M. destroyer Umpire, The danger accompanying a trans-Atlantic flight will be reduced to a minimum by all governments by means of a string of naval vessels at in tervals of 100 or 200 miles along the route chosen. As the airplanes used will be equipped with wireless apparatus the pilots can summon aid should need arise. The photo shows how one British aviator came to prief while flying along the coast. His plane dropped in the water but the H. M. de stroyer Umpire, nearby, came to his rescue. Alopecia Seborrhoica Is Making Rapid Progress This is a delightful age for baJd-headed men. They have two new alibis. V.aldness is common among war veterans due to poison gas and tight-fitting sicel helmets. Or the bald-headed man can explain that he has just had flu; it c:;t.us-s the hair to fail out, though doctors say the condition is not permanent. Alopecia seborrhoica is on the increase. Physicians are much worried. So were we until we learned that it is only the highbrow name for premature hnMness. Are bald-headed men superior to the rest of us? Scientists claim that eventually man will reach a. high point of develop ment in which his body will be hairless. The Pliocene Man, who lived mil lions of years ago and was only a generation or two removed from the monkey, wa-s hairy all over like a dog. This scientific theory is backed up by the fact that the hairiest modern races are the Ta-smanlans and the native Australians the bushmen. j The subject of hair always has been a weakness with men and women. A man may be too busy to eat lunch without gulping it, but he is contented to wait a half hour in the barber shop to get his hair trimmed. If it begins vanishing, he loses interest in the peace conference and the tariff on vanilla beans, and labors with tonic. Lovely woman is never so happy as when brushing her locks for a few hours. Why is hair so expressive of vanity? Why are there no red-headed raceis? Does hair really turn gray from fright? Mysterious, indeed, is the grassy substance that sprouts from the fekull. Man apparently developed his antipathy to baldness at an early period. The Egyptians who built the pyramids had wigs borrowed the false-hair idea from the Asiatics. Long curled wigs were introduced by the courtiers of Louis XIV. They were aping their sovereign's abundant auburn hair. Hair is an outgrowth of the skin, same as the nails. Soft down, bristles, feathers, porcupine quills all these are forms of hair. Metchnikoff, the scientist who made buttermilk famous, also studied the ! subject of hair. His decision was that gray hair is caused by chromophagic I microbes, which eat the pigments that give the hair its rich blond, red or black j color. Why Metchnikoff should turn from buttermilk to hair, is not quite clear. Possibly he read the old joke about the goat swallowing a rabbit; there was a hare in the butter. Barbers originated when Roman armies discovered that a beard makes too good a hold for an enemy in battle. Anciently barbering was a profession allied to surgery. They did blood letting and pulled teeth. The striped pole in front of modern barber shops is a left-over from centuries ago, the red stripes symbolizing the ribbon used in bandaging an arm in the bleeding process. Eut the barber had an uphill job. His work was akin to that of a mis sionary. line smootn-snaven taccs nave neen xne ruie since tne eariy pare 01 I 1 hf ,ihtpnl h centnrv mu n fremientlv i nnnhle fn enntnin himslf lonjrer PLANE IS TUNED UP IN ENGLAND FOR TRANS-ATLANTIC FLIGHT f ' ' 1 v 'J -V 4 " !'

A BAROMETRIC VIOLIN and there breaks forth an epidemic of beard growing. Even as recent as 1107 the waiters of Paris called a strike because of a rule forbidding them to wear mustaches. I certain times it exhaled a stsange and j subtle fragrance, like an aroma of ! Oriental incense.
