War Museum Deserted
Few Interested in Exhibits in
The Imperial War Museum at the
<!" tal ' nHce in London has been al?
most entirely deserted. There is a lot
to be seen under the great glass roof,
but few persons are sufficiently in?
terested to make a visit. The long
avenues of armaments are seldom vis?
ited. Among 20u or 300 visitors on
one day there were only two private
soldiers. Their opinion was: "It ?3
mournful, gloomy and uninspiring."
A "Daily Mail" representative who
made a tour of the exhibition found
that the majority of the people re?
garded the display in the same light
as the soldiers. A war widow and her
sixteen-year-old daughter, with the
knowledge of how "father died," shed
tears in front of the Warsprite ex?
hibits, and then walked slowly out of
It was a pathetic incident that moved
other visitors. But it was only one of
oleanic Eruption on Sun
Not long ago, at the Yerkes Observa?
tory, an eruption was observed (and
photographed) on the rim of the sun
which threw up material to a height
of 500,000 miles. One <:loud of it,
which appeared as if detached, was
reckoned to have some thousands of
times the volume of the earth. We
are accustomed to regard great vol?
canic explosions on the earth as the
most appalling of natural phenomena,
but they are feeble and trifling dis?
turbances compared with the outbursts
which are cor.tinualry taking place all
over the body cf thet sun.

3The tribune Fresh Air Fund
All Kinds of Folks, Everywhere, Make 2,600
Fresh Airs" Smile
There are 2,600 boys and girls In the
country to-day reaping the benefits of
Tribune Fresh Air vacations. "Who
sent them there? All sorts of people
?old folks, young folks, all kinds of
folks. If you don't believe it read a
few of the letters received with recent
contributions to the fund.
First from the old folks:
"Inclosed please find check for ?7
to help some little "kiddie' to get a
glimpse of comfort.
"From a poor old chap who has seen
eighty hot summers and as many cold
winters. COAST WARDEN."
Second, by way of contrast, the
"This check (for $53) is sent by the
Outdoor Club of Boaver Lake, N. J.
It is composed of about twenty-five
? children from the age of twelve to
j sixteen years. When your appeal came
to Jane Richardson she proposed to
| the club that they raise money to
| gether. They gave a Salmagundy
party on Tuesday and as a result in?
close this check with best wishes tc
the Fresh Air Fund."
Third and fourth, more young folk3:
"The 'Busy Bees,' a group of twelve
little girls, living in Gulden's Bridge
N. Y., who meet at my country home
Friday afternoons to do Red Cross
work, etc., send through me the in?
closed $6, so that some little girls maj
also have the pleasure of being in th?
country, if only for a day.
"ADRIANCE B. BROWN."
"Inclosed check for $32 is sent bj
| the children of Cobbossee Colony, wh<
j gave an entertainment for The Nev
York Tribune's Frc^h Air Fund.
"Yours, VIOLET ROSENBAUM."
Then the middle-aged folks:
"Inclosed find check fcr $28 that wi!
help four little city 'bugs' to get ou
in the country and root around. Go
four myself, hut they're in the coun
| try all the time and the city ones suf
i fer by comparison. Sorry I'm so late
l but I think Almighty God will hav
| sunshine and fre?h air enough to g
! "Yours with thanks for your efforts,
"PERCY E. ANDERSON."
Last the old-younp; folk.-:
"I want to buy $5 worth of 'Fres'
Air' smiles from a few happy young
sters. I wish" more people realized ho\
cheap a smile can be purchased,
always carry loose change in m
pocket, and find that by slipping some
thing into the hand of a forlorn an
dirty-looking kiddy, or one crying fror
a hurt of some kind, they can be mad
to forget their troubles and hurts fo
the moment: and the smile I get mor
than repays me.
Everywhere folks are thinking of th
Fresh Air kiddies?in the vacatio
camps and hotels of Maine, New Hamr
shire and Vermont, in automobile sale:
rooms, in great city banks, in factorie
in the cities of Connecticut, in th
cities of New York. You can find trace
of the thoughtfulness in all these sort
of places in to-day's list bf contr
And, best of all, if you will lor
about halfway down the list you'll fir
j evidence o? thoughtful remembrance :
j the heart of one who knows whethi
! or not Fresh Air vacations amount '
j anything. To find this evidence loc
! for a contribution from "A One-tin
; Fres'i Air Kid."
? Will you thirfk about Fresh Air vac
?-'ons ior the children of the tene?
ments fo ra minute to-day? The fund
needs a great deal of money to pay for
the vacations of those 2,600 kiddies
who are in the country to-day.

780 Russian Waifs
To Visit New York
On Way Homeward
Sent to Siberia When Revo?
lution Broke, They Are
All That Have Been Ac
eounted for Out of 6,000
WASHINGTON, Aug. 17.?Voyaging
around the world to reach their homes,
780 Russian waifs, all that have been
accounted for of probably 6,000 chil?
dren sent out of Petrograd by their
? parents when revolution gripped the
old Russian capital, are on their way
from San Francisco to New York by
way of the panama Canal. They came
: from Vladivostok under the care of the
American Red Cross, of which they
i have been wards for two years. They
jare going back to Petrograd after suf
; fering and wanderings that for some
? of them have blotted out every recol
! lection of their parents, the places of
their birth or even of their own names.
Speaking of the experiences of the
children, who range in age from three
to seventeen years, a statement by the
Red Cross said:
"The long sea journey writes the
; last chapter in a history of wandering
i and adventure in a revolution torn
i country that can hardly be matched in
i the whole record of world upheaval in
I the last six years. It seems almost a
talc out of the Old Testament or Greek
mythology, and a thousand years from
now, it is perhaps not too much to say,
the Russians with their dramatic In?
stinct and mysticism will have made it
: a part of their rich folklore."
Sent to Siberia
When the revolution broke out in
Russia, the report continued, many par?
ents in Petrograd decided to send the
: youngsters into peaceful Siberia "until
i the trouble was over." They were sent
; east in charge of nurses and teachers.
Later, a barrier of fire marking the
\ battle lines of the opposing Russian
: and Czech armies had bee? stretched
between the youngsters and theii
: homes. Months passed. Winter ar
i rived, funds were exhausted and hun
| ger and war horrors menaced the wan?
derers. The Omsk government, ffp
: pealed to for help, passed it on to the
Group after group was taken ovei

\ box cars with a guard of Americar
doughboys transported the preciou;

: "It may be said that ingenuity wa?

up through the steering wheel, dislo?
cating Green's left arm. Green was
taken to the Coney Island Hospital.
Lightning caused a fire at the home
of Benjamin Nausbaum, of 2029 Surf

killed in a pistol duel in a dark stair?

olas L. D. Wallace, last night, was
crazed and made vicious by drinking

A description of the Dayton Wright
racing airplane, third American entry

next month, was issued yesterday by
the Manufacturers Aircraft Associ?

and is capable of making 215 miles an
The racer i? a monoplane of unique
type and is already on its way from

, to France. Until yesterday complete

i which is to be resumed this year for
the first time since 1913.
The "R-B" differs from ail other
American airplanes in three respects.
Its monoplane wing: is of cantilever
rigid construction, internally braced,
! and has no external struts or bracing
wires. It is equipped with a retracti

The last two technical features add
at least forty miles an hour to the
i speed of the remarkable machine
: through the elimination of resistance.
; The curve in an airplane wing isjtech
' nically known as the camber, and this
1 curve greatly affects the speed at which
j the machine takes off from or lands
upon the ground. By means of the
' variable camber the "R-B" monoplane
j can land at a minimum speed ?.nd
then assume a vastly increased speed
I in the air. by straightening the wing.
The body of the R-B is completely
j inclosed, and the pilot gets his vision
j through conveniently placed windows.
: The wheels of the landing carriage are
! drawn up into portholes on both sides
! of the body. The operation of drawing
; up the landing carriage and changing
, the wing camber is done by means of a
