Navy officers in Tokyo said numerous (baling mines had been sighted in the Hungnam area fol owing a typhoon which roared across the Korean Peninsula two weeks ago. It was probably one of hese thai sank Ihe Sarsi, they said. Three ships arrived al the scene within 30 minules and began an all-nighl search for survivors. One of those rescued was the commanding officer, LI. W. .M. Howard, of Norfolk, Va. The search was inilialed by the destroyer USS Boycl and the minesweepers USS Zeal and USS Competent, after they were unable lo reach Ihe Sarsi by radio. Other ships joined the search later and a helicopter was dispatched to the ;ccnc al dawn. Lt. Howard, one of the first to be pulled from the water, directed the rescue ships to life rafts and boats. The job of fixing (he number ol missing crewmen was complicated by the loss of all records and the dispersal of survivors among many rescue vessels. When early figures were checked, it was feared that more than 50 men had been lost Later, when reports of survivors licked up by various ships were in ht list dwindled lo three missinf and two known dead. · A total of 11 ships have been hi by mines off Korea. Six of them sank. The Sarsi's casualties brought to 99 the number of crew men killed by mines in tbe Korean War. House Probers Dig Into Long Fraud Wrangle WASHINGTON, Aug. 29 Ml _ Tousc Invcsligalors today delved into Ihe record of a Detroit war frauds case dropped by Ihe Jus- lice Department afler seven years of maneuvering-despite efforts of FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover to bring it lo trial. Poring over department files, a lousf j u d i c i a r y subcommittee found Hoover first asked about a definite trial dale In March, 1947, almost four years aftlr Ihe Jus- 'ice Deparlment slarled looking in- o the case. Hoover noted at j h a t time t h a t defense altorneys were making "a series of parades" to the Justice Department. He also said he had leard reports of poliliral pressure n Ihe case. There was no elaboration of this point.' Padded Time Slips The case involved Norman K. Miller, head of a Detroit engineering firm, bearing his name, which had war contracts. Miller was in- dlcled in July, 1944, on a. charge of padding time slips lo defraud Ihe governmenl of $14,000. The case was dropped in 1950. Hoover didn't get an answer to his 1947 inquiry for a month, according to correspondence read into the record. Hoover asked again in May, 1947, about the prospecls of bringing the case to trial, saying failure to do so would reflect unfavorably on the FBI and the criminal division of the Justice Department. further records showed Hoover once had to wait five months for a reply to an inquiry he made ot Peyton Ford, former deputy attorney general, as to when the case would get to court. In this fashion, the investigators Found, Ihe case lingered through the administrations of three attorneys genera] until finally it was dropped-"enfcebled with age." The House committee is looking for evidence that the Justice Department dragged its feet in prosecuting a number of cases. At The Hospital Admitted Mrs. Jack Dolby, 504 -E, Third Street.
