They are also natural- horn tinkeres. a knack which they utilize to make their farming both successful and interesting. Only SO acres of their farm are in cultivation, but they raise such items as celery, which grosses upward of $800 an acre In poor years, and maybe .-S.1,200 to SI.500 in betters years. Hence, i; was worth the Gertens' time and effort to improvise a six-row celery sprayer — a device which draws both the idly curious find the professionally interested from miles around. One of the things they did to create the contraption was to remove the rear part of a 1D-I1 Ford, put it on backwards, and equip it with big tractor wheels, thus geared down to a spread of 1 1-2 to 3 miles an hour. On the chasis arc carried ti barret container for the spray solution, a pump to eject it at 3fiO pounds: pessuro per square Inch, and a gasoline engine to power the pump. Underneath is slung a pipe with six jets, one for each row. For men of such bent it was no trick to reclaim a six-acre tract of low land which in dry ynnrs hue! been a slough and in v.'ft ycai-s, a lake. With a power- shovel, they threw up a dam GOO feet long to cue off drainage from ibove. The dam comprises about 30,000 cubic beet of clay and gravel, borrowed from a neighboring hill. Another of their improvisations, is a miniature loader, which in four or live scoops of a half ton each, loads a spreader. Coast Plans 1-4 Billion For Public Works GFs Destined For Continent Eat The Best By IIEXNJSX HACKKTT United 1'ross SUiff Corre.s]iondcnt Sacramento (U P)— ; The slate of California already has set aside funds or made preliminary provision for more than a quarter billion dollars worth , of public works to be constructed in the immediate 1 postwar period, and, according to assc'mhly .speaker Charles W. Lyon, no\v has become "the leading state in the nation" in postwar planning. In a June special session the State Legislature boosted the authorized stale program to ?13S,- S-10,000 and appropriated $10,000,000 for county aid. which will lay the groundwork for a ,5225,000,000 postwar program. The Legislature also appropriated directly a total of S3,100,000 for immediate preparation of plans and nearly $-1,000,000 for building sites, so that the program itself will be ready to go \vhon the ends. The state program will include building of new educational facilities at the University of California and three of the state colleges, new state olllce buildings in Sacramento, Los Angeles and San Francisco, three new mental institutions, a revamping oi' the state Capitol and a brand .now governor's mansion. The construction will be paid for out of the treasury's rapidly growing surplus. The treasury's "postwar employment reserve" before the session had built up a balance of some ?31,OOO.OCO, and since I hen the Legislature has transferred an additional $75,000,000 to i the reserve. The surplus, exclusive of the latter figure, is c.\- Dcotcd to reach $G'.,000,000 by July 1, 30-10. The $10,000,000 county aid bill is for the state's share of building JJy DUniJiy ANN HARMON Unilcd Tress Slaff Correspondent London (UP)—If your'cr is short of steak those days it may bo troops arc waiting here to embark for Europe are treated to four-day ftjasts in their marshaling areas."

Professor Perry wrote that he • had an '-excellent 'man on his staff who had become totally blind, but 1 was carrying-, on -his work in "marvelous fashion," but was handicapped by inability to rend blood pressures. Klobcr explained how the standard spring: pauKo was altered .to enable the blind physician to find the position of thei indicating nee 1 die. "This needle is much more fragile than' the hand of an ordinary pocket watch and cannot be touched .without rlamapc. To make it possible to discover the location of this needle by touch, a small plastic fiber bristle was cemented to it, This bristle then was allowed to project pproximately .one-sixteenth of'an .Inch through a-.cii;cin cut in the pastic crystal . which covers the dial, On -this-.crystal, we have-fixed Braille 'dots to-correspond with tho various.indication.!! on'the .dial of the instrument," Klcber believes that this plo could be acla-ptnd-to .other gauge instruments, enabling the bind to r.cad them without interCcring -with the sensitivity .of the.instrument.

So rare it must bo .imported from China, Australia and South America, tungsten ore is received at the factory in huge barrels and goes through a complicated process before it is refined to the point where it can be used as an irreplaceable war metal. It is used as a core in armor-piercing bullets and shells, armor -plate, g'n n breeches nnd as erosion-resistunt liners in 'heavy ordnance. It also has wide use in electronics, where It becomes filaments, cathodes, anodes, etc. Unlike other metals, tungsten cannot be melted and worked from liquid, but must bo reduced to powder, after multiple steps. When it finally is worked into a square slug it is "hot-swaged"—that is, dealt successive .dainty_ blows by scores, o fsma.ll strokes ijisidc a die which reduces the slug to wire, dress, a garment which '1:13 proved practical on tho European front.

Green Mountain Boy Saves Battalion On Saipan Island Saipan. Marianas Islands, July ]5—(UP)—A youthful descendant of Ethan Allen's Green Mountain Boys is credited with saving an entire Marine battalion on Saipan island. He is Corporal Pat How- of Fail-field, Vermont. Marine sources say that Howripan saved the unit from annihilation when it was caught in an open field by the sudden appearance of four enemy tanks firing at pointblank :'angc. The situation was so serious that reinforcements were being rushed from the beachhead. But by the time of their arrival Howrigan had personally taken the situation in land. His commanding officer said that his mortar fire was so accurate that he kept the advancing tanks bracketed in hot lire until they wheeled and withdrew. The Marines, unsupported by American tanks, lost several men before the Vcrmonlcr's counter-attack drove away the enemy. .70 head n. day. - - ' - lUdJnr Honm In "Best buninciiB today horses," he said.'
