Hopeful for Five Power Naval Treaty LIMITING ALL TYPES OF WARSHIP OBJECT FOR LONDONPARIIY Pre-Conference Discussion Ob- stacles Not Recognized As Insurmountable HOOVER WILL GUllfe POLICY America Wants Restriction Without Endangering Re public's Security By BYRON PRICE Washington, Jan. 6.—(A*) —The basts considerations which are to guide American diplomacy at the London naval conference, now definitely es tablished after weeks of preparation, are directed toward the original ideal of a treaty signed by all five of the great sea powers, limiting every type of warship. President Hoover’s final consulta tions with the American delegates, who leave next Thursday for London, are taking into account the obstacles which have arisen since the pre-con ference discussions began, but in no case are these obstacles recognized as insurmountable. The delegation looks hopefully to ward French signature of the pro posed treaty. Disclosure over the week-end that the French statesmen are willing at least to limit construc tion in the near future is taken as a most promising aign after the recent strong pronouncement of French na tional policy. The Americans will go to London holding to the faith it will be possible to translate this promise into actual treaty terms. To Adjust iap Demands The American plan also forsees a way of adjusting the cruiser demands of Japan on a basis satisfactory to all concerned, and it almost takes for granted the troublesome details of parity between the United States and Great Britain can be reduced to terms regarded as mutually accept able. The delegates will communicate freely with the white house as the conference proceeds, and Mr. Morrow himself will remain in a position to guide instantly the important decis ions of American policy. Such parting guidance as the presi dent can give at the present stage will be imparted to the delegates tomor row at a white house breakfast.

YOUTH’S BURNING BODY FOUND SPRAWLED IN FLAMING AUTO Liquor Racketeers Blamed For Assassination And Crema- tlon Near Chicago CORPSE RESTS ON ALKY TINS Think Man Sacrificed On Pyre As Warning To Those Tree passing On Racket Stcger, 111., Jan. 6.—(A») The liquor racket was blamed today for the death of a youth whose burning body was found yesterday sprawled inside a flaming automobile. Two highway policemen, patrolling a road near Steger, a Chicago sub urb, heard an explosion and saw the glow from the pyre, half a mile across the countryside. Hastening they found the crematory fire outside Hawes wood, the estate of Joseph B. Hawes, Chicago manufacturer. Inside the sedan was the body, piled on eight five-gallon cans; rivu lets of flaming alcohol trickled from the cans across the roadway. Identification of the body was im possible as the head and shoulders were burned nearly crisp; of the clothing t'ie youth wore, only a rem nant of a c'.enlm coverall was left. Clues were few—six keys on a ring and an engine number provided po lice with the best chances to strive the mystery. Police believe the youth was dead before burned; they pointed to his cremation as intended to be a warn ing to others who might encroach on the gangland preserves of rivals. A post-mortem disclosed a bullet wound in the back of the head while in the roadway, close behind the car, was a patch of blood. In recon structing the bizarre crime, police be lieve the youth was pulled from the car by his rivals and shot to death; then the car and clothing were sat urated with gasoline and alcohol and the. body tossed onto the back seat of the sedan. The explosion was attributed to the alcohol still in the cans when the pyre was set ablaze.

Lindbergh was here today to inspect his new, secretly built monoplane, which was built to “stay up all night.” That was the way Lindbergh de scribed it yesterday when asked the reason for its unusually large fuel tanks, which hold 450 gallons of gaso line. For want of a better name the new plane had been dubbed “The Flying Gas Tank." Colonel and Mrs. Lindbergh ar rived yesterday from Kingman, Ariz., completing a leisurely transcontinen tal flight. Colonel Lindbergh inspect ed fields and equipment of the Trans continental Air Transport Line en route. Rumors that Lindbergh’s new monoplane, recently built here, would be used for a long non-stop flight were laid at rest when the Colonel said the extra capacity fuel tanks were provided for the purpose of “staying up over night” or for over night trips to out-of-the-way places. f Shades of the West! * | ‘Cow Town’ Charged j | With Bovine Cruelty | Afton, Wyo., Jan. 6.— (JP) —Way out here in the once wild and wooly west where the word “cowpuncher” was originated—and for good reason— they now convict and fine entire towns for cruelty to a cow.

Eyes catch striking colors, stream lining and low-hung bodies. But half the story of the new Monarchs of the road lies concealed beneath hoods where engineers have centered their talent. Sixteen cylinders are introduced for the first time in American automo bile history; there are more eights than sixes; and where cylinders have not been added there often are larger bores or more compression. Sixes Become Eights Four cars, formerly powexfed by six-cylinder motors, appear as eights. Two are additions to lines of sixes, but the others are eights exclusively. Engine noise has been reduced and isolated in many instances so it may not be carried back to passengers. Aviation design influences not only motors but bodies. Where smooth curves and smart lines reflect hid den power and less air resistance. Two front-wheel-drives, taking part for the first time in the annual fash ion parade, are extremes in display ing ground-hugging, air-piercing trends. Units Succeed Parts All models present units, rather than a succession of parts fastened together. Fenders flare naturally from the bodies, many of which are of mono-piece construction. Wheels are smaller. Some bodies are not only “air minded” but follow architectural styles, patterns being taken from modern skyscraper effects, with per pendicular limes and recesses. Shat ter-proof glass is of more general use, as is four-speed transmission. There are more cars equipped with radio, “finger control” of starters, lights, and heated windshield cleaners.

The other piloted by Pat Reid and carrying Mechanics William Hughes and Jim Hutchinson, failed to land at either Nome or Nulato. Third Smashed Up The third of the big cabin planes was smashed up in an attempt to take off for Nome several days ago. Two open cockpit planes operated by pilots Joe Crosson and Harold Gillam, American flyers, who man aged to reach North Cape, Siberia, from Nome recently, were held down because the weather of northeastern Siberia made flying impossible. Eielson and Borland disappeared while flying from Teller to the fur trading ship Nanuk, frozen, in the ic near North Cape.
