Russian Fliers
Resume Long Flight
KETCHIKAN, Alaska, Aug. 10.
- (P) - Sigismund Levanevsky
and Victor Levehenko, Russian
fliers, resumed their California to
Moscow flight at 5:10 p.m. (8:10
pim. E.S.T.) today, hopping off
for Juneau, 225 miles to the
The fliers decided to leave for
Juneau despite a light rain here
and reports of adiverse flying
weather to the north.
Aided by a strong tail wind, the
noted aviators arrived here un-
heralded at 12:55 p.m. today from
Belga, Bella, . C., where they
were forced down Saturday by
rain on the third leg of their
leisurely flight from Los Angeles
to the Russian capital.
School Teacher Drowns;
Five Companions Safe.
MIDEN, Ont., Aug. 10.-(I)-A
Detroit school teacher drowned
and five companions escaped a
similar death here over the week-
end when their skiff, powered by
an outboard motor, was swept
over Moore's falls in the lake
country of Haliburton County.
Details of the accident which
occurred Saturday afterioon,
reached here today from the iso-
lated section near Gull Lake. The
drowned woman was Mabel Wray,
Kern Pritchard of Maiden, an
eyewitness to the tragedy, pulled
two members of the party to
shore while three others gained
shore without assistance.
Pritchard said the pilot of the
beat apparently misjudged the
current above the falls and shut
off the motor too soon. The skiff
was drawn swiftly to the brink of
the falls and toppled into the
white water below.

Asserts He Favors Many
New Deal Measures As
Emergency Actions
Continued from. Page D
these emergency measures or wheth-
er you take the Republican view that
things were bound to get better any-
"My personal opinion, shared by
a great many people who have had
practical and theoretical experience
in governing the country, is that if
the present Democratic administra-
tion had started tapering off its
emergency actions and expenditures
at the expiration dates of'the various
emergency bills instead of contin-
ing them under the name of the New
Deal, we might have had a different
story to tell.
Received Judicial Setback
"But when these measures in more
or less permanent form came before
the Supreme Court the whole pro-
gram received a severe set-back. The
whole spirit of the present adminis-
tration seems to be directed toward
evading the Constitution in order to
carry on its economic and social ex-
periments. In my opinion this at-
titude can only cause confusion and
ultimately lead to a chaotic condition
of public sentiment which will bode
ill for the fundamental principles of
American government.
"For the purposes of this discus-
sion, I'll use only one example. That
is the tremendous concentration of
power in the Federal government per-
mitted through the enactment of
these primarily emergency measures
by Congress, and submitted to by
the people because of the necessity of
drastic action in the interests of re-
covery. Now, under the Constitu-
tion the Federal government has only
such powers as are accorded to it by
that instrument. All other powers
are vested in the sovereign states. But
it is a common practice for the Fed-
eral government in administrative
actions to absolutely ignore the state
governments and to take unto them-
selves the powers that belong to the
Coercion By Federal Aid
"If the states object, the answer is:
'Do as we say, or we'll cut off Federal
aid.' And so men who believe in the
fundamental principles of American
government-states rights, home rule,
and individual liberty, fall away from
the policy of the present administra-
tion. In this category you find most
of the tried and experienced leaders
of the older generation. Most of
them appear to have on principle
found objection to many of the high-
handed practices which have emanat-
ed from Washington.
"While most of them have respect
for the early accomplishments of Mr.
Roosevelt's administration, most of
them are distressed by and appre-
hensive over the evident intention to
circumvent the laws of the land and
arbitrarily carry on their experi-
ment. They are throttling all crit-
cism and opposition by the power of
public money.
"The old leadership objects to these
practices on principle, and believes
that the party is being led away fromi
American and Democratic funda-
mentals by the policies of Mr. Roose-

'Blue' Army Is Attacked
By 'Red' Aerial Forces
In Western Michigan
ALLEGAN, Aug. 10.-(i)-Roaring
down out of.cloudless skies, 77 power-
ful planes of the general headquarters
air force theoretically gassed, bombed
and machine-gunned various en-
campments of the sixth corps, second
army, late today.
Operating as part of the "Red"
army which is attacking a "Blue"
force encamped in this Western
Michigan area, bombers of Langley
Field, Va., swooped over Allegan,
Fennville and New Richmond in the
formation they would use in drop-
ping the 2,000-pound bombs for
which they are fitted.
Pursuit Planes On Defense
Pursuit planes from Selfridge Field,
acted as a defensive force.
The bombers soared over Allegan
at an altitude of 5,000 feet, and then
proceeded to the army concentra-
tion areas to the northwest, simulat-
ing their attack over each camp. The
attack ships, from Shreveport, La.,
swooped close to the tree tops in
power dives to get in position to rain
machine-gun fire on the encamped
The defense planes climbed to high
altitude, then went into power dives
that sent them thundering down and
around the larger ships in huge
circles. All the planes returned to)
Selfridge Field after the maneuver.
Graphic Illustration
The aerial exhibition, witnessed by
a dozen foreign military attaches,
was ordered by Major General Frank
M. Andrews, commander of the GHQ
air force, to give the troops now be-
ing conditioned in the field for the
Western Michigan war games a
graphic illustration of the part played
by planes in modern warfare.
Preliminary to the war games, in-
telkigence officers received a report
that the "enemy" troops of the me-
chanized "Red" army had invaded
Eastern Michigan and were encamped
at Selkirk Lake.
Word of the invasion prompted
division commanders of the "Blue"
army to hurry "conditioning" of al-
most 24,000 troops in preparation for
a defense of the Great Lakes area
from an attack of the allied "Red"
and "Brown" nations advancing from
the south and east.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 10.-(P)-The
Justice Department announced today

Tragic Figures Alone In War Torn Spain

Now that Germany has removed
certain restrictions from her export-
subsidary policy, the United States
Treasury Department has removed
the high duties that have been in ef-
feet recently anti German cameras
are again admitted at the old rate.
Lens Speed
A reader wishes to know the mean-
ing of the "" system of indicating
lens speed. You should remember
from your high school physics courses
that the strength of a light dimin-
ishes as you move away from it. Also
the more obvious fact that an open-
ing of twice the area will admit twice
as much light. A lens must be a
definite distance from the film to
form a sharp image, and the dis-
tance from the lens to the film when
focused on infinity is known as the
focal length.
It is quite obvious then, that if we
have two lenses, one with twice the
area, but both with the same focal

length, the larger one will let in
twice as much light and thus pro-
duce twice as much effect on the film
in the same period of time.
Also, if we have two lenses of the
same size but different focal lengths,
the lens that forms an image when
it is farther away from the film will
have the least effect on the film, so
the speed of a lens depends not on
the size or the focal length, but rath-
er on the ratio between the two, and
this ratio is expressed as a fraction
with the upper figure reduced to one.
Thus f. 4.5 really means 1/4.5 and
likewise f. 11 is 1/,11. This means
that in the case of'f,11 the lens di-
ameter is one eleventh of the focal
To compare various "f" ratings the
numbers are squared and the result-
ing figures are inversely proportional.
In most cases this is unnecessary as
the scale on the camera is written in
values that bear a direct relation to
each other.

To Disregard
Of L. Threat

WASHINGTON, Aug. 10.-(P)
-John L. Lewis' committee for
industrial organization decided
tonight to disregard the Ameri-
can Federation of Labor execu-
tive council's suspension threat.
The committee made its deci-
sion at an unheralded meeting
late tonight in the United Mine
Workers' headquarters.
In the course of the prolonged
struggle between the Federation's
Craft and Industrial Union fac-
tions, the executive council last
Wednesday directed that the 10
unions affiliated with the Lewis
committee be suspended Sept. 5
unless they withdraw from the,
committee beforehand.
Eleven Are Injured
In Auto-Fire Accident

Eleven person's were injured, five
of them possibly critically, when
two automobiles collided headon
late today in a smoke pall shroud-
ing the Bennett, Wis., forest fire
area 25 miles sooth of Superior.

mander of the U. S. Coast Guard
station at Duluth, was taken to
St. Francis Hospital. A driver's
license in the second automobile
bore the name of Chester Koback.
of Stevens Point, Wis.
The occupants of the second
car were believed critically in-
jured. The St. Francis Hospital
staff said it could not immediate-
ly identify any of them.
Others of the Le Claire family
injured were Mrs. Le Claire,
Reuben, Jr., 14; Ramona, 6; An-

Walkout Threatens
Toledo Gas Service
TOLEDO, Aug. 10.-()-Union
workers of the Ohio Fuel Gas Co., and
it affiliate, the Northwestern Ohio
Natural Gas Co., went on strike today
and left only skeleton crews to pre-
vent a shutdown of gas service to the
entire city.
Edmund Ruffin, secretary of the
Toledo Industrial Peace Board, met
with representatives of the company
and the Gas Workers Union in an at-
tempt to negotiate a settlement be-
fore the strike could cause a shut-
Ruffin said that Toledo's entire
population of about 300,000 persons
would be affected directly or indi-
rectly by an interruption of service.
He added that it was impossible to
predict whether a shutdown would
occur or when it might occur.
Robert Pierce, president of the
union, said that the union has a
membership of about 260 among the
300 employees of the *cwo companies
and that all union members left the
plants except men in key positions.
