hop for Nome, Alaska, tomorrow
from Miano Pllglno, small village
southwest of Cape Navarin. where
they were set ashore after being
rescued from an uninhabited Isl
and where their proposed Japan

The messages said the weather
was moderating rapidly! following
a storm which raged in ithe vicin
ity of Cape Navarin yesterday and
The word received hete said
the fliers would go from Nome to
Seattle, possibly In two bops, but
did not say where the intermedi
ate stop would be en route to the'
states from Nome. It Was believ
ed here this would place them in
Seattle about September 22, the
date Moyle . set for his arrival
there in a-.messaKe to Frances
Bresson, his fiancee at Riverside,
Calif. : -.-'
The advices said the monoplane
was taken to Miano Pllglno by the
Burlat at the same time the fliers
were set ashore there, but no de
tails were given.

A: clash : over' the -issuance of a

retary Osborne had issued a single
edition of a four-page bulletin' and
the committee considering his re

Rynerson, editor of - the Oregon
Labor Press; the official organ of
the federation. For two" hours the
oratorical battle raged.
' Some delegates rallied to the
support . of . the , Labor r Press and
expressed fear that two publica
tions would divide support of the
labor movement; others thought
that the more publications the bet
ter and that the new bulletin
would reach persons . who would
not read the' Labor Press.
Finally, an amendment author
izing the 'secretary, It he wishes,
to Issue a bulletin to take a page
or more In the Labor Press was
approved after .Editor Rynerson
said that he wpuld give the space
at no cost to the federation. .
: There was another disagree

secretary regarding the work of
the interim commission on indus
