A MONDAY, JANUARY .23, 1939. PLATTSMOUTH SEMI - WEEKLY 'JOURNAL PAGE FIVE i Consumer Gain, of 134,000 Seen by TVA in 1939 Memphis and Nashville Contracts Sought by Power Authority Deals Are Pending. KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - (UP) U pending deals are consummated, the Tennessee Valley Authority will be supplying electricity to 167,000 cus tomers by the end of 1939, according to an official survey. This compares -with 33,000 consum ers of TVA current during 1938, after the new deal agency first be gan to market the power It gener ated by dams along the Tennessee river. The largest bloc of TVA custom ers added during 1938 was in Knox ville, where the Tennessee Public Service Co., a subsidiary of National Power & Light Co., sold Its facilities to the city and TVA. This trans action was the first In which TVA took over the distribution linos of a major private utility. A similar deal is pending in Mem phis, although .negotiations between the city and Memphis Power & Light, another N. P. & L. division, have leached a stalemate and the city is threatening to build a duplicate dis tribution system. Nashville May Be Added The authority also is negotiating for contracts in Chattanooga and Nashville, the only other large cities in the immediate TVA area. Nash ville's city council requested a wholesale power contract last month, and one may be executed within the next few weeks, subject to ratifica tion by Nashville citizens. Chattanooga is building a muni cipal system to carry TVA power in competition with the Tennessee Elec tric Power Co., a subsidiary of Com monwealth & Southern. According to J. A. Krug, TVA chief power plan ning engineer, "The city of Chatta nooga is advancing rapidly with its construction and will begin, to ser vice consumers this month." TVA also purchased jointly with local agencies in 193S the facilities of the Kentucky-Tennessee Light & Power company, the Holston Electric company and the Orainge rcounty electric company. ' " To Add 22 Towns A deal whih owaits only the for mality of signatures for closing, ac cording to the authority, will add the 22 towns formerly served by the West Tennessee Power & Light Co. to the TVA clientele. The transaction calls for TVA and the client towns to prorate the purchase price of the utility's distribution system. No conclusions have been reached in TVA negotiations with Common wealth & Southern subsidiaries serv ing in northern Mississippi and Ala bama, but several towns ar-; proceed ing with plans to build their own distributing systems. These include RussellviHe, Albert ville, Guntersville, Decatur and Hartselle, Alabama, and Starkvillc, Aberdeen, Columbus and West Point, Miss. TVA recently initiated service to Water Valley, Miss., which has a municipal power plant. PROTEST SALES TO JAPAN NEW YORK, Jan. 19 (UP) A new organization opposing the sale of war materials to Japan, and headed by Henry L. Stimson, for mer secretary of state, began circu larizing 40,000 prominent persons by mail today, appealing for sup port. It is called the American commit tee for non-participation in Japanese aggression, and charges that "through lack of knowledge or in difference," Americans continue to supply Japanese aggressors "with the sinews of war: scrap iron, oil, steel and trucks all more necessary to her than manufactured muni tions." "With one hand we supply the essential materials to the Japanese military machine . . . with the other hand we spend billions for armaments which will protect us against the mounting threat of aggressor na tions," a statement said. "It does not make sense." 'Louis' Boys to Bring Two Negros for the Crown Joe Louis and John Henry Lewis Brings Two of Race to Straggle for Heavyweight Title. GERMAN SPONGE FISHERS GOING TO WEST INDIES HAMBURG, Germany (UP) Ger many is to fish for sponge.

(UP) Placement of 83 per cent of the seniors wrho graduated last June from the University of Illinois Collegre of Commerce in jobs ranging from chamber of commerce secretary to brewer's apprentice, is reported today. FAVORS ARMING GUAM WASHINGTON, Ian. 20 (UP) President Roosevelt today said he fav ored the pending bill authorizing con struction of naval base facilities at Guam, the Pacific island within 1, 500 miles of Tokyo. The Guam pro ject is one of twelve proposed naval bases. NEW YORK, Jan. Zl (UP) For the first time in more than 25 years, two Negroes will battle next Wed nesday ' for the heavyweight cham pionship of the world and no mat ter who wins the name will sound the same when it comes blaring through the loud-speakers of Madison Square Garden. Because it will be the "Louis" boys against each other Champion Joe and Challenger John Henry Lewis. And a quarter century ago shows that a similar situation or con fusion existed in Paris in the only other all-Negro title fight. That was in 1913 when Jack Johnson defend ed his crown against one Jim John Eon. Next week's 15-rounder is ex pected to draw a gate of $120,000 and today you could almost name your own ticket if you wanted Lewis on the short end. The official bet ting odds ranged from three to four to one but if you wanted five or six, you could get it. "Shuffliu' Joe," making his fifth defense of the title in IS months, hasn't entered a ring since he knock ed out Max Schmeling in the first round last June. The challenger, on the other hand, has had 11 fights in the last year, or a total of 95 rounds. Louis, at his Pompton Lakes, N. J., camp is so worried over the fight that all he does is train, eat, sleep and listen to the photograph. His hand lers say he is in top condition and will enter the ring determined to finish off John Henry as quickly as possible. John Henry, in nearby Summit, N. J., radiated confidence and Baid he would be so speedy that Joe will think he is facing three men. "I'm going in there with the idea of outboxing Joe," said John Henry today. "And I think I can. I don't intend to try for a knockout but if the opportunity comes why I'll just put everything I have into a punch and see what happens." Both men will conclude heavy training on Monday. Louis will have the physical edge over the Arizona boy who Is recognized as light heavyweight champion by the Na tional Boxini association. Joe will scale around 201 pounds to John Henry's 183; he will have a one and three-quarter edge in height,- but only an inch and a half in reach.

Much of the Ak Royal's equipment is secret and awaits trial in service condi tions. The practical tests it will un dergo as soon as the ship gets to sea will provide a measure of the new carter's value as a fighting unit. Crew to Number 1,600 The Ark Royal Is the first British warship to be designed exclusively as an aircraft carrier. Her full com plement for seagoing duty will com prise some 1,600 men and about 140 ofTicers. Hangar space is provided below decks for 60 modern war planes. The flag of Rear Admiral G. C. Royle, senior Fleet Air Arm officer, flies at the masthead. Basically, the Ark Royal conforms to the design of other aircraft car riers. She has two long hangars. Three lifts convey planes to and from the deck. The control superstruc ture rises above deck level on the starboard side. In the fore of this deck are two ramps used for acceler ated take-off. The defensive arma ment of the ship consists of 4.5 inch anti-aircraft guns. "Pom-pom" multiple-barrel guns give further pro tection. Located in a comprehensive con trol tower is an air intelligence of fice, where check will be kept on movements of aircraft patrolling per- IF yon are bitten by the frost this winter, with freezing of an ex posed part, don't make the mistake of vigorously rubbing the chilled portion of your anatomy with snow or any thing else. This advice may upset some preconceived no tions, but every expert on first aid Is agreed that snow - rub bing Is bad for frostbite. Whv? Dr. J. A. Tobey Because snow Is usually dirty and gritty. It may break the skin and cause a serious infection. What should you do? Warm the frozen part carefully and gradually. If a finger is frozen, for example, put it next to your body under the armpit and let it thaw out there. Or bathe It in cold water. Keep frozen part3 away from hot stoves, open fires, and hot radiators. You may rub or massage the frozen part gently, taking care not to break the skin. Then wrap in clean cotton. wooL Take hot drinks such U tea or milk. How do you know when yon are frostbitten? A fmrtn r. flnro- toe, or nose gets colder than the rest of the body and loses all sen sation. The skin becomes gray, aud will not blanch when pressed. A bad case of frostbite should be treated by a physician, since dan gerous blisters and even gangrene may develop. The best treatment for frostbite Is to prevent it. When the tempera ture falls below 20 degrees Fahren heit, wear sufficiently heavy and warm clothes, preferably made of pure wooL In very cold weather, woolen gloves are best, aDd woolen stockings and 60X are necessary or desirable. Persons who are properly nour ished, and who avoid fatigue, will be much less likely to suffer from frostbite and the resulting chil blains. If you are anemic, or have poor circulation, you are ready prey to frost and cold. Build up your resistance to cold, therefore, with a liberal intake of such foods as milk, whole wheat and white breads with plenty of butter, eggs, fruits, yellow vege tables. lean meats, leafy vegetables, potatoes, and nuts. These' foods give you vitamins, iron and other minerals; enough of them will also furnish you with adequate calorics, or h ft at Onlta haps a hundred miles away. Guarded Against Fire Fuel, oil, and water pipes, run ning along the "walls" of the ship, provide time-saving services for re fueling after flights. From the "roof" of the hangars project nu merous nozzles from whi, in emer gency, anti-fire liquid can be spray ed. Curtains of fire-resistig eteel divide the hagar up ito separate com partmets. An extensive space is set aside for aircraft spares nuts, bolts, wings, spars, radio equipment. Innumer able steel shelves and racks await the thousands of parts needed for the fleet of aircraft. Padded racks In one sections are ready to take sea plane floats. When necessary, these will be fitted to landplanes on board, thus converting them into temporary seaplanes. The Ark Royal is the first of six new aircraft carriers ordered for the royal navy. Four of these are now being built, each approximating 23.- 000 tens. -All will beable to reach a sieed of 31 knots, enabling air craft to take off from and land on the flight decks even in a dead calm. Soon the navy will be able to take to sea in aircraft carriers some 4oo fim-line aircraft, a formidable air armada which will be supplemented by about 100 aircraft carried iu battleships and cruisers fitted with catapult launching sear.
