Ccpper River Ice Fields Vis-
v. ited By Presidential Party
; All Are Enthralled By
Departure Froni Cordova
Made Shortly After Re
. turn Frorn Side Trip
, , CORDOVA, Alaska, Jolj 20.
: By the Associated Press)
SUndlng beside the Copper Riyer,
President Harding today saw one
: of the grandest sights of Alaska.
i; A quarter mile away; on the
opposiu shore, towered the mas
Its Ice cliffs of Child Glacier.
. resplendent In their whiteness and
In their delicate tints of blue
and emerald, f
;4 Mote iWpresslTe than the glac
iers' colore, howerer. were the
manifestations of iu aetlrity and
mysterious power, as huge por
tions of it. some weighing hund
reds of tons, broke away with a
roar like that of heayy thunder,
and plunred Into the rlTer , soon
4 to be dlesolred Into, water again
after hundreds of years in a fros
' en 'state. .
Childs Glacier, is one of the
largest lire glaciers In Alaska
for Chat matter In the world
and although the members of the
i president's party hare seen scores
of glaciers, the one they . beheld
today excelled all others.
T I Railroad Company Host
i 1 ,The . president and the other
members of the parf, except Mrs.
Harding, jjho. remained aboard
the transport Henderson, made
the 50-mile trip to the glacier as
guests of the Copper Rhrer and
Northwestern railway. Departing
from here at fen In the morning
and arrlring at a famous million
-. I dollar bridge which the railroad
built across the turbulent Copper
river, the party left the train and
walked, along a toot path a half
mile until they could look direct
ly across the stream to the face of
the: glacier. ' ':'.-',:'- .o ,.,' ,
-( Seyeral minutes before they
reached this spot , the travellers
' heard, the sound of breaking Ice
like the roll of thunder. Imme-
, dlately after they had taken their
' itaad before the glacier a large
mass slid Into the rlrer with a
roar that echoed and reechoed
from fhe distant . mountains and
fronrthe other side of the stream.
Speaks at Cordova- ,
! For nearly three quarters of an
hour i the president viewed the
ight enthralled. Told that a
tunshot would usually - cause
treat masses of Ice to break off,
he ordered one of the, secret ser
: vice men to fire at the glacier
-1 with his pistol. Buf the distance
i was too great. A pistol bullet
1 would afreet the walls of that
glacier about as much as a small
I boy's popgun would the side of
a elephant.
"One of fhe' most Impressive
lights to be 'seen In Alaska," was
the way the president described
the glacier as he boarded the
train for the return to Cordova.
Back In Cordova the president
and Mrs. Harding were taken for
& ride about the town, which Is
the southern terminal of the rail-f
road. The road was built by the
Comnhelm interests In 1907 for
the transportation of ore from the
rich Kennecott. mines, l :
; Before returning to the Hen
dersoa, which departed late today
for Bitka, the president made a
trlef address to the citizens of
Cordova, ' ' ,

fourth leg of his proposed ocean

to repair the motor would require
an indefinite' period. Lieutenant
Maughan announced here tonight.
Reporting the condition of the
machine to the- army air service
officers at, Washington, Lieuten
ant Maughan declared in his re
port that the investigation show
ed that not only was his oil cool

to abandon his flight," but that
water was flowing freely from the
cylinders and was mixing with
tho oil. .. ;
More than an inch and a half
of the fluid had flown into the
cockpit beneath his seat When he
turned the plane around 20 miles
west of Rock Springs' and nosed
her back toward the - air mail

Farm Bureau President
Receipts Enables Grower tO
Loan Under Credit Act,
Says Bradfute
CHICAGO. July 20.-A plan to
-- 1 .
withdraw 200,000,000 bushela
wheat from the market and store
it on farms until prices advance
was announced today by O. E.
Bradfute, president of the Ameri
can Farm Bureau federation.!
The. farm bureau plan provides
for financing the project under
the new Intermediate credit act;
by which Mr. Bradfute estimated
$660,000,000 could be made avail
ing "their, surpluses." President
Bradfute estimated that $150,
000.000 would be ample to store
200,000,000 bushels of wheat and
thereby remove, it from the below
a dollar market. ,
President Bradfute s declared
that farm wheat bins under the
intermediate credit act might be
designated as government bonded
warehousea'! for. which bonded
warehouse receipts could be Is
sued against wheat stored on . the
farm. In this manner, he assert
ed, . the grower would be enabled
to borrow through the intermediate-
credit , system up to : three
fourths of . the market value ot
his wheat with the warehouse re
celpt as '.collateral, enabling him
at the same' time to hold his
wheat until prices, advanced and
it became advisable to sell.
' Expect Immediate Effect
The farm' bureau federation,
President Bradfute said, expected
to advance its plan through its 46 !
state farm bureaus including 1,-1
500,000 members in cooperation
with the commodity marketing as
sociations and the country banks.

(Special to The , Statesman)
Prune growers In this vicinity who
a short time ago were predicting
that- the shortest prune , crop4 in
v oik , county's history would be
harvested this year are now
changing - their opinion and . are
wondering just how the dryers
in the vicinity will take care of
the bumper crop.
Orchards where shortly after
the blooming "season', ft looked
like there would be no fruit on
the trees at all are now carrying
about as much fruit as the trees
will stand without breaking down
and those, orchards where there
was a promising show for a, crop
early in the season, are in ' great
danger of being seriously damaged
by broken limbs unless the. Aug
ust drop diminishes the heavy
load now on the trees. Many of
the orchardists are hauling thous
ands of feet of lumber Into; the
orchards, propping up the trees
to keep the limbs from-breaking
off, and unless the drop Is heavy
next month, hand' pruning of the
fruit -will : be necessary to keep
the trees from being .ruined. '-l
Although there are a large num
ber of prune. dryers In this com
munity, those growers who : have
been delaying the contracting ; of
their fruit to dryers are having
hard times trying to get sufficient
dryers to handle their crops. A
number of new dryers have been
erected this season and several
more are either in the course , of
construction or being contemplat
ed and even with these : added
drying facilities the prospect for
those who have not as yet made
arrangements for drying- their
their fruit Is anything but bright
So far no f ruif has been bought

of the county but growers expect
that contracting may begin at any
time. There still remain about
two and , one-quarter ; million
pounds ot frulf in this district of

MEXICO CITY, July 20. (By
the .Associated Press.) General
Francisco "Villa, one-time notel
bandit leader and his chief of staff
Colonel Miguel . Trillo, ' and three
members of'. Villa's escort, were
assassinated In an ambuscade early
this- morning on the outskirts of
Parral, in the state of Chihaohua.
About a half doxen men com
prised the band of assassins. They
fired on Villa and bis men' f rein
a' house they were passing and are
reported to. have escaped rom
the scene.
Villa was driving an automobile
on the way to; Guanajuato. As
soon as the news;of the assassin
ation' .reached here, orders were
sent to search the-countryside ad
jacent to the ambuscade in fin en
deavor to "round: up the guilty f r-
sons. , The body of Villa I3 ly! ?
in the city hall at Parral, taa
thousands of persons have viewed
it.' President Obregon has order
ed! an investigation Into: the as
sassination. Lara Blake Report
. Major: General' Egenio Ilartlnex
at Cblhaahua, City has sent tr
General Francisco Serrano, cecre
tary of war, an official report he
received from CoL J. Felix Lara,
commander of the garrison at Par
ral in connection with the killins
of the former noted rebel leader.
The report follows:
"Villa, Trillo and three nen
bers of their escort were killed
shortly before 8 o'clock this mem-'
lag with premeditation while Villa
and hia companions were drivf r z
in an automobile,. which Villa per
sonally Was piloting toward Guan
ajuato, a-suburb' .of. this city. The
6hots were fired -by six or ssvca
men posted in a house on the read-
way. :';. . ' : - .
"I j immediately ordered an in
vestigation rn cooperation with the
civil authorities. I had learned
that these men, armed with. 3 0-2 3
rifles, fled from - the house r :
horseback In the direction of -
ta Clara through the hills.
H Early Reports Contradict rl
"I had no cavalry and could r zl
pursue them.' The most J could
do was to order the various, de
tachments In this sector to be on
the outlook for the assassins. Th9
city authorities have ordered a de
tachment of rurales to begin Pur
suit." -...-'
Geheral Marine reported that
military detachments had left Jim- "
Inez and Valle de Allende on th
trail of the murderers. He added
that he personally was leaving for
Parral. ' f - . .. '
The report of Colonel- Lara
seems tos. indicate that early, un
official 1 reports of Villa having
been killed by hia own followers
were without foundation. Like
wise It disposed of one report that
the shooting had occurred while
Villa was leaving a train.
Francisco : ( ("Pancho"- Vina,
guerrilla chieftain and ' bandit
leader in f Mexico for more than
1 0 ' years, declared that ; he had
ended his career of outlawry in
August, 1920, when, at the head
of 900 followers, the remnant of
what had d nee been hie army of
3S.000 men. he entered San Ped-
ro, Coahulla, 'and, amid the cheers
of the populace, announced the in
tention of himself and men of ac
cepting amnesty and settling
down as farmers. - r
One of the most notable esca
pades of Villa was bis raid on
Columbus, N. M.r on March 6.
1916 in which he and his follow
ers killed 17 Americans.- It re

itary expedition " under General
