When fellow-countrymen are killed, it is hard to ask "where were they, and what were they doing there?" ' T. W. Gregory, attorney-general under Woodrow Wilson, wrote in 1925 that "up to the time that Germany began its atrocious submarine warfare, culminating in the sinking of the Lusitania, we had far less cause for complaint against her than we had against Great Britain ..." The strictly commercial complaints had not yet become decisive. One hundred twenty-four Americans, many of them prominent, went gasping down to death in the Irish Sea when a German submarine, seeking to sink indiscriminately and without warning all British shipping, sand the luxury liner. Though it was two years (from May 7, 1915, to April 6, 1917, before war actually was declared, there is no doubt that the Lusitania's .sinking remained a primary cause for America's entering tJic Stalled Truck Is Blamed for Crash WASHINGTON.—(/Pi—Senator Robinson of Arkansas, tin; Democratic ; lender, Monday night accused Herbert j Hoover of "misstatements and distor- ; lions" in his Oakland speech attacking Clyde Knigliton, 40, critically ill with jNcw Deal spending and policies, '.wo bullet wounds in his body, has i In ,1 .statement issued through tho been removed from Josephine hospital j Democratic National Committee, Robinson asserted "Mr. Hoover's statement is what might reasonably have been expected of an ex-president, de,o here to his home at Stamps, physicians announced Tuesday.

The injured arc: Miss Elizabeth Middlebrooks, Miss Louise Hanogan, Archie Chambless and John Barlow. None are seriously hurt. Miss Middlebroks, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Middlebrooks, was in bed Tuesday at her home on Park Drive. She is suffering from injuries about the head and body. An X-ray examination revealed no brokenbones. Miss Hanegan, daughter of Mrs. A. F. Hanegan, 821 South Elm, was also confined to her bed. She is suffering from' a head injury and shock. Her condition is not serious. John Barlow, proprietor of Hotel Barlow, escaped with slight bruises. Archie Chambless, youthful employe of the hotel, sustained injuries about the face and head. The accident occurred four miles west of Prescott on Highway 67. Mr. Barlow, driver of the car, said that he came upon the truck at a bridge. The truck, Mr. Barlow said, was parked in the middle of the highway. The gasoline supply had given out. After the crash, Missus Middlebrooks and Hanegan, and young Chambless were taken to a hospital at Prescott for treatment. Returning to the scene of the accident, Mr. Barlow said the truck had disappeared. Its occupants, about half a dozen men, who witnesses the accident, also had disappeared. Their names were not learned. Preceding the crash this tide of Prescott, Mr. Barlow, Miss Hanegan, Miss Middlebrooks and a young man whose name was given as Peterson, had escaped injury in n minor accident near Arkadelphia.

' *.-, By CirARLESF. NUTTER Associated Press Correspondent LONDON.— (IP)— Recognized by British military strategists here as the greatest weakness in any Italian effort to subjugate Ethiopia is the perilously thin and dangerous long line of Italian communications. Modernizing the old adage that anfe>; army moves on its stomach, observers here point out the almost staggering problems and supply involved in Mussolini's East African campaign. A single break in this long line of communications, which stretches back from Eritrea nearly 3,000 miles to Italian ports, might turn a victorious march of blackshirts into the stupendous debacle of a retreat of 250,000 starving, thirsty men, Suez Canal Called Vital Up to Eritrea the line of supplies stretches through peaceful frieindly waters and country, provided the vital Suez canal is not closed. Observers believe such a step would turn the East African campaign into a nightmare of route. At Eritrea, however, Mussolini's real problem, of keeping his line of supplies open through enemy country, begins. It is well beyond 500 miles from Asmara to Addis Ababa—and the route lies through swamps and across deserts, high mountains and deep canyons. Use of wheeled vehicles through thi.s country is'impossible, and probably could be accomplished only after years of labor by Italian road and bridge builders. A foot and upon mules, horses and camels, Mussolini must be prepared | to move supplies along this perilous route toward tho Ethiopian capital. Every foot of the ground is certain to | he contested by savage fighters, challenging not alone the iirmy vanguards but the thousands of troops who must he loft at periodic intervals to guard the line of supply.
