Ofttenel Ros6d6 turner Lowers M&Wfcs' Mark by flying Across Continent In 18 Sours, 44 Minutes, (8; United Pfett.) LOS ANQELfiSS, Calif., rtay 28.- tiolonel Rescue Turner today claimed >'* fl*W record for an east-west flight across the continent. After battling headwinds for fully - ,nalf the-way from New York Turner , landed his Lockheed Express plane at * Grand Central airport last night at 7.45.34 o'clock (P. S. T.) just 18 hours afld '44 minutes after leaving Roose- *elt Held, L. 1. His lime, as recorded by Joe Nik- reht of the'National Aeronautical association, was Just 26 minutes and 58 seconds better than the previous rec- 0*4, held by Captain Frank M. Hawks, Who flew the route in a non-stop flight la 1939. Coloner Turner made one atop at Wichita. Kan. Ufttll he reached Wichita, Colonel Turner said he had met with excellent flying conditions, but from there across th* Rockies and on to Los Angeles, -hii course was beset by strong head •winds and a storm. "If it hadn't been for those conditions I'd have made it here before dark," Turner said. That would have s put him on the ground an hour earlier. Landing in the white swath of giant arc lights, Turner was given an ovation by 1,000 persons who had waited past his expected arrival and rushed forward to greet him. His wife was among the group and hastened to kiss her husband as he stepped from the plane. Airport attendants were ready with a cage for Turner's companion on the trip, Gilmore, a lion cub, which apparently enjoyed the trip. Turner failed in a recent attempt to break the record set by Colonel and "Mrs. Charles A. Lindbergh on their flight from Los Angeles to New York, that having been in the opposite direction, but aimed only at the Hawks record. Turned failed in a recent attempt to better the Lindbergh's time of 14 hours, 23 minutes, for the west to trip. The primary purpose of the flight •was not to break any record, but to gather information on flying conditions - which would prove useful in the establishment of a transcontinental air express service now under consideration. Turner, in both yesterday's flight and the one he made recently from here to New York, flew at different altitudes to study which would be the most suitable for fast panes operating in a regular service. j "We expect eventually to start a | line which will offer a regular eigh- te*n-hour service across the country," he said. When yon see something like this nppronching-, It's high time to pack your belongings and start for some place else.

C., May 28!While the senate considered a measure to build up the merchant marine by subsidies, the house today renewed it* efforts to dispose of the Muscle Shoals problem. Senator McKellar, Democrat, Tennessee, was expected to renew the plea h^ made late yesterday for a clause in-the subsidy bill to deny its benefits to any companies haying connections •with foreign flag ships'. The Muscle Shoals issue was before ' the house again in the form of the Reece resolution to lease the war-time power and nitrate plant to a private concern. This was reported out by the house military affairs committee as an "amended" form of the Norris senate resolution, though the latter provides for government operation of the shoals. The senate foreign relations and naval affairs committees continued their hearings today on the London naval -treaty, which the senate will take up in special session. The lobby committee planned to seek further evidence about the activities of dry organizations. Meanwhile, on the house side, the naval aiffairs committee was scheduled to continue its hearing on selection of a site for a west coast dirigible base. The banking and currency committee planned to pursue its inquiry into branch and chain banking. Now—radiant, lasting; complexion beauty may be yours.

SALT LAKE. CITY, Utah, May 28. —Difficulties of cattle rustling have become enhanced- by the discovery that it is best to examine the animals for darning identilication marks before removing them from their owners' premises. William Woods, of West Jordan, missed two heifers one morning. One of the animals, born during sub-zero weather last winter, had haci its ears frozen off. Woods, accompanied by a deputy sheriff, started a tour of inspection, looking for a calf that boasted of no ears. The calf was found, and Arthur Cook, to whose corral the animal was frisking, was escorted to jail and charged With grand larceny. FACE POWDER ft EW YO R.K MEM PH 'i/ /AN FR.AfMC.iyCQ <M. 1.

(Special to Altooha Mirror.) WASHINGTON, D. C., May 28.— Uvolving plans tor new and sensational legislation to limit campaign expenditures ot candidates for publir office were indirectly revealed by Senator Nye, North Dakota, chairman of the senate elections investigating committee, here todTy. A» the inquiry Into the Perfnsylva- 1325 Eleventh Ave. „, ttrtlf ide*'6f tti* -Used In dealing with Sttch =-F««"I res. indicate? clearly the type 6t 4 he hau in mlftd, •there is every reason to believe that the 1 committee will report to the wto- ute not merely on the fe«ult» of its investigation Into corruption and "undue use of moftey" in elections, bat that for the flrat time a suggestion will be made for legislation to meet the problems. This was shown when Senators 0111, Washington, and: Wagner, Mew York, also adopted this line of questioning. Nye first suggested to Senator Orundy, when the latter was oh the stand, the possibility of a law whereby each state would set a specific amount to be spent in a primary and general ^election by each candidate. The state itself would then pay the expenses of each candidate up to that limit. No further expenditure would be permitted. The objection of Senator Qrundy was that "the less the state has to do with the Individual, the betterj goV j ernments are meddling with them toO SBJBttfoH, *M» was' ttA. mafty ttWh wW wUre.WeWn* only h£ tdMety wotild otcefH* candidate* with Ao nope of wlnnlrtg, «M that the state treasury 6ould not stand such a burden. Replying to this 'Wye brought forth another phase ef the proposed law v This would involve the holding of a "preliminary .primary" for the eiinHna* tion of those candidates who entered merely because the state w&uld pay their campaign expenses. In this preliminary primary each candidate would be limited solely to traveling expenses as the athouht which could be legally expended. The law. which Nye has proposed would thus provide for a preliminary primary, m which no candidate could expend more -than his traveling expenses. With the field narrowed theft to a specified number of "genuine" candidates, expenditures would not, come from a private source, but from the state treasury, and would be fixed at a minimum. This minimum would vary according to the population of the state, according to Nye's notions. •> IN* . W* Ink, mil .

The new prices are as follows: > CLOSED MODELS Five-passenger Sedan . . . $2085 Two-passenger Coupe . . . $2125 Two-passenger Convertible Coupe / $2150 t Five-passenger Coupe . . . $2275 Five-passenger Club Sedan . . $2275 Seven-passenger Sedan . . $2385 Seven-passenger Sedan Limousine $2485 OPEN MODELS Two-passenger Runabout* . . $2025 Four-passenger Phaeton . . $2025 Seven-passenger Touring . . $2125 Four-passenger Sport Phaeton . $2325 (Prices F. O. B. Detroit) These reductions are made because the factory expects to announce in i^he Fall new cars, which, though the same in size and of practically unchanged appearance, will have enough changes to classify them as new models. The new cars, like those we are now offering, will of course, have straight eight motors exclusively. The new prices give today's purchasers a very great price advantage, and also immediate use of the largest selling and most pof ular car in the fine car field. Now, it is even more true—by four hundred dollars ($400)—that you are paying for a Packard. Why not own one? You will never have a better opportunity. 4 -'4 4 Two-thirds of those who buy the Packard Standard Eight give us other makes ot cars. Thousands prefer to buy out of income. Your used cat will be accepted as cash and it ot average value will more than make the down payment on a new car. A S K THE MAN W HO OWNS ONE BLAIR MOTOR CAR COMPANY B. P.
