Tentative Plans for the Experiment
Embrace at Least 50 Borings to
Provide Thermal Map of Hot
Belt of Volcano.
Ilonolulu. An immediate start on
experimental borings in the bed of
the active volcano of Kilauea, on the
island of Hawaii, to determine wheth
er the heat of the volcano can be har
nessed and converted into electrical
Rower, was urged by Br. T. A. Jaggar,
director of the Volcano observatory,
at the annual meeting of the Volcano
Research association here.
Doctor Jaggar said that tentative
plans for the experiment embraced at
least 50 borings so located as to pro
vide a thermal map of the hot belt
of the volcano. The first boring would
be sunk to a depth of. 200 or 300 feet
in the center of the crater, with the
others at 50 to 100 feet deep, depend
ing upon the nature-of the resultant
Borings in Lava Beds.
Mos"t of these borings will be made
at the source of old lava flows.
The meeting, commemorative of the
tenth anniversary of the founding of
jthe research association, decided that
the borings should not be made un
til subscriptions totaling $8,000 had
been obtained to defray the expenses.
Of this sum $7,000 already has been
Doctor Jaggar also recommended
the construction .of a practicable pack
trail to the summit of Mauna Loa,
14,000 feet above sea level. Kilauea is
situated 4,000 feet above sea level, on
the slopes of Mauna Loa. Doctor
Jaggar said that he expected a sum
mit outbreak of Mauna Loa, in the
crater of Mokuaweoweo, next year,
or In the year 1924, as nine years will
have lapsed then since Mauna Loa's
Wants House for Scientists.
He also urged the construction of a
-house at the summit in order that
scientists might Kbe quartered there in
anticipation of this outbreak, as no
body has been known to have wit
nessed the first stages of one of
Mauna Loa's activities.
Previously attention has always
been attracted to the outbreak at the
summit by the reflection in the clouds
above of the glow of the boiling, fire
fountains which had risen through'the
summit crate"r. The board of direc
tors indorsed this suggestion.
Doctor Jaggar's report reviewed
the work of the research station on
the brink of Kilauea volcano and the
activities of the association.

caused Joseph Bonarsky, the boarder
who "forgot" to pay, to hobble into the
Second and Christian'street police sta

He told the desk sergeant that his
landlady, Mrs. Julia Snyder, of 835
-South Front street, had taken his
vooden leg from him while he slept.
He demanded its return.
"She took it," Joseph said, "as se
curity for a board bill. The leg cost me
$150. And I hid $10 in it before I went
Police were sent to bring Mrs. Sny
der and the leg to the station house.
"He owes me $24 for three months'
room and board. "I only took the leg
for security," she said.
Joseph finally unraveled paper and
silver money from various parts of his
clothing and upon giving this to Mrs.
Snyder he received his leg.

Chairman of the House Rules
Committee, Representative Campbell

imagined they are .doing President
Harding a service by preventing con--"feideration
of the resolution intro
duced by Representative Woodruff
(Mich.), and Johnson (S. D.), both
Republicans, for an investigation of

ing to leader Mondell the passage
of the, resolution will be a "reflec

kind of a reflection upon the Presi
dent is to when three of his alleged
friends combine to prevent an inves
tigation of a. personal friend of the
President and a member of his Cab

are pending? Mr. Harding himself
could not assume such an attitude,
without subjecting himself to severe
criticism. The only reflection on him
so" far is in the appointment of Har

General, but this reflection would be
greatly intensified if the President's

No room in the house should receive more attention to detail of
decoration and furnishing than the bedroom. Pleasant, tastily fur
nished sleeping quarters is every woman's desire, and can' be easily
achieved if the proper furniture is selected. A bedroom suite, of course,
should harmonize with the size and general layout of the room in which
it is to be placed. For this reason we advise that you allow us to assist
in making your selection. .
Furniture for the bedroom may
be obtained in suites of various num
ber of pieces or in individual articles.
In all probability it will be possible to
add a dainty vanity or chifforette to
the suite you already have. However,
