CLEVELAND AIR
PAGEANT TURNS
FINANCIAL FLOP
Now Appears City Has Nice
White Elephant Stuck
on Its Hands.
BY ERNIE PYLE
Time* RtafT CorrupondMit
CLEVELAND. Sept. 3—The luck
of the national air races seems to
have been run out!
Wednesday the races were post
poned for the first time in four
years. It rained all day and it
looks as if it might keep on rain
ing.
Furthermore, attendance at this
year's show, now in its sixth day,
has been very disappointing. The
meet, unless something happens to
bring out the crowds, is doomed to
financial failure.
The grandstands and bleachers on
the huge Cleveland airport were
built to accommodate about 60,000
persons. But the total attendance
of all five days has not been more
than 100,000.
There are a number of reasons
for the poor attendance.
1. General hard times.
2. The length of the meet, ten
days, which many consider too long.
3. The rise of aviation out of the
unusual into the common place,
with a resultant tapering off in
public enthusiasm.
4. The fact that Cleveland had
the races two years ago, and the
spectacle no longer is new to Cleve
landers.
5. The lack of serious accidents so
far.
It Is sad, but true, that a fatal
crash or two brings out the crowds
m droves the following day. That
was illustrated convincingly at Chi
cago last year.
The national race meet has been
awarded to Cleveland for the next
four years, and there are many who
wonder if the Cleveland business
men who underwrote the project
haven’t a white elephant on their
hands. Some believe that in order
to get sufficient patronage to cover
expenses, the races must be held
m a different place each year.
CITY TO BOOST NEW
INDOOR RIFLE RANGE

Robinson Talks on China

Club at their luncheon meeting
Wednesday that "China is due for
a great awakening, and when it is

By Unit'd Press
DETROIT. Sept. 3.—A dirty
slip of paper lay on the floor
of a county jail corridor, mid
way between the ceils of
Gerald Rallis. 30, and his pal,
Vincent Mouillet, 34, charged
with robbery.
Rallis was straining to reach
the 'lip when a jailer passed
by and picked it up. It read:
*TII take the rap for this.
You stick to your story.”
Asa result of the message,
both will "take the rap” for
theft of a $l5O diamond ring
from E. C. Long, wealthy man
ufacturer. They confessed, po
lice said.

sources it first will introduce an
economy bill, and a finance bill for
additional taxation.
MacDonald is determined to
waste no time, and to keep the cab
inet in session as much of the time
as proves necessary.
His decision to demand a vote of
confidence on the first day of the
special session follows the govern
ment’s desire to determine immedi
ately the majority it may expect
in voting on subsequent measures.
