er has been chosen by the asso-'

and the topics selected represent a
wide variety of interests.
Talk On Crime First
First on the schedule is William
Sheperd, a star writer for Collier's
magazine, who will speak on crime
and prohibition, October 23. Ever
since 1924 Mr. Sheperd has been in-
vestigating the prohibition situa-
tion for Collier's and is an author-
ity on the subject. His lecture will
not be a sermon; it will be a start-
ling but accurate picture of the
situation as it exists today. After
five years of careful investigation
the conclusion he reaches is that1
"Crime is Paying Too Well.",
Following Sheperd, LIouis K. Ans-
pacher, America's distinguished
dramatist and orator will appear

CARDINGTON, Eng., Oct. 14 -
Taking advantage of perfect flying
weather, the much criticised Brit-
ish dirigible R-101 swept away
from her mooring mast and made
a 300 mile flight over southeastern
She cruised over London giving.
Londoners a chance to see the lar-
gest airship in the world, which
cost England $5,000,000 to build.
Major G. H. Scott, British aero-
nautic expert, who commanded the1
R-101, said that the flight had beent
very satisfactory. "The whole hand-
ling of this big airship proved
much easier than we had hoped
for," he said. "The noise of the en-
gines was very slight in the pas-
senger cars. It was very comforta-
ble indeed. We passed over Buck-;
ingham Palace, Westminster, then
over the city and then straight
back home. The ship handled very
well and answered her controls
with the greatest ease. We went
easy at first and worked up to
something over 50 miles an hour.
We will have the speed trials later.
"The airship made an average
speed of 55 miles an hour, covering
the three hundred miles in 5 hours
and 34 minutes. Experts are disa-
greed about the speed of which sheJ
is capable. Most of them say that'
the best she can do is less than 85
miles an hour, which she was de-
signed to do."

this afternoon when his youthful
Athletics won the baseball cham-
pionship of the world with a finish
that packed all the thrills of a
story book climax, all the nerve
tingling excitement of a final act
of a melodrama.
The ninth inning of phantasy
became the ninth inning of reality
when the men of Mack, American
League champions, surged from be-
hind to score three runs and beat
the Chicago Cubs, champions of
the National League, 3 to 2, in the
fifth and deciding game of the
Hoover Attends Game
With the President of the United
States and the first lady of the
land to applaud them, joining in
the applause of more than 30,000
fans, the Athletics for the second
straight game demonstrated their
unconquerable spirit by rallying to
win after the game seemed hope-
With two out in the ninth inn-
ing, Bing Miller, veteran right
fielder for the Mackmen, drove the
decisive blow to the score boards,
a two bagger that brought Al Sim-
mons across with the winning run,
after, George (Mule) Haas, raw
boned center fielder, had tied the
count with a smashing home run
over the right field wall as Max
Bishop rested on first.
Deciding Factor in Victory
Miller's drive, with the count two
and two, foiled the last desperate
strategy of the Cubs and their big
right hander, Pat Malone, in pass-
ing Jimmy Foxx intentionally. It
goes down as the $50,000 blow de-
ciding the difference between the
winner and loser share of the
There didn't seem more than the
remotest chance for the Athletics
to win today after they had been
held to two hits for eight innings
by the fast balls of Pat Malone and
after Willy French, pinch hitting
for George Rube) Walberg in the
ninth, had struck out. The Cubs
had driven the hero of the first
game, Howard Ehmke, out of the
box in the fourth inning with a
'vicious attack with two out that
produced two runs that looked like'
a secure lead as Malone mowed.
