Washington.--Theft of a sample block of labradorite, the mineral to be used in the base of the "Rain- bow Division" arch in New York city, may delay work on this war memorial for a year, according to the sculptor. This particular sample block was needed In matching materials for the memorial. "The finest specimens of labradorite, beautifully iridescent member of the feldspar family, come from certain sections of the Labrador coast which are ice-bound much of the year," says a bulletin from the National Geo- graphic ~society. "This 'peacock stone' is found also in Norway and in Siberia, but It was first identified as a distinct species from rock samples picked np on I'aul's island, on the north Labrador coast, in 1770, and named for the region of its discovery. Stone Itself Somber Gray. "Although labradorite is noted among mineralogists for its brilliant sheen and flashing blue, purple, green, bronze and red light-rays of exquisite beauty, the mineral itself possesses no play of many glossy hues, given off by the stone in sunlight is the result of optical interference. "In other words, the internal structure of the mineral breaks up Into its color components the white light which penetrates the glassy sur- face. Some of these light rays are absorbed by tim stone and do not affect the eye. Tim rest are reflected as brilliantly colored llashes by thou- sands upon thousands of microscopic particles within tim feldspar. "In the mineralogy wing of the Na- tional museum in Washington a large piece of labradorite is so placed In a glass case that its cut and [~lished face catches the eyes of visitors as soon as they enter the wing, although the case stands well back toward the middle of a long halL This specimen has a bluish-green sheen, somewhat like that of the wings of tropical but- terflies used to decorate trays and pic- tures. Step a few feet to the right or left of the polished face of the stone, however, and It becomes an inert gray mass resembling a piece of granite. Quarry a Dazzling Spot. "Blue-green is the commonest colors- tlon given off by the mineral, but many specimens have been fouml wlth a bronze-red hue lovely to behold. From others yellow, violet and orange tines flash like the flame of a fire opal o~t of the iridescent crystals. *'The chief source of this mineral ts a lonely region along the Labrador oast north of IIamilton inlet. A few years ago an enterprising American ,~pened a quarry on the island of Napoktulagatsuk. near Natn (about ;ntdway between the northern tip of Labrador and IIamilton inlet), and at- ~m~npted to place iabradorite on the market as a semi-precious stone. The enterprise apparently was not suc- cessf~l, but the ab'mdoned quarry is a dazzling spot in the sunlight, with the rough faces of the rock throwing off gorgeously-tinted rays that flash and change with every new- angle of vlslo~. "Pieces of labradorite have been set In Jewelry, although the stone is dlffi- ,cult $o work. Its cleavable nature and brittleness usually prevent the tufting of a well-polished surface. ~ the same reason its ase is llm- lted in building construction, although it Is sometimes employed as a decora- tive feature. Skilled stone cutters have made vases and lamp bases from labradorlte that are particularly prized by art collectors. "The mineral owes its origin to vol- canic action in the Labrador region millions of years ago. Molten rock, forced between layers of older rock, crystalized and formed deposits of labradorite and other minerals, which were later exposed by erosion." Autoist Injured by Hurdling Buck Deer Ashland, Ore.--A four-polnt buck deer was bagged by Lee Wallls, mall carrier, between Klamath Falls and Ashland, in a manner which nearly resulted in the death of Wallis and the wreck of his ma- chine as Wallls sped along the Green Springs highway near White Star station. The deer, running at full speed, came into the road abreast of the car. It leaped, but its head and front quarters struck the wind- shield, the hind legs smashing through the window in such a man- ner that Wallls was seriously cut. Heroic Air Mail Flyer Honored l're.,:idm:t ltooseveh presenting Mal B. Freeburg, airmail pilot of Minne- sota, with the airmail flyers' medal of honor. Freeburg won the award by his courage and coolheadedness In maneuvering a disabled passenger plane to safe landing, lie was flying from Minneapolis to Chicago with eight passengers and a load of mail when one of his propellers snapped. The motor, an out, board one. jolted loose and lodged in the landing gear struts. Freeburg Immedi- ately cut the switches on the other motors, and, after investigating, switched them on again, heading for the Mississippi river. At an altitude of about 1,800 feet he maneuvered his plane until the motor fell away. lie then headed for Chicago, and made a safe landing despite a twisted wheel. Seeks Cure for Cancer in Poison of Cobras Bombay.--Snake venom may hold the toxic element being sought in the world-wide quest for an efficacious can- cer treatment M. Robert Hemardinquer, acting for the Pasteur institute in Paris, is here arranging for the production of at least 21 pounds of venom for use in experiments in the treatment of can- c~r. He Is appealing particularly for cobras and estimates he will require the venom of at least 5,000 snakes If he is to collect the quantity he wants in a reasonable time. A snake farm has already been set up at the Haffkin institute, where 50 snakes have been installed and are un- dergoing treatment designed to pro- duce the maximum amount of the deadly poison. Use of venom for the treatment of cancer is still in the experimental stage, and he would not disclose de- tails. Will Restore Palace of Mo3r Italy Undertakes Important Project at Ferrara. F~rrata, Italy. A department of the [,~alL~n govermnent has undertaken the restoration of the palace of Imdovlcus the Moor, great warrior of the Flf. teenth century. Mussolini regarded the palace as one of the greatest architectural gems of at! times and personally arranged that one million life be appropriated to- ~rds its restoration. The plans have been prepared and since the required funds now are avail- able. specialized artists already have Baldwin Apples Started From a Chance Seedling Amherst, Mass.--A chance seedling which sprang up on the farm of one John Ball, near Lowell. 30 or 35 years before the American revolution, was the origin of the Baldwin apple of today. Later, according to W. tL Thles, Massachusetts State college pomol- ogist, the farm became the property of a man named Butters. The seed- ling became a large tree, woodpeckers made their home In It. Butters dubbed it '~The Woodpecker Tree," and apples from it were called woodpecker ap- ples. The apple became quite popular lo- cally, and many trees were started from scions taken from the original tree. Shortly after the revolution ended, Deacon Samuel Thompson of Woburn took some of the woodpecker apples to a Colonel Baldwin of that town. It was the colonel who gave the apple his name and started it along the road to its present high place as one of the outstanding commercial apples of the nation, famed for Its cooking and keeping qualities. started on the restoration of different rooms connected by loggias designed by the Architect Rossetti. The palace was bought by the gov- ernment 12 years ago to prevent its further deterioration due not only to the ravages of time. but to the fact It had been adapted as lodgings for poor people. Rossetti designed the palace itself and most of it was built by a stone mason named Castro and by the sculp- tor Ambrogio da Milano. It is ~ne of the best Renaissance buildings at For- rare and, although greatly damaged, Its main architectural lines remain In- tact. The palace will be used for a mu- seum. As a result the work now un- dertaken will restore the three main halls on the ground floor to their orig- inal magnificence with frescoes repre- senting Biblical and mythological scenes. New frescoes will be painted in the Hall of Honor and in the many rooms on the first floor as well These rooms reveal admirable decorations even in their present state. The restorqtion work is based on ex- Isting historical documents and re- productions of the existing frescoes so that It will be as nearly accurate as possible. Smallest Park Claimed by Town in California Vlsalla, Callf.--Vlsalia challenges the world to prove It has a smaller city park than Visalia's. The park at St. John, N. B., measur- ing 20 feet by 6, which ~laimed the "world's smallest" honors, is much big- ger and cannot honestly claim the title, Visallans contended. The town's "Lone Oak" park, sit- uated at the west entrance to the city, is but 10 by 10 feet, they pointed out. The park, containing a huge oak tree, is squarely in the middle of the main Faithful Watchdog Left Life Income by Mistress Chllllcothe, Ohio. -- A watchdog, "Jack," her sole companion and pro- tector in her suburban home here, is left the income from a $5,000 fund set up in the will of the late Mary B.
