Fan American Airways completed the second I' year of regularly scheduled commercial ocean flying in the '-' (i Pacific—and wrote into the record books one of the most remarkable records in the history of aviation. '- „ * Simply to add up the statistics on those two years is to - ntissthe point of the story. It is interesting:, of course, to note that thp third year of ocean flying began with the 163rd sched- UJed flight across the Pacific, and that the Clipper planes have transported more than 3,500,000 letters, upwards of half a million tons of freight and nearly 2000 passengers. Yet these figures don't tell the story. It is the less spec, tacular reports, which show a group of'skilled technicians > getting a tough job down pat, that are really significant. * * * of these, for a sample, is the story of how the Hawaii ' €Mpperbroke the speed record between Honolulu and Cali,„ fornia—and did it by adding 450 miles to the distance flown! They did it with weather maps, not with mirrors. Painstaking 1 weather surveys had shown that for this particultr voyage, a southern course far below the regular "great circle" would be advantageous. So when the ship left Honolulu it swung off in the general direction of Samoa instead of passing iframond Head and point for San Francisco. Passengers were confused, of course, and the actual distance" flown was 2860 miles, as compared with the regular j°'j 2^E10 miles. But the trip was made'in nine minutes less than th0 previous time record. A think like that tells how ocean flying has come of age ' out in the Pacific. It shows adventure being transfigured fVom a casual acceptance of risks to a scientific exploration of the possibilities of wresting safety and .speed from the hostile elements. -, • * * * A ND the whole performance, the two solid years of it, is a /i 4 tremendously encouraging sort of thing—even if aviation ak a whole leaves you cold. For here, after all, is one of the few solidly constructive movements going on in the world today,' _ At a time when mankind seems to be doing its best to split up into hostile camps, here is a movement that makes for unity and friendly communication. At a time when the terrible destBuctive powers: of the airplane are being demonstrated with grim frightfulness, aviation here is showing its constructive possibilities. Our hopes for the future, when you stop to think about it, rest largely on. the chance that the forces which tend to tie human society into one united, compact whole will prove stronger than the forces which are tending to disrupt and destroy it. What Pan American is doing in the Pacific is a fine, heartening illustration of the vitality which the former force can have, and the intelligence with which it can be directed. Boys' Reading Habits O NE of the soundest features of the Boy Scouts' program is the emphasis which it puts on good reading as a leisure time activity for boys. Dr. James E. West, chief scout executive of the Boy Scouts, is calling attention to this feature by designating the week of December 12-18 as Boys' Life Week. The Handbook for Boys which Dr. West has created is one of the most widely read books in modern history, more than 5,700,000 copies having been distributed since it was first •printed in 1910. Also familiar to all Scouts is the magazine, Boys' Life, which-Dr. West edits. Following these, there is a whole host of wholesome, stimulating books available to boys in the bookstores and libraries. "No entertainment is so inexpensive as reading; no pleasure so lasting," says Dr. West. "No one thing, in my judgment, is so much a factor for influencing the attitude of mind and habits of conduct.'' True enough; and parents generally should do all they can to help the Boy Scouts of America in its effort to establish the "reading habit" in growing boys. ft L<30K*J AS* SANTAS fHAVlM'WIH I'M SOlM' IB 6NB 'EM TO . • a By Bruca Catton '•Lnst Flight"—Story by Amelia Earliart. It is at once an extraordinary and tragic thing that Amelia Earhart wrote such a book as "Lnst Flight" (Harcourt, Brace, ?2.50'. Here is a dramatic story that was to have been called "World Flight." Then one day in last July, Miss Earhart headed over the vast arc of the Pacific and.,was seen no more Almost by presentiment, it would seem, she prepared each chapter ot her book, sending them back together with her dispatches, her diaries, the running log from the cockpit as each stage of the trip was completed. The whole is a most remarkable revelation of her character. "Some day," she would say, "I'll gel bumped off. There's so much to do, so much fun here, I don't want to go, but . . ." She had written to her husband, George Palmer Putnam: "Please know I am quite aware of the hazards. "I want to do it—because I want to do it. Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, then failure must be a challenge to others." "Last Flight" exudes that sort of gallant flair for hgih adventure to the last page. The earlier chapters recount Miss Karhart's first aviation trials, how she flew the Atlantic, the first woman to accomplish that feat; how next she hopped from Mexicd City to New York; how still later she flew the Pacific from Honolulu to Oakland. Finally, the story swings into her world flight. You will remember this book as one of those rare human documents such as come off the presses only once in a great while.—P. G. F. Compliment For Irish URBAN, 111.—Bob Zuppke, Illinois coach, says he likes the Notre Dame stadium more than any one in which he ever has played or visited. With the CountyAgent Clifford L. Smith Firing Farm Home .... Farmers located on a new electric line should wire their farms when they fee construction on the line beginning. When farmers see the actual construction they know that electric service will be available to them. Delay in wiring after this time will mean that they may not have the use of electricity as long as they otherwise might, and it also will mean additional expense to the power company in connecting them to the line later. Any increase in expense will be reflected in the amont that it paid for the current, advises Earl L. Arnold, extension engineer. University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. In order to connect the wiring in the buildings to the power line, it is necessary for the power company to install transformers on the power line and service wires to the building. At the time the line is built, workmen and equipment are available for this purpose at a very small cost to the power company.

Girl Wed by Proxy While on High Seas BERKELEY, Calif. - </P) - She embarked from New York as Florence Holdcn, an American citizen, and landed at Marseilles., France, as Mrs. Maurice Miller, a subject of Great Britain.

He could not get a lenve ot absence and she could enter Spain only as his wife—so the marriage took place via radio while she wns on shipboard. The Dairy Cow The dairy cow is in an enviable position on the farm this winter, for the price of dairy products are the highest since the winter of 1929-30. In order to take full advantage of this situation, cows should be protected from abuse through the feeding of unpalatable coarse roughage. This type of roughage is not only difficult for the cow to digest, but its production will necessarily be low, because more readily digestible feed is necessary to maintain high milk and butterfat. production, according to V. L. Gregg, Extension dairyman, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. In view of the high prices and the ample supplies of good quality roughage available on most farms, the dairy >'#•:.:>•!< '•''-^'-.f rr;> cow should be fed liberally this winter on the best quality hay on the farm. Mr. Gregg said.

Sense Changes, Faulty Co-ordination Principal Loco- motor Ataxia Symptoms This Is the third in a series in which Pr. Pishbein discusses cause, ] effect and treatment of diseases of the nervous system. (No. 3W) When syphilis gets into the spiny! System it produces serious changes Which make up altogether a collection pf disturbances called locomotor ataxia and known scientifically as tabes dor- salis. Usually five to 15 years after the person has first been infected und has been without adequate treatment for syphilis, these symptoms begin to appear. Occasionally they occur much sooner-. There are many instances in which people have been infected with syphilis and have not later developed this condition. Becatise the disease changes tissues in the spine, the reflexes (particularly the knee jerks; disappear and there are changes in the pupils of the eye. It is customary for doctors in examining people suspected of having this condition to test the reaction of the eye to light and to distance. In the typical case of locomotor ataxia, the eye will react to looking at a distance and then at a near object There may be secondary changes, including disturbances of the nerves which control the ears and the eyes and sometimes there are serious knife- liku pains in the stomach, the legs or the face. Associated with these attacks are abnormal changes in the senses of cold warmth, numbness. Sometimes there is i. feeling of tingling or of bugs running on the skin. Gtie of the most serious symptoms of loromotor ataxia is the inability to co-ordinate actions correctly. For example, the person may be unable to touch the tip of his nose with his finger. His leg-, get out of order so that he finds it hard at first to walk in the i dark. From a slight unsteadiness in the early stages, there is a gradua change in the gait of the person v/ith locomctor au.xia. In the late stage; the foot seems to be thrown up unc then brought down unsteadily as if it is being slapped on the floor. The sudden attack of pain in the internal organs is generally so severe that these cases used to be mistaken for conditions like appendicitis or inflammation of the intestines but by h Wassermann test and simin methods CAST OP CHARACTERS ROBERT BARRY — hero, explorer.

CHAPTER XXI 'T'HE celebration continued until A well past noon, and Bob was forced to do some tactful hinting in order to get more food for himself and 'Lissa. "Evidently white gods aren't supposed to eat much," Bob grumbled, good-naturedly. "I'd give a lot to sit down to one of Honey Bee's meals right now." "Me too!" 'Lissa agreed. "Say, I wonder what's happening back in camp, Bob? Don't you imagine Uncle Hades is likely to start after us?" "Your guess is as good as mine. It all depends on what the cook tells. Unfortunately, we ordered her not to tell anything, you know. got to get out of here as soon as possible." Bob need not have worried about their escape, for the brown people themselves had been planning. When the huge bonfire had died down and the merrymaking subsided, the chieftain approached Bob, with great deference. The two men talked, with signs and a few words which Bob had picked up, for more than an hour. A ring of villagers stood around to watch, at respectful distance. T think we understand each pupil, but it will not react to light and dark. Occasionally also the pupils will be irregular and will be very slow to! react. A other, at last," Bob eventually said to 'Lissa. "The chief here is begging a boon for his people. He petitions us never to reveal the location of their village to their enemies." 'Lissa stared questioningly at Bob. "Who arc their enemies? Now, I mean?" "Nobody. But they don't understand that. Their v/ord-of- mouth history tell.3 of raiding cutthroats, who drove their ancestors out of the cliff castle, you know. They lied here to hide. They've been hiding for a long time, and they don't know anything else." "Oh—that's right. And I don't much blame thwn, Bob.' "Nor I. They begged us not to destroy them ourselves, too. ] promised, provided we would have is present. i determine that syphilis | an escort buck up the cave trail.' * * * NEXT: Treatment In locomotor a taxi*. ISSA wasn't sure she wanted te see the tosi<Je of any cave again. But Bob told her there might be- no other way out of the jox canyon, ev(»i with dangerous climbing. The brown chief said so, and his people surely ought to enow. Rock walls can be defiant of man. "However, I'll bet Hades Jones and Holliman and I could figure a way to get out," Bob was staring speculatively at the cliffs. "Take some lengths of rope, spiked shoes, a short miner's pick, and—" "Bob, aren't you assuming too much, though? These people have no rope. Or shoes. Or metal tools of any kind," "That's right, sweetheart. But I was just supposing. Anyhow I want to go back through the cave. We'll have a guide back to my lost shoulder pack. And I marked our own way down to there, you remember," 'Lissa shuddered, in memory, But she nodded agreement. 'Will you come back here soon?" she asked, looking up at his eyes. He hesitated a long while before answering, "What do you think? Would you?" He kissed her full on the lips. "I'm going to be busy for a while, getting married, and making love, and—" She blushed at that, smiled at him. "Most gentlemen make love to girls first, then get married sir!" "Not me! I'm going to make love right along, true enough, but believe me Miss Lane you're going to marry your business partner as quickly as we can get a license and a preacher." "Fraid I'd run away?" she teased. "Maybe. Wouldn't blame you a lot. I'm taking no chances." . "But honey." She snuggled to him then. "You will want to sec this place again, and you know it. This would fascinate any archaeologist." " 'Lissa girl, this experience has been bigger than any archaeology, or any other science. Why this is —this is a Utopia! It's not real, yet it is. It's almost unbelievable.! The living dead. The existing past. I know it's a heaven for an archaeologist, in one way. But you've done something to rae here. Don't forget also that we're demigods in this village, supernatural. Just imagine it—the only v»iitc people they've ever seen or heard of. These folk still live back in the fourteenth century, in effect." "I know, Bob. I have thought about it all day. It would be cruel, inhuman, to disturb them." "I'll say! imagine the pers. And the newsreel cameramen. And the tourists, and hot dog stands and filling stations popping up on the new road out here —gosh!" * >i< * HPHE enormity of the affair irn- pressed them both. So called white civilization can be very heartless, for all its greatness. The Lost Kingdom would be overrun with white men in a week's time. In a year its people would be disintegrated, scattered, confused, saddened, their contentment and perhaps their very existence doomed. "Mary Melissa," Bob was very gentle and very serious, "let's never tell. Let's keep it our love secret — yours and mine. We found our own happiness here. Why destroy theirs? Let's—let's allow one aboriginal American race to stay unmolested by whites, and so work out its own destiny!" Against his chest she sobbed a little, reached up and patted his now stubble-covered check. "Robert, Barry," she murmurRd, "I would have loved you in any event, but right now I think you are the greatest mon who over lived!" Bob managed to obtain a bit of dried meat for their food, bu* they had to spend another night in the canyon village. They slept again in the chieftain's house. Many presents were brought to them. The cnief himself selected a guide for them next day, a young brown lad who appeared signally honored. Probably he had a reward coming to him, Bob suggested to 'Lissa, und this was it. He hadn't far to lead them, really. Bob wanted to explore the cave, but he resisted all temptation to take back :tny evidence of the cave or the hidden valley. When the guide found their pack, and Bob located his own chalk trail markers, he turned and addressed the brown boy. The lad never understood, but he was obviously impressed vvitli tRob's speech. Bob than opened the blades of his pocket knife, indicated its possible use, and gave it to the boy. Short of life itself, he couldn't have offered anybody a gift more wonderful. The boy's happiness was almost divine. When the lad had disappeared back down the subterranean trail and his torchlight was no longer visible, Bob held his own light and —taking 'Lissa's hand—led the way slowly upward, alone with her again. ('I'D Be Clifford L. Smith, county agent. Controlled temperatxire for chilling tlie carcass before putting it in cure, and for storing the trimmed pieces during the curing period are the essential services offered by the plnnt. Cutting the carcass and trimming the meat for cure, and furnishing and applying the cure are services which the farmer can do at home if temperatures were right for sate keeping. A curing plant makes it possible for the former to kill hogs when they arc finished, rather than to wait for cold weather, which results in n waste of food, M. W. Muldrow, extension animal husbandman, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, points out. The old standard dry sugar cure which is used where quality in cured pork is desired if possible in the controlled temperature of the plants, he adds. However, curing cannot change low quality meat into good meat. Hogs for killing should be well bred, well fed, and woll bled. Those weighing around 200 to 250 pounds make tho best family sized pieces carrying desirable proportions of fat and lean. Killing by sticking rather than shooting allows thorough bleeding. Tissues ot the went carrying excessive blood will sour. Bacteria arc present in the tissues of the hog at the time of slaughter am! they will develop and si>oil the meat if allowed to grow. Chilling the carcasses to a temperature around 37 degrees F. is necessary to prevent spoiling. Therefore, the carcasses must be delivered to the plant immediately after slaughtering, Mr. Muldrow cautions. I [am, .shoulders, bacon, loin strips or small whole sides may be cured.
