est idea what kind of a job it is, and
he isn't worrying himself much about
Some one has suggested to the
president that if his recent state-
ment declaring he did not choose to
run for re-election in 1928 really
meant his retirement from the White
House, he would need to be looking
around for something to do after
March 4, 1929, and Mr,. Coolidge em-
phasized that that was correct.
But he has let it be known that
work has never found any difficulty
in coming his way and he believes it

Doesn't Intend To Run
Thus the president has given
notice to the country that he has no
intention of running for another
term. For further emphasis it has
been said at the summer White House
that Mr. Coolidge will not call anoth-
er conference on, the limitation of
naval arm'aments because he believes
he wc'ud be out of office before such
a meeting could be convened, delibe-
rate and any treaty coming out of it
could be acted upon by the senate.
o. H. P. Shelley, former national
committeeman for Montana, professes'
to have additional evidence that the
president believes he will have served
ong enough by March, 1929. He said
dr. Coolidge told him there were plen-1
y of good men in the United States
o take his place.
"This is not a one-man country,"
Shelley quoted the president.
"There are plenty of good men in
he United States. Ten years is a
nighty long time for one man tot

In letting it be known, however,

Pilot Restrains

From Seizing
Motor And

Plane's Second
Spare 'Parts


(By Associated Press)
PARIS, Aug. 6.-The great Farman
biplane "Bluebird," which Maurice
Drouhin abandoned for what he be-
lieved to be a quicker chance to get
across the Atlantic with the transat-
lantic monoplane "Columbia," today
was ready to take off at soon as the
weatherman gave permission. The
"Columbia" also groomed and, ready
for the flight, was paralyzed by' the
legal conflict between Drouhin and
Charles A. Levine.
The controversy between the owner
of the "Columiba" and the French
aviator led to a sharp discussion
among Levine's and Drouhin's friends,
and confidential adviser, M. Mathis,
this afternoon, when Levine accused
Mathis of making trouble, the
Frenchman retorted : "You didn't
talk that way when you begged me to
go and get Drouhin away from Far-
man. No one asked anything of you,
but to make good, that's all."
Levine's answer to this was an at-
tempt to get possession, of the "Co-
lumbia's" second motor and spare
parts shipped from the United States.
Workers had tools under the case and
were ready, to hoist it on a motor
truck, when Drouhin's lawyer, arriv-
ing in the nick of time, called a halt.
The lawyer informed the director of
the air unit in whose shed the
"Columbia" is housed that Drouhin
had a claim against the owner of the
motor and spare parts, as well as the
plane itself. He showed documents
in Drouhin's suit to compel Levine tof
ive up to the terms of what Drouhin
claims to be the contract fsr the ,
flight. Thereupon the doors of theE
shed were ordered closed.
Levine then called at the office of!
Drouhin's lawyer and was told that{
all that Drouhin wanted was that the
nsurance and forfeit fund of $300,000
francs (about $12,000) be deposited in
bank. Levine replied that he would
have to cable New 'York to arrange
or the transfer of the money. Both
ides then agreed to allow matters to
est as they are until Monday, en-'
deavoring in the meantime to frame a
contract satisfactory to both of them.

Bombing Also Reportel In Baltimore,
Philadelphia, Buenos Aires,
And lonteviedo
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Aug. 6.-The explosion
of two bombs last night wrecked two
subway stations, tied up for several
hours two main underground arteries
of Manhattan and injured a score of
persons, and provided police today
with a mystery as perplexing as any
they have ever tried 'to solve.
Hours after the explosion no trace
of the two bombs had been found and
although one man was under arrest
police vacillated between belief that
sympathizers with Nicola Sacco and
Bartholomeo Vanzetti, radicals await-
ing execution for murder in Boston,
had set (he bombs or that the bomb-
ing was the work of persons with a
grievance agai'ist the transit com-
pany, finaally switching to the latter.
Suspect Taken
Maurice Seitel, the man under ar-
rest, was taken into custody a few
rours after the explosion. A patrol-
man found him peering into a window
of St. Patrick's cathedral about a mile
north of the bombed station. He was
described as a Russian, 14 years in
America. A search of his room dis-
closed a newspaper photograph of a
bombing scene and a book, "The Life
History of a Traitor" This was a
story of a Russian spy.
Police said the book told of work-
ing in western harvest fields, and
he declared -he was not convinced
that Sacco and Vanzetti had a fair
trial and that he expressed himself
as opposed to capital punishment.
After a rigorous examination, Seitel
was held without bail on the charge
of being implicated with the bomb ex-
plosion, but William Ryan, assistant
district attorney, said he had no proof
that Seitel was guilty and had asked
that he be held~only as a precau-
Report :Denied
The New York Sacco-Vanzetti de-
fense have ridiculed the idea that
the bomb had been placed by friends
of the radicals.
"We have waged a peaceful strug-
gle for seven years," Rose Baron, se-
retary of the Sacco-Vanzetti commit-
tee said, "ud it is ridiculus to think
we would now resort to outrages."
The police belief in a Sacco-an-
zatti connection was fostered by re-
ports of bombing in'Baltimore, Pila-
delphia, buneos Aires, and Monte-
video, but they said that at no time
dd they have any proof. Shortly af-
tr a transit strike was settled seve-
r, days ago, a bomb" was found in
subway. Police declined to give in-
crmation regarding their switch to
he theory that persons with a griev-
nice against the trasit company had
placed the bomb.
Situations D'eserted
The bombs were placed in the 28th
treet station of the Manhattan' and
nterborough Rapid Transit comliany,
ne on Fourth avenue and the other
n Broadway. ' Neither is an express
stop, and just before midnight, the

ributed this to the fact that the lab-
rers had been rushed to the stations

o clear the lines. Despite the police
heory, a strict guard was established'
on all transit lines. Commissioner
Warren cancelled all police vacations
and said that he would hold his force
of 14,000 men ready for emergency.
