DIRIGIBLE WORKER ARRESTED Nib Su»pect In Plot To Wreck World’s Greatest Airship Being Built. AKRON, O., Mar. 19—(UP)— Federal secret service operatives raided the home of a forir->r Hungarian naval officer tonight, placed him under arrest on charges of violating Ohio’s syndicalism law, and disclosed mysterious phases of what they claim was a plot to sabotage the world's greatest dirigible, now in process of construction for the United State* navy. Paul F. ICassay, skilled workman for the Goodyear Dirigible company which is building the airship Akron for the government, was taken to a police station under guard of United St tes Justice department agents, county officers, and attaches of the district attorney's office. Tonight he was being questioned regarding what several officials term ‘‘an amazing suggestion of peace-time espionage." Under the state law, Kassay is directly charged “by word of mouth" with having "urged criminal violence" agalnBt the government. A set of plans showing the longitudinal section of the Akron, skillfully drawn to scale but without figures, was found in his home, police said. Kassay was unofficially accused by the arresting officers of having failed to set rivets in the frame work of Ihe big ship, and with having planned to obtain access to the control room, for the purpose of damaging the control ina-chfnery so that the first flight of the airship—scheduled for June— would result In disaster. Betty Hennlnger, local captain, and Mary Cianfoni will argue for S. C. Their opponents from Ariz ona will be Mary Rechit, winner of a recent stats oratory contest, and Donna Leah Smith, who has been on a winning college debate team for two years.

Ray MacDonald aud W. C. Kauffman, N. C. P., the players have perfected their parts until they have reached the high level of former performances on both stage and screen. Janet Pelphrey and Bob Boyle will play the leading roles of Linda Seton and Johnny Case. Linda's slater Julia, played by Brownella Baker, ls a more worldly girl who cannot sacrifice conveu-loin love. With her brother Ned, played by William A. P. While, Miss Baker gives a gracious characterisation of this rather didlcult part. Their father. Edward Seton, portrayed by Myron D. Sunde, Is the grur, ster man of business, concerned only with the material wealth he can accumulate and with the social conventions which his family must obey. In oontrast to the rather serious parta of the Seton family, the carefree couple, Susan and Nick Potter, played by Vivienne Allbrlghl and Erlln Bartlett, have aome of the best lines ln the play. Their dancing adds to the lightness of their roles, ln which th>'y seem to be a younger couple than did Heddu Hopper and Edward Everett Horton in the screen version. Social conventions are typified in the characters of Uie snooping relatives, Laura and 8eton Cram. Dorothea Bell and Sterling Kincaid handle these somewhat superficial roles with the acumen of experienced actor*. Minor parts which will be taken by Pauline Williams, Ted Magee, and Harold Essenholm further carry out the sophls'lcated story of the play. Special Interior scenes of Ihe library and the playroom of Uie luxurious Seton home In New York have been procured for tonlghl's production. Because of ita reputation, both as a stage play and a r rr a 11/ I movln* Picture, tickets for the play tor Laster Week have sold rapidly. Student books Y. W.
