NEW PRINCIPLE IN FLYING UNDER TEST Italian Engineers Working on Basis Used in "Big Bertha" Guns Rome, March 4. Application to aviation of the principles used in the shelling of Paris by the long-range "Big Bertha," of the Germans, is being studied by a group of the most prominent aeronautical engineers in Italy. ' They hope to evolve an entirely new type of aeroplane of unprecedented speed. They think It even possible for it to fly from Rome to Buenos Aire's in ten hours. Great secrecy surrounds the expert n.ents, which have been going on foi several months. It Is stated, however, that the basic problems have been solved, although many technical details must be settled. Like the shells of the "Big Bertha," the projected 'plane is to fly at enormously high altitudes. A catapult start is to enable It quickly to soar to a height of 8,000 metres or more, after which Its gigantic motors are expected to hurl It through the rarefied air at record speeds. The needs of both men and motors for air at high altitudes are to be met by apparatus on board the plane.' The engineers refused to explain ffything beyond this brief outline of their endeavor. "The world Is en-t'tled to scoff, as it always does, on the eve of a scientific discovery such as ours," said one. WINDSOR DRIVER IS HELD Woman Dies of Injuries After .

Boston, Mass., March 4. Sir Ar-thur Conan Doyle has come publicly tn the defence of Mrs. L. R. G. Cran-don, better known as "Margery" the medium, about the authenticity of whose phenomena so much contro-. versy has raged. The most recent exposure of "Margery," by Dr. and Mrs. J. 3. Rhine, is branded by the British author and spiritualist as "colossal impertinence." The counter-attack' by Sir Arthur is contained in a communication received today by the Boston Heralti, entitled) by the author "The Cran-don Circle.;' Not only does he denounce the conclusions of the Rhines, but he affirms his own belief in "Margery,'' and pays tribute to her and to her husband for patient pioneering. Recounting how he once experi mented with the Crandons in his own apartment in London, Sir Arthur writes: ' "We certainly ha? phenomena and I have no doubt that they are cenu- e ones. It was largely my advlcel which led to Dr. Crandon laying the remarkable psychic powers of his wife before the public for the unselfish purpose of broadening our knowledge. Had I foreseen the Btu-pidity and malignancy which he was destined to encounter, I should hiyre hesitated to urge him on. "I read this mofntng in your columns a so-called 'exposure' of Dr. and Mrs. Crandon. (Margery) by a Pr. Rhine. I afterward wrote to my friends to say that I thought Job was a hot-blooded and Impetuous person compared to them," wrote Sir Arthur. 'Consider the colossal impertinence of this attack. The Crandon circle has been attended by hundreds of inquirers, some of whom have sat lot a great number of times. These sitters have included professors, doctors, conjurors, trained observers of all sorts. The vast majority have en dorsed the phenomena. 'Where there have been doubts, no reasonable explanation of the results have been forthcoming. When any objection has been raised, the procedure has been moamea in or der to meetthlB objection. "And now comes Dr. Rhine with his eagle eye, and on the strength of a single .sitting, he broadcasts the opinion that all these years of ceaseless labor and contention have I PACKARD I The Best Place to Buy a Used Car OUR used cars are fairly priced, because each one was bought on a good business basis.
