Detroit's Interest Centered
On Code For Automobile
DETROIT, Aug. 5-President Roos-
evelt's pay - raising, work - slashing
blanket NRA agreement has been
signed by 26,233 Michigan employers,
with nearly 275,000 gainful workers,
a ten-fold increase during the week,
it was announced Saturday by Man-I
ager A. J. Barnaud, of the Detroit
office of the United States Depart-
ment of Commerce.
More than half of all signatories
are Detroit firms, indicating that
more than two-thirds of the known
18,000 employers have extended their
co-operation to the President.
Code negotiations which are pend-
ing are expected to bring 200,000 or
more Detroit workers under Nira's
"blue eagle" during the week.
Detroit's interest was centered on
the code of the automobile industry,
with its thirty-five-hour maximum
week, and 40-to-43 cents-an-hour
minimum wage. Fixing of the hear-
ing date was awaited, with the ex-
pectation it would be about the mid-
dle of the week.
President Alvan Macauley, of
Packard, and all directors of the
National Automobile Chamber of
Commerce are expected to participate
in the hearing before Col. Robert W.
Lea. Although labor is expected to
object to the "open shop" provision
in the code, Gen. Johnson has mdi-
cateed provisionally that this is not
in conflict with the spirit of the.
Recovery Act. Ly
G e.; Abher E La.ed's Recovery
Army made ready for flag-raising

stressing Detroit activities. The first
of these will be the raising of a blue
flag by Larned, denoting the City's

BROOKLYN, N. Y., Aug. 5.-(P)-
A trans-Atlantic flight "to nowhere"
began today when Lieut. Maurice1
Rossi and Paul Codos, French avia-
tors, took off from Floyd Bennett
Field at 4:41 a. in., in an attempt to
set a distance record.
They planned to cross the ocean
by way of Cape Sable, N. S.,, and the
great circle route and then "just
keep on going." Persia, Africa or
Russia may be their landing place,
they indicated, but they would prefer
to land in Karachi, India. Their di-
rection after reaching the Scilly
islands, off the English coast, will be
determined by weather.
The record they seek to smash is

The monoplane of Rossi and Codos
is called the "Joseph Le Brix" in
honor of the famous French flyer
who was killed in 1931, and it carried
1,770 gallons of gasoline. This tre-

crash on the takeoff, and as a re-

apparatus was assigned to the field,
along with police emergency squads.

wishing to sign President Hoover's
blanket agreement to increase pur-
chasing power, Johnson issued a for-
mal statement challenging interpre-

over the country that the chief ex-
ecutive might exercise his power to
cancel or modify any order or ap-
proval and thereby change the terms
of the agreement.
Taking precedent, however, from
all other developments was the ap-
peal to spokesmen of business and
their employees not to precipitate
strikes during the economic emer-
gency. Described by Johnson as "the
most significant thing that has hap-
pened yet in this movement" the
joint statement, in the words of
President Roosevelt, "proposed the

yesterday, easily proved to be the
most popular of the summer's sched-

bers of the large party became so
interested in certain features of the
institution that prison officials were
at - wits' end to ascertain whether
the entire Michigan party had suc-

well received by the visitors who de-
