ficials charged him with one trial on
a technicality which threatened
momentarily to draw a protest from
Avery Brundage, president of the
American Olympic committee.
Owens heightened his followers'
fears when he stepped over the take-
off on his next attempt and was
charged with a foul, putting himself
on the spot. Not taking any chances,
Jesse hopped 24 feet 5 1/5 inches on
his last trial, thus passing the quali-
fying test.
In the afternoon the brown Buck-
eye bullet broke the Olympic mark by
easy stages, starting off at 25 feet 4
47/64 inches, topping off the semi-
finals with 25 feet 9 '27/32 inches, and
then doing 25 feet 4 1/8 inches before
entering the finals.
Lutz Long, Germany's ace jump-
er, thrilled the 'crowd by equalling
Owen's best jump and turning to
salute Hitler, but Jesse's response
closed the .debate.
After fouling on his first trial in
the finals, Owens jumped 26 feet
39/64 inch, finally 26 feet 5 21/64
inches while the stadium echoed with
a roar that could be heard all over
the-Olympic plant. The jump, al-
though short of Owen's world record
of 26 feet 8 inches, pushed into
discard the former Olympic stand-
ard of 25 feet 4 11/64 inches.
Other Jumpers Tie Mark
Long was the first to congratulate
Jesse and the two walked arm in arm
in front ofP Chancellor Hitler's box.
All told the three broad jump med-
alists bettered the former Olympic
record while the next two equalled it,
a rare incident in such competition.
Woodruff brought to a climax an
amazing rise from the ranks of the
unknowns scarcely two months ago
by capturing the none-too-well run'
800-meter final. Ted Meredith, who
last won this event for America in
1912, looked on as the long-striding
Negro freshman from the University,
of Pittsburgh bucked and jumped his'
way out of a series of jams, nailed1
hi dusky rival, Phil Edwards of Can-
ada, at the head of the stretch and
swept on to victory over Mario Lanzi
of Italy.
Woodruff's time of 1:52.9 was slow-
er than his clocking in the semi-
final and the slowest winning time
since 1920, but there was no question
that the American Negro was the,
best man in the race.
Woodruff's triumph marked the
fourth contributed by Negroes to
America's total of five championships
and likewise ended Great Britain's
post-war winning streak in this event.
Brian Maccabe, lone British finalist,
ran eighth.
Hardin Has Difficulties
The Negro monopoly on the medals
was broken by Hardin, who came
through as was expected but not
without a stretch struggle in which
the first four were separated by
scarcely five meters.
The Mississippian, who was voted
the most handsome man on the;
American team, found the gusty
arena unsuitable for his best per-
formance and was timed in 52.4 sec-

onds, considerably slower than his
Olympic and world marks of 52 and
50.6 seconds, but he proved his class
under pressure.
A stretch drive over the last 40
yards decided the issue after Johnny
Loaring of Canada, Miguel White of
the Philippines and Joe Patterson of
Oklahoma City pressed Hardin over
the last hurdle.
Patterson was virtually lever with
his teammate at that point but falt-
ered and was passed by Loaring and
White who finished two and three
meters respectively behind the win-
Tolan's Mark Broken
The Olympic 200-meter mark of
21.2 seconds set by Eddie Tolan of
Michigan in 1932 was equalled three
times besides being beaten twice by
Owens, first in the trials and then in
the quarter-finals. Packard tied it
in the morning but ran third in the
afternoon, trailing Canada's Lee Orr,
who matched the mark, and also Paul
Haenni of Switzerland in a blanket
finish, all three being separated by
only one-tenth of a second. Robin-
son equalled the record in the last
quarter-final heat, beating the Dutch
star, Martin Osendarp.
Favorites came through in both
women's events. Miss Stephens, who
outclassed all rivals throughout the
100-meter competition, was a trifle
slow off the marks but gained her
stride and pulled out quickly to beat
Miss Walsh by two meters, Kaethe
Krauss of Germany by four, with

Guest Director's Character
Of 'Paycock' Leads Him
To Speculation
(Continued from Page 1)
'chassis" meaning, chaos, and Mr.
Kane is trying to get the effect of
chaos in the production.
"Though Ireland's quiet now;
they've learned to get their revolu-
tions over early," Mr. Kane mused.
The action takes place after the set-
tling of the Irish Free State, when
the situation was exactly as it is in
Spain today. The "Die Hards" are
similar to the Fascists," he went on.
The Lydia Mendelssohn patrons
may find a bit of historical evidence
scribbled in chalk across the "Pay-
cock's" door. The heavy scrawling
"Up the Republic," and "Up De
Valera," De Valera having been a
Republican at that time which was
in 1922.
"In this play I am trying to do
everything for 'Juno,' Mr. Kane said.
$I feel that O'Casey has drown one of
his greatest characters in 'Juno.' "
"We're all rapscallions except for!
her," he continued. "She is one of!
the great characters of literature.
I'm sure she will go down in literary
history, and Miss Claribel Baird who
is playing that part here is doing a
very fine job of it."
-"Juno and the Paycock" is the first
effort to get away from the peasant1
play for which the Irish are famous.
It -describes the slum life in Dublin
which was about the worst in the
world and which has been cleaned up
under the new government. The
'Paycock's' home represents a form-
er Georgian house which was built
when Ireland was prosperous. The
Irish theatre is trying to get a new
type of play today. In Dublin, Sean
O'Casey's "Silver Tassle," was refused1
because it dealt with war.+
"You can see the influence of Ib-
sen in most all of the Irish plays,"
Mr. Kane said. "In the character of
the 'Paycock,' I am reminded of Ib-
sen's Hjalmar in 'The Wild Duck,'
although I don't mind being a lazy
man in the play," he added laughing-
ly," for I'm a bit of a lazy man my-
self--but I haven't got a sharp-
tongued wife like 'Juno.' Thank God!"
Mr. Kane said that he liked thel
lovable, irresponsible part of the
"Paycock" for the same reason that
he is so attached to the role that John
Galsworthy wrote especially for him.
He explained in the words of Chris-
topher Wellwyn to his daughter Ann:j
"I can't help it. It's stronger than
me in another way."
However, Mr. Kane maintains that
Mr. O'Casey's play is quite different
than "The Pigeon" in that it is all
crash and noise. He feels confident;

too, that "Juno" would have been a
lady and the "Paycock" a gentleman
in a different environment.
Captain Boyle's rather malaprop-
ris-character who is so prone to
"sturt like a Paycock," according to
"Juno," might be discerned in his re-
tort to Bentham, the English school
master, who has been discussing
theosophy and speaks about the
yokl's to which the "Paycock" re-
plies, having been to America oncet
in his lifetime:
"Oh yes, Mr. Bentham. I've seen
hundreds of them in the streets of!
San Francisco!"
Mr. Kane believes that Mr. O'Casey1
must have had in mind the work of
the little group of Theosophers in

"The water will be aerated, the

water will be recarbonated, to bring
it back to life, clean, pure, and spar-

on hand to regulate the 'ph' value,
or stability, of the softened water.
"It will take from a month to two
months to get the softener regulated
as desired. Our aim is to remove
about 80 per cent of the hardness.
A perfectly soft water wouldn't be
satisfactory for certain purposes. For
example, it would be too flat to drink.
Also, a small percentage of hardness
is nececsary to protect the plates of
boilers. All heating equipment would
dissolve slowly in perfectly soft water.
From an economic standpoint it
would. be undesirable to soften the
water below the recognized standard
that we hope to attain.
"All towns which pump their water
from wells have a 'hard water' prob-
lem. It is estimated that 15 per cent
of the urban population of the United
States uses water that is not from a
surface water supply, either a lake
or a river, or an impounded reservoir.
"Pumping of artesian water makes
it 'hard,' because the increased ve-
locity increases its absorption and
power to dissolve minerals. Though
our water is pumped from three wells
(the Steere farm, Montgomery Ave-
nue, and the Reservoir) it is our hope
that soon it will be exactly the same
hardness as the ideal water of De-

New Photoflood Bulb Out
Here is some good news for you.
General Electric has announced a new
Mazda Photoflood. The new bulb
has twice the output of the 25 cent
bulb that you are familiar with, and
it is mounted in a standard base. It
will burn for six hours, and lists at
50 cents.
This should be a great help to those
who have been using two bulbs in one
reflector, because the larger bulb will
make for more efficient use of the re-
flector, and for the same price you
can secure three times as many hours
of light.
Not Useful In Enlarger
I can hear certain ever-hopeful
people saying "Goody, goody, now I
can make my enlarger work faster,"
but they are very apt to find that this
is not such a good policy. The new
bulb will of course be much bigger
and if it will fit into your enlarger
at all, it will be too close to the film.
This, coupled with the pleasant
thought that twice as much light is
bound to mean more heat, will mean
that the overheating you are bound
to run into will not be offset by any
increase in speed that you might ob-
If, however, you are contemplat-
ing the building of an enlarger and
expect to use a flood bilb for illum-
ination, then you might find this
bulb an advantage. Remember when
you draw up the plans that you must
make provision for the larger bulb,
and the ventilation will have to be
Low-Power Bulbs Best
But while on the 'subject of en-
largers ,the use of high-power il-
lumination is passing out of style.
There are machines on the market
that turn out beautiful work in which
the 5x7 inch size only uses 75 to 100
watts, and most good miniature en-
largers work with less than 75 watts.
But it requires careful engineering
to design a machine that will work
well with so little power, so most of
the home built machines are still
erected around a flood bulb. If how-
ever, you expect to build one for
miniature work only, then do youi'
best to avoid the use of a flood bulb,
as high-power illumination is very
unsatisfactory with the smaller films.
