OVER-OCEAN FLIGHT OF U. S. SEAPLANES WILL START TO-DAY NC-1 ancl NC-3 Likely Azores Before Sundown as Weather Is Fav orable Navy Dirigible C-5, Which Flew From Montauk Point, L. I., to Halifax Y.es terday, Is Expected in St. Johns, N. F. This Morning and May Also Start on the Trans Atlantic Flight The NC-4 Now Repaired Makes Trip to Halifax. Washington. Mny 14. The American naval seaplanes N'C-1 and NC-3 probably will bo In flight before sundown to-morrow in tho first attempt to cross the Atlantic ocean through the air. Official reports to the navy department late to-day from Trepassey Hay, Newfoundland, tho start ing point of the proposed flight. Intimated that tho "hop off" would he made within 21 hours as favorablo weather along tho route to tho Azores was Indicated. The navy dirigible C-5 mny also attempt tho long cross ocean trip cither to-morrow or next day. Rising from Montauk Point, Long Island early to-day, the big airship had passed Halifax before sunset and Is' expected to rench St. Johns, N. F be foro daylight to-morrow. A decision as to tho trans-Atlantic attempt will bo made Immediately on the-receipt of her com mander's report of his nrrlval. Tho third seaplane of the trans-Atlantic division, tho NC-4, held up by engine trou ble on tho first log of the journey, caught up much of her lost distance to-day and was moored to-night beside the mine layers Baltimore at Halifax awaiting day light to proceed to Trepassey Bay. Tho boat traveled from Chatham Light, Mass., to Halifax to-day nearly 350 miles in less thnn four hours. Urged by a favorable mile wind, sho attained a speed of M land miles an hour. The decision of Llout.-Commander Head of the NC-4 to spend tho night at Halifax was takon to mean that he had encountered further trouble to delay him. The navy department was keyed to high pitch to-day as the NC-4 and tho C-.. were hurrying northward on a favorablo wind. Until a lato hour it was not cer tain that the NC-1 and NC-3 would not nlso take wing during the day, starting tho trans-oceanic dash. It was obvious that the hour of tho start, in any case, was close nt hand. Again to-day the far-reaching1 system sot up by the department ana tne weather bureau to obtain adequate weather data for the experts at Tre passey Bay worked with clock-like pre cision. At regular Intervals the streams of reports from more than a score of de stroyers along the route; from half a dozen battleships posted far to the north or south of tho route to the Azores; from all Kuropcan points covered by tho British weather system and from the American weather bureau poured into tho station ship at Trepassey to be charted and used in making predictions. Ofllcors believe the most comprehensive weather forecasting ever done has been accomplished as an aid to the attempt to cross the Atlantic by the air. Tho navy department made public to-day a detailed description of the NC boats in which It was stated that they were "a wholly original Amer ican development," tho design having been initiated In tho fall of 1917 by Real-Admiral David W. Taylor, chief constructor of the navy. Tho plan for a trans-Atlantic flight, it was said, originally was formed an a war meas uro to got these giant aircraft to the scene of submarine operations "had the German submarines gained tho upper hand in 191S." Tho "NC" designation stands for "Navy-Curtlss," Indicating that they are tho joint production of tho depart ment and the CurtiBS Engineering Cor poration. They are not freak boata de signed Jor record breaking, tho state ment emphasizes, but a regular navai design capable of CO miles an hour speed on the surfaco of tho seas, of 90 miles In air. Hnllfax. N, S.. May' 14. The hydroalr- plano NC-4, the third of the American naval planes to alight in the harbor here on its way to Newfoundland land for tho start of a flight to tho Azores and thenco to England, arrived to-day from Chatham, Mass., nfter a speedy trip. Favored by a brisk south wind, the seaplane covored tho 340 miles in threo hours and fifty-ono minutes and came down to tho wter hero at 2:05 p. m. Lieutenant Commander Albert C. Head said that ho had experienced no engine trouble and that so far ns the condition of the seaplane was concerned, he might have started at once on tho second leg TO PRINT AUTO BOOKS Cnpltnl City lrr Get Contract Job Totaln 1,045 Montpellar, May 14.

Governor Clement has been Invited to bo tho speaker nt tho graduation of tho students In tho .State Agricultural school nt Randolph Center June 2i. At the samo tlmo the dedica tion of tho dormitory of thn school will tako place, The State Board of Educa tion will hold Its regular meotlng dur ing tho samo tlmo and at tho samo iuu.ee. to "Hop Off" for the of tho flight to Trepassey, N. F., where the NC-1 and the NC-3 are awaiting him. Considering It unwise, however, to risk a night landing in unfamiliar waters, ho decided to wait until to-morrow morn ing. Ho plans to stnrt at dawn. The aviators wont on board tho United States naval supply ship Baltimore for tho night. Members of tho aviation baso on tho Daltlmoro at once began over hauling the seaplanes. It was Just aftor two o'clock when tho NC-4 was sighted crossing tho Camper down wireless station. AVord was flashed to this city ahd the news spread quickly, but before tho majority of the citizens knew that the plane was so near sho was resting on tho surfaco of tho harbor. Tho whirring of her engines ns sho came down drew crowds to hills, roof tops and wharves. Striking the water with a splash of spray the NC-4 slackened her speed and as It passed tho northern end of Georges Island It was barely moving. A launch from the Baltimore took the plane In tow nnd in a few minutes It was made fast to the stern of tho supply ship Tho tired aviators clambered aboard the Baltimore and were congratulated by Captain Cluvcrlus and his staff. While they wero being made comfortable In tho quartern of tho officers' mess mechanics In charge of Ensign O'Connor Jumped to tho NC-4 and proceeded to look it over carefully. They found that tho engines had stood tho trip well and needed but slight repairs. Tho propel lers were removed and placed on tho deck of tho Baltimore, where they wero taken apart, Inspected, oiled and reas sembled. "I took the time at Chatham Bar.' Lieutenant-Commander Bead said. "You know it is a sort of Jumping off place. It was 9:16 o'clock eastern time, when wo left the bar. Wo rose from the water nine minutes before, but circled around for nlno minutes testing our engines. Our offlcal tlmo of arrival in Halifax -was 5:07, Greenwich mean time. In passing tho Baltimore, and 5:11 when wo landed upon tho water which would bo seven and eleven minutes past two, respectively, Halifax time. So the elapsed time from Chatham to the U. S. S. Baltimore In Halifax harbor was Just three hours and fifty-one minutes. "I have not worked out our exact mileage yet, but it was very close to 340 miles. As yet I have not had a chance to figure out' our exact speed, but I took It twice during the trip and once it was H miles an hour and another time S5. I have flown at a much higher rate of speed, but this is the best I have dono in the NC-4 typo of hydronirplane. "Most of the way we had a wind that was slightly off the port quarter at a height averaging between 500 and 1,000 feet. We kept this low altitudo bocause tho winds above would not have helped us along so much. The wind was almost astern. Just a hit to the west of southwest, and It was of great assistance. "The trip was made absolutely with out Incident. Wo picked up each de stroyer on time, although, bocauso of tho strong wind nstern which I had not calculated on, wo passed the first one a little before wo had expected However, I remedied this with respect to the others. There were five of them. "One noteworthy event of tho jour ney was that we received a radio de spatch from Acting Secrotnry Roose velt at Washington. The message was one of congratulation and good wlshos. Tho point Is that wo replied to the message and received an answer in return within threo minutes nfter tho sending of the initial radio communi cation. This occurred Just off Cape Sable, about 20 mles to tho south, I think. "It had been . Intended to make only a brief stop at Halifax and continue our flight, reaching Trepassey this af ternoon, by taking ndvantngo of tho moonlight for night flying. This would have been qulto possible If wo had been able to make as early a stnrt from Chatham as wo had hoped. How ever, minor onglno troubles cropped up at the last moment and our departure was delayed by the necessity of some slight repairs." $10,000 CAPITAL E. I..

And now It Is the turn of the Austrlana to learn from tho allied governments what Is to bo tho cost lo tho former empire of Its association with Germany and her allies In the world Avar. Tho AUstrlan delcgntos who nre to re ceive the peace' treaty drawn up by the allied and associated, govoernmcnts have arrved In tho village of St. German, near Paris, whero they are to await tho sum mons of tho peaco congress lo appear before it. Unlike tho reception given the Germans on reaching Versailles, that accorded the ustrlans had Bomo elements of friendly courtesy on tho part of tho French rep rcsentatlves charged with tho duty of meeting the visitors. On the face of the leader of delegation, Count Rentier was there was a pleasant smile when ho alight ed from tho train, In contrast with tho set faces of all tho Germans when they ar rived at Versailles. It was evident that tho request of tho Germans for permission to go to St. Ger main and greet tho Austrlans had been denied, for no Germans were present. When tho first meotlng of tho Austrlans with tho allied peace delegates Is to take place has not yet been announced. Tho Council of Four hns made reply to tho suggestions Incorporated in notes from tho Gorman delegates regarding labor and the repatriation of prisoners. Three additional German notes have been delivered to tho council, and Count von Brockdorff-Rantzau and his asso elates aro said to bo drawing up fur thor lengthy proposals looking to tho amelioration of the peaco terms given Germany. One of tho last notes of tho Germans, which deals with tho economic clauses of tho treaty, asserts that enforcement of tho terms will mean the ruin of Ger many. Another note touches on tho Sarro valley arrangement,, the transfer of German territory to Belgium and the evacuation by Germany of Schleswig. No protest Is made by Germany to affording reparations for damages to Belgium and northern France, but one of tho notes asserts that Gormanv will not pay for damages on thi?-prlnclplo that sho was responsible for tho war. A member each from the British, French, American, Italian and Japanese delegations has been appointed by the Council of Four to deal with tho objec tions and proposals of tho German plenipotentiaries. Efforts aro being mado by the British peace delegation for the pooling, on the basis of. tonnage lost during tho war, of former Gorman merchant vessels seized by the allies. Such distribution would materially affect tho ownership of Ger man vessels, Including some of Germany's greatest trans-Atlantic fliers, interned In the United States prior to this country's entry into tho war and which later were seized. Poland Is making claim to somo of the warships surrendered by Ger many. The Italians are declared to be landing large forces on certain portions of the Dalmatian coast, who are fortifying tho ridges and mountnln passes to tho cast.

It Is understood that tho First, Sec ond and Third Regular Divisions will bo those to remain for tho d.utles in connection with turning over the area to French control. If the Germnns ac cept the peRce conditions, It Is under stood preparations will begin Imme diately for the remaining three divi sions or the Third Corps to withdraw- to Franco preparatory to embarking for home. The length of tlmo rerulred to turn affairs over to tho French has not been determined, but It Is estimated that It may take perhaps a month longer. If the Germans do not accept, tho plans for the withdrawal of tho Americans, of course, will bo changed materially. General Pershing, when asked by tho correspondent on Slonday what would be the part of tho American army In tho event the Germans do not sign tho treaty. said it may be depended upon that America will do her part whatever that may be.

The 90th Division, consisting prin cipally of national army men from Tex as and Oklahoma, has been turned over to the servlco of supply and is sched uled to start moving for Brest within a week.

Tho equipment of tho soldiers will he shipped out later. In the area from which divisions are being withdrawn a certain number of troopf from various American detachments will be assigned to patrol duty, pend ing the arrival of the French.
