This is the statement made by •.R. A. Hayes, Indianapolis Branch Manager after compiling the "ra= turns for the month. "And the strangest part of this achievement, "Mr. Hayes pointed out, "is that our record for March would have been even greater had the supply of cars been able to -keep pace with demand. . - "Actually, the public had us • 'hanging on the ropes for awhile until our factory production finally reached the 6,000 a day figure. In my years with the Ford Motor Company, I have never ex- perlen'ced such, enthusiastic public support of the Ford car.

Washington, April 4.—Plans to obtain this summer return of .the airplane in which the Wrights made : the first heavier-than-air flight were'jeopardized today .by a leak at the Smithsonian Institution. A pamphlet now in preparation wa--, calculated to end j dispute over invention of the airplane and repatriate the Wright machine from England, the United Press was reliably informed. Smithsonian 'Institution officials denied a pamphlet was being prepared, objecting at first that the report was "unauthorized" and later that it was not true. • The exhibition place of the Wright airplane will depend upon Orville Wright, survivor of the brothers who first achieved flight. His word is final. The pamphlet was being written without O'rville Wright's knowledge. Although it was intended to meet objections made by the flier to exhibition of the plane in tho United States, current publicity may raise new issues. The present effort to regain the Wright machine from London, goes back to Dec. 17, 1933, National Aviation Day which was the 30th anniversary of the Wright's Kitty Hawk, N.' C., ascent. Dr. Charles G. Abbot, Smithsonian secretary, said then he was eager to adjust the misunderstanding which arose years ago when the Institution gave tp the flying machine of Samuel P. Langley recognition which many considered should not nave been accorded the Wright's craft. Abbot was not responsible for that action. The plan as outlined here was to submit the .completed pamphlet to Wright in a. month or so. It was expected to satisfy the nation's senior aviator and to obtain return of the airplane to this country, possibly this summer. Several efforts have been made to regain the Wright plane. The latest of these, was selection of Col. Charles A. Lindbergh as mediator after correspondence between Orville Wright and Dr. Abbot. So hopeful were Smithsonian officials that the new approach would persuade Wright to relent that thought had been given to the spot to be assigned the Kitty Hawk relic if it were returned and permitted to go to the Smithsonian.

Houston, Tex.; April 4.—Texas Rangers. today investigated talcs of medieval torture emanating from retrieve prison! farm .where convicts were said to 'have mutilated their own bodies to escape the brutality of guards on the "hoe" squad. Gov. James V. Allr'ed last night ordered Ranger C'apt. Fred Ale- Daniel to go to the prison farm in response to a telegram from W. A. Boyett, member of the state prison board. Boyett said he and three other hoard members found that convicts were "maiming themselves by cutting their legs off" to escape "brutality practiced on them by guards in the field."

The Wright plane would replace it in the premier aviation position. The Smithsonian would pay freight costs from England to the United States, if Wright, would accept. The United Press was informed the pamphlet would contain: 1. A description and drawing of the Langley plane. 2. Wright's criticism of the original Langley plane description. 3. Comment by Lindbergh. The plan was to place the pamphlet in Smithsonian files if Wright approved It as a. final record of the early,development of heavier-than-alr flight. i amputations resulted in some Negotiations between the com- ca * es - Cording "> ^ invest!^- tors. The board members saw two convicts cutting thcmsoKcs with axes, they said. The prisoners CK- I plained they were "marked for I punishment," having been transferred to the "hoe" miund to work in the fields, where all reports of brutality originated. Capt. I. K.

Dill Diilanoy, Houston prison hoard menihi!.-, disclosed they had received a letter from a convict which said i:i part: "You board members ought to see these beatings.
