I MAIL DELIVERY
Method for Tossing Sacks
From Planes to Be Subject
By the Associated Press
The tossing off of sacks of mail at the
various cities along the air mail routes
from ’airplanes while in flight is thr
next step of development proposed for
Representative Kelly. Republican.
Pennsylvania, said today that he has
prepared for introduction at the regular
December session of the new Congress ]
a measure which would provide for such
n practice. In his opinion the distribu
tion of mail from the flying planes
would not only increase the speed of
delivery of the postal matter, but would
greatly stimulate the use of the air
Representative Kelly's Plan.
.In his bill Mr. Kelly, sponsor of most
of the legislation that has created and
developed the air mail, proposes the
placing of a mail clerk on the plane to
perform this duty. The clerk would
distribute the mail for the different
cities and towns along the line of flight
into bags so that they could be tossed
off the plane as it passed over the place, j
The Post Office Department. Mr.
Kelly declared, is perfecting a device to !
handle (he dropped mail bag. It would
consist of a tall steel pole on the top ,
of which would be a hook to catch the
sack, with a net a few feet below to
catch it if the hook should be missed.
Another method of speeding up the
air mail—devices to permit the pick
ing up of mail bags by a flying plane—
is being studied by the aviation com
panies. Mr. Kelly said.
Held Great Aid to Service.
“With such devices the air mail would
become not only self-sustaining.” Mr. j
Kelly declared, "but the carrying of
mail by planes would be greatly incrcas- i
ed and the services would be very prof- ]
With the speeding up of the air mail. ]
he estimated that within a year or two
at least 10 per rent of the country's
mail would be flown.
The Pennsylvanian said he would
make no attempt to ha*'** his measure
mooted at the extra session next month,
but expected Its speedy passage at the
HEIR TO NEARLY $250,000,

GENEVA, March 16. —Preliminary j
work for the revision of the statutes of j
the World Court of Justice was com- j
i pleted today. Elihu Root and Sir Cecil
Hurst were named to submit a final
1 ; report on the question of the accession
! 1 of the United States to the court.
The iurists. leaving the council room,
j said that no new difficulties had arisen,
j but that the commission wanted to
have before it a final acceptable text
i of the protocol of 1926 which relates
to all aspects of the American reserva
i ttons. including the question of the
Council’s right to request advisory
. CP Presldent Scialoia left for Rome, say
ing: “We have finished. It is now
a auesticn of drafting.
The question of the British dominions
was raised by Sir Cecil in a manner
which interested all the jurists. He re
called that by article 31 of the statutes
when a state has an interest involved
in a dispute submitted to the court it
possesses the right to appoint a nation
al judge to sit during consideration of
■ th«* dispute in the event that it has no
judge on the bench at the time.
Sir Cecil explained that the British
Emoire is an association of autonomous
self-governing states which are inde
cmdent members of the League, and
he wanted to make sure that if a case
involving, for instance, Canadian inter
ests arose Canada would not be pre
vented from annotating a judee just be
cause an Englishman already was on
r | th- bench.
I The drafting committee probably will
: re frr this miestlon in its report.
Another decision was to nut a clamp
in th° court statutes authorizing the
court to deliver advisory opinions. The
r only mention of advisory ontaions is
in ’th" League covenant and s-veral
jurists thought that the Court should
1 ; be given sneeifle authority to do some-
I thing which it already is doing in prac
| tier. Moreover it was pointed out that
, ; the American reservations directly
.‘touch advisory opinions and that the
statute should be clear on this point.
S«nator Walsh of Montana is under
! stood to have been a strong advocate
! of amending the statute in this direc
' tion. . . .. ..
y ' Adopting the svstem of rotation, the
I jurists have decided that 11 of the 15
j judges always should be at the Hague
to hear cases.
