Ford Predicts Nation On Brink of Greaiesl Prosperity in Hislor Continued from Page One. of a glossy substance made by chcmurgic process. It had bee manufactured from soy beans wheat chaff. He placed it on th floor and jumped on it. The piec was undamaged. "If that was ; steel," he said, " would have caved in. , "Once production of this matcri; begins on a large scale--and we * working on that very thing now- the demand for farm products wi increase tremendously. The farme instead of producing only the thing we eat, will be producing materia for industry. "It is the solution of the Nation troubles. Get agriculture and indus try working hand in hand, and th^ will mean the farmer and workin man are partners, inter-dependcn on each other." For years Henry Ford has been th trumpeter of this new era in whic the earth would provide a solutio for economic woes. Today's predic tion of his prophecy's imminent fu fillmcnt recalled his pioneer work i the use of farm products to mak steering wheels, gear-shift knob distributor covers and other parts. t He highly approves , the fa_ chemurgic council, mndc up of ou standing scientists interested in dc vclopment of new products from ag ricultural materials. Now he believes he has the mean by which the farmer--the little farm cr--can attain a mass productio basis in keeping with the demand industry soon will lay upon him fo raw materials. Ford's new tractor follows none o the accepted patterns. It looks lik nothing on land or sea. It has one large cleatcd wheel. Directly in front of it is the driver's seat and a smaller wheel which serves for steering. To the left and behind the large wheel is'anothcr small one. Between them is the engine, a Ford V-3. That's all there is to it. , Ford was asked how much tho tractor would cost. ' /'How much do you think we should charge?" he countered. "How much do you think the average farmer can afford?" He was asked if it would sell as cheaply as the Fordson tractors of the early '20's. "It will," he said, "and less if possible. Our flrst tractor sold for more than S800 and. we brought that down to $375. We would like to sell this one cheaper if we can. · "I don't care if we can't make a cent of profit. The main thing is to get something started. The farmer must have the means, at once, to make his business productive and profitable. If wo sell our tractor cheaply, it may bring the prico of other machinery down. Nowadays it costs tho farmer too much for the tools he must have. "Even if we rc;ili/c no profit on it, we will be snlteilcd if this tractor serves thnt end." DHIO FARM FAMILY OF THREE SLAIN Scene at mass slaying; Henry Baumclstcr, slain man, Inset Police in thrco states hunted a 21-year-old farm hand following the alaytoff of all threo members of the Henry Bnumolstor family at their farm at North Lima, O., suburban YounRstown. The suspect was reported seen driving away from Youngstown In the Baumelstcr automobile. Henry Baumcistcr, 35, was founU shot to death and his wife, 40, and his -father, Theodore, 60, were found clubbed to death among tho corn stalki.ln the barn at the rear of the Baumcistcr " farm home. --Central Prat If Science Studied Human Hair As Much As Wild Life, Bald Heads Would Be Fewer WASHINGTON, Jan. 7.--If science paid as much attention to human hair as to the pelage of animals, the flrst few rows at any musical comedy might cease to resemble a sea of billiard balls. Science delves into the problems of keeping animal hair luxurious largely for economic reasons. The careful study of pelage helps produce bumper fur crops of great value and human hair has been practically a drug on the market since the days when the Indians were on the warpath. An example of the careful scientific study of animal hair is found at the Storrs, Conn., wildlife research unit. This unit, one of nine similar research projects supported by the American Wildli/e Institute, is located at the Connecticut State College. It is financed by the American Wildlife Institute, the U. S. Biological Survey and the college itself. At the Storrs unit one of the major research projects is the ' study of problems besetting the cottontail rabbit. Pelts arc studied at all seasons of the year to determine the effects of change of climate and diet on their fur. To arrive at exact conclusions in this respect it is necessary that the area of moulting be accurately gauged. This is done in two ways. Flesh side up, the skins arc laid flat -under a glass ruled "into centimeter squares. Where the skins show black, the fur is shedding. Where they show white, new fur is to be found. In this manner the amount of moult- ing on any individual pelt may be accurately measured. The other method of measuring areas of moulting is by me of a plainimcter. Many delicate instruments are in use at Storrs for the study of the rabbit's breeding habits. Temperature is an important factor in cccol- ogy and wires arc run into nests to record variations in heat while the female is feeding her young. These temperatures are taken through clever device known as the recording potentiometer, invented by Dr. Raymond H. Wallace, plant physiologist at Storrs. Data such as that developed at the Storrs unit and the other research F. D.R. Cook in Film? What's What At a Glance Hits White Race Elizabeth McDuffi* A screen test luui been made of Elizabeth McDuftlc, cook at the White House, for part in the coming production, "Gono With · the Wind". It iicems everybody possib'.u han been mentioned for 1 two yean for a part in UiL* film. By CHARLES P. STEWART WASHINGTON, Jan. 7.--Congress' egular session, beginning Monday robably will be as unproductive as he extra session, recently ended. * During the short holiday recess 'few Deal leaders worked hard to mt some "pep" into the Rooseveltian trogram, but the rank and file of ogislnlors seem as little inclined as ver to lend support to White House ccommcndations. Quite generally hey scattered from Washington over Christmas and the New Year. Prob- ibly few of them went home, except hose who live very nearby the Capital, but they went a-'vacationing elsewhere, anyway. Apparently they preferred not to remain here, to be vorked on at leisure by the Admin- stration's managers. Said managers wanted them to stay, for a week or .0 days of fixing between sessions. It was significant that the lawmakers dodged,, by absenting themselves «o numerously. Not that the Republicans had any reason for going into hiding. The Democrats were the solons who sought seclusion from administrative pressure. But, considering that Democrats are about three times the strength of Republicans on Capitol Hill, they were the ones whose exodus gave Washington so quiet political Christmas day. IN EMBARRASSING POSITION Many a Democratic senator and representative, who must face his bailiwick's voters in the spring primaries and again nt the polls in the j autumn, is in an embarrassing position. On the one hand, it is bilious business for him to go on record as having done nothing to counteract the national economic recession. On the opposite hand, it is equally bilious business for him to subscribe to some of the recession countcr- actonts, which manifestly must be repulsive to his people locally. Maybe such a remedy will be beneficial nationally, but will lick thnt candidate in his personal district. The senator or representative who will jeopardize his own chance of reelection, right where he lives, on account of any national consideration (even if he believes in it on a broad scale) is a "rara avis." F. I. ICS PROBLEM Congressman No. 1, Jet us say, hns no particular interest in Congressman No. 2's problem, nor has Congressman No. 'J, any interest in Congressman No. \'t problem. Yet No. 1 will help No. 2 if No. 2 will help No. 1. President Roosevelt's interest is Nation-wide, but it is not cohesive. Other interests, in part in sympathy with him, ncvcrlcss combine against him. F. D.'s cause lacks unity. A DO-NOTHING CONGRESS Undoubtedly it means another stalemate at the 1938 congressional session, ns nt the lust cxtrn session. There will not be any legislation to mention. But it will be a democratic (with little "d") session. The executive power will be stepped on. It will not set anything that it has asked for. projects sponsored by the American Wildlife Institute has proved invaluable in working out the solutions to many perplexing problems of wildlife control. The American Wildlife Institute set up these units in the first cooperative wildlife management, research and demonstration program ever attempted for the purpose of providing material for a concerted attack on the factors which are threatening all forms of American wildlife. French Give College Books. OBEHLIN, Ohio, Jan. 7.--Departmental heads of Obci'lin College arc selecting 10,000 francs' worth oC French books, a sift of the French government.

I lor Heiser, traveler, lecturer and aur thor, told a University of Minnesota audience that developing an appetite for "palatable" alfalfa salad would add vital elements to the American diet.

Liquid, Tablets Try "Kub-My-Tisirr'-WorHTf nert Liniment Sports Gieanimgs Tom Kacur, Uniontown High grid lineman, basketball center and distance track star, has been ordered by physicians to "take things easy" j for at least three months. The 185- pound center of the 1937 Maroon nsd White eleven seems to be threatened with n hear condition. Tris Speaker, famous outfielder and erstwhile manager, maintains that Joe DiMagglo and Julius (Lemons) Solters are the only two outfielders in the major leagues with worthwhile throwing arms. Solters is a former Grindstone coal miner. John H. Moore's Sciotoville High continues its undefeated record by spilling the Ccredo-Kcnova quintet at Portsmouth, Ohio, 29 to 28, as Johnny McCarthy, a star guard, shot a wild one from a remote corner in the final seconds of play. It was tho opponents' first loss of the year. The so-called "bums" of fistiann are deserving of a break from the metripolitan sports writers, Jack Dcmpscy, erstwhile champion, who has walked with bcgftars and kings without losing that common touch. Dcmpscy said that there's too much "knocking" in the boxing game, as he pleaded for a "break" for the "hams."
