New Discoveries Reported to
Convention Tell of Means of
h Universal Destruction.
th- Aaeoci.ted Prwa.
ITHACA, N. Y, September If.—
IXT, p4cric arid and other high
explosives, it is asserted, will be
Shot off with greater speed and make
w.ir more deadly as the result of the
Invention of a new booster detonator
of wide application in both peace and
■War, described today before the
American I'hemical Society by the
Inventor, Bennett Grotta of Tam
aqua, Pa,
The time of explosion, of TNT
Under any c.ireuinstanoea is Infini
tesimal. it was explained. By the
use of the new detonator it is pos
sible, it is declared, to produce the
time of explosion still further.
The future of automotive transpor
tation in America, T. A. Boyd of Pay
ten, Ohio, declared, depends essen
tially upon progress in the cracking
of petroleum.
Inrreawc Engine Efficiency.
"Tt is possible." said Mr. Boyd,
**that within the next few years the
efficiency of internal combustion
engines may be tremendously in
creased. At present, under the most
* favorable conditions the utilization
•f gasoline for automobile is less l
than Ir. per cent efficient.
"A gallon of gasoline contains
enough energy to run a. flivver 450
miles on a level paved road if it
were possible to utilize ail of the
energy that could be obtained by
burning this amount of gasoline.”
Terrors dwarfing those of the recent
world conflict will be imposed by wars
of the future, and there will be no
refuge from death and torture, de
clared Ur. Ijco Hendrick Baekeland,
I resident of the society, pleading for
" a greater week-day religion of
•b eds" in his annual address delivered
last night.
I.lmit Not Reached.
"Any one acquainted with the later
development of means of scientific
destruction knows that the limit has
not yet been reached,” he said, "and
that in future wars no one will find
a snug place where he may think he
is safe or can escape the conse
quences. The largest and best pro
tected cities, irrespective of their size
or distance, will be exposed continu
ously to destruction and mutilation.
There will be no way of safeguard
ing women or children or the old or
the infirm.
But the remedy to these horrors
lies not in stopping the use of chem
istry in warfare. . . . The greater
remedy seems to lie in more of a
plain, generous, week-day religion
rather than a Sunday religion of
Or. Baekeland pleaded that ihem
i'-ts not be blamed for their part in
'ihe waging of wars, which he de
clared were not of their making.
The role of chemistry essentially is
constructive, the speaker said, and
asserted that the conservative field
has never been more promising than
today. He suggested that science
may solve the mysteries of gland
solution and become a factor in the
elimination of poorhouses and lunatic
Kansas Editor Sends Petitions to.
Size Up Sentiment Against
Ku Klux Klan. i
By the Associated Press.
KMI’OKIA, Kan., September 11.—
At illiam Allen White, Emporia edi
tor, yesterday sent out independent
nominating petitions to place his
name and that of State Senator Carr
TV. Taylor on the November ballot
as candidates for Governor and
1-iieutenant Governor of Kansas, re
In a statement announcing the
sending out of the petitions, Mr.
White said it was done to test public]
sentiment as to the action of Ben
Paulin, Republican gubernatorial
candidate in “practically allying the
Republican party in Kansas with the
Ku Klux Klan.”
If the petitions are returned with
sufficient names and “if there is aj
feeling among the people of Kansas!
that an independent ticket for lieu- I
tenant governor and governor should'
be filed to oppose the Republican
candidates supported by the Ku Klux
Klan,” Mr. White's statement said,
"Mr. Taylor and I will, of course,
gladly make the fight.”

! After 40 years In the limelight
after 35 years as a stage star—l
still look a girl of 19. The thou

still employ. They

I have kept in

tific progress, and
In 20 years it has

Hopper 4o6 Today I have
Plwto 1923 what experts call
• the last word in facial clay. It is
| white, refined and dainty. And It
embodies many new discoveries.
'Until I obtained this I never knew
■ 'one-tenth what clay could do.
! Now lam supplying this clay to
I others. 1 call it my White Youth
i Clay. All druggists and toilet
counters have it—exactly the clay
f use. And I am stating its results
to girls who want more beauty
and to women who want youth.
My White Youth Clay purges the
skin of all that clogs and mars it.
It draws out the causes of black
heads and blemishes. It brings
the blood to the skin to nourish
and revive it. The result is a rosy
; afterglow which amazes and de
i lights. Many women seem to drop
I ten years with one application.
It firms the skin, combats all linn and
wrinkles, reduces enlarged pores. No girl
i or woman who once enjoys its results will
ever go without if.
I want you to know what it does. My
good fortune obtained it for me. I was
i fsmous as a beauty, so every expert
sought to give me the greatest aid to
; beauty. Now I wish to bring like bene
, fits to millions.
Write me for my Beauty Book and I'll
j send with it something else to please you.
