This strange school does not concern itself with reading, writing and arithmetic, but with the maintenance and construction of highways and the use and care of roadbuilding j equipment.

December contracts sold at 22.67 cents a pound on a general active buying movement, based upon further unfavorable reports relative to the crop atuation. Lnseasonablv low temperature in the eastern belt and iurther showers were expected to increase boll weevil infestations, while private reports from virtually all sections of lhe belt showed general deterioration. 1 he Liverpool market was very strong, indicating increased anxiety abroad. The volume of buying orders received during the day readily absorbed all available offers. Closing quotations were at the top of the session and the whole list was at new high records for the season, representing an advance of 27.50 per bale since publication of the August government crop report a few weeks ago.

A. Bandeen, of the chamber of , commerce, wired Anthony F.

Mr. Joseph was here personally ’ when the campaign to get a mail poundage guaranty was launched, the establishment of the air line being j contingent on this. He was satisfied 1 with the showing, and the directors j were reported to have ratified the j contractl prepared by the chamber i of commerce. Mr. Bandeen made the statement ■ at the directors’ luncheon Friday | that he understood officials of the Colorado company were now in Washington endeavoring to have the government open bids on the line. HARBOR GRACE, N. F., Aug. 27 (AP). — The monoplane Pride of Detroit hopped off for Croyden, England, at 5:14 a. m., eastern standard time, today. The Stinson-Detroiter, which carries William S. Brock, pilot, and Edward F. Schlee, Detroit business man, is off on the first leg of an attempt to set a new record for a trip around the world. Arriving yesterday afternoon from Old Orchard, Me., the plane was refueled and made ready for a start today to take advantage of the splendid weather which had attended the flight thus far. Dawn today again found the weather well nigh perfect. A light wind blew from the northwest at about ten miles an hour while visibility was excellent. The record of 28 days, 14 hours and 30 minutes for globe circling, which Brock and Schlee hope to break, was set last year by Edward S Evans and Linton Wells, who used ships and trains as well as airplanes. The distance between Harbor Grace and Croydon near London, is 2350 miles. lhe Pride of Detroit has already negotiated easily at an average speed of about 100 miles an hour a hop from Curtiss Field. New York, to Old Orchard, Me., and that of yes- tcrday of about 1000 miles to Harbor Grace. Brock, after looking the plane over carefully here, said it was in perfect shape for the Irans-Atlantic jump. About 350 gallons of gasoline were added to the residue in the tanks here. The plane rose gracefully and circled around the flying field once before heading straight out to sea. There was not a cloud in the sky. Automobiles lined the sides of the field. As the plane took to the air cheers went up from hundreds of spectators, in which Sir John B. Bennett. colonial secretary, joined. Sir John had welcomed the fliers on j their arrival and was on hand early in the morning to bid them farewell. The fliers had slept well for seven . hours and were in excellent condi- j tion.

Schlee and Brock were taking a course for London which should keep them in fairly close touch with the regular steamer lanes, which was expected to result in periodic reports on their progress across the ocean. Search For Redfern Miami, Fla., Aug. 27 (AP).— Preparations were being made here today by Edward Niramier, head pilot of the Biscayne Fliers, leading commercial aviation unit in these waters, to send three seaplanes to the Bahamas and as far south as Turks island to search for the Port of Brunswick, the monoplane, piloted by Paul Redfern, which hopped off Thursday from Brunswick, Ga., for South America. Mexicans in Second Attack On Americans ASHING! ON, D. C., Aug. 27 (AP).—A second attack on Americans in Mexico during this week has occurred with the seizure of the American-owned Amparo Mining company in the state of Jalisco by radicals, who were reported to have besieged 18 Americans and 11 British subjects in their homes near the mines. Earlier in the week Miss Florence Andirscn, of Los Angeles, was shot and fatally wounded during an attack on her train by a band of Mexicans near Acoponeta, Nayarit. While awaiting further details today of the seizure and the safety ot the barricaded Americans, Washing ton government officials were in formed in official press dispatches that the Mexican government had already taken measures to assume charge of the situation and afford military protection to the beseiged officials of the company, a silver mining concern Whether the seizure was a protest against the Sacco and Van/.etti executions was not determined in lirst reports received late yesterday by the state department from its (iuadala.jara consul. But it appeared in all probability t<> be related as Hamilton Delays I'pa von. England. Aug. 27 (AP).— Captain Leslie Hamilton and colonel F. F. Minchin, who had hoped to start their trans-Atlantic hop to America this morning, announced the start would have to be postponed until Monday at least. the consul, Joseph C. Satterw hitc, , had reported last Sunday that labor agitators had attempted to incite the Am paro workers to take action against foreigners in the event of the execution. His first reports of i the incident, however, only said the j occupation of the mines was by a | “red” syndicate. President Calles was reported in Mexico City dispatches to have instructed the military authorities of Jalisco to afford full protection to the company’s officials, while report* to the Mexican capital’s, newspapers said there was no violence nor were the lives of the Americans aiul Britishers endangered In the seizure. President Calles also ordered the j department of industry to take 1 charge of the situation to effect a settlement The foreigners at the mines with the exception of the 30 besieged per* | sons, had left for Guadalajara, -*0 j I miles away, according to the state j department advices. lhe mining properties were reported to be sut- j fering considerable loss through j stoppage of work and are in danger j [of being flooded, lhe managers ot j J tlie Amparo Piedro Bola and \m:i zapan mines also were said to have I ' reached Guadalajara, saying they | had been compelled to leave their ' j offices by armed municipal forces j I obeying instructions from the st;*tc- I ant horit ics. That consul Satlerwhile h.»d feared the outcome of the anti- foreign propaganda in the region was revealed by his report that he had drawn the attention last Sunday of the federal military commander at Guadalajara to the threatening situation. Th»' governor of Jalisco, Marcarito Ramires, is said to have made a visit to the mining district to effect a termination of the conflict. For the time being the American embassy at Mexico City is in charge ot the situation, lhe embassy officials immeihatelv made vigorous representations to the Mexican government for federal military protection for the besieged Americans and the mining properties.

Fedfern. DRUNSWfcic Ga., Aug. ° 27 (AP). —With the blackness of two moonless nights behind him, Paul Redfem today sped his giant monoplane through its second successive dawn and onw’ard to the goal of his solitary flight to Brazil, unless a whim of nature or mechanics has stopped him short in a tropic region out of touch with an eagerly waiting world. Only once in his journey have even vague tidings been received of this newest viking of the clouds. Thursday night a vessel reported him about 300 miles east of Nassau, Bahamas, but this information remains unconfirmed. Scarcity of news was not translated into alarm, however, for the course that Bedfern laid out carried him over virtually trackless seas and land. Continued silence will not become portent of danger until the hour of his planned arrival has passed—early tonight if he flies to Bio de Janeiro, or near noon today if low fuel supply or another cause prompt shim to swerve eastward to Pernambuco, on the coast. One further contingency would land him at Para, northwest of Pernambuco, and almost 1500 miles directly north of Bio de Janeiro, the major objective of the daring pilot who catapulted into space from Glynn Isle, near here, at noon Thursday. Para was his intended landing place if adverse winds and weather force too rapid consumption of fuel, iu the opinion of Paul J. Varner, chairman of the local committee sponsoring the flight. Badio stations, ships and lighthouses sprinkled on and near his southeasterly route across the equator are alert to his voyage and plan to flash to the world the first news they have of Bedfern or his plane.
