PUBLICITY FOR PORT PLANS The Jersey Journal, of Jersey City, thinks it is about time that the Port of New York Authority had its plans pre pared for the development of the Port of New Y’ork as a whole, so that the people may be given a chance to examine them and understand them before they are submitted to the legislatures of New York and New Jersey for acceptance. There is reason in the Jersey Journal's argument. Such a tremendous project as this port development is going to be ought not to be jammed down the people’s throats in any high handed manner. Those who have had an opportunity to examine the plans of the port authority know what an elaborate scheme it is. To carry out the full project will probably cost to a hundred million dollars. It is quite evident that this vast sum of money has got to come from the taxpayers in two states—probably only from those within the port district. If the people are going to be asked to put up such an amount as this, they, naturally, want to know all about the project. As the tentative plans stands today, the most expensive feature of the port development is the underground auto matic electric railroad system intended to relieve the eon jestion on Manhattan island. This tunnel system is most comprehensive in its detail and, from what can be gained from the commissioners who are drawing up the plans, the port development seems to center around it. The primary purpose of this port development scheme, as we understand it, is to relieve congestion and modernize the Port of New Y ork. But the congestion in the port is an entirely different thing from the congestion in Manhattan. The way to relieve the congestion in the port is to spread out and we take it that the purpose of including all this sec tion within the Port of New York is to give room to spread out and still keep within the port. The idea is that when shippers from the interior are exporting goods they can send their goods by rail to some other section of the port to be loaded on steamers instead of sending them to the already congested section about Manhattan island. Likewise, in im porting goods, the vessels carrying cargoes destined to inland cities can come to docks and unload within the Port of New Y’ork and yet not be compelled to go to the piers at Manhat tan or Brooklyn, as they must do at present in order to find the necessary accommodations. This is a problem that ail tne municipalities witnm the port district can be interested in because they can all do their part to help relieve the congestion. But the congestion .ttun island, involving distribution through truck le like, is something that is purely local- Manhat lo take care of her own congestion within her own limits just as Perth Amboy, Newark and every other city within the port district is expected to take care of its own local problems. As a matter of fact, if Manhattan were re lieved of much of the so-called “through freight” bound to or from interior points, there would be a whole lot more room on her piers for her own local freight so that the problem of distribution on the island itself would thereby , be partly solved. The point we are interested in is whether or not New Jersey, or even that part of New Jersey included within the port district, is going to be compelled to help pay for the relief of the congestion in Manhattan. As the automatic electric railroad, which forms such an important part of the port development plans is designed almost entirely to re lieve the congestion on Manhattan island, it would seem as if that is something that should be tirianced entirely by Man hattan, or at least by New York, exclusively. We are willing to bear our share of the whole port development to relieve congestion in the port, but we object to being taxed to relieve the congestion In distribution on Manhattan island. These are points that ought to be thoroughly explained to the people before they are asked to pass upon them. These things ought to be brought out before the matter is vsubmitted to the legislatures for final adoption or rejection. ^ he matter is so important and means so much to the future of this entire section that every detail ought to be fully ex plained. The time to lay the facts before the people is before the legislatures meet so that the representatives in the legis latures can get the sentiment of the people in order to pass upon the report with some degree of intelligence. To with hold such a comprehensive report until the legislature is in the midst of all kinds of legislation with only a few weeks left of the session to consider the matter and expect the plans to be adopted forthwith is asking too much. There is much merit in the port development scheme and something along the lines as laid out must be done if the Port of New York is to maintain its supremacy. But when manv millions of dollars are involved, all of which must be furnished by the people, it is only fair that the peo ple have ample time to consider the project in detail before they are finally adopted. Of course, if the people are too indifferent to consider them even when given an opportunity they have no ground for complaint if they finally get some thing they do not want. What is needed now is the final; report of the Port of New York Authority laid before the people at the earliest possible date. CONSERVE THE FORESTS Lumber is being cut in the United States at the rate of j 33,798,800.000 feet a year. That is equivalent to a plank four inches wide, two inches tick and forty feel long, for each man. woman and child. Seems like a small amount. But picture a procession, of' 106,000,000 people, each walking out of the woods with a plank like that, and you realize that forests are being de stroyed faster than they are growing. T^be day whep lumber will be as scarce as hen’s teeth i* not far in the future, unless the nation stops its forest; destruction or replapts a tree for each one cut down. WATCH DOCTORS NEEDED, HASKIN SAYS Dully Letter by Frederic J. Ilaskln WASHINGTOX, Oct. 31:—Horol ogy' is going to be added to the list of professions. By getting it recog nized as a learned location, on the same plane as pulling teeth or de fending and prosecuting criminals, the Horological Institute of America hopes that some embryo dentists and lawyers will be deflected to horology. It is promised that they will find less competition, and more chance of service in this neglected field. Perhaps it should be explained that an horologist is not a crystal gazer, but a watchmaker. The term is going to become more familiar in the future, because the new Horo logical Institute has decided that it is a title preferable to that of watch maker. It might also be explained that a watchmaker is not a man who makes watches. At one time he was. But now, when watches are made in a factory, the employe who makes a certain wheel for thousands of timepieces generally has no claim to the title of watchmaker. That name is reserved for the man who knows the anatomy of a watch as a surgeon knows the human body. The watch maker repairs watches and designs new models. The country needs 4,000 more of these horologists than it has, and the public is suffering accordingly, though it may not realize it. You may have noticed that getting a watch repaired of late years is a difficult undertaking. You take the watch to a watch doctor, and he returns it in time—generally a much longer time than you expected. It might have been fixed. Or, again it might not. In this latter case, you try this doctor again, or you try an other. Watchmakers who can cor rectly diagnose the trouble in a watch without proceeding by the trial of error method are scarce. This is a serious situation because the time we carry is inevitably less accurate than it would be i£ the country had the proper number of expert watch repairers. In the ag gregate we are wasting enormous amounts of time through the decline of punctuality. With many individuals a close ac curacy in a timepiece is not regard ed as necessary, though almost everyone has to catch trains and meet important engagements at times. With the railroad man, on the other hand, a watch that is un reliable may mean death or injury to scores of persons. itnilrouu lime vital There are 2,000,000 of these rail road timepieces that have to be kept to no more than 30 seconds er ror in a week. At the recent horo logical conference it was pointed out that while there are some excellent horologists, there are l'ar too few who are capable of repairing a time piece so important as a railroad watch. And there are undoubtedly some doing this work vyho are not qualified. To improve conditions in the hor ologieal industry, the Horological Institute of America has been form ed. it has just held its second con ference, and agreed on its program. It lias desired that watchmakers go back to the standards of former years when the designer and repair er of timepieces was regarded as an artist and a learned man. Watch making was recognized as a difficult art and it consequently attracted many promising young men. Now the boy or girl who wants a career rarely thinks of this old art. Horology requires more study and receives less financial reward than other professions, and so it is passed over. At present it is not classed with the professions, and students refuse to spend two years or more mastering a vocation that is general ly classed as a trade. Most people do not realize that the man who fixes their ailing time pieces is, or should be, a highly trained technician. To repair a rail road watch a watchmaker should not only be thoroughly familiar with its mechanism and himself an expert craftsman, but he should know something of physics and metal lurgy. Knowledge of these subjects and also of astronomy and trigo nometry can be used by the expeit watchmaker in his work. Fewer and fewer students are en tering the schools of horology. One watch factory in New England ex perimented with the idea of filling the depleted ranks of the watch makers from the high schools. Stu dents In the senior year were offered the chance of spending half of their time in the watch factory, with credit for study there. This was intended to Interest stu dents in the work, so that they would enter the factory or a school of horology when they graduated. The plan did not work. A represent ative of the company told the Hor oiogical Institute that the boys were more strongly attracted by the short courses that would tit them for more remunerative trades. The Horological Institute hopes to interest more students in the pro fession of horology, where, it says, chances for advancement are good. It also hopes to improve salaries. The institution hopes also to raise the standard of repair work, and to encourage research work in order to advance our technique of watch making. Certified Watchmakers This is to be dope by certifying watchmakers. No watchmaker will be required tq take an examination. But those who wish to be certified will be given a chance to take a test. This'test will probably be prepared by the Time Section of the Bureau of Standards. The watchmaker wiil be given a watch to repair and will be asked questions to test his under standing of the work. Three examinations for three grades are to be given, according to the institute's decision. These will he for “certified junior watchmaker," “certified w-atchmaker,” and "certi fied horologist.” The man who passes the first .trade test—the last named—must be a specialist. Such a man is an engineer in horology, and the fact that he deals with springs and screws that are almost invisible, in stead of with iron girders, makes his work no less technically exacting. The tests are to be of value to the public in that a certificate from the Horological Institute should be a sign of ability. On the other hand, as the tests are not compulsory, lack of a certificate will not imply incom petence. The tests are also designed to pro mote the interests of the watchmak ers themselves. They will know that by taking these tests and perhaps studying to gain the higher certifi cates, they can earn more money and a reputation for greater skill. Members of the Horological Insti tute have said that the work of their organization now is chiefly for the future. Men who have been earning their livings for years do not always take kindly to examinations and cer tificates—though the institute has found that Us own members from big watch companies and repair shops are willing to stand the tests for the example of the thing. The certificates will be of most interest to young students of horol ogy who will be encouraged to study longer and become more expert, in stead of accepting the poorly paid jobs that are offered when they are half way through a course. BY GISTAVK LK BOX Xntrd French Philosopher and Au thor of "PsjrcltoloKjr «>f Crowds.” LONDON. Nov. 3.—Crime waves are all a matter of mental contagion. Tne phenomenon of mental conta gion is as old as the world. Cases in history are without num ber—terrors of the millenlum, mys tic hallucinations, massacres, politi cal or religious, the frenzy for duets, the bath of blood attending revolu tionary guillotines, suicides in the so-called romantic epoch of the last ccgtury. Nihilism under the Russian czars and bolshevism of today are nothing other than phenomena of mental contagion. A man who yawns sets his neigh bors R-yawnlng. A smile calls forth smiles. Tears are likewise infec tious. Frenzied speculation which tcaehed fantastic heights about 1919 1920 also proceedeil from mental contagion. The fall In prices will be largely determined by the same moral factor. Attempt* at crime due to mental contagion are not sensibly dimin ished becauso of the punishment in flicted ujipn their perpetrators. . Mchtal contagion acts upon people in a state of receptive criminality. The microbe of came, like that of grip or typhoid, takes effect upon or ganisms ready for infection. Perhaps tho worst of mental con tagions can be the mistaken indul gence of juries and courts. To give freedom to people without any other means of existence than theft or as sassination is simply to encourage tho worst of crime waves. To cure criminal contagion It is necessary to use the contagion of fear. Tho duel disappeared from Kngland the day it was known that the survivor of a contest would be hung as a murderer. Can humanity be preserved entire ly from mental contagion? Vain hope! Book at the tyranny fashion exercises upon the fair sex. All wom en will tell you that their hat or their dress is' undomfortable, that their decollete can be fatal to health, nnd that their high heels are un; hygienic. But they would not give them up for anything, so long as fashion decrees that they shall wear them. How then can you expect that men —sons of the daughters of Kvc— shall ever be free from the mental and hereditary contagion? I Learn One New Thing Every Day BULLETINS BY THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY THK EVOUTIOX OP FIKK FIGHTING The passing of the fire horses from Manhattan Island and the in stallation of a high pressure water system in Boston to eliminate even the fire engine are further steps in the stage of progress from the ro mantic days of the picturesque old hand-tubs,” says a bulletin from the Washington, D. C., headquarters of the National Geographic Society. “Some remember when citizens tricked themselves out in red shirts and glazed caps and carried torches in the front of a procession or form ed part of the bodyguard of the gal lant old tub as it paraded the streets on a gala occasion. Then passion for fire fighting ran to a high pitch and arguments were waged about the merits of partic ular engines. Today the throbs of a motordriven engine are taking the place of those heart throbs. The horses that might have clat tered from their stalls, glided be neath their harness, and raced glo riously through the drizzly aight darkened streets before the lire spitting demon are drawing farm wagons or plowing the fields. ”ln those days communities were dependent upon volunteers, and men from all social ranks gave valuable time to qualify themselves for the service. “Fire fighting in some sort of or ganized form is ancient. Ma chines for throwing water from a distance were known, according to our first clear evidence, in the sec ond century before Christ. Heron of Alexandria, two hundred years before the Christian era, in an old manuscript which has escaped de struction, described an hydraulic machine used in Egypt during the time of the Ptolemies. It was com posed of two brass cylinders resting on a wooden base with pistons fitted into them—in its principles practi cally like our present engine. Like most other knowledge, this was lost in the dark ages which followed. "The Ron«ns had squads of men port and maintenance of the same.’ This ordinance states in its pream ble that ‘In all well regulated ci ties and corporations, it is custom ary that fire buckets, ladders and hooks, are in readiness at the cor ners of the streets, and in public houses for the time of need.’ Im agine the modern Manhattan so equipped! Buckets hung out on Broadway corners would in num ! ber run close second to the bulbs | on its electric signs. “Boston had the first regular fire company under municipal control In this country in 1678. Before this date, however, the sturdy Boston ians had buckets and ladders in their meeting house and Imposed a penalty for their use except in the case of fire. George Braithwaite, an English man. first conceived the steam fire engine, which so definitely marked the next stage of progress in fire fighting. Scoffers jeeringly called his invention a ‘steam squirt,’ and •kitchen stove,* but it came to stay, unless such steps as Boston’s inno vation in installing a high pressure water system drives it into a ro mantic past.” # ' ' xuivx ah xxaiuat;, vr xx^:il vases, to the scene of an outbreak where It was projected onto the lire by those in charge of the ‘si phones' or hand pumps. The pre cise nature of this instrument has not been determined, but from specimens found in excavations it must have been much like the old fashioned syringe used by garden* ers. These large organizations, of men gave the Roman authorities trouble by their turbulence. Tra jan, the Roman Emperor, and Pliny, at that time one of his, gov ernors, had long and serious cor respondence over the advisability of organizing fire departments in the cities under Pliny's jurisdiction, leading to the conclusion that such groups would attain sufficient strength to be a menace to the gov ernment. "Mention is made of the medieval use of forcing pumps as fire engines at Augsburg in 1518. England and the countries of the continent were using hand squirts and syringes at this time. America took her ideas from the English adapting them to her peculiar needs. At first the col onists were content with preventive measures, but these scarcely had any effect upon the chimneys, built of wood, generally used by the early inhabitants. “Before the English flag flew over Manhattan an old Dutch ordinance directed the burgomasters to de mand from every house money for the purpose of ordering from the mother country leather fire buckets, fire ladders and fire hooks, ‘and once a year, to demand for every chimney one guilder for the sup Science Service Ii If you have blue eyea, broad head, narrow brow, long chin, firm mouth and prominent nose— Then you have the typijal feat ures of the inventor. The accompanying composite photograph of famous American scientists was analyzed in the cur rent issue of Popular Science : -Monthly, by Dr. Katherine Black I ford, expert in character reading. The significant features charac terizing the inventive genius are the prominent, well modeled nose, the strong jaw and the peculiar shape and breadth of the head. The immediate sign of the inven tor lies in the long chin and square jaw, which indicate unsual resolu tion and tenacity. The general expression of the composite face, according to Dr. Blackford, is that of a likeable hu man personality. The mouth is sen sitive as well as firm. "This typical inventor is not one to be era|ky or sour, or to fly into petty rages over trifles. He has hope, optimism and faith. "One of the most striking things about the face is not evident in the photograph. Practically all of the men included in the picture are blonds and nearly all of them have blue or gray eyes.” Notice the narrow brows, and that the head broadens above them until its greatest width comes at a point fully an inch above. Note also the width of the head above the ears. It is this feature, chiefly, accord ing to Dr. Blackford, that stamps the composite portrait as that of a scientist of the creative type. The composite view was made by printing in registry on a single piece of sensitized paper the 16 por traits of the following men: Henry Ford, Elwood G. Haynes, Hiram P. Maxim, Thomas A.

The quicker the milking the richer tho milk, provided the work is done well and completely. Q. What is meant by "point blank range?" What is the "point blank range” of a Springfield rifle? —O. 8. O. A. The Ordnance Department says that the term "point blank” range ol a rifle means the point at which the bullet Is lo'-ated where it is at the same elevation as when it leaves the muzzle of the rifle after the rifle has been fir'd. The "point bl^jtk range” of the Springfield rifle is at a distance of 339 yards front the muzzle. Q. What Is the blue peter?—O. H. A. A. The blue peter Is a flag that . is raised by shi|>a as a sailing sig- I nal. It is a rectangular blue flag ’ with a white center of the same shape, but of about one-fourth the dimensions. It is the letter P of the international code, but when hoi sted alone at the fore truck or top of foremast, signifies that the ves sel Is ready to sail or will sail short ly. In the United States a flag call ed the cornet is used as a sailing signal. Blue peter la also a local name applied to the coot, or mud hen. Q. What Is the most powerful lifting gas?—A. J. P. A. The Chemical Warfare Service says that dydrogen is the most pow erful lighting gas and helium is the next in lifting power. Helium has 93 per cent of the lifting power of hyd rogen but it is considered especially valuable because of its non-inflam mability. iii'io hip iiiaiij' «uusiuiib kettles singing "on the hob." What is the hob? A. A narrow ledge at the back, or more generally at the side of an open fireplace, which will hold a kettle, is called the hob. Q. Who first advanced the theory of the evolution of man from lower forms of life?—B. T. S. A. Aristotle may be regarded as the father of this theory of evolu tion. He conceived of a genetic ser ies. a chain of being from polyps to man. Q. What were the mourning cus toms of the Jews in early times?— H. L. D. A. The scriptures set forth many interesting details concerning the method of Jewish mourning. The next of kin closed the eyes of the deceased: the corpse was bathed and if a person of any consequence, the s body was laid for a time in spices, I or was anointed with them, swathed ^ In linen bandages and deposited in a tomb. The mourners went bare headed and.barefooted, covered their mouths and kept silence, wore sack cloth and sat In ashes. Funeral songs were sung by hired singers, and splendid sepulchers were carv ed out of rock containing numerous niches. As a niche was filled, a stone was rolled against the open ing. Q. About how many boxes ol grapefruit or oranges do Florida’cit rus groves produce?—M. T. A. Citrus groves come into full bearing about the tenth year. The average yield for Florida is about 150 boxes of fruit to the acre or somewhat less than two boxes to the tree. Occasionally groves yield 500 boxes per acre in a single acre, but only the best groves average more than 200 boxes annually. Q. What drink is known as a starboard light? A. On shipboard, a glass of green creme de minfhe is called a star board light. BREATHING COMMON SENSE WAYS TO KEEP WELL By Bit. It. H. BISHOP Man is not ordinarily conscious of his breathing, it has become a habit, a necessary habit of course. He does not notice whether he breathes deeply or not. Most people do not., Many of our most famous physi cians prescribe deep breathing exer cises every day, since no one actu ally exercises his breathing appara | tus regularly unless he is an athlete accustomed, to regular feats of en durance. A Itussian author, who suffered a nervous breakdown, found, after re peated experiments of many aids to health, that a retired life in the mountains in which simple deep breathing exercises taken sys tematically formed the principal | part of the program, brought about i a permanent cure. Most working people are shut in doors throughout the day. Deep breathing is a source of great bene fit to such people. They should seize the chance, whenever offered, to step outdoors and snatch a dozen or so deep breaths. One would be surprised how greatly this simple exercise will offset hours of indoor living and breathing. Ordinarily only about one-tenth of the lungs contents is changed at each breath. In deep breathing a much larger percentage is changed, the whole lung is forced into action, and the circulation of the blood in the abdomen is more efficiently main tained. Thus, too, is the circulation throughout the body equalized. In creased blood pressure due to ner vous or emotional causes is lowered, also by such exercises. Breathing exercises should always be deep, slow and rhythmic and through the nose rather than through the mouth. An Oriental breathing exercise which insures slowness and even ness of the breath consists of clos ing one nostril and inhaling through the other, breathing out of the first rostril in the same manner and then reversing the process. One can tell whether his breathing Is regular or not by listening to the slight sound of the air, as it passes through the one open nostril. Muscular exercises are good to start deep breathing, and it is well to take the two exercises together. But deep breathing by itself is also beneficial if slow. She Knows After 20 Years.
