BY ROBERT MOOREFIELD United Pr* Staff Correix>ndnt BRULE, Wis., June 16.—The Pres ident has come to Brule. To the rest of the United States that may not carry an unusual significance, but to the 303 resi dents of Brule the day of Mr. Cool idge’s arrival was something of in finitely more importance than the Fourth of July, Washington’s birth day or the weekly band concert night. Less than a month ago Brule was unknown. Today a million persons were debating its proper pronunci ation, (it is pronounced as though rhymed with school). Its real estate boom, which sent rentals rocketing 700 per lent, shames the boom that made Florida famous, and fathers are telling their sons to tell their sons that on such-and-such a day President Coolidge came to Brule, the town nearest the summer White House of 1928. Villagers Thrilled The few residents of Brule are not concerned with the fact that Mr. Coolidge spent less than two minutes in the hamlet's unin corporated limits! that he did not leave the motor car which crawled along its main street at a snail’s pace, and that Mrs. Coolidge did not come to Brule at all. It is enough that the President came to Brule, and thus Brule Is satisfied. The 302 residents turned out in full force. Babies stood with their hands in their mouths, their fathers stood with their hands in their pockets, and Brule’s younger femi nine set quarreled as to the exact shade of the President’s hair. Anyway, Brule waved its hand at President Coolidge, and then began touching up main street and erect ing more concession stands across from the railroad shed. leaky Church Repaired Allen T. Colder, who saw that the leaky roof of the church was re shingled, paced in front of Webster’s Hotel with the beatific solemnity of one whose work is well done. Henry Denny, restauateur, stacked up three dozen thick coffe cups and waited for patrons. Mrs. A. J. Webs ter speculated on possible rentals in her spacious 10-room house. The fact that President and Mrs. Coolidge were some six miles away at Cedar Island Lodge, resting from the fatiguing train journey from Washington, and that Mr. Coolidge already was casting his line into the Blue River, caused hardly a flutter. The fact that the President would pass along Main street again today en route to his erecutive offices at Superior, however, did cause a flutter. Crowds began to collect about the three town pumps, talking excitedly. Presidents do not parade along the main street of Brule every day. Meanwhile, at Cedar Island Lodge, Mr. and Mrs. Coolidge were getting settled comfortably in their wood land home. The President was well pleased with the peaceful one-story house, cool and fragrant with lilacs. instructing a 17-year-old boy crashed. The youth was injured slightly. Anderson, a pioneer flier in Rich mond, operated a flying field there with Milton (Red) Hershberger, his buddy, whose new Waco plane was stolen two weeks after that of Anderson, under similar circum stances. Hershberger’s plane never was traced. The two aviators barnstormed the State, hauling passengers in their planes before they were stolen. Anderson was an accomplished musician and once had a dance orchestra. Mrs. Anderson is a talented pianist and conducts classes in Richmond. Hershberger recently took the position as instructor at Sandusky field held by Anderson at hts death. of this fortune was for sewing up a large hole in my pocket to harbor the newly acquired wealth. My most recent association with as much currency, was shortly be fore the last appearance of’Hal ley’s comet.

INDIANAPOLIS, SATURDAY, JUNE 16, 1928 Takes Off From Oslo Today; s Two Relief Parties Now in Region. Bu United Press OSLO, Norway, June 16.—Roald Amundsen, arctic explorer, told the United Press today he and Lieuten ant Dietrichson, Swedisly aviator will start an immediate search for General Umberto Nobile and the crew of the Italia. Amundsen said he and Lieutenant Dietrichson would leave for Bergen Saturday, from where they will take off Sunday in a French plane for Spitzbergen. A landing will be made at Tromsoe for refuelling, Amundsen said he planned to stay at Spitzbergen while Dietrichson conducted the search lor Nobile. The plane is equipped with two rubber boats, considered most es sential In rescuing the Italian filer. The steamer Braganza, chartered by the Italian government, arrived today at Brandy Bay and immedi ately put out a landing party that consisted of a dog crew with re lief for the men who have been iso lated in these polar wastes since May 25. Two Crews Seek Nobile The Braganza crew expected to meet a relief expedition from the Norwegian steamship Hobby some place on the territory surrounding Brandy Bay. The two crews, both hoping to reach General Nobile and the five men remaining in his Immediate party, cut across the ice-bound wastes • searching for any members of the dirigible that just a few weeks ago swept across the North Pole and then started down on an adventurous return flight to Kings Bay. The dirigible was cracked up when it sank suddenly just off Northeastland and dropped on an ice island. One gondola was smashed. Nobile and eight of his compan ions were freed, even though the Italian explorer and two of his aides were injured. Three members of the crew started on an expedition to North Cape, attempting to find land so they might return aid to the other members of their party. Storms Are Breaking Late advices, unconfirmed and received from huntsmen who board ed the steamer Braganza, said these three men had been picked up. This story said they had been taken aboard the Hobby. Meanwhile, reports reached Kings Bay that difficult storms were breaking over Northeastland. The six men remaining on this ice block are huddled about a silken tent, painted red to attract any aviators who might pass by, and are fighting the rigors of cold winds and sub zero temperatures. The plight of the stranded erdw easily is discerned through Nobile's late messages, which asked for food, arms and ammunition. The five men with the Italian ex plorer are suffering from severely cold-bitten hands and from a lack of food, which only Is alternated through a careful rationing of the compressed food the party now has. Ice Driven Eastward Stiff wind is breaking off the island where the six men are wait ing as the ice block on which they ride steadily is being driven east ward. Nobile reported in late advices that his injuries were improving rapidly as were the injuries of the other members of his party. The Italian commander said ice was splitting a large expanse of wa ter near where his ice island was riding. While this might cause a favorable starting for seaplanes, Nobile advised that if it became too serious it might result in his moving his encampment. ACTION ON HOSPITAL EXPECTED MONDAY City Health Board May Appoint Architect and Engineer. Mayor L. Ert Slack and board of health members today declined to discuss the closed-door conference Friday afternoon on the city hos pital building program. Slack said general plans wpre dis cussed.

T?R, ah, not meaning to change the subject, y-know, but I have compiled an interesting bit of statistics.

I know this to be a fact, being a carpenter on my mother’s side of the family. She was Maria Carpenter of Devonshire. Never before in my eventful life TREASURER TO GET PROFITS DESPJTEEDICT Clyde Robinson to Make Collections Himself for Big Fee. DODGES NEW RULING Decides He’ll Not Choose Aid for Delinquent Accounts. County Treasurer Clyde E. Robin son has found a way to get back at least some of the thousands of dol lars of personal profit lost when the Legislature stopped county treas urers from pocketing interest from Barrett law fund deposits, it was learned today. Robinson announced that he wiil handle delinquent tax collection himself this year, rather than share the profit by appointing a collector Ordinarily the fees from back tax collection amounts to about $40,000 a year. The delinquent tax collector, by law, gets on a contract a percentage of the amount collected for fees and mileage. Law Aids County The 1927 Legislature spoiled the Barrett law plum for- the Marion County treasurer. For a score of years the county treasurers had kept all the interest collected on Barrett law deposits. Sometimes this amounted to more than SIOO.- 000 a year. The last General As sembly legislated this interest into the public treasury. The law provides that $1.50 per delinquent taxpayer may be col lected, plus 10 cents a mile mileage fee. Contracts with collectors in the past, have divided this profit, the collector defraying expenses of collection. Estimates Gain at $20,000 Estimates of costs of collections vary, Robinson claiming it will cut the $40,000 by almost half. The $20,000 remaining will be in addition to his salary for 1928. J. D. Henderson who held the contract In 1927 is working under Robinson In preparing for the col lections, on a salary basis, as are other extra employes.
