LAKEHURST, N. J., October IS.— The cabin of the ZR-3 came lightly to rest upon the earth at Lakchurst Field at 9:55 a.m. today, and the giant Zeppelin was in her berth at 10:45. She completed her journey from Friedrichshafen, Germany, a dis tance estimated at 5,000 miles, in 81 hours 25 minutes. The craft made a beautiful land ing, appearing over the northern edge of this Naval Air Station at 9:16 a.m. She drove straight over the airdrome to the far edge of the field, where she headed around and skirted the station for a quarter of its circumference, before nosing downward into the breeze and com ing to a stop before the airdrome. The ZR-3 looked like a silver gilded ball on a Christmas tree as she settled downward head-on. She came so slowly that she appeared an inanimate object, suspended by some invisible force. Makes Easy Lauding-. Thirty-four minutes after she was sighted her motors stopped. For a moment she drifted easily, bobbing up and down like a small boat in a rolling swell. Straight past the red and white signal on the ground which indicated her chosen landing place, she glided. 1 Jt appeared that she Intended tirMril airdrome, but the pilot of tacular exhibition. When within 200 yards of the towering ‘drome’ a trap door flopped open from the bottom of the main cabin, and out dropped a bundle of rope as large as a barrel. Another trapdoor opened and an other coll of rope thudded below. Signal horns and bells tooted some where out of sight in the giant craft overhead. Whistles shrilled below. Sailors and marines hooked their spiderweb rope harnesses into the trailing towlines of the dirigible and almost -without effort drew her gently down. Thousands Shout Greetings. A mighty shout went up from thou sands as the air vessel came down. "Please don’t make so much noise,’’ shouted Comdr. J. H. Klein, Jr., com mander of the Lakehurst station and passenger on the ZR-3, as he leaned from a forward cabin port. The din of welcome was silenced instantly, and a clear, sharp order of the nav igators to the grounding crew rang out distinctly. Ik - . Hugo Eckener, smiling, but stern voiced, was recognized by a little group of German citizens who crowded the State police and sailor guards to shout their congratulations, i Maj. P. M. Kennedy, In the uniform of the United States Army, stood at another porthole smiling as he bowed happily to the crowd. Officers Are Happy. Then, one after another, as the more arduous duties of landing were completed, all four of the American officers aboard the dirigible were pre sented to view, side by side with the German navigators in the cabin ports. All looked glowingly happy. They were clean shaven; their uniforms were splc and span. They did not even look tired. They appeared In no hurry to leave the ship. The doors at the east end of she ‘drome had drawn apart to receive the visitor. She landed near those doors, but because of a slight change in the direction of the breeze it was decided to lead her across the west ern threshold Instead. So, slowly yet majestically, she was eased the length of the great build ing. swung around at the western portal and headed for the dim-lit cavern which was to be her home. Craft Is Guarded. Immedfately that she was snubbed fast her navigating officers and crew disembarked. Officers climbed into her hull and cabin with mechanics to begin an inspection of the gas bags,- duraluminum structure and motore. Police lines were closely drawn around the great field where the German-made craft rests. The roads, which even yesterday were dotted with automobiles coming hither, were lined before daybreak today. As nearly as was possible with the per sonnel of sailors and marines that remained after 400 had been mustered for the landing crew, the two miles of flr-trlmmed circumference of the field was patrolled. Main gates were rigidly guarded. Admission was by credential only. Only a scattering few of the automo biles that drove up to those gates got past the little guardhouse on the Innerside. It has been determined that the public should attend the arrival of thd ZR-3 only at long range. For she was 'filled with a highly inflammable and disastrously explosive hydrogen, 250,000 cubic feet of it. Eekotr Is Jubilant. MT.

AVord of the landing of the craft was given to the President a few minutes after she had come to the ground at the Lakehurst airdrome and the President immediately dis patched a message to Dr. Hugo Eck ener, who was charged with her de livery to thaAlnUcd States. In other government quarters, es pecially at the Navy, where constant vigil had been held since the ship rose from her German starting point, great enthusiasm and relief was evi dent at her safe arrival. President Coolidge termed the per formance of the ZR-3 an epochal achievement. Text of Me*»age, “I congratulate you,” he tele graphed to Dr. Eckener, "upon the successful completion of the trans atlantic voyage of the great dirigi ble which you have brought from Germany to the United States. "It is not merely a stirring experi ence, a splendid adventure. J>'ar more, It is an epochal achievement, because It demonstrates as never before the feasibility of long-distance flights by lighter-than-air craft and their ability to carry significant ton nages in passengers or cargo. “The skill and efficiency of the Ger man technicians in building such a wonderful aircraft and your skill in successfully navigating it without stop and without mishap from Fried richshafen, Germany, to Lakehurst, N. J., is an event of world-wide in terest. "It is a matter of great satisfac tion to me and to the people of the United States that the peaceful re lations between Germany and Amer ica have been fully re-established, and this great airship has inaugurated the first direct flight between Germany and America. I hope that your stay in the United States will be enjoyable and that the notable services you have rendered in bringing over this airship will be a matter of satisfac tion and pride to you throughout your life.” Crew Organizing Begun. Organization of an American crew to take charge of the ZR-3 was be gun today in the Bureau of Navai Aeronautics, but beyond that no plans have been made for immediate operation of the ship. Under i.ne German contract 11 members of the crew which brought her over will “stand by" at least three months to assist in the training. They Include Navigator Hans Flemming. Quarter master Walter Scherz. Helmsmen Ludwig Marx and Karl Sammt, Chief Machinist Gustav Belser, Machinists Emil Groslnger, Herman Pfaft and E. Martin, and Sailmaker Ludwig Knorr. When an efficient operating force has been organized the department will take up a program of tests to Include long cross-country flights over proposed commercial routes with freight and passengers. It is considered probable that commercial firms may be asked to bid for the privilege of operating the Zeppelin during this'experimental period. LANGLEY TO APPEAL Will Take Case to U. S.

Tells Hearing One-Man Car Economy. An intimation that higher car’fare might be asked for If one-man cars are ruled out of use was made by Wil liam F. Ham. president of the Wash ington Railway and Klectrlc Company, at the public hearing at the District Ruilding today on the question of whether the number of such cars should be increased. After Mr. Ham had presented testi mony for more than an hour ts show that street car traffic is falling off rapidly on both the Washington Rail way and Electric and Capital Traction companies, William McR. Clayton, spokesman for the Federation of Citi zens’ Associations, interrupted with this query: ' T, Mr. Ham. do you believe the fare should be increased?” ”1 would prefer not to have to rats* the rate,” the president of the com pany replied. .Whether that is pos sible or not I don’t know. The loss of traffic has been beyond our ex pectations. and if it continues some thing is going to happen. If the commission and the public do not sustain us in trying to operate as economically as possible, I presume an increase in fare will have to be asked for.” Tea More One-Man Corn. The purpose of the hearing is to decide whether the W. R. and E. should be allowed to install 10 more one-man cars, Mr. Clayton followed his first question by asking Mr. Ham if he would suggest additional one man cars In case passenger travel continued to fall off In future. Mr. Ham said he thought the use of one man cars could be further extended in Wasnington. William S. Torbert of the Rhode Island Avenue Citizens’ Association asked Mr. Ham if he considered the use of two-man cars extravagant. The witness replied he did if one man could do the job satisfactorily. This brought from Mr. Torbert the observation that it was wasteful to operate two-man cars for so many years. The president of the Washington Railway and Klectrlc replied that methods change with passing time. When trainmen’s wages were 25 cents an hour, he said, it was not as necessary to economize In operation as it is now with wages up to 58 cents an hour. All other lines of In dustry have found it necessary to seek labor-saving methods to meet increased costs of doing business, he added. After reciting the facts brought out at previous one-man car hearings, Mr. Ham declared the main objection was the crowding of passengers near the front door because of the necessity of boarding and leaving the car at the front end. Objection Is Removed. “The company, he said, has de veloped a one-man car with auto matic rear exit to remove that ob jection. and said the ten new cars asked for would have that rear exit. The testimony disclosed that the Washington Railway and Klectrlc is now operating 70 one-man cars. This, Mr. Ham said, results In a saving of 1158,777 a year within the District. If the ten additional cars are au thorized It would bring about a further saving of $23,000 a year. The principal contention of Mr. Ham throughout his testimony was that the steady failing off In street car riding with a consequent reduction in revenue, makes the operation of one-man cars necessary in the In terest of economy. In 1921, the witness testified, the W. R. and K. system carried 78,111,- 740 passengers in the District, as compared with 72.223,000 In the 12 months ended August 31 last, a fall ing oft of passengers In the three-year period. The W. R. and E. earned a rate of return of 3.84 per cent on the commission's valuation In the 12 months ended In August, he said. Considering the W. R. and E. and the Capital Traction' earnings to gether, he said, the rate of return for the 12 months ending In August was 6.25 per cent on the combined valuation of the two roads. Questioned by a citizen in the audience as to the reason for the falling off In passengers, Mr. Ham said It was due, first, to the increased .lumber of private automobiles, to vhe establishment of motor bus lines,' the growth of the taxicab business and the fact that Washington has settled back from Its war-time rush of business.

Mr. lo gins today his study of the Eastern and New England Slates.) BY DAVID LAWRENCE. MID-WEST AMERICA. October 15. There Is something hopeful, something buoyant about the spirit of the West today which finds Its reflex in poli tics, of course., but which makes the wayfarer feel the throb of ever-grow. ing confidence that the dark days of depression have passed and that the dawn of a prosperous tomorrow has come. It is not altogether due to the rise in the prices of agricultural products or the favorable crops. It Is due to some extent to a feeling of stability, a feeling that the reconstruction of America's economic life following the war has come to a steady, upward, but assured, pace. There is an air of progress, of things moving, of un rest dispelled, of great opportunity. He would be blind who saw no dis content, no symptoms of political up heaval In the years to come if the West Is left to hear Its own protesting voice as the cry Is raised for a lower tariff or a reduction in freight rates. President Coolidge has achieved a con siderable strength on the farms as well as In the cities of the West, but It would be a mistake for his supporters and advisers to interpret the votes that will be cast in his direction as due entirely to the enthusiasm of approval. It Is, In a sense, a passive acquiescence, a belief In things as they are. In tha maintenance of the status quo, but with it a hope for the future. < Weat la Changing. The West Is changing. Co-operative marketing, diversified farming. Im proved methods of production, better credit facilities, motor transportation all have played their part. The politi cal parties have been torn by local strife and the wounds of the everlast ing controversy between conservatives and radicals. Persons mean more than Issues as a factor In the balloting. President Coolldge’s strength with the voters of the West Is a curious thing. It was the same West which threw Its hat In the air f&t the rip roaring cowboy, the irrepressible T. R. of 1912. And today the West si lently, but just as effectively utters Its favor for the rugged, honest, sim ple, unassuming plain man of the New England hills. John ,W. Davis Is always well spoken of. His speeches are com mended and hla record Is applauded, but the West regards him-as of the same school of thought as President Coolidge on most of the Important Is sues of the day. The emphasis placed on La Follette at the left side of the political scene and Coolidge on the right, has meant a shunting to one side of Davis. Western sentiment which clamored for McAdoo has not accepted Davis as a substitute. This is not the fault of Davis. It is because his record was not that ot McAdoo, who stood for high wages on the railroads, a record of achieve ment In office with respect to agri cultural credits and, generally speak ing, a liberal radical. He would have carried many Western States, but not all ot them. The favorable (Continued on Page 5, Column 3.). RENEWED DEFENSE OF SHANGHAI SEEN Gen.

EXHAUSTIVE PROBE OF CAMPAIGN GIFTS PLEDGEDBY BORAH Inquiry Into La Follette Ac cusation to Begin in Chi cago Tomorrow. MIGHT BE TRANSFERRED TO WASHINGTON LATER Party Managers Asked for State ments and Accounting Details May Be Requested. By the Associated Press. CHICAGO, October 15. Prepara tions for "an exhaustive inquiry into campaign contributions and expendi tures” were made today by Senator Borah of Idaho, chairman of the Sen ate committee on campaign expendi tures. Senator Borah, called from a cam paign tour in the West by the charges of Senator La Follette, in dependent presidential candidate, that improper and unwarranted use of money had become a factor in the campaign Ip certain States, said upon his arrivel here that "every line of inquiry will be followed to the end that as far as possible the source of all campaign funds may be revealed.” May Begin Tomorrow. Senator Borah, who expected to confer lirst with his colleagues on the committee, hoped to begin formal hearings tomorrow morning. Chair men of the national committees of the Republican and Democratic par ties and John M, Nelson, national di rector of the La Follette campaign, have been requested to submit formal detailed reports for the examination of the committee. These reports, Senator Borah ex pected, would be accompanied by statements from the campaign man agers. After an examination of such reports and statements as may be submitted the committee will deter mine the future scope of the inquiry, probably basing its determination upon leads suggested by the reports. How far the investigation might go or how long it might last "Senator Borah was unable to predict. Exhaustive In Detail. "The committee will examine every legitimate lead presented by spokes men for any of the candidates, and our inquiry will be exhaustive in every detail,” Senator Borah said. , “We shall ask each party organiza- JUon to report how much they have from whoni, and how it has silent. Our reports will not deal with lump totals, bat with de tailed contributions and expenditure. In the first instance, our examina tion will be merely of the reports sub mitted in response to our requests, but if these reports suggest further inquiry of any Items, we may request the accounting books of the campaign headquarters.” May Conte To Capital. Touching upon the La Follette charges. Senator Borah - said that if any evidence were offered by the La Follette forces it would be received by the committee at some convenient place probably In the East. Should witnesses be available in Chicago, however, the entire inquiry will be prosecuted here, but if it develops as Senator Borah anticipated, that witnesses for Senator La Follette are from Eastern States, the investiga tion will be transferred to Washing ton.

The finishing touches were being put on the report In Mr. Nelson’s office today, and he expected to submit it personally to the committee. Frank P. Walsh, altorney_ desig nated by Senator La Follette ‘to rep resent him before the committee, probably will submit a formal state ment with Mr. Nelson's report. At Democratic Western headquar ters it was stated that the entire matter of appearing before the com mittee was in the hands of National Chairman Shaver, who was expected to arrive from Washington within a few days.
