Services to Be Held
In Dayton Tomorrow For Orville Wright Ey th« Auoclat«d Pr*»» DAYTON, Ohio, Jan. 31.—Orville 'Wright will be buried Monday be side his brother, Wilbur, who helped him build and fly the first success ful airplane. funeral services for the pioneer aviator, who died last night, will be held at 2:30 pm. in the First Bap tist Church, of which he was a member. Burial will be in Woodland Cemetery here. Dr. Charles L. Sea sholes, church pastor, will conduct the services. Mr. Wright, 78, died in his sleep at Miami Valley Hospital of a lung congestion and heart ailment. He had entered the hospital Tuesday after a heart attack, the second in recent months. Wilbur Wright, the older of the two famous brothers, died in 1912. The 12-second flight of their plane at Kitty Hawk, N. C., December 17, 1903, led to development of the modern airplane. Not only was Mr. Wright the first man to fly an airplane, but he and his brother, working almost com pletely from their experiments, de signed and built their first craft. Going further than most inventors of their day, they followed up their first test with a constant experi mentation to improve their product. They advanced the airplane from a wild experiment to a practical means of transportation. Out of their years of experiment ing came a flimsy, kitelike biplane .of wood, wire and cloth, powered by a sputtering motor that powered two crude propellers. Then on that December morning in 1903, they started their little motor on the sand dimes of North Carolina and with Orville Wright at the controls, their plane began bumping down a shore track made of 2 by 4 inch scantlings spliced together. A few seconds later, man had made his first powered flight— covering a distance of 120 feet in 12 seconds. Tribute Paid to Wright By Gen. Arnold, Former Pupil SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 31. OP).— Retired Gen. H. H. Arnold, who gained his flight training from Orville Wright, paid this tribute to the aviation pioneer today: "In the passing of Orville Wright, our Nation had lost one of its great est men of vision and imagination and one to whom we owe a debt of gratitude never possibly to repay. “We cannot think of Orville Wright without remembering his equally famous brother, Wilbur. These two men as an inseparable team conceived the airplane and demonstrated that man could fly. But it was Orville Wright’s courage throughout the years following Wil bur’s untimely death in 1912 that brought their dream to its fulfill ment. ; » “Although every airman knows that these two brothers had no in tention that the airplane would be used except as an instrument of peace, its very existence has given us the, opportunity to build up a type of military power which has played, does now play-and .will con tinue tb play a vital role ifl our na tional security and world peace. “It was with a sense of deep per sonal loss that I learned of the death of Orville Wright. It was my privi lege to receive my own flight train ing from him. It was my privilege also to be able throughout the years to go to him for guidance. “Through these contacts I gained profound respect for his and Wilbur’s ability and for their sincere belief Readers' Guide Sunday, February 1, 1948.

Wallace is launching ;he Ohio phase of his campaign for ;he presidency at a statewide con ference in Columbus today. The conference is being held ander the auspices of an Ohio Wallace-for-President Committee, ind Mr. Wallace will be the pnn :ipal speaker.' Wallace supporters claims he will draw a large Ohio vote, particularly in some of the States’ industrial centers. - The third party candidate, who will have the indorsement of the American Labor Party in New York, Is going to bat for the ALP candi date for the House in the 24th New York Congressional District, in the Bronx. The election is to fill a vacancy created by the resignation of Representative Rabin, democrat. Mr. Wallace is to speak for Lee Isaacson, ALP nomihee, February 15. Later on the same day, Mr. Wal lace will speak at the Golden Gate Auditorium, in Harlem, under the auspices of the Harlem Wallace-for President Committtee. Mr. Wallace last week announced the formation of a National Wal lace-for-President Committee, to be headed by former Gov. Elmer A. Benson of Minnesota. The organizational work for Mr. Wallace is being pressed rapidly in many parts of the country. Com bined with it is the drive for a third party, whose candidate Mr. Wallace will be in as many states as a new party can get on the ballot. Taft to Swing Throughout Midwest. On the Republican side of the fence, the fight for the presidential nomination is increasing in tempo. Senator Taft of Ohio, will begin a nine day speaking tour through the midwest a week from Tuesday. He will visit Indiana. Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and Colorado. Particular interest has been aroused by Senator Taft’s plan to speak in St. Paul, Minn., the home of former Gov. Harold E. Stassen, who has challenged Senator Taft in the Ohio primary where delegates will be elected to the Republican National Convention. Senator Tift also will speak in Omaha, Neb., where Mr. Stassen already has said he will enter the presidential pref erential primal y and enter a slate of Stassen delegates. Senator Taft, along with other prominent candi dates for the GOP nomination, also is expected to be entered in that primary. He has the backing of Senator Butler of Nebraska', and his strong organization. Mr. Stassen has just concluded a speaking trip through the New Eng land States in his quest for conven tion delegates. He and Gov. Dewey of New York will fight it out in the New Hampshire primary on March 9. A number of the supporters of Gen. Eisenhower in that State have transferred their support of Stassen. Nevertheless, Gov. Dewey has long had strong support there and is ex pected to have a ‘majority of the State’s delegation with him. Gen. Eisenhower’s statement that he is not available and could not accept a presidential nomination has generally been accepted as removing him finally from the race for the GOP nomination, although some of the die-hards in the organization which had been launched for Eisen hower still continue to hope he may be "drafted.” Boys' Club Requested To End Racial Ban E. B. Henderson, chairman of the Citizens Committee Against Segre gation in Recreation, has asked the directors of the Boys’ Club of Wash ington to quit barring colored boys from club facilities. In a letter to the board of direc tors, Mr. Henderson pointed to the high Negro delinquency rate and what he called "economic and social folly” of establishing separate clubs for white and colored youths. The Federal Spotlight Back Slapper, Victim of Own Horseplay, Gets U. S. Benefits By Joseph Young Here’s some good news for that bane of many a Government office—the fellow who is addicted to horseplay. You know the sort of guy we mean—the one who playfully whacks vou across the back so hard you gaso for breath. At any rate, the United States* Employes’ Compensation Board has piled that if any of these characters are fractured, but good, by their victims, they are entitled to com pensation bene fits. The case in question was one in which a Navy Department em ploye “lightly” (according to his version) tapped a fellow employe on the chest in playful fashion while waiting to punch the time clock. Apparent ly the other em ploye felt that it wasn’t any love tap. Far he promptly deposited the tapper into the nearest garbage can, injuring the playful one’s knee. The injured worker, who claimed that his “tap" that started all the trouble in the first place was only a “friendly gesture," appealed to the Bureau of Employes’ Compensation for compensation benefits. But his request was denied on the grounds that he brought the Injury on him self by his “horseplay.” This decision, however, has been reversed by the appeals board, which says in effect that boys will be boys and that “horseplay” frequently oc curs when workmen get together. Stated the appeals board: "The injury appears to have re sulted from a friendly scuffle while the employes were standing in line, or, perhaps more accurately, as the result of a misunderstanding gesture.” And, adds the board, there cer tainly was no evidence that the one engaged in "horseplay” was guilty of willful misconduct or that he in tended “to kill himself or another” by his love-tap. Maybe not, but we can't think of a more sure-fire way of getting yourself “killed eventually than by continually pounding your co-work ers in playful fashion. It’s strange, but some people just don’t like that sort of* thing. No sense of humor, you know. * * * * REDUCTIONS—The Budget Bu reau discloses that it expects that the Federal payroll will only be re duced by 3.000 employes between June 30, 1948, and June, 30, 1949. And much of this reduction will take place outside the continental United States. The reason for the relatively small net reduction is the expected hiring of additional personnel to administer the European Recoven’ Program. Of course, if Congress should sharply cut the various 1949 budget requests, the 3,000 figure would be revised considerably up ward. But the first 1949 appropriations measure—the , Independent Offices Appropriations bill—didn’t affect employment adversely at all in more than a score of agencies. And Gov ernment officials are hoping that some of the other Federal bureaus will fare as well at the hands of the House Appropriations Commit tee. * * * * THINGS-ARE-HIGH-ALL-OVER —Even the White House household expenses have felt the pinch of high 1 prices. < In asking for more money for 1 White House expenses, Government officials told the House Appropria tions Committee that the six Wash- ( ington laundries that wash the i presidential linens have upped their prices. * * * * .

Democrats Threaten Bolt ; Over 'Anti-Southern' Bills! By th« Associated Press Southern Democratic party lead ers aren’t bluffing when they threat en to quit the national party if anti-Southern legislation is passed, a Mississippi State Senator said yes terday. John H. Culkin of Vicksburg said "we are not leaving the party. It appears to have left us.” "Not since Mississippi seceded from the Union 89 years ago have people been more deadly in earnest on any subject." Gov.
