LAFAYETTE, Ind., August 4.-
"There's no place like home," as
far as the 1929 Purdue football
squad is concerned, for the Boiler-
maker's schedule for this fall seems
drafted for the convenience of
Hoosier grid fans who are anxious
to follow Jimmy Phelan's eleven
throughout the entire campaign.
Six out of the eight games on the
schedule will be played in the home
sate of Indiana, one game just
over the state line in Chicago and
the only jaunt of any consequence,
as fa- as distance is concerned, will
be to Madison, Wisconsin, where
the Old Cold and Black will furnish
the Homecoming opposition for
Glen Thist lethwaite's Badgers.
The Boilermakers will be well
acquainted with the home folks be-
fore they make their first venture
in a foreign atmosphere, for the
season opens with three straight
appearances in the Ross-Ade sta-
dium. In one of the outstanding
early season games in the Middle
West, Phelan* will send his eleven
against thehKansas Aggies on Oct-
ober 12. The Michigan game will
provide the first opportunity in
years for Hoosier fans to watch the
Wolverines perform on Indiana
soil, and one of the biggest crowds
of the season is expected for the
game. The three-game home stand
will come to a close on October 19
when the state rivalry with the
same eleven from DePauw is re-
newed.
The Old Gold and Black will step
just over the state line into Chi-
cago for its annual invasion of the
Midway on October 26, when
Stagg's Maroons will attempt to get
revenge for the 40 to 0 drubbing
they received last year when Welch,
Caraway and Harmeson, the same
backfield trio that is available this
season, ran wild. The only other
out-of-state game of the season
will follow the next Saturday, Nov-
ember 2, when Phelan takes his
hopefuls to Madison for a renewal
of the . Purdue-Wisconsin series,
that has developed some of the
most spectacular battles in the Big
Ten in recent years. Last fall the
Boilermakers battled to a 19 to 19
tie with the Badgers.

Gentlemen:
Having been a user of Edgeworth
for over eight years, I can truthfully
say that it is the best on earth. I am

enclosing a little ditty that I believe
expresses my sentiments entirely:
Old Man Joy and Old Man Trouble
Went out for a walk one day.
I happened to pass when they met
on the street
And I overheard them say,
Said Old Man Trouble, "She's as
wrong as she can be,
There ain't no fun in anything to
me, why
I was just talking' to Old Man
Sorrow,
And he says the world will end
tomorrow."
Then Old Man Joy he started to
grin,
And I saw him brink; out that
OLD 1ILETIN,
Then OLD JOHNNY RI AR was
next on the scene,
And he packed aim full from the
OLD BLUE TIN,
And I heard him say as he walked
away,
"You have to have a smoke screen
every day.
When a man gets the blues, and he
needs a friend,
He can f nd consolation in the OLD
BLUE TIN,
And I jist don't believe on all this
earth
There's a thing that'll match good
old EDGEWORTH."
Yours very truly,
F. H. McMurray

That the recent endurance air-
plane record of 420 hours, 21 min-1
utes, and 30 seconds made by the
St. Louis Robin plane in charge of
Dale Jackson and Forrest O'Brine
at St. Louis was due in great part
to work done three years ago in
the laboratories of the University
of Michigan through the Depart-
ment of Engineering Research has
been brought out by facts not
learned until thq end of the flight.
The record-breaking flight was
made entirely with a certain type
of aviation gasoline the formula
for which was worked out as the
result of experimental work done
for the Association of Natural Gas-
oline Manufacturers by Professor
George Granger Brown of the De-
partment of Chemical Engineering
through the Department of Engi-
neering Research, begun in July,
1929. This fuel is a development
from natural gasoline whose possi-
bilities as an aviation fuel were
realized- by Professor Brown and
Frederick Foster, at the time in
charge of advertising activities for
the Association of Natural Gasoline
Manufacturers.
Robin Flight Was Test
It now develops that the record-
breaking flight of the St. Louis
Robin differed in some respects
from other re-fueling flight which
have recently attracted so much
attention. It was arranged by the
manufacturers of the plane and
designed primarily as a factory
test. For this reason the officials
of the Company called upon their'
laboratories to designate the fuel
to be used and the particular brand)
already mentionedwas specified. A
supply of this fuel was bought
through ordinary channels from a
St. Louis distributor and the fact;
that it was being used exclusively!
was not known to the manufactur-
ers of the gasoline until after the
plane had been in the air more
than 100 hours.
As soon as the manufacturers of
the fuel learned that their gasoline'
was being used and that there was
a very lively possibility that a new
record would be established they;
loaded a 1,000 gallon truck with
the fuel-as there was no adequate

I supply in St. Louis--and started it w

save the flight.
First Trial at Tulsa1
A first test of the new fuel was!
made at the McIntyre Air Port,
Tulsa, Oklahoma, on December 9,;
1926, at which time the experi- a
mental work in charge of Professor
Brown had been proceeding in the!-
laboratories of the University for ;________
some time and the possibilty of - _ _
developing a far superior aviation
fuel from natural gasoline had al-
ready been realized. The tests at
Tulsa were witnessed by Professor
Brown and by Mr. Foster, the lat-C
ter an aviation enthusiast who was
so much impressed by the results of
the test flight that he persuaded Every Afternoo
one of the commercial companies
to go into the manufacture of this!
fuel on a large scale. The same
fuel has scored other achievements ; Ca

Has High Volatility
The peculiar virtues of this fuel,
according to Professor Brown, are
its very high volatility and conse-
quent ready vaporization which
makes it peculiarly suitable for use
in the very long manifolds re-
quired in airplane motors and frees
these motors almost entirely fromI
the valve troubles which have been
the chief obstacle in the endurance
flights.
