Two spec tacular fires, one of which endangered the lives of 48 men aboard a blazing barge marooned in flaming oil coating the Cuyahoga river, and another which destroyed the Luna Park stadium as 30,000 watched, gave the Cleveland fire department a severe workout yesterday and early today.

SEEK TO CANCEL Attorney Seeks To Wipe Insurance Subscriptions Off Accounts Receivable RAVENNA MAN IS SUED Members of Summit County Klan No. 27, who visioned a vast auditorium on Fir st. five years ago, and backed up their faith in the Klan by taking slock In the Summit County Auditorium Co.. may have a portion of their debt burden lifted if an application filed in bankruptcy court is approved by Harry L. Snyder, local federal bankruptcy referee. The application to cancel a portion of the debt has been filed by Harold Slabaugh, trustee of the Auditorium Co., covering the stock subscriptions involving insurance policies. The Auditorium Co. promoters had several types of subscriptions to the project, one of which was coupled with an insurance policy. The subscriber was to receive insurance double the amount of his stock subscription. Disposes of Question The Insurance plan fell apart with the rest of the financial structure of the Auditorium Co. and the sub scribers never got the insurance which went with the stock. Wiping the insurance subscriptions otf the accounts receivable disposes of the question of the validity of the agreement, which was raised. Snyder has set no date for passing on the application. On the other accounts of the Auditorium Co., however, the collection system slarted following the bank ruptcy heavlngs before Snyder last fall, is being continued. Payment Is being soiiRht on the basis of 60 per cent of the amount of the notes for outright stock subscriptions. The collection process is a slow one, as there were thousands of these subscriptions. Nearly 400 suits have been filed In municipal court, all for small amounts, the majority of the subscriptions running from $50 to $200. The stock sold for $25 a share. List Is Covered The list of subscribers Is being slowly covered, and where collection is not made by letter, a suit is prepared and filed. The first suit in Portage county, against William Taylor, 120 E. Spruce St., Ravenna, was filed Friday. It seeks collection of $120, the unpaid portion of a subscription for eight shares of slock. Most of the stock subscriptions came from Summit county men and women. TWO AKRON EAGLES ATTEND CONVENTION Dr. G. H. Wolfe, Henry J.
