Unless the dog is tied up it spends its waking hours going around. It starts slowly and picks up speed until it makes 50 revolutions a minute.

The only explanation advanced is that thc dog has a "mental quirk." and apparently satisfied thai the hostilities were progressing according to a comprehensive scheme. This, they believe, will give the defenders thc greatest tactical and geographical advantage for tho defense of Hankow, Hanyang and Wuchang—lhc Wuhan metropolitan area which straddles thc f. f ;i; Yangtze river, about 450 miles due iJ;i west of Shanghai.

These two findings of psychological investigators were reported at the annual meeting of the American Psychological Association, which opened four days of sessions at Ohio State University Thursday. Motorists Spied On Thc habit of 20 per cent of the drivers o nthe open road on two-lane highways of allowing less than a second to ccalr an oncoming car was discovered with moving picturestakenfrom a moving car by T. W. Forbes and T. M. Mutson of Yale University. Thc drivers who were spied upon never knew a camera eye was recording their "timing." As an apparently ordinary unit of Traffic Forbes arid Matson drove all through the Midwest, Far West and Northeast. They wanted to know how much time the average driver allowed, when passing a car going his direction, and while a car was coming hcadon toward hm, to get back into his own lane. Thc time taken was after the driver had completed his pass and the arrival of the oncoming ear to the point where it would have crashed with the passer. This is 20 per cent of thc drivers was less than one second. Half of this 20 per cent, the' Yale report staled, definitely were operating in a danger zone. The rest of the public allowed more time. The cautious extreme was in the West who refused to pass apparently because Western travel i.s faster and on straightcr road.s. Thc Yale observers decided that ubout half the drivers who refuse to pass when they see an oncoming car were right, that i.s, passing al thai moment would be hazardous. Thc other half were judged overcautious. The camera also recorded speed of passing. It showed thai six and one- half uiilc sfaster than the car being passed was thc slowest pasing speed. The average passing speed was nine and a half miles aii hour. All these studies were made on two-lane highways. Swing Music Swing music was tried in a manufacturing plant as an aid to work by John F. Humes, University of Pennsylvania. All kinds of music were given phonographic tests. Thc workers, mostly girls, spoiled more work and also made more protests against thc kind of music when swing was on. All other types of music had no effect sufficient to warrant a reliable conclusion, said Dr. Humes. Bui he added there was a slight tendency for both slow-time and fast tempo lo result in increased production. The girls, however, liked Ihe music. They asked for it to be continued when the experiments stopped. They said it put them in good spirits, and made the lime seem to go faster. Tho playing was in 10-miiiutc periods each h M . when he could see an oncoming car hour two miles ahead. | Engineers who. Dr. Humes said, "had Tlie safety allowance in passing was to do a little thinking," growled about longer in tile West than to the-East, the music." MOWICCI about By C. L. DOUGLAS and ;' FRANCIS MILLER NEA Service Special Correspondents; HOUSTON, Texas—"History," and Wilbert Lee O'Daniel, "will record, whether or not bur administration is good. But surely nobody doubts that it will be different—you ain't seen nothin' yet!" , : Texas, still giddy from watching the, year's most dazzling display of po-, litical fireworks, which zipped O'Daniel from political nullity to governor-elect in a few weeks, doesn't doubt lliat statement. . > Already Governor Allred is the Forgotten Man ni Texas, and it was on O'Daniel that all eyes fastened when thc Texas National Guard swung by both men at a recent review, its bandsmen playing and singing the self- written theme song of O'Daniel's campaign—"Please Pass the Biscuits, Pappy!" O'Daniel doesn'l take office until January 17. But already many people, in Texas and out, are asking whether perhaps O'Daniel is the Democratic man of destiny who will capture the presidential nomination in 1940. Texas, having elected O'Daniel by a thumping majority, is now becoming curious about this political prodigy. O'Daniel's career is straight down the American alley of "poor boy works hard and makes good." It is a success story of business triumphs, now crowned by political honors won by discarding political formulas and going to the people on a "come on, folks, let's vole out the politicians" basis. Ohio-Born Kansas-Reared There was no sign of a sometime governor of Texas when a boy was born to the poor family of William O'Daniel in the little river town of i Malta, O., March 11, 1890. The father, who worked in a plow factory when work was available, was killed not long after while at work on a steel bridge job, and the widow was left to support three small children, including one by a former marriage. She sewed and look in washing to keep the family together. Only Effie, the older half-sister, was old enough to help. Wilbert was 3. They called him "Bub." When Wilbert was 5, the family cvcnls cast their shadows. ... As a .vounffsicr O'DJinlel went the other boys one better on the old Hallowe'en trick of Bultinc a.cow m the school building when he and Charlie Ban-ctt (led a neighbor's mule to the schoolhouss bell rope. Now <VD*ni»i poli(/cians one bc " cr in «« matter ot moved to Kansas. His mother was married there to Charlie Baker, a tenant wheat-farmer who had been an ,old friend in Malta years before. As Baker had three daughters by a former marriage, young O'Daniel found himself the only boy among five girls in ;t typical Kansas farm household near Arlington. It was their nursing that pulled him through two desperate attacks of pneumonia. His attachment to his mother was .strong—so strong that years later as word came through of his triumph at the Texas primary in 1938 his first thought was: "My greatest regret is that my mother is not here to know about it." But he was a "regular" boy, ami .swam in Ihe Ninnescah river, hunted quail and jackrabbits, and played boyish pranks. Old schoolmates remember one Halloween incident in which O'Daniel played lead role. He and Charlie Barrett caught a neighbor's donkey and dragged him to the two- story brick schoolhouse. There they lied the long bell-rope that hung clown from the school tower about the brute's neck. All night long Arlington residents uneasily wondered why the school bell kept ringing and ringing. A Success From First Venture While still a mere boy, Wilbert worried about the family's money matters, saying to his mother "What am 1 going to do? I've got to do something, but I don't know what." Work unloading coal cars at a wage that amounted to 6 cents a ton came as a welcome opportunity to help. But by thc time young O'Daniel had finished grade school, greater fields wore opening. He wanted to go to (Continued on Page Three) Woman Killed by Cotton Workers Two Negroes Held for the Slaying of Mrs. Bertha Deaver at L. R. LITTLK ROCK.-Mrs. Bertha Deaver, 39. wife of John A.

Tho report charged that Mr. Cook lad caused the county a loss of more ban $35,000 and that the roads built mder his administration were poorly constructed and had failed to stand up tinder traffic. However, the grand jury said that it found no evidence of felonious intent or evidence that would justify indictments. It rei-omineuded that legislation be enacted to prevent repetitions of the alleged conditions. The report was filed with Judge Fulk in First Division Circuit Court. Mr. Cook declined to comment on it. Thc investigation of the purchases mostly of asphalt used for paving county roads and lumber for bridges, was ordered by Judge Fulk after the grand jury requested a copy of the state comptroller's audit dealing with the- purchases. The request was made after the purchases had been mentioned in the Democratic primary campaign. Mr. Cook was defeated'for the gubernatorial nomination at the August 9 primary by Governor Bajley. Mr. Cook also requested a grand jury investigation "in fairness to himself and family." He made the request on the day following the primary. Before adopting the report, the grand jury heard Mr. Cook, Paul Eberts, road superintendent under the Cook ad» ministration, and State Comptroller J. O. Golf.
