SUPPLEMENTAL SERVICE 226 Strongest Is Winner Reed Looms as Can didate for Presi dency By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON June as he is former Senator James A Reed of Mis souri really looks like a reasonable possibility for the next democratic presidential nom ination Due Lo the twoterm preced ent with Presi dent Hoover on his first four years in the white house Dwight W Mor row docs not look r5 like so much of a 1932 possibility at the head of the republican only just enough for a bare possibility to be thrilling However the point is sure to be raised that they are impossible op ponents anyway because both are wet OTRICTLY speaking are kJ either of them Reed certainly displayed a dis position to flirt with prohibition in 1928 and undoubtedly would have done it if it had showed sufficient promise of giving him an adequate majority in the Houston convention To this day wets grow about his at titude there Morrow is on record as unopposed to dry legislation in principle hav ing declared against it only on a national scale not as a statewide proposition c OTILL admit that they are wets for arguments sake As has been recognized hitherto the nomination of Jim Reed and JM Dwight

CHICAGO June 30 The cago Tribune today in both its edi torial and news columns took def inite cognizance of the sinister ru mors that have attached themselves to the career of its slain reporter Alfred Jake Lingle It sets forth editorially that the first report of thestates attorneys investigators which goes into detail concerning the reporters finances would indicate that Alfred Lingle was killed because ue was using hisl Tribune position to profit as it thot j ha was Pointing out the developments re sulting from the Investigation the newspaper says Alfred Lingle now takes a differ ent character one in which he was unknown to the management of the Tribune when he was alive He is dead and cannot defend himself but many facts now revealed must be accepted as eloquent against him He was not and could not have been a great reporter His ability did not contain these possibilities He did not write stories but he could get information in police cir cles The reasonable appearance against Lingle now is that he was accepted in the world of politics and I crime for something undreamed of In his office and that he used this I in undertakings which made him money and brot him to his death Brothers in Air Drop Mysterious Note to Those Below pHICAGO June 30 City Vof Chicago sweeped low over Sky Harbor at 1 p m today and a note fluttered to earth from the two Hunter brothers who

for the 168th time Has Passed Record CHICAGO June 30 Hunter farmers who turned from the plough to the plane onward today in triumph thru the skies piling more hours on the new worlds endurance record they established early Sunday The old mark of the St Louis Robin 420 hours 21 minutes and 30 seconds was passed at oclock a m C S T yesterday Bucking time and tiredness HIR brothers hope to remain

neces sary to remain aloft an hour longer to be clocked officially by W P McFarland and Maj Luke Christo pher of the National Aeronautical associations contest committee The cheers of thousands burst the suburban Sunday stillness at Sky Harbor airport when the plane came thru the dawn with a new record on its wings Half of this crowd had come early and the other half stayed late Sister Cooks Meals

sweepin much but I was thinkin o takin a bath any way an thot I might as well get dirty enough to justify it Surplus Is Not Sufficient Says Mellon WASHINGTON June 30 The close of the fiscal year of 1930 at midnight tonight will find a sur plus of approximately 5200000000 in the coffers of the government and gloomy predictions prevalent for the year of 1931 At the close of business on Thurs day a total of 54151057206 had been collected and spent leaving a favorable margin of 212520000 No large payments were in sight for the closing days of the year In opposing the enactment of the John sonRank in veterans relief bill Secretary Mellon said present indi cations pointed to a deficit a year from now Appropriations for the coming year aggregate about a sum greater than the estimated government revenue California University President Resigns Post BERKELEY Ca June 30 R William Wallace Campbell noted astronomer retired today from the presidency of the Univer sity of California a position he held seven years Robert Gordon Sproul former comptroller of the univei sity succeeds Dr ampbell Legion Chief Makes Reply to Brook hart INDIANAPOLIS June ator Smith W Brookharts attack on the American Legion in opposing the confirmation of Hanford Mnc Nider as minister to Canada brot a formal answer today from O L Bodenhamer national commander of the organization The statement attributed to Senator Brookhart declared Mr Bodenhamer is one that will be resented by more than 800000 Le gionnaires who served their country honorably during the World war and who are now associated togeth er to look after their disabled com rades and to work for the best in terests of our country The unan imous approval of the presidents appointment of MacNider indicates better than words the impression made by Brookharts tirade MacIKders distinguished service during the World war is well known his record as national com mander of the American Legion is an outstanding one and he served the government with honor and dis tinction as assistant secretary of war MacNider needs no defender on his record of service to his coun try Brookharts attack on the Le gion is not unlike that made by in dividuals or organizations that have always been opposed to it and to the men who direct its activities One of the Legions largest con ventions was held at Louisville last fall and there is in file at National headquarters today letters from state and city officials ministers hotel owners and others express ing their appreciation of dld way in which the Legionfaaires conducted themselves during that convention The statement that MacNider hasmade the American Legion a partisan political organization is ri diculous ancj absolutely untrue Mac Nider has been active in politics for the past four or five years but I have not heard of a single instance where he has used the American Le gion as an organization or its influ ence to further his own political am bitions or that of the political party that he was representing The state ments reported made by Brookhart simply indicate that he let his own personal animosity and prejudice against MacNider overcome any good judgment that he may have possessed SOUTHERNTROSS CREW IN CAPITAL Hospitality of Nations Lead ers Shown to Aviators WASHINGTON June 30 flV The capital opened Its arms today in official welcome to the trans Atlantic flyers of
