Highway Safety Device
Warns of Curve Danger
When Douglas L. Stemple, Green
ough, Mont, was snowbound in a
mountain cabin for three weeks, he
had a lot of time to think about a
near-accident he had on a highway
As a result. the nation’s highways
may be made safer by means of a
signal system to warn motorists of
approaching cars on blind curves
which he invented during his en
forced idleness.
The device, which works much like
a railroad block signal, is receiving
experimental tests by the Montana
highway department on McDonald
pass, west of Helena.
D. A. McKinnon, Montana state
highway engineer, has described
Stemple’s invention as “an impor
tant contribution to highway safety."
The signal system works like this:
A thin rubber hose is placed across
the highway well back trom the blind
curve. When an automobile passes
over it, a red warning signal flashes
at the other end of the curve, warn
ing other motorists that another ma
chine is approaching.
It is estimated the devices would
cost about SIOO each. Highway 01-
ficials said they also could be used
on hills.
New Orleans Air Conditioning
New Orleans, a city built on wood
pilings. may cave in on itself while
trying to keep cool, according to
Charles Evan Fowler, a widely
known building expert and consult
ing engineer. Shallow wells in the
business district are constantly
pumped for air-cooling purposes.
Fowler said. He added that this
eventually will lower the water ta
ble under the city’s area and cause
wood pilings, which serve as sup
port for some of the largest build
ings, to rot. Already one large build
ing has had to be underpinned be
cause of sinking: Fowler, author of
some 30 books on engineering, made
a survey across Lake Pontchartrain
for a proposed 24-mile causeway. He
issued designs for reinforced con
crete pilings of four, eight, and 12
vanes, the last having an increased
geometrical ratio of frictional pow
er over the first. Increased tric
tional power, Fowler explained.

Ragweed Is Valuable ‘
~ In, Tobacco Growing
In the early days «our. country
planters soon found‘ that tobacco
grown on v‘irg'in soil produced larger
yields of finer-textured leaf than that
grown on older cultivated plots.
Thus, to meet market demands.
early settlers and their successors
cleared forested areas until in time
all the good land had been planted
to tobacco!
'As farming science developed. to
bacco growers tried crop rotation.
and used manures and fertilizers in
an effort to maintain yield and
quality. These practices did not
prove satisfactory on all soils and
with all crop combinations.
In recent years. scientists of the
United States department of agricul
ture discovered that tobacco grown
after a natural weed fallow and re
ceiving the right kind of commer
cial fertilizer apparently possesses
those characteristics observed in the
early days when the crop was grown
on virgin land. The fact that tobac
co planted after a bare fallow shows
a rapid decrease in yield and quality
demonstrates that the cover of spon
taneous growth is the answer to the
problem rather than simply allow
ing the land to remain idle.
Tests completed recently by the
department scientists show that cero
tain weeds are more desirable than
others as a fallow. It may not be
good news to persons susceptible to
hay fever, but ragweed is one of
the weed species showing the best
results. Horseweed is another. On
the other hand. tobacco following
lamb’s quarter showed some reduc
tion in yield over bare fallow.
