By the Associated Pres* HARBOR GRACE, Newfound land. June 26.—The sky trail to New York was resumed today by Capt. Charles Kingsford-Smith and his three flight companions of the world-girdling airplane Southern Cross. The plane made t perfect takeoff at daybreak. - Prevented by blinding fog and compass trouble from completing; an Ireland-New York hop and landing here with barely enough petrol to wet her tanks, the vet eran plane was in the air again within 20 hours after completing a hop from Ireland. It hopped off at 3:05 a.m. (E.S.T.L Capt. Kingsford-Smith had 400 gallons of petrol and 12 gallons of oil put into the tanks yesterday j In preparation for today’s hop. The plane taxied 100 yards be fore going into the air. A light westerly wind was blowing. A flight of 1,100 miles faced the Bouthern Cross, with an estimate of 12 to 14 hours flying time being neces- j sary. The direct course lay over Cabot J Strait, Cape Breton Island and Nova Scotia, and by a slight deviation would j include New England. Capt.

Flight Took 32 Hours. The second successful westward crossing of the perilous Atlantic in the history of aviation was made in 32 hours’ flying time. The Southern Cross left the airport at Port Marnock. Irish Free State, early Tuesday morning. The plane arrived here at 5:57 a m.

Within a few minutes the Australian leader of the expedition, announced his intention to take off within 24 hours for New York and San Francisco. Two years ago the Southern Cross was flown from San Francisco to Aus tralia by Capt. Kingsford-Smith in the first transpacific crossing Later it was flown to England by the Australian. The ship is a veteran of five years' fly in e. While the fliers rested here in prep aration for the flight to New York messages of congratulations came from all over the world. A message from Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd was one of the first to arrive.

Charles Kingsford-Smith here tells briefly his own s'ory of the successful flight of the Southern Cross over the Atlantic.. He will write a full story of his experiences for The Evening Star and the New York Times on his arrival in New York. BY CAPT. CHARLES KINGSFORD-SMITH. Commander and Chief Pilot of the Airplane Southern Cross. HARBOR GRACE. Newfoundland. Jutge 25. —The Southern Cross had no difficulty in rising from Point Marncck Beach and lifted at once to 3.500 feet. Right from the start we had radio communication. The weather, until we reached the coast of Newfoundland, was bad. with rain and bumps, which is unpleasant with a heavily loaded machine. Rather strong headwinds prevaileu three-fourths of the flight and generally bore out the forecast. We held a perfect course, thanks to Capt.. Saul, our navigator, who nevej-- fhrless would have been helpless at times, on account ot an overcast skv pro hibiting Taking observations, were it not for the wonderful radio assistance given us by John Stannage practically throughout the whole trip. We were able to receive radio bearings from ships, which in all modesty 1 claim to be one of the first radio shows ever put up for air work. Scarcely Saw Sky or Sea. All went fairly well till we reached a point between 30 and 35 degrees | longitude, when we ran into the "blind stuff,” and from then on we scarcely saw sky or sea. However, that is to show the rapid working cut of the raoio compass bearings given us by Mr. Stannage. We were informed of our position constantly. About 3 o’clock. Greenwich mean time (10 p.m. Eastern standard time-, we were In a position about 350 miles from Cape Race, and expected to reach that point in four hours. To our consternation, however, the radio bearing showed we had made only 120 miles in four hours, which even for our reduced ground speed was a ridiculously low figure. W? found that our inability to maintain a perfect landing while flving blind, added to, I believe, bv the rapidity in changes of variation, caused our compass to swing unusually, with a consecuence that we were evidently flying in a most erratic course. This is borne out by the extraordinarily differing radio bearings we received from ships. Instruments Not Blamed. I would like to stress that this seems to be a condition likely to be met in this locality in the air and no blame Is attributable to the instruments. Had this not occurred we could have probably made a point 700 miles nearer New ] York, as we landed with three and a half to four hours’ supply of petrol. Radio advices called our attention to the fact that ground conditions at Harbor Grace were free from fog, and, with the limited flying range, it would., in my 1 opinion, have been most unwise to have proceeded any further. Naturally we i are disappointed by this, but the disappointment has been mitigated by the 1 amazing sources of our organization from the point of view of radio. The weather practically bore out the forecast, but we did not anticipate 1 meeting a heavy fog so far from our destination, and we actually flew blind practically half the trip. The ocean fog is apparently unlimited in height 1 as we were still flying blind up to 5,000 feet, but tht fog actually on the Grand Banks is considerably lower, and frequently there is clear air over the fog at 1.000 feet. , j Throughout the trip we were in two-way communication with shipping, ! and for a great part of the time in this way in connection with shore. This more than bears out my theories as regards two-way radio being essential. Tays Tribute to His Comrades. I would like to pay a great tribute to all the boys, who worked magnificently and untiringly throughout the flight. Each was perfect in his particular sphere. An hour and a half before Harbor Grace was leached we knew that the gas , was running short and we were conserving it for emergencies. I particularly I ! wish to thank the radio operators of all the radios and ships, especially on the : Transylvania, who were untiring in their efforts to assist us and to whose good offices we are deeply indebted We are grateful to the New York Times for ! offering to send a plane, which, happily, was not necessary, and are grateful I also to everybody who sent congratulatory messages. The trip occupied 31 hours from Dublin to Harbor Grace. We are now I putting on board 400 gallons of gasoline, which will give us plenty of radius j to reach Roosevelt Field tomorrow evening leaving here after daylight tomorrow. !

Following a debate between Secretary of the Navy Adams and Representative McClintic, Democrat, Oklahoma, on the relative merits of aircraft and battle* i ships in the "next war," the House naval affairs committee today voted its approval of the bill to modernize three battleships at a. cost of $30,000,000. By agreement among the committee members. Chairman McClintic will not press the measure on the floor at this i time, but will seek its adoption by the House in December. The bill would , provide for elevating guns, adding “blis i ters” and renewing boilers on the bat ■ tleships New Mexico, Mississippi and | Idaho. Secretary Adams told the committee I the alterations were imperative in ord~r to establish parity with Great Britain ; under the terms of the London naval ! treaty. He urged that the work start 1 at. once, because of the "industrial sit* I uatlons” at the navy yards. Wanted Plane Provisions. The discussion between the Okla ! homan and the Navy Secretary pre ceded an unsuccessful attempt by the i former to amend the bill so as to pro ! vide skeleton decks or other facilities for launching bombing planes from the battleships. Secretary Adams took issue with Mc j Clintic’s claim that the World War had i shown the superiority of submarine? I and destroyers over battleships and that j subsequent development of bombing 1 airplanes and dirigibles has renderec battleships ineffective in, war. The committee heard a revival of a controversy which has continued since the hectic days of disturbance featured by the court-martial of Gen.

COMPROMISE MEASURE IS EXPECTED TO PASS Rules Suspended to Expedite New Bill More to Executive s Liking. Hope for Adjournment by Tues day Held in Some Quarters, but Ii Doubtful. BY C., GOULD LINCOLN. President Hoover's veto of the veterans’ bill was sustained by the House today. The vote came on a motion to : pass the bill notwithstanding the disapproval of the President. The 1 roll call showed 182 ayes and 188 ! noes. As a matter of fact, a majority of the House voted to sustain the President. It would have re i quired a two-thirds vote of the i House to override the veto. Loud cheers from the Republican aide j greeted the announcement of the vote by Speaker Longworth. The size of the ! vote sustaining the President's veto was l larger than had been expected. Sev i eral Democrats joined with the Repub : licans who voted to sustain the Presi dent’s veto, among them Representative Cochoran of Missouri. Compromise to Be Passed. The action of the House on the veto ! clearly indicated that the compromise bill, which was immediately offered by Representative Royal Johnson of South : Dakota, would be passed before adiourn ; nient today and sent to the Senate. On the roll cell, 45 Republicans voted to override the President's veto. Three i Democrats vo;ed to sustain the veto. I The three Democrats who voted to sus tain the President’s veto were Cochoran of Missouri, Ayres of Kansas and Whit tington of Mississippi. The President in his veto measure said: "One of the most repugnant taAks ; which can befall this office Is to dls | approve of measures intended to bene- I °ur sick nr disabled men who have served our country in the war." The President said he had a full I realization of the dangers to which the j Nation had ordered its sons in the ! World War. He said that he could , have no greater satisfaction than to | support just measures proposed for their | benefit "But I want a square deal between veterans—not unjust discrimination be tween special groups and I do not want ! wasteful or unnecessary expenditures." said the President. Previous Help Cited. "The country already generously pro- I vides for the 280,000 men whose health j or earning power is shown to have been I impaired by their service in the war and j for 91,000 dependents of the men who suffered or died. That is and should be a great charge upon the Nation." “This measure except for a small I P ai 't adds nothing to aid veterans wounded or disabled In the war.” ! The Hbuse chamber was crowded l with members as the message of the i President, some 1,800 words in length was read. Before the President’s veto message was read, the House adopted a resolu tion offered by Chairman Snell of the , rules committee making it in order to ; suspend the rules and pass legislation at any time until the close of the Present session. The vote was 227 to This resolution was adopted so as to ! make it possible to deal promptly with the compromise veterans’ bill which i Representative Johnson, chairman of I veterans’ legislation, offered as soon ' the President's veto has been act ed on. House leaders were encouraged to be lieve today that it might be possible to adjourn Congress by next Tuesday. | Murh will depend, however, upon the ( attitude of the Senate toward the com nromise veterans’ bill when It is sent Ito '.hat body.
