First U. S. Navy Dirigible
Ready for Flighi Today
Pensacola, Fla., April 1. The DN-1,
first of the United States navy's fleet
of dirigible airships, was delivered to
the government by the Connecticut
Aircraft company and made ready for
its initial flight under the direction of
Tilot Lieutenant-Commander McCrary
at the naval aeronautic station here to
day. Commander McCrary recently returned
from his naval business journey to
London and supervised the completion
of the DN-1 at New Haven, Conn.,
where the big envelope was, assembled.
Naval authorities predict that the 1)N
1 is the first of a monster fleet of air
craft which eventually will become one
of the country 's biggest defensive
While this dirigible is a small non
rigid affair compared to the Zeppelins
in use on the other side, the company
is already working on plans for the con
struction at once of a larger
ship of tho rigid type and built on the
lines of the latest models now in use
in Europe. It will be usd as a train
ing ship for the instruction of pilots.
Tho dirigible is 175 feet long, 35
feet in diameter and 50 feet high. It
weighs 5,000 pounds and has a lifting
capacity of 3,000 pounds, making a
total of 7.000 nonnds. The envelope
will contain 150,000 cubic feet of I
hydrogen and the craft will travel at
nspecd of thirty-five miles an hour.
The car is twenty feet long and five
feet wide and will carry a crew of
eight. It is built to float on the water.
Motive power is provided by an eight
cylinder gasoline engine, which operates
two four-bladed propellers, one on each
side of the car. The car will be steered
by a big canvass rudder hung on the
Tear of the envelope, while horizontal
planes. Tunning on the equator of the
envelope, will prevent a rolling motion.

Will Salem have a baseball team this

of baseball teams in Salem because the
various clubs and organizations about
tho city will set about to collect 1 doien
players and organize a team, but what
the fans are looking for is someone to

Salem's best players are signing with

which will shake up the local fans into

time to make hay for the baseball
harvest nnd the well orgnnized tc'.ms
of the valley' arc signing up players to
strengthen their nggiwgations where lo

Some Facts About the
Famous Corbett Brothers
Two brothers the Corbett boys, were
athletically inclined from tho time they
first fell out of their trundle beds. The
manner in which they landed indicated
this. Out in California amid the frag
rance of the orange groves, and roses
were these two lads reared. In their
extreme youth they gave every indica
tion of becoming great athletes, for
they were passionately fond of all
sport-s pertaining to skill, nerve and
Jim, the older of tn two, In his early
youth, was ambitious to be a ball player
a great one. Joe, the younger, had a
mad dusire to be a pugilist to shine as
a great boxer. Now James spent many
hours trying to become proficient in the
national game, but 'twas of no purpose,
for the tall lad wonfd never make a
finished ball player. Ho could play the
game fast enough for amateur contests.
but would never make a professional inj
100 yenrs. ihat was the verdict ot his
friends. On the other hand, the dream
of Joe Corbett 's ambition was to be n
boxer, like Charley Mitchell, Jacl
Dempsey, or even Joe Choynski, but th
would-be pugilist failed to show the
necessary qualities, failed to impress hir
friends by his skill with the mitts, and
they handed nut the verdict that Jo.
would never do in the roped arena.
They were a sad pair of athletes
that is, athletically sad. As time wore
on Jim discovered that he possessed con
siderable skill ns u boxer, the manner in
which he banged the other fellow's jaw
convinced his friends thnt he was there
with the mitts. But James never cared
for the boxing game ns a youngster,
nothing but baseball for him, hut whe
was the use; if he couldn't make the
select class he didn't want to go at nil.
Now brother Joo hadn't much use for
the gamo of baseball and only played
it under great pressure, and brother
Jim's coaxing. One day an old-timer
mentioned to Joseph that
make a good pitcher from the manner
in which he pegged the ball across the
diamond, it fairly smoked in its flights.
This suggestion awakened a new idea in
the athletic brain and breast of Joe.
The clever youngster had come to the
conclusion that he would never amount
to much as a "pug," so gave all his
spare time to reliearsinij the tricks nt
tlie pitching game and in n short time
proved beyond all doubt that r? had
the makings of n r.'.il hnrler in him.
James CorbMt alviouch ho was very
loath to abandon all hope of ever
amounting to anything as a ball to.s-ser.
finally gave up in despair of ever get
ting any farther than ffie sand lot bri
gade, turned his f ullnttention to the
boxing gnme and soon learned to like
the sport nnd enjoyed the fun of knock
ing the other fellow 's block off. He be
came so proficient with his dukes that
the average local expert was easy for
him. His skill attracted considerable
attention nnd in a short time he found
himself famous as a scientific, boxer.
His march to fame came in leaps and
bounds, and one day he licked the cham
pion heavyweight scrapper of the world,
displaying a new style of fighting,
which was a revelation to nil experts of
the old school and I might add. the nuw.
And the gentlemanly young 'ad who de
spised the fighting jjanie at oi" time
and detested the idea of ever becoming
a pugilist became the cininpion of the
world in knocking the block off ell un-
pirnuts who dured to meet him.
Brother Joe, the would oe hover, who
despised baseball in his infantile years,
made a success as an amateur pitcher,
then proved he could qualify for faster
company, so he got a job with the f'ali-
whirlwind in hurling a baseball that lie
was offered a trial with the best base
ball elub in the world, including Hono
lulu. In his very first season with the
Baltimore team, when it was tike class
iest aggregation ever hunched together.
l.Toe Corbett pitched and won two games
in the Temple Cup series of 1S!H1, to de
cide which was the best team in Imse
ball. That season the Orioles won all
four games. The following season Joe
Corbett was the star pitcher of the big
12-club National league and no one was
more proud of his little brothter than
was Champion James E. Corbett, and
you can bet that little Joe was proud
of his big brother, Jim. Sporting
