I TOWLINE BREAKS AGAIN I Hawks Lands Glider in Race Track Infield When Cable - Parts Near Terre Haute. BY CAPT. FRANK M. HAWKS, i [ Holder of the Transcontinental Airplane * Speed Record. I COLUMBUS. Ohio. April 5 (N.A. ! N.A.).—Another broken towline yester- ; day did not prevent our transcon- 1 tinental air train from arriving here on schedule last night. Unlike the first parting of the cable at Tucson, the second morning out of San Diego when it slacked and then snapped, yesterday’s breaking of the line was quite unexpected and inexplicable. 1 We had just taken off from Dresser Field. Terre Haute, our first gassing sta tion out of East St. Louis. Duke Jer nigin was nosing the plane upward in quest of altitude. We were at about I. feet. Without any forewarning the cable, as though it were as tired as are we, broke a few feet back of the tew plane, of course, carrying away the [ telephone line with it. Lands in Race Track. Just previously I had spotted a race track a couple of miles away, from , which I thought the tow could take off. I nosed the Eaglet toward the infield. Remembering the loss of our first cable after I dropped it in the desert near Tucson. I did not pull the release until I was circling the field . and then dropped it where I was sure it would be found. It was no trick at all to land the Eaglet, and a moment later Duke sat Will Rogers Says: BEVERLY HILLS. Calif., April 5 At a dinner one night at Ambassador Dawes' I told the Japanese delegate, “Admiral Takahari, I want to shake hands with you. I am going home in a few months, I want to tell everybody I shook hands with the winner.” Japan :ame to the conference de manding a higher rating, 10-10-1, instead of 10-10-6. Yesterday she got it. They could have given it to her the first day and saved all this , board bill. I have said all the time that if anything was done at London it w'ould be on battleships and not on cruisers (the thing they went ■ there to settle on). You see Eng land, on account of her dozens of ; coaling stations, don’t need battle ships, and neither does Japan, they want cruisers so they agree to limit something that they don’t want but | we do.

There we lunched at the field and sped right on into Columbus’ fine airport. It was quite rough yesterday. Never theless, the monotony of the air sing ing through the Eaglet’s struts nearly lulled me to sleep at times, and I had to sing over the telephone to Duke and Wally in the tow ship to keep awake. Os my amateurish vocal offerings they seemed to be annoyed least by “Little by Little.” 1 Sees Interest in Gliding. It was gratifying to observe in nearly all of the many small Indiana and Ohio towns over which we passed yesterday that the streets and the corners and the crossroads were lined with upgazing people. That they turned out to watch our passage: New Yorkward strengthened my conviction that our flight is having its desired effect of stimulating interest in gliding. Yesterday’s flying brought our total hops to 14. our mileage to 2.260, our tow time to 27 hours and 34 minutes and our gliding exhibitions to 5 hours and 20 minutes. Stopping for gas at Cleveland and for the night at Buffalo today, we should be in Van Cortlandt Park promptly at 4 o’clock Sunday afternoon. (Copyright. 1930.) Seeks Election MISS ETTA L.

Six members of the Citizens’ Advisory Council will be elected out dt a field of 14 at a special election meeting of the Federation of Citizens’ Associa tions tonight. The meeting is called for 7 o’clock in the board room of the District Building. There are 15 names on the ballot, but since it was printed A. E. F. Scheer. now a member of the council, has withdrawn. Chief interest in the balloting tonight centers around the candidacy of a woman, Miss Etta Taggart, and a for mer member of the council, William A. Roberts. If Miss Taggart polls a suffi cient vote to be elected, she will have the honor of being the first woman to win a scat on the council. At every election sirfee the council’s foundation In 1924 there has been a woman can didate. None of them has ever been successful, but many are forecasting Miss Taggart’s election. She has won popularity as a delegate from the Pro gressive Citizens’ Association of George town. of which she was a founder, and the Society of Natives. Defeated Last Year. Roberts was beaten at the council elections last year after a long fight with President George C. Havenner of i the federation. At the federation elcc- ! tlon two years ago he managed the 1 campaign of Walter I. Swanton, who ran against Havenner. Swanton was decisively beaten and Havenner drop ped Roberts from the vice chairman ship of the public utilities committee, where he had won some distinction in the fight against the Harley Wilson street car merger plan. It is understood that this is now all water under the bridge and that Rob erts and Havenner have buried the hatchet. Roberts voted with the ma jority in the federation’s indirect sup port of the nomination of Maj. Gen Herbert Crosby as District Commis sioner. a somewhat unusual occurrence for him. and he has been put back on the public utilities committee. The prophets have picked him to get his council seat back this time. He is from j the Conduit Road Citizens* Association. It seems conceded on all hands that Charles I. Stengel of Petworth will be re-elected for a third term. He is a former member of Congress and does any legislative work the federation feels in need of. Harry N. Stull, another former mem ber who is trying to come back, is also looked upon as fairly sure of elcc ! tion. He is from the Stanton Park j Citizens’ Association, and is personally popular w'tih his fellow delegates in the federation. Other Contests Likely. The other two places probably will ! be fought out among Dr. William M. I Deviny of Michigan Park, Graham H. I Powell of Cathedral Heights, and Thomas E. Lodge of American Uni versity Park. Lodge is now a member I of the council and chairman of the j federation’s committee on law and legis- ( lation. Powell has the backing of Com- ! missioner George Wales of the Civil ! Service Commission, delegate to the fed- I eration from Cathedral Heights and formerly vice president of the federa- i tlon and a member of the council. Deviny is new to coifhcil politics, but is strongly backed by one of the com manding factions from the Northeast. Stull and Deviny are the only two members from the eastern section of the city. Should they be elected, it will give the east a numerical majority on the council, although the majority of the population lives west of North Cap itol street. There are nine members of the council. Its president. Dr. Haven ner, is from Anacostla, and the two colored members are both easterners. With two more easterners elected to night, this would give the east a five-to four majority. The council is composed of nine ♦ Smokeless Chimneys . 1 and Civic Reality Smoke is the Great Destroyer of civic beauty.
