MAN never came closer to the gods than

are. sharply appropriate this Christmas, when
"Merry Christmas" may 'sound hollow, anri
"Peace on earth-gpod will toward men"
can, at the best, have only a prophetic ring.
But "good will toward men" can, and must,
be maintained in this world. And what bet-
ter way to maintain it than in literally giv-
ing health to men? This we do when we buy

The grim curve of tuberculosis has always
swung upward during times like -these. We
can prevent this deadly climb. We can even
continue to force it 'downward as we have
during the .past'# thirty-odd years. '
We are armed against tuberculosis as never
before. We know far more about methods of
prevention, diagnosis and treatment. There
are more tuberculosis association which can,
if given financial support through this year's
Christmas Seal sale, handle the heavy work
We have all read of the chest X-rays for
tubercuolsis being given selective service men
at Camp Blanding and other centers, and out
of these examinations will come this coun-
try's greatest opportunity to find persons who
are unaware that they have the disease that
keeps the "white plague" on the march a.
the chief killer of persons between 15 and 45.
So we stand a good chance of rewriting,
this time, the familiar grim story of war and
tuberculosis. If we don't rewrite that story,
with all of the knowledge we now have, we
shall justly be accused of criminal neglect
'that resulted in thousands of needless deaths.
We can step into the picture at this point
'because it is our buying and using Christmas
Seals that will keep the light of progress
shining against tuberculosis.

TOYING WITH INFLATION
Congress is getting ready to make a bluff
at tackling the problem of avoiding inflation.
"Bluff" is used with full knowledge of the
purport of the word. It is justified by what
has already happened in Washington and
what is probably going to happen, unless the
American people make themselves more vocal.
Congress certainly recognizes the dangers
of inflation, but seemingly lacks the courage
to meet the problem in the only way it ca;n
be met. Next year is election year, when all
the representatives and one-third of the sen-
ators come up for re-election. Congressmen
from the cities fear the labor vote, and con-
gressmen from the country fear the farmer
vote. Senators fear both blocs. That is why
there is slim chance of any real anti-inflation
Let's explain: To prevent inflation, it is
necessary to place a ceiling on prices of farm
products and manufactured goods; on rents
and on wages. Omit one of these, and the
result is failure. The vicious circle begins.
If farm products are allowed to soar in
price, the cost of living automatically goes
up. City workers find their dollar buys less,
so they ask and through their unions usually
get higher wages. Manufacturers of shoes,
clothing, hats, furniture and everything else ited, while his good wife has been

you. On -the practical side, too, you can
crochet all of these gifts yourself, for a
mere pittance. Three balls each of red and
white pearl cotton will make a set of four
hangers that will do honor to the most
pretentious clothes closet. The crocheted glass jackets are handy for.the
hostess and they'll be gay and festive in red, white and blue-pearl cotton.
Use variegated pearl cotton to crochet the set of hot plate nats which
will give the desired protection and lend a not#.bf color to a fble setting.
For a'good cook on your list, apke a set of two or four of these pot-
holders.' Use two shades of pearl cotton reversing your colors to make
some light with dark lettering, others dark with ltht Directions for.

Playing At Port
Jack Benny Plays Title Role Sup-
ported By Kay Francis and
Jack Benny, rated as the great-
est comedian of our time, makes
his bow as a woman in the im-
mortal comedy, "Charley's Aunt,"
at the Port theater Sunday and
The story is that of Jack who
helps out two college pals by mas-
querading as his friend's aunt.
While clothed as the aunt, he
chaperones two young ladies and
receive. two marriage proposals.
Then, at the height of his imper-
sonation, the real aunt comes on
the scene. How he and his friends
get out of their predicament makes
for one of the funniest comedy cli-
maxes yet screened.
Preview audiences hailed Jack
Benny's performance and called
him the funniest thing in skirts.
Kay Francis is the real aunt who
turns up at the wrong time, and
James Ellison is the friend who
needs the help.
An impressive cast of laugh-
provokers have placed in the sup-
norting roles to make this the
funniest comedy of the year. They
are Edmund Gwenn, Anne Baxter,
Reginald Owen, Arleen Whelan,
Laird Cregar and Nrnest Cossart.
