J A GREEN-HEADED IDEA f (Continued from Page 4, Column 3) equator receives from the sun, or would receive if there were no clouds or atmosphere, .00194 calories a min- ute. .At the latitude of Washington and sea level, a square centimeter re- ceives in the course of a year only about 152 calories. Accordingly the solar expert to whom I referred the question concludes :- "For your requirements of al)l)roxi- ms(ely a million calories a year, the diameter of yotlr head would have to be inerease(t between five and six fold, in order to receive enough energy from the sun to sustain your mental and physical operations, an(t you would have to sit out in the sun all (lay long, every (lay in the 5'ear. These figures take account of the losses in the at- mosphere and the obliquity of the rays, so you could hold your head up straight and not have to turn it around like a sunflower, as you sug- gest." 1 do not easily give up an idea, so [ measured my back and calculated its area, only to lind that this, however well sodded, would not be a third large enough. Worse still 1 found that the green leaves are shockingly inefficient transformers of energy. They store tip in the form of combustible or edible products only about one l)ercent of the radiant energy they get from the sun- shine. It would then take some three htm(lred mossbacks, working full time, to provide my necessary nutriment. So I have been forced to admit that my scheme is impracticable, at least in 66 SOME ON ,99 CONFECTIONERY Corner Crescent and Catalina Avenues C. C.

HODSON, Manager its original form, but my figuring- has the stronger confirmed my belief that some way might be found to make use of solar radiation for hunlan purlloses, 9 SAN[IWII]H PALACE without wasting nlore than ninety-nine CHAHLEY' l)ercent of it, as is done by emldoving plants as intermediaries. An area of twenty square feet in latitnde 38 de- grees and at sea level, receives energy enough through the year, counting all the (lays as sunny, to give one horse- power continuously. If the weather is half cloudy forty square feet would amount to one horsepower. This means that taking the country, through each acre of land is getting more than a thousand horsepower, and each square mile more than a half a million horse- j" ) power of free energy from the sun, / l and yet we make no use of it except such infinitesimal fraction as may be converted into food or fuel by vegeta- tion, or may raise water to the clouds to come down as rain and perchance to be caught bv a water-mill, or may stir up the atmosphere to be used in running a few scattered windmills. It does seem to me that we might use a little more of this wasted wealth than we do. But the problem is too big for nay head to solve. Another fine schooner yacht has been added to the rapidly growing Southern California fleet. Cliff Durant is the owner of the new" craft, which sailed down from San Francisco bay in two and a half dav~. It has been christened Aurora, and it is said will be a strong contender in the next race to Honolulu. "Keep Avalon a Spotless Town."
