Sailors Drown LE HAVRE, France, April 1 VP Six French sailors were drowned today when the Norwegian tanker Mosli collided with a tug that was attempting to make fast to the vessel in the harbor. STEADIER THIS fore and have them baffled.

By the spectra astronomers usually can tell of what gases a star is composed. Some astronomers suggest the sun may one day explode like these novae and burn the earth to a crisp. They are interested in finding what causes stars to explode and what happens to them afterward. Dr. Zwicky has a theory that super novae may be the source of the mysterious cosmic rays.

This suggests some of the work to be done at the new observatory, a California 'Institute of Technology project, financed by the Rockerfeller Foundation. It probably will be completed in 1939.

The engineer said the dogs started across a railroad bridge, unaware of the approaching train. He brought the train to a stop iust ten feet short of the terrified group. Then, with the engineer urging them on with blasts from the whis tie, the dogs picked their way to the other side of the bridge, wagging their tails in thanks. PROGRAMlfJ AID REFRESHEN SUPPORT UN AL HELD LAS VEGAS, Nev, April 1 (JP) Two prisoners who escaped from the county jail yesterday were still at large today. They are John B.

Matney, who was awaiting removal to the state prison at Carson City to serve a term on a bad check charge, and Ivan Pruitt, CCC boy awaiting federal action on charges of misusing government property. After escaping through a hole which they opened in their cell wall by tearing out plumbing, they sawed bars in the corridor door and thus gained access to an outer wooden door, where they went over the transom. Matney left a note to Sheriff M. E. Ward saying: "I will send you the money for the check as soon as I make it.

I can get a job on the Quality Fruit Vegetable Market PASADENA, April 1 Orders are being placed for a forty-eight inch Schmidt telescope to be used as a "scout" for the 200-inch mirror at Palomar observatory, Capt. Clyde S. McDowell, supervising engineer, said today.

"It will be a part of the Palomar observatory along with the eighteen-inch Schmidt telescope already in use," said Captain McDowell. Dr. Fritz Zwicky, astrophysicist, who discovered two super novae or exploding stars with the eighteen inch telescope, explained that the new one, although smaller than the 200-inch reflector, is so constructed that it will photograph a much larger field of sky. "From the photographs we will determine what we want to study with the powerful 200-inch mirror," said Dr. Zwicky.

"The forty-eight inch also will be used in other investigations, of course, but this will be one of its chief services. "Stars or nebulae of a magnitude of 17.5 can be photographed with the eighteen-inch telescope. The forty-eight inch can be used on stars of magnitudes as dim as 20.5." The human eye, unaided, cannot see stars dimmer than the sixth magnitude." Still observing the exploding stars, one of which became 300,000,000,000 times' as bright as the sun, said they both decreased rapidly in brilliance until the past few months, when they have "levelled out." The brighter super nova has dropped from the eighth to the fifteenth magnitude and the other from 12.5 to 17.5. Both novae are in other nebulae, or stars systems, far out in space. The spectra, or light color bands, from these super novae are like nothing astronomers have found be GROCERS PHONE 22311 (with Reno Meat Company) week's conditions, published today, said the trend in leading lines of' trade was still generally uncertain.

"No changes of constructive significance occurred in the leading industrial divisions this week. While manufacturers exerted more than their usual efforts to obtain new orders, it was found that distribu-l tors were not anticipating require-; ments for any extended period," the review said. "Quickening of demand was more apparent in many of the principal wholesale markets. While numerous, orders were for small quantities, despite the fact that the majority of stores were working on low inventories and had yet to accumulate peak Easter stocks. Purchases were limited to immediate needs: few commitments were placed for late spring and early summer; almost none for fall requirement," it' continued.

The estimated wholesale volume dropped fifteen to twenty per cent below, the corresponding 1937 week. On rail trade, the review reported that only a few sections of the country had an unbroken stretch of clear warm weather to accelerate spring merchandise movement, adding: "As these gains were too small to erase the losses in other parts, average retail sales in the leading centers of distribution were unchanged from those for the preceding week. "As comparison was made with the post-Easter period a year ago, drops were shortened for all districts, the estimated volume of retail distribution going but six to seventeen per cent under that for the corresponding 1937 week, taking the country as a whole."

Hull is expected to announce in a few days the time and place -of the first meeting of the international committee he has suggested. It will be in Switzerland, but not at Geneva, where it might appear to be linked to the League of Nations. Of thirty-three countries addressed, nineteen have replied.

All but onewere favorable. Dispatches from diplomats indicate that nine or teikjadditional favorable replies are en route. The nations that have accepted are Belgium, Brazil, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, France, Haiti, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay, Colombia, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Sweden, Argentina, Guatemala, The Netherlands, Panama and Venezuela. The country refusing is Italy. The United States has no yet heard whether Germany will permit the political refugees to leave Germany and Austria.

Germany is reported to have been none too happy over the fact that Secretary Hull sent out his note without informing Berlin at the same time. Speeches by Hitler and his right-hand men Goering and Goebbels indicate, however, Germany would be glad to have Jews leave. Secretary Hull has received in the last few days a number of representatives of Jewish organizations promising their assistance, financial or otherwise, to carry out his BRUNETTI PATR0NE CherrTX PippinS Rhubarb Artichokes APPLES 6 fr 20c I V25C 4sJ VlOc THE STORE OF QUALITY AND VARIETY PHONE 5731 250 LAKE STREET FREE DELIVERY 5c 11c 8p SUGAR pure cane 10 lbs.
