THIRTY-TWO Want Ad Headquarters Court 4900 THE PITTSBURGH PRESS ggPeporfmentj, Court 5450 FRIDAY, JULY 6, 1928 AIR TOUR Cigaret Sales Qrow Fivefold In 10 Years Taxes Increase From $66,000,000 to $301,000,000; Snuff and.

Friday, or not later than 12:15 Saturday noon. The Weather Tomorrow Fair Headquarters Phone COurH90O was approximately $22,000,000. Snuff users also are paying slightly more. Taxes paid by users of chewing and smoking tobacco have increased from about $15,000,000 to $62,000,000 in 1928. Cigars paid a peak tax of $55,000,-000 in 1920, which had fallen to $22,-700,000 in 1928. However, the taxes have been lightened practically every form of tobacco except cigar-ets, which are still paying the wartime peak. All tobacco taxes netted $395,000,000 in 1928. Parker estimated that federal receipts have fallen off nearly $3,000,-000,000 from the peak of $6,694,000.-000 in 1920 to $4,041,000,000 in 1928. Much of this is accounted for by the five successive tax reduction laws passed by congress, with total reductions amounting to about $1,-850,000,000 a year. All provisions of the latest law passed May 29 and expected to reduce taxes approximately $222,000,-000 are now in effect. Despite the reductions, however, Parker estimated that the government had a surplus of $373,000,000 July 1. Practically all the reduction since 1918 has been in internal revenues. Other receipts, which include the tariff duties estimated at $587,000,000 for 1928, have remained at about the same level of slightly less than $1,300,000,000 yearly since 1926. Tariff duties in 1921. last year of the Underwood tariff, were about $300,000,000. BANS BAIT-HUNTERS Indianari Complains Anglers Invaded His Garden. By The United Press. Monticello. Ind., July 6. Fishermen or bait-hunters here are requested earnestly by E. R. Gardner and his neighbors to transfer their activities to other fields. Gardner complained to police that he believed "I have been furnishing night crawlers to ah the fishermen in tnis section of the United States." The complainant said that at first he didn't mind the invading of his garden and flower beds but that now it is getting monotonous. He said he believed that boys were trampling down his garden until he discovered that the intruders wore No. 9 shoes. "Lads wearing No. 9 shoes," he said, "should know enough to keep out of gardens." OPPONENTS OF ANIMAL EXPERIMENTS SCORED Dr. William J. Mayo Scoffs At Anti-Vivisectionists. By The United Press. Minneapolis, Minn., July 6. Dr. William J. Mayo, Rochester, struck back at the anti-vivisectionists here last night when he declared before the National Education association convention that many opponents of animal experimentation were often ardent hunters and fishermen. "It is a curious fact," Dr. Mayo said, "that so many opponents of animal experimentation are ardent hunters and fishermen. It is a still more curious point of view that permits anti-vivisectionists to shoot game and to leave to a lingering death from wounds and starvation animals which they fail to bag." The famous surgeon, speaking on vacations, said he believed one year could be saved in medical schools if the fourth-quarter system were used. "It seems unnecessary that students in the prime of life should take a three months' vacation in a 12-month working world," he said. CENEVA-OX-THE-LAKE, OHIO. in the United States from 1913 to 1928, and cigaret users contributed approximately $301,000,000 to their government during the year ended June 30, 1928. They paid $66,000,000 in 1918. The figures are contained in a general review of federal taxation since 1918 by L. H. Parker, chief investigator of the joint congressional committee on taxation.

By The United Press. Berlin, July 6. Amazing experiments are being performed by European scientists in cutting off the heads of insects and transplanting them on the bodies of other insects. Startling results have been produced. Prof. Plavilstshikoff, describing his researches in the Zoologischer Anzeiger announces that a male's head, grafted tt a female's body, endows the female with masculine characteristics. Similarly, a female insect's head, grafted to a male's torso, makes the masculine insect behave like a female. The operation, which is extremely delicate, must be performed with an anesthetic. Prof. Plavilstshikoff administered chloroform or ether to the insects before decapitating them. The scientist's experiments in transplanting heads may be regarded as one of the most important departures since the introduction of rejuvenation by transplanting monkey-glands. It is pointed out that the insects survive decapitation for a relatively long time, since their respiratory organs are distributed over a large section of their bodies. Care is taken to prevent bleeding after the head is removed since loss of blood impairs the growth of the new head on the insect's body. In his description of the results secured. Prof. Plavilstshikoff writes: "If the operation Is successful and the new head grows properly to the body, the behavior of the animals is peculiar. The new head determines the demeanor of the animal. The female wasp with the head of a male wasp suddenly acquires masculine instincts, adopting a fighting mood and becomes sexually aggressive. "But when the male wasp suddenly becomes . the proud possessor of a female head he acquires not merely feminine but even maternal instincts; he gathers food for the future brood in the truly feminine manner." The foregoing description applies only to the transplanting of heads among the same species of insects. Prof. Plavilstshikoff also discusses results achieved in grafting the head of one specie upon the body of another specie. "Here, too," writes the scientist, we ascertained that the new head decides the insect's behavior. Ad June-bug with a dung-beetle's head burrows in dung, while a dung-beetle with a June-bug's head eats leaves and; in the approved fashion of the normal June-bug, climbs out cn twigs, although its legs are not at all adapted to tnese antics." LEVIATHAN MAIL ROBBERS "CLOSED" Ship Commander Jokes About "Couple of Letters" Taken. By The United Press. New York, July 6. Officials of the United States Lines have pronounced the mail robbery on the liner Leviathan a closed incident. Convinced that the mail sacks were tampered with either before they were brought on board here or after they were taken off at Southampton, the officers of the steam ship line discontinued txieir investigation. When the Leviathan sailed from here Commodore Harold Cunningham, in command, joked about the "big mail robbery" which, he said, consisted of "a couple of letters." Postal officials are still investigating, but have failed to find any clue. ' PEACE LEADER DIES Mrs. Fanny Villard, Aged 83, Succumbs in Dobbs Ferry. Bv The United Press. New York, July 6. Mrs. Fanny Garrison Villard. aged 83, noted peace - crusader, died yesterday m her home at Dobbs Ferry. Daughter of William Lloyd Garrison and mother of Oswald Garrison Villard. magazine editor, she was known for her philanthropic activities and work in behalf of world peace. She led a peace parade in New York before the United States entered the World war. Mrs. Villard was the widow of Henry Villard, who lost a fortune and rebuilt it. She was born in Boston and married Henry Villard in 1866. Mrs. Hoover's Father III. PlacervUle, Cal., July 6. Afflicted with a slight heart disease, C. D. Henry, aged 84, father-in-law of Herbert Hoover, Republican presidential candidate, was in a sanitarium here last night. Physicians attending Henry said his condition was not serious, but it would be necessary for him to keep quiet and remain in bed for several days. Omlie says "VVe," she means "the woman flyer in the 1938 National C. Omlie of Memphis, Tenn. She duck and carries no parachute. Not Her Head ! Uniontown, Pa., July 6. Shooting an apple off the head of a person with a rifle makes fine reading in a story book, but Mrs. .lamps Dennis, of the mountain- l ous section in the vicinity of Seaton's lake, refused late yesterday to take a chance of balancing an apple on her head. James Dennis, the husband, had a nice, rosy red apple selected for the feat and his favorite rifle loaded for the occasion. In some manner Mrs. Dennis managed to break away and escape to the home of a neighbor. When officers rushed to the scene they found Dennis asleep, with his rifle in his hand and the core of the apple nearby, indicating that he had devoured the target apple. Dennis was jailed on a charge of wantonly pointing firearms. TRAINING CAMP CALLSJ05 HERE Youths Scheduled to Report at Fort Washington.

FREE STALLINGS AFTER ACCIDENT War Scenario Writer's Auto Skids. Kits Woman. Bv The United Press. Philadelphia. July 6. Lawrence Stallings, author of "The Big Parade," was discharged today when he was arraigned for striking Mrs. Delia McCall, aged 49, with his car, while driving last night on a wet pavement.

The unsuspected existence of a great irrigation system in the Egyptian desert has been discovered by the Misses G. Caton-Thompson and E. Gardner, who are excavating in the Fayum on behalf of the Royal Anthropological Institute of London. The discovery was made owing to a chance combination of circum stances. Heavy November rains pro duced an unusual abundance of plants in the Fayum. When invest! gations of one strange looking strip pi vegetation were made, it was found that the weed patch covered a number of . sand-filled irrigation channels, some of them as much as 30 feet broad. The irrigation chan nels led to the clay bottomed de pressions peculiar to this northern desert region, which were at one time full of water before the shrink age of the Fayum lake. This great irrigation system was quite unknown and unrecorded Thirteen miles of channel have now been leveled and mapped by the expedition. It was found that they served 21 square miles of desert. A great stone-lined reservoir with stor age capacity of some 86,000 gallons has been discovered and excavated. It w?as filled with drift sand but in the lower levels of the filling grape vine branches in quantity were found, proving that at one time vineyards had existed nearby. At the bottom were water jars of the Ptolemaic period and further evi dence of date was found in a small quarry close by in the shape of coin dating from Ptolemy II. B. C 283-245. An adjacent 16-room house, of which the contents were of good quality, was probably the residence of an irrigation official. The excavations are being continued with the assistance of the Egyptian minister of public works. by whom free labor for this part of the expedition's work is being supplied. MRS. SHAVER ATTACKS SMITH IN STATEMENT West Virginia Leader Says Dry Democratic Women Aren't Fooled, Bv The. United Press. Washington, July 6. Mrs. Clem L. Shaver, chairman of the West Virginia section of the National Woman's Democratic Law Enforcement league, issued a bristling statement today attacking Governor Alfred E. Smith, Democratic presidential nominee. "Regardless of what Democratic leaders from top to bottom may do, we dry Democratic women will not support the dripping wet ticket and joke platform named by the Tammany delegates to the recent convention at Houston," said Mrs. Shaver, who is the wife of the Democratic national chairman. "And furthermore, I do not believe more than a few of the millions of Democratic women in this country can be fooled as all the Democratic leaders have been fooled by it. "How many times has Tammany supported the party nominee in the past 16 years? Not once. Yet they have fooled these heretofore able Democratic leaders into saying, T am a Democrat I will vote for Tammany, whisky and a trick platform.'
