WORTH EXCEEDS COST What a thing costs is often much higher or lower than its real worth. This was illustrated in an address by a leading engineer, who took as an example the cost and worth of that highly useful metal, tungsten. While tungsten costs only about a dollar a pound, this engineer declared that its value in reducing electric light bills would make it reasonably priced at $333,000 a pound for use in electric bulb filaments, instead of the old carbon filament exclusively used up to about 25 years ago. The nation's electric light bill of approximately 800 millions of dollars a year would be 2,900 millions if the same amount of THE LENOX TIME TABLE, LENOX, IOWA tained by the carbon filament.

QUEER SUPERSTITIONS Superstitions regarding the prevention and cure of disease have persisted from time immemorial, many of them, being still prevalent in the more backward sections of this country. A few were called to mind by a recent writer, in noting the death of an aged Kentuckian, who continued to wear earrings to the last, in the belief that they were good for the eyesight. Another old-time notion was that wearing a mustache was beneficial to weak eyes, just as it was thdught that carrying a buckeye or a potato in the pocket would prevent or cure rheumatism. One doesn't have to be so the tale. These superstitions, like the belief that a horsehair placed in a rain barrel would turn into a snake, are gradually dying out —but many presumably intelligent persons to this day will refuse to take the third light from a match, or walk under a ladder for fear of dire consequences. GAS WAR OF THE FUTURE It is evident that chemistry will play an important part in future wars. Any program of national preparedness which does not provide adequate means for meeting gas attacks and other forms of chemical warfare is sadly deficient in a branch of military activity which may prove of vital importance. And, inasmuch as the best defensive is a vigorous offensive, our forces should be prepared to carry the fight into the en- BEER ADS Knoxville Journal: A wee whimpering beer advertisement in last weeks 'Journal stirred up more reaction among the Marion county Drys than the story of a $2,700 embezzlement at the county treasurer's office and regardless of the fact that beer has been solemnly declared non- intoxicating and a legitimate article of commerce, these good citizens have shaken the warning finger in our face and stated in no uncertain terms what our fate is to be should the "Offense" be repeated, despite the fact that beer is advertised on the radio, the billboards, in the daily papers arid our local contemporary, the columns of the Journal must not be contaminated by its appearance there according to these earnest citizens. The Journal does not ac- CHURCH SUPPER RECIPES Baked pork chops and apple cobblers are two good items for the menu of the late fall church supper The Institution Management Department at Iowa State College recommends several recipes for cooking these foods in large amounts. For baked pork chops, 50 chops are ordered, cut % inch thick. Salt and pepper and cover both sides of each chop thickly with rolled cornflakes. Place in a shallow pan and put into a hot oven until brown (about 10 minutes). Then lower the oven temperature and bake for 1 hour. The best tem- perature is 325 degrees F. For 32 servings of apple cobblers, the following ingredient*, are needed. Apple Cobblers 1 gal. applesauce 6 tbsp lemon juice (2 lemons ( 1-2 c. sugar 1 c. brown sugar 1 c. milk 1-2 tsp nutmeg 1 qt. flour 2 2-3 tbsp. baking powder 1 1-2 tsp salt 3-4 c. lard Place applesauce in a greased steam table; pan. Add sugar, spice and lemon juice. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together; work in fat and add milk. Roll out dough to fit pan, about 1-2 inch thick. Bake in emy's camp. While the use of poisonous '\ gases is banned by the nations which were parties to the arms reduction conference held in 1922, Jsimilar agreements were in effect before the World War, yet that did not prevent the employment of these destructive agencies when he urge of necessity came. As a matter of fact, all the leading nations today are busy with the development of chemical war equipment, regardless of their pledges not to moderate oven (350 degrees F.) for 30 minutes. Serve witfc F. Norris, former use it. Dr. James president of the American Chemical Society, sounded a note of warning on this subject when he said, "When the final pressure comes a nation will use | any means available to save its life." He urged that our Army continue to study and develop the means of chemical warfare, with adequate appropriations for the purpose, as other armies are doing. Of course we do not want war, We did not want the last one. But another war may come — is almost certain to come sooner or later. We should make reasonable preparations to meet any emergency by developing every branch of modern warfare To fail in this would be to invite disaster, should war unhappily be forced upon us.

Dexter Sentinel: The other day I did a mean, ornery trick, and I'm not sure whether my conscience is hurting me or not —but I feel moved for some reason to tell on myself. I was driving down the highway in a sane and safe way, keeping over on my sideband f 1936 conception but 1935 birth, and the beautiful, black menace didn't miss my front ender six inches. I said several things under my breath and et some of it out between my teeth. It sure fretted and peeved me. The car was driven by a haughty damsel of maybe 25 autumns and with her were four other maidens of modern design. The one brief glance I had revealed they were all cig- aretted and out for a good time in a big way. They were headed for some place and were really on their way. I never expected to see them cream. IT MAY BE IN THE MATTRESS If you haven't been sleeping well and have decided that the difficulty originated with your mattress, it might be well to consider a bit before rushing to the store for that new innerspring mattress when pay day rolls around. Miss Marie Stephens, associate professor of textiles and clothing at Iowa State College, tias made a study of mattresses and mattress fillings. For the greatest sleeping satisfaction, she says, you need coil bed springs under your inner-spring mattress. The flat woven bed again— but I did. miles further on, Maybe ten I glimpsed watching the black stripes and the road signs, when, swish! them out on the parking, all five females gazing in my direction with fervent gazings. I pulled up slowly, saw that the big left rear tire was flatter than a pancake, and they evidently either didn't know how to remedy the difficulty or they didn't want to. Then something cracked in my head—and I remembered the oft declared sentiment that woman is equal to man. There were five beautiful gals—I am but one he-male. They were young—I'm getting agey. They had everything it takes—I have practically nothing. So I hoisted by old snooter high in the air and drove on. Har! Har! Har! spring allows sagging and is apt to develop a bend in the springs of the mattress. In the cheaper grades of inner-spring mattresses the number of coils is low, probably about 300 to a double-bed size, as compared with 800 or 900 in the best grades. The fewer the coils, the larger they must necessarily be, says Miss Stephens, and the larger the coils, the greater the chance for becoming bent and broken or breaking loose from the tyings. Upholstery in the cheaper mattresses is composed of cotton linters placed so sparsely that the spring may be felt by the sleeper. The best grades of mattress have colls which, axe encased in muslin.
