More Lives May Be Lost Three Victims Of GIB Breech Block Explosion Dangerously Wovaderf In Ntvil Hotpitil At San Dief o 'fly The Associated Press) SAN DIEGO, Calif.. July 30.—Pear that the worst gun explosion aboard a U. S. fighting ship since 1924 would exact additional lives was felt today as three victims lay dangerously wounded in naval hospital here. Two were killed in the breech block blast Tuesday. The three—Robert William Opie of Philadelphia, Holland Lowell Curnow, Stockton, Calif., and Edson Lee Flower of Colorado Springs. Colo.—were most seriously injured of nine hurt in tha "Kickback" of a .six-inch gun of the light cruiser iMartalehead off San Clemente island in southern California waters during target practice. Authorities expressed concern over their condition. Preparing Reports Naval officers on a court of inquiry and board of inquest were preparing reports to be sent to Washington after viewing the scar- jred and powder-blistered gun turret here yesterday. Faulty parts in the breech gave way, causing the heavy charge of high explosive U> backfire into the steel turret. The gun butt was shattered, and the gun crew was showered with steel and wrapped in a sheet of flame. The missile, however, landed near its mark, miles away, observers said. The injured were either burned by powder, or suffered lacerations, shattered and broken legs and arms. Aside from Edwin Benedict, jr.. Forest Knolls, Calif, who lost his right arm, the remaining six injured were reported in "fair" or "good" condition. STATION IS BURNED VERNON. July 30.

Menus Of Texas Prison Published HUNTSVILLE, July 30. «P> — Horace Coon, supervising steward of the Texas Prison System, has assembled in a. book entitled "Bills of fare of the Texas Prison System," 3,650 menus used the past! three and a half years for morning, noon and night meals. "The meals are prepared from data furnished by a standard food chart," Coon said, "based on our prison-produced food and what we can reasonably purchase. They are made with the view of furnishing variety." Ho said hn doubted j whotor any menu in the collection ; duoii'-ated another. "The menus are based on scien- > tlfically balanced rations, for we feed around 4.000 calories daily to the men doing hard work," Coon j explained. He said he "prepared, the book so stewards over the sys- ! tern may be able to find things they might not think of." Coon, who became steward at the Hunstvllle unit in 1928 and was] promoted to supervising steward in j 1935, advised stewards to put bulk j with their menus as well as con- j centrated foods so men would not become abnormally hungry. He sug- ; gested also that crisp foods be paired with smooth or soft foods, and contrasts should'be carried to color through use of fruits and vegetables. ' If • there was no other way of obtaining a color contrast, he suggested using parsley garnish, a dash of paprika, or brown-topped deserts. Convenient Eating j Double-Deck Table 1 Is Good Idea R OBERT LEE, July 30. Citizens of Valley View community near here "set a good table," and, equally important, th<;y make eating convenient. J J Casey has adopted « double-deck table, the upper level revolving and the lower stationary. Guests' places are on the iatwr and the food on the upper de'-k. "Pzff. the biscuits, please.' no longer interrupts conversation. The sue?; pulls or pushes the food-stacked !eve! and in a moment the desired dish is in iront of him. When hts gl-iss or cup if empty he places it on the turn-table and sends it around to the hostess who fills and returns it by the same route. Folks say the devise relieves the strain upon politeness and a number of families are installing the arrangement.
