Wireless telephone apparatus has
been installed as a part of the in

second Pan-American Aeronautic
Congress in session here and some
startling "stunts" were performed
with the devices that have been
placed at the end of the piers and

One of the features of the out

be an aerial "hop, skip and jump,"
to demonstrate how aerial life pre

passenger or pilot lose bis balance
in transferring from one plane to an
other in midair in ease of an emerg
ency change from a crippled ma
chine. Parachute experts who are
working on aerial regulations and
who will propose that every airship
shall carry a life preserver for every
passenger along the same lines as the
government regulations for water
craft, will judge the demonstration.

Secretary Rasmussen Gets
Reports Showing Fine
Prospects Now
Secretary of Agriculture Fred
Rasmussen reports that accord
ins to figures compiled by the
Bureau of Statistics, the condition
of wheat is estimated at 104 per
cent., compared with a normal or
full crop condition. This is three
per cent, better than one month ago
and indicates an approximate aver
age yield of 21.3 bushels per acre.
|On this basis, considering the large
acreage, the total production will
reach 33,404,000 bushels. The crop
will probably be above or below
these figures according as the change
in conditions from now until harvest
is above or below the usual or aver
age change in condition. The total
production last was estimated
at 26,024,000 bushels.
Like wheat, rye is in splendid con
dition and indicates 103 per cent, of
a normal crop. This is a gain of
three per cent, during the month of
April. According to present outlook
tho yield will bo 19.8 bushels per
acre and the total production 5,-
434,000 bushels. The production last
year was estimated at 4,676,500
The outlook for hay on May first
was 93 per cent, compared with a
normal. It is forecasted that the
yield will approximate 1.45 tons pet
acre. No figures available yet as to
the acreage that will be harvested.
The average yield last year was esti-1
mated at 1.35 tons per acre.
The Bureau of Statistics reports I
that the prospect for a full crop of I
fruit in Pennsylvania is as follows: i
Apples, 81 per cent.; pears, 66 perl
cent.: peaches, 60 per cent.; plums, I
65 per cent., and cherries, 62 peri
cent. As this information was gat.li- |
! crcd on or about May first, only aj
few days after tho freeze of April j
24-26, the next report may show
condition and outlook much above
or below these figures.
Broadway Limited

New Train Service First Vital
Step in Recon
Paris, May 21.—What is char
acterized as one of tho most vital
steps towards the speedy recon
struction of war-torn Europe is
being taken this week in the inaug
uration of tho through, transconti
nental train service between Paris,
Belgrade and Bucharest via Pon
tarlier, Milan, Triest, Agram and
Vinlcovce. This line would under
ordinary circumstances be a great
boon to the traveler and to the bus
iness man, but now, on the eve of
the signing of peace, it assumes an
incalculable importance to the wel
fare of many countries.
The Allied capitals will now he
linked up once more by a rapid
service which will permit of easy
communications. The slow sea
route can be abandoned for the
numerous governmental missions
which will play a great part in tho
reconstruction. In numerous other
ways the new line will facilitate the
process of rebuilding the fortunes
of the Allies.
Germany Avoided
That this railway avoids Germany
and undoubtedly will take away
much of the trade of the German
railways, finds no adverse criticism
in Paris. The French are quite con
tent to see the railways of their late
enemies lio dormant for a time.
Whether the new Allied line will
ultimately become the great trade
artery for the continent, replacing
the German lines between the North
Sea ports and the East, is a matter
of much discussion. There are ar
guments on both sides of the ques
tion. Certainly its immediate effect
is expected to he to lessen tho Ger
man prospects. Whether there is
any sentiment in trade, which will
influence future developments, re
mains to be seen.
The new service will provide
through trains de luxe between
Paris and Belgrade three times eaels
week, according to present plans.
One train a week will go through to
Bucharest. Thus with a good train
service between Paris and the Eng
lish Channel ports, England will
again be hrnugnt into close touch
with her Eastern Allies.
On to Athens Soon
As soon as possible the line will
be extended to Constantinople and
to Athens, but the running of trains
to these places now is impossible
owing to the destruction of railways
during the war. It will take several
months to repair the damage. In
addition, rolling stock is very scarce.
Even now it is necessary to make
a wide detour to get to Bucharest}
from Belgrade.
While the transcontiental train
service will be important for relief
work and for traders who wish to
visit the East to re-etsablish com
mercial relations, it is believed that
the steamship traffic will not be ma
terially affected by the innovation,
i Goods will still continue to pass
through the Mediterranean as of
