MANILA, June 17. Only one-third of the Filipino children of school age are enrolled in the public schools according to a report of Luther B. Bewley, director of the Bureau of Education for the. Philippines, made public today. The report says : "Although popular education has made great strides since American occupation, still it has a long way to go before reaching all children. The census of 1918 put the number of children aged 6 to 17 at 2,776,925. The enrollment December, 1920, in all Philippine public schools was only 933,678. Professor Edgar L.

Aloha Market TELEPHONE 50 PASADENA, Cal., June 17, The odic-activity ray, more powerful than the X-ray or the radium ray, is to completely conquer the. air. . The giant sky liner, safe as any conveyance ever perfected, equal in luxury and comfort to the palatial greyhounds of the ocean lanes, is a possibility and probability of the near future. Such " were the announcements made today by the discoverer of this ray. Professor Edgar L. Hollingshead, scientist of this city, in an exclusive interview for the Hilo Tri bune. . For, he declares, this powerful ray will make a huge steel sky ship as light as a bubble. Not only this, but the odic-activity ray, Prof. Hollingshead claims, will take the place of radium, valued at $120,000 a gram, and revolutionize the scientific world in the treatment of certain diseases. And the cost of lightening metals, of using the rays for medical pur-, poses, is so minute as to- be almost negligible. The odic-activity ray, according to Professor Hollingshead, so far has successfully changed the weight of metal over 100 times in as many tests"; it has caused hard clay to explode the instant the ray touched it; rock, opaque, to the eye, has. been made transparent,, and by means of the ray an actual photograph has been taken through.' a solid sheet of lead. One application of the ray on metal has caused it to become permanently cold beyond the possibil ity of ever becoming heated. And it has instantly changed water into its primary gases hydrogen and oxy- jgen. i But of .all the uses of the ray, eluding treatment for medical pur poses, that of lightening metals is the greatest, and will revolutionize the traffic of the world, states Professor Hollingshead. Ships for passenger and freight will be of slight service; railroads will be. tossed into the discard, and automobiles "will be reduced to serviceable vehicles for taking short drives about the city. In their stead will come individual airships 25 feet in length; larger aircraft the equivalent of the four, six or eight passenger touring cars; and so on,, up to the giant sky liners of incalculable size. , These giant liners will appear as long, round, hollow needles, Prof. Hollingshead declares, pointed at each end, and will travel without any visible means of ' propulsion. The power for propulsion will be obtained from the electrical currents of the air; magnetic and light ray controls will prevent collisions; and gyroscopic controls will keep the ship on its course when deflected by' other controls. All in all, this most modern of scientific discoveries will provide convenience, comfort and safety, it is claimed. And the formula for this almost inconceivable revolutionizing process is simple: apply the odic-aHvity ray to metal,1 making' it .lighter' than air, and build the sky liner. The metal will lose none of its strength, and the cost Is . trifling, ',' BANKER IN AIRPLANE -v' BROUGHT BACK COIN COPENHAGEN, June 17.-M. Bam- aaa Ann Ing, a banker, casnea a uv.wu ..ir tnr .

COLLEGE STUDENTS STRANDEDJN HARBIN by The Associated Press. HARBIN, June 17. There ,-are at present in Harbin more than 250 young Russian students, men and women, who have been stranded by the eastward movement, of refugees following the collapse of the Kolchak government 18 months ago. In Vladi vostok there are as many if not more. A large percentage of these stu dents have completed their high school course. Jhe only institutions of higher education available to them are the Vladivostok Institute of Oriental Languages, and the Vladivostok m i t , i t in.... i it. i i x ecimoiogicai msuiuie, doia oi wnicii are seriously impaired by lack of experienced professors, libraries and equipment. There is even an almost complete lack of textbooks. Toward the end of 1920 Dr. W. H. Bucher, of the American Red Cross, became Interested in the fate of these young people and endeavored to arrange accommodation for them in American educational institutions. When the word i got about, more than 1300 registered for admission. P; S. Troitsky and F. Korapachin-sky, of the educational department of the Chinese Eastern Railway, them-j selves refugees, have perfected an organization in Harbin with the object of assisting students to review, their former courses of study and to ' TRIAL OF MURDER RE HELD IN JULY jy The Associated Pres.

They are also trying to devise means to send deserving, students to America to complete their education and to establish in America some organization to take charge of students upon arrival in co-opeatlon with Harbin enterprise. Prof. Paul J. Blunienthal, io was an Instructor, in the Culver Military Academy 20 years, ago and who- was judge of the district court at Iliele-bei in the Ufa district when the revo-, lution overtook him, is also trying to ensure the future of these young Russians. "Mortt of these young men and women," he said, "are deprived of all means, belonging to families whose only source consists of their culture, having lost their property during the civil war. Their desire to go to America tostudy is promrHed by an appreciation of the sound spirit of American institutions of learning and also by the comparative accessibility of American universities and higher technical, schools. The Harbin refugee committee is almost without funds to carry out its task. No doubt there are many such refugees in Peking, Tientsin and Shanghai who would join others if they saw any way to give their children the possibility of going to America to complete their education. "Among those interested in this endeavor in the States are Mr. Joseph Okulich of Boston, Prof. Borodine, Washington, D. C, and Mr.M. A. Kucenko, of Berkeley, Calif."
