EIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 22 • 1936 LAST BUSINESS SESSION ENDED American Peace Guaranteed by All 21 Republics of New World. BUENOS AIRES, W)—The last business session finished, the inter-American peace conference moved toward its Wednesday finale with the major accomplishment the guarantee of American peace by all 21 republics of the American continents, instead of by the United States alone. Delegates were unanimous in their belief it is imperative all American nations pledge the pro- Hawaii to Preserve Lore as Purity of Race Ebbs Talking Disc to Record" Many Island Legends for Archives. HONOLULU, (UP)—With the pure-blooded Hawaiian race decreasing to an extent where it is estimated that there are not more than 45,000 left, an effort will be made to record on metal phonograph discus the legends of the race that are still recited by the older members who have not mixed with other races. The discs then will be preserved in the governmental archives. While these legends have been handed down from generation to generation nevertheless, the gradual intermixture of the population has become such, that now it is often difficult to obtain a true j version of the legends with which the islands abound. The' best sources of these at present are believed to lie with those small communities where the Hawaiian 11 m A T> • i strain has remained unmixed and Wi A irOiectS i the legends have been kept up ns > j a matter of racial and family cul- DES MOINES. i.^—State WPA I tuTr , e and . li ^ e : Million Alimony tection of their sister republics against any war of aggression from within or wiihout the American continents. 1,584 Are Taken Off headquarters Tuesday announced ihe elimination of 1,584 persons Hawaii is fairly steeped in legend from the Rainbow Princess to the from"state"projects a'sWr'esuit I Goddess of Fire.

BERKELEY, Cal., (UP)—A cure for hemophilia—the disease associated with the former Spanish royal family—soon may be BLOODHOUNDS WALTER S. MASTERMAN . PUnt AMOCTATIOH announced by the California. University of The university has gone as far as to announce that its division of biochemistry has discovered an entirely new factor in the mechanism of blood clotting. In event experiment 1 ; now under way prove successful the discovery, it is said, would play an important part in the treatment of all' diseases where abnormal bleeding occurs such as hemophilia and hemorrhages arising from jaundiced and other conditions. The two most striking examples of hemophilia" in modern royal families, have been those in the cases of the late royal family of Russia and the royal family of Spain. In these cases the affliction CHAPTER 29 A hand service lift obviated .the need for servants in Colonel Graham's study; and the Colonel fetched, a tray as the lift ascended. From a cupboard he took a beautiful cut glass liqueur set and glasses, and he and Reid sat down. Graham talked in a perfunctory manner about the estate and the work he required done. It really amounted to nothing very arduous: The shooting arrangements; the payment of servants on the estate every Friday, and so on. "I can't be bothered with these matters," he said, in explanation; "and if I am avvay for a week-end there is no one to attend to these small duties. With Colindale I had an arrangement. He would not take a fee, so he had a percentage from the marketing of the estate and garden produce, I don't know whether that would suit you, Reid?" . "It's all bee nsprung on me so suddenly," Reid said with a. laugh he tried to make natural. "I really don't know how long I shall be here. If it's any help to you I'll take it on, as long as Lady Sever- inge doesn't mind." "I'm sure she won't. Then that's settled; it will be a help to me. F.

Announcement of the discovery of the new factor in treating the disease was made by Dr. David M, Greenberg of the division of bio-chemistry and Clarence E. Larson, graduate student formerly in the same department but now in the laboratories of Mount Zion hospital, San Francisco. This factor, according to the announcement, is excreted through the kidneys. The discoverers admit that the extremely complex mechanism which causes blood clotting is only partially understood by science. Calcium Theory Weakened.

"Wonder Dog" Sleeps When the hills and mountains back of Honolulu are laden with heavy clouds in the early evening, it means that Poki, the gigantic- wonder dog, has returned home and stretched out across the mountains for a nap. All of Hawaii's early history is legendary. It was not until after 1820 that there was a written language. A typical legend is that of the Rainbow Princess. Hawaiians tell of a man and wife, who, when scaling some precipitous cliffs on the island of Kauai, accidentally dropped their infant daughter. As ffered by Smith of Geneva Is Fatal; Rites Planned GENEVA—Alonzo Smith, who had a paralytic-stroke last Thursday, died Wednesday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Lulu Smith. Born at Troy, Ohio, Sept. 22, 1853, he came to Iowa when he was 15 and grew to manhood near Newton, He was married to Miss Estella Loupee March 5, 1876 who survives him. There are also two daughters, Mrs. Lulu Smith of Geneva and Mrs. M. I. White of Sandstone, Minn., and two sons, Ralph and Blanchard Smith of Milwaukee, Wis., one child having died in infancy.

However, in certain experiments in which the plasma or fluid portion of the blood was thoroughly dialyzed, it was observed that when the plasma proteins were redissolved in a saline solution containing an adequate amount of calcium, no clot was - formed for 24 to 48 hours. If to this artificial plasma there was added a small portion of the ultrafiltrate of whole blood or serum, the formation of a firm clot was induced within an hour or less. This indicates the presence of a dialyzablc substance other than calcium. It is this substance that is concerned in the new discovery. nesday afternoon. The Rev. C.

(UP)—Santa Claus will be pressed into service this Christmas as an agent of the national campaign to reduce automobile accidents when a new game entailing every traffic hazard is introduced. Called "Play Safe," the game is said by its inventor, Harold Levy, of New York, to rmve been inspired by a reading of the article, "And Sudden Death." Heavy penslities in the form of fines and prison sentences are assessed aganst players who "take a chance" and "tickets" are presented to players who commit traffic violations.

"Of course," Colonel Graham said a little forcedly, "I don't want to ask anything impertinent, but it would interest me to know what sort of life you have had. Hove you traveled abroad, at all?" Reid was surprised and slightly alarmed at the Colonel's diffident manner. "No. I haven't—that is, since I was young," remembering that he had. told Graham that his people came from South Africa— a sheer invention. "You never thought of visiting your old home?" "I have led rather a lazy life, I'm ashamed to say; art schools and that sort of thing," he said vaguely. "Quite so. I wonder whether you would think me rude if I asked you whether you came to this place by chance, or had you any reason for visiting this neighborhood." Reid stared in blank amazement. "None whatever," he said firmly. "I merely wandered here, so to speak." "Quite so! I understand. Strange that you should have come just before the murder " "I hope, Colonel, that you are not suggesting that I had anything to do with it?" "Not for worlds, my dear fellow, nothing was further from my thoughts. I was merely thinking of you, an artist seeking peaceful scenes, and getting landed into this mess." There was an awkward silence, which Reid would not break. "I suppose Sir Henry did not I black windows, down 'Which the rain was running in streaks. "I have quite lost all sense of direction here. Where does the village lie?" The Colonel stood beside him. "JDver there, .but of course you can't see anything with the light on, and ih this storm. Wait." He went to the door and switched off the light, and the room was plunged in darkness. For some seconds spots of light swam before Reid's eyes. The fire was merely a red glow. Presently, far off, he saw lights looking like sunken .stars. "That's the village; you can't see much through this rain, but on a fine night one can pick out every house until the lights go out." He moved to the other side, and Reid followed him with a beating heart. "One can see the Abbey from here' in the daytime—just a | glimpse over the trees. . . . Hello!" j Reid noted a change in the i colonel's voice. j One twinkling light showed in j the blackness, clear and steady—a light burning in an upper window. "I wonder what the devil that's for." Graham said in a rasping .voice. Reid steadied himself. "Is that in the Abbey?" "Yes; but it's quite unusual. They always close the shutters on account of the damp from the lake, and the curtains in any case. On a night like this they would hardly have a window unshaded." A sense of forboding filled Fieid's mind at the sight of that signal light. He had no doubt it had been placed there by Sylvia and it was her S O S. He was glad of the darkness, for he clenched his fists involuntarily and glared at his host "Well," the other said in a forced way, "let's have the lights [ up. I expect friend James has i up." on, and the windows became black again. "I think I'll turn in," Graham said abruptly. "I feel restless tonight and shall stay here. I have a bed that lets down from the wall, and I often prefer this place to ?.ny bedroom. You know your way?" Reid took the hint and wished his host good night. He noticed with interest that the door of the room opening on the staircase was a massive affair, at least an inch thick of solid oak. ?.nd was secured with steel, bolts and a morticed lock. It was a strange door for a Thomas E. Quakers (above), 32 year old Massachusetts State patrolman, has teen chosen to replace the late Gus Gennerich as personal booysuard to President Roosevelt.

He turned at the door with a yawn. "I don't expect I shall want to read—Pm rather tired." The door closed behind him and he went slowly down the few steep steps to the gallery.

"It's a queer thing, but you remind me of an old friend of mine. An extraordinary likeness, but of course that may be a mere coincidence." After the remanrks of the landlord at the "Bull," this turn of the conversation put Reid on his guard. Was it to ask these questions that Colonel Graham had invited him to dinner and offered this job to him? The Colonel was staring into the fire with a heavy frown on his face. He seemed to take n sudden resolve. "You will think my questions impertinent," he said in a harsh voice, and putting his hand into the inner coat pocket of his dress coat he produced a piece of paper and handed it to Reid. It had evidently been cut from a newspaper, and was part of a picture with one figure only showing, but fragments of the rest u[ the group by the side of a '"Shi." I sea t e d m an. Reid gazed at the old worn remnant in bewilderment. room, but turned back resolutely. The gallery was very dark, but Jong practice had made him almost catlike in his powers of sight, and he stole to the door leading to the colonel's strange room. He opened it and noted that it was a flimsy affair and without a lock. Then he placed his foot on the staircase and drew back with an intake of breath. He felt with his hand as high as he could reach. The staircase had gone, and only a smooth surface rose in a slant before him. The stairs moved on a pivot, like a moving stairway and what had been steps were now mere 'plates, tight-fitting and un- climbable. He paused irresolute, and a rush of surmise overwhelmed his mind. The heavy locked door above, th's device of the stairs, and the bloodhounds at large, all spoke of a man in deadly peril. But why. in that case, should the colonel have trapped him in the house?

He lifted his eyes from the paper and met the eyes of Colonel Graham fixed on him with a greedy, fierce stare. "It is very like me," he said quietly. "I don't wonder that you were interested." "You don't know who that is?" The words were spoken as though the other waited anxiously for the answer. Reid handed the cutting back with a laugh. "I haven't the foggiest idea.

"Oh, it wouldn't interest you; a friend I knew many years ago." But Reid's mind was in a whirl, for he had seen more than the mere likeness.
