PASADENA, Calif., May 17. TO- * A band of water vapor five to 10 miles thick has been discovered ai an attitude of about 40 miles, says Dr. David R. Bates of the University of London. The vapor, swept up from the earth, never lias a chance to return and indicates an escape of moisture from the earth's surace, Dr. Bates told 80 scientists attending an upper-atmosphere symposium at the the California Institute of Tecn- ilology yesterday. Under the. influence of ultra violent rays, the water molecules break up into hydrogen and oxygen, he said. Some 400 miles np, another new atmospheric layer has been found. Dr. Penndorf of the Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratories. Here the atmosphere is so light that no molecules exist, he said. The molecules disintegrate into atoms, Dr. penndorf said, and some presumably escape Into space. Man Donates 70th Pint Ot Blood to Red Cross COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 17.

'•on* Way From Belnj on Tli» Koefci In splto of this public power competition, the private power companies seem to be doing all right for themselves. Figures furnished by P. L.

Preferred stock dividends havi Private power Industry spokesmen admit that no private power company in the -J .iced States has gone bankrupt because of government competition.

When one company sells to another company, that is supposed to be good business and nil right.
