Y., June 3.—The Graf VJeppelin rode a tail Wind into the dawn today-en route to Seville, Spain, and its home station 1 . Friedrichshafen. It Is due jn Seville Thursday. Dr. Hugo Eckener lifted his craft from the field h^ere at 9.12 p. m. (E. S. T.) last night, after a stop of two days and a half. He arrived here from Pernambuco, Brazil, and had flown 12,000 miles In 210 hours and 57 minutes when he landed at Lakehurst Saturday morning. This voyage of the Zeppelin linked Europe, South America and North America by air. The veteran commander said his experience had proved commercial ' airship routes would feasible south of Pernambuco, but that he expected to start regular tiansatlantio service from Europe to the United States In September, 1931i iiv his new ship, which ia to bo called^ the Friedrichshafen. His second hew ship will be called the Lakehurst, in honor of the naval air station here. Will Establish Airport. Eckener said the American airport for his transatlantic, service probably would be between Baltimore and Washington.' Splendid weather ^conditions beckoned ;thls Zeppelin to her seventh trans- atlanticvcrpssing. A low pressure area over th«> north'Atlantic and a high over the Azores were-just to the cllrglbile's liking and provided a tall wind which, was .found by sailing north of the Azores. Despite wind gusts of eleven miles an. hour during the Jake-off.ythe Graf suffered only sHgWt delay. The mechanical contrivances developed by the navy for the'hazardous business of moving''such "a vessel out of the hangar coped successfully with wind conditions which might have prevented departure if only man power had been available. Twenty-two passengers wore aboard "when the Zeppelin sailed and more Into the sky to fly over New York, than 1,000 waved farewell as it rose nlohg Long Island and out to sea. It carried 91,000 pieces of mail. Eckener expected to reach Seville, 5,800 miles distant, In fifty hours. He planned to remain there two hours and depart for Friedrichshafen. Thla last lap of 1,280 miles will require about twenty hours. Eckener 1» Grateful. LAKEHURST, N. J., June 3.—Messages of appreciation from Dr. Hugo Eckener to the United States navy department . and officials at Lakehurst were received by radio from the Graf Zeppelin today several hours after its departure for Europe. The communication addressed to the navy department said: "Leaving x the shores of the United States, I wish to extend my appreciation of the aplendld service rendered by the navy-department. It Is such efficient go-operation which has made our flight possible, and which will tend to develop friendly and speedy communications Between the nations." To the air station officials Eckener expressed his gratitude for their handling of his ship and said "we hope it will be possible to return to Lakehurst and renew our acquaintances." The dirigible remained in communication with the air station today as it flew eastward. The first message telling ol Its progress said that at 1 a. m., it was passing Nantucket lightship and heading eastward. At fi a. m., (E. S. T.) the Graf Zeppelin reported Itself about 550 miles due east of New York, according to a message intercepted by the Radio Marine corporation. The position given was longitude 63.15 west, latitude 41.15 north. 4 DEMONSTRATORS INJURED ^ AS MOB ATTACKS POLICE BOMBAY, India, June 3.—Police charged independence demonstrators at the Worli prison today, injuring at least twelve persons. Several charges were made after the crowd had attempted to halt the work of soldiers who were repairing the barbed wira fence around the prison. The disturbance, which threatened earlier in the day, had quieted after the ai-rlval of the police commissioner, who persuaded the mob to permit soldiers to resume their work of repairing the fence, which had been broken Sunday by prisoners. The work was resumed but the crowd began hurling stones, one of which hit a police officer. The police then charged, driving the volunteers from the area. Mill workers who lived nearby the prison had objected to the barbed wire being pulled down in front of their houses and they joined in the llghtmg. The crowd was further excited when a policeman struck a. woman who refused to move. An extra police detachment and a detachment from the Hyderabad regiment of the Indian army were summoned to the scene.

'WINNIPEG, Man., June 3.—Raging forest fires crackled through thousands of acres of Under-dry timber lands in western Ontario today as forest rangers and volunteers hastened to the ai<J of threatened communities. High winds sent the flames leaping across fire lanes and clearings, destroying virgin timber valued at many thousands of dollars. An almost unbroken line of lire extended from Niplgon, the most northerly point of Lake Superior, down to Duluth. . Many residents of the district found their way to safety, but expressed fears for the welfare ot neighbors and friends. Definite report^ of loss of life were lacking. The most critical situations appeared In areas near Port Arthur, Ont., and Dyment, out., from 200 to 400 miles east of here. Fires In those districts were being fanned by northerly and westerly winds. A party of five persons, including a mother and child, reached safety near Port Arthur last night after they had been surrounded'by fire and reported dead. They are H. C. Holder, Joe Zehner, Sam Marritt, Mrs. Marritt and their child. In the same district, a Mr. and Mrs. Mellensky and their two children were reported missing and rescue parties wore sent out to search for them. Fires' <vhlch roared for four days on the outskirts of ,Sloux Lookout, Ontl, were believed under control today after women and children aided the men of the village in beating back the flames. Airplanes which droned over the danger zone, watching for new outbreaks, were hampered by thick smoke. New fires were reported every few hours and fire-fighting crews were unable to reach them before they spread out of controi. SENATOR DEMANDS NAVAL DOCUMENTS (By United Press.) WASHINGTON, D. C., Juno 3.— Senator Johnson, Republican, California, who is leading the oppostiion to the London naval treaty, said today ho is convinced the state department lulled to send to the senate all documents in the secret negotiations preliminary to the London conforence. He announced, he will ask the committee tomorrow to request tho state department formally to supply the "missing documents." Johnson made his announcement after a careful scrutiny of correspondence submitted by the state department in response to a committee request. Johnson's move was regarded as a step to acquire more material i'or his fight on the ( treaty. Secretary of State thu state department decline to submit the missing documents, ho is expected to make a point of this refusal in his light on the reaty. Secretary of State Stimson refused to discuss secret preliminary negotiations in open session of the committee several days at;o, but told the committee 1>» would submit documents hearing on tntim lor perusal In executive session. At that time, he pointed out, the highly confidential nature of some of these proceedings. Meanwhile, Chairman -Borah of the committee, was communicating with tho state department to htain the correspondence connected with the Geneva disarmament conference in 19'27, which tho committee requested yesterday. State department officials today declined to discuss Johnson's charge pending return of Secretary of State Stimson, who is out of the city and will return here tomorrow. Assistant Secretary of State Cotton also is out of the city. , BRITONS DO NOT CARE TO ATTACK NAVAL CASE LONDON, June 3.—In their two attacks on the London naval treaty, the second occurring' Monday night, the big navy group of tho Conservative party, with Winston Churchill as its principal mouthpiece, lias been able to produce little more than a sham battle. What Is more important, these attacks have revealed that Stanley Baldwin and some ol tho other first benchers of the opposition have little heart to criticize the treaty. They realize, for out thing, that the admiralty chiefs were satisfied that British claims of security could be met with fifty, instead of seventy cruisers. Mr. Baldwin is in a serious predicament. Ono vying of his party is trying to drive hlni to espousal of a whole- lion protectionist policy. His big navy- itus wanted him to launch a formidable attack uguinst the London treaty. To try to satisfy the latter ruvolters, he gave his blessings to a motion for setting up a special committee—something equivalent to the American senate's foreign relations committee—to scrutinize tho naval treaty. But it was in an unusually feeble manner that he advocated such a break with British constitutional practice. .(Copyright, 1930, by Now Yorte Sun.). MISS DELL BRIDE OF REV. L V.

The cost of the bill which now has become law Is estimated to involve about $11,600,000, and there was no intimation when the bill went through the house or the senate of possible presidential disapproval. It was recalled today that President Coolidge vetoed .the soldiers bonus bill, and that this veto' was overridden by an overwhelming vote in both houses. Presidents in recent years Have been opposed to financially burdening the country through more pensions, but congress has been willing to take the full responsibility,for the increases. LUTHERAN MINISTERIUM MEETS IN PHILADELPHIA PHILADELPHIA, June 3.—General administrative problems and the reading of reports of various committees will occupy today's session of the Lutheran Mlnisterlum of Pennsylvania and adjacent states, with approximately 500 clergymen and as many lay delegates In attendance.

Eighteen candidates for the ministry, who will be oradained tonlfht at the Lutheran church of the Holy Communion, passed their examinations yesterday afternoon. Rev. Dn E. P. Pfattelcher, president of the mlnlsterlum, spoke at the opening session at Zlon Lutheran church last night. He urged his hearers to go out and fight for their personal convictions of faith if they hoped for victory inthe present day's religious conflict. •'Profeasio nof the Christian faith does not end religious struggle," he said. "The conflict endures while life lusts—spiritual victory followed by a Satanic assault, moral victory closely pressed by the kindling of a new lust, or. mental victory followed by. a perverted mental suggestion." 42 MULES PERISH IN $15,000 STABLE FIRE CARNEGIE, Pa,, June 3.—Damage of $15,000 was caused and forty-two mnle.s were burned to death In a fire which destroyed a stable and barn of the Pittsburgh Coal company In Campbell's Run road, north of here, last night.

SIMPLICITY IN WEDDIM GOWNS Startling Innovations Are Taboo This Season—Coiffure Lends an Added Charm to Bride. nv JEAN PATOU, NEA Service Writer. PARIS, June 3.—When you think of the numerous members of a prospec— Uve bride's farrtlly who prefer their own ideas as to what her wedding dress should look like, it is nothing short of .amazing that the result is ever satisfactory. But as a wedding dress is still considered one of the most important garments in the history of a woman's wardrobe, it is easy^to understand why everyone wishes i't to be perfect. Th'ere are several points to be remembered when selecting a bride's dress. Simplicity is the first and every, detail should be studied and weighed in order to preserve this character. A bridal gown should never attract undue attention or feature any startling detail. On the other hand, It must be expressive of the bride's personality, but this has to be achieved in a very discreet manner. | I think a wedding dress should never evoke a style long past, neither should It be too ultra-modern. Every season I present a bridal ensemble, the result of very careful study. Obviously, this ensemble is not suited to all types so I invariably advise a prospective bride whom my model would not suit to select another from my current collection which will be neither too new nor too original of style. It is usually among evening gowns that you will find a style suitable for a bride, that is to say, one that can easily be adapted to this purpose. Once this is done, there remains but to select the material and complete the ensemble by the ornamentations best suited to the wearer's type. All fabrics are good for a wedding dress, from the sheerest to the heaviest. I have seen several wedding gowns made of lame which were especially attractive, but personally I prefer a fabric that will convey to the ensemble that character of softness, lightness and daintiness, the prerogative of every bride-to-be. On the other hand, too sheer a material, especially if worn with a tulle veil, might make the en : semble look devoid' of consistency, .that Is 'why I usually prefer• a..material with some brilliancy of'surface and some body to it. So far aa the details of a bridal gown are concerned, it is incredible how the judicious choice of a coiffure can enhance the charm of a bride'. This question of coiffure can never be the object of too long or too careful a study. It is almost as important as the dress itself in the final analysis. Generally the coiffure- or headgear is the starting-point of the bridal veil. Lace, is sufficient decoration if,the girl is fortunate enough to be'able to wear real lace. Tulle, on the other hand,'is equally as charming and perhaps more becoming, but it needs a trimming of some kind. A posy of flowers holding the veil on either side of the head is a fashion that suits most faces, provided the right proportions are maintained, both as regards to the choice of flowers and the size of them. NEIGHBOR'S CHICKENS THRIVE ON BIRD FOOD DETROIT, June 3.—Mrs. Henry Jones for many weeks scattered grain on the snow-covered lawn before her home to tide the hungry birds over the winter season. Mrs. Jones noted with satisfaction that the grain quickly disappeared. So she went out one day to watch the birds at their meal. She found a neighbor's chickens partaking of the grain amid a. chorus of contented clucks. SKKK UNTAMED BULL FIGHTS. MADRID, Juno 8.—Now that the Berenguer "transitional government" is undoing ao many things adopted by the dictatorship, bull-fighting fans of Ciudad Real have petitioned that the reforms in bull-fighting procedure be rescinded. They would like to see the pads now used by the horses in the arena discarded, and permission again given to place darts with fireworks on bulls which did not show sufficient mettle. These reforms were made by the preceding government to make bull-fighting more "humane." POUT'S WISH OUSEUVEl).

NEW HIGH RECORD FOR PROHIBITION ARRESTS WASHINGTON, D. C., June 3.—-A high record of prohibition enforcement in the first four months of 1930 was revealed today by the progress report of Prohibition Commissioner Doran showing nearly 8,000 arrests in April. In the first four months of 1930, the 2,000 federal dry agents have arrested more than 20,000 persons, seized about 8,000 stills, and confiscated almost 500,000 gallons of distilled spirits. During April there were 5,912 arrests, 2,074 stills seized, 115,832 gallons of distilled liquor taken, and 376,021 gallons or malt liquors confiscated.. "The April report reveals again that the federal government is doing its full part in enforcing the prohibition law," Doron said in making it. public. "In the face of this federal record, it behooves the states to see to It that they accomplish as much within their own precincts." DRUG UNIT CONDEMNED BY HEAD OF UNIVERSITY \ WASHINGTON, D;, C., June 3.—The drug unit of the department of agriculture was charged with "mal-admln istration" today by Dr. Henry H.

CANNON PROTESTS RIGHT Of PROBERS (Continued from Page 1.) man Walsh, and related to the anti- Smith conference held by southern Democrats in preparing to bolt the presidential ticket headed by the anti- prohibitionist, Alfred E. Smith of New Tork. 1 The committee waived its ' rule against written statements to permit Cannon to set forth his position^ "I don't say I am right," the bishop started out, "but I want to state my views. Bltllne Asks Questions. Before Cannon proceeded further, Senator Blalhe laid down a series of questions developing that Cannon was an official of the Anti-Saloon league as well as the International League Against Alcoholism. Blaine argued that as an official of the league, and not as bishop of the church, Cannon was 'subject to congressional inquiry because the league, as well as Cannon's board of prohibition and social service in the church, takes stands to influence legislation. ' Previously Cannon had testified that the Methodist board of temperance and social service, which he headed, sought to prevail upon Secretary of Treasury Mellon more than a year ago to inaugurate a $24,000,000 nation-wide, prohibition enforcement campaign. Cannon revealed his efforts for "an intensive drive" after the committee produced letters .showing the board's secretary, Dr. E. L. Crawford, wrote to an Alabama minister suggesting 'that the Alabama senators be notified the board favored the Harris amendment increasing the prohibition appropriations by $24,000,000. Walsh acting as chairman in the absence of Senator Caraway, Deipocrat,, Arkansas, also produced correspondence showing Cannon had written to President Hoover regarding the appropriation. One of the letters was sent to Mr. Hoover in 'Florida several months before his inauguration. Mr. Hoover replied 'with 'a perfunctory letter thanking Cannon for information regarding the appropriation, but expressing no opinion; "GOOSE LIVER" BOURSE HUNGARIAN INSTITUTION BTJDAPEST, June 3.—There are many strange markets in Europe, from the second-hand trinket assemblies 'or "flea markets" of Paris to the Ikon fairs of Moscow. And Hungary has its share. In the country there are the .gypsy horse markets, where the peasants go around prying open horses' mouths to look at a. possible "'buy's teeth-. And even Budapest has its curious these ; is the "Goose liver bourse, " the'meetings of which .take SMALL TOWNS TIRED OF THROUGH AUTO TRAFFIC CHICAGO, Juno 3.—The danger of picking out th6 main street of a town and arbitrarily -making it a "through street, as pointed out in recent studies made by the national safety council, has recently been emphasized in several [Illinois towns.. Petitions have been received-by the state highway commission, at Springfield, from representatives of small towns and villages asking that state roads, around which many of them have been built, be re-routed so that the constant stream of traffic may be diverted from their centers. According ' to the representatives, It was once thought advantageous to bring as much traffic intoi the main street as possible, for transient trade meant Increased business. The flow of cars, however, has become so great and the speed at which they travel so rapid that few stop at all. The increased volume has reached a stage where it endangers the lives of the inhabitants,^ ; Even large cities' 1 ,&re now finding that the moat successful system shunts non-stop traffic around the business district to /avoid congestion in the down-town centers. SULAHBLK j-ou NAMK. PARIS, June 3.—The Parisian theatre boasts two luminaries of the same name—Max Trebor and Robert Trebor, the former a very capable comedian and the latter a no less capable producer and director. Recently a long-standing argument as to which of the two should change his name—the thing is obviously confusing —brought to light the fact that Robert had merely spelled his first name backwards, whereas Max had done the same thing with his father's given name. Nevertheless, the matter Is to be taken »o court. NOW YOU TKL1. ONE. CHICCEITH. Wales, Juno a.-A golf ball, driven by Captain W. E.
