, HOW HE WHS
Sixty-Five-Year Age Limit Hits Ail Classes. SENATE AND HOUSE LOSE Members From Each Would Be Dropped Without Delay. SUPREME COURT SUFFERS Chief Justiee White and Associate Justices McKenna, Holmes and Lurton Past the Age. If the rule favored by the House com mittee on appropriations for the retire ment of government servant? at the age of sixty-five years should be adopted throughout the service, it has been found, twenty-two members of the Senate, twenty-three members of the House, four justices of the United States Supreme Court. one cabinet officer, four judges of the Court of Claims, one judge of the United State? Commerce Court and two American ambassadors would be retired at once or uithin a few months. An examination of the list of those who would be retired from these bodies, it is pointed out. shows that the rule would retire some of the most useful and valu able public servants. The senators who are sixty-five years Old or over are Messrs. Bacon of Georgia. Hankhead of Alabama. Bradley of Ken tucky. Burnham of New Hampshire, Cat roa of New Mexico, Cullom of Illinois, Dillingham of Vermont, du Pont of Dela ware, Gallinger of New Hampshire. Johnson of Alabama, Martin of Virginia. Nelson of Minnesota. Page of Vermont, Perkins of California. Root of New York. Smith of Maryland. Stevenson of Wis consin. Tillman of South Carolina, Thorn ton of Louisiana. Warren of Wyoming, Wetmore of Rhode Island and Works of California. Bear Great Responsibilites. Many of these senators, some even over the allotted span of three score and ten years, bear i reat responsibilities in the upper house of the national legisla ture. Mr. Cullom is chairman of the committee on foreign relations; Mr. War ren, chairman of the powerful committee on appropriations; Mr. Perkins is the head of the committee on naval affairs that has charge, among all matters af fecting the floating war strength of I'ncle Sam. of the annt-.al appropriations for the navy; Mr. du Pont is head of the com mittee on military affairs, which holds a similar relation to the War Department; Mr. Nelson is chairman of the commit tee on commerce; Mr. Rurnham of the committee on agriculture: Mr. Dillingham of the committee on privileges and elec tions?all important committees with grave responsibilities. Mr. Gallinger looks after District legislation in the up l>er house of Congress as chairman of the Senate District committee, and is chairman of the all-important and power ful committee on committees. Senator Martin is minority leader of the Senate arvl has been chosen by the peo ple of his state of Virginia, to represent them for another six years after March l next. Mr. Baton Is ranking minority member of the committee on foreign re lations and would be its chairman, proba bly, shot. Id the Senate become demo cratic. Mr. Bankhead has already been chosen to represent Alabama in the Sen ate until 1O10. Mr. Caton was recently chosen by the legislature of New Mexico despite the fact that seventy summers and more have rolled around since his first tooth came. Mr. Johnson would probably become chairman of the com mittee on privileges and elections, should the Senate po democratic, and Mr. Till man would likewise take charge of the committer on appropriations. Mr. Works was chosen senator by the people of Cal ifornia when he was nearing sixty-live years of age. The application of the rule to the Sen ate wou.d next year retire Senators Stone of Missouri. New lands of Nevada and Oilier of Pennsylvania. How It Affects the House.

Representative Ainey Takes Trip at College Park. ENJOYS HIS EXPERIENCE j * * Desired That Other Members of Con gress Make Flights. FECK BELAYS HIS JOURNEY Forced to Abandon Plans to Soar Over the Capital?Officers Go Up. Another congressional passenger was carried on the aerial bus line at College Park yesterday. Representative W. D. B. Ainey of Pennsylvania took a ten minute ride with Lieut. Thomas Milling. Friday Representative Heald of Delaware took a flight with him. Lieut. .Milling is coming to he looked upon as the reliable little taxicabman of the flying squad, ?nd Is usually deputed to .take up the con gressional visitors to College Park. This makes three members of the House who hive taken flights In the government machines. It is wlsfted by those interested In the art that more of them would ?vol unteer as passengers. All have enjoyed themselves. Representative Ainey thor oughly so. The chances are that if a m.'ijority of the House members could be given rides there would be more interest in Congress in the development of an aviation squad, It is declared. Indifference Is Shown. As the case now stands there is a biU recommended by the. Secretary of War be fore the House committee on military af fairs. but the chances are that it will not get out of the committee. It provides for an additional number of officers in the Signal Corps to operate and care for twenty four machines. There seems to be no particular opposition to the measure, but merely an indifference as to whether any th.ng in the aviation line is done or not. College Park is beginning to take on quite a. lively air as the season ad vances. There were three machines in the air at one time yesterday. Both the Burgess-.?right and the standard Wright were being operated by the army officers, and Paul Peck, the Washing ton aviator, had out his little one-man biplane, a machine of his own design. This little machine is so small that it bears about the tame relation of a hum ming bird to a sparrow compared with the army machines. But it is consid erably faster than tliw Wright ma chines and has even beaten the fast Curtiss in a match race. Telephone Is Used. An experiment was tried by the army aviators yesterday with a telephone, it being used for communicating between the aeroplane driver and his passenger. Ordinarily the engine makes so much noise that it is impossible for the avia tor ?nd the passenger to talk. The tele phone connection will be an important military feature when completed unless the introduction of a muffled engine makes flight silent as automoblling is now. A All of the army aviators are preparing for a flight on Monday from College Park to Chevy Chase, where they will b? the outdoor attraction in the field day of the Washington Aero Clula which on that dato will celebrate the anniversary of the first flight of a heavier-than-air machine by Prof- I?ang ley. late secretary of the Smithsonian Institution. All the array aviators and Paul Peck will take part in the exer cises. Feck Forced to Descend. Peck started a flight into Washington from the park yesterday, but he was using some extra high teat gasoline and when he got altitude for the flight hiS carbureter commenced to freeze and he had to return. The army officers who made flights in cluded Capt. Chandler. LJeut. Milling, Lieut. Kirtland and Lieut. Arnold, who has jusjjt returned from leave of ab sence.

NEW YORK, May 4?Tlje legal status of the graduated bottle at a dodger of the ex&s* tax ot the Great White Way has been established. In a decision handed down today the appellate division of the supreme court rules that any one so disposed may buy as much liquor in New York restaurants as he choose before the hour fixed by law for clewing, and consume the same at any time after hours that he pleases in the restaurant. Three years ago Commissioner of Ex cise Clement charged Rector's old restaurant with violating the law. His detectives had obtained drinks there after 1 o'clock in the morning.
