WASHINGTON, April 8. UP)-Lieutenant Commander Charles E. Hosendahl, who knows more about airships in fair sailing and disaster than any other American, today was named the first skipper of the navy's new queen of the skies, the dirigible ZRS-4, better known as the Akron. r Rogendahl was ordered to the naval .air station at Lakehurst, N. J., April 4.5, to begin, assembling a crew for the new airship from the personnel trained aboard the Los Angeles, the dirigible given to this country by Germany under the treaty of Versailles. Shenanclonh Survivor. Rosendaht is a survivor of the Shenandoah disaster and was for three years captain of the Los Angeles. The Akron, named for her birthplace, will be by far the largest flying craft in the world, with a cubical content two and a half times that of the Los Angeles, nearly, double ; that of the Graf Zeppelin and 35 per cent larger than that of Great Britain's ill- starred R-10I, which crashed in Prance last year. RosendaM is now In Washington, where he has been on duty with the naval bureau of aeronautics since July, 1930. ~ American Expert. He Is 38. Largely because of hi3 intensive study during the last eight years and a practical experience probably without parallel in Its range and thoronesa, he is generally recognized as this country's lighter-thah-alr aviation expert. His new command Js considered the supreme achievement of the airship builders. Altho the length, 785 feet, is only 9 feet more than the Graf Zeppelin, her diameter is a third larger than the Grafs and her cubic measurements almost double. Eight engines with" a total of 4,480 horsepower will give her a cruising range of 10,580 land miles without refueling, as against 4,000 for the Los Angeles and 6,125 for the Graf Zeppelin. She is designed to make 83.8 miles an hour. CERMAK'S LIFE IS ALGER STORY Smith One of First to Wire Congratulations to New .Chicago Mayor. \ ' CHICAGO, April 8. Ufr--Addlr! tiorial political power, already great, has come to Anton J. Cer 1 - mak, "Che immigrant boy" who worked his way up from digging coal in the southern Illinois coal fields to the may of ship of America's second largest city. For eight years he has been almost continuously the head of the county board and now he is the undisputed chief of both the city and tHe county democratic organizations. Cermak, born 58 years ago in Prague, was brot to the United States in his infancy. He is a product of the grade and night schools, his career reading something like a Horatio Alger book. · He served. as a hired hand on Illinois farms, dug some coal and came to Chicago when 16, earning his own way as a tow-boy for streetcars and by carting wood in the "back of the yards" district. Once he got into politics, however, his rise smacked something of the spectacular, the political route carrying him to the city council, the state legislature, the county board, and finally to the world's fair mayorship of Chicago. He describes himself as a "champion of personal liberty" and as a "dripping wet." One of the first .to congratulate was Alfred E. Smith, who wired him that his election is "notice that the gangsters must vamoose." ' Cermak is a widower, the father of three children and seven grandchildren. 400 Chicks Burned in.
