HAROLD GAUER
ROBERT BLOCH
ANEW mayor is elected. The photographers clamor for pictures. Pushing against the crowds and standing on chairs, the news hounds swing their cameras. Amid the popping of flashbulbs a newcomer has stolen the show and become front page news.

Spying with a CAMERA
Photography has become the strong right arm of the espionage agent. Here is the amazing story of how cameras have stolen vital secrets.
[no value]
[no value]
ALFRED TOOMBS
THE camera has changed espionage methods since the World War, 19141918, and made every country more vulnerable. Today's spies have found it singularly adapted to their ends. They have built tiny cameras into cigars, canes, and buttonholes; have used cameras to make pictures in total darkness or from great distances.

MY FAVORITE PICTURE

MAX B. THOREK
EVERY photograph should have a reason for being. The ones from which I derive the greatest pleasure are the results of thought, of emotions given freedom, of a symbolic, planned portrayal of a larger theme. Even without choosing sides in the conflicts in Europe today, all of us are stirred by the pathos of that continent—its tragedy, futile bravery, and equally futile cowardice.

THOMAS P♦ LAKE
VACATION days fly all too fast, but you can capture them forever if you take pictures along the way. Why not borrow the log book idea from the mariner, and make a photographic record that will preserve the highlights of your outing this summer?

ARNO B. CAMMERER
OUR National Parks—vast areas of beauty unsurpassed anywhere else in the world—are magnets which annually attract thousands of photographers, anxious to capture on film the natural splendor they offer. So many cameramen have visited them, particularly during the last few years, that the National Parks Service now provides special aids to help the tourist take good pictures.

BOB HURST
I CAN recall, though not without a slight shudder, some of my early beach pictures. Like the bride’s first biscuits, they were certainly some kind of a burnt offering. Every particle of detail was scorched out of the highlights and the shadows were impenetrable blobs of inky black.

WHETHER you like to take your vacations reclining in a deck chair aboard a steamer or prefer to rough it in rugged country, a trip to Alaska will offer you unlimited picture possibilities.

Joseph Costa
WHEN a news story and you can't cover it on the ground, shoot it from the air. That is the rule by which the New York Daily News operates its aerial photography department—and it pays big dividends in spectacular news pictures that could not be obtained in any other way.

ALEX EVELOVE
PHOTOGRAPHY IS not all lenses, papers, films, and formulas. Getting along well with people is also an important part of it. If you combine good camera manners with your photographic skill, you will enjoy pleasant relationships with the persons with whom you come in contact and be able to get better pictures too.

PUTTING INFRARED TO USE
Few people are aware of the practical applications of infrared photography in commerce, medicine, criminology, and several other fields. Here's the story.

DR. WALTER CLARK
THE rather highly specialized uses of infrared photography in scientific research have been publicized to some degree. It is permissible to assume, however, that the public is more interested in those things which affect its own well-being at the moment than in those which may provide a basis for the better existence of its great-grandchildren.

PAUL W. GARTNER
THE photographing a of wild life long ago became a sport in itself. The cautious stalking, essential to making a picture of a big game animal in its native haunts, or the fast shooting, which successfully records the sudden flight of a waterfowl, constitute problems to test the alertness and woodcraft of any sportsman.

TOURING around the country, as many of you are doing this summer, you’re apt to visit at least one of the subterranean show-places to be found in various parts of America. Among the more famous of these (to mention a few) are Mammoth Cave, in Kentucky; the Luray Caverns, in Virginia; Carlsbad Cavern, in New Mexico; the caverns at Grant’s Pass, Oregon; Lewis and Clark Cavern, in Montana; Shoshone Cavern, in Wyoming; the Jewel Caves of South Dakota; and California’s Lassen Volcanic Park with its “lava tubes.”

BEATRICE S. BLATNER
LAST summer when my husband and I decided to tour the west we were determined to take good pictures of our trip. On a previous vacation along the eastern seaboard we had considerable trouble with our 35 mm negatives. We seldom stayed in one place long enough to have them developed; and when we did, the results were discouraging.

Frank P. Murphy
FEW camera fans realize that the darkroom is a source of danger, particularly to the small child, because of lethal chemicals contained therein and the childish propensity for investigation and experiment. It is true that many of the chemical agents found in the darkroom are not deadly poisons, but a goodly number of them are fatal in small or reasonably small doses.

In photographing garden subjects, such as single plants or small patches of flowers, a piece of black velvet makes an excellent background. It enables the flowers or plants to stand out against it very effectively. —When you need a tripod screw in a hurry, always remember that a ¼" stove bolt with a standard thread fits American tripod sockets perfectly.

VERY often when you go to straighten some badly curled prints by means of drawing them over a straight edge the prints will have become so dry that the emulsion cracks during the straightening process. I find that placing such prints ' in an electric refrigerator for an hour or two restores enough moisture so that the prints may be straightened without dan: ger of cracking the emulsion.

E. H. L., Wilmette, III. The plano-convex lens in my spotlight got broken accidentally, and I am wondering whether I can replace it satisfactoritly with a double convex reading glass lens of the same diameter. Please advise. ANSWER: The double convex lens will have a focal length double that of a plano-convex lens of the same diameter.

Dear Sir : In your June edition... in the Letters to the Editor section you state that “production and processing problems” of 2¼x 2¼ Kodachrome “make it impractical at present.” Early last fall I received a letter from the Service Department of Eastman Kodak which said that due to an increase of size in the plant “you may expect Kodachrome in roll film sizes in a year or so.”

BECAUSE of its top - heaviness, a clamp-on lighting reflector frequently will not stay put when attached to a rounded support of comparatively small diameter, such as a lamp base, coat-tree, chair-rung, waterpipe, etc. A lead pencil or some similar object will overcome this difficulty very easily, as shown in the accompanying photograph.

This is difficult to do in many of the more congested areas, unless you’re willThere is a fairly simple way of doing the job by daylight, however, and although hundreds of cars may pass the lens of your camera while you’re making the shot, not one of them needs to appear in the picture. The two photographs which accompany this article were taken from the same location and within a few minutes of each other. Yet in one we see a stream of autos, while no traffic whatsoever is noticed in the other. ing to wait and take your chances with an exposure by moonlight.

Emergency Print-Washing

[no value]
Duane Featherstonhaugh
ALTHOUGH it is not a good idea to wash prints for less than half an hour at the minimum, it is sometimes necessary to do so in an emergency. At such times prints should be washed in luke-warm rather than cold water, the warmer water tending to eliminate hypo from the print more quickly than water drawn directly from the cold water faucet.

TO eliminate the tedious task of mixing photographic stock solutions with a stirring rod, pour the necessary chemicals and water, as directed, into a large glass jug. A few vigorous shakes of the jug will mix the solution thoroughly. If you’re mixing a gallon of solution, and your jug’s capacity is 1 gallon, do not put in all of the required water at first, but leave some space in which to slosh the mixture around.

HERE is a simple gadget to aid in trimming prints with uniform white margins all around. It can be set as needed and removed from the trimmer instantly if not required. Simply take an ordinary celluloid triangle (such as artists and draughtsmen use), place the short edge against the ruler which is attached to the edge of the trimming board, and set the guide edge back from the knife for the width of margin desired.

ASIMPLE means of making a test strip of four different exposures on a single piece of enlarging paper is to take a sheet of heavy black paper and cut a circular aperture in it. Next, fasten this mask in place on the enlarging easel, by means of thumbtacks or tape along the two outer edges.

Arthur J. Freda
IT is very important for those using flash synchronizers to make sure that the batteries are sufficiently fresh to do a good job. Unless some regular means of making such a check-up is devised there is a distinct danger of using the batteries long after they should have been discarded.

E. R. Winterle
AFTER making several enlargements with my enlarger (which has a set of glass plates in an adjustable-mask negative carrier), I found that the negatives would curl immediately when placed on the warm glass plates. This prevented me from properly masking or centering the negatives in the carrier.

ON several occasions I have found that an excellent emergency tripod can be improvised from three sticks of equal length and an empty tin can. Simply spread out the sticks like the legs of any tripod and slip the can over the upper ends of the sticks.

Gordon Bedford
IF you’ve stopped using your camera because the bellows or box leaks light, or because the fabric in the focal plane shutter is full of pinholes, don’t despair. With a little patience, an investment of ten or fifteen cents, and the use of a few simple accessories available in any ordinary household, you can make your old bellows or your cloth shutter as good as new from the standpoint of efficiency.
