Indianapolis, July 6.-(By A.P.)-
Lieut. L. J. Roth, airman and contest-
ant in the national balloon 'race has
been lost according to announcements
made this afternoon by the Indianap-
olis Chamber of Commqerce, sponsor
of the race. Lieutenant Hull accom-
panied Lieutenant R~oss as aide. The
men came here fromA the naval train-
ing station at Lake Hurst, N. J, for
the contest
The missing balloonists, as is usual,
were supplied with card-bearingi
streamers with instructions to drop
them overboard as the craft drifted
over cities and towns. Not a word,
however, has been received here fromx
the ship, known as the United States
Navy, No. A-5698. ' ,
An unofficial test compiled at" the
Chamber of Commerce gave Lieut.
Robert H. Olmstead, army balloonist,
the lead in distance traveling over Mae

crafts to the ground. Lieutenant:Olm-
stead descended ,fat Manilla, N. Y.
The distance between Indianapolis
and Manilla an an air line is approxi-
mately 500 miles.
According to the test, H. D. Honey-
well, St. Louis, piloting the "St.

ance about 450 miles. He brought his

Advocating the construction of the(
waterway from Great Lakes to the St.
Lawrence as the best means of solving1
the transportation problem for the
United States, Prof. Henry C. Sadlert
of the Marine engineering department,
said, in his lecture yestrday after-
noon on "Our Transportation Problem)
from the Waterway Viewpoint," "the
construction of such a system would
open the whole vast Northwest to for-
eign trade without breaking the voy-
age. The time is coming perhaps in
20 years, when the railroads will no
longer be able to care for the trans-
portation of the produce of this coun-
try. Then a system which will giv$ a
chance for the western farmer to send
his produce to our sea ports will be
most necessary for the economic wel-
fare of the country."
Would Pay For Itself.
Russia will in time pick up, and
resume her vast exorting of wheat
which is one of the staple products
of the west, he said, Then it would be
only fair to the farmerof this country
to facilitate transportation , that he
might export his wheat, and not suf-
fer under the competition of foreign
growers. The engineering problems
of such an undertaking are slight, the
only objections that could be reason-
ably raised are because of the cost.
But the waterway according to Pro-
fessor Sadler would pay for itself in
power within one year.
"The Great Lakes are the most
wonderful system of their kind in the
world. They are navigable through-c
out the whole length. They are the
key note to the whole system," do-
lared Professor Sadler. To join theml
to the ocean is necessary, he said. The
proposal for the construction is to put
a 25 foot waterway through the en-
tire St. Lawrence river. Eighty-five
per cent of the vessels In the world"
do not draw more than 25 feet, so
practically all steamers could go from
the ocean to Duluth.
Railways Inadequate
The other great natural system of
waterways in this country is the Mis-
sississippi river. This great river and
its tributaries touch practically every
state in the Union. The yalley could
support 400,000,000 people adequate-
ly, furnshing heat, light, power, trans-
portation, all the necessities of life.
The problem is to keep it chained1
within its bounds. This could be done
easily said Professor Sadler.
"The whole problem resolves itself
to this," the speaker said, "railway
transportation is too slow, and is too
expensive. Congestion occurs in th
large ities, and soon the railways
will be unable to handle transporta-
tion adequately. The United States is
rich in natural waterways, all we
must do is develop them. Tie cost
of such development would be enorm-
Work on the compilation of the
"freshman Bible," a handbook given
to the yearlings upon their registra-
tion in the University, is well under

The book next fall, it is planned,
will be more worth while as a souven-
ir. In endeavoring to accomplish this
end several changes have been made
In the planning of the work. The
cover will be of imitation, leather in-
stead of the heavy paper which has

been used during the past few years.
The contents of the book will be
much the same, but several small

More stress will be laid on the class,
room; life of the student in the editor-
ial material this fall. The customary
summary of activities and opportun-

It is the plan of the Student Chris-
tian association, which sponsors the
book yearly, to send out a large num-
ber of the works to men sure of com-
ing to the University, thus acquainting,
them with the activities here before
they arrive in the city. In order to do
this, the book will go to press toward
the end of the present month.

Ohio State officials have asked the
University of Michigan athletic asso-
ciation for 7,500 seats for the annual
Ohio State-Mchigan grid battle to
be- held on Ferry field, Oct. 20. .
Every one of the cardboards is ex-1
pected to be sold early in the school
year ;and if 7,500 journey to Ann Ar-
bor from Columbus, it will be the1
greatest throng that has ever ac-1
companied a Scarlet -and Gray elev-
en abroad. Two years ago when the
Buckeye team made the trip and laid
the Maize and Blue low, 6,000 ardentI
followers of the Ohioans came along
with them, up to that time a record
following for the Ohio 'State team.
During the: past few years the an-
nual clash between the two schools
has attracted thousands of fans from
the visiting school. When the Wol-
verines went down to Columbus last
year 15,000seats were reserved for
them, the greatest. number' that ever
couched the followers of a visiting
team in the Middle West. In 1919,
when Ohio got her first victory over
the Wolverines in a decade, thousands
of Buckeye rooters migrated to Ann
Arbor. -
Together' with the Illinois-Chicago
game, the Ohio-Michigan game has
come to be regarded as the Harvard-
Yale battle of'theWept, and during
the past two years it has been consid-
ered one of the most important of all
the football games played in America.
