BENAVIDES FACTS, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1939
yd State Fair Over
T Million Mark
Breaking its all time attendance
record and going over the million
mark for the fifth time, the State
lair of Texas ended here Sunday
night with the final reading on
the gates, 1,036,938, eight thou-
sand more than ever passed thru
the gates during a 16 day interval
k Not only was the attendance
^remarkable at the 51st Annual
State Fair", but a remarkable pro-
gram was offered in practically
every department. More space
was sold than ever before, more
concessions, and the State Fair
offered more new features than
had ever been offered before.
It gave the Southwest the great-
est livestock show ever seen, which
was headed by the National Here-
f.-r Show. Hardly had the live-
stock moved off the grounds Sun-
day, but livestock leaders were
busy planning a “bigger and bet-
ter” show for next year,
More than seventy county ex-
hibits were shown and made one
of the most astounding pictures
of farm life ever seen any place.
The county exhibits were aug-
mented by individual farm exhib-
its, future farmer and 4-H club
The Poultry Show was filled
to capacity. The day this depart-
ment opened more than 1700 en-
tires inthe poultry division were
turned down because of the vast
amount of increased interest in
the show this year.
The first chemurgic show ever
held was presented at the State
Fair of Texas and created more
interest than has ever been seen
before in a special display. This
exhibits will be moved by the East
Texas Chamber of Commerce to
the South Texas State Fair at
Every phase of the State Fair
amusement announced increased
grosses for the year and were
highly commendatory on the show
as a whole.
Red Cross Warns Home Is More Dangerous Than Highway
American Red Cross supplies householders and farmers with a check
list of accident hazards in fight against large annual death toll. Hazards
shown: top, left, mowers, harrows and other farm machinery, left in gear
when making repairs, may result in grave injury to farmer. Top right:
pointed shears in the hands of children are as dangerous as matches.
Below right: most home accidents are due to falls, and scatter rugs on
polished floors should be anchored by use of non-skid lining as shown.
TTOME mishaps kill or injure
■I many more persons than motor
vehicles, yet the average house-
holder faces traffic with misgiving
and relaxes at home.
Each year hazards injure more
than 100,000 persons engaged in
farm work, yet the farmer fails to
take safety precautions which the
factory worker adopts as a matter
Together home and farm work ac-
cidents last year killed 35,400 adults
and children and injured the stag-
jgering number of 4,750,000 persons.
To combat this annual accident
scourge the American Red Cross
launched a nation-wide program in
1935 to acquaint householders and
farm workers with the hazards coin-
cident with their work and home
life. This year more than 1900 Red
Cross chapters are sponsoring this
task in the communities they serve.
On October 23 the anual Red
Cross campaign will begin through-
out the nation to assist household-
ers to discover and eliminate haz-
ards liable to cause accidents in
the home. Members of the American
Junior Red Cross and their school-
mates will distribute check lists to
parents and assist in examining
their own homes and in removing
hazards. This Red Cross warning
reaches more than 9,000,000 homes
and farms each year.
The Red Cross stresses the need
of removing hazards which may
cause falls, as this type of accident
resulted in more than half of last
year’s home accident fatalities.
Among chief causes are poorly
lighted stairs, loose railings, small
rugs improperly anchored and chil-
dren’s toys left about. Burns and
explosions caused the next heaviest
loss of life, 5,300 being killed in 1938
tby this type of accident, and the
Red Cross self-check list points to
the danger of scalding liquids in
pots and pans left near the edge of
the stove, matches left within reach
of children, and fireplaces unguard-
ed by proper screening. Other main
causes of accidental death are me-
chanical suffocation, poison gases
and firearms, Red Cross officials
Accident prevention is a part of
the continuing Red Cross program
directed against illness, death and
disaster. All Red Cross services are
supported by the people who join
at the time of the annual Roll Call,
this year from November 11-30.
Typed For Icy
Having discovered that cancer
patients react differently to the
“frozen sleep” treatment, Dr. A.
F. Rieman has set out to deter-
mine whether they can be divided
into types with modifications of
icy relief predetermined for each.
“If I can relieve one out of
100 patients,” the surgeon said,
“1 will feel that I have
done some good. I can only hope
and pray that the treatment will

Thus, Dr. Rieman said, it is
clear that treatments must vary
to get the best results.

The third offers more trouble.
When her bodily temperature
drops to about 94 her general
condition seems to sink, too, and
Little specific treatment is of
•value once a cold has developed,
but much can be done in pre-
venting its spread. Rest—in bed
if the case is severe—serves the
double purpose of helping the
patient overcome the infection and
keeping him isolated.
The most important part of the
treatment is the prevention of
complications. For this purpose
three practical suggestions will be
given. The first of these is to
avoid blowing the nose too hard,
especially when both nosti’ils are
held shut. The second sugges-
tion involves less generally known
facts. Recent research has shown
that alcohol in a certain senes
of experiments on rabbits did not
change their local immunity to
injection of pneumococcus germs.
However, the untreated rabbits
kept the germs isolated at the
‘site of injection whereas in the
rabbits who drank alcohol the or-
ganisms spread throughout the
animals’ bodies. Until equally
careful research has disproved
this recent work, it would be well
for those who wish to keep their
colds from going further to avoid
alcohol, irrespective of their drink-
ing habits at other times. The
third suggestion, and possibly the
most important, is to avoid the
use of oily nasal sprays or drops.
It has been shown that this oil
tends to go directly into the lungs,
and being very slowly .observed,
may cause a type of pneumonia
known as lipoid (fatty) pneu-
monia. This condition is suffi-
ciently frequent, especially in
young children whose well-inten-
tioned parents have given them
such oily preparations, to warrant
the immediate attention of the
public.—Ford Home Almanac.
“Rule of Reason”
In Teaching Of
Youth Is Urged
PURINA MILLS IS
BIG CUSTOMER OF
President Roosevelt charged the
nation’s schools Friday night with
the responsibility of teaching the
coming generation to solve its
problems in the democratic way,
by the “rule of reason,” rather
than by force. *
In a message for American edu-
cation week, which will be ob-
served November 5 to 11, the
president added the hope that
“out of our schools may come
a generation which can persuade
a bleeding world to supplant force
Democracy, Mr. Roosevelt said,
“supplies no easy answer” to
solution of the ever - present
sti’uggles and competitions among
individuals, groups, institutions,
St. Louis, Mo.—Purina Mills, man-
ufacturers of checkerboard feeds and
cereals, ranks high as a customer of
the American Farmer, according to
Fred Osterkamp, manager of the
Mill Supply Department for Purina
Approximately 150,000 acres of soy
beans are required annually to sup-
ply the soy bean meal Purina Mills
uses in its feeds and concentrates.
As a token of appreciation, more
than $2,000,000 is paid annually to
soy bean farmers for their product.
It would require one milking from
4,000,000 average cows to produce
the dried milk that goes into Purina
Chows each year.
Sufficient flour to give every in-
habitant of Canada a 16-ounce loaf
of bread every day for 105 days must
be milled to supply the mill feed
used in a year by Purina Mills.
The yield from 75,000 acres of
good alfalfa land is required to fur-
nish Purina Mills its yearly require-
ment of alfalfa meal. More than
one and one-quarter million dollars
are paid to alfalfa farmers for this
If the beet pulp used by Purina
Mills in a year were to be made into
spaghetti or macaroni, the supply
would feed every person in Italy for
four days. As everyone knows, most
Italians “throw dieting out the win-
The offal from 10,250,000 hogs or
5,125,000 steers is required to furnish
Purina Mills its annual requirement
of meat scrap and tankage.
To provide the cottonseed meal
needed by Purina Mills annually for
its feeds and concentrates requires
the seed from 278,300 acres of cot-
ton. That’s a lot of cotton'when one
thinks of the plowing and picking
that must be done.
Being the manufacturer of the two
wheat cereals—Ralston Wheat Ce-
real and Shredded Ralston—Purina
Mills must buy annually a large
quantity of high-grade wheat. Also,
a sizeable amount of rye is bought
to make its popular, non-fattening
wafer—Ry Krisp. Yes, Purina Mills
is really a big customer of the Amer-

Two Miles Away
Secret details of a “detonator”
lay, declaimed by its sponsor to be
capable of exploding gasoline and
ammunition two miles away, were
submitted to War Department re-
pi’esentatives in San Francisco
The sponsor is Otto H. Mohr,
elderly Oakland, Calif., inventor
and former illuminating engineer
for the Interior Department. He
says he is not a scientist or re-
searcher but a “prosearcher,” a
term he coined to denote “one
who goes ahead instead of back-
trailing- the path of knowledge for
a solution to a problem.”
Mohr declined to give publicly
any technical details except to say
that the process dealt “in part”
with Gamma and Beta rays and
that as yet he had found no way
of controlling the direction of the

Relief At Last
Creomulsion relieves promptly be-
cause it goes right to the seat of the
trouble to loosen germ laden phlegm,
increase secretion and aid nature to
soothe and heal raw, tender, inflam-
ed bronchial mucous membranes.
No matter how many medicines you
have tried, tell your druggist to sell
you a bottle of Creomulsion with the
understanding that you are to like
the way it quickly allays the cough
or you are to have your money back,
for Coughs, Chest Colds, Bronchitis
states and nations.
“The easy answer, the quick but
incomplete answer, is force; tanks
and torpedoes, guns and bombs,’
he continued. “Democracy calls
instead for the application of the
rule of reasons. It calls for fair
discussion and for calm and order-
ly handling of difficult problems.
These vital skills we Americans
must acquire in our schools.”
