Save Washing Time: So many
new demands are being made on
your time these days, it is wise to
make the best possible use of
each minute. One way is in how
you use your washing machine.
For instance, long washing is
not necessarily good washing,
and it wastes time. Soap under
goes a chemical change after it
has been used a little while, suds
"break down" and the soil is
actually deposited again on the
fabric. Then it is practically im
possible to get the articles clean.
Only individual experimenta
tion can show how short to keep
the washing of each load, and yet
be thorough. Tests have revealed
one woman taking only half the
time of another to wa/?h a practi
cally identical washing, yet do
ing it better.
Twenty-minute soaking hastens
washing by loosening soil. Then
remove water by wringing the ar
tides into the first washer full of

By the same token the commis

as a result of the pryings of legal

ed from their study of the law creat

The law says that "qualified per
sons” are eligible for commissions.
By virtue of this ruling Mrs. Flikke’s
colonelcy was sanctioned by the sur
geon general, the adjutant general
and the judge advocate.
High authority indeed; none
the less it is questioned on the
basic ground that there were no
women in the army when con
gress passed the law; that,
therefore, promotions of women
are outside the law. The United
States controller general, an im
portant official since he passes
on all pay vouchers, is inclined
to accept the point raised. If, he
says, congress meant women to
be eligible for army rank, it
would have said so. So there

ELEVEN years ago Eugene J.

inventor, arrived on these shores
with his wife and two small chil

Free Enterprise eventually
moved to Ardmore, a main line sub
urb. Then 38 years old, Houdry had
been at work in his native country
over a period of years on a method
for the catalytic cracking of oil by
which the crude is converted into
vapors at lower temperatures and
pressures than had hitherto been
used. These vapors, then, are
brought into contact with a catalyst
and are condensed into their various
derivatives in proportions which can
be controlled in the operation. In
the midst of these researches in
France—having already invented a
process for obtaining octane gaso
line vital to aviation—his money ran
out He could get no more and seek
ing practical encouragement in the
United States, he migrated hither
and found two great oil companies
eager to finance his laboratory.
Some $10,000,000 was paid out in
perfecting Houdry’s process and in
devising and making apparatus for
its use on a large commercial scale.
Now Eugene Houdry is cited
as having succeeded in apply
ing his catalytic cracking proc
ess to the commercial produc
tion of butadiene—something for
which an eager public has been
waiting since war began and
our supply of rubber was cut off.
For butadiene is the main in
gredient of a very fine brand of
synthetic rubber. Consequently,
if all is well with the Houdry
process, the present shortage in
an essential commodity may be
overcome much sooner than had

Immersed since his arrival in thi!
country in scientific research Mr
Houdry, now a naturalized citizen
i found time after the fall of Franc*
to help organize here that aggres
sively militant organization, “Franc*

WASHINGTON.—Russia will still
be fighting when winter comes
again. That is the assurance high
government officials are giving.
What is more, some of them are
predicting that the Nazis are in tor
some very unpleasant surprises be
fore another month of fighting on
the Russian front.
So much has been said about
Adolf Hitler's various secret weap
ons, from time to time, that it is a
relief to be able to state, on abso
lute knowledge, that the Russians
will be trying out a secret weapon
More than this cannot be said,
nor can any inkling of the nature
of the “surprise” be given, but men
who know their military tactics and
their weapons, and know as much
about German weapons and tech
nique as anyone outside Germany
itself, predict confidently that Hit
ler’s generals will have to revise
their entire strategy as a result.
This secret weapon, they think, is
apt to prove as revolutionary in this
war as the Merrimac and Monitor
proved in the Civil war, though of
course the new weapon applies
to land fighting.
At first blush it might seem a
great deal more encouraging if the
new weapon were a sure cure for
the submarine, for it is the battle
of the Atlantic that is so all impor>
Some experts point out, how
ever, that while the submarine
menace to shipping is the vital
factor right now, so far as the
news is concerned, the new
weapon, which, by the time it
gets into wholesale operation,
will not only bold the Germans,
but drive them back, may prove
to be more timely than if it
were what now seems so much
more Immediately necessary—a
Harmful to the Nazis
The theory of the experts on this
is that for the present, and for per
haps another year, the submarine in
the Pacific is more important to
us than to Japan. So that if a per
fect cure for the submarine were
devised, and the Japs were able to
imitate it, the result might be to
impede our mopping up of Japan
rather than to aid it.
Experts believe that once the new
weapon which is so confidently ex
pected to aid Russia becomes known
—as soon as it is used half a dozen
times—the Germans will know pre
cisely what it is, they will be able
to imitate it without much trouble.
But this factor is not as impor
tant as It sounds. The net result,
if BOTH SIDES had the weapon in
quantity today, would be enormous
ly harmful to Germany. It would
neutralize what at present is a very
real superiority on the part of the

Old Timers Eager
To Man Sailing Ships
The suggestion that a big fleet of
amateur motor boatmen maintain a
chain of protection along the coast
against submarines has started a lot
of thinking in Washington on an en
tirely different tack.
There are now some enthusiastic
advocates of small sailing vessels—
not to chase submarines; they
would be useless for that—but to
carry cargoes from near-by ports.
Now obviously an old-fashioned
schooner, or smaller sailing craft,
has passed into the discard so far
as freight carrying is concerned
simply and solely because it was
cheaper to haul by power.
Why was it cheaper to use power
than to use wind, which cost noth
ing? Because the sailing vessel
required so much longer to make
any given round trip. In the old
days, at the rate of pay then in
existence for sailors, this made little
But with modern requirements
both as to wages and as to living
conditions aboard ship a condition
was produced where if the little
vessel were becalmed a week the
total profit on the voyage would be
But, as in the case of spending
the additional money to get oil and
gas to the Northeast, it may NOW
: be profitable, aside from any neces
sity. to use sailing vessels.
There is another important ad
' vantage, in view of present condi
’ tions, in using sail, if only small
vessels are used. No one of them
would be worth a submarine's time,
shells, and, least of all a torpedo.
An old-fashioned Chesapeake Bay
