TODAY «"d HMNK PARKER ST0CKBRI06E I u •I HELIUM advantages By the aid of helium new records for deep-seu diving were set recent- ly. This gas which enables air- ships to soar, also enables human beings to go deeper in the ocean than anyone has ever gone before. The trick is to pump a mixture of helium and oxygen into the diver's helmet while he is submerged. Wil- liam Badders, Master Diver of the United States Navy went down 401 feet from the U.S.S. Falcon and re- *^ined submerged at that depth for 0}^f an hour, with no ill effects. { The greatest danger to deep-sea divers is the necessity of keeping the air pressure inside the diving suits as great as that exerted by the sea water from outside, which increases with the depth. Under such high pressures the nitrogen of the air pumped in penetrates the blood-vessels and causes a paraly- sis which is often fatal after the diver has been hauled up. With helium substituted for nitrogen that danger is eliminated. # * ♦ * TREASURE .... rec...

This would indicate a carry-over of all growths of cotton on August 1, 1940, not materially different from the near record stocks of 21,900,000 bales at the beginning of the current season "With the same harvested acre- age as in 1939, and with yields equal to the 5-year 1934-38 average the 1940 production of American cotton would be considerably less than in 1939," the report stated. foreign , THE CITIZENS JOURNAL, ATLANTA, TEXAS The 1940-41 fbreign crop is expect- ed to show at least some decline.
