Victory Lunch Box How's the vim, vigor and vitamin content on the put-up lunches for your school chil- ~J~"'~ dre~ and defense . ~f.~,~--~, workers? You may ~.=~|~ } not realize it, but ~,~ ~ ~ have an important h~bearing on their intelligence quo- tient, for good, well balanced food makes both child and adult fit for whatever the day may bring. A poorly nourished body isn't recep- tive to learning exposure, nor is it capable of meeting the intensive re- quirements of physical or menta~ work. Lunches should ppll no punches. Just because they are compact, and it's difficult to have as much variety and hot fo&l as when you are pre- paring the lunch in your own kitchen, is no reason for skipping over the lunch lightly, in the hope you can make up these shortages at dinner. This meal in the middle of the day should take care of a third of the day's food requirements and as such is not a matter to be considered lightly. Yes, it's a challenge, homemak- erst You may bake the best cake in miles around or turn out a roast that's proud to behold, or a dessert that's ,purely ambrosial, but it you don't put uP a lunch that your child or defense worker husband eats with gusto, you won't get my vote for excellence. Now, let's get to work! Sandwiches are a standby, but let's make them something more than peanut-butter and Jelly or cheese between a couple slices of bread. Sandwich Ideas. Sliced or chopped hard.cooked eggs, combined with pickte and moistened with salad dressing. Stieed tongue or ham with mus- tard or horseradish. Liverwurst, mashed and seasoned with catsup. Chopped ham, chopped hard- cooked eggs, minced green pepper, cooked salad dressing. Cream cheese, grated yellow cheese, chopped pimiento, chopped green olives, salad dressing to moisten. Ground corned beef, chopped pickle, and chopped ripe olives blended with mayonnaise. Peanut butter and honey or cream Cheese and honey. M~at 10~af/!ettfiee,' rye bread. Have a hot dish, too. This makes for top-notch efficiency besides giv- ing the luncheon a hearty and sub. stantial angle that your children, or defense-plant husband will welcome. ~Iow to do? Simply use a thermos bottle for soup or a hot drink or unwaxed paper cups and containers for hot foods. Packing the kind of lunch your family can work on should be your aim--an aim, which is fast gaining prominence because hours lost out of the plant or by children from school by illness, mean sabotage on the nutrition front.

They didn't like his attitude, claimed he wasn't adequately equipped. But no one had yet sum- moned up enough courage to come ~ut openly and declare that Seth had failed at his job, and demand a change. Sheriff Crystal hated automo- biles. They reminded him of the passing of the old West. He was old, this Sheriff Crystal, a member of the old school of bandit-hunters, somewhat of a sentimentalist, who dreamed of the past and Hoed in it a great deal, too. There were rumors that it was time he was retired on a pension. He didn't want to be retired, or he 'didn't need to be. But now the worst had happened. rhe bank at Salt Flats had been robbed, the cashier shot and the bandits escaped in a high.powered car. And Seth--ridiculous as it seemed--had set out to catch them, an hour later, astride his bay mare. Even in the face of such a grave situation there had been those who laughed, for it seemed such an ab- surd thing to do. Fifteen miles north of Salt Flats Seth drew in his sweating mount at Toward three o'clock Seth rode up the northern slope of the sink and came onto the road that spilled down out of ,the hills and stretched away in the distance to Morton.

He was old, this Sheriff Crystal, a member of the old school of bandit-hlmters, somewhat of a senti- mentalist, who dreamed of the past and lived in it a great deal, toe. a point where the road swerved sharply to the left, skirting a rising bluff that eventually merged into the hills above the desert. Directly ahead of him lay Drybed Sink, sun- scorched and shimmering beneath '~the noonday sun. During the winter months the fleer of Drybed Sink was cov- ered oecasdonally with water, rendering travel by horses or maehlne sn Impossibil/ty be- cause of the soft, cozy mud. BUt during the other~ nine months the bottom became baked herd by the sun, present- ins a fiat, smooth surface of s solMlty strong en~h to with- stand the pressure of n dozen traeim st once. The eink served as a crosscut at these times for travelers wishing to reach the town Of Morton, where the rail- road psissed thro~q~,h. Seth urged his mare" down onto he sink floor and settled into the saddle for the ten-mile ride beneath the broiling July sun. As he ad- vanced a mirage, representing a cooling expanse of lake water, re- ceded before him not 100 yards dis- tant. The mirage had never failed to fascinate Seth. And today, de- spite the gravity of his thoughts, he watched it with as much interest as ~ver. Nothing had seemed more real not even Lake Michigan, el~ which he had once gazed from a high promontory, years ego. Natives of the vicinity liked to bring tourists out to Drybed Sink just to hear their exclamations of incredulity. Many of them re~used to believe the lake was not genuine r.Until they had been taken down into tl~ sink and shown. Ordi~rily Seth mlg~t have re. fleeted on these ammdng Jnci* dents, but today he was thinking of something more tmImrlant. He was wondering wltat he'd say when those in charge down at the county seat accused him of being Incompetm~t ~d con- demned him for not bringing back the bandits. They'd say he didn~ have a chance, be- cause being without an aurorae. bile he wasn't on an equal'toot- lng with the bandits, and what would his answer be? Seth didn't know why he kept on le trail. Possibly he had hopes of picking up a clue in Morton that might lead to something. But at best the outlaws would reach the railroad town shortly after noon, and pass through it. It was maddening, in a waY, to thin~ of the speed with which they could travel madden- ing, and yet even now Seth refused to bow to the encroachment of a new West and the passin~ of the old. Somehow -- but here -- automobiles and such had no place. It was man's country, and whether or not a man survived in it shouldn't de- pend on man.made machines. It ~d~'t .eem rlgh~ what he'd say when he reached the town, knowing full well that he'd ap- pear a little ridi.culous as he ex- plained his mission and told of how the bank robbers had escaped. The mare was close to exhaus- tion, but she moved unhesitatingly ahead when Seth picked up the reins. They plodded on for 100 yards or more, then Seth abruptly sat erect on his saddle and pulled in. Behind him unmistakably, he heard the roar of a motor. It was coming down the road, out of the hills. Without knowing why, yet een- sclous of a vague hope, Seth urged the mare behind a clump of mesquite, and waited. Pres- ently a car emerged into the fist country and roared toward him. Seth's heart thumped. The ear contained three men, and its de. scription fitted nicely with the one given him of the hold-up machine. Seth reached down to his hip and drew forth the long-barreled" anti- quoted six-shooter that had been his boon companion for nearly half a century. Holding the perfectly bal- anced weapon in his right hand, he picked up the reins with the left and sat crouched a little forward in his saddle. The car came on, its speed re- ducing as it struck the loose sand of the desert country. Seth could see its occupants' faces quite plain- ly. Unconsciously he chuckled at their expressions of annoyance at having their speed impeded. Seth waited until the car had ap- proached within twenty-five feet of the mesquite clump, then drove his spurs and let out a yip. The mare lunged forward, directly in the t~ath of the oncoming vehicle. The reaction of the driver was natural Instinctively he swerved to avoid a collision, automatically ap- ~lying the brakes. The machir~e's front wheels struck the Ipose sand, and lurched, throwing the occupants of the car against the windshield. Seth quieted the mare with a word and a slight tug on the reins. He sat very straight and still in hls saddle, watching the men in the car gravely, the old-fashioned six.shoot. er held ~h a level with his hip. From the car's front seat came n steady flow of cursing and groans. Presently one of the men disentangled himself, sat up, saw Seth sitting there and without thinkin~ reached in- side his coat toward a shoulder holster. The six-shooter in Seth's hand roared and leaped. The bandit shrieked and looked down at his shattered wrist in blank dismay. "An' now," said Seth gently, "you three coyotes climb down cutter that ottermobeel and start walking. It's only three miles to Morton, an' the exercise will do you good. I ain't got no use for ottermobeeis anyhow." An hour later Seth had lodged his three prisoners in the jail at Morton and w~s seated in the cool of the evening on the veranda of the town's rooming house. A group of citizens was crowding about, clamoring for details of the arrest, expressing amazement at the rapidity with which the sheriff had captured the perpetrators of the worst hold-up and robbery in the county's history. But Seth answered only vaguely. He was thinking of tomorrow when he would ride astride a horse into Salt Flats with his prisoners; he was thinking of the expressions of incredulity that would most certain- ~j~ appear on the ~faces of the county authorities, and of their embarrass- meat at ,thus having their plans to pension him off frustrated. Once he chuckled. No need, he thought, to mention the mirage. Let 'era guess how he did It. They were too stupid to realize that the bandits were city ~nen and hence, upon seeing the mirage that had fooled even Westerners, had natu. rally believed it real and taken the winter road through the h/Ha, that was five miles longer. Wiesbaden, Once Famous Spa, Attacked by RAF Bombing of Wiesbaden by the RAY focuses attention on one of Ger- many's most famous spas. Manu- facture of surgical instruments and the production of cement are im- portsnt industries in normal ~imes, but the city is best known for its medicinal baths. During the season, from Ap/il to October, thousands of visitors sought relie~ from various a!iments. This influx doubled the city s normal pop- ulation of 100,000. The range of ills included gout, rheumatism, and neuralgia. Shrinkage of oversize waistlines was a major objective, according to a bulletin from the National Geographic society. Baths with all the trimm~gs were readily available--sand, mud, hot air, electrleity, and steam--or the health seeker could revel in the sire. plieity of an old-fashioned tub ira. mersion. Mineral mists were pro- vided for those who wanted to "bathe" their lungs. Lounging rooms were a characteristic feature of the bath houses. Although Wiesbaden throve on the ills of the flesh, it was also a center for sports lo~ers. Easy access to the forests and vineyards of the Rhine valley invited hikers ~nd auto. mobile tourists. The number of players on lts golf courses and ten. n~ courts was evidence of the cites appeal to the able.bodied, of workers, according to Faber Bir- ren, induztrial color consultant Not only should there be adequate light of satisfactory spectral quality, but the wails, m~chines and other equip- ment in industrial plants should be decorated in co!ors so as to bring about maximum eye ease and visual efficiency, he says Too little attention ha~ been given in many plants to the conservation of human eyesight, he continues, adding that insufficient lighting, glare and poor color contrasts of ~quipment and materials weaken and' strain the eyes, frequently caus- ing avoidable fatigue. Instead of the customary red to indicate hazards, as on a guard or the lever of a machine, Mr. Birren says that yellow, orange and yellow- green would be more effective be- cause they have greater visibility than red. He recommends yellow- ish in preference to bluish light for ~eneral illumination, and the use of ight tones for walls and back- grounds for greatest eye ease of workers. To provide visual relaxa- tion, end walls of a factory, he says, should be greenish or bluish in tone rather than yellow or red, pointing out that the blue side of the spec- truln is visually more retiring than the red side. Investigations Disclose Sound Plays Odd Tricks What Paul Revere's yell did in rousing patriots to action is now done by a variety of mechanized devices. To get the public's ear in alr raid drills, experts have had to deal with the behavior of sound. Some materials allow sound to l~ass free;y. Others diminish it by absorption. Sound may be thrown o~ its ori~inal course, thereby cre- a~ing st;once pockets, Extent of the area covered by a sound signs! and the degree of its audibility are ruled by the location and height of the s~urce, buildngs and other obstruc. tions, the terrain, wind, humidity, and temperature. These factors are never quite the same from one area to another. Moreover, at a s~ecific location they change from day to day. Be- cause of this variability the distance any warning device can be heard is difficult to guarantee. Adverse con. ditions have cut the audibility of a signal heard eight miles to a quar- ter-mile. To make a noise that can be heard distinctly where it ~s meant to be h~ard is the purpose of all sound signals. Sounds ranging from about two t~nes below middle C and an octave above middle C seem to be heard more effectively inside build. ings than tones of higher pitch. Expensive Process Steel can be made solely from pig iron and without the us~ of scrap but, except in the Bessemer con- verter, the process is expensive and time-consuming. In the open hearth and electric furnace processes much t:me is lost if only pig iron is charged h~cause the entire charge ~ust be refined through the removal of carbon, silicon, phosphorus, sul- phur, etc. If scrap represents a large portion of the charge, com- plete refining of the entire charge is unnecessary since the scrap h~/ving already been refined in previous melting processes does not contain the impurities present in pig iron. In the Bessemer converter, which produces Bessemer'steel, the en, tire charge is molten pigiron, onIy small quantities of scrap being add. ~toward the end of the process or the ladle when the molten steel is poured into ingot molds. A lime iti~g factor to the use of Bessemer converters and also to the use of 100 per cent pig iron charge in the open hearth and electric furnaces is the supply of iron which is not plentiful. Keeps Harbors Open The Gulf of Mexico, is a warm and deep blue current which flows through the Florida strait i~a and t the coast of the United States until it reaches the s~uthar~ end of New. found/and, where it merges with the greater warm, w~ter drift that moves across/the Atlantic ocean to the western coast of Europe, It is believed to result from the vertical circulation of the ocean water% .as effected by the'rotation of the ea~, Its influence on the climate of Eu- rope exists, but has been overrated. One of its chief assets is the fac'[ that it keeps certain European har- bors free from ice in winter.
