FOURTEEN! WILMINGTON MORNING NEWS. WILMINGTON. DELAWARE. WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 24, 1947 Synthetic Star Sapphires And Rubies Now Produced NEW YORK. Sept. 23 (JPy Something new in man-made gems synthetic star rubies and star sapphires, was announced today by th American Museum of Natural History and the Linde Air Products Company, the makers. The process is a secret. The star gems are among the most coveted because there is a pale spot of nearly white light in the center, surrounded by streamers shaped like a star. J One of the star rubies is more, ural gems, said Dr. P. H. Pough, th? than 100 carats. It is bigger than ; museum's gem expert who conducted ! any Known natural star ruDy. j the exhibit and announcement. These synthetic stones are in some cases more beautiful than the nat- health comes first Vamp or wot ibasomonts can causo unhealthy liring condition!.

It may mean that they are formed, step by step, by actually growing in what is probably a liquid solution containing the chemical elements of rubies and sapphires.. It is also possible that the stones were made to grow in intense heat, by depositing powdered chemicals on a small nucleus This nnwrier deposit method has made ordinary synthetic rubies and emeralds in tne past. The linde comDanv's new star are the result of wartime This does not mean, he exulained. that the synthetics surpass all natural stones. They do not. But he declared wearers will be unable to .stones distinguish between these and the I work in which they made sapphires real thing. for industrial and war use, in pre- Jewelers, however, will have no cision instruments including watches, difficulty in distinguishing between! Pough said some of these new the real and the synthetic, said star stones are giong into the jew-Pugh, because on the backs of the'elry trade, but that there will not man-made atones they can see many, mis is because each star , gem is made individually. It is still strictly a laboratory test tube Job, witn no industrial process for manufacturing large quantities. He said that because of the individual production thtse new synthetic stones differ individually in beauty the same as natural gems.

Sept. 23 (INS) Francis Caiiinal Spellman said today the ivihzed world is confronted with its greatest cwsis, warning that the "sands of time are running out as mankind faces Us moment of de cision, self-Ftrangulation or survival." The Catholic prelate, head of the Diocese of New York, told thousands of pilgrims at the Pontifical Mass of the Seventh Eucharistic Congress: "For the Atomic Age seems to have brought but a grim interlude in our decade of despair, when science is appraised not for the uses of peace but for its protection against new wars. . . I Scores Anti-Godly Motives Cardinal .Spellman said that twice within the life span of most of "us gathered here" the world has gone to Calvary, "not to the Calvary of peace and love, but to the Calvary or war, not for Christ nor His love but for anti-Godly motives spawned m hell. Recalling the martyrdom of St Ignatius of Antioch in the Coliseum of Rome in the first century of Christ, the Cardinal added: "Today followers of Christ are faced with equally vicious persecution as they refuse to do the bidding of malicious nations and men. "Then a Roman emperor, flushed with power, decreed that Christians must submit to the worship of idolatrous gods, and he who refused to offer such sacrifices faced the penalty of purgings, persecution and death.

J., Sept. 23 -Pi-Thousands of school children from Passaic, Bergen and Morris Coun ties marched through the Freedom Train here today after which the general public viewed the train filled with documents marking mile stones in America's history. Condensation from ERNIE PYLE'S LAST BOOK in Reader's Digest Roof Repairs Question: My wood shingle roof needs repairs. . I would like to paint it after loose and decretive shingles are repaired. Please advise what is the best kind of paint for this pur pose, or would you recommend a shingle stain? I must do the work myself. Answer: By all means use a stain. This will soak into the fiber of the wood and give color, but will allow the shingles to dry out more quickly after a rain than would be the case if paint were used. Paint seals the surface, and water that works up under the shingles dries out so slowly that rotting is likely to set in. Paint can be used on siding shingles, because drainage is so quick that water does not soak in; but roof shingles should be stained. When renailing the shingles get best quality rust-resistant nails.

This mixture is dark. Application of Paint Question: In applying flat oil paint what kind of stroke is preferable a straight up-and-down stroke or a semi-circular stroke? I notice that professionals use the latter, or so it would seem from the brush marks on the finished walls. - Answer: Paint is applied in strips from ceiling to floor, of a conven ient width, but it should not be so wide that the paint on the edge will begin to dry before paint is applied on the adjoining strip. Each brush-ful of paint is spread in small squares: the brush is slapped to the center of the square and paint is spread in all directions to make a smooth coat. Tile last strokes should be in one direction on the wall they would be up-and-down.

Wipe the stain with household a-nmonia, then rinse with clear water. Or wipe with a solution of one tablespoonfui of photographic hypo in a pint of water.

PLUMMER WILLIAM POOLE GUS REISSMAN BRANDYWINE STREET I IS TERMED 'AWFUL MESS'j Brandywlne Street, between Elev- i enth and Twelfth Streets, and Clay-! mont and Heald Streets was termed : "one perfectly awful mess," by Dr.j A. Parker Hitchens, city health com- : missioner, at a meeting of the Board of Health yesterday, attended by several persons interested in health and social problems. He said the board, the owners of the properties and their agents and various social agencies interested had been "more or less blaming each other for the conditions." and that he felt it was time " we all get together to see what can be done." In answer to the remark of a real estate agent urging the board to declare the tenants "legal nuisances" so that evictions would be possible, objections to this line of action were voiced by Dr. Hitchens, Dr. Poster N. Brown, and William McGlone, a protective worker for the children's bureau. Other real estate agents who were present and spoke were: Rube Kel- rick, H. H. Rosin, and John J. Monaghan. Two repiesentaiives of the Red Cross present took no part in the discussion except to explain that they were there to get what information they could and to see whether they might be useful. At the conclusion of the meeting. Dr. George J. Boines, president of the Board of Health, recommended that a committee be formed to loolr into all a-spects of the problem.
