COUKtER 'NEWS PAGE THREE S HO HE NIL At Eclrington Family'Reunion Air Force Also Enlarged As Defense Program Accelerated MANILA (UP)—With Independence barely seven years away and Mth tlie critical fur eastern situation showing no sign of improvement, the Philippine army has embarked on a large-scale program Designed to hasten tlie building of the country's defense. •During recent months, the commonwealth's defense-building activities have centered on the organization of the offshore patrol and improvement of the tiny air force. Tlie number of Q-boats will be .raised from two lo three this year, l(^fh the delivery of two or more imips to the army scheduled for November. Present plans call for tlie purchase ot four or five Q- boats every year so that by 1946 the army will have an offshore flotilla of about 440 vessels. The armaments of these vessels consist of heavy machine guns, mine layers, torpedces -and depth bombs. Mere Planes On Way Eighteen airplanes of various types are scheduled to be delivered in the next few months. Tills number mill bolster considerably the present size of the embryo air corps. Land defense, however, will receive special consideration under the army's newly-launched program. Several new army camps will established in various strategic points of the islands. One of- these camps will be in Parang Cotabato, Mindanao. The 2nd regiment ;ol.the 1st reg ular division of the army will b siatloned permanently at Camp r ng, which will be the center o future defense network in th Philipplne's "Land of Promise. Strategically located, the new cam. also will serve^as a center in til economic development of Hindu nao.

(UP)—Tests conducted to determine how much of a "shock" from alternating current is needed and is safe In electric fences to turn back, livestock without injury brought, according to Prof. H. W. Riley, head of the department of agricultural engineering at Cornell, these conclusions: Animals feel very small currents, but larger currents are required to definitely turn them. There must be high voltage to make the re- quirred current flow through dry footing. If the voltage , is high enough, it is possible that curreiu- llmltlng transformers- that permit . istily small currents may be effective. Just what voltage and just current are needed are not individually and exactly known. All animals tested indicated that they felt three milliampers. Ten milliampers definitely stopped Jersey heifers ten or eleven months old, but it took 15 or 20 milliamp- ers lo stop full grown beef catlle.
