THE LAW OF THE AIR
(Continued) nautical enterprises, and ultimately produce a service
that in peace will aid commerce, both National and international, and in war or other National necessity make available with little expense a most valuable trained personnel, with an air force which can quickly be made ready for use.
When one considers the enormous sums spent on preparation for military aeronautical use in the Great War, it would appear to be the part of wisdom to take advantage of the knowledge gained by failures as well as successes.
Man's use of the air from now on will constantly increase, both for commercial and military uses, and it is the duty of the citizen to see that the greatest protection be provided as quickly as possible both for “the man on the ground” and “the man in the air.”
It would appear that the best legislation would be based on the 6 Common Welfare? and “ Commerce clauses of the Constitution, enacted into laws for the air on lines similar to the laws that govern the control of navigable rivers. It is hoped that these laws, when put into operation, will permit aviators to comply with the “ laws of the air” without being even by legal theory “trespassers and nui

THE INSANE IN THE NEAR
is not very many years, as world hisunbalanced were treated like brute animals in western Europe, and even in Great Britain. One of the great achievements of modern civilization is the extraordinary progress which has been made in the care and cure of the mentally sick. But in the Orient and the Near East the mediæval attitude towards the insane still prevails. One of the fine pieces of work which Americans are doing for their fellows of the Near East is to help them take proper care of their insane, and a unique agency in this good work is the Lebanon Hospital for Mental Diseases. For that reason we are especially glad to print the following appeal which we have received from the Treasurer of the American Committee of this hospital, Mr. Henry W. Jessup, a well-known member of the New York Bar:
The Lebanon Hospital for Mental Diseases, on the slopes of the Lebanon, above Beirût, weathered the war, but suffered considerable wear and tear by the German and Turkish elements during the long blockade of Syria, and its equipment was greatly run down and depreciated. Its buildings absolutely require immediate repair and its water system must be completely reorganized. All the water for the hospital, laundry, and houses has to be carried and for long distances, and baths and scrubbing of floors have had to be reduced to a minimum, the lavatories flushed and cleaned by hand. A cyclone destroyed the water windmill, and a recent letter received stated that they had no water in the hospital for a fortnight.
The London Committee is attempting to raise a fund of $60,000. The New York Cominittee, of which Dr. Frederick Peterson is chairman, is attempting to raise of this amount $10,000.

(Continued) ledged themselves to raise $5,000 for a pharmacy, which is absolutely needed, and hey have alreaily raised $1,700 of this amount.
Dr. H. Watson Smith, the well-known Scotch alienist, who succeeded Dr. Waldneyer as the resident head of the hospital, although a British subject, stuck to his post hroughout the war, gained the respect and confidence of the local authorities, and housed not only the insane patients but many wounded soldiers.
The prices during the war were so high that, while drafts and promissory notes were honred, they were for amounts that, when satisfied after the war, completely depleted the treasury of the hospital.
Mr. Henry W. Jessup, of 55 Liberty Street, New York, is the Treasurer of the New York Committee, and appeal is made to the friends of this unique work, which alone meets the needs of that part of the world. It is additionally valuable in connection with the work of the medical department of the SyrianProtestant College in that it affords a practical clinic enabling medical students to learn and appreciate the value of modern methods of dealing with the insane.

ZEL, with his article in this issue, makes his débuta a contributor to “big league” peri odicals. He is a practicing archi tect, a member of the American In stitute of Archi
tects, and is a first lieutenant in the Officers' Reserve Corps. He lives in Bedford Hills, New York. ON Hugh Walpole's recent trip to
America he discovered NEWTON A. FUESSLE, who contributes to this issue “A Challenge from the Easy Chair.” In a critical article in a recent issue of the “ Yale Review” the British novelist mentions Mr. Fuessle's novel “ The Flail ” as one of the hopeful things about American literature.
HAROLD TROWBRIDGE PULSIFER, who demolishes the argument for the easy chair, has several pet easy chairs of his own located at strategic points throughout New York. He finds that a carefully planned progression from one club easy chair to another is conducive to creative mental activity. It was on one such tour that he wrote the argument with which he attempts to abolish Mr. Fuessle's plea for the sedentary life. It's a lot easier to be a warning than an example!
