PAGE SIX Squalus Is Towed Into Portsmouth Navy to Begin Removing '.Bodies of 6 From Tragic Vessel PORTSMOUTH. N. H. - The Submarine Squalus was towed into Portsmouth navy yard Wednesday night 113 (lays after sinking with a loss of 2fl lives during a routine dive. Towed by the tugs Wandank and John G. Chandler, the all-started submarine grounded a few feet from pier 6. Salvagers towed the Squalus up the HseaUqu 1 ' river to the yard at low slack tide and expected it would rise and be berthed when the tide was high at 2 .1. m. Thursday. It was understood that all but navy men would be ordered Crom the yard at that time and the 26 bodies of the crew removed immediately. Undertakers from Boston were called to assist Portland morticians in dressing the corpses. Thousands of person jammed the waterfront to see the ship towed from it grace off Rye beach to Ports- muiith. Cars were parked on both sides of all highways and extra police were called to keep some semblance of order. Salvagers, except when weather in- terierred, have worked steadily on the navy's "greatest engineering project" since May 23 when the Squalus sank with 58 men aboard. Thirty- three were rescued by a diving bell— the first time such equipment had been used under emergency conditions. A naval inquiry board questioned survivors and in a preliminary finding reported that faulty operation of the main induction valve probably caused the disaster. The board is expected to meet later this week to inspect the S4.300.000 ship, which then will be drydockcd for repairs.

Corrfmissioner Mchlburger will dissent from the order and issue a minority opinion rejecting the application. "The majority opinion will revise proposed financial structure. The initial contract rate of 10 cents (per 1000 feeU will be approved subject to commission review and may be limited to require setting up a sinking fund for reimbursement to consumers of all or part of earnings, if any, be found above a fair return. "Applicant may be required to serve Saratoga, Fulton. Bradley and McNab and build feasible extensions. "This unusual procedure of notifying parties of the corn'mission's decision prior to issuance of the order is taken in the public interest so that applicant may secure pipe and other purchases under existing commitments rather than run the risk of increased material, costs." The commission's notice that it would require a revision of the financial structure referred to the Louisiana Nevada having incorporated with S1000 capital stock. At a recent lengthy public hearing. President W. A. Dc- laney said the company would put up 5100.000 cash if the commission desired. The Louisiana-Nevada has contracted to furnish the cement plant and the Hope interests gas at 10 cents per 1000 cubic feet, about one third less than the rate charged by the Arkansas Louisiana. Hope intervened to urge the granting of the permit The Louisiana-Nevada obtained pcivnit from the Federal Power Commission before the state agency held its hearing. The Arkansas Louisiana has asked the federal commission to rescin its original order. In bnofs filed with the state com- mit.sion recently, attorneys for trc Louisiana-Nevada said they anticipated the other company would file suit if the permit was granted. Dorothy iJudy Garland', a small! Rirl. lives with her Mint Em (Clara i Blandick) and Uncle Henry <Charley' Grapewinei on a farm in Kansas. Her! constant companion is her dog.

She started out. j In the woods she comes across Pro- I lessor Marvel (Frank Morgan i. itinerant fortune teller and wagon show man. i.he asks if .she can go with military situation on its leaders. AI storekeeper, after peering up and down ' the street to sec if any police were 1 nearby, whispered in my car. "All] thjs is the fault of the leaders. They talk too much ant! do too little." Until Monday—11 days after the start of war — Lwow lacked anti-aircraf < guns. The same is true of other Polish cities with the exception of Warsaw. All guns were at the front, i Even now smaller towns lack anti- | aircraft potection and German fliers swoop within 200 feet of the ground. I could almost count the rivets in the fuselage of one plane. "Unless heavy rains come." says the man in the street, with a resigned air, "it will be over in another 10 days." He believes heavy rains quickly would beg down Germany's | mechanized forces in the mud. Neutral military observers express doubt, however, that even rain could make much diference because Poland's supply system is breaking down even faster. Transport of any kind is virtually impossible during the day because Germany's warplanes .seem toj to be watching every road, every i railway, hunting Polish supply trains j and columns with unerring instinct. I : lnm. The wise old man gathers her story, pretends to tell her fortune in ;\ crystal, and induces her to return home, telling her how much her aunt and uncle are grievcing for her. As she arrives at the farmhouse a cyclone hits the place. He aunt, uncle and the farmhands had taken refuge in the cyclone cellar after vainly hunt- in -4 her. She and Toto cower in her bedroom in the farmhouse. The roaring wind hurls a window. It strikes Dorothy on the head and she tails onto her bed. Dorothy feels the house rise from its foundation and spin through the air. She sees ccws. horses and people flying by. Miss Gulch flies by. pedaling her bicycle, and suddenly changes into a witch riding a broomstick. Then the house begins falling and finally lands with a thump. Dorothy looks out. The house is in the midst of a blaze of color, with green trees, colred funtains. huge poppies. A great bubble floats in. bursts t and out of it comes a beautiful vision, Glincla (Billie Burke), the beautiful Witch of the North. She tells Dorothy she is in the land of the Munchkins, kindly dwarfs who are overjoyed because her house fell on and killed the wicked Witch of the Last. All that remain of this Witch i= her ruby slipers. protruding from under the house. The midgets approach, welcome her and celebrate in song. Then they cower in terror as the Wicked Witch of the West 'who is Miss Gulch) appear. The dead Witch is her sister. The magic i uby slippers mysteriously attach themselves to Dorothy's feet. The Wick ed Witch demands them and leaves, vowing vengeance'.'^ Dorothy wants to get back to Kansas. She is told only the Wizard of Oz in the Emeral City can help her. She and Toto start out. She comes across a Scarecrow, strikingly like the farmhand. Hunk. He fays he neds a brain, and resolves to accompany her to ask the Wizard for one. Next they find the Tin Woodman, and he proves to be Hickory, the other farmhand, in tin. He says he needs a heart, and joins the party. They go on. A lion, much like Keke. accosts them and threatens Toto. Dorothy slaps him and the Cowardly Lion begins to wimpcr. He joins the party to ask the Wizard to make him brave. The Wicked Witch follows them, threatens the others for helping Dorothy, and puts a field of poison poppies in their path, from which they narrowly escape by the air of Glinda. But they reach the Emerald City and get inside. The Wicked Witch serves notice on the city, "Surrender Dorothy or Die." The magic ruby shoes enable them to obtain audience with the Wizard, a huge mysterious face above a throne, who promises to grant all their sequests if they will kill the Wicked Witch and bring oack her broomstick They set out. To reach the Witch's castle they must go through the Haunted Forest. The Wicked Witch sends her winged monkeys to swoop clown upon them and carry off Dorothy and Tot. M her castle, the Witch tries to take the ruby slippers from Dorothy but finds she cannot until Dorothy is dead. So she sets an hour glass running. When the sand has ceased running Dorothy must die. Suddenly Toto gets away and eludes the mon keys and the terrible Winkies, guard of the Witch. The dog finds the others just as the Tin Woodman is weeping over poor Dorothy. With Toto leading the way, tho three climb a steep mountain until they can see the castle. The Scarecrow has figured out a method of attack and says the Cowardly Lion must lead them. Shaking with fear, the lion says he will do it. They are attacked by three Winkies but overpower these strange men and manage to get into the castle weir- ing the Winkies' costumes. Toto leads them to the room where Dorothy is held captive and the Tin Wodman smashes in the door with his axe. However, they are discovered and are forced to flee through the castle. They are cornered in a room high in the castle. The Witch enters'.««vd tells them each has to die a different death. The Scarecrow is first and the Witch sets fire to him. Dorothy seizes a pail of water and throws it on tlie Scarecrow. Water drenches the Witch and she melts nway. Tile Winkies arc happy to be delivered from her wickedness and give Dorothy the broomstick and they return to the Wizard. Again they confront that strange head. But the Wizard stalls on his promises. They are bitter and angry when Toto reveals a meek man, wh is strangely like Professor Marvel behind n curtain doing all this magic. It is the Wizard of Oz himself. Tht;> demand their rewards and he is forced to make good. He tells them they have had what they want all the time. The Scarecrow really has brains because he thought the quartet through many difficulties but ^n- liko scholars i he has no diploma as proof of his brains, line Wizard give.s him one. The Tin Wodman has a real heart because he cried over the fate of his friend, Dorothy. But. unlike philanthropists, he has no testimonial. Tlie Wizard gives him one in the shape of a heart. The Cowardly Lion, really brave because he carried on even when frightened, received a huge medal to prove his valor. All are happy, except Dorothy. How can she get back to Kansas? The Wizard confesses he was once a balloonist who floated to Oz and remained as the Wizard. He starts to take her home in the balloon. But it gets loose 'without Dorothy and he is carried away alone, leaving Oz to -be ruled by Ihe Scarecrow. Tin Woodman and Cowardly Lion. Dorothy is now heartbroken. But Glinda arrives in her bubble and tells her can "o home any time she wishes. Glinda wanted Dorothy to first learn .'. great truth before she was. told. Dorothy says she believes .she knows what is meant: she'll never again have to look for happiness beyond her own back yard. Glinda says'that is right. Now all Dorothy has to do is click her heels together and repeat "There's no place like home" three times. Dorothy says goodbye to her friends anil des so. And, miraculously, there she. is in her bed saying "There's no place like home." Around her, with worried faces are Aunt Em Uncle Henry, the three farmhands and', looking in the window, Prof. Marvel It has ail been a delirium. Dorothy can't, understand why Zeke. Hunk, Hickory, and Prof. Marvel don't remember being with her in Oz. but she is,sure Toto remembers. 20 Pet. Rise Likely in Farm Products But Exports Won't Reach the Average of 1920-29 Period WASHINGTON - </!•) - Secretary Wallace indicated Wednesday that the administration would not look with disfavor on a 20 per cent advance in he general level of fnrin prices provided it was based on "sound consumer demand" and ivot on "specula- live activity." lie cnipliasi/.cd Hint increases in prices of most funn products .since Die outbreak ot the Kuiopean war had not brought quotations up tn the levc .-••light hy (lie .•idmmi.sir.-tdon under its crop control and other farm programs. Because of the possibility of increased demand fo American meats and other livestock products in Europe, the secretary decided agaiivst ordering a tanner referendum on corn marketing quotas.

While saying that ho expected an increase in exports. Wallace cautioned farmers against being too optimistic about such trade. He predicted export demands for pork and lard would not be as large, ius in the l!)20-2!) period.
