Ormer Locklear. noted "stout" aviator, and Lieut. Milton Elliott, his aide, were killett last night when their plane crashed from a distance at 1080 feet. Locklear was engaged, with Lieut. Elliott in performing a feat for a moving picture concern. At a distance' of loot feet in the afr he was given a signal by the mo tion picture director and started into a nose dive. A battery of search lights were playing on the machine and fireworks were being set off zrom tne plane by ueut. isiitott- When he dropped to within 200 feet of the earth Locklear was seen at tempting to straighten hCs plane.

Locfclear went into exhibi tion flying, touring the country 'and performing his famous- feats in a large number of cities, with nothing approaching a serious accident. Iiient. Elliott, fellow officer at Bar ron field, with IJenL Shirley Short, were Locklear's pilots, flying with him in a motion picture thriller made at Los Angeles in which Lockiear was cast in the hero's role.

ISt Invited to White House. Then George White doesn't get an Invitation to the white house which, instead of ignoring the unwisdom or Mr. White's remarks, takes him to task and keeps him outside the pre cinct of the presidential sanction. The truth of the matter is that Mr White wasn't trying to give an im pression of divergence between the views of the president and those of governor Cox, but to emphasize that the Democratic nominee as the leader of thelpariy is doing his own think ing and that such of his views as may square with the president's are the result of conviction and not presi dential coercion. The white house Is a good deal more toucny about these things than Is necessary in a politi cal campaign, as will be clearly demonstrated when the speech of ac ceptance written by governor Cox is made public.

This was officially estimated at 3300.000.000. Thus the people will pay one third of the increased wages for railroad employes in taxes. Cot Bill I on and a Half. With the amount gained by the car riers this year and the Ualms of the lines for compensation under their contracts with the railroad adminis tration, the roads will have cost the government approximately a billion and a half dollars since December 28. 1S17. Operation of the roads after Sep tember 1. under the new rates will yield, according to thn experts, an annual return of about 31.5SO.OOO.OOO. They believed the increased freight revenues would total 31.300.000.000, and the income from passenger traf fic 3283.000.000. Their estmates. It was explained, were based on the as sumpton that intrastate rates would be increased correspondingly. iseea for increases in intrastate rates was set forth in a report for warded today to state railway and public utility commissions by the three state commissioners who sat with the interstate commerce com mission during the hearings and con sideration of the rate case. "Wont Raise Prlee." Railroad rate increases authorized by the interstate commerce commis sion "should have no appreciable ef fect on prices of the vast majority of things which the ordinary consumer purchases, according to an analysis or tne possime eixeet or the ad vanced rates, made public tonight by W. J. Lauck. economist for the railroad labor organizations. He as serted that "there would have been no occasion for so large an advance lx the roads had been better man aged, made free of "water in caol talication and were "not themselves victims of profteers to the extent of 3500,000.000 a year In purchase of supplies ana eouipmenx. "Still, there is no occasion for alarm in the prospect of an addition of a billion and a half dollars to the annual transportation bill of the country. the statement said, "nxo- vided this item is not multlDlied four or live times oexore it is presented to the people for payment. For in stance, by no possible computation can the increased freight rates be made to justify an increase of one cent per pound in the price of wheat or five cents per pair is the price of shoes, ox ten cents in the once of clothes, or one fourth of one cent in the price of a loaf of broad. Hence the public should be informed and the forces of the government should be on guard to see that no unjusti fiable burden is imposed on the peo ple." VANISHED OFFICER HAD ASSUMED NAME Chicago.

"A BRANCH telephone exchange to cost 3500.000 or more soon will be an imperative need for El Paso." C. E. Stratton. general man ager of Tri-state Telephone company, said Monday These plans are now in course of preparation, but because of the great amount of work that must be done before beginning con struction of the building to house the exchange, it is probable that actual operations cannot Joe started before tfia. This preliminary work, Mr Strat ton added, includes taking a detailed census, laying much additional cable unaergrouna ana readjustment oi cable already down.

Will Cost More Than 50U00. Surveys for such an exchange, made before the present high price era, placed the estimated expenditure at 3400,000, Mr Stratton cays. To carry out the same plans today will cost well over the 3500.000 estimate, he believes. That additional facilities will be required by El Paso in the near fu ture ts emphasized. Mr. Stratton says, by the fact that the present ex change has nearly reached Its ca pacity. More than 12,000 subscribers are served through it now. and while there is still room for some expan sion It is so slight as to make the additional exchange almost impera tive. Actual construction work will be preceded by the taking a house count and telephone census, and making surveys tor cables to be laid and changed. 161,000 CITY'S POPULATIONS NEXT DECADE Telephone and Street Car Companies Believe Big Growth Is Coming T?L PASO'S population will exceed , 100.000 is 1030, in the opinion of neaos oi puouc utilities corpora tions whose estimates, arrived at after the expenditure of considerable time and money, are not tinted wltn "hometown optimism." The El Paso Electric Railway company estimate that El Pao will have n population of 101,000 In 1930. Its estimate for 1920 lightly exceeded 81,000. The Tri-State Telephone com pany estimates that the popula tion In 1930 will be In excess of 1G1.0O0, after having hit almost exactly the 1920 population by estimating the figure at 8XQO0, The estimate was prepared by II. C Brown, Bel system engineer, who has done similar work for his company In practically every city in which the Bell lines have been placed. Figures Based On Fact The accuracv of the estimates of both corporations is a matter of dol lars ana cents, xor tne entire aavance building program Is determined bv the estimates thus prepared. In se curing advance figures, both com panies try to avoid both underesti mating and overestimating, but con servatism is Insisted on. In the last two decades, BI Paso has twice more than doubled Its population. With 16,000 people In 1900, it jumped to 39,000 in 1910, and to 8&O0O In 1920.

(By the As sociated Press.) All advices to day indicate that the situation in Poland, from the Polish-allied stand point, is approaching a crisis. The Polish delegation which went to Baranovltchl to negotiate an ar mistice not only failed to obtain terms from the Russians, but was sent back to Warsaw by the soviet authorities, who demanded that the emissaries obtain a mandate to take up peace negotiations. This will de lay even the beginning of the armis tice negotiations until tomorrow at the earliest.
