Say's Navy Cannot Continue Costly
Searches for Foolish Flyers.
Charlotte, N. CL, Hept. 10.—Govern
mental regulation* of trans-oceanic
or other long distance flying was de
clared essential tonight by Curtis D.
Wilbur, Secretary of the. Navy, if
human life is to be safeguarded and
any constructive stimulus given to the
science of n,viation.
Secretary Wilbur, en route to Wash
ington after an inspection of the PacK ;
tic fleet, was interviewed at th. Dome
of Stuart Cramer, at Oramerron. tex
tile manufacturer and fo«mei* class
mate at Annapolis, where he is a
visitor. He plans to leave Monday
for the capital.
General unpreparedness and inade
quate equipment for harzardous flights,
which place human life in jeopardy
and can, even if successful, contribute'
little or nothing to aerial science, were
referred t* by Secretary Wilbur as
cause to warrant governmental
supervision of details of such adven
One procedure, he suggested, would
be for a properly constituted board
to refuse both governmental sanction
and passports to any person deemed,
on examination, unqualified to under
take an oceanic flight.
“The Navy cannot continue,”
“searching for victims of ‘stunt’ flights
which culminate in distress at sea”
adding that inasmuch as public money
was involved in such searches, it was
but natural and proper that govern
mental regulation should be applied
to the matter the same as in other
FLOOD CONTROL WORK
TO BE STOPPED SOON
Comptroller General McCarl Refuses
Appropriation to Carry Out the
Memphis, Tenn., Sept. 10. —Flood
control work in the Mississippi valley
received a setback today with the
decision of Comptroller General Mc-
Carl refusing to divert to the war
department a' $2,000,000 rivers and
harbors appropriation surplus for that
While contracts for the closing of
crevasses have been let, it was pointed
out by Major Donald H. Connolly,
United States engineer in charge of
the first and second riyer districts,
that had the additional funds become
available, this work could have been
completed sooner. All working time
between now and the neit flood season
is needed in taking precautions against
high water, it was explained.
A favorable decision by Mr. McCarl,
engineers said, would have enabled
them to put in revetment work at
places where the caving river banks
are getting dangerously close to the
levee. * .
It will be necessary now, in Major
Connolly’s opinion, to “take a chance”
on the caving not progressing fast
enough to destory the levee before
there'are funds and time for the work.
INJURIES HIT TAR HEEL CAMP.
Four Men Listed as “Cripples” at
Training Camp of Carolina Eleven.
Chapel Hill, Sept. 10.—The Univer
sity of North Carolina football mentors
had planned a scrimmage for their
proteges this afternoo, but the heavy
rains of last night left the field so
soggy that the scrimmage was post
poned. Instead, the Tar Heels went
through a strenuous session in the
morning, with the backs and ends
getting a taste of scrimmage work.
Then this afternoon the coaches light
ened the work and had the men in
track togs again for further drill in
fundamentals. . .

srfD were unreported this morning,
more than 40 hours after leaving the
Ford Airport here Saturday afternoon,
and officials of the -event, were inclined

ed seen last night in the Carolinas and
five had reported safe landings.
Norman B. Conger, chief of the
U. S. Weather Bureau here, reported
that the wind continued in a general
southeasterly direction. This would
sweep the balloons seen in the Caro
liuas toward the seaboard, it was be

able to find winds which would con
tinue to blow them over the land,
it was expected they would bring
their air-journey to an end somewhere
near Cape Sable, Florida.

safe landings, the Wallonie Belgian

his aide, Lieutenant Earickson, told
of being suddenly lifted to great
heights by vertical air currents. They
had dropped their radio set by means
of a parachute at Lenoir, at 2:30

adverse air current caught them and
was carrying them back toward De

Cotton Crop This Year
The Tribune Buurea*
H‘.r Walter Hotel
Raleigh, Sept. .12.—Will the prfco
of cotton, now at such a favorable
peak, remain at this p<tak, or will it
decline as a result of the rush that
will be made in many quarters to
Vealize on this increase in price? And
what affect, if any, will this ruse have
on the various cotton co-operative as
As was expected, of course, the
price has already fallen off some from
the high level reached following the
announcement of the government crop
forecast. But state marketing ex
perts believe th«r for the most part
cotton prices are going to stay up
with a good chance for them to go
even higher later on.
“As far as the North Carolina crop
is concerned right now,” said George
Ross, chief of the division of mar
kets, state department of agriculture,
“not much a is being sold at pres

Gastonia, Sept. 10. —Prohibition
Agent Evon L. Houser, assisted by

and Chief of Police Erwin Allen, of
Kings Mountain, made a raid in th-*
wilds of the Kings Mountain battle
field, Cleveland county, which netted
two of the largest stills ever captur
ed in. this section of the state.
The stills were within a quarter of
a mile of each other and there was n
path leading from one to the other,
this fact leading the raiders t<v be
lieve that both outfits were the prop
erty of the same individual or gang.
No arrests were made and, as yet, the
agents, have no clues as to who tne

It could not be ascertained who
owns the, property on which they
were located. They were found in a
section of the Kings Mountain region
which is wild and uninhabited.
One of the stills was warm and had
evidently been operated up to a very
short time before the officers arrived.
Both stills were destroyed as it would
have been an almost impossible task
to get them out and bring them to
town. Three hundred gallons of beer
was also destroyed.
A few miles east of the site of
these two stills the party made an
other raid, capturing a 60-gallon
Rtill in the Surraw Springs section,
It destroyed with 150 gallons
of beer and several sacks of meal. No
arrests were made and it was im
possible to find out who is owner of
the land on which it was found.
Southern Railway to Display Mineral

Washington, D. C., Sept. 12.—Dur

ern Railway System will have on dis
play at the Eleventh Exposition *r
Chemical Industries, in the Grand
Central Palace, New York, the most
comprehensive exhibit of the chemical
and mineral resources of the South
that has ver been made.
In preparing this exhibit great
care has been taken to include om.v
specimens of minerals from deposits
which are available for development
and which are so located with refer
ence to transportation as to make
their development practicable. The
exhibit will occupy four booths in the
Exposition and will be sa arranged
as to group together all of the speci
mens from different deposits of tha
same mineral, thus facilitating com
parative study. The specimens shown
will present a complete picture of
the great and ' varied mineral re
sources of the territory served by
Southern Railway System lines.
The Exposition will attract many
thousands of visitors who are .in
terested in the chemical and allied
industries and the Southern Railway
exhibit expected to result in in
teresting some of the important
chemical and metalurgieal industries
of the United States in making de

'New York Makes New Mark by Lick
New York, Sept. 10.—The Yankees
defeated the Browns for the 21st time
“this season by 1 to 0 today, Wiley
Moore gaining an edge on Stewart in
a pitcher’s battle. The lone run was
scored by Meusel in the eighth on his
double and successive sacrifices by
Lazzeri Gazella. Earl Combs’
single made him the first American
, leaguer to record 200 hits this season.
The New Yorkers established a new
American league record for victories
from one club in a season by winning
21times from St. Louis. The former
mark was held by the Red Sox who
won 20 out of-22 from St. Louis in
1911. The Yanks tied the National

estimates made before the government
estimate had very closely approximat
the government figures. The pres
ent high prices may occasion some
dumping on the part of owners , who
are anxious to realize at the present
peak, and this will probably cause a
temporary slump. ,
That farmers in some sections will
be encouraged to sell their cotton as
quickly as possible now while prices
are strong in order to get some ready
cash appears likely in the face of the
fact that they have been ruhning on
credit for many months. It is also
likely that mapy of the bankers and
supply merchants will urge them to dd
this, so that the hanks may be able
to liquidate some of the paper which
they have been carrying.
However, it ie generally believed
that the majority of the thinking
farmers will see the wisdom of mar
keting their cotton slowly, and thus
keep the market from being flooded,
and keep prices from falling.
It was pointed out by Mr. Web
ster that the cotton co-operatives this
year have an optional pool in which
mejnber§ may place their cotton with
insti notions to hold it and sell only
on the instruction* of the individual
owners. This plan will enable the
members to deliver the cotton to the
co-operatives as fgst as they may de
sire, where it will be held until such
a time as the owners may desire to
Although It U still too early to tell
definitely about the crop on the basis
of the first Crop estimate, it is felt
that the October and November re
ports will adhere pretty close to the
September estimate, unless adverse
weather conditions between now and
October first may serve to reduce the
estimate, in which case the crop
would be still shorter than already
On the whole, those familiar with
the situation feel that cotton prices
will remain firm, with an eventua 1
possibility of still greater advances.
