'AIR FANS' FORM
BALLOON CLUB
ENTHUSIASTS ARE PLANNING
ORGANIZATION
All Persons Who Are Interested In
"King of Sports" Will Be Eli.
gible for Member
ship
A sportsmen's ballooning club will be
organized this week by Los Angeles,
Pasadena and other t'outhern Califor
nia men interested for the purpose ofi
promoting the "king ot sports" and of
advertising thi3 section of the country.
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. Tanaka, Jap
anese consul at Seattle, who is in
Chicago. It is the intention to meet
the special train of Chicago business
men in Portland, accompany it to Seat
tle and there arrange a meeting with
leading Japanese citizens both from
Japan and the northwest, to discuss
ways and means of promoting trade be
tween Chicago and the Orient.

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.

erly filter the blood of its impurities,
or whenever constipation occurs, the

comprehensive that only an extensive
piece of ground well located will be
adequate to meet requirements.
The desire for a children's theater
and symphony hall make It Impera
tive that the new building be centrally
located and galleries and colleges tor
art training, which it is proposed to
incorporate, make it necessary that a
correspondingly large amount of land
be obtained. >.
