Landon Is On Way
to Join Family
-(IP)-Vacation bound, Gov. Alf
M. Landon sped westward across
Kansas' sun-baked plains tonight
to Join his family at Estes Park,
Colo., for a brief respite before
starting his first presidential
campaign tour into the East.
The Republican nominee, wear-
ing a dark gray suit, sport shoes
and straw hat, chatted with Sen.
Arthur Capper of Kansas and his
friend, Clyde Miller, Topeka in-
surance man, on the station plat-
form before entraining at 7 p.m.
Governor Landon posed smil-
ingly for pictures and shook
hands with many who surged for-
ward to see hima.

Legionnaires Campaign
For New Leaders
LANSING, Aug. 11.-(P)-
Early campaigns of those seeking
election as state commander of
the American Legion got under
way today.
.David V. Addy, of Detroit, is
not expected to seek reelection
to the post he now holds. Uper
Peninsula legionnaires further
the candidacy of Guy M. Knox, of
Escanaba, who served as vice-
cmmander in 1926.
Others whose friends were
pushing them for election at the
state convention here Aug. 15, 16,
17 and 18 were Carl H. Smith of
Bay City; Arthur E. Clarke, of
South Haven, present vice-com-
madider; Arthur E. Hagen, of
Owosso, and Oliver E. Aldrich, of
Elections will be held Aug. 18,
the last business of the conven-
tion. Registration of legionnaires
will start Saturday morning.
Bugle and drum corps contests, a
parade Monday, and introduc-
tion of political leaders will be
highlights of the convention.
Substitute Gas
Used In War Games
SAUGATUCK, Aug. 11--(P)-
Citizens, soldiers from Michigan
and Wisconsin, National Guards-
men attached to the Thirty-See-
ond Division, put in some inten-
sive drills on the use of gas masks
Thursday they move into the
"front line" in West Michigan's
war games, andl their officers
have received word they will be
subjected to repeated "gas" at-
tacks by planes of the GHQ air
The soldier a bit laggard with
his mask routine need have no
worry about his health, however.
The planes will spray a harmless
mixture of glycerine, corn syrup
and anise.
This mixture, described as a
close approximation of mustard
gas without its deadly qualities,
was developed under direction
of Liput-Col. Benjamin A. Brack-

Sullivan's Personality
The traditional pirate colors of red,
blue and black will be used in the
first scene in contrast to the cool color
scheme of General Stanley's home.
The maidens will wear the cool colors
when they break in upon the pirates
while the warmth of the pirates rich
colors will break in upon the maidens
in the next scene, thus forming a
unit of color.
Of the successful team of Gilbert
and Sullivan, Mr. Wyckoff feels that
Sullivan was the greater personality
in contributing to music more than
Gilbert contributed to dramatic lit-
erature with his farcical talent.
Gilbert and 'Sullivan were rather a
Ben Hecht-Charles MacArthur team
of their day, though Mr. Wyckoff feels
that Hecht and MacArthur bear more
of an affection for ane another than
did the easy-going, popular Sullivan
and the truculent, caustic Gilbert.
Sullivan was interested in a career
of serious choral and orchestral works
while Gilbert thought little of music
for its own sake and desired most to
be recognized as a dramatist.
Success of 'Iolanthe'
They quarreled incessantly and had
their most historic and dispiriting
squabble when Gilbert resented the
petty price of a carpet for The Savoy
theatre which had been purchased
while he was in India.
It was following the success of the
gay operetta 'Iolanthe' upon which
Gilbert had toiled until he was heart-
broken over the death of his mother
that Sullivan was knighted and the
sensitive Gilbert completely ignored.
Years later he himself was knighted
by Edward VII and accepted the
honor grumbling because it had been
bestowed upon him as a "playwright"
rather than as a "dramatist." Sul-
livan died of bronchitis and heart-
trouble at fifty-nine; while Gilbert
died of a heart attack suffered when
he attempted to save a young woman
to whom he had been giving a swim-
ming lesson, from drowning at Grim's
Dyke where he had retired. He was
74 years old.
The work of Sir William Shwenk
Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan has
remained perennially young because
of their clever satires on social and
political situations were so vital
though their characters were hardly
human beings.

Volunteers Battling Forest Fires In North

I am often asked questions about
modern lenses such as: What is an
achromatic lens? If a single menis-
cus lens made of one piece of glass
were used in a camera we would find
that the lens brought light of differ-
ent colors to a focus at different
points. But a lens of one type of
glass will place the colors in different
positions than another type of glass.
Two glasses are selected that have
different chromatic charactertistics
so that when these two glasses are
used together they correct each other
and, all colors are brought to a focus
at the same. point. Of course it is
more complex than that but this is
the basic principle.
What is an anastigmat lens? The
diaphram as you probably know, is
the adjustable opening that limits the
amount of light passing through the
lens, or better yet let us say that it
limits the working aperture of the
When the lens is placed behind the
diaphram, straight lines near the
margin of the picture seem to curve
outward; when the diaphram is
placed on the other side of the lens
the lines appear to curve in the op-
posite direction, so by using two
lenses and placing them one in front
and the other behind the diaphram,
one counteracts the other and the
lines are straightened out. Again I
say this is only a simple explana-
tion of the basic principles and in ac-
tual practice it takes much more
than this, 'but it would be impossible
to go into that in this column.
To get results from your camera
you need never know any of the for-
mulas involved in lens grinding, but
there are certain simple things that
you should know. For instance: Do
you know if the lens moves back-
ward or forward when you change
from focus at three feet to infinity?
For your information, it moves back-
If I were to try to list all the little
things like this that are essential to
good work I would need the whole
paper. There are only a few funda-
mentals and all the others you could
figure out from these fundamental
facts, if you cared to. I would ad-
vise you to attempt to learn the sinple
underlying facts, involved in photo-
graphy and then you will, with the
aid of a little careful thinking, be
able to work out for yourself most
of the problems that confront you
every day.

Adverse comment resulting from the dropping of two Jewish athletes,
Martin Glickman (left) of Brooklyn, and Sam Stoller (right) of Cin-
cinnati, from the American 400-meter relay team, caused American
Olympic officials in Berlin some worry. Stoller, who has another year
of competition at the University of Michigan, said the episode had so s,
disturbed him that he intends to quit track altogether. Glickman charged
"politics" caused the team shakeup.
