The process is believed to be aided by the action of sunugnt on chlorophyll, the green coloring matter of plants. - Existence of formaldehyde In the cells of the algae was detected by the famous magneto - optic method of analysis, developed by Dr. Allison. with which he says it is possible to detect the presence of chemicals in proportions as amau as one part' la ' The evidence of ' resemblance of men and apes was described by Dr, tnaries - . u. uavenporc, or ine Carnegie Institution - of Washington, Human children, he' explained, pass through the same stages of development as do arjee j but so on beyond the point at which development of in apes stops. . Rays Ennlf Earth The famous and much - debated cosmic rays that rain on earth from outer space comprise "by far the greater part" of the total radiant ene gy in the universe, the academy was told. The cosmic rays must make up at least half and probably more of the uuiTciooa hivu eucjgy, uie resi, com lng from heat and light of the stars reported Dr. Robert A. MiUikan and I. S. Bowen, of California Institute or Technology. In our own star system or "aal axy," In which the sun Is only one oi thousands of millions of stars. - the total radiant energy in the form of cosmic rays, they said, is nearly equal to all other forms of radiant energy neat ana iignt or tne stars.

The human race lust now ia hav ing a sort of holiday from the pro cess of natural selection, he said. which is allowing the survival of many new types that might other' wise lose out in the struezle for existence. Dr Dayton O. Miller, of the Case School of Applied Science, Cleveland, announced the sun with its earth and other planets ia moving southward in the direction of the famous Great Magellanic Cloud of stars at the immense velocity of 490.000 miles ner hour. (125 m(W rr Mrnndi. "which is thousands of times faster than we ordinary airplane speed. i uroiuu Motion Detected For the first time also Dr. Miller has detected positively the effect of tne motion or tne eartn in its orbit around the sun. " This means that he has detected an "ether - drift." This is expected to have reverberations in the field of theoretical physics and astronomy. Einstein based his nrinclnle of relativity on the fact that Mlchelson ana Money. 'American - physicists. years ago attempted without success to find an effect of an all - pervading "ether" upon the velocity of light. Over a long period of years Dr. Miller has repeated the famous Michelson - Morley experiment with great refinements at Cleveland and on Mt. Wil son, Calif. In one series of experiment he made about 200.000 single reading or nis aeucate instrument which measure the shift of light interference fringes caused by the difference in time reauired by two beam of light from the same lamp to travel equal distances in,, different direc - tlone. The movement of the rth through the "ether" eause an indirect or second order effect in the interferometer used by Dr. Miller.

Cast Whatever you had to My about thtf clothes Joan Crawford wore in "Letty Lyntoa" you'll double and triple the praises for the new things aha will wear In her next picture, "Today We Live," which opens today at Loew's and never will return to any other Reading theatre. Door open . daily at' noon. : : - . : v . The beauty of the dresses in "Today We Live," is that they're so practical and wearable, and so distinctly different from anything that has been seen before. ' No wonder Gilbert Adrian, who creates all the clothes for the Metro - Ooldwyn - Mayer actresses, visualises gowns for Joan as something alive and in motion. She has that freedom of spirit that brings life and youth to every flounce and ruffle. You catch this spirit In an adorable evening frock that was cascaded with ruffles. It's just the kind of dress that would make any ; girl's evening a success whether she were dancing, dining or viewing a new picture or play. To get down to sober facts, the dress Is of moussellne de sole, that sheer material which combines . the best qualities oft chiffon with the crlspness of organdie. Adrian has the knack of knowlna - how to con centrate on one note in his designs and this particular one has that accentuated note in Its ruffles. They encircle the short sleeves and extend up and down the skirt at both sides ox tne front and back. A perky bow or Diacx velvet nooon caus atten tion to tne square neckline, while a matching - velvet ribbon brings at tention to the waistline. The niece de resistance, however, is another evening dress. Old King Cotton can take his throne with new majesty jvhen he sees what Adrian has done with cotton nlaue. Then were dozens and dozens of pique bowt on this dress, with dozens more entirely covering the accompanying little cape - it took a little time to get past the fascination of all these bows to realize that the dress material was interesting, too. It looked like hand - tooled leather, but turned out to be a sort of crinkly crepe satin. Tne dress is ideal lor any eve ning occasion, especially if one has the slim slenderness of Miss Craw ford. 'Wherea ruffles and bows are the most important feature of these dresses, buttons and buckles hold the limelight of two sports numbers. Both these dresses are of tweed. one in grey ana tne other in brown, usuaiiy wnen yqii see tweeds you think of airls bound for a huntinr inp dui not witn tweeds done up in the Adrian manner and worn by Joan Crawford. The rrev model was buttoned and buckled with silver and topped with a mannish coat of the broad shoulder - line that AdriaA lavors and Joan wears so well Just as interesting was the brown tweed dress that showed & hinii fastening on the side, with a stiffly starched linen Jabot down one side, ana ennanoee: bv shining silver buttons. Both outfits are worn with berets differing from any here tht has ever been pulled over a bobbed neao or hair. In place or the fullness milling over on one aid of the head they dipped toward the front and gave , a square effect over the forehead. This style of hat will have to be passed up bjr the not - so - young, but for those who can afford to have heads turned their wv thefii h divine. ' There Is. also something n in sleeves, to take the place of the ever lasting puffs that have elbowed their way to fame. Adrian miut have caught this thought, for he called Hannah, who turns his sketches into the real article, and asked for a black dress. Here's a dress that will delirht th eye, and also suit the purse of the vera gin. in or black crepe, with sleeves that still give a wide - shoulder effect, though thev'rn of petals of the material, in nia nt puffs. A little turnover collar of linen, with white braid lacing down the front, gives a white contrast and a school girl look that will be relished ay muneni anq graduates alike.

There was a time, when the American sang only in his own language or posaiuy in one foreign tongue, nut to day America is fortunate in having a nhethora of beautiful voices and in telligent singers who are versatile in languages as well as In operatic roles, oratorios and songs. No longer do managers ask If an artist is prepared with such or such a repertoire he goes ahead and books him in any emergency and every kind of an engagement without even consulting the artist. He appears to be right in so doing, for singers seem able to fill engagements at all times. Paul Althouse is among these fortunate ones. Considering the condition., that is still extant in Europe that the native singer uses only his ownr language it is remarkable to learn what has been accomplished in this country. Althouse made a splendid showing this season on the California coast when he performed the interesting feat of singing three distinctly different roles in as many different languages within the short period of six days. He earned high praise in all the press for excellent performances of the leading roles of Pinkerton in "Madame Butterfly," sung in Italian; as Faust, sung in French, and in Die Walkeure, sung In German, all in one week. It may be remembered that Alt - house, who Is singing here on Wednesday, May 10, in Rajah theatre, has another distinction. He was the first American tenor to gain recognition at the Metropolitan Opera house, in that he made nis operatic debut at that institution without having had any European training, thereby setting the precedent and opening wide the gates for future young American potentialities on that stage. He is also the youngest American to appear under the Metropolitan proscenium, being only 21 years of age at the time of his debut. . - - THE INTRUDER' SCREEN FEATURE AT STATE Lila Lee and Monte Blue Seen With Monte Blue and Lila Lee occupying the leading roles in "The Intruder," now playing at the State theatre, the supporting cast includes many of Hollywood's foremost artists. Both Blue and Miss Lee are well known to local theatregoers. Their work together In such pictures as "Officer 13," "The Stoker" and "Unholy Love" having won them legions of new friends.
