Mitchell Sees Feasibil ity of Idea if Given Govern ment Subsidy to Start. Transportation of freight by- air plane was predicted as a develop ment soon to be accomplished in this country, in an address yesterday aft ernoon by Brig. Gen. William E. Mitchell, assistant chief of the Army air service, before members of the Washington Society of tho Massachu setts Institute of Technology at thei# luncheon at the University Club. Gen. Mitchell expressed the opinion that the establsihrnent of a freight carrying airplane service at present would be a costly innovation. A gov ernment subsidy would solve the luncheon, at the University Club. The speaker related how he equip ped a fleet of airplanes with skis in ordt r that they might land and take off from three feet of snow. Tins ex periment w as carried out in northern Michigan with successful results. The Canadian government has also been experimenting along these lines, ac cording to the speaker, and has de veloped skiing airplanes for use in the northern regions of the country. Another problem in this connection. Gen. Mitchell told his hearers, is to keep airplane engines from freezing in zero weather. When not in use. the spark plugs are removed and carefully placed in electric stoves In order to keep them warm. Italnmaklng Practical. The principle of rainnmking by airplanes was also discussed by the speaker, who stated that he believed that this was a practical thing. The method used by the inventor. Prof. Warren, con. isls of spraying fine sand charged with positive electricity over clouds. This process causes the negatively charged moisture in the c b uds to coalesce and so fall as rain. Experiments along these lines have been can led out at the McCook Avia tion Field in Dayton. Ohio. The meeting was attended by a large number of naval aviators and officials of the bureau of aeronautics of the Navy Department, who are alumni of the Massachusetts Insti tute of Technology. James A. Tobey, p -esiding, announced that next week Prof. George C, Whipple of Harvard University would be the speaker. SUSPECT CHARGED WITH EMBEZZLING $95,000 By tlie Associated Press. ST.

There Is no flercer-looktng bird In all the Great World than Hooty the Great Horned Owl when he Is thoroughly angry- He wasn’t afraid j of that crowd of Crowe who were threatening to do such dreadful things to him and to Mrs. Hooty. No, Indeed, he wasn't the least bit afraid. He kntw that their, bravery was all In their tongues. But the racket they were making made him angrier and angrier. His great round, yellow eyes glared this way and that way as he turned his head from side to side to watch his tormentors. He was wait ing and watching. Now, in a crowd people will do things which they would never dream of doing alone. Perhaps It Is because they like to show off. Perhaps it Is because they feel that they have others to help them. Anyway, It Is always so. It was so with that crowd of Crows. The longer Hooty sat with out moving save to turn his head, the bolder they grow. You see, they were getting more and more excited, and when people are excited they do things they wouldn't do otherwise. 1' inally a young Crow darted down, [intending to pull some feathers out [of dlootj's hack. But he didn’t. No, sir. he didn't. The fact is. that young Crow lost some feathers himself, and. receiving such a fright, he suddenly remembered he had had no break fast and started off to get it as If there wasn't a minute to lose. Hooty bad whirled and struck at that young Crow and it was only good fortune that that young Crow had lost no more than a few feathers. It was all done so quickly, with Hooty back lit his obi position as if he hadn't moved, that it made all those Crows gasp. Suddenly another young Crow re membered that he was hungry and had had no breakfast. Without say ing a word he slipped away and dis appeared. Then another became hun gry, and another, and another. One by one those Crows silently hurried away to look for something to eat. until only a few of the older Crows were left. After what had happened to that young Crow it had seemed very convenient to discover how hun gry they were. The few remaining THE FEW REMAINING OLD CROWS TALKED THINGS OVER AT A SHORT DISTANCE. old Crows talked things over at a short distance and decided that it was foolish to try to fight on empty j stomachs. So they. too. departed, leaving Only Blacky and Mrs. Blacky. All this time Mrs. Hooty hadn’t budged from that nest, and it was clear that she had no intention of so doing. Blacky and Mrs. Blacky bung around a little while and then their empty stomachs became too much for them and they followed., their friends to look for a breakfast.’ leaving Hooty and Mrs. Hooty in peace. Hooty flew over beside the nest. He had stopped hissing and snapping his bill. He had smoothed down his feathers. "Well.” said he, “I guess we will be left In peace for the rest of this day. Those Crows are very brave with their tongues, but tongues never hurt any one. I wish X could have got my claws in one of them. It would have saved us some trouble in getting the next meal.
