HINDENBURGON WAY TO AMERICA Record Crossing Seen With Perfect Weather for Ocean Flight. By LOUIS P. LOCHNER (CopyrlStl'. 1930, by The Anoctated P«»« ABOARD THE ZEPPELIN HINDENBURG, ENROUTE TO AMERICA--The giant German airship Hindenburg, averaging 75 miles an hour, struck out across the noith Atlantic Thursday on its first flight to America. The great Zeppelin passed Land s End, the cape of southwest England, at 6:05 a. m., (12:05 a. m., CST), and 40 minutes later crossed the Scilly islands of£ the English coast. Bright sunshine and clear skies prevailed. Many of the 51 passengers remained awake all night to see the airship fly over the mouth of the Rhine and later glimpse the Isle of Wight, in the Eng-usn channel off the southern coast of England, just as the sun rose. Turn Slightly South. Turnin" slightly to the south after passing the Scilly islands at an altitude of 2,500 feet, the Hindenburg afforded its passengers the spectacle of a carpet of white clouds beneath the ship like a vast expanse of glaciers. Dr. Hugo Eckcner, president ot the Zeppelin company and traveling on the Hindenburg, said his favorite turn on the bridge was from midnight to 4 a. m. (Capt Ernest Lehmann is actually in command of the Hindenburg but Dr. Eckener is Ms superior and can give orders.) The zeppelin, bearing 107 persons-3,300 pounds of freight and 20 sacks of mail, headed on a course over the English channel, southwest to the Azores and then west to Lakehurst, N.-J. Record Trip Seen. So favorable were conditions for Italian Hero Further details were withheld, the department asserting that the text would be made public on May 13. The announcement said, however: Expansion Opportunities. "It will provide improved opportunities for the expansion of trade in products of special interest to each country and will enable the commercial interests concerned to develop these opportunities without fear of the sudden and. unforeseen changes to which they are exposed in' the absence of such an agreement. "In addition to duty concessions and quota increases by France and duty concessions by the United States on carefully selected lists of products, the agreement provides in general for substantial - most fav- 9red. nation- ..treatment., by each country of the commerce of the other." r ; · ; . - ..;.. .. . -.-.. Judge Evans Praised as Good Citizen and Jurist at Funeral in Hampton HAMPTON--Tributes to a venerable citizen and distinguished supreme court judge, William D. Evans, were paid here Thursday afternoon in a sermon, a eulogy, his beloved music and in silent reverence by many as last rites were conducted for the one who held the record for length or service on the Iowa supreme court. Many officials from out of town, inclduing judges who had served with Judge Evans, joined local residents in paying respects to him. Services were conducted at 2 o'clock m the Congregational church. The Rev. H. Lee Jacobs, pastor of the church, gave the funeral sermon on "The Power of a Good Life." He used as his text, Revelations 14:13. "I heard a voice saying, blessed are the dead who die in the Lord. Their works shall follow after them." Had Talents for Many. Mr. Jacobs declared, in his sermon, "that the power of a good life lies largely in three things. In speaking of the first, accessibility, he pointed out that Judge Evans wag accessible to his family, to whom he acted as a unifying influence. He was also easily accessible to his friends and his home was a rendezvous for them. The sympathy Judge Evans has shown to young lawyers who are trying their first cases was mentioned by him. Mr. Jacobs also explained how the kindly and helpful philosophy of the late jurist had aided the church in solving many problems. "Judge Evans had the contagion of a triumphant spirit," continued Mr. Jacobs. "His high ideals lifted those who associated with him in any way. In these qualities of human understanding, he made an ideal judge and guide for the paths of justice." Goodness of Character 1 . As another attribute, Mr. Jacobs cited the endless nature that Judge Evans had displayed. His goodness of character and patience were qualities of inestimable value. "We will never think of this church' without thinking of Judge Evans," continued the minister. "His spirit will continue to live with us.' In the church where the service! were held Judge Evans had served as deacon for many years. For a longer period he was teacher of a Sunday school class, returning on Sundays from supreme court sessions at .Des Moines to lead his group. Swisher Reads Eulogy. A eulogy was read by B. F Swisher, prominent attorney a Waterloo. The prayer was offered by the Rev. William C. Cleworth of .he local M. E. church. At the service, at which simplicity seemed to emphasize its solemnity, were several selections, including some favorites of Judge Evans. Helen Churchouse, the organist of the church, played "Av e Maria" by Schubert, at the beginning of the service, the largo movement from "New World Symphony" by Dvorak and a Welsh song, "All Through the Night" after the benediction. Mrs. Brewster Woodburn, leader of the choir, sang as a solo a song that was a favorite of Judge Evans. This was the' Welsh song, "All Through the Night." Judge Evans' parents were Welsh. Hymns Are Sung. The women's octet of the Congregational church sang two favorite hymns of Judge Evans. These were "Abide With Me" and "Oh. Love That Will Not Let Me Go," the latter having been sung a few weeks ago when Judge Evans remarked on its beauty. Pallbearers were C. Cox and William Reilly, Des Moines attorneys who are associated with Judge Evans' son, Don, in Des Moines Judge S. A. Clock of Hampton Judge G. T. Garfield of Ames Mayor Joe Sikkema of Hampton who is a deacon in the church, and D. W. Mott, also on the church board. Ushers were Attorneys D. H Mallory, Gerald Leming and A. J Hobson. "Business houses and the court house were closed during the fu neral ceremonies. The same sim plicity that marked the services in the church were planned for interment rites at the local cemetery. Judges Are Present. Among notables attending the services were all the supreme court ustices except the chief justice, who is in Washington. Supreme court was dismissed for the day, as were district courts. Congressman John W. Gwynne of Waterloo, attorneys and judges from this and other judicial districts, were also present. All of the family was here except John, who is seriously ill in Eugene, Ore., and a brother, Edward, tf Williamsburg, who is also ill. Judge Evans, who served 26 years · on the supreme court bench, retiring Dec. 31, 1934, died Monday noon after a short illness.

The zeppelin was expected originally to reach Lakehurst Saturday afternoon. _ The luxurious 813 foot ship proceeded swiftly, smoothly, almost noiselessly on its journey after the delayed departure from Friedricns- hafen Wednesday night at 9:30 p. m. (2:30 p. m., CST.) Dr. Hugo Eckener, commanding his third Zeppelin on a venture across the Atlantic to North America held up the start for more than an hour to await the evening cool and the arrival of a plane carrying mails from Frankfort. Departure Was Delayed. The veteran commander said his desire to obtain the latest .reports on North Atlantic weather conditions was another, reason for the: delay in the departure. Rising lightly and easily from its base while thousands of residents of Friedrichshafen cheered, the Hindenburg skirted Germany's western border during the night, cruised up the Rhineland and crossed the Netherlands on the route to the ocean. The great ship was bathed in moonlight on the first leg of the journey out of Germany. A searchlight played on the scenes below, showing swift progress and displaying an enchanting variety of scenery over the southwest state of Surt- temberg. Pass Over Netherlands. Leaving its homeland, the Zeppelin passed over the Netherlands in the early hours of the morning.

They believed the Graf, more "primitive," was also more romantic. Passengers were surprised to House in Stone City, Historic Spot, Torn Down; Materials Used CEDAR RAPIDS -- Shades of Jenny Lind, Tom Thumb and other stage notables of four decades ago were brought to mind in the destruction of Columbia hall, erected at Stone City in 1893 by former State Senator John A. Green, now deceased. The building, which was a combination.hotel and opera house, was torn' .down and brought to Cedar Rapids from Stone City, 25 miles northeast of here, to furnish material -for a modern apartment house. The old ball is estimated to contain a Half million tons of stone. Back in 1869 "Johnny" Green, a hustling young Irish marble and stone cutter, came west from Boston and located at Stone City, site of a large stone quarry. It was not long until he became owner of an extensive quarry himself. He built a beautiful stone house on top of a large hill and proved such a genial host that he found it necessary to erect another building to house his guests, many of whom were stage luminaries of that period. From New Orleans he brought the erstwhile famous Cox brothers, to paint a curtain for his "opry house." The artists sat atop the high hills surrounding the Green quarries and painted scenes that included the village of Stone City and adjacent farms. That same canvas is still intact. The walls of the old building were ·two feet thick, with some of the partitions and cross walls of stone. George Albright, owner of the property, believes it contains enough waters, powders, rouge, etc., in a price range of 25c to $10.00 m We have made a special purchase of Pang- hurn's and Whitman's Candies for this important event to assure Mother of the finest of fresh, delicious candy.

The commander himself, who spoke in favor of Marshal Paul von Hindenburg when the late president opposed Adolf Hitler in the 1932 election and who has- been at odds with some nazi authorities, smiled good naturedly at this fact His Name at Top. "This list probably was printed during my trip to Berlin," he said, referring to his recent visit to the capital to discuss differences with the propaganda ministry. "You see, however; that my name is at the top." Before his North American flights in the Hindenburg and the Graf, Dr. Eckener made his first Zeppelin flight over the Atlantic in 1924 when he took the LZ 126 (later the Los Angeles) from Fredrichshafen to Lakehurst. The new airship has made numerous trial flights over Germany and one crossing to South America, during which engine trouble developed on the return from Rio de Janeiro. State Patrolmen to Wear Black Bands 30 Days in Pape Memory DES MOINES, (.$*--Chief John Hattery of the state highway patrol Wednesday directed' patrolmen to , wear black arm bands for 30 days | in memory of their slain companion, Oran Pape.
