ALAMOSA BOY WINS IN STATE SPELLING Raphael Moses of Alamosa, was the successful contestant in the state spelling contest held in Den- ver last Week. He won the honor with a grade of 99, missing the word shellac. Miss Ruth Avery of Sargent, who represented Saguache county was sixth with a grade of 92, which was a good showing when it is consider- ed that there were over fifty con- testants from all parts of the state. The contest was held in the Broadway Junior high school in the capital city, with one pupil foam each county in the state competing. One hundred words were given the scholars, and Young Moses came through with all but one. The Ala- nmsa youngster won second place in last year's contest, A banquet was given the students competing at the Metropole hotel in the evening, at which time Colorado pins were giv- en to all, while the five highest were awarded prizes <)f $25, $20, $15, $10 and $5 by the school superin- tendents. AIRFORDS WILL SOON BE IN EVERY HOME Edsel B. Ford, with the active co- operation of his father, who builds an automobile about every eight minutes, has built an all-metal mon- oplane which has just made its ini- tlal, successful flght. These mach- ines have a wing spread of sixty feet, a fuselage of fvrty-eight feet, but their total weight is less than that of a sedan automobile. The ca- pacity, or as it is technically phras- ed, "useful load," is 2,000 pounds. There will be room in these planes f)r eight or ten passengers, in addi- tion to the seat reserved for the )ilot. It is the intention of the "flivver dug of the air" to ultimately pro- duce these machines at the low fig- ure made possible by "quantity" i production. The first two or three planes, being in the nature of exper- imental machines, were quite costly, as is the case in all initial produc- tion of any sort of machinery. The speed of these "Airfords" will be 100 miles an hour for pleasure cruising, and a capacity of 40 to 50 miles an hour in additi.on to that, for war use. It is Mr. Ford's intention ,that the first commercial lines of his ac- tivity will be. the transportation of letters, express and valuable freight. The dream of Darius Green and his flying machine fell far short of what the Fords expect to accomp- i lish. In addition these airplanes, t or rather "Airfords" the Fords are building an all-metal, lighter-than- air machine. The portion contain- ing the gas will be made of duralum- in, which is 90 per cent aluminum, 4 per cent copper, and a little co- balt. These gas containers will ac- tually weigh less than the silk bags with their interior "cells" now used in the every-day dirigible. The great advantage of this metal con- tainer is that it is non-combustible and practically safe against lightn- ing. The dirigible, which will carry only 100,000 cubic feet of ga as against the 2,000,000 in the Ls An- geles, and the 5,000,000 in the latest British dirigible, will have a speed of about 70 miles an hour. It may not be many years before every well.equipped househ.old will bare its "Airford" to be used for going in a straight line instead of using Henry's car over curving roads. A plan is being promoted by the Extension Service for a tri-county agent for Alamosa, Saguache and Rio Grands counties. Ths would divide the expense among the three counties and allow the boys and girls club work to continue in the valley. The Saguache county cam- missioners agreed to the proposition but it was turned down by the Rio Grands county cammissioners. Representative Nelson Truitt was over from Westcliffe this week looldng after business matters and visiting his parents. The Elks Dance last Saturday night x.;as welt attended and the music by Hawe's Orchestra was fine. The county commissioners were in seslon on Monday of this week.
