Above, it is shown on land and, at right, crossing the Hudson after climbing the Palisades.

Housekeeping Tools To Minimize Labor
A rubber cap replaces the metal one taken from a bottle of ginger ale or other refreshment and, being air-tight, preserves what is left of the contents for future use. The deep groove lets the core go inside the bottle when you give it a twist, and allows the rim of the cap to encircle the outside of the top of the bottle. The three aluminum kettles shown here fit inside one another so that a different dish may be cooked in each, although only one burner of a stove is required. The upper kettles may be used for steaming or boiling. Handles are insulated and do not get hot.

It is a museum and a laboratory with a factory adjacent. We see what has been, is and may be in the field of illumination. Light used to be regarded as just something to see by. Here we find it is a force, a substance, an aesthetic material.

New York in the Year 2000
Cities of 30,000,000, Skyscraper Sidewalks, Roof Top Airports and Food Piped As Water Is Today By MYRON M. STEARNS FROM the height of a great precipice two men looked down on a continuous stream of moving automobiles. Farther from the ground than the Palisades rise above the Hudson River at the highest point, they were on no natural crag. They were looking down from a window on the twentieth story of a New York hotel—not a fabulous building of a hundred years hence—but a matter-of-fact structure of today. Dinner was served in their room. The fish had traveled more than 6,000 miles to reach them— Alaska salmon. The steak came from a steer raised near the Mexican border, shipped a thousand miles to be "finished" by a special feeding, another five hundred miles to be dressed, and still another thousand miles in refrigerator cars to reach the metropolis. Fruit from Southern California, vegetables from Georgia, olives from Italy. And the eggs in the Mayonnaise dressing for the salad—no joking—were laid on the other side of the world, in China, nearly two years before. It was good Mayonnaise, too. There was a knock at the door.

Sixteen Needs Met by Ingenuity
  • With these shears you can clip grass without tiring the hands. A jointed bar connects the blades, which open and close as the up and down motion of the grips bends or straightens the joint
  • A cent in the slot, and in two minutes the "hair-curling automat," invented in Europe, electrically heats the attached iron. The hotel guest, aided by the mirror, does the rest
  • To remove a broken-headed screw, drill a hole in it, drive in the fluted end of this tool and twist the square end two or three times with a wrench
  • Hay is cut and delivered into a tube by this German machine. Air driven through the tube carries the hay to the loft and automatically stores it
What Lindbergh Found in His Mail Bag
Offers of Millions, Offers of Marriage and 14,000 Gifts in Packages Sent to Atlantic Flyer By FITZHUGH GREEN THROUGH the crowded events that followed the great flight to Paris, the author of this article was one of Col. Lindbergh's chief aides. And in the swift preparation of Lindbergh's book "We," he wrote several chapters describing the welcoming receptions which the modest aviator did not wish to write himself. Commander Green also aided in handling Lindbergh's huge mail. "Dear Lindy—" Those two words, with variations, have been written more than three and a half million times in the last four months by people of all races, colors and climes.

RCA Radiotron
From time to time other tubes will be offered to you as being "as good as Radiotrons," sometimes at a lower price. Which proves that the Radiotron is the acknowledged standard in performance. The American people have used millions of Radiotrons in the last five years. Is it reasonable to suppose that imitators could give you Radiotron quality for the same money?

Radio is better with Battery Power
At a turn of the dial a radio program comes to you. It is clear. It is true. It is natural. You thank the powers of nature that have once more brought quiet to the distant reaches of the radio-swept air. You are grateful to the broadcasters whose programs were never so enjoyable, so enchanting. You call down blessings upon the authority that has allotted to each station its proper place. And, if you are radio-wise, you will be thankful that you bought a new set of "B" batteries to make the most out of radio's newest and most glorious season.

The Conflict Between Science and Religion
A Discussion by Leaders in American Life, with an Introduction By BRUCE BARTON Author of "The Man Nobody Knows" and "The Book Nobody Knows" THE printing of these statements is a public service. It ought to bring us closer to the day when the absurd phrase "the conflict between science and religion" will be permanently in the discard. When theologians presume to prescribe the boundaries of truth they put themselves in the impossible position of most of their predecessors through the Middle Ages. When scientists presume to announce that man is merely material, coming from nothing and bound nowhere, and that the universe is a meaningless riddle, they are equally out of their depth.
