Seaplane Crew Rescued After Being
Afloat Nine Days.
Commander John ‘Rodgers and his
intrepid crew of four of the lost trans-
Pacific airplane PN-9 No. 1 are alive
and well.
The crippled eagle with its precious
burden of trial-blazing adventurers
was found late last Thursday riding
swan-like atop choppy seas by a mon-
ster of the deep, the United States
submarine R-4.
Lost 218% hours in a plunge from
the air after twenty-five hours hurt-
ling from San Francisco towards Hon-
olulu in the first su-h flight ever at-
tempted, the brave little force in every
sense except officially had been given
up as lost martyrs to man’s efforts to
overcome the elements.
The PN-9 No. 1 was found fifteen
miles off the island of Kauai, sixty-
four miles northwest of Oahu, upon
which is Honolulu and toward which
the aircraft was headed. :
After her wings were clipped by the
exhaustion of her gasoline supply the
plane, wind driven on the face of the
water, made progress slower than cal-
culations of the searching Navy forces
had indicated. =
It was sighted at a position over
which the flotilla of naval craft had
cruised almost a week previous, near
that in which the mine sweeper Whip-
poorwill reported two days after the
search it had seen a white flare and
two red rockets.
The five men came through their
ordeal in remarkably good shape.
Some traces of the tension under
which they had lived for ten days
were apparent, but physicians who ex-
amined them were confident that rest
and quiet would bring complete recov-
ery. For that reason the aviators
were directed to go at once to the na-
vy hospital at Pearl Harbor. .
Under Commander Rodgers’ direc-
tion were: Lieutenant Byron J. Con-
nell, of Pittsburgh, assistant pilot;
Skiles N. Pope, of Jackson, Tenn., as
aviation pilot; William H. Bowlin, of
Richmond, Ind., aviation chief machin-
ist’s mate, and Otis G. Stanz, of Terre
Haute, Ind., chief radio man.
New Ideas in Mental Tests for Chil-
In some of the elementary English
schools, today, mental tests are made,
and gauged by the quickness shown In
folving certain problems presented pic-
torially. One test, known as the Por-
teus maze, measures temperament as
well as mind. Eleven mazes. graded
progressively in difficulty, are printed
on separate sheets, and the pupil is
told that they show the paths in a
garden surrounded by walls. He must
find his way out by the quickest route.
The showing made depends on the
pupil's ability to work under pressure
and to withstand distraction by unes-
sentials in the material or by noises in
the room. A cube imitation test in-
volves the touching of four numbered
cubes in a certain sequence as indi-
cated by the teacher, the combinations
of numbers being mace more and more
difficult. Fach test gives a certain
scofe, and by combining the scores the
mental age of the pupil is arrived at.
Single tests are of no value. The tests
of London boys und girls between the
ages of eight and thirteen showed some
Interesting sex differences. The girls
excelled in memory tests and the boys
in reasoning.

Old Age Reverenced
Among Eskimo Tribes
Old people are held in great respect
among the Eskimos, and their counsel
is always considered. They help as
far as they are able in the household
work, the old men repairing weapons,
harness, etc, and the old women in
sewing and tending the lamps.
In times of scarcity, as in winter,
meat and ofl are always shared
around. Directly a seal or deer is
brought in it is cut up and sent to
each needy family. In times of plen-
ty each family is supposed to provide
for itself, but old people, widows and
orphans have always the first claim
upon those who have the means. J
Among these people mutual kind-
ness is a general obligation. A wid-
Ow or orphan child is never left
alone, but taken into the house and
family circle of the nearest relative.
The widow gives her services in re-
turn for food and lodging and cloth-
ing, and the child is cared for exactly
as the man’s own offspring.
Costly Cherries
“Yesterday,” says a staff writer in
the London Daily News, “I heard a
true story concerning an American
girl whose father left her at a well-
known London hotel while he made
a round of business calls on the Con-
“Papa, on his return, had a rude
shock. The first item on the bill was
for 178 cocktails. ‘But my daughter
never touches alcohol,’ he expostulated
with the manager. Then the girl her
self was called in. With a shy glance,
first at the manager and then at her
father, she remarked, ‘I ordered them
Just to eat the cherries, father.’
“And each of those 274 cherry-bear
ing cocktails cost 18 pence (38 cents) .”
Fruit Salad for Dogs
That Investigating food specialist
and lover of animals, Andrew Ken-
nard of Boston, reports he has raised
a litter of imported puppies on a diet
of frult, the puppies m a record-
breaking growth as they were fed
dally their portions of fruit salad, an
appealing combination of oranges,
fPples and bananas. The fruits werg
half their daily rations, the other half
being approved dog foods,
