LANTERN GARDEN NOW HAS AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM Installation of an air conditioning system of the latest type, capable of reducing the temperature of a room over 20 degrees, has just been completed at the Lantern Garden. 7 West Michigan avenue. The conditioning system was built by the Oarage Fan Co. of Kalamazoo, and installed by Shoul-dice Brothers of this city. It is thermostatically controlled, and automatically raises or lowers the temperature of the room according to the number of people in it. The warm air is drawn through a large intake at the back of the room. It passes through cold water In a penthouse located on the roof, and then through filters. After it has been cooled and cleaned, it passes back through piping to the front of the restaurant, where it emerges through small grilled openings. It was necessary to drill a 78-foot well to provide water for the cooling system. Four weeks were required for its installation.

Capital Streamline Train Makes Stop in City In the blistering heat of 102 degrees yesterday, over 400 people gathered at the Michigan Central depot to see the Mercury, new streamlined train of the New York Central railroad system. Although the original schedule did not rail for a stop at Battle Creek, a slow freight preceding it permitted the flier to pause here for five minutes long enough for a hundred people to clamber through the engine cab and car entrances. This "train of tomon-ow" will be used on a Detroit to Cleveland run after finishing an exhibition tour. The train is 641 feet long, and consists of seven full-dimensioned light-weight, steel cars. The locomotive is a streamlined Pacific type driven by steam. The cars, from front to rear, consist of a com bination passenger and baggage coach, full-length diner, kitchen pantry car, a lounge car with semi circular bar, and parlor and parlor observation cars. Outside, the cars are of turtle-back construction, with windows and doors set flush with the exterior walls. Space between the coaches is entirely sealed by a new method, devised especially for the Mercury. Vibration is prevented by fabric fads and rubber buffers between cars and over and under truck springs. All wheels on the train are roller bearing. Vapor heat and the newest air-conditioning system, adapted to year-round use, provide for comfort and adequate ventilation at all times. !EDi OF SCHOOL May Be Obtained at Board Of Education Office in Willard Library.

Shafer Is First Congressional Candidate; Cav-anagh Petitions Out. Paul W. Shafer, candidate for the republican nomination for congressman, qualified to have his name placed on the ballots for the September primary when he filed his nominating petitions at the secretary of state's office in Lansing Wednesday afternoon. Mr. Shafer became the first qualified congressional candidate in the district. Though Rep. Vemer W. Main has taken out his petitions, and some are in circulation in behalf of Howard W. Cavanagh. as a democratic candidate, theirs are not yet ready for filing." Mr. Shafer had this statement to make: "A life-long republican. I shall base my campaign upon the necessity for united opposition of the republican party to the new deal. I shall also stress the necessity for the third district to elect a congressman who. will represent all the people, all the time, rather than one who is pledged to carry out the mandates of an organized minority. "If successful in my campaign, I shall join those in congress who advocate sound, constructive legislation, including that pertaining to old age pensions, which I heartily favor. I have no criticism to make of any of the organized minorities, or their purposes, and will lend my support to any constructive legislation offered by them. "I pledge myself, if elected, to pay strict attention to the business of my district in congress and to do my utmost to give every man and woman, young or old, a square deal."

No one knows that better than the men at the fire alarm office. It seems that every time the weather goes on a rampage either hot or cold the city's residents' turn first to the city's official thermometer, guarded by the firemen at number three station on Cliff street.' So they call the firemen rather, they call the switch board operator at the fire alarm station "Fire alarm office. Temperature? One hundred degrees. You're wel come, j "Fire alarm office. Temperature?! One hundred and one degrees. 1 You're welcome. "Fire alarm office. And so it went Wednesday all day and most of the night. The switchboard lights twinkled like the ftars in an unclouded night sky. And with each twinkle, the operator sang the same song. The operators, who work in eight-hour shifts, have no idea how many calls about the temperature they answered. At one time five outside lines all but the emergency line v. ere busy.
