An observer could see a ! round the man and look at the scenery in the background. The likene-s was round and full and the ; 8 by 10 photograph had actual I depth. Winnek laughed and ex_ [ plained: "This is the first 'Trivision' pho_ tograph having three dimensions [ ever made." Winnek demonstrated a s.ries of I "Trivision" photographs to the United Press tonight, saying he expected the principle to revolution I iw motion pictures, photography, roentgenology, television and graph ic printing".

Winnek said, and the cost is except ionally low. Winnek described his progress as follows: 'The eyes see two pictures in any object but the brain co-ordinates these, giving the sense of depth. In photography only one picture can bo shown by the old progess. re sulting in a flat .lifeless impression. The new progess is simply a method of presenting two pictures to the eyes. This Ls accomplished through grooving the negative of the film. ?Continued on page seven) THE PRESIDENT ON HIS SPECIAL TRAIN PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT is shown horo as ho up pearea on nu special train on his tour of the drought areas, including visits to eight states and eonfeionees with sixteen governors, among whom were Gov ernor Landon of Kansas.

Discussing the recovery program Knox said that "Our Chief of Government is fond of elaborat ing on the theme of friendly neighbors." "He started out by being a friend of the farmer by regiment ing them," said Knox, as the crowd cheered. "This friendly neighbor of ours." said Knox, had hurt the farmer instead of aiding him. Knox said he "Had learned something since coming into Maine and that is the New DcjA is in retreat and it might be called a rout."

MONKEY SHINES ON RIVERSIDE When a monkey is a monkey, this is not news; but when a monkey makes monkeys out of his owner and a police officer, the monkey has a good time and the neighbors a good laugh. D. P. Webster, Riverside Ave nue storekeeper, has just such a monkey as a pet. He is small, black, fuzzy and ugiy? meaning the monkey. Often he gives Webster trou ble when he gets away and starts roaming so the store keeper has a butterfly net on an extra long po!c to catch his pet. The net was broken yester day. however, when t lie monkey ?ot away and was running his jwncr around in circles for worry that lie would be lost. Policeman George Twiddy join ed in the chase until the monk ?y climbed a tree; a tree that was too tall for the officer to :limb. He did the next best thing and placed a shot from his revolver near the simian. The the monkey acted like himself and sent watchers in to gales of laughter with his intics until Webster managed to hook him into the net and return him to his cage. John Dewey Expects To See Violence Cambridge. Mass., Sept. 4. ? iUP>? Dr. John Dewey, gray haired Columbia University pro fessor and eminent philosopher, tonight predicted "some kind of violence" if America persisted in its present "socially unscientific" trend. "I think there will be a swaying back and forth." he told newsmen prior to reading his paper on "Au thority and Resistance to Social Change" at Harvard's tercenten ary conference of arts and sci ences. First, he said, there would be a swing to "something like" Fasc ism. "There will be a tightening up," he said, "then a swing back. We'll be in a bad way. with some kind of violence in time. I think Demo cratic institutions give the best chance, but they don't go far enough." Some ideas of the Roosevelt ad ministration, Dewey said, were good, but "they are carried out by old-fashioned means." He believes the administration in "some ways has gone ahead, and in some, not." He favored a third major political party. Dewey was apologetically dis posed toward the dictatorship of Soviet Russia. "As far as I know." he said. "Sovet Russia has increased free dom. They are suppressing some kinds of freedom, but not science. It was a very backward country and progress has been difficult. The philosopher stressed the need of a scientific approach by co-operttive intelligence to all questions affecti ngthe state and the people. "Dictatorships today." he said, "are running on a scientific ap plication of unscientific ideas." Government Finances On Sound Basis Says Roosevelt at Springfield Springfield, 111., Sept. 4? "UPi ?

Jr.. secretary of the treasury, in Washington, and added: "I just talked with the secretary concerning the financing of new | federal obligations. I might say that the finances of the government ?re on a sounder basis of credit than ever before in history." The president's statement, com ing on the heels of his tour into the sun.bak d prairie lands of the West, where millions of dollars of federal relief money is being ex pended, was regarded by many as particularly significant and an in ferential reply to charges that cer_ tain New Deal policies are threat ening the country's financial struc ture. Earlier in the day at Jacksonville. 111., an operating stop for his spe cial train cnrouto from Barry. 111., to this city.
