HELEN TO FORGIVE CAROL,BUCHAREST CIRCLES FORECAST Reconciliation Is Expected After He Returns Michael to Princess’ Care. ' KING PREPARES GREAT GREETING FOR MOTHER Maniu or Jorga May Form Cabinet as Rumanian Ruler Flans Administration. B 7 the Associated Press. BUCHAREST. Rumania, June 9—An early reconciliation between the newly installed King Carol II of Rumania and his former wife. Princess Helen, today was forecast in official circles, when . Carol returned their son. Michael, to hit mother. Joint coronation of Carol and Helen in October was predicted. In official circles it was pointed out that, with the first interests of the country in mind and strengthened by the intimate needs of their son for a father and mother in the same domi cile. Carol and his former wife undoubt edly would adjust their viewpoints to the situation. The King and Princess Helen, who divorced him two years ago, had a long discussion yesterday on their future mutual attitude, and finally agreed not to demand an annulment of the divorce. Leaves Michael With Mother. The King took Michael, who is now known as the Duke of Alba Julia, to the Cotroceni Royal Palace. Today, how ever, the King personally took little Michael back to the Kisseleff Paiace, where Princess Helen is staying, and left him there with his mother. The little former king, just like any Plebian child, grew lonesome today for his mama, after spending the night with his royal daddy at the Cotrocent P&I&C6. Carol, although he had been installed as king, but a few hours before, found himself the abject subject of his little son, from whom he had been separated for so long. During the last few years, Michaels father had been just a name to him. He was a handsome man, who went away and was somewhere at sea, on a voyage that for some reason or * another never seemed to come to an end. King Carol, upon going to his son this forenoon, quickly perceived that the young man who had since Ferdi nands death been regarded as a mon arch, was still just a very small boy, and so he took him forthwith to the Princess Helen. Whether Helen*! decision would be based upon the needs of their child for a domicile with both his parents or the demands of a nation was left to con jecture. Only One Opposing Vote. King Carol was proclaimed King by arf almost unanimous vote in the Ru manian parliament yesterday. The only vote cast against him was that of Vintila Bratianu. former premier and liberal leader, and brother of lonel Bra tianu, one time dominant political fig ure in Rumania. The army has taken the oath ot fidelity to the new King and Carol has issued a proclamation to the Rumanian people stating that he had returned to serve his country and making an appeal for all groups to co-operate in the interests of the state. The King went to Curtes last night to visit the grave of his father. King Ferdinand, who died three years ago. He seemed deeply affected as he placed two wreaths on the tomb. He was back in Bucharest this afternoon, re suming his consultations with political leaders. On his return today, the King was given an enthusiastic reception by the populace. Helen Is Urged to Forgive. Strong emotional and political con siderations were urged today upon Prin cess Helen to forget her quarrel with Carol and to share with him the throne of Rumania. She was understood to have viewed and to have been moved deeply by a tremendous popular display in her for mer husband's favor yesterday. Romancers and politicians alike hoped an expression of willingness from her to live again by the side of the dash ing prince whom she is said always to love, despite his preference for Mme. Magda Lupescu, for whom he aban doned his throne and went to Paris. M. Marinescu, who after proclama tion of Carol as monarch resigned as premier to make way for a government of Carol's choice, talked with Helen, and was believed to have discussed with her possibility of nullification of their divorce. Court officials found that it was granted out of the ordinary term of court and therefore subject to ques tion. Meanwhile the nation's happiness at the straightening of the dynastic rec ord and at Carol's return seemed com plete. There is a possibility that either M. Maniu, who is tremendously popular, or Prof. Nicholas Jorga, Carol's former tutor, will be asked to form the next government. In a speech proposing nomination of Carol _as King. Prrf.

The District water department today found itself in stringent financial cir cumstances because of the failure of Congress to pass the 1931 appropriation bill. The department’s construction fund, used for service extensions, is exhaust ed, and the maintenance appropriation is barely sufficient to provide emergency repairs and replacements, which may j became necessary before the close of J the current fiscal year on June 30. Construction work has been com- ‘ plstely halted and nearly 200 per diem workers laid off temporarily, a skeleton maintenance force is being maintained, I however, but on a flve-day-a-week schedule. As the water department’s construc tion fund becomes available immediately upon the signing of the appropriation bill by the President, it had anticipated its 1931 appropriations several months ago. The bill, however, is tied up in conference, with no definite indication of when It might pass. As a result the water department’s 1931 construction program must be held in abeyance. Unable to Start Work. The policy of making the depart ment’s construction funds available in advance of the fiscal year has enabled it to begin the succeeding year’s pro gram several months ahead of a new fiscal year. Thus it was prepared m April to begin work on the projects provided in the 1931 bill, but the de partment has been unable to proceed on account of the delay. The department's maintenance fund is budgeted for the 12-month period and its shortage at this time Ls due primarily to an unexpected outlay dur ing the year for operating the Bryant street pumping station, which is main tained on a reserve basis. The aux iliary pumping station was pressed into service for more than six months, due to a break in the first high-service main when it was put under the new M Street Bridge across Rock Creek. The station also was operated several times during periods of peak consump tion to maintain sufficient pressure in Mount Pleasant. Although the construction fund is depleted, the department has used its dwindling maintenance fund to make several temporary service connections in outlying sections. These temporary connections are made by running a small pipe on the surface of the ground from the nearest main to the house connection. To Reinforce Mains. D. W. Holton, superintendent of the water department, said that as soon as the appropriation bill is passed the fur loughed employes will be called back to work and the construction program started vigorously. One of the first projects will be a reinforcement of the mains in the fourth high-service area in Tenleytown and vicinity, w'here pressure is low at periods of peak con sumption on account of so-called “bottle necks’’ in the existing system. Apartment houses in the Tenleytown section have felt the effect of the re duced pressure, Mr Holton said, and arrangements have been made to press a fire engine into service to keep up pressure when it shows a tendency to drop.

SOUCEK SHATTERS ALTITUDE RECORD IN‘FAILURE’TRIAL v ...... ... i..... Mark for All Types of Air craft Is Established at 43,166 Feet. CHECK OF BAROGRAPHS REVEALS NEW FIGURES Flyer Believed He Had Exceeded German's Height, but Not Enough to Claim Honors. Official checking of the barographs carried by Lieut. Apollo Soucek on his altitude flight from the Anaccstia Naval Air Station last Wednesday afternoon shows that in reaching the height of 43,166 feet he smashed all altitude records for aircraft of all types and has assured his official world's record with a margin of 1,044 feet to spare, it was announced today by the Bureau of Standards. The announcement came as one of the greatest surprises in the history of altitude flying In this country, since barograph checking usually reduces the indicated altitude recorded by alti meters. Lieut. Soucek, following his flight, said that he believed there was a pos sibility he had exceeded the standing altitude of 41,794 feet established last year by Willi Neuenhofen of Germany, but he attached so little confidence to this possibility that he immediately made plans to try again, making anoth er effort, which was unsuccessful, on the following day. Describes Attempts to Rise. Under the international regulations governing altitude records, Soucek had j to exceed the old record by at least 100 meters to establish a new official rec ord. This required that he fly to an altitude of at least 42,122 feet. His altimeter, he said following Wednes day's flight, hovered for 20 minutes be tween 41,500 feet and 42,000 feet as he | tried to force the little plane higher. • On occasions, he said, the needle, which | faltered and trembled, seem to pass the | 42,000 mark, though by how much he I could not tell exactly, j Recognition of the record as official by the Federation Aeronautique Inter ! nationale, now regarded as a certainty. I will give Lieut. Soucek his second world record. He is holder of the world sea plane altitude record, made a year ago last Wednesday in the plane he used last week, with pontoons replacing the land wheels. This will be the second time Lieut. Soucek has held the world altitude rec ord. A year ago last month he estab lished a new record, which he lost only 17 days later to Neuenhofen. Passes Unofficial Balloon Record. In climbing to 43,166 feet Lieut. Sou cek passed for the first time in history the unofficial balloon record established by Capt. Hawthorne C. Gray. Army Air Corps, who died on a flight during which a check of his barographs showed he rose to an altitude of 42,470 feet. This record never was official, however, since the rules of the F. A. L. require that the pilot must be In control of his craft upon landing. Soucek experienced the lowest free-air temperature ever recorded in an air plane flight. An automatic continuous temperature recorded on a strut of his plane showed a minimum temperature of 67 degrees Centigrade or 69 degrees below zero Fahrenheit, according to Lieut. W. G. Brombacher, chief of the aircraft instrument section of the Bu reau of Standards. Calibration of Lieut. Soucek’s baro graph by H. B. Henrlckson of the Bu reau of Standards, who was official observer of the flight for the Federa tion Aeronautique Internationale and the National Aeronautc Association, showed he reached a region where the air pressure was down to only 118 mili meters.

TARIFF CONFEREES COMPLETE WORK. Republican Leaders Claim Votes to Pass Measure in Senate. By the Associated Press. The tariff bill conferees completed their correction of the measure today and Senator Smoot said he would re port it to the Senate in a few hours. The two conference reports on the j measure will be submitted to the Sen- ; ate, although both will be disposed of j by one vote. This is expected to come Thursday or Friday. Debate was not expected to start until j tomorrow. Republican leaders today claimed j enough votes to pass the bill by a nar- : row margin. They awaited an an- ' nouncement of the position of the two I Senators from Pennsylvania, Reed and Grundy, Republicans. Neither had made known how he would cast his ballot, and in the event of both opposing the measure, it was believed it might be defeated. There was much speculation, too. as to the fate of the measure at the White House if it is approved by Congress. It was announced last week President Hoover is keeping an open mind on the question of approval or veto. Be fore he reaches a decision the measure will be investigated by the usual de partmental agencies. Party spokesmen kept the tariff argu ment going over the week end. with statements issued through the Repub lican and Democratic national head quarters. Senator Steiwer, Republican, Oregon, said the country “is now presented with the usual spectacle of Democrats obtaining all possible tariff protection for the industries of their own States and then crying out against the tariff bill with the hope of gaining some partisan political advantage.” Senator Connally, Democrat, Texas, contended the bill "strikes a body blow at the American farmer, the American consumer and the great mass of the American people.” ATTEMPT TO IDENTIFY CAR FIRE VICTIM’S BODY Authorities Are Hopeful of Estab lishing Identity of Charred Body.

REPUBLICANS PLAN STRENUOUS BATTLE |IN NORTH CAROLINA Believe Candidate Will Be Stronger Against Bailey Than Simmons. PRITCHARD AND BUTLER FIGHT FOR NOMINATION Early Betums Show Nip-and-Tuck Run Between Two Leaders in Four-Way Race. BY G. GOULD LINCOLN'. The Republicans are to make a strenuous effort to elect a Senator in North Carolina to succeed Senator Simmons, according to reports today. The defeat of Senator Simmons in the Democratic primary Saturday by Josiah W. Bailey, takes the veteran Democratic leader out of the race. The belief has existed in some Republican quarters that it would be easier to elect a Republican in a race with Bailey than in a race with Senator Simmons. Political observers are of the opinion that North Carolina will elect Mr. I Bailey to the Senate when November | rolls round. They point out that Sen -1 ator Simmons already has let it be ; known that he does not intend to run | as an independent and that he will not oppose the regular Democratic ticket. The nominee of the Republicans for the Senate is still undetermined, al though the Republicans held a State wide primary on Saturday, as well as the Democrats. Four Republican candi dates were in the field. The returns, however, in the Republican primary, are not in. Believe Pritchard Will Win. Here in Washington, North Caro linians expressed the opinion today that Representative George M. Pritchard, of the tenth district, would in the end receive the nomination. The early re turns gave George E. Butler, brother of former Senator Marion Butler, a slight lead in the Republican primary, but the expectation is that Pritchard will over come this lead and win. Pritchard is the son of a former Senator from North Carolina. He created quite a stir in Washington after his election to the present Congress when he declined to be assigned an office in the House Office Building next to Representative De Priest, the Colored Representative from Illinois. The defeat of Senator Simmons by more than 60,000 votes in the Demo cratic primary was interpreted at the Capitol today as a punishment for bolting the national Democratic ticket (Continued on Page 2, Column 3.)

The unwillingness of the House con erees on the District appropriation bill to make any compromise with the Senate on the question of fiscal rela tions was reported to the Senate today by Senator Bingham, Republican, of Connecticut, chairman of the Senate group, and led Majority Leader Watson o declare that the Senate conferees are within their rights in “insisting on a compromise.” Shortly after the Senate convened Senator Bingham filed a statement signed by all five of the Senate con ;£ rees u ‘'; ttin & forth the reasons whv s9 e ooo b oon Ve li l at vA, Contlmmio n of the *^ 00 r ,™° contribution from the Fed th?D?stricT mCnt W ° Uld bG Unfair t 0 Unmoved by Persuasion. th? cferk h nf St tt tei 2 ent had been read by ha e m C S the SCnate ’ Senator £ °“ r Ih.U W hire conferees^ 6 ? mise non nnn Senate voted for a 4519 • amount ffERS*. “ thS n th°e r la B w ng 0 h f a T 92^ old w . h l h h e f Senat * on the statute books thi IhfbiiAhi^ ll^? i^frarnmg the bill this year the Federal contrihV. committee did not feeVmVn cumstances. that that amount should Sovfssss d ooi thls year> but did ap “Not Adequate or Fair.” , Bin & ham asserted that the House conferees have expressed unwill whicvf'U 0 S, han S e the $9,000,000 figure, the Connecticut Senator charac terHed as ‘neither adequate nor fair.” At this point the majority leader cnnfJ?/ Watson - inquired how many conferences were held.

He said the population is composed largely of Government clerks and that $9,000.- 000 is no longer adequate as the Fed eral contribution. “It would seem that the Senate con ferees are well within their rights in insisting on a compromise,” Senator Watson declared. The statement signed by the five conferees, Senators Bingham, Phipos of Colorado, Capper of Kansas, Glass of Virginia and Kendrick of Wyoming emphasized the fact that since the $9,000,000 lump sum was inaugurated in 1925, the total of annual aporopria tions has mounted from $31,183,152.28 in that year to approximately $43,300 - 000 in the pending bill. The statement called attention to a long list of mu nicipal projects the District will have to have in the near future and asked “where is all this money coming from’” The statement laid stress on the fact that the District is limited in expansion because its boundaries are forever fixed, and that its population is made up largely of Government clerks, who feel the burden of helping to maintain a Federal city.
