•i j . :t , ■ t.. -
Senator Paul D. Grady, of Johnson,
favors the erection of a radio broad
casting station at the North Carolina
State College of Agriculture and Engi
neering, to coat, if necessary, $25,000,
and stands ready to Introduce and
champion, the necessary legislation.
' The state should own and operate
such a station," he said. "I am so
thoroughly convinced that tt. would
ijieet with popular approval that I
would not hesitate to favor a liberal
appropriation. It seems to bd that
$25,000 would not be too much 4o be
gin with. However, I am going to
write experts and And o«t how much
It will 'take. - Also, I am planning a
series of conferences with Captain
George Cox, of the electrical faculty
of State college, who, I believe, can
render valuable assistance on account
of this record as a radio expert duHng
the world way."
Continuing, Senator Grady indicated
that when he has received the data
he desires he will draw a Mil provld-"
ing for the establishment of a state
owned and state-operated station of
no mean dimensions.
"There ere thousand* qf people in
the rural districts," he went op
"whose only amusement comes from
the outside world. Comparatively few
are able to buy expensive receiving
sets. Wich the establishment of a
■ station in Reledgh, they could pur
chase dnexpeslve receiving sets and
enjoy radio just like people who have
, plenty of money.
"Then, aside from the purely amuse
ment features that would be furnished
our people, they could be kept Inform
ed on subjects very vital to them. I
have in nilnd particularly agriculture.
For Instance weather conditions and
crop reports could be broadcast dally.
This would greatly aid the farmer.
The extension- division of the college
conld use the service to promote the
things It is trying to do, and it the
state superintendent of public instruc
tion so desired, he could hold a state
wide teachers' meeting once a week.
Again, there Is the state highway
commission. If such a station M estab
lished, Mr. Page and his assistants
could keep our people contantly in
formed about detours, the opening of
new routes and the condition of the
highways generally. Id rainy weather
this service would be very valuable."
Senator Grady plans to go thorough
ly Into the subject and to push fab
fight for a state owned broadcasting
station. The State college is the logi
cal place for it, he thinks. This view
was also expressed by Senator O- B.
Moss, of Nash county, who declared,
"I am thoroughly in sympathy with the
novement, and at the proper time 1
shall give it my active support.
Oend Out Movie Films.
Fifty miles of motion picture films
are -being sent out weekly by the Vis
ual Education Division of the North
Carolina Department of Public Instruc
tion ot the 75 public schools of the
state equipped with motion picture
machines according to James B. Wil
liamson, director of this division.
• "These Alms," said Mr. Williamson,
"•are sent free of all charges, except
those Incident to their transportation.
They Include various subjects. Some
of the films are purely educational in
their nature. Others are designed to
amuse the people who see them. No
film of doubtful character Is ever par
chased by the department or sent out
for exhibition. Each Is thoroughly
censored before we turn it loose. It
believe good, wholesome pictures are
"These programs," continued Mr.
Williamson, "go largely to the rural
districts. They reach people who
otherwise could not enjoy screen pro
ductions. We buy many programs
already filmed a&d, on the other hand,
we make many films ourselves.
Mr. WHllameon 1* planning to take
pictures of the Inauguration of Gover
nor McLean. These will be shown in
the rural schools equipped with motion
picture machines. Also, he recently
took pictures of the opening of new
inlets in eastern North Carolina.

Senate Rejects Government
Ownership for Muscle
Shoals Properties.
GOVERNMENT ownership of Mus
cle Shoals received Its death blow
In the senate when that body, as the
committee of the whole, by a vote of
48 to 87, substituted the Underwood
leasing bill for the Norrls bill, which
had been reported by the committee on
agriculture as a substitute for the
Henry Ford measure passed by the
housQ. The Underwood measure how
ever, may not be flnßlly passed by the
senate. Instead, the Jones substitute
Is quite likely to be ruccessful. This
provides for the appointment of a com
mission of three, comprised of the sec
retary of war, the secretary of agri
culture and one other to be selected
by the President, to study the entire
problem and report a solution to con
gress next winter. Most of the gov
ernment ownership advocates are said
to prefer this to the Underwood bill,
under which the President Is author
ized to lease the Muscle Shoals prop
erty at any time up to September 1,
on terms similar to the Henry Ford
ofTer, except that the lease Is limited
to fifty years. If no satisfactory lease
can be made a government corporation
will be created. The bill emphasizes
production of fertilizer for agricultural
purposes, and specifies the amount of
air nitrogen which must be produced
by a lessee.
TX7ITH a margin of only one vote
* " the senate refused to override
President Coolldge's veto of the postal
employees' pay raise bill. Flfty-flve
senators voted for the measure, but 29
stood firm In sustaining the veto and
the prestige of the White House and
of Senator Curtis, the new majority
leader of the senate, was saved. This
was done by the aid of Sehator Dial,
Democrat, w*ho voted to sustain the
veto, and of King, Owen and Shields,
also Democrats, who were absent. Sev
eral who orglnally favored the bill
changed over and voted against It.
It was at once announced by the
administration leaders that they would
now push the Moses bill, which pro-
•vldes for wqge increases for postal
employees and for postal rate ad
vances amounting to $60,000,000. But
It was believed the chances to get this
measure through In this session were
JOSEPH McKENNA, for 20 years an
associate justice of the United
States Supreme court, retired from
that exalted position, and on the same
day the President nominated Attorney
General Harlan Piske Stone to succeed
him. As a mark of the affection In
which Justice McKenna was held by
his associates his resignation was
made known* with unusual ceremony.
A large basket of roses was plsced on
the bench In front of him and Chief
JUstice Taft announced Ms retirement
Justice McKenna read a letter to his
colleagues, and then," as he withdrew
to the robing room, the court and the
audience in the chamber arose and
stood silent.
Until trie President selects a new
attorney general the place will be
filled automatically by Solicitor Gen
eral Beck. Several men were consid
ered for the vacancy by Mi. Coolldge,
and It was said be looked with espe
cial favor on Charles Beeclmr Warren
of Michigan, former ambavnador to
Japan and Mexico. This stirred up the
entire Michigan delegation In congress,
and also Governor Groesback of that
State, who had himself been suggested
for the place. Senator Couzen* carried
t" the White House the inf«~"9sri»n
• iiHi the MicbiKnn'fcirs much jn-fcrc-J
Groesback to Warren an J arranged to
take the state's delegation to the ex
ecutive mansion to back n|. his inser
tion. The opposition to Mr. Warren
grows partly out of factional Hepub
lican politics In Michigan and partly
out of personal misunderstandings be
tween Mr. Warren and Mrious Repub
lican leadera tn his own' state.
Other possible choices for the attor
ney generalship were aald to be Mr.
Beck. Blias Straws of Chicago, Secra
tary of the Navy Wilbur, Owen J.
Roberts of Philadelphia and Chief
Justice Arthur P. Itugg of the Massa
chusetts Supreme court.
XX7ORKING rapidly and smoothly,
the senate passed the appropria
tion bills (or the Interior and Agricul
tural departments and the combined
Treaaury-Poiit-Offlce measure. Only
slight t anges were made In any of
them. The house passed an emergen
cy deficiency bill carrying $157,000,000
for Immediate expenditure. Major
provisions of the bill, in addition to
the Inland Waterways corporation
Item, are $150,000,000, to be used In
refunding Internal rev«Mie taxes Ille
gally assessed and collected ; $3,501,200
for continuing work on dam No. 2 at
Muscle Shoals, Ala.; $275,000 for eradi
cating reported epidemics of bubonic
plague among rats at New Orleans and
Oakland, Gal., and $150,000 for repair
ing the coast guard cutter Manning.
During the discussion of this meas
ure It came out that the appropria
tions committee had turned down re
quests of the President for money to
pay the expenses of the St Lawrence
and the agricultural commissions, and
that Chairman Martin Madden bad
sharply questioned the legal right of
the President to appoint commissions
without the authorization of congress.
luTORE than a million farmers In 18
states were represented by lead
ers of the co-operative marketing
movement who gathered In Washlng
ton last week, and those leaders de
clared themselves opposed to any cod
dling by the government and emphati
cally against the proposal of the Cap
per-Williams bill to unite producers
and speculators Into one organization.
The men who dominate the national
council of farmers' co-operative mar
keting associations now ask only
that the government take up. In behalf
of co-operation, the introduction of a
senate resolution calling for an inves
tigation of alleged unfair tactics by
the American Tobacco company and
the Imperial Tobacco company (Brit
ish) against the Tobacco Growers' Co
operative association.
The Dearborn Independent has been
printing a series of articles designed
to show that the co-operative move
ment Is a plan of an international
group of Jews "to turn over to an or
ganized international Interest the en-
tire agricultural Industry of the. re
public." The magazine mentions the
names of Julius Rosen wald, Otto
Kahn, Bernard M. Baruch, Albert D.
I.asker, Eugene Meyer, Jr., and Aaron
Saplro. The last named Is counsel for
several of the cM>peratlve organiza
tions, and he has taken steps toward
bringing suit against Ford and others
for $1,000,000 for alleged libel. He
has mailed to Ford a formal demand
for a retraction within thirty days,
this being required by Michigan laws
as a preliminary to a libel suit.
TX7IDESPREAD disregard of the
" eighteenth amendment and vlo
latlops of the national and state pro
hibition laws led to the formation of
the national citizens' committee of one
thousand on law enforcement, which
last week concluded Its annual meet
ing In New York. It adopted resolu
tion! for presentation to the President
and the governors of the atates, and i
special committee carried these to
Washington, where It was entertained
by Mr. Coolldge at breakfast One of
the resolutions requested the President
and the governors to urge all officiate
"of every rank and claaalflcatlon, ap
pointive or elective, to Join tbem by
precept and personal example and, so
fsr aa they may by active participa
tion ID all administrative efforts. In
maintaining among the cltlzena of our
republic the high determination to
obey and enforce tflfc law of the land."
A wcond resolution "commends to
the people the United States, and
particular)/ to their official represen
tatives, the attitude of the President
In his obedience to the provisions of
the eighteenth amendment to the Con
stitution In the hope that the example
of the first citizen of our country may
Induce those who are now willfully
violating the prohibitory statute to ac
cept his leadership in conduct and In
dorse In practice the Integrity of his
fidelity to the supremacy of the law."
This same subject of dry law viola
tion has aroused some of the reform
ers In congress, because the testimony
In the divorce case of Representative
Scott of Michigan has brought oat Ute
alleged fact that various congressmen
are among the frequent offenders. Mr.
Upshaw of Georgia Intimates that an
effort may be made to expel from the
hous« those members who drink Intoxi
cating liquors.
CENATOR LADD of North Dakota,
** one of the four LaFollette sup
porters who were read out of the Re
publican party by the senate caucus,
found opportunity last week to de
nounce that action and to declare he
would not sutynlt to It. He said the
same method would have meant the
death of the Republican party In 1012.
Thereupon Senator Edge said the Re

On the Democratic side. Senator

For this he was hotly assailed by other
Democratic senators, and he asked

* I 'HE British Association for the Ad
vancement of Science met this year
In Toronto, Cacuda. This Is one of
the few times when tills dignified body
of English scientific men has met on
this side of the Atlantic. The presi
dent. Sir David Bruce, K. C. 8., T. R.
S., took for his presidential address,
the Important and practical subject,
"The Prevention of Disease."
Of all the instruments which the
tnlnd and Ingenuity of man has de
veloped, the microscope, he said, is the
most important. With it, In the last
50 years, the cause of almost all dis
eases caused by minute living things
has been discovered. But there are a
number of common and destructive dis
eases which are undoubtedly caused
by germs which have never been seen
by the human eye. This Is not because
they do not exist but probably be
cause tliey are so small that not even
the most powerful microscope is strong
enough to make them visible. Influ
enza, measles nnd scarlet fever have
all the peculiarities of germ diseases,
yet, so far, oo germs have been found
which are, beyond doubt, the causes
of these diseases. Smallpox is per
haps the most typical germ disease
known, yet no one has ever been able
to find Its cause. Foot-and-mouth dis
ease un»>ng animals Is clearly due to
some germ, yet no one knows what
it Is.
The generally accepted and prob
able explanation o( this strange situa
tion Is that the £erms responsible for
these diseases are not only too small
to be seen by the microscope but are
also so small lhat they will pass freely
through the finest filter made, and s«
cannot be "strained out," cultivated
and examined as can the larger and
more generally known germs.
An Invisible germ cannot be studied.
This means that until a germ Is made
visible, there Is no way of knowing
where It can be found In the body,
how It affects the vsrlous organs, how
It gets out of the body or in what form,
what It lives on outside the body,
#t>ether It Is carried by other animals
or Insects, how It gets back to the
human body and how It can be con
trolled and the Infection of healthy
persons be avoided.
One hundred year* ago, smallpox
and yellow fever were equally mysteri
ous. No one knew the cause of either
disease. No one knew whether they
were carried by animals or Insects,
whether contact with the sick person
would cause It.
Today, we know that only mosqui
toes can carry yellow fever, so we dis
regard everything else in controllng
this disease. We suspect everything
about a smallpox patient. Just as our
forefathers did 100 years ago.
Rome day, the germ of smallpox will
r>e found and then It will be as easy to
stamp out this disease as It is to con
trol yellow fever.
t ONO before tlie traninolMloo of
malaria by mosquitoes waa (llscov
.red, tt waa known that chllla and
fever dlaappeared in the fall after the
first froat and that no new caaea ap
peared nntll warm weather came the
next spring. We know now that cold
weather kllla the mosquitoes, so there
Is no way by which the dlaease can be
transmitted until tlie new feneration
of mosquitoes hatch out. But tbla rule,
like all-generallcatlona, haa exceptions.
Occasionally, there occurs In the
spring, long before the breeding sea
son for mosquitoes, a single caae of
malaria, what doctora call a "sporadic
Why do these solitary caaea occur
and how can they happen when there
were no moaqultoes present? They
would seem to prove that the mos
quito la not the cause of malaria.
But the easiest explanation la sot
always the right one. Careful study
of the blood of malaria patlenta proves
that the malaria bug can live all win
ter In the patient's blood, resting, In
active. without causing any symptoms,
hibernating, In fact, juat like the bear
which crawls Into a cave In the fall
and aleepa snug all winter. In the
spring, when all nature awakena and
when all forma of life begin to atlr and
grow, these malaria germa wake up.
What makes the germ which haa
slept all winter wake up wlien spring
comes? The same thing that makea
the grain of wheat, buried In tbs
ground In the fall and lying apparently
dead all winter, begin *o swell and
lend up shoots when spring comes.
Sunlight is the source of all growth
nnd life. It has the aame stimulating
eiTect on the malaria plant that It dees
nn the wheat plant.
We know much more about sunlight
than we used to and can now produce
in artificial light very much the same
as the natural product So Doctor
Helnhard decided to see If he couldn't.
liy artificial sunlight, hurry up the de
velopment of the sleeping malaria bugs
and get them started early enough to
cure the patient before the spring
malaria season opened. 80 he ex
posed his malaria patients to ultra
violet rays snd three-fourths of them
dad s chill In a few days. Then he
gave them quinine snd so killed tbs
malaria germs about a month In ad
vance. Just like bear hunters who
