DISTRESS LIQUIDATION' IS BELIEVED COMPLETED Brokers Express View Tliat Market Has Beached Bottom Price Level. BT STANLEY W. PRENOSIL, Associated Press Financial Editor. NEW YORK, November 7— Breaking •harply to new low ground on what ap peared to be further distress selling at the opening today, stock prices there upon rallied in spectacular fashion, wiping out most of the early declines of 15 to nearly *32 a share in the lead ing issues, and converting many of them into gains, ranging from *1 to *lB a share. It was one of the most im pressive recoveries since the current “bear" market started with the disas trous break of October 24. See End of Decline. Many brokers accepted the strong buying support which came into the market after the first flurry of selling had subsided as evidence that the mar ket had "struck bottom,” at least for the time being, and that the bulk of the distress stock that has been over hanging the market had been cleaned up. The rally started before the end of the first hour and continued through to the close, although final prices showed some concessions from the day’s high levels. in accordance with the rulmg the opening of trading Monday, today’s ses sion of the New York Stock Exchange was limited to three hours, closing at 1 p.m. Just before the close, the ticker was reported as 72 minutes late, with indications that the usual last minute rush of trading would delay the priting of the final quotation for about two hours.

DISPLAY OF FOREIGN TOYS DISRUPTS SENATE SESSION 4 - - - Dignified Lawmakers Unable to Resist Temptation to Make Wheels Go ’Round. By the Associated Press. Senatorial dignity gave way to a premature Yuletide spirit in the Senate chamber today as veteran and junior members in going to their desks passed a huge display of knicknacks ranging from brass boms to bird cages. Gathering about the big table of ex hibits Senator after Senator could not resist the temptation to pick up an article to see the wheels go ’round or to smell of the aroma of a foreign per fume. In the middle of a quorum call when all was supposed to be quiet like the night before Christmas, Senator Norris of Nebraska, chairman of the judiciary committee, fetched a huge bra?-! horn, rose on his toes and made many arocn i him hold their ears as he began, but did not finish a powerful blast. Then another Senator lifted a Dawes Tries New Collar as London Lacks “V-Neck” Orthodox Wing Style Takes Place of Ambas sador's “Fold-Over.” By the Associated Press. Observing friends of Ambassador Charles G. Dawes have been speculating on whether one of two personal acces sories that he has made famous is to be seen no longer. During Gen. Dawes’ visit to the White House this week, the well known uoder slung pipe has been a steady companion, 1 but that peculiar fold-over collar with 1 a V opening in front has been replaced j by the more Orthodox wing neckwear. This much light was thrown on the situation today by Rufus C. Dawes, the general’s brother, who is visiting in Washington. The change came about because "of the exigencies of London haberdashers,” said Rufus, adding that the British apparently never heard of that odd collar of his brother’s. When Gen. Dawes himself was asked about it, he waived his hand in mock seriousness in much the same manner he did when he was asked some time ago about silk stockings and knee breeches, asserting: "I won’t say a thing about anything like that." arndTdMed AT LOBBY HEARING Southern Tariff Association Head Defends Self Under Fire. J .A. Arnold, general manager of the j Southern Tariff Association, was pic- ; tured as unfair to the interests he pre sumed to serve today by the Senate lobby committee, which inquired further into his political activities in behalf of certain agricultural rates in the tariff bill. Numerous letters purporting to reveal Arnold’s interest in asking the two Democratic Florida Senators, Fletcher and Trammell, to support the whole bill in exchange for higher rates on Florida products, and the elimination of the so-called seasonal provision, were read into the committee record. Arnold was described by Senator Blaine, Republican, of Wisconsin, as determined to force the Florida Senators to vote according to the tariff associa tion's wishes by using every Influence, political, financial and social, at his command. Arnold denied any such activities. It was not necessary to “whip the j Florida Senators in line,” he said, add- 1 ing that it *u necessary only to con-i vint* them of the reasonableness of their position. Fletcher Refuses to “Trade.” Senator Fletcher vigorously refused to subscribe to the association’s views, a letter from Fletcher disclosed, on the grounds that If he promised administra tion leaders to support the tariff bill as a whole he would be “out of it” if i there was any trading to be done, i Further letters disclosed that while Arnold was corresponding with Florida interests in an effort to win Fletcher and Trammell over to support of the bill, he was advising Senator Watson, the Republican floor leader, and Sen ator Reed of Pennsylvania of a re ported agreement between the Demo crats and Republican insurgents out of which Midwestern agricultural prod ucts were to receive rates even higher than advocated by the so-called farm group. In letters to the two Senators. Arnold wrote that the farm group met last October and that Senator Brookfegrt, Republican, of lowa, stated that he and Senator Frazier, Republican, of North Dakota, were proposing to offer 75 amendments raising Midwestern rates. Arnold advised the administra tion leaders that Brookhart had said the Insurgents would support the Demo crats in opposing the flexible provision in return for Democratic * support for, the higher Western rates. Arnold said I further in his letters that these rates were higher than the House bill and | higher than those the farm group had 1 asked for. Senator Blaine, Republican, Wis consin, and Senator Caraway, Demo crat of Arkansas, chairman, were unable to elicit from Arnold a satisfac tory explanation of why he conveyed this information to the Republican lead- I ers. Arnold insisted he knew no reason why he should not convey it to any body and said it was merely to give them "information.” "You claim to have been associated I with the farm group and to have co- I operated with them in writing the tariff j bill,” Blaine observed, "and you were slipping information of the farm group i conference, not generally known, to Republican leaders. Did you give the ! information to anybody else?” Arnold said he did not think so. Denies Use of Pressure. When the Fletcher correspondence was touched on, Senator Blaine asked Arnold if the purpose of his organiza tion was not to use the "ax-handle” on the Florida Senators to force them to support the bill as a whole. Blaine asked the witness several times if he was not co-operating with admlnist.ra (Continued on Page 2, Column 4.) • ukelele* and began strumming an air that no one could make out. Mixing in the fun. Senator Vanden* berg of Michigan took a big purple bot tle, deposited on the desk of Senator Brookhart of lowa, who only two days ago revealed the goings on at what he termed a "Wall Street booze party’* in a Washington hotel. Brookhart had no! yet arrived, but he was denie<Whe "gift'' anyway when a Capitol attache took the bottle away. When the session finally opened and i the tariff debate resumed, Senator Barkley of Kentucky asked: "By what authority have Kresge and !

The tariff, of course, was responsible for the parly, as the "presents'* turned out to be a display of foreign articles, the cheapness of which high tariff ad vocates wanted to use to holster thou claims for increased duties, t W)tz %u\i\m J§kf.

IMPROVEMENTS WOULD COVER 5-YEAR PERIOD Project Requires Raising Rates orj Taking Money From General Tax Fund. The District Commissioners at the daily meeting with officials of the Bud get Bureau considering the District’s 1931 estimates, today were endeavoring to secure the bureau’s approval of its five-year program for improvement of the water distribution system. The city heads met early this morning to plan their arguments! and left immediately for the bureau after a short meeting, accompanied by Assistant Engineer Commissioner Hugh P. Oram, who wrote the report recommending the five-year program. At the Budget Bu reau they were to meet Maj. Brehon B. Somervell, United States engineer of ficer for this district, who concurred in the report. Recommends Radical Change. The report, which recommended a radical departure in the method of financing Washington’s water works, called for expenditure of $1,287,000 1 from the general tax levy over the five year period for Important lmprovementc in the distribution system, including i reconstruction and enlargement of old ! mains, laying many -ew mains and building a reservoir In Anacostia. Heretofore all such projects have been paid for out of water rents, which are kept separate from the rest of ihe Districts’ revenues. This practice had brought the District to the point where its distribution system was getting out of date, and there was no money in sight from revenues to meet the needed Improvements. Two courses remained j open—to raise the water rates or to J get the extra money from the general j tax fund. Capt. Oram recommended j the latter course, and this is what the j Commissioners are now discussing with j the Budget Bureau. Distribution System Paying. While the Budget Bureau’s refusal to consider the new plan would not be absolutely fatal, as Congress could over ride its recommendations and approve I the Commissioners’ scheme, a refusal by | the bureau would be a severe blow to l the chances of securing the appropriate legislation. It to believed that the Com missioners will argue that the equities of the situation demand the change sought. The District's cash surplus, with more than $8,000,000, Is in a healthy condition. The distribution system Is now paying, according to Capt. Oram’s figures, a return in excess of 7 per cent on the capital Invested, and to seek'capital for further invest ment through an Increase in rates Is not in line with good commercial practice. 80 BRITISH LAW MAKERS WILL TAKE TRIP ON R-101 Lady Astor and Two Other Woman Members of Parliament Will Be in Party.

The Pennsylvania delegates, two of whom represented the Chamber of Commerce of Gettysburg, and the other a member of the Pennsylvania legislature, from New Oxford, Pa., laid before the Maryland authorities a plan of their own, but they said that they were not tied to It, but were willing to join hands with others to foster any movement which \.ould result in ulti mately bringing the proposed new high way rapidly into a reality. They came, they said, to discuss the matter frankly and asked the same frankness on the part of the Maryland officials and chamber representatives. They asked them to consider the Pennsylvania plan,« deliberate on it, and then let them know the results, and said that what ever the decision, they would join hands and move together to the ultimate goal. Members of Conference. E. V. Bulleit and Henry M. Scharf of the Gettysburg Chamber of Commerce, and George D.

FLIGHT CONTINUED BY “ROBOT” PILOT Generator Repaired, Mechan ical Device Guides Plane From Here to Long Island. Mechanician “physicians** last night doctored the “robot pilot,” newest ar rival in the ranks of Army aviators, and early this morning the little. box which yesterday proved it could pilot a plane in straight, level flight as well as any aviator, was "well” enough to pilot its charge, a tri-motored Army transport, from Bolling Field to Mitchel Field, Long Island. The “robot pilot,” its power plant out of commission, arrived in Washington for th* first time yesterday afternoon, after a flight from Dayton, Ohio, in which it did most of the work of keep ing the ship.on a true and level course. The mechanical plane piloting device, invention of Elmer A. Bperry, developer of other gyroscopic devices, took charge of the transport’s controls shortly after the plane took the air this morning and piloted it to the Long Island landing field The plane was taken off by Maj. A. H. Gilkeson of Wright Field, Dayton, who also landed it at its Long Island destination. At Mitchel Field the "robot” will be given further tests and demonstrated for Army aviators. Generator Is Repaired. The transport arrived in Washington yesterday afternoon with Maj. Gilkeson at the controls, after the mechanical pilot’s power plant, a wind-driven generator mounted on the plane, had gone out of commission near Leeaburg. Va. Up to that time the mechanical pilot had had complete charge of the plane and piloted it safely on its way. Only slight repairs were necessary to put the device in order and these were made at Bolling Field last night while the transport's crew spent the night in the Capital. Up to the time of the failure of the generator yesterday afternoon the mechanical pilot functioned perfectly, it is reported by the Army flyers who are accompanying the little box on its flights. Once on the flight, they report, it took the big plane safely and evenly through a fog bank. Unequal, however, in its present stage of development, to landing and taking off, these services were performed for the robot aviator by the “human element” aboard. More sensitive to changes in flying conditions, and lacking the “human element” probability of error, the mechanical pilot guides the plane through the air more surely, more steadily, than any human pilot. It needs only human brains to direct its work, to check its operations, and, occasionally human help when sudden gusts of wind drive the ship from its course. Device Weigh* SO Pounds. The device weighs only 50 pounds Its mechanism is housed in a box 14 by 14 by 10 Inches, which can be placed 1 | beneath the pilot’s seat of a plane. The j mechanism consists principally of two : ; gyroscopes, one mounted vertically and ' the other horizontally, which, by electric j contacts, operate the major controls of 1 the plane, the rudder for direction, the , elevator for maintenance of level alt 1- J tude and the aerolons for keeping the * ship on an even keel. With these con trols constantly under the mechanical pilot’s care in flight, the airplane is sensitive, it is claimed, to a movement of one-half of 1 degree about its axis. The average human pilot is reported far less sensitive. It has been under 50 hours of tests, in all sorts of weather, on flights be tween New York and New Bedford, Mass., and between New York and Day ton. The Army's experiments with it have been under the direction of Lieut. Albert F. Hegenberger of California-to- j Hawaii flight fame. ■ Eighteen years have been spent in the development of the mechanical pilot. I It was with a device of this order that ] Lawrence Sperry, son of the inventor, in 1914 won a "safety in flight” prize of I 20,000 francs. Young Sperry later was killed in the English Channel. In the plane when it arrived at Bolling Field yesterday afternoon were Mr. Sperry, Lieut. Hegenberger, Mai. Gilkeson. chief of the equipment branch at Wright Field, and Capt. Cyrus A. Blair of the Army Air Corps, one of the developers of the device. The value of the device for getting transport pilots through fog banks on an even keel and for night flying is in estimable, its designers claim. For all flying it. offers the pilot relief from the I every-minute watchfulness that is nec essary in cross-country flying as it is known today. - • ... King to Go to Theater.

EXCESSIVE PUNISHMENT TO BE GROUND OF PLEA Expected to Be Filed With Com missioners Tomorrow—Pratt Goes Duck Hunting. Adopting the famous Salvation Army war-time slogan, "A man may be down, blit never out," Policeman Robert J. Allen announced today that he proposed to fight more vigorously than ever to prevent the imposition of the sentence of dismissal decreed by the police trial board, which yesterday found him guilty on charges of insubordination and conduct unbecoming an officer. Allen's attitude was in marked con trast to the submissive position he took before the trial board when he said with a cynical air that he was aware that his career on the police force was at an end and that it was futile for him to fight any longer. “I am not licked yet, however,” he declared reas suringly today, "and I intend to go on fighting Just the same as in the past.” Attorneys Prepare Appeal. In the meantime, Allen’s attorneys, i H. Ralph Burton and Tench T. Marye. began preparation of an appeal Jo the District Commissioners from the Trial Board's verdict. The policeman's fate rests with the Commissioners, who have the power to modify or set aside the Trial Board’s findings. Once before he escaped removal through the medium of an appeal to the Commissioners, who set aside the Trial Board’s verdict. In this case the officer was found guilty of unwarranted use of his revolver in wounding a colored boy. Marye indicated that the appeal prob ably would not be filed until tomorrow. Allen has four more days in which to make the move which will automatically stay the sentence pending a review of the case by the Commissioners if the appeal is entertained. The appeal, it was said, will be based on grounds that the punishment stipu lated by the trial board is out of all proportion to the offense: that the board did not give sufficient consideration to the case, and that the decision to de prive the officer of his reputation and means of livelihood could not have been reached fairly in 15 minutes, the length of the tAard'a deliberation aftsr the close of tire trial. Pleaded His Own Case. Neither Burton nor Marye repre sented Allen at his trial and he pleaded his own case. The policeman said he did not avail himself of their services before the trial board “to spare them the humiliation of participating in that hideous travesty on Justice which re sulted in my sentence of dismissal from the force.” "There is no question of the sin cerity of either Burton or Marye to represent me at the trial,” Allen added, "This was evidenced by the fact that when I informed them that I was financially embarrassed, they offered their services without fees. They both agreed with me that it would not have been much use in view of the attitude of police officials who were determined to get rid of me at any cost, irrespec tive of whether I was innocent or guilty.” The official report of the trial board’s findings, bearing the indorse ment of Maj. Henry G. Pratt, superin tendent of police, was forwarded today to the Commissioners. No action will be taken by the Commissioners pending the receipt of Allen's appeal. Mast Confirm Finding. The Commissioners, however, must confirm a police trial board’s findings before the sentence can be carried out. It 1s customary for them to wait five days, the period in which the notice of an appeal may be filed, before acting on a trial board case. If an appeal is entertained, 10 days are allowed for its perfection. Allen, therefore, is not like ly to know his fate for nearly a month, since the Commissioners may take a week or more to review the case. Maj. Pratt, who preferred the charges on which Allen was convicted, tossed the cares of his office into the back ground today and went on a duck-hunt ing expedition. Inspector E. W. Brown, in charge of the Traffic Bureau, and one of the three assistant superintend ents, occupied Maj. Pratt's office. Doyle Goes on Trial Monday. 1 Capt. Robert E. Doyle, suspended ; commander of the eighth precinct, ; whose outspoken defense of Allen | caused Maj. Pratt to charge him with insubordination, will not seek another 1 continuance in his case, but will go to ; | tfial Monday as scheduled according to j T. Morris Wampler, one of his attor | neys. The officer has already been i granted two continuances. ! Wampler said if the Police Depart ; ment wanted a fight he is ready for it. His statement was taken to indicate that no further attempts will be made j I to adjust Doyle’s case to save him from ; j appearing before a police trial board. ' Twice, already, overtures to settle the j j case "out of court” failed.
