Soviets Claim Mars Flora Discovery

By The Associated Press
Not being satisfied with claim-
ing the discovery and invention of
things on earth that are usually
credited to non-Russians, the So-
viets are now claiming discovery
of flora on the planet Mars.
. The flora is of two kinds-
summer and winter, the Soviet
radio said. The Martian flora does
not emit infrared rays as that on
Earth, because it has lost that
ability in its constant adaptations
to conditions of lower tempera-

BESIDES THIS phenomenal oc-
currence, a Russian medical jour-
nal confidently announced that
Nikolai Lunin of Dorpat University
discovered vitamins in 1800.
Darwin was a slowpoke com-
pared with the Russians, too, ac-
cording to a Moscow newspaper.
He was way behind such Rus-
sian scientists as Lomonosov,
Kaverznev, Radishev and others
who came upon Darwinian
theories in the 1700's.
This sudden rash of inventions
and greatnesses thrust upon the

modest Russians has been going
on since the autumn of 1947.
The list is endless, but here are
some of the more startling ones:

RADIO WAS first discovered by
Alexander Popov in 1895.
The electric light came into
miraculous being in Russia more
than 100 years ago.
Just last year they came out
with some more:
Russian scientists invented pen-
icillin nearly 80 years ago.
Yahlochkov invented the
flashlight, Ussagin the trans-
former and M. and Mme. Lazar-
enko electric welding.
Even explorers got into the pic-
ture. Russian sailors were the dis-
coverers of the West-┬▒rn side of
America in the early 1700's.
AND THIS YEAR they got even
more interesting:
A Russian flew the first heavier-
than-air craft 21 years before the
Wright brothers even got off the
A Soviet parachutist is
claimed to be the first to jump

Nobody but Pavel Schilling in-
vented the telephone in 1832, not

A RUSSIAN first learned of at-
mosphere on the planet Venus.
Russians invented the first jet
planes in 1849 and Lt. Gen. Boris
Yurev built the first helicopter in
The first oil well was not in
Pennsylvania, but the Russians
won't say where it is. They do
tell us that Sidorov, an indus-
trialist, sank the first well in

Besides all this, Russians in-

F.D.R. Jr.
Asks Bill
For Houses
WASHINGTON -('P)- Frank-1
lin D. Roosevelt, Jr.,speaking for1
the first time as a member of1
Congress, called yesterday for pas-
sage of President Truman's big
housing bill-as a blow to Social-
ism and Communism.S
Scoffing at opposition shouts
that the bill is socialistic, the tall,
34-year old son of the late Presi-
dent, who was sworn in last week,
told the House:
"THE SLUMS OF America are
breeding spots of Communism, and
in passing this legislation we will
be striking a blow against Social-1
ism and Communism and for our
free enterprise system and our
American Democracy."
Only about 50 memoers were
in the Chamber when he began
to speak, but about twice that
number had gathered before he
finished. Democrats applauded.
So did spectators in the gallery.
Young Roosevelt spoke shortly
after a Republican, Rep. Javits of
New York, predicted substantial
Republican help for the Adminis-
tration's controversial housing bill
--and that it will pass.
peared to be gaining ground.
Meanwhile, the opposition
hurled epithets of "Socialism"
and "economic slavery" at the
bill, and Administrationists cried
out against "greedy lobbyists."
The measure, as drawn, calls
for up to $400,000,000 annually to
subsidize the rents of low-income
persons who would be tenants in
publicly-owned housing projects.
It also provides funds for slum
clearance and farm housing aids.

dents in the Offfice of Student

Requests for University ap-
proval must be accompanied by
written acceptances from chap-
erons invited to the event. The
president of the group sponsor-
ing the party must sign the re-
quest, indicating his endorse-
ment of the chaperons selected.
