ARMY AIR CORPS FLYING FORTRESS SHATTERS RECORDS Earl Beeman of Athens Is Named First President; To Be Known as Valley Flying Club; Sixteen Attend Meet mg ATHENS, Aug. 2 Sixteen air-minded young men of the Valley towns and this area, met Tuesday evening in the office of Whipple Brothers on North Main street and organized what will be known as the Valley Flying club. Officers were elected for a three-month period so as to afford others interested in the movement, an opportunity to join the club before the charter is closed.

Earl Beeman of Athens was elected first president of the newly organized club. Others who were named to office included: Harold McCormick of Athens, vice-president; Gerald Learn of Sayre, secretary; Harry Hawk of Athens, treasurer; E. J. Cangley of Athens, public relations secretary. Besides those named to office, ethers who attended the meeting were: Donald Lantz of Sayre; Gerald Brown of Athens; Ray EI-dred of Sayre; Walter DeWitt of Sayre; Louis Rinebold of Athens; Louis Tennant of Athens; Harry Dennis of Waverly; Robert Smith of Mansfield; John Tribe of Nichols; Everett Hubbard of Athens; and Murray Allen of Athens.

i Those who are expected to be- come members within the next few weeks, and who have taken I an active interest in the move-! ment, include: Robert Friant cf Athens; John Ault of Lockwood; Leslie Marshall of Waverly, Bert Sumner of Athens; and Robert I Coleman of Waverly. Mr. Cangley first proposed the idea of a flying club about two weeks ago, and since that time interest in the movement has grown, and culminated last eve- ning with the election of officers and formulation of definite plans for the future. Meetings will be held each Tuesday during the month of August and then once every month. Harold Jipson of Endicott, a licensed pilot, was here Sunday, and supervised preliminary In- structions in the fundamentals of I flying as well as handling the i i controls of a plane.

The instruc- tions were given in the field at the Clapp farm on North Elmira street. Another licensed pilot will be here possibly Saturday and i Sunday, to continue with the work, Mr. Cangley said today. -vet-. WASHINGTON, Aug.

2 (UP) An army air corps super flying-fortress, carrying the heaviest payload ever flown in an airplane, today was acknowledged by the National Aeronautic Association to have broken all international altitude records for such flights. The NAA said the plane leached a height of 8,200 feet with a load of 31,025 pounds of water and lead in a test flight at Dayton, July 30. The previous payload record was held by a Russian plane which carried 28,660 pounds to a height of 6,561 feet almost three years ago, the NAA said. The new record, it said, was accomplished despite the terriffic lead and a strong cross-wind. The plane, under the command of Maj.

Caleb V. Haynes and Capt. W. D. Old, left the field in 48 seconds.

Meanwhile, the war department announced that seven new national records for airplane speed with various loads had been established by an army air corps Boeing B-17 flying fortress at Langley Field, Va. Carrying 11,023 pounds, the bomber flew three laps at more than 200 miles an hour, and set other records for carrying loads of 1,000 and 2,000 kilograms. Edwin Strope were guests of relatives in North Rome Sunday. Curtis Strope attended the Ad-amson reunion at Apalachin. Next Legislature Will Be Asked to Provide More Uniformity as Result of Judge Nomination Disputes HARRISBURG, Aug.

2 (UP) Pennsylvania's election code of 1937, apparently still faulty in many ways despite general re novation by the 1939 legislature, appeared certain today of undergoing further operation for sake of uniformity at the next session of the state's law-makers. Dauphin county court rulings reversing Attorney General Claude T. Reno and Commonwealth Secretary Sophia M. R. O'Hara in directing judicial vacancies in Fay-stte and York counties be filled at the November elections strength-sned belief the code is certain to be further tightened.

Meantime, Miss O'Hara, in accordance with the punctured code, notified candidates who filed nomination petitions for the Sept. 12 primary to cast lots in her office at 12 o'clock (EDT) Aug. 3 to determine order in which their names will appear on the ballots. Candidates, she explained, may sppear in person or authorize another person, by sworn proxy, to draw for them. If the aspirants for office or proxies fail to appear, Ihe commonwealth secretary is empowered to appoint someone to draw for them.

The lower court's decision that the constitutional provision for selection of candidates at the primary takes' precedence over statutory technicalities, in part revealed weakness of the code's structure. The law, as applied to the court vacancies created by death of judges Henry C. Niles and Harry A. Cot-tom, of York and Fayette counties respectively, prohibited candidates from filing because the vacancies occurred after Miss O'Hara notified county commissioners of the official number of places to be filled. Following the court's reversal of Reno's opinion upholding Miss O'Hara's refusal to permit Fayette and York county judicial candidates to file petitions, John Fertig, Harrisburg attorney and former legislative reference bureau director, said there "still are many kinks" in the code.

Of the 474 bills passed by the last legislature and signed by Gov. Arthur H. James, 18 measures altered the 1937 elections code. One of the amendments, sought by both Democrats and Republicans, reduces candidates' filing fees for minor offices from as high as $20 to $2, Authors of the bill, however, failed to fix an effective date, prohibiting candidates for local offices in the 1939 elections from receiving the new advantages until September. Laws without effective dates automatically become effective at that time.

The 1939 act does not change fees for aspirants to the state supreme and superior courts, where vacancies exist this year, or for county-wide offices. High judgeship candidates or state-wide offices must still pay a $50 fee. With exception of fee-exempt jury com BE 1 OF HIS CAREER Chicago, Aug. 2 (UP) Stricken again with a deadly soreness in his right shoulder, Dizzy Dean expects to learn today just how near he is to the end of his glorious pitching days. Dean was confident of another reprieve after he has been examined and x-rayed by Dr.

John F. Davis, specialist for the Chicago Cubs, who has nursed an unbelievable amount of pitching strength from that $185,000 arm since Diz first was considered washed up with an incurable injury last spring. His chance, however, appeared darker now than ever before. When he walked off the mound yesterday after pitching only three innings against the tail-end Philadelphia Phillies he was pale from pain. If the club physcian decides that Diz must rest for several weeks, the big right-hander's future with the Cubs is doubtful.

For the second consecutive year he is drawing a reported $20,000 for which he so far has returned only five victories against one defeat. Five straight times before his last victory he was knocked out of the box. MOTOR TRIPS ATHENS, Aug. 2 Mr. and Mrs.

A similar act makes the change affecting borough and township voters. Another series of new acts, amending the code, relieve municipal officers, departments and utilities from reporting address changes of voters in Pittsburgh, Scranton, third class cities, boroughs and townships. Under those also are sections permitting destruction of registration records of borough and township voters after a three-year period, and allows voters of third-class cities and boroughs and townships who move from one part of a county into the city or from a city into the same county, to transfer registration without personal appearance. Because the Royal Oak supporters, last of the smaller parties, polled less than the required 2 per cent of the highest vote cast last November, candidates for the state's superior and supreme courts will have the battle to themselves in the September primaries for Democratic or Republican nominations. The Socialist and Prohibition parties likewise failed in earlier elections to poll the required number of votes to qualify for the pri mary.

Independent parties, such as the Pathfinders, however, can still put a ticket in, the November contests by preempting a slate before the primaries. Charles W. Carroll, Pathfinder leader, announced re cently that his party will present opposition "where the two major parties have failed to cut out dead wood or have nominated old political hacks." Carroll qualified the statement to exempt Philadelphia District Attorney Charles F. Kelley, supported for renomination by the G.O.P.
