Fresh Winds Bring
Relief From Day
And Night of Big
Sand Storm

i By The A*aoc»ted Pre**)
Texas set about to clean iu grimy
face Friday as the season’s most de
vastating duster gradually disappear
ed in south Texas and the lower Rio
Grande Valley.
Clear, cold weather supplanted the
duster in north and west Texas and
the pranks of nature continued as
residents reached for topcoats in
some sectors.
The sun. loser in a two-day tussle
with choking silt, beamed again in
most sections. However, light drizzles
were reported in the Rio Grande
Only remnants oi the duster re
mained at Austin and the pall was
lifting quickly and floating south
ward Can Antonio reported the can
cellation of air traffic as the flying
particles stuobornly remained in the
territory. Visibility was still limited
to one hall mile.
Brownsville welcomed a light driz
zle which sifted through a mild
haze. A northerly wind gave promise
of more rain and continued duA.
McAllen's first duster was felt but
light showers aided in hastening its
departure. A yellowish haze remain
ed Friday, however.
From the stricken west Texas
plains and Panhandle came reports
of the disappearance of the scourge.
San Angelo said a light norther ap
peared and the dust was • practically'*
gone. The weather was zippy at Abi
lene aud not a particle of dust was
in sight expect on floors and furni
A chill norther drove the dust away
at Wichita Falls. The temperature
skidded to 42 degrees and skies were
clear. Early truck crops* were severe
ly hit by the duster and grain in the
Wichita Palls vicinity was damaged
an estimated 35 per cent.
A brilliant sun and chill winds
was the dish senfed up for Fort
Worth and Dallas. The weather was
cold and clear at Corsicana and dust
was settling repidly.
In east Texas the sky cleared and
Longview, Sherman and Tyler re
ported brisk, chilly winds.
Clear weather again prevailed in
the dust-swept region near Shreve
port. La , and flying at Barksdale
field, army airport, was resumed
Dust clouds were fading at Corpus
Christ! after the first visit of the
silt to the coastal city.

Power and Influence.”
"Moses saw the needs of the
people,” he said, "and made it hia
purpose to help them, and was will
ing to sacrifice everything if need
be ui order to accomplish that end
These three things, a social vision,
a powerful purpose and a sacrificial
service, are the secrets that glorify
one's life and bless the world as
we live and serve.” The emblematic
colors of the Young People's Divis

dence in the decorations.

NEW' YORK. April 12. While
the silver sheen appeared to luve
faded to some extent In Friday's fi
nancial markets, a fairly steady to
firm tone prevailed in most cate
Disappointment was expressed in
speculative circles that the gov
ernment’s increase of the domestic
silver rate had not brought out a
strong buying movement in stocks.
But the action of leading equities
apparently was satisfactory to the
market analysis. Silver mining issues
were still in demand and the rails
climbed out of their groove for a
moderate upward llurry. Elsewhere
prices were extremely narrow.
Profit taking halted the forward
movement in wheat and other com
modities were listless. Cotton was
somewhat reactionary. Minor chan
ges were the rule in bond dealings.
Foreign currencies did little.
Although metal shares did not run
away, gains of fractions to around
a point were recorded by U S.
Smelting. Cerro De Pasco. American
Smelting and Howe Sound. The rails
got up a point or mere in a lively
10-minute splurge Coca-Cola was a
soft spot with the loss of some 2
A more than seasonal decline in
freight car loadings lor the week
ended April 6. was net unexpected.
The total was off 71.858 cars from
the previous week. This was attribut
ed largely to a fall in coal shipments
because of fears of labor troubles.
Various carrier stocks seemed to
have attracted attention because oi
expectations that the supreme court
will soon hand down a decision on
the constitutionality of the railroad
pension law.
Wall Street sought for explana
tions of the market's indifference to
the silver spurt. Seme observers ad
vanced the suggestion that the ad
ministration’s action on the white
metal far from having an immed
iate inflationary intention, was for
the purpose of heading off currency
expansionist* at the capital.
In the meantime the New York
prices for foreign silver imported for
commercial use was advanced 2s*
cents an ounce to 68H cents, another
new top since 1926 In London the
silver rate was also stepped up to an
equivalent of 68 43 cent* xn ounce.

Liverpool reported a reactionary

ed his opposition to war and dic

quitted of espionage charges by
rive stem-faced nasi Judges of
the peoples’ court.
The session, open to the pub

for another 45 minutes. The
warrant against the former
Cleveland and Chicago man was
Suashed and the state was or
ered to bear the costs of the
Roiderer. who spent nine
months in a Munich Jail before he
was transferred to Berlin for
trial, was a pathetic figure. He
was red-eyed and pale and his
face was deeply lined and pallid.
His nose was scarred from a fall.
Roiderer smiled when the ver

300.000 New Men Will
Be Enrolled In
60 Days
Enrollment of the 300.000 new men
for the Civilian Conservation Corps
within 60 days was promised Friday
by Robert Fechner. CCC director,
after a conference with President
Roosevelt on this phase of the
$4,000,000,000 work-relief program.
Fechner went over with Presi
dent Roosevelt his recommenda
tions for 1.500 new camps in the
48 states. Early presidential ap
proval of the plan is in prospect.
The war department would build
the camps and Fechner expressed
the belief it will be possible to
complete the job and enroll the
300.000 new' men within a two
months period. The work lawr au
thorizes a CCC corps 600,000 strong.
Mr. Roosevelt, in pushing for
ward the $4,000,000,000 program was
represented as relying on the CCC
as one of the first points of ac
tion. It was believed the corp6
will permit absorption of some of
the college graduates coming out of
school this June who might be un
able to find work otherwise.

Artificial Fever Kills Germs
In Animals; To Try
DETROIT, April 12. —oP>— An
artificial fever cure for tubercu
losis, which has succeeded on 50
per cent of the monkeys and other
animals given the new treatment
was described Friday at the meet
ing of the Federation of American
Societies of Experimental Biology.
The animals all had the human
form of tuberculosis, which was
given to them by inoculation. The
results were so favorable that it
is now planned to try the treat
ment on human beings, and start
already has been made.
The report was made by R. C.
Major and H. P. Doub of the
Henry Ford hospital, Dc^olt.
The fever was given there in an
air-conditioned chamber designed
by Charles F. Kettering, automobile
Unlike most of the new apparatus
for raising body temperature to
fever height, this Kettering cham
ber uses no radio waves. It causes1
the fever by air heated electrically
to temperature* of 160 to 170 de
gree* In a humidity of 35 to 50 de
grees. The animals stand this ex
cessive heat without too much dis
comfort and apparently human be- j
In ., are capable of doing likewise.
The heat raise* the body temper
atures of the animals to fevers
ranging from 106 to 107 degrees.
Heat treatment la*t four to five
liours. The treatment* are well
spaced and the greater number giv
en ■*> far hare been | .if a dozen
spread over a period of uiree months
The animals all had acute tuber
culosis of the lungs and some of
them were in or near the last stages
About half of them recovered and
x-rays and other clinical signs in- ■
dicate that their cure i* complete.
