Science Mwjtcs For Man's Mistakes For some tiine'llie prophets of doom have been shouting their say abotil otu 1 fasL-viuiishing .soil winch, it seems, is being switched from under the very soles of our -shoes Ijy such things as dust storms and erosion. The situation is indeed Homcthinj; to view with alarm and the worrying is time well spent. But now scientists' come forth with the news that within 25 years the average nifln may be yetting his I'ood from "soil-loss farms." Such farms would emplpy chemical tanks, in which food plants show phenomenal growth. With the coming of soil-less farms, it won't make any difference whether we're living on bedrock or not. 1'ho crops will still be raised. Necessity for the annual plowing will be eliminated, however, and the land tan be given a new cover of grass and U-ccs. Dust storms and serious erosion can't occur where the earth is llins protected. Speaking before the New York Railroad Club,G. Edward Penclray, science writer and past president of the American Rocket Society, told also of the possibility of a world in which men will wear clothes of fireproof arliiidal fabrics made from cellulose or spun glass and occupy houses lighted, heated, cooled, hurvudinetl, and amdeancd automatically the year roniS-Tjy electricity. . : . ; All these things may tnmo about by 1963, according to Mr. Fendray's :,um- ma,ry of the research activities now going on in laboratories throughput the covmtry. There are more wonders. By 19G8 the average man's library may consist of small spools of film—each representing a complete book—which will bo mid with the aid of a projection machine smaller than a typewriter. By that time scientists will probably be smashing the atom to smithereens, thus opening the way to miracles scarcely imagined today. Weather reports will be based on rocket soundings of. the upper atmosphere and there will be attempts! to shoot an automatically controlled rocket carrying mail and express across the Atlantic. There is of course the very pood chance that man won't witness nil OUT OUft WAY wonders within even.250 >'W8, p,t)l. the fact remains that science l\aa kept pretty -well on top of things and gives evidence of contii'uifog to be #ulo to make up for such mistakes as America's waste of her natnt'al resources. Meantinie, howovev, loud coiu'.orp- nation iof snch abuse by the ordinary citi/en is well in order and may \>u almost as valuable as the more con- slnictive coiitribntioiis on the part o,f science. vs..

Miss Wilcox's black eyes darted swiftly from one to the other of them; mid Dr. Rogers' .voice souncicd unnalm-jilry loud when he said, "Well—we'd belter get down to business, hadn't we? I understand you're going (o re-decorate our leading lady, Mr. Manthon." Constance knew that Derek's hands were shaking as he worked, {rowiiing, glancing from her tp the pictured inwge of Camilla Wynne uud back again— Si: Kogers suggesting from time to time, "A little more of black stuff on her lashes, don't you think, ivjap- thon?" ...

Ernest Thp'rvaW's wife, Derek had writteti, had been a Spanish, lady.' As the boy stirred restlessly, Mark Rogers said in a swift un, dertone, "Sit here, please," and Constance dropped into a chair by the side of the bed. The boy moaned, cried out sharply, "Camilla— Cam, dear? . . . Can't you move? . . . Oh, no— no, no!" and seemed about to open his eyes. Dr. Rogers mufmured, "Closer. He's had an opiate, and can't, see vevy clearly." Constance leaned forward, clasped her hands together on the rage pf the bed, and breathed, "Yes. I'm here, Jo-jo." "But I killed you," he protested in a bewildered whisper. "You were— deaoV . . . J saw'you— lying there— in the light of the car. . . . I called you, but you, didn't move or speak. . . . Then 'someone— came — and took you away." f 'BUt, you- silly boy," Constance said, making hex- voice sing, caressing each syllable \yith her lips as she had often, watched Camilla Wynne read her lines in a close-up, "I'm here now, aren't I?" He seemed to think that over, frovvnuig with the effort of concentration. His hand fumbled for her- fingers. -• "•Yes," he said slowly. "I guess it's yp.ij all right— this time. Your hand is warm— and you smell sweet. . . . You never touched me any of those other times you came." "That's because I never did come before— not -really," Constance told him softly. "You. dreamed all that, you know. But this time you're not going to dream — not about me, nor any-: thing else— just sleep." . • He sighed,' a quivering | li(tle sigh, like a child who has cried himself out.
