OXYGEN INTAKE
TO PROLONG LIFE
Longer Life Seen For Older
People In Oxygen
Intake
ST. LOUIS (U.R)—Better health
and longer life for middle-aged
people may be achieved by
maintaining the proper level of
oxygen consumption in the body.
Physicians, working at St.
Louis City Infirmary in co-op
eration with Washington Univer
sity, believe old people may be
able to ward off the so-called
“old age’’ diseases if the proper
level is acnieveu.
On the basis of their study of
i,000 persons, the investigators
think the ideal oxygen consum
ing rate occurs during the first
ten years of life. The rate then
falls until the age of 24 and re
mains stable until age 45.
Then, according 10 men min
ings, is when the trouble begins.
They speculate that a dropping
rate of oxygen consumption indi
cates threat of a degenerative
disease.
When the rate begins to climb
again after age 45, the doctors
believe, it may be due to the
body’s fight against a degenera
tive ailment such as cancer or
heart disease.
The gerontologist—physicians
who study aging processes of the
body—therefore try to maintain
oxygen consumption at the 24
year age level, with special
diets and medical care they al
ready have reported “some pro
gress.”
13 Cats Don’t Count
NEW YORK (U.R)—Miss Tillie T
Trager complained in court that
her neighbor, Miss Marjorie Tre
vethan, had too manv cats. Ma
gistrate Frederick L. Strong
postponed sentence after Miss
Trevathan pleaded guilty to a
violation of the sanitary code,
but explained that she never had
more than 13 cats in her apart
,ment at one time.

Henry Eight Might Roll In
Grave At Elizabeth’s Plans
By ROBERT MUSEL
United Press Staff
Correspondent
LONDON, —(U.R)— In the state
apartments of the dusty red brick
palace Henry VIII built as a
London residence four centuries
ago, officials of the royal house
hold are busy cataloguing.
They are displaying hundreds
of presents sent for the wedding
Nov. 20 of Princess Elizabeth,
heiress presumptive to the throne,
and Lieut. Philip Mountbatten.
It will not be the sort of wed
ding flamboyant Henry VIII
would have approved. For in
the simplicity and dedication to
“austerity,” the marriage of the
21-year-old royal princess and
her handsome former prince of
Greece is unprecedented.
It perhaps will be one of the.
plainest weddings of any heir to
a throne in modern times. King
George himself, anxious that
the royal family share all of his
people’s hardships, has rejected
any effort to make the marriage
a great state occasion.
It would seem as incredible
in the fairy tales as it dcres in
real life that a princess of the
House of Windsor would have
to worry about a wedding trous
seau, that she woould have to
appeal to the Board of Trade
for additional clothing coupons,
that — and this is no secret —
part of her honeymoon costume
would consist of her mother’s
worn clothes adapted to fit her
own figure.
King To Give Toast
The wedding breakfast—
always a grand affair in the
past—will be noteworthy only
for the toast to the bride and
bridegroom offered by the King.
The Ministry of Food has not
been asked for additional rations.
Thus the plain menu will include
a fish dish, toast, sandwiches
and liquors. Henry VIII, whose
gargantuan appetite happily
coincided with an era of a dozen
meat courses per meal, would
hardly bother to peck at the se
verely simple offering.
Nor will Elizabeth and her con
sort sail grandly away in a
battleship on a honeymoon to
distant places. King George’s
subjects are in the main con
fined to their little island by the
new exchange restrictions and
he has suggested a honeymoon
within the homeland. They pro
bably will stay at the castles or
homes of friends or relatives—
possibly fabled Glamis Castle in
Scotland, scene of Shakespeare’s
“Macbeth,” where Elizabeth's
mother was born.
For the wedding itself some of
the lesser state coaches will be
used in the brief drive from
Buckingham Palace along the
Mall, Whitehall and to the Ab
bey. The route will be lined with
soldiers of regiments in which
Elizabeth holds honorary rank
and some navel detachments be
cause of Philip's active service in
the navy.
There will be no grandstands
