That Flight Failure Was Due To
"Amateur :Bungling"
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 5.-Six naval
air officers today opposed before the
President's air board, Col. William
Mitchell's plan for reorganiaztion of
the national defense, while the col-
onel was called to the War depart-
ment where disciplinary proceeding
against him are under consideration
as a result of his criticism of existing
The naval pilots solidly lined up
against the colonel's proposed depart-
mient of national defense, but dif-
fered. among themselves as to a
remedy for the dissatisfaction they
freely admitted was prevalent among
the national air personnel because of
the present organization.
One of the naval officers Lieut..
Byron Connell, pilot of the Hawaiian
fleet,. plane TN-9 No. 1, also took ex-1
ception of Colonel Mitchell's charge
that "amateur bungling" by non-fly-
ing naval officers was responsible for
failure of the flight. He asserted all
arrangements were intrusted to Con.
John Rodgers, flight leader whom he
described as a "very, very good flier."
Two of the other naval pilots also
opposed a suggestion made to the
board by Maj. Gen. John L. Hines,
Army chief of staff, that the coastal
defense be turned over eventually to
the Army, declaring such an arrange-
ment would violate good judgment.
They were Coin. Kenneth Whiting and
Patrick Bellinger.
Colonel Mitchell after appearing at
the Army -inspectorgeneral office
went to the capital where he called
a conference of press representatives
and declared that if disciplinary pro-
ceedings were initiated Representa-
tive Frank Read of Illinois, a member
of the House aircraft committee of
the last Congress, would represent
him as civilian counsel. The Colonel
also reiterated that the fight for a

The average man in shaving him
self once a day during the course of
an average lifetime, covers 20 miles
of territory. This is the statement
of an English writer.
The ear to ear measurement on the
average man's face in 121-2 inches,
and from where his beard starts on
his throat to his chin and on to
the upper lip is four and a half inches,
the writer says. This area, shaved
every day, requires two strokes for
every inch so that every day the
average man covers 68 inches of
space. In a year this amounts to
24,820 inches, and in a lifetime it
totals .20 miles.
If a man takes five minutes a day
to shave himself, at 70 he will have
spent a total of 75 days in shaving,
the writer concludes.

today, landed safely there Sunday a
few minutes before darkness fell,
completing the first commercial air-
plane reliability tour.
Only one plane was forced out of
the race, being wrecked near Kan-
sas City without injury either to pilot
or passenger. The other plane thati
failed to reach the airport Sunday
was obliged to land at Monroe, 45
miles from its goal, when caught by
larkness. This plane, the Mercury,
Jr., arrived at the airport this morn-
The Fokker three-motored mono-
plane was the first to land Sunday,
followed within three minutes by the
Ford all-metal monoplane, with the
Curtiss Carrier Pigeon third. Thle
last lap of the flight, from Cleveland
to Dearborn, was described as the
most difficult of all, the flyers meeting
storms most of the way.I
Henry Ford, who was at the air-
port most of the afternoon awaitingf
the arrival of the planes, was en-,
thusiastic over the accomplishment of
the 1,900 mile tour.
"The fact that so many airplanes
entered the tour and returned suc-
cessfully proves that airplane trans-
portation is safe and reliable," he'
said. "The tour, I believe, has done
more for aviation than any one thing.
Although personally I do not fancy
flying, I am for aviation and will back

The Ford entry, piloted by Eddie
Hamilton, had the shortest elapsed
time for the 1,775 miles covered by
the air tourist, with an average
speed of 101.5 miles an hour. The
Fokker was next with 98.5, and the,
Carrier Pigeon third with 98.4. J
Ten planes finished with perfect,
scores and the right to have their

President Coolidge To Arrive Today;
Will Address Legionaries And
Lead Veterans' Parade
(By Associated Press)
OMAHA, Neb., Oct. 5.-The initial
session of the seventh annual con-
vention of the American Legion endedl
this afternoon after brief opening;
ceremonies.wThetserious work of the
gathering went to committee meet-)
Most of them early tonight had nog
been productive of results. Several
knotty problems were encountered
including the attitude of the aero-
nautical committee toward Col. Wil-j
liam Mitchell. The various commit-
tees will have until Thursday to re-

and in the afternoon will lead th
veterans parade. President Coolidge
will ride at the head of the column
for one mile, and then will take his
place in the reviewing stand. The
parade will be thre miles long. Th'_
President is scheduled to arrive at
8:30 o'clock. Battery "B" of the
Ninth field artillery will fire a Presi
dential salute. The President will
start the return trip to Washington
in the evening.
In its consideration of the Mitchell
matter the aeronautical commit tee
had before it a resolution presented
by various posts in concert, Michigan,
Minnesota and Ohio.
The session quickly developed into
a heated discussion whether "Col.
Mitchell" should be considered in
framing its various resolutions, and
it was decided that a sub-conunitte('
should be appointed to consider all
resolutions regardless of the subject
matter. The sub-committee met to-
night to formulate definite resoln-
tions for presentation to the general
committee meeting tomorrow.
Several committeemen demanded
exclusion of the press from the com-n
mittee meetings, but they were voted
down after Gen. C. R. Edwards oft
Westwood, Mass., combat officer and
Frank R. Warner, of Norfolk, Neb.,
chairman of the committee, strongly
opposed the motion.
