Aufo Scooter
for Postmen's
Use Gets Tests
Carrier's Invention May Be Answer
to Speed Need Mounted
on Four Wheels.
COLUMBIA, S. C. (UP) Postmen
who always ring twice soon may be
tooting a horn to signal the arrival
of a letter if the invention of a
Columbia letter carrier is adopted
by the government.
A motorized scooter that, by test,
cut from one to two hours off the
time required for an eight-mile route
is Henry R. Smith's boon to foot
sore men-in-gray.
B. H. Kaigler, superintendent of
mails in Columbia, said after test
ing the machine that he would
recommend its adoption by the gov
ernment. The tests were authorized
by W. W. Howes, first assistant postmaster-general,
and the government
asked for a thorough report.
Mounted on Four Wheels
Smith, a veteran carrier, has teen
working on the vehicle about a year
and a half. It is a four-wheel convey
ance, about 4 feet long and powered
with a five-eighth horsepower in
ternal combustion engine. However,
Smith said a one and a half or two
horsepower motor would be better for
general use;
"This five-eighths horsepower mo
tor isn't really strong enough to
stand up under continuous use," he,
Operation of the scooter is simple
enough for a child to understand. The
driver 'stands at the rear and with
one hand steers the machine, and
with the other operates a control
that throws the engine out of gear
and puts on the brakes at the same
time. Speeds range from four to 12
miles an hour.
Initial Cost $150
Smith built the machine at a cost
of approximately $150. Kaigler said
if it was adopted by the postal de
partment the cost would be cut be
tween 150 and $75 by mass produc
tion. The scooter could not be used in
the business district, but would al
low carriers in residential districts
to cover a much larger area at a
faster speed.
Kaigler believed the government
would give the invention wider and
more thorough tests, and if it proved
as successful as it has so far it was
possible it would . be adopted. In
such case, postmen probably would
be granted an allowance to onerate
their vehicles. Smith estimated it
cost him about 5 cents to drive thel
scooter 15 miles.
Cardinal Dougherty, Archbishop of
Phildelphia, said today that Pope Pius
had blesed the cause of the beatifica
tion of Mother Elizabeth Seton, of
Lmmittsburg, Md., who, if connon
ized, would be the first American born
Mcther Seton, converted to Cathol
icsm from protestantism, was born in
1774 and died in 1821. She founded
the Parochial school system in the
United States. President Roosevelt is
her distant relative.
Cardinal Dougherty was received
in audience by the pope this morning.
The audience was given in the ncblc
apartment of the Vatican and lasted
45 minutes.
Cardinal Dougherty said he enjoy
ed listening to the pope's reminisc
ence of his visit to the United States
as Cardinal Pacelli.

Japan's Goods
Seen Refused
Most in West
Survey Indicates Boycott Accounts
for 26 Perpent of Trade Loss;
Some Imports Increase.
erica's private boycott of Japanese
goods, as a result of the invasion of
China, accounts for approximately
26 per cent of the total $52,000,.000
decrease in imports from Japan dur-
Stein-ijng tne n,.st year of the war, accord
ing to to Institute of Pacific Rela
The institute arrived at its conclu
sions through a questionnaire sent
to labor organizations, department
stores, chambers of commerce and
similar organizations throughout the
Finally, a sample test was made
in Toledo, O., as a representative
middle west city by a house-to-house
canvass to determine how many fam
ilies were refusing to buy Japanese
In the last year before the war,
the United States imported from
Japan $204,000,000 worth of goods.
Then, in the first 12 months of the
war, this total of imports fell to
$152,000,000. Of this $52,000,000
decrease, however, the institute esti
mated that only about 26 per cent
has been due to the boycott.
Other Boycotts in Far East
Similar boycotts, it pointed out,
are being carried out on a private
basis in England, France, India,
Canada, Australia, New Zealand and
other countries. The most effective
of these are those of the states of
Southeast Asia.
The substantial results from these
boycotts, the institute found, have
been more than double those of the
United States.
An analysis showed that Amer
ican private boycott had operated
in three different lines of Japanese
The loss of trade in class A, or
easily recognizable consumers' goods
such as toys, brushes, and earthen
ware and for which substitutes are
available, amounted to 23 per cent
of the decrease, or $11,000,000.
In class B goods, raw silkj for
which substitutes' cannot ' easily 'be
found, and which constituted' 52 per
cent of American inipurts from Japan
before the war, the decline was neg
ligible, with only $3,400,000 being
attributed to the boycott.
Class C, which consists of pro
ducers' goods and for which there
are few available substitutes, such as
menthol, camphor, and perilla oil and
semi-manufactured goods on the
wholesale level, accounted for 5 per
cent of the decrease, or about $10,
200,000. Some Imports Increase .
In certain classes of Japanese im
ports there was even an increase.
This was especially true in case of
zipper products.
The survey indicated that senti
ment in favor of bojvott was much
stranger than actual action in carry
ing it out.
The consumers' boycott movement
was found to be strongest in the
northwest and on the west coast;
fading into ineffectiveness in the
middle west and south and in Los
Angeles. Urban centers were found
to be more active in the boycott
than rural districts.
The only political appear to the
boycott was found to be an intensi
fication of the "buy American" move
ment. "While the boycott movement in
the United States and elsewhere,"
the institute said, "has not, as some
sponsors hoped, delivered a telling
blow to Japan's war machine, it has
nevertheless resulted in loss by Japan
of a substantial amount of trade and
commercial good will."
KEOKUK, la., March 9 (UP) The
sister states of Iowa and Missouri
are ready today to settle a tcentury
old boundary dispute the Des Moines
river got them into.
Until 110 years ago the river was
the accepted boundary all the way
to its confluence with the Mississippi
river at Keokuk. Then the river
changed its course. Iowa claimed a
parcel of land south of the new river
bed. Missouri claimed some of the
north side.
Several times both states sent
troops to the border to quiet disputes
over the 525 acres -in -question.
Two lawyers representing the
states decided here yesterday that
Missouri should have 325 acres south
of the river and Iowa should get the
other 200.
If their legislatures approve the
deal, the Des Moines river once, more
becomes the accepted boundary.
LONDON, March 9 (UP) Quar
ters close to the government indi
cated today that Great Britain was
preparing to challenge the right ot
Spanish nationalists to blockade the
republican toast and that it might
increase warship protection for Brit
ish ships in the Mediterranean.
A spokesman explained that even
if Great Britain had granted beliger
ent rights which it has consistent
ly withheld the government would
regard the new nationalist threat to
sink ships at sea tfs an act of piracy.
Atom Warfare
Slowly Adding
to Suns Heat
Science Generally Agrees Warmth of
Earth Is Increasing Sun
Absorbs Energy.
will not start to cool off for at least
another 10,000,000,000 years, ac
cording to a symposium of scientists
held here jointly by the American
Philosophical Society and the Frank
lin Institute.
The orb has lasted at least 5.000,
000,000 years and perhaps 100,000,-000,-600
years, and avoids burning it
scif cut by utilizing the cores o car
bon atoms, the scientists wero told.
Dr. Henry Norris Russell, professor
of astronomy and director of the
Princeton University observatory,
explained the theory developed by
Dr. Hans Albreeht Bethe, former pro
fessor at the University of Munich
and now professor of physics at Cor
nell Univehsity.
Sun Absorbs Energy
Briefly stated in lay terms. Dr.
Bether's theory holds that while
earthly creatures consume the out
side of carbon atoms with oxygen,
the sun absorbs the energy from the
cores of the' atoms.' Carbon, it was
explained, is the basij constituent of
all matter.
: Dr. Bethe's theory found that on
the sun, atoms of hydrogen and car
bon "bombard" each other until a
nitrogen atom results. The nitrogen
is further bombarded by hydrogen
and helium follows.-The process con
tinues until the helium -ends as car
bon again.
While the 'littfe' warfare of the
atoms progresses, the scientists ex
plained, energy is given off.
The atomic energy contained in a
sugar cube, Dr. Russell said, could
drive a transatlantic liner to Europe
and back, if it were properly har
nessed. He used the illustration to
demonstrate how muchenergy must
be created to supply the heat given
off by the sun.
Fuel Estimate . Offered
To supply the sun's heat for one
second, he explained, 10,000,000,000,
000,000 (ten million billion) tons of
coal would have to be burned. If the
sun were burning itself up, as earlier
theories held, he asserted, it would
have lasted only 0,4 65 years.
He estimated the sun's loss of
energy at 4,200,000 tons per second.
Dr. Bethe's theory .fits all avail
able data, and has been accepted by
many scientists as the answer to
how the sun manages to continue its
heat and life-giving existence.
Further, Dr. Itussell, expanding on
the Bethe theory, found that the
sun is gradually growing more lum
inous and the earth's temperature
will increase about one degree Fah
renheit in 100,000,000 years.
Earth to Get Hotter
Eventually, he said, the torrid and
temperate zones of the earth will
bo unlivable from the heat, and the
population, some millions of years
from now, will bo found only at the
North and South poles.
Other findings of the symposium
brought out that the earth, Venus
and Mars, while millions of miles
apart, have a common element
iron as their core,.
Mercury and the moon, on the
other hand, have centers of solid
The earth and the sun have the
same elements in common, in al
most identical proportions, except for
hydrogen and helium, which are more
abundant on the' sun.
The atmosphere of the sun is al
most chemically pure hydrogen.
The temperature at the center of
the sun is 7,400,009 degrees.

Smedley Butler
Lashes War on
Foreign Soil
Former Commander of Marine Corps
Lashes at the Alleged Foreign
Policy of Administration.
MIDDLETOWN, Conn., March 11
(UP) Major General Smedley D.
Butler, former commander of the
marine corps, said last night in an
other of his fiery attacks on Presi
dent Roosevelt's foreign policy, that
he would see to it that James Roose
velt fights in the front-line trenches
"if his father starts another war."
He was addressing the Wesleyan
University conference on "The Amer
ican Foreign Policy" and had almost
reached the end of his prepared
speech when, as if the thought had
just occurred to him, he clenched his
fist and shouted:
"I am talking in this rambling
Manner because I want you to get
blindly mad against all these damned
hypocrites who would have us fight
for democracies on foreign soil.
"If there is another war, I intend
to make James Roosevelt go to the
front-line trenches. He is a lieuten
ant colonel in the marines and if his
father starts this war business I am
coing to see that he goes. I am not
afraid. Let them shoot me. I'm all
through. Let's get shot here at home
if we're going to be shot."
He closed by saying "if we are
going to send boys out to fight every
twenty years for democracy, what
the hell's the use of keeping demo
cracy?" lie said no power on earth
could invade America and that this
country's peace policy should be a
strong coastal defense.
SHANGHAI, March 11 (UP) A
clash between United States marines
and Japanese military or gendarmes
occurred in the American defense
sector of Shanghai today, it was re
ported unofficially but reliably.
It was believed the reported clash
occurred in connection with Japanese
attempts to search houses for anti
Japanese suspects.
Neither American nor Japanese
authorities would confirm the 'report.
A marine spokesman said he had
been instructed to say nothing.'
The clash apparently occurred
when municipal police and detectives
visited the home of a Chinese resi
dent of the American defense sector
and discovered four Japanese mili
tary policemen in plain clothes guard
ing the resident e. They telephoned
to the marines .who sent two offi
cials and twenty men in a truck and
ordered the Japanese to leave the
sector, which they did.
PITTSBURGH, Pa., March 10
(UP) University of Pittsburgh to

John L. Sutherland and hundreds of
students quit their classes.
Approximately .( strikers were
massed in the university's commons
room while another loO strikers with
placards invaded the class rooms to
persuade more of the 3,800 students
to walk out.
Police were sent to the campus to
maintain order.
Strike leaders held "funeral ser
vices" over the "corpse of Pitt foot
ball." Students wore mourning bans
of black bearing the inscription
