[ Ky NEA Service MADRID.—Major Ram'n Franco, ihe blaefc-haireil Lindt,;iKh of Spain, wlio broke pihon a month; ago in order to join a revolt against j the Squish government and who'' wound up by napping a plane and I rky-rocketing to safety in Portugal, has been an cxtrciroly troublesome clcti'itv for his native land. It was in L92G'that Franco made himself Spain's popular idol by being the first man I/: fly the South Atlantic; and before the cheers prbvokfd by that exploit had died away he had ruffled the feelings of Ills government, in the itrst of a ^•ries of rows that weic to grow more seikus as time \s'enL on.

Was Hero in Africa For several years he was something ct i. iclebnty in the army, even though the country at large had not heard of him. His face and hands mode rough and red by the desert sim and winds, lie was called "Jackal," and his daring exploits with his airplane won him fame. Ha used to start out on patrol in 'the morning with a couple of sandwiches in his p:ck3t. fly beyond the enemy's lines, and return • at duck. Time and again he did this, often being forced down to-! hind the lines, but always escaping unhurt. He was fond of stunting; it is said that, whenever the soldiers in Morocco saw a plane gyrating with unaccustomed daring they nt onr.: guessed that France- was Its pilot. In 192G came nation-wide faine. Spain to Smith America, won gov-- emment approval and made the trip—a long hop of more than 6000 miles, brcken by stops at the Canary arid Cape Verda Islands and at Ule Island of Fernando de Norou- ha. He loured Rio, Montevideo and Buenos Aires, wininR great enthusiasm all over South Ajnerica. -'. S. Tour Canceled He planned to fly north and tour in - United States, but the government intervened and peremptorily ordered him honi?. He said he would fly back, adding 1 - that it permission were refused he would never fly again. The government, insisted that he return by steamer —and w'nen the Argentine government nut a cruiser at his disposal he consented, forgetting his threat. A lew \..:eks after his return Franco bitterly criticized his ariny superiors. and spent two months in jail as a result. Later in the same year he was locked up for another month for making some other criticism of government policy. Then he began to lay ambitious plans for a world flight. In 1928 lie made his first attempt, taking off from Cadiz for New York. This attempt came to a quick end, however, when the plane was fr.rccd down only 100 mi!i?s from Cadiz with, a - plugged gasoline feed line. Franco came «;ack and made ready for another start. Rescued in Mid-Atlantic In June, 1928, he was ready, and with three companions, took off in a seaplane for New .York. A brief step was made at the Azores, and the journey was resumed. 7 hen, again, came trouble. The Hanc was forced down nt sea, in Imminent danger of being swamp- eu oy tl:e high waves. At home, Franco was given up for dead, and the nation began to mourn its most p-pular hero. But Franco was not dead. After his plane had'drifted a week the British aircraft carrier Eagle found It and carried Franco and his com• panions back to Spain. Popular rejoicing was universal; Spain was ns delighted as the United States would be if Lindbergh should be lost at sea and then brought home in safety. Then Franco began, to get into political trouble again. He was known to be an ardent republican At the time that tb,3 late Premier de Rivera's regime fell, Franco openly expressed his disapproval of he mcnarchy; and a little move than & month ago he wrote such heated articles against the government that he was arrested and sentenced to eight months' Imprisonment. Escapes From Prison Instead" of being confined, in a regular prison h e was put in at eld convent on the outskirts o Madrid, where many political pris- oneis were lodged. The place wa far from teing escape proof, am prisoners confined there are re quired to pledge themselves not t< • try to escape. This pledge tin •• g'vernmcnt says Franco gave; but three weeks after his arrival there he got out, twisting the bars ou o( n corridor window and dropping crov.-n prince.

French frontier and began organiz- j ing brother aviators for the rev- \ ti^nary forces and climaxed this ; ciaring flights over Madria, dropping revolutionary propaganda. Ccnsidering Franco's hostility to Ihc government and his great popularity with the masses, it is not surprising that, his escape was soon followed by a revolt—a revolt with him playing ?v most spectacular part. Chill Confines Prince of Wales to His Home GENERAL MOTORS RADPO introduces the U1IIE GENERAL WITH TONE ^ELECTOR LONDON. Dec. 18. (UP)—The Prince of Wales was suffering from chill today and as a result engagements for him were cancelled. At York house it- was said officially the prince was confined to his home with "a slight chill." PILES Ended Without Cultimr or Salves Thousands of Pile sufferers have learned that quick and permanent rrlief can only be accomplished with an internal medicine. Neither salves or cutting remove the cause. Bad circulation of the blood in the lower bowel causes piles. The veins nre flabby, the bowel walls weak—tho parts almost dead. To end Piles an Internal medicine must be -used to stimulate the circulation and strengthen the affected parts. Dr. J. S. Leonhardt was the first to discover a real Internal Pile remedy. He called his prescription HEM-ROID. and prescribed It for 1600 patients with the marvelous record of success in 060 cases, and then decided every File sufferer should be able to get I1EM-RO1D from their own -druggist with a rigid money-back guarantee. Dr. Lconhardt's prescription has a wonderful record of success right in this city and Kirby Drug Co. Invites every Pile sufferer to try HEM-ROID and guarantees to refund (he purchase price if it decs not end all Pile misery. —Adv. 1 * these of Beauty and lasting Setwce Cmuln« Cotfllc <i«<|n in Ibrf, fnllkn mntlqu*! b*f fvory {«cgi4«r — Btffht , 19*.
