Carbon Dioxide
Is Found Useful
In present War
By HOWARD W. BLAKESLEE
NEW YORK-The gas surprise of
this war is harmless carbon dioxide.
Carbon dioxide is the fizz of soft
drinks, the collar on beer, the stuff
that nature put in the air to make
man breathe regularly.
With all nations set for poison gas
as a result of World War experience,
carbon dioxide stole in the back way.
It ferried the Germans across
flooded Dutch lowlands and Euro-
pean rivers.
In an attack on England it will
certainly be used for life saving, and
might be one of the essentials of
the threatened channel crossing.
It is saving aviators on both sides
from fire and from drowning.
Used In Fire-Fighting
The facts about the war uses of
this gas come from Walter Kidde,
New York engineer who was one of
the pioneers in use of carbon dioxide
for fire-fighting. He poured gaso-
line into the hold of a derelict ship
at London, lighted it and snuffed it
out with jets of carbon dioxide before
a surprised audience.
A bottle about twice the size of
the family quart-of-milk container
is attached to folded rubber boats.
It is filled with liquefied carbon di-
oxide, which is carbon dioxide gas
under pressure.
The turn of a valve releases this
liquid, which expands so fast it rush-
es out as gas and inflates a large boat
in a few seconds. That's how the
Nazis crossed the water defenses of
the lowlands.
Similar bottles of the gas in three
seconds inflate the rubber life rafts
of aviators dropping into the sea.
The fighter who has to bail out
over water yanks a cord on his vest.
This opens a tiny bottle of liquid
carbon dioxide which inflates the
vest to the volume of a life pre-
server.
Attack Over Water
The extremely small liquid com-
pass into which a huge volume of
carbon dioxide will conveniently and
safely pack renders it a formidable
factor in attack over water. The gas
is lightweight, can't be seen, is odor-
less and has a very slight sharp
taste.
Catapult planes have automatically
opening carbon dioxide bottles which
pop open and balloon out rubberized
floats for planes which miss the air-
craft carrier or have to land on wa-
ter.
In the form of water wings, the
carbon dioxide bags are used for land
planes which have to fight over
water.
For fire-fighting, one of the new-
est uses is British. Dry ice (solid
carbon dioxide at about 110 degrees
below zero) is held ready at training
fields. When. a cadet crash results
in a flaming plane, the dry ice bri-
gade, in asbestos suits, rushes up with
projectors that send a snowstorm on
the plane.

It all depends on your type. If you're the natural, free-and-easy
kind, the little checked gingham is your necessity. It is pleated all
around, and is accented by a flurry of white falling from the neckline.
If you are a sophisticate, wear the coat and dress of printed silk. . The
coat hugs close at the waist where it closes. The dress has buttons all
along the front. A cartwheel hat touched with flowers tops it off.

By KIRKE L. SIMPSON
It will take time to disclose whether
Italy's highly advertised offensives in
Egypt and British Africa are the
real thing, or just a minor part of
the Battle of Britain in the Hitler-
Mussolini strategy.
There seem to be urgent reasons
pressing on Germany to push the
fight with Britain to a finish at the
earliest possible moment, either by
invasion of the island or starvation.
It is a far-fetched conjecture to say
that the Italian offensive means
there has been a shift in roles be-
tween the Axis teammates, as some
London comment suggests, and that
Mussolini's desert legions are to carry
the brunt of the attack while Ger-
many merely holds England under
siege.
There has never been any effort
by the Nazi press or by Hitler him-
self to conceal the fact that in Nazi
eyes Italy was only a useful tail to.
the German kite. Her function in
the Battle of France was obviously
merely a holding function. Actually,
Italian attacks along the Franco-
Italian frontiers seem to have been
staged more for Italian home con-
sumption than because they contrib-
uted greatly to the defeat of France.
It is well within the range of possi-
bility, therefore, that Italy's drive
to seize the Suez Canal is more or
less a sideshow for what Mussolini
knows to be impending in the Battle
of Britain. Certainly nature con-

fronts him with more formidable
odds in the shifting desert sands his
troops must traverse than even the
English Channel-North Sea "moat"
about England offers to Germany.
According to Nazi conceptions, this
has been a German-British war from
the outset. Even France was of sec-
ondary importance to Hitler. From
his viewpoint, as reflected repeatedly
in his public utterances, the war
can even be personalized into a
struggle between himself and Prime
Minister Winston Churchill of Brit-
ain.
The Battle of the Mediterranean
outlets, whether the Suez Canal or
the Straits of Gibraltar, will be lost
or won in all probability in England.
Mussolini is well aware of that. He
probably also is aware that a com-
pletely victorious Hitler would be apt
to divide the spoils of victory to suit
himself or in proportion to the
amount of aid he had received from
Italy.
To date the Italian-British con-
flict has brought no more than iso-
lated skirmishing. Italy has not even
succeeded in bombing the British out
of Malta. She has not removed the
threat of the British fleet in the
Mediterranean.
Rome press forecasts of an Italian
"desert blitzkrieg" that could over-
come lack of water, climatic condi-
tions and all the other natural fac-
tors that have made Egypt impreg-
nable from the west for centuries
do not sound convincing.

Have you started thinking yet how
you'll look in the class room this
winter, when all the other little coeds
will be in their smooth new garbs?
Make out your budget now so that
you can start to think of new sweat-
ers and skirts. The sweaters will still
be baggy, but there'll be a surpris-
ing comeback for close fitting wools.
They'll probably still have the gros-
grain binding but won't slip down
on you hips so low, nor fall off your
shoulders so loosely.
The color scheme is to range from
white through pastels to dark hues.
Skirts will not vary quite so extreme-
ly in colors, for dark is to be pre-
dominant, but pastels will continue
to be seen even in the winter.
There still won't be much mater-
ial used in the length of skirts, for
they continue short, but it'll all go

in the width. Skirts are to flair and
flair in pleats, fullness or gores. A
certain amount of belted tops are still
in the offing. (
Blouses are sure to threaten the
leading position of sweaters. In the
fall and spring will be many tailored
silks and cottons. Their decoration
will be in the print rather than in
the cut, although plain colors will
hold their own. Checks and plaids
should do as well as strips and dots.
When winter turns on its full blast,
flannel blouses, in short or long
sleeves will be all-popular.
