reading of the ordinance extending
the boundary lines of the city.
After this was over, the Mayor in
his usual dignity directed those
having business with the city dads
to draw near, and as the special
order of business was the hearing
of those protesting the extension
of the city limits,, which was also
the matter of foremost interest,

Stewart Reviews Tragedy
In Life of Albert B. Fall
Central Press Staff Writer
Washington, Nov. 6.—At first
thought one hardly appreciates the
tragedy in the life story of Albert
B. Fall for all it really means.
A poor, stricken old man!—
ruined and in dishonor on the brink
of the grave, after lording it
among the mightiest in the landl
— w hom it is impossible not to pity,
no matter what he may have done!
This comes readily enough to
But there is worse.
Fall takes his place among Am
erica's national villains. A histor
scoundrel! The first culprit ev
er found guilty of a felony com
mitted as a member of the cabinet
itself! A unique crime! Children
books, after Fall has been dead for
boos, after Fall has been dead for
generations. The perpetration of
an enormity comparable to Bene
dict Arnold's.
We think of Fall as sitting, in
his wheel chair, in the shadow of
conviction for bribe-taking, in his
high office, because of his sale of
vast stores of government oil to
Edward L. Doheny, for a beggarly
$100,000 payment into his own poc
Which is quite true, literally.
But for the purposes of the story
it is more dramatic to think of him
as sitting where he does because
of a fight he had with a stranger
who crossed his path in the most
casual way—but a fateful meeting
and a fateful quarrel they proved
to be, for Albert B. Fall.
Cari McGee was an Iowa lawyer,
who had come to New Mexico for
the sake of his consumptive wife's
Withou ta practice in his new
environment, and realizing that it
would be slow work to build
up, he was looking about for some
thing, with an income in it, to do.
Fall owned a small newspaper,
picked up in the course of sorne
business transaction, which, being
useless to him, he wanted to sell.
Mutual acquaintances brought
the pair together.
If Fall could have read the fut
ure! but he lacked the gift 04
second sight.
A bargain was made,

Having meanwhile had time to
look about him, he was not favor

New Mexico politics. Polks do say

Mighty Plane Arrives
Shortly after four watchers saw
a thin line against the sunset. If
was *be . mighty Russian
P lane : Wlt h l ts body strangely
Tlat, its wings strangely long. On
e ither side was a Ford plane, the
Curtiss field escorts.
, . , we * r d powerful-looking
am ' passed over the crowd a deep
roar burst from the multitude, and
band struck up the Budyenny
march. The Land of the Soviets
circled to the open field, far from
the welcomers. Some of them had
been waiting since eleven o'clock.
They could not wait any longer.
Clmbing over and under fences,
bursting through the line of police,
thousands of men, women and chiL
dren ran shouting and waving their
red flags, toward the still rapidly
moving plane. Police took to their
motorcycles, blew all their whistles
and their sirens, and arrived fai
time to keep the crowd from press
ing in against the propellers. As
the plane maneuevered into the
hangar, the crowd followed close
ly, undaunted by a stinging sand
storm from the propeller draft.
Flags of Two Republics,
Shestakov placed the American
flag and the red flag together at
the front of the place. There was
defeaning applause, and at least
20 different groups started to sing
the International in different keys.
It was one great amorphous shout.
