Monday Evening, May 20, 195T. Carbon Dioxide Dangerous In Air Conditioning Cars By 0BLOS SMITH United Press Science Editor NEW YORK (UP)—A growing American custom of "air conditioning" the family sedan on hot summer days with cooling "dry ice" may be the unsuspected cause of many accidents and should be itopped. This warning comes from chemists who are amazed by the public's lack of respect for carbon dioxide, which is a gas. Solidified carbon dioxide is "dry ice" or carbon dioxide "snow." When solidified, carbon dioxide slowly . returns to gaseous form and if enough of the gas accumulates in a closed space in which there are people, it win first "intoxicate" the people and then kill them. An extreme case built out of a jeries of coincidences has been reported to medical sources by a Missouri doctor. The patient of Dr. A. L. Walter of Sedalia loaded 50 gallons of ice cream packed in cartons with 100 pounds of solidified carbondioxide into the back compartment of his sedan. It was a cold day.

John Duncan, personnel director, made the presentation of the gifts on behalf of the donors. The White County Hospital Auxiliary will meet at the REMC building Tuesday afternoon at. 2 o'clock.

Others were Gilbert Walker, Lafayette, Herbert Kellogg, Rochester, Donald Jennings, of Decatur county. Larry Snowberger, ten year old son of Mr. .and Mrs. Harry Snowberger, who had" the misfortune Saturday to break his left below the hip, submitted to surgery Thursday morning at White Coun ty Memorial Hospital. Two silver screws were placed in the bone and pins were also used to set the break. .Larry is getting along satisfactorily following surgery and will be in the hospital for ten days. 'The pins in his broken leg will be removed after 100 days. He will observe his aith birthday May 25th.

A delicious luncheon was enjoyed and Mrs. Grandidier was turned- getting bitten in the shoulder, the dog's teeth breaking the skin. Sheriff Charles Miller who investigated, said the dog appeared to be a mixture between a boxer and dalmation. The dog was kill- windows were closed and the car's ^"and the' head sent in To the heater was going. Fifteen minutes the cargo, the man or eight blocks farther, then cried out that he couldn't breathe, steered to the curb, and collapsed over the steering wheel. The mother went for- Dr. Walter, fortunately leaving the door open. Walter arrived in 10 minutes and found the man fully recovered and insisting he was all right. The man drove the solidified carbon-dioxide ice cream laden car eight blocks farther to his home where Walter examined him more thoroughly and found nothing amiss. Meanwhile, the car was at the curb, all windows shut and the carbon dioxide still changing from a solid to a gas. After half an hour, the mother drove off in the car. .After eight blocks she began lo yawn and then lost consciousness and the car ran off the road. She was taken to a hospital and x policeman got into th e car. He noticed that when he started the engine and the heater bfegan functioning, the car filled at once with a vapor. In reporting the near - tragedy, Walter raised the question of how •many automobile accidents have been caused, all unknowing, by the "side effects of carbon dioxide intoxication." People who cool cars with solidified carbon dioxide keep all the windows closed, he pointed out. Standard authorities hold that a closed atmosphere containing as little as 10 per cent carbon dioxide can make people unconscious, and a higher concentration will produce death by suffocation. shots, taking the first one Monday. also a tetanus shot.

Economy Bloc May Ask Broadcast Tirne CHICAGO (UP) — Opponents of the administration's record peace time budget met here .today and indicated they will seek equal radio and television time to re- Defense Cut Is in Making WASHINGTON (UPl—The congressional drive to cut President Eisenhower's budget takes a giant step forward this week. A House appropriations subcommittee is expected to recommend slicing $2,500,000,000 from the President's $36,200,000,000 defense request. Subcommittee Chairman George H. Mahon (D-Tex.) said his group will recommend defense cuts Tuesday which are "in th epublic interest." , "The people have demanded more economy and more efficiency in all branches of the government," he said. But in making the cuts, he added, "we have sought not to cut the fighting edge of our forces." Mahon, appearing Sunday on a television program filmed for New York stations, did not specify the size of cuts the subcommittee will make. Bui subcommittee sources have said the reductions will amount to about $2,500,OOQ,000 — by far the biggest single slash in the President's budget to date — despite a | warning from Eisenhower that the nation faces "terrible consequences" if his defense budget is "materially" reduced. Eisenhower Tuesday night will make his second radio - television defense of his budget. He will try to rally public support behind his record $71,800,000,000 peacetime budget in general and his foreign aid program in particular. LOGANSPORT PUBLIC LIBRARY Logansport, Indiana.
