Ca,* * SMOKELESS POWDER SHORTAGE 9 'Bright Boys' Give Accounting Return After 10 Years to Tell of Work Since Talk With Edison. NEW YORK.--Nine young men kept a solemn covenant with Thom- as A. Edison--a promise they ut- tered as "America's brightest boys" when they knelt 10 years ago at the feet of the great inventor and told him they would make of themselves useful servants of American sci- ence. A decade ago they were among 49 high school lads picked painstaking- ly by every state and the District of Columbia to submit themselves to Edison's scrutinizing quest for the nation's brightest potential sci.

The army is putting the lid on as s military precaution. Inside fact is that news of recent contracts was released only to offset {be impression that the work was not getting ahead. Secretary of War fitimson had stated on August 9 that contracts had been let for only 33 planes of the 4,000 authorized in June. Just a month later, September 10, the war department released figures {bat told a different story. Instead of 33, the number of planes contract- ed for was 2,797. These figures were put out to re- assure the p.~blic. But from now on there will be no talking. The war departmeut is following the lead of General Marshall, who says, "You Can't play poker with everybody looking at your hand."

A pri- vate demonstration was made for James L. Fly, chairman of the Fed- eral Communications commission. Kesten says a method developed by Dr Peter C. Goldmark, CBS tele- vision engineer, makes color recep- tion possible for sets already in use, with only minor adjustment and the addition of a simple attachment. Goldmark simplified color televi- sion by finding a way to limit color to the standard wave band used for ordinary television. Church Hitching Post Reserved for Farmer PITTSBURGH. -- A hitching post marks a reserved spot out- side of the Clinton United Pres- byterian church, where automo- biles never park. The space is reserved for Wash- ington Jackson, 82-year-old farm- er, who goes to church every Sunday by horse and buggy. Jacks,m, who makes the four- mile trip to the church in an hour, has been using that method to get to meeting for 56 years. His horse, Billy, is 30 years old. Purchasing Power Is at U. S.
