Chicago, Sept. 23. Despite the
passage of numerous ordinances and
the adoption of traffic regulations in

the larger cities of the country in an
effort to curb accidents from motor
cars, reports from more than a dozen

of the metropolitan cities of the mid middle
dle middle west show an increase in the
number of accidents for the first six
months of 1922, compared with the
same period of 1921.
This increase has caused city offi officials

governing motor traffic in an endeavor
to lessen danger in modern traveling.
Several of the cities are shown to be
waging war on the speeder, in many
cases imprisonment being added to
fines municipal judges. Adoption of
rules in turning at street intersec intersections,

other methods used in many cities in
the campaign against accidents.
In Chicago in 1921, deaths attribut attributed

compared with 475 in 1920. Non-fatal
accidents totaled 8657 in 1921 and
7085 in 1920. During the first four
months of 1922, non-fatal accidents
totaled 2533.
Forty-three persons were killed and

Pilgrims Knew the Bible
Three hundred years ago a little band of men and women lived
on faith and hard work in the forests of Massachusetts. They
are known now as Pilgrims because they sailed from England
to find a place to worship God without restraint. They brought
their pastor with them few modern immigrants do.
Bible Develops Character
The Pilgrims were poor and unlearned, but they knew the
Bible. That knowledge developed a type of character we all
admire! These first settlers would not be known to posterity
had they not been so well acquainted with their Bible. Is jtur
Bible a parlor ornament, or a study book? Read it today around

Cleveland, Sept. 22. A motorics v
airplane, capable of climbing to an
altitude of 20,000 feet, is forecast by
Dr. George H. Madelung, designer of
the successful Hanover glider, which,
in a recent glider competition in the
Rhone valley, broke all records by
staying in the air for more than
three hours.
Dr. Madelung now is a member of
the designing staff "of a local air airplane

tion. operation. The machine has a gliding angle of
sixteen to one, that is, in still air it

glides sixteen feet to every foot it
descends. It has a still air speed of

twenty miles an hour. If the wind is

twenty miles an hour, the glider re

mains stationary, and if more than

that, it goes backwards, but if the

air current is upward, the glider as

cends. It is upon upward currents of

air that the glider places main de

pendence for keeping aloft for more

than brief periods.

In sailing for a considerable dis

tance the glider pOot must know ap

proximately where he will encounter

upward currents. Plowed fields and

other open spaces where the heat of
the sun creates a considerable tip
current, are favorable places. It is

for this reason that the charting of

the air currents has become necessary

for the commercial development of
the glider.

When the places along a certain

route where air currents may be en encountered
countered encountered become known, flights of

hundreds of miles and ascents of more
than four miles may be accomplished,
Dr. Madelung said.

He pointed to the hawk and other

soaring birds as an illustration. The

hawk will sail down to a field, whence

it will cycle in ascent, forced upward
by the risin gair caused by the re reflected
flected reflected heat of the field. When it has

reached a sufficient altitude it soars
away, to repeat the process miles

In this connection, Dr. Madelung

commented, that the hawks and other

soaring birds do not fly at night,
stating that the reason is because all
air currents are downward at night.

Night flying is impossible with glid gliders
ers gliders for the same reason, Dr. Dadelung
said. '?'
With the application of the prin principles
ciples principles discovered in gliding a new
type of airplane, far more efficient
and safe than the present types, will
result, Dr. Madelung believes. Dr.
Madelung's designs are being used
extensively in the construction here
of a new type of seaplane. It will
have' a wing design 'similar to that of
the Hanover glider to be used by the

United states navy.
Dr. Madelung was assistant engi engineer;

Institute of Aeronautical Research at

Americans lay a little too much
stress on Mohammedan when they
speak of Mohammedan India. Only
about 24 per cent of the population of
India is Mohammedan. The religion
of the vast majority of the people of
that country is Brahmanism. Among
the peoples of India, the Sikhs are the
most devoted to the British and make
the best soldiers. They have a highly
ethical religion of their own, worship worshiping

Nothing so likely to cause a fight as

It is strange that Americans, or for
that any educated people, accuse the
British of selfishness in trying to keep
the Dardanelles and Bosporous open.
Before the great war the Turks had
them closed against the world that
is they allowed the ships of other na nations
tions nations to pass thru only on sufferance.
The Turks went into the war as allies
of the Germans, and were the cause of

great trouble and loss to America,
altho there was never any formal
declaration of war between the two
countries. The defeat of Turkey was
principally the work of the British.
They lost more men and spent more
money at the Dardanelles, several
times over, than all the other Allies
put together. They conquered Meso Mesopotamia
potamia Mesopotamia and Palestine and set the

Arabs against the lurks, thereby
breaking up the Turkish empire. Now,
thfv havp not claimed the Dardanelles

for their own. They are simply try try-'

America included. If they have more

I troops in that vicinity than any other
power, it is because the other powers

have gone off and left Britain with
the bag to hold. There yet remains
in America considerable prejudice
against Great Britain because of
what happened over a hundred years

ago, and in addition to the prejudice
a much greater amount of ignorance
about what is happening today.

Trade entering into a contract with

the band should have fulfilled the

same, or at least pay the band what
is due it? Band.

We don't know what the board of

trade i. e., the Chamber of Com

itself. Whenever the secretary, by
hard work, coaxes it into having a

Surely this could not be a reporter's

(Wre tried to explain to you in a
fcrmer discussion that the money you
received was in the budget of the for former

need for a part or all of it for some
other purpose, it had a perfect right
to use it for that purpose. The band
has had no contract with the city, and
unless there is a contract the mem members

7. Does the recent six hundred

dollar appropriation for civic center,
which we consider highly laudable,

meet with the approbation of your
avowed principles of bedrock city

economy : oana.

(There is no similarity in the two

cases, ine civic center is an up to

this time useless piece of property,
unloaded on the city several years

ago, against the wishes of the people,

by a mayor and council which the
people put out of office and have kept
out of office. Some of the succeeding
councils would have sold it if any anybody
body anybody would have bought it. The Ro Rotary
tary Rotary Club, with great public spirit,
proposed to raise half the money to
mike it useful for something, provid provided
ed provided the city would raise the other half.
This proposition was accepted by the
last council., endorsed by this. Since
the city owns the lot. it would be
pieayunish to refuse to give such a
small sum to help put it to some use.
It is legitimate for a city government
to buy needed property and improve
it, and while the Star opposed buying
the civic center, it thinks the city
should put the same to better use than
raising sandspurs. Editor).
7. Don't you believe that bricks

(Never heard of such a brick. Don't
believe there is any such animal. But
what you don't seem to know about
bricks is that two thousand dollars
will buy enough of the hardened ob oblongs
longs oblongs to pave several blocks and we will
si bmit it to our readers if that won't
be worth more to the city than the
music of a band for probably two

dozen nights in the year. Editor).

8. Do you know that the band does
not know or care whether the city
manager has a six hundred or six
thousand dollar office and has never
intimated anything to the con contrary?
trary? contrary? Band.
(Beg pardon in your scintillating
little program printed in the Star of
the 15th you said:
"Overture, 'Our City Manager.' This

sentiment of all members of the band
who expect a square deal, and believe
this is or should be unanimous. If,
however, we have members who do
not, so mote it be. Band.
(You are a very fine little band, and

the Star has tried to be your friend.
Perhaps you have been deceived and
perhaps you have taken too much for
granted. But the present city council
hasn't promised anybody that it would
pay you any money, and the Star

supports it in its resolution to spend
the city's money only for what the

city has to have. If we can build a
bigger, finer city, we will have more
people and more business, and the
band will have more patronage. And
that will be worth more than a hand hand-cut
cut hand-cut even. year, which sooner or later

will become a political issue. Editor).

Riding over Sumter county's fine

relative resources of the two coun counties,

ulation. population. Yet we have only one small

bond issue $560,000. Over this we
have had no end of trouble and delay,
and last spring a considerable propor

tion of our voters showed a disposi

tion to throw down the whole thing, if

they could only call in the bonds and

have that part of the money unspent
returned. This would have left all the
work done up to date in such a condi condition
tion condition it would have been of no use, and

soon worse than no use, and the county

over a hundred thousand dollars in

debt for nothing in return. This could
not have been done, and a majority

of the voters would not have let it be

done, but it was discouraging to see

that even a minority was in favor of it

Our people should have more faith
in themselves and in the resources
of their great county. They should
bank on the latter and get more good

out of them, not in the future, but

right away.
Our county is in chaos each com

munity almost shut off from the others

by bad roads; our people finding it
difficult and sometimes dangerous to

travel and having to pay a great toll

in transportation on their produce.

Our bad roads not only make travel
miserable but thev cut off business.

People who would come to Ocala to

trade go to other towns. Our own

people go outside their county to buy

and sell. Marion county dollars go

across Leesburg and Gainesville coun
ters and into Leesburg and Gaines

ville banks for the simple reason that

Marion county people can go to

Gainesville and Leesburg more easily

than to Ocala.

At present, it is difficult to get out

of or into Marion county and this

condition will grow worse instead of
better unless the proper measures are

taken for improvement.

The Dixie Highway .will be partly

finished in a fashion in a few months

more, and a passable road will be

made from Belleview to Dallas, but

that will be about all.

We need a bond issue that will finish

the Dixie Highway, that will build a

road from Citra into Ocala, another
road from Ocala to State Road No. 5

at Morriston, and make the road from

Belleview to Dallas as good as the

Sumter county highway.

This last named road, after passing
Belleview, is as important as the
Dixie Highway. It is the shortest
route to Tampa, Lakeland and all the
country below, and will bring thou thousands
sands thousands of people to Ocala who now
take other roads to other towns.
The country between here and Citra
comprises some of our finest farm
land, and is becoming more and more
thickly settled every day. At Citra,
it will attract a road from the north northeast,
east, northeast, from Jacksonville by one or the
other of three routes.
The road to Morriston if built will
serve not only the people from the
northwest of the county, but from
Dunnellon, who can use State Road
No. 5 to connect with it.
The people should get together and
decide to bond for a road system that
will put Marion in her proper place
among the counties of the state.

that dignitary from a sudden mission
