AUSTRIA ABANDONED TO HITLER Continued from Page One. were understood today to hav brought the German-Austrian crisi to a new deadlock. It was because of these dimcultic over consumation of Fuehrer Ado1 Hitler's plans, observers believed that the new Austrian, Minister o Interior, Dr. Arthur von Seyss Inquart, a Nazi supporter, hastenc to Berlin and conferred with Hitler. Well-informed quarters understoo that Hitler was 'insisting upon th removal of Victor Kienboeck, gov ernor of the National Bank o Austria and former finance minister The failure of trade negotiations which were broken off suddcnl Monday, was ascribed to Kienboeck opposition to extension of furthc credit facilities for Austro-Gcrma trade. Kienboeck also objected to Aus tria's participation in Germany (four-year plan for economic--self sufficiency, which is among the majo German demands. Therefore, It wa understood in well informed quar ters, Hitler insisted that a pro-Naz be appointed to replace Kienboeck who is a staunch left wing Christia Socialist. An impasse also was undcrstooc to have been reached in connectio with the press and propaganda office BERLIN, Feb. 17.--Dr. Arthu von Scyss-Inquart, official Austria Nazi representative in Austria's new ·cabinet, arrived today after a hurriet. all-night trip from Vienna and won almost at once into conference wit Fuehrer Adolf Hitler on · new de vclopmcr.ts In a situation that a Europe watched.

THE FEATURE EDITOR ot a prominent Illlnoir paper asks me to describe the "so-called sun tamp* or ultraviolet ray lights. . a a a h e a l t h measure. "I have read articles for and against t h e m . When 1 read one ol tho pamphlets against them. I Imagine 1 am committing s u i c i d e when I sit under my own lamp. When I read praises of them, 1 am enabled to scorch m y s e I t with sonic degree of equanimity. 1 believe an article on the subject would be of general interest." Neither extreme of statement concerning these lamps is quite nc curate. They do not do all the good that often is claimed for them, but. on the contrary, they do no harm except when used for too prolonged a time, because they can cause extensive and severe skin burn:, just as sunlight can. There arc t'n sources of ultra V.olet light: i 1. Natural--the sun. " 2. Artificial, (a) Carbon arc light (open or closed arc): (b) quartz mercury vapor arc (air cooled or water cooled). In this country the quartz mercury vapor arc Is Die type of light usually used. There arc those who argue In favor of the carbon arc light, and those who argue for the superiority of tho quartz mercury light. Tlie carbon arc light is used very largely abroad. When purchasing a lamp. It IN well to rcnicmb«r that there are n great many lamps on the market which are Inferior In their power to give off ultra dolct lights The nest way to judge of these Is to be certain that the council on physical therapy ol the American Medical association Ims approved the lamp you are thinking of purp'--sing. Harmful or Beneficial? Rcgardlngjthc question of whether these lamps arc harmful or beneficial! There should be little argument. Of course. If too long nn exposure Is made, the lamp will burn the *kin just Ilk- too much Dr. Clendening will answer question; of general Interest only, and then only through his column. exposure to sun. Very severe burns of the skin con occur from these lamps. 1 know of many people who havo gone to sleep under one and had a serious sequel. Aside from that, they do not do any harm. The use of the lamp for the purpose of some vague general gain In health IB. however, not justifiable. There are people who believe that Bun ton is healthy, but except for the fact that It Increases Vitamin I) In the body, there Is no justification for this belief. Of course, In children it Is a useful procedure to prevent rickets, especially during the winter time, when the hours of sunlight are short. The ultraviolet lamp Is of most benefit In such things as surgical tuberculosis of the bones and joints and for skin conditions, such as ulccni, boll*, acne, eczema. Prompt relief from pain is obtained in shingles (herpes zoster). Other uses of light therapy will be discussed In the article toir.or- Joy, Too Shy to Ask Aid for Lost Sister, Dies From Exposure { Continued from Page One. until they found the girl. There was no further trace of the xiy until yesterday evening, when *oy Kinkude, member of the scarch- ng party, found the body huddled igninst the side of a shallow ditch. Two airplanes, bloodhounds and members of a CCC camp had been used in the search. Dr. A. N. Winchester, Jasper coun- ly coroner, said tho boy had been dead 18 to 24 hours. He had died of exposure sometime during the cold rains and sleet Tuesday. The mine mills in the vicinity were all lighted brightly at .nights and the boy was only 100 feet off the mill road where miners passed to and from their work. The place where the boy died was only three-quarters of n mile southwest of where he left his sister. He was clad in corduroy trousers and a blue shirt, open at the front, and lay in several inches of water. Miners from the Playtcr mill were surprised that they had not seen the body as tlicy passed along the road. The father said the only plausible explanation was that Bert Lee was afraid he would offend the working miners if he approached them, and that in his fright and exhaustion, he had made no effort to save himself. Vivian was confined to bed at her home in Pittsburgh today, threatened with pneumonia from her 24 hours exposure. HUSBAND NO. 9 TURNS OUT TO BE BIGAMIST Somerset Man Gets State Job. HARRISBURG.
