Science Hbpes to "Conipr Death" Main Chance Lies in Attacking Problem of^Reversible" Death" r Today's Health Question I ,Q, — Is posture important for health? ,. Al—Although the importance of .standing erect in relationship to health has been greatly exaggerated, we know that there is a real connection between good posture »and good health. Bact posture f throws extra strain on the muscles jof the legs and back, permits sag^gin^ of the organs- in the abdomen, and hence results in fatigue and exhaustion. « ^tocry, _as I have previously told you, is , •*44'gratns a day, the amount of protein ~ttt a glass of milk represents about Artie-seventh of a person's daily need. ', I have already shown you that the v, jJr^Oteins are probably the most im- jjortant food substances, because they ^tmild* body ^tissue and take care' of si'ttfimagc and repair. The proteins of p^ntftijn are at the top biologically, which' TjirfiBans thai their usefulness in living tissues is greatest. .The proteins of eggs come next, then JjpQow the meats, kidneys ranking first, then liver, and then those of the muscle meats. After these come the plant proteins, such as the cereal 'grains, including wheat, corn, rice, peas, and beans. For your guidance, I have made up the 1 following' list of foods that are rich in proteins and those that are :poor in proteins: Rich Protein Foods 'Beans, dried Booster Cheese Meats Grab Nuts Eels Peanut butter Peas> dried Poultry Soy-bean:, products Wheat cereals 'I*ish roe Gluten products Lentils, dried ... , ,. „„.

This book, telling how three German children travel to Palestine and become established there, gives a full, rich picture of the "new Palestine" of today— the Palestine which has drawn Jewish settlers from all over the globe. It does full juice to the historic, religious, and picturesque aspects of the country, and tells in a way to hold a child's interest just what is being done there now, who Is doing it, and why it is happening. ft is, incidentally illustrated with excellent photographs. Published by Knopf, it sell? for ?2. A' fine book for boys is "Back to Treasure Island," by If. A. Calahan tyanguard: ?2). Mr. Calahan has done the impossible by writing a sequel to Stevenson's great classic and making a swell book of it. Long John Silver is in it again, along with Jim Hawkins, the mutineers marooned on Treasure Island, and other favorites and I have the word of a 9- year-old .'Treasure Island" fan that this book is as fascinating as the original- Then there's "A Child's Story of the Animal World," by Edward C. JJuey, which adapts a scholarly prt-s- eijtatlon of natural history to the juvenile mind. It is well illustrated by H. H. Diugherty an4 Olive Earle, and the above-mentioned 9-year-old has found }t highly absorbing. Reynal and Hitchcock arc selling it at $3.50. How about gifts arict givers? Every mother of young' children wants this question ah^werecl. j Is a child never to be told that some of his.most Wonderful presents come iom Grandpa Smith or Aunt Lucy Brown? And is that bright coverlet mother is surreptitiously knitting for Janie's bed—one she wishes her daughter to keep all her life, arid her children after her—is it to go down to. posterity as a donation from Santa Claus PerHaps this is carrying it too far, because when Jaiiie is seven or eight she will khow the truth. But wouldn't; the little girl thrill at the moment the: ; tissue is off, to know that her mother, had made it all for her? Of course. . There's Grandpa, for instance, who spent five dollars'and drove a hundred miles and caught cold to get the VtaTticular Jype of wagon "air the kids ! Had." I he to stand' there and watch Tommy scream with delight over the treasure Santa squeezed through the ' sieam pipe? Stand there with Tommy's eyes on. him, questioning eyes (for children know people give gifts td each other) arid as Grandpa feels, accusing eyes, because the best friend he has in the world has forgotten him? Santa Really Plays Minor Uole And Aunt Lucy,-who has no money and stiff hands—how 'will she feel when she comes in and Lois rushes over to her and shows her the beautiful coat'aiid'jhat "Santa. Claus" left for Annabllle.^er new doll? ";JDo you jtnow' I ^donVbelieve children care "a snap how MUCH Santa Claus brings as long as he fills the stockings with nonsense, puts up a tree and leaves a few small things lying about? I mean as far as he him- , self goes. Certainly they want pres- I ents and write him letters as long as the moral law, but usually they are primed beforehand. They know they won't get the whole consignment, that things have to be split up in this world anyway. There is no sense in being sold on the idea that nothing is appreciated by the child unless it has had a sleigh ride through the sky. So, mothers, make it fifty-fifty with an easy conscience, if you are worried. Youngsters see the hurry and hustle, the boxes and packages being whisked away, the whispering and shushing. And they like it. What for—all this—if nobody but Santa Claus ig to surprise them? They love to shiver and peep. They i love to guess and be shoved out. They ' love bright packages under the tree, to pull off strings and discover what friends and relatives have sent in. Children give presents. How proud is small Lois when she hands Aunt Lucy a bottle of perfume! Why should Aunt Lucy be branded as stingy when she is so hungry for her niece's love? Yes, Christmas is for children, but it is for grov/n-ups, too. And best of all, it is ofr both—to establish relationships of friendliness and love between them, 'gratitude and appreciation and all the rest. Two weeks after Christmas, I've noticed, children seldom speak of Santa Claus. He is a stranger. They don't , know him, and he's gone back to the | stars. But they'll remember who gave • them what when a real being of flesh and blood has presented it. All their lives they will remember. NEW YORK.— (ff>)-ln a scientific definition of death new in scope; Dr." Alexis Carrel, . Rockefeller Institute scientist, Thursday night predicted that it may becofne possible to suspend human life and to start it again, living for several centuries. Dr. Carrel'has" proVe'd'the physical immortality of a chicken heart, which ho has kept living by itself for 24 years at the institute. For him Col. Charles A. Lindbergh last summer perfected an artifical heart which keeps whole organs alive outside the body. Dr. Carrel's new definition was made in a talk to the New York Academy of Medicine on "The Mvsterv of Death." ' : He defined two kinds of death—reversible and irreversible. Out of the first came man's hopes for better health and longer life. A possibility "very remote" is suspension of life. It is reasonable, Dr..Carrel held, to suppose that part of the human personality may escape death. Present scientific facts neither prove nor dis- proco this after-life. All these points Dr. Carrel emphasized in a written summary of his report to the academy. "If science is allowed to go on eight or ten centuries, disease- may perhaps be suppressed," Dr. Carrel said. "But there is no hope of ever conquering senescence and death. "There are only three ways to die— by failure of the heart, or of the central nervous system, or by alterations in the composition of the blood. "Deaths are reversible or irreversible. An example of reversible death is a man stabbed through the heart. Circumlation and respiration stops. The man is legally dead. However he Knocks Oil!

Louis polished ofl Uzcudiin with but a single solid blow, n'right to the jaw that toppled in his tracks Paolino—the man whose boast it Was that lie had never been knocked out and'who said he never had been knocked down, although Tom Heeney disputes this. That right lo the jaW spread, over enough territory to split the left side of Pablino's face, rip'his upper Up, and lacerate the inside of his mouth, as well as addle his brains. Blood gushed from these wounds and from a cut over the left eye suffered in the third round, as the man from, the Pyrenees sank in his tracks, stretching full length on the canvas near his corner. Helpless and stunridd, Paolino'pull- ed himself to his feet with the aid of the ring ropes for which he reached instinctively. But he was powerless, defenseless, bewildered, out on his feet as Louis leaped in for the kill. While Referee Arthur Donovan hesitated to stamp a knockout defeat on an admirable career. Louis leaped in with two powerful rights to the jaw and started a left for the jaw'. This blow was stayed, however for Referee Donovan leaped in, waved Louis aside, clasped Faolino in his arms, and signaled the end of the fjght. amid the din from the greatest indoor crowd to attend boxing in the Garden in three years.

Press Correspondent HOLLYWOOD-The sort of picture to make a director go around mumbling in hlS beard, if any, is "Preview," n neW movie nbout Hollywood now under wny. Part of the action centers on n theatre preview such ns cnn be found nlmost any night somewhere in Hollywood, These previews largely have supplanted the old-time "premieres" us autograph hunting grounds nnd dress parades of the stars. These scenes, as such, would be simple to film. They hnve been shown in numerous pictures about fiini colony life. But Robert Florey, directing "Preview," has to' show thu making of'n picture and then, as pait of his picture, scenes from the picture that, the' fictional movie director has made. These scenes—a movla within a movie—arc to be seen at the fictional preview, whore the denouncement is staged. In the scenes of "Preview" where Florey is photographing his director and picture crew making a movie, nil the characters are actors rather than techniccil men. There are two cum- i | eras and two microphones on the set, one of ench being photographed, tho other. 1 ? doing the work. Except for the make-up on the actors, Florey might become terribly confused and try to get mi acting "sound man" to do something about the actual sound devices, with possible serious results. But the worst thing is that, because of the preview scenes, Florey and crew have to step in and "shoot" every scene that the "prop" camera is supposed to take—literally making two pictures at the same time, surrounded by twice as much equipment, twice as much wiring and lightirtg, two sets of actors. When he was seen, the other day, donning blue denim overalls brought by an attendant the first surmise was that he was taking steps to avoid confusing himself with somebody else. This was incorrect, however. He merely likes to sit down on the floor of the set, at various points of vantage, and likes to save his clothes the wear i and tear.

Skin which is exposed to cold air and snow all day long needs special nourishment just as much as one that gets scorched by blazing southern sunshine.

Anyway, the results will be quite as painful and just as harmful to your complexion. When you're ready to start out for a day's skiing, pat on as much tissue cream as your ikin will absorb, wipe off the surplus, smooth on foundation and makeup.

"Oh!" said Dana, enlightened for the first time that there could he a great and vital difference In fowl meat, "And through long habitation of the barnyard the old bird developed a very tough resistance to knives and forks," Scott added. "Oh, Scott, don't be funny at a time like this!" "Well, what else Is there In the house? 1 could dash out some where for a baked bam." "There's nothing else," Dana answered somberly. "You see. Scott, while I was worrying about the chicken, the sweet potatoes scorched. And then 1 was so upset, I forgot to put tbe aspic salad In the ice box until a little while ago. And look at U!" The aspic salad, a dejected looking uibES, tnei Scott's eye. "Maybe U will jell by dinner time." Scott looked Hopefully at arrived dinner. On a pretty platter, the oblong bread loat, in which golden brown chicken was concealed looked delicious and tempting, Especially with a fresh green garnish about it. The salad was a ravishing mis ture, topped gaily with pimento. No fault could be found with Dana's coffee arid the dessert. Scott opened a bottle ot champagne which one ot his friends had given him to use for some special celebration. "And what better to celebrate than pulling you out ot a hole?" Scott said. Everyone had eaten with apparent zest. Paula had said, "Dana you clever darling to think ot sue! a delicious and Informal dinner. 1 could tear my hair In sheer envy. 1 The champalgne had given the evening a real dash of brilliance Finally they bad all piled Into Paula's car and gone places. In the smaller hours Dana and Scott came home, tired but victorious. "A swell party, Mrs. Stanley." "Thank you so much, Dr. Stanley," Dana answered impudently, adding, "Every day I bow betore professional proficiency." "Forget it." Scott yawned. When he was asleep —or rather when Dana thought he was asleep—she was busy with wlde-away thoughts. Scott been simply an angel about the whole thing. But what must he have thought ot tbe way she bad mismanaged their first attempt at entertaining? Everyone had been sweet, and had seemed to bo having a good time. But you never could tell what people were really thinking. They probably pitied Scott for having a stupid wife, who couldn't manage even a small dinner party. Maybe Paula had pitied him. That thought pricked more than anything else. Paula bothered Dana In more ways than one. Paula was always calling out, "Scott, come here," and when be came, she'd link ber arms through bis, or lean close. ,And every time Dana looked at Paula the other girl bad been look- log at Scott with that veiled smile tn her eyes. There was tbe thought of all that ruined food wasted, too. And tbe extra money they bad spent. Suddenly Scott said "What are uVs"vvatcij.™"ve"goJs, Dauarihey'U y° u worrying about, you silly kid?" uc- Here in half an hour." Dana .-Mid nothing, but sheer tragurly was in the look she gave nlm, An arm encircled Dana, drawing her head down to Scott's shoulder. Dana whispered, "That awful waste of money I'' "I'll wring your neck it you don't top tliinklng about such Idiotic tilings and go to sleep. You've got 0 learn, and It was s^rell ot you ;o try' to manage without, help. ?he waste, as you call It, wasn't ny more expensive than having a maid come' In." "Oh, Scott," Dana whispered. "1 adore you so!" "I adore' you so, too. And that's that." came Scott's voice, vibrant n the darkness, T>UT though Scott wasn't losing any sleep worrying over ruined dinner parties there were days when he did worry. Days when he worried a great deal. Dana's words, "That awtul waste of money," had started a mental train that was harrassing, as the time went by, bringing Increasing social demands and a diminishing bank account. They put their heads together, Scott arid Dana, and worked out a budget carefully. So much for that. So much for this. With such a system they couldn't possibly lose, Scott explained logically. "And of course," Dana teased, "there won't be any doctor bills. That will bo a great help." "While we're on this subject," Scott continued, "Wo might take a look nt the clothes budget By borrowing skillfully from some ot these other Items, we might stretch this to provide a new evening dress for you." "But I don't need one," Dana demurred. "I won't need one tor months—not until spring. I have two dresses you haven't even seen, a black lace and a green net. All they need Is a trip to the cleaners." "Are you sure?" Scott was only half-convinced. "Sure." Dana confirmed. The dresses had been worn tor receptions those last two years at St. Cecilie's. But they were not much out ot date, and Dana wouldn't think ot buying a new dress when Scott needed a new suit so badly. "But you've got to make that budget buy you a suit," she told him, "or I'll never have any faith In your piathematlcal powers." "What's wrong with this gray suit," Scott began belligerently, "and that dark blue suit that's hanging In the closet?" Dana smiled at him gallantly, but she could have wept. What was wrong with them? The. same thing that was wrong with dresses that were worn over and long-past their time of wearing. They were shabby. For the first time the thought ot money pricked Dana Irritatingly. It would be nice to baye a little more. Not a great deal more, because luxuries weren't necessary to happiness, but enough to buy Scott a new suit when he needed one Enough to buy a now dress once IB a while so she wouldn't be aware ot Paula Long's oblique gaze at parties. And euougb so tbat Ronnie wouldn't bave an opportunity to say anything tbat could possibly , reflect on Scott. 1 (To Be Coiitiuucd) Teams iii Country 1935 Football Season Remarkable for Its Tremendous Upsets By PAUL MICKELSON Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO—(/P)—Over a trans-con- tinental trail littered with upsets that left millions of excited fans with pleasurable jitters, football rode through one of its most thrill-packed campaigns in 1935, with Minnesota, Princeton and Southern Methodist's Mustangs at the head of the collegiate parade. Hundreds of teams, fired by perhaps the largest crop ot sophomore stars in a decade, started out with high hopes of a perfect campaign, but when the football wars were over only eight had reached their goal. Of them all, only Minnesota's powerful horde was undefeated for the second straight year. Joining the "big three" within the ranks of the undefeated and untied were these universities and colleges of the Midwest, East and Southwest: Alma, Ohio University, Middle Tennessee Teachers, Spearfish (S. D.) Normal and Nassau Collegiate Center of Garden City, N. Y. None of them, however, disputed the national mythical title claims of Princeton, Minnesota and Southern Methodist. The Inttev drew the nomination for Rose Bowl duty against Stanford, whose record was blighted only by a one-point loss to University of California, Los Angeles. Attendance Shows Increase As' far back as last New Year's Day, No. 3—MIST AND FOG S o LOMJ as there Is light we may skip around at a lively rate over this old globe of outs. We may span oceans in surprising tlnte. We may cross"the cohtlheHt from sun»up to sundown'. But every now and then Mother Nature»decldes to put US in our plate, and otalVK6r,d;evl6H'to make us slow down, none is more effective tha'n mist nnd fog. lfo\v we.iftay not'havo to contend with fog and mist very fr v eq'Uently. but we're bound to now and then, and when wfe do, it can cause US a lot of annoyance and trouble, Vfhelrt a good'heavy fog comes^-<jn land, at sea .iv in the alf—-everything that moVes, moves with eautlotl.

Even trains on tracks^ reduce their speed—and we drivers on the highways, too,;must make our way cnutlftusly thfbugJjTthat tiaftling'scree ; n.'FoV'ono thing is trdc. In spite of all our progress, transportation stlfl depends'on pairs of eyes in humaii'heads. Scientists who have studied fog, say that II is corriposen' .ot titty drop's of water. These drops are so small and light (lint they hung in the air, and so close' together that light can hardly' get through them. Instead, these .little drops act like liny convex in'iH'brs. Wheri'we"try to pierce them with n beam of light, a'great'deal of'it is thrown right back ut'us, so the - e(Tec.t is just like a great, gloaming white curv tain in front of us. Experienced drivers say that the first thing to do is lo gel pur lights right. The main thing is to direct the beams downward. If we lu<ve them ; shining straight ahead, those little mist-drop mirrors reflect the rays back in our eyes. But if they're pointing downward, the rays are deflected toward (lie road, Then they say it's a goo'd idea, to guide by the road cdjje at our right, and if we have a spotlight on our car. to focus it right on that road close to the front of the car', so the edge will be clearly lightnd But we have to keep a good weather eye .ihead, too, because fog veils more than the road. It hides not only things on the road b'vit such things as roadside warnings of curves and hills and interjections. Even the traffic light's red and green signal rays have the same hard time that out headlights do getting through that strange haze. In fact, in a good heavy fog, the best we can do for our vision is Hone too good. And so the main thing is lo slow down. The ships have to do it, the trains have to dp it, and We have to do it too. If we won't make up our minds to that, they tell us the best thing we can do is to pull off the road, or if we have riot yet started out, we had better just stay home. But seeing in fog and mist is only half the story. We not only have to see, but we also have to be seen. Our headlights properly adjusted are strong enough,to do their duty in pointing us out to people coming from the opposite direction. And, in addition, some drivers use their horns like foghorns by giving them a toot every now and then. But another thing we have to think of is to be sure drivers behind us see usi That's why it's so important to have our stop- signal an'd tailrlight working when we're driving in fog. Arid so it's'a good thing lo make sure that thes.-.- lights a're working and to wipe off those.little red glasses it they happen to be covered With mud. H the weather's clear.and our tail-light has gone out, th<-> other fellow's lights 'may point us out fairly well. But if his headlights are fighting fog, they can't do much to protect.us.' So', when nil is said and done, driving in' fog U just a matter of haying'our headlights and tail-lights right and being a little more careful. If we do tha't; we' can drive our cars safely, even through Nature's stubborn obstacles of mist and fog. toppled Ohio State. .'
