BRITAIN PLANNING
DIRIGIBLE AIRLINE
ACROSS ATLANTIC
(By Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 10.-British
interests soon will begin a trans-At-
lantic dirigible mail and passenger
service with American governmental
cooperation. The dirigible R-1000,
now under construction in England,
will make her first trip across within
three months, using as her American
terminal the naval air station moor-
ing mast at Lakehurst, N. J.
Details of the plan were announced
by Secretary Hoover, who held con-
ferences with British representatives
here. Other conferences will be held
with the postoffice department with a
view to giving the R-100 a special

mail contract at a premium postage
rate, such as the land air mail serv-
ices are accorded.
Americans will be invited to join
the enterprise, Mr. Hoover said, if the
trial trips of the first dirigible are
successful. In that event a number
of additional air cruisers will be built.
The R-100 is designed to carry 100
passengers and 10 tons of mail. Its
tentative schedule calls for a western
trip of 48 hours and a return requir-
ing 38 hours.
C. Dennis Burney, member of the
British parliament, is representing
the English sponsors of the project
in conferences with officials here. He
has been advised by the aeronautic
section of the commerce department
that it will apply to the dirigible only
the treatment given foreign ships in
American harbors, which means that
British regulations and supervision
with respect to the liner's safety and
design would be accepted by this gov-
ernment.

The Izaak Walton League of Amer-
ica, national outdoor recreation and
conservation organization, is broad-
casting an appeal to its members
throughout the United States to back
a number of bills in Congress provid-
ing for reconstruction or conserva-
tion of outdoor areas.
Prominent among the bills are
those calling for restoration of the
of the Bear river marshes in Utah
and the Cheyenne bottoms intKansas
as wildfowl centers. In both cases
this would be accomplished by flood-
ing the land, according to league of-
ficials.
Other bills call for purchase of
National Forest lands in the East,
purchase of haylands in the West to
irovide winter feed for the Yellow-
stone elk herds, for making a public

park of the Potomac river valley in
the vicinity of Washington, now
thre tened by commercial develop-
ment; creation of a new National
park in Arkansas.
