PLANES IN Greatest Flight in History Is a Part of the Naval Maneuvers. INVOLVES 42 PLANES Hop From Honolulu to Midway Islands to Join Section of Fleet. (By United Press). Honolulu, May 8. — Aircraft became a major factor in America's peacetime panorama of war on the Pacific today with disclosure that 42 fighting planes will attempt the greatest mass flight in history as part of naval maneuvers. The flight will involve 200 officers and enlisted men. The mighty armada is scheduled to takeoff at a. m. tomorrow for a 1,200- mile hop to Midway Island, where t will join a section of the fleet engaged in maneuvers in neighboring waters. The United Press learned from naval officials that Admiral Joseph H. Reeves, commander-in- chief of the fleet, ordered the flight. It will be routine, a mere phase of the navy's gigantic maneuvers in which most of America's naval forces are engaged. Only the bare confirmation that the flight was projected and would be made could be obtained. All plans were as secret as those cloaking a bombing raid in war time. Pearl Harbor naval base officials even refused to confirm arrivals and departures of warships engaged in maneuvers. Even the families of officers and men were ordered to maintain silence. The only direct statement bearing upon objectives of the flight was obtained from a naval official, who, remaining characteristically indefinite, said: "In the near future, our local air contingents will depart in participation in the general future problem triangle bounded by Midway Island, Alaska and Seattle. They "will be gone for several weeks." Indications that the flight had been planned for more than a year were seen when it was" re- Philippine Plebiscite Ordered! From his sick bed J.

Forty-three DonniiB !r a n'r eie n t i n g ell ht ble for Btjoh Passage of PatmanBill Will Demand Sweeping Mon; ] \ etary Changes. IS HELD UNLIKELY Big i Rush in Senate Now to Get Bills Moved for Consideration. Washington, May 8.—President Roosevelt, in a press conference that turned out to be little more than a social gathering, indicated today that he may not wait his allotted 10 days to veto the Patman! bonus bill. Mr. Roosevelt, by inferential answers to questions, made clear that!he intended to veto the bill. (By United Press). Washington. May S. — Sweeping changes in the administration's monetary policy would be made necessary by enactment of the Patman "greenback" soldier bonus bill. Passage of the bill over a presidential veto would give the federal j government another mandatory Commodity price raising lever, conflicting in some aspects with other "inflationary" powers now jbeing wielded by the government. Under the Patman bill a total of $2,200,000,000 of new United States notes would be issued for cash payment to holders of soldiers' adjusted compensation certificates. They would be issued until commodity prices, as measured by the bureau of labor sta- tics, ' reached the average of the years 1921 to 1929, or an index of 9S. At present the price index- is SO. Attainment of this price objective presumably would call for an enforced retirement of federal reserve notes or other currency contraction steps. At the same time the treasury is bound under the, silver purchase act to expand the issuance of silver' money. The bureau of engraving and printing already has run off a sizeable number of United States notes in denominations of $.2 and S5 which could be used for the bonus payment. Larger denominations may be printed under existing law. These bills, together with' billions of dollars worth of other kinds of -paper money,' have been rolling off the bureau's printing presses for months and are now piled high in the treasury basement. Most of them are new bills to replace outstanding, ones and on which the wording is being •changed to correspond with the present monetary policy. While'the proposed new United States i notes under the Patman bill have been called ''flat" and I Continued on Page 2. X". S. Ignores a Protest • by; Piinnnia Over Liquor Panama City, May S. — The United States government has ignored a protest by Panama against the sale of liquor in the Canal Zone, President Harmodio Arias has announced. Dr. Arias revealed that Panama has protested as soon as he had learned that an executive order authorizing liquor sales in the Canal Zone had been signed by President Roosevelt, but that no reply had ever been received. Governor Schley has authorized the granting of licenses to the Gatun and Pedro Miguel golf clubs, but no other licenses •Uave been issued.

Washington, May S.—A review of the administration's monetary policy will be presented to the nation Monday night by Secretary Morgenthau in a radio talk, and it was indicated that he would then supply the answer to many inquiries about steps already taken and the goal sought. Mr. Morgenthau said that his subject would be "The American Dollar," and that he would cover his tqpic comprehensively. "It will be a review of what we have been doing in connection with monetary policy," he said. Asked if he woufd^hecessarily have something to say about the future in an address of that nature, he replied: "I'm not that far yet." "You will discuss stabilization?" he was asked, and replied: "I didn't say that; I said the American dollar." Special arrangements have been made for the address, which will not be before any meeting, and this was interpreted as giving it unusual importance. Speov* lation was general that Mr. Mor- genthau would present with some.- definiteness the course the government is charting. Among official reports current here has been one that the government might raise the price for domestic-mined silver to $1.29, the monetary value set by statute, and restrict Its purchases to the domestic supply, but if any such announcement is to come, officials would not comment. Mr. Morgenthau, when questioned about the silver purchase policy, repeated the mandate set down by legislation that the,, treasury seeks to establish the? 75-25 ratio between gold and:silver in 1 the monetary base. He was asked if the treasury was considering releasing; on* a* broad scale part of its greati yjpP!. stock of $8,725.313,788 In tat «& fort to hasten that end and' XD* plied: . '..-''' "Not particularly, • no." : Next be was asked wheathMvajv move was contemplated to some of the gold stock with « nations in 1 seeking currency bilization and put that aside with the reply: '':. <.
