ucordlng lo u statement mude this
inornlug by Edward High, of this
city, who has ordered two AliBuldoe
airplanes, from Italy. The planes,
a three-neater and a s.-ven passenger
Pullman car type, were ordered two
weeks ago. .Mr. High states that
the airplanes have arrived in New
York, have been shipped to Ashland
and arc expected to arrive here In
about two weeks, when preparation!
will be Immediately made for a reg
ular air taxi service and passenger
line between Ashland. Crater Luke
and Klamath Falls. The planes will
be piloted by Clyde E. Pangborn. an
aviator who has been operating here
during the past several weeks, anil
Mr. High. They will be ruu on a
two-hour schedule throughout the
summer tourist season on an esti
mated passenger fare of $10 a round
trip, regardless of the financial suc
cess for the first season, Mr. High
The Ahsnldoe planes are especial
ly built for heavy passenger service
and high altitude flying. Both of
the plunes are capable of an average
sped of 145 miles per hour, whlh
will make the two-hour run an easy
matter. The local aviation ground,
known as Ashland field, and located
across from the foot of Oak street,
will be the base of operations, con
trary to a report recently published
In a Medford newspaper which In
ferred that the planes would be
flown from that city.
A landing place Is provided at
Klamath Falls. A large clearing Im
mediately in the rear of Crater Lake
lodge offers a su table field for a
"get-off" and a landing. Mr. High
Both airplanes are or the large,
comfortable passenger currying type.
Reasonable amounts of baggage, such
as suit cases and small packages
may be taken by the passengers. Tin;,
planes will be in addition In the one.

"The forced landing of one of our
planes near Oasis Butte ten days

Its safe flight from there, demon

should not be a permanent feature!
hi the future."
Heretofore the high altitude, cou-
pled with rocky character of the;
country, have led airplane experts:
to doubt the feasibility of air pas-i
enger service to the lake. But the
safe landing by Cadet Raymond C.
Fisher in a DeHavlland, which is a
much more difficult plane to nego
'tlate than the slower Ansaldoe, has
definitely removed all doubt.
Not only did Fleher make a safe
landing without the slightest Injury
to the nlane or its occupants, but
Lieutenant Eugene Batten made a
safe get-away a few days later In,
spite of the rough soft character of,
the pumy ash. An Interesting fea-,
ture of his flight is that new spark
pings were dropped to him by para-j
thute from a plane piloted by Staff;
'Sergeant Arndt, spark plug trouble
being the cause of the forced land
ing. The altitude at Oasis Butte is at
least 6500 feet, and the th'n uir ren

HEAVY SHIPMENT OP
PEARS IS EXPECTED
FROM R. II. ALLEY
The first shipment of eariy Cali
fornia pears to Bosto nauctioned for
$7 a box and a similar shipment to
Chicago brought $8. GO a box. Later
shipments in car lots brought from i
$5.80 to $6. 50 a box. it looks good
for the Northwest this year for that
Is the only section where the crop
Is near normal, except in California
where the prospects are gradually
being reduced by hot winds land
storms that have blown off the fruit.
The Medford-Ashland district ex
pects to ship around 650 carloads
of pears and the Yakia estimates are
in for 1600 carloads. Railroads art
making preparations for the heavy
crop and It Is expected that then
will be no car shortage this year.
A communication received by the
Oregon Growers Co-operative asso
ciation states that a high wind in
tho Sacramento valley has blown off
about 6000 or 7000 tons of pear.
making a reduction of nearly 3 0 per
cent in that district which means a
10 per cent reduction of pear crop
estimates for the whole of Cali
fornia. This In conjunction with losses in

tauqua was enjoyed by a large crowd
ot Ashland theatre goers and music
lovers. The expectancy of au exaC
iug metropolitan audience could not
buve been better satisfied than was
the audience, last night as they saw
acted before them the counterpart
of the old Indian legends surround
ing the past of Southern Oregou'i
nationally knowu wonder, Crater
The story is na entrancing tale of
youth and love. It takes its pluce
with literature that is par excellence
and is a credit 10 the writer, Mrs.
John II. Dill, and the musical coin
poser, H. B. Pasmore, well knowu
liy his connection with the Chautau
qua here. The ballade opera fu
written, set to music, rehearsed and
presented withiu three weeks, u fact
which makes ats success moro not
'able nud worthy of praise.
The following are brief quotations
from the-Btory of the ball.ulo opera
given by home talent at the Chau
tauqua yesterday evealug and de
notes the theme ot the tale, inter
woven with a mythological buck
background of Indiuu legends that
are rife among the early historical
stories of Crater Luke:
First chorus description of lake:
This Is the lake with waters deep
High in its mountain cup set.
Which dips to a depth that mortal
has not touched.
And holds a secret, spirits only kumv,

Second Trio mention of Isle ami
enchanted maiden on it:
Within this lake there lies an Isle,
A dork and mystic Isle,
That captive holds a muideu fair
Who awaits her lover there.
Why she is there and why the snare
The spirits only kuow,
But tor the lover bold and true
The phantom ship will sail.
Will sail aoross tha waters blue
And spurn the evil spell,
'And to his heart he will clasp hit
And ever with her dwell.
Third chorus and solo nurration
of the past efforts of lovers, who
were not the true one. who hare been
drawn under by the demons that
dwell In the water and toss It with
their anger, and keep the Phantom
ship from moving. The omt tblug
that can move the ship is true lovs
and a fearless heart. These will
vanquish the evil spirits forever.
Fourth Trio. "Ob see, be comes,

with description ot lover and won
