WEDNESDAY, MARCH 8, 1939 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE IETY EVENTS Penny Art Fund Gifts Are Bought Woman's Club Will Have Penny March at Meeting Tuesday Members of the Woman's club will have an opportunity to contribute to the penny art fund of the General Federation of Women's clubs at their meeting Tuesday afternoon at the First Methodist church when Dr. H. C. Link will speak on "The Return to Religion." Mrs. R. B. Irons, member of the art committee of the Iowa Federation of Women's clubs, has charge of the fund in Mason City. Each club member in the Federation is asked to contribute one penny a year toward the fund. The pennies remain within the state and are used for the advancement of art. Forty-six states have adopted the penny art fund plan. Each club treasurer sends the pennies to the art fund chairman and with the pennies, the state art chairman purchases prizes to be presented to the clubs doing the most to raise the standard of art and beauty in the community. The prizes must be works of art by American artists of high reputation who belong to some organized art society. In order to give small clubs an equal chance to get a prize, the clubs are placed in four divisions, .according to membership and no club is eligible unless it adopts the P. A. F. as part of its regular activity. --o--· JEFFERSON P. T. A. BOARD AT MEETING Jefferson P. T. A. board met Tuesday evening at the home oi t h e president.

The trail leads through a labyrinth of ifs, but it is becoming hotter. Dr. Luis W.

However, the Champion hus all the features to be found in the higher priced Studebakers, including planar suspension, non-slam rotary done latches and steering wheel gear shift lever. Mr. Hoffman promised the dealers that the new Champion would be the "safest car in the low priced field" and would give "better ride for less money." Harvey Stowers, special repre- entative of the vice president, outlined the advertising plans for the new Champion. A total of $1,250,000 has been appropriated to ntroduce the new car to the pubic. Of this, $600,000 will be spent n newspapers, the remainder in magazines and in radio.

The public has been invited to the discussion sponsored by the local library in an effort to continue the thought stimulated by the Institute of International Understanding lectures held recently in Mason City. To Discuss Currency Several interesting questions are expected to arise during the discussion. The group will touch on the question of common currency among nations, the weakness of the league of. nations, why democracies are slovy to act, the proposed federation and free trade and the countries which might be included in the federation. Following the round table discussion, the group will listen to the "Town Meeting of the Air" on the radio at 8:30 o'clock in the In breaking down the uranium atom a neutron was shot into it. The speeding neutron caused the 1 relatively large atom to fall apart and to rearrange its components into two other elements. Seek Pyramids of Power The original atom supposedly contained several 'neutrons before being shot, but during the breakup process none of them was observed flying off to become potential death slugs for othci uranium atoms. The immediate problem of th esearchers. Dr. Alvarez said, wa to cause the atom to give up it ailable neutrons in such a way that each would explode othe atoms and thus pyramid the re sultant power. The experimenters expressed the belief that these neutrons eventually would be singled out and put to work. Neutrons are more effective than other sub-atomic particles in exploding atoms because they penetrate more deeply.

When asked what he thought o the new Champion, Mr. Sauerb'er aid, "For the first time in my 2 vears with the Studebaker line, eel that we have a car to interes everyone, regardless of the price he wants to pay." J. W. Fallen, mayor of St. Paul, acting as toastmaster, introduced ?aul D. Hoffman, president of the Studebaker corporation, South Bend, Ind. Mr. Hoffman told the story of the birth of the new car, work on which started in 1934 when it became apparent to the Studebaker corporation that there was a need for a new car in the low-priced field. The Champion is a new car in every sense of the word, according, to the Mason City dealer.

That was in reply to a question as to whether he would cross picket lines to return to his apartment Wednesday night. Senator Carter Glass of Virginia, another Mayflower resident, said he had noticed no interruption in service. .

YOUR FEDERAL INCOME TAX Deductions for business expenses form a large item in the return of many taxpayers and must have certain qualities to be allowed. Such deduction must be for an expenditure in connection with the maintenance and operation of the taxpayer's business or business properties, it must be an ordinary expense and it must be n necessary expense.

Uranium Is Rare In one pound of uranium worth about $1, there are 453.6 grams. Each gram contains three septillion (3,GOO,000,000,000,000,000,000) atoms. If every atom in one gram could be exploded with a discharge of 200,000,000 volts it would produce energy amounting to 10,000,000 kilowatt hours. That much energy looms large beside the 1,400,000 kilowatt capacity of Boulder dam, which cost 5108,800,000, and Grand Coulee dam. which cost $126,000,000 and will have a power capacity of 1,890.000 kilowatts. Uranium is_ relatively rare, but if its potential energy could he efficiently exploited it could give he world virtually unlimited ower, Dr. Alvarez said. Would Supply Power He suggested the atomic energy might manifest itself as heat and be used in that form to produce steam for conversion into electrical energy on conventional power lines. Some scientists believe that exploding atomic energy is the source of power in the sun and other great stars. It is supposed that simple combustion, our regular form of creating heat, would soon destroy the sun at the rate of its measured energy output On the same principle uranium and other similar elements, even though much scarcer than wood, coal and oil, might supply the world's power need indefinitely with little danger of exhaustion.
