When land was cheap Ills policy was to huy more land. Planting and harvesting the Immense acreage was a gigantic um'orlakiiig, but .Mr. Weaver's greatest problem came in Hie wake of his fleet of combines—machines which cut the grain and threshed It In one operation. All the wagons and truck he could muster could not carry the .grain to shipping points ns fast as It was threshed. So he was compelled to deposit. It on the ground.

OF BIG DIRIGIBLE It Flew from Lakehurst to Washington for the Ceremonial Today, (Hy The Associated Press) Washington, Nov. 25.—Americanization of the giant dirigible ZR-3 —tho last o. tho historic lino of German Zeppelins—was completed today In a setting of symbolical of t , peacofttl ways she Is to follow. The flutter ot white pigeons, released by the hand of Mrs. Calvin Coolldge, ant the rush aloft of a myriad ot bright toy balloons, were the chosen outward slgts ot tho big cruiser's re-chrlstening oa tup American ship "Los Angeles." Trouble Landing. The air cruiser hud serloua dlfti; cuLy In making a landing at Boiling Field. While I he president and other high officials waited for moro than an hour to witness the christening ceremony, the big cruiser made repuated unsuccessful nttcmpts In nogotlate the narrow landing field without freeing some of her helium charge, but navy officers finally decided that a partial deflation was necessary to bring her down. , Had to Partly Deflate. Rear Admiral Moffett, chief ot the navy's air forces, advised the ship's commander by radio to release a part ot the gas charge but there followed still another delay while the vessel maneuvered above the field in an effort to settle down on nu even keel. The first attempt to land after releasing helium also was unsuccessful. An air current forced her upward ns Rbe cleared the barrier hills about the field, and she beaded off again to lake position for another try. This time tho ground crew was able to catch hold of tho cruiser's landing -ropes and began hauling her down. A National Salute. All the officials of the government and many envoys from other InndS'fethered at Boiling Field for the ceremony. Only a hint of the military was permitted to eutor into the exorcises, shearing away the mystical "ZIl" designation so reminiscent of ! the war. The martial touch was confined to a national salute of twenty-one guns from a nearby naval battery and the playing ot the Star Spangled Banner by u navy hand. The Los Angeles is designed tor miu-mllltnry purposes only; hut precise duties remain to he determined and she remains for the time being lu the keeping of the navy, which received her from her German builder utter her flight across the Atlantic. Arrived at Noon. Hidiug the air for the first time with an American crew, the glistening flyer was brought to Washington from Lakehurst under perfect behavior. She arrived over the cliy at 12:50 p. m. and before descending for .the christening, circled gracefully above the While House tlie Capitol and the towering Washington Monument, her long grey body outlined sharply against a canopy ot fleecy, white clouds. All of the morning had been overcast, but just before the cruiser made her appearance overhead the sun broke through to brighten her welcome. Government Business Stopped. Business In the government departments virtually stoppod as cabinet officials, senators and thousands In the humbler walks of public service craned their necks for a look at the nation's new monster of tho air. Na y officers watched her performance with greater Interest because I- was bor first trial on this side ot tho Atlantic, her first venture in the hands of American naval man and tho first, time she bn' taken th air using helium instead ot hydrogen lu her inflat.on tanks The uppenranee over the American capital of a Zeppelin in Iter .war paint, during the eventful days of '17, could scarcely Have do moralized more completely the workaday life of Washington. But today's visitor found only a wholehearted welcome, both In her own right und because she symbolized a new friendship liet.ween land of her nativity and the the J. M. V country to which she has come. The Landing. Three hundred men. were formed on Boiling Field to land the ship when she began hovering overhead. They included detachments of sailors and mnrlnes from the presidential yacht Mayflower and of men from the naval air station, In service uniform. Grouped about tho. field were 1 .200 automobiles, the limit of capacity. A largo space was set aside for those who trudg. eil tho distance to got tt glimpse of the ceremonies. Kept Air Free. In contrast to previous occasions hero when famous craft or flyers came over, the air today except for two photographic planes wan free. The navy had requested that no machines go aloft while the Los A^y.oles were overhead. The actual christening ceremonies, as planned at the navy department was brief.

Delay In Landing. There was some delay in Inndlng tho big ship. In the first ntteniot to bring her down her navigators, in a brisk wind, overshot tho field. It was decided lo send her up again, and bring her to n more favorable position for landing. After a turn down the Potomac the dirigible cruised back, bead*: ing Into the wind, but when the mooring ropes were cast, ot tho ground the crew was unable to fasten grappling lines to them, and tor the third time Uie ship began maneuvering for position. The Rope Broke. Although this time the cruiser kept close enough to the ground to drop forward drag ropes Into' tho hands of tho bluejacket landing crew, one of the ropes broke close to the ship, as 100 men tugged to hold'the big ship to earth. Commander Klein was endeavoring to avoid opening valves and releasing helium in order to get his ship down, as she will need her full supply on her homeward voyage. Took Air at 9:05 A. M. Iinkchursl, N. J„ Nov. 25.— Tho German built dirigible ZK-'J took tho air at p :U5 a. m. at the naval air sta:Ion today ami headed southwest for Boiling Field, Washington, where she was to be christened "Los Angeles" by Mrs. Calvin Coolldge this afternoon. The big craft made an easy fake- off, with four of her five motors whirring as she headed into a 25 mile southwest wind: The fifth was set going ua the ship rose and soon the Zft -3 was tailing away Into tho hnr .B to tho southwest. Commander Klein's parting word . was that be would hustle along to I his destination, hoping to arrive there lu time to lont around over Washington before the christening, ceremonies. Ho expects to return I here by !) tonight. Willi a ground wind of only eight ] miles au hour from tho southeast sweeping the field, naval officers asserted that the ZR-U would have little trouble making what will be | her first flight in the United States since her arrival under the guidance of a German crew frqin Fried- richshiifen, Germany. 'i 390 Men Held On. Taken from the hangar Hhurtly utter six o'clock, the ZR -2 was carried to a point several hundred feet from the huge mooring mast hero and with 350 men clinging to her landing ropes was held lo tho ground.' The lino of flight to the capital carries her over Trenton, N. -1.. Philadelphia, Wilmington, Del., and Baltimore. Tho crew ot the ZH-3 today numbered 42 men, Including eleven of the Gorman crew. Commander J. H. Klein, Jr., acting commandant at the naval air station was in command. LleuL Commander Sidney 11. Kraus. who also made Hie trip from Germany was the ship's engineering officer. Two photographers, one representing the navy and another a news reel corporation, also were nboard. To Release Pigeons. A trap containing 3'J" homing pigeons was fastened to the nose of the airship. The pigeons were to be released by Mrs. Coolldge as part of tho christening ceremony and their return here w'll bo symbolic of completion ot the naming of the craft. The Zll-3 was "walked out'' of the hangar in about 45 minutes, a shorter time than ever was needed for the Shenandoah. With the rising of the sun, the. heal expanded the helium gas and she easily became responsive to the breeze. MISSING BANKER WAS SHOT TO DEATH.
