14 THE HELENA DAILY INDEPENDENT. SUNDAY, MAY 19, 1940 MONTUU mm OF ENTRY SAYS IT MAY LEAD TO BANKRUPTCY AND DICTATOR Washington, May IS.-- (/P) -Jamos S. Komper, president of the Chamber of Commerce of tho Unit ed States, warned the country today that entry into the European war might lead to national bankruptcy p.nd open the door to dlstatorshlp ai lome. The Chicago Insurance executive who was elected head of the organization ot business men at its an cual meeting May 2, sounded this warning In a formal statemeu Issued through chamber beadquar ters here. "The primary concern of Amerl can business today Is that our coun try not become involved in any foreign war," he said. "Business Is not looking for tho advantage ol war profits and definitely is op posed to sending American boys and young men to fight on foreign soil. "This does not meau that business favors peace at any price. Or the contrary, it believes that every provision should "be made for the ^atlonal defense. Peace for ourselves best can be assured by pro- riding ourselves with a navy, air [orce and military supplies ad juate for any emergency." Cost Too High Declaring tho cost of govern- cnt was entirely too high, the Chi- :ogoan added: "That Is why business properly protests Ihe resulting high rates taxation. But BO far as the' national defense is concerned, busi- icss is willing to assume its full hare of the cost." Every business man recognized hat federal spending must be cur- ailed--"and that soon"--, Kemper ontlnlied, and "participation by us the present war would make hat curtailment impossible." "A breakdown of the credit of ur government would open the ame door here that has made pos- ible tho appearance on the Burop- an scone of the totalitarian state, nd with It the loss of representa- Ive government."

WU/KIE Pontlac, Mich., May 18. -- (/P) -Think of a lot of reflnementa In .he present-day automobile -- regardless of tho make--that appeal you most and the chances arc more than even that one or moro oC them came from the brain of Benjamin Henry Anlbal. Perhaps you've never hoard of Ben Anlbal. Not so tho men who make motors and motorcars every lay, or those who made them three lecadcs ago. Just about that long las Anlbal been designing and 1m- irovlng tlie automobile and pin(r an engineering genius thai its associates anil pro Cession a' ·Ivals--If such there be In the ndustry--say ranks him as one of tha really great automotive engineers. To his inventive skill hag been attributed development ot sucli contributions to driving comfort as the remote-control g ear-shift multi-beam head lights, no-drafl ventilation, mechanical fuel pump, ndlrect Instrument panel lighting, lulomatlc spark control and other equipment. Anlbal, one-time Gcnossce county (Michigan) farm boy who took hi a engineering degree at Michigan Stale college In 1909, Is vice president In charge of engineering o: he Pontlac division of Genera Motors corporation. Ho was chic' engineer of tho Cadillac Motor Car company when he was 33 years old It was whllo ho wns associated vlth the Cadillac company that ho ntroduced tho first eight-cylinder car In tho United States. It was here also that ha aided, n 1312, as a member of th« cngl- icerlng staff, In designing the :our-cyllndcr Cadillac that flrfit in reduced electric starting and Hght- ng in the industry- Anlbal believes tbe automobile Is mndlcappcd right now by a lack of use-facilities. Ho Is an ardcnl advocate of the "super highway.' "Just as fast as super-highways iro developer!," ho explains, "the lulomobile will become more valu- iblc." lie feels that the motorcar Industry "has como of age" since 1 0 0 3 when he became a part of It "From now on," ho saya, "there sn't going to bo tho engineering turn-over there was between I B 0 9 and 1940, but there still aro a lot of possibilities for the engineer In the motorcar Industry." Ho looks for tremondoua changes n design in the next decade, but won't hazard more than tho suggestion that In appearance alone .ho changes will be startling In comparison with current models. · * * He believes in tho automobile In dustry; he bcllevps that It succeeded because Its founders "really lad something that was n ceded," ,nrt, In contrast to some other pro- [ucers of ncccssnry commodities \*ore able to steadily Improve qual- ly and at the samo time reduce he cost to the consumer.

BLAKESLEE Aliocltted PrMf Selene* Editor New York, May 18.--Scientists are getting their seismographs ready to measure the vibrations of the earth sha-ken by the big guns at the fronl during battle. They are searching for means to keep mocroscoplcally small babbles of gas from forming within the metal with which the big guns are cast They are even thinking about Infantile paralysis, tho children's disease, because It Is one of the epidemics which can be spread by microbe warfare. In the air, on the ground, under the ground, at tho front, behind the lines, and In the home, science [s everywhere a part of both war- making and defense. It la, however. In defense that tho scientists niny do their best work, because the great majority of them are bitterly opposed to hiving their discoveries usod for destruction. Heading the earth's vibrations at the front is a proposed way ot locating the positions ot tho enemy's guns. Seismographs accurately lo- cnto the positions of earthquakes thousands ot miles distant. The problem of locating guns Is basically the same. It is not, moreover, as strange as some other guns spotting devices ot science. In the World war, for example, a junior officer, whose Job at home was scientific, lay In his tent on the west front listening to tho crash ot big guns. His tent was old and porous. His attention was attracted by periodic whistling sounds coming from the fabric. Investigation showed that the sounds came from air rushing through pin-size holes, None but a scientists would have noticed what the young officer observed next. This was that the whistling sounds were rhythmically following tho bursts of big guns, and were due to compression waves in the air from tho Impact of tho explosions at the muzzles ol tho guns. There was a uniform time log between the sound wave and tho following compression wave, and this difference made It possible to spot the guns. The minute hubbies of gas In metal weaken the tensile strength of guns Getting them out is one of the means BUTTE WOMEN RECOMMEND CHINESE HERBS "After years ot suffering from rheumatism and stomach trouble, I found relief from Wons Sun's Chinese Itcrh Medicine After one week's treatment ] began to feel better, and after taking the herb medicine for a few v celts I feel Hko s, new woman."

Infantile paralysis is one of 15 human epidemics listed by the journal of the American Medical association as possible to be spread by enemy agents. Science appears better equipped to defend nations against microbe warfare than any other form of forceful aggression. The possibility of disease warfare was discussed In the World war. One nation was said to have studied it closely. In Germany in 1937, the Doutsche Wehr, a military publication edited by former German nrmy and navy officers discussed microbe warfare. This journal suggested that spring and fall are tho best seasons for microbe attack. Within the last two years attempts were made to obtain the virus of yellow fever from the Rockefeller Institute. Tho virus is tho cause of yellow fever and Is usually spread by mosquitoes from one human being Lo another. The reasons for trying to get tho virus were not clear, but they were made by agents of a foreign nation. That country is not among the present belligerents. For at least two war diseases defense preparations already have been made. Ono is influenza. It is 22 years slnco tho last great flu epidemic, which come In the World war. As flu epidemics run in cycles of 25 to 30 years, medical scientists are talking ot the likelihood of an outbreak In this war. The other great war epidemic Is typhus fever spread by lice. Dr. Hans Zlnnscr, of Harvard, and associates and American medical men lu Washington havo developed, for the first time, an apparently effective method of producing a vaccine which will protect both soldiers and :lrlllans against typhus. GEARING OF INDUSTRY TO DEFENSE NEEDS HAS EFFECT New York, May 18.--(fl)-Sweeping changes In the buslnesr. activity may result from the gear- Ing of the United States' vast Industrial capacity to defense needs and from dislocation In foreign trade. Wall street analysts said today. Despite the collapse ot speculative markets this week and fear In financial circles the German onslaught may curtail Europe's ability to buy in this country, many economic experta looked for expansion of heavy Industry under stimulus of tho greatest arms spending here since World war years. Aircraft, shipbuilding, machine tool, metal and machine accessories Industries were judged In financial Quarters destined for faster action to supply both home and Allied orders, particularly If the Allies hold out in face of the nazl effort to achieve a quick knockout on the western front.
