Police Officers Francis Solmonson, left, and George Four Missing In Collision Of Two Ships Wilmington, Del., May 16 (i^)— Two ships collided halfway through the Chesapeake and Delaware canal today, unleashing a series of explosions on the oil tanker F. L. Hayes. Four crew members are missing. Five of the tanker's 10-man crew leaped into the 200-feet wide waterway and paddled ashore. Another was rescued from the water. Flames visible for five miles engulfed the west-bound Hayes soon after the collision with the steamship Barbara Uykes shortly after midnight. « * * ARBIY ENGINKEBS at Chesapeake City, Md., said a third ship, the Angelina, was damaged slightly by the explosions although It was not Involved in the collision. Two of the Angelina's crew wore reported hurt slightly. The ship was able to proceed to Philadelphia whoro .It docked|;«everaJ hours later, ttijf At daybreak a column of black smoke rolled lazily over the Delaware countryside from the etlll burning tanker. Thai^O-foot Hayes was carrying 700,000 gallons of high octano gasoline. No one tried to put the fire out. Firemen were unable to get clos<; enough to battle the flames. Mud banks and woods border the canal. « >» *• TUE CRASH occurred near Summit Bridge, Del., about 20 mile.i south of Wilmington and halfway across the 19-milo canal which con- ne(;ts the Delaware river with tht? Upper Chesapeake bay. The missing men were identified as R. E. Cakes, first assistant engineer; Weyland Ellis, 2nd assistant engineer; OUle Landoe, deckhand, and Oeorg-e Carter, seaman. Home addresses were not available, Roger Soars of Jackson Heights, L. I., captain of the 270-foot tanker and one of those saved, said hi3 vessel was struck on the side by the Barbara Lykos. The Lykes was towed from the scene by a tug and was anchored in the Delaware river ' near the mouth of the canal. « * * SEARS. TAKEiV to Delaware hospital in Wilmlneton, told this story; "We were bound west with a cargo of gasoline for Baltimore from Philadelphia when wc met the steamship Barbara Lykea. We stopped, waiting for the ship to come through the Summit bridgi. "As the Lykes got almost up to us she took a sheer and crashed into our port side. She opened up our No. seven tank and the sparks caused the ship to catch fire. Fum 68 from the tank blow back into the galley. The stove set the fumes afire. As the fumes went up the tank exploded. * * * "I STEERED the ship toward the south shore of the canal until she touched shore. Then five of us Jumped. The. pther five men were below dec^B el\ber in their rooms or In the engine, room into which their Quartera opi^nod." The busy Chesapeake and Delaware canal acoommodates ships of ocean-going stM' For shlpa traveling between Baltimore and Philadelphia or New Yorit, the canal saves a long journey around the Delmarva penlnvula and Cape Charles.

McCarthy Hearing Takes Quick Turn Washington, May. 15 A Senate heai-ing took an unexpected turn today after a friend of Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) put out a letter declaring attempts were being made at the hearing "to assassinate a .senator's character and political career by Innuendo and foul play." The writer of the letter, Clark Wldeman, Columbus.Ohio, real estate broker, was Immediately called before the senate elections sul>- commlttee and acknowledged under sharp questioning that the letter had been typed in McCarthy's office. * * • .WIDEMAN TESTIFIED he had written the letter In longhand in his hotel room but got a girl in McCarthy's office to type it. He said ho went to McCarthy's office becau.se it was the place he was "most familiar with" on capital hill. Tho subcommittee is holding hearings on a resolution by Son. Benton (D-Conn) aimed at unseating McCarthy. Thomas V. O'Sullivan, a public relations counselor, was testifying when Wldeman sent his letter to chairman Gillette (D-Iowa) and distributed copies among newsmen. * * « WIDEMAN SAID in the letter he had been subpoenaed to testify Monday in the inquiry but "after three days of waiting I still have not been called to testify, nor have I been able to learn when, if ever, I shall be called." He wrote that during these days "I have been listening to your counsel questioning witnesses re- petltiously and carrying them far afield from the subject of inquiry." * t m "I HAVE OBSERVED in- the offices of your staff an anti-McCarthy bias 80 strong that I doubt if any fair and judicious results can be obtained from this hearing." On Tuesday afternoon, he said, ho saw In the committee staff offices a witness "being scolded severely by a staff member for volunteering testimony which might be regarded as helpful to Sen. McCarthy." Wldeman added: "I am sickened by the attempts being made at this hearing to assassinate a sen ator's character and political ca' reer by innuendo and foul play." Student Nurse Accident Heroine Lancaster, Pa., May 15 (A^—A 21-yoar-old student nuise was the heroine of a near tragedy on the Lincoln highway near hero yesterday when she grabbed tho wheel of a careening bus after tho driver had collaiJSc3fr ,"§lie guided the big vehicle through a field of trees to a safe stop.

Oil Strike May End Soon Washington, May 15 (/D—Gov- ernmcnt officials today prft- dlctcd an early end to the 15-day nationwide oil strike which already is affecting the country's tourist trade and air service both here and abroad. The wage stalilllsuition lioard (WSB) decision yesterday to allow up to 15 cents an hour in wage Increases to 90,000 striking oil workers brought prompt and favorable response from the unions Involved. Tho proposed celling boost earK lor had been agreed to by part of the strike-bound industry. 41 * SI ^ B. .1. SCHAFER, vice president of the CIO oil workers International, issued a statement In Denver last night saying tho CIO policy committee, and the coordinating committee for tho CIO-Independ« ont-AFL unions coalition, had reluctantly approved a proposed sef- tlomont on tho ba-sls of tho IS-cont- an-hour Increase, plus shift differentials of six and 12 cents and retroactive pay equal to the full amount allowalile under WSB regulations. Tho WSB refused blanket approval for the shift differentials, but said they would bo considered on their merits. • • * THE UNION approval, among other things, averted a threatened shutdown Wednesday midnight of tho Gulf refinery near Cincinnati. Tho unions originally asked a 25-cent pay boost; the industry offered 10. Two weeks ago the unions lowered their demand to IS cents, and companies employing hotwoon 18,000 and 26,000 oil workers raised their offer to IB cents. Tho WSB did not recommend that the striking unions, which do their negotiating on a loral basis, be given 15 cents across tho board; it simply said it would not approve more than 15 cents in any negotiated agreements submitted to it for an okay under wage stabilization policies. Except In extraordinary circumstances, the 16-cent figure Is tho celling. Moat oil workers now average betsveen $2 and J2.10 an hour. Identified by- Physical Defects St. Peter, Minn., May 15 {/Pt—A. protruding loft ear, a birthmark on her forolioad and a crippled right hip helped identify a Milwaukee charwoman yesterday as Mary C. Ritz, part heir to a $200,000 estate. Miss Ritz, 62, was allowed an estimated $30,000 from the estate of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph mu. Nicollet, Minn. MlHs Ritz left home 41 years ago and returned only after she learned of her parents' death. Hor five brothers were skeptical of her identity until hor attorney pointed out her throe physical defects and offered hor birth .certificate and social security card in evidence before probate Judge *am Abrahamson.
