New York. A nation-wide campaign

This combination of a two-headed mechanical cotton picker, operated
by a small electric motor and mounted on n compact garden tractor. Is said
to he able to pick MO pounds of cotton an hour. After the picking head has
removed tho burr, tho llulTy cotton Is drawn by a small blower through tho
hlg flexible tubing Into a container on the tractor.
Its use ordlnnry paints, varnishes and
shellacs can be removed from .furni
ture and carriages and other objects
without Injuring the. wood, and enam
els can bo taken from automobiles
without affecting the steel .body.
"Its solvent powers are so vigor
ous," said Dr. Lenher, "that It will
remove tho bitumen from soft conl,
but will not attack tho pure carbon
Dr. Lenher also sees a mllltnry pow-
caine and opium are brought In by
sailors on passenger and freight steam
ships. Easy to Land Drugs.
The authorities realize that It Is an
ensy matter for it harbor boatman to
load ids clothing with "dope" during
tho night. He Is not subjected to
dally search. So long as he maintains
reasonable caro and observance of
common sense In his methods lie can
continue Indefinitely. Drugs are easily
concealed. Federal authorities have
found opium in women's linlr, sewed
Into men's hat bands, contained In
artificial limbs-, lining the Inner tubes
of automobile tires, In consignments
of lumber and vegetables and even In
collars worn by dogs trained to uinke
dally trips across the Canadian bor
der. The solution of tho problem lies In
n federal act prohibiting the Impor
tation, manufacture and exportation
of huhlt-fonnlng drugs, except In such
limited amounts as are accessary for
tho legltlnmle uses- of the inedlcnl pro
fesslon, according to Itoyal S. Cope

known as activation.
"Tliu coconut charcoal used In the
gas mask," continued Dr. Lenher, "can

which Is a considerable advance over
the older steam activation at n white
The use of activated charcoal In the
extraction of gasoline from natural

Dr. Lenher said that the properties of
selenium oxychloilde are so unusual
that It Is likely to come Into common
use wherever research Is conducted.
The solvent, which was formerly
regarded as merely a laboratory curl-
oslty, Is finding its place In many In
dustries. The original statements con
cerning Its exceptional powers have
been amply verified, the speaker as
serted, by him and a group of students
who have been attracted to .tho lob

Once a Waste Product.
The raw material from which It Is
obtained was once a waste product
from the electrolytic reilnlng of copper,
for until recently the selenium from
these electrolytic slimes, while known
to the chemist ns a rare element, had
been considered ns almost valueless.
The solvent Itself Is a heavv llnuld.
and nearly odorless. It enn he readily
handled In a commercial way, how
ever, for were It the "universal solv-i
out" of alchemy it could not be trans-
ported, as no vessel could withstand,
This discovery of everyday uses for
a substance formed from discarded
material Is regarded by scientists as
a typical Illustration of the value of
