The German motorless airplane

gliders yesterday when Pilot Hent

war, made a sustained flight for two
hours and ten seconds in an ordi
nary engineless monoplane at
height of 1150 meters, or more than
3500 feet, landing six miles from
the starting place. This definitely
establishes a successful motorless
flight and opens hitherto undreamed-of
possibilities for the mas
tery of the air.
The majority of the inventors are
hardly more than boys. The most
successful gliders in the Gersfield
competition, wherein there were a
dozen entrants, were produced by
students of the technical schools at
Hanover and Darmstadt.
Most Aviators During War.
Despite their youth, the majority
served as aviators in the war, ob

and air currents whereby engineless
flights have been made possible.
Many of the planes entered were
ordinary monoplane types, with a
short wing-spread, light fuselage
and ordinary tail.
The pilot sits on the fuselage

levers and wires. OtHer entries,
however, are fantastic inventions

The flights were started from Was

hills. Some machines were hurtled
through the air, getting a flying
start along -a narrow-gauge trol

hilltop where a side slip into an air
pocket might crash the uncontrol

GLIDER ALOFT TWO HOCKS
German Flier Performs Record
GERSFELD, Germany, Aug. '20.
(By ths Associated Press.) Herr
Hentzen, a student flyer of the Han
over technical school, late Saturday
afternoon, in the glider contests on
the Rhone mountains, established a
glider record by remaining in the
air two hours and ten seconds.
Hentzen used the same single
deck sail plane in which another
student named Maertens previously
had made a flight of 66 minutes. He
reached an altitude of 100 meters
above the summit of the Wasser
kuppe, which is at an elevation of
950 meters, and later mounted to a
height of 200 meters, which he
maintained throughout his uniform
flight, flying with a wind velocity
of from seven to nine miles.
When the wind subsided Hentzen
attempted a straightaway flight in
an effort to capture a special prize
of 100,000 marks. The glide landed
at the same spot where Maertens

Two large fokker double-decker sail

Their surface measurements are 2

German sail plane experts are en

Heijtzen and Maertens. They de
clare that while the French records
at the Clermont-Ferrand gliding
contests are being calculated in

Are Taken by Burglar.
A burglar who entered the home
of G. E. Weller, 1252 East Broadway,
Friday night probably was furnish
ing a home. He got away with an
expensive and bulky cabinet phono
graph, a sewing machine, a lace cen
terpiece, u silk dress and an old
shirt that had many patches.
Although Mr. Weller had several
silk shirts in the same drawer with
the one stolen, the burglar pre

The Welters did not report the
burglary until Sunday night. En

MERIT SYSTEM PREVAILS
Diplomatic Posts Not All Given
for Political Service.
WASHINGTON, D. C. (By the
Associated Press.) Long strides to
ward removing diplomatic posts
from rewards for political service
have been made during President
Harding's administration, according
to a report issued by the committee
on foreign service of the National
Civil Service Reform league.
The report says the first year
"seems to indicate that an earnest
effort has been made to retain the
services of men of experience and
to appoint to diplomatic posts per
sons with qualifications in diplo
macy." The committee reports that five
of the nine ambassadors appointed
by President Harding were men
with previous experience in diplo
macy. Six of the 30 ministers now
serving in the diplomatic corps, the
committee found, were appointed on
the basis of their experience and
eight were men appointed during
previous administrations, but were
retained by President Harding.
Four ambassadors, 16 ministers,
two agents and consuls-general and
one minister resident and consul
general appointed by President
Harding, the report says, were per
sons without any previous diplo
"While many of the 23 appoint
ments made of persons without pre
vious diplomatic experience operat

of. such appointments is largely
abated by the present administra

the records of the first year of other
administrations. For this record.
President Harding and Secretary
Hughes are ' to be commended.
President Harding is furthermore
deserving of commendation in that
he had selected for secretary of

Executive Secretary the City Club.
After two weeks of invigorating
outing spent at Camp Montague on
the west slope of the Three Sisters
nearly all of the 1922 Mazama party
had returned to Portland Sunday
or this morning laden with pictures
of their exploits and proudly dis
playing summit badges.
n?, w hroken at 6:30 Satur-
Aa,. mnmiti; dunnage was packed
and the five-mile hike made to Frog
Camp to meet the, caravan o
for Eugene. Seventy-five people
returned from the mountains yester
day. During the entire outing 87
individuals enjoyed Mazama hospi
tality. The finai official climbs were
made on Friday and the first real
anxiety felt by, the camp for its
hiking expeditions was occasioned
when a group of six, consisting of
Richard W. Montague, Henry J. ma
Ale, Mr. and Mrs. Edward T. Tag

main party climbing tne JYLiaaie

dense fog which settled over tne
mountains at 3 o'clock.
Trail Crossed In Darkness.
In descending '"om the Mi,dd,le
Sister they had crossed the trail in
the darkness and fog and had pro
ceeded to the taller timber before
the decision was made to return to
the east. After an hour's tramp the
party had decided to bivouac for the
night, provided that Benedict after
a 15 minutes' scouting could not
find the trail. Just as President
Montague had completed all his
plans for a cozy bivouac shelter by
a big log a shout from Benedict in
dicated that the trail had been
found. Guided by the searching

With the exception of Mr. Newell

The youngest mountain climber
in camp was Robert Penland, aged

66 years. Each qualified as Ma

day. A light rain fell in the morn

afternoon and the dinner in honor
of President Montague, when every
one donned his or her remaining
best clothes, was a great success
Summit badges were awarded in
the evening to those qualifying.

article for the Mazama annual on
his observations of wild flowers in
a. three-mile radius of Camp Mon

50 species of wild flowers in the vi
cinity of the Three Sisters," said
Mr. Biddle. "Flowers do not grow
as profusely in this distict as in
the northern Cascades, but some re
markable types were found. I was
surprised to find blooms at an ele

FLAG SMUT IS SPREADING
Western Farmers Urged to Plant
Wheat Immune to Parasite.
WASHINGTON, D. C. (By the As
sociated Press.) Farmers in the
mid-western wheat fields where the
spread of flag smut among the
crops is causing increased loss in
the harvest, are urged by experts of
the agriculture department to plant
varieties next fall which are im
mune to the parasite or more highly
resistant. The region adjacent to
St. Louis in Illinois and Missouri has
been found to contain an area of
bout 799 square miles in which
spores are spreading rapidly, where,
1921, only 72 square miles were
infected. The department experts
believe that attempts at eradication
are likely to tan ana tnat cnange
in planting is the only means of
checking the spread.
The damage wrought by the smut
amounts to a large figure In Aus
tralia, where conditions are similar
to thosa in some parts of this coun
try, fields sometimes show losses as
high as 20 per cent, it is said, and
the infection is, in general, like that
of bunt or stinking smut in our
own wheat-growing regions. In the
two states where this smut haa been
found parts of fields nave shown
losses as high as 20 per cent, but
it is doubtful if field. losses there
have ever been as much as 5 per
cent of the crop.
A number of varieties of wheat
grown in this area have been found
not to take the disease at all or to
be highly resistant to it. Of the
soft winter wheats, Red Rock, Ston

sistant if not immune, the depart
ment states. Numerous other strains
and varieties have shown high re
sistance, but some varieties that
have been very popular in this dis
trict have been found to take flag
infection very readily.
Investigations indicate the prob
ability that the spores of the disease
are carried by the wind from field
to field, a department circular de
clares, and for this reason it is
doubtful if any quarantine measures
can be effective in preventing its
spread. There is a strong- indica
tion that the growing of resistant
varieties is the lease expensive and
most dependable method of prevent
ing loss. It is added. Crop rotation
also will help to keep the disease
trader control, for, unless a variety
is completely resistant, growing
wheat after wheat will increase the
infection in a field.
Farmers within or near the in
fected area are urged to consult
with tlinir county agents or state
experiment station and arrange to
get supplies of these recommended
varieties for sowing in the fall.
