Meteorologist Describes Phenomenon Of Autumn Equinox And
Its Relation To Weather—Present Month Has
Been More Like Summer Than Fall
Next Saturday will witness the au
tumn equinox. On that day the sun
will cross the equator and will make
night equal ,to day all over the world
for the time being. The day also
marks the astronomical beginning of
From that day on the populace can
expect progressively cooler weather
until the winter of 1922-23 has be
come history. People who have been
commenting lately on the shortening
of the day and the quick advent of
bisk can. after next Saturday, really
have some grounds for talking of the
hurrried approach of darkness and
the the meagerness of day. It will
then. Indeed, he all too pronounced,
except, of course, to those who, like
Edgar Allen Poe, "build their nests
vith the birds of night," and prefer
noonshine to sunshine.
Calls October Best
However, according to J. H. Spen
er, head of the Baltimore, district
United States Weather Bureau, the
fall equinox should make people
a this section fairly happy, for it
neans that one of the best months of
he year, October, will follow immedi
ately afterwards. October, it was
pointed out, is almost always a clear,
cool, ideal-weather month. For in
stance, it was said, last October had
20 clear days.'
The statement that night will equal
day next Saturday is* theoretically
true, but, as a matter of fact, the
earth's atmosphere refracts the sun’s
rays, causing the sun to appear alxfve
the eastern horizon in the morning
before it has actually risen, and to be
visible above the western horizon at
night after it has actually set.
As a result, on next Saturday the
sun will rise j|t 5:54 a. m. and will set
at 6:02 p. m., which will give a total
period of sunshine here on that date
of 12 hours and 8 minutes, unless the
! FOR NAVAL AIRCRAFT
An experiment of high technical
value will feature the airplane race
for the Curtiss Marine Flying Trophy
to be held in Detroit on October 7.
Four navy planes will be entered In
the race. They are of the same gen
eral type but.contain design modifica
tions and different types of engines.
The planes include a maximum of
now and advance features—Loth in en
gineering and aerodynamics—and it Is
exported that the outcome of the per
formance of the four planes will in it
self be productive of valuable informa
tion along the lines of design for ship
board planes, a subject in which the
American Navy has been deeply inter
ested since the success of the airplane
i ombing attack which was conducted
last summer off the Virginia Capes.
The types of naval plane to lie used
are designated in naval aircraft no
menclature as Ts-1 and Ts-2, also the
TR-1 and TH-3. All four are varia
tions of the combat plane that has
been built at the naval aircraft factory
at Philadelphia for use on battloships
of the American Navy.

Earth’s “Axis" Square With Sun
“On the dates of the two equin

axis of the earth is said to be ‘square
with the sun,' and this is why the days
and nights are equal the world over.
It is at the two equinoxes that the
sun's rays at midday are vertical at
the equator and touch each pole.”
While summer, It was pointed out,
ends this year on September 22, as
tronomically speaking, the real end

gists. occurred on August 31. In all
Weather Bureau statistics “summer”
is considered the three months of
June, July and August.
Mr. Spencer said the first half of
this month furnished regular sum
mer weather. |
' "The first half of September this
1 year/’ he said, '“furnished weather
much more characteristic of ‘summer*
than of ‘autumn,’ and the average
• daily temperature was nearly five de
i grees above normal. A normal Sep
, tember furnishes ‘autumn’ weather
■ for the most part, as a rule.”
I Mr. Spencer then closed by explain
ing the relation of the equinox to
r "There is no relation between the
■ equinox and the weather," he stated,
“although storms that appear at about
‘ that time are often referred to as
: ‘equinoctial storms.’ The weather.
' however, is changing at about the
time of the equinox from the ‘sum
mer’ to the ‘autumn type. Summer

thunderstorm or local type, but au-

NAVAL FEVER MEETS
INSTANT DEATH IN
■ AEROPLANE ACCIDENT
Lieut. Frank Casper Fechteler, U.
3. N., son of the late Ilear-Admiral
V. F. Fechteler and Mrs. Fechteler, of
8 Maryland avenue, was Instantly
killed at Selfridge Field, near Mount
Clemens, yesterday afternoon when
the Spad Army biplane he was flying
stalled 150 feet in the air, went into a
tail spin and fell on the flying field.
Lieut. Fechteler. who was one of
the best known of the younger navy
aviators, was to have piloted one of
the navy favorites in the Pulitzer air
race to be held October 14. The avia-
I tor, who arrived in Detroit a week
ago to conduct trial flights tin prepa
ration for the race, was taking the air
for the first time since his arrival
from the U. S. S. Langley, where he
was In charge of the ship’s planes.
Lieut. Fechteler intended to round
the course over which the Pulitzer
race will be flown. The score or more
of army and navy aviators who were
watching his ascent expressed the be-
lief he gained altitude too suddenly.
• The plane was shattered when it fell.
Lieut. Fechteler, who was gradu-
I ated from the Naval Academy in 1917.
was a brother of Lieut. W. M. Fechte-
I ler, a member of the Academy class
I of 1916, now attached to the Post
Graduate School. His mother and
! sister, Miss Amy Fechteler, are
spending the winter in Annapolis.
Arrangements have not yet been
completed for the funeral of the
young flyer, whose remains have been
sent on from Detroit, but it is thought
he will be buried in Arlington, where
Admiral Fechteler lies.
A new compound has been made
which will remove the knock from
an auto motor. Salesmen, it is said,
are working on a concoction that will
remove it also from the buyer.—Phil
