GENERAL DUAL to does just that. We're ready to prov* by actual demonstration thai the dangerous skid swerve has been eliminated. * With the mounting toll of skidding accidents isn't it worth, your time and money to investigate a tire so new in design that it ends the perilous skid swerve that costs so much today? When you look at the new Dual 10 tread you wonder why this unusual design has such amazing traction. Here's what happens. When you apply the brakes those magic ribbons of rubber squirm into a squeegee action that wipes the surface clean and dry and provides constant, unyielding traction. Because this flexible tread offers so litde resistance to the road it wears more slowly than conventional designs. There is no cupping--the wear is slow and even. The exclusive features of General's patented low pressure construction have all been retained in the Dual 10.

DUflllO MULLIGAN SON LET US DEMONSTRATE THIS NEW "DUAL 10" GENERAL TO YOU PHONE 2050 1 13 WEST STATE Knowledge of Worms Valuable Experiments Show They Respond to Light. A byproduct of the work of entomologists, who are fighting pests and encouraging their enemies is knowledge of earthworms that will help fishermen collect bait more efficiently. The worms, although sensitive to most light, ar» apparently insensitive to red light. Flashing an ordinary light on the worms as they emerge from their burrows causes them to retreat quickly. They also slide; back into their holes when a blue light is flashed oa them, says W. R. Walton of the bureau of entomology and plant quarantine, United States department of agriculture. But if the flashlight has a red glass or if the ordinary glass: is covered with red paper tlie worms pay no attention, to the light. The worms do not have eyes and their sensitiveness to light appears to be greatest in the forward parts of their bodies. Fishermen, find that if the soil around the worms' burrows is sprinkled thoroughly with a garden hose before sundown, they will usually come to the surface after dark--provided it is not windy and the temperature does not fall much below 40 degrees F. A common beEef is that worms are forced to leave their burrows to avoid drowning when the ground is wet by heavy rains or sprinkling with a hose. The kind of worm sought by- most fishermen for bait is generally known as the nigt- crawler. It is also known as the angleworm, dewworm, fish- worm, and rainworm. When fully extended while crawling it may measure ten inches or more. Co-Op Experiment Farm Is Launched by Sherwood Eddy HHiHOUSE, (UP)--A 2,108 acre cotton, co-operative experiment; a lo n g lines of those instituted by the noted Gagawa. in Japan, is being launched near here by Sherwood Eddy, author-lecturer ana other social leaders.
