Corrigan's Remarkable Flight
"THE aviation world was stunned on Monday when
Douglas Corrigan, California airplane mechan
ic, landed in Dublin, Ireland, after a 28-hour flight
from New York, in a small plane, built in 1928,
and valued at $900.
Corrigan had just made a non-stop flight from
California to New York, and when he. took the air
again there with 320 gallons of gasoline, three
chocolate bars and a half gallon of water, it was
taken for granted that he was on his way back to
California. But he headed straight across the At
lantic and landed safely at Baldotinell airdrome,
. just outside of Dublin. His chocolate and water
were gone and he had only 30 gallons of gasoline
left in his tanks. He was practically broke and in a
strange land, but was cool and unworried.
Corrigan had no navigating instruments, no radio
and no safety equipment, but he took off from New
York as casually as if he had been boarding a
trolley car for the. suburbs.
The announcement of Corrigan's successful flight
in his little plane completely flabbergasted air com
merce officials in Washington, and one of them
said, "It ain't right."
. It is said that Corrigan may be fined and have
his license taken away by thq bureau of commerce,
''but if that is done, there will be such a howl as has
'(.seldom been heard in this country.
The young man did something that was extreme
"ily -dangerous and extremely foolish, but he im
periled no life but his own, and he realized his ambi
tion to make a solo flight across the Atlantic. He
.deserves commendation instead of punishment.
But, anyway, being broke and under' censure at
home will not matter in Ireland, for each one of the
'ten thousand Irish Corrigans will be. around look
ing for "Cousin Doug," and each will have an open
purse and a jug of usquebaugh.
Business Improvement Seen By News Review
ACCORDING to some of the1 experts, the upturn
:in the stock market was the result of a heavy,
sudden influx of foreign money into American se
curities. Foreign capital, so the story goes, took the
view that values were at extremely low levels, and
that the market was a real bargain counter. The
iwi ciii iniaiit-rdi invasion gave a surge oi commence
to American investors, who began buying. Then
the investment trusts, which had generally been out
of the market for some time, waiting for what
seemed the low point, stepped in arid the major rise
resulted. The gains have been generally held, with
only minor reactions.
Irrespective of the cause of the stock rise, there
are Some welcome signs on the business horizon to
indicate that it is justified by the position of com
merce and industry. The barometers have not gone
far ahead of their spring lows as yet. But the tang
ible and intangible factors affecting the late summer
and fall outlook are definitely, improving. There are
sound grounds for arguing that, even though noth
ing like a boom can be anticipated, the bottom has
been passed, and that the. last half of the'year will
be substantially better than the first.. The upward
trend,'in the view of most authorities, is due to start
in August after the traditional July shut-down in
various industries, notably the automobile, and to
continue at a slowly accelerating pace.
Biggest late industrial news was the price cut in
steel, initiated by U. S. Steel. This has resulted in
some new, orders, and. much heavier orders are an
ticipated. It is known that 'some industries have
been holding off buying steel because they believed

The world's youngest ordained minister, an eight-year-old Cleveland

Hoffman, twenty-three. The young clergyman Is pastor of the Foursquare
Gospel church and was ordained last July at the International Ministerial

that a price slash was an imminent possibility. Now
that he price slash has occurred these industries
are surveying their low inventories and again com-,
ing into the market. The cut, on finished steel, ac
cording to Iron Age, amounts to about 5l2 per cent.
Car-loadings remain at poor levels but there is
even an element of encouragement here, in that ever
. since the third week in April, says Business Week,
the rate of loss as compared with the year before
has steadily declined. Best improvement in car-loadings
has been in the field of merchandise shipments.
Electric power output is also tending Upward
again, in spite of the fact that houshold load de
clines in summer, which indicates a renewal of busi
ness activity in some quarters. Output is running
substantially under last year, but' is coming gradu
ally closer to that level.
The inventory situation remains favorable, espe
cially in consumers' goods lines. Most experts think
that inventories have just about touched lowest
possible point, and that buying will steadily im
prove. The outlook for buying in the heavy industry
field, on the other hand, is far less favorable.
Also of great significance is" what seems to be a
material improvement in the state of mind of some
business leaders who are gaining the opinion that
the cycle is due to start upward again for how
long, no one knows. And a considerable amount of.
capital is coming out of hiding.
Summing up, best guess is that activity will slow
ly improve, but that there will be no sharp upturns
in the production indices. No one believes we are on
the verge of a boom as wre were in 1936: Many be
lieve that progress will be consistently made but
that it will be hard, slow going, and that there is no
immediate prospect for regaining 1937 levels. Many
feel that security values have come up about as far
as they will for some time, and that they will hold
to about the current level. Industrial News Review.
ADVOCATES REPEAL OF
Editor Press :
Rabbits are entirely too numerous
in Macon county, and other coun
ties, for that matter. I have yet to
hear a farmer or gardener express
himself in favor of the law protect
ing rabbits. Certainly those who
suffer injuries from these pests are
the ones whose voices should be
heard and heeded.
Farmers do not desire to deprive
sportsmen of the pleasure of hunt
ing rabbits. Indeed, they regard
the rabbit hunter as a friend. With
out any law protecting rabbits they
were a nuisance. Since their hunt
ing "and killing have been restricted
they are becomming a menace.
I believe 90 per cent of the farm
ers of Macon county favor the re
peal of the rabbit law. Will you
kindly allow them to express them
selves in The Press ? Dewey Corbin,
what say you ? ;
Family Cow Should
Get Balanced Diet
The old family cow has taken a
lot of abuse in her time and kept
fon producing milk for her master,
! hut sh ran tn a mnrh hpttpr Job
when she gets enough of the right
things to eat.
A good cow not only cuts down
on the household food bill, but she
contributes much to the health and
general well-being of the family,
said John A. Arey, extension dairy
specialist at State college. She de
serves the best of feed and care.
A cow has a huge stomach and a
tremendous capacity for converting
feed into milk. On full feed, she
will use about half the nutrients in
her feed to maintain her own body
weight. The rest she converts into
milk and butterfat.
When her rations are cut down,
her milk production falls off, she
loses weight, and she goes dry
sooner than normal.' A cow will
often give milk when she really
needs to use the. full amount of a
scant -feed, supply to supply her
own body. . 1
In the course of a year, an aver-age-size
farm cow needs 18 bushels
of corn, 13 bushels of oats, 600
pounds of cottonseed meal, two
tons of hay, and one to two acres
of good pasture. The hay should be
of good quality, and the pasturage
should be a good growth, of grasses
or legumes. Winter pastures of rye
and crimson clover, or of wheat,
barley, oats, and crimson clover i
are good for supplementing the dry
feed. ; ..
Three or more different feeds,
say 500 pounds of corn meal, 300
pounds of cottonseed meal, and 200
pounds of ground oats or wheat
bran will make a good grain ration.
Give a cow all the roughage she
will eat and allow three quarts of
grain per day for each gallon of
milk she gives.
