14 A Mf BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE, NEW YORK, SUNDAY, MAY 24, 1931. Fleet of Planes To Be Carried By the Akron Navy Dirigible, Being Built, lo Have Room for 5 Scout Machines FALLEN HEROES ARE HONORED Washington, May 16 OT) A fleet of airplanes able to hop off in mid air to meet any attack will be housed in the new navy dirigible Akron now ncaring corripletioif at the Goodyear-Zeppelin hangar; in Akron. The airship will be the first in dirigible -history to can'y airplanes as part of its equipment. Pioneering in a new field, designers of the 6.500,000 cubic-feet air-thip to be launched this Summer, are drawing on the Navy's experiments with the Los Angeles in attaching and detaching planes. The airplane compartment, housing four and later five heavier-than-air craft, probably will be one of the last of the Akron's features to be completed. Actual plane tests will not be made until after the airship's trial flights at Akron. A trapeze for launching and catching the planes is being de velopcd, which is an improvement over the one used on the Los An peles. A specially built rail to hold the planes within the airship also is being constructed. "A system of four mono-rails to support the planes has been dictated by the dimensions' of the room allowed for airplane storage," according to Commander Gurland Fulton, Navy construction corps expert. The storage room win measure roughly 70 feet long by 60 ojf 70 feet wide. The four pails radiaflhig frorrt above the centrl opening in the bottom will accommodate one plane each. A fifth plane may be suspended from tMe trapeze." Such planes as now are available will be used at first, the commander said, but, eventually,- a special type fhip will be used. Each plane will carry an engaging hook on its upper wing. A tube carrying the hook will extend forwand far rjpugh to art as a partial guard protecting the propeller against damage In striking the cross-bar of the trapeze. As the plane approaches the trapeze, which will extend 15 feet or more below the dirigible, the hook will be locked to the' crossbar automatically and the shock absorbed by movement and friction of the support. The plane then may be pulled by a winch into the storage compartment within the dirigible and attached to the monorail pulley and pushed over to its position. The planes are expected to add to the scouting values Of the airship and aid in warding off attacks Id war operations. The navy's interest in using airplanes with airships dates from 1919, when a light plane was launched from a lightcr-than-air craft. Serious study of the possibilities began in 1927 with the Los Angeles after attaching and launching experiments had been made by the Army Air Corps. The first attachment of a service type plane to a dirigible in flight was made in 1929 by Lt. A. W. Gorton and at the 1929 National Air Races the first transfer of a passenger by plane from airship to ground was carried out successfully.

Old Paris Mansion Recalls Great Love Home of 'Travelers Club' on Champs Elysees, Built by Nobleman as Shrine for Adored Wife, Left Unchanged by Time By GUY HICKOK Eaitle Bur, Paris, May 15 The only building left unchanged in the Avenue des Champs Elysees is the residence that now houses the "Travelers Club." Behind this dignified and rather solemn facade, thpugh nothing suggests it now, burned one of those passions that make a legend. Here lived "La Paiva," lancer, whose husband so adored her that When she died he placed her body in a crystal coffin, in alcohol, and kept lt in a room of his chateau as a kind of altar. Living, this house was a shrine for her. Into it the Count Henckel von Donnersmarck crowded every art treasure with which his fortune could surround her. Hired Great Artists In 1865, when it was built, the bath of onyx and silver was one of the city's marvels. Marble, bronze, mosaic an inlaid floors made the place a treasure house. Most of the famous artists of the time were commissioned by von Donnersmarck to make an interior worthy of the dancer. Dalou, Carriere-Belleuse, Legrain, Lenormand, Baudry. Delaplanche carved and painted for her. It was toward the end of the Second Empire. Paris under Napoleon III was a little crazy with gold braid, clanking sabers and plumed hats very ornamental on parade but not adapted to the coming war with Prussia. Up at the end of the wide avenue workmen were building the great Arch of Triumph, to the first Napoleon it is true, but from which the third Napoleon hoped to shine a little in reflected glory. Banished by War Von Donnersmarck was proud of his beautiful dancer; and had her keep open house. Names on the list of guests make a roll of fame of the time. Then came the France-Prussian War, and the Polish-Jewish ballet queen and her German count had to leave Paris for a time. It wa a short war; and they were soon back in the Champs Elysees. This time the house was a hive of Intrigue. La Paiva tried international politics, managecr to bring Leon Gambetta, one of the founders of the Republic into her drawing room tried to arrange that he should meet Prince Bismarck there nearly succeeded. Somebody spoiled it by circulating the story that Count Henckel von Donnersmarck had stood in the entry in German parade uniform to watch the German Army march down the Champs Elysees. La Paiva was accused of being a spy. Both she and the count were hooted at a theater; and the foreign minister advised them to leave the city to avoid, more and worse. Go to Silesia To a chateau In Upper Silesia Count Henckel took his beautiful dancer, where she died in 1884 at the age of 65. The Count married again but so great was the hold upon him of La Paiva that he let no day pass with out shutting himself for a time in the room with the crystal coffin. It was only a little before the Great War that he gave up the rite. Death stopped him. Few changes have been made in the house in the Champs Elysees. Even the Travelers Club, its present owner, has kept lt almost intact The onyx and silver bath is maintained as a museum piece, and the club bar la in the dressing room, The house is full of men, as always. Coffin Sidetracked; Damages Awarded Special Correspondence of The Eagle Paris, May 12 The Outer Circle Railway Company of Paris has been mulcted in $125 damages In an action brought by a citizen who sued because a coffin containing the body of his mother-in-law was lost in transit. It seems that the coffin was to have been brought from one station on the line of the railroad to another, but the coach in which the casket had been placed was mislaid in the process of shunting. The funeral party had assembled for the burial and had a long wait in consequence. The suit was brought as a result, and the court has just handed down a decision in favor of the son-in-law.

He was assisted in the service by Mrs. Ida Schoenfelder, president of the auxiliary, and Mrs. Elsie Littwitz, secretary. After placing the wreath, Postmaster Firmin purchased the first poppy in the buddy poppy appeal which- opened officially yesterday. He made his purchase from Commander Max Michaels while Edward Haussman, chairman of the drive, looked on. The Veterans of Foreign Wars will conduct memorial services today in all national cemeteries of the country. Widow to Administer J. F.

Mr. Savage, broker, was a member of the Stock Exchange. He was only 46. Besides the widow, five children, Edna, Joseph Jr., Marion, Daniel and Thqmas Savage, share in the estate. Pink Rats and Purple Fish Visible Without Rose Glasses This is the story of a unique offer, made in an attempt to get Brooklyn money back into circulation. Charles W. Flelschmann, breeder of rats, mice and tropical fish extraordinary, is willing to produce a rat, mouse or fish of any color you want. There is no catch to it. If you want to have a purple rat, or a red-white-and-blue fish, Mr. Fleisch-mann will give you one. He has his laboratory at 107 Flatbush Ave. On certain colors, he will be able to meet your demand imediately. On others, he says, you may have to wait a year before your order is filled. But it will be filled. It isn't as crazy as it sounds. Mr. Fleischmann is perhaps Brooklyn's leading student of methods of breeding animals and fish. He Is particularly interested In coloration. Adhering strictly to the Mendel theory, he has actually bred rats with blue, pink and chocolate colored fur. What's more, at the present time he has spotted rats and ones that are black to the waist and white the rest of the way down to their tails. The fish which Mr. Fleischmann also offers to supply in any desired shades are as interesting as the rats. There is the Siamese Fighting Fish, for instance, which builds a nest of bubbles in which to hatch its young. This fish has responded readily to color tests. It is to be seen in blue, scarlet and faun. Others which have produced startling color effects are the Zebra fish and the blood-fin.
