BLAESLEE AP Science Editor NEW YORK — Electricty is the explanation of the feeling of suf....focal- ion in badly ventilated, crowded room. Tliis is (ho report of Prof| Dr. A. L. Tchijevskyq, of Moscow, to the International Congress of Biophysics, Biocosmics and Biocracy. The ele- tricity is due to charged particles of nir. Air nlwasy contains many charged^ particles, called ions, some of them positive, others negative Prof. Tchi- jcvsky found, however, that when breath is exhaled, there is a large increase in the number of charged: particles. The increase is almost wholly in positive particles. This is equivalent lo exhaling a little positive electricity into the air. In laboratory experiments, Prof. Tchijevsky says, he has proved that these positive electrical particles slow, down the "exchange" of gases in the lungs. Exchange weans taking up oxygen from the air and giving off carbon dioxide froro the Jungs. Consequently, in the crowded room, the lungs have to work a little harder, not because of lack of oxygen in tho air, but duo to the positive electricity. As a further demonstration of this, Prof. Tchijsky experimented with air .•ontaining an excess of negative* electrical particles and found that this kind of electricity speeds up the breath ing "exchange." , There are in existence just 25 garments made of chinchilla pelts before trapping the animal was forbidden. Most of the garments are in the possession of royalty. They are valued at from ?SO,000 to ?130,QOO.
