?Hfi AtfftOMA MtRftOft- 13. HAPPENINGS FROM WORLD'S AIRWAYS By JOSEPH If. V. S. Avlntlon Kdltor. WASHINGTON, t>. C., Nov. 13.— The slgnnl service of the aky-ronds soon will covor ovnry square mlln of American territory where airplanes fly. This Is the promise made by the commerce department aeronautics bureau which l.i completing the most wide-spread went her Information "setup" ever established. With Its completion, it will be possible for fliers in any part of the country to .'ccelve advice on atmospheric; conditiomi at landing llclrts ahead. The commerce department now hns twenty-four radio broadcasting stations located In various parts of the United States. Between tlitue stations radio telegraph carries Information about weather conditions at each. This Is broadcast on the houf to filers along the route. The system's many advantages are obvious. A flier starts out from town "A" with a. clear sky above. Soon hig radio picks up a message from town "B" warning of an approach- Ing storm or advising him that n heavy fog will make landing dangerous or Impossible. The (Her then Is able to change his course and avert the danger. Fifteen new radio stations now are under construction. When they are added to the twenty-four existing ones, the major portion of America's civil airways will be protected. "Upon completion of the commerce department's radio weather system," Assistant Secretary of Aeronautics Young said recently, "there will be hardly a square mile in the United States where Hying takes place Hint will not be covered by radio broadcast of weather Information. A simple receiving set aboard the airplane will enable any pilot to be constantly advised of changing weather conditions and will perhaps do more than any other single factor to-provide safe ty of flight." The navy department's aeronautics bureau Is frankly perturbed. With Its "thousand-plane" program ncnrinp completion and the demand for pilots growing each day, some of the navy'. 1 best fliers are leaving the service t< accept more lucrative places In tlu commercial aeronautical world, when their Intense training makes them highly valuable. Only a few have resigned their commissions yet. One of the latest was Lieutenant Zeus Soucek, noted navy flier, who established an endurance record for seaplanes last year. Bui what la worrying Admiral William A Moffet, chief, and other officers of tho bureau Is tho spirit of unreal In the air service. Many air officers, It Is said, arc staying In tho navy with the hope their pay soon will bo raised. It Is true some officers of the line now look with envy on the pay envelopes of flight officers, who receive 50 per cent more base pay than officers o other branches of tho navy. Yet, 1 Is contended by high officers of tho aeronautic bureau, that unless some thing IB done to make naval air serv Ice more remunerative, the navj stands to lose many of its best fliers The first "alr-rall-steamshlp lino' In the world, according to Its hackers *\ was 'started recently when the Sf 1 California steamed away from Nev (Yorlc city for Caribbean waters. Th ship will pass through tho Panaini canal, turn up tho west coast am deposit Its passengers near Los An geies. There they may make connec lion with tho Transcontlnentar Al Transport's "air-rail" system for th return trip east. Distance: 0,000 miles Fare, $550. A flying Robot" has been tnventoi In Germany, according to informatloi reaching tho commerce department This device, It Is said, will stablliz a plane on the lateral, the longltudl nal and tho vertical axes, leaving th human pilot free to center his atten tlon on his navigation Instruments an relieving him of tho tenseness o manual control. Backers of the Invention say a pi lot may. In case of an emergency counteract the automatic control am Immediately resume command of th plane by slight pressure on the "stick. 1 The Invention in said to fly a, plan more steadily than tho human hand It has been patented by a Berlin coin puny. TO HKCEIVE *:;G,000. NEW YORK, Nov. ].'!. — Marcli JSnturdus yesterday filed an acceptanc on Justice Aaron J. Levy's verdict, re tiuclng her damage award from Harr; K. Thaw to $1!5,000. Miss Kstardu Won a $75,000 verdict In supreme cour two weeks ago, but Levy lowered th •.ward las'. week. QUICK RELIETFROM CONSTIPATION That Is the joyful cry of thousands slnco Dr. Edwards produced Olive TubleU, the HUbtiUtuta for calomel. Dr. Edwards, a practicing physician for 20 years, and calomel's old-time enemy, discovered tho formula for Olive Tablets while treating patients for chronic constipation and torpid livers. Olive Tablets do not contain calomel, just a healing, soothing vegetable laxative safe and pleasant. No griping is tho "keynote" of these little sugar-coated, olive-colored tablets. They help cause tho bowels and liver to act normally They never force them to unnaturu action. If you have a "dark brown mouth"—bad breath—a dull, tire< feeling—sick headache—torpid live constipation, you should llml quick »ure and pleasant results from ono or two of Dr. Kdwurda Olive Tab lets.

NEW YOHK, Nov. 13.—Even be- oro the .stock market break there lad been introduced into tho senate a bill providing for a tax of B per cent on stock market sales which aro Hold within two months of the date of purchase. There was also a demand for an Investigation of the stock market and this demand has jeen Intensified since so that wo may ook for a definite and determined movement to turn a congressional committee loose on the subject before very long.

And if the Investigation comes I am convinced it will uncover some facto which will not look welt In print. However, it seems to me a far more intelligent way to deal with this subject is by means of an executive commission which, will proceed calmly And Intelligently in the study of tho subject. There Is no doubt that what goes on In the exchanges Is gambling with a small amount of useful speculation. How much the useful speculation is and how useful it is, is a matter about which not a great deal Is known. Stock market defenders have been able to put over a very effective propaganda about all the important economic functions performed by the exchanges, tfhey' flx prices In an open market, stabilize those prices, assume the 'risks of business, provide credit for' business and assist In the distribution of securities.

They would hot be investigated by a congressional committee. Such A committee would concern itself with the personal aspects of the market. We would get a picture of the market at Its worst. Before an intelligent judgment could be formed about it we ought to have a picture of the market as it functions normally and the market at its best. For this reason there is a growing belief that the matter Is a good sub- ject for one of Mr. Hoover'* commissions. ' , (Copyright, 19i9, by ti. P. C. Mew* Service, Inc.)
