JUESDAY, APRIL 14. 1943 • EDSON IN WASHINGTON BY PETER EDSON Courier News Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, April 14_Supe you are a real estate man or .private building contractor or just an ordinary citizen brought up on all the old copybook maxims to the effect that "You, too, should own your own home" to be considered a respectable citizen in the community- Suppose further, that in these flush war boom times, you decide you want to build a new house— Where, does this- new War Production Board order placing limitations on building construction leave you? In the first place, if you don't in one of those localties still known as a "defense" area, you might just as well forget all about building that dream -house-\vith-blue- room-up-stairs-and-rambier-rose- climbing-over-the-door - and-yard- where-the-kiddies-can-play. Until the war's all over, PRIVATE BUILDERS GET I A BREAK II' you live in i defense area, and Jif you work in an essential war [industry you have a chance. No one has yet accurately defined just what a defense area is, but if you'll take a rule of thumb definition, it's an area within two miles of a war production plant, or hard I by a transportation system that will I take you to this aforesaid essen- jtial war production job within one' \ur for a cost of not over 10 Tliis is the National Hotis- jing Administration's unofficial jguide as to whot constitutes a de- |fense area. Suppose you qualify as to location. What are your chances of getting in on any of this new [construction? In the long run, whatever new [construction is • done will be done Iby private builders who' get the con- I tracts from the government for approved jobs. John B. Blandford I Jr., new National Housing Administration boss, insists that this war I emergency is not to drive private Ibuilding out of the field and set hovernment housing up as'a mon- hpoly. Blandford 's idea is that pri- Ivate business shall do all the nous- ling work it possibly can, the gov- lemment stepping in only when Ithere are temporary rousing pro- Ijects to be built, or low rent pro^ jects which private enterprise can- pot finance or handle profitably. The remaining restrictions are [primarily concerned with the types hf housing permitted. First, there Imust be established a clear cut [proof that additional housing- is [needed, because ot existing or future [shortages of shelter sufficient to [house workets in war industries. No [need, no house. After that, no [housing unit will be authorized Lvhich will rent for more than $50 h month or seii for more than These restrictions are- to be situation will be on buliding materials' by the end of summer. If shortages of metal for plumbing and wiring * and eaves and heating units become more critical, by 1943 the order may be that the only new housing construction permitted will be for barracks.

(SO YOU'D LIKE |rO REMODEL The restrictions will apply even l:o remodelling. Tf your house can be made into a duplex or small jipartments to shelter additional [families, the chances are'such re- Imodelling would be approved—if it's in a defense area.

CHICAGO (UP) — Dr. Sidney Smith, Jr., scientific prtee winner as an undergraduate for his dis- of sugar rod "darning eggs" or sewing 1 torn blood vessels, has •evealed} a new treatment for ser- oiiSN>«rns. In a thesis for a master's degree the Rush Medical College graduate ecommends a warm, moist a>r ;reatment — "air ointment" — in- tead of ihe common chemicals low used for serious burns. Smith has been engaged in research at the University of Chicago for the past two years. Two years ago, as a junior, he won the [larry Ginsburg Memorial prize for inventing the sugar-rod "darning egg." He solved the knotty problem of sewing the delicate tissue of i«r jured blood vessels by the use of sugar rods to hold the tiny tubes firm during the operation. The rods; inserted into the torn ends of the blood vessel to bp patched, dissolve in the blood stream after the severed edges of the tube are stitched. Says Lessens Infection Smith's new theory for the treatment of burns resulted from his recent experiments with rats in which he discovered that warm moist air proved superior to applications of tannic acid' and bu- tesin picrate-ointment. Neither tannic acid nor butesin picrate ointment possess specific accelerative ' healing action on the basis of experiments. Smith reported. It seems their main function is to provide an insoluble coagulant over the wound, he added. "infection under the coagulant prb'duced by tannic acid has been reported many times and constitutes the chief objection to its use as a medicine," Smith asserted. Alkalinity Delays Healing Four weeks of experiments with rats showed that 70 to 82 per cent of the animals given the "anointment" were healed compared to G3 per cent given the butesin picrate and only 48 per cent given the tannic acid. Combination of the "air ointment" with either of the other agents did not improve the rate of healing. ' Smith.tested his new method by enclosing the burned surface in a humidity chamber which was kept at 90 degrees Fahrenheit. He found that debris of the wound softened and sloughed off within five days. accelerating the healing action. Alkalinity of tissue is regarded as important in promoting infection, and dryness brings about alkalinity, Smith pointed out. He explained that by preventing dryness, his moist air treatment avoids the "chief factor delaying wound healing." . PITTSBURGH »UP) — When a Gorman .submarine torpedoed and sunk u merchant .ship on which he was first mat? early in the war, August Hiirtnumn "took it" with the stoic culm- of an old seaman.

We won't look like stopped barber poles. We won't all look alike. However, the clothes' regulations do eliminate fluttering capes, whooshy skirts, pock-sts-where-are- you-going-with-that-gal clothes whereby too many of us achieved a kind of individuality. Soon to go under forthcoming regulation beauty gadgets, are the countless shades of face powder and some other cosmetics, too, that were worn for sheer shock value. And there's a cue. The way to individuality lies now, more than in pre-war days, along the path of advance planning. From here on, the smart woman will put her mind to her whole wardrobe, to her whole bathroom and boudoir shelf of beauty aids, before sha shops. She'll know move about them in relation to her own personal plan for beauty and charm. Instead of the startling lipstick she might have bought- last year,, knowing she'd want a change within a few weeks anyway because everybody else would have a different one she'll choose a color that harmon- izss with her own skin color, and with the color in her wardrobe EXERCISE IMAGINATION AS WELL AS MUSCLES She'll be more interested, too,- in exercise routines to do faithfully because she'll recognize that now more than ever, natural grace counts. She'll value her good beauty salon's advice, particularly its courses designed to teach hsr how to supplement, by home techniques, the basic workout she does in the shop. And she'll exercise iher imagination as well as her muscles. She'll have a lot of simple devices—for instance, hair ribbons to tie her curls back, at home—to kesp her looking and feeling attractive anc to keep that all-impotrant element A Cordial Welcome Awaits You at The Beauty Bar One of the finest, most niod ern shops in Northeast Ar kansas.
