FLYER THRILLED SEEING OLD HOME AND SCHOOL Dignity of Washington Reception Endears City to Him—Won’t Forget Monument Scene. BY CHARLES A. LINDBERGH. The Washington reception was wonderful. It was dignified, but it certainly made me feel right at home, and I’m genuinely glad to be back. I said in Europe that I would like to stay a little longer and fly to various countries and study aviation, but now that I have reached home I'm awfully glad I didn’t stay any longer. r After all lam back among my own people. Paris was marvelous and London anil Brussels as well, and 1 wouldn't for the world draw any com parisons, but 1 will say this, the Washington reception was the best handled of all. The police and troops had perfect control all the time from the moment I stepped ashore at the Washington Navy Yard until I en tered the temporary White House on Dupont circle. . I shall never forget as long as I live the scene at the Monument. Thousands of people greeted us. It did me good to see all the children; in fact, the children were the first on the job in Washington. Just as I was about to go to sleep on the Memphis at Piney Point last night, a large mo tor boat full of boy 6 and girls suc ceeded by some means or other in locating my cabin. Good to Be Back In Capital. They surely serenaded me with all the pep they could summon. I en joyed it until it seemed it was going to keep up all night, so I stuck my head out of the cabin and told them it was the wrong boat. But that did not discourage them. They knew well enough I was on the Memphis. Eventually they departsdfUnging and cheering. "*■* You know it was 11 years since 1 had been in Washington. It feels good to see it again. I recognized a lot of familiar places immediately. I was particularly pleased to pass ray old school and the apartment house where I lived as a boy and where 1 used to look up at the big Capitol just across the park. The reception on the Potomac River was just as wonderful in many ways eg was as I drove through the streets of Washington. Os course, one of the greatest thrills I had was ineet ing the President and Mrs. Coolidge, and being able to tell them later, at the temporary White House, the ' story of my flight and the reception in Europe. . The airmen who came out to w el come the Memphis did some of the prettiest flying I ever saw in my life. It gave me a real thrill to see these flyers doing everything that the greatest flyers in Europe were doing end doing it equally as well. Both the Army and Navy planes were out at 6 o’clock this morning. They came zooming down over the deck and I got up half an hour later to go on deck to see them. Many Planes in Air. There must have been 50 planes in the air by the time we reached Hams Point. The guns at the Army War College were booming out their salute bv this time and we were responding. Ail along the Potomac the banks were lined with people and I had a busy time waving to all of them. I was glad to see the Marines stand ing on the docks at Quantico and I save them a wave of my hand as I looked at them through a pair of gl As I stood on the bridge with Vice Admiral Burrage, commander of tne American naval forces in European waters, who returned on the Mem phis, and watched all the wonderful aviators. I felt exactly like a man who had been fed on bread an * for a week and then had a banquet set before him. It certainly vvould have been fine to have been up there with them. T , . Just as soon as I can. I want to get up there with them. I can hardly wait to start flying again, and am anxious for the time to come when my plane will be unpacked^ As we neared the Navy dock, I had a fine view of the Mayflower, the President’s white yacht, which was anchored very near the spot where we landed. There was a very enthusiastic crowd of people on board. First Glimpse of Mother. The gangplank was just about to be put aboard the Memphis when I caught a glimpse of my mother —the first time I had seen her since she left me just before I hopped off from New York three weeks ago. Away was made through the crowd immediately for the car she drove up in and in a few minutes the gangplank was in place and Admiral Burrage escorted her on board. My mother and I went into the ad miral’s cabin, where we were alone for a few minutes. Just afterward the admiral and his staff came into the cabin, where they were presented to my mother. She thought I looked fine and fit. I told her I had a very good trip coming across on the Mem phis. Then we parted and I went out to meet Secretary Wilbur, Secretary Davis of the War Department, and Postmaster General New, whom I was particularly glad to see, because I am still in the Air Mail Service. Understand, now. I have never left Ihe Air Mail Service. I am just on lave. Then we left the ship and got Ififo tbe automobile to go out of the yard. Just before the autoifiebile drove away the crowd and the news paper photographers yelled to me. to stand up and I stood up in the auto mobile.

FROM DINNER BY INSISTENT THRONGS White House Affair Inter rupted 10 Times by Cheer ing Thousands. FLYER WHISKED AWAY TO TWO RECEPTIONS Feted by Press Club and Minne sota State Society—Langley Medal Presented. Hatless, and without a topcoat. Col. Lindbergh was whisked about Wash ington last night from a White House dinner to a reception and then to an other reception. He rode in a big White House tour ing car, its top down, with his mother beside him. a flimsy scarf around her shoulders. The evening's festivities started with the cabinet dinner at the tem porary White House, which was at tended by members of the President’s official family and their wives. Throughout the dinner Dupont Circle was filled with a cheering throng and Col. Lindbergh came out on the bal cony at least ten times. Twice he was accompanied by President Coolidge and twice by his mother. From this dinner he was whisked to the Willard Hotel, where the Min nesota Society held a reception in his honor. The feature of this event was a speech by Secretary of State Kel logg expressing the pride of Minne sota in so distinguished a son. Appears as Speaker. The concluding event on Col. Lind bergh's evening program was the re ception by the National Press Club at the Washington Auditorium, attended by about 5,000 persons. Here he ap peared in a new role in which he con ducted himself very creditably—that of a speaker. Starting in a light veil*, he grew serious as he spoke on the future of aviation. At this reception he received the Smithsonian Institu tion’s Langley Medal for aviation. The state dinner at la Dupont Cir cle had been planned arrtg’tmfty try-fit* President and Mrs. Coolidge to be as simple and informal as possible. It was enlivened by the great throng of oeople on the streets outside. Throughout the meal, loud and en thusiastic cheers were heard. Most of these outbursts were followed with calls such as “We want Lindy,” “Three cheers for Lindy.” “Come on out, Lindy,” and various others. Occasionally the crowd turned to song. “America” was sung several times, as was “Onward, Christian Soldiers.” In the crowd, at different points, there were groups of young college students, who gave their col lege yells with a long, loud “Lindy” at the end. The cheering and calling and sing ing was easily heard within and was commented upon frequently by the President and his guests, all of whom enjoyed it immensely. Appears Frequently on Balcony. Nearly a dozen times during the afternoon and immediately before the dinner. Col. Lindbergh stepped out upon the little iron balcony on the second floor of the residence to give the thousands outside an opportunity to see him. Each time he bowed and waved his long right arm in acknowl-' ment of the acclaim. On two such occasions he was led to the balcony by the President himself, who from all appearances very willingly as signed himself to 'back seat the moment his hero, guest arrived at the temporary White House. On one of Col. Lindbergh's visits to the balcony, he was accompanied by his mother. On two occasions, just in advance of the President and his guests going into the dining hall, Col. Lindbergh yielded to the calls from the outside, and, excusing himself, left his hosts and their guests to bow and wave to the crowd. On these occasions he was attired in evening clothes. The demonstrations in front of the temporary White House were unlike anything of a like nature ever experi enced by White House attaches. Dis cussing them later, these attaches said that they have witnessed all sorts of cheering and yelling crowds about the White House on many occasions, but nothing like this occasion. It was noticed also that with each succeed ing appearance of Col. Lindbergh the majority of those who had been wait ing below for a glimpse moved away, but there appeared to be no thinning in the ranks. Each departing crowd was replaced by a new one. Guest List Small. The dinner in Col. Lindbergh’s honor was no different from the usual run of state dinners given by the President, with the exception that the number of guests on this occasion was smaller. Besides Col. Lindbergh and his mother the only guests were the Secre tary of State and Mrs. Kellogg, the Secretary of the Treasury, the Score (Continued on Page 5, Column 5.)

The barge will be tied up close to shore, but no persons will be allowed to hoard. Lieut. Comdr. Homer C.

COMMONS 10 ACT IN RUSSIAN CRISIS Strained Relations to Be Dis cussed in Parliament—Rus sia Sees Class War. By the Associated Pres*. LONDON, June 12 (Sunday).— The strained relations between Great Britain and Russia owing to a sequence of events, starting with the Anglo-Russian diplomatic breajr followed by the assassination of/fhe Soviet envoy at Warsaw, M. Vfrtkoff, and reaching its climax in a new' reign of terror at MqjhJW, will be the subject of a parliamentary dis cussion soon afMfr the House of Commons tomorrow. British political circles are deeply stirred the Moscow executions and iri the political clubs and week end gatherings of all kinds where in ternational affairs are discussed, the subject of Russia is again on every body’s lips. Reports and Rumors Rife. The Sunday Express’ diplomatic correspondent says that Europe is full of reports and rumors, alleging mobilization by Russia of all reserv ists to the age of 36 years, but neither British nor foreign diplo matic circles are inclined to attach credence to these alarmist stories. New’ revelations of the conditions under which the British diplomatic mission at Moscow attempted to carry on relations with the Soviet government were made in an inter view by Sir Robert Hodgson, late British charge d’affaires at Moscow. ■ He added his voice to the British ■ government’s denials of the Soviet 1 charges that the British mission was ; engaged in espionage in Russia. Sir Robert declared that the Soviet , government state political depart s ment employs “most abominable . measures of compulsion” to induce . Russians to act as their agents. One . such case he instanced was that of Louise Koch, a maid servant em- T ployed by the British mission, who, j he alleged, at the commissariat of foreign affairs was threatened with life imprisonment unless she acted as informer on the British charge . and with death if she revealed to . him that she had been approached ! by Soviet officials. Charges Called Ridiculous. 3 It was unnecessary, said the • charge, to deal with grotesquely 2 absurd allegations, such as the alle • gation that Vice Consul Waite was "(Continued on Page 2, Column 7.) parking would be prohibited in that] particular area, and police would keep the traffic moving in order to prevent a jam and give every one an oppor tunity to see the ship at close quar ters. Comdr. Wick said last night the situation of the air station made it impossible for his command to handle a large crowd of automobiles, and therefore the move to place the plane near the point was determined upon and approved by Col. Lindbergh. Lieut. S. W. Callaway, officer of the day at the air station, last night said he had received no word from Col. Lindbergh, directly or indirectly, that the pilot would visit the station tomor row to inspect the work of the me r Mates w4io assembled his plane. WASHINGTON, D.

The peaceful old Potomac, where history often has been written since the early days of the colonies, basked in glory once more yesterday when it formed a brilliant gateway through which that sterling young American, Col. Charles A. Lindbergh, returned to his native soil—and the waiting arms of his mother. New York has its Statue of Liberty to warm the hearts of home-coming Americans. But as this returning conqueror stood on the bridge of the Memphis he beheld across the waters of the Potomac the shrine of the Father of His Country at Mount Ver non, the lofty peak of the Washing ton Monument, the stately dome of the Capitol, and the portals of the Lincoln Memorial. What more could a young Ameri can, approaching the shores of his homeland, ask to stir his heart and make him glad that he brought fame to his country by his history-making flight to Europe? From the time he first was met by destroyers and airplanes off the Capes Friday until he walked down the gang plank at the Washington Navy Yard at noon yesterday. Col. Lindbergh was beholding along the banks of Maryland and Virginia evi (Continued on Page 12, Column 2.)

A few minutes later, nearly 30 sweating, puffing blue jackets, bear ing the 42-foot wing on their shoulders, trudged from the Air Station dock to seaplane hanger No. 2 and put their burden down. The mechanics pitched in, tackling the rudder and elevators first, and soon were on a fair road to success. Os course, there were many wires to join, bolts to fasten, cotter pins to put in place and tubes and fuel lines to put in shape. This took time. But the big delay came in the discovery of a cracked fitting, one of the metal joints that hold the top wing down to the fuselage. Lieut. Henderson would not let this go by, and much time was spent in trying to find away whereby (Continued on Page 8, Column 3J TODAY’S STAR PART ONE—44 PAGES. General News —Local, National and Foreign.

Morning “His Own.” Four engagements, including two tributes to the World War veterans, appeared definitely on Col. Lindbergh’s program for today. At 1:15 p.m. he will leave the tem porary White House to lay a wreath on the Unknown Soldier’s Tomb at the Arlington Cemetery. From there he will visit the wounded war veterans at the Walter Heed Hospital. He then will attend the vesper service of the United States Flag Association at the Capitol at 5:30 p.m., where he will be decorated with the association’s highest award the cross of honor, by former Secretary of State Hughes. Missouri Society Affair. Tonight at 8:30 o’clock Col. Lind bergh will be the guest of the Mis souri State Society at the Washington Hotel. Col. Lindbergh had declined this invitation on account of the rush of engagements, but later reconsider ed and accepted. After breakfast this morning with the President and Mrs. Coolidge and his mother, Col. Lindbergh will have the morning to himself and to spend as he pleases, according to what could be learned last night. Not until 1:15 o’clock in the afternoon will he again give himself over to receiving the adulation which has marked his every step since arriving here yes terday. At first it had been planned that Col. Lindbergh would take a quick trip to the Naval Air Station this morning, where his plane, ‘‘The Spirit of St. Louis,” is being assembled. Whether he would carry out his plan rests entirely with Col. Lindbergh, it was stated last night, and he may not decides himself until he wakes up this morning and examines the program that has been prepared for him. Like wise, his attendance at church with his hosts, the President and Mrs. Coolidge, was entirely problematical. He may decide to accompany them to the Metropolitan Theater on F street, temporarily serving as a meet ing place for the congregation of the President’s church, the First Congre gational. If he attends these services, which begin at 11 o'clock, he probably will occupy a car with his mother, which will follow the President’s car. Visit to Arlington. At 1:15 o’clock this afternoon, how ever, Col. Lindbergh again will be come ‘‘public property.” Accompa nied by John Hays Hammond, chair man of the citizens’ reception commit tee, and escorted by a detail of motor cycle police, with the possibility that a military escort also will be provided, he will leave 15 Dupont circle for his trip to Arlington, where he will lay a wreath on the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and to Walter Reed Hospital, where he will visit the wounded sol diers. The route from 15 Dupont circle to Arlington will be east on Massachu setts avenue to Eighteenth street, south on Eighteenth street to Virginia avenue, east on Virginia avenue to Seventeenth street, south on Seven teenth street to the Tidal Basin and the John Paul Jones statue, east around the Tidal Basin to Fourteenth street, thence across the Highway Bridge and to the south gate at Ar lington on Military road.

CONTINUOUS OVATION GIVEN HERO AS GUEST OF NATION’S CAPITAL President Leads in Paying Honor to Youth Accorded City’s Greatest Welcome. MOTHER SHARES TRIBUTE FROM JUBILANT THRONGS Flyer Appears on Balcony at Temporary White House—Hailed by Crowds at Two Receptions. A tired young soldier tumbled into bed last night under the roof of the President of the United States after a welcome home such as has been accorded few other individuals in the history of the world. Col. Charles Augustus Lindbergh—2s years old, slender, blond and curly-haired—had been clasped to the bosom of an exulting Nation whose heart overflowed with pride in her blue-eved Viking boy. Never before has Old Glory floated over quite such a scene as Washington witnessed at noon yesterday. Frequently enough in the last crowded century there have been triumphal processions and pageants of victory along old Pennsylvania avenue. Presi dents and generals and kings have passed over that historic road amid seas of gold lace and sounding brass, every rooftop alive with cheering throngs. The street has echoed to the weary tramp of victorious legions home from the wars. Sacred, flag-draped cofhns have gone down to the Capitol. Modest Boy Center of Celebration. But there was not much in common betw’een these picturesque scenes ot the past and the event of yesterday. The spirit was dif ferent. The symbolism was different. America was paying her respects to no military hero, no famous statesman, no ruler of men. Ihe object of the celebration was a modest country boy, unheard of a month ago who in 36 tense hours had written his name eternally in the history of his country by an unexampled feat of endurance, skill and courage. AT™!? 6 C J imaX °J the .o a /r S events came on the Washington (Vd fTnHk gr ,°^ n f S at 12 / 4;> U' vhen Presiden t Coolidge pinned on as the h^b? VS m t , the Dlstui S u i s hed Flying Cross, designed * J hc . hg T ;j P° ssi ble honor to an aviator. The actual tribute came to Lindy alone, but in the minds of thousands who wit nessed the ceremony the Nation was paying tribute not only to an individual but to a type of manhood. This modest youth was symbolic of all his heroic predecessors who have carried the flag into cloud and forest and frozen sea. It was a tribute to such souls as those of Clarke, Kane, De Long, Peary and Rogers. ~i uj t he fu was , somethin g even greater than this. The winged Galahad had brought back out of the trackless fogs over the North ..tlantic the Holy Grail of international good fellowship the whole-hearted admiration of the entire human race for an act of unselfish courage. He had given to all men a new pride in manhood and a new contempt for petty fears and bigoted jealousies. That bit of bronze was a tribute to the spirit of dauntless youth. It was a tribute to anxious motherhood. It was a tribute to clean living and clear thinking. It was a tribute to the triumph of youth over death. Crowd of 250,000 Is Jubilant. j _ Washington did itself proud in the welcome it accorded Col. Lindbergh. From start to finish there was no hitch in the progress of this historic event. The crowd of a quarter of a million jubilant men and women, gathered in the Capital from all States of the East and Middle West, was vociferous but perfectly ordered. Last night throngs about the temporary White House at Dupont circle, where he was a guest of the President, shouted insistent demands for his appearance. Again and again he re sponded by appearing on a balcony and later, while the guest of the President and Cabinet at a state dinner, the yells of the im patient crowd for “Lindy,” and the singing of America, led by a policeman, who kept time with his baton, .brought his mother to a second floor window with Mrs. Coolidge while the crowd cheered thunderously. There were three central characters in the drama of the day— Col. Lindbergh, his mother and President Coolidge. It was the latter who expressed feelingly the thoughts of the Nation as he faced the retiring youth on the temporary stand erected under the shadow of the W ashington Monument and greeted hirji as “conqueror of the air and strengthener of the ties that bind us t« our sister nations across the sea.” He described him as “a modest American youth with the naturalness, the poise and the simplicity of true greatness.” Ovation Follows Brief Reply. Lindbergh in reply delivered a simple, brief message to the people of the new world from the people of the old, who had honored him as perhaps no other citizen in all history has been honored in foreign lands. The speech consisted of only a fetv score words. He said: “At every gathering, at every meeting I attended were the same words: ‘You have seen the affection of the people of France and the people of Europe for the people of America demonstrated to you. On your return to your country take back with you this message from France and Europe to the United States of America.’ ” A deafening ovation followed these brief words. But if this applause, or that of the thousands who had greeted him along Pennsylvania avenue, stirred his emotions they were kept under control by those same nerves of steel which had carried him across the sea. Throughout the day he remained the same “Lindy” he had been before leaving New York—quiet, composed and modest. He gave only occasional heed to the crowd, waving his hand and smiling now and then. Left Alone With Mother. The day was full of dramatic incidents. The U. S. S. Memphis, with Col. Lindbergh on board, came slowly up the Potomac yester day morning, attended by airplanes, cruisers and many small boats which hindered its progress. Enthusiastic crowds, waving flags, lined the shores. At 11:50 the cruiser docked at the Washington Navy \ard and the hero’s mother, Mrs. Evangeline Lodge Lind* bergh, was escorted to him below decks. They were left alone foj a fqw minutes of the sort of confidences that would past between such a mother and such a son. Then Col. Lindbergh and his mother entered a White floust automobile and proceeded through dense, shouting crowds which lined the ropes all the way from the Navy Yard gate to the Moun* ment Grounds. During most of the ride he lounged in the baci seat ot the car, talking with his mother or lpoking straight (Continued on Page 4, Column S.) FIVE CENTS.
