Charges that 476 men contracted silicosis while digging this tunnel
at Gawley Bridge, W. Va., and later died were being investigated by a
House labor subcommittee. Gleaming portions of the tunnel are almost
pure silica rock. Powdered particles in it, when breathed, cause silicosis,
a lung disease.

Probe Bullet Hole
In Airplane Crash
MEMPHIS, Tenn., Jan. 21. - (P) -
A theory that a pistol was fired
aboard the giant airliner "Southern-
er" before it plunged 17 persons to
death in an Arkansas swamp held the
attention of investigators today.
Discovery in the wreckage of an
automatic pistol and a piece of metal
with a hole through it about the size
of a bullet served only to deepen the
mystery of what happened aboard the
Fresh cause for speculation was a
statement of an American Airlines
official, Ed Hurlburt, that he believed
the weapon belonged to a passenger.

at Washington that all but the "hu-

metal was made by a bullet, it was

STUDYING by the flickering light
of the fire, Abraham Lincoln
achieved a goal that any boy might
envy ... but firelight was not respon-
sible for his success. Lincoln absorbed
knowledge despite this handicap, not
because of it. We can only guess how
thankful he would have been for the

definite relationship between correct

it was found that there were three
times as many failures in the poorly
lighted classroom as in the well-light-
ed room!
Correct lighting is equally impor-
tant in the home. You can be assured
of proper light to protect vision if you
use the lamp shown here for reading
or writing. The inner glass reflector
softens light and prevents glare. The
wide shade spreads the light over your
work, and the wide opening at the top
throws light to the ceil-
