Officials of the Aero Club of America
expressed themselves ns disappointed
with the effort to get the Vi,r Depart- 1
merit Interested In building up an ef-
flclent aerial arm to the service through
the National Ouaril. They hIho Inquired
what had become of l!,r,40,O0O Congress
appropriated for aviation.
"For unknown reasons," It was sAld,
"the aviation section of the army, which
has control of the expenditure of the
$9,(140.000, Is withholding this money
from the Nutlonal nuard. On Septem
ber ( Adjt.-(ien. Stotesbury was In
formed by Major-Gen, Mills that Con
gress had allowed only J 76.000 for train
ing National Guardsmen and that only
fifty guardsmen would he trained."
This action was described by members
of the Aero Club us most destructive.
The chagrin was the greater because It
was throuRh the club's efforts that the
funds with which to start training
of guardsmen In nvlatlon were raised.
The club's first contribution was f 12.S00.
To 'this subsequently was added SI.8I5
and a 7,6no loan.

FOR CITY'S LEASES
Director Bullock Says Jamaica
Bay Deal Was Virtually
" a Gift.
William Bullock, director of the Bu
reau of City Inquiry, made public yester
day a statement that calls the leasing
by the city of property In Jamaica Bay,
on the line of the Lnnn Inland Itallro.id,
"tho comparative Rlvlnc nway for the
next thirty years of 1,117 acrin."
"Four hundied tenants nf the city on
the property wore transferred to a
'dummy' for a private corporation," eajw
Mr. Bullock, who points out that the
private corporation pays tho city only
what the city tenants formerly paid nnd
that tho corporation has tervrd notice on
Its tenants of Increased rentn of from
70 fo S00 per cent, that will give It a big

The ultimate plan is to transform the
property Into a Venice. Thirty-three

canal system will attract thousands.
"A boulevard Is planned to run through
tho Islands and connect the mainland
with the Hockuway peninsula. If pres

Its comparative gift of the three Islands

"The city parted with the property on
two leases, each for thirty years, calling
for a total rental of $10.67 an acre for
the first thiee yearn, with periodic In
creases thereafter up to 133.73 for the

man Joe and Miss Hammersteln and Mrs.

behind them. H was nlmost midnight
and all New York slept. With a last
lingering look at the f lumbering metropo
lis, Joe the Guide turned, his back on the
haunts of innn and In silence led the way
down granite cliffs to a ledge known as
"the upper level."
Here they found a semblance nf shel
ter a woodsy looking Pullman which
1 lacked the sleeping comforts of home,
but boasted nevertheless of double rows
of bunks placed one above the other ex
actly as tho sleeping bunks are arranged
In the rough lumber camps of the far

ter the party stumbled upon a human
Iielng, a swarthy native who In the semi
I darkness of the shelter might have been
either an Onondaga Indian or n French
Canadian, but said his name was Oawgo
Llpplncott ; nnd Oawgo bade them wel
come. Footsore nnd weary, Joe the Guldo and
his parly turned In for the night. Be

was closing nbout them, ns Joe noted
every time ho awoke from a re-tlcss
sleep nnd peeked nut the window upon I

as the day advanced they came nt last
to the forest primeval ncross from the

Movies Are on Hand.
The last telegraph accounts to come
from the deep woods yesterday' were that

tively, however, that he took with him
at least his written contract with the
movie people, which was Inscribed on n
largo stout sheet of paper, but whether
be discarded even his contract at the
edge of the forest Is yet to be learned,
"And what and how much of anything

Arthur llammeistcln was asked In Mull
'Tiger skins," answered Miss Ham
mersteln's proud father.
Here arises a ticklish situation which
has to do with the New York State game
laws. Threo years ngo when Joo went
Into the Maine woods naked and cane
n momn nuer ruuy cioincn in mo
.kins of deer he had killed with dead-
falls, the deer season had not yet opened
!Bnl there was talk of arresting Joo for
killing game out of season. But In view
f ti,c trrff,t taken In the s'.unt the
Maine authorities conveniently looked
the other way and took no action.
But' It In doubtful that the more se
vere game wardens of New York will be
so lenient with Miss Hammersteln, even
though the Broadway actress Is wholly
concerned with the scientific nature of
her experiment For If therm Is one con
servation Idea which the New York Con
servation Commission and the gnme olll
clals of the State will stand no trifling
with It Is the preservation of the few
remaining tigers still roaming the forests
skirting Paul Smith's und Prunk Gar
van's and Harry Payne Whitney's hot
nnd cold open plumbing shacks In the
fastness of the Blgumps.
In fact there has been nn absolutely
hermetically sealed season on tigers In

average of seven tigers a day for two
weeks during a trip to his Adirondack
camp slightly more than a year ngo,
Justice to Mr. Oarvan It should be said,
however, that he did not then know that
the game laws permit a. hunter to bag
only live adult tigers per day.
But the howl that went up caused a
stiffening of the tiger shooting laws
which. It Is feared, will cause Miss Ham
mersteln to regret on many a cold night
In the woods that she did not at least

LITTLE GINGER IN
Main Interest Ts in Sealmry's
Battle, for Progressive.
Democrats In New York nre taking
little Interest In their parly primary
campaign thh year. Judgo Scnbury, se
lected by Charles K, Murphy to make
the run for Governor, will bo accepted
to-morrow, but without enthusiasm, Tho
outlook Is for n light vote.
It Is somewhat less ccrtaJn that the
Tainmnny m lection for United States
Senator, Wlllliim F. McCombs, will win.
He Is opposed by Thomas V. Conway, a
former Lieutenant-Governor nad tho
nntl-Tnmmnny lender In Clinton county.
Tho Tammany lag Is proving to be a
handicap to McCombs In tho up-Htato
count Uh nnd he has been kept busy con
tradicting reports that he stands for a
Tammany factional opposition to Presi
Wilson Men for C'nnnny.
Wllpon Democrats ns distinguished
from the "regulars" of )he Murphy or
ganization nre snld to be supporting Con
wuv with substantial unanimity, not
withstanding McComb'M efforts to show
thnt he nlso Is n Wilson man.
McCombs met friendly Democrats from
nil parts of the Stale yesterday, and
afterward announced that ha felt con
lldcnt ho would pull practically nil of tho
enrolled Democratic vote.
As none but enrolled voters can par
ticipate In a primary election MeComhs'a
stntemetn amounted to n prediction that
bis opiKinent would not be In the run

Tho Democratic leaders In this city
are less Interested In their own than In
tho Progresslvo primaries. Thulr great
est efforts havo been devoted to promot-

To be able to buy cars like these at a saving of
20 to 60 is a real motor opportunity. Wc
