MADISON, Wis.—Compulsory sick-

ness insurance is not a gift of ben-

eficent government. It is legislation

that must be purchased, always here-

tofore by a tax upon every pay check,

no matter how small, generally by an

accompanying employer pay-roll'tax

-and thus to commodity prices, and

• achievements of our country is the

f purchase price inherent to the opera.

': must be paid in more Intangible but

3 in far more costly terms.

ji If the people are to be asked to

£ purchase such a system, is it not

'{'"time that the package be unwrapped?

/)? Should not each be . entlUed»tp judge

• 1 for himself -whether, as result of pay-

ment of this total purchase price,

i something of value will be received

•by the purchaser? As the recent re-

! port of the Federal Government s In-

terdepartmental Committee to Co-

iordinate Health and Welfare Acttvi-

Uies so well pointed out in referring

"to voluntary insurances—proof ot

'. value lies not in good intentions or

statement of "high purpose but in

• actual accomplishments.' '

If we are to establish in the Unit

.ed States in 1940 a system that was

"'• first passed in Germany to meet con-

ditions of 1883 and in England to

• meet conditions in 1911. we must first

Ascertaining Costs

One who studies the operation of

i these svstems_abt9ad learns that out

£of : -evefy study," Veealdless of tha

^country, certain factors are always

pof such repeated prominence as to

intake it certain that these factors are

[Inherent to the systeMi" To .judge

^of the value of the proposed purchase

of compulsory, sickness insurance we

must know these costs as well as the

tax costs.

- The first of these costs, named in

One recent report as the "diseases

of insurance schemes." lies in the

[fact that the income Is fixed. . The

percentage of the . pav check that

nay- be set aside by compulsion for

sickness service, particularly among

the lower income earners, is not un-

limited. In Wisconsin, In proposed

jleKlslatlon. there was to be a 2 per

.dent Pav check deduction and another

|.'3--per cent pay-roll tax to raise the

total of i Per cent of the Pay roll

that was stated to be the minimum

Income required for basic sickness

service. Even a 2 per cent pay check

,tax, particularly when added to other

[pay-check deductions, mny of itself

^interfere with the filling nf other

vital needs, the lack of which will of

defV'ntv contribute to Illness rather

tbajf bealtp.

Equally/important, the legislative

proponen/who has promised a com-

plete service for thn tax lo be paid

will find it politically Inexpedient If

not political suicide to ri'tmn nnd

admit that the tax Is insulllcient nnd

toors must bo tnltcn. That 'Iocs not

happen abroad. But COMM of .sound

services for the sick do Indonsr.

Socially these costs of newer methods'

of preserving llfo itself nro i-lirap,

but tho sickness Insurance svntrm,

without sources of other Income

must get along on what It ha*. Hunks

must bo balanced. Thcro nro I-U1I-H

•for patients nnd regulations for

Physicians. Tho observer Is ctniii-

Of slckneas jure that tromendouslv

•disturbs tho'Amcrlcan physician to

•whom It Is «o foreign. It l« an Im-

portant and certain. portion of .the

purchase price. .

' Secondly, the system has no means

of .knowing, what demands will be

made upon it within a year. So the

wise administrator seeks first of all

to Insure not'high service to the sick

but. what is most important to~~hlm

the financial solvency of his system.

Commonly this is dorte by paying the

Physician a stipulated amount a year

for each insured person who selects

him to serve his needs during the

year. But of itself this means that

the insured must select his physician

when he\ioins the system and pot

on the basis,of his 'illness needs at

the time thev' develop. Free choice

of physician as we know it cannot-

prevail. Nor does it. And; that, too,

is raw of th* purchase price.

Thirdly, these systems do not ad-

minister themselves without cost any

more than does an>- insurance sys-

jlcni. Sickness insurance is the most

costlv of all social insurances to ad-

minister. Is the covered person sick

in the sense that the law defines sick-

ness? Is .the employer paying his

share of the tax and deducting the

employee's share,from his pay check

and then remitting, both to' the sys-.

tern? Is, the-physician using more

expensive procedures than the sys-

tem sets forth as acceptable in its

book of rules for tKe physician? Is

the natierit 'being hospitalized at the

expense of the system for to'o lonjr

a period of time? Is the individual

who claims extensive benefits merely

overly apprehensive of his condition,

Does his illness' really prevent his

return to work? Is the prescription

priced cnrrenlly by. the pharmacist?

Administrative Cost

To know the answer to these and

other important'administrative ques-

tions Is a necessity of .systems. To

answer tHese questions requires an

administrative" expense never under

an admitted'10 per cent of all income

and apparently more nearly 15 to 18

per cent. • "

One 'result is not more money for

sickness care, but -less. A further

result is an administrative force that

will number at least one for each

•100 persons insured. : , _-..

But of far ..graver consequence is

the fact that the administrator In-

evltablv must-abandon the thought

of his being guardian of health in

order to become the conservator of

insufficient funds.

The income Is at a frozen level.

The demand for benefits grows and

costs mount. Whether they wish it

or. not they find the 'purse strings

must be tight. Both the physician

and patient must be controlled.

Whenever sickness care requires

neW expenditures the needs must be

prb'ven at costs within the means

of the system to' afford. The pre-

ventive aspects, which would uncover

still more demands, are submerged

year, bv vear until the entire sys-

tem and all who serve it become con.

ccrncd onlv^-with salvage. As the re-

cent survey of British Health Ser-

ylco states. "The Nation needs slck-

•ncs3 services, but a Nation which

writes them as• a substitute - for

health service is going to find the

confusion expensive in money and


Finally, we do not think In the

United States now of physicians by

race, religion,'! or politics. . We eval

uate them only on their individual

abilities. -But what safeguards can

we erect to make certain that under

such a system we do not have a

political as well as administrative

medicine? It has happened of cer-

tainty under at least one system

abroad. In the bill for a system in

Wisconsin la the drafting of whLch

an employee of the Social Security

Board assisted,' the lay administrator

who selects the physician could dis-

charge him at -will. He would be

without hope of successful 1 appeal to

the courts unless the administrator

was so careless a3 not to follow the

procodure outlined. Is this conduc-

Ive to the best sickness care? The

answer iresTrrorirPsayiTrZ-it-w-Ul.-not

happen but in pointing out wherein

it can be prevented.

Great efforts in social Insurance,

once established with millions pay-

ing for future promised benefits, may

not be abandoned freely. If we de-

termine to make the" purchase we

do so for all years to come. We can-

not restore the-Amerlcan concept of

personalized care to meet individual

needs If""wo" amputato it. /"

We have health problems—many

0? them indeed created by our cons-

tant health advance that makes it

possible for a Surgeon General of the

United States Public Health Service

to sav within the vear. "A greater

advance has been made in the public

health In tho United, States within

the-past two vears than ever before

within, a comparable period."

Rightfully and properly the status

of our public health is the concern

of our citizenry.

Rightfully wo must look at all poe-

slblo means of. further economic se-

curity. If. in this proposal, we are

to purchase a degree of further ec-

onomic security at the cost ot not

only trixes but sickness dare deficient

In quality arid restricted as to quan-

tity, is not that price too high?

At )l/t Jfwt Iwo convenllnnfl, tijfl

Inetltuto has passed resolutions op-

posing such socialization as being In-

imical to both medical practice and

the public welfare. - .

""Specifically," said Dr. Allyn, "we

are opposed to compulsory sickness

insurance, the form that socialized

medicine would be most likely to

take under the' Wagner bill.

"There are approximately 160,000

doctors in the United States, or about

one-tenth of 1 per cent.ot the pop-

ulation. It it were.simply,a case ot

the doctors being the- only ones to

suffer from enactment of the Wagner

bill, we could notclalm a very strong

argument against it. But the'pro-

visions of the bill are decidedly

against the public interests; because

lower quality of medical care would

be tho outcome."

Dr. AlJvn raised the objection that

the three Federal agencies which

would administer the act—the chief

of the- Children's Bureau, the Sur-

Keon-Gencral "of the Public Health

Service, and the Social Security

Boa.rd=-could wield vast. Influence,

through the power they would have

to withhold ' funds (offered on a

matching basis) from any state

whose state-controlled medical pro-

gram did not conform with what the

Federal government might dictate.

"It means," ho said, .'.'that health

and medical activities would bo ab-

solutely dominated from a central

bureau jn Washington.

. Example .in Europe.

"We have, seen wSaf ifiitT Has 7

meant in some European countries

where such bureaucratic cqntrol and

socialization of medicine has been

invoked. It has opened the way to

regimentation of 'all sorts,' finally

affedStlng rellg(ous as well as social

social liberties.'' '

Dr. Allvn further warned-that,the

administration of -medical' Ser^ce/

and the Practice of medicine, would

become involved in polltlcs.,unde,r this

Wagner bill.

"Government control, which is

clearlv established in the" measure,"

he „ said, "means political Control.

Politically managed things never

have been as efficient as those Indi-

vidually or-privately operated."

High Health Record.

On that basis, together with the

experience of European -countries,

Dr. Allvn predicted that an Inferior

quality of medical service would rc-

ault. ... , . - .

He emphasized the health record

of the. United' States Is how on a

higher level than in any) country in

the world.

"Consequently." • he added,, "there

Is absolutely no basis for trying to

push the measure through asa'med-

ical emergency.' " '' .

To tho argument that the funda-

mental Intent of the bill is fo.pro-

vlde medical,service for the indigent,

Dr. Allvn pointed out that the word

"indigent" is not mentioned in the

legislation. . :'

"We must look, too. at the cost of

this .measure." • said Dr. Allyn. "Its

expense would be an undue burden

on the body politic. The National

Health Conference has estimated

that the cost of administering It would

go as high as $2,000,000,000 to 54,000-.

000,000 annually. That is. from $20

to $40 a vear for every man, woman

and child in the United States. No

limit is placed on the ultimate annual


He added that approval of the bill

would be "like signing a blank

check." and that there were no prov-

en needs—no statistics—to warrant

expenditure of su,ch huge sums.

"The American Institute of Hcjm-

eopathy," he said.' "thus firmly be-

lieves that such bureaucratic control

inMhe field of medical care and pub-

lic health activities would be con-

trary to the best. interests of he

American people." • '

stopped.at Point Four. "A raw. vegetable ones a day," the read out to the

friend wbo.waa with her, "Now, I usually run out of ideas when it comes

.to aerving vegetables raw.My femily [ikes sliced tomatoes, cole .law"

hearts of celery, and the like, but my husband and the boys aren't very

. partial to salads." '

', Well, J'm not partlalto salads either, unless they we put toeether

with an eye to crispness and appetizing flavor" 1 am

just as indifferent as any man to,what has been

described as "a bit cf something on a tiny plate served

with the main dish." I usually push it aside, too; So

don t let the- sa|ad stand waiting on the table to lose

Its crisp freshness. Take the makings from a tefri-

iterator at the last minute.


DlHCtOt «(

Good Houufteepmi


I've found&hat most people—men Included—are

very/partial to the salad that is muted, or tossed in a

capacious bowl—the salad-bowl salad. It seems to give

a salad the uplift it deserves. But the lettuce.or other

greens should be crisp and dry. If they are ,wet, pat

them lightly between the folds of a clean dry towel;

then when the dressing. Is added, It glistens o'n the

leaves, undiluted by water. Avoid servi.ng'laige'leaves

of lettuce in a salad; break them into rather small

.pieces, When the lettuce, romslne, or other, greenj are ready in the towl

with the other ingredients, some prefer to chop them lightly with a knife

and fork before adding the dressing. •

By adding other ingredients to the salad greens you can make this

salad-bowl as.\hearty and as varied in flavor as tastes, appetites and

the meal demand. Cheese—so many kinds of it, crumbled in pieces or cut

in shreds or slivers—is popular with men. Cold meat, home-cooked or

canned, may be prepared in the same way—tongue, ham, chicken, etc

. There 13 no dish quite so versatile as the salad, and it takes the prize

in getting that raw vegetable into the daily meals. Take that good old

stand-by, potato salad. Mixed with pieces of, crisp celery or cucumber,

as much onion as you like, nnd a well-seasoned dressing,-there Is no

tastier dish. Mayonnaise and French and cooked salad dressing-may be

varied in interesting ways by mixing into them crumbled cheese, chopped

hard-cooked egg, chili sauce, pickle, etc. You can boy all three dressings,

or you can make them yourself, Salmon or tuna fish, shrimp, or lobster

combine well with raw vegetables in season—quarters of tomatoes,

cucumbers, celery. . •

Don't be afraid of garlic. When used with discretion It makes many

friends. Rub the salad bowl with a bud of garlic, or let the bud stand in

< the dressing for a while. •

Shredded raw-cabbage In p^ce of greens Is a good basis for salad-

bowl salad. Add sliced~raw apples to the crisp cabbage, or grated raw.

carrots, or pieces of pineapple or avocado and plump raisins', then the

dressing, and you have a toothsome, crunchy dish.

It's fun to mix the salad at the table. Someone Is' always eager to

officiate, even to the extent of lining up_ all the makings from the

refrigerator. The dressing—take your choice—is added last of all and

tossed lightly through the chilled ingredients. At a party, salad-making

is a grand ice-breaker. It can be depended upon to start a lively discussion

on things culinary, and a fruitful exchange of ideas on good food. Even

your most reticent guest wiH'be moved to boBst about his or her special

masterpiece or trick in seasoning. ,

Customs Of Ancient

People Concerning

Food Interesting

" One of the Joy« of writing* page"

of articles about food is the flood of

letters which come In, asking ques-

tions; commenting, pn this and that

—and so on.

• The other day, we had a letter

from a lady asking ,to know what

"Hogg-tide" meant, and whence It

came. The answer may be rather

Interesting to many people.

. It seems that the' last;, of the

Danish kings who ruled••'• England

'was named Hardicanute. He was

an enormous eater. It is said that

finally at a. wedding least at Lam-

' beth he ate so much that he was

seized with a nt-apd. died. The an-

niversary of his' death was . long

"celebrated in England under to-

appropriate name of "Hogg^tlde. 1

Speaking of meals and.table man-

ners In the early Saxon days, brings

to mind • that one of the finest de-

scriptions' of an evening meal It

'Saxon England is found in Sir

Walter Ssott's "Ivanhoe," In the

=• .third and fourth chapters. It Is

h" ; well worth reading.

: As far back as the year 1272,

there were regularly published food

. prices in London, and these were

Jfatea ,by the town, authorities. Here.

are a few of them: . . .

The best hen, 3 half-pence '"""••••

Capon, 2 half-pence

, Goose,' 5 half-pence •

Pigeons, 3 for a penny

Mallatd Duck, 3 for one penny

The' best lamb, 6 pence

Later on, In 1313, Parliament took

up-the matter of the price of eggs

and solemnly ruled that 3 pence for

-2* eggs was about right.

Looking back through English

sinclent books, it is Interesting to

note that in those days, among the

comfortably fixed families, there

were four meals a day—breakfast,

dinner,' supper and .the collation.

The latter was served In bed and

consisted largely of delicate cake,

mulled and spiced wine and choice

liquors, designed to induce slumber.

The time' for going to bed was

f enerally between eight and nine,

fowever, folks got.up early.' When

breakfast time'came, at .seven,

o'clock appetites were good.- One

reads that an earl and his 'ladye

faire" had for breakfast "two loaves

of bread, a quart of- beer, a" quart of

wine, two pieces of salt fish, six

baconed herring, four white herrings

and a dish of spraxs."

If you have any, interesting ques-

—tlons about foods and food customs,

don't hesitate to write and ask

them. , .

somethjne light and tasty. Whdn we

say Jleht, we mean a small meal,—

a simple menu such as chlii con

carni con frlJoles. that can be pur-

chased in cans, with a fruit cup- or

tapioca pudding and" tea or coffee.

If the housewife is so inclined- she

can serve the chill and add another

fine' Mexican touch by preparing

those simple fascinating tortillas that

can be made in a-jlffy (whatever that

may be).


1 cup cornmeal'

1 cup boiling' water

1 teaspoon .salt

Slowly add the bailing water to the

corn meal. Add the salt and mix

well. Shape into very thin, flat Cakes

and bake on an uhgreased griddle.

By G. 'A. Bradihaw—^-

Among the early Dutch colonial houses none

has a more colorful history, than that of Derrick

Van Vechten, Which stands near the new

Manville Road at JFinderne In Somerset County.

The farrh on the north bank of theHaritan was

occupied by a division of the American Army

• during the Winter of 1778-1779.' Van Vechten

Van Vechten House, Finderne

was the host of General and Mrs. Nathaniel

Greene and, gave a Christmas Eve party lor

-General Washington. The house is a twostory

brick structure, covered by a gable roof.

Built about 1720, it is the. earliest two-story

Dutch house still in existence. It remained in

the possession of the Van Vechten family until

the middle of the nineteenth century.

Vacations Daily

Available to All

Need a vacation? Certainly! And

not next month or next summer—but

now! What's more, you don't need

a vacation that the boss gives you,

but 'one that you take yourself.

Everyone ought to have a vacation

every day, and with planning and

wit he can put into short Intervals

all the essentials of a protracted holiday.

So reasons Dr. William Moultoh

Marston, distinguished psycholo-

1747. Who waa her first husband?

i Can anyone supply any information i gist, in the.current Rotarian maga- \

' about the above? - • zlne.

(L. C. C.) Too many of us dwell In the grip

of routine and preoccupation, Dr.

Marston admonishes, but with a bit

of scheming we can change the scene,

the pace, and the habit of our daily

lives without breaking appointments,

being late, or loafing. Mere cessation

of work and aimless' relaxation

aren't enough, the author says, because

vacations must Include seeing

new faces, getting new points of

view, doing different and exciting

things—rekindling that something

which puts sparkle back in eyes,

spring back Into sagging arches.

The lunch hour provides vacation

opportunities for a walk, glimpses of

new surroundings, an exchange of

ideas with truck drivers and college

students in "beaneries" arid cafeterias:

or a few minutes to catch the

drama of the street wltfi a camera,

holds Dr. Marston. EvenHhe visits

be put Into repair and a modern dis-

In 1898 a new piece pf apparatus

was purchased, a Howe pumper, and

thia was in Bervlce until water was

piped through ;he village In 1905. It

must be reme-7'bered that all this ap-

of the company would run to the

building and pull • the 'apparatus

it caused roe to wonder how long the

people In the township would toler->

ate the flagrant disregard of the peo-

ple's rights, and the laws, on the part

of the township officials,' and. the to-

tal ignorance of business manage-

ment and political ethics, on the part

of the officials, as Indicated In the

auditor's report. .

Of course, on -further reflection,

and with a few Inquiries her* and

there of people who have lived bare

most of their lives, I And that a po-

litical machine has saddled Itself up-

on the backs of the taxpayers, and in

view of the lessons that these politi-

cal machines have taught us, we find

that the elections held each year are

comparable to a beauty contest, or a

wrestling- match, where the winner Is

selected and toasted, long before) the

event. And as usual, we, the. public,

are the suckers in each case. On

these occasions, I'm told, "No one

questions the candidates' qualifica-

tions or particular abilities and as a

result we have a township committee

comprised of a captain of "a clam

boat, a superintendent of a cemetery,

a building contractor and a couple of

insurance brokers." •

Then I read the article about the

county board writing off $638,775 In

erroneous assessments, but I didn't

see any names or amounUs printed^

and. I would give a pretty penny lo

see the statistics published that com-

plete that picture, because I'm in-

clined to go along with Mr. Klernan,

who Bald "Tho board has no Juris-

diction in the matter," and I'm-In-

clined to thlnk ; the state fy|ll have

something; to say about thls-ftialter.

(Or will they?) I guess It's too\close

to the big election for a general in-

vestigation, of the township, affairs,

Of course it goes without saying that

aomo peoplo reading this letter will

say, "Oh, he's probably a disgruntled

Domocrat," but the fact of the mat-

ter la, I have never committed my-

aelf to any party, and the facts pre-

sented In tho audit are Indisputable,

and sudlclont for civic consumption

regardless of party. And so I have

chosen" this manner to ascertain

whether- or not there are' others In

this township that feel the same as

I do. And then, too, I muat thank

the newspaper that publishes this for

its co-operation.

Mayor Frake's message Is as follows:

• I am. Indeed, erateful to the citizens

of Little Silver for the high

honor thev have bestowed in reelecting

me. for a second term. I

reeard such election as a vote of

confidence in my past administration

and in the days ahead shall sincerely

strive in everv way possible to

continue worthy of such confidence.

To vou members of the borough

council I wish to express my, sincere,

thanks and ' appreciation for your

ncver-faillne patience, courtesy and

full co-ODeratlon in aiding my administration

of the public business

of Little Silver. I must, too, acknowledge

with erateful thanks the

co-operation and loyalty of the officers

and. employees ol the 'borough.

Everv one has performed his- or her

task well and has aided in making

our borough, a desirable and pleasant

community In which to live.

It Is customary on,'an occasion

such as this for the mayor to submit

a brief report on=»the administration

of< the affairs of the borough.

Of course such a report cannot embody

alljhe details of the operation

of the sovernment. Certain matters,

however, are of such Interest as to

justify emphasis at this time.

The past vear has been a most active

one in the growth of the community

and ot the determination of

problems of policy that will inure

to the future lasting benefit of-Little

Silver. Rldee road, that nart of

Sycamore avenue Ivine within the

borough: -Willow drive. Church

street and Seven Bridee road have

been taken over by tho county- as

countv highways, thereby relieving

the borough of considerable annual

expense-in their proper maintenance.

On the other hand, Crest drive,

Heights terrace, Salem lane. Alden

terrace. Standish road. Carlisle terrace

and a portion of North Sunnyside

drive have been taken over by

the borough as municipal streets located

within certain developments

now being promoted in the community.

Forty-seven new- residences, not

Including earaees or alterations to old

buildings, costing $225,000. have been

erected or are In the course of erection,

and several- other dwellings are

being -planned for immediate construction.,

brlnelnc into the; community

a desirable influx of residents.

With' the co-operation of the

Works • Progress Administration all

the brooks, ditches and waterways

in the borough have been cleaned

out and made available for the natural

drainage of our streets and


A complete revision of the zoning

ordinance has been put into operation,

and with it necessary

amendments to the building code

adopted that will protect the municipality

airalnst unwise planning

of the future growth of the community.

• During the vear PfO3pect 'avenue

has been improved for modern trat-

flec and all of the street? and highways

of the municipality ha«(; received

full attention and care.

.Under a policy of strict econpmy

we are again able to state that the

borough -has met Its every obligation

and has to its credit ~ln the

designated depositories for borough


of 125,000.

In' mr message of- last year mention

was made of the fact ^t we

were about to put into effect garbage

collection as a public' undertaking.

Such- course was followed

and I am able to' say that the collection

of garbage as a public entcrorise

Is meeting with general


Perhaps the greatest question In

the minds of our people Is the matter

of taxation. This should be the

most Important question In our

minds. How to reduce or keep down

the cost of government and still

maintain the efficiency and standards

to which we' are accustomed

must be our constant thought during

the ensuing year..

We are gathered here today for

the purpose of organizing and planning

how together we may. through

united effort, more successfully and

effectively perform the duties which

are our, responsibility. In that spirit

I Pledge vou mv full- co-operation,

best thought- and unbiased' ludg'ment

and know:_that I can expect the

same from each of vou. ,

To all I extend mv best wishes

for a happy and prosperous New

Year. ...: • -

FOOTBALL has its All-American, baseball has its All-Star and

Swing his its Create Band. Swingaddicts may.quarrel with the

selection of musicians as named by Dorothy Killgallen, Broadway

columnist, but she has disarmiagly acknowledged her danger and, in

tome cases, challenged all comers to name better candidates. • •

In Miss KiUgallen's Dream Band selections she names one of-Today

choices for the Dream Band of < All

"Bessie sang with^ the voice of

low and she wailed out lyrics that'

were strange, simple and primitive,

and she made them sound as real is

the sound of a heart breaking. When

she sang, people cried, and Bix
