Fallowing her were Mrs. Newton D. Chapman. New York. 979, and Mrs. Grant Everett Lilly. Kentucky, 944. A resolution was passed requesting ' the Torktown Memorial Commission to ; designate one day in the course of the ; exposition as D. A. R- day, the or- I ganization to have charge of the pro- j gram on that occasion. A second resolution, set aside April 3 aa American Creed Day on whlcn every citizen will be asked to repeat the pledge of allegiance to the flag. In the course of s report of the National Committee on the Sons and Daughters of the Republic, an organization of children, Mrs. Ike Barton McFarland, chairman, told the delegates: "Flaming youth, can be a firebrand of disaster, or it may be a torch o' enlightenment. Its destiny lies in our hands as well rs in its own. And it will shine with a glorious radiance If ita sparks but be fed with patriotism and love and fanned by truth and loyalty." Mrs. McFariana aecnea tne mroaus of communism snd socialism in the schools, and urged the support of the delegates in active moves to combat the propaganda. Against Alliances A series of brilliant social affairs took place this evening at conclusion of the 'business session. One of the outstanding events was a reception by 'u. S. Senator Hamilton F. Keen to New Jersey's delegates to the convention. , As hostess at a midnight supper, Mrs. C. Edward Murray. Trenton, regent of the New Jersey organization, entertained a large number of i'-v Jersey delegates and members. Upholding America's traditional Independence of action in world affairs, the members today adopted a sweeping resolution opposing all foreign entanglements snd slliances. The resolution said: "Whereas, the Daughters of the American Revolution has as its foundation the best interests of the United States, and whereas citizens of the United States cherish the admonition of George Washington to refrain from foreign entanglements, therefore, be it resolved that the Daughters of the American Revolution does hereby oppose the commitment of our country to entangling alliances which could operate to limit our full liberty of decision in international affairs." The convention made decisive its stand of yesterday when it adopted a report opposing the ent:-nce into the League of Nations, the League Court, or any European consultative pacts or security agreements. Repudiation by the 4063 delegates of tit principles set forth by President Hoover wnen ne opened tne convention Monday night with a plea for lpport of the League Court, was unanimous. A. few moments later the delegates . went on record for adequate national defense, adopting with enthusiasm a report oi Mrs. wmiam walker s Herman, chairman of the National De- tense Committee. "Only five and a fraction cents out of-every tax dollar goes for providing national defense. Another ridiculous charge," she said, "is often heard, that the army and navy want war. 'i Our committee answers that such an ' assertion Insults and Indicts their in telligence and training. Do flood suf ferers hope there will be another floodr Do any who have gone through , tornado catastrophe or an enidemlc scourge want to repeat tneir expe- ' rience? How unfair then to say that , those who know most about war are - the first to want It again."

This matter, he says, "is , entirely within the province of the city , of Camden. A connection with the Market street subway direct or by running the Market street subwsy over the bridge into Camden Instead of to South street. Philadelphia, Is called "impossible" in the plan. No action was taken on the plan presented and the report was taken under advisement. The monthly report showed 921.732 vehicles crossed the span during March, an increase of 70.838 over March, 1929, and an increase of 335.291 over March, 1927. Receipts for the month were 282,&159, an increase of t44.9S0.99 over March, 1929, and of J127.073.27 over March. 1927. Text ef Plan The full text of Costello's plan follows: High speed transit on rails across the Delawsre river bridge between Camden and the subwsy system of Philadelphia Is a possibility that can be attained economically and quickly. This would be a two-track line from Fifth and Linden streets, Camden. ; formed by engineers of the Depart-across the bridge using the south side i ment of Transit of the City of Phll- both going and coming, through a sub way to be built in Race street ana thence into the Eighth street subwsy and Market streets. Philadelphia. The demand for this connection seems to have grown very much within the past few months and numerous plans have been proposed. I submit that the problem resolves itself into three parts, namely, the City of Phil adelphia, the City of Camden and the Delaware river bridge. The bridge was, of course, designed with a view to accommodating high speed transit lines and therefore the least complex part of the problem Is our own. The connecting link to be afforded by the bridge is the simplest part of the chain and it would take less time to lay tracks upon the structure than to do the necessary work at either terminus. Cerreete Impression Possibily arising from unfamlllarity with the rather involved subject, there has .been an Impression that high speed transit on the bridge was either doomed or was severely handicapped by the construction by the Delaware River Bridge Joint Commission of the vehicular underpass now n earing completion in Fifth street, Philadelphia. It has been said that high speed trains could not operate unless the underpass were torn out and replaced by the longer underpass suggested in 1924 which called for the demolition of cost ly property from Cherry street to Race street and from Vine street to Callow-hill street in Philadelphia. Six years ago the Joint commission gave careful attention to the building of this longer unaerpass nut no funds were available for acquisition of the necessary prop erty and construction costs and the project was therefore of necessity set aside. The bridge was opened In 1928 with a grade intersection at Fifth street and for more than three years bridge traffic and Fifth street traffic mutually interfered with each other. Fifth street carried more north bound traffic than mj uiuer airvet in r-nuaaeipnia with the exception of Broad street and one of the busiest trolley lines of the, city operated thereon. The swelling tide of bridge traffic made necessary a rather extreme expedient In the Rummer of 1929 when we were compelled to ask the police authorities of Philadelphia to divert all vehicular travel, with the exception of trolley cars, from Fifth stgeet on Sunday nights. There was some complaint on the part of motorist that they should be compelled to detour but we found it impossible to keep traffic moving on the bridge unless ths cross travel were banished. Even so the necessary stoppages caused by the trolley ears which could not. be rerouted seriously hampered Passage over the bridge at the busiest hours. City Lacks Cash It waa evident that a grade separation must be constructed and the 1924 plan was again taken trp for investigation. ' The Joint commission did not bav available; the t2,000,000 or 2,500,-000 which the long anderpasa was estimated to cost and therefor a number of Interviews were ' bad -with authorities of the elty of Philadelphia regarding the, possibility of municipal construction of the ' tunnel. It was found that the elty wag In no position to spend the necessary millions. The alternative then sugegsted Jtself-of building sn underpass from Race to Vine streets which would accommo date both trolley and vehicular travel on Fifth street and would remove the necessity of stopping the bridge traf fic at any time. This underpass was designed by our engineers and the Joint commission awarded the contract in November, 1929. at a cost of $172,- : 388.55 with property damage limited to i less than 1150.000. This underpass will be in operation next month within contract time. I know of no way in which such great relief from traffic congestion could be obtained by the expenditure - ' ' "J in any way with the operation of high speed trains over the bridge. At a i cost of considerably less than 1100.000 j the track spaces on the south side of inn spaces uu u buuid siuc ui 'he bridge can connected with a ! auwnaj l, w wui.b " J ..... . I.J w. Philadelphia. The commission can connect the track spaces by swinging off from the bridge at a point 144 feet ' west of the' centre line of Fourth street. Philadelphia, in a curve with an Inside radius of 207 feet into the portal of a subway which would start in the yard of the public school at the corner of Fifth and Race streets. Our plan then calls for a straight line of 63 feet followed by a curve with a radius of 207 feet which would carry the subway into Race street. It is possible to operate high speed trains upon a curve with a radius of 200 feet. Ts Vse Span Land The connection from the subway portal to the present track space west of Fourth Street would be built entirely over property owned by the Joint Commission to the south of the bridge. This would necessitate the closing of the present thoroughfare leading to the bridge on the south side but this closing would be welcomed from the view point of operating traffic as it is rather dificult to get vehicles around the pylon and on to the bridge without interfering with the main stream of traffic entering from the plaza. The question of clearances for the subway has been worked out with care. It would be possible to build the subway connection with a clearance at Fifth and Race streets of more than 14 feet without interfering with the grade of the present underpass. This would be sufficient clearance, I am in- adelphia, to take care of theasubway cars now In use. The grade proposed would be 5 per cent which is exactly the aame as the grade adopted in the original design lor high speed lines on the bridge. This grade is not prohibitive for high speed operation. It la my suggestion that the financial responsibility of the Joint Commission would be limited to the building of the link between our present track spaces and the subway portal. With the most liberal estimate for labor and materials I believe that this could be built for less than (100,000. The Department of. Transit of Phil adelphia has been studying, for several years, the problem of connecting the subway in Eighth street with the bridge. Director Myers and his associates In the Department have gone Into the matter In detail. I believe the Department of City Transit would look with favor upon the extension of the Eighth street subway to the bridge by the construction of a subway link in Race street at an estimated coat of nearly 13.000.000. Link te West Phlla. The Eighth street aubway is part of what Is known as the Ridge avenue cut-off of the Broad street subway and s now under construction on Eighth street from Market street north to Race street and on Ridge avenue from Race street to Fairmount avenue, where a connection Is to be nmde with the Broad street subway, now in operation. The plans of the Transit De partment call for the extenaion of the line from Eighth street Into Locust or Walnut street snd thence to West Philadelphia. The portions of the subway now under construction would, when completed and if rails were laid upon the bridge, permit the delivery of passengers trom camaen at Eighth and Market streets, Philadelphia. Later, as referred to above, passengers will be carried to West Philadelphia. No hope can be held out of connecting the bridge and the Frankford elevated and the Market street subway. Although on paper this connection seems desirable, the practical difficulties in the way are apparently insurmountable. Officials of the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company have, within the last week, reaffirmed their previous declaration that the Market street subway Is now carrying its capacity at rush hours. A suggestion was made that the Market street trains now running to the Chestnut and South street ferries be discontinued and that this service be extended over the bridge to Camden. We were informed authoritatively within the 'last week that the demands from Frankford for ' Increased service on the Frankford elevated would not permit a permanent operation to Cam-men and that even if the Public Service Commission were to approve abandonment of the service to the ferries the requirements of Frankford are such that service to Camden could not be given for more than two or three years. The cost of connecting the bridge and the Frankford elevated is given at 11,000,000. It would, of course, be impossible -to expend "1TOOO,000 for two or three yean service. '" Sneb a Hnk will not be built by either the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company or the Departnjent of City Transit and Is utterly beyond the resources of the Joint commission. iv ). . 'Money Ready -O . The Joint Commission is financially abls now to meet the expenses of laying rails upon the bridge. There remains from the funds contributed by the Commonweslth of Pennsylvania and ths City of Philadelphia towards construction of the brlds; a sufficient balance to defray one-half the cost of New Plan the rails puis the connection proposed above to the subway in Race street, The Legislature of the State of New Jersey passed, at the present session, a bill which apropriates for the laying of rails a sum of $375,000 to be taken out of the operating receipts of the bridge. In Philadelphia the way seems clear for the building of the connection to the Eighth Street subway and there nothing to hinder the project so far as it relates to the Delaware River Bridge itself. The third part of the snare useu. I ne inira pan oi tne probm which is afforded by the Cam- WC1I . , ... .U U J UCOl , CO WC1UI UIUBU1 eration. ,-.i h.. k. . subway be built in Fifth street, Cam den, from the Delaware River Bridge to a proposed bus terminal at Fifth and Federal streets and thence to the Broadway station of the Pennsylvania Railroad with either a aSibway or elevated line to the ferry house of the Reading Railroad. I have not yet seen an estimate of the cost of this proposed construction or any plan for the financing thereof but this, of course, is a matter entirely within the province of the City of Camden and does not fall within this general survey. There is however, a temporary measure which might be considered and which 1 submit is both economical and practical. The high speed lines on the bridge would come to grade at the Camden end of the bridge at Fourth street. At the present time one of the track spaces ts carried to Fourth street while the outer track space ia suspended in air at Third street. It would be possible to carry this outer section to Fourth street paralleling the inner section and then "stub-end" the line on the surface in the space now belonging to the Joint Commission and which is at present used as a street on the south side of the bridge. Title to this property rests with the commission and the street has never been dedicated. A station could be built at comparatively little expense nsing the umbrella type now adopted in many railway terminals. The trains would be brought to a stop on the street level receiving and discharging their passengers on the same side. Expenses of constructing this "stub-end" would be within the limits of the money available for track facilitiea on the bridge. Suggests Bus Terminal J it Is possible that consideration might be given to the building of a bus terminal beside the station. The Joint Commission owns the larger part of 'the triangle bounded on the north by the street to be used for the high speed station, on ths south by Linden etreetj on the east by Fifth street and on the west by Fourth street. There are at present on this plot, seven houses which cover an area of 130 feet by 100 feet and which are assessed for a total of (39,100. Undoubtedly these could be acquired reasonably by the City of Camden. It would be possible to construct a bus terminal of adequate size upon the triangle with a direct connection to the high speed station in the street. The "stub-ending" of high speed transit lines is common practice. The Market street subwsy trains are stub-ended at the eastern terminus as are those of the Broad street subway at the southern end. The usual crossover trackage could be provided at the station betweeq Fourth and Fifth streets. Under this plan both east and westbound trains would use the track sections available on the south side of the bridge, leaving the track sections on the north side free for such uss as the needs of the bridge would later indicate. I would like to make plain the thought that stopping the trains at Fifth and Linden streets is not Intended to be permanent but Is Suggested as a measure of affording the promptest relief and this station could be built by the Joint commission out of funds now available while plans for a subway and elevated line are being given consideration by the city of Camden. The plans submitted with this study are to be regarded as general In character and no attempt has been made to go into detail. They are Intended to show, however, that a simple and practical method of affording high speed transit on rails across the bridge is available. SUBWAY LOOP COST PUT AT $12,077,000 A West Philadelphia subway loop between the Market street subway and the proposed Locust street-Woodland avenue tube would cost about (12,077,-000, Philadelphia's city council was Informed yesterday by Director of Transit Myers. .The plan calls for a subway-surface car tube under Thirty-ninth street Tnirty-nintn street between Market street and Woodland avenue, with practically all . surface trolley lines in the affected area diverted Underground via the neif loon, - ATSION MAN BEING HELD: .

Gandhi Regrets Violence; Says Freedom Must Be Won Bombay, April 17. The struggle against British rule which he launched by his Illegal salt manufacture JX days ago must continue unchecked, afa-hatma Gandhi said today. ' The apostle of passive resistance and non-violence made his statement after being Informed that 80 persons bad been injured in riots in Calcutta and 66 injured and two killed In Ksrsrtil. one of his sons. Ram .Das, was serving a prison term at Surat for making salt, and another. Davi Das Gandhi, was sentenced today at Delhi. Gandhi frankly admitted that the violence shown at Calcutta and Karachi waa harming his movement. On the other hand he referred to alleged "atrocities" committed in the Gujerat province agaiast defenseless possessors of Illicit salt and charged the government with provoking trouble. Navy Pact Drawn; Japs Threaten Delay Continued from Page One) treaty, that power will notify the others of the amount and kind of building it requires. "Thereupon the two other po- ers shall be entitled to make proportionate increase in the same category or categories." Senator Defends Claase Senator Robinson further pointed out that such limitations of armaments ia a voluntary process, it is "wise, in principle," to enter Into this arrangement, to avoid the responsibility of insisting that any other nation must have i(s hands tied in a possible emergency. Continuing, his statement reads : "While It is to be hoped that no situation will arise under which any of the three powers may find It necessary to Increase its tonnage in auxiliary veasels, prudence calls fo- a provision in such a contingency. "If a real emergency should arise, I should want the United States to be free to act without the consent of others, and of course, we must concede the same sight to them. It is desirable that those who limit their means of defense should feel safe in that limitation. Otherwise, they will not continue the process of limitation." Treaty Likely to Go To Senate by May 1 Washington, April 17. Early action by the. Senate will be sought on the London Nsval Treaty it was indicated today following a White House conference between President Hoover snd Senate leaders. It Is likely the treaty will be sent to the Senate by May 1. Whether the treaty will be submitted to the Senate Foreign Relations committee or to the Naval Affairs Committee appeared to be in doubt. President Hoover, it is Indicated, desires the pact to go before the Foreign Relations Committee. Senator Hale, of Maine, chairman of the Naval Affairs Committee, declared he would demand that the treaty be submitted first to his committee.. " Befbre 'that, committee naval experts would be summoned ' to explain wny the American delegation agreed to slash the number of 10,000-ton cruisers to but 18, and agreed to build smaller cruisers, which it has been repeatedly stated this country can not use to advantage. Those attending the conference were Senator Watson, of Indiana, Republican leader of the Senate; Senator Borah, of Idaho, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee; Senator Hale, of Maine, chairman of the Naval Affairs Committee, and Acting Secretary of State Cotton. While Senator Borah declined to commit himself definitely one way or the other, he stated that be was disposed to regard any -treaty that tended to reduce armament with sympathy.

With precision such as this. Lindbergh today had completed arrangements for his forthcoming experimental flight to the east. Tonight he said he expected to make the flight as high as 20,000 feet, dropping from time to time to lower altitudes in the search for strong eastern tallwinds. A low pressure area, now about 1000 miles off the Psclfic coast, may delay his start until daybreak Sunday. But the plans are still incomplete, be added. With Mrs. Lindbergh as co-pilot, the couple, clad in their new electric sui's. which "are nothing but ordinary flying suits with heating attachments.' according to the colonel, expect to make an average speed of 160 to 175 miles an hour. The primary purpose of the flight east at this high elevation. It was explained, is to chart out a new air trail over which ships may fly without encountering headwinds.
