I.OS ANGELES. Cal., Sept. 30. The
navy dirigible bauoon C-6 became lost
in a dense fog toaay while proceedipg
from San Diego to San Pedro to take
part in some fleet maneuvers and
crashed into a mountain peak in the
outskirts of Hollywood, spilling the
iar and its crew of five men about
2t)U feet down Laurel canyon. Fur
The injured were Lieutenant Gor
don G. .McDonald. 28, pilot, both an
kles broken and badly bruised: Lieu
tenant (junior grade) L. A. .Pope, 25,
back wrenched; Eugene Kry, 32, chief
machinist's mate, cut about the head
and body and badly bruised; Ralph
Hartman, chief quartermaster, cuts
and bruises. Ensign Joseph H. Gow
iii was badly shaken up but unhurt.
Dense For 1-lneountrrrd.
According to Lieutenant McDonald,
the dirigible left San Diego early this
morning and while proceeding at an
elevation of about 1800 feet, encoun
tered a dense fog. Because of the
fog, the crew became confused and
finally descended to sight landmarks.
Lieutenant McDonald said he had
recognized Hollywood and then head
ed for San Pedro, when the peak ap
peared. The car crashed into the mountain
top, breaking the fastenings and
tearing a huge hole in the gas bag.
The crash tore the car loose from its
cables and it crashed down the moun
tain side about 200 feet before it
lodged, the shock rendering its oc
Balloon Completely Wrecked.
Persons living nearby saw the bal
loon and heard the crash and went
to the rescue. The men were found
covered with debris and suffering
from their injuries.
According to a member of the crew
the C-6 contained 170,000 cubic feet
of gas which escaped without explod
ing. The balloon was 200 feet long.
It was completely wrecked. The gas
chamber fell on trees.
BALLOON WRKCK P INSCRIBED
Gondola Hiding Peak Declared
lir-t Intimation of Da user.
SAN DIEGO. Cal.. Sept. 30. The
manner in which the United States
naval dirigible C-6 was wrecked early
today on a mountain peak near Hol
lywood was described here tonight
by Eugene Fry, chief machinist's
mate, who was in the wreck and es
caped with injuries so slight that
he was ablo to return here.
"The first intimation we had of
our danger," said Fry. "was when the
bottom of the condola struck the
peak. The impact yanked the sus
pension cables loose and sent us cat
apulting over the mountain and down
the side of a 200-foo: ct.nyon. Lieu
tenant McDonald had the presence
of mind to pull the rip cord which
caused the -7000 cubic feet of gas in
the bag to escape with a terrible
roar. I remembered nothing else un
til I was picked up."
According to word received here the
dirigible is a total loss. It was 193
feet long and equipped with two 150
horsepower Hispano-Suiza motors and
was valued at $150,000. The C-6 was
accompanied north from North Is
land by the blimp D-1S. The pilot of
that craft, fearing that the fog would
cause trouble in a trip to sea, turned
about near Los Angeles and returned
here later today. It was announced
that it would leave tomorrow to take
part in the hunt for battleships and
destroyers in the war game of the
fleet and aircraft.

SALEM. Or., Sept. 30. (Special.)
That much of the land included in
the proposed Roosevelt bird refuge
in Harney county is adapted to the
production of bumper crops and is not
a devastated area as contended by
some supporters of the measure, was
the statement made here today by
Frank Davey, member of the Marion
county delegation in the state legis
lature. "There is a little bunch of grain
stacked in the extreme southeast
corner of the new pavilion at the
fair grounds that, every voter-in Ore
gon ought to see," said Mr. Davey.
"It would serve as a brilliant illum
ination on a question which is to be
decided at the polls next November.
The grain was grown by C. B. Aus
mus, who has lived inside the mean
der lines of Malheur lake in Harney
county and on lands included in the
proposed bird refuge.
"Mr. Ausmus is in the heart of the
big area which Mr. Finley and his
society wish to have the state of Ore
gon surrender to the national gov
ernment without compensation.
Among the pleas advanced by Mr.
Finley is that the entire territory
of 30.000 acres or more is a barren
alkali waste, non-productive of agri
cultural crops and of no value except
as nesting places for water fowl.
"The grain which Mr. Ausmus has
brought here for exhibition is an elo
quent contradiction of the claim. The
oats, not ripe when gathered, stand
more than five feet tall, with well
filled heads, while the wheat and
other cereals and grasses are propor
tionately fine. And Mr. Ausmus is
not by any means the only farmer in
side the meander lines of that pre
serve. There are several of them. As
an illustration Mr. Ausmus opens and
closes 13 gates in getting out to his

He says baldness Is increasing rap

one man in every hundred ever thinks
about his hair at all, except to comb
it two or three times a day. If it falls
out he looks anxiously at the falling
hair and then promptly forseta it
until the next time he uses a comb.
A man will give the utmost atten
tion to hid t .h. because he knows
that when trouble arises he will bav
more trouble and prooably lose his
teeth if he doesn't go to a dentist
promptly. But his hair doesn't ache,
it just, gradually dies, and when it is
nearly gone and the roots are dead
he anxiously tries a dozen different
remedies at once and then resigns
himself to baldness.
