San Francisco, Calif. June 23 It is
now possible to weigh a person's head
without the fatal inconvenience of de
taching it from the body, according to
a method announced by Dr. G D.
Spivak, of Denver, to the American
Medical association here today.
Dr Spivak described the apparatus
which he has contrived by which it is
possible to weigh different parts of the
laving human body. By means of a pair
of scales with sliding weights made
like a seesaw and by the aid of com
plicated mathematical formulae, the
separate weight of any part of the
body can be determined.
In his address as chairman of the
section on Obstetrics, Gynecology and
Abdominal Surgery, Dr. Thomas . S-
tullen of Baltimore reviewed thei
progress of abdominal surgery in the
last 25 jears. pointing out that it is
i w possible for an competent sur
geon to open and explore the abdomen
with perfect safety to the patient. He
showed that the death rate from ab
dominal operations had decreased from
-5 percent to about S percent. -

Rinehart Suggests Trips to
West Texas Towns ; Urges
the Logging of Roads.
A trade trip by auto to El Paso's ter
ritory In west Texas was proposed by
Robert ninehart at a meeting of the
board of directors of the chamber of
commerce, held Tuesday afternoon at
the Citv National bank. The sugges
tion came up in connection with a
proposition for logging the roads
around El Paso and it will probably bo
taken np later by the chamber of com
merce. Mr. Rinehart suggested that
the towns of Sierra Bmnca, Pecos, Al
pine. Fort Stockton. Valentine and
Mnrfa be visited on the trip. El Paso
merchants had long overlooked this rich
territory, he said, and the people of
western Texas were more than anxfous
to enter Into closer trade relations with
this city J. H. Pollard and H. B.
Stevens had already agreed to make the
trip, he stated.
1 raw Not Getting Traffic
Mr. Rinehart declared that a large
amount of the auto traffic to the coast
ntver got within hailing distance of
El Past for the reason that the roads
were not properly logged south of Al
buquerque and that a motorist would
keep to poorer roads rather than take
the risk of getting lost on unchartered
roads. He proposed that the chambsr
of commerce aid in securing a log of
the unloosed roads near the city, which
he and Harry Locke have been making
for some months The proposition will
be acted upon probably tonight, when
membeis of tte auto club will mei
with directors of the chamber of com
merce for the purpose of discussing a
consolidation of the club with the
chamber of commerce.
Paving Data to lie Gathered.
Data legarding cement, gravel, as
phalt and other kinds of paving In this
section will be secured by the secretary
of the -chamber of commerce and will be
given out by the organization so that
the public will be informed regarding
the pending bond issue for roads.
A communication was read from a
prospective investor in the east who
stated that he had $25,600 or 10,090
to invest in some industry in El Paso,
and asking for information regarding
the ,st field for investment here. Ho
requested that his name be withheld.
To Assist July 4th Meeting.
The chamber of commerce will aid
Rev. Perry J. Rice In decorating Cleve
land square where, on July 4, a relig
ious meeting and patriotic addresses
will be held. It was announced that
the railroads entering El Paso will be
asked tj incorporate in their advertise
ments announcements of the entertain
ment features planned tor the celebra
tion on July .
Arrangements have been made for a
special excursion to Elephant Butte on
Sunday, July 4. The excursion will leave
here at 7 a. m. and will be under the
auspices of the chamber of commerce.
The chairmanship of the excursion com
mittee was transferred from J. F.

believed by officials to have been the

As a precaution against a demon

only three minutes.
"Warden Allen declared that Camp

"His statement that he took the news

that the tragedy would not affect the

Chicago. I1L, June 2J- The pithy
lines which are striven for in much
advertising matter sparkled in ad
dresses given here today before the
house organ section of the convention
of the Associated Advertising Clubs of
the TVorld. This style was particu
larly marked in the remarks of C
Henry Mackintosh, of Duluth. Minn,
and Vincent L. Price, of St. Louis. Mo.
"Lots of perfectly good advertising
men will tell you that art Is a very
secondary consideration in advertis

artist. " 'Art nothing!' they will shout,
adding 'the sole purpose of advertis

I don't care how inartistic it is"
"You and I know, of course, that to
sell goods Is the art In advertlslnj?
and that an inartistic advertisement is
one which fails to achieve that end.
"The Greeks had the right Idea
about art. They never labored to make
anything beautiful. They just went
ahead and fashioned it to serve Its
purpose as simply and perfectly as pos
sible and then -it couldn't help being
Mr. Mackintosh, speaking of artlitic

Mr. Price said: "Good will Is the

"It overlooks mistakes, forgives

is a tremendous asset to any business

From El Paso and various cities in
Arizona and New Mexico, messages of
congratulations were telegraphed Mon

Line Up With The I

Protection for Workmen
Now in 30 States; Two
Prohibit Child Labor.
New York, June 23. To the list of
22 states in which workmen's compen
sation laws were already in effect,
eight more states and the territory of
Alaska have this year been added by
the action of their legislatures during
sessions which have just come to a
close. This growth of the movement to
ward safeguarding the welfare of the
laborer and his dependents is revealed
in the summary of this year's legisla
tive activities, which has been com
piled by the Associated Press, The
summary also shows progress in the
abolishment of child labor and in the
direction of limiting the working hours
of minors.
The additional states to adopt work
men's compensation are Wyoming.
Montana, Oklahoma, Colorado, Maine,
Indiana. Vermont and Pennsylvania.
Favorable action toward the enaction
of such a measure was also taken by
the legislature of Utah, which created a
commission to investigate the question
and report a bill for the consideration
of the next legislature. In one state
which considered the matter. New Mex
ico, a proposed workmen's compensa
tion law passed the house, but was de
feated in the senate. In Idaho, the bill
was vetoed by the governor. Several
other states revised their former laws
in order to Insure more efficient opera
tion. Somewhat different standards as to
the way In which compensation should
be awarded and the law administered
are shown in the measures enacted this
year, but this lack of uniformity is also
a feature of various laws previously
passed in other states. For instance,
under the new Colorado statute Injured
workmen will receive 50 percent of
their wages during Incapacity, though
not to exceed SS a week. In case of
total permanent disability, the compen
sation is pas able through life. When
death results from the accident, the
worker's family Is to receive a similar
amount for six years with a maximum
of 32506. In case of loss of eyes,
hands, limbs or other members, similar
payments are to be made for a specified
period, varying from a few weeks to
four years, dependent upon the nature
o the injury.
Employers Must Insure Payment.
Employers are required to insure pay
ment either in a state fund to be cre
ated or a mutual or stock insurance
company. Administration Is placed In
the hands of an Industrial commission
of three members who shall adjust dis
putes and with authority to make
awards If employers or Insurance com
panies neglect to make v payments
promptly: Court proceedings are there
by practically eliminated.
The Maine law, however, awards her
Injured workmen payments by the em
ployer of not more than $10 a week in
case of total disability, with a maxi
mum of JJ660. Heirs in case of death
receive the same and the scale of pay
ments for those partly disabled ranges
from $4 to J10 a week.
Pennsylvania provides for the pay
ment of S6 percent of wages, but not
more than J10 nor less than $5, with a
maximum total of I10O0. The act Is
elective and takes away from the em
ployers the common law defences, but
the people will vote In November on a
constitutional amendment permitting
the legislature to make it compulsory.
The act creates a state Insurance fund,
but employers are permitted to protect
themselves in any other form of Insur
ance or carrv their own risks on ap
proval of the bureau of workmen s
ompensation which will admln3ter tn
taw. Domestics and agricultural labor

The Indiana law provides no state in
surance, but permits the employer to
seek it where he chooses, or not at all.
If he give proof of his financial ability
to pay the compensation. This is fixed
at SS percent of the average wage, not
to exceed 500 weeks, and in case of
death, burial expenses to the defend

of the weekly wage for 300 weeks. Do

Do You Know Why Cow's Milk
Will Not Do For Your Baby?
Many mothers who cannot nurse their babies think that
cow's milk is a safe substitute. But it is not. You can't
depend on getting cow's milk fresh and purs. Nearly all
milk is 30 hours old when you get it. You can't be sure
that the dairy is clean or the cow free from'' consumption.
Even were you sure, still the milk would not do for your
baby. Cow's mflk is intended for strong calves. Your baby's
tender little stomach cannot digest the heavy curds in
cow's milk. It struggles under such an unfair load and
finally becomes weak and ill. Give your baby the food
