J'KIF'l.^c;, Nov. 8.—A solution of Hit- "Immlil problem" in Honan province h.i.s been made by General Sun TjiiiiiK-ehen, uncording to reports In tin- Chlneuo press here. DrlK'inds have over-run Honan dur- ln - the pa:it year, looting any burning a large number of villages and towns, even attacking walled cities. Soldiers have wiped out some of the bands, but others quickly sprang up- General Sun, former military governor of Shantung, decided that somo- think drastic must be done, according to the Chinese pres«. Ho he carried o--t on a large scale somnthtnR which has been done in a smaller wny elsewhere. He offered the brigands jobs as soldiers. The Chinese press does not slnte whether these ex-bandit, soldiers are well-behaved or not, but apparently their behavior is satisfactory to General Sun. One of tho leading Nationalist generals in Honan at present is General Sun Tien-Yinjf. Three years ago he was a famou." bandit-lender. A force of about 10,000 man under his leadership attacked the city of Pochow, with Its ancient walls, and burned and pil- In^ed and murdered. The town of Pochow wai held by the bandit chief for several days, and his desperadoes were given a free hand, with the result that hundreds of men, women and children were killed, and others lost all their possessions. The military governor of Honan at that time apparently decided that Sun Tlen-ylng was too powerful to fight, and made overtures to him. After somn bargaining, General Sun and his bandits were taken over Into the government army, and have been a part of tho army ever since. Apparently their behavior has been satisfactory to the military authorities in Honan. The example, however, had rather disconcerting results. Other bandit leaders decided that they might get government jobs for themselves and their robbers by sacking a few cities. Banditry became more general than ever.

If they can be given jobs in the army, they automatically cease their robberies. Foreigners in Honan agree that in many cases this is true. Formerly peaceable farmers, threatened with starvation,, became bandits to provide food for themselves and their families. There was the recent case of a bandit leader who kidnapped two foreign missionaries, and then offered to release them if the government would take him and his men into the army. This bandit chief said he was a victim of circumstances. If he could be assured of a living, he said he would gladly forego the life of a robber, and his men would do the aamij.

(Copyright, 1929, by Connollelateil Press Association.) WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov.' 8.— With its "billion dollar gift of nature" In radio channels, the Universal Communications Co., Inc., in December, plans to throw open to tho public the flrst segment of its radio-telegraph message service. According to Milton J. Blanchard of Buffalo, general manager, stations already have" been established In five key cities and will begin operation before Christmas. This will be the Initial' link of the 110-city network which the company must have in active commercial operation before 1932, and which would give the United States WANT TO MAKE Some Easy Money?

Lower rates, faster transmission and all-around improved service for th* public are promised. In New York, Chicago, Suffalo, CUj- clnnatl and Detroit stations alreS*y have been completed, with full equipment Installed, Mr. Blanchard reveals. Equipment now is being lns*oii»I n »t Columbus, Milwaukee, Peoria, and Springfield, Ills., and should be completed within a week, he says. After this, the exclusive universal apparatus, which its owners claim makes possible five-way transmission on but a single channel, will be placed in plants at Trenton, New Brunswick, Boston, and Providence, and completed before the end of the year. Then work will begin at Baltimore, Memphis and Norfolk. In all these cities, Mr. Blanchard asserts, business offices as well as transmitting and receiving stations have been provided J!or. Experimental tests of the station locations, to ascertain whether they are In radio interference areas, have been made in every case, he states. For the first time Universal is publicly demonstrating its exclusive equipment with which it plans to link'110 cities with only forty radio-telegraphy channels. At the Chicago radio show, now in progress, Universal is exhibiting its apparatus, with an electrically displayed map of the country, depleting the 110 cities which it proposes to link by 1932. The five-way communication system won the Universal the allocation of the bulk of the channels for domestic point to point radio-telegraphy. With these exclusive patents Universal engineer* demonstrated to the apparent satisfaction of the federal radio commission that they"could transmit, simultaneously, five separate messages on the channel width normally used for but one, or possibly two independent contacts. This system, It is reported, was demon- / strated at the Chicago show and the acclaim of leaders in the industry,, notably Dr. Lee Deforest, the inventor of the vacuum tube. Diamonds up to 22 carats have been found in twenty-four 'localities in the United States.
