Indians Popped Corn * 1
Popcorn was raised by the Indi
ans long before Columbus arrived in
the Western hemisphere>Jt became
an important commercial crop
about 1880. Formerly it was sup
posed that the popping of corn was
caused by the volatilization of oil
in the grain. The explosion is due
simply to the formation of steam
within the grain when it is heated
—neither air nor volatile oil, experts
say, is concerned in the process.
Popcorn with a louder “pop” has

Covers the Entire World
An airliner travels 464,000 miles
per year, compared to an average
Pullman distance of 145,000 miles.
Since Pearl Harbor the number of
civil pilots in the United States has
Increased about 400 per cent, from
100,800 in 1941 to 400,000 last year.
The past year America’s swarm of
civilian planes increased nearly 122
per cent. The planes and pilots are
aided by nearly 5,000 farmers who
voluntarily make daily observations
for the U S weather bureau.
Home Bnilding Facts
The retail cost of building mat®
rials is about double the cost ot
their production, says a Twentieth
Century fund report. Used houses
account roughly for three fourths of
annual residential sales and 10 per
cent of the total new dwellings be
fore the war were produced under
public auspices. About 40 per cent
of the communities in the United
States do not have building codes,
^tattlers Won’t Tell
Popular supposition has it that
the number of rattles borne by a
snake indicates its age in years. A
new rattle is required each time
that a snake sheds its skin and sev
eral rattles may be added annually,
the California Fish and Game com
mission reports. The studies indi
cate that young snakes in their year
of growth gain, besides the original
button, two to four rattles. Medium
sized snakes, during their second or
third year, often gain two rattles
annually. Adults most frequently
add only one rattle a year, but
sometimes gain two.
A Open Letter to Mr. Morris
Levey, Manager, General
Appliance Company, Dist

and Appliances ..
By Aneita Hayes, President National
Negro Congress and former Northside
Y. W. C. A. Executive
A article in the last issue of the
Omaha Guide attracted my attention.
It was so unusual that I decided to
write this letter to you. While the Wor
ld joins in the Universal Chorus “Peace
on Earth, Goodwill toward Men”. I
considered it an opportune time to look
upon many present blessings, and to
talute you, Mr. Levey, whc» proved to
the colored youngsters of this city that
you mean Peace on Earth, Goodwill
toward Men through your actions of
donating a load of new toys to be dis
tributed by the American Legion Roos.
evelt Post No. 30. Through this mag
namious gesture, you, Mr. Levey, to the
needy youngsters demonstrated demo
cracy in action. I wish to present,
an orchid to you and hope that the
coming year's will be bontiful with sue.
cess and happiness.
Fresh Produce Markets
Faneuil Hall market in Boston is
200 years old and the French mar
ket in New Orleans is 150 years old.
Other markets, handling fresh
fruits and vegetables that are more
than 100 years old include Pearl
street market in Cincinnati, Dock
street market and Callowhill street
market in Philadelphia, and the
Roanoke avenue market at Norfolk.
Many others have been operating
for more than 50 years. When these j
markets were built the produce was
hauled by horse and wagon, or
brought in by water. Most of the ■
produce now arrives by rail.
Replacement of Poles
The average life of a wooden wire
service pole is 20 years. Sixty-four
million wooden poles are in use to- •
day for power and telephone lines;
16 poles per mile for power lines
and 40 a mile for telephone lines. ,
With the present number of poles,
the industry must replace nearly 15
million poles each year.
Injuries to Workmen
Work injuries to 3,063,000 workers J
were reported last year, which
means that more than 47 million
work da vs were lost to production.
