The delegates represented 79 Legion posts in the state. The letter , said in part : "You ask our support!

(CP) Tho proposals before Congress i greater navy and recent predictions of another war over commerce constitute sher madness. In the opinion of Senator Horah, Uepuhli- can, Idaho, and duplicate the "insane policy th.-U tnarkeil Anglo-German relations prior to the Great War.'' Attacking ns "mischievous to the Inst degree" the recent recommendation of Admiral Chas. F. Hughes, chief of naval operations, for virtually a billion-dollar ravy and the statement Saturday of rtear-AdmirHl Chas. P. I'Minkett. commandant of the Brooklyn navy yard, that a war with Great Ftriiain over commerce is inevitable, the chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee, ln a statement la-st night, said: "Ml this is part of a well-organized plan to prepare the public mind for a naval race. A limited number of cruisers to help police our commerce can be Justiried. I'.ut this programme, toeether with the wild and incited Is sheer mad- da S h between the United States and Latin - American countries at the Pan-American Conference has occurred, it was learned Sunday night, over measures the American delegation propose for the protection of the Panama Canal rone, the American naval base at Guantanamo, Cuba, and other fortified places, from spying by foreign aviators. The American proposal Is an amendment to the projected convention on commercial aviation which Is to come before the conference committee on communications this week. Under the terms of the draft convention the United States may prohibit the aircraft of any other country contracting;, from flying over any portion of Its territory and may prescribe flying routes In the vicinity of prohibited areas, provided that the prohibition extends to American aircraft also. UNSATISFACTORY TO U. S. DELEGATES. This Is unsatisfactory to the American delegation which has drafted an amendment by virtue of which the United States would determine what air lines could establish landing places in the vicinity of fortified areas and in other important respects control commercial aviation in the neighbor hood of the canal zone. The matter has been brought to a head by the efforts of the Scadta Company of Colombia, whit h is backed by German capital, to establish a line of aircraft operating from Colombia across the i'anama Canal to an airport in the liepublie of Panama. At the Instance of the United States the Government of Panama has refused up to date to grant the German company landing rights. American officials think it unwise to allow unregulated flying . over the i.a.ral by foreign aircraft. Foreign aviators, it is conceived, would be able. If uncontrolled, to obtain an intimate knowledge of the defenses of the canal, and in the event of war the foreign air line might oe employed for the bombing of the canal. The United States does not. seek to prevent the Scadla company from establishing a line crossing the canal, but It wants to tie able to designate the point at which the canal shall be crossed and the point at which landings are to be made in I'anama, and it wants to be free to allow more liberal privileges to American airship lines if it appears desirable.

George Hoyt said that when he first went to the seem? of the search with I.loyd Stcarman, president of the ytearman Aircraft Company that employed Fred Hoyt. he was called on the telephone by a rancher living near Holbrook. The rancher was disgruntled because no planes had searched an area near his farm, where he believed the aviator had gone down, lie urged an Immediate search. "It proves that there is a guiding spirit tn everything." George continued. "Stearman and I went into that country In which the search had extended over an area of about Soo square miles and went almost to the eiact spot Immediately." George said that his brother had travelled some distance after landing. He added that the parachute had not been found, but predicted that when it was recovered, it would be found spread out as a signal to passing airmen engaged In the rearch Fred Iloyt Knew would be progressing. George Hoyt also said there, would probably he a note with the parachute. He added that seven pieces of blue paper had been torn from the log and that four of these had been found some distance from the aviator's body. Four of them still are missing. This was taken to mean he was leaving a trail from the parachute. BOUT TOVWD NEAR FAOOOT3. The aviator's body was found beside a pile of tag brush which he apparently gathered for his fire during the night. George said his brother had probably become exhausted in gathering the brush and had sat down to rest, never to get up. The letter to his wife was written shortly after 1 o'clock, two hours he. fore the last entry in tbe diary. On the first page of the log was a single sentence: "Letter for my wife will be found on page I" " Such Is Life! , v i n , mm ; ;i lis THE WEATHER NEW YORK. Jan, 2.1.

"I don't remember what I did say," tho Times quotes tho admiral as saying. "You go get the record; you will see what I faid. and you will get something worth while- My remarks were taken down stenographically. "1 am not In the habit of predicting war.

IS SERMON'S TOPIC Rev. A. H. Sovereign Con tinues Series MacBeth On Loyalty. In tho second of a series of sermans on moral problems in Vancouver, Rev. A. If. Sovereign spoke on "Sabbath Observance," v " ' "Tho Sabbath Day Is the oldest ordinance from God to man." he declared. "It is the oldest institution of tho human race. One day's rest In seven is necessary to man's physical and mental life." The Lord's Day Act in Canada, Mr. Sovereign said, is in no sense a violation of man s liberty. "It is a safeguard for all who labor, and secures for all a weekly day of rest, he declared. "The way in which the day of rest is spent depends on the man's character, and Is also an index of the size of his soul. It is true still that no great civilization has outlived the demise of Its religious faith." From Acts 20:18, "Fed the Church of God wThlch he purchased with His Own blood," Rev. R. G. MacBeth, D.D., preached a sermon Sunday morning In St. Paul's Presbyterian Church. Things purchased by blood are highly-prized by right-thinking people, he said, and a country saved by the sacri fice of men, and a freedom preserved in church and state by the valiant dead outfrt to be cherished. The church purchased by the blood of Christ can not be destroyed by outside enemies, he declared, but those within it must be faithful and loyal to God. ' Rev. J. G. Drown, D.D., of Union Theological College, preached in Trinity 1'nitrd Church Sunday, nnd was heard by large congregations. Doing the will of God. be said, was the only way to know the doctrines. Obedience, is the way to spiritual knowledge, all other methods lead to doubt and disaster. Right living is the key to right knowing. It was announced during the service that the pastor, Rev. J. D. Hobden. is recovering his health, nnd would return to his work sometime next month. SALVATION ARHY IN SPECIAL SERVICES Training School May Be Founded Here, Commis sioner Announces.
