Ihmps— Boon? Expermienls with the new germ- killing ultra-violet ray lamp conlhuio .successful and it seems entirely possible thai humanity is calmly entering ' upon the era of healthful living science has drt'funcd of for so rn'wny v, years. The problem that fam! I he in- ;j .venters— Dr. Harvey C. KenUchlei; ;iml ; Dr. Robert F. ja'me's— was to produce ; an ultra-violet, light that would not '.I' harm the .eyes. Many tests indicate ! ',iiat' aVtci? I'd years' work they have • succeeded. ; the lamps have been used siici'O.sM'ul- ' ly iii hospitals, banks, drug stores, ros- , taurants, bakeries, and manufacturing ; plants— ahd also ,in dairies, bog, pens, ami |ieri houses. One,of tlic lamps cut the death rale for chest operations in ' emu hospital, for example, from 5.5 ~. per cent to 2.9. \ . The ultra-violet light kills liactovia •. in less than i\ second. It attacks germs in the surrounding- air and oil the stir- face of exposed objects. Shining on ••.- shelves of clean glasses in a restaurant . in one test, it reduced the number of germs en -the rims from thousand.* to five or six, j The lamp ilsclf usually takes (ho - form of a long, horizontal tube of -:'; mercury vapor. A cuiia'iu of bluish ; light comes from this tube. ^'hp. trein'cnddus potentialities of Hits ,; iiiyentjpii. should be Apparent: If it j becomes practical for every ijiiy use it "• will affect the lives of every man, woman and child in the communities - Where the lamps are installed. The greatest booh, of course, will be ,\ what the invention should do to such «. highly communicable diseases as the '' common cold.

The lamps cmi be miumfaeUired at comparatively low cost. If they turn : out to be as efficient ami practical as the early experiments indicate they ' will, a hew industry will come into being, for every person who caii possibly afford one of the lamps • will want to own one. ^Jfhiis by giving Ihe world an ultra- OUT OUK WAY violet ray thai apparently is as harmless to ihi eyes as it is harmful to germs, two scientists seciii' about 16 write iin epochal 1 chapter in the ioiig story of the fight for improvement of the general public health—in addition id giving economic recovery something of n Hliot in tiie industrial arm.

Tax Is collcffc fool ball a big biiKines* or an essential stale govcniinent function? The answer will sicem pretty obvious to anyone who has ever attended a big-time game and, along with some 50 or GO thousand other people, paid upward of 53 for a .seal. Hut the U. S. Supreme Court, 'has been asked to decide (he issue. Robert 11. Jacksun, U. S. .solicitor-general, has (••out a brief to the high court demanding thai Hie University of Georgia and the Georgia School of Technology pay federal taxes on their games. The i-eg'ciils of the schools claim that in staging the games the colleges are in reality ••engaging in the performance of aii essential government function" and that the tax would lie an unconstitutional burden on the slate. Seeking a reversal of a lower court decision, jftcksoil contends that football is hardly one of the functions that (be founders of the federal government intended .should be reserved for the several slates. tfut why all the fuss on the part of the schools? \Vlio will pay the tax anyhow? S'ou guessed it: the same people that piiy all the Oilier taxes. Nobody, of course, but the Great American Public. 'U. S. One' Most travel guides are duller tliiui ." thu Congi-i'ssion;!!

Al leriglh he demanded with a patience he was obviously forcing upon himself, "Would you mind explaining yourself?" "I just—can't go," Constance repeated piicously. "I—it is unthinkable." "I hadn't even -Jnderslood that you. knew tlie Thorvalds." "I—I have met them . . . Why didn't yon tell mo where you were taking me?" '"Principally"—ho spoko as if he were humoring an exciled and unreasonable child—"because it could hardly have occurred to me that any of the Thorvald family had done you so grievous an injury Dial you would find helping them intolerable. 1 ' "They haven't. . . . They've probably forgotten my existence," Constance floundered. "I—it's .Mulling I care to tnlk about Dr. Rogers. . . . Must you stand there Iooki;:s »t me as if I were a—a biological specimen?" "Aren't you?" ho asked with a twinkle of exasperated nmiisc- mcnl. "My dear young woman, please l)c adull. Yoii can be, I know. . . . The Thorvalds are friendly, generous, courteous people. You say, yourself, that they have never injured you. They are in deep, trouble, and I believe you can Jielp them, or I certainly shouldn't have put Mr. Thorvald to tlie expense of bringing you across tlie continent—or you to flic trouble of coming." He broke off, and stood for a moment just waiting. Bui in his waiting there was something inexorable and compelling that seemed to reach out and beat her down like a physical force. "AH right," she said in a smothered voice. "You're hot leaving me miich choice, are you?" Without a word, he turned and strode toward thp waiting car, and Constance followed. .* * * JNS1DE the car, Dr. Rogers said with a magnanimous air of VI LAUGHS DOCTOR . o Jelling tbe dear) ps« "Ury ii L IUM9RE / COWAN / STONE i, wt, NEA S«v««, IK. dead, "I understand that the young artist who did The Lady in Blul w, painting Miss Thorvald's portrait— Manthori—Isn't that his name?" "Yes," Constance said, trying to echo his off-hand tone. "That's it." "If Miss Thorvald's portrait is as successful as yours," the doctor was going on, "Mahthon ought to be a made man—that is, supposing popularity is the mark he's shooting at. ... Do you know, in my weak moments I envy fellows like time he drops off to sleep, lie • starts up again and begins to cry ' out, 'I killed her, I tell you. , You can't fool me. But she Manthon." "Why 'weak moments'?" Constance asked tartly. "Aren't you being just a little bit patronizing?" He glanced at her, chuckled, and then sobered abruptly. . . "Lord, no," he rcpUed7""l"know my place. Manthori creates things. I just try to patch up what someone else lias wrecked. . . Sometimes I think it would be a whacking good.sort of life—just to create beauty, instead of ttnkering ugliness. Did you ever stop to think that a doctor spends half his time patching up people who might be belter oft dead, 59 they can go right on suffering some more?" Constance said vaguely, "Yes, I suppose so." She was caught up in the night o£ her own racing thoughts; Oerek s face when be first saw her there. . . . The first words lie would say lo her, and'she to him. . . . And from time to time, a chilling, dread of the fantastic Hi tag she had come here to try to do.

When she did Camilla Wynne for her friends, they rocked with mirth. But she hadn't jeen brought here to be amusing. This was stark reality.

'It's an amazing resemblance, doctor. With a little touching'-up icre and there, she could fool Miss "Wynne's mother." "How is.Mr. Thorvald?" "Very restless, Doctor. Every nearly normal as possib'lc.

It was huge and airy, with cool plastered walls. A door opened out upon a gallery shaded with roses and wisteria. Below was a flowering potto with a pool and fountain. As Constance sat down at a dressing table to remove her hat, Miss Wiicox watch"- 4 her critically. , • 'Yes, it's realty an amazing resemblance," sha said again, "with your eyelashes built up and your hair changed a little. . . We've found two or three pictures of her that will- help, and fortunately there's a young—but just .wait here a minute—" She hurried out, still talking.
