Relief Costs Should Dwindle
KLAMATH county welfare bureau expects to enter the
month of May with no employables receiving aid. The
number Retting assistance in April has been limited, and
increasing; spring labor demand is expected to cut the fig
ure to zero within the next few days. For several years
there have been short summer periods when the bureau
had no employables on the assistance list, but the time has
come earlier than usual this year and signs indicate it
will last longer.
This situation reflects the trend toward employment
of all who are willing and able to work in this district,
and that in turn reflects the general condition in the west,
if not in the country as a whole.
The relief bureau is receiving fewer applications for
help from transient families. This is probably because
many of these people are attracted to communities where
there are defense industries, and others are finding work
nearer their homes.
The state employment offices here report a particularly
strong demand for skilled labor, and it is a known fact
that many skilled workers have left this district for work
in defense industry. Farm labor demand, also, is strong,
and it appears at this time there may be a shortage of
farm help before the busy agricultural season is over.
It is plain from this news that the time is at hand for
reduction of the drain upon the public for relief assistance,
and for all able-bodied men to get to work. The costs of
operating defense industries are so enormous, and the
prospects for heavy taxation for this purpose so certain,
that there can be no justification for continued heavy ex
penditures to take care of those who do not take care of
themselves. The stepped-up industrial program, stemming
for the most part from government outlay, should largely
solve the relief problem that has figured so heavily in
public budgets for nearly a decade. The burdened tax
payer deserves this comparatively small offset.
Boys Club Open House
AN example of outstanding community effort in behalf
of its youth is the Boys club, which occupied its new
quarters on Klamath avenue
The Boys club was established in April, 1940, after
years of idle talk here of
where adolescent boys could find wholesome recreation
and companionship. Numerous Klamath business houses
and individuals gave their support to the project and
brought it at last into reality under the leadership of
Gerald Murray, then city recreation officer. His successor,
David Bridge, is carrying on, and again the club has found
widespread support among public-spirited citizens.
' The new location on Klamath avenue is a vast im
provement over the old quarters in the basement at Fifth
and Main streets. It is roomy, light, newly-decorated and
remodeled. It offers increased opportunity for real service.
This week the Boys club is going to have an open
house. It is set for Thursday night Klamath people
should turn out in large numbers to visit the Boys club and
learn what is being done through this fine establishment
in behalf of the city's youngsters.
Gritting Teeth Helps Ease

Studies of pain, showing this
to be true and measuring Just
about how much pain is re
duced, have been completed at
the New York hospital Cornell
medical center here. They are
reported in the Journal of Clin
ical investigation by J. D.
Hardy, H. Coodell and H. G.
The trio tried experiments In
pain on themselves. They are
respectively a thickset man, a
tall, well-developed woman and
a tall man that Is, a fair av
erage of humans.
Foreheads were blackened
with India ink and a heat ray
turned on the black area un
til pain was just felt. The in
tensity of heat sufficient to
cause pain, or the pain thresh
old, was found to be constant
from day to day under normal
circumstances, and approximate
ly the same in all individuals.
This threshold of feeling pain
could be raised In various ways.
Gripping a metal bar tightly
as possible raised It by 7 to IS
per cent. This was equivalent
to reducing the sensation by
that amount.
Binding the head firmly with
a bandage was worth 4 to 6
per cent pain reduction. Pain
In another part of the body al
so reduced the hurt. If this
other pain was intense, the fore
head pain could get as much
s 35 per cent greater before
It was felt
An extremely loud nolle
raised the pain perception by
14 to 82 per cent. That Is, the

When oniatec wen, takn if
was found that even though the
pun inresnoia was raised, very
severe pain was still felt. But
it no longer bothered the ex

by the drug.

Hitler Conquers
On the surface there Is a dis
crepancy between what this
government is doing and what
it it saying.
State Secretary Hull demand
ed action to assure the arrival
of American cargoes in Britain.
Navy Secretary Knox said the
same thing, only stronger, add
ing: "This Is our fight," and
implying that we should be In
it. Even Mr. Roosevelt said, we
are going to fight for the. demo
cratic processes.
But when the action was
taken none of these suggestions
was fulfilled on the surface.
Quite the opposite, Mr. Roose
velt only extended "the Atlantic
patrols to protect the western
hemisphere," as he explained it
The area limits ot the expansion
were not given, but as Mr.
Roosevelt further explained
them, they had nothing to do
with convoying, and were not
even directly Joined with aid
to England.
The deeper you go below this
surface, however, the discrep
ancy narrows sharply.
One Inch below, officials are
saying off the record the ex
pansion of patrols is part of a
modern substitute for convoy
ing. The old system has been
found obsolete.
The British have been meet
ing with our officials here late
ly, particularly our naval ex
perts, and have worked out a
new shipping scheme. London is
going to follow the advice and
experience of our navy, convert
ing several fast merchantmen
into auxiliary aircraft carriers
by construction of landing decks.
Enough planes will be carried
to fight German bombers on the
convoy spot At least one such
ship will accompany convoys
along with a surface destroyer
and a courvette.
And as has already been an
nounced, fast merchant ships
will go across singly, slower
vessels being grouped according
to speed in convoys. This should

take care of the German threat
to shipping.
Mr. Roosevelt's action would
furnish eyes for this new system.
As Interpreted sub - officially
here, American fighting ships
would scout the seven seas for
"threats against this hemi
sphere." Wherever an axis ves
sel is sighted, whether beaded
toward American or not, they
will inform the British as well
as Mr. Roosevelt.
In this semi-official interpre
tation, Mr. Roosevelt is setting
up a world spotting system, not
only to defend this hemisphere
but to help the British get our
goods across, and in ultimate
purpose to defeat the axis.
Deeper down in authentic
private official comment there
is reason to believe the action
reaches even further to the ex
treme to which Mr. Knox point
ed, namely that we are ready
to fight
The orders to our scouting
patrols have not been divulged,
but one report from an official
quarter suggests their behavoir
Is to be much stronger than
merely reporting any time they

son to believe they may if
occasion demands intervene

first, but may fire back if at
At this point the discrepancy
vanishes. What Mr. Roosevelt
has done, becomes precisely
what Messrs. Knox and Hull
recommended in their speeches
(which FDR read before they
were delivered).
If this interpretation is veri
fied by future developments on
the high seas, the expansion of
the sea patrol really consti
tutes a dare to Germany to fire
the first shot.
Executive mirrors here reflect
the grimness of this unofficial
interpretations, but most ad

ers prefer the milder official
possibilities. Even those senate1

The trail, which starts at the

labels for various points of in

added as new plants appear, ac

28 ) The Evening Outlook
Mid Saturday that "from all
available information" it appears
impossible for the giant Douglas
B-19 which the company says
is the largest airplane ever built
to Uke oft on a test flight be
fore July.
Earlier Information had Indic
ated the test might be made early
next month.
The newspaper reports that
the craft's 82 tons Is too heavy
for the four-Inch, 3.000-foot
asphalt runway and that a con
crete runway 200 feet wide and
4.000 feet long, varying In depth
from six to nine Inches, must be
poured before the takeoff.
The pouring Is estimated to re
quire 48 days, with another SO
days for curing.
The plane, the paper says, was
moved 17S feet a few days ago
and so badly cracked the asphalt
that 15 tons of paving material
was required to fill the ruts. The
craft's main landing wheels are
98 Inches In diameter, the balan
cing nose wheel 54 Inches. The
B-19 has a 212-foot wingspread
and Is designed to fly distances
equivalent to crossing the Atlan
tic and return.
Douglas officials had no com
ment. Clark Declares

Sell Bonds Opens
WASHINGTON, April 28 (A1
Five thousand separate radio an
nouncements today inaugurated
the most intensive selling cam
paign in the peacetime history
of the nation, as the treasury
began its dime-to-thousands de
fense savings drive.
It is expected to rival and
perhaps surpass the now historic
Liberty bond campaigns of the
World war days.
The new securities, of which
the treasury hopes to sell at
least $3,000,000,000 In the next
18 months, go on sale Thursday
morning in 16.000 postoffices
and several thousand banks.
Later department stores and
thousands of other places may
handle them.
