January and February averaged about the same as this year hut December was about 10 degrees warmer. The record at St. Paul goes back to 1820.

UP)-With one speed mark already to the credit of its sister ship, a swift monoplane which may assault other air records waited in a hangar here today for Col. Charles A. Lindbergh. Embodying a combined retractable landing gear-streamlining feature that is the product of the flying colonel's brain, a trim Lockheed Sirius plane proved its mettle yesterday in the first long test flight made since the Lindbergh idea was adopted. With Vance Breese, test pilot at its controls, the ship sped from Oakland to Burbank--estimated 3a5 miles airline--in one hour and 33 minutes, lowering the previous mark of the hop almost 20 minutes and averaging 229 miles an hour. A similar plane with a higher powered engine is awaiting Colonel Lindbergh's pleasure at the plant here. ,. "Colonel Lindbergh's suggestion that landing gears should be retractable and slide up into the wing ! while in flight, increased (.he speed 1 of the plane by about 32 miles an hour "-Russell Peck, superintendent of the Lockheed plant, said. "The ship flown by Breese had a 420 horsepower motor. Colonel Lind berth's is powered with a 650 horbe power engine. This should add 21 miles an hour to the colonel's new, plane letting it compare favorabl with any ship flown excepting spe nlal racing jobs."

This unique bicycling costume lias no place in the modern woman's wardrobe. But, strange to say, the old fashioned method of roasting coft'ee still persists. There is one coft'ee which has kept pace with the times. Nash's Toasted Coffee is a truly different coffee--a modern coffee. It is different because it is toasted--while other coffees are still roasted. Toasting, scientists have found develops 35.7%' more flavor from the same green coffee than old fashioned roasting.
