Development at Kingman Island
In the Anacoetla River aa a landtag
field for light airplane* waa urged
last night by speakers for the Wash
ington Aviation Planning Council, a
group formed here to plan aviation
improvements. ’
Rufus C. Phillip*, Jr, airport con
sultant for the council, declared the
Kingman Island site near Beaming
road Is the only one available which
fulfills requirements.
The talks were made over Station
WGAY on the subject of “what will
pilots on Skyway No. 1 use for an
airport here?”
Meanwhile, the Washington Board
of Trade announced that John
Reilly, president, and two other of
ficers will participate in survey
flights preparatory to the marking
of “Skyway No. 1” for private
pilots between Washington and Los
Angeles. The Chamber of Com
merce there Is co-operating with the
Washington board sponsoring the
2,000-Foot Runway Feasible.
Mr. Phillips said the Civil Aero
nautics Board, the council and
others interested have agreed that
a 2,000-foot runway with suitable
approaches can be built on Kingman
Island at reasonable co6t. The Island,
which belongs to the Government,
now Is used as a dump area for the
Army Engineers. It Is 4 miles
from downtown Washington.
Taking part in the radio interview
were orant aieuer, vice cnairman
of the council, and Jean Rom How
ard, staff assistant to the personal
aircraft council, Aircraft Industries
Association. The speakers pointed
out that the District has been al
located 1132,964 by the Government
for airport improvements, but is re
quired to match the sum before it
can be used.

Empire Parley Favors
Jap Demilitarization
By th« Associated Press
CANBERRA, Australia, Aug. 28
Delegates of the eight British Com
monwealth countries to the empire
conference on the Japanese treaty
favor total disarmament and de
militarization of Japan, a conference
report said today.
“The discussion of disarmament
and demilitarization of Japan was
completed at the morning session of
the Canberra conference,” the re
port stated. “The delegates ex
pressed the view that Japan should
remain completely disarmed and de
militarized; that all armament
manufacture should- be forbidden
and that internal order should be
maintained by a non-military police
“The conference examined in de
tail measures that might be neces
sary to ensure that the Japanese
should not be permitted at present
to conduct research in the field
of atomic energy or to develop or
use atomic energy.”
The report also said the delegates
suggested Japan “should renounce
all rights and interests, both public
and private, located outside Japan.”
Four-Masted Schooners
Built in U. S. Destroyed
By the Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 28.—Three
of the last four-masted schooners
built in the United States went up
in smoke yesterday.
The ships, moored along a row
of pilings at the foot of a Delaware
River wharf for nearly 20 years and
reduced to empty hulks, were or
dered destroyed by the bureau of
navigation of the State Department
of Forests and Waters as a navi
gation menace.
The three vessels—the Francis J.
McDonald, the Marie F. Cummins
and the Albert D. Cummins—were
built in Beaumont, Tex., during
World War I demand for ships.
Workmen sprayed the 189-foot
hulks with kerosene for the past
two weeks and the decaying wood
was ignited today. >
