Under the common law, such a

the pleader from civil action as
a result of his plea. The effect
of such a plea under modern
practice was the subject of much
discussion among attorneys in

of aviation are partly responsible.
Huge bombing planes which are
known as “flying fortresses” cost
more money and need more offi
cers and men to run them.
The original five-year-plan ex
panded the personnel and brought
in more reserve officers, but the
new flying forts require two or
three times as many officers and
men as the bombers of two years
ago. For the reason that aviation
is advancing rapidly, therefore,
many conservative officers feel
that the delay in developing the
five-year plan is a safe thing to do.

Built in 1856
Its history goes back to 1856,
when the Government bought the
1.58 acres of land, on which the
lighthouse and its outbuildings
now stand, for $371.30. At the
time the lighthouse was built it
stood 1,300 feet from the water
i line and for years flashed its
beacon as a warning to ships to
stand offshore.
Twenty years later the ocean
had eaten into the shore line to
the extent that the lighthouse was
.then but 75 feet from the water’s,
edge. Jetties were built to save it. I
So effective were they that the I
land rebuilt itself until the ocean
is now 1,500 feet away.

CUMBERLAND, Md„ Nov. 30.
Peace and quiet reigned at the
Celanese Corporation plant here
today as a conference opened
which, it is hoped, will end the
three-week strike and send some
9,000 employes back to work.
The conference was held at the
plant, with Vice President Wil
liam McC. Cameron representing
the company, and officials of the
United Textile Workers and Col.
Frank Douglas, conciliator of the
Department of Labor, partici
Meanwhile, several hundred of
the striking workers paraded in
front of the plant, carrying
i American flags, but they were
orderly and there was no sign of
Agreement Reached
Following the fighting of Friday
and Saturday, in which a number
of strikers and police were in
jured, an agreement was reached
today under which the picket line
will be withdrawn and all State
police taken away from the plant,
it was announced.
Major Enoch B. Garey, superin
tendent of State police, who was
booed by the strikers yesterday,
was also ordered by Governor Nice
to keep away from the plant.
The order to Major Garey came
after strike leaders had held a
number of conferences yesterday
and communicated with the gover
nor. More than 40 warrants have
been issued against participants in
the disorders of Friday and Satur
day but have not been served.
Federal Quiz Starts
Another Federal probe of the
strike started with the arrival
here of Bennet C. Shauffler, inves
tigator for the LaFollette sena
torial committee investigating
strikebreaking activities through
out the country.
He came here following reports
that members of a strike-breaking
outfit that has been active in the
