It will be the Graf's fifth crossing of the Atlantic and for the first time nu a major flight she will not be under the control of hSr veteran comman- der, Dr. Hugo Eckener. On completion of the first air ship girdling of the globe and the fastest circumnavigation by any means of transportation, Dr. Eckener announced that he would start in about twelve d~ya and would follow 'his dirigible home to Friedrichhafen by steamer and train. Twenty-one days ago the Graf Zep- pelin left Lakehurst for its homeport in-Germany, imemdiate~y thereafte~ making a tress-European and Asiatic trip by way of European Russia and Siberia to Japan. The Graf piloted by Dr. tinge Eck- ener completed its third leg of the first round the world flight of a lighter than air ship. The veteran skipper brought the huge air-liner safely from Tokio over the broad expanse of the Pacific to Los Angeles in a three and one-quarter day non-stop flight from Japan to the Los Angeles airport This is the greatest achievement of man, in long distance flying, and tn the speed with which Dr. Hugo Eck- ener accomplished it in one-third time of Pacific Ocean steamers, after bat- tling terrific storms and dense fogs. Less than 18 hours in Los Angeles were provided by the emergency schedule set by the veteran skipper ef the air after the record shattering three and a quarter day non-stop tran- sit of the Pacific ocean from Japan to :Los Angeles Seven members of the crew which came 16.880 miles witb the history making voyage were de- tached and ordered to prnceed to ~akehurst by airplane tn order to lighten the load where they rejoined the giant craft for its hop to Eu- ~pe. The passengers showed consider- ably the strain of the long flight which began here August 8. The greatest danger was on taking off from Mines field at Los Angeles, when air condi- tions almost kept the giant ship from lifting over high tension electric wires around the field. By the supreme ef- fort of Dr. Eckener. the craft was lifted over with less than ten feet to spare. " " The states of Texas. Arizona and N Mexico gave the Graf Zeppelin the rockiest time it has had on the entire lorld flight. From the time the ship was near the California, Arizona, New Mexico corner until it arrived near E1 Paso, tbe Graf tumbled, plunged, tossed, and rose and fell like a ship in a heavy sea. Fierce gusts shrieked and clawed at the noble craft as it bucked strong bead winds and tur- bulent swirls for which this region Is known The trip over the great south- west has been the roughest of the whole world cruise. 'i'he Graf made a hasty uneventful trip over Chicago and the middle west in record time, all the cities, particu- larly Chicago and New York golng wild as the giant air ship circled each city, before mooring at the mast here after its final hop. The Graf Zeppelin completed its 20,000 mile flight around the world in 21 ~aYs, seven hours and 34 min- utes elapsed time, beating the record of John Henry Mears and C. B. D. CollyeF who went around the world last year in 23 days, 15 hours and 21 minutes using planes over land and ships across the Atlantic and Pacific. Actual flying time of the Graf was 11 days, 23 hours and 14 minutes beating the time of 15 days and six hours made by the U. S. army fliers in 1924. The only other flight ever made around the world by any sort of air craft. The elapsed time of the army fliers was 175 days. Dr. Eckener remains in the U. S. to visit and rest, During this period he plans to visit Washington, New York and Akron, Ohio; his first call was on President Hoover at Washington where he flew in an airplane. He ac- cepted an Invitation to be formally welcomed by the city of New York. Livestock May Be Overdone Records kept on 124 typical dairy ,farms in southeastern Minnesota dur. Ing 1928 in cooperation with the divi. sion of farm management and agri- cultural economics at University Farm, St. Paul, show that increasing the amount of livestock per 100 acres tends to enhance farm earnings up to a certain point, after which more live. stock serves to unbalance the busi- ness. On 20 farms having an average of 24.3 livestock units per hundred seres of land, earnings averaged $1,608. while another group of farms with 32.4 units per hundred acres. averaged ouiy $1593. indicating per haps that the point of diminishing re. turns In livestock concentration had been reached. Gr~ease spots may be removed frmr. well'paper by the use of blotting pa- per and a hot iron. Farmers who will be short of feed th/s winter should cull their herds and flocks very closely, selling such ant. reals as have to be sold at nnce, as prices are more~ favorable now than : ~heY w~l be later. (~hL W N u.) Ditch Bond Payment Nearly Third-Million Ditch bonds which the state of Min- nesota will be called upon to pay Sept. 1, total more than $300,000, according to a sm'vey made by the state auditor, in three northern counties, parts of which will become the Red Lake game refuge. Bonds due in Koochiching county to- tal $109,254.50; in Lake of the Woods county, $109,096.88; and in Beltrami county $104,659.80. Total bond obliK- ations in the t]~ree counncs, amount to more than $4,000,000. The bond oblig- ations in Bel[raml total $1,021,060; Lake of the Woods $1,372,378; Kooch- iching $1,008,665. These bonds will fall due from time to time up to 1942, when all of them will be taken up. The legislature authorized issuance of $2,500,000 in certificates of indebt- edness for payment of these bomls. Several former land holders are re- turning to their farmers since rche state has passed the law for the es- tablishment of a refuge and payment of the taxes 'U' Farm Offers Poultry Course, Conierence Called Poultrymen who are intent upon getting as large returns as possible from their flocks during the coming winter might well include in their plans a trip to the Poultry Course and Conference which is to be staged by the ponltry division at University Farm, St. Paul, September 17, 18, 19 and 20. The school is open to anyone interests{! and a ~egl~tratiou fee ol. one dollar will be the only charge for instruction, says Prof. A. C. Smith. chief of the poultry division. One of the strictly up-to-date fea- tures of the course will be the explana- tions ef the changes in breed require- ments that are contained in a new standard which is soon to be issued by the American Poultry association. This subject will be of special inter- est and value to all poultrymen en- gaged in the production of pm'ebred stock. Other topics listed for aH2ntion in- elude culling out of the unprofitable chicks, culling OUt the unprofitable hens. selection of breeding stock. Judging for exhibition quality, breed- ing and mating to produce standard quality flocks, poultry health and sani- tation, and feeding chicks for best re- sults. Additional discussions will be included at the request of those at- tending the course Instruction will be given In lectures, demonstrations and laboratory work Students of the course will have op- portunity to practice Judging, culling and ether operations, using the flocks of the experiment station Specimens of many kinds will likewise be avail- able for the study of diseases, while many types of poultry house~ and equipment may be seen In use and their advantages studied.

This will l~e the second anmml poul- try short course to be presented by the university poultry division, the first one. given last year, attracting a large attendance and meeting with enthusiastic favor.

The line of entertainment this year was of a very high class, and, we be- iieve, it will be the aim of the Fair Board to try to maintain such attrac- tisns and entertainment at all future fglrs.
