r 4 CINCINNATI ENQUIRER WMlrmdiy, Nov, it, INI Inventions Of 'Gentle Genius' Made Living Easy Charles F. Kettering, the engineering genius whose career was closed by death at Dayton, Ohio, yesterday, had robust faith in America to go with the fame and wealth that he accumulated in life. When the Soviet launched their first 'Sputniks he observed, "The fact that we didn't send up a satellite ii no fault of our scientists. Anything that needs to be done, we can do. It seems that in the last few months our great country has dropped almost completely out of light because some people did something we knew about all the "time, but didn't do." An optimist, Mr, Kettering addressed members of the "University of Cincinnati Alumni Association at their 18th annual UC Day dinner in 1951, and observed that as far as "the future was concerned, 95 per cent of the nation's coal was still underground, 90 per cent of its oil, 94 per cent "of its natural gas, great deposits of fuel-bearing sands and 'shales not yet touched "enough fuel to last 1500 years 'at present rates of consumption." It was UC, incidentally, that became the first Institution of higher learning to grant Mr. Kettering a, doctorate 'in aclence. That happened In 1928, and since Out time "similar degree were given him by 27 universitlea. "We should be much concerned about the future; we're going to have to spend the rest of our lives there!" he once said. Out of that probing of the future came many inventions designed by him to make life not only more secure but more comfortable. HI list of contributions to man's future is a lengthy one. Here are a few of them: Electric cash registers, farm lighting ayatems, an Ignition system for World War I military plane, a quick-drying automobile lacquer, ethyl gasoline, dlesel electric locomotives, air conditioning processes, a variety of metalurgical improvement, four-wheel automobile brakes, winter lubricating oils, two-way shock absorbers, chromium plating safety glass, fixed focus headlamps, double-glass windows, variable speed, transmissions, safe refrigerants, Arty one of those inventions would have been sufficient achievement for an average lifetime, but "Boss Kef was never satisfied. "There Isn't any mystery in the world," he often asserted, "everything is simple provided you have the proper understanding." The career that led him to these heights began modestly. Mr. Kettering was born on August 29, 1876, on a farm near Loudonville, in Ashland County, Ohio, the son of Jacob and Martha Kettering. His early education was in a county district school. Next, he attended Loudonville High School and then Wooster Normal School at Wooster, Ohio. Determined to continue his study at Ohio State University at Columbus, he was forced to earn the needed money by teaching. When he finally was graduated from the university in 1904, he was judged the best mathematician in his class. Meanwhile, however, his scholastic career had been interrupted when in his freshman year, while studying late at l 't fmiii ti .if, iMtiMiiniMriiinrni -i- in-.f TieaMu 1 1 1 mi Jnmf0 v -' M llehind W heel Of 1913 Car With Coworker William A. Chrj st His Glass Tube Carried Light Around Corners night and existing on 35 cents a day, he nearly lost his eyesight. Painful headaches accompanied any attempt to read, and in the spring of his freshman year he suffered a partial stroke and was forced to drop out of school. He obtained a Job on a telephone line gang with the Star Union Telephone Co., of Ashland, and after a summer of digging postholes in the nearby countryside, he returned as foreman of the gang. This active life recouped his health and by fall he was able to read again, but instead of returning to college, he began an intense study of telephonic theories. Soon the Star Union Telephone Co. gave him supervision of installing the first central battery exchange in Ashland. Mr. Kettering returned to Ohio State University in 1901 and practically paid for the remainder of his education by "trouble-shooting" for the telephone company. After being graduated from Ohio State, he went to work for the National Cash Register Co., of Dayton, Ohio, and his workshop in that firm's building became the scene of the first of the hundreds of Inventions that were to make his name internationally famous. Applying electricity to the hand-crank operated cash register he soon had developed a near perfect bookkeeping robot. The automobile self-starter was next. In 1911, Mr. Kettering and Col. Edwards A. Deeds, vice president of the National Cash Register Co, established the Dayton Engineering Laboratory Co. to manufacture the self-starter. The firm, which later was to become nationally known for Its "Delco" trade-mark, turned out 12,000 self-starters the first year. The invention was, of course, a potent force in putting women behind tha wheel of automobiles. From the laboratory came a steady stream of inventions which soon became commonplace appliances throughout the land, especially devices to ease the drudgery of farm life. During World War I, Mr. Kettering organized the Dayton Wright Airplane Co. and while devising an ignition system for the Liberty engine he became an enthusiastic airplane pilot. Before World War II. Mr. Kettering's laboratories were producing equipment which had equally important use in war or peace. But after Pearl Harbor the laboratories were placed on a full war-time basis, with 95 per cent of facilities in projects for the military. A friendly man who enjoyed philosophizing about the deeper and longer-range aspects of technology, Mr. Kettering's swift mind inspired his laboratory teams and awed his fellow executives In th automotive Industry, even though they themselves were giants In their own way. In a biography of Mr. Kettering written by one of his research associates, Mr. Kettering's astonishing mental reflexes were described in these words; "Not only can he write with either hand, but he can also write one thing with his right hand while simultane-ously writing something else with his left. He can write upside down or in mirror image and, in general, make each of his hands do Independently just what his brain directs." V". v - , f ,' " 1 v t , 1 Charles F.

"Pro-duction, employment and income continue strong," It reported. The department said rising demand is being reflected in an expansion of new orders booked by businessmen, it also noted the economic upturn in recent months has been accompanied by relative price stabil ity. xo illustrate the recovery pattern, the department's monthly survey of current business cited production rates for 16 different products. Plants producing all but three of these are operating at a higher per centage of capacity than last prlng. And the report noted that capacities have been raised In the meantime. Cooper refining, wood pulp production and cotton spindle activity have returned to the production levels of September jyo, the report said. The only production drop shown was tor sulphuric acid dotfn to 73 per cent of capacity from 76 per cent in April. Pro. duction of aluminum and men's suits remained at April levels The department said con sumer demand has drawn strong support from a continued large flow of personal income, which Jn October was at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $357.5 billion. That was down $300 million irom the record September rate, reflecting work stoppages in several durable goods indus tries. Most merchants except auto dealers reported their sales exceeded year-ago levels In September and October. The report said total output in the early part of the fourth quarter has shown some ad vance from the third quarter level. The department announced Jast week that output goods and services produced increased to an annual rate of $439 billion in the third quarter. Record August and September figures for the total value of new construction put in place were nearly equalled by the October record, the survey .said. "A marked feature of the recession was the strength in prices during a period of declining economic activity," the report said. It added that consumer prices since mid-year "have shown little change as food prices leveled off and subsequently declined."

Sieczkiewici (pronounced Sis-kav-age) uses his taxidermist's skill to stuff the flabby bird, preferably with an oyster and chestnut mix, so that It resumes its firm shape. And when father goes to cut it on Thanksgiving Day, he won't encounter resistance.

Did 'Diseased Brain, Lead On Burglar, 20? Why did a 20 -year -old Covington youth commit at least 85 burglaries in less than a year? Was it, as the youth, John F. Wessels, says, because "it was so easy that after I got started, I couldn't stop." Or was there another reason, namely, a diseased brain? That was the question Judge Charles E. Weber was asked to consider in Criminal Court yesterday. Wessels of 1717 Euclid Ave., Covington, pleaded six indictments politics for many years, was a 32nd Degree Mason and a mem ber of the Grotto and Shrine. .Upon retiring some 10 years ago, Mr. Haschart made hif home with a son, Lester Haschart, in Bradenton, Fla., where he was active in the Westminster Presbyterian Church. He returned to Cincinnati in June1 hacn cnarge could mean a life sentence unless mercy is recommended. Then the minimum sentence would be five to 30 years. Wessels' attorney, William F. Hopkins, asked Judge Weber to consider mercy and provide a special examination for his client at the Lima state Mental Hospital, witn possible treatment later. After Wessels' arrest September 14, a newspaper headline called him "the burglar of the year." It took police a while to worm out his "amazign" story: 85 burglaries in the Greater Cincinnati area since January 1. The loot: Approximately $50,000, mostly in jewels. He said he sold the loot in Newport, Ky., night clubs and spent his proceeds (only $2000, he estimated) in gambling. What did he mean when he said it was "so easy" to commit the burglaries? Wessels, whom his psychiatrist described as a "mild-mannered, personable, handsome young man," said he'd simply telephone a home or ring the doorbell. If no one answered, in he went! He was arrested after Mrs. Jane Buse, 1003 Rookwood Dr., Hyde Park, frightened him away from her home. Mrs. Buse is the mothnr-in-law of James R. Clark Jr., county commissioner. After receiving the case, Hopkins says he urged Wessels' family to ask Dr. William Roach, psychiatrist, to examine their son. Dr. Roach's "report was given to Judge Weber yesterday. "Superficially," said Dr. Roach, "this man has many of the characteristics of the psycho-deviate. He impresari one as being normal In all respects except that, as with the psychopaths, there is an absence of conscience and consideration for others or any true moral desire to conform to the mores. "Whereas, In my opinion, a psychopath does know the difference between right and wrong and could conform to the right if he really cared or wanted to, It can be considered In this case that the man is truly Incapable of conforming as a result of his organic brain disease." (Dr. Roach did not say whether he considered Wessels insane. Nor did he specifically define "organic brain disease." Some psychiatrists and neurologists nerve disease specialists believe that mental disturbances can be caused by organic changes in the brain cell structure.) Dr. Roach said he believed Wessels should be "segregated indefinitely" in a mental institution toward the time, if ever, when he would be restored to normal. Hopkins explained that time spent in a mental institution would count as prison time for Wessels if Judge Weber accepts the plea for mercy and grants a five to 30-year sentence instead of life. Hopkins said Wessels, of "better than average intelligence," was graduated from high school in Covington at the age of 17. He entered the Navy shortly thereafter. During his Navy career, "something went haywire" Hopkins told Judge Weber, and Wessels was discharged as undesirable. What actually happened was that Wessels and another youth broke into an automobile and stole whisky and cigarettes, Hopkins said. This was Weasel's first theft, Hopkins added. Judge Weber continued the case until Friday. Fresan. 60, 3131 Eden Ave., suffered possible heart attack. Mrs. Maxine Lucas, 50, 30 W.
