British aviator climbing from wrecked plane to H. 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
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
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
