WINE AND WEATHER
MAKE WET SUBJECT
"There were 32 drunk3 In one place
at one time on Palafox street tonight
by actual, count of noses," was the
statement made to the Journal over the
telephone late last night by a man who
said he had heard about the town
"going dry."
The sheriffs office was callett con
cerning the report but no information
was obtainable concerning the "party
or any roudiness by its members, there
fore the count is not vouched for a3
official. However, deviation to a dis
cussion of the weather is always
permissible-and from a weather stand
point, at least, the town was "wet"
SANDPIPER IN
WITH SEAPLANES
F-5 Flying Boats Will Be Over
hauled Before Going South
With Atlantic Fleet
Five large seaplanes of the F-5 type
iSrrTved- in Pensacola yesterday morn
ing coming from x Tampa. One of
the same type had arrived on Friday
and the six will be here about three
weeks during which time they will bo
completely overhauled. They carry
a crew of thirty men, three men and
two officers to each boat. The boats
travel with the U. S. S. Shawmut as
tender and tho U. S. S. Sandpiper as
auxiliary tender, the crews quartering
on the Shawmut. The planes are
fuelled and all repairs are made from
the Shawmut and .Sandpiper, at sea
or In port. Independent of air-stations.
The Sandpiper ca'me In yesterday and
the Shawmut is expected today.
These machines are planes of the
air detachment of the Atlantic fleet
and the air detachment is operating
with the fleet in active service opera
tions.
The (trip here was made directly
from New York, and was entirely un
eventful except for a northeast wind,
about 43 knots, between Savannah and
Fernandlno where low clouds forced
low flying. The boats had been ordered
to Savannah in connection with the
southern comercial congress.
. The trip from Tampa was tiresome,
about four hours and ten minutes,
through heavy fog and clouds. From
here the detachment will go south on
a trip with a fleet through the "West
Indies to Trinidad, along the north
coast of South America to Coloa.
Panama and thence back to Guantana
mo for operations with the fleet during
regular winter manueuvers.
Captain George W. Steel, Jr., squad
ron commander and Lieutenant-commander
Bruce G. Leighton are in com
mand of the detachment.
