Support Needed For Oil Rights Bill At Austin Senate bill 51 ai.<J 'house bill 70, both identical and having to- do w'lth revision of the petroleum laws of Texas, have been amended at Austin until they are now satisfactory to all factions, including the cattlemen and the owners of surface rights. The measure» are ready for reporting for a vote In the house and senate, but there is a fear that some of the east Texas representatives xvill not support the measures. Therefore the suggestion comes from friends of the bill that El Pasoans and w^est Texans get into communication w'ith friends In east and south Texas at once and have them urge their representatives to vote for the measure.

Tomorrow Associated Press Permitted To Give Description Of Giant Aircraft. Mineóla, N. Y., July 9.—Again today unfavorable winds from the east prevented the giant dirigible from starting on her return trip to England. Prospects that R-34 would get away between midnight tonight and 8 a. m. tomorrow seemed brighter this forenoon when W. R. Gregg, a %veather expert sent here from Washington, announced that the heavy southeast gale of yesterday had changed to light west w'inds. This situation was favora,ble and would continue probably for 48 hours, he said. MaJ. G. G. H. Coooke, navigator of the dirigible, said it was likely the ship would get away about 4 oclock tomorrow morning. U. S. Offleeri« In«peet Ship. Officers of the United .States army and navy aviation sections have been permHted to Inspect the ship, and «'apt. Samuel T. Moore, of the balloon section of the army, today gave to the Associated Press representative a description of the first lighter-than- air ship to cross the Atlantic. Over all, the R-.14 is 640 feet in length, with four cars, or gondolas, suspended from the cigar-shaped envelope. The forward gondola is occupied by the navigator and pilots .and from it all parts of the ship are con- troled by means of speaking tubes and bell signals. In the rear of the forward gondola is the w'lreless room, which also holds one of the ship’s engines. The two side gondolas eacli contain an engine and are only large enough for two men to work. The rear car holds two engines. Tnxlde of Illsr Bng Is Secret. While the gondolas can be seen by visitors to the field, little or nothing has been allowed to filter out cqn- cerning the inside of the big bag. In side the bag is the deck of the ship. It runs the greater part of the length of the bag and i.«« only nine inches wide, except at its middle where it widens out into a compartment eight by twenty feet, used by the officers and crev/ as a dining saloon. The hydrogen gas—the lifting power off the ship—is carried in compartments inside the envelope. These compartments are at the top of th*=t ship j and are of gold beaten skin, which In ' common language is nothing more then the linings of Intestines of calves. When ready to start on a flight, the final inflation of these gas containers is made. This operation takes place usually at the minimum temperature of the air when the greatest quantity of gag can be taken into the bags. The expansion of gas in the bazs is relieved by releasing w'ater ballast at the rate of ten percent of water in 20 degrees of rising temperature, Also ten percent of water ballast Is released in each 2500 feet of altitude. Fuel Cnrrlert In SI Tank*. When the R-34 leaves the ground It is permitted to rl^e to Its equilibrium, or about as high as It can go. On reaching its equilibrium the engines are started and the flight begins. The fuel—gasoline an 3 oil—is carried in 81 tanks. Sixteen of these tanks are fixed to the framework of the bag structure and the others are known as sliding tanks and can be disoarded as ballast should the occasion arise. The water ballast Is carried in canvas bags of tw*o types. There are eight emergency bags, four forward and four aft, which may be emptied In emergency because they can not be controled. Six other water bags are controled by levers and their contents can be released as desired. The water ballast contains alcohol in sufficient f mount to prevent freezing in high altitudes. Chaira Aboard Ship. The dining salon contains three tables capable of being raised to the upper frame work when not in «se. The salon la large enough to permit half of the crew to eat at a time. The food Is cooked by appliances attached to thp exhaust pipes of the engines. The diners stand at a cupboard, there being no chairs aboard the ship. The crew sleep in light hammocks along the sides of the deck suspended out over the bag proper, an in case a sleeper falls from his ntt there is nothing to prevent him from falling through the bag to death. \ Hensley New I".
