Juvenile Fliers Learn Tricks
Of Air Currents on Ground
Schoolboys may be too young to fly real airplanes for
their country, but they want to learn the principles of avia
tion in a manner which approaches the thrill of the real thing.
A California glider company and Aeronautical Engineer Vol
mar Jensen have created a preflight glider which brings
youngsters plenty of thrills and a basic flying technique with
out risking their necks. With the glider, schoolboys learn to
keep a steady course through rushing air currents. They do
It on the ground towed by a
car going 30 miles an hour.

Breezing along behind the tow l
car, the cadet above tries to pre
vent the glider s wing tips from \
scraping the ground. Perfectly I
controlled, the glider will roll i
smoothly with tail up.
Right: Use of these jigs simpli- |
fies construction of the glider. f
Wood parts are fitted in, nailed f
and glued. The glider is made of |
non-priority materials and can |
be assembled by school manual |
training classes. A control stick is f
connected to wings and tail.
Ready to match his technique against air currents, the student,
above, informs the automobile driver that he is ready. Tow car pulls
away and the 100 foot line is jerked taut.
The glider zooms past an assembly of fellow students. Despite
rushing air, it is level. The operator is controlling its balance, some
thing that any pilot must master before he takes to the air.
Below: Volmar Jensen attaches
the rudder to the tail. He built
several safety devices into the
craft to eliminate the usual risks
of preliminary glider instruction.
Any ideas that the non-ascending
gliders were “sissifietP were soon
dispelled. It was quite difficult to
keep a level course at a speed of
30 miles an hour. But most of
them soon mastered this tech

Danger of Fire Lurks
Constantly in Barns
Hazards M ay Be Removed
By Simple Precautions
Bams generally house the farm
er's most valuable livestock, equip
ment and feed; yet, the barn is
packed with fire hazards. But to
all practical purposes, all of the
major causes of bam fires can be
eliminated if the farmer will prac
tice simple precautions and be con
stantly vigilant. The National Fire
Protection association working with
the Department of Agriculture, has
compiled a list of these dangers.
Cobwebs, dust and litter of all
kinds should not be allowed to ac
cumulate around fuse boxes where
they may be ignited by short cir
cuits or around high-speed machin
ery where sparks can set them
ablaze. Knotting of electric cords is
dangerous as it may be the cause of
short circuits. The main switch box
should also be far enough removed
from the lightning rod cable so that
bolts of lightning cannot jump from
the cable to the switch box, short
circuiting the wiring.
Inflammable roofs often are ig
nited by chimney sparks, or sparks
blown long distances from brush
flres, bonfires or forest flres. For
this reason inflammable barn roofs
should be re-covered with fire-re
sistant materials such as asphalt
shingles or asphalt roll roofing.
Lanterns should never be placed
where an animal or a workman can
kick them over. They should not be
hung on a twine from a dusty and
cobweb-covered ceiling. They should
be kept away from drafts and away
from any accumulations of combusti
ble materials. It was a cow kicking
over a lantern that started the great
Chicago fire, according to tradi
tion, and many a barn has been de
stroyed in this way.
Smoking should be prohibited in
the barn at all times. It is even
dangerous to light up a pipe or a
cigarette on the way out the barn
door, as the sparks may be blown
back to ignite combustible stores
inside. Workmen are also advised
against carrying loose matches.
Spontaneous combustion of hay is
one of the most common barn fire
causes. All hay should be properly
cured before being stored in the
mow and should be inspected fre
quently for signs of heating. Roof
leaks creating moisture will start
the heating process in perfectly
cured hay.
In addition to these precautions,
fire-fighting equipment should be
kept on hand at all times to tackle
any blaze that breaks out despite
all carefulness. Each farm should
have a long ladder, hose, buckets of
water and sand reserved solely for
fire use, and a fire extinguisher. To
be effective these things must ,be
kept in sound condition and in a spot
where they are immediately avail
able in an emergency.
Clear Pecan Groves
Clearing low producing trees and
all foreign timber from a pecan
grove often may double production
in a relatively short time. Accord
ing to J. F. Rosborough, horticultur
ist for the Texas A. & M. college,
this clean-up has the further benefit
of aiding in the control of certain
insects and diseases, and facilitating
the harvesting of nuts. In all cases,
however, it should be followed
through with the elimination of
stumps and sprouts.

or more below normal. The cause
is an underactive thyroid gland and
these patients are given thyroid ex
tract daily to bring the rate at
which the body processes work up
to normal.
The above symptoms of the over
active and underactive thyroid
gland describe what should be called
advanced cases. What about cases
where the symptoms are not so pro
In the slightly overactive cases,
rest of body and mind is needed,
and in the slightly underactive cases
some stimulation of mind and body
is needed.
Physicians have been finding
many children in whom nose and
throat infections, and also intestine
disturbances and infections occur so
often that they suspect some under
lying condition of the body as be
ing the cause. Dr. M. H, Stiles in
"Archives of Pediatrics" (children’s
diseases) states that because some
children were having distension ol
the abdomen and other symptoms
pointing to a lack of thyroid Juice
in the body, studies of the basal me
tabolism were made in a group of
30 children and teen-age boys and
girls, in whom there were persistent
colds, bronchitis and inflammation
of ears and of stomach and intestine.
Of the 30 children studied, 90 per
cent had basal rates below zero or
less, and 60 per cent had rates of
minus 10 or less, and for the whole
group, the average rate was mi
nus 11.
Of the 30 patients studied, 18 were
given thyroid extract. Of these 18,
there were 15 who showed great im
provement, and only three were not
improved. Where, then, these symp
toms keep occurring, the metabolism
test might well be given.
Excess Fluid in Body
Puts Strain on Heart
When the heart is beginning to
fail, the first symptom noted is
shortness of breath after exertion,
and especially after eating. Palpi
tation—hard beating of the heart—
is another early symptom of a fail
ing heart. Even lying down does not
ease the shortness of breath or quiet
down the palpitation for some min
Another symptom to appear in
early heart failure is swelling of the
ankles or of the other parts, espe
cially the liver.
The first thought in the treatment
of early heart failure is to reduce
the amount of work done by the
heart by resting more, strengthen
ing the power of the heart muscle
yet quieting it if necessary. The
drug used to strengthen the power of
the heart is digitalis which not only
slows, steadies and strengthens the
heart action, but helps to drive the
water from the tissues. The work of
the heart is greatly reduced by re
ducing the amount of water in the
In Southern Medicine and Surgery,
Dr. J. B. McLester, Birmingham,
the noted food and nutrition authori
ty, makes the following suggestions
in the treatment of heart patients.
“Weigh the patient every day; in
crease in weight is the first sign of
excess fluid in the tissues. The in
crease in weight occurs several days
before the appearance of liquid—
swelling—in the ankles and other
tissues. If the swelling (edema) is
present or if the weight increases,
have the patient stop using salt in
his food and rest as much as possi
ble.” Excess water in the tissues
must be removed by use of ammo
nium chloride, in 15 gram doses,
three times daily for three days, if
the low salt diet fails to remove it.
