Plane Crash Shows Need
of Air Lanes, Says Pilot

Type of Paris-Lcndon air liners which crashed in mid-air yesterday.
The Taris-Loudon airplane acci
dent emphasizes the need for well
defined air lanes, said Clarence
Lange, Omaha air mail pilot, yester
day. "Wc are going to take up the mat
ter soon in the Pilots' association, as
the same thing is apt to happen to
us," he said.
L'p to date there Is nothing but an
informal agreement between pilots
as to what route they will fly.
Lange cited an incident which hap
pened week before last.
"1 was flying east trom Cheyenne
in very bad flying weather. Knowing
Pilot H. G. Smith was starting west
from Omaha over the same route,
I landed at North Platte and phoned
him I was flying right along the
river, a little to the south, so he
would fly north of the river.
"Flying conditions were worse
north than they were south and this
arrangement sometimes may work a
hardship-on one of the fliers, but
something must be done to avoid ac
cidents." Lange. who made the Faris-Lon-
don trip himself a year ago last Feb
ruary, is at a loss to account for the
"I thought they had an agreement
to fly at different altitudes," he said.
"If the v were flvmir bv eomnass.
they probably didn't correct for shift
ing side winds. Any compass would
be 'off: four 'or .five, points, due to
the shifting and this 'must be-taken
into account by the- piloti.? .... ,
JLange made the trip as the guest
of the Farnam Freres, who' operate
one of three air lines much in use by
tourists. The ' Others are Instonc

Milton Darling, Omaha art dealer,
made the Handley-Page trip from
London to Paris on September 6,
last. He also started on an air trip
from Brussels to London.
"Both times were nearly fraught
with disaster for inc." he recounted
yesterday, "but I'd make the trip
again, any time.
I he first time he started from
Brussels one of - the motors went
dead just as they ' were about to
cross the channel. The pilot decid
ed not to risk it and flew back to the
"A terrible accident occurred at
the landing place 10 or 15 minutes
after I landed, on my London-to-Paris
trip," he said. "Four Amer
icans were killed. A plane, landing,
struck a tree. A bridal couple and a
young Harvard student, who had
forgotten his passport in Paris and
was flying, back to get it, were
among, tose killed."

Mr. and Mrs. Ware Hall made the
London-Paris trip while on their

DiiirrganJa HUtory of Ill-Fortune
Met With by Pre
dVcMsori on Their
H? IM AmmUImI frna.
rrii, April 8, President Milif
rand, undimcd by the frequent
mUhap to French presidents who
have made long trips during their in
cumbency, is taking a 5,000-mile, trip
into Africa, More than half of hi
journey will be traveled by automo
bile through the protectorate colonies
of Morocco, Algiers and Tunis.
President Millerand owes his elec
tion to the accident which befell for
mer President Deichanel when he
let! out of a train window.
Premier Poincare, when he was the
chief executive, met with no personal
misadventure, but Austria-Hungary
took advantage of his absence in Rus
sia to present the ultimatum to Serbia
which caused the war.
When former President Itihet lefi

Italy he embroiled France with the
Former President Carnot, on a
visit to Lyons, fell under the dagger
of an assassin. The other presidents,
with the exception of Fallieres and
MacMahon, did not travel much.

flooded regions of southern France
in 1875, offended the press and in
curred intense unpopularity, and the
elections of that year wen( heavily
against his party.
President Millerand. is disregard
ing all these precedents.
Monte Carlo Stock Drops.
Monte Carlo Casino stock is drop
ping on the stock exchange, and the
company is considering passing or re
ducing its dividends. It Is said the
croupiers have not raked in bank
notes at the roulette and baccarat
tables fast enough to meet the high
cost of fast living. The casino's per
centage of profit has remained un
changed, it is claimed, while every
thing else has gone tip. Its dividend,
if any is declared, will be only S per
cent of the book value of the stocks.
Monte Carlo is not the only resort
to be hard hit. This season also has
heen dull at other similar resort
along the Riviera.
Negro Track Sensation.
Winfield, a Kentucky negro, has
been the sensation of the French
flat racing season, winning nine
races with his 14 mounts for Leon
MantachefT, a Russian owner. Win
field was caught in Russia by the
bolshevist revolution and was res
cued through the efforts of the Swe
dish legation after a series of hard
ships. He has won nearly 100,000
francs since the season opened and
is Second only to Frank O'Neill, who
is leading with 14 victories. Ameri
can jockeys continue to hold the
dominant position on French race
tracks. ddie Haynes has made a
great hit ; and has been dubbed the
second Johnny Rciff, as he rides
perched high on his horse's neck, but
has shown weakness in some of the
home stretches. O'Neill beat him re
cently in two thrilling finishes.
Princess Mary Shops.
The 10-day incognito tisit here of
Princess Mary and Viscount Las
celles at the home of Lord and Lady
Granard, has been largely a shopping
trip. Being incognito, has not pre
vented Parisians from recognizing
the princess on entering or leaving
the shops of dressmakers where she
has been accompanied by her hus
band. Viscount Lascelles is known
to the Paris trade as being fond of
pretty gowns and a -keen judge of
what a woman ought to wear.
' Plan New Racing Motors.
Radically new designs for auto
mobile, motors are being developed
for the French grand prix race at
Strasbourg, July 15, undr the new
regulations limiting engines to a
cylinder capacity of two litres.
French automobile engineers are
conducting their experiments under
much the same secrecy as that which
surrounds the foreign office, but it
is known that several eight-cylinder
motors are being evolved to make
over 5,000 revolutions a minute
capable of developing close to 100
