At least i out of 3 a it of those Drivers owned or drove cars from one to three years old now just what makes these Drivers go through Stop signs. Is it because they drive a new car and figure they done to have to Stop or is it because they Are just dumb i am for a Law that applies to All Drivers whether ifs a 1009 Model car or a 1936 Model. I am glad we have a paper in which the citizen can voice his opinions. A. J., Kewaunee St when Shakespeare s Hamlet said that he perhaps uttered the Only explanation to the Many As yet unexplained occurrences which seem to turn this existence of ours from one of 2 plus 2 equals 4 to one of 2 plus 2 equals 3. From time to time one picks out of newspapers and magazines Odd stories which logical reasoning and deductions of science fail to explain. No explanation is offered for stories Given Here All clipped from newspapers or received by word of Mouth. Countless persons have been in places which they say seem familiar. Although they know they never have been in a particular spot an inner consciousness tells them they have. Story about Pola Negri. The erstwhile movie Star Pola Negri and a party of friends were j vacationing in Spain. They toured j Many famous old castles. During a visit at one of them miss Negri surprised the guide by adding Many facts to his talks concerning the Castle and its former occupants although she never had studied Spanish history. In one instance she told the guide of a secret staircase which it was supposed very few knew of. She even showed him How to get to it through a Wall contrivance of some sort. Pausing before a Large door she suddenly stopped. She was Able to Tell the guide whose room it had been and to furnish accurate details of the Way the room was furnished. She could offer no explanation other than it seemed to her that she had been there before. It was a fact that she Hadnutt. Publicity Story maybe. Tale of vanishing Road. About a year ago several Learned English scientists members of the Royal Academy returned from a visit to Tibet. They told strange tales at which their colleagues would have scoffed had they not known the integrity of the men. A guide was leading them through the mountainous terrain of Tibet. Their guide they explained was a Monk of the order of Buddha. They came to a Canyon some too feet across. They shouted to their guide to turn Back but to their Surprise he continued to walk to the Edge of the Cliff. He turned to them and said a a come follow ?� these logical men of science declared their minds seemed to whirl yet they followed Over a smooth Road which presented itself. Upon reaching the other Side of the Canyon they turned and looked Back j the Canyon was just As they first pictured it. No Road. Just Plain space. Walks on hot coals. You perhaps will remember Reading the Story of a hindu who in modern workaday England had walked on a bed of hot coals before the sceptical eyes of scientists and emerged unharmed. He had done this with his Bare feet and suffered not the slightest Burn or injury. Try to explain this if you will it was told to the writer by friends who throughout their lives have scoffed at spiritualism. In their own words a two friends of mine and myself were touring through Indiana and we heard of the spiritualist meetings that were being held near Indianapolis. Heres explanation of a april fool Quot dear editor Here is an explanation of interest to your Many readers. In ii j april f into t do you Ever w Onder Why w e paste a kick me signs on our friends feed them Candy filled with soap and do All other tricks on april i Well at the time the Calendar was changed to have the year begin on Jan. I rather than april i Many it eople objected to changing their celebrations to the Middle of Winter in the Northern hemisphere or the Middle of summer in the Southern hemisphere and they made All sorts of joking and mockery Over it. Each year they would Send to those who made the change All sorts of mock new year to greetings on april i and paid them foolish formal visits and generally made fun of them. And so they say. The custom began and is continued till this Day. Whether or not this explanation is the True one and while we get a lot of fun playing pokes on All tools Day we should be careful not to carry the jokes so far As to Hurt j there were eight others in the a anyone s feelings or to do some damage. I. E., Iuzie ave German goods has been urged at meetings in Bombay Lahore and Karachi. Invariably the meetings have ended with resolutions to Boycott and with shouts of a Down with Hitler a labor demonstrations. Labor organizations in Bombay demonstrated in front of the German consulate with the same cry and the German Consul protested a and in turn to local authorities. Later a statement was issued credited to the German foreign office which stated that Hitler to remarks were applicable Only to a Oan Dent ?� but this was inter-1 pretend by the Indian leaders they have indicated at their meetings j As Only adding insult to injury.

From the viewpoint of Leisure Overstreet to a guide to civilized loafing and Hambidge to a time by Ira Bennett Mcclure newspaper Syndicate the problem that faces the general staffs of Europe is How can we get the jump on the enemy in the first hour of War so rapid has been the development of aviation since the world War that the Fate of a nation May depend upon what happens within an hour of the beginning of hostilities. This fact is strikingly brought out in the information assembled in the division of aeronautics of the Library of Congress. In this division is concentrated All the information available concerning aeronautics throughout the world the pictures formed by proper focusing of the data Are striking exhibits of the breathless rapidity of scientific Progress in aviation. Europe ahead of u. S. The greater european Powers Are far ahead of the United states in military use of aviation Keener study More deadly weapons larger air forces quicker adoption of new ideas. Each nation conceals As Best it can the size Quality and location of military and naval air forces. The rivalry in espionage is razor edged. None of the governments can keep All its secrets. And everything that leaks out finds its Way to the american Clearing House of aeronautics. England. France Germany and Italy have provided their cities with bomb proof and Gas proof shelters. Germany Italy and France train their people to some extent in anticipation of air raids. No present problem of War engrossed More study than the question of air defense. No adequate defense has been evolved. Experts know that two warring Powers could inflict terrible punishment upon each other to science has taken its place As the right hand Man of the detective. The a Olie Detector shown in operation above has been of much use in crime detection. The device is based on the physiological changes known to take place in the human body under stress of emotion.

The department of Justice trains its men intensively in the Art of scientific crime detection. The agents study footprints and broken Glass inks and tire Marks papers and bullets. They work with Ultra Violet lamps and comparison microscopes. At fort Meade md., they undergo advanced instruction in the use of firearms and Gas guns. Every one of the 350 operatives in the services is a graduate lawyer with the exception of the men who work on Bank cases. They Are expert accountants. Rhodes scholars and graduates from almost every University in the country make up the Force. It is the Cream of the Law enforcement army of the nation. The country is divided into 25 sections with a Field officer and a group of special agents under him in each division. Each group in constant telegraphic touch with Washington covers its territory so that a minimum of time is wasted in travel. Trained to know the value of ing. By arranging the hieroglyphics of the message according to their frequency the detective can solve the message by consulting the table which lists the letters of the alphabet in the order of their frequency of use. Certain types of fast photographic plates sensitive to the chemical reaction of Ink residue on charred paper make the burning of documents to foil authorities useless. Ultra Violet rays help. Ultra Violet rays used to bring Forth hidden Marks or acid secret writing. This process makes useless the filing of numbers from engines of stolen autos. The rays will reveal blood on cloth in spite of the criminal to efforts to be rid of the stains. Experts who scorn character turn to Page 12, col.

Princess Maria Pia Small daughter of the Prince of Piedmont is taken for her daily drive in the Villa Borghese gardens in a simple Black coach drawn by two White horses and with two footmen in Royal livery on the Box. Taxes Are High. Before the hostilities began in Abyssinia the Fate of the roman cabby closely paralleled that of the Moscow Drosky Driver now being exterminated by the soviets As a a private ?� the number of Rome horse cabs had shrunk from 3,000 to about 500. And taxes and the ban against their activity in the Center of the City was rapidly cutting them further. Taxes As a matter of fact still Are High. It to estimated that it costs a Rome cabby 20 lira a Day to pay his assessments and feed and stable his horse a vast sum in a country where the pay of the average Workman is about 15 lira daily. But the Inrush of Trade to the horse cab is putting the old Jehu Back on his financial feet again after the lean years. Only natural that As More people Are living to be 60 years old and past More of the deaths should occur from those diseases that affect people of that age. A Oit is not Likely that heart disease and cancer Are actually in j creasing a continued the health commissioner. A Othey Are better diagnosed and people Are living to an older age. The increase in the number of deaths from these causes is approximately in the same proportion As the added number of people living to be 60 years of ?� better water helps. Purification of the drinking water Supply through chlorination and later through filtration has saved Many lives according to or. Thompson. His records show that in the five year period. 1910-1914, there were 52 deaths Here from typhoid fever. In 1913, hypochlorite was constantly added to the Public drinking Supply which reduced the deaths from that disease in the next five year period to 20. In 1922 liquid chlorine was added and As a result the deaths for the five years 1920-24, numbered Only seven. Filters improve record. In 1927 filtration Beds were added at the water Plant and since then there has been Only one death from typhoid fever in Racine. With the addition of the filter Beds now under construction the City will be assured of an abundance of palatable Safe water and there is Little likelihood of the capacity of the Plant being exceeded at any time within the next to years. In this connection or. Thompson asks a oif it is necessary to filter and chlorinated the water obtained i to Miles out in the Lake what do you think is the condition of the water along the Lake Shore a up the crime and saw six members of the gang on their Way to the Penitentiary three for life in less than 60 Days. Device sorts descriptions. The government service is organized to track Down every Rumor. If a report says a wanted Man is six feet tall and has a broken nose thousands of perforated cards Are fed into a Long Black mechanism which automatically kicks out every card standing for an underworld character so described. In 30 minutes the mechanical brain Narrows thousands of cards to a handful of suspects. Nearly 25,000 kinds of paper and watermarks Are on file in the Laboratory in Washington. Often watermarks in paper will prove a document is a forgery by revealing that the Watermark in the paper was not in existence when the letter or contract was supposed to have been written. Inks and specimens of typing from practically every known make of typewriter Are stored away for reference. When a typed note reached or.
