T., in Pearl Harbor. Speed Record Set It had established a new speed i record for the 2400-mile crossing, j despite the fact Capt. Edwin C. ; Musick and his crew of five flew in wide circles above the harbor I for more than half an hour after first sighting the island. The plane reached Pearl Harbor aitei 17 hours. 44 minutes elapsed time from Alameda, Calif., where it soared away at 3:50 p.m. Tues-oav afternoon. It landed after 18 hours and 31 minutes flying time, six hours better than the former California-to-Hawaii record of 24 hours. 48 minutes established by six navy seaplanes last year. To Hawaii, and to aviation interests. the new speed record was only incidental to the fact that after years of effort Honolulu had been linked with the mainland by air. “Routine Flight” In contrast to the adventurous flights of past years, which claimed 10 lives, the Clipper’s passage was, as described by directors, “a routine flight.” Exactly on schedule the huge ship lifted from the water off Alameda airport to blaze the trail for air mail and passenger service first to Hawaii, and finally to China. It carried 10,000 pieces of mail dispatched by collectors, and tons of equipment for the . Kaneohoe bay base to be established in Horo-lulu for the transpacific service. Wire Flashes News Word of the landing was flashed to the steamer North Haven at Midway Island, where another base is being established for the California to China service.

Senate Legion Official Scores Bill Finance Committee Holds Public Hearings on Payment Plan WASHINGTON. April 17. (IIP)— Strong opposition to the administration’s efforts to compromise on the bonus issue developed tonight as veterans’ leaders attacked the new Harrison bill in the senate. Milo Warner, vice commander of the American Legion, studied the measure carefully and said it was ‘absolutely not acceptable to the legion.” An analysis of the Harrison proposal was telegraphed to Frank Belgrano, national commander, who is expected to oppose it. Roosevelt Silent President Roosevelt refused to comment, although he bas been represented as willing to sign the bill. Despite the first flurry of antagonism from veteran leaders, Chairman Pat Harrison, democrat, Mississippi, of the senate finance committee, planned to rush hearings on his bill so that it may be placed before the upper chamber next week. Heads of veterans* organizations, officials of the treasury and veterans’ bureaus and some critics of any plan to pay the bonus before it is due in 1945, have been invited to testify. The bonus bill will take precedence over the revised NRA measure. Substitute Bill If favorably reported by the finance committee, Harrison said he would offer his bill as a substitute for the Patman bonus measure passed by the house several weeks ing bases and radio stations will; ag0 Harrison bill differs b? installed there, at Wake Islands, 1 sft&rply from the Patman proposal Guam and Manila, comDleting the chain of control and landing points projected for the 8,500-mile air route.

Chinese Club To Fete Consul at Luncheon Meet and the Mississippi senator said tonight his plan would not cause the imposition of new taxes nor lead to monetary inflation. The Patman bill simply authorizes and directs the administration to put its presses to work and turn out $2,300,000,000 in non-interes„ bearing treasury notes or “greenbacks” to pay off the bonus. It is one of the most ambitious currency inflation proposals submitted to this congress. Date Advanced Harrison’s recommendations are less simple but also less inflationary. Under his bill the date of maturity of the adjusted service certificates would be moved up to 1938 and the certificates dated 1918 instead of 1925.

A full moon interfered somewhat with navigation calculations, Noonan said, inasmuch as he preferred to make his observations by stars. Summer School To Give Library Work Intricate systems of cataloging, children's literature, and the use of books and library by teachers and pupils of junior and senior high schools will be discussed in a course in librarianship to be given during the 1935 summer session, it is announced by Lester B. Rogers, dean of the session. The course is open to both undergraduate and graduate students. Mary W. Kaplan, cataloger for the Los Angeles board of education, and Gladys English, children’s department librarian of the Los Angeles city public library, have been named to conduct the summer classes. The summer session begins June 17. with two semesters being scheduled. The first concludes July 26, and the second will convene from i July 27 to August 30. tion of cashing it in immediately at its cash surrender value, or exchanging it for a government bond bearing three per cent interest, or of holding his certificate until 1945. Cost of the Patman plan would be $2,300,000,000. Harrison said his proposal would cost half a billion dollars less. Stripped of its technical phrases, the Harrison bill would operate in this manner: John Smith has a $1,000 adjusted service certificate and he needs cash badly. He applies to the veterans’ administration and hands over his certificate. He is given a government bond for approximately $750, which he may cash at once. He has no further claim upon the government as the $750 represents the actual value of his $1,000 certificate on the day he surrenders it. tnte: ing keen competition "'ith fer little theater groups in the [thi; nd.

Relief Campaign To Start With Census of Idle “The overthrow of Alfonso III can easily be called the funeral of the Spanish monarchy, not only because it has commited suicide politically, but because it has killed itself socially as well,” stated Casmiro Alvarez, Spanish lecturer and journalist, yesterday afternoon, in an address given under the auspices of the Spanish department and the sponsorship of the University of International Relations. “Spain has been degenerating since Charles II came to the throne. As a result of political anci moral corruption throughout the ages, down through the Bourbon dynasty, these changes, that were surprising to many, can readily be seen as the natural, inevitable outcome of the struggle and repression on the part of an essentially democratic people,” declared Alvarez. The lecture included recent political, social, and cultural devel-opmer's in Spain, enumeration of related events leading up to the overthrow of the monarchy and the establishment of the republic. He ended his talk with a discussion concerning the trend of events under the Republican form of government. Much to the contrary belief of many people, Alvarez declared, Spain has complete religious freedom, and “she can now call herself truly a free country.” Alvarez is a representative of the Del Amo foundation established by Dr. Gregorio Del Amo of Los Angeles and Spain, for the purpose of furthering cultural relationships between Spain and the United States in general, but more particularly between Spain and California. He has been correspondent and feature writer for La Prensa, Spanish newspaper, published in New York, for 15 years. His interests as lecturer center on the dissemination in this country of cultural information in the field of Hispanic studies. In the past Alvarez has lectured on the various topics in this field at Stanford, St. Marys, and the University of San Francisco. Convention Will Be Held at S.C.

School To Give Work by Shaw “Pygmalion" Selected for Annual Production by Speech Players , -r~ • Deciding on - Bemarff Shaw’s “Pygmalion” for its annual commencement week production, the School of Speech announces tryouts to begin next Monday.

Kan., high school in 1927,” he said. “I decided to come west, work a year and try to gain weight so I could go to Kansas and make the football team. “I worked for three months in a garage in Brawley, Calif. In 1929 I decided to return to Kansas as I had picked up considerable weight. I got as far as Holbrook, Ariz.. where I got mixed up with some fellows who were planning to rob a service station. “A man was killed during the holdup. I was brought back from New Mexico, admitted being ‘in’ on the job, but I didn’t kill that fellcw.
