ZEPP FLEET MAY FLY TO AMERICA

Berlin, Feb. 23. - A great fleet of Zeppelins, flying to America, and bringing food back to Germany is a possibility if this war lasts several years longer, an authority on aeronautics declared today.

"Seems like a dream," he said. "But a war that has seen submarines go from Wilhelmshaven to Constantinople, and Zeppelins and aeroplanes play unexpected roles, may see some even more startling developments in say three or five years."

MYSTERIOUS BIPLANE OVER ELEVATORS

CIRCLES AROUND GRAIN HELD IN WISCONSIN FOR ENTENTE ALLIES.

Duluth, Minn., Feb. 26 - The mysterious biplane which circled over Superior, Wis., elevators holding grain to be shipped to England, France and Russia for nearly an hour and a half today, and then disappeared inthe direction of the United States Steel plant, west of Duluth, was being sought tonight by Superior and Duluth people.

Half a dozen employes of the Great Northern railway working in the shops near Allouez, described the aeroplane at length.

Several nights ago people in this city claimed to have seen moving lights in the sky and heard the explosions of a motor. There is no aeroplane known to be owned or operated in this district or on this side of the Canadian line.

One theory here is that these flights may be the operations of some amateur aviator who is trying out his machine, but who he is or where he is from, is not known here. But that an aeroplane flew over St. Louis Bay early today has been vouched for by many people.

CAPTURE OF TOY BALLOON ENDS FEAR OF AIR RAID

Duluth, Minn., March 1. - With the capture of a toy balloon carrying three lights, Duluth's worry over being bombed from the air became less severe today. There's a faint chuckle running through the city today because it is thought a gigantic hoax has been worked.

It was learned a shipment of toy balloons was sent to Iron River, Wis., probably accounting for the sighting of aeroplanes over Ashland's munition plants. There are still several who still insist they heard the purring of the aeroplane's engines they originally reported over the city.
