Undismayed by Accident
lliliagu Tribune-Omaha B laal Wire.
Chicago, May 27. Capt. Eddie
Rickenbacker, premier American ace
and former leader of the famous 94th
aero squadron, arrived in Chicago at
5:28 o'clock tonight, after being, in
the air eight hours today. He was
piloted to Chicago by William C.
Hopson, air mail pilot.
The ace may be enabled to com
plete his trip to Washington by the
air tomorrow if plans made tonight
arc carried out. .Upon iiis arrival
here, Captain Rickcnbackcr talked
over long distance telephone to Gen
eral Mitchell, chief tit the air service
iii Washington, and was informed
that he was to get a ship from either
Fort Sheridan or Chanute field,
Kantoul, III, to complete the trip.
At Fort Sheridan it was learned
that Maj. W. K. McHord's De Havi
laud was at Ciinnute field. The ace
telephoned Major Stratemcycr,
commanding officer at Chanutc.
Must Have Order.
"Will you let me take a ship,
please, sir?" asked the ace.
"Sorry, sir; all our ships will be in
use in the flying circus," replied the
commandant. "Jf you talk to the
chief of air service and he gives rac
4he order I will send one up to you
early in the morning.
Major Stratemcycr said tonight
that he would probably receive or
ders from Washington to send Rick
enbacker a plane early tomorrow.
Rickenbacker left Cheyenne, Wyo.,
early today. He was riding in the
mail pit of a De Haviland ship flown
by C. V. lockup, the air mail pilot.
They landed in Omaha, where Rick
cnbackcr changed planes, climbing
into the ship that Hopson flew to
"A good, fast ride with a careful
pilot," was the vway the ace de
scribed the trip from Omaha. "Hop
son, who, I understand, is the ace of
the mail pilots, flies fast and safe."
"Captain Rickenbacker slept most
of the way to Chicago," said Hop
son. "Any man who goes to sleep
in the cockpit of a ship that I am
flying has nerve, my boy."
Reached Omaha About Noon.
Eddie Rickenbacker, ace of aces,

T"ie intended orignally when he
started from Redwood City, Cal., on

here but little more than an hour,
only long enough to rest a bit and eat
a rather hasty luncheon.
. Rickcnbacker-arrived in Omaha at
11:53. He was a passenger in C. V.
Pickup's air mail ship.'
Left Omaha at 1:15.
He left at 1:15, again a passenger
in an air mail plane, W. C. Hopson
was the pilot.
The two pilots with whom Rick
enbacker rode yesterday are the two
stars of the air mail service. Hop
son, who flies .. icgularly between
Omaha and Chicago, was the win
ner of The Bee's $1,000 air mail con
test. Pickup, who . flics bctwecen
Omaha and Cheyenne, won second
place after leading the field for, five
months of the six-month contest.
Rickenbacker still had faint hopes
of reaching Washington, his goal,
before daylight today.
He wired to General Mitchell, di
rector of the army plane from Oma
ha this noon asking permission to
take an army plane from Chicago
to Washington following his arrival
in the Wrindy city late yesterday aft
ernoon. ' Will Make Night Flight.
Successful in this request, Rick
cnbackcr will leave Chicago as soon
as possible after his arrival and make
a night flight to Washington.
"Bully," was Rickcnbacker's ex-
mail pit of Pickup's ship on arriving
at the local field at 11:53. "The mail
ships are O. K."
Rickenbacker was "added mail" to
both Pickup and Hopson for they
were making their regular flights and
in addition to their distinguished pas
senger they carried their regular car
goes of Uncle Sam's post.
In a pouch in-the same mail pit oc
cupied by Rickenbacker in Pickup's
ship was a package of pictures dis
patched. to The Bee from Cheyenne.

Washington, May 24. Final action

against beginning a new Pacific coast
naval base was taken today in the
senate, but other amendments to the
$495,000,000 naval appropriation bill
were not disposed of when adjourn
ment was' taken until next Tuesday,
over Memorial day. Disarma
ment proposals caused a brisk clash
over amendments of Senators Pom-crL-iie,
Ohio, and Walsh, Montana,
With the Horali amendment
"authorizing and requesting" the
president to call a three-power con
ference to discuss disarmament al
ready in the bill, Senator Poniercne
offered a supplementary amendment.
It would have authorized the presi
dent to suspend American naval con
struction for six months "in order
to arrange" the conference and if a
disarmament agreement should be
reached, to suspend construction in
part or in whole.
The proposal was beaten twice,
once on a point of order susta'ned by '
Vice President Coolidge and again .
by a record vote, 29 to 37, for sus

Walsh's amendment which

president to send American reprc- .
sentatives to sit with the disarma

nations "in a consulting capacity."
Denounced by Lodge.
This amendment was beaten, 42 to
22, after it was denounced by Sena
tor Lodge of Massachusetts, repub
lican leader, as "a side door" entrance
of America into the league.

ceded its defeat, stating that the

Clash Over Midshipmen.
The senate also clashed over the
recent dismissal of 110 midshipmen
from the naval academy at Annapo
lis. After criticism and defense of
the Annapolis authorities the sen

called for a report by the Navy de
partment as to whether any navy
yards or stations, should be aban

Waljih amendment for appointment
of Arnerican representative to the
league of nations disarmament com
mission. Its author contended that it
followed the administration's policy
of appointing representatives to sit '
with the supreme Council and the
allied reparations commission.
Senators Lodge and Watson, .
Georgia, declared that the p'roposal

"But I do not propose, for one,
to join in any way this league of

enter any side dooi' or back gate."
Senator Walsh argued that tha .
kague commission was considering
general disarmament, . while under,
the Borah plan, only naval disarma
ment would be under consideration.
That the sending of what he
termed "American observers" to the
supreme council and reparations
commission had "anything to do with '
the league," was denied by Senator '
Brandegce of Connecticut, a repub
