MONDAY, MAY 6, 1919 '-M h. '-1 *ield-g SAYS MEN ARE EAGER Unfamiliarity With Aerial Conditions and Disobedience *of Rules Cause Catastrophes. Miss Delia Fannin of 1915 Reid street, a nurse In the post hospital at the aviatipn cr.mp at Benbrook, Texas, has witnessed many dramatic scenes since her arrival in camp six weeks ago. Accidents to aviators come thick and fast, someone being hurt nearly every day. "With every crash we know that youth pays its toll to danger and to death," writes Miss Fannin in a let ter home. There are 260 aeroplanes flying in the camp from 5 a. m. to 9 p. m., according to Miss Fannin's letter. She gives an interesting glimpse of the life there and outlines some of the reasons back of the accidents. Disobedience, Cause. "One of the most common reasons for accidents as given by instructors If the disobedience of orders," writes Miss Fannin. Miss Fannin received her training as a nurs'e in the Graham hospital. Her letter follows. We have 900 men here in training and 250 aeroplanes. They are flying from 5 a. m. until 9 p. m. Most of I the cases here in the hospital are from accidents due to the crashes from the aeroplanes, %#.• Youth Pays Toll. These may be caused from misap plication of rules unfamiliarity with •peculiar aerial conditions faulty ma terial in the aeroplane careless rig ging, or sudden fright seizing the pilot, and with every crash we know that youth pays its toll to danger and tc death. In flying there are no brakes to apply and the pilot must be wide CARTHAGE David Swain a yell to do farmer residing one mile west of Carthage, was injured In a runaway Saturday mornlng about nine o'clock, and er of the city, Wednesday grave fears are entertained as to his recovery. Mr. Swain was delivering a load of loose hay to Mr. L. J. Wolfe, at the barn just off the west side of the square, an had unloaded the hay, and placed his team onto the wagon to return home. Some little loose hay was left on the hayrack, and he was throwing that off. "when one of the lines fell to the ground and the team started to run. Mr. Swain got to the ground to regain the line, and got caught between the fence and rack, the team kept running along the fence, and while he was holding onto them they swerved closer to the fence, catching him between a tel ephone pole and a corner of the rack, crushing him through the stomach and bowels. He was immediately taken to his home and every effort is being made to relieve his sufferings. Mr. and Mrs. C. A.

The landing plane Is one going at a much higher rate of speed than the one just starting up, therefore the pilot must not misjudge his start and thus be- overtaken by a plane that is pow erless to avoid the crash. Must Keep Well Apart. Machines passing in the same direc tion should have at least fifty yard* to insure safety against crashes and those approaching should have an In terval of one hundred and fifty yards between them. When the cadets enter upon their training, they are given a course to follow by their instructor, for accord ing to the rales of the air, each plane has its course and If that route is kept, collision with another plane un der normal conditions will not occur. One of the most common reasons for accidents as given by instructors is disobedience of orders at a certain speed or height, so many loops, or dives or whatever the maneuver may be can be made if the pilot disregards and adds another loop, the conse quences may prove fatal. Cross Winds Fatal. Another reason given for accidents in landing in a cross wind, such land ing frequently causes the plane to turn completely over and pinning the pilot under the heavy engine. Ac cording to flight commanders the pi lot loses control of his engine and makes a frantic effort to right. The plane fails the first time then lapses into unconsciousness and the plane guides itself to earth. The method adopted by an air plane when left to its own choice of landing is to follow the Hne of least resistance, the en gine with its ponderous weight and the engine, the wings, and helpless pilot swings to earth at a rate so rapid that life is snuffed out before the body touches the ground.

What is to be done? The answer is easy. Eat less meat, eat coarse, plain food, with plenty of vegetables, drink plenty of water between meals, and take an uric acid solvent after meals for a while, such as Anuric (double strength), obtainable at almost any drug store. It was first discovered by Dr. Pierce. Most every one troubled with uric acid finds that Anuric dissolves the uric acid as bot water does engar.

The allied printing trades and organized labor, of which the printing trades are a part, have protested, along with the publishers themselves, against a regu lation which not only will cripple one of the greatest industries in America —and certainly tlie greatest force for popular education and entertainment that we have—but will, in the case of a vast number of worthy and patriotic periodicals, result in absolute ruin to Heavy, heavy hangs over your head.
