Closing out at NATIONAL FORESTRY RELIEF POLICY IS AIM OF U. S. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE New York, July 5.Following a preliminary meeting here it was an nounced that the committee of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States to study' forestry problems Will make a:trip to the Pacific Coast- In its endeavor to formulate a national forestry policy this National Forestry Policy Committee Cof the Chamber will not confine itself to a study of princi ples embodied in forsetry bills before Çongress, but will make an independ ent investigation. "Forest resources in the East anti South are reduced to the point where 61 per cent of the total stand of saw timber Hee west of the Great Plains, and over 50 per cent. in the three Pa cific Coast States," says a statement by Charles Lathrop Pack. president of the American Forestry Association, in commenting on the importance of the trip. "Our demand upon the latter is be coming' heavier each year and with it our freight bills are becoming larger and larger. Investigations of a num ber cf large retail lumber companies in southern Minnesota show that Via average transportation cost of ma terial handled by them, due primarily to the increasing volume of western lumber which these companies have had to import in order to supply the needs of their territory, has inergased 262 per cent. in the last fifteen years, Yet these companies are in a region which only a few years ago was im mediately contiguous to the great.st lumber producting region of the CONCENTRATE TO DETERMINE SEX Repopulation of Europe Mayl , Be Solved By Jap Profess : or's Forraula to Colleen trate 0 13.

Joseph H. Defrees, president of the National Chamber, says it is not the intention of the Board of Directors of the Chamber that the committee should only go into the bills before Congress. but that it should endeavor to formulate general policies of its own after a thorough study of the whole forestry questions. He said there were no limitations to its activi :ies in investigating and reporting on a. national forestry policy. The committee thereupon decided that it wouid make an exhaustive study of the subject in allits different phases. In this connection the com mittee adopted thi resolution: "Resolved. That there should be co operation between Federal Govern ment and the States as well as private timberland owners to forward a na tional forestry policy." Members of the committee number some of the most widely-known busi less men and educators in the coua try. lege of Tokio- He makes the posi tive assertion that by using his me thod parents can rnake certain that an unborn child will be either a boy or a girl, according to their choice, in 95- per cent of all cases. It is a very simple matter, writes Dr. Tu-Se-K41-11i. If the parents want a boy baby the prospective mo ther has only to concentrate on that idea and say each evening before go ing to sleep and each morning. on arising "I will have a baby boy." The Japanese doctor experiment ed with 1,942 cases' before making his discovery public. In 1.908 cases mothers who followed his sug gestion had their wishes fulfilled. He attributes tenure in the other thirty four cases to the fact that prospec tive mothers were thinking of other things when they repeated his ma gic formula and did not concentrate their attention. Jacques Hardy, a French scientist, who presented Dr. Tu-Se-Ka-Ri's statement, not only gives it his ap proval, but deêlares that he himself has tried the same experiment with six women. four of whom wanted boys and two girls, and- that in each instance they. bad their wishes ful filled He adds that twenty similar xperiments are being made by noted aris physicians 8.nd that the results 1, ill soon be made public'. , tDistrict Deputy Grand Master Mc urray arid staff urn), install the til ers of Adelphian Loste I.

Italy, July 6Cities of re fuge, parallels of the cities of re fuge maintained in Mosaic times, have been discovered in San Marino, the world's oldest republic, situated in the very heart of Italy. The cities of the republic are the refuges of hun dreds of communists who flee there to escape surveillance of the Italian police force and attacks of the fas cisti cr extreme nationalists. In many. ,Iples, attired in the garb of priests, communists apply to the authorities of San Marino for protec tion and permission to live within the republic jurisdiction. One com munist was so overcome with fright that be asked to be confined in prison so that he would be safe from any assault of the fascisti. The republic on the other band. does not welcome its new guests and has applied to the Italian government for 8.n extra. force of carabineers to ferret out the communist refugees and take them back within the jurisdic tion of Italy.
