24 THfi ALTOONA MIRROR—WESPAV, NOVEMBER 12, 1929 URGING NEED OF COASTAL DEFENSE (By UniliHl Press.) WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 12.— Lack of funds is impending development of coastal artillery defense of the United States and It9 outlying possessions tho annual report of Major General Andrew Horn, jr., revealed today. "Practically all proposed improvements and changes in material are Included In approved projects which are cither under way or are suspended due to lack oC funds," Hero said. "An attempt has been marie, to o.i- tabllsh a reasonable program for antiaircraft defense and csl (males have been made to this end. The funds for the accomplishment, of these propects have been lacking. "The situation in oversells garrisons la somewhat better than In the con- tlnenctal United States. It Is hoped to have the lire control Installations for the. 10-Inch batteries on the Pacific, side of the I'anaina canal completed with money now in prospect. In Hawaii the installations for 10-Inch rides will not, be completed for some years on thi! basis of present appropriations. "ThR condition of material in harbor defenses, especially tire control installations, has shown no marked improvement, over (lie conditions to which I invited attention In my last, report. This equipment continues to evidence, a. progressive reterlonition due to lack of sufficient personal and funds to exercise, test, maintain and repair It. "For the fiscal year 1921, funds for the partial rehabilitation of this material are In prospect but only nt the expense of new construction which is urgently needed for completion of new IG-lnch batteries."

A1TEL, .Secretary of Health, Pennnylvanln. j^r-i-iWO weeks ago, as everyone JL knows, the greatest break In its history occurred on the New York Stock exchange. Then it was that literally thousands of men and women, who a few hours before considered themselves rich, woke up sadly to tho fact that they were bankrupt. Playing the barket. 'on the margin,' they found themselves unable to meet their loans when the test came, and ruin followed. Money and health arc exactly alike In this respect," said Dr. Theodore B. Appel, secretary of health of Pennsylvania, today. "Bad as the situation was, there Is an inconceivably worse one in tho United States today. Where there were thousands manipulating tho money market on margin, there are tens of thousands playing the health market in like fashion. The end results of course will not be as spectacular us was the stock market crash inasmuch as physical bankruptcies do not occur Hlmull.ancously. They are continuous performance affairs, crippling Individuals here, killing others there. But the situation is none the less pathetic or devastating for that fact. "A large number of people, wise In their own conceit, Including the young, middle aged and even older ones, Homehow conclude that they can play health on tho margin and win. But it can not bo done. "Tho person who habitually robs himself of adequate sleep, a proper amount of fresh air, sufficient exercise and becomes a marginal player through late hours und exhausting and enervating habits, IIHH a day of inevitable reckoning If he persits in Ills folly. And It is likely to hit him out of a clear sky. v "True, hospital fees, undertakers' accounts and even doctors' bills are enlarged by such practices, but that IH little consolation to tho fellow who has played tho health game 'on margin' and has lost. "Just remember that health has its llxed and sensible rules. It may be purchased by proper living and judicious care. And it. can bo suddenly lost by opposite treatment. "Are you playing tho health market on margin? What do you expect to get out of It? Better play safe by investing in proper living, which Is the only type of health (Innnco that pays. Life In sweet. Don't kill it 'by •margin playing'." RTCKKH KKr.ATIVKS 1IEIIE. A telegram has been reclevcd at tho police station from R. A.

MUCH REFORESTATION; 34 STATES GIVE TREES WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 12.— The forest service of the agriculture department announced that 68,505,291 trees were furnished by thirty-four states, Hawaii and Porto Rico last year for re-stocking farm timberlands. Coincident with tho department's announcement, George Pratt, president of tho American Forestry association, long a leader in the cause of forest preservation, called at the Whlto House to urge increased appropriations of $2,500,000 for forest fire- fighting purposes. Pratt told President Hoover much of last year's $3,000,000 damage to the country's forests could have been averted had there been adequate funds with which to combat fire. Only $100,000 annually now Is available, he pointed out. Most of the trees were furnished farmers at cost, the agriculture department said in its announcement, although several states distributed nursery stock free. New York and Pennsylvania led the thirty-four states, each distributing more than 9,000,000 trees. NEW SCIENCE VISTAS SEEN BY FARM LEADER CHICAGO, Nov. 12. — Science is opening up vast new fields to industry which /nay In the future give mankind a measure of control over the forces of nature now only dreamed of, Dr. A. F. Woods, director of the agriculture department's scientific work, said today in an address before the Association of Land Grant Colleges and Universities. "A constant, deepening and refining of knowledge of energy relations is giving us a new heaven and a new earth, with possibilities of creative control only dimly realized by poets, philosophers and scientists," he said. Need of research Into the detailed workings of chemical processes and products involved in the living tissue of plants, as emphasized by Dr. Woods, who said scientists under his direction are now concentrating on proteins and fats, colrophyll, and other vegetable products. Expansion of research in pure scl- •ence on a scale comparable to the development of applied science in recent years was urged by Dr. Woods. SEEKS EAKINS' SISTER. A communication was received at police headquarters today from Elmer W. Roller of Milwaukee, Wls., in which he seeks to locate a sister of James M. Eakins who died in that city some time ago. She is presumed to be living in Altoona and is the only heir to Bakins who left a small estate. RADIO ALTOONA RADIO & ELEC. CO. 131(1 12th Avo. Dial'0318 It Pays To Visit .

Save your engine tomorrow by changing to Mobiloil Arctic today/ Your engine deserves this simple winter care! From 10 to 60 Watts Inc. 20c Each Altoona Electric Supply Co. A BOOSTER bTOUK 1120 Twelfth Ave. 1 The best engine in the world, plus the finest battery, can't overcome the effects of an incorrect winter oil that is stiff from cold. When you start your engine, the battery strains —lubrication lags. Just changing to a winter oil is not enough. Many so-called winter oils may give easy starting, but they are too thin to lubricate hot metal surfaces in operation. By changing to the new Mobiloil Arctic, these difficulties can be avoided. First, it flows freely at zero and below. This guarantees the quick, easy starting that saves your battery. And secondly, at high running temperatures, it gives your engine rich lubrication. This double range character is unique among winter oils — there is no other oil like Mobiloil Arctic. That's why the first touch of cold weather means "change to Mobiloil Arctic" for millions of experienced motorists in all parts of the world. Any Mobiloil dealer can supply you with Mobiloil Arctic, New Ease in Gear Shifting Further fortify your engine against the wear and strain of the cold winter months ahead by having your transmission and differential drained and refilled with the new Mobiloil "CW". It remains fluid in the coldest weather and clings tenaciously to each gear tooth. This lightens the engine load and makes gear shifting easy.

More than ten British, American and French teams from Peiping, Shanghai nd Tientsin brought the polo season o a glorious conclusion with a grand ournament here. Polo is a rich man's game in the 'est, but in Peiping a pony Is worth 50, and a Chinese groom gets $10 a month, so that an ordinary salaried man can afford to play, with his own string" of ponies. The tournament vas held within sight of the Tartar walls, built by the Mongols who rought polo into China in 600 A. D. SCABLET LIFEBOAT SAILS.

FM> Trouble* due to Acid INDIGESTION ACID STOMACH —^ Pain Comes Two hours after eating What many people call indigestion very often means excess acid in the stomach. The stomach nerves have been over-stimulated, and food sours. The corrective is an alkali, which neutralizes acids instantly. And the best alkali known to medical science is Phillips' Milk of Magnesia. It has remained the standard with physicians in the 60 years-since its'invention. One spoonful of this harmless, tasteless alkali in water will neutralize Instantly many times as much acid, and the symptoms disappear at once, You will never use crude methods when once you learn the efficiency of this. Go get a small bottle to try. Be sure to get the genuine Phillips* Milk of Magnesia prescribed by physicians for 60 years in correcting excesi acids. 26o and 60o a bottle—any; drugstore. "Milk of Magnesia" has been the U. S. Registered Trade Mark of The Charles H. Phillips Chemical Company; and its predecessor Charles H.
