As a matter of fact, invested grain so treated not only appears to be unharmed but benefited the electrostatic field. It seems to get 'all hopped up,' ready to grow like a million. jfBut the insects we theorize about fcem in this fashion. With the tremendous rapidity with which the polarity of the electrodes is switched, the positive and negative poles of the mole- cules of the insects are shifting, too. IThe energy thus created results in more heat than the insect can radiate. As a . result, insect, pupa, larva and egg t any infestation--is internally cooked, t unlike the plant that is much slower I to develop the heat I "This switch of polarity Is probably the explanation of the 'death rays' we hear about from time to time.

The subjects ranged from experimental work in laboratories to the latest demonstrations of practicable insect-control work in the field. f Now Cantaloupe Butter Topeka, Kan, Nov. 14 (.?-Topeka is tasting something new in cante-loupe butter.

Traffic Rush Downtown Alarm Caused By Over heated Ignition System In Car Half a dozen pieces of fire apparatus answered an alarm at Baltimore and Charles streets during the 9 A. M. rush period today and found that the entire trouble lay in the ignition system of a truck which had become overheated at that point The fire engines choked both Baltimore and Charl-s streets at the intersection, and traffic backed up in all directions. Trolleys and automobiles were in line as far west as Howard street on Baltimore street The truck was driven by William W. Allen, of Centreville. CHRISTMAS SAVINGS FUNDS SHOW GAIN 18 Banks In City Ready To Send Out Checks For Total Of $2,500,000 : Continued From Page 50 for a compilation. Nor were figures available from a multitude of build ing and loan associations, which also operate these funds for the con venience of their members. For the nation as a whole the ag gregate distribution was expected to reach $312,000,000 according to Herbert F. Rawll, of New York, founder and president of Christmas Club, a cor poration. The idea was launched twenty-five years ago. It has been esti mated that in this quarter century approximately $5,000,000,000 of funds have been accumulated through the plan. The average per-member distribution in that period has been around $39. Of this year's total, local disburse ments, $1,762,575 will be made by eleven savings institutions, and $836,- 300 by seven banks and trust companies.

SLEEPS ON ROCK, HAS $2,381,000 CASTLE Death Valley Scotty Likes Desert Which Yielded Him Fortune In Gold IBy the Associated Press The Castle, Death Valley, Cal., Nov. 14 Death Valley Scotty, king of America's most desolate desert, has opened hia $2,381,000 castle again but he shuns its magnificent bedroom to sleep on the desert rocks. "Why should I sleep here?" asks Death Valley Scotty. "When I want a good sleep I just get out the mules and go up in the rocks. That's the place to sleep." He should know after thirty-five years in Death Valley, which yielded him gold enough to satisfy hia every whim. Hand-Carved Bed But look at his bedroom finished In the perfection of an Aladdin's dream. The bed Is hand carved with scenes of Scotty and the desert at the head. The rugs, made in Spain, are an inch thick. His desk, carved by artisans brought from Italy and paid $4 an hour, would fire the envy of a tycoon. There are pictures of Buffalo Bill Cody and P. T. Bamum, draperies which cost enough to build a bunga low and gun racks filled with a price less collection of firearms. Slept "ftiere Once, On Floor Death Valley Scotty never sleeps there.

The cathedral-like music room cost $200,000, with its $14,000 rug, pipe organ and grand piano. Scotty prefers his "shack," a red wood home five miles from the castle. There he likes to cook his own meals, kick off his shoes, pull off his shirt and "relax." "Now ain't this better'n the castle?" he said, as he lounged on a cot, smoking a pipe. "But the real place is up in the rocks." Plants Manufacture Oxygen Part of the earth's oxygen supply is manufactured by growing plants.
