. MONDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1940 BLYTHEVTM-E (AftK.) COURIER NEWS 4 Airlines Seek Midwest Routes Bids for Missi PAGE FfVE Orphan Travels With Circus and Plans To Be a Performer When She Grows Up isjippi Valley Service Port Of Lengthy Hearing WASHINGTON, Oct. 17. CAP) — A trunk line carrier, two feeder airlines and a bus company will put In their bids this week for mldwcstern feeder air service routes once awarded Parks Air Line; Ozark Air Lines, a feeder company of Springfield, Mo., presses its case today. Laddie Hamilton, its president, explains at a Civil Aeronautics Board examiner's hearing why Ozark figures It snould be certified for all of Parks' 4,003-mile system. Ozark, which began Its testimony Friday, probably will finish today I as the CAB's Pa,rks investigation ease enters its fourth week After Ozark will come Branlff Airways, a Dallas trunkline; Turner Airlines, an Indianapolis feeder line, and Southern Bus Company of Alexandria, La. Six airlines already live presented their cases for all or prts of the Parks system. Parks Failed (o Start Several years ago the CAB certified this system to Parks Air Line of East St. Louis, 111., in three area award cases. They were the North Central, Great Lakes and Mississippi Valley Area cases. Routes In these csea totaled 4,003 miles, touched 71 cities in 11 midwestern states stretching from Minneapolis to Tulsa and from Kansas city and Sioux City, la. to Chicago,' Indianapolis and Memphis. Parks was never able to start operations. (Routes Involved In the Mississippi Valley Area ease include those which at first appeared likely to bring air service to Blythe- Tllle. However, Parks and other lines to date ha^e failed to designate Blytheville as a terminal along the St. Louis-Memphis . route. The principal argument appears to be that Blytheville Is loo close to Memphis.) The current nearing Is,to determine whether the board (1) will continue or revoke Parks' certifications, (2) will approve a proposed acquisition of Parks by mld-conti- „ nent airline o! Kansas city, or (3) £ will make new route aw r ards to Mid-Continent or other carriers. Also Asks Merger Paries told the board three weeks «go it now U ready to fly the routes with single-engine planes. It' urged, however, that the board approve the Consolidation with Mid-Continent. This line also prefers the merger, although it has made applications as an independent carrier for all of Parks' routes. Parks, Mid - Continent, Ozark Chicago and Southern and Centra] Airlines of Oklahoma City have applied for all the routes. Continental of Denver and Branif] want the Mississippi Valley Route Wisconsin Central of MadUon wants the North Central. Turner applied for the North Central and Great Lakes routes, while Southern Bus bid for the Great Lakes and Mississippi Valley routes. The hearing is expected to close this week. It probably will be several months before the board makes a ruling after studying the examiner's recommendation, briefs and listening to final oral arguments.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 17. llPt— The conviction of H national Communist leaders in New York stirred demands In congress today for state v\ntl local crackdowns, backed by laws to root Communists out if they go underground. ' Hep.

Party officials have disclaimed any such Intention. Capitol Hill greeted the New York jury's verdict with almost unanimous acclaim, although Rep. Mar- umtonfo (ALP-N-Y) called it a blow to "the basic? American 'right "ot free political opintion and free political association." Most members of trie House and Senate declared the decision should establish to everyone's satisfaction that the communist; party's purpose is the overthrow oi the government by violence. Some saw In the jury's action a signal for a national drive to wipe out all "subversive" elements in the country. NEW YOHIC-W)—Are you sleeping your hair away? Well. H you're getting bald, the chances arc—soys Angelo Mantcllo —that the way you sleep has a lot to-do with It. Mantello Is a middle-aged barber from Wilson, Conn., who spent four decades listening to customers grouse about their hair falling out. Ann after 40 years of pondering, lie's come up with what he thinks is thn cause of baldness. "Such factors as heredity, nervousness and diet have no direct bearing on It." he said. "Baldness ••esults from Improper sleeping position. "Sleeping on the side and burying the forehead In the pillow causes baldness at the temples. Sleeping on the back causes the crown of the. head to become bald." What's H thinning-nailed man to do then—sleep standing up like a horse? "Not necessary," said Mantello. "Just correct your sleeping habits Ciet a smaller pillow that won't wrap around your ears—a pillow you won't push up against the end of the bed with the crown of your head. "And don't sleep with your heat! on your arms. Wherever your hand or your arm 01 your pillow hits, you hnve no hair—In time." Mantellc looked critically at my own forehead, which has receded almost to the rear neck cuff, "There Is absolutely no reasor for anybody to geb bald," he said sternly. "It's so simple. People fry to make hair grow like spaghetti or macaroni — by pressure. But yoi can't make hair grow that way an; more than you can grass. "Hair treatments that apply hea nnd massage are double robbery- can readily be-.plucked. The same thing happens to the hair when It is subjected to'artificial Interns heat." Mantcllo said another factor causing baldness was "shower erosion." "Always wet your hair. Keep It " moist. But wear a bathing cap In the shower. "Water Is the best possible thins you can use on your it moist—but it dries Sen. Vandenberg Leaves Hospital after Surgery ANN ARBOR, Midi, Oct. 17. (;!=) — Senator Arthur H.

"Well since women started cutting their hair shorter, more of it does fall out," he said. "But one reason they don't get as bald as men Is that they wear their hair longer, and that helps scalp moist," And how do you cure baldness?
