It circled the city four times, Tyred was informed, then straightened out and sped away in a northerly direction. » Tvreli said it was “highly probable' that the plane was the same one which San Pietro and his companions boarded on the outskirts of Mexico City yesterday. San Pietro, 38, la Hated by the treasury department as the cleverast and most artistic counterfeiter of federal bank notes and Railway Express company travelers checks on the North American continent. In recent years, they said, he, as the head of a gigantic ring of counterfeiters, had circulated jnore than $500,000 in counterfeit money. Jose Medina, an agent for the American Railway Express company. arrested San Pietro several months ago. He was convicted of counterfeiting travelers checks on the company and sentenced to 13 months in prison at Mexico City HEALTH TRIPS LABORER WHO MADE DOCTOR Approval Given Road Project Presidential approval has been given a Works Progress administration project to improve 13 miles of roadway along the highway route toward Cross Plains.

(UP)—A laborer's determination to become a physician was revealed today after he collapsed on duty as an interne at receiving hospital. For the sake of his wife and their six children. Daniel Buckley, an unskilled laborer, determined to raise himself and hi* family from poverty by becoming a doctor. Wheh Buckley decided that he must pull himself up by his bootstraps h-* was past 30 and without the educational background of most medical students. Boldly he enrolled at Wayne university's night school of medicine. Several times he had to drop his studies to devote all his energy to feeding his four boys and two girls. But each time he returned to night school to resume his medical course. Then as he neared his final examinations Buckley began to feel twinges of pain in hts stomach. He learned that he had a gastric ulcer and determined to cure himself by dieting. The dieting, he thought, was a good thing because he could hardly afford to eat when there were so many mouths to fill. Last month Buckley received his diploma from the Wayne university school of medicine. That was a proud day in his life, but' he knew his troubles were not over. He was 39. A young doctor must serve a long term as interne for little or no pay before he can begin to practice, and the twinges in Buckley's stomach were sharper and more severe. Not daring to reveal his illness for fear he might be barred from his interneship. Buckley went to work at Receiving hospital. A few days later he was stricken and underwent an emergency operation. Hospital physicians said today that he probably would recover. By JACK NIXON JR. Reporter-News Correspondent BROWNWOOD, July 21—Thorough investigation yesterday led Dr. R. P. Zedlitz of Ballinger to believe his missing 17-year-old son, Richard. has been in Brownwood ever since the family automobile he was driving was wrecked on the Cisco highwav north of here. The missing youth’* whereabouts were traced aa late aa 5:30 p. m. Wednesday. At that time, a theater cashier and cafe operator saw him leaving a movie. They identified the boy by his picture and descriptions. Half a dozen other persons—operators of cafes where Richard had eaten, a trainman and hotel operators—viewed pictures and heard descriptions of young Zedlitz and said definitely they had seen him since Sunday. BELIEVED STILL IN CITY The owner of a cafe on a highway identified Richard as the boy who ate breakfast at his place Monday morning. Another cafe operator in Brownwood said he had eaten twice at her restaurant. A trainman at the Santa Fe depot reported seeing Richard early Wednesday morning, but said he had made no effort to board trains leaving Brownwood. The trainman specifically asked the youth if he planned to take the 5 a. rn. train to Menard, to which he replied negatively. Dr. Zedlitx, whose eldest son, Dr. A. C. Zedlitz of San Antonio, Is in Brownwood aiding in the search, expressed belief his missing son has tried to “hitch” rides out of Brownwood for Austin and San Antonio without success. He is reasonably certain Richard still is in Brownwood. The father and brother continued checking rumors in Brownwood tp-day. Dr. Zedlitz was of the opinion Richard is safe and well, but believed he hesitates to return home for fear he will be reprimanded. He reiterated that sympathy—not censure —awaits the missing youth at home.

MCDONNELL DUBLIN, July 21—< UP)— Douglas Groce Corrigan, hero of a “wrong direction’’ flight from New York to Ireland, booked a passage home today aboard the United States liner Manhattan, sailing from Queenstown on July 30. The Manhattan will arrive August 5 in New York, where Corrigan will be welcomed in the manner reserved for heroes. MAY EXHIBIT PLANE Corrigan was reluctant to end his “party" because he was having a good time and there were a lot of things he would like to see and do. One of the things he said he would like to do would be to visit London DUBLIN, July 21. (AP)—Ha has been getting along nicely in Ireland, chatting informally with the highestof the land, but the tough' of a big welcome in America is something cise again to Douglas Corrigan. “I certainly hope they have stopped being Corrigan-mad when I get back to America," is how he puts it. “A hero by mistake”—that “compass error” that took him to Ireland instead of California, you know—Corrigan apparently is willing to call off the rest of the show. Dr. Zedlitz still could advance no and have a chat with King George reason why Richard should have left and Qvjeen Elizabeth. home in the first place. Trio Political Rallies Slated The “unemployed'’ California airplane mechanic appeared determined that his beloved nine-year-old “crate’’ would go with him on the Manhattan. Irish authorities gave it back to him after he promised not to attempt a flight back across the Atlantic. There were reports around Bal-donnel airport, where Corrigan landed Monday with the nonchalant announcement ‘‘I just came from New York,’’ that the ship would be exhibited at the Smithsonian institution in Washington, A Lindbergh’s Paper Claims Spies Pilfer Navy Planes Games Postponed PHILADELPHIA. July 21—(UP) —The Philadelphia Daily News in a copyright story today said that five bombing planes recently were damaged by sabotage at the naval aircraft factory here. The news said that G-men and counter-espionage officers were investigating. “Merest chance revealed the damage. presumably the work of foreign spies," the article said. “A few hours before toe routine check flight of the ships, a sagging wing revealed that cables and support guys in the wings of five recently overhauled seaplanes had been maliciously weakened or severed—spelling sudden and sure destruction for the planes and crews if the flying craft had gone aloft.” AMERICAN Chicago at Boston—doubleheader postponed, rain.

Henderson, Overton and Arp before going to Tyler, where he had taken the ball park over to speak tonight at an East Texas league game. Walter Russell, candidate for congress, rained out with a similar program last night, planned to speak on the same card. Thompson. In an address at Dallas last night, told voters the state needed a “fair trade act to protect Independent mcrcnants.” MCCRAW, THOMPSON FLAYED The West Texas oil man, Tom Hunter, moved today toward a night rally in his home town, Wichita Falls, and will close at Dallas and Fort Worth tomorrow. He told an East Texas audience last night at Tyler that his opponents, William McCraw, attorney general, and Ernest Thompson, railroad commissioner, were responsible for the ills of the East Texas oil industry. That was because. Hunter declared, orders were promulgated “at the instance and leadership of Thompson, and McCraw was responsible “because orders were permitted to remain in force without challenge from the lawyer for the people.” Karl Crowley, heading for a speech at Dallas tonight, closes his campaign possibly at El Paso to- i morrow. At Fort Worth last night he referred to Attorney General McCraw; O’DANIEL ON SAME TACK “Sweet William was having a good time with his band wagon, but he had an accident.

WASHINGTON, July 21.—(UP)— The Mexican government may send a representative to Oklahoma to discuss with the Seminole India’is their plans for moving to a Mexican “hunting ground,” it was disclosed today. A group of the tribesmen, contending that the white man's civilization has impoverished them, destroyed wild game and engulfed their lands, has for years advocated a return to Mexico, where their ancestors held large tracts of land about the time of the civil war. They estimated that 4,000 tribesmei might leave the United States ll given the opportunity. Families living along Brady creek in the city of Brady were forced to leave their homes today, while the stream threatened the business district. Seven inches of rain had filled the creek to flood stage. Water reached within 17 inches of top of a levee protecting the town and was rising at the rate of a foot per hour at last report. Then came news at 12:30 that the creek had fallen five feet at Eden above Brady, and danger lessened. I Some apprehension, however, pre-! vailed as reports from Melvin, 15 miles upstream, said the creek continued rasing there. Observers here, however, believed the stream would crop enough at Brady to take care of additional floodwater. It stopped raining shortly after noon. Highway traffic continued, but patrolmen kept a cautious eye on the west approach to a bridge near the city limits on highway 9. Meanwhile t he rain-soaked belt around Abilene was escaping serious damages. The weather man refused to commit himself further than predict partly cloudy to unsettled weather for tonight and Friday. At Brady merchants hurriedly sucked their stocks on higher shelves and barred their doors as the creek pounded at the levee. They sighed with relief as signs of a falling water crest came. Part of Richards Park race track fence fell before the waters. The rise was the most rapid since the flood of 1936. Brady’s most disastrous flood occurred in 1930, when damage was estimated at $300,000. More than four of the seven inches of rain had fallen between 3 a. rn. and mid-morning today. Highways in six parts of West Texas were reported closed by flood waters. Tile sUte highway department said all roads leading into Menard are impassable. Highway 290 was closed between Sonora and Junction, 16 miles west of Junction. Highway 277 was closed between San Angelo and Eldorado, by high I water at Christoval on the South Concho river. Highway 29 is closed S north of Junction. I U. S. highway 190 was closed north of Brady and between Richland Springs and Rochelle. Abilene centered a belt of West Texas soaked with rain Wednesday night. With today unsettled, thinning clouds left future course of the weather uncertain; the weather man refused to commit himself further than a terse “partly cloudy to unsettled tonight and Friday” prediction. Apparently the three-inch-plus deluge falling on already saturated giound failed to cause serious damage in the Abilene vicinity. CREEKS OVERFLOW Both highway patrol and the highway department this morning reported all roads open in this area. Between San Angelo and Eldorado water was over U. S. highway 277.

July 21. (UP)— Howard Hughes, hero of last week’s around-the-world flight, held a dinner audience of 500 spellbound last night with an imaginary description of the landing of a Transatlantic airliner of the future. “I look ahead to the day,” he said, “when you will look out of a skyscraper window and see a ship, a great ship, perhaps not as large as the Queen Marie, but larger than some of the ships that are plying the Atlantic today. The ship will not be In the water. It will be just a few feet above the surface, gliding between two rows of buoys marking one of the landing paths across New York harbor from which all other craft will be excluded. "On board this ship, the pilot, no doubt, will be a young man with excellent eye-sight who has showr ability at the art of landing and taking off. a specialist. Other pilots will have been on duty during the flight from Europe. This one will be fresh and rested. “Standing beside him will be the captain, a man perhaps too old to possess the keen eye-sight of his junior officer, but with experience and proven judgment in emergencies, qualifying him for his position in command of the ship. “Thf pilot will be effecting a landing through the operation of controls similar to those now being used, perhaps smaller and requiring less force to actuate. These booster controls will be necessary because the large surfaces to be handled will need either hydraulic or electric power governed by the pilot’s controls. “Ahead of the pilot on the instrument board will be many new and unfamiliar faces, one a large dial reading tucessive-ly 4, 4, 3, 3, 2, showing the I»ilot exactly how many feet the bottom of his ship is above FUTURE TRAVEL, Pf.
