After twenty-six year of f and efficient services, the nation wn k expert was thrown out in er v's notice. The off o and attempt t e the s bara, determination to make the waters of Southern Caldinia the leading rendezvous for owners of sailing and pleasure craft, and for every kind of sea sport, on the Pacific Coast.
The heavy labor of removing the sand bars from the entrance to the new harbor and dredging the mud flats from Newport Bay has been successfully accomplished. Another of those magical transformations, so typical of California enterprise, has taken place here in visioning out natural advantages and adapting them to the use of man. As on a large scale we made over San Pedro Bay for a great commercial port, so one a small scale we have built this new harbor from what were once unnavigable waters.
Festivities and spectacles, worthy of so eventful an occasion, will for two days celebrate this latest achievement.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 17. (AP)— The creation of regular aviation passenger services across both the Atlantic and Pacific—aided by federal subsidies for both dirigible and airplane building and operation—was reported reliably tonight to have been approved by President Roosevelt.
In a move assertedly designed to help this country meet the competition of foreign "super" surgace lines, it was said the President will suggest to congress next week the construction of a giant dirigible. It would be turned over to a private company for regular passenger service to Europe.
As part of the same plan, it was said, officials hoped government aid would make possible the establishment next summer of heavier-than-air service between the Pacific Coast and Hawaii and from the east coast of Europe via Bermuda and the Azores. The subsidies would be in addition to mail payments.
Usually reliable sources, who did not care to be quoted by name, said today the President had  approved these and other proposals of his policy-forming aviation commission. Members of the commission held their final conference with him today. The report is to be sent to Congress with a special message next week.
Other recommendations in the report were asserted to be:
Creation of a permanent aviation commission which could be merged later by executive order with an expanded interstate commission which would be given control over all other forms of transportation;
Repeal of the Black-McKellar airmail law's ban on companies holding more than one main-line airmail contract or two secondary contracts;
Modification of the law requiring competitive bidding for service aircraft contracts to permit negotiated bidding at the discretion of the Federal department concerned;
Increasing the number of army and navy planes to 4000, and building a small dirigible for training purposes;
The giant transoceanic dirigible recommended by the commission would be the same size as the new Zeppelin now building in Germany, which is one and one-half times larger than the Graf Zeppelin. The latter craft has maintained regular passenger and express service between Germany and South America for several years.
If the American and German dirigibles were used in a joint service, at least one flight a week could be maintained in each direction, it was said.
The plan calls for navy officers receiving training on the dirigible a suggestion advanced by Dr. Hugo Eckener, commander of the Graf Zeppelin, when he urged the commission to recommend construction of the craft.
It is reported that the proposed aviation commission would have at least five members, and two members of the present agency are said to be under consideration for permanent posts.


  Amelia Earhart Putnam, ocean-spanning aviatrix who insists that the Putnam be added to her name, and her husband, George Palmer Putnam, New York publisher, were reunited yesterday at Los Angles Harbor.
  Putnam arrived aboard the liner Lurline from Honolulu, where he accompanied his wife several weeks ago prior to the take-off of her solo flight from Hawaii to the mainland.
  On the ship with Putnam were Paul Mantz and his wife. Mantz, Union Air Terminal flyer, was technical adviser for Mrs. Putnam in her flight.

  The aviatrix greeted her husband at quarantine, and together they motored to Toluca Lake, where Mrs. Putnam has taken a home with her mother.
  The woman flyer stated yesterday that she has "no further flights in mind" other than a leisurely return trip to New York within the next few days.
  She was enthusiastic over the establishment of a regular transport airline from the mainland to Hawaii and expressed the opinion that the current year "positively will see its inauguration."
  "Regular commercial air service between California and the islands is practical and needs only developments and refinements." she said. "The economics of the project is the only thing remaining to be worked out. Planes will have to be constructed of sufficient size and power to carry the heavy fuel load required for the flight in addition to the pay load."
  She advocated the establishment of a "landing platform" or stationary ship midway on the route to Jessen the fuel load.

  "Such a landing platform," she said, "would enable transport ships to refuel en route, and would enable them to carry heavier passenger and express loads."
  She also advocated the establishment of a radio beam along the route by which pilots could maintain their courses.
  The flyer and her husband plan to leave here tomorrow morning for Oakland, where they will be guests of honor at a civic dinner tomorrow evening at the Athens Club. Gov. Merriam will be master of ceremonies.


Covers 2,408 Miles in 18 Hrs. 16 Min.

[Copyright: 1935: By the Associated Press:]
  Oakland, Cal., Jan. 12. -(AP)-
Through clouds, fog, capricious winds, and some hair-raising silence, Amelia Earhart Putnam emerged out of Pacific skies today, landing here to complete the first solo flight ever made between Hawaii and California.
  The famous aviatrix flashed into Oakland like a red streak and landed at 3:31 p.m., Chicago time, 18 hours and 16 minutes out of Honolulu, 2,408 miles across the ocean.
  Not satisfied with two aerial trips across the Atlantic, one of them also a solo hop, and a long list of other honors already to her credit, the famous 35 year old aviatrix challenged the Pacific as no other person, man or woman, ever has, and won neatly, but not without a battle.

Crowd Is Surprised.
  So quickly was her swoop down on the airport that watchers did not recognize her swift red plane at first.
  When the crowd realized she had arrived at last, after more than three hours of anxious waiting and confusion over her whereabouts, it set up a mighty cheer and surged onto the field.
  The cockpit popped open and Miss Earhart met the oncoming hundreds with a smiling face. The feminine instinct asserted itself in the death-daring aviatrix and she pulled a com out of her heavy fur flying suit and fixed up her tousled, blonde locks.
  She didn't waste a foot of distance or a second of time. She did not circle the field as a gesture of delight over her extraordinary and exciting feat. She slid straight down to the runway and drove the plane to the very doors of a hangar.

Field Is Bedlam.
  For a moment it looked like the crowd might jam madly into the whizzing propeller, but it stopped just short of the danger line.
  The field was a Bedlam of noise, cheers, and action, colored with uncounted bouquets of American Beauty roses and other flowers for the woman who became "one up" on the male flying fraternity.
  Amelia's hair didn't need much combing despite her long overseas [[?]] and the plane stopped only for an instant before being eased into the hangar.
  First one door of the hangar was slammed shut and then the other, cutting Miss Earhart and her plane off from the milling crowd.
  Many persons reached the side of her plane and managed to grasp her hand and say a word or two before the police closed in.
  "I'm tired," were her first words.

Much Gasoline Left.
  "But I had enough gasoline left to have lasted several hours," she said, despite the fact that apprehension had arisen because of her long radio silence and the lack of position reports during the last three hours of the flight.
  A police escort took her in hand and aped to an Oakland hotel.
  Her landing here disposed of a plan disclosed early this morning by her husband, George Palmer Putman, New York publisher, to continue on to Salt Lake City if conditions proved favorable.
  Putnam had said she might continue to the Utah city about 750 miles from here, for a new distance nonstop record for women if conditions proved favorable and her gasoline supply would permit.

Feared Lost for Time.
  For almost three and a half hours prior to the landing the whole California coast was on edge over her whereabouts. She was reported variously 600 miles at sea, 50 miles from the coast, off her course, south of San Francisco, battling fog, and possibly facing the prospect of dwindling fuel tanks while still over the sea.
  All through the night the daring holder of many aviation titles flew coolly into darkness, clouds, fog, and capricious winds while hundreds of interested persons both on the mainland and in the islands strained their ears to catch the few words she spoke en route.
  She bobbed up and down through the sky to make the most of what little clear weather was available. Once she dropped from 6,000 feet to only 700 feet above the water.
