HIVE THIS YEAR PARTY OF SCIENTISTS SENT THERE ARE FORTUNATE IN HAVING DISPLAYS JUNEAU Alaska.—Volcanic peaks in the far southwestern corner of Alaska are in eruption this summer evidently for the benefit of a party of scientists sent by the National Geo graphic Society to study Mount Kat T mai, the greatest of Alaska's smok ing mountains, and its "Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes." Persons who have returned recent ly from the volcanic country to the westward said Shishaldin Peak, ' Unimak Island, in the Aleutian chain, was in eruption recently. They also reported it was believed Mount Bav loff on the southwestern Alaskan • mainland, also had spouted as the about the summit was coal on snow black. When the party of scientists left Ancorage, Alaska, on their way to the Katmai country, they said they believed there was little likelihood of eruption this summer and declared they were certain there was absolute ly no danger attached to the investi gation. Katmai's last big "blow off" was in June, 1912. The party of twenty-six scientists is headed by Professor Robert A. Griggs of the University of Ohio and from Carnegie Institute. They are planning to make observa tions of the botanical, biological and geological effects of the 1912 erup tion. an some are In 1913 Professor Griggs headed a party of scientists to Katmai and re turned with 'the announcement that the crater was the largest on the globe and that near Katmai lay a great valley whose floor was dotted with thousands of mouths vomiting gray vapory gas and smoke, valley, Professor Griggs named "The Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes." Instead of ten thousand it is said there are literally millions of smok ing vents. Congress recently set aside "The | This -Aw Your Dollar's Opportunity Your dollar's opportunity is now, today!

' Thrift Is Patriotism Saving is a form of serving. It is one of the biggest forms of national service—service to your country.

Paris.—Sentences were delivered in the case known as the "Laon inform ers" after a trial of more than sixty days. Of the twenty-eight persons accused, eight were condemned to death, two of them being women ; three others were condemned to death by default. Six were acquitted and the remainder re ceived sen fences of from one to twenty years' imprisonment. The charge against the accused was denouncing compatriots to the German authorities during the occupation of Laon. In many cases the hiding places of French soldiers, who had es caped the German advance, were point ed out, with tlie result that a large number of soldiers were executed.

Ha NOISE BARS SLEEP Airplane Factories Are Not Good Neighbors. Franc« Warns U. S.: Don't Build Plants Near Human Habitation. Paris.—With the certainty that avia tion Is quickly to become one of the big industries throughout the entire world, Paris has a little warning for all of her sister cities of America and every other country. The warning Is this: En,act Imme diately, either state, municipal or na tional, legislation prohibiting the erec tion of airplane factories anywhere within hearing distance of where hu man beings have to live an,d sleep. Otherwise, said human beings won't be able to sleep and will be driven In no time at all either Into their graves or some far-away sanitarium. Everyone knows how much rumpus an airplane makes when it Is flying thousands of feet overhead. Well, every airplane motor before it Is mounted has to be tested, and to be tested It is attached to a huge bench or platform and run continuously at top speed, with hundreds of horse power back of It, for at least twenty four hours and sometimes forty-eight. During that period of time nobody living wlthiA hearable distance can possibly sleep. At Suresnes, where motors are test ed for forty-eight hours, it has been necessary to close an adjacent school. At Puteaux the inhabitants declare they have not slept for months. At Courbevoie the city council has resigned as a means of protest. At Cllchy the city has bought a large tract of land for the erection of a mu nicipal hospital. Airplane factories during the war installed themselves In the vicinity and the medical authori ties now refuse to let the city build Its hospital in such a death-insuring lo cality. The department of the Seine has been forced In the interest of public health to take measures to stop the airplane factories and get them moved into more isolated localities. SOUTHWEST'S HARVEST ENDS "Sanest" in History Is Boast—Army of 125,000 Men Employed Business Men Help. Kansas City, Mo.—The southwest's harvest, characterized as the "sanest" in history, is over. Higher wages were paid them ever before, and there was practically no radical agitation. An army numbering at times 125,000 men, advanced with the harvest from southern Oklahoma through Kansas and into Nebraska, earning an aver age of 00 cents an hour. Federal officials say about 100 al leged agitators were arrested on va grancy charges, but so far there has not been a single complaint of sa botage. College students and returned sol diers predominated among the har vesters. The response was so large that it was unnecessary for side-line harvesters—hoy scouts and high school students—to go into the fields, al though many business men In small Kansas towns joined "twilight" har vest gangs. . -.-*-f Enter Stomach Pump, Dry Time Necessity 99 u i Î Pittsburgh, Pa.—Among oth i er things that will likely prove I popular now don't forget the f stomach pump.
