7 Ships Send Out SOS in East Atlantic Storm London. Dec. 29.--ijn--Howling hurricane winds washed mountainous seas over sinking ships along Kurope's Atlantic coast today and te 1 . oil a series ot frantic distress tails. At least seven threatened vessels, including two A m e r i c a n freighters, radioed SOS signals. One ship was driven aground. Others were taking water rapidly and in serious danger. The 6,711-ton U.S. freighter Flying Enterprise, carrying 40 crewmen and 10 passengers out o( Hamburg said she was listing 40 degrees and "taking water." She was wallowing off the southwest tip of Kngland. The Dirkzwagers shipping agency In Rotterdam received a message from the U. S. troopship General A. \V. Greeley saying "all passengers of the Flying Enterprise have been taken off. x x x Capt. Kurt Clarkson of the Flying Enterprise will remain aboard alone until the arrival of a tugboat, jc x x The captain says he thinks he will hold out until the tug arrives. The General Greeley Is staying with the Enterprise xxx." ^Help also was at hand or on the way to other threatened ships. Winds as high as 89 miles an hour whipped up the worst eastern Atlantic storm in many years. Ports and airports closed in many places. Coastal towns from Spain to Denmark were battered. Hundreds ot small boats were sunk at anchor on the French and English coasts. Tidal floods hit river mouths all along tliu shore. Most transatlantic air travel halted after the Shannon river washed over low-lying Shannon international airport. The Queen Mary finally docked at Southampton 72 hours late. Its capain, Harry Grattidge. said the trip was the worst he had made Blnce 1014. The Holland-Amerika liner Noor dam stood by the Flying Enterprise part of the night. The Southland, a freighter of the South American Steamship line and a British freighter, the 4,98( ton Sherborne, also went to the ait of the Fly Enterprise. The Noor darn's canain decided adequate help was on hand and resumed his trip to Rotterdam. . · The Flying: Enterprise is ownei hy the Isbrandtsen line of New York. None of its rescuers indicate! immediately whether they hai lieen able to take off the crew am passengers. .Earller~~the Flying En terprise had radioed she Hoped t stay afloat until daylight am transfer her passengers then.

The airmen were held 39 days in solitary confinement, they said, but their food was substantial and their quarters fairly comfortable. They told a news conference at their home air base here tonight that both Soviet and Hungarian officers attempted to get military information from them. They were cautioned by an air force officer attending the conference not to elaborate on this phase of their questioning. All four men said at no time were they accused by their captors of being spies. They said questioning centered continually about the extra parachutes in their transport plane, blankets, and a "Gibson girl" radio which is carrietl to send out SOS signals if an aircraft were forced down at sea. The Gibson girl can send nothing except SOS signal They described the Soviet of ficers as "very friendly" but did not reconcile this with the da.il and nlglilly interrogation whicl they were forced to undergo.

Thornton eald tonight he i considering calling a conference of all Interested groups to discuss a severance tax on all Colorado natural resources. "Frankly," he told reporters, "the Idea was suggested this noon by a prominent oil man. It sounds like a good Idea. I may carry It out hut first I want to sound out legislators and representatives of groups proposing a severance tax." Thornton moved into the middle of the heated tax issue 24 hours earlier. He said that he could see no need financially for such a tax now; that when one is enacted It should encompass all natural resources, and that when such a tax is needed, he will back It. Reaction was prompt. Thornton said he received telephone calls at home and office and had callers come to discuss his stand. In all the comments 1 have received, not a single one has mentioned earmarking any severance tax revenues for any specific purpose," Thornton told newsmen. "In fact, I've found agreement with my stand against any earmarking.'/ Thornton did not identify the oil man who called on him except to refer to him as a producer. But the governor said, "he told me the prospects of a severance Weather Local for 21 hours ending at S a.m. Saturday: high, 54; low, 21.

Hightower Washington, Dec. 29--W)--The state department disclosed today that it has set midnight Monday as the deadline for Hungary to close its consulates in Cleveland and New York City--one of two major steps taken in retaliation for Hungarian treatment of four U. S. airmen. The other was a ban on American travel to Hungary. The deadline was made known by release of the text of a note sent last night to Hungarian minister Emil Weil. This accused Hungary of failure to "live up to accepted standards of international practice" and informed him that the consular offices "are required to cease all operations immediately and be closed by midnight, Dec. 31, 1951." The steps reduced contacts between the United States and the Soviet satellite to a bare minimum altho a complete diplomatic break was ruled out, at least by this country. U. S. retalialion for treatment accorded four U. S. airmen by the communist, satellite nation came swiftly. The four spent 40 days in a Red jail. They were freed yesterday after the U. S. paid their fine--$120,000. Retaliatory steps were announced by Secretary of State Acheson yeslerday. Rodeo Association Has Meeting Denver.
