PICKED MEN TRAINED TO LEAD SEA POLICE
('C ontinued fro m page 39 ) dope sm uggler is also active. A rm ed w ith smoke screens, machine guns, super-pow ered boats, and even poison gas, these outlaw s are playing a fierce b u t losing game w ith the law. Against these smugglers, the little sailing cutters of th e old days have given w ay to a fleet o f several hundred sw ift picket boats, sturdy steel cutters w ith turbo-electric drive, sixteen pow erful destroyers. Seven b ra n d new, 165-foot Diesel-powered patrol b oats were recently added to this service in the vicinity of N ew York. An ever-tightening cordon is being draw n a ro u n d our 10,000 miles of coast. C apture of the rum -runner is only one of m any duties of the Coast G uard. M ore th a n 300 wrecks, derelicts, an d other dangers to navigation are destroyed each year by ram m ing, gunfire, or Explosives. Law s re­ lating to navigation, quarantine, a n d neu­ trality m ust be enforced. M edical aid is rendered to vessels engaged in deep-sea fish­ ing. R egattas and m arine parades are p a ­ trolled. P rotection is given to seal herds, game, and salm on' fisheries in Alaska. M edi­ cal a tten tio n , police protection, provisions, an d legal services are carried to isolated villagers of the fa r north. IN C E the fateful night in April, 1912, w hen the Titanic ram m ed an iceberg off the G rand B anks and sank w ith the loss of 1,500 lives, tw o cutters have been detailed each spring to p atro l the danger region, noting the size, position, an d drift of icebergs floating near the shipping lanes, and broadcasting the inform ation to passing vessels. F rom 1,500 to 2,000 ships, $ 10 ,000 ,000,000 in p roperty, and 1 ,000,000 lives pass through this zone each season. Due to its w atchfulness, not a single ship has been lost by collision w ith an iceberg since the p a tro l has been in operation. M ost im p o rtan t of all the duties of the Coast G uard, how ever, and the one pursued a t the expense of all the others w hen oc­ casion dem ands, is the rescue of lives an d ships. T o this end, every officer m ust be a hero as well as expert seam an. From De­ cem ber to M arch, the m ost hazardous m onths of the year, cutters of the service continuously plow through the danger areas, alert for the call of a disabled ship. M ore th an 250 active land stations, w ith launches an d surf boats ready to push into the waves, keep w atch from the shore. D uring the fiscal year ending in 1931, the officers, c u tle r crews, and surfm en assisted vessels and cargoes w orth $47,959,465, and saved 5,627 lives. During the last eighteen years, the value o f property saved is m ore th an $600,000,000 and m ore th an 50,000 persons were rescued.

Of Colonial design, faced w ith brick and lim estone, the buildings have been adapted to the configur­ ation of the land. I n the front row , facing aw ay from the river, are the classroom and adm inistration buildings an d the cadet b a r­ racks. Behind these, lower 011 the slope, are the m achinery building and the enlisted m en’s quarters. The combined arm ory and gym ­ nasium, an d the athletic field overlook the river and w harf.

Superchargers, driving a blast of air into the carb u reto r to m ake up for the reduced pressure in rarefied atm ospheres, help these gasoline m otors. T hey are heavy, however, adding to the weight of the plane, and they never com pletely prevent loss of pow er at high_altitudes. N ow consider the steam engine. It loses no pow er a t all w ith altitude and gains in effi­ ciency the higher it goes! T his is bccause the pressure on the exhaust is less in th in air th an a t sea level. T hus the perfection of the flying steam engine is a vital step tow ard conquering the stratosphere. Realizing these facts, inventors in various p arts of the w orld have been w orking tow ard the goal achieved by the Besler brothers. In A kron, Ohio, last fall, a local inventor, H arold C. Johnson, announced the com pletion of a steam engine w ith tw o opposed cylinders, weighing, com plete w ith boiler, only 146 pounds. Some m onths earlier, it became know n th a t the G reat Lakes A ircraft C om pany, a t Cleve­ land, Ohio, w as w orking upon an experim ental steam -driven biplane. Recent dispatches from France reported th a t a Paris mechanic had perfected a light steam power p lant for a ir­ planes. A nother news item , com ing from Sweden, told of steam -turbine engineers who are w orking on a new -type turbine for a ir­ c raft use, while a third, from Italy , carried the inform ation th a t G. A. Raffaelli, an aeronauti­ cal engineer, had announced a steam engine for stratosphere m achines. B u t it was the tw o California inventors, carrying on their secret researches, who first achieved the long-sought goal of steam -driven flight. E ver since H enri Giffard, in 1852, navigated the air in the w orld’s first dirigible, creeping along near the outskirts of Paris a t seven miles

an hour propelled by a clumsy three-horsi pow er steam engine weighing 462 pounds, tbci have been proponents of steam pow er for air* craft. M any of the pioneers of flight, before thl perfection of the gas engine, sought to fly b steam . In 1804, Sir H iram M axim, the Engliil inventor, spent $ 200,000 building a giganttf m ultiplane weighing 8,000 pounds an d havinj a wing area of alm ost 4,000 square feet. Driven by a 363 horsepow er steam engine and tW ( eighteen-foot propellers, th e giant c raft reachw thirty-six miles an hour on special tracks bull! to hold it dow n during the prelim inary testli Its lift a t this speed was so great th a t it tor*' loose from the tracks, crashed over on one sidfj and demolished itself. T w o years later, Samuel Pierpont Langley, secretary of Sm ithsonian Institu tio n , Wash! ington, I).

A U T O GLASS THAT'S CRASH-PROOF
(C ontinued from page 5 6 ) “ W h at’s the secret of the stu ff?” inquired K ennedy .as he exam ined the cracked sur­ face of the safe glass. “ I t ’s no secret,” replied Gus. “Safe glass is m ade of tw o polished pieces of plate glass cem ented to a center sheet of transparent plastic m aterial like celluloid. This center sheet is tough yet pliable and holds the outer and inner glass in place when it cracks. " H P H IS black edging,” Gus continued, “is a w aterproof cement th a t seals over the edge of the plastic filler. A fter the tw o sheets of plate glass and the center sheet are bonded together under pressure and heat, the sheet of safety glass is dipped in acid. T he acid eats aw ay the plastic filler and form s a shallow groove around the sheet. W hen cem ent is forced in this groove, the plastic center is sealed in airtight. M oisture and air can’t get at it.” Joe C lark, standing in the garage door­ w ay, listened intently as his p a rtn e r ex­ plained the process. “Do you know how they discovered the stuff?” he called when Gus had finished. “A bout th irty years ago some French scientist w as using a sort of liquid celluloid in his w ork. One day he forgot to cork the bottle. Of course, the liquid evaporated and left a th in layer of celluloid, or som ething like it, on the inside of the glass bottle. Ikput the bottle aside and forgot about it u n ­ til one day he accidentally knocked it from the shelf. I t crashed to the ground, but in­ stead of sm ashing to bits, it shattered, hold­ ing its shape. The hardened liquid held the cracked bits of glass in place. T h at gave him an idea and shortly after shatterproof glass was developed.” “ But doesn’t all glass of th a t kind get discolored afte r a tim e?” Kennedy inquired* “ N ope,” Gus told him. “T he seal I juij told you about stops discoloration to a grcnj extent and a new type of transparent filli sheet has been developed th a t’s not affecti by the sun’s rays. Good shatter-proof gliu(| will stay clear as long as i t ’s in tact.” “ I d o n ’t doubt th a t safe glass is a won* derftil thing,” Kennedy agreed, “ but it cosl a lot of dough.” Gus shook his head. “ B ut i t ’s .an invest m ent, a safety investm ent,” he pointed ou| “ Fifty percent of all the injuries in auto m obile accidents come from flying glasl T w enty or th irty bucks isn’t m uch to spent to make your car fifty percent safer to ridi in, is it ? One good sm ash-up, when yo| have a car full of people, will cost you lot more than th a t in d octor’s bills aloni " V /'O I T K E paying a doctor right now an< I accidents like yours can happen ailj time. Generally it w on’t be y our faul^ eil h e r .” "I guess y o u ’re right,” said K ennedy aflti a pause. “ Suppose you fix m y car up will it. W ith children in the family, safety m «iilj som ething.” “Just the w indshield?” Gus asked glandj ing at Kennedy. “ N ot on your life!” K ennedy replied. "I| I do it a t all, I ’ll do it right. Put in ~ :< H glass all round.” “ F ine!” said Gus as he w rote out tlif order. “ Safety isn’t som ething to buy \ parts. P ut it in front, back and sides ati driving a car will be less of a w orry to youl

low speed m ay be lifted clear off the fan pulley by centrifugal force at high speed. A belt can be pretty loose and still drive the fan when the m o to r’s idling.” ‘‘I* certainly beats all how you can root out trouble on a car,” Crowley said adm iringly to Gus when the trip to R ound L ake w as re­ sumed. “ H ow ’d you know the cooling system was clogged up. All you did w as p a t the rad ia­ to r here and there.” Gus chuckled. “Y ou’re right, th a t’s all I did but it told the story. And th a t's the sim plest w ay to find out w h a t’s the m atter w hen a car overheats. Y our radiator was cooler a t the bottom than at the top. T h a t showed m e the w ater w asn’t circulating. If it had been hot all over, I ’d have know n the w ater was circulat­ ing but not as fast as it should. *'¥ T N E V E R fails. If the ra d ia to r’s hot all ■I over, look for a loose fan belt, a clogged rad iator, too rich a m ixture, or punk ignition. If i t ’s cool a t the bottom , som ething’s com ­ pletely shutting off the w a ter.” “ Yeah, and fan belts cause m ost of the trouble,” Joe added. “ N ine-tenths of the cars th a t are brought to the M odel Garage need new fan belts, d o n ’t they, G us?” T he m echanic agreed w ith a nod. “ And the tough p a rt of it is, loose fan belts cause a lot of other troubles especially when the fan belt runs the generator as well as the fan. If it slips, the generator slows dow n. T h a t m eans the generator doesn’t charge the b a tte ry as fast as it should.” “ G osh!” exclaimed Crowley shifting into second gear for the long pull up R ound M ountain. “ I never thought of th at. A t th a t rate, you ought to check the fan belt every tim e you use the car.” “T h a t w ouldn’t be a bad idea,” Gus agreed. "B u t it’s sim pler th an th at. The fact th a t the fan belt drives the generator m akes it easy. All y o u ’ve got to do is check the am m eter reading now and then when all the lights are off. I f it reads lower than usual, the first thing to look for is a loose belt. T hen a bout once every m onth let a service m an look a t the belt just to m ake sure i t ’s O. K. “And another thing,” Gus w ent on. “Loose fan belts and clogged radiators a ren ’t the only things th a t'll m ake an engine overheat. A w eak ignition coil can cause a lot of trouble too. If the coil is breaking dow n, the engine misses fire and overheats. ” 1 OTS of tim es a high com pression m o to r -L^ will overheat because the engine gasket has blown internally. T he cooling w ater leaks into the m otor and the exhaust fumes escape through the rad iato r.” “M otors m ust be like people. As soon as they get sick they run a tem perature,” C row ­ ley grinned. “R ight, and th a t’s w hy it pays to go over your car now and then and get it in shape,” said Gus. “ A fter a hard w inter, a car needs some attention. Flush the radiator, clean the honeycom bs by squirting a hose a t them from the inside, change to sum m er oil, go over the ignition system, check the carburetor, and clean up the m otor generally. “In other w ords,” he concluded “ give your car a spring cleaning if you w a n t y o u r sum m er trip s to be free of trouble.”

CIVILIZED MEN 15,000 YEARS AGO

A pparently the fires had been extinguished long before the sloth abandoned the cave. These constitute his evidence. B ut w h a t of the sloth m an? H is features cannot yet be reconstructed for his rem ains have not been found. But his w eapons and his tools are revealed, particularly his a tla tl and d a rt. T he a tla tl is also know n as a throw ing stick. I t consists of a stick a bout tw enty inches long w ith a handle a t one end and a spur or shoulder a t the other. The spur engaged a little pit or cup drilled in the b u tt of the d a rt. In use the atlatl an d d a rt were held in the right hand, w ith the b u tt of the d a rt against the spur. T hen the d a rt, cast w ith a sweeping overhand m otion, flew through the air w ith great force. The object of the prim itive device was to lengthen the sloth m an’s arm by the length of the atlatl a n d consequently to give him greater force in casting the d a rt. ture, not unlike the hippopotam us. But lti_ was not the sole associate. W e now have cvl dence th a t the early American lived amon(f m am m oths, m astodons, ground sloths, bison, camel, horse, muskox, four-horned antelop^ giant vulture, short-faced bear, and direwolf.

/ t H otel Cleveland the pleasant comforts o f a fin e c lu b are combined w ith every s e r v ic e of th e m o st modern hotel. In the h e a r t o f th e c i t y , H otel Cleveland can t>e reached by covered p a s s a g e fr o m th e U n io n Passenger Terminal and from a m o d e r n 2 0 0 0 = car garage.

inchcs ap art. The sm aller figures, of course, are in fro n t, w ith those behind growing suc­ cessively larger. Colored bulbs are m ounted so th a t they cast their light over the fronts of the cut-outs. I f flashers are used in the sockets, and lam ps of different colors em ­ ployed, striking color com binations appear every few seconds. Stars are sta n d ard C hristm as decorations and are particularly effective when fastened a t the peaks of roofs, on outside walls, in tree tops, and elsewhere. You can purchase ready-m ade sta r ornam ents which take 10 w a tt lam ps, but you will find it a simple m atter to m ake y o u r own. C onstruct a rec­ tangular or circular box deep enough to hold a socket and lam p. Over the front of the box nail a piece of plywood or composition w ood th at has a star cut in the center and is covered w ith translucent tracing cloth, shellacked m uslin, or diffusing glass. P ro ­ vide a heavy screw eye for hanging the box on a hook. O ther stars consist merely of a plain w ood or fiber piece w ith sockets m ounted on the back, over holes through which bulb bases pass. The sta r can be painted silver or covered w ith tinfoil. The box structure can be modified so th a t it is itself in the form of a star. Stars should gen­ erally be m ore brilliant than surrounding lighting ornam ents. P P R O P R IA T E greetings such as “M erry C hristm as” or “ Yuletide Greetings” can be incorporated in electric signs placed across the fro n t of y o u r home or along the front porch roof. Perhaps the m ost satisfactory form of sign for hom e use consists of a long, narrow box just deep enough to hold a group of lam ps and sockets, and equipped w ith cut­ out letters in front. T he letters are covered w ith shellackcd muslin or diffusing glass. T he w reath is the type of lighted C hrist­ m as ornam ent m ost used indoors. Usually it is hung in a w indow or on a door. An a t­ tractive w reath can be m ade from a C hrist­ m as-tree string. F irst m ake a ring of stiff wire and tape the string to it so th at the eight lam ps are spaced evenly. Excess elec­ tric cord can be doubled up and taped in place. Cover the ring w ith laurel, evergreen or holly arranging the lam ps so th a t they project through, all on the same side. P ro ­ vide a colored cord for hanging the w reath to the w indow catch or a hook. As in outside lighting of y our hom e, you can use lam p strings to decorate interiors. You can suspend them over openings, across room s near the ceiling, and, of course, on the Christm as tree. Usually the tree is the center of the interior lighting scheme, although it can be supported by lighted vases, pictures, po tted plants, and table fountains. T o deco­ rate the center of the Christm as dinner table, you can use a m iniature ice m ountain on a large platter. T he lam ps can be of the usual Christm as-tree type, or several radio diallight or flashlight bulbs m ay be used, wired in parallel and lighted by a doorbell tran s­ form er or batteries. Pile ice cubes over the lam ps. I f you are careful, you will not need to provide guards for the bulbs. You m ay experience a little difficulty in connecting outdoor lighting equipm ent to yo u r house circuit. Usually th e problem can be solved by running one or m ore rubbercovered cables from an interior source of current. A simple w ay of getting the wire outdoors is to cut a board about 3 in. wide and long enough to extend across the bottom of a w indow when the sash is raised. Bore a hole or cut a notch in the board for the wire. L ow er the sash against the board and insert a stick above the sash to lock the w indow , if no other locking device is pro ­ vided fo r this purpose.

The following table is a guide for the proper selection of wire to be used in Christ­ mas lighting layouts and will enable you to avoid overheating and loss of voltage and consequent lam p brilliancy through use of too small w ire: W IR IN G TA B L E (R ubber-C overed W ire)

Before fitting and hanging the cupboard doors, stand the cabinet in its perm anent place as the fram e springs to suit the floor. M ortise a small lock into the back face of the right door and put an elbow catch under the upper shelf. T he draw ers can be m ade se­ cure by boring through the partitio n into the d raw er sides, for inserting lengths of dow el­ ing screwed to small knobs. In this w ay the draw ers cannot be opened until th e cupboard is unlocked. P aint the top of the table w ith some good alkali and acidproof m aterial. If a ready-m ixed paint is not easy to get, mix your own accord­ ing to a recipe found in any comprehensive form ula book. T w o coats of boiled linseed oil are sufficient for the rest of the cabinet.

LIVE ADVENTURES WITH DEAD ANIMALS
(C ontinued from page 1 1 2 ) t.irdvark, beloved of cross-w ord puzzlers. Of one, the whole body is show n; of the ■Iher, only the head and long proboscis peep Irom a burrow . The h u n t for these specimens brought only I Solenodon and a half. The q uaint anim al, urvival of a prim itive type, w as considered rvtinct, and a Russian museum had the single liecimen in the w orld w hen D r. G. L agai an d \ H y a tt Verrill got these. To do it took a lirush w ith Santo Dom inican revolutionists, much quinine, and m onths in the jungle u hence Verrill returned gaunt, bearded, w ith one entire specimen and p a rt of another. Also, lie reported th a t this freak of n ature roots like a hog, has claws, cats snakes, chickens, II nd bedbugs which it searches for in houses, mmcs out only at night, runs sideways, and when pursued, trips itself and tum bles head over heels. Then it sticks its head into a hole and is captured w ithout a fight. The female, shown whole in the museum, gave hirth soon after capture, to three naked young, an d three days later died. HOUSANDS of people take pets that have died to taxiderm ists for m ounting. These include dogs, cats, birds, and m onkeys. Hut there have been ocelots, garter-snakes, 1 1nd the pet horse of a movie actress. Almost nil ask th a t their form er companions be pre­ served in some favorite pose of life, head on one side, ear cocked, or a wag put into a pet poodle’s tail. Occasionally, they w ant Ihe anim al’s body em balm ed for burial. There is real fun in doing jobs for the movies, as m any taxiderm ists do. They Marted in the early days, when enthusiastic tUrectors som etim es had stuffed Bengal tigers Malking the M aine woods. Soon they began lonsulling taxiderm ists. One assignment they rave Sauter, was producing 200 rats that would follow a Pied Piper of Ham elin. He {tot the ra ts from rat catchers, m ounted them , and supplied each w ith an invisible wire to lie hooked up w ith other wires. The day lie delivered them a t a Long Island studio, lie turned some loose among the feminine extras—w ith satisfactory results. (Low m ovie taxiderm y has been perfected, li shown by the hippopotam i th at, in a cur­ rent picture, realistically raise their heads iihove the surface of a river, then lower them . The heads were m ounted and w aterproofed nt the Clark studio. An odd job is m aking plaster casts to Illustrate street railw ay accidents for lawsuits. The casts show the rail, cobblestones, and other surroundings so they can be explained In a ju ry . B y-products of taxiderm y are lent her articles, screens, lam pshades, elephantJtmt um brella stands, an d other useful things.

KRHAPS the highest flight of m odern taxiderm y, is creating anim als th at never lived. An English sea captain asked Sauter to in,ike him a m erm aid. A fter some cogitation. |u took the lower p a rt of a large codfish, and Hie upper p a rt of a lady m onkey, m ounted them, and sewed them together. Having p ro­ vided the m erm aid w ith an elegant tail, he crowned her head w ith long, w avy locks Iiiadc from a horse’s tail. To give her a hrautiful face and other finishing touches, In1 called in Carl Rungeus, well-know n anihml painter. Then he put the finished pro ­ duct in a glass case, garnished w ith seashells. I'hr captain was tickled to death. "W ait till I show this to m y landlubber Incnds!” he chuckled. Sauter was tickled to death, too. "Guess I ’ll make some more m erm aids,”

RAZOR-BLADE TOOLS AID IN DELICATE CARVING
F o r delicate p atterns on sm all ship m od­ els, for intricate inlays on small toilet articles and m ake-up boxes, and for small overlay initials and sim ilar hand carving, I use a set of tools made from old razor blades. A pair of wide, blunt-nosed pliers will serve for breaking the blade. Be careful to have the sides taper so th a t they are a trifle n a r­ row er at the blade edge th a n at the handle, as show n a t B. T his is done so th at w hen the wire is tightened around the handle, it will hold the blade securely. The handles are w hittled from cigar-box w ood. A fter they have been roughed out, 1

WATER GLASS HAS MANY USES IN THE SHOP
A l t h o u g h w ater glass (chemically, a solu­ tion of sodium silicate) is most commonly associated w ith the preservation of eggs, it is a cheap and useful m aterial for m any hom e w orkshop purposes. Used as a glue, it will fasten cardboard parts quickly and securely. I t gives a glasslike protection to bottle labels to which it is applied. P h o to ­ graphs m ay be m ounted quickly w ithout wrinkles and are actually reenforced by this m aterial. If it is applied in a thin film with a roller to the face of a dull photograph, it will im part a liijurh gloss and d ry in five seconds. R ubbed w ith a cloth into the su r­ face of unfinished wood, it brings out the grain and at the same tim e acts as a quickdrying filler to which shellac or varnish can be applied imm ediately. It holds flat wood surfaces together tenaciously. W hen mixed with plaster for casts, it gives the latter a close grain and sheen th a t im prove th eir ap­ pearance. A w ater glass and plaster m ixture is also handy for tem porarily recementing light bulbs th a t have come loose from their screw bases. A drop mixed w ith printing ink on the rollers of a card printing press will im prove the quality of the w ork in some instances and hasten the tim e required for drying.— G. S. G.

UNCLE SAM’S TREASURE HOUSE FOR GOLD
(C ontinued from page 5 2 ) Dredging for gold has been successful in both Alaska and California. It usually is used for mining wide gravel deposits. All the m a­ chinery is m ounted on a barge which floats in a pond m ade by filling w ith w ater the ex­ cavation it has m ade. A line of heavy buck­ ets m ounted on an endless conveyor dig up the gravel and deliver it to a hopper in which it is washed. T hen, under w ater pressure, the gravel is forced through revolving screens called tromm els, and fu rth er disintegrated. I t then is sent through sluice boxes, in which the gold is caught, and the tailings are slacked behind the dredge by a conveyor belt. In 1932, over three quarters of the placer-gold production o f both Alaska and California was mined by this m ethod. T T Y D R A U U C K IN G is another form of large-scale placer mining th at has been successful. W ater shot at high pressure from nozzles called “ giants” is used for breaking dow n and disintegrating the gravel and for washing it to the sluices. Under favorable conditions operating costs are' low, and pay dirt of very m oderate quality m ay be han­ dled profitably. T he sim plest form of power placer mining is the use of a drag scraper operated by a double-drum hoisting engine. The hoist is located a t the head of the sluice box, and by the use of blocks and m ovable tail sheaves the pay d irt m ay be excavated and carried to the sluice from over a considerable area w ithout changing the location of the hoist. Scrapers, operating from overhead cables, also arc used in this form of mining. D uring the last few years the com bination of widespread unem ploym ent and the everincreasing price of gold has started a depres­ sion gold rush th a t has taken m any th o u ­ sands of men and wom en into regions where placer mining once was profitable, w ith the idea of nA king a t least a living by mining gold with pick, shovel and gold pan in the old-fashioned way. Estim ates of the gold th a t has been mined by these am ateurs vary widely. I t is said th at 12,000 of them who w’orked an average of three m onths in northern California took about $500,000 w orth of gold from the old placers— an average of a little less than fifty cents a day. B ut, no m atter how low their daily earnings m ay have been, they have added som ething to the gold stock of the nation th at will be guarded in the new T reas­ ury vaults in W ashington. I t seems a long w ay from some lonely placer deposit in the wilderness to the T reas­ u ry ’s concrete-and-steel vaults in W ashington. But gold is where you find it—and it is gold th at is the foundation and safeguard of our m onetary system. T h a t’s w hy men sw eat and suffer to win it from nature, th a t’s why the G overnm ent takes such elaborate precau­ tions to guard its store.

USE COPPER TREATM ENT TO CURE SICK TREES
T r e e diseases are cured by copper accord­ ing to a report m ade at a m eeting of the Botanical Society of America by Prof. W . E. Burge, of the University of Illinois. In some cases of anem ia in anim als and men, copper has been found beneficial. In the case of trees, Prof. Burge found, it m ay be equally effective in overcoming a lack of chlorophyll, the green coloring m atter, in the leaves. Tests were made on orange trees w ith unhealthy leaves. Doses of copper sulphate were scat­ tered on the soil around the base of the trunk. Four m onths later, the trees had glossy green leaves. O ther trees not treated w ith copper retained yellow leaves.

HOW METEORS AND COMETS TRAVEL
(C ontinued fro m page 48 ) locom otive's headlight. T he rule is th a t the tail alw ays points aw ay from the sun. A simple experiment with a bar magnet and a small m agnetic compass serves a double purpose in this connection. It fixes the princi­ ple in m ind and actually illustrates how the rarified m atter in the com et’s tail is repelled by the sun’s light. One of the illustrations shows w hy this is true. The repulsion of the com et’s tail by the sun’s light probably is an electrical effect similar in principle to the repulsion of the north pole of the compass needle by the south pole of the bar magnet. It has been dem onstrated, in fact, th a t the sun itself is a m ag n et; the sun-spots occurring in its northern hemisphere having an opposite m ag­ netic polarity to those occurring in its south­ ern hemisphere. A nother outstanding point of interest about comets is tile m anner in which they are captured and held prisoners by ihe large outlying planets of our solar system , partic­ ularly by Jupiter. The comet is captured because the a ttrac ­ tion of the. massive p lanet slows up the com et’s speed and changes its orbit from an open parabolic curve to a closed elliptical one. T hat Ju p ite r is efticent as a com et-catcher is evidenced by the fact th a t it has eighteen giant planets each of which was once a wandering and homeless comet.

STRANGE THINGS PEOPLE COLLECT IN FOLLOWING THEIR HOBBIES
* (.Continued fro m page 43 ) ing beer and w hisky labels. Repeal has given a great fillip to collecting bottles, of whic a leading exem plar is Joseh C. Auchincolsi president of the N ational Better Business Bu reau. One man in E lizabeth C ity, N . C., wi have only whisky bottles th at have bee throw n overboard from ships. M any vahi bottles, especially flasks, th at have been Ion exposed to the sun and turned a beautiful vie let shade. A form er cow puncher, in ill healt from w-ar service, made a living searching Cal ifornia deserts and old deserted cam ps fo such bottles, selling them for $5 or $ 10 . LL sorts of glass a ttra c t collectors, am A some connoisseurs specialize on glass fror windows of churches, m onasteries, or othe old buildings. One bit, scarcely tw o inche square, brought nearly $ 100,000 and a dia m ond-shaped pane w ith three figures, $25, 000 . The m ost valuable glass w as m ade be fore 1550, but is very fragile. Wrorld Wa destruction rather glutted the m arket fo glass fragm ents, and incidentally, m ade pos sible another collection recently exhibited hom e-m ade portraits and tapestries of saint and other sacred figures, given, often b y peas ants, to churches throughout C entral Europi and recovered from their ruins. M inerals have enthused T hom as A. Smith of California, since he began collecting then four years ago a t the age of seventy-six. Al his life, Sm ith was a citrus grower. N ow hi has just finished m aking an am azing stom table. The top, 18 1 /> by 28 inches is inlai( with cut and polished stones, no tw o alike T he center is of South African tiger-eye bloodstone from D eath Valley, m ottled Ari­ zona jasper, Mexican m alachite, and Arabiar azurite. The rest of the top is made of 31J pieces from other sections of the w orld, don| crazy-quilt style. For years, M rs. Gustine Courson Weaver of Texas, has been traveling a bout the work w ith her husband. W herever she went, shl picked up interesting dolls, in costume. Friend* even strangers, sent her more. T o d ay M r* W eaver has -100 in the costumes of fifty coun­ tries. M aurice Blum enthal’s collection of 1 ,00| pairs of cuff buttons, is the pride of Brooki lyn, N . Y. B lum enthal also saves a*ll trays, watch chains, earrings— all of stonci not m etal. This is his relaxation from lar«w scale excavating, such as digging *subwayi Once, beneath the V anderbilt H otel, New York, he struck gold. Pictures of fairies arc collected by Dr T haddeus P. H y a tt, chief dentist of t ll( M etropolitan Life Insurance office in N f\| Y ork. He has 200 of them . Joseph R. K athrcne has erected at West M ilton, Ohio, a home for his collection—a library of a million items, new spaper clip­ pings, advertisem ents, pictures, arranged al­ phabetically, on all m anner of subjects. He has been collecting them for fifty years, and calculates th a t if pinned together into a penant, and flown from the m ooring m ast atop the Em pire State building, they w ould stream out for tw enty miles. N T E X A S is a m an who has m ade his col­ lection into a house. Ross R. W olfe gath­ I ered petrified wood and fossils from seven­ teen States and foreign countries. Of the runof-the-m ill specimens, he built a house, in whose m ain room he installed the prize speci­ mens. W ith left overs, he built a fence around the house. Ingenuity is the keynote of m any collec­ tors, who have ransacked their brains for som ething different. A recent St. L ouis show had an exhibit labeled “Articles Found in Boys’ Pockets on W ash D ay.” Consider the Los Angeles m an who saves wishbones. N ot just ordinary w’ishbones; they m ust come from fowl th at have been eaten by cele­ b rated men. Before T hanksgiving and C hrist­ mas, he sends out m any letters, and gets a surprising num ber of responses. W hen the late Representative Oliver W. M itchell, of M issouri, died, he willed to his heirs his col­ lection of letters of the alphabet, excepting only “ R ,” form ed by twigs and branches, collected in m any walking expeditions. On the same walks, a certain Englishm an named H anks w ould have collected spiderwebs, to be carefully preserved between tw o pieces of glass. A mechanic in Albany, N. Y., has m an­ aged to accum ulate one each of 166 different , kinds of cigarettes. Collectors of old and rare phonograph records have form ed a club at B ridgeport, Conn. W hat distinguished gentlem an do you su p ­ pose collects toy soldiers? N one other than H . G. Wells, advocate of universal peace. So do thousands of other grow n-ups, of whom 800 exhibited a t a recent Paris show. One Englishm an has 10,000 soldiers. Like all the connoisseurs, he buys them unpainted, and colors them himself, w ith great attention to accuracy. One man collects death w arrants for Salem witches, and A. W. T ow ne of Syracuse, N. Y., amasses data on Siamese twins. In the same city, Jam es Perkins treasures clippings and other inform ation about centenarians. O thers find fascination in gloating over ac­ cum ulated doorknobs, m etal-plated baby shoes, glass hats, comic valentines, rooster­ shaped dishes, old pipe stoppers, toothpicks, m ilk-bottle tops and baggage labels. A New Y ork broker, M ark H aas, has 28,000 m atch­ boxes and labels, for which he paid from two cents to $500. M any save cigar bands, and one such once asked Calvin Coolidge for an addition to his collection. T he President took a cigar from a full box, rem oved the band, handed it to the collector, and carefully re­ placed the cigar in the box— which he closed, firmly.

ANNEALING HACK-SAW BLADES AND FILES
H a c k - s a w blades, files, and other pieces of tool steel can be annealed dead soft by the hom e craftsm an in the following m a n n e r: O btain a piece of ^ - i n . or larger scrap pipe about IS in. long. T hread both ends and ob­ tain a pipe cap for each end. Insert the pieces, screw the caps on by hand, and throw the pipe into the furnace. Allow it to reach a red heat and rem ain so for about tw o h o u rs; then rem ove and bury it im m ediately in ashes or lime until cold. Steel annealed in this m anner does n o t scale or burn, and can be filed or cut w ith cold chisels easily. H ack-saw blades can be bent double and ham m ered flat w ithout breaking. T em per can be restored in the usual m anner.— H . R. S.

those readers who have ad­ vanced beyond our simplified ship models, we have six construction kits for larger and more elaborate m od­ els— the whaling ship W anderer, a Spanish galleon, the U. S. battleship Texas , the Elizabethan galleon Revenge, F arrag u t's fam ous steam -and-sail flag­ ship H artford, and an 1812 privateer, the Swallow. These are the finest of the m any m scale models C apt. E. Arm itage M c­ Cann has designed for this m agaH zine. Their value, when finished, is from tw enty-five to several hundred HP dollars each, according to the w ork­ manship. Each of them requires a ,v num ber of different kinds of hard-A to-get m aterials. If you go o u t shop-i ping for the individual items yourself, you will waste a t least half a day's tim e and will have to buy much largerquantities than you have any need for.

( Continued fro m page 15) come to earth w ithout crashing in event of engine failure, such craft never will be widely used. T he suggestions for attain in g this end have been m any. T hey range from having a col­ lapsible balloon, which can be filled from a tank of compressed hydrogen in an emergency, to folding w indow -blind wings th at the pilot can open by m eans of a lever. M ost inventors, a t present, are w orking along the line of variable-pitch propellers. These lifting screws could be shifted from a positive to a slightly negative angle during the descent. T hus the wind would turn them like the blades of a windmill and check the drop. In addition, ju st before reaching the ground, the pilot could shift the blades'back to their m ost effec­ tive lifting angle and their m om entum would produce an upw ard th ru st th a t w ould slow the m achine dow n before landing. V A R IA T IO N of this scheme is proposed by a young Am erican inventor. H e plans lo have a gyroscope in the machine to keep it level in the air. In a descent, the heavy wheel of the gyroscope «'ould be spun by the w hirling blades and w hen the variable-angle screws were shifted back to their lifting posi­ tion, the gyroscope w ould give them added m om entum . Of course, such proposals do n o t answer the problem of engine failure close to the ground. T hey are applicable only during a considerable descent to become effective. H ow ­ ever, im provem ent in the landing gear, so it will absorb greater shocks, m ay take care of this problem . T he experim ental w ork w ith the autogiro h a s accomplished m uch in this direc­ tion. T he m odern machine of this type can touch earth w ithout damage when it is dro p ­ ping tw elve feet a second. And, it is the shock of im pact and not the fall th a t does the dam age. In the early nineteen-tw enties, there was an o th er b u rst of activity in the helicopter w orld. In 1921, the M arquis de Pescara, an Argentine of Italian descent, rode a tw inpropeller craft into the air a t Barcelona. I t w as equipped w ith a small body like a racing car, the engine and radiator being in front and the tw o screws, revolving a t 200 revolutions a m inute, overhead. T w o years later, a t Issyles-M oulineaux, France, he set a w orld’s record w ith a flight of approxim ately half a mile. On J u ly 21 of th a t year, he achieved the first circle ever flow n w ith a helicopter. perfect calms, and its provision fi the pitch of the blades to provi descents in case of engine failure w; The progress m ade in vertical f! 1923 encouraged the British Air offer a $250,000 prize for a heli could pass four tests.

Oehmichen, in a machine w ith four liftin g air screws and a num ber o f auxiliary propellers, won a prize of 90,000 francs by fly­ ing over a circular course of nearly a mile. In America, the U. S. A rm y financed th e experim ents of D e Bothezat. H is giant a p ­ p aratu s, m easuring sixty-five feet from tip to tip, w as shaped like a huge M altese cross. I t had a six-bladed lifting screw, tw enty-six and a half feet across, a t each of the four outer points. T he fram ew ork, form ed by a maze of tubing and wire, brought the w eight of the craft up to 3,400 pounds. Y et, when it w as tested at M cCook Field, D ayton, Ohio, the ap p ara tu s not only lifted its own weight but 1,000 pounds besides. Its balance in the air w as so steady th a t in one flight it lifted three m en hanging from three of the four points of th e fram e. A hundred times, it ascended from the field and landed again w ithout accident. T h e craft, on one occasion, w as clocked a t th irty miles an hour in a flight across the field.

M ore as an am usem ent th an anything else, he had taken a course in photo-engraving and as he acquired skill becam e quite proficient at it. T his was all before bad luck walked in his fro n t door. N ow , faced w ith the necessity of m aking a living by some o th er trad e than th a t of a w atchm aker, he started thinking about his hobby. T here were n o t m any engraving plants in N o rth D ak o ta. N ew spapers w ere using a few cuts but n o t as m any as they would like, because of the length of tim e it took to m ake them . W hy not try to encourage (he papers to dress up their pages pictorially? thou g h t W eist. B ism arck, the capital, w here W eist was located, was th e biggest source of news in th e S tate, and ju st a t this tim e a fiery political co n tro ­ versy was raging. News! And pictures would m ake it th a t much more interesting. By hard scraping, W eist got together enough m oney to buy equipm ent and set it up in his ap artm ent. N ext he took out a card in the d istrict union. Then he sta rted looking for business. T he results w ere surprising. N o t only were the news­ papers interested b u t p rin ters and ad v er­ tisers, too. T hey found his w ork to be of high quality, thanks to the patience, care and precision th a t w atch repairing had taufiht him. H e still carries on the w atch repair w ork b u t today it is photo engraving th a t is giving him the bulk of his incom e.— B.K., B ism arck, N . D .

POISON MURDERS SOLVED BY T E ST -T U B E SLEUTHS
(C ontinued fro m page 1 3 ) are paralyzed in the voluntary and respiratory muscles. The heart continues to beat, but breathing through the skin is difficult. The same paralysis is noted in man and other w arm -blooded animals. C urare comcs from the Strycknos family of plants, as does strychnine (Strychnos nux vom ica). H ow ever, strychnine is a tetanusproducing drug, causing violent m uscular con­ vulsions. A strychnine victim ’s body is arched in a bow while trem ors ripple the muscles. Curare, on the other hand, produces quite the opposite effect, paralyzing the muscles. T R Y C H N IN E itself was used in the 1933 S “ poison-picnic” m urder in Arkansas. It was adm inistered in grape juice and, strange­ ly enough, the beverage was taken by the four victim s w ithout their noticing anything unu­ sual about it. Strychnine is extremely bitter, one p a rt in 70,000 parts of w ater being dis­ tinctly noticeable. A man, his wife, and tw o of their children were killed in this case by an attorney who feared the father was going to “squeal” on him in connection w ith a shady case. A third child lived and told of seeing the attorney “p u t som ething” in the grape juice. The “some­ thing” turned out, under qualitative tests, to be strychnine. Poisons fall into distinct chemical classifica­ tions. Acids and alkalies form the first group. Among the form er are such substances as sul­ phuric and hydrochloric acid. Among the lat­ ter are caustic potash and am m onia, w ith others. T he metallic poisons like lead, silver, m ercury, copper, arsenic and thallium salts are in a second group. T hallium sulphate was the poison fatal to five members of a New Y ork family in M ay of this year. In this case, chemical analysis revealed the poison in cocoa used by the family. The gaseous poisons form another group and include the familiar car­ bon monoxide, five tenths of one percent of which in stagnant air can prove fatal. This means th a t in a garage of 200 cubic feet, one cubic foot o f carbon m onoxide would be fa­ tal. O ther gaseous poisons include hydrocyanic or prussic acid, chlorine, and others. H ydrocyanic acid is sw ift in its action, one to tw o and one half grains being sufficient to cause death. I t evaporates quickly, and a mere whiff of the fumes can bring death w ith dram atic quickness— b u t n o t with the speed m ystery-story w riters claim. Like all other poisons, hydrocyanic acid has different ef­ fects upon different persons and a Philadel­ phia College investigator is on the alert for the complications th a t often arise as a result. M A N could swallow hydrocyanic acid and, in the few seconds before death en­ sued, toss the bottle out the window, walk U. a chair, and sit down. T he odor of bitter al­ m onds or peach blossoms, so stressed in mys­ tery stories, would indicate the acid as the cause of death, but only the trained investi­ gator w ould consider suicide when no bottle was found in the room. H e would m ake a search outside the room , a t least. Nicotine, conine (which is the poison hem ­ lock swallowed by Socrates), alcohol, ether, chloroform , form aldehyde, and allied com­ pounds fall into a fourth group of volatile organic poisons. A miscellaneous group would include nitrobenzene, phenol (carbolic acid), and the aniline dyes, among others. Substances seldom classed as poisons by the public, such as alcohol, chloroform , and am ­ m onia, are included in the toxicologist’s cate­ gory, for anything capable of being taken into a living organism and causing by its own ac­ tion im pairm ent of the organism's function is a poison. For this reason, the culture of septic-pneum onia bacteria used in the Indian case was classed as a poison. An interesting side light on th at particular m urder is the fact that the con­ spirators, who sought the victim's death so th at his estate m ight be inherited by them, tried first to kill him w ith tetanus bacilli which were rubbed on the bridge of his spectacles. OISONS in the several groups act in three ways. T hey are irritants, blood poisons, or nerve poisons. Pain, vom iting, and purging are produced by the irritants. In the blood poisons, the circulation is affected directly, the red corpuscles are destroyed, or the drug has a peculiar action on th e coloring m atter or decom position products ot the blood. The nerve poisons include the narcotics or stupefy­ ing drugs, those producing delirium, and those causing convulsions. T he scientific investigator knows the prob­ able effect of each poison through experiment and experience and can identify them a t the autopsy and later check in the laboratory. Tests on the lower animals help. Frogs are quite useful in determ ining the effects of poi­ sons. T he poison is injected into a frog’s lym ­ phatic gland and the heartbeats, respiration, and voluntary and involuntary movements are studied. T he exam ination of bloodstains plays an im portant p a rt in scientific crime detection. W hile distinct from the forensic analysis of poisons, tests to reveal w hether a blood spot is animal or hum an, or even to prove th a t it is blood at all, are often vital factors in the prosecutor’s case. M any factors enter into the study of blood­ stains— the m aterial on which they are found, their age, and the condition of the m aterial to which the blood adheres. Blood will form a com pound w ith iron oxide, for instance, if found on rusty iron. Greasy cloth makes a bloodstain look like any other discoloration, The composition of bricks or plaster m ust be considered. If there is a quan tity of fresh blood, as in a pool, it can be tested fo r grouping — th at is, com pared with the four types of hum an blood and its animal or hum an origin determined. O r it can be placed under the microscope and the red and w hite corpuscles, which differ in hum ans and animals, identified. If a stain is blood, there is a positive test th a t will reveal it as such. After the stain has been soaked off the cloth, w ood, or other ma­ terial holding it, chemicals are added to the solution and, if it is blood, the haemoglobin in it will crystallize into haem atin crystals. These are readily identified under the micro­ scope as chocolate brow n needles, usually four-sided. O E V E R A L chemicals, benzidenc, ortho-tolidine, guaiacum , and phenolphthalein, turn definite colors when hydrogen peroxide is added to them in the presence of a solution containing a trace of blood. All but the phe­ nolphthalein become a beautiful blue color, while this exception turns red. These tests arc so responsive th at they reveal blood when it is present in only one p art to 500,000 parts of solution. T he precipitin test makes use of serum from a rabbit which has been imm unized against the type of blood to be tested. T his is used to distinguish different kinds of blood. A rab­ bit immunized w ith chicken’s blood will pro­ duce a serum th at will react only when in con­ tact w ith chicken's blood. If imm unized with hum an blood, the serum is the proper reagent for only hum an blood. T he investigator tests m any kinds of prepared serums, in tubes con taining blood solution. T he right one liber­ ates the coloring m atter of the blood, while the others do not.

W h a t Secret Power D id the Ancients Possess?
Are the stories of the great miracles of the past legend or fact? Is it possible that once the forces of nature were at the com' mand of man? Whence came that power? Startling is the revelation that the strange wisdom they possessed has been preserved for centuries and today is available to all who seek a M a s te r y o p L i f e .

|)K A C O C K had found no band in O ttaw a’s ¥ schools. N ine bungling youngsters were the j|H<('lcus of the orchestra. Peacock called a feeding of public-school music lovers; assemiiliHl tw enty boys and girls who w anted to Btl n ; persuaded their parents to purchase in;jit unents; arranged his raw pupils into string, ■ ood-w ind, brass, and percussion sections, and T^rnt into action. His m ethod of teaching was ilm iacteristic of th at now followed in so m any bublic schools. He started from scratch and |fj>l on going. I ''E ach violin player,” he began, “ m ust hold pH violin in his left hand w ith the chin rest in liis left collar bone, as I do. He m ust hold lie violin bow in his right hand, four fingers l u tin g on top of the grip, the thum b nestling ffcrftcath it and in front of the frog—just like Pill*. Always keep y our bow at right angles to tlic finger board. You can do this by bending IjroUr wrist, keeping it always flexible— so. ■*'luis you are less liable to make squeaky pounds. W atch yourself in a m irror until your Btffect position becomes a habit.” The cello players were show n how to play a sitting position, the cello resting against 1 ! knees, the player’s head to the right of the Us. The string-bass players were taught to nnd behind their bull fiddles, the left leg nrvvard, bracing the instrum ent. The woodInd or reed-instrum ent players were given liulamental instructions. T he drum m ers were Instructed in handling sticks and calfskins. 1 Then Peacock started each section on some iliriple tunes and exercises. M em bers of each uvtion com peted for the “ first chair” or sec«on leadership. Each section became a jury, fjrtiding by raising hands which member was IIh* most able player. F inally^all the sections IWrrc brought together. T he O ttaw a High hi liool O rchestra became a reality.

Y 1934, Peacock w as conducting a sym ­ phony orchestra of m ore than a hundred liltfji-school students; his boys’ band of nearly w leventy pieces had been taken over and fi- V nuiiced by the city ; he had aided in establish- M lIlK a Civic Orchestra, as well as a good or­ ■ ■ chestra in each of O ttaw a’s Sunday schools; lie had graduated dozens of players into the 01 lawa U niversity O rchestra; and his high- I fwliool aggregation of sym phonic players was Competing for the high-school cham pionship of l,lli: United States.

NEW SUBSTANCES FOR ART A ND IN D U ST R Y

In every test, their reports showed, the synthetic-resin paints and varnishes stood up better than sim ilar coatings w ithout the plas­ tic base. Special types of plastic paints are m anu­ factured for houses, boats, and bridges. One quick-drying varnish is made w ith an oilsoluble synthetic-resin base. I t is rubbed on furniture like lemon oil and perm itted to harden. A nother kind of synthetic-resin varnish protects arm atures on electric generators from in ju ry by oil, gasoline, or lubricating grease. Installations so protected range from giant arm atures, twice as high as a m an, to m idget ones designed for small grinders. Strangest of all applications of these var­ nishes is one reported from an eastern m u­ seum. T he skeletons of dinosaurs and other prehistoric monsters are being coated w ith th e liquids. T hey have proved themselvefc best for protecting the rem ains of creatures representing life on earth hundreds of thou­ sands of years ago. A nother new use fo r synthetic resins in the field of science is in holding m etals for m icroanalysis. T he bits of m aterial to be examined are fixed in a block of hardened Bakelite. This gives them a solid support during the w ork of exam ination. E D IC IN E , as well as m etallurgy, is benefitting from applications of the new plastics. A device made of a therm oplastic substance is replacing the fam iliar gauze masks worn by nurses and surgeons in the operating room . Oxygen tents for hospital patients now have transparent plastic windows. X -ra y op­ erators are protected by lead-filled Bakelite. Shields to protect vaccinations, and an a d ­ hesive tape which has a plastic base th a t makes it unaffected by w ater, are other ap­ plications. Also on the list is a new pro­ tective helm et for miners, made possible by the use of light-weight plastics. H ow m uch punishm ent the latest plastic substance will stand is illustrated by break­ dow n tests m ade on a mechanical counter designed for use on high-speed factory ma­ chines. A t each revolution, a bronze pawl connected w ith a lam inated-plastic ratchet wheel. For seventy days and seventy nights, the a pparatus ran a t the rate of 516 impulses a m inute, a total of 49,000,000 im pacts on the wheel. A t the end of th at time, it was the bronze pawl, and not the wheel, th a t gave out. Engineers who examined the wheel reported it was good for another 50,000,000 im p a c ts! N ot infrequently, the m anufacturers of plastic substances have to develop special form ulas to m eet the needs of a particular product. F or example, w hen broadcasts from electrical recordings came into wide-spread use, one of the largest producers of the rec­ ords appealed for a new m aterial th a t would elim inate squeaks. T he engineers and chem­ ists of a plastics laboratory im m ediately set to w ork. They solved the problem , develop­ ing an entirely new m aterial. M ost of the thousands of new uses for plas­ tics have been found in th e last decade. T he greater num ber of synthetic substances now m aking industrial history have been born since the W orlrl W ar. T he field is new. But it is a field of spectacular accomplishments, of am azing possibilities. I t represents a crow n­ ing achievem ent of the industrial chemist.

Each beacon holds |wo bulbs, the second slipping autom atically lito place if the first burns out. At some of ilic m ost isolated beacons, caretakers live near Jlic towers and devote all their time to tend« g the one light. ■ O N E L IE S T of these m ountain lighthouses is one on a jutting rock 6,860 feet above ■ a level a t L ittle Lake Pass, Nev. ■^During w inter m onths, the only w ay to K t to and from the station is on snowBioes and the caretaker com m unicates w ith H e outside w orld by means of fight signals. Ijsin g a prearranged code, he flashes messages Bu the nearest other beacon, eighteen miles Siway, at Silver Zone, Nev. | On all the airw ays crossing the western M ountains, snow drifts add trem endously to Mic w ork of the airw ays field men. N ear R attlesnake Ridge, W ash., for instance, W il­ liam G raham and his helper had to burrow phrougb a th irty -fo o t drift to get into the fcower shed of an isolated beacon, f Then, when they started to leave, they (found the tunnel had caved in, jam m ing shut Hfie d oor o f the shed. By rem oving the sash [from the w indow , they were able to dig their [way to open air. From outside the building, jiowever, they could not replace the sash. [$o they had to dig out the first tunnel again, Etcplace the window from inside the shed, and leave by the door. I Because of the heavy snowfalls in the ^Rattlesnake Ridge region, the metal cabinets housing the switches and astronom ical clocks tire being placed th irty feet up on the tow ers -Instead of in their usual positions a t the base. ^Hiis saves hours of back-breaking digging during w inter m onths. £ Electrical storm s, w ith their lightning flashes, alw ays form a spectacular hazard for the airw ays men. Three or four years ago Charles Irish had a hair-raising experience with a thunderbolt a t the Amarillo station. T WAS early in July. A bout m idnight, the storm broke over the field. Irish was just reaching for the m icrophone to broadcast the weather when the whole room seemed filled with blue, running flames, r A friend, who was driving dow n the road flt the tim e, told him later he saw a ball of lire run along the 125-foot antenna wires and down the lead wire into the radio shed. T he bolt circled the room from one electrical ap­ paratus to another, leaving Irish in the center Unharmed. In complete darkness, w ith the air filled with acrid fumes, he groped for a flash light and found th at every piece of apparatus in the building was out of order. Driving four miles through the storm , he reached a tele­ phone and sent out an S.O.S. for a repair man With spare parts. p In the w ork of an airw ays keeper, there is little fanfare or ballyhoo. T he risks he meets Jtre p a rt of his job. The emergencies he over■Comes are taken for granted. But, quietly, efficiently, he is playing his p art in bringing greater safety to the sky.

MIDGET MOTORED MODELS RACE IN AIR AND WATER
(C ontinued from page 1 1 2 ) M orris designed and built a perfect little fourcylinder, four-cycle m otor which is only ten inches long and seven inches high. He spent more than a year in his back-yard workshop completing the engine. I t is made largely of alum inum alloy and has a bore and stroke of one and one sixteenth inches. In designing and testing these m idget racers, hobbyists are learning things which m ay prove of value when applied to larger craft. For in­ stance, one California builder has discovered th at a flat, horizontal fin, placed on the stru t back of the propeller, will end porpoising, or bucking, w ithout reducing speed. Similarly, in the field of airplanes, gas m od­ els are leading the w ay to new discoveries. In K ovel’s machine, the center of gravity is placed fifty percent back from the leading edge of the m ain wing, instead of th irty per­ cent as in custom ary on most full-size ships. In addition, the area of the tail surface is in­ creased to th irty percent th at of the m ain wing. The result, tests have shown, is a stallproof ship. Tim e and again, as the plane has lost speed in climbing too steeply, it has sim ­ ply floated dow nw ard in a gentle curve, in­ stead of stalling and diving violently in the m anner of the conventional airplane. NCE, a t Roosevelt Field, the model was only fifteen feet from the ground and O climbing steeply on the take-off when the en­ gine cut out as the result of a clogged fuel line. Instead of diving into the ground, it sim ­ ply leveled off and slid to a norm al landing. The innovation which has made Kovel's plane virtually foolproof could be applied to large machines as well. Both in the sport of racing m iniature M iss Americas and in flying planes powered w ith real gasoline engines, enthusiasts are experi­ m enting w ith a thousand and one innovations. As a result, their hobby is turning into some­ thing more than a sport packed w ith thrills and fun. It is developing into a proving ground for new ideas, ideas th at some day m ay be of far-reaching im portance.

Testing soil by growing tobacco plants in it, as a substitute for elaborate chemical analy­ sis, is a possibility suggested by recent U. S. D epartm ent of Agriculture experiments. Ab­ sence of any one of nine essential elements for the grow th of crops, the tests show, gives the broad, sensitive tobacco leaves a distinctive appearance. Shortage of nitrogen tinges the whole plant an abnorm ally light green color. A deficiency of phosphorus, on the other hand, gives it an extremely dark green hue. W hen calcium is missing, tips of young leaves form ­ ing the bud take on a characteristic hooked appearance. E qually telltale signs denote a lack of potassium, magnesium, boron, sulphur, manganese, and iron.

sport. Recently, the Elm ira Cham ber of Commerce, through the aid of Federal funds, has established four perm anent soaring sites on ridges near-by. Facing in different di­ rections, I hey enable pilots t o get into the air no m atter from w hat direction the wind m ay blow. Site N um ber One is know n as Henry H a r­ ris Hill. It has a cleared space 1,050 feet long and 200 feet wide and holds the headquarters buildings, the radio equipm ent and the m ete­ orological apparatus. Last year, airplanes landed and took off from this site during the meet. T he ridge faces the Chem ung River valley and is approxim ately 1,600 feet above sea level. Il provides soaring when the pre­ vailing northw est winds are blowing. H E second site faces the west, is 1,600 feet above sea level and has a take-off field 600 feet long and 200 feet wide. It is known on the topographic maps as M aby Ridge. N ear-by is ‘‘Q uarry F a rm ” where M ark Tw ain once lived and where he did much of his writing. Site N um ber T hree is live mites out from Elm ira on a 1,560-foot ridge facing across a valley tow ard the American Airlines airport where soaring ships have 100 acres on which to land. T he fourth site is eight miles out and faces the south. The ridge is 1,600 feet above sea level and has a launching field 750 feet long and 500 feet wide. W ith improved roads leading to the take­ off spots, this Chemung C ounty “soaring plan t’- is one of the finest in the world. An­ other noted spot is at Big M eadow s in the Shenandoah N ational Park, Ya. T he Soaring Society of America has held several meets there. Last Spring, Lewin B. Barringer, of Philadelphia, tried out a new site near Elfenville, N. Y. Taking off in the “Albatross II," he remained aloft seven hours, rose to 5,000 feet, and sailed dow n the ridges to w ithin ten miles of H arrisburg, Pa., before the updrafts gave out and he had lo land. He had covered approxim ately loO miles and was credited with beating Du Pont's record, made the year before in the same machine. On the west coast, Clyde A rtm an has been using a 1,000 -foot cliff for a starting spot. His soaring plane is placed on a sort of see­ saw which is tipped up until the craft is pointing dow n over the edge of the cliff and A rtm an shoots dow nw ard in a dangerous, spine-tingling take-off. Sometimes, he dives as much as 500 feet before he eases back the stick and soars away. Recently, the value of gliding in training air pilots received special recognition. At the U. S. Naval Air Station, at Pensacola, Fla., four officers who had had no training on powered ships, but had been given glider training instead, were able to keep up w ith a class th a t had had ten hours dual instruction and tw o hours solo work before coming to

in use at the base. One half the men are starting their training on gliders, the other half on powered planes. C om parative results are expected to answer such im portant ques­ tions as: Does glider training make better pilots? Does it save tim e in training pilots? Does it reduce the cost at an air school ? In Germ any, 40,000 glider pilots have been trained with less than half a dozen fatal acci­ dents. In the U nited States, gliding reached a peak in 1050 and then, largely because of the depression, lost ground. Now, flying w ithout m otors has come to the fore again, providing valuable training for air pilots, a sky laboratory for aeronautical engineers, and a thrilling sport for am ateurs.

“WONDERFUL A ID ” IF YOU W ANT TO LEARN
F o r the past twelve and a half years I have been connected with the Overhead Line D ep artm en t of the ---------- S treet R ailway and while I have not arrived at. the top which I hope to reach some day, I feel th a t I have benefited from a corre­ spondence school course and th at it is cer­ tainly responsible— in p art, at least— for w hat I have accom plished so far. From m y earliest recollection electric­ ity and mechanics had always fascinated me and as I grew up I intended to study them . B ut u n fo rtu n ately when I finished high school in 1922 I was u n able to go on through college because of financial rea­ sons. Instead, I w ent to work as a clerk in a grocery store. M y first week's salary, however, went for a down paym ent on a correspondence course and I was enrolled w ith t h e ---------School as a student in electrical engineer­ ing. D uring the next eleven m onths I worked as a clerk in several stores and studied at night, all the tim e trying to get a job in (he electrical line. T hanks to the efforts of a representative of the correspondence school, I finally obtained a job w ith the street railw ay as a laborer on a pole setting crew. A fter a few m onths I was put on the electric welding crew, or bonding crew as they were called. This crew tested and re­ paired all electrical connections to the track as well as miscellaneous jobs for the O verhead Line D epartm ent. In Jan u ary 1925 plans had been m ade to reconstruct the feeder system from a central station supply to supply from four sub-stationa w ith accom panying changes in feeder and transm ission lines. Some one was needed in th e office of the O ver­ head Line D ep artm en t to assist with esti­ m ates, blue prints, and construction rec­ ords. M y em ployer, him self a student of the sam e correspondence school, had taken an interest in me and offered me a chance at this job and with it went a substantial increase in salary. A few m onths later the local public u tility com pany started a program of ex­ pansion extending its services to several small tow ns w ithin the radius of tw enty to fifty miles. M y boss was p u t in charge of p a rt of this w ork and I was able to secure a p art tim e position assisting in laying out pole routes, estim ating the size

In a recent test w ith a stream line trailer, built along airplane lines, H aw ley Bowlus, the famous sailplane designer, actually increased his car’s mileage m ore than three miles to the gallon. H is 1,100-pound trailer elim inated the drag, or air suction, of the car by its stream ­ line form . He achieved the “ airplane effect” when he reached a speed of thirty-six miles an hour, when it felt to the driver as though the trailer had dropped off. I n fact, m any drivers told me they drive as fast w ith a trailer as w ithout. On more than one occasion, trailers have followed in the wake of the tow ing car at speeds in excess of seventy miles an hour. OU will find your travel costs are just Y about w hat you make them . They depend, in part, on the distance you drive. Ralph N. Jordan and three relatives left Beloit, Kans., in August, traveled 7,100 miles through N e­ braska, W yoming, M ontana, Idaho, dow n the Pacific Coast, and back home through Texas tw o m onths later, in a trailer costing $325; they spent sixty-five dollars for gasoline and oil, $125 for food and tw enty-five dollars on incidentals—a daily average, exclusive of the purchase price, of ninety cents per person. Given a trailer, where can you park ? The answer is—anywhere. Alongside the highway, on a country lane, a t virtually any service sta­ tion, or in one of the thousands of special parks for trailer tourists. In W ashington, Oregon, and California alone, 1,000 trailer camps are now being pre­ pared, a recent survey by the Autom obile Club of Southern California shows. Camp operators are convinced “ trailerites” arc going to take to the road in droves. And they’re get­ ting ready to supply, a t costs ranging from tw enty-five to fifty cents a day, a level place to park car and trailer, w ith no backing out required; sanitary conveniences, shade trees, w ater, and service plug-ins so their visitors m ay have electric current. Soon you will be able to roll out of your garage, no m atter where you live, and find ac­ com m odation a t the end of each day ’s journey. Trailer owners already have become gre­ garious. An average of 500 trailers daily were parked in San Diego, Calif., during the recent exposition. Again in California, forty or more trailers frequently take to the highway for a tw o-day mass picnic. Members of the “TravelOme Club,” founded by R. T . Baumberger, who started building trailers as a hobby, take jaunts of 200 miles or more between Friday night and M onday morning. CROSS the continent a t Sarasota, Fla., is the largest trailer park in the world. L ast sum m er, 947 units were parked on its grounds during the annual trailer convention. Those attending last year’s convention regis­ tered from forty -tw o states, plus the D istrict of Columbia and four Canadian provinces. Sociologists look on the trem endous increase in trailers as indicating a fundam ental change in attitude tow ard the traditional obligations of home life. “ It m ay not be amiss," said O. T. Kreusser, director of Chicago’s M useum of Science and Industry, “ to predict th at if pres­ ent trends in buying cars or buying homes con­ tinue, an increasingly large part of the popu­ lation will live and carry on their home and business pursuits more around the autom obile and less around a house as a fixed abode.” Already, tens of thousands spend their w in­ ters in the South, m igrating like birds to the N o rth when spring comes, and living on wheels virtually the year ’round.

OIL-WELL SURGEONS PERFORM AMAZING FEATS
(C ontinued from page 2 3 ) scalpel-like, so il can be removed piece by piece. Now and then, a broken pipe becomes crowded far back into the form ation when drillers vainly try to remove it. Tapered taps are lowered to screw into the open end in hope of engaging the threads; or an “ overshot” is dropped to grip the stub w ith the teeth con­ cealed w ithin its cylindrical barrel. Perhaps the crew may angle for the ‘‘fish” w ith a harpoonlike spear; if other stratagem s fail, a wall hook—an instrum ent som ewhat resem­ bling a gigantic can opener—is lowered. As it is slowly rotated, crafty fingers insert them ­ selves behind the broken pipe, pulling it back into the hole where it can be removed by other grappling instrum ents. 'Q R recovering small things such as pipe joints or collars th at have slipped into the F hole, the surgeons have a variety of queerlooking instrum ents. Chisel-like tools chop obstructing steel objects into small pieces, which m ay be captured in metal baskets and raised to the surface. A group of oil-well surgeons once was b a f­ fled by a California well which persisted in strangling itself. Oil flowing upw ard brought sand which rose until it neared the surface where the casing widened and the pressure dropped off. Here the grains accum ulated, form ing a “floating bridge’’ or lump which soon obstructed all flow. Efforts to drill out this plug were futile, for the weight of the bit on the lump acted as a piston, building up a heavy gas pressure. W hen the bridge w as pene­ trated, this suddenly released pressure sent tools flying upw ard in a tangled skein of steel. The case seemed hopeless, but a young en­ gineer had an idea. He tinkered in his w ork­ shop until he had devised an instrum ent like a double-boiler kettle, w ith telescoping upper and low er com partm ents. After the device had been lowered, a sudden tug expanded the up­ per chamber, sucking the contents of the lower com partm ent upw ard. T o fill the vac­ uum thus created, loose m aterial beneath was draw n into the bottom of the kettle, where it was trapped by a valve. Like a “ plum ber's friend” working upon a clogged kitchen sink, the tool sucked up the accum ulated settlings in the plugged well until oil flowed again. Since then, the young inventor’s suction bailer has been used in m any holes clogged by sediment. Producing wells in the Oklahoma field have been found filled w ith sand for a third of their 6,500-foot depth. From such wells the bailer comm only brings up a variety of objects ranging from bits of steel and wire to sticks and chunks of rock. Often, when opened, it is found to contain w hat seems to be a basketful of eggs. These objects are frag­ m ents of extremely hard rock, worn sm ooth and egg-shaped by constant churning in the flow of fluid at the bottom of the hole. They act as virtual roller bearings upon which the drill spins w ithout m aking further progress. E xtracting such bodies from the throats of sick wells is just one of the deft bits of sur­ gery perform ed by the oil-well expert.

(C ontinued from page n ) Its base is a white, flaky com pound know n as diphenyl—a chemical relative of synthetic ge­ ranium perfum e— which turns to vapor at about 500 degrees F. Since it holds more heat than steam , and can be raised to a greater tem perature w ithout developing dangerous pressure, the new heat-carrying m aterial has already found industrial applications. O M E refrigeration, too, has comc in for attention from the chemical engineer. Ice boxes employing “ dry ice,” or solidified carbon dioxide, as a refrigerant have recently been introduced, particularly for use in hot regions o f the country where ice factories are remote and where electricity is not available. The dry ice is placed in an insulated inner com partm ent so that it will not w ithdraw heat too rapidly, as its tem perature of 109 degrees F. below zero would otherwise freeze solid the whole contents of the refrigerator. Its chilling effect, transm itted through metal fins on the com partm ent, can be regulated to keep the ice-box tem perature w ithin the de­ sired limits. A novel advantage resulting from evaporation o f the refrigerant is the atm os­ phere of carbon dioxide form ed w ithin the ice box, which is said to retard bacterial grow th and also to check the spread of food odors. Frying pans of glass w ith superior heat-rcsisting qualities, for cooking on top of the stove, are the result of a recent chemical im ­ provem ent upon the glass used in standard oven w are. Behind this developm ent lies the story of chemists who turned cooks in a Corning, N. Y., laboratory to test glassware made from as m any as 1,500 prom ising new formulas. T ons of potatoes and countless ham ­ burger steaks sizzled in their dishes. H ungry dogs, more pleased than the scientists them ­ selves w ith some of the first results, got m any of the meals. Some of the food was burned black— purposely— to sec w hat the glassware would stand. E ventually the experimenters a r­ rived at the form ula they were seeking, which is embodied in the glassware th at has just reached the m arket. Xo article used about the home is too in­ consequential to a ttrac t the interest of skilled chemists. One has just produced a “ nonskid” floor wax by im pregnating ordinary wax with rubber, preventing falls on a freshly polished floor. Another has im proved cedar chests by perfecting a transparent exterior coating which retains both the natural oil of the wood and its m oth-repelling arom a. Thus, even to the smallest details, chemists arc helping to make the w orld a better place to live in.

CLEANING UP THE BATTLEFIELDS
(C ontinued from page 1 3 ) Yet the task of reconstruction stim ulated invention and perfection of new and better m achinery and appliances, and the determ i­ nation to rebuild better than ever. The sturdy French peasants returned to the ruins, sought o ut their old hom es; began over again in cel­ lars— in shacks made of corrugated iron from dugouts, or in the dugouts themselves. W ith splendid energy, in two years they had filled in 134,000,000 cubic m eters of trenches and
the Sun moves north as men travel south, until finally it shines continuously in the north. For 1,500 years men jghed at the “gullibil­ ity" of the ancients, until, by sailing past the Equator, Europeans of the Middle Ages D ISC O V ER ED what the Egyptians KNEW thousands of years before.

the surface of th at “ red zone” of France and Belgium. Spring plowing is a dread ordeal for the farm er, who m ay be blown to pieces as his plow or his horse’s hoofs strike a hidden obus — French for shell. In w ar, it took 400 shells to kill a m an. In peace, almost every exploding “dud” kills at least one man, wom an, or child. So discouraged were m any peasants that they begged Paris to find new ways to end the menace. Now to clean up the battlefields, there has sprung into being an industry unique in the business w orld—the Entreprise de D&sobusagc; meaning “ C om pany for Un-shelling Shells.” The main office and “ plant” of this rem arkable concern are in a castle—the ancient and picturesque Chateau of Coucy, near St. Gobain Forest where the Germans hid the long-range guns th at shelled Paris. From there is directed the battle for peace waged by 5,000 men scattered through the “ red zone.” ACH of them covers a certain area, where every one knows him and his wT ork. He does some searching for duds on his own, but mostly, like a fireman, he aw aits the alarm. At St. Aubin and Heurtebise, where the company m aintains its two shell-exploding grounds, there arc notable battlefield museums but few tourists see them. T hey seem to stay away. Here great piles of shells, m any still bearing fuses, aw ait the m inistrations of I sturdy, form er French artillerym en in cor­ duroy. First they inspect the fuse, if necessary, with a microscope, to see w hether it can safely be handled a t all. If there is any doubt about it, back it goes into a specially-built truck. A w orkm an drives it out to a secluded field. T he whole surface is pockm arked with shell craters. To the metal shell fuse he attaches another of the type that miners use. I t is long enough so that he can light it and have time to get into an underground dugout before the explosion. Near th at blasted field is a wood in which the trees and underbrush are wilted, blighted. Here gas bombs are taken. W orkm en who handle them, put on gas masks and, wearing gloves, daringly let out the gas—but only when the wind is blowing strongly enough to take it aw ay from them . T he em pty bom b is sold for junk.

shell holes and reaped a sinister harvest of 182,000,000 meters of barbed wire, virtually reclaiming all of the 10 ,000,000 acres— on the surface. T hat surface had been littered w ith unex­ ploded shells, hand grenades, cartridges. To pick them up, was risky, but it was done. But, duds got into strange places. A wom an used one to prop open a stove door. Another lighted a fire to w arm a dugout, and touched off a dud under the floor. Beneath other floors were gas shells left behind by the retreating Germans, w ith time fuses set, to gas the Al­ lied troops subsequently occupying the dugouts. Those th at did not w ork remained, to be jarred into activity by the returning French peasants. So, in the “ red zone,” m any a m an, wom an, and child carried a gas mask. Often a road crossing, bridge, or railroad station w ould suddenly disappear in flame and smoke, as a forgotten mine blew up. Years after the Armistice, near D ouai, workm en were digging beneath a railroad station. Some­ thing caught a pick. T he laborer started to yank. But a form er soldier seized his arm. " / ^ A R E F U L !” he cautioned. “I t m ay be a m ine!” It was a mine— enough buried high explo­ sive to have blown the station sky high. Although, w ithin a few years, m ost of the “red zone” looked as if it had been cleaned up, danger still lurked beneath the surface. M ostly, dud shells. W hat causes duds? W hy d on't shells ex­ plode? Perhaps, because the bursting charge of powder has become dam p or deteriorated; perhaps, because the gun had a firing-pin too blunted to ignite the fuse; but probably, be­ cause there was som ething w rong in the fuse, the spark plug of the shell. H ow m any shells were fired in the W orld W ar? In the forty-seven days of the greatest of American battles, the M euse-Argonne, the cannon of our F irst Arm y fired 4,216.575 shells—and there were bom bs and bullets be­ sides. In 1918 there were, on the W estern Front, twelve m ajor battles and innumerable smaller engagements and bom bardm ents. P er­ haps Allies and G erm ans fired 200,000,000 shells on the W estern F ront th at one year. There were four years of w ar, and a dozen or more “ fronts,” great and small. So, millions upon millions of duds lie scat­ tered on the battle-fields, especially beneath

O ARE em pty shells, if they can safely be emptied. I f the expert’s trained eye de­ S termines th at he can remove the fuse without blowing himself to Kingdom Come, he puts the shell in a vise equipped w ith a hand-op­ erated wheel, and removes it— usually by un­ screwing it. W ithout its “spark plug,” the shell is harmless. T hrough the hole where the fuse was, other w orkm en pour out the powder of the charge. The French G overnm ent gets that, tests it, puts it into new shells. The shell cases and other m etal belong to the company, which has gathered from the battlefields anti sold the amazing total of a million pounds of copper and lead, and seven million tons of iron and steel. In th e last six years, the experts have destroyed 167,000 tons of dud>, but have brought in 1.500.000 tons and still have left, undestroyed, 350,000 tons. To gather that deadliest junk pile on earth, 5,000 men have risked death driving 350,000 miles. They are about the m ost careful truck drivers on earth. T w o years ago, one had an accident. Loaded w ith cylindrical death, his truck upset. A great sheet of flame, a frightful crash, a rending roar. The truck flew to flin­ ders; every window in four villages was broken; a crater forty feet deep was dug. At the bottom was the driver. As rescuers arrived, he arose, and dusted off his corduroys. In all these years, not one m an employed in cleaning up the battlefield has been killed I

SUPPRESSED KNOW LEDGE OF THE AGES
What strange powers did the ancients possess? Where was the source of knowledge that made it possible for them to perform miracles? Were these pro­ found secrets burned with ancient libraries, or are they buried beneath crumbling Temple walls? These wise men of the past knew the mysteries of life, and personal power. This wisdom is not lost—it is withheld from the mass. It is offered freely TO YOU if, with an open mind, you wish to step out of the rut of monotonous existence and MASTER YOUR LIFE. THI S F R E E BOOK Man’s intolerance has at times swept his achievements from the face of the earth, yet secret brotherhoods have preserved this sac* red wisdom of the ages. The Rosicrucians, one of these ancient brotherhoods, INVITE YOU to write and secure a free copy of “The Secret Heritage.” It will point out how you may receive age-old truths. You can learn to MAKE YOUR LIFE ANEW—the PJ fulfillment of your ideals awaits J you. Address: Scribe M .K .Q .

DEADLY MAGNETIC RAYS AID WAR ON CANCER
(C ontinued from page

particles travel in an ever-widening spiral, constrained by the m agnet to follow a rough­ ly circular path, while tw o charged electric plates take turns in boosting their speed with SO,000-volt kicks at each half revolution. By the time they reach the rim of the pill box, the atom ic bullets are m oving at the alm ost incredible speed of 12,000 or more miles a second! T hrough his ingenious scheme of prodding the speeding projectiles in his atomic whirligig with several hundred successive kicks of com paratively low voltage, Professor Lawrence obtains a beam th at could be dupli­ cated only by the application of millions of volts to a conventional vacuum tube. O E X PO SE objects to the ray, it was originally necessary to place them within the pill box. Recent im provem ents in the apparatus have made it possible for the first time to bring a 6 ,000 ,000 -volt beam of heavyhydrogen particles right out into the open air. Now scientists can see w ith their own eyes the marvel of a beam of radiation m ore than five times as powerful as any that has ever been produced before— even in a vacuum tube, where collisions w ith air particles do not slow down the high-speed particles. And being able to w ork in the open w ith the ray has perm itted fascinating new tests of its powers. W hen the cyclotron’s greenish-blue beam is shot against a target of beryllium metal, powerful “secondary” or recoil radiations stream forth—much as X rays are produced when a cathode-ray beam of speeding elec­ trons is trained upon a metal target in an X -ray tube. The rays from the cyclotron beam's im pact, however, are far more pene­ trating than X rays. They are believed to be stream s of atom ic particles of a recently discovered sort know n as “ neutrons,” pro­ duced by the m utual shattering of the particles composing the cyclotron beam and of the atom s of the m etal target. No known shield will stop them completely. T hey pass through the thickest walls of metal as sun­ light pours through a window. T anks of w ater, which slow the rays down, have proved the best barrier. So deadly a menace are the neutron rays, the by-products of the m agnetic-ray gun’s lum inous beam, th a t the University of Cali­ fornia experimenters have issued a warning to research workers in other laboratories where cyclotrons are now being built. Lack of protective screening to shield laboratory workers from the ray's, it is pointed out, m ight easily cause a series of tragedies such as followed the discovery of X rays, in the late 1890’s, before the danger of injurious or fatal “ burns” was realized. ESTS w ith 200 mice have shown the rays to be nearly three times as destruc­ tive as X rays to healthy tissue. The same tests, however, indicated th at the rays were four times as destructive as X rays to u n ­ healthy tissue, as represented by a certain type of cancerlike tum or in mice. In this significant difference lies the hope of apply­ ing the rays to the treatm ent of hum an cancer. Two powerful weapons now used against cancer— radium , and its modern rival, highvoltage X rays—both provide deeply penetrat­ ing rays th a t attack hum an tissue selectively, destroying m alignant tum ors and leaving norm al tissue unharm ed. Often, however, it is impossible to give a large-enough dose of rays to kill the m alignant grow th w ithout harm ing the patient. The best th at can be done at present w ith X rays is to cure or benefit about fifteen percent of the patients treated— barely one out of six! F ar more sufferers could be relieved if some kind of radiation relatively (C otitinued on page 10 8 )

was form ed in the dim and remote ages of Ihe past, for the process is still going on in the peat bogs of the present day. In m any parts of the U nited States and other countries, there are sw am ps where trees and smaller plants are going through the ancient process of death, decay, and compression. These peat hogs are a fertile field for scientific explora­ tion. W ith his microscope, D r. Thiessen ex­ plores a peat bed from top to bottom . A vertical colum n of peat, perhaps tw enty inches square, is cut from a bed and shipped to the laboratory in Pittsburgh. Before the actual microscopic exam ination of the vari­ ous peat layers, the m aterial is analyzed chemically to reveal the action of the forces causing its decom position. This involves a careful stu d y of the bacteria, fungi, burrow ­ ing insects, and other lower form s of life re­ sponsible for the gradual decay of the mass of plant m aterial. L T H O U G H there have been reports of A the finding of insect remains and of bac­ teria in coal beds, the discovery of a fossilized bug or bacterium is an event yet to be expe­ rienced in the P ittsburgh laboratory. Some investigators have claimed th at they have dis­ covered living bacteria in coal, but Dr. Thies­ sen has not succeeded in finding even a dead germ. In th e peat beds th a t will form the coal deposits of a future tim e, however, bac­ teria are present in huge quantities. F or purposes of scientific study, these bac­ teria are grown in the laboratory on sawdust, shavings, or cellulose. K ept in bottles and flasks, they are provided w ith nitrogen and other m ineral culture solutions necessary for their grow th. Peat bacteria have been kept alive in the laboratory for seven years, while their p a rt in the chem istry of decay was be­ ing studied and analyzed. It is believed that the action of these bac­ teria is to a large degree responsible for the decay of the w oody substances and the form a­ tion of hum ins, one of the principal materials to be found in peat. J u s t w hat happens to the bacteria is not clearly know n, but it has been suggested by some investigators th at these peal bacteria themselves become a part of the very deposit th at they have created. Coal is found only in the form of beds, which m ay vary from a few inches to m any feet in thickness and m ay range up to hun­ dreds of miles in area. Each bed was formed during a definite period of geological history and therefore contains characteristic types of plant remains which provide the laboratory key to the exact variety of coal to he found there. In some coal regions, such as West Virginia, there m ay be th irty or more distinct coal beds, separated from one another by Beams of shale, sandstone, limestone, or other rock.

E N E R A L naked-eye m ethods of classifi­ cation, and the m ore exact m ethod of the microscope, are today enabling producers to sort the products of their mines into the types best adapted for the various coal uses, such as domestic heating, commercial steam pro­ duction, or the m anufacture of illuminating Kas, tar, and other by-products. So the laboratory in Pittsburgh unravels and records the life history of coal, and Wakes the microscope as im portant a coal­ mining tool as the pick, shovel, or pneumatic drill. W hen next you are tem pted to regard your coal bin w ith disgust, remember that those dirty chunks of common coal not only Conceal hidden beauties, but also contain within them selves the indelible records of biological and geological history for millions of years.

NO FOOLING IN MODERN MOVIE THRILLERS
(Continued, from page 40 ) first week he em ployed actors, built a village, rented various props, bought set dressings and w ardrobe, and rew rote introductory se­ quences to his picture. He decided to open w ith an inland ice village, instead of a sealing tow n, since no seals could be found a t the time. Ten days later he left the m ainland, h e ad ­ ing across the ice tow ard the open sea. F orty miles from shore he found six creamy polar bears enjoying a feast. Quickly he set up one cam era on an iceberg, the other in a near-by boat for quick action in chasing the animals, while an Eskimo, obeying signs, darted in w ith a spear to harass the bears. Four hunters moved in on the bears behind blinds made of skins and m ounted on sleigh runners, ready w ith cocked rifles to beat off the beasts should they attack the director and technical crew. U T it is the unexpected, the tragic m ishap, which often provides a greater thrill th an B the scenes th a t reach the screen. Recently I carried a crew of 100 m en into the w hite-pine forests of northern Idaho to film sequences for a forthcom ing Samuel G oldwyn production. In those woods I left a trail m arked by one grave, a hospital ward filled w ith broken bodies, and a dozen choking pneum onia victim s. Back in H olly­ wood I was asked, simply, “ D id you get the p ictu re?” Im agine yourself “ on location.” W e are standing on a tall parallel, a platform built of w ood whose supports dig dow n through twelve feet of snow. Our cam era is trained on a beautiful, tall w hite pine whose top is bathed in m orning sunlight. L aboriously a lum berjack climbs, heading for a point 120 feet up where he is to plant dynam ite for a “topping” scene. Suddenly, when eighty feet up, he loses his grip, falls eight feel, and lies inert across a tree limb, dead of heart failure. Another lum berjack goes up, to lower the body on a rope. And the picture-m aking goes on. In a H ollyw ood projection room , four m onths later, you view some of the uncut scenes. You see giant pines, firs, and spruce toppling, logs being skidded into Jong flumes for the race to the Clearw ater River, logs jam m ing in the stream . T he film suddenly shows a log jam stretched across the Clear­ w ater at a point where it is 350 feet wide. Into the scene rushes a crew of th irty rivermen, bent on breaking the jam w ith their peavies. You hear their yells and the orders from their forem an.

GUS GIVES SOME TIPS ON TRAILERS
(C ontinued f rom page 1 3 2 ) “One of the advantages of living in a m otor trailer is you can follow the birds south in the fall, and you needn’t ever stay where it's cold enough to need heating. But if you do, an ordinary small oil stove will heat up this small space in no tim e at all. In fact, you’ll have to tu rn the burner ’w ay dow n to keep from getting too hot.” ‘‘Yes, th at would be the solution, all right,” Pendleton agreed. “ And I suppose if you were in a cam p where street current was on tap, you could use a small electric heater and avoid the kerosene smell. Heat insulation would help a lot on that. Is there any heat insulation in this o u tfit? 1 ’ " C 'U R E ,” Gus replied. “T here’s a double floor w ith a layer of cork board between the layers, and the walls and top have heat insulation between the outside and inside surfaces. B ut the purpose of the insulation is not so much to make it easy to heat in winter, as to help keep it cool in sum m er. M ost cam ps th a t cater to trailer tourists fix things so th a t you can park under a tree, but if you had to park out in the sun, the inside of this outfit would get as hot as an oven in no time at all w ithout the insulation.” ‘‘Guess it takes quite a little more gas to tow an outfit like this doesn’t it ?” Pendleton questioned. “ Bring up th a t subject w ith a m otor-trailer enthusiast, and you’ll have a real argu­ m ent on y o u r hands,” laughed Gus. “Of course, it stands to reason th at you can’t pull an extra couple of thousand pounds along w ithout using m ore power to do it, and more power means more gasoline burned. B ut the increase is not at all in proportion to the increase of your load. “Suppose, for instance,” Gus continued, “ th a t your car weighs, say, 3,000 pounds or thereabouts, and y our m otor trailer weighs in the neighborhood of 2,000 pounds. Adding the trailer would increase your total load to 5,000 pounds. If weight were the only thing th at counted, and you got fifteen miles to the gallon w ithout the trailer, you should get only nine miles w ith it. Actually, you’ll probably only do a mile or tw o less to the gallon w ith the trailer than w ithout it.” “H ow do you figure that o u t? ” Pendleton asked. " I T ’S all a m atter of friction and wind 1 resistance,” Gus pointed out. “ On level ground, it takes m ighty little power to over­ come the friction of a pair of roller bearings, even when they are loaded w ith 2,000 pounds, and the wind resistance a t m oderate speeds doesn’t am ount to much if the outfit is stream lined a bit. So the only tim e you really use m ore pow er is in getting the load started n d in pulling up hill. P art of this you get ba-.k, because the extra weight makes you coast better on gentle down grades. Of course, if you will burn up the road at high speed, the w'ind resistance is bound to make a difference.” “ W ant to sell this outfit ?” Pendleton asked suddenly. “N ot on y our life!” Gus grinned, “ but I can give you the names of some concerns th at make trailers of about the same type.” “ Who are th e y ? ” Pendleton asked, fishing out a notebook and pencil. “ M y landlord’s getting a bit uppity. Guess I ’ll walk out on him, buy a trailer, and the wife and I will head fo r Florida for a couple of months. I can afford it if I don’t have rent to pay hese.” "H e w on’t be the first landlord th a t has been handed a jolt like th at these d a y s!” Gus chuckled, as he pulled a bunch of trailer catalogs out of a drawer.
