SUPREMACY OF AIR
BY U. S. FORESEEN
Cleveland Engine Manufac
turer Offers Trophy for
Fastest Land Plane.
By the Associated Press.
CLEVELAND, December 21,—Amer
ica as the future leader in the en
couragement of greater airplane speed
and performance la foreseen today by
Charles E. Thompson, Cleveland manu
facturer of airplane engine parts, who
haa announced the Thompson trophy
for the fastest land plane participating
in the international free-for-all events
at future national air races in this
country.
Thompson said the international
free-for-all will bear the same relation
to land performance as the Schne'der
Cup races do to seaplane competition.
AU Nations Invited.
All nations having air services are
asked to participate in the land plane
events. They will be called Thompson
trophy races, and a cup to be presented
by Thompson Products. Inc., of which
Thompson is president, is being de
signed.
The Thompson trophy race has been
approved by the National Aeronaauti
cal Association and letters of invita
tion are to be sent to other nations
and to manufacturers of airplanes.
Land plane speed should surpass that
of seaplanes, in the belief of Thompson.
They formerly did. In 1927. however, it
was surpassed by a seaplane traveling
278 miles an hour. At the last
Schneider Cup race the winner aver
aged 328 68 miles an hour.
Theoretically, however, Thompson
points out. land planes should be
speedier than seaplanes with their
bulky pontoons that offer a large
amount of resistance to the wind. The
tendency toward making landing gear
on land planes retractable also makes
for greater speed, he said.
As in the national free-of-all event
at the air races here last September,
planes participating in the Thompson
trophy races may be entered regardless
of size or type. Motive power may be
either gasoline, oil or rocket.
AU Classes Eligible.
Additional interest is expected to be
derived from the fact that planes may
be either commercial, military or naval.
The race will be In the SIO,OOO class,
according to Thompson. It is en
dowed by the donors for $5,000 and
the endowment fund is posted by the
association.
The trophy is to symbolize speed in
a prophetic fashion. Thompson said. It
will be presented each year to the win
ning country.
The endowment is to be used for the
purchase of replicas or plaques of the
trophy. They will be presented to the
first three flyers to place. Prizes for
the flyers, the amounts to be decided
on by the aeronautic association, are
to be given in addition.
If the winning pilot is in a commer
cial plane the trophy will be presented
by the Assistant Secretary of Commerce
in Charge of Aviation, if in a naval
or military plane by the corresponding
official in the Navy and War Depart
ments respectively.
The announcement of the award fol
lowed as a sequel to the free-for-all race
last September at the National Air
Races, which was won by Douglas Davis
of Atlanta. Ga., in a low-wing Travelair
monoplane powered with a 300-horse
power Wright engine. His average
w».s 209 miles an hour.
SEAMEN NEAR DEATH
AS SHIPS COLLIDE
Baltimore Man, Mate on Com
mercial Ibridian, and Sailor
May Not Survive Injuries.
Ey the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, December 21.—Two
members of the crew of Steamship
Floridian, outward bound from New
York, were probably fatally injured
when their boat collided with the
Copenhagen liner Bylayl off Bedloc’s
Island tonight.
First reports said the Floridian, of
the Moore and Mac Cormack Line, left
its pier at Twentieth street and was
proceeding slowly down the river when
it ran head-on into the Bylayl, which
was lying at anchor.
Second Mate Fisher of the Floridian,
a resident of Baltimore, and an un
identified seaman were closing a hatch
at the time of the crash. Both were
thrown head-first into the hold.
They were taken to a .Jersey City
hospital where it was said both had
skull fractures and internal injuries.
Both were given slight chances to re
cover.

Committee Favors 5
Bill for Narcotic j
Information Pay j
Difficulties of Detecting J
Smugglers Explained C
in Report to House. i
l I
By the Associated Press. I
The House judiciary committee yes- ,
terday approved a bill to authorize the
commissioner of prohibition to pay per- <
sons for information concerning viola- i
tlon or attempted violation of the nar
cotic law’s such amounts as he deems
appropriate.
"The importation of prohibited i
drugs,” the committee said in its report,
"is a difficult matter to detect. In that 1
quantities thereof may be concealed in i
extremely small containers, resort be
ing had even to shipment In lead pen- 1
cils from which the lead has been re- |
moved and the space thus provided
filled with deadly drugs. Therefore it I
is necessary for the agents of the Gov- |
ernment to secure information from
those who are engaged In or in some i
way connected with the traffic. A
"Experience has shown that fre- f
quentlv information concerning very fl
large shipments, underway could be ob- U
tained if the agents had authority to [j
pay for the information. It is the M
belief of the Department of Justice that ~
this permission will be of very material U
aid In tire detection and suppression of
this unlawful traffic.” ff
The measure was introduced by Rep- m
resentative Fish, Republican, New York. U

County on the Richmond Highway.
which resulted in the death of S. Gale I
Lindsay of Durham. N. C.. Coroner C.
A. Ranson of Fairfax County postponed 1
an inquest until more definite testi- Q
mony can be obtained.
Meanwhile an effort is being made 1
to locate J. E. Ormes. also of Durham, i
driver of the car which was hit and .
demolished by the motor cycle on which
Lindsay was riding. Ormes was last
seen in Washington at the Union Sta- l
tlon and it is hoped he will communi- i
cate immediately with authorities of
cither Fairfax or Prince William I
County. j
Parents on Way to Scene.
Lindsay’s parents are en route to [
Alexandria where their son's body is j
in charge of the Denalne mortuary ■
establishment.
The accident took place about 6:30 C
o’clock this morning. Young Lindsay,
en route from New York City to his I
home in North Carolina, had a head-on |
collision with the car driven by Ormes,
which, by a strange coincidence, was '
headed north from Durham. Both the .
automobile and motor cycle caught
fire. I
Lindsay's head and face were badly
crushed and his legs burned. Ormes
escaped with only minor Injuries. V
Autoist Gives Aid.
S. F. Chandler of Montross, Va., the
first automobilist to arrive at the scene, |
drove to Fort Humphreys for assistance
for Lindsay. The young man died
while being transported to the port’s |
hospital. Chandler later transported
Ormes to Washington, leaving him at I
the Union Station. According to a |
message telephoned to Fort Humphreys
by Chandler later In the day. Ormes
said he would send his report of the &
accident to authorities in Prince Wil- I
11am County. Cl
