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 turous enterprises. 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 activities. FLOOD CONTROL WORK TO BE STOPPED SOON Comptroller General McCarl Refuses Appropriation to Carry Out the Program. 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 purpose. 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. . . As the first week of practice closes, the Carolina hospital list shows four names. George McDaniel, regular end last year, suffered a cut over the eye in today’s practice hut will not be out of all the workouts.

FOUR BALLOONS IN BENNETT RACE ARE STILL UP IN SOOTH No Reports Had Been Re ceived From Them This Morning and Officials Think They Are in Air. FIVE REPORTED SAFE LANDINGS Winds Still Blowing to the Southeast and This May Carry Ships Still in Au to Atlantic Ocean. Sept. 12.— UP) —Four of the 15 balloons entered in the Gordon B«**«*tt International Trophy race srfD were unreported this morning, more than 40 hours after leaving the Ford Airport here Saturday afternoon, and officials of the -event, were inclined t to believe that all the bags still were in the air. Three others were report 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 lieved. Unless the pilots have been 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. Os the ballons which have reported safe landings, the Wallonie Belgian entry, piloted by Lieutenant Phillippe Quersin and Lieutenant Maurice Hieis, was believed to have made the best distance. / The Wallonie landed at S. C. The Brandeburg, German balloon piloted by Dr. Rein holdt Halben apd Hugo, Kaulen, Jr., made the shortest flight, having been forced down on Sugar Island in Lake Erie, four hours after the flight, when the gas valves failed to function properly. The other balloons landed wer« the Helvetia, Swiss entry, at Statesville, N. C.; the Paris Bruxelles, French entry, at Dunn, N. C.; and the Army at York, S. C.; Belgica, Belgian, at Newberry, S. C.; and the Bee, British, at Randolph, Va. i Van Orman Still Going. Anderson, S. C., Sept. 12. — UP)— The balloon Goodyear VI, piloted by Wade T. Van Orman, winner of last year’s Gordon Bennet cup rice, passed over Belton at 8 :35 o’clock this morn ing, headed south, at a good rate of speed. The ballon was about 6,000 feet in the air, but residents of Bel ton said the marketings could be as certained. Unidentified Balloon at Greenwood. Greenwood t S. C., Sept. 12.— UP) — An unidentified white ballon flying at a great height passed over Ninety Six, near here, today at noon. It came from the direction of Columbia, and was going due west. Leave for Detroit. Dunn, N. C., Sept. 12.— UP) —Re- freshed by a-long night’s rest, Maurice Biename and A. Pennstra, in charge of the French balloon, Paris Bruxelles, which landed near here late Sunday, boarded a train this morning and headed toward Detroit. The balloonists were in the air for nearly 25 hours before Pilot Biename decided to descend three miles south of Dunn. FOUR BIG BALLOONS LAND IN CAROLINAS French Entry Comes Down Near Dunn While Swiss Bag Lands In Iredell. Charlotte, Sept. 11.—Reporting a journey fraught with the dangers of thunderstorms, sudden ascents to great heights and telling of spending the night high above the clouds in bright moonilght, four of the 15 entries in the Gorden Bennett international balloon race tonight had landed in North Carolina and South Carolina. The first three balloons ldnded —the United States army, the Paris-Brux elles, French, and the Wallonie, Bel gian, traveled approximately 525 miles from Detroit from where they started late yesterday. The Helvetia, Swiss entry, traveled about 450 miles. The United States army, piloted by Captain W. E. Kepner, was the first reported landing, having come down f in the outskirts of York, S. C., at 7 p. m. a few miles south of the North Carolina line. Captain Kepner and 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 p. • m. and landed only because an adverse air current caught them and was carrying them back toward De troit. The Paris-Bruxqeles, piloted by M. Maurice Bienamejwwith A. Veenstra as aide, landed n£ar Dunn, a small town in the eastern sectidh of the state, at 5:50 o’clock this afternoon after exhausing their ballast. The Wallonie, piloted by H. Quen sin with M. Theis as aide, came down six miles south of Greenville, S. C., at 7:30 o’clock with ballast exhausted The Hispania passed over Gaffney, S. C., at 6 p. m. traveling in the general direction of Charleston and at a height of 4,000 feet. The Italian entry, Dux, and the Spanish entry, Hispania, known to have passed over North Carolina and into ffouth Carolina, were still going stoftf and toward the south when last reported. The Dux was identified by an aviator who ascended at Spar tanburg to a height of 4,000 feet to get her markings. She was traveling at a height of approximately 6,000 feet but later reports to Spartanburg indicated that the Dux had begun to descend and the last report was that she was within 1,000 feet of thf ground. CONCORD..N.C., MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, Vhat Will Be Fate Os the 1 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 sociations? 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 ent because •+* little has been picked yet. Hence there is no dumping of this year’s crop at present, and indi cations are that many of The grow ers nr*i going to market their cotton slowly, in order to get the beet prices possible.” When the fact was mentioned that many trucks and wagons ar*> tn be seen hauling hales of cotiou to mar ket, it was said that moat of this is last year’s cotton and that the farmers are using their hu&ds in sell ing their last year’s which they have carried over, now, and use the money they receive for this to » nable them to carry their new crop, and finance themselves in the meantime. That present prices will have little effect on the co-operative associa tions, other than mean more profit for the members, is the opinion of F. B. Webster, assistant general manager of the Cotton Growers’ Co-operative Association here. The rise in prices following the United States crop re port was not unexpected, since private HUGE STILLS SEIZED WHERE PATRIOTS DU Dry Raiders Strike Blows at Bm Trade on Kings Mountain Battle field Baffled'For Clues of Owners. Gastonia, Sept. 10. —Prohibition Agent Evon L. Houser, assisted by Policeman Adam Hord, of Gastonia, 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 owners and operators of the still were. 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, Gaston county. 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 Wealth of South at Chemical Show. Washington, D. C., Sept. 12.—Dur ing the week of September 26, South 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 velopments in the South. 'New York Makes New Mark by Lick ing Browns. 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 league record held by the Cubs who defeated Boston 21 out of 22 games in 1909. If the chairs are bright green and there are freak pictures on the wall, it’s a tea room instead of a restaur ant. —Buffalo News- 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 sell. 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 indicated. On the whole, those familiar with the situation feel that cotton prices will remain firm, with an eventua 1 possibility of still greater advances.

Paris, Sept. 10.—The scarcity of bathtubs in most of France is often the subject of jokes, but < Sarcastic critics have a new fact to give sub stance to their humor. In the town of Bedarieux, near th* southern eoast, are 7,000 people with very few tubs: A forward-look ing gentleman transformed a villa into a public bathhouse, in a spirit of civic pride, relying upon promises of a good subscription list. Ho set out to get the wealthy to buy season tickets good for a bath a week. He finally got 3 to agree to take a bath a month for n year. After the first few weeks, according to reports of the enterprise, the subscribers reverted to primitive ideas of hygiene and demanded part of their tickets to be taken up. “A bath a month is too often; oner every three months is enough,” they are quoted as skying. , The bathhouse finally closed its doors, unable to make a go of the bathing business, although there wan no competition.
