While more fortunate families may escape occasionally from the heat of the city, these families have little opportunity for weekend excursions. They must seek what coolness they can find in makeshifts. Many of their homes are poorly insulated. The Star-Salvation Army Penny Ice Fund has brought untold happiness to these homes in the last few weeks. It hss offered new hope and new cheer. Illness Prevented. Through provision of such a simple thing as a cake of ice it has prevented illnesses and helped to make ill persons better. - Now in the midst of its summer campaign, the fund needs all the help it can obtain. It needs hundreds of small, individual contributions. No donation need be large in itself, for the operation of the fund assures that each penny is spent wisely. This money Is used to purchase ice, at the lowest possible rates, and distribute It at 25 pounds for a penny to those families who have been shown to be needy and worthy. In some cases, where no one in the family is able to meet ice truoks at scheduled stops, the "shut in"- service is offered. Your Aid Will Help.

Cline rested yesterday in prepara tion for his return to Harvard University. Howard, a blond, sharp-witted and very observing young man, started to Europe last Sept. 2. He even had his trunks aboard the boat in New York harbor. War broke out and he was denied passage. So he changed his ticket for one to Mexico. Yesterday, more than 10 months later, he returned to his home at 42 West 56th street to greet his anxious parents, Mr. and Mrs. Francis Cline. Crosse Wild Territory. He experienced some of Ihe most unusual things anyone could imagine in his journey from the City of Mexico starting last Jan. 17 and ending May 5 through the jungles of Chiapas, one of Mexico's southernmost states. He traveled by train, foot, horseback, boat and airplane in crossing 3,000 miles of wild territory seeking a tribe of Indians who still practice polygamy, wear clothing made of bark, use bows and arrows and know little about Christianity. Howard was accompanied by an American youth, Gordon Gibler, son of a City of Mexico newspaper editor. The two made the entire journey as representatives of the DeDartment of Indian Affairs of the Mexican government and were given commissions by the attorney general. Between the two they were able to "poke their noses into most anything that came along." "Like Another World." To Howard, when he and his companion finally reached the tribal territory, it was "like going into another world," he said. After breaking down the superstitions and unfriendliness of the natives, the two young men won their confidence and were escorted to a sacred lake where Howard traded red bandanas and beads for a skull and other articles which he hopes will aid him in compiling data on the earlier dwellers. He and his companion arrived back in the City of Mexico via cork-like boats carrying "ma- World's PREMIERE Tonight WIRE:rfXr6P. M.

He brought his mother a photograph of himself, showing his reddish beard which he said was "sheared off in the City of Mexico by an amazed barber." Howard will return to Harvard this fall to compile in book form the results of his work in Mexico. He made the trip on a Sheldon travel scholarship. He was graduated from Harvard last year.
