Elder Stillman Defends
Plate Throwing at Cere
mony by Wife.
By United Press
NEW YORK, July 28.—Dodging
publicity in much the same fashion
as photographers dodged crockery
at Grande Anse, Bud and Lena Still
man, happy honeymooners, arrived
today at-'Grand Central Station and
were taken to an unknown address.
A few hours after the couple
-reached their hiding place, James A.
Stillman, father of the bridegroom,
stood at the doorway of his lavish
Park Avenue apartment and told
the United Press correspondent:
"I won’t say where they are.
Maybe I don’t know. That’s for you
to find out, but you’d better leave
them alone, hadn’t you?”
Elder Stillman Jovial
The elder Stillman was in a jovial
mood. He defended the plate-hurling
exhibition of his wife which fea
tured the post-nuptial ceremonies at
Grand Anse Tuesday.
A photographer approached the
apartment and asked the multi
millionaire to pose. Stillman refused
the cameraman took the picture
“That’s just typical of the way
things were at the camp,” he ex
claimed, although there was little
trace of anger in his voice. “My
wife asked the photographers to
forget their cameras during the
ceremony, but they broke their
promise and that’s why they got
Sail at Midnight Sunday
Stillman said that his son and
daughter-in-law were not in his
apartment, although he admitted
that the exquisite wedding trous
seau of the bride, who now pos
sesses such finery as seldom has
graced a girl of the Canadian north
woods, was there.
The young couple will sail at mid
night Sunday on the White Star
liner Olympic, Stillman said.
It was that same vessel on which
Bud’s father and mother engaged
passage when they became recon
ciled after years of stormy litiga
The moneymooners escaped an

Big Cut in
Two Cities Honor Smith and
By United Press
Memories of a silver white plane
circling over this city two weeks
ago on its start for the Hawaiian
Islands were revived today when
the occupants of the plane, Ernest
Smith and Emory Bronte, sailed by
steamer through the Golden Gate
with an airplane escort overhead.
Smith and Bronte were on the
liner President Jefferson returning
to two cities that have planned a
two-day reception for them.
At almost the exact place N where
they ehtered the fog when they
departed for the islands—a fog that
kept them from seeing the water all
the way across—two planes swooped
down over the President Jefferson
and a wreath of red, white and blue
flowers was dropped on the deck
of the ship.
The planes were piloted by two
“buddies” of Smith, aviators in the
Pacific Air Transport.
The air mail planes were joined
by Army ships from Crissy Field
and private planes, which escorted
the ship into San Francisco bay.
After the docking cf the President
Jefferson the two fliers were to be
taken immediately to Oakland,
where they will be feted today and
tonight. Tomorrow they will come
to San Francisco to receive the
plaudits of this city.
