BLAKESLEE Associated Press Science Editor COLUMBUS, O., Sept. 7 — Ten thousand years in brain evolution and improvement is made in 90 minutes in white rats by giving them fevers of four to five degrees. The heat, in two-minute periods daily for 45 days, distinctly raised the intelligence of several rats in experiments conducted at Temple university by Hubert C. Hamilton and reported to the American Psychological association today. The rats were not only more intelligent on fever days, but. the effects on their brains lasted for 30 days more, the report said. The tests were made by having the animals solve a maze of blind alleys. The experiments support a belief of scientists that acquir- ing warm blood was one of the most valuable forward steps in evolution. In the beginning, as seen in the history of fossil bones, the earths creature' were cold blooded. They were mentally dull. How warm blood came Is not known, but its earned, posses sors rated as higher in intelligence. There was no record until today's report of attempts to find out what artificial warming of the blood would do to intelligence, it was asserted, Dr. Hamilton produced the brief fevers by use of short wave radio. Human beings have been treated with radio and other forms of artificial fever, but no one has looked to see whether their mental qualities improved. The fever treatment is so “rough" that it is confined to sick persons.

Sept. 7 fP\—This reporter gum-rhooed th ough the postoffice department today and discovered some developments in the ever-sticky problem of stamp-licking. They are: 1—A mechanical licker-vendor with which the Phi'adUphia postoffice is easing the traffic on Philadelphia tongues 2—The possibilities of the sweet potato as the base fir the stickum. Fussy folks have worried over stamp-licking for years clanning it was insanitary, archaic, or that it just plain took up too much of the country's time. All sorts of stamp-vending machines nave been inverted, but the department never has adopted them largely because of the phoney nickel problem The gadget up In Philadelphia, however, can detect a slug with the same finesse the department's mail carrle-s can spot a vicious dog in a resident’s front yard. Should the nickel be lacking—tne customer gets no stamp and the stamp gets no licking. The agriculture department—after a lot of experimenting-sa va the sweet potato will produce a fine stickum and Itll taste better than the cassava dextrin the government now is using. The postoffice department once had the licking problem solved in one of its offices. A new York sub-station cam'’ up with a cat that liked the taste of the stickum Customers simply poked the stamp at kitty—and kitt” did thp rest. But then the cat got tired and went back to its mice BOOSTERS FAIL TO FIND BAND-FOR WELCOME TO CORRIGAN Booster club members, arrant- Minority Man Hit with Whip By Policeman France Mobilizes Dockworkers at Marseille Port PRAHA, Sent, 7.—(AP) The Sudeten German part broke off negotiations with th Czechoslovak government o the disputed autonomy ques tion today after receiving re ports that three Sudeten depu ties had been assaulted b Czech police.
