Last night, the possibility seemed strong that the Y. W. C. A. executive, said by her parents to have lived a life of seclusion from men friends, had been killed by another woman. Today Professor--^ J. Laudermilk, research expert at Pomona, said it — frwas impossible to tell if bloody hairs found in Miss Muir's hand were those of a woman. The report the hairs had been identified as from a blonde or gray-haired woman was given last night by Ed Dteck- mann, San Diego detective working with Laudermilk In testa of the That Number Necessary for Merchant Marine to Hold Its Rank (Allocated Pros* Leased l\'irc) WASHINGTON, Sept. 8.—Contending that 800 new ships aro needed to put the American merchant,, ; ma£Uie. 4l on, oyqn r-tepreis... with foreign-'Vqssels,' shipping board bureau officials reported today they ar,e laying" tentative groundwork for a largo construction program. Preparing preliminary data for -the now .maritime commission, officials said they have found that new merchant ships of all classes-are needed. Commission to Function .-• Tho new five-member commission, created under the ship subsidy law enacted by the last congress after a bitter controversy, has not yet been appointed by President Roosevelt. When It does begirt functioning, officials said, foundation work for the new construction program w\ll have been accomplished. They said the co-operation of private operators will bo necessary io carry out. the expansion. If they should approve of the program and take full advantage of the preferred subsidies, It was said, ns much as $500,000,000 might be spent for'new construction. To launch tho program, the maritime commission will have about »100,000.000 In cash plus another $87,000,000 of notes receivable now held by tho shipping board bureau. Will Pay Subsidies Under tho new law, the United States will pay direct subsidies to operators to build and run ships. This plan replaces a system of Indirect subsidies given In the form of payments for carrying tho mall on the seas. Tho present law was passed only after, a long and hot-tempered struggle. Some legislators were critical of any kind of subsidy as wrong In principle; other groups favoring sub-" sidles differed us to specific provisions. Tho law that finally emerged provides for subsidies up to 50 per cent of construction costs, with 20-year, 3V4 per cent government loans for as much aa 26 per cent more. It also provides subsidies for operating ships. GALE SWEEPS IMPERIAL BRAWLEY, Sept. 3. (A.
