Crews Etush Preparation

-Dr. Jean Piccard eagerly scanned
weather maps tonight as his ground
crews rushed final preparations for
his ascension in a strange multi-bal-
ion aircraft.
Word that a high pressure area was
descending from the north sent the
stratosphere balloon experimenter
and his aides into high speed activity,
testing ballast, checking the sensitive
ultra-short wave radio equipment
and arranging a multitude of import-
ant details.
Mac Emerson of the St. Paul air-
port weather bureau said conditions
might be favorable tomorrow night.

Sen. Robinson Honored
By Great Of Nation I
WASHINGTON, July 16.-(A')-The
great of the nation honored Senator
Joseph T. Robinson in death today
with a reverent little service which,

in its hushed simplicity, belied the
name state funeral.
Led by President Roosevelt, his face
drawn and unsmiling, they gathered
in the Senate chamber, where for
years Robinson directed the battles
of his beloved Democratic party. His
flower-banked, silvery coffin lay a few
feet from the desk which had been
In reverence, they heard a few
prayers, familiar passages from the
scriptures, the softly moving cadences
of the Episcopal service for the dead,
hymns that an older generation
loved. Then silently they departed.
It was a state funeral without pomp,
without ostentation, without eulogy,
without military display. It was a
service in keeping, his friends bt -
lieved, with the blunt, simple char-
acter of the man it honored.

Tiwenty Rodies Are Removed From Intdiana Mmne A1fter Blast

Twenty men were crushed and burned to death and three others were seriously injured in an explosion in
the Glendora Company's Baker mine, five miles from Sullivan, Ind. The explosion occurred half an hour after
203 went into the mine to start the day's work. Members of the rescue staff are shown above loading the
body of one of twenty victims into an ambulance, for removal to Sullivan morgue. Jerry Cox, one of the
survivors, said "The explosion picked me and my buddies up and rolled us like footballs. Some of my buddies
were thrown against the wall and they didn't have a chance." A portion of the crowd of hundreds of rela-
tives and friends who assembled at the mine entrance, is shown below. They waited patiently for the men
to come out or news of those who failed to return.

FOR THE AVERAGE PERSON, reading a good magazine is a well-earned relaxa-
tion. There is no relaxation for your eyes, however, even in the best light. They
keep right on working. If the light is not right too much of your energy is used up
in the effort to see. The result is apt to be eyestrain and early fatigue, which take
away much of the enjoyment of reading.
Even for occasional reading, you should have good lighting, scientifically
designed for safe and comfortable seeing. You should have light free from giare
and harsh contrasts, to protect eyesight. If your eyes are defective, good lighting
will generally aid them even more than it helps normal eyes. But good lighting'
is not a substitute for the service of your eyesight specialist. Consult him at regu-
