Although preparations had been made for the handling of a orowd of 26,090, fewer than 500 attended, many pereone bein? kept away by the rain, which fell throughout the services. The small number who attended, together with the Incessant drizzle, prevented the funeral from being ?o Impressive as it otherwise would have been.

Washington, Sept. I".---Procurement of a dirigible of the Zeppelin type ? from (Jerrnany if postlble-?to replace the lost ZR-2, and continuation of con struction of the ZR-1, row building it Lakehurst, was recommended to-day to President Harding and Secretaries Pen by and Weeks by tho offictaj National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics. Continued production of helium, new gas used for inflating airships, also was recommended by the committee, which is composed of army and navy pt* fleers, Charles 1'. Marvin, chief of the Weather Bureau; Orville Wrisht and Dr. Charlea D. Wa'.cott, secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, chairman. The committee's recommendations were formulated at a meeting September j IS at which the destruction of the ZR-2 in its relation to the. future of airships In the American naval and military es tablishment was taken up. The com mittee held: "That tho development of rigid airr I ships should be continued In this coun I try; that sufficient funds should be de | voted to experimental work for obtain ing definite informaUon regarding th?. strength, qualities of materials and gir ders used in the construction of airshisi and for the development and cliocklu* of the theories used In the general d>?? sign of airships; and that the present programme for the construction of tile ail-ship ZR-1 and for tho production of helium should be prosecuted with re newed vigor, and thai. 1110 Government of the United States should obtain a recent typo of German rigid airship. preferaVily directly from Germany, to fill the vacancy In the programmes caused by the loss of the ZR-2. ' The committee declared "the prpsent programme of the United States in re gard to the construction of rigid airships can be regarded only as extremely con servative." . ... Referring directly to the loss of the ZR-2 the committee Informed th<j Presi dent and his Cabinet that "the conclu sion is certain that whatever was the primary cause of the accident the use of hydrogen was a contributing cause to the great loss of life." The commit tee then pointed out that America pos sess the only large store of helium which is known to exist, by the use of which airships can he more successfully developed by America than by any other country for commercial as well as military purposes, "It would be contrary to the true American spirit to abandon a eossrrva tive programme because of one serious aocident, when It is possible by studying the cause of the accident to profit by any mistakes that were made." The committee pointed to development of rigid aircraft toy Germany and Eng land, declaring: "Rigid alr'hips have been primarily developed in Germany as a result of per sistent efforts which eould not be damp ened by failure comparable to the recent dsstruction of the ZR-2, and the prac tical application at such airships to use ful purposes of war and of peace lias been exemplified toy tho Germans. "The English have prosecuted the de velopment of rigid airships with consid erable success, patterning after German designs." NOVA SCOTIA LOSES TAX. Claim Against Umf Estate Set Aside. Haum*, N.
