Public Stuck Again
An official report W’ls us that at a
recent sale of government property
1100 standard -1 airplanes were sold
for S2OO each, about four per eejit of
their initial cost; liilb J N 1 planes
brought S4OO each, or eight per cent,
and “libs Curtiss motors were sold at
S4OO each, or 10 per cent. The Curtiss
company bought the entire lot. Coin
cidentally with this announcement
comes the news that the general board
of the Navy has recommended that
$4(1,000,000 js neeesi ary for the naval
air program for the coming year, al
though with the strictest economy
that sum can be kept down to $-'!o.
1)00,000. Secretary Daniels urgently
recommends that at least the latter
pt.'in be al.owed by Congress.
The sale of 2710 airplanes and 400$
motor- at m<-h ridiculously low prices
proves one of two things Kither the
equipment was practically worthless
in the beginning, or there has been
gross incompetence in liquidating the
.surplus stocks of the Air.-,;,-.
Arrested At Perryviile
Too much hilarity, booze and gen
eral high-jinks took place at Mrs.
Owens’ boarding house at Perryviile
on Monday night. When the local an
thorities failed to quell t'he disturb
ance. Sheriff McAllister was phoned
for. <>n reaching Perryviile he ar
rested five men and three others es
Those arrested were lodged in K1 k
ton jail where Magistrate Lewis gave
them a hearing on Tuesday afternoon.
It developed at the hearing that the
affair was a drunken brawl and as it
was not the first offense Magistrate
Lewis imposed a fine with costs on
each of the offenders who are Verdine
Owens, Russell Devine, Gordon Jack
son, Frank Messick and Joe Tomlin
War Time Prohibition
With the ending of June, war time
prohibition went into effect, to con
tinue until the ban is lifted by Presi
dential order at the conclusion of the
demobilization of the army. It is
thought that demobilization will be
completed in about ninety days, in
which event about three months of
“wetness’ would intervene, until Na
tion-wide prohibition goes into effect
on January Hi, 1!)20.
