The government, through Its Socialist party leader. Indaloclo 1'rlcto, "Tho Strong Man," said there must ho division of largo estates and "nationalization" of all kinds of big business. For the present, he added, "Spain Is not ready or well enough developed for pure Communism."

Christ Jesus Topic at Science Church Jesus' words, 1 "Clod sent not his Son "Into tho world to condemn tho world; but that the world through him mlghl bo waved, " wore tho Uoldcn Text In tho Lesson-Sermon on "Christ Jemis" on Sunday In all branches of Tho Mother Church, Tho First Church of Christ, Scientist, In Hoston, Massachusetts. Among tho Scriptural citations In tho TjCRHon-Sormon wero these verses from John: "There was a man sent from God, whoso name was John. Th'o samo camo for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all mean through him might bellcvo. . . John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was ho of whom I spake, ho that, coineth after me Is preferred before mo: for ho was before me. And of his fullness htivn all wo received, and grace for grace. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth cume by Jesus Clu'lst. N'o man I hath seen God at any time; the | only begotten Ron, which Is In tho 1 bosom of the Father, ho hath declared him."

DA Y HAS DAWNED FOR AVIATION TRAFFIC COP (Atsocfatcit Preit Leaned wire) LOS ANGELES, Aug. 31.—Tho day of tho aviation traffic cop has dawned. Ho never writes a ticket and never raises his voice, but his word Is law at a skyway Intersection 30 miles wide. With J10,000 worth of scientific Instruments ho guards the safety of hundreds of human lives, riding In millions of dollars worth of airplanes each day. Out at Union Air Terminal, third busiest airport In the nation, what used to be a. IMl-aere farm now raises bumpi'r crops of passengers and freight for three airlines. .Standing In his glass enclosed tower, busy as tho proverbial one- armed paper hanger, Chief Airport Controller Mack 13. Tail admitted today, "1 guess our Job Isn't much dlt- fercnl from tho bluecoat who waves at automobiles and street cars downtown." "But It's a llttlo mbra technical," ho added. Frirty-four times a day tho big transports of United Air Lines, T\VA and Western Air Express shuttle In and out, going or. coming from Kansas City, Salt Lake, San Francisco and San Diego. A hundred times a day private craft take off or land. Army and navy planes average 20 visitations dally. Straightening out this air traffic In efficient order Is the airport control tower, whoso system was established lost Juno under Tail, then veteran radio expert of United Air Lines. Tho only one west of Chicago, tho control's operation to dato has been perfect. Three men assist Tail—all with federal rallng In radio, meteorology, air traffic regulations and kindred subjects—and the tower control con- tinues 24 hours a day, seven days a week. At least 10,000 rules now govern air traffic, and there aro regular monthly supplements. It Is mandatory on a controller to report all Infractions to tho air commerce bureau, which has set definite penalties. A sample minute from an aviation traffic cop's day: Inbound transport pilot, 15 miles away, asks for landing Instructions by radio. Controller sweeps his Instrument panels In a glance, eyes the field and answers Into an overhanging microphone: "Wind southwest 4, barometer 20.80, field la clear, use northeast runway, gato No. 3." A racing monoplane, gaily colored like an Insect, crawls out from a hangar. The controller picks up a "beam gun"—a light rcflcclor barrel with pistol grip and peep sights— and signals Iho ship to a vacanl strip of paving at one end of the field. Twin motors roaring, an airliner rolls up In front of tho passenger building, while tho controller turns to his public address system "mike." announces tho route and departure time to travelers on tho ground floor. Tho GO seconds aro almost up as the controller scans the latest message sent on tho federal airways teletype tlckor. Another transport, miles away, breaks In on the radio.
