Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - September 19, 1929, Mason City, Iowa SEPTEMBER 19 GERMANS TEST HEAVY PLANES Try New Types of Oil in Flights With Junker Planes DESSAU Germany oil may be destined to revolutionize the aircraft industry if the experi msnta conducted by the Junkers works continue to yield as satisfac tory results as are beingachieved in the initial stages A Prof Hugo Junkers has devised a Diesel airplane motor which uses heavy oil instead of benzine This juice la much cheaper than ben zine and more economical and has the further advantage of not being highly Inflammable Explosions Impossible Explosions such as so frequently occur when a gasolinedriven plane makes an unfortunate forced land ingarme believed to be impossible in the case of Diesel motors The Junkers Diesef motor already is so far perfected that duration flights have been undertaken with a large monoplane Eir hours con LQBEUAZETTiJi ON TRACK Carload of Glendora 6x3 EggCoal and a car of Franklin County Nut coal SPECIAL PRICES IP TAKEN FROM THE CAR Cerro Gordo Farmers Co Phone 270271 500 3rd St N E ttnuous flying is the record thus fa achieved How economical the use of heavy oil is may be Judgedby the fac that the Diesel motor consumed 181 grammes of heavy oil per horse power per hour as compared with 230 grammes for the benzine o benzol driven motors Greater Radius In other words Prof Junkers be lleves he has demonstrated that a plane equipped with a Diesel moto has a radius of action 25 per cen greater than that of a benzine driven motor of equal strength The problem of carrying enough fuel has always been the chief diffi culty in planning long flights Hence aviation engineers have evincec great interest in the Diesel motor experiments Employed Boys Meeting Will Be Held Oct 5

in Middle West SIOUX CITY Sept Ar thur J Weaver of Nebraska in speaking before the Traffic club at Sioux City Wednesday night cm phasized the utilization of water re sources of the great middle west as not only a regional need but one of national scope He congratulated Sioux City as well as all Missouri valley states on the part they have played in pro curing recognition of the upper Mis sissippi river as a navigation pro ject The fight has been won Governor Weaver declared thru the just de mands of this great section of the nation for the equalization of trans portation conditions with other sec tions He said that the government had built every great halbor in the nation had Improved eastern and southern rivers had made possible the development of the Great Lakes system as the most economical unit of transportation in the world It is no more than fair he con tinued that western rivers should be speedily improved as a part of the great Mississippi valley system of waterways now nearing comple tion When the sound policy of the gov rnment in expending a year in the Mississippi valley Is in oree there is no reason why the Missouri river should not be com pleted as a navigable channel with in tHe next five years extending to Sioux City and Yankton S Dak That this will be done by the pres ent administration practically is as sured the Nebraska executive said The people should know he continued that the improvement of the Missouri river long looked upon as an outlaw is not an impossible or a huge task The army engineers are unanimous as to feasibility and congress has made the upper Mis sissippi a project Three years ago the government was expending more than a million dollars on the Mls year ft is 000000 Today it Is the major pro ject and with recent allotments to the upper Missouri river we can now look forward with assurance to the early completion of a meritorious project too long delayed Too Busy Prosecuting to Attend Own Trial Plain
