He FRANCE PREDICTS HOOVER’S DEFEAT Former Senator Asserts Party Must “Clean House” if It Succeeds. If the Republican party would elect the next President it must admit the wrongs of its recent administrations and “sweep its house Dr. Joseph L France, former Senator from Mary land and the only announced 1932 Republican presidential candidate to date, declared in an interview here late yesterday. “I don't believe Hoover has a chance in the world to be re-elected.” Dr. France asserted. “The Republican party must either defend him or it must repudiate him. If the Republican party would elect the next President, it must sweep Its house clean and admit the wrongs of its recent administrations. It ia time for a new deal all around." v Dr. France declared that a wide spread dissatisfaction with the Hoover administration demands repudiation of the Hoover administration by his party. In a prepared statement he issued to newspaper men here yesterday. Dr. France declared he expected to win the Republican nomination "provided the contest remains between President Hoover for renomination and myself for the presidential nomination.” The “wrdngs” which Dr. France said he would have the Republican party admit in it' "housecleaning" go beyond the Hoover administration and back to the’ days of President Harding. The "punitive reparations” exacted of Germany are economically unsound, Dr. 1 France asserted tn announcing he would : seek either repeal of the reparations entirely or radical modification He reiterated his demand also for repeal of the prohibition amendment.

DOOLITTLE SEES NEW AIR RECORDS Predicts Speed of 300 Miles an Hour for Land Planes at Air Races. . t By the Associated Pres*. CLEVELAND. August 7.—That a faster speed then any land plane ever has traveled before will be attained in . the national air races here August 29 to September 7 was the prediction today of Mai. James M. Doolittle. It will be very ; close to 300 miles an hour, he said. Do'little, “the flying hellion,” himself j will fly a plane which he expects will have a 300-miles-an-hour speed. He was to inspect it today as it nears com p!"tlon in the E. M. Laird plant at Chicago. The fastest any land plane thus far has traveled is 278.48 miles an hour, a record made by Adjutant Bonnet of France at Istres, France. The Ameri can record is held by Lieut. Alford Wil liams. former Navy ace. who todk a plane 266.59 miles an hour at Mineola, i Long Island, in 1923. Doolittle said he expects three avia tion speed records to be broken in this | year's races. They include Capt. Frank M. Hawks' Lcs Angeles to New York ; time cl 12 hours and 25 minutes. Doo ; little predicted Hawks' record will be | lowered a full hour. The assault on Hawks’ time is expect - ; ed as an extension of the transoonti ; nental free-for-all derby for men and ; wonrn pilots, to start August 31 at Los ; I Angeles. The end of this race is Cleve- I l land, but several cf the entrants have ! ■ Indicated they will continue the dash i from Cleveland to New York. Doolittle : ; will be among th-rn. The other records which the major i I expects to fall are those held by Adju-' tant Bonnet and Lieut. Williams. Doc little's plane has been designed : by E. M. Laird and is known as the j I “Laird speedwing solution.” It is a i biplan.? powered with a Wasp. Junior. I j radial air-cooled motoh specially built to develop approximately 530 horse i power. U. S. SEEKS EXCESS j RAIL PROFIT AGAIN! j Threaten to Hold Virginia Line’s Funds if Recapture Is Ignored. By the Associated Press, j The Government's second effort to enforce the excess profits recapture ; clause of the tranpar'.ation act was in stituted today against the Richmond, Fredericksburg & Potomac j j In its flist attempt, e.gainst the St. Louis & O'Fallon Railroad, the Gov ernment w-as overruled by the Supreme Court. • Today Controller General McCarl. acting on the request of the Interstate Commerce Commission, notified the Richmond. Fredericksburg & Potomac ! Railroad that pay for services rendered I for the Government would be withheld j until $693,705, due under a recapture ! order, was accumulated. ! The recapture clause permits the j Government to claim cne-half cf all learnings in excess of b \ per cent. The money would be placed in a revolving fund to be loaned to needy railroads. Marquette Profit Fixed. Almost simultaneously the commission today fixed tentatively the excess in come of the Pere Marquette Railroad for the years 1920 thtough 1925 at £1,641,025, with $820,512 held to be due i the Government. The sum sought from the Richmond. ; Fredericksburg & Potomac was termed the Government's share in excess! earnings for the years 1920 through! 1923 The period permitted the carrier to pay voluntarily expired today. Tnus. I the Controller General notified the rail road that all money due for passenger fares, freight charges and railway mail pay would be withheld until the sum due accumulated. The Controller General’s action pre cipitates what is expected to be the second court contest over the recapture clause and the Commerce Commission s method of administering it. Valuation Upset. In the O'Fallon case, the i abroad succeeded in the Supreme Court in; upsetting the valuation placed upon it by the commission. The carrier : contended the commission in its formula used in valuing its property had failed to give proper considera tion to coat of reproduction at current prices. The Federal Court at St. Louis, from which appeal was taken, did not pass on the validity of the commission's valuation because it found that the earnings which the railroad had been permitted to retain exceeded 8 per cent! on the valuation the railroad claimed.
