An attempt is k'iny made to repair the damage immediately. The manpower situation and the shortage of materials of this nature make the damage particularly rinnoyini* at this time as it diverts labor and materials badly needed for war work. Members of the tin It' club are particularly disturbed due to the fact that they have lowered Green fee* tu a bare minimum—thereby making available tu tiie younger clement the facilities of the course. The police are being' asked to resume patrolling of the property in order that future lawlessness can be reduced to a minimum. The volunteer workers who are endeavoring to keep the course alive are particularly incensed at the action of these young' hoodlums in nullifying their efforts to improve this lung established course and retain it for future use of the large number of servicemen golfers whose return is anticipated in the near future. Tin's latest act of vandalism is DO YOU REMEMBER? Prom The Files of The News 20 Years Ago •Mr. and Mrs. Louis P. >Racke, and their son, Hnri'lH, left for Larchmont, N.

Around the Clock one of manv only that such inisdemeMTioi have be-on committed here over ;i peri(;cl of some months and is typical of other depredations reported in numerous communities, in Connecticut and other states. Persons who are shocked and saddened over the tendency of so many youngsters to damage a-r,d destroy property are asking how much lunger this •widespread vandalism is likely to continue unchecked. They believe it is time in on; vigorous measures were taken to stop it. Heretofore warnings and threats of punishment, special educational programs designed to make the vandals see the error of their -ways, and numerous other experiments to bring about needed reforms, have failed to accomplish their purpose. Now that the public's patience with the miscreants is well nigh exhausted, there appears to bo a growing sentiment Jn favor of adopting stronger disciplinary treatment of the culprits who seem to feel that they can do whatever they please Some students of the problem of juvenile delinquency are of the opinion that both the delinquents and their parents should be compelled to share in the punishment; that if the parents had to pay for damage done by their wayward find destructive children, they would exercise their parental authority much better than many of them do at present, find that the delinquents, finding such authority had actually been restored in the home, would begin to mend their ways. At any rate, the problem is one that must be solved for the most part in the home, if it is to be solved at all. When a determined and intelligent effort is made to master it there, we will be well on our way toward bringing about a rel'omi, the urgency of which is plainly apparent.

And quite as easy to" diagnose that, roly-poly who may ha'v.c . a few muscles left but Vail of'them arc larded and covered.-and infiltrated with fat cells. .- ," Not. only that but there 1 , is a fundamental difference in the outlook for these different kinds of. people. The warnings against the dangers of overweight do not apply to the first fellow. Hi's.muscles will keep him active and his..arteries supple and burn up. his. energy and so avoid the diabetes..and- heart disease that go with the other group whose overweight goes by the less beautiful name o£ obesity. Test Fpr Fat ' . v It is fairly easy, as I' say, by a mere glance to spot the extreme examples amonj,' these.-'groups But what about the intermediates! —the fatties who arc pretty ac Live, the bull moose .\yho looks jus a little puffy? If a person "is'over weight and 'belligerently contends it is all muscle, and . the. doctoi thinks otherwise,•' is. there any ex act scientific test to prove which is right? Yes, a method had been devised by some Navy doctoi-.s, from which I infer that it may bo important for the armed forces to know whether thai!- overweight men can really Ktnncl the gaff or not. It should be 'called the "Eureka test," because 'It goes right back to the description of our old friend Archimedes on about page 270 of Myers' Anciont History. For the benefit of those who have v forgotten or who are so young they never had the cultural advantages of that inspiring text book, let me remind thorn that Archimedes was the ollleial scientist of Syracuse about 250 B. C. He was the government researcher for the tyrants of those parts, and on one occasion Heiron. the tyrant pro tern, who was thinking of indulging' himself in a new crown, asked Archimedes to determine whether the. proffered article was pure gold or alloyed with silver. Specific Gmcity Test Offhand Archimedes didn't know of a way, but being a researcher he look his problems to his bath tub where he noticed that when Archimedes got in a certain amount of water slopped out. He realized that this was in accordance ^yith density, or specific gravity, . and- that gold and silver would-displace different amounts'of water, so'he- did a nudist marathon to: .the palace crying — "Eureka 1 ".- 1 - upon which Heiron was very .grateful to him and gave him a eleah toga to go home in. The Navy doctors, applying this principle, determined the specific gravity of different human bodies, by hydrostatic weighing; .i. e.— equivalent volume—weight in air, minus weight in water allowing for ei-ror due to air in the lungs and intestines which they can calculate. They found that there is a' 15j HELEN KSSARY (Central Tress Columnist) Scenes And Sights Almost Everyone There Viewed At . Was A Candidate Democratic Convention For V. P.

The three boys who wrote "Don't Change Horses" were in a Broadway place the other day, where the waiter ignored thejr orders, made them wait a long time for food, refused to clean their table and was otherwise intolerable.

The fellow's a delegate to the convention. Yes, by Andrew Jackson's shiny brass spittoon, he is A DELEGATE. The other 789,.133. and .two-thirds people .here were vice presidential candidates. It is a sort of joke on somebody-—maybe . Throplloboi^om look as if the vice presidency had C "Of Thee-1 Sing"—but it does come into its own, at last, by way of'n fourth term. This reminds me that I haven't hoard Mr. Roosevelt mentioned except ir.dir.ectly. But those vice presider.iial TIS- pirants. They were popping out at you from behind potted palms, from under the olive in the Martini glass. They were always in Uto •mjddle of the poached egp in',the corned beef hash, ,-ind behind the lemon that travels with the Lake Michigan whitcflsh. They were an adhesive lot those .boys. They patted you on the back and' paid you compliments about your four-year-old hat. They wanted to know how all the folks were back home. They said that was a swell, piece you wrote three weeks ago last Tuesday. They poured smooth, half hidden criticisms of Other vice presidential candidates into casual remarks about the weather. " . The best V. P. story happens to be a true one. A certain Washington correspondent who continues to believe in Santa Glaus came rushing oIT the sleeper and ran into a southern senator who at the moment was but a southern senator to him and nothing more. Said the S, S,; "I think, my boy, that you ought to know the president is cooling off a little on 'Henry Wallace.' ThercV a dark horse in the race now. No, my boy, I'm not at liberty to-tell, sir'cc, I'm not the kind of a follow to betray a secret. But I'll tell this much, he's in the Senate and hc'sgoin 1 to win by many a furlor.g, Well, good bye, my boy. good to see you. Give my to that beautiful wife of yours. By the way, the chief is strong for this follow." The Washingon correspondent being new to the Democratic convention mood of 19-H, went galloping through the better smoke-filled •ooms, he button holed everybody h c met except one bus boy who was busy carrying out a tray of dirty dishes. Hc asked a thousand questions. Nobody could tell him who the -sure and certain dark horse .vas. About midnight, not having yet aeon able,to find the missing can- didate's identity, he called his morning's friend, the southern •senator- . "Say, senator," hc said, "I'm terribly sorry to bother you this late, but I swear I can't, find out the name of that dark fiorse you were telling mo about. Couldn't you Kive mo-just-one liltlc tip on this surefire vice presidential candidate?" "Well, my boy," replied the senator as chirpy as a Gawga cricket. "I really don't .want to say. But I like to help you newspaper boys whenever 1^ can..The fellow I was talking about is—or—well, to be frank—that -man is none other than me," NOW THE REPUBS say their platform, no matter what it stales is over-loving toward the other nations. It wants them to have ice cream every day, with pistachio nuts in it Sundays. Look, fellas, isn't that what you callad globaloney, which gave you many a hearty laugh?

The former national committee .chairman and postmaster-general is • probably a little sad himself. Jim would be far more of a personality; at this moment if instead of revealing the bitterness he felt over'his. break with Mr. Roosevelt ho had kept on being friends—in public', .at'least—with his old boss. J doubt "if Mr. .Farley is really resentful _ in his. jovial Irish soul: Somebody'has made him think he ought to bo' resentful. But -if he'd -jump on the wagon now, even as. late as it is, people would say, "What a truly big man. He can forget animus." After all, when a man has made- politics practically a life work he can't hop off the b.inwugon- because somebody got mad at him. At least hc can't if hc is as smart as Jim Farley. Many a profound explanation .is given for the hold those Roosevclts' have on the "pccpul," I have my own explanation. THE- MORNING MAIL: . "Deal Walter." affectionately writes T.
