BERNE, Nov. 14. Switzerland has

Dr. George lefevre Says Experiments
Prove Theory of Heredity.
"Mental traits are inherited; we
are not all alike to begin with. The
Government realizes this and is test
ing men for war service, especially
aviation, on this theory. Some day
educators will also apply a psycho
logical and physical test to find out
the capacity of students and help
them follow the course of study for
which they are best qualified."
This Is the statement of Dr. George
Lefevre in his lecture on "The Inher
itance of Mental Traits" Friday night
in the Y. M. C. A. Auditorium before
the Medical Society.
Scientific investigations have
shown that persons are born with
certain capacities. Dr. Lefevre said.
Abilities cannot be created. All that
can be done is to develop the poten
tialities with which persons are
"Man is the creator of the mind,
some think," he said, "but it Is not
so. We do not all start the same.
We begin at different levels."
Doctor Lefevre brought up the
question of heredity and environment.
He said that the query as to which
Is the greatest factor in a person's
life is as ridiculous as asking which
Is the most important, the food or
the stomach. Given a certain hered
ity, a person's environment helps
bring out his potentialities. A bean
climbs, he said, not because a stick
is put by it; the stick gives it the op
portunity to climb. A stick put near
a cabbage would not make It climb.
Statistics that have been taken on
twins, and father and sons tend to
show, he said, that mental traits are
inherited. Investigations on feeble
mindedness and insanity tend to prove
that they are inherited as "recess
Ives." E. E. Brown gae a talk on "A
Phase of Carbohydrate Metabol
ism." He said that the reaction of
fats and proteins on puppies fed with
carbohydrates was to change the ac
tion of the different functions of the
body in order to bring them to an

Slayers of Phil Carpenter, Former Stu

Walter Mills and Ed Porter, two
Boonville negroes who were sentenc
ed to the penitentiary last April for
killing Phil Carpenter, are to be tried
again at the January term of court.
Phil Carpenter, who the negroes were
charged with killing, was a former stu
dent In the University, and while here
worked as a printer at the Herald-
Statesman Publishing Company. The
new trial comes as the result of a de
cision made by the Supreme Court last
week in which the case was reversed.

In anticipation of having to struggle

a month the Swiss government has
cut to the bone the railroad traffic,
raised rates and made it so difficult
and so expensive to travel that only

The movies, cabarets and variety
theatres must close at least twelve
days out of each month. The tempera
ture of theaters or of hotels must not
exceed a certain degree. Restaurants
and cafes have to lop off the best two
hours of their business by early clos
ing, and are forbidden to serve warm
meals before nine in the morning.
If coal were Switzerland's only
shortage, she would face the winter

she is running short of food all along

in some measure Switzerland will
soon have to drop to 100 grams a day.
The economic department of the
government has just issued a circular
calling attention to the fact that, in
addition to a shortage of coal and
wheat,there is all too little cooking
fats and oils on hand. In some dis
tricts they have disappeared al
together. Foreign potatoes are to be
had only in two cantons, Berne and
Basel, and even wood is scarcer than
it .ever has been.
So Switzerland is trimming its
economic sails as rapidly and as
drastically as it may. It isn't the
easiest task In the world, and is the
harder because there is political op
position to every move, made by, the
government. President Schulthess
