Leading medical men throughout
the entire civilized world have pro-
nounced against aleoholic beverages.
Alcohol is a narcotic drug.

The exvessive use of tobacco is not
only harmful to the heart and nervous
system but is often a manifestation
of nervousness wihch can be controll-
ed or overcome in better ways.
Tea, Coffee and Caffeine Drinks
Tea and coffee contain a powerful
drug, caffeine, They should be used,
if at all, in great moderation—not
not more than one or two cups daily.

Beware of headache remedies,

than take a drug. The drug harms
your heart. A cold cloth on the head,
rest and sleep, are often all that is
Have your eyes examined.
See a doctor if you are ill, but do
not buy a patent medicine.
Nervounsness and Mental Health
Promote your mental health by
wholesome pleasures and an outside
interest or hobby that is quite differ-
ent from your daily work. Try the
fun of using tools to make furniture
or house fixings, or to repair the
automobile; paint things; collect
stamps, coins; take photographs; play
cards, checkers, chess—anything that
takes your mind out of its work-a-
Perhaps housework is your daily
round, then join a club or group that
meets once a week. Get some recrea-
tion into every day.
; you are inclined to worry or find
it hard to be cheerful, look for the
cause in your body, or living habits.
If you have corrected the defects and
errors, then learn to be courageous !
Face the worst that can happen.
Everyone who wants the rewards of
success in life or any venture must
carry responsibility, and know care,
disappointment and temporary de-
. Accept the fact that things are not
right in this world, but do not let that
prevent you from enjoying life or do-
ing your work well, and getting satis-
faction from it. :
When your body is kealthy, doing
nothing is not as restful as doing
something that gives you self-expres-
sion and satisfaction. ~ Try doing this
and perhaps your nervous troubles
will vanish like magic. If they per-
sist, and you can find no solution of
your problems, talk them over with
your doctor or one who specializes in
Chemists and physiologists of the
University of Chicago, after experi-
menting for years with gland trans-
planting to recreate youth or prolong
life, have concluded that it cannot be
The only successes attained in part
were with lower animals, where
glands of the same species could be
transplanted. But this was not effec-
‘Dr. A. B. Luckhardt of the depart-
ment of physiology is skeptical as to
the result of any human success.
“We are handicapped in experi-
ments with humans, because the
glands available for such work are
from other animals. The moment we
introduce a gland of one species into
a gland of another, we bring about a
peculiar biological action.”
Dr. Carl Moore, directing research
along these lines in the zoological
laboratories, is a pessimist.
. “I don’t say that gland transplant-
ing never will be done effectively, but
rather that it never has been accom-
plished,” he said.
“It is perfectly true that a trans-
planted gland will live for a while,
but it is equally true that it will not
grow or renew its functions. There

through the whole gland to feed it

Silk stockings and low necks are
changing the physical status of wo-
men from the weaker sex to the
stronger, said Dr. Ephraim R. ‘Mul-
ford of Burlington, N. J. President
of the Medical Society of New Jersey,
at the Hotel Chelsa today, where he

“Today our American women are
in better physical condition than our
men,” he added. “And while there
are many reasons, we might credit
one to the fact that women do not
wear too many clothes, especially in
the Summer. Their garments, light
in weight and light in color, permit
the ultra-violet ray of the sun to give
its full benefit. Men, in their dark
clothes which completely cover them
from neck to ankle, are denied this
“Women are Jearning how to relax.
While they go whole-heartedly into
an increasing number of activities,
from home to politics, they realize the
importance of once in a while taking
a complete rest; and often that time
lis when they are having a manicure
or a marcel wave. Men do not rest,
even when they are being shaved, for :
the barber Jievents their complete :
peace of mind.
GREAT CARE TAKEN |
MAKING FORD GAS TANKS.
The gasoline tank is one of the
really revolutionary features of the
new model A Ford car and is a strik-
ing example of the quality of materi- |
als and workmanship in this latest
product of one of the most remark-
able industrial organizations the
world has ever seen. :
The tank is made of terne plate,
which is sheet steel coated with tin to
prevent rust and corrosion. The
steel sheets from which the tank is
made are from .049 of an inch to .051
of an inch thick.
The two halves of the tank are first
pressed out into shape in huge met-
al presses and these two halves then
20 to the assembly line which leads to
the welding machines. The opening
for the gasoline inlet is stamped out
of the upper or cowl section and the
filler flange for the cap is rolled into
the opening. A steering column
bracket is riveted on the outside at
the bottom of the lower portion of the
tank and these rivets are all treated
with tin plate to prevent corrosion.
An ignition cable support also is weld-
ed to this lower section and baffle
plates are soldered inside to prevent
the splashing of gasoline when the
car is in use. Then the two tank
halves go into a soda bath where they
are thoroughly cleaned.
The welding of the two halves
takes just four minutes and is the
first instance on record in whch terne
plate has been successfully welded.
The process by which these two shap-
ed pieces of plated steel are made in-
to one solid, hollow piece is known 2s
seam welding. It is somewhat simi-
lar to the chain stitching method of a
sewing machine in sewing cloth. The
weld seam around the tank is 120
inches long. This welding job is done .
completely on one machine, the two
edges to be welded being rolled be-
tween two electric contact rollers
which fuse the two pieces of metal
and make them one.
Immediately after the tank is weld- |
ed it is placed in a testing machine |
where 15 pounds of air is forced into
it. It is then sealed and submerged
in a water tank and a careful exami-
nation is made to detect any airbub-
bles which would indicate a leak.
The tank undergoes two other smilar
compressed air and water tests. dur-
ing the finishing operations, the last
of these beng made after the gasoline |
gage has been installed.
But there is still another process
which is being used to test frequent
samples of the finished tanks. In|
this test the tank is filled with seven
or eight gallons of water and placed
upon an agitator or “shimmy” ma- |
chine which simulates driving condi-
tions over an extremely rough road at
a high rate of speed. In some of
these tests sample tanks have been
thoroughly jounced and jolted con-
tinuously for four or five weeks with- |
out developing any leaks or manufac- |
During the experimental stages
several of these tanks were blown up
by air pressure until they looked like
balloons, but the welded seams ~ held y
perfectly against the terrific pressure.
When finished, the tank is mounted
in the car to form the cowl, and it is
separated from the engine by a solid
Schoels of State Cost $193,000,000, '
$70.47 Per Pupil.
The division of statistics of the De-
partment of Public Instruction has
just compiled statistics, which shows
that the current expenditures in
Pennsylvania for public schools ap-
proximates $130,000,000 annually.
This item includes the expenses of in-
struction, general control, mainte-
nance, auxilia agencies, fixed charg-
es and such other operating expenses
recurring from year to year.
In addition to these instructional
expenditures there is a yearly ex-
penditure of approximately $37,000,-
000 for buildings and equipment, $26,-
000,000 for payment of interest and
The current expenditure per pupil
in net enrollment is $70.47. In school
districts with a population of more
than 500,000 the average expenditure
is $87.75. In those districts with a
population of from 30,000 to 500,000
the average expenditure is $83.03. In
districts with a population of 5000 to
30,000 the average expenditure is
£70.16 and in the districts with a pop-
ulation of less than 5000 the expendi-
ture is $567.96 per pupil in net enroll-
In Centre county the enrollment of
pupils total 10,694, and the expendi-

Poison Booze Caused More Than a
Thousand Deaths in Iilinois.
Poison booze the stuff manufactur-
ed in abandoned livery stables and
foul basements for foreigners, and
adorned with gaudy forged labels,
caused more than a thousand deaths
in Illinois in the last year. Christ-
mas holiday festivities probably will
swell the casualty list considerably.
The situation has become so acute
that the old Keeley Institute at
Dwight, Ill, has been reopened to
accommodate the survivors.
Discussing the situation, Dr. Isaac
D. Rawlins, of the Illinois Depart-
ment of Health, said: :
The 409 fatalities charged directly
to alcoholism and the 731 to cirrhosis
of the liver, surpassed those found
in the records for these causes even
in the days of wide-awake saloons,
while one can only surmise how many
of the 1722 persons killed in automo- |
bile accidents owe their demise pri-
marily to rum drinking.
“Paying for health work out of
one packet and buying poisonous rum
out of the other is the society econom-
ic practice disclosed by statistics,
which show that liquor killed more
in Illinois last year than typhoid
fever, scarlet fever, smallpox, men-
ingitis, measles and infantile paraly-
