They arc equipped with the latest electronic devices. The ships also are studying the erratic ciu-renls and Ikies. The only available clinrls of the 120 nijlcs of "unknown waters." which arc on the shortest sea lane irom Seattle to Yokohama, were made hastily during the war.

A special assignment will be to chart the "Aleutian trench" on the southern side of the Island chain. The underwater mountains drop suddenly to depths of perhaps 2,500 feet. A cave-In on the sides of the "trench" is believed to have caused the earthquakes and tidal waves which killed 20 persons in the Hawaiian Islands a year ago.

If you're lucky, the car stays upright and unsniashed. Yon have nothing worse than a tad scare and a few bruises. At worst, you may lie for hours under a heavy beam while rescue workers try frantically to cut It away and Iree you. In between, you could bo dead. This isn't a common occurrence. In fad, it happens infrequently. The average person could ride H million miles in n train before it came his turn to get hurt—more Ihun half n billion miles before it was his turn to be killed. Last year American railroads delivered the equivalent of 5000 passengers from coast to coast for every one they injured. They gave the equivalent of 100,000 oast-to-coast round trips for cv- ry passenger they killed. But Hint record Is the worst leacellme year's showing since 920. It you have thought there vcre aii unusual lot of tragic vrecks in the past few months, •on 'APi'c right. An average of about 40 train accidents a day was reported to lie Interstate Commission during .940 — a total or 15,500 for the :ear. Most of them were very minor. They included every accident Involving a train, or a locomotive, or cars, that did as much as $150 nmagc to railroad properly, including the cost ol cleaning up. But some were serious, and caused the deaths of l[M passengers and 320 crew members, besides injuring 4017 Passengers and IG.OOO railroad workers. The pace has stepped up Ihls year. During the first two months 2957 accidents were reported, compared with 21SB during the same months of 1940. 29 PASSKNKGHS Kll.l.Kl) Twenty-nine passengers were killed iii January and February of this year, compared with 1C last year; and 770 were Injured this year compared with GC4 last year.
