from all corners of the world to
accompusn tne reat.
Only twice in history has the
restless stretch of water riven
way to the efforts of aquatic stars.

an Englishman, crosses from Uov

The distance across tho rhan-
nel at the narrowest point. Dover
ro tape uris TsezJ a French head
land in the Pas e Calais, is about
20 miles but swimmers are com
pelled to sig-zag in combatting
the waves and tides.
The second successful attempt
to cross the channel was made
September 6, 1911, by William r.
Burpess, and Englishman by
birth, but a naturalized French
man. Fifteen times previously he
had attempted to make the peril
ous swim. On the sixteenth he
swam from South Foreland, Dov
r, to Le Chatelat, a little village
two miles east of Cape Grls Nez,
in 22 hours and 35 minutes. He
covered about 60 miles.
Burgess feat was considered
even more wonderful than that of
Captain Webb, in' that he met
with the most adverse conditions.
In mid-channel he was stung se
verely by a jelly-fish and became
ill and was ready to abandon the
swim. When but a short distance
of the French coast he met the
ebbing tides and battled for three
hours before reaching slack wa-j
ten ! I
Two other men said to have ac-1
complished the feat i could not
prove their claims. Captain Da
vis Dalton, of New York, declared
he swam the channel in August,
1890, covering 60 miles in 23
hours, 30 minutes. He claimed
to have swam the entire distance
on his back, and to have been so
blinded by salt water that his
sight was impaired for months af
terward, i ' i : ;
Sam Mahoney, of Revere Beaeh.
Mass., asserted that he swam from
Sangatee, Franee to South Fore
land, in September, 1908 but this
was not proved.
Veteran Tries Again. '
Jabez Wolfe, the veteran Eng
lish swimmer has made 21 un
successful attempts to cross and
is planning another. In Septem
ber, 190$, he arrived within sight
of the Calais pier but became ill
and was taken from the water. He
had besni in the water 23 hours.
In August of 1908, James
Mearns, Scottish swimming cham
pion, nearly lost his life in the
swim. He was ill and drowning
when rescued by friends in mid
channel. Montagu Holbein, of England,
tried seven times to cross. In
1903 he arrived within a mile ot
Dover after swimming 22 hours
21 minutes, giving up because ot
Annette Ksllerman, a native
born Australian, called the
world's greatest woman swimmer,

success. She now is a citizen of
the United States.

"In 'planting state capitalism
in the form ot concessions, the
Soviet government strengthens
large production against small
production, the advanced against

increases the quantity of products

strengthens the state regulation

to the petty bour

Plans Are Received for
New PoStoffice Addition
Plans for the new building to
be erected a few feet east of the
postoffice in Salem were , received
yesterday and ewill receive ttie
approval of Auguset HuckesBeia.
The new; building, 30 by 50
feet, will give the postoffice 1500
square feetj of working room, in
addition to the present working
space of 1350 feet.
The building will be erected
about five feet from the present
structure, fith the driveway ex
tending 4 5 feet to the east of
the new -building.
The main advantage in the new
building will be in giving the
mail workers sufficient working
room, and avoiding the necessity
ot jtarrrfngi all 'xnall ttpstklrs. . as
is done "with; the pi estsnt cramped
quarters. i- d rf "
