Similar clubs have been formed else where, but Los Angeles offers oppor tunities for ballooning not possessed by any other part of the world, par ticularly in winter, and the new organ isation proposes to take advantage of this is advertising California as a ■winter resort among a wealtny class ot people. , , The new club will be formed purely as a sportsmen's organization, but per sons who have an interest in balloon ing but who have not made ascents will be eligible to membership. It will not enter the field of scientific experiment, and hence will r.ot conflict with the Aero club of California. Meetings to further the organization will be held this week in both Los Angeles and Pas adena. .. . The "balloon fever" has spread widely about Los Angeles since the first of the year and nearly forty persons have made ascents. A great many others ■who have no desire to go up in a bal loon are nevertheless Interested and are co-operating in forming the club, which will probably be given the title of the Ixjs Angeles Balloon club. Dick Ferris has promised the new or ganization the use of his racing bal loons, the United States and American, and the new "made in Southern Cali fornia" balloon, the Los Angeles, just finished by Frank Leroyzez, will also be available. Eastern Balloonists Coming In addition to planning pleasure as censions and arranging a place where ascents may be made at any time the club will gather statistics regarding the advantages of ballooning in South ern California. Several eastern balloon ists of note have written to Los Angeles men already asking for information about making ascents here in winter, which is uncomfortable and almost im possible anywhere else in the country In the winter months. "There will be twenty eastern bal loons out here next winter," said Roy Knabenshue in discussing the object of a balloon club. St Louis, Chicago. Indianapolis and other eastern cities with more restricted opportunities for ballooning have ar ranged special facilities for the sport. When this is done in Los Angeles an nouncement of the possibilities will be sent to eastern aeronautical enthusiasts and to others abroad ns well. Members of the Aero club of Califor nia, who started out mainly on the atronef or heavier-than-air proposition, are now infected with the balloon germ, and at the meeting of the club Tuesday night will discuss the merit? of the proposed balloon club. Several who have never been up in a balloon hope to take a trip in Dick Ferris' American following Its use as a captive at the aeronautical show at the Fiesta stadium April 24 to 2.V Trade Extension Favored— The Japanese government will aid in every ■way possible the Chicago Association of commerce in its trade extension program on Chicago day at the Alaska- Yukon-Pacific exposition, which occurs June 12, according to T.

Impure Blood Thoroughly Cleansed Relieved of All Impurities Through tbe Uie of Stuart's Calcium Wafer* The blood is a thick, opaque fluid of a rich, red hue in the arteries and a purplish blue in the veins. It derives its color from numerous small bodies floating In it which are called red corpuscles. If the blood be examined under a microscope the red corpuscles will appear as thin, circular disks, floating in a transparent, nearly color less fluid. These red corpuscles number 5,000,000 to the cubic centimeter, but it often happens that they become very much ■ diminished in number, a condition known as anaemia or leukoaemia. There are also other circular bodies in the blood known as white corpuscles, but which are much less numerous than the red. The red corpuscles are the stimulat ing and animating elements of the blood. They absorb oxygen in their passage through ihe lungs and convey it to the tissues of the body, where, combining with food elements absorbed from the stomach, it evolves animal heat.
