The entire world is watching
with keen interest the titanic
contest in Northern France be
tween the Kaiser's troops and
the allied armies of England nnd
France. Late Paris and London
telegrnms indicate that the Ger
mans are making a strong defen
sive fight on the north bank of
the Aisnc River and are being
attacked by the combined Fran
co-British armies from a position
on the north bank of that river.
The most important development
of the week was the sinking of
three British men of war by a
Ucrman submarine, in winch al
most 1700 lives were lost.

Americans do not dislike Got'

as there is any discrimination
at all among the elements that
make up our population, thoGer

Americans aro unhappy for the

The terms "health conserva
tion" nnd " preventive medicine"
are very much on the public
tonguo and before the public
eye those days. In times of
gonernl unrest, popular words
and phrases frequently exercise
a strange spell over the public
imagination. They nre taken
as slogans or marching orders
by many, who arc lionestly try
ing to improve existing con
ditions. Special interests, seek
ing unfair advantago or mon
opoly power, aro quick to seize
upon popular terms and use
them to further their personal
advantmro which could not be
At the present time a striking
illustration of this character is
seen in the employment by the
doctors of the dominant medical
school, of popular terms and
catch phrases to assist in carry

which is declared to be aimed
at establishing Stato Medicine.
Tho great work of conserva
tion of natural resources and
tiie still more important efforts
to conserve tho gonernl health of
tho people by improving social,
economic nnd moral conditions,
have led tho political doctors to

Thoy are quite wrong, and there
