London, Sept. 20.—(AP> —A severe
equinoctial gate today strewed a large
section of the western coast of Eu
rope with the tolls of its fury, various
Unde of craft being _ wrecked and
Many others Imperiled.
The storm has been raging since
last night but reports from the
southwestern coast of England this
afternoon said the gate had attained
a force of 100 miles an hour and thus
gave new cause for apprehension.
More than a dozen vessels, mostly
small craft, have been wrecked or
badly damaged in British waters. No
loss of life has been reported.
News from the continent showed
conditions to be Just as bad in the
channel, along the French Atlantic
coast and as far south aa Spain.
The Weymouth lifesaving crew and
the rocket apparatus were
credited today with saving six mem
bers of the crew of the French
schooner Madeleine Tristan. The
ship had been driven on Chesll beach
At Portland and the six sailers were
taken off after a rocket been
shot to the deck. The same organl
zation rescued the crew of two from
the French Ketch Leone, which went
aground In Portland Harbor. >
The 9,000 ton steamer Unverleigh
went rocks In Plymouth sound.
Several members of the crew were
taken off by the Plymouth lifeboat
but the captain, his wife and 15 oth
er sailors remained aboard.
Much damage was done on land al
so In the British Isles, while the Eng
lish Channel, always noted for its
toughness, rolled up tremendous seas
and all except the staunchest vessels
suspended traffic on that waterway.

FADED, FRAGILE PAGES TELL
ARCTIC BALLOONISTS’STORY
Old Documents Show Andros
and Companions Were
- Hopeful to the Last
Stockholm, Sept. 20. (AP)
Frozen faded pages, so fragile now
after 33 years that to turn them has
been almost to destroy them, have
told the story of the last days of Au
guest Salamon Andree, Swedish ex
plorer, and his two companions, who
in 1897 tried to fly over the north
pole in a balloon*
The pages are those of Andree s
diary, part of which he wrapped in
an old jersey and placed beneath his
arctic shirt next to his body before
he lay down to die on the. ice of
White Island late in 1897. Thus
preserved, they were found by Dr.
Gunnar Horn and others of a Nor
wegian artic expedition last month
with Andres’s remains and other
relica of the balloon expedition, and
were brought back here for minute
examination and publication.
Some phases of the disaster which
overtook Andree and his two com
panions the pages do not make clear,
and they may remain forever a mys
tery, but a remarkably clear and full
aceount is given of part of the bal
loon voyage which led up to the long
trek back toward land and a final
culminating disaster which doomed
them to death In Hvltoven, aa White
Island is known.:
The diary records the start Of the
balloon from Danes Island, Spits
bergen on July 11, 1897, with fav
orablo auspices for a successful
flight over the north pole toward
land on the opposite hemisphere,
where they hoped to come down safe
ly, much as did the dirigible Norge
nearly 3Q years later.
Pursued by Misfortune
But’almost from the start, mis
fortune pursued them. The balloon’s
gas bag leaked, and the balloon and

along the iee. At 7 p. ’m., on the

ARMY OF HUNTERS
READYFORSEASON
TO BEH MONDAY
Ducks May Bo Shot in Daylight
Hours Until Doc. 31; Chick
on Hunting Rostrictod
An army of more than 1,000 Bur
leigh county sportsmen are expected
to be at their passes at daybreak
Monday morning to participate in the
first duck shoot of the 1030 season.
The season will open at 9:30 a. m.
and continue until sundown Dec. 31.
The chicken season will not open
until October 6 and will continue for
10 days.
Interest in the annual bird hunting
has not been dampened- by "dry
weather” this summer, although most
sportsmen concede that the birds will
be fewer this year than In the or
dinary season.
Hunters will swarm to spots near
water, knowing that the birds will
be seeking water holes more than
ever this year.
A. C. Isaminger, Burleigh county
auditor, said this morning that hunt
ing licenses have not been “going as
fast as usual” but he expected a rush
this afternoon and evening. The au
ditor’s office will be open late tonight,
as late, Mr. Isaminger said, as the
hunters keep coming to the office.
Last year approximately 1.400 li
censes were issued. The auditor does
not believe that many will be issued
this week-end, declaring that many
will wait until shortly before the
chicken season before obtaining per
mits.
The limit for ducks,’ ms usual will
be 15 a day this year.
In an effort to reduce hunting ac
cidents this season, the Wisconsin
conservation commission has issued
a list of "Don't” warnings to hunters
which are just as appropriate in
North Dakota as in the Badger state.
The list of safety raise follows:
Don’t keep your gun loaded except
when you arev actually hunting but
handle it at all times as if it were
loaded.
Don’t point your gun at anyone
even If you are sure it is empty
Don’t handle a gun by the muzde
or pull it toward you. *
Don’t carry your gun when climb
ing fences or brush piles.
Don’t carry your gun so that an
accidental discharge might shoot
vour comnanion.
Don’t shoot at any game unless you
can see It clearly enough to positive
ly Identify it
Don’t be the fool who "didn’t know
it was loaded.”

BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 1930
SHAFER ANDMAIM
CITE NEEDS FOR NEW
GiUHELAWSmSTATE
/
Declare Progress It Hindered
by Confusing, Contradic
tory Statutes
A thorough and general revlsiop of
the North Dakota state game laws at
the next session of the state legisla
ture was recommended last night by
State Game and Fish Commissioner
Bumle Maurek and Governor George
F. Shafer before the fall meeting of
the Burleigh county Isaak Walton
League.
Several guests from Walton chap
ter* in neighboring counties attended
the banquet and program.
Both speakers declared existing
game and fish laws are confusing or
contradictory, and pointed out that
many of the laws are not fitted
to the cakes which are found In this
state.
Game and fish work at present Is
held back greatly by legislative diffi
culties, the officials said.
Governor Shafer defended his move
in delaying the opening of the season
and declared that it is impossible to
make one state-wide rule which will
be satisfactory to all sections because
of the varying conditions.
O. W. Roberts, state president of
the Walton organisation, declared In
his address that the state game And
ftlh commission should be “divorced
from polities” as farms possible. He
fldprin "The to
qualify through competitftk examin
ations. .
B. E. Jonas, president ot .fthe Bur
leigh county chapter, who presided
at the meeting, outlined plans for
his organisation fox'the coming year.
One of the leading projects under
consideration for. the year is the ed
ucation of children in rural and city
schools in regard to game laws and
conservation of wild life. The or
ganization also plans to sponsor one
or more rifle clubs, which may prac
tice on the new rifle range when the
memorial building Is completed.
Refuge and feeding problems wtlL.be
taken up as In the past, but on a wid
er scale.
Legislation, Mr. Jones said, will be
one of the major problems of spoils
men this year. He said he hopes for
revision of the game and fish laws at
the next session of the legislators.
A recommendation that the deer
season be opened for three days each
year was made by Mr. Roberts, who
said that this Idea probably would
decrease the lawless slaughter of deer
“because it would make every sports
man a game warden.’’
Committees appointed by Mr. Jones
follow:
Membership—E. E. LoFrance, 8. W.
CorWin, and E. G. Wanner.
Refuges—B. T. Parke, A. C. learn-

MORN’S MIND SOUND
SAYS DR. BRAIES
Medical Examiner Reports to
District Court on Study of
*' Stephan's Slayer
Lawrence Mork. slayer of Henry C.
Stephan near Sterling Monday, is of
sound mind, according to Dr. Henry
A. Brandes, who examined the man
at the direction of district court.
Dr. Brandes says, in concluding a
report to Judge Fred Jansonius of the
district court: /
“It is my opinion, after going care
fully into the man’s history and from
the findings given above, that Law
rence Mork has been, and is at pres
ent, of sound mind."
Dr. Brandes sets out the man’s his
tory in the report. Mork was born in
Barnes county. His father died in the
state hospital at Jamestown. The son
left school without finishing the sev
enth grade. He has been married
twice. The first wife died in 1918. He
carried the second in February, 1922.
They have six children, ranging from
8 years down to 6 months. All are
normal, Mork told Dr. Brandes, ex
cept the second, who is subject to
■p»iu at times.
The doctor describes Mork as of
small stature, healthy appearance,
blood pressure 117.75. His mentality is
average, says the report.
The next step now will be for the
district court to set a date for trial,
unless Mork decides to make a def
inite plea of guilty to first degree
murder.
Two Giant Motors Designed to
Drive Racing Automobile
at 300-Mile Pace
Hollywood, Calii, Sept. 20.— (JP) —
Another experiment in automobile
speed, undertaken in the hope ol
breaking the world’s record of 231.38
miles an hour Is in the making here,
with two giant motors, designed to
send a racing car 300 miles an hour,
awaiting construction of a chassis.
The power plants, 24-cylinder
Harry A. Miller specials, represent
the plans of two racing drivers of
national renown, Harlan Fengler and
Peter de Paolo, who hope to break the
late Major H. O. Segrave’s mark.
Fengler and De Paolo will make their
attempt on the sands at Daytona
Beach, Fla., next February.
Earn motor is capable of generat
ing 1,200 horsepower. One will drive
the rear wheels and toe other the
front pair, putting the most power
ful racing car ever constructed on the
Florida seashore course. It will be
more than twice as powerful as the
craft which shot to a record with
Major Segrave at the wheel.
