Intensified the patriotism of [he 100,000 Chinese In the Islands and liel(jcd stabilize the economy of this Insular Commonwealth. Otherwise, there arc few nollce- ilu effects here of the conflict which nl times lias brought war within 700 miles of the Phillp- rincs, Chinese merchants are osllmiit- 'd lo control nearly 90 per cent 1 of the retail trade, and much of .he wholesale business in these stands southeast of China. Within a few weeks after the L,ukonchlno Incident west of Peking July 7, 1937. Japanese merchandise Imcl disappeared from .he shelves of the hundreds of ittlc Chinese "llendns" from J/Jon to Siilu. Pew hnd to bo "per- laded" io replace these goods itli products of America nnd Eu- ope, even at considerably higher osts. Tiiis was one of the factors that oosted the Philippines tcmporar- y this spring to fifth place in (he it of the United States' best '.'U5- •mcrs.

Con- Ibnllons to the relief and war icsls in Chungking leave Manila gnlarly. Manila's four Chinese daily cwspapers continue their cditor- 1 denunciations of Japan, mini- fee the importance of Japanese Hilary advances and proclaim in Id headlines the reports of Chi- ise victories. This week the Philippines Con- ess for Democracy and Collec- •e Security held a national con- ntion in the Manila Opera House ill. approved a resolulion seeking extend the unofficial anli-Jap- lese boycott,in the islands. Manila's active young Chinese consul-genera!, . Harvard - educated C. Huang-son Young, makes speeches almost weekly denouncing Japanese aggression and np pealing to Filipinos to beware of the purported danger that they will eventually fall under Tokyo's rule. The wartime demand in Japan for raw materials has served to broaden the Philippines mining Industry, previously restricted almost exclusively to gold. Production of Iron ore, copper and manganese in the Islands has increased In the past two years, nnd more than 90 per cent has gone to tlie blast furnaces of Kobe and other great. Nipponese industrial centers. Japan's occupation of Hainan nnd the Spratlcy islands left the Philippines virtually surroundzel ay territory, it jrotight a somewhat vague reali- aition to many Filipinos that geo- •raplilcally they belong to the East Asia where Japan is building "new order."

Y~(UP)-Melcorolo- gisU who watch varl-colored bal' loons float into the sky are .responsible for the most accurate method devised for guiding airplane pilots through hazardous winds, according to Elbert F Corwin, Kensselner Polytechnic Institute meteorologist. The new technique, with its narrowed margin of error, is expected to prevent pilots from encountering violent up-winds and Ircueh- - . ... ....... .. _. _ ....... ^ . chtcf-of-staff — contradicting the i sllck .erous down-drafts that sometimes expressed fears of High Commissioner Paul V. McNutl and other Americans that an In- Philippines would not influential dependent be safe. MacArdiur Interprets Status MacArthur said: "It has been assumed, In my opinion erroneously, that Japan covets these islands. Just why has never been satisfactorily explained. Proponents of such a theory fail fully to credit the logic of the Japanese mind. "Strategically. possession of these islands would introduce an element of extraordinary weakness In the Japanese empire. It would split the empire militarily into two parts, separated by a broad stretch of ocean, and between it would lie its present military enemy, China. "Every reason that Is now advanced as to the indefensibility of the archipelago .by the United States, because of its distance therefrom, would apply in principle to its defense by Japan. As a natter of fact, its defense by Japan would be infercntially more complicated because of the invincibility of the Filipino to forciBn rule and his unodubted refusal to render military service to Hie Japanese empire. "Economically, ' Japan would ain nothing by conquest in these islands that It could not consum- into mountainsides. It basc calculations on (ion that balloons guides them by enabling the pilots t;< know at which levels they may fly to avoid the currents, Corwin said the new method utilizes a (seonictrlcal principle, ilc- lormfning distance through an.-K-^ tfcervers at present ..,-,, ^^ nssump- - -.. always rise about COO feet per minute. Work With Weather Jiurca Corwin and two student assistants, at the request of the U. S. Weather Bureau, for months sent colored balloons into the air and observed their flight to heights of five miles and distances of from 10 to 17 miles, It was found that "up and down" winds accelerated, slowed, or even reversed, the balloons' normal rate of climb. Thus the Rcnsselaer findings showed, the pilot of an airplane might encounter violent winds by lryiii°- to avoid them, because winds reported at 10,000 feet, might really be at 8,000 or 12,000 feet. mate more cheaply by and frieiullv advantageously and normal commercial process." The R.P.I, meteorologist's meth-, od utilizes a small balloon tied by a 100-foot line to the main, "sounding" balloon. A special the- odolite, similar to those used by. weather observers and surveyors to study angles, would thon measure the angles between it and the two balloons, Calculations then determine to within relatively few feet their height. Error as Illjh as 33 I'd, "We checked the positions of the balloons each minute and later compared these with whut they would have been assumed lo be under the assumption of constant rate of ascent," the professor said. "On still days we found th e assumed rate correct enough, but on other days with up and down winds the actual rate was much faster or slower than the assumed, frequently as much as 25 per cent. In one Instance the error was 33 per cent. "The principal value of this ;ie'.v method Is that we may learn more about the frequency and violence of high winds in different sections of the country, particularly in mountainous regions, and report accurately lo those who fly what to avoid or take advantage of oil any particular day."
