IjsUe been marked by annour Attj.i f the hcal weather biI to the effect that the pre-1 p nation In this city has been deficient, but with onlv a few have these reports rngfr with more than pasalng attenT Scranton and -yt0tt nlam In particular, howevojye fortunate that this reglnnT"""0' suffered from a shortage orTWer because of the long-drawn-out deficiency In precipitation, supplied as It la with a water supply system that has a reserve of H Ooo.OO" 00 gallons, a supply that Is estia ated to be sufficient for ::4 wye Figures comrXTViy the local Weather bureau. hoXevcr. bring shArolv to mind the Viation that must necessarily arise fti those localities where tlie reserve systems Hre not so bountiful as Is the case In this citv. The deflniency In precipitation has not been localized, hut lias been general throughout the country, with some regions being particularly hard hit. An Idea of its effect locally can be seen in the following paragraphs. The city of Scranton covers 20 5 square miles, which, reaureu to acres, amounts to 13.1'J0. A deficiency of only one inch of precipi tation means a loss of :5 410 gal lons or 113 tons of water per acre. 12.57 Inch Short in 1930. On the first of this year, the local weather i. bureau in its annual summary slated that the total deficiency in precipitation for the year 1930 amounted to 11.57 inches, the normal precipitation mark for a year in this city bein 3.9 inches. The definloncy for the past year amounted to nearly one-third of a year's normal fall. Figuring the acreage of Scranton, the definlency in precipitation In units of tons reached the alarming total of 1. 649. 700, or, roughly, 4,-12S.S64 800 gallons. This total is bound to he impressive, when It is realized that the total local water reserve system Is approximately 6.O00.O00.00O gallons. There are few persons who have not stood on the shores of I-ake Scranton la aoun to hare what the rlty has long badly needed an emergency landing field for air- planea. jMrertor of ruDiie yvoras rrana J Miller announced today that he has underlaktn preliminary ar-raligeiitenta for tha Installation of bearutia and fioodlighta on the big tract located between l.urne and t'iford street and Tenth and Meri dian aenuea, now being deeloped by the public orka department aa a oaseT'all neia ana rrcreanun center.

Camrliell. vlie president and genrial manager of the Scranton Kiei trie company, to aupply the t.nessarv IlK lit slid that lu. al civic oiganltatlona sill give him financial auiiimrt if funds are ne-ded.

In checking UP todav with City Knglneer Charles f S.broeder on the dimensions of the ifellevue ground leaaed by the cltv from the lilen Alden Coal com panv, learned that It comprises :ji;oo square feet, or approxi mately five and one-half acrea. An Ideal Landing Field When we get the ground prop erly graded It should make an ideal emergency landing field. It Is amply b.rge and centrally located. We will ha It lighted up so that any navl gator of the kl- who haptens to lose his way or run out of fuel can make a landing. Another good feature is that It will be possible for a plane to land on tbe field from all four dircitions." declared Director Mllier Although he Is conlnced that the tract Is plenty large enough for an emergency landing field, the public worka dliector sld that he Intends to prove It bv taking a hop Into the air with his friend Chester t'ross. of the 'roK armored car ser Ice, a navy pilot during the war.

That the new system of collecting dues in District 9 of the miners' union, which extends from Shamo-kin to Pottsville. is not giving satisfaction is stated by officers according to a dispatch today from Mahanoy City. It is added that officers are now making a survey of the region to determine the best system. The No.' 9 officers say that only about half the membership is paying dues at the colliery windows and that others pay to the secretaries of the locals. In the Scranton district the Glen Alden system is operating most satisfactorily, say union officials. The Pittston company operates nearly along the same linos as the Glen Alden. The latter company issues a warrant for one dollar to each worker. listing his name and the name of the colliery. The warrants are then sent to district headquarters where the men are credited with the payments. The Pittston company system does not list the colliery and will likely be asked to adopt the Glen Alden system in full. Local officials would like to see the Glen Alden system accepted by all other companies in the district and say that it should be adopted throughout the whole region.
