Of The DAY.
(By Tire Associated Press)*
House Criticizes Navy's
Hunt For Miss Earhart
WASHINGTON, July 9.-(1)-The
House rang today with criticism of
the Navy's search for Amelia Ear-
hart.
Representative Scott (Dem., Cal.)
expressed belief it is about time some-
one in authority announced the Navy
will not be used to search for "pub-
licity stunt" fliers in the future.
"Do you think if some poor fish-
erman, the father of a family, got
himself lost out on the Pacific, the
Navy would be spending $250,000 a
day to look for him?" interposed Rep-
resentative Faddis, (Dem., Pa.).
Representative Collins, (Dem.,
Miss.) declared this country would
have slight chance of winning a war
if its air forces performed no bet-
ter than the navy has done in hunt-
ing the aviatrix.
"Miss Earhart was forced down in
easy flying distance of Honolulu more
than a week ago," he said, "and if
news accounts can be believed only
three planes have reached the spot."
Although the Navy claims it has
planes with a cruising radius of 3,000
to 4,000 miles, Collins added, "we
are told that airplane carriers must
go to the area."
12,000 Scouts Leave
Washington Jamboree
WASHINGTON, July 9.- (R) --
More than 12,000 of the 26,000 Boy
Scouts who came here 10 days ago
for mass demonstrations of their
handicraft started home today.
Honor Scouts lowered the colors1
of 52 nations, 24 of which were rep-
resented by at least one Scout, to end
the jamboree. Dr. James E. West,
Chief Scout Executive ,said the as-
embly had been "highly successful
from every standpoint."

conveyance.
Dean Yoakum will have his office
to the right of a central lobby. Other
administrative offices will be located
here, as well as a board room and
offices of the Rackham Foundation.
A large study hall on the second
floor is the second largest room in the
structure. On this floor also will be
found a men's reading room in the
right wing, and a women's in the
left. The mezzanine floor will con-
tain exhibition rooms, while the third
floor, besides having an assembly
room and two rooms for informal
meetings, will have a second and
smaller auditorium for lectures. It
will seat approximately 300 people.
The future has been provided for
in thegconstruction, Mr. Martin said.
Wiring, piping, and conduit work for
radio and phonograph facilities have
been planned, as well as arrange-
ments for a projection room for slides
and movies. With the aid of re-
search and the advice of the best
authorities in the field, provisions
have been made for television, in
anticipation of the coming develop-
ment.

Guard authorities to coordinate the
search.
