Int a little less than $67,000,000 on its airmail system. jjiis includes everything, from operation coats to the estab- L,' ;ncnt and maintenance of the great lighted airways.

Instead of attempting to banish its hoboes ,it Is utilizing and making a place for them. This city, residence of President Hoover and seat of Stanford University, has made this disposition of the problem: "Build a hotel for these men, make them stay In these better quarters, nnd earn their way—or move on!" And the plan Is working. The idea for the plan occurred to Mrs. J. W. Glover, wife of a retired sea captain. She had seen the great influx of unemployed into California to escape.the rigors of the eastern and northern winter. In the nearby San Francisquita Creek "jungle" she had seen men mending their clothes, cooking "mulligan" over bonfires, washing their clothes in big kerosene cans, and washing themselves in the river. Instead of banishing these men, it would be better to banish the jungle, she decided. She and her husband "sold" the city officials of Palo Alto on the plan of converting an unused warehouse into a hostelry to help the jobless and eliminate the beggars. The plan caught on. Instead of "Hotel de Gink," the place was called "Hotel de Zink," being made of corrugated iron. Canning firms? donated cases of tinned foods. Orchard owners-sent in tons of fruit. Other staple foods poured in. Then came, clothes, shoes, lumber and plumbing supplies. The hotel started operations without a deficit. Captain Glover will;be in active charge of the hotel'He's putting things shipshape in more ways than one. The-guests: Will be divided into two watches, just"; like shipboard. The starboard'watch and the port .watch will each. Work three hours it day to get .three!.'meals. The grounds of a nearby pork and hospital will be'im- proved; by this labor. Already, several have left the "jun- gks" to help in the work. Several carpenters and other artisans are aiding in erecting an addition to'the hotel to house lavatories,'kitchen, :and deluosing plant. Two shoemakers are using tools bought.for the hotel to put into proper condition the footwear donated for the jobless. The Palo Alto- plan i« attracting considerable attention all over California, for soon'there will be the annual migration of itinerants from the chilly eastern winters to live m«re comfortably in California.' State welfare agents are studying the plan here with a view to its adoption by other California communities desirous of aiding the jobless workers and ridding themselves of the professional hobo. There is considerable discussion in the San Francisquita Creek "jungle" Meet Alter 16 Year* , Ala.-Afterltfyiar* two brothers met each other here but- side a courtroom where one of them was a witness. The brothers are G. S< nnd J. F. Hacker. Sixteen years ago the family wag separated when th« father and mother died". Until the brothers met here, no one knew the whereabouts of th« others. There ore three dlsters who |ave nlso been "lost" for 16 years. Falling Into Se* BERLIN.—Heligolahd Is slowly falling into the . sea. Despite enormous sums of money spent on construction work desgined to prevent erosion; the sea still continues steadily to wash nway that rocky, island la- the jJorlh Sea. Geologists believe nothing can be done to stop the Island from eventually disappearing. Hunts Ancient Tomb LONDON.—Howard Carter, famous Egyptologist, Is on the hunt ngaln.
