Lindy's Epic Flight Theme of Symphony New York. Aug. 24 (UP) Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh's epic flight to Paris has been put to music. The bedlam of an ocean storm; the roar of an airplane's engine and exhaust; the lyrical exhilaration of success are the rlements which make up the symphony. It will be rendered for the first time next Sat urday night at the Lewisohn sta dium. John Phillip Dunn, the composer, has named the symphonic polm "We." The first theme signifies the courage of the airman. The tempo changes. Percussion instruments bang their description of tuning up; the spin of the propeller. Then comes the hammering of mechanics and the fueling of the "Spirit of St. Louis." The plane "hops off." The shrill of fire engine sirens depicts that stage in the chronological symphony and follows representation of storm and sleet. Then triumph in the landing at Paris comes as the finale. Station WRC will broadcast the music from Washington.

THINK BOY MAY HAVE KILLED SELF AFTER FINDING OF MOTHER'S BODY Chicago, Aug. 24 (UP) Every known acquaintance of Harry Hill, suspected of killing his wealthy mother in Streator, 111., was under police surveillance today as addi tional circumstantial evidence was revealed tending to link the youth with the crime. Detectives advanced the possi bility that Hill had committed sui cide by jumping into Lake Michigan when he learned yesterday after noon that his mother's body had been found buried under the floor of the cellar of her home in Streat or, 111. A warrant formally charging young Hill with the slaying was is sued today by State's Attorney Rus sel Hanson of La Salle county. From evidence gathered by investigators in Streator, Hanson advanced this theory of the shooting: "Hill and his mother had been qvarrelling about money matters. We know of five checks, on which Harry either forged, his mother's name or signed them 'Per Harry Hill.' They were cashed between July 22 and August 13. "On the latter date, Hill register ed at a hotel and stayed there two days. It is probable the shooting was committed a day or two before that time. "The slayer evidently waited un til Mrs. Hill had gone into the base ment of her home.

Hope for the missing Dole race fliers. Miss Mildred Doran, John "Auggy" Pedlar, Lieut. V. R. Knope, Jack Frost and Gordon Scott, who left the Oakland municipal airport for Hawaii a week ago today, glim mered wanly on the seventh day of silence. Chances were as faint for the re covery of Captain William P. Erwin and A. H. Eichwaldt, who flew out of the airport Friday in search of their missing companions and were believed to have crashed into the sea after sending out a frantic SOS. on their radio. In the face of discouraging re ports from the 42 submarines, des troyers, airplane carriers and their searching "eyes," ever flashing the colorless, laconic "nil-nil-nll" peri odically by radio, came word that 15 additional destroyers and one light cruiser under command of Rear Ad miral Luke McNamee, were ordered to join the search. Pacific Fleet Searching Rear Admiral Richard H. Jackson, commander of the Pacific fleet, or dered these boats into action with the idea of scrutinizing uncovered sea area before falling of the "zero hour," Thursday. Seven destroyers, deployed, across a 21 mile front, are continuing the well nigh hopeless search along the great circle steamer lane between San Francisco and Honolulu, land and sea planes dispatched from the the decks of the airplane carrier Lang'.ey and the aircraft tender Aroostook are scouting an SO mile patch of sea and every effort is be ing made to trace down recurrent reports from land or ocean. The latest of these, a story that a green flare was seen to rise and die down about 8,000 feet up the rugged slopes of Mauna Kea, in the island of Ha waii, Sunday night, has thus far fail ed to result in definite word that any of the fliers has been found. With the approach of the "zero hour" set for Thursday night by the navy department, when all Its ves sels shall abandon the hunt, doubt was expressed by mariners and ex perienced navy fliers that any of the Dole flight planes could have re mained afloat this long, even though favored with a week of mild weather.

The bullet lodged in the wall but had been removed. "Then the body was dragged across the cellar into a remote corner and buried. "Hill stayed around town a few days and then left for Chicago. He told everyone who questioned him, including Alice Sawyer, whom he was to have married next month, that his mother was out of town." While evidence was being gather ed against his son, Dr. H. C. Hill, di vorced husband of the dead woman, employed two attorneys to assure Harry a fair trial if he is captured in Chicago. . Several addresses found in a note book belonging to Hill were watched by police but none of the persons whose names were in the book had seen the suspect within the last 24 hours. He was last seen at the home of William Brydges, which he left yes terday afternoon after spending the night, less than an hour before de tectives arrived to search for him. Hill attended Knox college, Gales burg, 111., for part of the 1923-24 school year. Records show he left school because of illness.

Miss Mc Allen was one of hundreds among theater crowds who wit nessed the incident. "If you were driving in Illinois you wouldn't get away with that," she told Rosenthal. Rosenthal expressed himself re garding Illinois in a manner ob jectionable to Miss McAllen. "Say that again and I'll slap your face." she told him. Rosenthal did. So did Miss McAllen.

DAV PUSHING PLAN FOR SINKING FUND Will Make Report to Special Committee or Go Direct to Board of Education PROTECTION PAYMENT FOR FIVE BUILDINGS Investigator Advances Claim Econo mies Hae Been Effected Else where By Communities Setting Aside Fund Annually to Fay For Damage to, Or Destruction of School Houses By Fire. Only five school buildings in this city would be protected by fire in surance if the recommendation today of School Committeeman William H. Day to a special committee of the school board is passed. He proposes that the insurance money be put into a sinking fund which would be cared for by the school department itself. According to Mr. Day. who since the June meeting of the board, has made an exhaustive study of insur ance systems in other cities he will bring the matter before the special committee cf the board which was appointed to act on the proposition, but if a meeting is not held he will bring his recommendations directly to the board. H6 proposes to dis continue insurance on all the school buildings except the academic build ing of the Senior High school plant, the older of the two buildings in the Central Junior High school unit, the old Burritt school, the Smith school and the Bartlett school. The other buildings are built of fireproof material and the dangers of fire loss are not so great, he claims. He favors having the rest of the appropriation put into a fund which would take care of its own fire losses in years to come. Until this year the Consolidated School district has been paying $12, 000 a year at the rate of 37 cents per $1,000. This, according to Mr. Day, is too high a rate o insurance and after a study of several months ho brought the matter to the atten tion of the school board in June. He had figures to show that the rate New Britain should pay was 25 cents per $1,000. The board voted to leave the matter in the hands of the finance committee acting with Mr. Day as a special committee. Mr. Day has been working alone on the proposition. No meeting of the committee, of which George W. Traut is chairman, has been called, it is said. Mr. Day has communicated with J. L. Sherard of the state legisla ture of South Carolina and found that that state has a system where by the cities contribute to a fund which takes care of their own fire losses. This has been a great saving, it is claimed. If the school board fails to ap prove the possibilities of the plan, I Mr. Day is planning a compromise I plan by which the school buildingc I would be insured on a mutual basis i as is the case with 14 school dis j tricts in Pennsylvania. He has com municated with several authorities on the matter and will probably I have all the necessary data with i him before the next meeting of the I board. In this plan the buildings are 'said to have as much protection at 1 four-fifths of the cost. LIQUOR LAW VIOLATORS 00 IN ROGUES' GALLERY f Capital to Class Notorious Rum Runner With Other Criminals Washington. Aug. 24 UP) Fla grant prohibition violators in the na tional capital are to be placed in the police rogues' gallery." The finger printing and photo graphing of persons arrested for ma- i jor liquor charges will aid .the po llice in investigations of other crimes and will act as a deterrent to other I prohibition violators, the authorities believe. Explaining an order issued yester day for the procedure, Major Edwin B. Hesse, police superintendent, said "rum runners often graduate in other types of criminals" and the fingerprint and photographic record would facilitate the police greatly in their investigations and also will identify old criminals. He also be lieves the ordeal of being "mugged" would frighten many would-be rum tunners from participation in liquor traffic. The police tried out the effect of finger printing and photographing of prohibition violators recently during a convention here, Major Hesse said, and at the next convention there was a noticeable absence of liquor ped dlers. "They didn't like the rogues' gallery at all," he declared. The violators to be photographed will be left to the discretion of the various police official's under the or der, but transporting in vehicles, selling and illegal possession of a still were characterized as major violations. 43 IX HAKBOH SWIM New Haven, Aug. 24 UP) Forty three swimmers are entered in the cross harbor swim from Savin Rock to Lighthouse Point this afternoon.

SACCO COMMITTEE TO DEFY HEALTH RULES AND PARADE BODIES THROUGH BOSTON'S LARGEST STREETS SUNDAY PAONESSA RALLIES TO QUIGLEY'S AID Ex-Mayors in Agreement on Sewage Disposal Experiients CALLS IT STATE'S TASK Former Democratic Executive Says He Advised Mayor Weld on In auguration Day to Do Nothing on Sewer Question. That 'he thoroughly agrees with ex-Mayor George A. Quigley in the latter's campaign agajnst the con struction of a sewage disposal plant at the expense of the city and that on the day of Mayor Weld's inauguration he told the mayor not to do anything about sewers until he had consulted either ex-Mayor Quigley or himself, 'was the state ment of ex-Mayor Angelo M. Paon essa, who declared today that every public spirited citizen should sup port Mr. Quigley in his campaign. "The great problem of the" city at present is not school building con struction, water board improvements or even the construction plant, but the reconstruction of the storm wa ter sewers which are inadequate," Paonessa declared. Mr. Quigley's proposal that the state build the sewage disposal plant and if it functions success fully have the city purchase it, also meets with the approval of ex Mayor Paonessa. According to Mr. Paonessa he made a similar propo sition before a committee of 35 in a conference before Judge Markham in Hartford two years ago. On the day of Mayor Weld's in auguration, Mr. Paonessa said that while in conference with Mr. Weld, he explained to him in detail the sewerage situation In New Britain, and his advice at the time was not to do anything in the matter of sewage disposal until he had con sulted either Mr. Quigley or him self. He said he had confidence in Mr. Quigley because of his consci entious study of the matter. In 1919 the common council pass ed a resolution recommended by the state that an appropriation of $10, 000 be given to the state to experi ment on the New Britain sewerage system. Mr. Paonessa, then alder man, fought a losing fight against the proposition and when the vote was taken he alone voted in opposi tion, he said. In 1920, Mr. Paonessa claimed, he went to Mayor O. F. Curtis and ask ed him to stop the further expendi ture of the $10,000. An investiga tion by the mayor brought the In formation that the state had spent $T00 more than the amount appro priated and Mr. Paonessa claimed no relief was brought about. As ex-Mayor George A. Quigley stated in his reply to Engineer S. H. Wadhams of the state water board. Mr. Paonessa agrees that the city is willing to cooperate with the state in reasonable measures but that it is tired of experiments. BANKER FLEECED OF S250 !

Funeral plans for the humble shoemaker and fish peddler who were electrocuted early yesterday for a seven-year-old crime of mur der were the cause o fthe post mortem controversy. Loyal friends of the cause wanted to give the public an opportunity to pay final tribute to the "mar tyrs."
