In an article in th3 OUTLOOK for July, 1907, he described a stamp he had received in the mail from a friend in Denmark, where they had been sold tj raise money for a hospital for tuberculous children. Riis urged the adoption of the Idea in the United States. This article came to the attention of Emily Bissell of Wilmington, Delaware, who decided to use seals as a means of raising money for a similar hospital on the banks of the Brandywine River. She designed the first seal, sold during the Christmas holidays of 1907. The next year the project became national. After that tuberculosis associations soon were formed In every state and lu many cities and towns, until today, as the sale of the 2Sth Christmas Seal begins, there are 2084 such tuberculosis associations and committees In the counAnd Instead of less than 200 trysanatoria, there are now 633.

He said that other "charity" stamps had come and gone without finding continuous public favor. "I think 1 can guess the reason," wrote Riis. "They didn't have the right spokesman. It remained for Hans Chris tian Andersen's countrymen to en list Santa Claus." "What 1 want to know," continued Riis, "is why we cannot here bor row a leaf from Santa Claus' Danish year book, and do as tbey have done. Why should we not have Christmas stamp, printed by tuberculosis committee, not for the purpose of building a hospital let each state or town build its own but for the purpose of rousing up and educating the people In this most important matter? What might it not mean In revenue to finance the cause that creeps along where It ought to run? But, much more than that, what might It not be made to mean as an educating medium in fighting the White Plague? Practically every man who saw this stamr on a letter, or on a postal-carit Is posted on both In Denmark would want to know what It meant. And when people want to know, half the fight is won. It is because they do not know a few amazingly simple things that people die of tuber culosis. "I am pleading for the half mil lion poor souls all over the land whose faces are sot today toward an inevitable grave because of igno rance, heedless Ignorance, and for the friends who grieve with them and for them." Since the above was published the death rate from tuberculosis In the United States has been reduced which means a almost saving today of 150,000 lives per year. Despite this fact, one out of every Ave deaths among persons between 15 and 45 Is due to this disease. The war waged with money from Christmas Seals must go on unabated, until tuberculosis Is utterly banished d Bridge Parties Jl I I 1 " Co me in and compare our 4jwnti(y CHKiiTusf mm By J. A. McNaUKlUon LOS ANGELES TIh Los Angeles Branch of the Agricltural Credit Corporation is under way with am ple funds for all worthy purjxwcs. A large number of applications hav been received including applications for loans on Real Estate which are entirely foreign to the purpose of this organization.

It looks like about the only safe rule that can be followed with respect to stocker and feeder loans is to base them on the present values, meaning that prospective feeders should figure on fattening their cattle and marketing them at the present fat prices. The local cattle market has reacted a quarter to fifty cents higher than a week ago and the undertone seems stronger, although hog prices which showed a constant rise for several success ive days are again showing weakness with a tendency to slip back, thus confirming what we have said right along, that there can be no permanent appreciation in values witthout sustained buying power which must come from labor employment. Local feed lot supplies are plenti ful but not alarming. There are a- bout 20,000 cattle on feed in Los An geles County, which means 20 days supply for only the Los Angeles market. Those cattle will be topped out and marketed from time to time as they are ready. This supply especially at feed lots close to the market is always a hazard because it is a visible supply and one which the packers may draw on at will. Local meat conditions are relativ ely good. Up to this time Southern California has shown an increased consumption of meat food supplies. This situation has been helped some by the big fleet in the Pacific Wat ers drawing their supplies from the west coast and assisting In the ab sorption of what otherwise might have been a surplus but now the volume is just holding its own with last year, and the price of beef ranging from 20 per cent to 25 per cent lower than a year ago. Tne exception Is Baby Beef which has held its own as compared to last years prices. w recent compilation of figures in connection with the unemployment situation in this locality indic ated that the meat packing Institu tions are empolying a larger num ber of men than they did in 1929, due to the Increased volume and and spreading the umployment wages among a greater number. It should be recognized tnat Tne packing business Is highly special ized, required a large percenage oi skilled labor. Nevertheless, the attitude of the packers has been to eooperate to the utmost in absorbing a portion of our surplus labor. A have taken our place among the nations and empires of the earth."

Duck feathers, fox pelts, farm produce and even live slock comprised tuition fees of fered by students entering Illinois Weslejan university when It opened for the fall term recently. Nate Crahtree, business manager of the school, said the offer of the duck feathers came from a girl In Missouri. Her father, he said, owned a duck farm. Unusual "fees" were offered as a result of an announcement by the school authorities that they would accept farm produce In lieu of cash because of economic conditions. The produce was to be accepted at prices ranging from 5 to 20 per cent above the market quotations. Approximately 25 Btudents took advantage of the school's offer. As a result the university now has stored In local warehouses and elevators an abundance of potatoes, corn, wheat, oats and other staple products.
