Omaha home are really “going
modern”. This is particularly true of
automatic hot water service. A few
years ago an automatic gas hot wat
er heater was a rarity—today it is
estimated that sixty percent of the
homes in metropolitan Omaha are
equipped with automatic gas hot
water service.
Tremendous sales increases in the
sale of automatic water heaters in
dicate this trend.
“Sales volume on automatic gas
water heaters in Omaha has doubled
over last year,” states W. J. Barber,
Assistant to the General Manager of
the Metropolitan Utilities District.
A number of factors are respons
ible for this gratifying increase in
automatic gas hot water installations.
Plumbers have been very active in
their efforts to acquaint their cus
tomers with the merits of “instant
hot water”, and a great volume of
installations has come through this
Lower prices and attractive in
stallment terms have been another
important factor. Special effort has
been made by the Metropolitan Utili
ties District sales and advertising
departments, in cooperation with reg
istered plumbers, to acquaint the pub
' lie -with the distinct advantages of
automatic gas water heating. Gener
al improvement is also partially re
sponsible, along with a nationwide
movement toward household modern
ization. .
Omahans were quick to recognize
the comforts and convenienct of auto
matic gas hot water service. Sales
of heaters this Fall and Winter are
estimated to be more than double
1934 figures for the same seasons.
Harlem Has
Most Densely
Populated Block
New York, Oct. 5—(ANP)—When
it comes to population congestion,
Harlem leads all other sections of
New York. A survey recently com
pleted by relief workers reveals that
the most densly populated block in
the city is Harlem, between 7th and j
8th avenues and 142nd and 143rd
streets. It has 3,871 inhabitants.
Eight blocks in Harlem have an j
excess of 3,000 residents, or a total;
population exceeding that of Dan-,
bury, Conn., which covers 2,432 acres.
There are approximately 40 acres in
eight Harlem blocks.
However, congestion isn’t what it j
used to be. There are slightly more
than 700 people to an acre in Har
lem’s most thickly populated block,
but 45 years ago there were several
blocks in the old Eleventh ward from
800 to 1,000 inhabitants. Even as
late as 25 years ago, there were cer
tain areas east of the Bowery with
between 800 and 900 people to the

Addis Ababa, Oct. 5— (ANP) —
Princess Tsahai, voung daughter of
Emperor Haile Selassie, broke with
the tradition of the imperial house,
when, with her father’s consent, she
became a volunt er worker for the
first field ambulance unit of the Eth
iopian army which already has 1,139,
000 warriors cr 11 percent of the
population, mobilized.
Attended by only a single guard,
the princess drives in her car to the
headquarters of the Ethiopian Wo
men’s Work association where she
joins 31 women of the court after
donning a white smock over her rove
of flowered silk. Three native nuns
from the Roman Catholic Mission are
instructing the women,. Using copies
of bandage rolling machines made
by a native artisan from a model
brought here by air from London,
the workers soon learn quickly and
all, Princess 7 salmi included, add
their work to her pile.
The Princess, who speaks English
fluently, visited leading haspitals on
her visit to London some years ago.
It is her regret that she was not able
to foi'ecast the impending clash and
thus take advantage of learning more
about the care of the wounded. She
realizes Ethiopia is without the fa
cilities possessed by other natons for
the care of their soldiers, and is aid
