Maw announced Monday night that he would send his nominations for the new public welfare commission to the state senate Tuesday morning. The appointees, who are subject to confirmation by the senate, are: David R. Trevithick (D), Ogden, for the six-vear term. J. Parley White (R), Salt Lake City, for the four-year term. Sophus Bertelson (D), Ephraim, for the two-year term Earlier Action Earlier in the day the governor sent to the senate the following nominations for the business regulation department: George S. Ballit (D), Provo, for the six-year term. Heber Bennion Jr., (D), Manila, lor the four-yoar term. Oscar W. Carlson (R), Salt Lake City, for the two-year term. The governor did not designate the chairman for either commission but the presumption is that the six-year term appointees (Mr. Trevithick and Mr. Ballif) will occupy those positions. Kirst Since Hyde The nominations were the first submitted by the governor for the reorganized commissions, except for Gordon Taylor Hyde, who was appointed to the finance commission and confirmed during the first special session. Mr. Trevithick has been an instructor in the Weber college English department since 1933, except for 12 months in 1937 and 1938 when he studied at the Universities of London and Paris. Public Figure Debate Starts On Eligibility Of Appointee The question of the eligibility of state legislators for appointment to positions in the reorganized state government was placed squarely before the senate Monday when Governor Herbert B. Maw's nomination for the business regulation commission were received. For this commission the governor proposed George S. Ballif, Provo attorney, for the six-year term; Heber Bennion Jr., Manila rancher, for the four-year terni, and Oscar W. Carlson, Salt Lake City attorney and a Republican, for the two-year term. The eligibility issue was raised by the nominnlion of Representative Bennion, a member of the present legislature, which enacted the reorganization program into law. The specific question posed vyus whether the business regulation commission posts are new ones created : by-.the twenty-fourth legislature or whether that commission is in fact the' old public..service commission with a new name and expanded functions. A constitutional • provision bars' legislators from positions ,i'n the event ihe legislature of which he Is a member created the post or increased the salary therefor. Names Referred The nominations were read to the senate and immediately referred to the committee on appointments and confirmations. ' The committee did not meet Monday, but Chairman Byron A. Howard (D), Huntington, said that a session would be held Tuesday at 1 p. m. Presumably the nominations will be considered at that time.

It appeared to have been an action in which the tanks themselves had no pa,rt, for hours after the report of their arrival there was no information that they had been in use, and British informants cautiously suggested that the spectacular job of ferrying them to the island might have been in vain. They added that the Junker 89, the type of air carrier presumably used, could Vmrdly accommodate a vehicle larger than a ' sevcn- tonner and these were "extremely small machines." The : possibility was acknowledged, however, that 14-ton tanks might have been knocked down to be transported in different planes and reassembled upon landing. The successful German", assault Just west of ,Canea was met, 'said British middle east headquarters, with nn immediate counterattack by Now Zealanders—backbone of Crete's defenses. The latest' word, with the outcome of the German thrust still in the balance, was that fierce, hand- to-hand fighting was continuing CContinucri on Pane Five) (Column Otic) G O P in House Loses Test On Money Bill German Warship And Foe Lock In New Struggle Destroyer of Hood Fighting 'Overwhelming' Force in North Atlantic, Berlin Admits By United Press • British naval forces and the German battleship Bismarck, which last Saturday sank the British battle cruiser Hood, were reported early Tuesday to be locked in what may prove to be one of the most dramatic sea battles in history. Within five days of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the battle of Jutland, naval turning point of the World war, the German high command announced that the Bismarck had been engaged "in a severe battle by superior enemy forces" since 9 p. m. (12 noon, mountain standard time) Monday. Earlier British fleet bombers had sent an aerial torpedo 'smashing into the Bismaxck, London announced. It was fleeing through North Atlantic mists from a "death hunt" of British sea and air forces seeking vengeance for the destruction of the battle cruiser Hood. The new British battleships King George V and Prince of Wales, fastest and most powerful men-'o- war in the world and the only ships capable of battling the Bismarck on even terms, may be driving in to the "kill" along the crippled Bismarck's path of flight. It was said. Berlin Reports Battering of Crete Defense Says Invading Force, Planes Ini'licl Heavy British Losses BERLIN, May 25 UP>—German ground troops supported by bombers inflicted heavy losses on tho British defenders of Crete in fierco fighting Monday, authorized German sources reported Monday night . The planes "successfully bombed English troop concentrations and field positions" in the? western area, which Berlin said is controlled by nazi parachutists, and "the enemy suffered heavy losses," these sources said. They told also of pilots seeing a heavy British cruiser in the sea near the island with the fore and midship sections "fully burned out" and a fire still raging astern. A burned and beached British destroyer also was sighted, it was said, as the nazi press stressed Slowed Up Blsmmrck The Sorpedo-hit on ' the zigzagging Bismarck apparently gave British warships a chance to catch up vyith their quarry and try to avenge the destruction of the 42.100-ton Hood off Greenland early Saturday with great loss of life. Earlier the British admiralty had said that the "hot pursuit" of th^ Bismarck continues. But naval experts warned against any rampant optimism. "Too many things can happen in thousands of miles of sea and since we are not sure how close the British warships are to her now the Bismarck might easily be lost in the hours of darkness or in fog," it was said. Berlin's brief special communi- que intimating the Bismarck was cornered was telephoned to foreign correspondents at 2 a. m., too late for publication in the
