H BOY DIES IN FIRE FA1US ITALIAN AVIATOR DIES IN BURST OF RAME Plane Crashes, Burns As He Starts Hop to Bagdad 'FI/9YD BENNETT FIELD, New York •OJ.Ei—The spectacular career of Francesco de Plnedo, one of the most daring of world aviators, ended In a burst of flames Saturday when MB Bellanca monoplane crashed as he was talcing off on a non-stop solo flight to Bagdad. The famous Italian pilot had launched bis heavily loaded plane down the concrete runway at 7:01 a, m. It attained a terrific speed, then began swerving under its cargo of 1.027 gallons of gasoline. Once It left the runway, but D« Pinedo, without decreasing his speed, brought it back. 'An instant later it lurched off its course again. De Pinedo strove mightily to bring it back, but had lost control. The plane missed the administration building, where a number of spectators were gathered on the plaza, and crashed against a steel fence. There was a flash of flame as the gasoline caught fire. Spectators raced across the field, almost certain De Pinedo could not have survived, but hopeful that some miracle had saved him. Because of his reputation as an expert flier, no precautions had been taken and only the fire-extinguisher of Machinist Mate Michael H. Beach, who bad trailed him down the runway on a motorcycle, was available. "Watchers on the plaza saw the big plane sideswipe the fence, its propeller still roaring. De Pinedo slipped out of the cabin. The plane, its speed wndiminished, struck the fence again, turned over on its back and its propeller still roaring, burst into flame*. For an instant watchers saw De Pinedo staggering around the machine. He crumpled 25 feet away. The gasoline tanks caught artrssd blotted all from view. Beach attempted to use his fire- extinguished but M«ra»?<2riveii back. fhe left side of his face was burned. De Pinedo's latest project was for the honor of Italy, which he had honored thru many daring and spectacular flights, and Benito Mussilini, who forced his retirement from the Italian air service after his successful flight orer'four continents. "This is an adventure to see whether I am growing old," he laughingly told friends a. few min(Continued .on Pag^, Two) Blue Eagle Is Her Mascot The blue eagle and Miss Mary Hughes are inseparable.

LABOR DAY HITLER PLEDGES FIGHT AGAINST JEWS, PACIFISM Will Liquidate States to Secure United Germany NUREMBERG, Germany <UE) Chancellor Adolf Hitler Saturday pointed his nazi followers toward an ideal of a united Germany, purely German in race and culture, ruled from above and pledged to combat Jetvry and pacifism. While the rank and file of the "victory" convention drank beer, ate sausages, and cheered leaders at every opportunity, there was being exposed a definite national socialist policy, intended to consolidate the Hitler regime along militant fascist lines. Hitler himself disclosed the main features in a radio speech and in a proclamation read before a meeting of delegates to the nazi convention. Most important from the historical standpoint, he sounded the doom, insofar as hj can bring it about, of the German federal states, which Bismarck thot were the pil-' lars of the old empire. Bismarck fought to preserve the states which he united into the empire. Hitler said the nazi movement and a unified nation, would be'the.-pillars of the new Germany and the nazi aim was not to perpetuate but to liquidate the states.

Pownall, information director of the state recovery beard, announced Saturday. The parades and celebrations will commemorate the completion of the state NRA campaign for signers of consumers pledges, «he said. The events also will celebrate the completion of the initial phase of Iowa's part in the national effort to eliminate unemployment Besides NRA parades and celebrations hundreds of Iowa communities have planned customary Labor day celebrations, all of which, however, possibly will be flavored with some of the spirit of the NRA campaign. Gov. Clyde L. Herring was scheduled, to be principal speaker at Sigourney and Justice Richard Mitchell, Ft. Dodge, of the Iowa supreme court was to do similar honors at the Graettinger celebration. At Burlington representatives of the United States labor bureau, the Illinois federation of labor and Mayor Thomas J. Smith, were to be among speakers on a program sponsored by the Burlington Trades and Labor assembly. Mayor Harry F. Bulow, Clinton, was scheduled os forenoon speaker at a Labor day celebration in that city sponsored by the Tri-City labor congress and the Clinton county Farmers'• union. The principal address of was to be given by Chauncey A. Weaver, Des Molnes. At Maquoketa a city-wide NRA celebration was planned by civic leaders in'which every organization of the community was expected to participate. Chairman of the day will be John Huilman. Charles E. Hearst, president, of the Iowa Farm' Bureau federation will be speaker at the Harlan celebration, to be held in connection with the annual Shelby county Farm Bureau picnic. In Des Moines Labor day observers will hear Charles P. Howard, president of the International Typographical union More than 100 ally, particularly as regards the Jews, he said: "National socialism sees and recognizes only one race.

Johnson and his assistant, Dudley Gates, over labor and other policies of the NRA. In an exchange of blistering statements, Cates sought to center the quarrel that led to hi* resignation as assistant T*RA administrator for industry to disagreements over the attitude of the ad-, ministration toward unionization of industry. Johnson, angry at Gates interpretation, brot in the question of loyalty and said Cates attitude was "in violation of the statute which It was revealed that several NRA officials, while agreeing with some of Cates' views privately, decided their course lay in strict interpretation of the national recovery act rather than in imposing their own Ideas of the situation. Cates went south Saturday for rest an drelaxation, maintaining the NRA policy encouraged forced unionization of workers. Johnson declared that early in Ms administration he "determined that it was the function of NRA as prescribed by the statute to maintain an attitude" of perfect neutrality, to lend itself to no theory but to execute the law." An incident bearing on the Cates cage was disclosed to the United we were both sworn to enforfce." I Press after a visit this week of mid-west manufacturers who came to Washington to object to what they believed were trends toward wholesale unionization of industry. Cates addressed them, prefacing his remarks by saying he was going to resign but would present the situation from the viewpoint of Administrator Johnson. Omitting his own'ideas, he lectured them sternly on the necessity of cooperation toward the "magnificent'! aims of the industrial recovery act. Cates speech was received with cheers, not only from the industrialists but from his associates on the industrial advisory board. The objection of industrialists to unionization is not so much against labor organizations as against their leadership. Bituminous coal operators, for instance, resented some of John L. Lewis tactics during and after the Jacksonville wage agreements. They and others fear that thru the operations of the NRA they may be left at the mercy of labor leaders whose zeal is stronger than their business sense. Under strict government supervision, most non-union • industrial leaders are willing to, have their workers organized. However they are anxious to -avoid any situation which might put them i nthe power of their employes without recourse to a higher power.

Three new controversies raised Obstacles Saturday to fair competition codification of the soft coal mines. President-Roosevelt or Administrator Hugh S. Johnson, as his agent, have authority to break the deadlock. It appeared Saturday that a code could not be formulated without some further exercise of extraordinary administrates authority. On another front is developing a battle between workers and operators, in this instance, efforts of railway labor to obtain directly or indirectly the benefits of NRA code conditions. Johnson remained at his hotel Saturday but is in touch-with the bituminous coal situation and is understood to be prepared to act when necessary.

The great concourse of convention hall still was echoing with thunderous applause given James Roosevelt, son of the president, who had just arrived. Holzworth, a former lyceum lecturer on Alaskan subjects and president of the National Association of Wild Life Conservationists admitted he once had been a republican candidate for congress but explained he "worked hard for President Roosevelt." He blamed "political enemies" for his expulsion and said he planned to seek reinstatement. Young Roosevelt made a short unscheduled speech, saying he ''was not from Washington, but came from Boston." "I also have a set speech," he said, "but that's for tomorrow. "I know we want to discuss our own problems—and believe me, as national treasurer I have plenty of them.

"Sworn statements are now in the hands of General Johnson's representative in St. Louis." Denial that the company had violated the code was made by G. B. Low, manager of the Chevrolet plant here. "All I have to say is my company has been living up to the code," he stated. Nearly 3.000 of the 3.500 employ- es of General Motors and Fisher Body company here have signed union cards, union officials said, and almost 2.700 pay union dues.
