Holdrege, Neb., July 29.--One of the mos~ dramatic flights into the unknown regions of the upper air came to a dramatic end Saturday at 5 p. m., 12 miles from here when the Army-~eographic Society strat- osphere balloon and gondola drop- ped to earth a total wreck, but, for- tunately, without the loss of life that might have been expected in a fall from ~0,000 feet. When the balloon, the largest ever made for such a flight, reached its highest point the three men in the gondola, through a window in its top, noted an Immense rip in the silk fabric of. the balloon and at once radioed their difficulty to ground stations, as the structure began a descent at the rate of 500 feet a minute. On account of the ratified air in those high regions it was impos- sible for the men to open the great bali, known as the gondola, until the falling monarch had descended to an altitude of about 29,000 feet. when they crawled out of the top of the globe with their parachutes, by which time more of the balloon fabric had blown away, When down to about 5,000 feet one after another the men bailed out, all landing safe- ly about a mile from where the gondola had crushed into the earth like an egg shell. Practically all the instruments carried aloft, including the photographs and records, were ruined, but the barograph telling the height reached was saved by turning it loose with its own para- chute from above.

Oison, last Thursday proclaim- ed a moratorium on every form of debt where the debtor shows In- ability to pay. Broader in scope than any mora- torium issued by his predecessor, Governor William Langer, Olson's )reclamation is designed~ to protect the farmer against foreclosure, the small businessman, home owners, and extends even to a suspension of payrnent on conditional sales con- tracts. Provision is made for application to the courts by any creditor "who feels himself injured." The proclamation, Olson explain- ed, does not bar the collection of ordinary debts, but where a debtor is in financial distress the mora- torium is expected, to afford relief. Creditors who feel injured by the operation of the moratorium and on hear~g and subsequena review by the governor have provisions of the moratorium lifted if they do the creditor an injustice. Lsmger's several moratoriums had been attacked on the political stump as "illegal," and promises were made by the Oison f~tction that a "legal (Continued to page five) TWO CCC CAMPS W I L L DEVELOP EVACUATION OF DROUTH ARE URGED BY MEAD Reclamation Leader S a ys Such Action Must Be Tak- en; Would Affect Ma~y Farmers In This County How many of our farmers on the less fertile land of the county are prepared to be moved off to some other farm by the government be- cause their land is not suitable for the best kind of farming?

It is understood that each of these camps will have 210 men and offic- ers and that they will operate in the bad lands section during the winter, that one camp will be lo- cated in the northern part of the area and the other in the southern part, Buildings for housing the men are expected to be constructed and pos- sibly such other structures as re- creation centers, and it is under- stood that such buildings will be al- lowed to remain for the convenience of teurists who are expected to vis- it this regio~ in large numbers af- ter bridges have been built and roads and trails constructed through tht~~ scenic region.

The wheat so far marketed is running 59 to 60 pounds per bushel and is all No. I grain, which is re- markable, considering the Shortage of ram. Oats and barley are a poor crop, and hay is at a premium. Most of the corn fields have survived the earlY July frost and will make a forage crop, some of it producing grain, but is a disappointment in this period of short forage, To some extent the loss of crop has been offset by the allotment payments, so conditions are not so bad as they might have been. 1926 for instance, when no crop what- ever was harvested, and there wer~ no governmental aids to lessen the burden. It is reported that a camp of the C~C will be established close to Me- dora for work in the proposed Roosevelt Park.
