, ^November 28, Alleged Espionage However, Nine of Every Ten Are Found To Be Phonies H.v Tlioiniis M. Johnsons, KK By TJIOM/tS M. JOHNSON (Noted Mllllnry Writer) NKA Service matt Carrvftiaiutenl WASHINGTON-The postman rings more than twice these days at the massive white building that houses the IJepurtinenl of Jii.stiw-if only to deliver daily to the G-men over 200 reports of suspected neutrality violation, sabotage and espionage. Of aclual sfibolnjre there now i.s n little, and soon may be more. How much more depends on how many Allied war orders an- filled here! and it looks now as if that would be far fewer than 25 years ago. Mure imincdiule seems Ihe danger of a nation-wide witch-hunt. It is pre- ihcled by the letters that come not to (he Department o f Justice Mono, but t<> War. Navy. State. Treasury. And, said a man who receives some. ('Nine out of ten are phonies."

So sabotage letters assay higher in boiin fides than spy letters; and there is more you can do about them. You can fiuard factories or waterfronts.

Frozen Sleep Is A Cancer Remedy Last-Ditch Remedy When You Have Only 6 Weeks to Live By HOWARD W. BLAKESI-EK Associated Press Science Editor NEW YORK-Not more lhan six weeks lo live. This is Ihe medical verdict which jhas been the passport for mosl of those who have tried frozen sleep, the human hibernation experiment in biology and medicine. The passport of death was required by the originators of frozen sieep, Doctors Temple Fay and Lawrence W. Smith of Philadelphia, who have done most of the experimenting and who, since they starled a year ago, have taught Iheir lechnique lo well over 100 physicians from all parts of Ihe Olniled Slates. The passport requirement sharply limits exploration of the possibilities in hibernation, for those with six weeks to live are moslly loo far gone lo react like a person who might still have a chance for life. Nevertheless in one of the speediest explorations in medical records, with more than a dozen large hospitals now quietly trying frozen sleep, some of the boundaries of cold as a remedy for disease are beginning to appear, and hibernation has been used on other cases than cancer. The technique of putting a person into iced sleep has also improved. It started with packing a naked torso in cracked ice. That was too uncomfortable, and shivering interfered with getting down to 'the 89 degree temperature sought. Anesthetics were next used to starl Ihe sleep. The first type of anesthetic caused one dentil, indirectly, and different, safer anesthesia is now used. Cold blankets, made witli networks of refrigerating pipes attached to one side, and air- conditioned rooms are also being tried for cooling to the hibernation stage. Before the experiments were starled, it was widely believed a human being would die if his internal temperature dropped below 95. The present known fatal temperature has been pushed down into the low seventies. This was discovered on a nerson whose cancer was so bad that test tube experiments indicated the low seventies were essential to kill the malignant cells. i What cold is safe for humans in general is not known, since probably fewer than 100 persons have been hib- j emitted. But present experience in- j dicates the, life line is in the high eighties. Two ills besides cancer have been reported treated with frozen sleep. There may be others, but they have not been disclosd. Two mn with narcotic addiction were freed completely by five days' hibernation. They had no painful after-symtoms. A woman psychotic, screaming and fighting, w6ke up from frozen sleep of seven days, entirely sane. Her case, however, was a special type of psychosis, which followed a surgical operation, Jt proves nothing about effects of cold on other mental troubles. .For cancer it is definitely established that pain is stopped, sometimes for months. The growth shrinks, occasionally disappearing so that they cannot be detected. It is believed that microscopic traces of the cancer remain. These finally grow again. But death may be delayed, last days made more comfortable. What else is possible for cancer remains an enigma which it is expected only years of trial .will reveal. However, some of those with the six weeks' death passports have lived for months. The cold does for cancer much the same thing as X-rays and radium, by killing Ihe younger tissue cells. But there is one vital difference. The i-ays damage or kill all the tissues they touch. The cold leaves normal flesh, blood and bone unharmed, attacking apparently only some malignant cells.

S -5 (Above) Before, the lighting wot •>' modernised, this redecorated bed- L- rooin appeared dingy and-unin- ' fifing. (At right) With a feio iimple lighting changes, the room took on u neiv> attractive appearance: By Jean Prentice A GOOD BET that is sometimes passed up when redecorating a bedroom is Die modernization of the lighting. Many women do not know How easily and economically the lighting system can be changed to improve the appearance ot a room. A young wonitm of my acquaintance redecorated her rather small single bedroom, and was disappointed with tho results until it occurred to her that the illumination might be at fault. Lights Govern Effect The new light-tinted wall paper niade the room seem a little larger, it was true. Her old walnut bed had been reflnished beautifully. Smartly framed pictures 011 the wall added gay color, and on a new candlewick bedspread was a caudlewick pillow lu. contrasting color. Still the room fell a little short. winter hat, the young woman then modernized the lighting. How she chased the gioom away team an otherwise charming room is apparent from the pictures. Old Lamp Freed of Glare The headpiece of her bed was really too low to use the lamp that hung upon it. She removed it. and placed an old bridge lamp beside the bed. This was brought up to scientific standards with a new specially-designed shade that elini- ?-^ates the glare of old bridge lamps, I must tell you about it! Within this new shade is a metal cap suspended below the bulb. The cap protects the eyes from glare and helps produce softened light. With a 100-watt bulb the illumination is now adequate for reading. At. the mirror, powdering had been partially guesswork. The wall fixture's shade hugged all the light to "itself and would hold only a a large shield of light-weight white parchment, with which she uses a 75-watt bulb. Now the light here is much more helpful. New Celling Fixture The ceiling light was scrutinized next. It glared when one lay in bed and caught sight of the bul'j. Moreover, it gave little light throughout the entire room. The answer was an inexpensive semi-indirect plastic bowl fixture, which entirely eliminated glare and spread a pleasant diffused light through the room. If the ceiling fixture had been a two-socket one close to the ceiling, (as is found in some bedrooms) the semi-indirect effect could have been secured with inexpensive parchment cones that clip onto tho blubs. These are lighting modernization ideas that fit the limited budget. For the more elastic budget ther» are of course additional ideas, adapt- — Hope Star photo Congratulations- - Hempstead County sets the Pace of Progress—May we do our part to follow through.
