Eddie Schneider, Jersey City aviator, said Friday he was signed up by a New York lawyer to serve in the war at $1,500 a month. Schneider was questioned by John F. Dailey, Jr., assistant United States attorney, who announced he would seek indictments from the federal grand jury next week against several New Yorkers in connection with the enlistment of American aviators for Spanish service. The flier said he quit the war to comply with President Roosevelt's neutrality policy end that the Spanish embassy in Paris advanced him his fare home pending payment of his salary. Schneider said he participated in daily bombing raids in Spain for three weeks, flying remodeled sport planes and dropping bombs through a hole in the cockpit floor.
