\ WASHINGTON, Per. 28.-<A*V—The
plac.dity with which the Pan-Amer
ican conference has been awaiting
replies from Bolivia and Paraguay
on a protocol for conciliation has

cupied Fort Vanguardia and have ad
\anced 12 miles farther into the ter
ritory over which the dispute arose.
Paraguay in it* communication to
its legation here said that ”a very
grave situation has again been ere- j
ated. because Paraguay alone cannot
avoid new fighting.”
In making public the dispatch from 1
his government. Dr. Juan V'. Ramirez,
charge d'affaires of the Paraguayan ;
legation, in a statement declared:
"This happening confirms the Para- ;
guayan contention, which has always
been held, that Bolivia never re

It is believed that considerable
pressure will be brought by the Mis
sissippi Waterways Association and
others interested in waterways and
port development to secure action
during the special session on the bill
upon which a favorable report was
rendered by the river and harbor
committee of the house at the rlo*e
of the last session. The special ses- I
sion will be devoted principally to
farm relief, and proponents of wa- 1
terways and harbor development as- (
sert that water transportation is a
necessary adjunct to farm relief and
that an effort will be made to have
the measure presented upon that
basis during the special session.
Report* from Washington indicate
that proponents of the majority of
projects included in the pending bill
are opposed to action during the
present short session, as they be
lieve that a veto by President Cool
idge would have considerable effect
in determining the policies of the
incoming administration.

And tj further lighten the burden

If the first half is not paid on or

The Brownsville city government

Many Thrilled By
Flights in Large
Plane at Airport
Soaring through the ski** ia e
ship equipped with ell the luxuries |
known to the modern traveller is a
thrill that awaits Brownsville's air
minded who choose to visit the muni
cipal airport and sign up for a ride
in the Ford all-metal tri-mjtored
transport monoplane temporarily
stationed there.
This big ship is owned by the
Kenyon Air Transport company of
Morris, Minn., J. M. Kenyon, presi
dent. and was flown here from that
northern city to remain for at least
a week.
Anyone whi has not ridden in this
ship has a real treat coming to them.
In fact they have not flown until
they take off surrounded by the
travelling luxuries that this * ig ship
affords.
Stepping through the door into the
cabin, the traveller has his choice of
heavily upholstered wicker chairs
with high backs and head-rests,
slowing one to recline in perfect
ease.
The pilot’s djmpartment ia en
closed in glass and separated from
the passenger’s quarters. Heavy
windows shut out the force of the
wind and the deafening roar of the
three motors are muffled to n mere
drone thnt is even soothing to the
nerves. These windows afford pas
sengers an excellent view of the
oountry over which they are flying,
however.
Just a bit for the specifications of
this g;ant passenger plan*1: Dimen
sions—span. 74 feet; length, 49
feet. 10 inches; wirg area, 785 square
feet; height. 12 feet. 8 inches; wheel
tread. 16 feet. 9 inches. Perform
ancs—High speed, 114 M. P. H.;
cruising speed, 96 M. P. H; stalling
speed. 65 M. P. H.: radius of action
(cruising), 570 miles (6 hours) ceil;
ing. 14,000 feet. Data—Weight,
empty, 6,100 pounds; useful load. S,
900 pounds; total weight loaded, 10,*
000 pounds; gasoline capacity, 235
gallons.
The standard equipment power
plant consists of three Wright ?20
If. P. Whirlwind engines. Propellers
are Standard Steel company's steel
propellers, and the entire plane is
built of duralumin, a non-rusting,
non-corroding, copper-aluminum al
loy as strong as steel but only one
third as heavy.
Aside from the plane’s cabin which
seats 16 persons, there is a special
compartment for baggage and a com
pletely equipped lavaBjry.
This plane is considered one of
the safest in service today, its
three motors affording tremendous
reserve power. It ia aaid that the
ship will cruise on any two motors
and land safely on one.
The personnel of the Brownsville
Herald’s editorial department' were
taken on a cruise Thursday after
noon over Brownsville. Matamoros
and immediate surrounding territory.
The ride was arranged by J. M. Ken
yon, president of the Kenyon Air
Transport company, and Le* Maul
din. manager of the municipal air
port.
Crowds of people have visited the
municipal field since the plane
larded Wednesday afternoon and
hundreds have availed themselves of
the opportunity to take a ride in the
big ship.
