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
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
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.
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
Mas Smiling
A short time later the ball was
reclaimed a short distance below
the precipice, was ripped open and

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.

the Springfield man hauled from
within, smiling. One hundred thou
sand or more people, lining the
shores, cheered. His sister Madame
J. P. Cautierre, Sherhrooke. 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

"As she sat there, atone, defenseless, unallz to answer trie
terrible charges hurled against her, it seemed that her hurt,
crushed heart could itear no more. Was this the reward of

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
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
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.

life, "The No-Account Girl," in August True
Story Magazine.
