PUBLIC HEALTH NURSING
At the suggestion of the United
States public health service and with
its co-operation, public health summer
schools are being conducted at four
of the leading universities in the coun-
try. Michigan has been designated as
one of these health centers and pro-
gressive physicians and sanitarians
are taking advantage of the offered
opportunities for a vacation in school.
The discovery of new scientific facts
and the awakening of-the public to the
importance of public health measures
is not the most pressing problem con-
fronting workers in the field of public
health. Their problem is rather one
of personnel. People of today are de-
manding protection from the vast loss-
es and great suffering caused by pre-
ventable diseases more than ever be-f
fore because they are familiar with
public health measures, but we face
the serious aspect of the problem
when we realize that too few people
are edequately trained for public
The public health summer school
aims to provide up-to-date intensive
training in this field and to furnish in-
struction which will enable physic-
ians o deal effecively with the causes
of mortality and disability. But the
summer school can do more than this.
It can and will' establish a more co-
operative relationship in the work of.

It is significant to note that the
brain of Cro-Magnon man was of
equal if not greater capacity than
that of modern man.
The invention of the sewing ma-
chine was of no greater importance
than the invention of the needle; the
invention of the lucifer match was
certainly of less moment than the dis-

Some "cave men" must have been
giants in mentality.
All keynote speeches ane made up
largely of buncome. This has been
demonstrated not only in the present
year of political grace but in every
year. The judicious may grieve, but
the buncombe persists. At every com-
vention, politicians choose, as did the
Democrats this year, a typical orator
of what is known as the "old school"
for the initial effort. And the key-
note speaker, as did Pat Harrision
the other day, goes to it with full
speed. The purpose is to rouse the
After all, what is a convention? A
convention is a gathering-a gather-
ing of thousands of people. Now the
problem of the leaders of any politic-
al machine is to transform this gath-
ering of thousands into a mob. This
is rabble-rousing. A mob or a rab-
ble is a gathering of people swayed
not by reason but by passion. This
is the mental state that politicians
desire. The politician is an excellent
psychologist; if rabble-rousing did
not serve a useful purpose, the polit-
icians would have discarded it long
ago. Perhaps this may serve to ex-
plain keynote speeches in general, and
Senator Harrison in particular.
"Lying is like borrowing or appro-
priating in music. It is only a good,
sound, truthful person who can lie to
any good purpose; if a man is not
habitually truthful his very lies will
be false to him and betray him. The
converse is also true; if a man is not
a good, sound, honest, capable liar
there is not truth in him. Any fool
can tell the truth, but it requires a
man of some sense to know how to
lie well."-Samuel Butler.

(The Chicago Tribune)
A strict censorship has prevented
us from following in detail the de-
velopment of the crisis in Italy creat-
l ed by the abduction ana murder of
the Socialist deputy, Matteotti. It ev-
idently has been serious enough to
force Sig. Mussolini's hand and com-
pel him to consent to a considerable
restoration of parliamentary forms.
But our correspondent at Rome, Mr.
-Sheehan, notes that the Socialists ad-
mit Mussolini could have maintained
the dictatorship for some time despite
the scandals which have shaken the
prestidge of his regime, and they are
grateful for the concessions Mussolini
has chosen to make without the comL
pulsion of political necessity.
It is evident that no fleck of stain
has fallen upon the redoubtable mas-
ter of Italy, and we hazard a long
distance opinion that when he has
cleaned house a bit he will be strong-
er in the new situation than in the
one he relinquishes. This is not the
age for permanent dictatorships, and
while Italian parliamentarism is com-
paratively young and of late years
seriously discredited, there is too
strong a sentiment of liberty to rest
quite easy under an extra legal and
personal control, 'even though its pur-
ity of purpose and practical benefits
are generally conceded.
But released from the responsibil-
ities of an extra-legal authority, vol-
untarily relinquished, Mussolini will
gain, we suspect, rather than lose in
influence. The Italians show no in-
clination to submit the ship of state to
doctrinaires or to wrangling political
tacticians of the old school. Italy
needs a strong, consistent government
such as Mussolini, and probably he
alone, can maintain. There is no one,
it seems to us, who has so. clear a
conception of what Italy needs as
Mussolini, and none but he with the
character required to pursue the ne-
cessary course of policy. He' saved
Italy from the morass of commun-
ism. He knows Italy industry cannot
prosper under the load of bureaucra-
tic waste or survive perpetual indus-
trial warfare. He has the wisdom to
see that Italy needs the stimulus of
private initiative, the relief of govern-
ment economics, the assurance of po-
In this his fearlessness and master-
ful will have the sup rt of the sub-
stantial classes and, above all, of
Italy's young manhood.
; ;Mussoini's williingness to incor-
porate the blackshirt militia in the
army indicates his confidence in the
vitality of Fascismo, and we have no
doubt in any future crisis he will find
that the army can be depended upon,
