‘Mum’ Visits in Chicago
To S* Ont of ‘Her’ Boys
CHlCAGO.—Chicago had a dis

76-year-oid lady from London,
England. Her name is Mrs. Ade
Mrs. Gilbert, known to thousands
of America service men whom she
befriended during the war, was in
Chicago to visit one of “her” boys.
She was the guest of Mr. and Mrs.
Edvin Kodat, whose son, Leßoy,
23, once enjoyed Mrs. Gilbert’s hos
pitality in England during the war.
The tiny, sprightly little woman
opened her house to servicemen.

CINCINNATI, OHIO.—Way out
in a cornfield near Burlington, Ky.,
lives Frank Sinton Milburn, whose
claim to distinction is that he oper
ates one of the most unusual plants
in all the Middle West, This is true
for many reasons, but probably for
the chief reason that Milburn is
the sole worker in the plant.
The building which houses the
industry has a puzzling collection
of complex tools and machinery,
dies, jigs and other items. It does
practically no manufacturing, this
strange industry—in fact the less
production required, the better Mr.
Milburn likes it.
It is difficult to describe the
operation as a business; it is more
like a profitable hobby.
Milburn likes engineering prob
lems, so he has found his occupa
tion in solving the problems of big
and little people who want help.
Helps Other People
For 15 years now, Milburn hat
been wrestling with other people’s
problems. He has his shop at Bur
lington because he likes the sollr
tude; he sympathizes with folk!
who have to work in downtown Cin
His business, essentially, is to
take on the engineering of ideas oI
His contact media are two-line
classified sds fax such magazines
as Popular Mechanics. These bring
in problems front all aorta of in
ventors. And they are interesting
stories he f eti - .
'““I have been more rat traps and
qombinatiop salt and- pepper shak
ers than anybody in the .world,” he
observed with a broad grin.
About 80 per cent of the inquiries
are of questionable usefulness, but
the other 20 per cent contains use
ful and potentially worth-while
ideas for new products, or improve
ments of existing products.
He was in earnest when he
pondered the sad plight of many
worth-while items or gadgets. The
inventor may hive a practical idea;
Milburn may be. able to engineer
the product satisfactorily for pro
duction; but the inventor generally
is without the medium for bringing
it before the public.
‘Tf we Could put across the Ideas

Needs Many Tools
Hence; the business is principal
ly an engineering one. This requires
a multitude of tools, dies, jigs and
fixtures. But even in this field, the
business is different from the engi
neering firms which function as
service units to large business con
Milburn is conscious of the lim
ited resources of the people who
come to him with ideas. So he uses
all sorts of mechanical improviza
tions to hold costs to a minimum.
Yet, all his customers are not
individual inventors. He has done
some rare precision work for
a watch oompany to facilitate that
company’s wartime production of
precision measuring instruments.
He has a rare assortment of watch
makers’ tools and jigs. He did con
siderable engineering and produc
tion on a tiny item that went into
aircraft engines built by Wright
aeronautical corp. And he answers
the call of many manufacturing
companies around the country for
special engineering work.
Boy Catches 3-Pound Ban

. . . but the story speaks for it
Buddy Owens, 14-year-old Fort
Thomas youth, has accomplished
something: ithat- many anglers

and often never succeed. Buddy

The youth said he awakened
early and left his home to caddy
at the near-by Highland country
club. Upon passing the Covington
waterworks, which is adjacent to
Alexandria pike in Fort Thomas,
Buddy noticed something splashing
in the water.
After scrambling over the fence.
Buddy saw a large fish swimming
in circles. He waded cautiously into
the water, came upon the fish
from behind and tossed it upon the
The fish was more than 18 inches
long and weighed more than three
pounds, Mrs. Owens reported. It
was impossible to check the evi
dence, however, since Mrs. Owens
confessed that the family had eaten
the fish for dinner.
The fish probably had come out
of the Ohio river, been sucked up
into the intake pipes and trans
ported to the settling basin of the
waterworks. Whether it had been
brought in when smaller or had
arrived recently was not deter
At any rate, Owen Owens Jr.,
father of Buddy, said he had fished

good spots and had yet to catch a
