There is not much consolation to
be had in connection with the virtual
sinking of the S. S. Normandie? ex
cept for one thing.
The French had gone to a lot of
expense to build the giant vessel so
that she could be converted to an
airplane carrier in wartime. To this
end, special funnels were arranged
on the side of the deck, to give space
for runways; especially large eleva
tors were installed at each end of
the snip; and the top deck consisted

However. U. S. naval engineers
decided that despite all the French
preparations, the Normandie's UPP^*
decks were not strong enough to hold
a flock of planes. The French had
sacrificed reinforcements below, for
the purpose of beauty in the pas
As a troop ship the Normandie
was considered useful, but not near
ly so useful proportionately as a
medium-sized vessel, such as the
Manhattan. Reason: big ships draw
so much water that they could not
efficiently carry troops to Dakar or
West African ports. Small boats
would be necessary to take soldiers
and cargo ashore.
Also the Normandie was too big to
get through the Suez canal.

SINKING U. S. TANKERS
The navy is being more hush-hush
than usual regarding the sinkings of
oil tankers off the Atlantic coast.
However, here arc a few important
facts about the situation which are j
r.ot military secrets.
First fact is encouraging. The
tankers sunk were old, small and
slow. All of them were 20 years old
over, ar.d the largest, Standard
Oil's India Arrow, was 8,327 tons.
On the surface, this would indi
cate that oil and gasoline losses on
the East coast would not be heajy^
Huwevei, tills ia iiuv the C?5c. rwi
all of the big, new American tank
ers have been taken over by the
navy. This was under an arrange
ment whereby the maritime com
mission had lent the oil companies
around $800,000 per vessel to build
fast modern tankers making 19
knots. This is so fast that they
can avoid submarines and also keep
up with the fleet.
However, these new tankers, built
in co-operation with the navy, are
now with the fleet.
? Buv Defense Bonds ?
Two other factors indicate the im
portance of the sinkings on the At
lantic coast. One is an announce
ment made by the British last week
that sinkings for the entire Atlantic,
including the East Coast of the Unit
ed States, has been heavier in Janu
ary than ever before. The other is the
fact that comprehensive rationing
of oil and gasoline for the East coast
is now a certainty. In other words,
oil and tanker losses have been very
Reason for these losses is easy to
understand. It requires no official
explanation. As everyone knows,
especially the enemy, we had to
rush various kinds of shipping to
the Pacific to replace the damage
done at Pearl Harbor. Also we had
a large number of warships busy
convoying vessels across the North
Hence we have been caught snort
handed on the East coast.
Note: Most people don't realize it,
but the oil shortage along the At
lantic could be relieved considera
bly by a curtailment of tank car
rates on gasoline and fuel oil. Last
tall the rail rates were reduced on
crude oil but not on gasoline or

Disease Costs Hog Raisers
Twenty Millions Annually.
By W. H. BOYNTON
( Proleisor oi Vttrrtamty Scirmcr.

Hog cholera is admittedly one of
the most destructive of all animal
diseases. The yearly cost of this
disease has been estimated at be
tween $20,000,000 and $30,000,000 in
the ITnit?*? =Icr.s. With?. the
past few years the author has de
veloped at the University of Cali
fornia college of agriculture a new
tissue vaccine which is expected to
cut this annual cholera "tax" very
This vaccine is known as BTV and
is now available from commercial
companies. It has been used on
more than 100,000 hogs on the Pacif
ic coast and in the Middle West.
BTV is composed of finely ground
glandular tissues from hogs infcct
ed with cholera. These tissues are
taken from the hogs at the height
of the disease and then treated with
puraiyptol. The result is a vaccine
which cannot produce cholera in a
hog but does produce an active im
munity to the disease.
When BTV is used, vaccinated
pigs can mingle with unvaccinated
pigs without transmitting cholera
to them. Furthermore, pigs harbor
ing latent infections, such as pneu
monia or enteritis, at the time of
vaccination arc not subject to the
danger of flare-ups of these infec
tions due to the lowering of body
resistance. This danger of lowered
resistance followed by death from
some secondary infection has been
one of the major drawbacks of the
semm-vim? of vnrrination
