German War Ace and Woman
Among Honolulu-to-San
Francisco Eligibles.
By th» Associated Press.
SAN JOSE. Calif.. September 30.
J. K. von Althaus, war-time member
cf the air circus of Baron von Richto- <
fen, German ace, announced yesterday
four men and a woman will draw lots
to determine which one vlll fly their
Stinson monoplane from Honolulu to
San Francisco next month.
Von Althaus. who described the flight
as a commercial venture, said those
besides himself who might gain the
piloting position for the 2.100-mile trip
were: Miss Victorine Lederer, 25,
licensed aviatrix, who arrived here re
cently from Roosevelt Field, N. Y.; Roy
Metz and J. V. Hyde, who have been
overhauling the ship, and Hudson
Mead, until recently one of the pro
prietors of the San Jose Airport.
Von Althaus, who has had IS years’
flying experience, said it was the hope ,
of the group to realize enough from
the stamp collectors for carrying mail
on the flight to cover expenses.
The group will leave shortly for Hon
olulu with the plane, Von Althaus said.
The ship will be equipped to carry 500 i
gallons of gas. ,
The plane, which has been in use a t
year and a half here for carrying pas- ;
senders, is powered with a Wright J-5 ,
motor and has been completely recon- |
dltkmed for the flight. Test flights are
to be made soon.

Great Men Whistle
; Moron’ Theory Into
Scientific Limbo
Einstein Among Eminent
Who Pipe Tunes From
Puckered Lips.
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, September 30.—Whis
tling. an sign of the
moron,” in the opinion of Dr. Charles
Gray Shaw, professor of philosophy at
New York University, is Indulged In on
occasion by at least some of the world's
great men, a survey showed yesterday.
Over the wires from official Washing
ton whistled the first reactionary com
ment to Dr. Shaw’s declaration of Mon
day that “no great or successful man
ever whistled.”
“Hoover, Hughel. Mellon and Secre
tary Lamont,” said the dispatch, “have
not been heard to whistle In late years.”
In his denunciation of the practice,
Dr. Shaw demanded:
“Can you think of President Hoover
whistling? Can you think of Einstein
or Edison oi'* Mussolini tuning up to
‘Dancing With Tears in My Eyes?' No!”
And yesterday the cables yielded up
the following in rapid succession:
"Einstein occasionally whistles, fre
quently fiddles.”
“Mussolini whistles and has a fine
, ear for music."
Again the Washington wires said:
"Secretaries Wilbur. Brown and Hyde
whistle at times. Representative Garner
whistles, and so does Senator Vanden
. berg of Michigan. Not sure about Vice
■ President Curtis.”
Meanwhile Dr. Shaw was amplifying
- his original statement. Singing In the
. bathtub was all right, he said.
. But whistling—the professor snorted.

Eastern Lines Go About
Stock Buying in Further
ing Plan.
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, September 30—After
a lapse of several weeks, conferences
on the plan tor welding Eastern rail
roads into four great systems have been
resumed by representatives of the Penn
sylvania, New York Central and Bal
timore & Ohio and the so-called Van
Swerlngen lines.
It was reported In Wall Street today
that further progress has been made
toward reaching a complete accord on
the plan which has been under consid
eration for several years and another
meet tog is scheduled for tomorrow. It
was learned that a meeting had been
held yesterday.
In the Interval since the last session
the carriers are reported to have been
actively acquiring stocks needed in
their consolidation program. Taking
advantage of the low prices prevailing.
New York Central added a block of
Delaware, Lackawanna & Western
stock. It seeks the road to give it an
originating anthracite carrier in the
Eastern cold fields and a line through
Central Pennsylvania. The latter is
contingent also on obtaining a small
amount of trackage rights. The Lack
awanna also would lighten the load
on the New York Central’s main line
between Buffalo and New York.
One of the matters which the con
ferences are attempting to Iron out
concerns the request of the Pennsyl
vania for trackage rights over the New
York. Chicago & St. Louis (Nickel
Plate) of the Van Swerlngen system,
along the south shore of Lake Erie.
The New York Central’s opposition is
said to be the stumbling block, as the
Van Sweringens are said to be willing
to grant the Pennsylvania’s request.
The main points of contention in
the latest stage of negotiations concern
all but the Baltimore & Ohio. The oth
er conferees have agreed to the B. & O.
having the carriers it has requested
and the B. & O. is reported to be pro
ceeding steadily toward making the
meiger a reality.
Eleven Passengers and Crew Face

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sep

Dry Law at Reformed
Church Session.

Members of the Women’s Missionary
Society of the Synod of the Potomac, i
Reformed Church in the United States,
were called upon today by their presi
dent, Mrs. Lee A. Peeler of Kannapolis,
N. C., to enroll “every man, woman and
child In the country in a mighty cru
sade for the eighteenth amendment,
personal sobriety and law observance.”
“Let us join in the movement for re
education cf our youth on the need of
temperance ar.d the evils of strong
drink," Mrs. Peeler said In an address
before the society's annual convention
at the Reformed Church, Thirteenth
and Monroe streets.
Stresses World Peace.
“The call also comes to unite in the
movement for world peace and world
friendship. As Christian citizens, let us
respectfully call on our Government to
J assume the stand of leadership among
the roll of nations in a definite pro
gram for the reduction of armaments.”
Mrs. Peeler asserted that, despite the
business deoression, “we come here to- j
day with no great discouragement in
eur work, because of financial shortage.”
Dr. C. K. Stoudt, missionary from
Bagdad, told the convention of his work
in Mesopotamia. He declared “the
door is open for missionary work in the
Near East,” adding that in Iraq Ameri
can missionaries have been welcomed
by every one.
Rev. Lee A. Peeler Speaks.
In the principal address at the con
vention last night Rev. Lee A. Peeler,
husband of the society's president, said
religion Is the only basis upon which
an enduring commonwealth can be
built. t „
“No amount of wealth or extent of
culture,” he added, “has ever given a
nation strength when the religious ele
ment has been in decay.”
Several hundred delegates from the
District and five nearby States are at
tending the three-day convention. Rev.
Paul Leinbach of Philadelphia will de- 1
liver an address tonight.

the “Transltus” will be chanted In com- j

Baby Leads the Way.
According to Africa’s travelers who.
have been in the country frequented
by the so-called “white” rhinoceros,
the young white rhinooeros has a cu
rious trait not found in any other an
imal. It always walks ahead of its
mother. As the cow moves along with
lowered head it guides its offspring
with its horn, which is often laid along
side the youngster’s flank.

Proprietor of Store Confirms
Rumors of Goodwin Miller’s
Rumors that Goodwin Miller engaged
in a fight the night he, his wife and
baby Jest their lives in their burning
home near Joplin, Va., were confirmed
last night by a neighboring storekeeper.
Norman Ginn, proprietor of the store
at Dumphries, told Constable C. A..
Eryant that he saw TJiller fighting
shortly before midnight Thursday, but
that he does net know the Identity of
the other man. The bodies of the Mil
ler family were found Friday in the
ruins of their cabin which burned to
tire ground during the early hours of
the morning.
Yesterday one of two men being
sought for questioning concerning the
deaths appeared st the office of Com
monwealth Attorney Thomas H. Lion
of Prince William County and effered
any information he could give.
He was Eugene Barber, brother of B.
J. Barber, who was arrested Monday
afternoon. A warrant for the arrest of
Eugene Barber on a vagrancy charge
; was not served when he tcld Mr. Lion
that he was In Maryland on the night
the Millers died. When he gave himself
I up, Sheriff John P. Kerlln was con
ducting a search for him in the hills in
the vicinity of Joplin.
Another man still Is being sought.
He is Ben Dooley, the fourth member
of the group which lived In a small
farmh:use about two miles from the
Miller home. Jonah Cole, who also
lives at the place, was arrested with B.
J. Barber Monday.
No Information furnishing a positive
clue to the mysterious deaths has yet
been uncovered.
