GALVANIZING AN OLD THEORY
Ilcnds to the North, Toes to the
South, Insures Sound and
Experiments are now being conducted
at Columbia university to prove tho
truth of the theory that people who slncp
with their heads pointing toward the
north magnetic pole and their feet toward
the south sleep more soundly than those
who sleep otherwise.
"Do you sleep well?"
"Are you in perfect health?"
If not, you had better box the compass
before retiring. Every man, woman and
child in this 'broad land ahou'st turn his
or her bed around until the head points
north and the foot south. Thon only
will his or her sleep be as deep and sound
as possible, all .other things being equal.
Then only will he or she arise with nerves
rested and with proper tone to tho en
"Nonsense, rot," you say. Yet experi
ments at Columbia university seem to
bear out this theory, which is almost as
old as tho hills.
Dr. Walter J. Clarke of 224 West Seven-
ty-socond street, one of the best known
exponents of the use of electricity, not
only for the euro of diseases, but for
the soothing effect It-has on overworked
or tired nerves. Is a firm believer of this
"Tho truth of this theory, which Is a
very old one, has been demonstrated
thousands of times," says Dr. Clarke.
"But It Is only just recently that scien
tific proof has, been produced. Wo now
understand why It Is so. By electrical
stimulation ot the nerve fibers one can
either rest them or make them healthy,
If diseased. Many diseases that were
formerly treated by the giving of drugs
are now cured by electricity. There is no
doubt that sleeping with the had to the
north Is beneficial."
Thomas A. Edison docs not toko much
stock in the theory, however. "It's
simply a matter of sett-hypnosis," be de
clares. "If a ' nervous person thinks he
will sleep better headed dua north it Is
well for htm to do so. I find I can sleep
well no matter what direction I'm headed
If I can only get to bed."
The research work at Columbia univers
ity under Prof. O. V. Wendel has brought
out the fact that d'Arsonval, a French
scientist who lived in tho eighteenth cen
tury, experimented along these lines and
found that people who slept with trfelr
heads pointing to the north magnetic
pole slept more soundly than those
whose heads pointed In other directions.
His experiments were made from 1715 to
1730. He" explained the phenomena on the
theory that in all the hundreds of cases
studied by him the flow of the mag
netic current going on all the time over
the earth's surface from the north mag
netic to the south magnetic pole Induced
a weak current of electricity In the bed
on which those who were being observed
slept, the principle being exactly he sam
as electrical current Is now generated it
