ITALIAN SCULPTOR WILL TVIAKE
A WESTERN TOUR
New York. Prince Paul Troubetz
koy, Italian sculptor and brother-in-law
of the American -writer, Amelia
Elves, has come to America to study
western life with a view to reproduc
ing it in marble.
The Italian prince is an ardent
vegetarian and he proclaims.his faith
in meatless diet in a group called
"The Corpse Eaters" a man devour
ing a beef roast,, and a hyena tearing
the flesh of a man.
WHY IS IT?
Why does a tree grow straight up
instead of sideways?
It's easy enough to answer that's
the best way for a tree to grow, but
why is it the best way?
Let us see. First of all the roots
of the tree are evenly distributed in
the ground, and there's much less
strain .on- them if the tree grows
straight up a tree accidently twisted
puts a great strain on its roots, and it
can't make much of a stand against
a hurricane. - -- .,-.
Also, ' if the 'trunk" of the tree is
straight the branches "which are
thrown out evenly on all sides will
balance it and make it strong in time
of storm. By growing straight the
tree has space on all sides for its
branches, and a chance to get plenty
of air and sunlight which is the food
on which the tree lives.
