Commerce Deparlmcht In Fnvor Ewinp Y. Mitchell, assistant secrc- ry r.f commerce in charge of aero- mtlcs, submitted the round-the- SjfS'World proposal with strong endorse- ^|incnt. f&tjndor the plan, the government would Ifjbulld the dirigibles and lease them |to the Goodyear-Zennelih Company, 'their builders, for ?1 a yeaV. Tht Goodyear-Zeppelin organization would operate the service in conjunction with Dutch and German interests. The Dutch group, flying its own craft, would ipcrate bewtccn Amsterdam, Holland and Batavia in the Dutch East Indies. The American company would link Batavia with the Eastern coast of the United States while the Germans would fly their ships from this country to Amsterdam. ?17,000,(HK( Outlay The proposal, designed primarily for development of lightcr-than-air craft, calls for an expenditure of $17,000,000 for constructioh of two dirigibles of the Zeppelin type, one nll-mctal dirigible and an air terminal on the Atlantic seaboard. The all-metal ship would he used in South American service. "The proposal to spend 517,000,000 on dirigibles and an air terminal was developed at a series of cohfcrenccs attended by Mitchell, Goodycar-Zeppc- lin representatives, and members of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics. Dr. G. W. Lewis, representing the National Adivsory Committee for Aeronautics, told the commission: "The committee believes it would be more eccnimical to provide fast in- ter-contiutitl trah.sporlalion by use cf airships and large seaplanes than to engage in (he competition which is now taking place among the nations of Europe in the building of high-speed Hiper.ship.-i for their merchaht marine." Tip Received on Nashville Kidnap Ex-Sing Sing Convict Implicated in Tennessee Case NAHIVILLE, Tcnn.— f/l'l —District Attorney General J. Carlton Loser said Wednesday he had received information which, "if true," will be valuable in solving Ihe disappearance of six-year-old Dorothy Distelhursl, who last was seen eight days ago en route home from school. The nature of the information was not disclosed. A man giving his name as William Strilharst. .'id, of Brooklyn, N, Y., was held at Kjnusport for investigation, and a Department of Justice agent WHS sent frrm Nashville to join ill questioning him. Police Chief C. G. Crawford of Kingfport said SI.rilh.Hrst told him that "he was paroled last February .from Sing Sini; prison In New York where he had been serving a sentence for kidnaping." and the chief added that "we're planing lo check his story lo sec if it'K true. The man admits being in Nashville when the Distcl- hur.'-t child disappeared, but says he- knows nothing about it." Slrilharst was taken into custcry. Ihc chief said, when it. was reported j he had chared two small boys in a res- ' idential .section of Kinysport. Strit- har.st was found in a box car. Continued absence of any communication from kidnapers led auihori- ties to the opinion that' the pirl. if kidnapeJ, was the victim of un attacker. guests at a banquet and community pep-meeting Thursday night at the New Capital hotel, starting at 7:30 o'clock. Tendered by the Young Business Men's association, the banqdct will draw scores of business men irom all over the city to give the team a final scndoff before the harii and important game against Camden Friday night. Although outweighed 14 pounds to the man, Hope is conceded an even chance to "take" Camden. Coach Hammons is famous for devising surprise plays in midficld, where scoring is more easily accomplished than close to the goal line, at which point weight is all-important. This style of play was in evidence last Friday, wheh virtually all of Hope's scoring moves started in mid- ficld. 3 Chosen by F.

For (hose producers holding surplus certificates, three difefrcnt ways have been prescribed for handling of the certificates.

The sales will be prorated among (hose taking part in the pool, the remaining unsol certificates being returned to the producer for use next year.
