orchestra world with Cab Cal"
loway and Duke Ehington,
reaches the climax of his ca
reer on Wednesday, November

plies the musical background to
Irvin S, Cobb plantation - how
heard on a coast-to-coast net
work over WEAF.
Webb, whose music is known
^o dance lovers everywhere, was
chosen from a wide selection

Tobacco Used as Remedy
for Cholera in France
During I lie cholera epidemic In
France in ISdl the use of tobacco
was said to induce immunity. To
ward olf illness while the great
plague of 10(15 was in progress in
London everyone was urged to
smoke. Small children were com
pelled to take tobacco. At Eton
clnsses were instructed to pause
and light up at frequent intervals,
writes Charles Sniutny In the Chi
cago Tribune,
Who first brought the plant to
Europe is not established, nor is it
certain who smoked the first pipe
ful. Jean Nicot, whose name re
mains today In nicotine, sent to
bacco seeds to France about 1560.
Within five years Sir John Haw
kins returned to England with to
bacco. Most of Europe and parts
of Africa and Asia had the weed
by the opening of the Seventeenth
century. Snuff was preferred in
France for many years. The "drink
ing of tobacco," as smoking was
termed In England, became com
mon and later fashionable through
the example of Sir Walter Raleigh.
Every schoolboy knows the leg
end of the drenching of Sir Waiter
Raleigh by his valet. This faith
ful fellow, for the first time seeing
smoke Issuing from the mouth and
nostrils of his master, believed
him to be afire and promptly emp
tied a howl of tvater, ale, or beer
over Sir Walter. The beverage
changes as do the characters In the
Hnecdote. Slightly varied versions
are given for Richard Tarleton and
others. Another Sir Walter Ra
leigh yarn involves a wager with
Queen Elizabeth. He bet that he
could weigh tobacco smoke. First
he weighed a pipeful of tobacco,
then smoked It and subtracted the
weight of the ashes.
Community Chest for
1937 to be Increased
Tho Gommunty Chest budget for
1937 Is $546,683 85, an increase of
$53,673, or more than 10 per cent
over the amount raised last year.
W- Dal« Clark, president of the
Chest, announced this figure Sat
urday after individual members of
the budget committee surveyed
each Community Chest 'agency in
relation to its request
Agencies requested $632,998 '.o
handle their total needs, Clark said,
but the committee slashed almost
$70,000 from that figure to reduce
the burden on Community Chest
donors. He Said each agency was
investigated by a member of the
budget committee, and its work,
programs and needs were carefully
weighed before the committee fix
ed the amount it should receive.
Members of the committee, head
ed, by Melvin Bekins, -are; Joel
Wright, Francis P Matthew, J
Francis McDermott, W. Dale Clark,
W- F Cozad, Walter Plerpoint, J.
L- Haugh and Mrs T- L . Davis .
Explaining the increased budget
for 1937, Bekins stated:
“Welfare groups, children's
homes and health organizations
are faced with the prospect of
caring for a greatly increased
number of clients. Practically all
agencies are working short-hand
ed, and every one of them is con
fronted with the problem of in
creases in maintenance, operation,
food and general living costs”
Twenty-eight agencies are in
cluded in the 1937 budget, and
their needs vary from $600 to $90,
000 for the year. In every instance
tho Community Chest will attempt
to provide only for the Omaha
cases, leaving outstate and other
clients to be cared for through
service fees, other subscriptions
and interest on endowments, Bekin

Longest Coast Lina
Florida Is considered lo have the
longest coast line of any state. Ac
cording to tiie United States Coast
and Geodetic survey this coast line,
exclusive of Islands, Is 1,197 miles,
including 399 on the Atlantic and
798 on tho Gulf of Mexico. Califor
nia Is listed ns second with 813
miles of coast. Lake shore line Is
not regarded ns const line h.v this
government department. If It were,
Michigan would have the second
longest const line, according to this
same authority. According lo oth
er authorities, Michigan has 905
miles of coast line In file Upper
Peninsula and 810 In the Lower
Peninsula, a total of 1,715 miles.
The coast of Maine is so indented
that if a small unit of measure
ment were employed that state
would have a coast line of about
3,000 miles. As measured by the
methods of the Coast nnd Geodetic
survey, it has only 228 miles.
Strive to Excel
Strive always to excel; try al
ways to keep that attitude of mind
which abhors defeat; for it Is a
proved fact that man's nature Is
so adaptable that he can accustom
hiusclf to mediocrity and numb bis
sense of failure. But the converse
of this Is also true, making It pos
sible for one to train oneself to
be satisfied with nothing less than
the best, and with the failure Idea
made so repellent that all one’s
faculties will be kept constantly on
the alert to discover opportunity,
p&ssess It, improve It and through
it carve out a significant and satis
fying destiny. A study of the ca
reers of successful men will reveal
this attitude ns one of the under
lying factors in their progress. It
Is an unfailing source of Inspira
tion and the fountain from which
flows that matchless determination
so pronounced In those who lead.
Home of the Hemp Plant
The native home of the hemp
plant Is Asia, near the Caspian sea.
Wild hemp is not used in rope mak
ing. Italy, Russia, France, India
and parts of the United States and
Canada are the chief hemp produc
ing countries. Hemp can be raised
several years In succession and
three bushels of seed are required
to plant an acre of ground, accord
ing to a writer in the Indiana
Farmer’s Guide. Hemp demands a
rich, light soil. The three chief
products of hemp are: The fibers
of the stem; the resinous secretion,
and the oily seed. The leaves and
blossoms are used as a drug and
intoxicant for smoking and chew
ing. The oil extracted from hemp
seed Is used In making soap. The
pulp that is left Is a good feed for
Various Crises Are Linked
to Solar Activity.
Cambridge, Mass,—In line with
the "sunspot theory" of economic
and industrial activity, there has
come from Harvard's astronomical
observatory a declaration by Dr.
Loring D. Andrews, astronomer,
that sunspot activity can be cor
related with such varied phenomena
as weather conditions, economic
tranquility and distress, wars, floods
and international crises.
While admitting the correlation
between earthly phenomena and un
usually active spots on the surface
of the sun. Doctor Andrews, in dis
cussing the subject, states that the
actual source of the correlation
must be sought in other solar pe
culiarities which are correlated in
turn with sunspot activity.
Especially "amazing," according
to Doctor Andrews, is the correla
tion of economic prosperity and de
pression with periods of sunspot
maxima which has held true over a
period of the past two centuries.
Using this correlation, the astron
omer states that "it would seem
that all the king's horses and all
the king's men cannot bring pros
perity back again; but the sun can."
Next Maxima in 1939
With a sunspot maxima expected
in 1939, the Harvard scientist tenta
tively predicts an increase in stock
market activity at that time, for
"as the number of sunspots mounts,
prosperity turns the corner; as the
number of sunspots diminishes,
prosperity hides itself in a depres
"It may be pointed out,” he con
tinues, "that the last sunspot maxi
mum was in 1928, an epoch in the
economic history of the United
States to which one commonly re
fers as the good old days." The
last sunspot minimum occurred in
1933. Some one has mentioned an
economic depression similarly dat
The blemishes on the face of the
sun, with which Doctor Andrews
finds so many correlations, have
been demonstrated, according to the
scientist, to be huge solar cyclones,
whiriwinds in the solar atmosphere,
accompanied by pronounced mag
netic conditions. Each sunspot, he
says, is a huge magnet as a result
of the whirling of electrically
charged particles within it.
Sunspots have cycles of eleven
years. Maximum spottedness has
come in 1906, 1917 and 1928 since
the turn of the century and mini
mum spoltedness in 1901, 1913, 1923
and 1933.
Since the sun rotates on its axis
in a period of 25 days, Doctor An
drews states that it is impossible
for the earth to be permanently in
the range of a sunspot or a sunspot
group, but when the spots are near
the earth, such terrestrial phenom
ena as auroral displays, electric
storms and effects on long-distance
radio reception are noted.
Sunspot Activity.
“All of these phenomena,” Doctor
Andrews declares, “show a close
correlation with sunspot activity
and particularly with the passage
of an active sunspot group across
the central area of the sun’s disk;
the aurorae, borealis and australis,
perform beautifully, magnetic com
passes oscillate to and fro over a
small amplitude centered in their
normal position, and long-distance
radio reception is either improved
or hampered. In connection with
the last of these It should be said
that whether reception is improved
or hampered depends upon the
wave-length of the signals and oth
er factors related to radio trans
lilt: CA^idlldtiuu Ui UlC bUHCiauuu
between sunspot activity and eco
nomic prosperity and other items on
earth is explained as being indirect
ly caused by the solar phenomena.
When sun spots are at a maxi
mum, he finds, the earth’s receipt
of heat from the sun is above nor
mal. Strangely enough, this does
not make for warmer weather be
cause it increases the evaporation
of water from the earth’s surface
and therefore the weather is cooler
than usual and there ia increased
Norway’* Home of Giant*
About in the middle of southern
Norway there rises from the great
central plateau a vast wilderness
of peaks and glaciers, Interspersed
with hundreds of brooks and lakes,
teeming with trout. This national
park is the Jotunheim, a name
which means the Home of the Gi
ants. In the Norse mythology It is
considered the home of the Jotuns
(giants), trolls and other enemies
of the good gods, consequently the
home of everything evil. Except
for a few hunters, no one had seen
much of this dreaded district until
a little more than a hundred years
ago, when the scientists of Oslo
“discovered” It.
