Planning Air Tour
Around the World
CBx Aaaoclated I'ith I
Paris, Oct. 22-At the great air
way congress now being organized
in Paris in conjunction with the au
tumn Aero Show, an effort is to be
made to join up missing links in the
world airchain.
Should this be accomplished a
rush round the world by air in 408
hours and at a cost of about U80
will be one of the possibilities of the
future. Airway experts are now
ready to specify the machines and
map out the route.
Leaving London at 8 a. in., on
Monday, they say Constantaiople
could be reached at 4 a. m., on Tues
day and Cairo the same day.
Then with a berth booked on an
air leviathan, Sydney, Australia,
would be reached at 10 a. m., the fol
lowing Tuesday.
After this, taking the Pacific in
another great air voyage, they figure
that the passenger would arrive at
San Francisco at 4 p. m. on Satur
day. The next stage would be the Trans
American route to New York whicn
would be reached at 10 p. m., on
Monday to take another air liner to
London where it would arrive at 8
in an undesriable classification.
"People of Hawaii should not be
blind to the fact that the events in
this ocean and. the majority of news

ple in the United States to think of
Hawaii more frequently in terms oi
the state department than of the in
terior department, however."

sas in the winter is the program fol
lowed by Prof. David L. Patterson,
who returned the middle of Septem
ber from a three-months ' trip to
South America, visiting a score of
the cities along the west coast and
back the east coast after a trip
Alaska. Summer hefore he circled
across the Andes. Two summers
before that, in the early days of the
world war, he visited the battle
fronts of Europe as a war corre
spondent for an American newspa
per. On all these trips Professor Pat
terson observed cjlosely the condi
tions of the countries through which
he traveled, and from the South Am
erican and the European trips
brought back large numbers of rep
resentative newspapers for his li
brary. His early newspaper train
ing impelled him, on his Alaskan
trip, to note the great forests of
spruce, as yet practically untouched.
The greatest of these Alaskan for
ests, said Prof. Patterson, are in the
southeastern part. They are con
trolled through the United States
forest service, and but two permits
to paper pulp companies have been
issued. These forests are extensive,
and need never be exhausted if prop
erly safeguarded, Prof. Patterson
said, for they form a second growth
in thirty years.
Prof. Patterson's Alaska trip
combined all sorts of transportation,
including the Alaskan railroad now
being constructed by the United
States government, river steamer
and Pacific liner, as well as plain
"mushing" as in the gold-rush days.
His trip carried him through the At
lin Lake country of British Colum
bia, and as far as Dawson, Yukon
Territory.

OF TIE LEGIONS
(II 7 Aawiclatcd Pireaal
Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 22 A no
table gathering of famous men, sol
diers and statesmen, will mark the
third national convention of the Am
erican Legion here, Oct. 31 to Nov. 2.
Marshal Foch, commander in chief
of the allied armies during the last
months of the world war, is the prin
cipal guest of honor, but there are
to be a number of others of great
distinction. Marshal Foch, Legion
officials point out, commanded the
greatest army, both in numbers and
fighting ability, of which there is
any authentic Tecord in history. Be
side his hosts, the armies of Alex
ander the Great, Genghis Khan, At
tila the Hun and even the hordes of
Saracens that swarmed into Europe
in the middle ages, were pigwy forc
es. This will be Marshal Foch's first
visit to the United States, and he has
announced his greeting to the Amer
ican people will be made at the Le
gion convention.
Representing Great Britain will
come Admiral Sir David Beatty, of
battle of Jutland fame. Former
"gobs" of the American navy, who
served with the British navy have a
warm admiration for Admiral Beat
ty, and the part he played in the one
major naval engagement in which
the German fleet engaged.
From Belgium Lieutenant General
Baron Jacques brings an official mes

Italy.
American leaders will be represen

H. Crowder and thirty veterans of

or, the highest decoration for cour
age which any American solider can
win. Governors of twenty states
have also promised to be present.

cepted the Legion's invitation to be
present, saying she would gladiy
come to sing again for "her boys.1
The parade, in whjch 40,000 former
service men are expected to march
will be colorful. Men in cowboy
costume, Indian veljerans in tribal
regalia, and Iowans in costumes
decked with corn blades are among
those who will participate. Air
planes and tanks will have a part in
the parade. Allied flags will give
color to the streets through which
the marchers wind.
A western rodeo is to be staged by
members of a local Legion post, all
of whom are stockyard workers.
Five women "broncho busters" will
also do their part Hugh Strickland
Jim Harmon of Oklahoma, Lloyd
Saunders, a Kansan and Mike Has
tings are among those who will par
ticipate in the rodeo.
A number of American fliers who
made distinguished war records,
among them "Eddie" Rickenbacker,
are entered for the aviation meet
which will be one of the Legion's en
tertainments. There will be races
at the aviation meet, and cash prizes
amounting to $10,000 have been pro
vided. The problem of feeding the visit
ors, Legion officials believe, will b
satisfactorily handled. Of course,
they admit, soldiers are always hun
gry, but street vendors of "hot
dogs," and Salvation! army lassies
offerine "coffee, doughnuts and sal
vation free" are expected to alleviate
that condition. Restaurants will be
supervised by a convention commit
tee to prevent possible overcharging
A "military police" company is
planned to aid the local police in
maintaining order and handling the
crowds, and W. A. Rnupp, adjutant
general of Missouri, will set up a
"military court" to deal with petty
difficulties of any sort . which may
arise among the veterans. The con
vention committee of the Legion has
been advised that local police will not
interfere in cases of this sort.

Farming in Britain
Does Not Pay Says
An Agriculturist
(Br Aaaodnt4 Preaal
London, Oct. 22 S. F. Edge, the
well known motorist whose scienti
fic farming in Sussex has given him
almost equal rank as an agricultu
rist, says that under present condi
tions farming in England does not
pay.
He has offered to turn over to a
committee of his farm workers
farms worth 20,000 and, leaving
their management entirely in their
hands, see if they can make them
pay.
"This year," he says, "the aver
age farmer lost money. Faced by a
falling market he has had to pay
wages out of capital. Thus grazers
have been losing from 10 to 15
per head of stock. Actually this
year it pays me better to feed rny
stock on what than to sell the wheat.
After keeping his sheep for two
years, the farmer gets a shilling a
pound for the mutton which the
butcher sells for 2s 8d a pound, mak
ing his 150 percent profit in a week.
On most farming land I can today
only trace a profit on pigs.
"With prices of farm produce
falling so fast that the cost of pro
duction is more than the price for
which the animals or crops can sell,
the farmer is faced with this situ
ation: unless he can reduce produc
tion costs, either he must give up
farming while he has still some
thing left or go bankrupt.
"To reduce costs he must reduce
wages or reduce the number of his
employes. But even such reductions
will not allow him to remain in bus
iness unless all his employes are in
earnest that he shall succeed. Un
less one and all agricultural work
ers are prepared to give of their best
agriculture generally will fail, and
that quickly. Until everybody on a
farm regards a bad time-keeper as
a thief, we shall never attain efficiency."
