Jimenez And Iglesias Escorted
Brazilian Capital By
C Four Planes


(By Associated Pres)
RIO DE JANEIRO, March 28.-
Captains Jimenez and Iglesias this
afternoon reached the goal toward
which they headed their plane
when it took off from Seville, Spain,
'ast Sunday and received as tumul-
tuous a welcome as if they had not
been forced by shortage of gaso-
line to come down at Bahia, 800
miles north of their objective.
Four Brazilian airplanes took off
from Campo Dos Affonsos at 3:15
o'clock this afternoon and headed
northward to give the Spanish
aviators escort to the Brazilian
capital. More than 2,000 persons
had travelled the 18 hitles out to
the field in automobiles and trains.
At 4:30 o'clock the Spanish air-
plane, Jesus del Gran Poder, was
sighted coming through the en-'
trance to the famous harbor at the
head of a wedge formation formed
by the Brazilian planes. The crowd
broke into a prolonged cheer as the
olanes appeared from the gray
clouds just outside the harbor.
They swung over the city and then
landed at 4:45.
Members of the Spanish colony
received the fliers and they were
immediately besieged by photog-
raphers and reporters. The Span-
iards left Bahia at 8:30 o'clock this
morning and maintained an aver-
age speed of 100 miles an hour.
They have now flown more than
4,800 miles in two hops since leav-
ing Seville.

tion" of the Richads Oakland I

cast consisted of the musical se-
lections from "Forward March,"

which concluded a week's run at
I the Whitney theater last Saturday!

Due to the length of the mu-j
sical numbers, only two talks werej
presented last night, one of which
was also related especially to the a
interests of the women. Mary B.-
Henderson, executive secretary of
the Alumnae Council, who has led
the movement through which the
women of the University have
been able to raise the $1,250,000
fund for the construction of the I

Explains Building Plans «
Mrs. Henderson spoke at length
Eof the layout of the new building
for women of the University which
will be opened for the first time1
on May 4, and which will be form-'
ally dedicated on June 14, during
the week of Commencement. She
also praised the work of the women
on the campus toward the goal of
the complete structure and es-
pecially the efforts of the alumnae.
In conclusion Mrs. Henderson
made a plea for all outstanding'
pledges to be paid in order that by
the time the building is formally'

dedicated in June all outstanding
bills will have been met without the
necessity of borrowing funds.
The other talk on last night's
program was given by Dr. Walter
R. Parker, professor of Ophthal-
mology and specialist in eye ail-
ments in the University hospital.
Dr. Parker in speaking on the
topic, "The Child's Eyes," told why
the children's eyes should be care-

ailments and the means of correct-
