Proudly the boys marched, stepping along to the music of a band near the head of the column, while large crowds on the sidewalks waved and cheered, tl was a gala day for the lads and they enjoyed it to the full. One of their number, Joseph F. Carroll Jr., 17-year-old senior at Brooklyn Prep, who was designated "Boroueh President" for 34 hours, reviewed the marchers. In the stand, too. were I. David Cohen, principal Of the Brooklyn Boys' Vocational School; Lawson H. Brown, secretary to Borough President Raymond V. Ingersoll, and Police Lieutenant James F. Cone of the Crime Prevention Bureau. The procession began at Remsen and Henry Sts. at 1 o'clock. The boys paraded through Remsen St. to Borough Hall. When word was received of Controller Cunningham's sudden death a hush fell over the throng. Explains Way to Cure Car Spring Fever Cars, like human beings, get Spring fever. Too many car owners don't know why they should change their motor oil, according to S. C. Evans, manager of the Pure Oil Company. Motor oil doesn't wear cut, contrary to popular belief. But the oil must be changed because small particles of dirt and metal from wearing parts inevitably mix With the oil. A common fallacy allows weather change only to dictate the grade of oil. Temperature inside the engine, not the outside air which makes the motorist shed his coat, should also be considered. Motor oil performs two functions first to lubricate, second to cool by circulation. The tendency among car owners is to disregard this important factor, and to put in an oil too thick to get in between the bearing clearances, thus hampering circulation and reducing the protection of that thin, sturdy film of oil. Chevrolet Sales Show ; Big April Gains A total of 62.388 units were delivered by Chevrolet lealers in the first 20 days of April, according to W. E. Holler, general sales manager of Chevrolet Motor Company. Sales for the year through this period total 235.332 units as compared to 154.526 units in the same period of 1933. making the period 152 percent of the corresponding period in 1933. Sales reported for the 20 days of April are more than 180 percent of the corresponding 1933 April figure of 34,354 units. Retail deliveries of commercial cars and trucks continue to gain. Trucks totaling 16.224 were delivered during the April period, which triples the 1933 figure of 5,304 units for the same period. Sales in the commercial field have shown steady increases, Mr. Holler pointed out: and at the close of this April period had reached a record figure of 73,619! units for 1934. Pontiac Claims It Solves Glare Problem With motorcars traveling at higher speeds each year, the need for pov.erfu! illumination has increased. At the same time the need for properly protecting oncoming firivirs from dangerous and illegal glare has increased. Pitiac engineers have met this double problem' in the 1934 models by a multi-bean combination for country, city and passing which eliminates glare and yet provides sufficient light where it is most needed, explains A. W. L. Gilpin, Pontiac general sales manager. "When passing approaching cars the left hand headlight is depressed to flood an area close in front at a level below the eyes of the approaching driver. The beam from the right hand headlight is thrown ahead as before with that portion that would shine down the left-hand side of the road masked oft by ths lens. This provides a strong beam that will illuminate objects on the right side of the road. "For city passing both headlight beams are depressed to illuminate a broad space close to the car. Nash Vet Has Run For Fourteen Years Kenosha, Wis., May 5 In the nationwide "oldest car" contest now being conducted by Nash-Lafayettc dealers everywhere the winner will be awarded the new 1934 twin ignition hie six sedan, which was the 1.000,000th car off Nash production lines, as a feature of Chicago's 1934 Century of Progress exposition. One of the Nash veterans is Model 686. It is owned and has been operated continually since its purchase in larch, 1920, by F. H. Cooke, district representative for two Pennsylvania steel companies. The price was $1,771, fully equipped. Since its purchase the car has been in continuous service and has to its credit approximately 195,000 miles. It has never failed on the road nor has there ever been a new bearing of any description put into it. The main crankshaft bearings have never been taken up nor have the king pins or king pin bushings been replaced. The last carbon and valve job was done in September, 1932. Spark plugs have not been taken out since. The car is powered by a Nash Rix-cylinder, valve-in-head engine nd it one of the 121-inch wheel-base opea models so popular in 1920. t nil. la v V 400th Anniversary Adds to Quebec Charm Province to Celebrate Discovery of Canada in 1534 Points of Interest in Land Rich in History By EARNEST B. BEARNARTH Director Travel ureaus, Automobile Club of New York The discovery of Canada by Jacques Cartier in 1534 is to be marked by impressive ceremonies in the Gaspe Peninsula, where the explorer made his first landing, as well as in all of the sections of the Province of Quebec. Hence, this is a good time to plan a tour of Canada. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle Infornxation-r Bureau or the travel bureaus of the Automobile Club of New York can give valuable assistance in preparing your itinerary or informing about hotels, roads and points of interest. In cosmopolitan Montreal, English ! is spoken as much as French, and: traffic signs, theater placards and street car markings are given in both languages. Northwest of the city is one of the finest touring regions in the entire Provine, the Laurentian Mountains. High in these hills are crystal lakes with excellent bathing beaches and winding streams teem-in? with trout and bass, while through the more remote districts, deer, moose, bear and other big game roans at will. An interesting trip into the Lau-rentides is over the Loop Highway, going from Montreal to Ottawa and passing through prosperous farming settlements, small industrial towns and little Summer resorts. Among the good hotels in the area are the Laurentide Inn at 9te. Agathe-des-Monts, Gray Rocks Inn, three and one-half miles off the highway, near St. Jovite, and Pinehurst Inn on Lake Raymond at Val Morin. Turns Bafk History's Pages To visit the city of Quebec is to turn back the pages of history and to see a foreign city. Here is a group of people who have remained distinctively French in a sea of English, who are an integral part of the great Dominion of Canada and intensely loyal to the British Crown bllt. whr still -nH,,l rroin the evidence of their French ori.n and remain, to a large extent, a separate people. Two popular side trips out of Quebec are visits to the Shrine of Ste. Anne de Beaupre, one of the most famous places of its kind in America, and the trip to the Island of Orleans. The first church in America to be erected to Ste. Anne, mother of the Virgin Mary, was built at Beaupre in 1658, by sailors who credited this saint with their miraculous escape from a shipwreck. In one year as many as 300,000 people, seeking cures, sometimes visit i this shrine. i Thirty-five miles from Quebec is the southern entrance to the Lau-: rentides Provincial Park, a region of such irresistible charm that it seems to have been created for the sole purpose of giving pleasure to man. Its sparkling lakes and tree- ; clad slopes lure the vacationist whther he seeks rest or the more exciting forms of recreation such as games, fishing, hunting or long canoe trips through the park. Colorful Picture To the vacationist seeking the I unusual .the old villages and simple fisher folk of the Gaspe Peninsula ; present a quaint and colorful pic- ture. Its lure has long been rec-! ognized by artics and writers who : come to this region in search of i atmosphere. Along its north shore high cliffs drop abruptly into the ; Gulf of the St. Lawrence, forming a rocky and sea battered coast line, while the south shore faces the magnificent Baie des Chaleurs. A tour of the Gaspe undoubtedly offers one of the most delightful motor trips inthe eastern part of the Continent. This year in particular Gaspe will be a popular touring objective because of its associations with the discovery of Canada. A tour of Quebec might well be combined with a tour into the Mwtlme provinces, New Brunswick, Auto Hints Eagle Readers desiring copies of near-by road maps may obtain enlarged reproductions by addressing; the Automobile Editor.

J Great Increase Seen In Dodge Deliveries Detroit, May 5 A comparative tabulation issued by A. Van Der Zee, general sales manager of Dodge Brothers Corporation, and dealing with the number of pas-sengsr cars and trucks delivered by Dodge dealers in the first 16 weeks of 1934 and of 1933, shows the gain in 1934 deliveries to have been twice as great as the entire sales volume recorded in the January l-Aprll 14 period of a year ago. Whereas Dodge dealers' deliveries for the first 16 weeks of 1933 amounted to 24,124 vehicles, they reached a total of 60,608 vehicles in the corresponding period of 1934, ! i"c " Pc'" ' TU- t yvnL i ,EI ft 1 In the year-to-date total of 6 608 retail deliveries reported by Dodge dealers, 26,687 were of Dodge passenger cars, 11,626 of Dodge trucks and 22,295 of Plymouths, Pacific Coast Takes To Chrysler Airflow Public acceptance of the Airflow Chrysler cars on the Pacific Coast is more enthusiastic than it ever has been for any previous Chrysler product, according to Joseph W. Frazer, general sales manager of the Chrysler Sales Corporation, who has just completed a trip to that section of the country. "I think that one reason for this is," says Mr. Frazer, "that the Pa QUEBEC AUTO ROUTES 1'' I I Clay Used to Make De Soto Cars Rust Proof New Treatment Includes 7 Different Operations of Washing, Heating, Etc. Detroit, Apr. 21. A problem that has received considereable engineering thought during the past decade that of buiding a rust-re-sistant" automobile h as been solved. And, strangely enough, the metallurgists, chemists and others who had a hand in the development finally turned to "Mother Eearth" for one of the chief ingredients used in the solution. They used clay a very special kind of claymixed with a rust-proofing chemical compound, but clay Just the same. The clay treatment is used on the new Airflow De Soto bodies. Engineers claim it will prolong the life of the De Soto finish from rust deterioration at least 25 percent. The treatment includes seven different operations. according to R. P. Jones, paint technologist for the Chrysler Corporation. Has Alkali Bath "Airflow bodies are first sent through an automatic alkali wash to remove grease and oil," Mr. Jones explainde. "Then, the alkali is rinsed off and deply etched areas of the body are spotted with a phosphoric acid solution. The clay comes next. It is sprayed on the bodies, six pounds to each body. The clay?covered bodies are placed in induction type ovens, the only ones in the world developed for automobile bodies, where the surface of the steel is converted into an ln- .ert phosphate coating. "The automatic water wash fol-lofs. The inactive elements of the original clay are cleaned off. When the moisture has been absorbed, the bodies are ready for the customary painting operations. The entire proccs takes less than 30 minutes for each body, for the bodies are moving rapidly from one operation to the next." cific Coast motorist is fond of driving great distances. The roads and the weather are so fine throughout the greater part of the Coast region that motoring conditions generally are ideal. "It is very gratifying to be able to report that Chrysler orders are being well sustained and that production figures are highly satisfactory and getting better. Up through April, 1934, we had shipped 11,598 Chrysler cars, or about 40 percent of our entire 1933 production, and we had orders on our books for shipment in April and May for 19,-207 cars. Snappily attired you t lis march past the reviewing stand at Borough Hall in yesterday's Boys' Week parade. At the right, reviewing the parade, from left to night, are: Harold R. Moskovit, Ernest P. Roberts, secretary of the Boys' Advisory Council, and Lawson Brown, secretary to Borough President Ingersoll. An Anti-Nazi Novel L. C. N. Stone in a Powerful Story Pricks the Pouter-Pigeon Complacency of Hitlerism With German Medals On a Jew By HAMILTON WRIGHT Jewless Germany under the Hitler regime is a phenomenon whose occurrence will not go unsung by the tenor voices of novelists. Particularly in their hands does the subject require delicate treatment. There is abundant material for the support of either faction, the National Socialists or the Jewish outcasts. But to put into contest both at the same time will be suicide; the novel is an unsatisfactory vehicle for a treatise on governmental policies. Thus the novelist is doomed to have his work considered propaganda. His only salvation, unless he is proud to have it thought of as propaganda, is to insert his political revelations so subtly and pleasingly as to leave integral the body of his creation; tainted with theory or not, as the reader wishes. One of the first and better of this monumental fiction group is "German Family," by L. C. N. Stone (Bobbs-Merrill). For the attitude it strikes, Nazi censors would quickly ban it. Mr. Stone has created a vivid, many-peopled canvas, with a primary incident to give rise to its being. An English widow, Elizabeth Carrington, marries a German Jew, Alex Hirsch, immediately after the war. She and her two children, Dina and Peter, go to live in Germany with her husband, his family and his friends. The two nationalities and religions fuse happily. Especially with Dina do the roots take hold firmly and quickly. She tails in love with a member of her stepfather's family, Willy Hirsch, journalist and playwright. She marries him. With this background the picture swells in size to include various characters and situations upon which the ostracism of the Jews, when it comes, will take a heavy toll. Dina's life with her Willy is focused centrally, while it takes up comparatively little space. Other love affairs are shown meeting the sorry predicament. The neurotic Christopher, Dina's English cousin, is driven from his innocent love of Jewish Liese-Lotte back to the arms of his Gentile mistress, Grete, a feminine athlete among the Se mitics, is seduced by Franz Von Sturm, a fickle Nazi; then treated by him to the death of a dear friend. Honest, kind Gustav Stern suffers humiliation for integrity to Biography of By FREDERIC FELIX There is a vast supply of interesting and valuable reference material regarding the late "Wizard of Menlo Park," and Mary Childs Nerney has made as good selection as could be desired in her new volume, "Thomas A. Edison: A Modern Olympian" (Harrison Smith and Robert Haas, Inc.). She had the advantage of living and working in the same daily circle with the wonder man for two years and puts into the work much that commands attention and impresses with its informative and humanly personal appeal. There is only one weakness noticeable and that is giving way to the almost universal tendency to find and rattle a skeleton when a person of prominence is under consideration. Fortunately, very few points could be set toward any disfavor in consideration of the man, so the book turns out rather close to perfection. It is easily recognized, in a perusal of the volume, that Edison was no accidental genius. He showed unusual ability-from boyhood and he would have done more, even, than the actual and colossal total of his i life if circumstances, from the very first, had been always as favorable as he 'desired. He was a native of Ohio, born of excellent parents, with pleasant home associations. His mother, of Scottish descent, worked carefully to give him the best foundation possible for his future and, while it was plain he was not inclined to depend on schools or col leges, she had him follow, willingly, in the absorption of high-class material through attentive home reading. He is quoted as saying: "My mother was the making of me, she understood me; she let me follow my bent." In early years he was called Alva, but later, and of his own accord, Final judgments of divorce were granted during the past week by Supreme Court Justice James A. Dunne to the following: Mildred Yanotskv from Albert Yanolskf Nancy Krause Jrom Morris Krause. Florence J Rose from Martin Rase. Eva Lieberman from Louis Lieberman. Louise Slrahle from Charles C. suahle. Mildred Kronstein from Charles Kron-stein. . , Eda Levine from Jacob Levine. Edna M. Friedman from Edwin Friedman. , , Anna C Doyle from Alexander F. Doyle Rav Cohen from Samuel Cohen. Oolde Michael from Benjamin Michael. Edna B. Dale from Brian O. Oale. Matilda Walters from Edward Walters Marlha Tannen from Emanuel Tunnen. William Wallers from Isabel Walters. Rachael Arbeiter from Philip Arbeiter. Auuusta Weinsoff from Jacob Weinsofl. Rose M Hoeh from Max C. Hoeh. Tony Pellicane from Marian Pellicane. Mary M. Steele from Alister W. D. Steele. Anna Rubin from Harry Rubin. May Friedman from Samue Friedman. Supreme Court Justice Philip A. Brennan granted a final decree of divorce to William Neasham from Bertha Neasham. Supreme Court Justice John Mac-Crate granted a final decree of divorce to Paula Musicant from Morris Musicant. Interlocutory decrees of divorce were granted by Justice Dunne to the following: Sarah Ferber from Nathan Ferber. Morris Kardonsky from Sarah Kardon- SltTheresa Messineo from John Messlneo. Gertrude Culmone from Dominlck Cul-mone. Blanche Muss from Arthur Muss. Sarah Laterman from Solomon Later- his beliefs, then commits suicide. And so on. It is Diana and Willy who most stubbornly resist this stigma which will inevitably change their lives. The author is admittedly biased against Hitlerism, but he has a brisk narrative, moving and alert, to fall back upon. The Nazis, whenever introduced are cruel, foul-mouthed brutes. An occasional incident flashes the true drama of the conflict without too much prejudice. Perhaps the best of these is the scene In the office of Dr. Gold-mann, the eminent Jewish surgeon. The Nazis break in and try to carry off the doctor when he refuses to give up his Gentile patients. Gold-mann complies quietly and asks only to be allowed to put on his coat. After a suspiciously long time he reappears, dressed in his uniform as an officer in the World War, covered with medals. The apparition is staggering, ridiculing the abused authority of the Nazis. who slink off apologetically. Tragedy and renewed inspiration are the ends of this struggle for loyalty within loyalty. These adaptable, absorbing events lack workmanship only In their projection, which is reportorial and frequently inadequate. It is the style, then, which shows the wear, of subject difficulty. As an answer to the Jewish question, there is certainly one in Willy's speech which closes the book: "It will mean a great deal of misery for the Jewish races, and it may last for a long time yet. But we shall survive. We always do." IN TITLE SWIM Charles Campbell, crack Brooklyn freestyle natator, will be among a select field of youthful swimmers who will compete in the metropolitan junior 440-yard swimming championship at the Park Central pool, tomorrow afternoon. Miss Edith Haman Brown of 400 Sanford Ave., Flushing, is stopping at the New Weston Hotel, Manhattan, Lady Clipperton of London, will visit her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Leonard A. Yerkes of Kirkside, Brookville next month. She will arrive from Philadelphia and spend a month before returning to her home in England. Lady Clipperton has been visiting friends and relatives in America for several months. a Rare Genius he put on the Thomas, the name of a grandfather. In early life an unfortunate experience injured his hearing and he went into practically total deafness, which proved a serious handicap in many forms. His first experiments, at home, were in chemistry and he did every thing a limited purse would allow. His real start was made when a friend taught him telegraphy in gratitude for having saved his child from a railway fatality. With mas tery of the key he started on a tour of the country and had many experiences to broaden him for his later more serious contacts. One of his first contrivances along the in ventive line was an automatic re ceiver for the telegraph and nls first recognition was receiving $40,- U00 from the Western Union Telegraph Company for a printer. This capital gave him the belated start he so long desired and Menlo Park, N. J., began to mean much in the electrical line. In time, he easily could have made a selection of any world location, but he chose to keep all his developments, to the day of his death, in the same center of his beginnings. He had two experiences in married life, both happy and successful. His first wife was Mary Stillwell, an associate of his early working days. After her death came Mina Miller, who survives as the widow and who proved truly a pearl of great price as companion and aide. His accomplishments were surprising and their variety astonishing. His recognitions were from every country and sphere of activities, but his modesty tempted him almost to refuse them all. He never could manage religion, but he made many efforts, even finding frequent peace and comfort in stopping in at a Catholic church of his locality while passing.

Henty and Horatio Alger were alive today and were agreed to collaborate on an adventure story for boys which was to contain the best features of each, they could not concoct a tale that would be more exciting than the real-life story of Charles Trowbridge, one of our better-known actors who plays the leading role in "I, Myself," the new play to be seen at the Mansfield Theater this Wednesday evening. In fact, if Mr, Trowbridge could get .permission from Miss Bushnell ana get it in writing he could use this same title, "I, Myself," and weave about it a story of adventure that would delight the hearts of the small boys who sooner or later grow into the purchasers of theater tickets. For this leading actor of "I, Myself" has traveled all over the United States and Europe, spent his boyhood in a war-disturbed Mexico and his early manhood in Hawaii, where volcanos and fanatical natives combined to fill his life with thrills, terror and frequent calls for courage. Charles Trowbridge first saw the light of day, as the aforementioned old-fashioned writers might put it, in Vera Cruz. His father was an important member of the American diplomatic corps stationed in the Mexican city when it was filled wtih political intrigue and warring factions. Seeine men start casually shooting in the streets as he walked with a nurse or fleeing bands of lawless men suddenly emerging from ambush as they rode in the country were events as commonplace to him as the Saturday afternoon movie is to the modern New York lad. His parents decided a calmer atmosphere would be more suitable for an impressionable child. so they sent him up North to the United States to school. The change of environment inspired Charles Trowbridge with a desire to be an architect and, never dreaming of being an actor, he learned how to build the theaters his destiny had decided he would later act in. However, he tired of architecture after a short time. The anxiety for excitement must have been instilled in him as a child, for as a young man he was easily urged to migrate to Hawaii to run a coffee plantation. This he did successfully until the course of events became too violent even for him who had been suckled on excitement. Once when he was prospecting in the mountains of Klla Kalauaea, he came by accident upon a group of religious fanatics performing their voodoo rites in secret. Angered by the presence of a white man, they forced him to flee for his life. A little later when he had calmed down from this adventure, he faced the harrowing experience of a volcano erupting violently in the di rection of his plantation. Eventually the lava flowing unconcernedly over his fields ruined it utterly. He decided then to test again the quiet of life in ttie United States and come to New York. Here some friends, watching him relate his experiences with color and passion, suggested he try act ing as a career. Nothine loath, he went about the usual lob of inter viewing managers. After a few months of experience, he met Henry Miller, who gave him a role in "Moonlight and Honeysuckle" and then in "Come Out of the Kitchen." Ruth Chatterton was the star of that opus and he remained with her for seven years as leading man making a definite place for himself in "Daddy Long Legs.". Later he played opposite Florence Reed in "The Lullaby" and appeared suc cessfully In "The Broken Wing," "The Last . Warning," "Congai." 'Craig's Wife," "As You Desire Me "Ladies of Creation" and numerous others. His most recent success was as the husband in "Dinner at Eight." In seeking an actor for the principal role in "I, Myself," a role which calls for a man of distill guished presence as well as an actor with an understanding of the sub' tleties of the part, the Messrs. Pear son and Baruch remembered their delight in the performance given by one Charles Trowbridge in "Dinner at Eight." Fortunately at cast ing time for "I, Myself," Mr. Trow bridge was free, and when he was introduced to Miss Bushnell, the author, she put her stamp of ap proval on him and he was engaged tor tne leading role. Mrs. Armln W. Riley of 111 10th St., Garden City, is at the New Weston Hotel in Manhattan where her daughter will Join her oday, Wife of Harry Lindenhatim Declared Ineurable After Kings Park Visit An annulment of mariage on the ground that the wife has been insane for more than five years and is incurable, was granted yesterday by Justice James A. Dunne in matrimonial branch of Supreme Court to Harry Lindenbaum. builder and real estate operator, who lives in the Half Moon Hotel at Coney Island. There was no opposition to the annulment plea. Mortimer Day, who was appointed special guardian for the wife, Mrs. Dora Zelinsky Lindenbaum, told Justice Dunne that he visited her at Kings Park with the physician in charge of attendance and that he was unable to obtain any coherent statement from her. Alienists Concur The court also received reports from three alienists, previously appointed for the purpose, who declared that in their opinion Mrs. Lindeubaum cannot recover and that her mental condition is rapidly becoming worse. Although Lindenbaum holds the controlling interest in corporations that own real estate assessed at more than $500,000. the equities in the properties have declined and what little Income is derived from them is paid to mortgagees, he testified. Hardly Any Income, He Says Te takes $25 a week out of the rent collections for his work, he testified, and his present income is practically nothing. Mrs. Lndenbaum is a beneficiary of her father's estate. Asistant Attorney General William K. Hopkins, who represented the State, recommended to Justice Dunne that Lindenbaum be required to pay a minimum of $1 per day for Mrs. Lindenbaum's support, although it costs the State a trifle over $2 a day, and that he be di- . rected to file a bond for $2,000. Such an order, he told Justice Dunne, will leave the way open for the State to obtain reimbursement for the woman's support out of her own estate. The Lindebaums were married Jan. 26, 1921, and in February, 1927, the wife was stricken with a mental ailment and went to a sanitarium. Since then she has been in various institutions. Paderewski Prize for Symphonic Work The fund of $10,000, established by Ignace Paderewski in 1900, to further creative effort by American-born citizens, yields this year a sum of $1,000, which will be offered for ttie best work for symphony orchestra. The Judges of the competition will be announced later. The contestants must be American-born or born abroad of American citizens. The works offered must never have been performed in public, or have been offered in any previous competition.

From the total number of works offered which meet the standard defined, three will be selected by the judges for orchestral rehearsal. The trustees of the Paderewski Fund will provide for the necessary copying of orchestral parts for the pur pose of ttie rehearsal, without expense to the composers. By courtesy of the trustees of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and of Dr. Serge Koussevitzky. the conductor, the woks selected will be rehearsed by that organization. After hearing them the judges will de- . termine the final award. The prize-winning composition will be performed publicly by the Boston or chestra.
