F. Butter of the German American A.C. is the winner, making the route in 1 hour, 34 minutes and 46¾ seconds, with the aid of a 24-minute handicap against such famous hip=swings as John Knackstedt, his team-mate, and William Carlson of the N.Y.A.C. both scratch-men.

Raymond Robins, outstanding prohibitionist and close friend of President Hoover, is solved by Carl Fisher, 12 year old school-boy, who “spots” a visiting “mining engineer” as the long-sought anti-liquor crusader.

Trial runs prove that brew masters have not lost their knack. City authorities everywhere are swamped by requests for selling permits and State bureaus are flooded with applications for exclusive names for new wines and malt drinks. Even the sturdy truck horses are beginning to feel their oats, or maybe it’s their barley and hops. Well, here’s how – soon?

VIENNA, AUSTRIA – 100,000 members of the Social Democratic Party, most of them workmen representing various trade groups, commemorate the passing of the Hapsburg regime by a mighty demonstration, in which they call for pure Socialism in government.

TEST OF FLOOD GATES
GATUN, PANAMA – Its retaining walls re-enforced by concrete bastions, the hydro-electric station on the Chagres River sturdily resists the force of tumbling water from the great mid-isthmian lake, as 9 spillways are opened simultaneously, relieving the rapidly mounting pressure on the main barrage of the inter-oceanic waterway.

An aerial, from Koken to Melinkovich, late in the first half, brings about the first score for the green-jersied boys. Another, 45 yards through the air, from Banas to DeVore, runs up another tally, early in the third quarter. A third results from a Cadet fumble behind the goal line a few minutes later. Only lots of luck and desperate playing by the harassed Warriors prevents several more touchdowns by the South Bend juggernaut. Score 21-0, and what a game!

TYPHOON AND FLAME SWEEP NIPPON CITIES; 300 REPORTED DEAD
HARA, JAPAN – An oriental hurricane, howling across the Kwanto district at 78 miles an hour, followed by fires in the twisted wreckage of houses and barns in the path of the all-night windstorm, turns the rich farm village section, along the Tokaido Highway into a land of desolation. Food and medical aid are rushed to the bewildered survivors found picking around in the ashes of their homes, and the work of reconstruction begins while the ruins are still smouldering.

SENATE G.O.P. HEADS CONFER ON PROGRAM OF LAME DUCK MEET
WASHINGTON. D.C. – “To beer, or not to beer” is the hectic question as Senators and Representatives assemble for the December session of Congress. There is a strange feeling in the air, not present in more than a decade, because of the great number of old-timers and outstanding Republican figures doomed to private life by the recent election. The losers, here for their final law-making, take it on the chin standing up, however, and say with a wink, “Wait until 1936”.

VILLAGE BLACKSMITH MOUNTS SHOP IN AUTO TO GO HORSE-SHOEING
ALLIANCE, OH – The smith, a mighty progressive man is he, packing his forge and other tools into a 5-ton truck, forsaking his spreading chestnut tree and chugging right up to the farmer’s back gate with a portable repair unit, after finding that business did not make a beaten path to his door. J. E. Rennard doesn’t believe that old rat-trap story, anyway. His motto, and it’s bringing him success, is “a rolling anvil gathers no cobwebs”.

EXILE TROTZKY SEES EUROPE AS PAROLED HOSTAGE OF SOVIET
NAPLES, ITALY – For the first time since his enforced domicile outside of Russia, the noted revolutionary leaves the Turkish Isle of Prinkipo.

ANIMAL FOES CAGED TOGETHER FOR FEUD TEST BY SCIENTISTS
MILWAUKEE, WI – Amazing experiments being made in the Municipal Zoo, prove that wild creatures of mixed species that are natural enemies, can be kept together in captivity without harm.

PHILADELPHIA, PA – Football’s supreme and most glittering pageant, the West Point-Annapolis game, provides alternate thrills and color for frenzied spectators at Franklin Field as the Cadets bombard the Middies by land and by air and roll up a one=sided score. Superb team-work, tight playing and a relentless policy of attack by the Generals smothers the admirals after one fleeting moment of brilliance by the ocean-going eleven in the first quarter. A desperate and sturdy defense by the sea fighters keeps the heavy tanks from the U.S.M.A. from running wild, however, and leaves the “Service afloat” the satisfaction of and “honorable defeat”.

RIGID POLICE ESCORT FOILS RED PLANS FOR CONGRESS OUTBREAK
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Down stately Pennsylvania Avenue, long accustomed to the pomp and pageantry of military parades, 2500 members of the “hunger army” are allowed to march with their shouts, their banners and their band in Russian uniforms. Eight straggling blocks of Communist leaders and their followers, singing the battle song of Bolshevism and yelling demands for governmental largess, while in front, along each side of the column and bringing up the rear, bue-coats by the hundreds hem the demonstrators and prevent threatened rioting. A pip-squeak finale to the long-heralded “December drive” on the Capitol by Soviet sympathizers.

UNITE AUTO-AIRCRAFT IN BULLET-SHAPE CAR TO RIVAL RAILROADS

WHISKEY PLANTS RUSH PRODUCTION PENDING PROHIBITION REPEAL
LOUISVILLE, KY – With only two weeks’ supply of whiskey in the United States, should the 19th Amendment be repealed, distillers, under government supervision, lose no time in grinding grain and preparing mash for fermentation so as to be ready to meet the challenge of British, Canadian and Continental strong drink manufacturers. Particular pains are being taken to get the finest water possible, as, strangely enough, the quality of bourbon and other brands depends to an unusual extent upon the water used in the initial stages of distillation.

NEWEST OCEAN GIANT SAFE IN PORT AFTER PERILOUS FIRST TRIP
NEW YORK, N.Y. – The Conte Di Savoia, second Italian super-liner to be launched this year, arrives here on her maiden voyage after a serious mishap which might have become another great marine disaster but for quick action by the engineering crew and the dangerous descent by rope 70 feet down the ship’s side in a heavy sea by Gennaro Amatrudo, a sailor, to plug a broken valve-port in the vessel’s “skin”. With her dynamo compartment flooded, the steamer lost nine hours, but her delayed welcome as she noses up the North River saw a record for noise and tooting by harbor-craft.

COLD CARGOS ARRIVE AMID WRANGLE OVER EUROPE’S WAR DEBT

Millions in the yellow metal are put ashore in wooden crates and rushed by armored cars from the steamship piers to government and Wall Street vaults.

S. from foreign countries.

JUVENILE SPEEDERS COMPETE IN ANNUAL SCOOTER STAKE RACE
PARIS, FRANCE – The development of a new winter sport for youngsters of the boulevards, races with mechanical coasters, pumped by hand, affords great amusement to strollers on the avenues of the national capital.

By means of a special noose at the end of an iron pipe, he snares them alive. A demonstration of his dangerous work of bringing them back kicking, biting and scratching is as thrilling as any jungle picture. Also, he goes right in the cage with a dozen of the snarling, ferocious beasts and at feeding time.

RUSSIA CELEBRATES OPENING OF WORLD’S LARGEST POWER DAM
DNIEPROSTROY, U.S.S.R. – The greatest hydro-electric plant on earth – the pinnacle of the Soviet Five-Year-Plan – is set in motion with epic ceremonies as the impounded waters of the Dnieper River are turned through turbine flumes and spillways at the mammoth barrage just completed near Hichkas, developing 810,000 horse-power.
