Vo risk involved Go to your druggist for INSTITUE ISSUES BOOK ON RESOURCES OF STATE Contains Interesting Information For School Children of Pennsylvania; Coal Is Most Important Source of Wealth in 'Commonwealth A forward step in the vital matter of conserving our natural resources has been taken in the preparation of an educational handbook of the resources of Pennsylvania. This book, prepared for use in the Pennsylvania schools to carry out the Smithsonian Institution's purpose of the "increase arid diffusion of knowledge among men," presents in novel and striking ways the present situation, causes of waste and how to stop it, and future problems in connection with the conservation of resources. The book, will be placed in practically every school in Pennsylvania, and by including the resource material in the geography course, it will be possible to instill into the minds of the school children, the citizens of to morrow, the necessity of understanding: and conserving the resources provided by Nature. While the present handbook is limited to the State of Pennsylvania, there is a nation wide lesson in it, and such material, brought together and placed in the schools of every state would be of immeasurable benefit to the present and future economic condition of the country. Definite Facts The data presented on the re nnri nf Ppunci'lvania nrft not fl.b cent, of the energy in coal; in neat ness of a conservation program; do pends on enlightened public opinion, and it ia hoped that through this new method of bringing the resource situation as a whole vividly to the attention of both adults and school children, much will be ac "eomplished in the present and even more In the future towards eco nomically utilizing the resources which Nature has so abundantly supplied in this country. It is also hoped that other states will take up this method and apply it to their own problems. The National Museum of the Smithsonian Institution has a division actively engaged in molding public opinion along these lines, and there are installed in its exhibition halls models and other materials designed to instruct and interest the many thousands of visitors in the country's mineral resources. stractions they are definite facts!

Perhaps the most striking illustration given of the value of conservation methods is the matter of coke ovens. "In the beehive ovens, the coal is partly burned and the smoke passes off through an open ing the top of the oven, leaving as the only, residue the coke, in the by product coke ovens, coke of equal quality is produced and the gases evolved from the distillation of the coal are withdrawn and saved. These gases produce coaltar, from which may be derived dyes, perfumes, medicines, preservatives, explosives, and many other valuable chemical products; fertilizer, and gas for public utility purposes, which is only slightly inferior to the ordinary manufactured gas. In the year 19.30, gas was wasted through the use of beehive coke ovens to the extent ofs 120,000,000,000 cubic feet, or four and one half times the entire amount of manufactured gas sold in the State of Pennsylvania. Coal Primary Resource Pennsylvania's primary resource is coal. In this one State is produced 31 per cent, of the country's bituminous and all of the anthracite coal. In the handbook are shown the methods of mining and utilization. The chief sources of waste are In the beehive colce ovens mentioned above; in steam locomo The World From Day to Day fyews Events and What papers Interpret Them (Continued From First Page.) is presented by practically all of the papers, few editors indeed defending the present method. The proposal to change election procedure, however, brings forth a more evenly divided debate. There is, as always, some protest against "tinkering with the at all, on the part of the Springfield Union and the St. Louis Globe Democrat for instance, but to this attitude the Chicago Tribune (Ind. Rep.) replies that "these proposed changes do not reflect a restless and unwise desire to remake the United States Constitution. They deal with antiquities." Of the more popular of the two schemes, the Columbia Record says it' is merely a "movement to make the 'lame duck' an extinct species in Congress." It is "absurd," the New York Post (Ind.) avers, 'that a Congress elected in November of one year should have to wait till December of the following year before it begins operations, and the proposal to do away with this survival from the stage coach era" holds "intrinsic irierit," since, a3 the Springfield Republican (Ind.) tives, which utilize only about 4 pr suggests, it is "like taking the eleva SATURDAY EVENING, tIARRJSBURG TELEGRAPH DECEMBER 16, 1922. ing homes, where the ordinary coal furnace delivers only about 25 per cent, of the heat energy into the heated air and where unburned coal is dumped into the ashcans. In 200 tests recently made, the average ashcans was found to contain 50 per cent, of coal. "Coal is the most important source of energy em ployed by our modern industrial civiKssitioti, and it eonwrvatio should be encouraged in every way possible. Gas la Decreasing It is well known that the amount of available natural gas in Penn sylvania is rapidly decreasing. The rate of that decrease will be strikingly shown by the fact that the consumption of natural gas in 1921 was just about half of that in 1917. The remaining volume of gas will continue to decline rapidly, though if the United States Government recommendations, for correct natural gas use are carried out, there will still be a considerable amount available for a number of years. The chief sources waste of this natural resource are in too high pres. sures and in using gas in coal burn Ing appliances, in low set burners and solid top cooking stoves, and In in adequately insulated and improperly connected hot water tanks. These features can be easily corrected and if the users of natural gas can be brought to the point where they will make the effort, the same service can be secured with one third the present amount of gas used, and the length of time will be materially increased that natural gas will still be available to the more than 500 towns now using it. Describes Electric Power The electric power resources of Pennsylvania are discussed fullv in the handbook, and the present and future conditions with' regard to the use of electricity are shown in suitable diagrams. While electric power will be more and more used in industry and in the home nevertheless it will probably never be universally available for cooking and heating. This is contrary to popular belief, for there Is a widespread idea that eventually we will be able to do away with fuel and ashes, dirt and trouble, and cook and heat our houses by throwing on a switch. To disprove this belief it is ehown that to install an electric heating arrangement in a household would cost $3,400, and the current required to run heating and cooking appliances in the State of Pennsylvania would amount to 31,000,000, 000 kilowatt hours or nearly eight times, the current present used for all public utilities in the State. In connection with the fullest development of. the State's resources there is described the superpower system as proposed by the United States Geological Survey. Briefly this system contemplate the standardization ot the electrical characteristics of all existing and future electric power plants and transmission lines (in the superpower zone, between Boston and Washington) so as to permit of their interconnection with each other, and so that they will all feed into one huge system of transmission. The great benefits to be derived from this system would appear in the much greater amount of power made available and in a saving of 50, 000,000 tons coal annually. Other Subjects Treated These are but a few of the problems treated. Among the others are oil, water resources and flood ore vention, forests, iron, lime, glass. cement, and stone and clay. Part one closes with a list of concrete examples of loss and waste in the utilisation of resources with suggestions as to how to stop them. Part two consists of a series of maps and graphs showing the extent "of Pennsylvania's human, and agricultural resources. In the last analysis, the effective tor instead of walking up thirty six stories." In conditions such as exist to day, the Baltimore Sun (Ind. contends, "when a new spirit responsiveness to public opinion on the part of Congress is the urgent demand of the hour Its opponents will be hard put to it to find "any logical objection" to the proposed change of date. Nevertheless "there is another and ait important side to the plan," argues the Cincinnati Enquirer in upholding the President's objection to the proposal. "There are good reasons," as the Joseph News Press (Ind.) Bees it, "why a set of newly elected officials, fresh from the inflaming influences of a political campaign, should have an interval in which to cool off and get their bearings before assuming seats of power," and in the opinion of the paper the interregnum "serves as a shock absorber." The Waterloo Tribune (Ind.) agrees that "hasty judgment may result from almost immediate service after election. Legislation may be enacted, on the spur of the moment, that would hardly fit the situation afterward." What would have happened, the New York Times (Ind. Dem.) asks, "if the Sixty Eighth Congress instead of the Sixty seventh were now in session? A lot of miscellaneous 'wild colts' who hare bad no time to clarify their ideas or policies would have got to work and into confusion. The interval given by the Constitution is an opportunity for reflection. The first drunkenness of victory cools off." JURORS HOME FROM COURT AT CARLISLE i i Walnut Bottom, Dec. 10.

NSH Special Coble to Harriaburg' Telegraph and (he Chicago Daily News. Copyright. Paris, Dec. 18. That international conferences cost money is proved by a curious supplementary credit demand just presented by the Fr.ench government to the finance committee of the Chamber of Deputies to cover the expenses for French delegates to Lausanne. The minimum sum necessary to meet these expenses is declared to be 525,000 francs. Multiplied by twenty to cover the cost of the other delegations and the outlay for conference hall and other expenses, the French estimate quickly mqunts up into the millions. Even at that, however, the cost of conferences is less than that of war or rivalry in armament, "XIGGEIl MIKE" DIES Mew York, Dec. 18.
