BABUSHKIN FLIES BACKTOMALIGIN Returns Alter Forced Landing in Arctic Wastes Kings Bay, Spitzbergen, July 5. (CP) Three of the 24 men who have been trapped within the bit terly cold Arctic wastes have come out alive while there were reports reaching here that three others mining since May 30 had been leen. The three men who came out were the Russian aviator Babushkin and his two aides. Friday Babushkin started an 'air plane search for members of the crew of the dirigible Italia. He was working in connection with the Rus sian ice reaker Maligin. He soared sway in his specially equipped polar plane and hours of silence fol lowed. Four days passed without a word pf the Russian hero who had offer ed his life in an attempt to aid thfe Stranded Italia men. His radio was of small range and signals were not picked up. A strong fog held over the territory. The Soviet government expressed the hope throughout that Babushkin had landed because of the fog and that as soon as the fog lifted he would rejoin his mother Ihip. Flics Back Yesterday Baushkin flew back to the Maligin. He told how he had bees forced down in open water because of the fog and how be and his two companions had battled for hours to prevent the floating ice bars from crushing the fragile sea plane. Finally he was able to take off again and returned to his mother ship without having sighted any of the missing Polar explorers. i Meanwhile reports drifted here that the Stockholm Dag Bladet had printed an interview with Captain H. Riiser-Larsen saying that the men on the ice encampment, started by General L'mberto Nobile and now controlled by Lieutenant Viglieri, had traced Finn Malmgren and two aides as far as Foyn Island. The6e three men were landed with the dirigible Italia. After the ice encampment had been built they started walking towards Foyn Is land to get rescue for their com panions. Nothing has been heard from them since, despite that three dog sleigh teams are searching for them now. Captain Riiser-Larsen here said he could see no reason as yet why Malmgren and his two companions should not be alive, provided they were able to fight off exposure and any Polar animals. They had a food supply that was capable of Fit) days, provided it was properly rationed, the flyer said. Amundsen Seems Gone Meanwhile no word has come here of Koald Amundsen and his live aides who started to search for the crew of the dirigible, nor has there been any word of the six men who drifted away in the envelope of the great polar craft after it had made its forced landing. READ HERAU CLASSIFIED APS? SPRINGFIELD MAN OOESJVER FALLS Dares Niagara in Robber Ball Gomes Out Alive Buffalo. N. July t P Jean Albert Lussier, 34-year-old resident of Springfield, Mass., who realized an ambition of 20 years yesterday when he went over Niagara Falls in a. rubber ball, was happy today in having his theory vindicated. Not Hurt Except for bruises, Lussier was uninjured. He is one of a few men and women who have dared the mighty cataract and come out alive. Lussier said he was inspired to attempt the feat when as a boy he saw Bobby Leach go over the falls in a steel barrel. He later conceived the idea of a rubber ball covered with a light superstructure of steel. The occupant of the 758 pound fabric was towed out into the upper river by motorboat, having aban doned the announced plan of beings dropped from an airplane. The ball rolled and bounced through the up per rapids and over the Horseshoe falls. A weight had been placed at Lussier's feet to keep the occupant upright, but it became dislodged and Lussier went over the brink headfirst. Mas Smiling A short time later the ball was reclaimed a short distance below the precipice, was ripped open and M Protect your investment in your ODELTEORD THE Ford Motor Company is making a new ear, bnt it is still proud of the Model T, It wants every owner of one of these cars to run it as long as possible at a minimum of expense. Because of this policy and because of the investment that millions of motorists have in Model T cars, the Ford Motor Company is devoting a large part of its factories to making parts, in order that owners may enjoy uninterrupted service for many years to come. More than eight million Model T Fords are still in active service, and many of them can be driven for two, three and five years and even longer at small cost. New fenders, for instance, cost from $3.50 to $5 each, with a labor charge of SI to S2.S0. Tuning up the motor and replacing commutator ease, brush and vibrator points costs only SI, with a small charge for material. Brake shoes can be installed and emergency brakes equalized for a labor charge of only SI. 25. A labor charge of $4 to $5 will cover the overhauling of the front axle, rebushing springs and spring perches and straightening, aligning and adjusting wheels. The labor charge for overhauling the average rear axle runs from $5.75 to $7. Grinding valves and cleaning carbon can be done for $3 to $4. A set of four new pistons costs only $7 and an installation charge of $6. For a labor charge of 820 to $25 you can have your motor and trans mission completely overhauled. Parts are extra. AH of these prices are approximate, of course, because the cost of materials needed will depend on the condition of each car. They show, however, the low cost of putting the Model T Ford in shape for thou sands of miles of additional service. See the nearest Ford dealer, therefore, and have him estimate on the cost of reconditioning your Model T Ford. He will tell you, in advance exactly how much the complete job will cost.

Que., kissed him. Many other women tried to likewise. Not a few succeeded. 'I have spent more than a year and more than $7,00(1 on my ven ture," Lussier explained today. "I have succeeded and I am happy. I have demonstrated that, my theory is correct. I could do it again I am sure, but once was plenty for me. "As the ball was carried down stream in the rapids it was flump ed about quite a hit. Just before I plunged over the falls I received an extra severe bump. It gave me e nasty buise on my right temple. An other on the right cheek and one on the left shoulder bled." I had really no sensation whon I went over the falls. When I landed on the water at the botton I got a good jarring up. The ball struck the water and bounced up and down six times just like a ball being bounced on the sidewalk by a child. I went over the falls head first but. straps and pillows saved me from serious injury. Saw Leach "I got my first idea of going oer the falls while working in machine shops at St. Catherine. Ont., at the time Bobby Leach went over in a barrel for the trip and the fact that I did not get injured as badly as did Leach is proof that my theory was correct." Lussier is of French descent and was born at Concord, X. H., Octo ber 27, 1S9S. Mrs. Annie Edson Taylor was the first to plunge- over the cataract and live to tell of her experience. That was in 1001. She made the trip in a staunch wooden barrel .BoUliy I. each went over in a steel barrel 17 years ago.

Jh ey celled her en ou!Ie goldrdigger bMiL DO you remember (he sensational breach of promise suit instigated a few years ago by a humble flower-girl against her young millionaire lover and his wealthy mother? Because of the obscurity of the girl and the social prominence of mother and son, the trial attracted countrywide attention. Certainly no girl, cringing in piteous terror under the lash of cross-examination, ever strove more desperately to answer the ugly charges hurled at her by a merciless opposing counsel. "Gold-digger! Blackmailer!" her persecutor shouted. "A woman without a shred of honor ! An unprincipled wanton who makes a mock of marriage who knows only one kind of love the love of money and the luxury money can buy':' Money! They thought she wanted money! As if money could ever buy back the priceless happiness that had been snatched from her by cunning and trickery. Dimly, through a mist of tears, she saw be fore her that proud, grim 'lipped, haughty mother. There, too, she saw the white, set face of the son the boy she had loved, and still loved, with every nerve and fiber of her body. And then her turn came. In a voice broken by sobs, she told her pitiful story the story of her poor little romance that now was dead. As the wretched details unfolded under her attorney's gentle questioning, men hardened to sorrow wiped their eyes furtively women in the court-room wept aloud. Then came that sudden and dramatic con clusion. An unexpected witness appeared and in ten words hurled into the tense silence of the crowded court-room a veritable bombshell. Most people, stunned by the unexpected outcome of the trial, dismissed the matter u finished when the principals in the tragedy vanished from the public eye. Even today few suspect the true history of events behind that tremendous drama of intrigue, suffering and deathless love. But now, for the first time, the entire story has been told by the girl who was the central figure in that amazing drama. Told in words that will bring tears to your eyes tears of joy, of sorrow, of understanding and sympathy.
