RAIL SPLITTER By WILLIAM BIHD. (Special Cable to AHoona Mirror and N. Y. Sun.) ROME, June 7.—Rightly or wrongly, there exists In Italy today a deep- seated and sincere feeling that France, through jealousy or fear, has placed herself athwart Italy's path and is determined to block this country's march toward political and economic greatness. This feeling has bred so great a resentment toward France that even the anti-fascists share it and join in applauding when Mussolini shakes his tlst in France's direction. However silent opposition may exist on internal affairs, the government enjoys pra_c- tically unanimous support on its foreign policy. This observer does not desire to ex- •>rcss an opinion as to whether Italian resentment toward France is justified, But it will help to understatnd the existing Franco-Italian tension if Italy's grievances are summarized. Italy Saved France. First of all, the Italians believe that Italy's joining in the World war saved France from defeat, and that the latter, instead of showing gratitude, tricked Italy out of a proper share of colonies at Versailles. Second, France refuses to allow the Italians to colonize in Tunis and retain Italian nationality. Third, France refuses to grant a just rectification of the Tripoli frontier. Fourth, France compels or persuades Italians working In France to become naturalized, thus reducing Italy's man- France harbors and encour- power. Fifth, _ n~cs Italian anti-fascist refugees, permitting them to carry on their plotting, and propaganda against the and aids regime. Sixth. France encourages find Jugo-Slavla in hostile preparations against Italy, even to the extent of helping the Jugo-Slavs establish military air fields, which it declares are useless except for war against Italy. Concrete Orlevunces. The foregoing are Italy's concrete grievances. There Is also the general complaint that French diplomacy in all the European capitals is constantly forming alliances against Italy. Nevertheless, it is difficult to anyone here who really believes there Is clangor of war, at least in the near future. Genuine surprise Is expressed here tliat the duce's recent speeches should have been Interpreted belligerently. The Italians regards them rather as nn expression of just indignation and nn assertion of Italy's right to consld.- ci'Htion as a first class power. It Is pointed out further that Foreign Minister Grandl and Italian diplomacy generally have acted with the utmost moderation and that, beneath the surface appearances of unfriendll- no.-is. Negotiations are proceeding with Franco and other powers which if is confidently hoped will lead to mutually satisfactory settlements of out- .sliinding differences.

OZARK VETERAN AGED 119 YEARS (By NBA Service.) POPLAR BLUFF, Mo., May 7.—A census enumerator had Just finished questioning Mrs. Amanda Rudlclle on her farm five miles north of here. As he" prepared to leave, he casually asked her: "And there aren't any other members of your family living?" "Oh, yes," said Mrs. Rudiclle. "There's father." "And how old is he?* asked the enumerator. "He'll be 119 In September," saW Mrs. Rudicllo. So it happened that the existence here of one of the oldest citizens of the United States, if not the very oldest, was disclosed. Mrs. Rudiclle's father, Thomas Kemp, waa born Sept. 10, 1811,' in Tennessee. He is still strong and active, walking five miles to town and the five miles back every day or so. He splits a good deal of wood and does various other farm chores to keep lit. He drinks "a little liquor" when he is assured that he is getting "good stuff." chews tobacco and eats what he pleases. "I just live a normal life," he explains. "I walk plenty, sleep'late and eat and drink what I please. I see no harm in coffee, tobacco and good MEN DRESSED BY MANYJOUNTRIES Those of United States and England Wear the Products of Some Twenty Forei&n Countries. WASHINGTON, D. C., June 7.— What will the well-dressed business man wear this summer? London and New York haberdashers have their own answer to that question; geography predicts he will wear the products, of twenty foreign countries, more or less,. ' "If bright national labels were pasted on the pieces of 'masculine wearing apparel wholly or partly for foreign origin, the well-dressed business man-would look like a trunk returned from a world tour of the best hotels," says a bulletin of the National Geographic society from its headquarters in Washington, D. C. "From top to toe this American, attired for the street, is a walking economic league of nations. "He may declare that his hat came from Danbury, Connecticut, his shirt and collar from Troy, New York, his necktie from Paterson, New Jersey, his coat and trousers from a local tailor, his fountain pen from Chicago, his money from a U. S. mint, and his shoes from Massachusetts; but that isn't half of It. "Take his hat, for example. It may have been made in Italy, Ecuador or the Philippines. If It was made in the United States, the straw probably came from abroad, from Switzerland, Italy, China or Japan. In one recent year the United States imported 360,000 miles of braided straw for hats. "The leather sweatband probably came from a New Zealand sheep; the filmy gauze of cotton net under the crown from England. "His collar, a trim, gleaming collar that resists wilting, probably owes much of its stability to long staple cotton from Egypt. The United States, the greatest cotton exporting country of the world, imported 34,000,000 pounds of long staple cotton from the land of the Pharaohs in one recent year. Extra fine shirts also have in their weaves long staple cotton, possibly grown in Arizona or among the the Carolinas, Georgia or in the British West lowlands of and Florida, ladles, but more probably In Egypt. ' "The silk of the necktie comes from Japan, of course; but if it Is one of the cheap variety, sort of stiff, the kind that looks fine the first time it is tied, bad the second, terrible the third, then it is probably loaded with tin from Singapore. Airplane Dives Into Harbor The battered air liner Nokomls In which one passenger was killed and fourteen others Injured In a plunge Into Boston harbor, Is shown here as salvagers attempted to retrieve It from the water soon after the accident. The ship dove Into the bay from a height of only 75 feet, shortly after taking off for New York, when one of Its motors went dead. Hundreds witnessed the fatal crash and saw the occupants flght frantically to escape from the cabin of the partially submerged craft. TELETYPE WEATHER FOR PENNA. AIRMEN ' (Special to AHoona Mirror.) WASHINGTON, D. C., June 7.— Expansion of the teletype weather service to give further safety to airmen flying Pennsylvania air routes is planned by the airways division of the department of commerce, Clarence M. Young, assistant secretary in charge of aeronautics said today. This teletype device enables pilots arriving at AHoona to receive hourly "weather data from scores of points along the route he is flying. Pennsylvania cities where the weather bureau and the airways division now cooperate in furnishing teletype information are Northampton, Park Place, Numidia, Sunbury, Winkle- bleck, Bellefonte, Kylertown, Greenwood, Brookvllle and Mercer. The teletype is an automatic printer operated by telegraph. It types at the "His coat, his light summer coat of | rate of £ orty words a minute all avail- mohair, is Turkey's and India's and , able wea ther information on the route Ecuador's gift to America.

"Vegetable ivory is another name for tagua nut. The tree on which it grows is a variety of palm with the curious habit of growing along the ground for about 20 feet and then sending up a spray of leaves about 6 feet high. The seeds of this palm are nuts, probably the hardest nuts to crack in the world. They are so hard that 23' million pounds of them are shipped to the United States annually to be cut and carved into buttons. valuable to transport, passenger, airmail and all types of pilots, the department says. By. the end of the fiscal year next month, Mr. Young, said today, the department expects to have installed 5,650 miles of teletype service, "The service is to be extended next fiscal year," he added, "to include about 8,000 miles of teletype. The circuits are laid out on a long,-line basis to provide, communications • between the weather-rep6r.ting and radio stations on the route." , Detailed information covering a .distance of 200 miles from each 'station "Bright fasteners, whose polished I can be given by this .system, he said.

Mr. Kemp uses a cane when he walks —not because of old age, but because a buggy overturned with him, ninety- eight years ago, when he was calling on a girl, and broke his hip. The 08- year-old fracture stiffens up now and then, and makes a cane necessary. "I still have my axe and chopping blocks here," he says, "and that let's mo do some rail splitting and wood chopping almost every day. Without that exercise I'd get old and stiff. Between times I limber up by walking to town and back when Amanda wants something from the store." PROPOSE TO SEPARATE COLLEGE AND SEMINARY WASHINGTON, D. C., June 7.— Decayed teeth that always hold quantl- lio.s of decayed food materials, swollen, red gums, stained teeth, uncleaned mouths, according to the United States public health service, all afford excellent breeding places for germs and many of the diseases of childhood are • ontracted because of such condi- linns.

The seminary and college have existed as one institution under the name of Augustana College and Theological seminary for seventy years. The institution was founded in Chicago, simultaneously with the organization of the Augustana synod, in 1860. It - vi y.

It is often asked, When should a t child first be taken to the dentist? By all means ho should be taken by the time he Is three years of age, and at least every six months thereafter. The temporary teeth should be cleansed by the dentist at least twice a year, and all cavities should be filled 'just as soon as they appear. This is not painful unless the cavities are allowed to become large. All stains should be removed, because underneath llii-de stains are plaques of germs which destroy the enamel. The fillings may be cither of amalgam, or, what Is probably preferable, of copper cement, which is plastic and easily inserted. In case a tooth is lost prematurely through accident or disease, Ilii! space should be retained by a .simple appliance to hold the adjacent teeth apart. This is an age of prevention—and era that emphasizes the Importance of taking every means to prevent disease before it occurs. The early visits to the dentist when, possibly, nothing is to be done but cleaning and giving advise as to the use of Iho tooth brush or a small filling 01 two, will have a salutary effect upon the child. ilu will look upon I he dentist as his friend instead of sume one to feur. und lie will soon h'iirii to take pride in the appearance of his mouth and teeth.

It Is the largest of seven educational institutions controlled by the synod and its constituent conferences. Proposal to separate the college and theological seminary came before the synodleal council in the form of a petition from the Kansas conference. Dr. G. A.

ACTION IS TAKEN BY PARDON BOARD (By .United Press.) HARRISBURG, June 6.—Thirteen applications for pardons were granted and thirty-seven refused by the state pardon board from the list considered at Us May hearings.' Seven other cases were held, under advisement and four, withdrawn. The board granted. three pardons and refused one from previous lists.

C., June 7.— Boquete, where Rear Admiral Byrd went for rest, relaxation and a cool breeze, Is the Bagulo and the Simla of Panama, a health station In the hills. Boquete, 4,000 feet high up In the mountains, Is like a kite at the end of a 32-mile • narrow gauge rail line that strechea up from the poyt of Pedregal," says a bulletin from the Washington, D. C. headquarters of the National Georgraphlc society, "and it helps to give Chirlque province the enviable title, 'Panama's sanatorium.' "To reach David, capital of Chiriqul, from which point they rode the 'Ferro- carrll Nacional de Chtrlqui,' up to Boquete, Rear Admiral Byrd and his party flew two hours west and a trifle south from Panama City. Chiriqul is the westernmost province of Panama, and, although only 200 miles distant as the crow flies, is two days distant by coasting steamer. "Once arrived at lofty Boquete, the explorer found himself in the good hands of compatriots, for the chief hotel which has the whole Rio David valley for a front yard and limitless Pacific ocean for a view, is run by Americans. "After leaving the canal zone a plane bound for David flies, over board areas of impenetrable tropic forest with jungle so thick that no attempt has yet been made to link David by rail through the overgrown ravines and spurs to. Panama City. But nearing David the forest clears In spots, for Chiriqul province is the richest agricultural region of Panama. Plateaus that rise in terraces from the seashore to the high peaks supply different climates at different altitudes with the result that rubber may grow on one terrace, tobacco on the next higher and coffee farther up the foothills. Rich, volcano fertilized soil at every lever guarantees luxuriant growth. In the higher altitudes, up in Boquete's zone, everything raised in temperate zone regions, such as the United States, can be grown. "Immigrants, especially foreigners, have recognized Chiriqui's opportunities and are swiftly developing farms and industries. Their .enterprise has already made isolated David the third most ihiportant city of Panama. "Riding behind the oil-burning, toy locomotive puffing on the steep grades from David to Boquete, the traveler looks out on. an alluring countryside where plantations alternate with ;forests. Giant trees rising a hundred feet or more blaze with scarlet orchids or their branches may be garlanded with, mauve, yellow or white blossoms, of tropical vines. In the dense oak forests of the highlands lives the brilliant colored Quetzal, the bird that was sacred to the Aztecs and that is the national bird of Guatemala. .

But the state department recognizes the likelihood that the refusal will strike fire from some senators. "I am still aware," Stimson's statement said, "that some of the opponents of the treaty are likely to say that these confidential papers are being kept confidential in order to cover up some secret understanding, or some mistake or Indiscretion of the American delegates. That is nonsense. There were no such agreements or understandings." Two precedents were cited for the refusal. In 1796 President Washington replied to a house resolution that It would be impolitic to disclose all phases of diplomatic negotiations. In 1922 President Harding refused to give the senate a complete record of exchanges relating to the Pacific treaty between the United States, Great Britain, France and Japan. Both Johnson and Borah are of the opinion the senate, as Jointly responsible for treaties, is entitled to complete information regarding their negotiations. "To deny one partner in the treaty making process," Johnson said before Stimson's reply was issued "access to a knowledge of that which in the first instance induced the negotiation of a completed document, is to abrogate the Constitution itself. "The senate must have all information, all documents and papers of every sort upon which a treaty is based, that Its action may be intelligent and its duty performed with wisdom." "It was just such a request from Johnson that Mr. Hoover rejected. The senator asked for "all letters, papers documents, telegrams, dis- j -pairi patches and communications of every i "R** sort leading up to or relating to the j p J> T fl •CJ g London conference and London I _ treaty." was useless.

The Zeppelln'a tour clarified many problems of transoceanic flying which ireviously had been unsolved, Dr. Eckener aaid, and the technical questions dealing with the feasibility of such a. service were answered satisfactorily. Hence, from a technical standpoint, commercial routes could b» opened at once. The Graf Zeppelin returned to it* home field at 7.25 p. m. (1.25 p. m., B. S. T.,) yesterday, after an absence of 19 days. It had covered 18,000 mlle» and had flown over three continents since rising from the Friedrichshafen field at 5.18 p. m. May 18, and added two new accomplishments to its past achievements. One of those accomplishments was the fjight across the south Atlantic, which previously had been crossed only by airplanes. The route the Zeppelin followed, however, from Cadiz, to Penambuco, Brazil — had neve* been used even by an airplane. , The second accomrilishment was th* non-stop flight from Pernambuco tft» Lakehurst, N. J., through uncharte* air routes of the Caribean sea. Th«£ only previous attempt to use that rout% was by Paul Redfern, American avia-« 'tor, who disappeared after taking" off* from Brunswick, Ga., with Brazil hi* destination. On both flights, Dr. Eckener mad» observations with a view to establishment of future commercial routes.
