even translates thoughts of love or sex or fear or hate to order other glands into action This iould explain how thoughts of love could stimulate production of sex hormones Or how seeing sudden danger spurs adrenal glands to give you extra adrenalin in order to fight or run This bigchief gland is the hypo ttalamus Scientists havent been pure just whatit does or how it works Its been called Ihe seat of the emotions and apparently is in volved in the strange mechanism of sleep An amazing role for Ihe hypo thalamus is found in insect experi ments by Dr Berla Scharrer Uni versity of Colorado School of Med icine She finds it has two vital con trols over the pituitary the gland at the base of the brain which up to now has been considered the boss gland One control she finds is that the hypothalamus actually produces some hormones and sends them to what in humans would be the back part of the pituitary gland These hormones regulate the salt and water and fluid balance of the body The brain gland sends these hor mones through a nerve to the pitu itary for storage and release when necessary Sending hormones along nerves is a brand new thing This same nerve coming from the brain gland also has a branch line running to what in humans would be the front part of the pitu itary gland That front part of the pituitary r makes the hormones which control the sex glands the adrenal glands the thyroid gland the Congress that the security in tercsts of the nation will best be served by the development within the United Slates of a free com petitive synthetic rubber industry and I

onset of World War II when the United States was denied access to its normal supplies of natural rubber a huge governmentowned synthetic rubber industry was cre ated at a cost of some 700 million dollars He added There remain in government ownership facilities which cost ap proximately 550 million dollars and which now supply nearly all of the nations requirements of synthetic rubber which in 1952 amounted to 806500 long tons out of a total consumption of 1260000 long tons of new rubber Move fo Take School Head Out of Politics DES MOINES Iowa Senate has voted to create a stale boarc of
