It has opened a new field of research which may apply to the human heart. By examining more than 50 hearts, it was found that all contained one and frequently two bones varying from two to seven centimeters in length. It was also dis-j covered that the bone formation was similar to that of ordinary bone with layers, cells, and a matrix. “We conclude that this formation in cattle is nature's method of giving strength to the walls of sections of the heaTt and to its valve,” said Dr. Harrison. “This organ was undoubtedly equipped to take care cf thc simple demands made upon it centuries ago when the bovine was content to graze quietly on the range. But when the cow began to over-exert the heart by running and frequently stampeding, nature had to adjust the blood pump.” Despite occasional mention of the phenomenon by research workers, no definite material on the function of the heart-bones has been available. The bureau of animal husbandry and the Carnegie institution at Washington were among the sources queried. olumbus Crew [waits Return Germany AN FRANCISCO.

Senate Revives House-Approved Anti-Lynch Bill Radio Division Plans New School Program A new series of dramatized fairy tales has been started by the university radio division in response to a request made by the Mutual-Don Lee broadcasting system for weekly programs to be broadcast for children of primary grades of west coast schools. The SC series is but one of three which the Don Lee system requested to be handled by various colleges. Pasadena junior college and San Diego State college are also presenting a series. The broadcasts are heard by the children in various schoolrooms where listening periods are a regular part of the school curriculum. “It is an excellent opportunity for entering and returning students who have a desire to go on the radio, to do so,” believes Dick Huddleston, director of radio. “We would welcome aspirants for parts in these broadcasts,” he continued, mentioning that writers and typists could be used. The scripts now used are being prepared by Seymour Andrews and Nancy Thompson, members of the radio staff and the honorary radio fraternity, Gamma Beta Alpha. Three bulletins will be published by the county schools of California in conjunction with the present series of programs. Appearing at six-week intervals, the bulletins will contain synopses of the stories to be presented and will also Contain suggested methods on the method WASHINGTON.

Its primary objective is the practical training of architectural students in the evolving of home plans for specific sites, families, or clients. Santa Anita village, a new residential community being developed Britain Fears New Irish Crisis Executions Stir Republican Army; . Nazi Aid Charged LONDON, Feb. 7—(U.P.) — The British government tonight prepared for a new crisis in Anglo-Irish relations and intensified German efforts to bring about an Irish uprising after the execution at Winton Green prison in Birmingham of two young terrorists of the outlawed Irish Republican army. With Ireland stirred to high wrath, the Irish Republican army I appeared to have gained a popular issue with which to push its campaign for forcible union of independent Eire and northern Ireland which is a part of the United Kingdom. NAZIS CHARGED The British government has accused Germany of sending the IRA financial aid by way of the United States and it is feared now that with Barnes and Richards being given the roles of “martyrs” the Nazis will seize upon the opportunity to increase the Irish-British diffi-I culties. The British government also is concerned with the possibility that the executions will arouse Irish Americans to attack Britain and the British cause among the people of the United States. MINISTER JEOPARDIZED Eamon de Valera, the New York-I bom prime minister of Eire, is faced with one of tha most dangerous situations of his turbulent career as direct consequence of the executions. By ironic circumstances De Valera, who was one of the leaders of the 1916 Easter rebellion and a thorn in Britain’s flesh throughout the World war. now represents Britain’s best hope of avoiding serious trouble with the Irish. Although he still maintains an uncompromising demand for an end of the Eire-Ulster partition, De Valera has militantly opposed the IRA extremists’ demand that Eire take advantage of Britain’s preoccupation with the war to seize the six northern counties by force. BOMBERS EXECUTED Barnes and Richards were executed for planting a bomb in a bicycle basket on the main street of ; Coventry last August 25 and killing five persons and wounding about 50 others. The Coventry bombing was | the worst of a series of outrages attributed to the IRA extending back to January of 1939. There were no new outrages during today, but Britain’s wartime tension noticeably was heightened. Public officials and government buildings were under strong guard, special watches were placed over j the homes of judges who presided at the trials of IRA men. and Lon-j don was under a virtual state of ! siege with 10.000 crack agents of I Scotland Yard’s criminal investigation department supplementing ordinary uniformed and plain clothes policemen.

Adamantios Th. Polyzoides ... proposes peace plan SC Professor Suggests Peace Plan for 1940 Polyzoides Proposes League of Neutrals To Exchange Views A League of Neutrals to make possible peace in 1940 is suggested by Adamantios Th. Polyzoides, SC lecturer and columnist, writing in i the current issue of the World Affairs Interpreter, quarterly magazine devoted to international rela-j tions. “The present situation calls for a plan and a design for international living. And the first step in this connection should be the calling of a world conference of neutrals, preferably in Washington, in order to exchange views and formulate plans for a new settlement of the affairs of the world, since the peace of 1919 has definitely failed to accomplish the ends for which it was called,” he said. COLLECTIVE POWER GREAT “Unfortunately the neutrals have never looked upon themselves as a great collectivity, and therefore they never figured out the prospects of their combined power. Had they done so, they might possibly discover that they have the means and the way either to stop the European war or to prevent it from spreading into their own domains. “The prospects of cooperation among the neutrals, with the purpose of restoring peace in Europe, may at first seem too ambitious and even naive. However, it is against the kind of setting now existing in Europe that a League of Neutrals should be projected.” NEUTRALS HAVE STRENGTH The 40 neutrals of the world occupy a far larger area than either the British or the French empire or the combination of the Soviet Union and the German Reich, he pointed out. They can muster between 400,-000.000 and 450.000.000 human beings. Geographically they are most strategically located, and outrank both belligerent groups in the matter of resources and natural wealth. “The net result is the impressive figure of 450.000.000 people committed to, but unfortunately not united in, the promotion of an effective policy of neutrality in the present conflict,” Mr. Polyzoides said. Dr. Rufus B. von KleinSmid . . . prepares assembly speech By Senate Proposed Reductions Of Air Appropriation Defeated by Coalition WASHINGTON, Feb. 7 — (U.P.) — The congressional economy bloc, which lists Vice-President John N. Garner among its leaders, suffered a $1,000,000 set-back today as the senate brought the $1,139,-693.528 independent offices bill to the brink of passage. A non-partisan coalition of western and southern members engineered the reversal of the economy forces by defeating, 37 to 34. an appropriation committee amendment reducing the fund for maintenance and operation of air navigation facilities of the civil aeronautics authority from $12,000,000 to $11,000,000. MEASURE DEFEATED The committee was defeated a second time a few moment later when the senate voted 41 to 11 against an amendment which would have eliminated a house restriction against purchase of oleomargerine ^or other butter substitutes by the veterans administration except for cocking purposes. The economy issue was not a part of the oleomargerine fight, however, as no direct appropriation was involved. Senate leaders expect the house-approved bill to pass tomorrow. It then will be sent back to the house for adjustment of differences, chief of which is a $39,000,000 increase in the appropriation for the maritime commission. FIGHT ANTICIPATED Another senate decision which may provoke a hot fight in confer- j ence is an appropriation of $710,- j 000 for the national resources board, | one of President Roosevelt’s pet | agencies. The house killed this camPus sites-agency, the office of government re- 'ocations production crew mem-ports and the council of personnel bers Raveled approximately 4650 administration, all under the white miles and use<* about 340 gallons of house, on the ground that they had gasoline in the process. A trip to Mile of Film Used To Shoot Troy Newsreel Forty-Three Topics Presented by Staff In Four Productions More than a mile of motion picture film was ground through the cameras of SC in the production of the Trojan Newsreel during the first semester of the 1939-40 year, according to figures released yesterday by Don Duke, student producer. Of the 5463 feet of film shot for the four issues of the movie, some 3200 feet were used in the final productions, each of which averaged 29 minutes in length, it was estimated. Statisticians also figured that if the amount of light required'for the entire semester’s shooting were burned in one hour, it would have required 648.750 watts of power. There were 273 locations used for shooting, which included 8? off-Going to and from ir bers traveled no legal status.

Legislators Open Way For War Aid WASHINGTON, Feb. 7 — The senate foreign relations committee cleared the decks for financial aid to war-invaded Finland and China today while the house defeated two proposals aimed at breaking off diplomatic relations with Russia. The committee approved, 12 to 6, a bill increasing the export-import bank's capital by $100,000,000 of which $20,000,000 could be loaned on a non-military basis to China and $20,000,000 to Finland although names of both nations are omitted. The proposed Chinese loan came as a surprise and as interpreted in some quarters as a new blow at Japan in protest against her treatment of Americans in China. Finland already has borrowed $10,000,000. The committee rejected. 15 to 3. a motion to grant the little Baltic republic a direct loan of $30,000,000 which could have been used for purchases of munitions and armaments as well as non-military supplies. As approved the bill stipulates that all loans made must be for non-mUitary purposes.
