Gerhardt, aeronautical en- gineer at McCook field, is the is- renter of the contrivance, which he terms a scientific curiosity, and in which contrivance he made the first successful flights in the presence of many witnesses. While the flights which were made with the new machine were not sen- sational, the inventor claims that the principles involved will be suc- cessfully incorporated in a machine of great heights and speed. In the longest flight made with the machine, operated and supplied with the pilot's own power, it rose about three tnchs from the ground and flew approximately 20 feet, which the inventor declared was long enough to insure steady flight. "This machine was not intended to fly round the sky but merley to make the kind of flight it did, to prove scientificlaly the possibllRy of human flight," the inventor said. The "cycleplane" has seven lift- ing wings, one mounted above the others by means of a connecting strut three, feet high; each wing is approximately two feet in width and three inches thick. A propeller made of light wood is operated by the pilot by means of a agers and supporters are optimistic; their enthusiasm grows as the date of the primary approaches. Numerous straw votes have been taken for gov- ernor and for other offices. If there is a full woman vote added to the kucreased men vote. it may be sev- eral days before the definite vote as. to the various candidates is known. In some counties, there will perhaps be over 100 names on the ballot, for state, lgislative, county and beat of- fices, and with the increased number of tickets to count since the women vote, perhaps, twice as long a time will be rqutred to count the ballots as in some previous elections where it took several days. The fact has been developed by some of the vigilant correspondents of the metropolitau newspapers that there is only one Confederate sol- dier who is a state officer. This is Colonel W. A. Montgomery of Hins, who is prison trustee for the middle district of Missisippi. Colonel Mont- gomery, while around 75 years of age, is said to  be as active as a mau of 40, riding'a horse over the state arms from sun-up to sunset, and fill- ing iu the recreation hy a fox hunt that night, or a deer chase, in which I he is au adepts next day.

Cordova, Alaska.Presldent Hard- lug and his cabinet officials have practically completed their inspection of Alaska and find It needs help, but not so much as they had been led to believe. The president is said to be con- vinced that Alaska can be well taken care of without any extensive reor- ganization of government and without a great outlay of federal aid. Primarily, the president and his ad- visers. Secretaries Wallace, Hoover and Work, are expected to commit themselves to a general policy of con- servative development'. Nothing will be done. it Is stated, to encourage col- onisation or to overdevelop agrlcult- me.

Home Dmonstration Agent'Told Hot Idea of Contest Beet of 'Any State. Jackson.--Mrs. Delia B. alley, homo demonstration agent for the north- western dlstrict0 has received from G. L. Noble, chairman of the national committee on boys' and girls' work, a letter acknowledging the receipts of her plan for the health contest in he district and charaterizing it as "the most comprehensive in any state.  The contest will be conducted by a process of eliminatlon the winne of-the community test" entering fm county honors, and the winner of the county entering for the state cham. plonship at the state fair and the final contest being staged at the Tr State Fair. Mrs. Alley and Miss May Harden, agent for the southwestern dtstric! have deParted for the A. M. College to prepare for the state short course to opeq there, having successfully closed the short courses In the dl trier otton Crop Poor. Como.The cotton crop condition in the locality of Come is so unusual that the business men and cotton growers are doing the unusual. Mueb of the best lowlands show such die. couraging outlook, some fields of cot ton showing a plant not more than five to eight inches-high, and bloom in top of the plant, are plowing up some of these lowlands and planting to corn. The recent rainy weather is so favorable to the boll weevil and the cotton so young and undeveloped, till all accede that the prospect for cotton yield here Just now was per- hal never worse. The president and his advisers were impressed with the meeting in Fair- bnks when a gret crowd oiced unanimous approval to the action of Hoover in closing two destructive salmon fisheries traps in the Yukon river. The crowd also cheered when i Mayor Marquam of Fairbanks declar- ed the people would fight to a finish to prevent leas!pg of the government tlroad from Seward to Fatrbanks to t private interests. He declared it would mean eventual monopolization of coal gold, silver, fisheries nd I other resources by private capital. With respect to agriculture, the president Secretary Wallace and I " others are convinced of the great pos- sibilities of AlasKa to sustain a large f,tur population. Wallace nd his associates were assured it would be ' great mistake to encourage any colo- nization territory with a view to rush- ing agricultural development, as exr p0rtaflon of foodstuffs never can be practical. Careful survey of the situation in- dicates Alaska could sustain eventu- idly on he own agricultural land a popuaUon of 3,000,000, However. as the present popuation is only 55,000-- 30.000 white and the rest native Es- kimos and Indians--it is estimated that 80.000 acres n the whole terri- tory could be cultivated for farming purposes with 33,000 more available for grazing. The government also is incllned to recommend more liberal appropriations for Alaskan roads as trtnsportatlon is vital to perpetua- tion. Mrs. Harding still is fatigued by her long Journey and has not left her boat apaetment since her arrival from Fatrbanks. At Seward she did not a- comPany the president's party to the Copper river section, nor over the Guggenheimer road from Cordova. EDITORS WANT EDWARDS. N. E. A.
