In support of their contentions Oat the raili in the Northbrae tun nel in Berkeley need not be re moved to supply the new Key System line to Richmond, the Call fornia Railroad Commission today forwarded to 'Washington an engi beer's report of available supplies. Justus F. Craemer. president of the Commission, wired Thomas M. Woodward, United States Maritime Commission official an earnest re quest that "nothing be done at this time to remove the Northbrae tun nel rails." 1 The amount of rail which the Maritime Commission proposes to remove is equivalent to -85 mile of ingle track, Craemer said. He added that the Railroad Commission survey of available rail here shows that titer Is the equivalent of 10 miles of unused single track on pt upeity abandoned by the Inter- urban .Electric Railway. OTHZB UNUSED TRACK In addition, Craemer wired Wood ward,' there is the equivalent of 8.7 miles of unused single track on the Key System. All this track could be made available in a very short time, he said. "Under these circumstances, Craemer informed Woodward, "this commission cannot understand why it is necessary for the Maritime Commission to requisition an in significant amouat of rail extending through the Northbrae tunnel, in view of the fact that it might be used to conserve vitsJtf nieded rubber withotrftnterf erlng with the Richmond shipyard extension." The Railroad Commission was in formed yesterday by Woodward that it was too late in protesting the removal of the rails because the MaritisM. Commission already had instituted proceedings. backing Commission Berkeley's City Council is backing the position of the Railroad Commi sion. This support was passed yes terday by a 7 to 1 vote. Pending before the Railroad Com mission is a request of the Thousand Oaks improvement Association ana the City, of Berkeley that an early hearing be held on re -establishment of Key System train service through the tunnel, to eliminate the use of lvDuses io ptcx up passengers in we fThousand Oaks district Jk.' The Key System continued to re main in ine Dacxgrouna, going aneaa with the extension to Richmond and awaiting a ruling from the Railroad Commission on the use of trains through the tunnel. When the Key System started the Richmond line, it said it had plenty of rails on hand for the Job and would not have to tap other sources, Missing Woman Is Found Here Object of two-State search for the past two weeks, Mrs. Dorothy Brown, 27, was located last night at an Oakland dance hall, where she is employed, local police reported T . . . j 1.1 J MM i in ieieiy menage to aneriu ra 'William J.

Aug. 12 A father and mother who expected to attend graduation exercises of their son, Donald F. Angus, 24, from an Army flying; school learned of the youth's death today in a crash of his train ing plane. The telegram to Mr. and Mrs. Hal P. Angus Of 3034 Queen Street said only that Angus was killed Instantly and that his body would be returned to Hayward for burial. An Associated Press dispatch dis closed that the plane crashed near the Roswell Army Flying School in New Mexico after Angus had once overshot the field in an attempted landing. The cause wss not immediately determined. Mr. and Mrs. Angus had begun preparations for their trip to Roswell a week ago and had already purchased train tickets.

Closer supervision and stricter discipline in the handling of pilots and ground crews, a constant watch against sabotage and a thorough pilot education system based on standardized procedure, was -called for by Brig. Gen. Barney M. Giles, Fourth Air Force commander. At a meeting of group command ers in San Francisco yesterday, he said that "every plane cracked up, every pilot put out of action here means one less for the combat zone and so indirectly constitutes a victory for the Axis as surely as though he had been shot down. "Records show that 56 per cent of all airplane accidents occur in landing, take-off and taxiing," Gen eral uues said, or these, 10 per cent are in taxiing, or in other words, while the plane is a land carrier, and not a flying instrument' The American Army plane is no place for the old-time hell-for-leather pilot, according to Brig. Gen. William E. Kepner, commander of the Fourth Fighter Command. "The American pilot is the finest in the world because he has daring and initiative and we foster these qualities," General Kepner said, "But we are going to cut acci dent rates by eliminating careless ness.
