full reinstatement. Carr declared that the suspension was-rnot applicable to the case, In the reply of the civil service board, it points 6ut that It has the power to modify sentences or dismissals. The hoard said that Morrison was a capable officer and his altercation with the barber was in the nature of "a private brawl," which did not merit dismissal. The board held that a sentence of dismissal, was excessive and the policeman" a 60-day suspension' without pay, which amounted to a $400 fine, Flying Priest Lands in Crater KANAKANAK, Alaska, May 81, P) The greater of the Anlakehak volcanoes, with Its hundreds of steam jets and numerous erupting vents, Father Bernard Ri-Mubbard believes, offers a rival attraction tar (be famed Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes of a number of years ago, but now dead The dangers of its unceasing erupting activity and its Inaccessibility, however, he hastened to add yesterday on his return from the first airplane landing ever made Inside an active volcano, hardly makes It a tourist attraction, Returning from a flight with Pilot B'rank Dorbandt Into the gaping mouth of the volcano, the largest In the world, the" Santa Clara university professor described the hazards of the trip, The visit was mrt'de last Friday.

flight out of the crater, with the walla towering 2000 feet above them, was aided when Pilot Dorbandt flew the plane deliberately into the heated currents rising froi.i the vents, "On each turn," Father Hubbard said, "the current pushed the plane upwards. Finally, the last thrust shot our craft over the rim." The three-mile rea blown out of the crater a year ago was found to be still erupting, and a fresh eruption about a mile in area was going off.
