So instead reason. Ihe player hits keys the same color as the music and out comes melody. The whole thing started when Beck, Carl Trlmm and James D. Rippy bought 350 surplus two-engine bombers. iWith all that wood and metal on their hands, they were at a loss— although the bargain was too good to pass up. First off they made a few trailers and turned a profit on them. But full-time trailer manufacturing was out. They had only a small plant, with neither the room nor the workers to turn out qtlanities of trailers. There''were' miles and" "miles of aluminum tubing and thousands oi square yards of mahogany veering in their planes, so Beck went to work. Being a marimba—or xylophone- hobbyist, Deck fiddled around mid finally hit on an idea, he took some of the surplus tubing and made a xylophone. Then -he colored the bars nnd worked up the music in the rioting there. District Judge Willard H Benton issued s temporary order restraining the union from mass picketing R t the Cudahy plant. The injunctions were issued as union representatives and officials of swift and Co. and Armour and Co. prepared to meet, next week with federal mediators in an effort to settle the strike. Wilson and Co. asked conciliators 16 call off the meetings on grounds that they would only give the union a pretext "of prolong- 1 ing the strike." Cudahy officials have not snid whether they would attend. Moon Stopover wn Trips to Mars CHICAGO (UP)—The president of the U. a.
