s Friday, September 30, 1938 Lights of New York] by L. L STEVENSON • I I Dates: What with an escort serv- ice for lonely women visitors to New York and a more recent similar service for lonely New York male visitors, now comes an "introduc- tion service" for young men and young women. The announcements state: "introductions so correct your grandmother would approve • . . which make your life in New York as vivid and exciting as a Disney cartoon." Applicants for membership must give references which are "tactfully but carefully" investigated. They must also sub- mit to an interview in which their backgrounds and hobbies are learned. Character sketches and photographs are filed and those wishing company merely have to thumb through the files until a suit- able candidate is found. Member- ship costs $3 and thereafter, a charge of a buck for each introduc- tion. Thus a boy or a girl with only a small cash capital need no longer be lonely in the great city. Aid: Loneliness is not the only New York enemy against which an organized campaign is being waged. A new institution is designed to minimize the handicaps of bachelor- hood. For a fee, buttons will be sewed on, socks mended and other chores usually performed by wives, mothers and sisters will "be done. Not only that but apartments will, be looked after, beds made, clothes sent out to be pressed and if desired, arrangements made for parties. Withal bachelors may have many of the benefits of matrimony without being called on to make explana- tions when they come home show - ing the effects of foolish water or if they happen to stay out extra late. CRy Life: On Fiftieth street, near Sixth avenue, a dancing Negro . . . His clothing covered with ribbons and artificial flowers . . . Safety pins stuck in his bare feet . . . As he shuffles about, he accompanies himself on a more or less musical instrument fashioned from a tin can • . . His reward, an occasional pen- ny... A self-absorbed sailor walk- ing along Forty-eighth street play- ing a tune on a toy piccolo . . . At Times square and Forty-fifth street, a young man hurrying to the assist- ance of a drunk who isn't doing a good job of escorting a blind man across the street . . . On Forty- second street, between Fifth and Sixth avenues, bootblacks grabbing their chairs and shine boxes at sight of a cop, running into a sub- way entrance to hide and emerging and resuming business when the coast is clear• $ $ • Dark: The object of most sun- starved New Yorkers, especially feminine ones, is to acquire as much tan as possible during the summer months. Early in the sea- son, boiled lobster complexions are common because of a Sunday at Coney. But as the Sundays pass, with perhaps two weeks' vacation up in the Catskills or down at the shore, the little stenographer achieves the shade of an aborigine, the cost 'of suntan oil and various sunburn soothing ointments merely being regarded as overhead• In the past, I was diverted by tracing sun- tan patterns on the bodies of chorus girls when they resumed work in the fall. Such pastime is impossible now. They.wear more.on.the stage than they do on the beaches. $ $ • Sights: These old eyes have be. come more Or less accustomed to the vartous spectacles witnessed daily on the streets of New York. Bat the bther afternoon while stroll ing along Park avenue and wishing that paragraphs would write' them- selves, I stopped and rubbed my eyes. Advancing toward ae was iii i iii i ii Public Welcome Chicken Dinner Every Sunday 12 to 1 at the an ex¢eedingly fi-ie lady, glittering with precious stones arid clinking with gold circlct on wrists and ankles while in her baud was a pink ribbon. At the end of the ribbon was a pompous goose wearing a gold collar and gold anklets. By the time I had recovered enough to ask questions, the lady and the goose were gone. Luck: When a man bought some smokes in a Times square cigar store, the clerk shoved back a $10 bill he offered. Said Uncle Sam hadn't made it. So the customer, heaving a sigh, shoved the coun- terfeit into his coat pocket, pro- duced another bill, paid, and went out. On Forty-second street, a young man bumped into him, apol- ogized and was gone. So was the bum bill. And the man is won- dering what the pickpocket will do with it. © nell Syndlcate.WNU Service. Missionaries in Liberia Make Long Jungle Treks WASHINGTON.--In the perform- ance of their duties, American mis- sionaries in Liberia travel hundreds of miles each year through the steaming, jungles in hammocks borne by natives, according to the Right Reverend Leopold Krult, Prot- estant Episcopal bishop to the Af- rican republic. For six months of the year the bishop and his assistants explore the jungle or travel up and down 450 miles of coastline in the bish- op's launch, seeking to convert the natives. In the other six months, Bishop Krull said, torrential rains make missionary work impossible except along a small strip of coast. College Shows 'Oldest Known' Copy of Gospel. ALLENTOWN, PA.--Muhlenberg college has in its historical collec- tion a few tattered fragments of papyrus, covered with Greek char- acters--chly remains of the oldest known copy of the original New Testament. Through the Egypt exploration fund the manuscript was unearthed near the town of Oxrhyncus. It contains the inscription from Mat- thew 12, in which Christ said: "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to dissolution; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand." The college also has in its collec- tion a Sixth century anmlet, owned by an early Christian, who used it as a charm against illness. The in- scription on the arrtulet represents a crude cross, in the center of which is drawn a picture, believed to rep- resent the owner. The inscription comprises verses from Matthew 4, in which the dis- ciple says Jesus went about Galilee "healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people." An early manuscript from De- mosthenes' oration on "The False Embassy" also is included in the collection. Prof. Robert C. Horn of Muh/en- berg's Greek department explained the relics were given to the col- lege by the Egypt Exploration fund in repayment for donations given by the college. Frozen Wastes Added to U. S. Approximately 200,000 square miles of frozen wastes in the Ant. arc.tic have been added to the United States through the exploration. MT. ADAMS SUN Hordes Rush to New Goldfields Stories of Sudden Wealth Lure Prospectors to Northern Canada. EDMONTON, ALBERTA.--Tales of sudden wealth have brought pros- pectors by the hundreds to this town, starting point of the trek to the new goldfields of the Northwest• Already during the past two years 4,000 claims, extending over an area of 55 miles in length, have been staked. Prospectors who started out with dreams of riches have returned and have been able to sell their claims to several of the large min- ing corporations of Canada and the United States for prices ranging from $50,000 to-$500,000. Three .new boom towns have sprung up. They are Goldfields, on Lake Athabasca; Saskatchewan. on the north border of North West Ter- ritories; Yellowknife and Gordon Lake, N. W. T. Await Production. The test of the wealth of the new fields will be made when three prop- erties come into production in a few months, as soon as milling equipment can be delivered, erected and started. Meanwhile prospectors and oth- ers set off daily on tours of aerial exploration. Forty airplanes which operate winter and summer and cover an area of 500,000 miles fly these men into the unexplored parts, leave them for a few days, then re- turn and pick them up and fly them to another spot 50 or 100 miles far- ther on. In this manner several ricfl "strikes" have been made. The,,aaft-also deliver thou- sands of tons of freight. The mines are entirely dependent upon them for supplies during the winter, when the Mackenzie river is frozen over. During summer power boats and barges operate on the river, rushing in as much freight as possible• Oil Fields Found. Oil discovered at McMurray, about 300 miles from here, will soon supply fuel to the river boats and airplanes and to the diesel-operated mining plants of the mines at an economical cost. Refineries and storage tanks have already been completed. Although "Old Gus" Nyman, the original discoverer of Goldfields, is now penniless--his secret leaked out before he had a chance to stake his claims--fortune has smiled on oth- ers. Sam Otto, an "old timer" in the obra Plant Is Offered As a Grasshopper Check ' COLORADO SPRINGS.The solu- tion to the nation's grasshopper 'problem, according to M. W. Dye, botanist, of Seattle, is the grisly cobra plant, which he says will eat the grasshoppers before they get around to gnawing in wheat and corn fields• The plantDarlingtonia chrysam- phora--resembles a hooded-cobra reared in striking position. The plant lures insects down its hollow stalk and then kills them by acids at the base of the stem. The cobra develops a form of deli- cate honey around its "mouth" to attract insects. Dye says he has cut open numerous of the plants and found grasshoppers, ants, bee- tles, flies, spiders and snails in them. During the winter, when the plants have no insects on which to live, they must be fed with small pieces of hamburger once a month, he says. 'Growing' of Stones is Accomplished by Briton ALDEBURGH, ENG.  William Barber, general millwright of Iken Cliff, near here, has announced that he can make stones grow, and that he has been doing so for 15 years. They grow about three-sixteenths of an inch a year, he claims• Barber has found that they do so only in the spring and fall, that they "grow" only slightly at first, that they need water like vegetation. He "grows" them in an old oil drum or can filled with earth within about six inches of the top. To make them absolutely round they must be turned over at regular periods. Barber says he treated an old stone used "s a step for horsemen moffRing to the saddle. Today it is too large to put into the biggest farm wa don. -Are You Registered ?- The Pessimist A pessimist is usually a man who has money and knows how to ke@p .it. game, sold his 18 claims to a min- ing syndicate or $50,000iast Febru. ary. Two young men, the Ryan brothers, sold their claims in the Yellowknife area to a Canadian min- ing corporation for a reported $500,- 000. An adjoining group of claims was sold by the owners to another syndicate for $15(],000. "The commitments already made by leading mining corporations will guarantee development work for the next 25 years," said L. E. Drum- mond, manager of the Alberta and North West Chamber of Mines. "And if all the claims up to the Arctic circle are developed it will take 100 yearsl" TASTE TELLS Try BROWN'S CAFE Bingen, Washington Fireman 's Annual FOODS OF QUALITY, HOT OFF THE STOVE AWAIT tOU AT DLG'S CAFE.
