Good Qualities of
New Material Made
From Corn, Numerous
. By PAUL F. ELLIS
t'nitvd Prn, Staff (orr.pond.nt
NEW YORK, April 18 (UP)—A
new material, vicara, a by-product
of agriculture, is opening the way
for many new industrial-type fab-
John H. Karrh, of the Virginia-
Carolina Chemical Co., tells about
the new vicara in the current is-
sue of the Chemurgic Digest, and
its growing applications.
In the first place, Karrh reports,
vicara ia the end product of a some-
what complicated process of ex-
tracting protein from corn, known
as sein. To make vicara, he said,
the protein molecules are uncoiled,
Phi Beta Kappa Key
On Quiz Program
By VIRGINIA MacPHERSON
United Pr**» Hollywood Correspondent
HOLLYWOOD, April 18 (UP)—
y/e had a whack at one of those
1 quiz shows recently—and if we
had any scruples at all we’d turn
in our Phi Beta Kappa key.
The MacPherson brains carried us
through with flying colors—to the
bottom of the contestant list. (If
this happens much oftener we’re
gonna start believing all those
things the boss yells at us).
General idea of the fling, the
man told us, was to find out what
it’s like to be on a quiz show.
So we bounced over to Walter
O’Keefe’s “Double - or - Nothing”
program, all a’quiver to demon-
strate our quick-on-the- trigger
So what happened? Practically
nothing. Everybody else on the
show answered more questions, got
more laughs, and won more money
than we did.
Choke of Subjects
O’Keefe handed all four contest-
ants a choice of 18 topics. We could
have picked questions about sym-
bols on a weather map, birthstones,
Boy Scout merit badges, vehicle,
drivers, or bed sheets. f ■ '
We know from nothing about
weather symbols or birthstones.
We’ve never earned a merit badge
from a Boy Scout. And that bed
sheet thing sounded tricky. So we
picked vehicle drivers.
The preliminaries were simple
enough. We breezed through those
because we could tell O’Keefe the
driver of a car for hire is called a
cab driver. Smart, huh?
We also popped out quick-like
with the dazzling information that
a driver of a train is an engineer.
Coronation of Tarleton Queen
at the Tarleton Memorial Athletic
Field will take place at 8:15 p.m.
April 29. This event is one of the
activities to take place during
Parents’ and Ex-Students' Day at
The Queen will be crowned by
Cadet Colonel Prosper Walker. She
is being selected by a secret com-
mittee composed of five teachers
and seven students, all women and
girls. The identity of the queen
will be kept secret until her
tied together chemically and (Told you we had a Phi Beta Kap-
stretehed and then tied tighter and
“The uncoiling of
______Wag ■. ....... „ _
molecule is called “denaturing’ and water content of an ink bottle ?
pa key somewhere in the attic.)
Then things got tougher. What,
O’Keefe wanted to know, is the
involves treatment with a caustic
soda solution. The denatured or
straightened-out protein molecules
are then forced through spiner*
ettes into an acid-precipitating
bath. At this point the filaments
bear little resemblance to the end
“The fiber is then partially cured
(tied), Stretched and then com-
pletely cured (tied to a proper de-
gree of tightness by a series of
hardening baths and treatments.”
The resulting vicara, Karrh said,
ia a versatile material. It takes
most of the dyes, it mixes with
rayon and nylon or can be used
alone in the manufacture of cloth.
Color of the new fiber, he said,
is light golden. It ia lesa inflam-
mable than the celluloaic fibers and
has shown to be as warm as wool,
according to Karrh.
More advantages, Karrh said, in-
clude: resistance to moth and mil-
dew, non-itching and never known
to cause an allergy, no offensive
odor, age has no effect on mate-
rial, and the material is easy to
He reports that the material can
be used for men and women’s fab-
rics, including men’s lightweight

Hera From California
Mrs. Mary Fehl of Los Angeles,
Calif., is visiting her mother, Mrs.
J. F. Keeney and family.
Huh? We don’t even know how
much INK there is in an ink
A college student from Tucson,
Ariz., answered that one. He got
80 bucks for announcing any fool
knows an ink bottle is half watfcr.
We could have won $110 if we’d
known the only neutral territory
during the Civil War. Couldn’t even
give the man a wiRf guess.
But a young man from England,
who’s hitch-hiking his way across
the U. S., sure could. He rattled
off Mr. Vernon quick as anything.
Said he’d learned it in school and
he didn’t even know what a Phi
Beta Kappa thingamajig was.
Goes Back to England
He figured he’d spend his loot on
a one-way ticket home to England.
But not the ink bottle expert. He
was gonna blow his on "some ex-
citement in Hollywood.” Said he’d
been here 24 hours and hadn’t
found any yet.
The other contestant, a lady
black-jack dealer from Reno, Nev.,
answered all her questions, too. We
guess she’s used to raking in easy
But that O’Keefe was a gentle-
man to the end. Said he was glad
we hadn’t been too smart. Makes
the program funnier to have one
dumbell on, he beamed, pumping
our hand. Hmmm . . .
Returns to Temple
W. T. Poteet, who has been a
patient in the Veterans Hospital
at Temple for the past several
weeks, returned there Sunday after
a visit with his wife at their home
on North Ollie Street and his moth-
er, Mrs. Maggie Poteet.
