Naval officials awaiting the arriv
al of the world-girdling Graf Zep
pelin estimated tonight that the
giant craft would reach here be
tween six and seven a. m. tomor
row, eastern standard time. They
emphasized that the estimate was
based on data available at the time
and that developments might hast
en or retard the ship's progress.
hurst, N. J., Aug. 28 (AP)
The world circling dirigible Graf
Zeppelin was within talking dis
tance of this terminal tonight,
and was expected to land early
When the Graf does land it will
gain for itself several records. It
will have circumnavigated the
world In less time than wa3 ever
done before, it will be the first
airship ever to fly around the
world, and it will be the first air
craft of any kind to have made a
non-stop flight across the Pjcitic.
From approximately 1,000
miles away the Graf spoke to the
air station by wireless late this
afternoon, the first direct com
munciation since before It left
Friedrichshafen, Germany, Its
home port, on its eastward loop
around the world.
Preparations Finished
For Big Reception
The message was brief, saying
merely that the great ship ex
pected to reach Lakehurst tomor
row morning. As soon as this
word was received naval officers
here completed preparations for
the reception. Boundary lights
were ordered"fefiiburning-during
the night and landing crews were
assigned to quarters whre they
could be routed from bed at a mo
ment's notice.
The great hangar was strangely
empty tonight as it waited for its
huge occupant. The navy dirigi

at the air races and the two little
navy blimps cowered in a corner
like frightened puppies.

The most imposing array of air

here today in a mighty spectacle
of the air, a kaeidoscopic succes

magnitude and daring never be

The navy flyers, Lieut. F. N.

to the ground as fast as gravity

THE HAGUE, Aug. 29
(Thursday) (AP) The allied
creditors of Germany after two
long conferences yesterday and
another which lasted late into the
night, were unable to obtain ac
quiscence by Germany to the rep
arations plan which they had
agreed upon between themselves.
Adjournment was taken until 10
a.m., today.
The Germans demanded as
compensation for releasing their
interests in surplus payments un

British Forces Leaving
German Territory
The British have already begun
to evacuate the German territory
and have announced they would
push it to a quick conclusion. The
French and Belgians, on whom
would fall the cost of continued
occupation if the Germans are re
lieved of It, were unwilling last
night to accept the German the

the differences was readily appar
ent it was decided to adjourn the
meeting of the big six to this
morning to enable the delegations
separately to seek a way for ob
taining German adhesion to the
acord of the creditors. '
So confident had the delegates
been that the last obstacle In the
way of agreement would be sur
