Burton n, t, winning out in the race, with 16 signers as against 15 lawyers. An- other group won out with the same close margin of one, when as the record shows, farmers were repre- sented by only eight of their num- ber, while the merchants listed nine business men. Strangely enough, the military service had only two soldier-signers. The list ended with one college pres- ident, printer, brewer and s manu- facturer. The oldest living mem- ber was George Wythe, a lawyer, born in Elizabeth City, Va., who died in 1806. He was then 80 years old. Scientists Discover New Micro-Organism Facts New facts about the diphtheria bacillus have been discovered by Dr. Harry E. Morton, University of tennsylvania, and Dr. Thomas F. Anderson, research laboratories of the Radio Corporation of America. The new and powerful electron mi- croscope, which uses particles of electricity instead of light and mag- netic fields instead of lenses to let scientists see objects one-fiftieth the size of anything heretofore visible, enabled Doctors Morton and Ander- son to record the location of chem- ical reactions within the diphtheria bacillus. They discovered in elec- tron microscope studies reported to the Society of American Bacteriolo- gists that crystals of tellurin - metal are formed from tellurite salts within the diphtheria bacillus. The fact that the diphtheria bacillus and other micro-organisms could reduce tellurite salts to black tellurium metal has been known- since 1900, but in the case of the diphtheria bacillus, it was ex-. plained, it was not known where the formation of the metal occurred. Crystals of tellurium are not only contained within many of the diph- theria cells, the electron microscope pictures showed, but in some cases the crystals perforate the cells and extend into the surrounding space. Food for $1.87 Year British nutrition problems appear solved with the discovery by an M.I.T. scientist of a wonder cereal which can supply all the vitamins - necessary to health for $1.87 a year per person. Disclosure of the pro-cooked cereal was made by Dr. Robert S. Harris. The United States gov- ernment has been given the formula composed of the simplest of foods and it already has been sent to Britain. Dr. Harris pointed out that when the preparation was used daily to supplement the present diet, it would bring 94 per cent of Ameri- can diets up to highest nutritional levels and definitely improve the other six. Harris, who developed a new type of pemmican for the U. S. Antarctic expedition last year, said the new foods v:ere a natural out- growth of the pemmican work. Art Develanment Art development in America is intimately associated with Philadel- phia since that city was the mecca of the first artists to arrive in the New World. Charles Henry Hart, Philadelphia art authority, and oth- ers claimed Gustavus Hesselins (1682-1755) was the earliest painter in America. Born in Sweden the same year Philadelphia was found- ed, Hesselius arrived in Christina (Wilmington, Del.) in May, 1711, and came to Philadelphia the same month. In 1717 he went to Mary- land, remaining until 1723, his paint- ings indluding a mural for church of St. Barnabas in Queen Anne parish. He returned to Philadelphia in 1735 and resided here until his death. He lived with his wife, Lydia, in a house on Market street near Fourth. Hesselius is also known as the first organ builder in America. lowing the business session, Mrs. Cook conducted the study on "Investing Our Heritage in Interdenominational Ccoperative Work." She read a list of about 20 groups now in this class of work. Mas,. Cook, Mrs. Callahan. Mrs. Weixnert and Mrs. Howard gave articles showing the work of four different groups. Mrs. Utz read a paper discussing the different projects in which our organization is interested. Following adjournment the com- mittee served refreshments of wafers and iced tea. ---Reporter. -O-O Typing paper, 50 cents per ream at the Star office. 86-tL " it (First published in the Western Star on Friday, August 29, 1941.)

Car Exonerated, Driver, Blamed in Most Mishaps) The driver who blames his car when he has an automobile acci- dent is first cousin to the poor workman who always blames his tools, if statistics revealed in the latest annual highway safety booklet issued by The Travelers Insurance Company are any Indi- cation. Most accidents, it Is shown, are caused by faulty drvers rather than faulty cars. The iusanca company's eta- ttstician after analyzing 1940's accident records, found that 91.3 er cent of all automobiles in- volved in fatal crashes and 95.1 per cent of those in non-fatal acident were in good mechani- cal condition. Only 810 of the 36,870 cars in fatal accidents were found to have imperfect brakes and 410 of the ill-fated vehip.les had one or both hehdlights out. Punctures and blowouts accounted for but 440 of the fatal crashes, The new booklet, eleventh in a series issued annually, stresses the importance of keeping the car in the best possible condRion but at the same time points out that the driver should pay as much attention to his own condi- tion as he does to that of his car. "In explaini his ace/dent t his friends," the 'booklet asserts, "the typical driver usually has a glib excuse. ,His brakea stuck, something went haywire witl his steering mechani, a tire blew, or the glaring headlights of an oncoming car blinded him, But his account doesn't jibe with, that of the investigating officer. That worthy usually finds the driver's car in apparently good, condition and writes into his re-' port some mental fault on the part of the driver rather than . some mechanical fault on the part of the automobile as the principal cause of the accident."
