"OCEAN OF AIR"
Navigation Lanes May Differ
From Day to Day, Says Gov
DATA MUST BEGATHERED
Meteorologists Should Decide, After
Study of Air Conditions, What
Route and Altitude a Plane
Washington, D. C.The "ocean of
air" which followers of-aviation be
lieve some day will be filled with great
air liners, plying their way on regular
schedules, must be studied from a me
teorological standpoint and the whims
and fancies of the element must be
reduced to easily understood data be
fore the dream of world-wide com
mercial aviation can become a reality,
according to C. LeRoy Meisinger, gov
ernment meteorologist here.
Mr. Meisinger in a paper discussing
the effect of air conditions on commer
cial aviation says that meteorology is
the mainstay of*aviation, regardless of
the confidence a pilot may have in his
motor and in his plane.
The "ocean of air," he says, con
stantly is changing and does not con
tain steadfast currents, such as the
Gulf stream and the Japan current,
which are found in oceans of water.
Must Gather Data.
Because of the constantly changing
condition of the aerial routes through
which the air liners of the future
would travel Mr. Meisinger declares
before big commercial aviation com
panies can operate on a large scale,
great masses of data on air conditions
at all times of the year, in all places
and all circumstances must be gath
ered. He suggests placing consulting
meteorologists on the staffs of all
aviation companies to study the air as
it affects aviation and to decide daily
what altitude and what route a plane
should take from one city to another.
Air conditions are so changeable,
Mr. Meisinger says, that a plane trav
eling between the same two points
might have to take a different route
almost every day in order to make
the trip with the least danger. Also,
a plane flying from New York to Chi
cago might find a certain route the
best, while one traveling from Chicago
to New York on the same day might
find an entirely different route more
Things to Consider.
Some of the things which airplane
dispatchers will have to consider, he
says, are the speed and direction of
the wind in the area to be traversed,
the frequency of low clouds and fog,
the frequency and intensity of thunder
storms, the vertical temperature dis
tribution, the normal values of pre
cipitation at flying fields and the effect
of atmospheric pressure on aerial in
struments, particularly the altimeter.
The changing conditions in the air
make it impossible to gather the nec
essary information in a single path
finding flight over an area, he con
tinues, but by gathering data in nu
merous flights at all times of the year
and in all circumstances a system of
averages could be devised which would
aid greatly in dispatching planes.

by Marshal Foch. A feature of the
affair whose objects, it is stated, are

he continued, "it is still true that his

Philadelphia.Tox4~ smoke candles,
recently developed, will have an ex
tensive use in future wars, in the opin
ion of L. I. Shaw of the internal bu
reau of mines, who recently spoke on
"Smoke and Incendiary Material" be
fore the Franklin institute.
"Smoke candles, so called," he said,
"are small cylindrical boxes which are
ignited by some sort of friction de

candle which was satisfactory, but
which did not get into production and

The smoke is normally white, must
have maximum capacity and .be cool
enough to prevent the setting up of
air currents and thus rise from the
ground. It must be heavy so as to be
displaced by the minimum amount of
wind at low velocity. These require

"As regards the future of incendiary
material, my own opinion, which opin

least some of the military critics, is
that incendiary material, except for
small arms and long range shell and
drop bombs, will have at least a Iim

projectors will probably never be used
in a future war. Smoke material, on
the other hand, will have a very exten

New Use of Smoke.
There was in progress of develop

is obtained in such a state of division

Such toxic smokes, of which there will
probably be others developed, will find
a very extensive use in the future. -It

DRIVE ON SPARROWS
700,000 of the Pests Are Killed
State-Wide Campaign Results in Sav
ing of More Than $100,000 for
Washington.Seven hundred thou
sand English sparrows^each eating six
quarts of wheat a year, would mean a
feed bill of more than $13L000. There
fore the killing of 700,000 English spar
rows means that amount of money
saved for the farmers concerned. And
nearly 700,000 sparows were killed in
a state-wide campaign in which 783
Utah farmers joined forces to get rid
of the pests during the winter months.
County agents helped in the cam
paign, which used 5,243 pounds of poi
soned bait. In most cases the bait
was made of wheat, poisoned with
strychnine in accordance with a recipe
sent out by the biological survey of the
United States department of agricul
ture. It was put up in one-quarter
pound paper bags in the county
agent's office. Full instructions were
printed on the bags for the use of the
poison. Each co-operator receiving the
bait agreed to report on the results.
Usually the sparrows were entjieed for
a few days by putting unpoisoned bait
in places not frequented by other birds
and also inaccesbible to the poultry of
the farm. Then a few grains of poi
soned wheat were put out each day.
The dead sparrows were gathered up,
counted, and either burned or buried
every few days to prevent the sparrow
population from becoming suspicious.
The number of sparrows counted by
each farmer was reported to the com
mitteemen or the county agent at the
end of the season.
As many as 240 dead sparrows were
gathered up as the result of a single
package of poisoned wheat. It is be
lieved that where care was used in
placing the poisoned bait an average
of 75 sparrows were killed with each
one-quarter-pound package. In each
of several counties 50,000 to 100,000
sparrows were destroyed.
