An American Record,

George llnhlemnn anil Kcltlie
Slinson, Americans, on Friday
broke the world's rmUmuu'e
record in the nir, flying with
out stopping, fifty-throe lind

The Freneh government "f
fers a niillon f runes to any
French flier that will win back
sonic flying records formerly
held by Freneh fliers.
f
A little encouragement from
our government would make it
impossible for any nation to
compete with American flying.
H The first flying machine was
made here. Lindbergh was born
here. Wc have the money and
engineers. This ought to be
the Hying nation.
i This comes from Italy: "Ma
,ior de IWiiarili has establish-
el a new world's air record,
318 :i-4 miles an hour."
Will some naval gentlemen
that call flying machines "only
auxiliary," be good enough to
tell what chance slow moving
ships on the surface would have
against a flock of airplanes

The biggest news of ihc day
is Mussolini's open attack on
the Pope and the Catholic,
church. He issues an order
hat "All organizations of Hal-
. i . .. i . e
ian youth must ie miner ihhuiml
direction." In thirty days all
religious or other non-fascist
organizations for enrolling the
young must disband.
London says, The Italian
king assert himself in defense
of the Italian constitution or
abdicate." Mussolini would
take his job.

The new law' will add 5,000,

It isn't a matter of preference but of comfort that Gene Hunter,
7-ycar-old Los Angeles youth, takes his dinner ofT the mantlepiecc.
It is really painful for him to sit down. Gene's parents think he had
it coming, for he created somewhat of a flurry in the city. -Bluffing
his way through the railroad station gates and onto a train with the
finest accommodations, he traveled many miles before it was dis
covered he was a stowaway. Complete self-assurance convinced
trainmen that he was a legitimate traveler. Then he was put off.
Meanwhile a frantic family and a worried police department had
been combing Los Angeles in search of him. Gene's reception home
was ill-befitting the role of wealthy gentleman traveler he had been
playing. So now he's taking his meals standing.

clair to defraud the government
in giving Sinclair a lease to the
Teapot Dome oil resnrve, today
finished telling his story ot the
lense, to be used In Sinclair's de
fense ut his trial in Washington
next week.
Weakened from a long Illness
which prevented him going to
Washington and standing trial
with Sinclair, the former cabinet
officer had been on the witness
stuud more than twelve hours
when Daniel Thew Wright, taking
the deposition for Sinclair, turn
ed him over to Atlee Pomerene,
special government prosecutor for
cross-examination. Fall was able
tto go through last night's Besslon
i ami again today only through the
administration of heart stimulants
by ms physician
It was at the night session that
the former foes, who had matched
wits on the senate floor years
ago, met again, this time across
a library table In the spacious
home of Mrs. Fall.
Fall, looking forward to (he
cross-examination by his former
democratic l'oe on the floor ot the
senate, was enlivened by his an-
across the witness table sne oe-
lleved to be one reason why ho
bad held iid so well during the
gruelling three days of testifying.
Fall, during his testimony, con

Odds and ends of the oil and

final dlroct examination before
Pomerene plungod into his cross
examination. The government
charges that Fall favored Sinclair
with information regarding the
