»*a Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor ——Alex. H. Washburn™— The Wright Brothers Plane Comes Home Here's n pungent paragraph in the day's news: "Washington, Oct. 20 —W) — Charles A. Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis began moving over today lor a famous companion, the Wright brothers' pioneer Kitty Hawk. Hereafter, the Wright's plane will occupy the No. 1 display spot at the Smithsonian Institution." You probably know the story already, but the details will bear repeating on the occasion of full justice finally boing given the Wright brothers by the Smithsonian Institution. ' On December 17, 1003, the Wright machine made the first man-carrying flight by a heavicr- than-air, self-propelled craft, in the history of the world. The flight at'KHty Hawk, N. C., lasted 59 seconds, over a distance of 852 feet. The machine used a gasoline engine with four cylinders producing 16 horsepower and this is a significant fact. For, seven years earlier, on May 6, 1896, Samuel P. Langley, noted scientist and one of the world's ranking authorities on the theory of aeronautics, had successfully flown a large model airplane—but not big enough to carry a man. He used a small steam engine, burn- ling naptha fuel. He called his machine an "aerodrome". ...In 1903, the same year the Wrights actually flew in their plane, Langley built a full-scale aerodrome weighing, with pilot, 830 pounds. He switched to gasoline power, using an engine of 52.4 horsepower. The government had put in $50,000 to help the experiment. But the plane never got off the ground. Its failure at the time was attributed to a defect in the launching apparatus rather than the plane itself. In any event, the government withdrew its financial support, the Wright brothers made their successful Kitty Hawk take-off later the same year —and won world acclaim for the first man-carrying mechanical flight. Now the first successful airplane is-a .technical exhibit of the greatest magnitude. And America's greatest museum is the Smithsonian .Institution in Washington, D. C.. But Langley himself was secretary of the Smithsonian. His "aerodrome" was put in there as the world's first flying machine— and the Wright brothers were enraged. The great British museum in London invited them to send their original machine overseas, and they did this very thing. Only now has the Smithsonian Institution made full restitution. First, it moved Lindbergh's transatlantic plane into a spot ahead of Larigley's antique—but finally capitulated and asked the Wright 'brothers to bring the Kitty Hawk home, where it belonged. ; ' That brings us up to now; , But one final word needs to be said in behalf of Langley. He really .had a flying machine. His model < -was perfect. But he had used steam for power. And apparently the sudden switch to gasoline in the man- carrying model may have contributed to his final failure— for the Wrights had been working with gasoline power all through their final experiments. '•'•' Years later, in 1914, the original „ Langley aerodrome, with no im. pbrtant alterations, was actually flown by anpther great name in American aviation—Glenn H. Curtis. Hut nothinc can change the record. The Wrights were first to get off the ground. And now the Aitty Hawk is back home where it belongs—the first successful airplane. •K * * World's Ills Require More Than Angry Words Before UN By JAMES THRASHER Belgium's Premier Spaak thinks there is too much "open diplomacy" in the United Nations. We don't know that we agree with Mr. SpaakV choice of phrase. But we do agree with his complaint that the United Nations is boing used too much as a sounding board for propaganda. There is nothing wrong with open diplomacy as such. The Wilsouian ideal of "open covenants openly arrived at,' 'though never fully realized, is still a worthy goal. . .What Mr. Spaak obviously objects to are the uses to which open diplomacy is being put. He says that debate in the UN does not have the healthy spontaneity it had three years ago. Instead, the delegates have become conscious ol the world coverage of their remarks that will reach millions of readers. This offers a .terrible temptation to indulge in propaganda, the premier points out. He was referring, of course, to the speeches in which representatives of Russian-bloc countries and the western democracies have charged each others' governments wilh desiring and preparing for war. These charges have been made in blunt, intemperate words and, in the case of Russia, with (hat disregard for truth thai is tlie- trade murk of propaganda. There is no denying that a threat to the peace exists. But a succession of angry speeches will do nothing to remove it. On the contrary, such speeches can only fill the minds of millions all over the world with dread and resignation. Very often it is not the fire itself, but the cry of "Fire!" that starts a fatal panic. Very often il is not an organic ailment but apprehension that reveals itself in the symptoms of a serious disease- Panic and apprehension, we believe, can also help breed war. Mr. Spaak offers no remedy for this situation in the UN. lie says only that some "more moderate, system" must be developed to retrace the abuses 01 upon diplomacy without resorting to secret ' diplomacy. Perhaps there is Uu .set of rules that can change the present situation. But this much is clear. The people^ ul the world do nut want war. They are nut planning war.

Government forces occupied the Blignieres pit and the Denain mine station in the northern mining belt soon after dawn. Strike pickets did not resist. Other forces in St. Etienne in the central.-coal basin took over the big Tis'sot pit without opposition. In the Pas De Calais department of the Northern fields, however, strikers were reported working feverishly to strengthen barricades in anticipation that troops would soon arrive. The Communist-controlled Confederation of Labor (CGT) called for other sections of French labor to support the 24-day old coal strike and received support • from dock workers at Rouen. The dockers refused for an indefinite period to unload coal ships now in port. It was predicted the government would send troops to unload the ships if the walkout continued. The rail sabotage was reported 3aigns, preparing means for carrying them out, moving agaitist a country on orders and fighting war after it has been instituted, from Marseille. The report" the locomotive, tender and said baggage car of a miners' train were derailed by removal of a rail at a tunnel entrance.
