THE HONOLULU ADVERTISER. SATURDAY MORNING, AUGUST 22, 1936. THREE O l o lb rat rial Order to Open Island Goiwentio ft Beach Business Zone Extension Goes to Board Citv Plans Commission Approves Aid to Hotel Sites Petitions of Waikikl property owners for an extension of the z ne in which business establishments may be operated were ap proved by the city planning com mission at their last meeting, it v-as announced yesterday. The approval practically doubles fie depth of the zone mauka of Kalakaua avenue, extending it to -a-ithin 10 ee tie private roadway maintained by the property owners. The extended zone reaches from a few feet ewa of Lewers real to Seaside avenue. The matter will now go to the board of supervisors for final action. """The request for widening of the business district in that region was inspired by negotiations under way for some time for sites on which to build one or more apartment hotels. Should these new developments materialize it is anticipated that the buildings will have shop space on the ground floor, which under the present zoning ordinance would be in violation of regulations.

The tour was the second Char has conducted from here. (Advertiser photo.) Her Jingles Sell Sprinklers Faster Than Salesmen Can Florence H. Russill clinches more business through her jingles and interesting letters for a Los Angeles sprinkler firm than most people can accomplish in a sales talk. It all started through her love for writing letters and jingles, f-"--'' w"-mj she explained on I the lanai of the I '..- , : Moana - Seaside j ; , i hotel, and today f i she is head of " the sales promo- f . - v j tion and adver- f'2 , f.:l tising department J t-. ') tlie company. t or the past ' nine years Miss Eussill has done 3Iiss Russill national advertising and includes her original jingles in all of her work. She sells by mail and prefers it to interviewing. Many of her clever say- ings are found in advertising publications. Besides writing jingles about her business and people in the organization, the attractive businesswoman designs letter heads, arranges advertising displays, and writes short stories on the side. The thing that impressed Miss Russill most the first day in Hawaii were the open fish markets near River street . with the many colored fish on display for sale. According to Miss Russill, Hawaii has the next to the largest sales record for sprinkler, in spite of "liquid sunshine." California heads the list, but in comparison of size, the Territory comes first, she says. Visiting with her is Mildred Jones, head of the personnel department of the Shell Oil Refinery at Martinez, Calif. Both are stopping at the Moana. 4-H Club At Laie Elects Officers Bovs Plan to Grow Toma- mf toes, Sweet Potatoes The Laie Boys' 4-H club has started its second year of agricultural activity.

CHAIRMAN FROM OUTSIDE Following the grand delegate's greetings, a convention chairman will be elected preparatory to the annual election of officers of the supreme council of Hawaii. Oahu delegates seem to favor the choosing of one of the delegates from the outside islands to preside over the election. The Rev. E. A. Centeno from Maui, and Ignacio Vjllaluz from the Big Island, are considered the strongest contenders for convention chairman. For the highest position in Hawaii, that of grand delegate, three candidates are favored. It is being predicted, however, that Grand Secretary S. M. Palomares will retain his seat for another term.

Darneron, a Negro, dead. ' Earlier the rescue squads had relayed the word to the surface "we hear their voices." At this news relatives of the prisoners believed all had been found alive. Wives of the dead men collapsed in ' hysteria when they learned the truth. The entrapped men had been barricaded, according to expectations. However, they said they left their dug-out several times in search of water and better air. Darneron and Stoner died while attempting to reach the air shaft. McCann said "I 'died" another death every time the machinery stopped. I feared you had given us up." McCann said Sexton had been unconscious much of the time and was undoubtedly dying when rescued. The men were trapped after they entered the newly reopened mine and set off dynamite blasts. A subsequent fire and crumbled shaft cut off their escape.

Century Tlant 92 Years Too Earlv GREENFIELD, O. (UP) A "century plant," member of the amaryllis family that derives its name from the supposition that its flowers bloom only once in 100 years, bloomed recently at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ellenberger, but was 92 years ahead of schedule. The plant, which has grown to a height of six feet in eight years, bore two white flowers which remained open about six hours. Scientist Trails Elusive Cosmic Rays On Liner Demonstrates El ah orate Apparatus Aboard Pres. Van Buren An earnest young soldier in that small battalion of advanced physicists, led by the world's Einsteins and Millikans who are trying to reveal to mankind the nature of the universe around him, passed through Honolulu yesterday. He is Dr. Victor Neher, "faculty member at the California Institute of Technology and an associate of Dr. Robert Millikan in that famous scientist's researches into the phenomenon of the cosmic ray. Neher was aboard the President Van Buren with his wife en route to India and Australia for advanced study of ray activity in those countries. With him. too, established beneath a sheltering tent on the liner's flying bridge, was a complex battery of instruments for recording the activity of those mysterious emanations from outer space. Although a worldwide survey of cosmic ray phenomena at sea level has already been completed by scientists who have journeyed into all the oceans of the world for that purpose, Ne-her's instrument registers from every angle batwecn the opposite horizons the frequency and intensity of those currents of invisible and perpetual force whose nature is still unknown to science. MAKES RAYS FLY It was an awesome litter of boxed coils and dials. On the top of the heap is a slab of lead an inch thick through which the rays first strike, causing a slow but actual disintegration of the metal. It is this process of disintegration which causes the cosmic sparks to fly into the recording instrument beneath, through which Neher has ascertained that they reach the earth or, in this case, the deck of a liner's bridge with a frequency of 40 per minute. A faint metallic clicking was plainly audible, coming a little less swiftly than the striking seconds of a great clock. That to a group of only vaguely compre hending reporters was the ghostly sound of the rhythm of the universe. Neher will go into the business of observing cosmic rays on a more elaborate scale when he reaches India, he said. There, in addition to ground research, he will send up experimental baloons which he says have already supplied accurate recording of stratospheric ray activity at an altitude of more than 90,000 feet in other parts of the world. India was chosen for Neher's most extensive experiments on this voyage, he said, because science has already discovered that cosmic ray activity is vastly slower there for some mysterious reason, and thus allows greater accuracy in observation. BENEFIT IS GUESSWORK What, if any, benefit mankind will ever derive from the cosmic ray when and if it is harnessed to scientific purposes, Neher said was anybody's guess. The scientist's job at present is to find out what the rays are, not what they will do. It is a case of cause and effect with exclusive emphasis on cause at the present stage of the game. Dr. Neher did venture to repeat a prevalent scientific opinion that the rays have something to do with the formation of those invisible clouds high in the upper air, but what other direct effect they may have upon the world's weather s as yet entirely unknown. Fishermen Get Bait Through Automat NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (U.P.) Fishermen too lazy to dig their own bait need only to go to the "automat" at Herman P. Dou-yard's barber shop, drop in a coin, turn a crank, and a can of worms will pop out. Douyard, who constructed the slot machine, used to dig the worms himself. But so flourish ing was business that he had to hire 10 children to collect the bait FUNERAL NOTICE The body of MRS. MARY YOUNG CHOY, wife of Bung C hu n Choy, will be on view at the Nuuanu Funeral Parlors from 7 P. M. Saturday, Aug. 22, to 2 P. M. Sunday, Aug. 23. Services will be held at the Sacred Heart Church, Puna-hou, at 2:20 P.M. Sunday, Aug. 23. Ray Chaser 5 DR. VICTOR NEHER Governor Shuns Newspaper War Striking Seattle Reporters Publish Own Journal CCnited Press by Radio) SEATTLE, Aug. 21 Gov. Clarence D. Martin announced in a radio speech today he would re fuse to intervene in the dispute between the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, a Hearst paper, and striking editorial employes. Admitting there was little prospect of immediate settlement after Post-Intelligencer executives refused to arbitrate, the American Newspaper Guild announced it was publishing a morning daily "free of propaganda," which the "Guild Striker" had previously carried against William Randolph Hearst. Guild executives said the paper had already reached 25,000 copies circulation, selling for five cents a copy and carrying considerable advertising. Guild members declared a strike last week following the dismissal of two fellow workers from the P-I staff. Hearst cabled from Rome a statement that he had lost a million dollars operating the Post-Intelligencer through the depression. "If Communists want to relieve me of that cost and also the duty of supplying jobs, it is not an unmixed evil," the publisher said. "I will save money. However, a greater issue is at stake a free press and a free country." Guardsman's Body Found; Rites Todav The body of Cpl. Clarence Y. Lum of Ihe Hawaii National Guard, drowned at Kawaihapai Thursday afternoon, was recovered at 5:30 last night by guardsmen who had been searching for the body. According to a report to Wahi-awa police from Captain Chock of the HNG, the body was recovered near the spot where Lum disappeared from sight after calling for help as he became exhausted in the raging surf. The body was taken to Fort Armstrong by army authorities last night. Final rites will be held at the Nuuanu Funeral parlors at 5 p.m. today. ; JIRORS I.E STEREOSCOPE TOLEDO. (UP) Lewis H. Clement, a handwriting expert, had Jurors look, through an old fashioned stereoscope at a' $33 check, to prove that the u-ords, "commission in full," had been written, on the check at the time it was made out, instead of later, as contended by the plaintiff. $215,000 Fund Received Here For WPA Work Allotment Sufficient to Start Program on All Islands Notification that $215,000 in WPA funds had been made available for the new program scheduled to start Mondas' was received at local relief headquarters yesterday by Fred S. Bartlctt, financial administrator from. Washington who leaves Honolulu on the Lurl:ne today. This is the second transfer of the new WPA fund.-;, which will total $1,800,000 for the six months period, $50,000 having been previously received. Of the new allotment $150,000 is for roads and bridges on all island', $50,000 is for clerical workers and othscr white collar emploj-mcnt and $15.,-000 is for sewers and utilities. ; Additional funds that may bring the total up to $000,000 are expected within the next few days, but the allotment already received is considered sufficient to start the programs outlined for all four islands. Final arrangements for the transfer from FERA to WPA administration were completed yesterday and the change will be effected Monday, Bartlett announced.

Then at about three o'clock; Jn the afternoon, the men all gather round and "scratch .t One man recently found a diamond ring valued at $300; another retrieved, a large ruby. ' "Palama district is the best digging," one veteran sewer man disclosed. "We generally pick up quite a lot of pin money from those sewers, since they contain the most dirt. Strangely enough, we seldom find anything but a few stray coins at River street, although it is a busy sewer district." The worker explained that everything from buttons to half dollars can be picked up in "Scratch." "Back in '23 we had a lot of excitement," he reminisced. "It was then that we found a couple of human bodies washed down near King street." Mark Roebuck, foreman of the Ala Moana pumping station, explained that "Scratch" is not an easy pastime, and that many of the men have received bad wounds when they descended into the manholes to retrieve the floats and brushes. "But they still comb the sewers for money and jewels," .he said. "Even if they often get fooled with five-and-ten cent store specimens." -4-. First Aid!
