CRUISER ABANDONS PLANE. Richmond Starts to Iceland With Rescued Aviators. By the Associated Press. ABOARD U. S. S. RICHMOND, Au gust 4.—The Boston, the airplane pilot ed by Lieut. Leigh Wade in the Ameri can Army world flight, was abandoned early this morning. The p'ane was taken in tow by the Richmond yesterday after Lieut. Wade and his mechanic, Sergt. Arthur M. Ogden, had been forced down at sea by engine trouble w'hile negoti ating the hop from Kirkwall, in the Orkneys, to Iceland. The Richmond s effort to salvage the wrecked plane was abandoned when the machine, which had been gradually fill ing while being towed in a heavy sea, capsized. Seeing the hopelessness of at tempting further to saVe it. the officers cut it adrift. The Richmond. - which today is steaming for Reykjavik, Iceland, ex pects to arrive at that port tomor row morning. Wade and Ogden will remain on board her for the remain der of the trip to Boston by sea along the route of the transatlantic flight. Value of Patrol Shown. The Richmond, which has been making four knots an hour, towing the wrecked plane, was within five miles of the lighthouse on Suderoe Island, in the Faroes, when she was obliged to abandon the machine. As the Richmond steamed off, the trawler, with a whale alongside,'was still standing by. Her skipper ap peared to be undecided whether to follow the drifting plane or remain with the whale, but finally concluded to take the latter alternative. The value of the naval patrol pro tection for the flyers was amply dem onstrated in yesterday's search for Wade and Ogden. After the patrol ling vessels had been informed that the flyers had made a forced landing, the Richmond and the Billingsley con verged on the position indicated by the message sent by Lieut. Smith, and the destroyer, making 31 knots, had ample time to reach the damaged plane before the late darkness in these latitudes. The Billingsley, in fact, reached the Boston immediately after Wade and Ogden’s machine was found by the Grimsby trawler. Radio Stilled to Search. The radio w’as stilled, except for official business, during the search for the missing airmen. Lieut. Wade, on board the Rich mond, was chagrined over the fate that had brought his plane to grief and stopped the participation of him self and Sergt. Ogden in the flight when it was so near a conclusion, but he took the disappointment well. Describing his experiences, Lieut. Wade said: ‘Tt was the first time we had had trouble with the oil pump and our second forced landing in the 19,000-mile flight. The first was on the Japanese coast when we came down for water. “On yesterday's flight, when the trouble came, we signaled Lieut. Smith by waving that we were forced down: also that the engine was out of commission, requesting him to ad- Vise the patrol. We expected to re main in the water until the Richmond arrived. We saw a merchant vessel at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, but could not attract its attention. An hour later the trawler which rescued ■us was sighted. We had to signal her with pistol and rifle before she noticed us.” Lieut. Wade said he* and Ogden were afraid at first to eat the sand wiches and drink the water they had, (Continued on Page i, Column 3.) Aviators of Wrecked Plane Game as Storm Dashes Hopes Lieut. Wade and Sergt. Ogden See Ma chine Cut Adrift After Cruiser’s Heroic Effort to Save It. by FREDERICK R. NEELY, Staff Correspondent of The Star. ON BOARD U. S. S. RICHMOND, UNDER WAT TO REYKJAVIK, Ice land. August 4 (via Wireless). — Forced down with a dead motor In the heart of the untamed North, Lieut. Leigh Wade and his mecha nician, Serpt. Henry H. Ogden, virtu ally counted themselves out of the world flight today—the faithful ship that carried them safely three-quar ters of the way around the earth, having been abandoned in polar sea. Barely snatched from death in an Arctic hurricane that lashed the ocean with staggering fury a brief hour or two after they had been res cued, the two intrepid American aviators are hurrying to Reykjavik, on board the light cruiser Richmond, Ito meet Lieut. Lowell H. Smith and I Lieut. Eric Nelson, who have reached ! Homafjord, Iceland, safely. Take Accident Gamely. “It's all in a lifetime," was the philosophic exclamation of Lieut. Wade a few minutes after his plane had been abandoned while officers of LITTLE HOPE IDE CAN fINIS| FLIGHT Out of It Unless Wrecked Plane Is Repaired, Say Officials Here. | Unless the wrecked airplane of i Lieut.

I Spare parts are available at Rcy j kjavik and repairs can be made there unless the Boston was completely I smashed.

One possibility still discussed was i that a naval plane might be furnished j to replace the wrecked craft. May Not Send Snbstifnte. ! It was indicated that consideration i of a plan to send a new craft to re place the Boston would not be pur j sued because it was found to be im i practicable. i On arrival of the Richmond at Reykjavik, unless Lieut. Wade's ship j is in better condition than reports have indicated, he will be instructed I to continue to the United States on I the cruiser Richmond, which took him aboard in midocean. Army Air Service officials received I wireless reports from the Navy patrol force that the Richmond nad recovered the wrecked Boston and .that there still was some hope that 'it might be salvaged. If not too 'badly smashed, facilities aboard the cruiser are available for repair work. The advices gave no details and did not make it clear whether they were forwarded before press ■ dis patches telling of the abandonment of the craft. One Airship Accessible. There is one airship in easy access capable of taking the place of the wrecked Boston. It is a Douglas machine now at Langley Field and is similar to the one in which Maj. Martin, first commander of the flight, flew to Alaska on the first part ot the expedition. Weather conditions, possible ways in which to expedite the delivery of a plane to the far North and other i considerations first must Jie taken into account. Delay to the other members of the squadron also must be borne in mind. Army and Navy officers expressed keen disappointment that Lieut. Wade's machine had been put out of commission with his goal of complet ing the flight almost in sight. Rear Admiral Magruder, command ing the cruiser squadron protecting the travel lane, has authority. Navy Department officials said today, to turn over to Lieut. Leigh Wade one of the special cruiser planes to re place the Boston, if this plan is found feasible. Cruiser Plane's Powers. The cruiser plane, carried as regu lar equipment by the Richmond class, is capable of six hours’ continuous flight, at from 75 to 90 miles an hour, giving it ample radius, according to naval experts, to enable the Ameri can flyer to complete the trip. The plane is a two-seater and is not es sentially different in operation from that which carried Lieut. Wade 19,000 miles before his mishap, j Lieut. Wade before the flight served ias engineer officer at Bolling Field, : D. C., and was one of the pilots chos len to represent the Army in the bombing maneuvers which resulted in the sinking of the three old German warcraft oft the Virginia Capes last Summer. He has flown all types of airplanes, American, British. French, Italian and German, acting in the ca pacity as test pilot at McCook Field, Dayton. Ohio. He has held the alti tude record for the Martin bomber type for more than a year. Staff Sergt. Henry H. Ogden, his mechanic, is the son of E. B. Ogden of Woodville, Miss. He is 23 years old and is regarded as one of the most expert motor engineers in the erUisted ranks of the Army Air Serv iil.

If our pontoons had sprung a leak sooner we would have gone down at 2 o'clock this afternoon." A broken oil pump and the fickle climate of this treacherous land of ice and fog combined to rob Lieut. Wade and Sergt. Ogden of the fruits of victgry just when they seemed so close, at the very hour they seemed straightened out down the home stretch. And their game, “never-say die” spirit nearly cost then* their lives, when they fought bitterly to take the air again in the face of the approaching storm. It was the heart-breaking end of one of the most heroic battles in the history of the sea.

MEXICO CITY. August 4.—Federal forces are searching for the slayers of Mrs. Rosalie Evans, who was shot dead from ambush near Texmelucan, Puebla, Saturday night. The widow of a British subject, a former president of the Bank of London in Mexico, Mrs. Evans was ono of the central figures in the re cent international affair between Great Britain and Mexico, culminating in the withdrawal of the British charge des archives, Herbert C. Cum mins. Mr. Cummins was accused by the Mexicans of undue harshness in his communciations concerning Mn. Evans' dispute with the Mexican gov ernment over attempts to divide her estate under the agrarian program. Accompanied by John Strauss, the German manager of her estate. Mrs. Evans was driving homeward, when shots came from the left and she fell from the wagon. Her hair be came entangled in the wheels and the body was dragged some distance, badly mutilating the face, Strauss made a desperate effort to defend his employer, but was wounded In the arm and forced to abandon the fight. He managed, however, to release her body from the wheels and summon help before collapsing. I'. S. Envoy in Case. American Charge d’Affaires Schoen field last night conferred with For eign Minister Saenz. He said later that they discussed the details of the attack, but he was otherwise un communicative. Representatives of the British consulate general have gone to Texmelucan to bring the body to Mexico City. Mrs. Evans' six-year fight to hold her hacieYda, consisting of 1,080 hectares (about 436 acres) and called San Ptdro Coxtocan, has been fol lowed with intense interest in diplo matic circles and in both the British and American colonies. Mrs. Evans was formerly of Brownsville, Tex. The question figured in the pre recognition conferences last Summer, when the American delegates' unoffi cial efforts succeeded in bringing about a meeting between Mrs. Evans and President Obregon. Several months ago, when word reached the capital that the hacienda was sur rounded by armed agrarians, volun teers from the British colony visited Puebla to help protect the owner. She personally waged a fearless fight, several times driving invaders off her land at pistol point. She in sisted on living in the ruined ranch had been burned, and, besides her employes, was protected by George Camp, a Texan, who aban doned his contracting business here several months ago to go to the ha cienda. His present whereabouts Is unknown. Official admission that the Evans case had been taken over by the American embassy came several weeks after Charge Cummins' de parture, when Ambassador Warren said Mrs. Evans had laid the entire question before him. The Mexican government’s stand has always been that Mrs. Evans was making obsti nate and unjustifiable resistance to its plans for the division of her es tate under the governmental agra rian program, with proper remunera tion to her.

LONDON, August 4.—The British government is leaving the case sur rounding the killing of Mrs. Rosalie Evans entirely in the hands of the American embassy in Mexico City, which has been handling British af fairs there since the withdrawal of Herbert C.

OBJECTIONS TO DAWES PLAN PROGRAM HINTED Herriot Places Success of Economic Recovery Squarely on Berlin. BY EDGAR ANSEL MOWRER. By Ksilio to The Star and Chicago Daily New*. Copyright, 1924. BERLIN, August 4.—The German delegation, which leaves Berlin to day for London, comprises some 15 persons, led by Chancellor Marx, For eign Minister Stresemann and Finance Minister Luther. The Germans were surprised at the tone of the in vitation and its peremptory request that the delegation reach London Monday, but It was suggested that perhaps the English were unaware that Berlin was 24 hours removed from London. The German program is naturally to obtain the best possible terms. More specifically, the Germans will maintain that it is impossible to modify any portions of the Dawes re port against other concessions from France. This especially applies to transfers, which, as foreseen under the Dawes plan, remain the exclusive competence of the agent. German* to Stand Firm, Furthermore, the Germans will sug gest that the system of arbitration tribunals desired by the French be extended further to include such matters as deciding whether German economic unity is really restored. Other technical points involve pay ments in kind and the superseding of the Micum agreements. But most important are three or four political points. The principal one of these undoubtedly is the mili tary evacuation of the Ruhr. Here Germany expects to stand firm and obtain a definite promise of evacua tion within a limited time if she maintains her new obligations. The question of French control of certain Rhineland railways and the continued presence of French railway men must also be negotiated. The third point is the evacuation of the Rhine land zones, as the Germans consider the French viewpoint that the time of the Rhineland occupation has not begun to run, is simply outrageous. STRESSES BERLIN PACT. Herriot Says Dawes Plan Success Rests on Germans. By the Associated Press. LONDON, August 4.—The ultimate success of the interallied conference on reparation now depends upon the attitude of the Germans, Premier Herriot of France told the Associated Press today. “If the German delegates are wise,” said M. Herriot. “we shall have a good peace, not only for Europe, but for the entire world. Everything now depends upon a proper under standing by Germany of the part she is to play. The allies have reached a complete agreement. “In the attainment of the happy re sults we have achieved France has not made a bargain but has merely proposed a thesis of justice, founded upon full recognition of the princi ple of arbitration, which is the basis of the London agreement.” Praise* American* Work. The French premier paid tribute to the helpful co-operation of Frank B. Kellogg, the American ambassa dor, and the other American partici pants in the consultations, James A. Logan and Owen D. Young, In bring ing about the agreement. He ex pressed also his gratitude to Presi dent Coolidge for the friendly interest of the American Chief Executive. "We have reached a complete agreement and America has been very helpful,” he added. "It is only nec essary now for Germany to under stand her duty.” From a French source it is learned that M. Herriot has spent the great er part of his time since Saturday discussing with members of the dele gation the procedure to be followed at the conference after the arrival of the Germans tomorrow.

TWO CENTS SECOND ALIENIST SEES IMPAIRMENT OF LEOPOLD’S MIND Dr. Heaty, Defense Expert, Corroborates White’s Find ings on Loeb. SEES ABSURD CHILDISH PACT FACTOR IN CRIME Court Prevents Elaboration of Physiatrist’s Theory as Un fit for Publication. B.r the Associated Press. CHICAGO. August 4—Dr. William Healy of Boston, testifying in the * ranks hearing this morning, testified that in his judgment there was some steady impairment of own judgment concerning his ownself, par ticularly his relationship to life. Pre viously Dr. W. A. White of Washing ton testified Richard Loeb's personality was undergoing a process of disintegra tion. Dr. Healy asserted "an incredibly ab surd childish compact bound the boys together and had a bearing on the ulli niate acts of the youths.” Dr. Healy testified both boys had told him they would again go through with the Franks murder if their asso ciations and the conditions were the same. He said I»eb told him he ’’found nothing to deter him," and that Leopold had said he would commit the crime again “if it gave him pleasure." Court Halts Report. As to the conditions of the "child ish compact” which had influenced the later lives of Leopold and Loeb, nothing was said in open court, Judge John R. Caverly ruling with Dr. Healy that the matter was un printable and having him recite it to the court stenographers for the rec ord. "Nothing that is unfit for publica tion is coming out here." Judge Cav erly asserted. Dr. Healy was the second alienist to testify for the defense and his testimony went in over State ob jection, Judge Caverly again ruling that the court had a right to listen to evidence in mitigation of punish ment, as he had ruled Friday when the testimony of Dr. William A. White was permitted, marking a new departure in Illinois jurisprudence. Healy to Take Stand. Another of testimony by alien ists was in prospect today. Dr. Healy said he would take the stand and, using the recently pub lished Hulburt-Bowman physical re port on the conditions of Leopold and Loeb, would testify to conclusions similar to those drawn by Dr. Wil liam A. White of Washington, the de fense’s first expert witness, Who ad vanced the "childhood phantasy" theory with a merger of the person alities of Loeb and Leopold as a rea son for the murder. It was the eleventh court day. The defense changed its plans when it was decided to have Dr. James Whitney Hall and Dr. William J. Hickson testify. It had been an nounced that the testimony of alien ists would be coneludcd with Dr. Wil liam J. Healy of Boston and Dr. Ber nard Glueck of New York City. Crowe Prepares Rebuttal. State's Attorney Robert E. Crowe is preparing a rebuttal of the alienists’ testimony with a view of showing that the prisoners are intellectually capable of plotting just such a de fense as is being offered. Mr. Crowe says he believer it pos sible that these two "intellectual su permen,” realizing that their lives de pended on "mental irresponsibility, ’’ had concocted such a series of re action as they knew an alienist might seek as a basis for a finding of ab normality. Clarence Darrow, chief defense counsel, said yesterday that his two clients are being tried by extraju dicial agencies, not for the murder to which they have pleaded guilty, but for their wealth, their intellect, their social position and a score of other contributing circumstances wnich would not weigh down an ob scure murderer. He said the public demand for the blood of the boys was unfair. REINHARDT HOME BURNS. Fire of Suspicious Origin Damages Producer’s Castle. VIENNA, August 4 (Jewish Tele graphic Agency).
