PRICE'6e COFS ARSON PROBE IN SHIP BLAZE The News Review •By BRUCE CATTON- ft ft ft ft ft ft , ft PUROPEAN strategists believe that the next war will be a war of rapid movement, with trench warfare almost obsolete, and the infantry occupying a secondary place. <•'• Italian experts say their recent army maneuvers show Unit assault !>y fust tanks and swift-moving shock troop detutchments will break and trench line and force the fighting out i nllin open. Britain creates its first permanent tank brigade; France studies the movement of troops by airplane, and American authorities agree that the trench warfare is' probably a thing of the past. All this reflect the force which new inventions ar exerting.

Efforts toward n .settlement, of the controversy were at a standstill as the .strike entered its second week after the manufacturers had rejected an arbitration proposal by labor. Francis J. Gorman, national strike leader, had proposed that the mediation hoard headed by Governor John G. Winant of New Hampshire summon George A. Sloan, head of the textile institute, and other employers' representatives, while Gorman and union leaders would represent labor. Sloan termed the proposals "of n character that makes them utterly impossible from every standpoint." Sloan met with the mediation board todH&/ta,coriUpuG the manufacturers' Side 67 -tlie conflict.

For a long, long time before that, the mass army which depended on sheer weight of numbers for its triumph was practically unheard of. Even the largest nations had small armies, by modem standards. Military science was formalized and delicate. It took years to create a pro- fcsional soldier; one created, however, lie was invincible to all opponents, except those as fully trained as himself.

Launched in Fire Luxurious Liner Incendiary Is Suspected by Chief Officer of Morro Castle OTHERS TO TESTIFY Dock Hand Will Give Ver-, sion of Disaster—Death'' List Is Reduced ASBURY PARK, N. . —(VP)— A terrific blast which sent sparks and flam-, ing cinders high in the air Monday ' prevented searchers from boarding the hull of the Morro Castle, liner which caught fire Saturday, causing loss of more than a hundred lives. Firemen had planned to board the ship and use hose to extinguish the fire. Cause of the explosion has not bee'n determined. Two bodies, both of them ' j men, washed upon the shore Monday. A second explosion occurred about half an hour after the first blast, again sending .a shower of sparks and cinders into the air. Meanwhile a government inquiry into the fire was begun at New York. Arson Theory Given Chief Officer William F. Warms, master of the ship at the time of the fire, told the inquiry board that he suspected the blaze was starred by an incendiarist. Warms said he based his belief on the fact that an incendiary attempt was made on the boat on its previous voyage. . . «He also thought significant the fact htat the blaze was discovered in the ship's locker which "blew out" at the start of the fatal fire. When, speaking about the earlier fire, Warms said "someone set it" Inspector General Dickerson N.

"I found charred .paper on the cargo," he said. The companys formal report of that fire, produced at the hearings, agreed with the details of the chief officer's story. 'I think somebody put something in that locker that burned and smoltered fire a long time," Warms testified. "It smoked, and we saw that smoke first, and then it-burst into flames." "Any other place?' asked Hoover. "The only other place seemed to be the lounge," "Then," said Hoover, "you base your belief that the fire was set on your previous experience and the fire in the locker.' "Yes sir." "Do you think that lightning hit the ship?' ''That was not true."
