ASBURY PARK EVENING PRESS (THE EVENING NEWS), THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 1941 Action Expected On Patronage TRENTON. (Pk Patronage still was a major problem today as New Jersey's legislators returned to the Capitol for a midweek session preceded by caucuses of the Republi-, can majority. Some lawmakers predicted the G. O. P. members would settle their differences sufficiently to permit a joint session of the senate and assembly tonight to elect a state treasurer, controller and alcoholic beverage control commissioner. The regular session was set for 8 p. m. On the caucus agendas, in addition to the long-standing wrangle over jobs, were milk control, water supplies, proposed revision of the system of distributing highway fund subsidies to counties and municipalities, and a new proposition for compromise of the approximately $50,-000,000 owed to the state in delinquent railroad taxes including interest and penalties. Supporters of John F. Evans, Republication city counsel of Pater-son, claimed they had sufficient votes to land him the A. B. C. post at $16,500 a year. They said Assemblyman Walter J. Freund R-Bergen) would get the job of chief counsel in the A. B. C. department at $10,000 a year. Nauthright May Be Controller The same sources said the $6,000-a-year state controller's job, now tfrld by Republican Frank J. Murray of Orange, would go to W. Stanley Naughright, Essex county G. O. P. chairman. State Treasurer William H. Albright of Woodbury, a South Jersey Republican leader, appeared tn have a clear road for reelection. In addition to Evans, those mentioned prominently for the A. B. C. post included Acting Commissioner. Earle W. uarrett ana state nenei Director Charles R. Erdman, jr. Democratic Gov. Charles Edison's nominations of Maj. Charles H. Schoeffel as state police superintendent and of five members of the state's first labor mediation board along with several others were expected to be sent to the senate tonight. Schoefel now is deputy superintendent. Legislative conferences on milk control were nearing a head because the law under which the present state milk control board operates will expire June 30. Various proposals for boards and administrators have been made. Conflicting plans for developing the state's water supplies also have been put before the legislature. : u .N-jW. O -H J 10 Italian Seamen Convicted In Disabling of Freighter NEWARK. (P Ten Italian seamen, who threw the courtroom into an uproar by giving Fascist salutes after a federal jury convicted them of sabotage charges in the disabling of the 5.441-ton freighter Aussa. today faced maximum penalties of 20 years each in a penitentiary. Seven crew members of the freighter Orsa, which, like the Aussa and three other vessels, was disabled while tied up in Port Newark, were scheduled for trial here today in the same court on similar charges. The jury convicted the Aussa's crewmen last night after deliberating five hours and 40 minutes. Trial lasted two days. Judge William F. Smith did not set a date for sentence. When Judge Smith left the bench after the verdict came in, the defendants clicked their heels and exchanged the Fascist salute with Italo Verando, general counsel of the Italian owners of the Aussa. Chief Deputy Marshal William Brady immediately reprimanded Verando for "such conduct in an American courtroom," whereupon Homer L. I-oomis, defense counsel. leaped to his feet and shouted at Brady: "I'm an American citizen and this court is not in session. I can salute as I darn please." Loomis raised his arm, and said to the marshal: "I'll do this as often as I desire. I know my rights " During the trial. Loomis conceded that the vessel had been damaged, but insisted that it had been disabled to keep it from being used by the British. None of the seamen took the stand to testify. Loomis denied that the disabling was sabotage, since the United States was not at war with Italy. He sought a directed verdict of acquit tal. At the request of Assistant U. S. Attorney Thorn Lord. Judge Smith dismissed an indictment against Rinaldo Negri, Italian line marine superintendent, who was named a co-defendant, before the case went to the jury. Lord read the jury a sworn statement by Capt. Armino Scalegerri or the Aussa, one of the defendants, that Admiral Alberto Lais, form: r Italian naval attache at Washington. had ordered destruction of the ship's machinery and two boilers in a code message.

(CP) Army, Navy Well Advanced With Radiolocator Devices WASHINGTON, () The United States, already credited with possessing aircraft detection apparatus superior to any in use abroad, was invited today to contribute volunteers to help man Britain's similar "radiolocator" device. The American apparatus, according to Brig. Gen. George V. Strong, former chief of war plans, apparently is "far in advance of any similar equipment available to any of the belligerents abroad." The aircraft spotting devices adopted by the army, members of congress have been told, are effective at well over 100 miles, piercing fog and darkness to give defending fighters at least IS JLet$ serve m The same delicious, rich-flavored Sheffield Milk you buy at home can be delivered to your door here.

With such devices already in large-scale production, the war department has started construction of a string of fixed and mobile warning stations in both the United States and defense outposts. First deliveries were scheduled to the navy this summer of a new super-sensitive apparatus to enable ships of the fleet to detect the approach of both warplanes and enemy surface ships even when they are far out of sight over the horizon. British Device Explained Full details of the British device. which has played a prominent role in discouraging Nazi raids on England, have been turned over to the United States long since. American technical and military experts have made reciprocal contributions. Announcing the start of the British drive to enlist "at least" 13,000 skilled Americans civilians for a technical corps, air commodore George C. Pirie yesterday disclosed some of the details of the weapon against night fighters. Congress included $6,929,000 in defense funds for detectors to be installed in warning stations on the Atlantic, gulf and Pacific coasts, and in Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and the Canal zone. Plans also provided for five mobile signal corps companies in addition. The detectors cost $54,700 each. The first of the mobile stations already is in operation, and received an initial servicetax last January in anti-aircraft war games in the New York area. On the plea of Rear Admr. Samuel M. Robinson, chief of the bureau of ships, congress added $20,650,000 to previous $11,000,000 appropriations to equip the navy with secret warning apparatus of two types. will not, he emphasized repeatedly be subject to combatant duty. High Towers Used PALO ALTO, Cal., The in side story of Britain's radio locator system, which warns of approaching Nazi air raiders, was revealed in part today by men who for years have shared the secret of its development. Originator of the idea, said these sources, is Cyril F. Elwell, former Stanford university engineer who pioneered spectacular radio transmission projects around the world. The informants, who for obvious reasons insisted on anonymity, said the system was a combination of radio and other electrical devices, representing inventions of many men, rather than a single new instrument in wireless technology. Its most visible feature was said to be towers about 237 feet high, spaced about 10 miles apart along the English coast. From these towers, a curtain of radio waves is transmitted continuously into space. The waves from this curtain projected over the English channel. Whenever a plane approaches from the continent, it necessarily passes thru these waves at some point. When a plane enters a wave sector, radio Energy in the waves strike it and "bounce," back toward their point of origin, which may be one or more of the radio towers. Delicate electronic instruments detect any wave thus reflected. Hence, every time a plane passes thru a curtain, a detector registers its presence, and the beam intercepted locales the invader. Stanford university records show Elwell went to England in 1936 and 1937 in connection with building 11 such towers as a part of the British rearmament program. Elwell convinced English authorities of the merit of the scheme, sources here said, after demonstrating the idea to American government experts. Since then Elwell had helped build similar towers at Singapore. Performance of the radiolocator system in England indicated hun dreds of units were being employed, Mechanics Sought In announcing the drive to recruit" which would mean towers or similar American volunteers to make and broaacasting points naa been multl man the English devices, Commodore Pirie said the personnel most desired at present included radio mechanics, skilled engine fitters and metal workers, electrical technicians, instrument makers and repairers, machine tool setters and operators, motor mechanics and engine room repair men. "Such volunteers will be paid," he said, "in addition to free board and lodging, at the rate of 500 pounds a year ($38.65 per week) for chief foremen and at the rate of six pounds ($24.12) per week for basic workers. During a short period of training required for certain trades, workers will receive, in addition to free board and lodging, a probationary rate of 550 pounds ($21.11) per week." He announced that executive offices of the Civilian Technical corps, as the volunteers will be called as a group, were at 15 Broad street. New York, and that further information and application blanks could be obtained there. The men will be housed and fed with British technical workers, he continued, and will be supplied with a distinctive blue uniform, and wear insignia designating the corps. They plied many times over the original 11, which reached from Dover to Fe-lixstone. LIVES WHILE LIVING'S GOOD TULSA, Okla. P) In Oklahoma's prison it's traditional that a prisoner sentenced to die may have anything he wants to eat. But Ben Butler, head prison steward, is baffled by a 20-year-old occupant of death row. "The boy lived in the hills and probably never ale anything but turnips and sowbelly before we got him." Butler reports. "Now he orders things like caviar and a special brand of crab meat that we have difficulty getting. I don't know where he heard about such food." Death row guards point to the novels Tuggle reads and surmise he chooses his menu from them. .3 (8MM r ! w-vri ill - -J. I il batata i H7-4I TtisS&r jf?
