VOL. 123. lire i Earl Warren FIRM Flier Will Appear Before Senate Group Tomorrow; Declines Dcrns Second Request WASHINGTON, Mar. 15. (UP) Col. Charles A. Lindbergh today agreed to help the Senate draft new air mail legislation, but stood pat on his refusal to participate in an army aviation inquiry. In response to an invitation from Chairman Kenneth McKeilar of the Senate postoflices committee, which working on the new air mail bill, uindbergh telegraphed: "Will be glad to appear tomorrow." The committee also will hear other famous fliers, including Clarence Chamberlin, trans - Atlantic aviator. Eddie Riekenbacker and Brig. Cien. William' Mitchell, onetime Army Air Corps chief. Maj. Gen. B. D. Eoulois. chief of the Army Air Corps, issued a statement through the War Department in which ho said that the Army Air Corps must be "completely organized, equipped and trained to meet any national emergency on 24 hours' notice. Foulois is now on an inspection trip of the eastern airmail area as a result of the crisis in the army efforts to replace commercial companies. Secretary of War George H. Dern, meantime, prepared to appoint other civilians to replace Lindbergh and Orville Wright on the army board which is to survey all Air Corps operations phases in connection with administration plans for unification of federal aviation. Wright declined to serve because of ill health. Lindbergh refused the post last night in a telegram in which he again criticized cancplla-j Halt-on lion of airmail contracts as a blow j . o aviation. Assistant Postmaster Gcnrral HarllPe Branch said he expected orders from the army "any moment to resume flights on some of the sky lines which have been empty of mail planes since Sunday. The Post Office made public nine proposed routes, covering about 25 P"r cent of the airmail service in effect under the old private contracts. Democrats and Republicans on (he Senate Post Office Committee rebelled against a provision in the new bill which would prevent award of contracts to air lines which made any claim against the government on account of cancellation of the ild contracts.

Schools Meet Here Ship Totally Wrecked When It Falls Near Expeditions Winter Base j LITTLE AMERICA, Antartica, I March 14 (Delayed) (Via Mackay j Radio) . (U.R) The "Blue Blade, I one of the four planes of the Byrd Antarctic expedition, crashed today 500 yards south of the Little America camp. None of the crew was Killed, but Lieut. Comdr. Isaac Schlossback, U. S. N., retired, and three passengers were shaken up and suffered slight cuts. The plane was complete! wrecked. In the cabin when the single-engined Fokker hit the ground were Arthur A. Zuhn of Mount Pleasant, la.; Fred J. Dustin of Revere, Mass.; and Harry M. Young of New Zealand. All three were dazed for a few moments, and Zuhn was slightly cut. The Byrd expedition, second ven-j ture into the Antarctic by Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd, has been beset by difficulties since its arrival off Little America, and the crash of tne "Blue Blade was another blow to its plans for extensive aerial exploration. The expedition previously had been repeatedly endangered by j crumbling ice along the huge ice; cliff on the Bay of Whales, and only , weeks of desperate, almost unceas-1 ing work made it possible to move the winter's food supply and other valuable stores to safety from a temporary camp. The crumbling of the ice cliff also endangered the expedition ships on several occasions. The Fokker monoplane had just been taken into the air on a test flight preparatory to making a dash j southward in company with the j Pilgrim monoplane, Miss American Airways. The two planes were in-j tended to transport the food stores required for an advanced winter base to a depot 100 miles south. Injuries to the pilot and crew were not so serious but that they resumed their camp duties a few hours after the crash. Within an hour after the accident, the Pilgrim took to the air and made a short test flight. Later It flew south with 800 pounds of food, destined for the mountain base. The Pilgrim reported by radio, late this afternoon, that it had deposited its cargo and was returning to Little America. Admiral Byrd refused to permit the crash to discourage continuance of his southern plans, although it added another disheartening setback to the previous difficulties and a three-day blizzard of last week which delayed the projected dash. Associated With Arnold Aldrich Orville Clark Humphrey of San Francisco, a real estate man of long experience in sub-division work, j has come to Napa and is associated with Wm. Arnold Aldrich in the real estate business at Mr. Aldrich's office on First street. Mr. Humphrey is a man of family ;md will bring his family to Napa to locate his home as soon as he is able to find suitable accommodations. I N. Y.
