Ruth Nichols Flies Plane, 'Newl
Cincinnati' Across Nation
in 1312 Hours.
Makes Trip in Stock Lockheed
Vega Plane; Stops
in Wichita.
(13v Assoriaed Press)
NEW YORK, Dec. 10.-Ruth Nic- -
hols flew her fleet monoplane "New
Cincinnati" passed all the trans-
continental records of her own sex
and took her place right up among
the best of the masculine fliers to-
day by completing a two-day one-
stop flight, from coast to coast, in
13 hours, 21 minutes and 43 sec-
In a borrowed ship, a stock model
from the Lockheed Vega factory
loaned to her for the trip by a rad-
io company (Crosey) of Cincinnati,
she came into Witchita, Kan., in
six hours, 21 minutes and 43 sec-
onds, which was believed to be the
fastest journey of its length ever
made by man or woman in unbrok-
en flight. The distance is 1,300
Flying Time Beats Lindy.
Her actual flying time bettered
the previous mark of Charles A.
Lindbergh and Captain R o s c o c
Turner by upward of an hour, al-
though her elapsed time was great-
er by virtue of an overnight stop
in Witchita to rest. The only faster
flying time on record tonight for
the 2,300-mile coast-to-coast jour-
ney was that of Captain Frank:
Taking off from Los Angeles yes-
terday morning, the society girl
flier set her plane down at Witchi-
ta seven hours and on e miinute1
later, an hour behind the record-
breaking time of Captain Halawks
and five minutes behind that of
Lindbergh last Easter S u n d a y.
Starting from Witchita at 7:41 (E.
S.T.) this morning she rode a tail
wind into New York to finish a
journey from the Pacific shores al-
most nine hours ahead of the best
previous time of a woman, 21 hours'
and 47 minutes, the mark made
last October by Mrs. Keith-Miller.
Battled Bad Storm.
The young woman from Rye, N.
Y., who flies because she enjoys it,s
climbed from her plane at Roose-
velt Field, wiped the smudge of oil
and dirt from her face, and told
how yesterday she battled a Rocky
mountain storm for two hours and
today she flew blind for tie same
length of time.
Between Witchita and St. Louis,
she said, rain squalls beat against
her windshield in such fury she of-
ten had to lean out the side win-
dow of her cabin to look ahead and
gauge her height above the ground.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 10. - The
disgruntled Senate forces were call-
ed upon to enter a new co-opera-
tion for emergency relief today byI
Senator Robinson, of Arkansas, the
Democratic leader, as he ascribed
to bad temper President Hoover's
denunciation of Congressional pro-
posals that fell outside the presi-
dential program.
A $110,000,000 emergency public
works measure progressed slowly
as the Democrats struck back at
Mr. Hoover's statement that somet
members were "playing politics at
the expense of human misery,"
with Senator Robinson finally com-j
ing before a crowded chamber to
plead for co-operation for a full-
fledged relief program at cost, if
necessary, of a bond issue or in-
^reased taxes.
"We have proceeded to an un-
fortunate position," the Demo-
e ratic leader said in even tones and
with obvious restraint. "The presi-
dent lost his temper and made a,
Statement that, of course, is to be
condemned. For my part I do not
propose to follow the example."
Robinson warned that by co-
operation he did not mean the fol-
lowing of any particular leadership
but a common purpose to reach a;
common ground "in the enactment!
of measures for the welfare of our

the statement of Morton Frank, '33,

The judges for the contest will be
Prof. Edwin C. Goddard, of the Lawv

of the speeches will be based two-

DeHaas has been a colorful figure
in world affairs since 1896, when he
became secretary to Theodore Herzl.
A leader of World 7ionism for more
than a quarter of a century, he left
the Zionist organization of America
'in 1920, with Supreme Court Justice
Brandeis, who resigned as presi-
dent. Together with Justice Bran-
deis, Judge Julian Mack and Prof.
Felix Frankfurter, he was instru-
mental in founding the council for
the development of Palestine and
the Near East.
Dr. DeHaas was a delegate to the
Versailles conference of 1919, as
well as a co-author of the Balfour
declaration of Great Britain. He
has recently figured in the press as
'an opponent of the Lord White
paper issued by England.
