(By the Associated Press.)
Stanislaus H&usner sailed today the

Since 5 o'clock last night, eastern
standard time, there has oeen tu- word
of his progress. He had no wireless
tnd the only possibility of news of
him rested in the few ships plowing
s he waters over which hi.; huge Bel
lanca monoplane charted Its course.
But there was no worry. This aft
ernoon. perhaps, if he is unsighted
or unreported, there may be occasion
for concern.

At 3 o’clock yesterday afternoon
his monoplane was reported seen over
Halifax. Two hours later the plane
wax observed over Sydney, Nova

lowed the coast line until he reached
the tip of Cape Breton, at which
point he is believed to have pointed

would be counted there.
Early reports trickling into the
capital from ail over the State indi

turning out unprecedented thousands
of ballot castors. Also it was indicated
that the voting was being dorse un

New York, June 4 ( AP) - Samuel
W. Weston, epert on newspaper op

time since 1929. advertising had shown
a slight upward trend, and he ex
pressed the opinion that this was a
hopeful sign for forthcoming general
improvement.
One reason expressed for this out
look was that in April classified ad
vertising volume started distinctly up

months of the year.
“This has been followed in a leaser
degred 1 by total advertising,'' he said.
"If this index: works In the future as
it . has in the past, It indicates there
will be -a slow but steady increase in
total advertising volume." -
It’ was Mr. Weston’s belief that in

been reached, and that advertising
underwent a flattening out process
