Hockaday was booked at the police station under charge of disorderly conduct, and was held for "further Investigation." The 52-year-old Kansan said he came here with the express intention of shining the presl dent's shoes to raise the first dime In what he said was a program to "restore prosperity to the wheat farmers.'1 His immediate goal, he said, was a dollar aand a half.

Even the state could not produce a satisfactory machine. So "Joseph1! car" wu borrowed acatn for the president's ride lhrough the city to Fair park for his speech tonight. The president didn't overlook Frank's kindness lending the machine for the campaign visit here. Frank still cherishes that letter from the WhiU House thanking; him and mentioning the "tender asso- ciations which link thb car lo the memory ot your greatly beloved little son." The day that letter came, promising a wreath for the boy's grave, Frank removed the car from IU garage and drove It home. But he doesn't drive It often. He only paid 5385 for the machine at a xalc in Garden City, Mo-, and even before that It had been in an accident and previously it had belonged to Governor "Ma" Ferguson, "nf Texas. So it isn't a new car the president will be nodding from in his trip through Oklahoma City, It's "Joseph's car."

To reach the residence, bathed by Texas sunseli and star-lit nighU, from the highway, you must cross a typical cattle guard, drive through a crooked road to a barbed wire gale, then down n hill, across a creek bed and up another hill, until you are almost at the Iront porch, Out back, there are barns and a studio, which Elliott plans to use as a broadcasting room In con- nection with his radio work.

Once during his talk, the presi- dent said the governor had given "great assistance" in developing a national policy toward oil resources. CALLS MURRAY REPUBLICAN The president made no reference to Corner Smith, fifth district con- gressman who also Is a candidate for the senatorial nomination. Smith sat on the platform during the speech, as did Thomas and Marland. The president, following up his recent Washington radio chat, de- voted much of his address to a plea for liberalism In government. "AmerlCA needs a government of constant progress along liberal he said. "America requires that this progress be sane and hon- est America calls for government with R soul." At one point, the president was sharply critical of those "who seek office, sincerely or otherwise, on impossible pledges and platforms- people with panaceas for reforming the world people who are not practical In an age which must be both practical and progressive. "Theodore RooKvetl was per- haps a bit rough when he re- ferred to soch people as 'the lunatic Strictly speak- ing, they are not lunatics but In many cases a Hltle push would them over the line."

Journey Atlantic's First Since Lindbergh NEW YORK, July (AP) Hughes began warm- ing the motors of his specially built transport plane tonight, apparently determined in spits of delays due to motor trouble to hop within a few hours for Paris on the first leg of a round-the-world flight to teat the record of the late Wiley Post. The start has been scheduled for late today but, as time wore on while mechanics worked feverishly to iron out all dificulties, ihe take- off was postponed from hour to hour. TAKEOFF INDEFINITE As midnight approached, rain started falling on hundreds of per- sons gathered to watch the start of the flight.' Hughes seemed In better spirits than when he arrived at the field. Then, a stiff south wind was blowing which would have neces- sitated using the north-south run- way, only feet long. Later the wmd ghtng prospect Hughes would be ible to use a longer runway to lift the plane which weighs, with 1U" load, pounds. Whether Hughes and his crew of four actually would start betinnlni the flight to break Post's record ot 7 days, If boon, 49 or wait toBtorrow was m matter of speculation, even with his per- sona] Albert L Lod.ick, president of the SUn- Mn Aircraft Corp., of Detroit. Lodwiclt announced shortly before midnight, after a conference with the millionaire sportsman: HE TRACES ROUTE "If Hughes takes off tonight, and he seems determined to do so, it will be between and 3 a. m., EST." The flights-its coat .in- cluded the purchase of two planes, one of which was discarded the first over the great cir- cle course to Paris since Lindbergh. flew it in 1927, will take Hughes and four companions around the world unless diplomatic obstacles develop, At late as yesterday Hughes was tracing on a map his route front Park to the east coast of Siberia, slight alterations having been mado to accomodate fresh advices from abroad. TO DO ALL FLYING The Inside of the plane crowded by six extra fuel tanks to give it a flying range of miles. Hughes planned fa ifo atf the flying on the Paris trip himself. During the hop, expected to re- quire from 22 to 24 hoars, Ed Lund, night engineer, will oc- cupy the co-pilot's seat on the airliner's bridge.
