid sickness with the direct ibject of improving the physique of he nation nnd ol elucidating Iho signl- icance of symptoms. We have some .nch system In the schools In (he city >ut it has not yet come to the stage of importance being placed on the significance of symptoms. The Medical Correspondent of the Times draws attention to the facl hat "the general practitioner Is the foot-soldier lo tho baltle with disease. He H Is who has to survey the mass of tlto population and on whose know- ledge the fr.te of most of us depends. Ihe greater part of hla training is received from teachers whose clinical experience Is slight or s derived almost wholly from Iho ad- vanced cases of disease met with in hospital wards or consulting practice. Patients come to the general practi- tioner when they are merely when they feel below par, when their rohjcle contained five other occupants, all little boys, ot whom three were grandchildren or Mr. liohne. After his unfortunate ducking, Mr. Bohne scrambled to the ice and finally suc- ceeded In extricating himself from the cold clutches of "the river.' He turned and viewed tho scene. He saw hoth horses in the water, one of them hope- lessly down but with Its head stil above water. The other aulmal was luadly endeavoring to' gain a footing upon Ihe Ice bank.. He saw wagoi standing at a violent lilt. He cotintet the boys supposed to be with him, ant saw only four. There could be bu one conclusion Ihe missing chili must be In the water. Mr. Bobne gal lantly leaped into the cold crugl d1 peering hither and Ihither for a ham! a bit of cloth or a head- of hair whicl ho might grasp and save a life.
