AUGUST 22,' 1940 rFishGo0d Food Cooked By W. E. Allen people are well aware that es, and other fruits are by "wornls", or that free from infestation by ; with poisons in earl:,- stages 'th. It is well known also that corn, and other vegetables of "wornls" ill to keep them out. most of us give little thought alatter. Even when we bite an :a cherry too hastily and find have bitten into a "worm" we momentarily disgusted. irange, therefore, that the at- . most of us toward wormy is considerably different. I vn persons who appeared to nauseated by mere mention animals, or man. In the :1 of my boyhood had to be discussed more connection with sickness of : animals or human beings, but ussion was usually as indirect possible. The general given to a youngster was presence of worms was dis- and its mention vulgar. In ! attitude was even more ex- COurse, we know to-day that n may occur at times through of the victim, although it is hdy habits help to avoid it. Y Some one may snggest that m vegetables and fruits were :n regarded with disgust be- ey were not true worms, be- the young stages of butte'r- moths, or other insects. More PAGE NINE probably, they excited less disgust or antagonism because they were more familiar to all persons who used fresh fruits and vegetables. As a matter of fact, there was good reason for the difference in attitude because few "worms" infesting fruits and vegetables could do any direct harm to man or animdls, while many of the worms in- festing animals could do direct injury to a man or another animal who ate raw flesh or who was careless in his contacts. Although the word "worm" has no very accurate meaning, it may be said that plants are "more often infested by worm-like stages of insects while animals are more often infested by parasites having fairly good rights to be called worms. Still, it must be ad- mitred that plants suffer excessively at times from infestations of "round worms" much like some of those which attack animals. Also that animals some- times suffer excessively from infesta- tions by the young of insects. If any of us ever have given atten- tion to worms in fishes we probably have noticed only that tape worms in- habit the digestive tract, especially some part of the intestine. Some kinds of "rock cod" nearly always contain tape-worms which thrive in their in- testines. Perhaps some of us would be inclined to throw away a fish if we found it to be thus infested, but if the CHRISTIAN SCIENCE CHURCHES "Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul." This verse front the Psalms was the Golden Text in the Lesson-Sermon on "Soul" on Sunday in all Churches of Christ, Scientist. One of the Scriptural selections in the Lesson-Sermon presented these words of ~esu~rom-+~+iatthew: "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." These verses from I Corinthians were also, included: "But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God." Passages from the Christian Science textbook "Science and Health with Key to the scriptures," by Mary Baker Ed- dy, stated: "Man is the offspring, not of the lowest, but of the highest quali- ties of Mind. Man understands spiritual existence in proportion as his treasures of Truth and Love are enlarged." "Soul has infinite resources with which to bless mankind, and. happiness would be COMPULSORY TRAINING AS VIEWED BY PERSHING (By General John J. Pershing) "Let me say that if we had adopted compulsory military training in 1914 it would not have been necessary for .us-to-~end partially trained boys into battle~ainst the veteran troops Qf onr adver-ffa,-y, and certainly we could have ended the conflict nmch sooner, with the saving of many thousafids of lives and billions of treasure. Coming down to the present war in Europe, it is perfectly evident that if nniversal nfilitarv training had been the practice in (]reat Britian the re- sults would have been vastly different. in modern war the advantage is de- cidedly on the side that is ready. "In its effect upon the individual, there is no doubt but that universal military training would be productive of great benefit to the youth of the nation, both as citizens and as pro- spective soldiers. Such training would develop respect for constituted author- ity; it would impress the individual with his obligation to and pride in his country, in contrast to the present tendency to emphasize the responsibil- ity of the nation to the individual. It would improve the physicial develop- ment of our young men, as well as promote their general health.
