Naval Destroyer Is Operated at
High Speeds From Bridge
of Control Vessel.
Commander Thinks Possibilities
of Method Are Unlimited,
Not All Tried.
SAN DIEGO, Calip., July 24.-(IP)
-An unmanned destroyer maneu-
vered at high speed off San Diego
Thursday and among other things
made a 180-degree turn,ndescribed
by naval ffcers as the most start-
ing trick ever performed by a crew-
-less ship.
The ship was the U. S. S Stod-
dert, a 195-foot vessel of 1,500 tons
Everything from its whistle to its
rudder was operated by radio from
the bridge of the control ship, the
destroyer Perry, which followed in
its wake.
Control on Bridge.
Lieutenant Commander Boyd R.
Alexander, commander of the
Stoddert, and Lieutenant Comman-
der Earl H. Quinlan, commander
of the Perry, stood on the bridge
of the latter craft watching the
Stoddert. Alexander turned to a
sailor standing before a little box
bearing eight keys, resembling those
of a typewriter.
"One hundred eighty degrees
,,, f" right," Alexander said.
"One hundred eighty degrees
right, sir," said the sailor, tap-
ping the keys.
At the etheral command the
Stoddert veered from the straight
course it had maintained for miles
and swung completely about with-
out slackening speed.
Commander Alexander smiled.
"That is the first time that every
has been done," he said. "There's
a lot of machinery operating itself+
over there."
Every officer and man of the
Stoddert was transferred to the
Perry prior to the test.'
Blows Whistle.'
With a radio robot at her wheel,
the Stoddert moved out to open sea
at six knots. The Perry followed.
The speed of the Stoddert was step-
ped up to 15, then 20 knots. She
blew her whistle and blinked her1
great searchlight at radio com-
mands. Then the order "full speed
ahead" was given and she moved
at 26 knots, or about 30 miles an
hour. The radio robot was doing
the work of 60 men.
For 17 miles the Perry followed
its crewless leader. The Stoddert,
guided by mechanical hands and
electrical nerves, left a wake of
green water as straight as a string,
while the Perry, with an experi-
enced seaman at her helm, made
fiat curves with her wake across
the azure blue sea 200 yards be-

comment to make of Gov. Frank-

Boardman, Polando Are Unable
to Gain Altitude Starting
Flight to Turkey.
New York, July 24.-(IP)--Russell
Boardman and John Palando fail-
ed in an attempt to start on a non-
stop flight to Istanbul, Turkey, to-
day and were forced to dump 450
gallons of gasoline in Jamaica bay
to save themselves from crashing.
Their gasoline-laden monoplane,
unable to rise more than 100 feet,
was wallowing over the -choppy
waters of the bay when they pulled
the emergency valve and saved
themselves from possible disaster.
The airplane, lightened by the
loss of almost two-thirds of its gas-
oline supply, shot into the air.
They turned back and landed, nine
minutes after their take-off 4:52
The Boston flyers said they would
decide on their next start after get-
ting some much-needed sleep. They
had been up all night preparing for
the 5,000-mile journey. They left for
their hotel soon after landing.
But for the precautions of field
officials in removing two electric
light poles from the roadway ad-
joining the airport, the heavy plane
might have crashed.

delicately browned, and all rise properly to a light,
tempting flakiness.
