POLICE AND PUBLIC PRAISED FOR ORDER Elaborate Plans Are Made to Handle Traffic and Crowds Today. The Police Department last night shared honor* with the public of Washington and the 75,000 or more visitors for orderliness displayed dur ing one of the greatest demonstrations in the history of Washington yester day. Words from high officials came in last night according honor to the method whereby the police had per fected arrangements for handling a crowd running into the hundreds of thousands, and paying tribute also to the law-abiding qualities of the peo ple who lined the route of march, gathered in the Monument Grounds •nd swirled about the temporary presidential mansion at Dupont Circle. John Hays Hammond, general chair man of the committee in charge, per sonally telephoned to MaJ. E. B. Hesse, superintendent of police, his congratulations on the order preserved throughout the whole line of march. There was not a single break of crowds beyond bounds. Mr. Ham mond, it was said, mentioned in his communication to Maj. Hesse that Lindbergh, had commented warmly upon the efficiency and orderliness of the arrangements during his ride down Pennsylvania avenue. Rockenbarh Sends Praise. Gen. S. D. Rockenbach, commander of the District of Washington, of the United States Army, also communi cated a warm message of congraula tion to Maj. Hesse on the clockwork precision which marked the arrange ments for the parade and the general celebration. Maj. Hesse himself last night passed the honors to the general public and to his assistants, Asst. Supt. of Police Charles A. Evans and In spector William S. Shelby, who plan ned and charted the course of the pa rade, and went into technical and minute detail regarding the system for handling the crowds and traffic. The events regarded as virtually certain for the schedule of Col. Lind bergh today are the visit to Arlington National Cemetery and the Flag day exercises at the United States Capitol, with a visit to Walter Reed Hospital as a probability. Elaborate arrangements were made by police for the Flag day exercises at the west front of the Capitol. More than 100 policemen, divided Into four groups under captains, will be in charge of the crowds on the approaches to the Capitol. One group will be under Capt. Martin Reilly of the sixth precinct, at the station for section 1, which extends from First and B streets northwest to First and B streets southwest; another group under Capt. C. L. Plemmons of the twelfth precinct being assigned to sta tion 2, extending from First and B streets southeast to First and B streets southwest; the third group, under Capt. William E. Sanford of the fifth precinct, being assigned to station 3, extending from First and B streets southeast to First and B streets north east, and the last group, under Capt. C. T. Peck, being assigned to station 4, on B street from First street north east and First street northwest. » Inspector Headley in Charge. Inspector A. J. Headley will have general supervision of the details. He will place men at each entrance to the Capitol grounds and post police men for a block back at each entry. These police guards will inspect the passes and identification cards of per sons entering the grounds for the ee remonies. Parking of vehicles Is to be re stricted tomorrow on First street from B street northwest to B street southwest on B street from First street northeast to B street northwest; on First street, from B street northeast to B street southeast and on B street from First street southeast to First Street southwest. The period of the restriction will start at 1 o’clock this afternoon and end after the cere monies. Police have been instructed to keep all vehicular traffic moving from the Capitol Grounds along Delaware ave nue and B street northeast; New Jer sey and B street southeast and East Capitol street. The exercises will start •t 4:30 o'clock. Previous to this, it is expected the itinerary of Col. Lindbergh will result in crowds thronging to Arlington Cemetery, for which point he is ex pected to start about 1:30 o’clock this afternoon. His route, as charted by the police, will be east on Massachusetts avenue to Eighteenth street, thence south to Virginia avenue and east on Virginia avenue and B street to Seventeenth street; then south and around the Tidal Barin to Fourteenth street, southward again and across the high way Bridge to Military road, thence west along Military road to the south gate of the cemetery. Highway Bridge Plans. - Mindful of past traffic jams at the Highway Bridge, positive instructions were issued for a strong detail on Fourteenth street from B street south west, to the south end of the High way Bridge. “Whenever any suggestion of traf fic congestion becomes apparent,” the order reads, "Capt. Bremmerman of the fourth precinct, in command, will order all traffic diverted away from Fourteenth street, so as to re lieve congestion on approaches to the Highway Bridge and on the bridge, and will permit no interference with or delay of the party and escort.” Capt. Collins of the seventh pre cinct is instructed to employ strong details on Key Bridge and its ap proaches, greatly similar to the ar rangements at the Highway Bridge. The arrangement of traffic on M street is left discretionary with him. Conditional orders were issued for special details in event that plans were changed overnight. LINDBERGH DUE TO HOP TO ST. LOUIS ON FRIDAY Secretary of War Davis Will Go to Missouri City for Three- Day Celebration. Secretary of War Davis understands that Lindbergh will fly front New York to St. Louis Friday in his plane, the Spirit of St. Louis. Secretary Davis will go to St. Louis to participate in the three-day cele bration for the flyer and will confer upon him there on Sunday a comntis j»ion as colonel in both th A.nty Air Reserve and the Missouri National Guard.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., June 11 C^).—Robert Otto, colonel on the per sonal staff of Gov. Sam A. Baker, and Adjt. Gen. A. V. Adams left at noon today for New York to tender Missouri's official welcome to Col. Charles A. Lindbergh. At St. Louis they will be joined by Brig. Gen. William R. Rapp of Pierce City, Mo., commander of the National Guard, . T - .-\ . I The President’s Speech and Lindbergh’s Reply THE PRESIDENT: , My Fellow Countrymen : It was in America that the modern art of flying of heavicr-than air machines was first developed. As the experiments became suc cessful, the airplane was developed to practical purposes. It has been adapted to commerce in the transportation of passengers and mail and used for national defense by our land and sea forces. Beginning with a limited flying radius, its length has been gradually extended. We have made many flying records. Our Army flyers have circum navigated the globe. One of our Navy men started from California and flew far enough to have reached Hawaii, but, being off his course, landed in the water. Another officer of the Navy has flown to the North Pole. Our own country has been traversed from shore to shore in a single flight. It has been apparent for some time that the next great feat in the air would be a continuous flight from the mainland of America to the mainland of Europe. Two courageous Frenchmen made the reverse attempt and passed to a fate that is as vet un known. Others were speeding their preparations to make the trial, but it remained for an unknown youth to tempt the elements and win. It is the same story of valor and victory by a son of the people that shines through every page of American history. Twenty-five years ago there was horn ii Little Falls, Minn., a hoy, representing the best traditions of this country, of a stock known for its deeds of adventure and exploration. His father, moved with a desire for public service, was a member of Congress for several terms. His mother, who dowered her son with her own modesty and charm, is with us today. Engaged in the vital pro fession of school teaching, she has permitted neither money nor fame to interfere with her fidelity to her duties. Too young to have enlisted in the World War, her son became a student at one of the big State universities. His interest in aviation led him to an Army aviation school, and in 1925 he was graduated as an airplane l n/r n November, 1926, he had reached the rank of captain in the Officers Reserve Corps. Making his home in St. Louis, he had joined the 110th Observa tion Squadron of the Missouri National Guard. Some of his qualities noted by the Army officers who examined him for promo tion- as shown by reports in the files of the Militia Bureau of the War Department are as follows: “Intelligent,” “industrious,” “ener getic," “dependable," “purposeful.” “alert,” “quick of reaction ” serious/ ’•deliberate,” “stable,” “efficient,” “frank,” “modest,” “con genial.” “a man of good moral habits and regular in all his busi ness transactions.” One of the officers expressed his belief that the young man “would successfully complete everything he under takes. This reads like a prophecy. Later he became connected with the United States Mail Service where he exhibited marked ability, and from which he is now on leave of absence. On a morning just three weeks ago yesterday this wholesome, earnest, fearless, courageous product of America rose into the air from Long Island in a monoplane christened “The Spirit of St Louis in honor of his home and that of his supporters. It was no adventure. After months of most careful preparation!

As the aviator’s car turned into B street on its way to the Monument grounds Mrs. Alexander W. Burger of St. Petersburg, Fla., darted through the cordon of troops, jumped on the running board of the automo bile and shook hands with him. Then she stepped back quickly into the crowd. Three of Lindbergh’s backers from St. Louis. Harry H. Knight, Harold M. Rixhy and William B. Robertson, were among the first to call upon him at the temporary White House. “We are hardly able to offer Col. Lindbergh any, suggestions, because his ideas are always better than ours,” said Knight on leaving the mansion. “It is not possible to come to any decision on Lindbergh’s future plans until he has arrived at St. Louis, and the situation quiets down.” Knight said that Lindbergh ex pected to carry out his plan of flying from New York to St. Louis. Twenty soldier patients from Mount Alto Hospital were afforded an un usual opportunity to pay tribute to Col. Lindbergh. Supt. George W. Hesse of the Bo tanic Gardens, who had the soldiers as his guests on a reviewing stand, noti fied John Hays Hammand, chairman of the reception committee, of their presence there. When the big White House car bearing the hero, his mother and Mr. Hammond arrived at that point, Mr. Hammond directed the chauffeur to drive over close to the curb so that the soldiers could have a good view of Col. Lindbergh. They gave him a rousing cheer. Half of a ripe watermelon floating *" “*® P ?t° mac lust off the Anaeostia Naval Air Station attracted Lind bergh s attention a* the Memphis came up the river, and caused the aviator to grin and remark to Admiral burrage that this was the first fruit ° * ie had seen this season. * d Jm e T *° k ave a bite of the mate Os that, Lindbergh said, and the ad rnual promised to send him one. A Ford triple-engine plane, lent by the Ford Motor Co., left Washington to pick up the Memphis about an hour below Washington on her trip up the river yesterday, in the plane was a radio broadcast ing apparatus, operated bv C. B. Hempel and Dr. J. H. Dellinger of the Bureau of Standards. Mr. Hempel broadcast descriptions THE SUNDAY STAB. WASHINGTON. D. C., JUNE 12. 1027-PART 1- of the scepe and the way the Memphis looked, surrounded by ships and air planes. Two screened mail wagons, contain ing 50 sacks of air mail letters awaited the flyer at the navy yard.’ The trucks bore signs reading, Lindy’a Mail—Congratulations Sent by Way of Air Mail." The trucks with another one full of telegrams had a place in the parade. The Post Office Department has pre pared a blue morocco leather album containing the first impression of the Lindbergh air mail stamp. The leather-lunged street urchins received the credit for starting the shout, “We Want Lindy!" that grew to such proportions that the Lone Eagle had further to delay an already late lunch with the President to re appear before the crowd. When the clamor of the crowd forced the flyer to make a second ap pearance on the White House balcony all professional .photographers had left and a gray-haired woman with a four-inch camera was the only one to get a picture. "I got a good one that time,” she declared beamingly. A few minutes after Lindbergh had retired one of the White House collies put in an appearance and looked down cautiously at the crowd. The dog re ceived a cheer. The Washington Boys’ Independent Band. 105 strong, claims the honor of being the first band to salute Col. Lindbergh upon his arrival home. The boys on the deck of the steamer "Lindbergh Special,” played the “Star Spangled Banner,” as the Memphis passed them off Alexandria. The crew assembled on the deck and stood at attention, presenting an Im posing sight. Thirty-nine States were represented at the tourist camp in Potomac Park yesterday. Although more than 300 cars bearing approximately 1,200 visi tors were parked in the camp, no ac cidents were reported and the day passed without mishap. Most of the tourists left their cars in camp and set out afoot to join in the tribute to the hero of the air. Col.. Lindbergh tonight received a gift, rushed 1,340 miles by airplane, from his old home town of Little Falls, Minn. It was 10 pounds of but ter, sent by the town a co-operative creamery. The plane which negotiated the trip in 12 hours and 40 minutes Hying time was piloted by J. C. Miller an old friend of Lindbergh. .. __ LINDBERGH GEES MO TELEGRAMS Individuals and Organiza tions in U. S. and Canada Send Greetings Here. Augmenting in a voluminous fash ion the already tremendous welcome which was accorded Col. Lindbergh by the citizens of Washington, thousands of persons of all stations of life throughout the United States and even in far-distant spots in Canada yester day flashed their personal congratula tions to him here by telegraphic com munication. When the day was over, reports by officials of the Western Union and the Postal Telegraph companies showed that the mass of laudatory messages delivered to the flyer came to a total of more than 56,800 separate tele grams. And Mrs. Lindbergh, mother of the Viking uirman, w’as also remembered In no small way, with more than 1,500 messages of appreciation sent directly to her here. Faces Staggering Task. Col. Lindbergh thus is faced with a more staggering task each day as ad ditional telegrams are added to the host of messages already received, many of which he hopes eventually to answer. Many of the telegrams which flooded to meet him here yesterday were from chambers of commerce, clubs and civic organizations asking permission to make "Lindy" an hon orary member of their organizations. While the messages sent via the Postal Telegraph were delivered di rectly to the temporary White House, where Col. Lindbergh and his mother are house guests during their short stay here, the Western Union packed the telegrams they had received for him yesterday morning into a bus and hastened with them to the Navy Yard yesterday noon. Await for Cruiser. When the U. a. 8. Memphis was warped into the dock shortly before 12 o'clock, a representative of the company boarded her to inform Col. Lindbergh of the host of congratula tions that awaited him and his moth er. Ten picked messengers of the company at the moment were wait ing to carry the telegrams to the cruiser. It was decided, however, that the messages should be taken to the tem porary White House and the loaded bus fell in the line of parade then forming, and, with the United States mail trucks, continued with the Lind bergh escort up Pennsylvania ave nue. Actual delivery of the messages was accomplished at the Dupont Cir cle residence where the Lindberghs are guests of President and Mrs. Cool idge. Among the telegrams was one con taining 17,500 signatures from Min neapolis. This huge telegram, which was received here over special direct wires on continuous rolls of paper, was 520 feet long. Contains 2,000 Signatures. Another unusual message, from the Frisco Lines Club, contained 2,000 signatures, and still another, from St. Louis, where Col. Lindbergh is to be feted next Sunday, contained 260 names. "> As has been the case since the first flood of congratulatory messages were filed, the dominant tone of the telegrams was praise for the modesty and good sense of the young flyer in the face of adulation. The religious note was next in evidence in the mes sages, thousands of persons inform ing Lindbergh that they had prayed long and fervently for his safety and success. LINDBERGH LAUDS CAPITAL WELCOME - AS BEST HANDLED (Continued from First Page.) one time as I did this morning at the navy dock. I am going to hop off tomorrow morning for New York in an amphib ian plane. I can’t fly my own plane because they want me to come down in New York harbor. I am sorry I cannot fly back to New York in the same plane I crossed the ocean in. I wanted to fly in my own plane, but it wouldn’t fit in with the commit tee’s plans in New York, so l agreed. I would like everybody to know how much I appreciate the honor of staying at the temporary White House as the guest of the President and Mrs. Coolidge. Everywhere I went in Europe I was the guest of the rep resentatives of the United States, and now that I am home again I have the advantage while In Washington of visiting the President with all the con sideration that the Government can afford. Everybody seems to want to speak to me and shake my hand. While that is very pleasant and I’d like to be able to oblige them, I am only a human being, after all, and I’m afraid I would end up in a hospital, suffering from an overdose of kindness. I have received literally thousands of messages and letters since I came here. I don’t know when I am going to be able to answer all these or how ln the world I am ever going to fie able to do it. But I want every one to know that they have my thanks for their kindness. They told me that some of my old buddies in the air mail service were here today to welcome me. I wish I could have seen them all personally. There are no finer fellows in the w-orld than the air mail pilots and there are no better flyers anywhere. They do their work quietly every day and every night, too, and sometimes I wonder if the public knows the won derful work they are doing all the time. I was invited to have dinner tonight at the temporary White House with the members of the President's cab inet. It was wonderful to be there. Afterwards, I went to the reception the Minnesota Society gave me. J was pretty tired by the time I got there but the way the people received me made me feel fine again. After the Minnesota reception I went to the reception given by the National Press Club at the Washington Auditorium and it was certainly good to see peo ple from my home State. I look forward to my visit this aft ernoon to the Tomh of the Unknown Soldier, who is the greatest hero of the United States. If there is anything I can do to honor his memory I want to do It. I am anxious, too, to visit the wounded veterans of the World War at Walter Reed Hospital, I wap too young myself to be in the war and I honor the men who were.

TRIES TO GIRDLeIaRTH, Radio Station Attempts Feat With Short Wavs. SCHENECTADY. N. Y., June 11 (A s ).—ln addition to broadcasting the tumultuous reception in Washington of Charles A. Lindbergh for the bene, fit of American listeners-in, the Gen eral Electric Co.’s radio station here attempted today to girdle the earth with a short-wuve transmitter. The entire reception program wap broadcast by the General Electric ex perimental transmitter 2XAD, operat ing oh a wave length o t 22.10 meters. CONTINUOUS OVATION GIVEN TO LINDBERGH BY 250,000 HERE (Continued from First Page.) ahead. There was a continual smile on his face. Occasionally he would wave his hand at the crowd. Lindbergh was dressed in a blue serge suit—the same in which he had attended the reception by King George in Buckingham Palace. His face was bronzed by his week at sea. To the spectators he seemed even more youth ful and slender than he really is— a boy in every sense of the word. He appeared to flush slightly under hie coat of tan when tho President pinned the cross on his lapel and the deafen ing roar arose from the waves of hu manity which billowed over the slopes of the Mounment knoll. Joined by Military Escort. As he came up from the Navy Yard his car was joined by a military es cort at the foot of Capitol Hill. This was stretched out from the Peace Monument to the Treasury. Each con tingent of infantry, artillery, engi neers, sailors, Marines and the Dis trict of Columbia National Guard, had Its own band. The measured march of the troops slowed down the speed and more than 40 minutes was re quired to cover the 18 blocks. Arrising at the Monument Grounds with his cavalry escort around his automobile, Col. Lindbergh found the President awaiting him with Mrs. Coolidge, and several members of the cabinet and their wives. When the slim youth appeared over the top of the stand ns he briskly climbed the steps the crowd broke into a roar which continued during the introduc tion and for several minutes after ward. Mr. Coolidge was obliged to halt several times In his address by re newed cheering. A reference to Mrs. Lindbergh brought a wild demonstra tion, with waving of hats and hand kerchiefs. The President bowed to her and requested that she stand. She bowed several times to the crowd. At the conclusion of Mr. Coolidge’s address the flyer arose amid deafening cheers. Secretary of War Davis handed the cross—the first ever awarded —to the President, who lifted it from its plush-lined box and pinned it to the left lapel of Lindbergh’s coat just below the red ribbon of the French Legion of Honor. Crowds Are Insistent. There were more cheers, which sub sided quickly as the flyer stepped to the microphone for his brief message of international good-will. Then the Army Band struck up a lively air. The President and Mrs. Coolidge and their distinguished guests moved quickly from the plat form to their waiting cars for the drive to the temporary White House. A good part of the crowd followed them. The constant calls from the multitude at Dupont Circle finally brought Col. Lindbergh out on the balcony with Mr. Coolidge. The crowd roared as the President raised the flyer’s hand. After he had re sponded several times to cheering Lindbergh asked not to be disturbed again for two hours, as he was fatigued after the ceremony, wished an opportunity to talk to his mother in private, and felt the need of rest before the cabinet dinner and the Min nesota Society and National Press Club receptions last night. Aerial Features Spectacular. Because Lindbergh’s great achieve ment was aeronautical and is expected to have a tremendous Influence in pro moting transatlantic air commerce, and because the science of aeronautics is especially dear to him and he pro poses to make it his life work, the aviation features of his home-coming were spectacular and significant. Not only were there in the sky as a can opy over the Memphis as she steamed up Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River the largest number of aircraft of every description ever seen in this part of the world, but the heroes of aviation and those who have the most notable records in flying were invited here to pay particular honor to the transatlantic air pioneer. In the speclaj roped-off section on the President’s quay at the Navy Yard, where the Memphis docked, were massed the flying men now or formerly ip the Federal service, whether with the Army, Navy, Post Office, Commerce Department, Marine Corps or Coast Guard- Up through Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River to the Washington Navy Yard a veritable water carpival celebrated the coming of Lindbergh. From the time the fast naval flagship cruiser Memphis, which brought the returning conqueror from Cherbourg to the homeland, passed Cape Henry, black with people, at 4 o’clock yester day afternoon, the shore was" lined with crowds and big bonfires signaled the progress of the cruiser. Pleasure craft of every description literally swarmed the river, among tho most conspicuous serenaders being Col. William Mitchell, former assistant chief of the Army Air Service, with a band from Vincent B. Costello Post of the American Legion, of which he is commander. Replies to All Greetings. The official escort squadron of eight Coast Guard patrol boats led the Mem phis in from below Mount Vernon. Comdr. Chester A. Jones on the cutter Apache, off Haines Point, was in com mand of the policing of the river and Lieut. Comdr. L. C. Mueller, com manded the escort squadron. To every greeting, from the largest crowds on the shore and from the smallest craft anchored In the stream, Col. Lindbergh waved his hand in recognition. In six outstanding settings, Wash ington and its neighbors had a chance to hail the returning flyer through all of a 12-hour stretch. First, as he Stood on the bridge of the Memphis and graciously, hut with becoming dignity, saluted in response to the plaudits of enthusiasts on boats along the shore, then at the navy yard and while he was being escorted from the Memphis to join the big military parade in his honor. One of the most humandnterest incidents of his home coming was whan his mother, Mrs, Evangeline Lindbergh, was taken on board the Memphis as soon as she docked to be the first to clasp to her bosorp her boy who had Just Jumped into world fame. Crowd Shouts Itself Hoarse. The crowd again had an opportunity to cheer Itself hoarse as Lindbergh's escort of the President’s Own Troop from Fort Myer. followed hy the offi cial reoeptton committee of cabinet Lindbergh The Most Popular Man in This Country Pittsburg Automatic Gas Water Heater 9 The Most Popular Water Heaters in This Country I BOTH WINNERS! j Edgar Morris Sales Co. Factory Distributors members, District Commissioners. Federal officials, leading cltisens and guests of honor, proceeded from tha navy yard, through the Capitol grounds and down Penneylvania ave nue to the official reception by the President on the Washington Monu ment grounds. The third stage of Lindbergh’s greeting was when President Cool idge, in behalf of all the 120,000,000 citixens of the United States, com mended the youth for having brought back his wonderful achievement, un sullied by commercialism and him self unspoiled. The President publicly proclaimed him a colonel in the U. S. Reserve and bestowed the Distinguish ed Flying Cross, the highest honor for aviation in the gift of the Govern ment, as symbol of appreciation for what Lindbergh is. Mrs. Lindbergh shared honors with her modest son at this ceremony when the President paid a direct compli ment to her while lauding Lindbergh the boy, as “representing the best traditions of this country of a stock known for its deeds of adventure and exploration.” Turning graciously to ward Mrs. Lindbergh, who sat at his right, between Mrs. Coolldge and Postmaster General New, the Presi dent said: “His mother, who dowered her son with her own modesty and charm, is with us today. Engaged in the vital profession of school teaching, she has permitted neither money nor fame to interfere with her fidelity to her duties." The many thousand persons congre gated on the Monument Grounds cheered lustily and Mrs. Coolidge led ihe applause in the President’s stand ,md sprang to her feet, drawing Mrs. Lindbergh up beside her so that the throng would have an opportunity to see the proud mother, who graciously bowed in acknowledgment. None more heartily applauded the Presi dent's tribute than young Lindbergh, who seemed to be especially pleased at an opportunity to divert attention from himself. Homing Pigeon Released. A picturesque feature of the exer cises in the Monument Grounds was the releasing of 48 homing pigeons, one from each of the States, Just as Lindbergh was presented and started to make his response to the Presi dent’s address. These birds soared from directly beneath the surprised young orator about to make his first speech to his fellow countrymen and flew off to every point of the compass, carrying to each State in the Union a message from Washington that this pride of the American people, the latest entrant in the list of fame, had been signally honored by the Chief Executive on his return to the land of his birth. The fourth opportunity that the en thusiastic populace had of seeing and cheering the unassuming youth was when the vast throng gathered in front of the temporary White House, 15 Dupont circle, and by their insist ence and frequent calls of "We want to see you, Lindbergh,” forced him to present himself several times during the late afternoon, as he had so fre quently done while a guest of Ambas sador Herrick at the embassy In Paris to satisfy the volatile populace of Paris. This impromptu reception was one of especial interest to the crowds which had lined the streets for hours. Following a cabinet dinner, the pub lic had another opportunity last night at 8:30 o’clock, when thousands of those eager to see Lindbergh close up and speak to him, stormed the Willard Hotel when he was escorted there by John Hays Hammond, chairman of the executive committee in charge of the national ceremonies, for the recep tion by the home folks from Minne sota. Here, Lindbergh, carried away by the spirit of the occasion and by the presence of boyhood friends, shook hands with hundreds until he was dis suaded by an official of the State De partment. Secretary of Btate Kellogg, who for more than a half a century has been an honored resident of Min nesota and who served in Congress with Lindbergh’s father, delivered an address of welcome, expressing the sentiments and admiration of the old home folks. Guest of Press Club. The biggest and semi-intimate for mal reception in Lindbergh's honor was that of the National Press Club in the Washington Auditorium, which was really the official reception for Government officials, social leaders and those prominent in all branches of Capital life. The National Press Club and the official reception committee worked in close co-operation in arrang ing the program for this important social affair. Here, Secretary of State Kellogg formally presented a portfolio contain ing all of the official radiograms and cablegrams from the nations of the earth congratulating the United States Government on Lindbergh’s exploit. Postmaster General New presented Lindbergh with the first print of the new air mall stamp which is being struck off in commemoration of his epochal flight. Louis Ludlow r , presi dent of the Press Club, delivered an address of welcome and Richard Oulu han, dean of the Washington corre spondents, presented the guest of honor with a parchment scroll ex pressing the opinion of more than 3,000 writers of history regarding Lindbergh’s feat. Although unaccustomed to public speaking until three weeks ago, when he made his maiden spaech on Le Bourget flying field when he had gracefully glided his monoplane to earth at the end of his 3,610-mile non stop air flight from New York, saying “I am Charles Lindbergh,’* the young hero oi the air makes a very impres sive speech, as is testified by those who heard the three public speeches he made here yesterday. One of these was in response to the President at the Washington Monument reception aw" the other two at the Minnesota State and National Press Club recep tions —all three of which were broad cast to the people everywhere through out this country and as far overseas as the radio waves might carry. Fireworks Display at Night. Lindbergh’s fajne was written in lurid lights against the sky and his lone-eagle flight across the Atlantic visualised in a fireworks display last night that rivaled anything of the sort ever staged on this continent accord ing to experts in pyrotechnical pro grams. Special set features were de signed for the occasion, many of them carrying slogans of praise for the boy who pioneered the air way to Europe. The most picturesque w*« was one showing the Statue of Liberty and the Eifel tower with Lindbergh’s beloved plane, the “Spirit of St. Louis,” which he always speaks of as “we,” making the flight between the two while a beautiful tableau lighted up the Mon ument Grounds. Extensive day and night programs of fireworks attracted thousands to the Monument Grounds, while they were visible also from all over the Dis trict. Other thousands crowded on the highlands about the Capital to view the spectacle from afar. Salvos of bombs added to the cheers of the crowd at the close of the of ficial reception on the Monument Grounds, each bomb as It burst dis playing small flags and eagles which floated over the crowd and which were eagerly sought as souvenirs. Tells President of Flight. In two extended conversations Col. Lindbergh had with President and Mrs. Coolldge In the temporary White House yesterday afternoon the young aviator devoted most of his discus sion to a description of his reception abroad. While both the President and Mrs. Coolldge inquired eagerly about his experiences In flying over the ocean, Lindbergh Invariably reverted from this story to tell of his welcome in the European countries, particularly in France, where he first landed. Again and again he emphasized to the President, who listened attentive ly how France, England and Belgium, the countries he visited, felt toward the United States. He described this feeling as “warm and cordial. Indeed.” Immediately after luncheon the President spent half an hour in con versation with Col. Lindbergh and again when he returned from the White House executive office later in the afternoon he called for him. This time Mr. and Mrs. Coolldge spent an hour with Lindbergh and his mother.

NEW YORK, June 11.—'Whik Washington was welcoming Charles A. Lindbergh back to his homeland today, New York was -ompleting Its plans to give th' greatest greeting in its history to the young flyer whose fame ’« still measured by but one leaf of a monthly calendar. It was Just one month ago today that newspapers carried dispatches from St. Louis telling of a young air mail pilot who had flown in one hop from San Diego, who intended to fly to New York the next day, and who then thought he would Jump across x the Atlantic. V The popular reaction was a sort of Jocose surprise. “Who is this fel low Lindbergh?’ was the common question. "Never heard of him be fore.” Considered as Joke. And w'th Richard Byrd, whom all the world knew for his flight across the North Pole, and Clarence Cham berlin. who had recently broken the world duration flight record, already preparing for a transatlantic flight, 1 the plans of this young fellow from the West were taken none too se- *t riously But that was a month ago. Today not a person in the civilized world but, knows who Lindbergh is, what he lias done, what he looks like; not one but would cherish the honor of grasping his hand or even of watching him go by along his path of glory. So great is this desire to see if not actually to touch the hero of the day that 8.000 police will guard the line of march on Monday, 3,500 more than It has ever before been thought nec essary to utilize. And the police will be augmented by soldiers and sailors placed about the flyer so elossly that It is hoped they may hold back the crowds of enthusiastic ad mirers. Not only will there he 8,000 police, but by a system of “subway dodging.” these 8.000 will be enabled to do the work of more than twice that num- . her. It was learned today that as \ the procession from the Battery to City Hall and then to Central Park progresses, the policemen left behind along the route will be rushed for ward by special subway trains so that th#y may augment their comrades up ahead. March Up Broadway. Lindbergh is expected to alight in the amphibian plana In which he is to fly from Washington at 10 o’clock In the morning at quarantine. There he will be picked up by the city tug Macom and brought to the Battery. Thence the procession will wind up Broadway through the narrow can -1 von of the financial district to City Hall, where Mayor Walker and other officials will greet the fl er. In the afternoon Gov. Smith will . 1 welcome him In Central Park, after a * procession up Fifth avenue, and add ( -mother medal to the collection which * has become so numerous, i In the evening Lindbergh and his mother will be guests of honor at a i small reception at the Long Island i home of Clarence Mackay, not many k m il*s from the flying field whence he ' 5,? w t° ,ame over the Atlantic wastes. I The Lindberghs will spend the night at the Mackay home. New York’s celebration will th j n . continue for four days more. 111 - • ■' FOUR ENGAGEMENTS ON FLYER’S PROGRAM TODAY AND TONIGHT t (Continued from First Pape.) Francis Scott Key Bridge.
