The Labor Day Races at Altoona.
The greatest speed test in the his-
tory of automobile racing is forecast
for the 250-mile championship classic
on the Altoona speedway, Labor day,
September 1. For the first time on
any track, pilots have already started
tuning their motors on the great oval,
six weeks before race day. Even in
preparation for the grueling 500-mile
endurance race at Indianapolis, driv-
ers seldom ‘begin practice more than
four weeks prior to the event.
Bob McDonogh, young protege of
Tommy Milton, who started the rac-
ing world here on June 14th at the
first of the season’s two contests, by
finishing fourth in his maiden race on
the fast board ovals, arrived in Al-
toona Monday with his mechanician
ready to begin tuning on the mile and
a quarter bowl.
Special precautions have been tak-
en by the speedway management to
protect the drivers in their unusually
early practice because of the great
amount of improvement work in prog-
ress at the huge plant to prepare it
for the Labor day race. .
Indicating the increased interest in
automobile racing throughout the
eastern part of the country, all prece-
dents for advance ticket sales were
broken when the seats for the Labor
day championship were placed on sale
this week. More than two thousand
mail orders had been received for re-
served seats ready to be filled when
the ticket racks were opened.

Experiments at Edgewood arsenal,
Md., where the Chemical Warfare

for a number of bronchial ailments.
The whooping cough treatment is
very like that which President Cool-
idge took in Washington for his cold.
The only difference is that it requires
an hour’s inhalation of gas for four
successive days—and that the ratio of
gas and air is slightly varied.
Coincident with the announcement
of the new cures, army physicians pre-
dicted that a few years will see a spe-
cial gas chamber in every school, with
specially trained nurses to administer
the treatment. The result, they say,

Cigars Now Less than 2 Per Cent.
Although they do not realize it,
smokers of domestic brands of all the
popular makes of cigars throughout
the east are puffing cigars that are
very low in nicotine content. Up to
this time the average domestic cigar
tobacco contained as high as three and
one-half per cent. nicotine. The new
cigars have two or less per cent. of
nicotine as the result of careful breed-

they grew 20,000 acres of it. The seed

spring finds a great increase in the
planting of this low nicotine tobacco.
Realizing the smokers’ demand for
mild “smokes,” Olson worked with the

showed that an extremely low per- |

Old Indian Trail to be Reopened.
Williamsport, Pa.—The old Culbert-
son trail which Indians and early
white settlers used in the West
Branch valley of the Susquehanna to
cross the mountains to White Deer
Valley, is to be re-opened and marked
by the State Department of Forest
The trail was first constructed by
the Indians as a pack trail and later
used by settlers as a short cut across
the mountains. It was made a bridal
path, then a log road and finally aban-
doned. For years the trail has been
unused but now it is to be reopened.
“Con” Man in Austria
Has Devised New Game
When the proprietor of one of the
leading jewelry stores in the Austrian
city of Salzberg recently saw a weil-
dressed young couple walk into his
store he had visions of a profitable
deal. Consequently, when the young
man, who introduced himself as “En-
gineer Koerner,” asked to see some
rings, Herr Sikan spread out the fin-
est he had.
After considerable conversation,
‘Engineer Koerner” picked out two
solitaires, valued at 35,000,000 crowns,
which figures out about $500 in real
money, explaining that he was mere-
ly acting as agent for a weaithy
friend, too busy to spend time in such
matters, te whom he must show the
rings before closing the transaction.
Handing the jeweler a bundle of
checks as an advance payment and
courteously requesting his companicn
te await his return, “Engineer Koer
ner” left the store.
Hours passed, still the young wom-
an sat waiting for her cavalier. Herr
Sikan finally grew suspicious and
called up the banks and the police.
Then it turned out, says the story in
the Berner Tagwacht, that the young
woman knew little more about her
companion than did the jeweler, hav-
ing only made his acquaintance a few
days before in a Vienna coffee house.
The police knew a whole lot about
“Engineer Koerner,” however, quickly
identifying him as Frederich Schiller,
twenty-three-year-old barber and cafe
pianist, with a long record of similar
jobs, says the New York Times. When
arrested “Engineer Koerner” had one
of the rings in his possession, as well
as 6,000,000 crowns for which he had
pawned the other.
