Many Instruments Needed
for Fighting Planes.
Before an airplane can be put into
Military service it must be equipped
with at least nine delicate aeronautic
instruments, some of which are abso
lutely essential to exact flying, and all
•Mitribute to the successful operation
ct a plane. One gives the pilot his
location as to height and direction;
others tell his speed through 'he air,
the speed of his propeller, the amount
of gasoline carried, water t~mpera
ture, operation of the oiling system,
and guide his "banking" on turns.
Another necessary article is the oxy
gen-supplying appartus without which 1
an aviator could not climb to any
For operation of actual corouat
planes, such as observing, photograph
ing, bombing, and fighting plant-,
other complicated and expensive in
struments and sets of appartus are,
Kecessary. Among them a-e machine J
guns, gun mounts, bomb rn'-ks, bcmb- 1
dropping devices, bom'i sights, radio

These bring the total cost of equip
ment for an airplane to several thous

plication to the Food Administration
at Raleigh for blank* upon which to
make detailed iwoni statement of the
quantities of sugar they used last
year. Upon satisfying itself that
this statement is correct the Food Ad
ministration will determine the al
lotment of sugar which such applicant
will he allowed to have and will issue
to him certificates for the quantity.
The blanks for statement by mer
chants have already been printed ami
can be secured upon application to the
Sugar Distribution Division of the
Food Administration at Raleigh.
Food Administrator Page has an
nounced that any violations of the new
rules and regulations governing the
sales of sugar will be dealt with pro
mptly and drastically; and about the
best that any dealer or user of sugar
can expect if they violate the law is
to be put out of business during the
period of th« war. All (ugar refiners,
hrakera, jobbers and retailer* are sub
ject to the new rules.
The new plan of "rationing" manu
facturers using sugar will in no wise
affect the present ruling of the Food
Administration governing retail sales
of sugar to consumers or the sale of
sugar to individuals who have a legi
timate demand for it for canning and
preserving purposes. The whole plan
is designed to assure a sufficient sup
ply for these purposes and it is the
non-essentials or less essential indus
tries which have to get along with re
