Railey the Admiral received a dozen correspondents, who volleyed questions at him until the tug nosed the ship alongside the pier, where he said farewells to the many friends he had made on the long voyage from New Zealand. To the correspondents he explained that the scientific scope of the expedition .covered biological, geographical, zoological, geological and meteorological studies and original radio experiments. "The geologists made some important discoveries," said Admiral Byrd, "the real value of which wiil not be known until they have studied their data. TOMES OF INFORMATION "They found limestone and carboniferous material as high as 5000 feet We collected a tremendous amount of information about weather which requires 'further study. It will take four books to cover the various scientific phases of the expedition. The scientists are busily at work on the expedition's ships, and will continue their labors until they arrive in New York." Asked his opinion as to the success of the expedition, he smiled and, with deep emotion, said: "The success was due to the unusual loyalty and enterprise of the individual men. It was more or less like a football team, each playing his part in the game, with teamwork on the part of all." " JOB NOT FINISHED Asked about another expedition, he said: "I am not planning anything new now. I am not ready to talk about that. This job is not yet finished." .

ITo the Editor of The Times: The poor United States Army suffered its greatest defeat yesterday. It was left humiliated and prostrated on the field by. an old age-worn moth-eaten marriage certificate. In delving through old historical documents it was found that Private Red Cagle possessed an incumbrance in the way of a wife. So today the Secretary of War yanked him out of the West Point line-up and sent in fourteen sin&Ie men to replace him. No wonder the Navy quit playing them. You can't beat boys that are doing it "for the wife and kiddies" and not for just the glory of the rampus. This, of course, will cancel all games by Red after he "went matrimony." The whole thing looks like another scheme to discredit the present Republican administration, as Red is a Louisiana Democrat. The moral is, if matrimony aids all players like it did him, Knute Rockne's Notre Dame team must all be bigamists. Yours, The faster I Go The nore -jP'X ZSa.

(Pi Former Emperor Wilhelm delving into one of his hobbies, namely biblical research, has expressed belief that the centurion of Capernaum who implored Jesus to save his servant was a German and the servant was a German orderly. He also believes that the leader of the Roman cohorts, in whose charge Jesus was placed by Pontius Pilate, as well as the centurion who watched the death on the cross were probably German.-..

May 13. (Exclusive) President Hoover's law-enforcement legislative program moved forward today when the Senate, without a record vote, passed the House bill transferrins the Prohibition Bureau from the Treasury to the Department of Justice. Before passing the bill the Senate by a vote of 19 to 53 rejected an amendment by Senator Tydlngs, Democrat, Maryland, to permit the use of only certain specified non poisonous denaturants in industrial alcohol. Amendments desired by industrial alcohol interests, which were offered by Senator Tydlngs, also were rejected. One amendment giving the Secretary of the Treasury exclusive jurisdiction ovtj industrial alchohol regulation instead of joint, control by the Secretary of the Treasury and Attorney-General, as provided in the bill, was beaten by a vote of 11 to 51. Another amendment to eliminate joint control by the two departments over the granting of permits was voted down without a roll call. ONLY AMENDMENTS Senator Tydlngs was the only one who undertook to offer any amendments. A few others, including Senator Couzens. Rroubllcan, Michigan: Copeland. Democrat, New York, and Walsh, Democrat, l Massachusetts, offered criticisms, particularly ot injustice wmcn may be done to legitimate business interests through the dual control of industrial alcohol by the two departments. The bill as passed by the Senate contains only minor amendments to the House bill as recommended by the Senate Judiciary Committee. One of these amendments provides that the measure shall become effective on July 1, next, instead of on the first day of the second month alter its approval as in the House bill. There will be no difficulty in adjusting the differences in the House and Senate bills and final enactment of the bill in the near future is now assured. DO RAN TO REMAIN Wlien the transfer is made ' Dr. James M. Doran. present commissioner of prohibition, will remain in the Treasury Department with the title of commissioner of industrial alcohol. Atty.-Gen. Mitchell will have the appointment of a new commissioner of prohibition in the Department of Justice. Both houses also have passed several of the prison bills advocated by President Hoover as part of his law-enforcement legislative progain. A group of bills to relieve court congestion still is in the hands of the House Judiciary Committee and the border patrol bill is in the House Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce. HOUSE GROUP DECIDES ON MOV E FOR WET BILLS WASHINGTON, May 14. The House wet group today decided to request all members to sign a petition calling for House consideration either of the La Guardia bill for modification of the Volstead Act or the Norton measure for repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment by referendum. The decision was made at a meeting attended by about fifteen, members headed by their spokesman, Representative Linthicuin, Democrat, Maryland. researches. When he was Emperor he was also head of the Protectant State church and as such sometimes undertook to preach. Resuming this, custom, he chose the Capernaum centurion as the sub ject of his Doom sermon, "Luther called the tall man who accosted Jesus at the Capernaum market place, captain," said the former Emperor. "Luther, when he chose this expression, did not know the local and historical conditions in the Holy Land. Hence he used the military expression then in use, in Germany. We now know that the story is that of a Roman legion. More recent researches even reveal that at that time a Germanic legion was stationed in Palestine;" After paying tribute to the greatness of the centurion's faith and Its reward by Jesus in healing the servant, Wilhelm continued: "Germanic legionnaires played a role hi the life of the Master also. On the sorrowful wav to Golgotha, the leader of the cohorts is seized with such compassion for the Master as he breaks down tha the requisitioned Simon of Cyrene to carry the cross. "Under the cross we 'discover a centurion halting on horseback. He, too. was probably a German.

BENEDICT "Times" Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, May 14. (Exclusive) Secretary Wilbur today made public a letter to Gov. Phillips of Arizonasetting forth In unvarnished language the many advantages Arizona stands to receive from Boulder Dam and the fallacy, as viewed from "Washington, of that State's continued opposition to the Colorado River project. The letter amounted to an appeal over the heads of the Governor and the State's Colorado River Commission direct to the people of Arizona, for in its Secretary Wilbur declared bluntly that there are "a number of facts which it is about time that the people of your State should know" in view of the fight' against the' initial appropriation in Congress, and the threat of a court action to ham- MAVY BACKS li SOUTHLAND Hearings Open on Air Base Admiral Chase Favors Camp Kearny Due to Proximity to Fleet Ancorage Signs of Tenseness Evident as Determined Eighty Gets Under Way By a "Times" Staff Correspnodent WASHINGTON, May 14. (Exclusive) Strategic considerations and proximity to the battle fleet anchorage at San Pedro dictated the Navy General Board's recommendation of Camp Kearny, at San Diego, as the site for the west coast dirigible base. Admiral J. V. Chase, senior member of the board, told the House Naval Committee today at the start of hearings on the controversy between this and the rival Sunnyvale site in Santa Clara county. "It is highly desirable to have the base near the fleet," Admiral Chase said, explaining that the dirigibles will operate in close co-operation with the battleships at all times. He indicated that the fact San Diego is closer to the Panama Canal also had considerable weight in the selection of the Southern California location. v Admiral Chase was put on the stand in the absence of Secretary of the Navy Adams, who was appearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today in the hearings on the London naval pact. It is probable the Secretary will not testify in the dirigible matter until late in the week. He is expected to take a neutral stand as between the Camp Keamy and Sunnyvale sites, although along with the Navy General Board, he stands officially committed to the former location, Political pressure from Northern California is credited with having caused him to relax hi his advocacy of Camp Kearny. TENSENESS APPARENT Underneath the surface as the hearings opened there were easily discerned signs of the tenseness of the determined fight being waged between Northern and Southern California to land the great dirigible base, and indications of all the wire pulling that has been going on for months to "line up" this and that naval officer and committee member. The session today revealed CJiair-man Britten apparently in the role of a Sunnyvale advocate. "Strategy" was all the general board was concerned with in picking Camp Kearny, Admiral Chase declared, pointing out that the function of the board under the law is to look at all such matters purely from an all-around standpoint. Representative Vinson, Democrat of Georgia, a member of the committee, cited the language of Congress directing the base be established where it would most benefit the fleet both in peace and war. and Chase said it was pursuant to these instructions that the board chose the San Diego base. QUIZZED ON PORTS Chairman Britten threw questions at Admiral Chase tending to prove that San Francisco Bay would be the base of fleet operations in time of war and that the dirigible base accordingly should be located near by, but the witness staunchly de- (Continued on Page 5, Column 3) LATEST CENSUS RETURNS OAKLAND, CaL. 284,213; in crease 67,952, or 31.42 per cent.

Thus, in effect, it was a challenge to Arizona either to take Boulder Dam or leave it, and in the latter event to do its worst in Congress and the courts without further delay. It was a "show-down" letter, as interpreted here. Secretary Wilbur said that, contrary to the complaints that Arizona had made, extreme consideration had been shown the State all the way along the preliminary negotiations culminating in the signing of the power contracts at Los Angeles late last month. He pointed out that he waited sixteen months before taking definite sction in the vain hope that Arizona finally would come into the, picture happily so that the development could proceed under full seven-State accord. He mentioned the repeated efforts that had been made to get Arizona to co-operate in the working out of final details. STATE GIVEN POWER Wilbur pointed out tfat without any responsibility whatever Arizona is given 18 per cent of the firm power, to use, throw back or take again, as she pleases: that she will get from $22,000,000 to $31,000,000 annually handed her on a platter during the fifty-year amortization period, although there is no strict obligation to give her this revenue; That, in addition, she will receive a proportionate benefit ir. a fund of from $29,000,000 to $66,000,000 for future development of the Colorado basin, and that; slie will have 3,000,000 acre-feet of water which one day she will be asking the government to deliver to her. All this in addition to vital flood-control. COMPLAINTS TAKEN UP The Secretary took up. the major Arizona compaints one by one, and disposed of them. One of the protests was against the 25 cents per acre-font charge decided upon for water storage for the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. Arizona wants this charge to be Rt least $1 per acre-foot. But Mr. Wilbur pointed out that Arizona some day will be asking for its water and that when that time comes it will be a question of whether the State will pay $750,000 a year for storage, under the charge set by the government, or $3,000,000 as it would be under the rate it now demands. Arizona has suggested further lower basin conferences on differences with California, but Secretary Wilbur declared in his letter: "The success of this whole project means too much to the --hole Southwest, including very particularly your own State, to justify postponing this flood-control and irrigation measure for another year to give opportunity for more interstate conferences." REFUSALS CITED Secretary Wilbur, in his letter to Gov. Phillips, went carefully over the entire period between passage of the Boulder Dam Act and the signing of the power contracts which made it effective and pointed out the instance in which Arizona was asked to attend conferences on power allocation, but refused to send representatives. The last of this series of meetings was held in Washington November 12, last, and even after that the Secretary said (Continued on Page 2, Column 1) STATE GAINS 2,043,985 California First to Report Five 100,000 Class Cities; Aggregate Increase 58.72 Per Cent SAN FRANCISCO, May 4.

The 141,390 figure, however, shows Long Beach to have increased 85,797, or 154.3 per cent, since its 1920 census figure of 55,593. Saa Diego's 147.897 figure shows -H increased 73514, or 98 per cent, since its 1920 figure of 74,683. SOME CONSOLATION ' Some consolation is being obtained by Long Beach out of the fact that it made an enormous gain which, in number as well as percentage, exceeded that of San Diego. The recent slack in oil-field industries and absence of naval vessels from the Long Beach-Los Angeles Harbor are blamed by Long Beach for losing its precedence over San Diego. These, it was declared, would have added at least 10,000 to Long Beach's figure; giving it a safe margin above San Diego. HOLLYWOOD' PLAN Yesterday Supervisor Kincaid of Hollywood came out with a plan to announce the population of Hollywood Just as if it were a feparate city, instead of a part of Los Angeles, and to make the announcement 1n advance of that for the city of Los Angeles as a whole. This, it is set forth by proponents of tha plan, wiil enable Hollywood to take the "first big shot publicity" for itself. Its proponents are certain that the glory that will be gained by Hollywood's showing will enable not only Los Angeles but the whole Southland to bask in the spotlight. It is proposed to have the Holly wood Chamber of Commerce set up an area within Los Angeles for which Kincaid will announce tit population as that of Hollywood. This area will be bounded' by the mountains on the north, Hoover street and Hyperion avenue on the east. La Cienega Boulevard on the west and Beverly Boulevard on the south. In this area, the Hollywood chamber has estimated the population to be 160,000 as of January 1, last. SUGGESTION MADE ,.--" Kincaid broached the plan ai a meeting of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce special census committee and its statistical and research committee with tour of the five census supervisors who arc directing the Federal count in .Los Angeles county. With Kincaid stood DcCoudres and against the plan stood Supervisors Ballentlne of Monrovia and Chenoweth of Glendale. The fifth supervisor A. C. Munson of Los Angeles, was not present. It was argued that if Kincaid announced figures for a section arbitrarily selected as Hollywood, why could not such other parts of Los Angeles, as Eagle Rock. Venice, Watts, Sawtelle, Ve.?t Los Angeles, Owensmouth, North Hollywood, Van Nuys,-San Pedro and Wilmington, get hi on the "big publicity" also. However, while the supervisors split two to two, the fifth being absent, the whole body voted, eight to (Continued on Page 5, Column S) should be maintained by rural districts and the unreported cities, the uoiaen oiaies i-jju population total would be 5,524,887, a gain of 2,043,985. Returns from 'townships and the' "hamlet" type of community have, been too Inconclusive - to disclose the precise curve of population growth yet the principal counties reported have fairly closely paralleled the surprising growth of ths cities. : Of the more than 817,000 increase already disclosed, the . territory north of the Tehachapi accounted lor 321,638 and that south of the range, 435,655. With two metropolitan areas exceeding 1550,000 . each, the State owes a further distinction to the 1930 Federal enumeration that ct having in its confines five cities of more than 100,000 population, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland; San Diego and Long Beach. It is the first. State In the Union to record five 100.000 population cities, although the 1930 census may disclose ether States before the count is concluded. New York and Ohio had four each in 1920. Increase of manufacturing, expansion of trade in the Pacific and climate are generally attributed as the three principal factors of California's vast census increase.
