TWO SIX'TIONS 10 -TOCOAST STOP TRiP FBRCEDJLIO Defective Water Line Makes It Necessary for the Ma chine to Come to Earth at Indianapolis. - ENCOUNTERED STORM, RAIN PART OF TRIP Complete 2,060 Miles of Proposed Flight; Want to Repeat the Attempt if Permit Is Granted. Dayton, O., Nov. 4. Lieutenant? J. A. Mac-Ready and Oakley Kelly, army aviators, who were forced to land near Indianapolis this morn ing after completing 2,060 miles ot an attempted non-stop flight from San Diego to New York, arrived at McCook station here at 12:15 o'clock today and reported to Ma jor T. II. Bane, their commanding officer. In giving to Major Banc their first official report of the flight the airmen revealed that during their nearly 30 hours in the air, they were in tho midst of a storm and rain for 11 hours and 30 min utes. In crossing tho mountains the Wind was so strong that it threatened several times to turn their ship over. "At various times I thought the end was near," Lieutenant Kelly said: "I can safely say that two men were never neurer death than when the high winds In the passes of the Kockies tossed us about like a top. CI Iff Loomed In Front. . "At one time we wero flying smoothly at an altitude of 6,800 feet when suddenly a cliff loomed in front of us. I began to guide the ship to avoid crashing and by a mere chance I was successful in scaling the top of a precipice by about three feet. "Our first intimation of real trouble came when we noticed the water leak while passing over Kansas. "We made every effort to keep our radiator cool by using up our reserve supply of water, and jock eyed until we reached Indianapolis. . There we made a final inspection of the ship and found that the io- tor was s. hot that it would not ' permit us to go farther'.; We jna4 'the landing without trouble." COST Disappointed but not discourag ed by their failure to finish the flight to New York, both flyers in dicated that they want to repeat the attempt from San Diego if the . war department will give ita con sent Lieutenant MacReady, replying to a question, said that although in the air 32 hours as against 26 on the flight ending todayr tho re cent endurance flight over Kan Diego was not nearly us nerve racking as the distance voyage. Did Not Ixso Their Way. "The winds in the mountains " made the difference between the comparative safety of the flight over San Diego and the dangers of the eastern voyago," he said. "We did not lose our way during the entire trip as our instruments worked perfectly and Informed us at all times of our location and the direction In which we were trav eling. "Friday night we experienced heavy cross winds, which caused us to use much precaution. The ship worked perfectly with the ex ception of the defective water line." Lieutenant MacReady is the holder of tho world'R altitude reo ord and Lieutenant Kelly is one of the most expert distance flyers in the air service. . "IT WAS A WONDERFUL FLIGHT," SAYS ARNOLD San Diego, Calif., Nov. 4. Grat ification that Lieutenants J. A. MacReady and Oakley.Kelly, army aviators, had landed 'safely and that, even though they failed to reach New York, they had brought another aviation record to Amer ica, was expressed by local aero nautical authorities today. "It was a wonderful flight," said Major Henry H. Arnold, command ant of Rockwell field, from which the start of the airmen's flight was made yesterday morning, after he learned that Kelly and JIacReady had landed near Indianapolis, hav ing made mora than three-fourths of their coast-to-coast iiignt. It was declared that unless the head of the army air service rules otherwise, MacReady and Kelly will make another attempt to span the continent without a stop, this time starting at Mineola and land ing at 'Rockwell field here. The fliers told . friends before they started east that they would make such a trip if they failed to reach Now York, provided, of course that. official permission was given. Officials nt Rockwell field said today that it had been planned if the monoplane reached New xoris ofely, to take it on a tour of the country and then to install it in the Smithsonian Institution.

Armistice Day Has Been Chosen for the Ceremo nies to Be Held in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco an Francisco, Nov. 4. On Armistice day, November 11, a herolo statue of General Pershing,' picturing him as if watching troops in battle, will be unveiled in the Golden Gate park here. The statue Is a gift to the city or San Francisco by Mr. Morris Ilerz standlng squarely and looking for done by an old friend of the doc tor, Halg Patigan, noted San Fran cisco sculptor. Eight feet in height, the figure is ot gilt bronze and stands on a pedestal of silver granite. The pe destal is five feet high. It pre sents the general in field uniform, standing square and looking for ward, both face" and figure animat ed with the expression of alertness and energy. On the face of the pedestal Is the inscription: "In tribute to General Pershing and the victorious armies of the United States and her co belligerents during the world war 1914-1918. Presented by Dr. Mor ris Hertzstein. 1922." Dr. Hertzstein conceived the idea of the statue after he had heard from General Pershing himself th story of the American expedition ary forces and saw with his own eyes the fields where that force had won imperishable glory. The doctor toured the battle fields with Representative Julius Kahn of San Francisco immediately after the armistice and spent some time as the guest of Gener 1 Pershing.; Patigan has worked on tho stat ue for more than two years, and, at the request of the doctor, has kept 'the plans a secret. HEAVY HAIIj AT ORDWAY. Sugar City, Colo., Nov. 4 At Ordway, six miles from Sugar City, a heavy hall was reported-early to day. Some of the hail stones were reported as largo as . hen's eggs. Considerable glass was broken, but no serious damage was reported, MURDER CHARGE HEROIC STATUE QE PERSHING IS TO BE UNVEILED CLAUDE J El AT SEPTEMBER 15 Records Show That He Exe cuted an Agreement There on That Date; Not in Santa Fe as Claimed. When the alleged Ktchevary Ut ter, written upon stationery of the state land office and bearing the purported signature of Fred Mul ler, deputy land commissioner, was niudo public a few days ago, Claude J. Neis of Koswell, to whom tho letter was addressed, gave the Morning Journal a statement over tho telephone, as follows: "On tho day, nnd for some days prior to tho date of tho letter in question, I was in Santa Fe and stopped at Captain Mullen's home. No such letter wa3 ever received hy me. Of course, as an attorney I havo transacted business with the land office for some years for some of my clients. There was no occasion to write the letter bc causo I was in Santa Fo at the time it was written." At tho same time that Neis' dental was printed, what pur ported to ho u statement issuod Jointly by N. A. Field, sU!e land commissioner, and Fred Mullel' was given out. .Since then,, how ever, Commissioner Field had de nied having issued the statement attributed to him. Among other things, the statement said: "Any correspondence would, have been unnecessary because Mr. Neis came to Santa Fe immediately af ter the republican state convention and remained a week or longer working on soma of his business in tlx; land office, giving Captain Mul ler any needed opportunity for verbal arrangements." The republican state convention closed .September 9. The alleged letter is dated September 13 and refers to a lnnd lease for one Kt chevary. The, closing sentence reads: "I wish you could have waited until after the election, then I can do as I want to, but I will try and get this for you anyway, I put It in someone elsa's name, so the 'old fool will not know whp It is for, 1 will work It out some way." The Morning Journal has re ceived a photographic copy of a purported agreement entered into and signed by Claude N. Nets and H. A. Olive at Hagerman. N. M. September 1", on which da-te both Muller and -.Neis have stated the latter was hi Santa Fe. The agree ment follows: THIS AGREEMENT, tnad this -UHh-lay-"r. Sapteiplw, .-Wig, by nnd between Claud' J.

RCOTT S -ASSURED US CROCES Will Be Owned by Farmers and Will Be Necessary to Take Care of the Crop in the Mesilla Valley. I.ns Cruccs, N. M., Nov. 4. An nouncement whs made that Dona Ana county will have another gin next season to take care of n large part of the cotton crop. The gin will be owned hy farmers in the Mesilla -iilley. "it will be com pletely equipped. Whether the rin is to he operat ed ns a ro-operatlve or private en terprise has not yet been decided, but it Is understood that it will be financed by growers, wlio will en gage a competent gin and com pressor man to oprrato tho plant. The two gins In Dona Ana coun ty are in Las Cruces and at An thony. The first named is oper ated by the Mesilla Valley Cotton Products company, headed by Robert P. Porter, an experienced cotton man. , James Quesenberry, president of the Dona Ana county farm bureau, says that another gin will be nec essary next year to take carp of the crop.

St. Louis,. Mo., Nov. 4. Tho worst bit ot economic buncombo pre valent today is the ballet that largo crops mean good times for farmers, Charles Dillon, assistant to the Chairman, western presidents' ram mitleo of the Assoi!iasim of Rail way Executives, told members ot, the Traffic club here. This- year, due to the political speeches of radical candidates for office, the farmers have fallen into the mistako of blaming their trou bles mainly to high rates charged by railroads, he said, adding that rates have little to do with it. "In an address in Chicago, J. R. Howard, president of thu American Farm Bureau, t-stimati A the total annual income of the farmers at 1 10,970,000,000," Dillon said. "Of this amount farmers spent about 7,018,;i40,00u for gouds, machin ery and general commodities. In terest took approximately one bil lion dollars. Taxes amounted to $08:1.000.000 nnd railroad transpor tation Jl,12;:,0OO.00O. This makes I the farmers' outgo about $9,801.- J ),IIIMI. l'ny 2(1 IVr ( Vnt of Freight Rats "The federation figures that the farmers pay 20 per cent of the freight rates, or about $800,000,000 a year in freight rates. If that is the case, tbon only 8 per1 cent ot tho farmers' total expenditures is for freight transportation. The re mainder of their expenditures goes for general commodities, machin ery, interest, taxes all of which have increased as much or more than railways charges. It must be clear that tho farmers are not be ing ruined by something costing them only 8 per cent of the whole sum they spend every year. "With bumper crops prices de cline. Some crops would not yield the farmers a fair return it the railroads carried them to market free. According to latest figures, farmers produced about 3RU mil lion bushels of potatoes last year. and received from ?1 to Jl.fiO a bushel. They1 havo grown more than 450 million bushels this year and the price is down to 3S to 40 cents a bushel, with poor demand even nt that price. Fruit irowti Enormously "Fruit was grown so enormously this year that prices went to piece.? and thousands of tons wero thrown away or permitted to rot. While railroad rates may be blamed for part of this loss, it is quite obvious that with their present operating costs, their undoubted need for new capital for development, the roads cannot afford to carry tin so crops at an 'out-of-pocket rate in order to meet dwindling prices in over- flooded markets. It hna heeomo nulla the custom to say that the railroads w'll have a net income this year of 00 mil- lion dollars. This is a big sum to a man who has no cash and whose notes are due at the bank while his crops decline in value or cannot be moved. No one ever tells the farmers that the roads earn only three and one-third per cent In 1921.- How many business firms would be content with any such re turn? "What the farmers need now Is not lower rates. They need cars, and they want them moved promptly, and more than cars they need a business-like system of dis posing of the crops they produce. If you doubt this you have only to watch tho prices go down when grain and livestock receipts at the big centers go up." HOY IS INJVHED. Clovis, N. M., Nov. 4. Carl Bar tow, a Melrose boy, was painfully injured when a car he was driving turned turtle. Bartow's; collar bone was broken and ho sustained hoavy bruises about the head.
