HOW NERVOUS BREAKDOWN
Dr. Cooper Says ThiWigh Proper Health
Habits in 'Childhood.
Minneapolis. June 20.—Nervous break
down in adult life may be prevented
through proper health habit formation in
childhood was explained by Dr. Olive A.
Cooper, assistant director of the Messa
chuwetts division of mental hygiene, be
fore the nurses of the National Tuber
culosis Association today. "The man
ner in which the child is taught to handle
simple problems of childhood,” said the
speaker, “molds his habits and ability
to meet the more complicated adult sit
Dr. Cooper cited as examples the child
who is continually manifesting capric
iousness about his food and is constantly
finding fault and developing tantrums as
a means of gaining his end. “Trivial
as these habits may seem,” continued
Dr. Cooper, “we follow the child through
life and we find him in manhood insuf
ficiently prepared to meet the physical,
■>conomieal or social requirements of life.
He goes forth expecting the solicitude
from the world that he was accustomed
to. receive in his home, and continuing
to react to greater problems as he did
to problems which confronted him in
childhood. Then finally realising the
inadequacy of these reactions, kite 'is in
many instances unprepared to face real
ity and seeks an exit in "a nervous break
down. These relatively simple habits
evident in childhood are capable of doing
an immeasurable amount of damage to
the patients’ physicial and mental life
if allowed to continue unchecked. The
future health of the adult may depend
in a large measure on the way in which
he was trained as a child.”

AMUDSEN WORN BY FUTLE
BATTLK WITH ARCTIC ICE
Ellsworth, Who Saved Two Men From
Polar Sea, Hailed as Hero of Expedi
Oslo, Norway, June 22.—The Dag
bladet printed a non-copyright story out
lining some of the experience of the
Amundsen North Pole expendition. The
newspaper said the story was based on
messages from the expedition’s journ
“In narrating their story on arriving
at King’s Bay,” says, the Dagbladet, “the
fliers, all of whom. Rooked 'worn and thin
from suffering, said their weeks upon the
ice was like a flight with death.”
Regarding the picking up of the mem
bers of the expendition by the fishing
boat ' SjoeHv, which brought them to
King’s Bay, the Dagbladet’s story says:
“The fishing boat Sjoeliv is a small cut
ter of twelve tons, with a crew of nine
men. Her captain is Nils Woolan.
The vessel had had a poor catch of fish
and was hunting for a..wounded walrus.
When off Huggle Bay, on the north side
of Spitzbergen. the crew heard motors
purring and discovered aiii airplane ten
“They at 'first thought it was an air
plane from t(je patrol expedition, but
when it snenred they immediately recog
nized Amundsen, in spite of his long
Men Board Ship.
“The explorers all quickly, got aboard
the Sjoeliv and crowded into the small
berths. There was not much food for
so many—only seal. beef, cider and eggs.
The hawser towing the airplane broke
once, but a new one held.
“As Amundsen was told that the pa
trol expedition was ready to leave Hug
gle Bay, he decided to make for King's
Bay as fast as possible and leave the
plane. Woolan says this was the great
est catch he had made in his fifteen
years’ experience in these regions."
Amundsen said that the members of
the expedition were separated for a
while and that Leif Dietrichsen (Nor
wegian pilot of one of the planes) and
Oskar Omdahl (Norwegian mechanician)
fell in the wate rand were just saved
from drowning by Lincoln Ellsworth.
Meanwhile Amundsen and Hjalmar Uis
erlarsen (Norwegian plane pilot) were on
the other side of the water, They heard
them scream, but were unable to help,
as thin ice proven H-d efforts at rescue.
The story says the returned members
of the Polar expedition got to bed late
the following morning at King's Bay.
The participation of Ellsworth in the
expedition, says the newspaper, was not
due to his love of adventure, but to in,
spiration and scientific spirit.
The American minister Laurits Swen
son, said today that the news of Amund
sen’s happy return would be hailed land
cheered throughout the United States.
America had groat sympathy for Amund
sen and admired his Viking audacity and
ability as an explorer.
"“We, of course,” the minister declared,
“are doubly interested because an Ameri
can made it possible for Amundsen to get
the expedition going, and because lie
took part personally in the hardships of
the expedition. We ave glad the name
of "Ellsworth is so closely linked with the

NEW AIR PROPELLER
STUDIED BY FORD
Claimed Self-Feathering Blades Will Lift
Plane Straight Up From Ground.
Detroit, June 22.—The invention of
James A. Horne, of Estes Park, Col., of
a self-feathering aircraft padd'.e wheel
propeller of four variable thrusts is being
tested here at the suggestion of Judge
Ben B. Lindsey, of Denver, by the Ford _
areonautioal interests and engineers 1
. the aircraft development corporation. 1
j An electiraclly operated model has fg _
traeted scores of experts to Horne's suite
•in the Book-Cadillao Hotel. It has also
been demonstrated before General Mason
M. Patrick, chief of the air service, and
Admiral Moffatt, chief of the navy bu
reau of aeronautics, and 150 officers,
pilots and engineers at Washington.
I - On Cantilever Principle. ' _ 1
j Horne’s air propulsion system consists
of units of two or more pairs of rovolv
. ing blades geared to a single engine of a
given power desired for a certain speed
; and service. They are operated fore and ,
aft in the direction of the line of flight
! much like the paddles of an o'.d-time
| side wheel steamboat.
| The two blades of a unit are mounted
on the side of the plane and opposite
' each other on arms extended from a een-
I ter revolving shaft, both forward and aft
lof the wings. Their horizontal shafts
Inin crosswise of the fuselage.
Tlie propellers are mounted outboard
on the cantilever principle. Change of
direction of thrust while the propellers
are running is obtained by separate gear
control through the center of the cross
arms, changing the slant of the pairs of
paddles which revolve in ffn arct ,around
a horizontal shaft.
Blades Under Control.
The blades are always under complete
control, whether at a standstill or when
rotating at full speed, without reversing I
or stopping the engine, and can be made j
to thrust the aircraft forward, backward,
upward or downward.
William B. Stout, president of the
State Metal Aeroplane Company at the
Ford air port, the entire output of which
factory has been taken over by the Fords,
lias inspected the new propulsion system,
with expert mechanics in the factory, and
pronounced in favor of it.
Horne has worked on his invention
fourteen years and believes it is ready
now for commercial use and production. >
