the shipbuilding program for 1919
is completed in November, the yards
of the Great Lakes will have turired
out complete 526 vessels since Sep- |

and the remainder tugs, including 3 8 (
of the seagoing type, 150 feet long. ;
The lake yards were going at top c
speed when the armistice was sign

month that a record was established
by completion of 28 ships. Between
the signing of the armistice and the
opening of navigation approximately
4 00,000 deadweight tons of shipping
was produced in the lake district.
The first of a fleet of 40 oil-burn
ing freighters being built in- the De

of the same tonnage as the coal
burning carriers built for the United
States shipping board.

Cross the Atlantic in Sixteen
Hours and Twelve Min
utes in Non-Stop Trip
. By Associated Press.
laiiidon, June 16. —The final goal
of all the ambitions which flying
men have ventured to dream since
the Wright Brothers f}rst rose from
the earth in a heavier-than-air ma
chine, was realized yesterday morn
ing, when two young British officers,
Captain John Alcock and Lieutenant
Arthur W. Brown, landed on the
Irish coast after the first non-stop
flight across the Atlantic ocean.
Their voyage was without acci
dent and without unforeseen inci
dent, so far as can be learned. It was
a straightaway clean-cut flight
achieved in sixteen hours and twelve
minutes—from New Foundland to
Clifden, Ireland, a distance of more
than 1,900 miles. x
But the brief and modest descrip
tion which comes from the airmen
'at Clifden tells of an adventurous
and amazingly hazardous enterprise.
Fog and mists hung over the North
Atlantic, and the Vickers-Vimy bi
plane climbed and dove, struggling
to extricate herself from the folds of
the airplane's worst enemies. She
rose to 11,000 feet, swooped down
almost to the surface of the sea, and
at times the two navigators found
themselves flying upside down only
ten feet above the water.
Before coming to earth near the
Clifden • wireless station Alcock
circled the wireless aerials, seeking
the best spot to reach the earth. But
no suitable ground was found, so he
chanced it in a hog.
The wireless staff rushed to the
aid of the aviators. They found
Brown dazed and Alcock tempor
arily deafened by the force of the
impact. As soon as they were able
to be escorted to the wireless station
they telegraphed the news to their
friends, then had breakfast.
"That is the best way to cross the
Atlantic," said Lieutenant Brown
after he had eaten.
Red Cross Desires Report
When Soldiers Get Jobs
The Home Service Branch of the
Red Cross is an-xious to receive no
tice when a soldier is given a posi
tion. The local board has helped
scores of disabled soldiers who have
applied here for assistance in finding
a suitable vocation, but in many
cases have not received a report
when the position is secured.
This branch is busy every day in
taking care of soldiers ami has been
doing wonderful work. The work of
the Home Service would be helped
considerably if the soldiers or the
families of soldiers who have found
placement, as a result of assistance
given by the board here, would

Senate Will Also Continue
Discussion of League
of Nations
Washington, June 16. Senate
discussion of the Peace Treaty and
League of Nations, promising to con
tinue all this week and indefinitely
thereafter, transcends in interest
and importance all events expected
to come before Congress this week.
* The Treaty debate probably will
begin to-morrow and is expected to
rival in partisan intensity and ora
tory all past discussions of the sub
ject. The resolution- of Senator Knox,
Republican, of Pennsylvania, pro
posing that the Senate declare its
dissatisfaction with the Peace Treaty
as now framed and especially with
interweaving of the League of Na
tions with the portions of the Treaty,
is to be- the vehicle for the debate.
Senator Knox will open the fray for
supporters of the measure an-d vir
tually every senator present. Re
publican and Democrat, is expected
to speak on the resolution. Demo
crats carefully have laid plans in
opposition, with several promising to
| express their opposition in every
i possible form, some even proposing
a filibuster.
! A vote during the present week
on the Knox resolution generally is
I deemed improbable. Several sena
tors, including Chairman Lodge, of
the foreign relations committee, do
not plan to return to Washington
until late this week or early next
week, and a vote is ruot expected in
most quarters before the succeeding
week, with some Democrats in fa
vor of preventing a vote ertirely if
While the Senate is engaged in in

bills needed by July 1.

Traffic Is Tied Up
Shamokin, Pa., June 16.—Railway
traffic between Shamokin, Kulp
mont. Mount Carmel, Locust Gap,
Centralia and Ashland is at a

men of the Shamokin and Mount

Saddest Sight in Em-ope,
Declares Dr. Vernon
New York, June 16.—The saddest
sight in Europe to-day is that of -the
children of eight and ten and twelve
years of age who look and act like
children of four and six and eight
years," says Dr. Vernon Kellogg,,
who recently returned from a tour\
of Europe for the American Relief
"They have been underfed for
four years," continues Dr. Kellogg.
"Many have died; many are war or
phans. The parents of many are
absolutely destitute. Mal-nutrition
has weakened them; has retarded
their growth and development. Their
feeble voices cry to the world for
Herbert C. Hoover, director gen
eral of the American Re'lief Admin
istration, set aside for children's re
lief work In Europe $2,000,000 of
the $100,000,000 appropriated by
the United States for re
lief work in the war desolated
countries of Europe. To expend this
$2,000,000, the American Relief Ad
ministration has establihsed a spe
cial Children's Relief Bureau. De
scribing the work of this bureau, Dr.
Kellogg writes in a bulletin issued by
the American Relief Administration:
"Prom its own funds, added to by
grants from the impoverished gov
ernments of Eastern Europe and by
gifts from private charity, the chil
dren's bureau is trying to furnish
free food to the destitute and de
bilitated infants and adolescents of
the newly liberated peoples of Eu
rope; to save and rehabilitate the
next generation of Eastern Europe.
"But much more money than now
available is necessary if more than
a small fraction of the suffering little
ones are to he cared for. Therefor
the American Relief Administration
announces that it is willing and
anxious to receive and expend for
this purpose any money confided to
it by an charitable organisation and
persons interested. Such money will
be used for work in any denoted
country or region which is accessible
to it, or if so indicated, will be used
at the discretion of the American
Relief Association wherever the need
seems greatest."
