ST. JOHNS, Newfoundland, May 12
-Whether= the great eolony of New-
foundland, long klnown as "the senti-
nel of the St. Liawrence,". holds the
ey to the mystery ,rrbunding the
disappearance of Captains Nungesses
and Coli, French trans-Atlantic flyers,.
is a question which its inhabitants
are bending every energy to answer.
The problem ritges on sounds
heard in the air by three residents of
Harbor Grace, second largest town in
Newfoundland, last Monday morning.,
Questioned by a local magistrate,
Peter O'Brien and John Stapleton,
stuck. firmly to their story that they
had distinctly heard the whirring of
an airplaie motor. The sound seem-
ed to come from the northeast, Be-
cause of' a dense fog they were uable
to see anything. The two men were
in different parts of the towi at the
time. Mrs Hinto, 'wife of the super-
intendent of the Inmpeial cable at
Harbor Grace, also said that she
plainly heard the sound and was'
sure that it was that of an.Alrplane
If the flyers carry out ther original
plan, of diverting their course in case
they encountered fog on the Grand
tanks, sought a route to the Gulf of,
the St. Lawrence, whence they could
make their way up the St. Lawrence
riVer, it is entirely possible that they
have passed over Harbor Grace.
NEW YQRK, Ilray 12-Clarence
ChamberlaIn and Lloyd Bertrand were
standing by their Bellanca plane at
Mitchell field tonight, ready to hop
off for Paris early in the morning if
weather permits.
Liklihood of the first' American at-
tempt to capture the $25,000 Orteig
prize being a race to start before sun-
rise was disspated late today when
CaptainĀ°*tindbergh arrived from St.
Louis and announced that he would
not take off for France either toni-ght
or tomorrow.
Because of the speed with which he
had flown across the countgy in two
giant hops in ihs Ryan single-seater
monoplane, enthusiasts had believed
that he would let no other entrant get
away ahead of,him. .
With the Bellanca at Mitchell field
tonight and the Ryan at Roosevelt
field, th Fokker monoplane built for
Commander Richard Byrd at Has-
brouck Heghts, was unexpected'y
started on a flight to Roosevelt field
with Byrd following in another plane.
Byrd Party Withdraws
Announcement of' -this move gave
rise to rumors that the Paris flight

might be a three-cornered race, but
this belief was shattered when it was
recalled that Byrd's financial backers
had formally announced last night
that Byrd would not take off for Paris
until the fate of Captain Nungesser
and Major Coli, missing French fliers;
had ben determined.
It was announced early today that
the Bellanca would hop off at one
o'clock tomorrow if possible, .but the

Lewis Browne To Speak Under Aus-
pices Of Hillel Foundation On
Topic, "This Believing World"
Dr. Lewis Browne, noted author and
lecturer, is scheduled to speak here
at 4:30' Sunday afternoon, May 15, in
Natural Science auditorium.. He will
speak on the topic of "This Believing
World". Although he is not yet thirtys
years old, Dr. Browne is the author
of two of the best-selling non-fictionj
books of the day, namely "Stranger
Than Fiction" and "This Believing
'World." The first of these is the{
story of the Jews, while- the latter is l
the tale of man's religions and how1
they have developed. His Ann Arbor
appearance is under the auspices of
the Bnai-Brith Hillel foundation.
Although born in England, Dr.
Barowne received the greatest part of
his education in this country. He.]
spent some time when hb first came
over, in contact with laborers in all
parts of the country. Living and work-
ing with th'e laborers, Dr. Browne was
able to gain first hand information
regarding their conditions. He return-
ed to his studies after living for aa
while with his parents In California,
enrolling in the University of Cin-
cinnati. Speaking of his attitudes atj
college, Dr. Browne has said, "When
I was finishing .college, I was very
much the radical, with all sorts of
theories regdrding the 'labor prob-
lem, the working man, and so forth;
I consulted by father, but he told me,
'Go, find out for yourself'." That is
the way in which Dr. Browne has
gathered material for his writings' He:
travels very extensively, always de-
siring to consult 'thei'very source of
material before writing anything.
Rare Books Of Early

"There are two remedies of the
problem of the big city," Mr. Lewis
Mumford, 'architect and author, de-
clared in a lecture given yesterday in
Natural Science auditorium. "Either
let them go ahead with their growth,
be more elaborate, more expensive,
and let them improve conditions as
much as they are .able, still the re-
sult will be eventually a necropolis
or city of the dead. Or let them build
up a new civilization which will have
an entirely different base. New means
of communication and transportation
will restore the advantages of a rural
region and have made it possible to
live in the country and still enjoy the
advantages of a big city."a
"The city is a problem because of
the enormous quantity of girowth it
has undergone in the last few years,"
Mr. Mumford said. "A new type of
town based upon industrial and finan-
cial problems and having a greater
quantity of people has sprung up, Any
city with a, population over 250,000
is a cold industrial city because of the
great concentration of people in it.
Cities have grown up around mining
towns or harbors or have developed
during the 19th century due to the in-
fluence of the railways. t
lDescribes Housing
"The first problem in the develop-
ment of a big city is the housing,
problem," continued Mr. Mumford,j
Chicago can boast of a. marvellousj
system of parks and boulevards, but
behind the boulevards lies some of'
Ithe worst city planning that I have l
ever come across. Whereever a city!
continues to grow, housing problems,
spring up. A problem such as thi is
an index that the city has a large
mass of casual workers or unemploy-f
ed people. And the food problem ini
the large city has to be solved by soil
robbery from neighboring farm lands.'
A city attempts, to create a source of
supply from places where.the labor is
all ready over-worked.f
Education is forced upon the chil-'
dren of a city; they are literally im-
prisoned in the schools, he said. As a
result of' this prison system of edu-
cation financial accounting is drilled
into the student and ie learns that he
must make more money. Also, no city'
can increase beyond its food supply
if it has no adequate water supply.
Large cities have to resort to elahor-
ate means and large financial fayouts
to obtain a source of water. New York
brags that it obtains its water from
the Catskills forty miles away, but is,
It anything to brag about?
"Transportation in a large city also
has to be found, stated Mr. Mumford.
"Money has to be diverted from other1
channels in order to ra' subway o
surface-line taxes. For a city to grow
it must spend -for means as well as
for modes of living."

DALLAS Tex., May 12-A dawn-to-
dusk flight from Michigan to Texas
the first time that a large number of
planes has been moved such a dis-
tance by the American air forces, was
made yesterday by,18 planes of the
First Pursuit Group, of Selfridge
IField, Mich., commanded by Maj,
Thomas (C. Laiphier. The distance of
the flight 'from Selfridge Field to
Kelly Field, 1,340 miles, was covered
in 11 hours and 25 minutes, flying
' The group hopped off from, Selfridge
Field at 4:50 a. n. and arrived at Kel-
ly Field shor'ly befo're 6 p. m. Central
Standard Time.
The ianes were the last arrivals
in a mobilization of 100 combat ships,
assembled at the four flying fields
around San Antonio, for participation
in the joint air and land maneuvers.-'
T:he achievement of the First Pur-
suit Group set a new record for the'
movement of a large formation over a
long distance. The dawn-to-dusk pro-
ject is one of the most important mil-
itary maneuvers of the year, accord-
ing to high Army officers, in that it
demonstrated tl'i'e possibility of keep-
ing a large pursuit force at Selfridge
Field, from where it could reach any
part of the country within 24 hours.
