DEVALERA LOSES LEAD AS OTHERS PILE UP 60 SEATS Government and Opposition Have Same Number With 18 Still to Come I By Tht Canadian Prate) DUBLIN, July 5. President Eamon De Valera's Fianna Fail party appeared today to have lost the slender lead indicated In earlier returns. The government, with 18 constituencies to be heard from, had 60 seats, against an identic number for all others in the field. Labor, with 11 seats, appeared likely to hold the balance of power In the new parliament. The principal oppositoin party, William T.

Cosgrave's Fine Gael, had 41 seats, while Independents were elected in eight. Tor New Constitution The general election was held July 1 but the complicated system of balloting under proportional representation and the Inaccessibility of many districts have slowed up the returns.

Observers predicted De Valera would be unwilling to carry on for long with the aid of Labor, which has been increasingly critical of his administration of late, A new election within six months was predirted in some quarters. ROMANCE OF DUKE CALLED A LASTING SPIRITUAL MATCH NEW YORK, July 5.

Robert Anderson Jardine, who arrived aboard the Queen Mary for a two month coast to coast lecture tour, said he thought It "unfair" for the Church of England not to look at the wedding from the spiritual standpoint. "The Archbishop of Canterbury took a political view of the subject rather than a spiritual view," he said. Mr. Jardine thought the romance of the Duke and Mrs.

Warfleld was "a real lasting love match. They are Intensely happy," he said. "Those who say it will not last are false prophets. It is really a spiritual match."

Some catch on quickly, others are quite content to keep on wading. Encouraging the Backward From this they go through various stages until they are able to swim the length of the tank. Mr. Brooks and his assistants are kept busy looking after the youngsters and encouraging the more backward ones. Each boy gets five free lessons and at the end of that time, if he cannot swim and has attended regularly, he will get further free instruction.

All the boys are taught at the Y.M.C.A., while the girls are taught at the Sherbrook and Prit baths, where Miss Girls Register Fort chard baths. These baths are open to The Tribune classes by courtesy of the Parks Board. In former years The Tribune has opened its classes to girls from 11 to 16 years of age.

While a few children may be missed in this first year of the new plan it will Insure instructing all children of this age in future and also insure more satisfactory teaching.

At both baths this morning Miss Margaret Hutchinson and Mins Julia McDonald with their assist I ants were bnrri at work. Some of jthe girl pupils, were like little fish. They seemed to know what the water was for and how to use It.

Other classes were held for the girls at the Shernrook Margaret Hutchinson is In charge, Lessons Others were just a bit timid. They stood In the shallow end shivering and shaking. That didn't last long, however, because the Instructresses soon. took them In hand and had fhem ducking and splashing as though they had done it all their lives.

Some of them were even half way across before they took hold of the long pole and were pulled ashore. And after six lessons most of these embryo swimmers will climb In and swim the length of the tank with practically no trouble. If they are not able to they will be given six more lessons. One thing that the classes are told to remember Is that just because they can swim in the tank they must not think they can jump in the Red River or any old lake they happen to see. The better the swimmer, the more careful be is.

A good swimmer doesn't go In strange or deep water without someone being near in case help is needed. 1 $10,000 FIRE BRIERCREST.

By Tht Aitoclltld Prtul LOS ANGELES, July 5. Three, long dashes on radio key transmission received at 5 a.m. (8 a.m. C.D.T.), on the wave length assigned to Amelia Earhart were declared today by Paul Mantz, her technical adviser, to be the most hopeful sign yet received that she is alive and on land. "The Pan American station in Hawaii sent out instructions to her including one to send three long dashes if on land," Mantz sai d.

"George Palmer Putnam, her husband, telephoned to me a short time ago he was advised that three dashes were heard almost immediately sent out.

The mayor was named chairman of the Joint Airport committee at its organization meeting today. Reeve R.

H. Hooper, of St. James, was named vice chairman. Other members of the committee are Aldermen Honeyman and Simpkin, for Winnipeg, and Councillors T. E.

These will be worked out by the engineers and solicitors, and the plans will be given final approval by the chair man and vice chairman before tenders are Called.

Minor disagreements between Winnipeg and St James concerning division of labor and some other items, have been satisfactorily ironed out. Mayor War riner said. Levelling and drainage of the airport with construction of tfo 3,000 foot hard surfaced runway will be the principal work done on the field this year. Winnipeg, which has contributed some land, lighting and other services, is giving $20,000 In labor. St.

AMocHted Prnl HONOLULU, July 5. Navy officials said they received a garbled radio message early today, purported to have been sent by Amelia Earhart, which Indicated her plane was sinking. The message received by three United States navy operators was pieced together as follows: "281 North Howland call KHAQQ beyond north don't hold with us much longer above water shut off." The operators said keying of the message was poor and they were able to pick up only fragments of the message. Officials took the message, if It was authentic, to mean the plane was about 281 miles north of How land Island by Miss Earhart's estimate, and sinking slowly, forcing her to stop Dross Bearings Taken Earlier this morning cross bearings taken on weak radio signals believed from Miss Earhart and her navigator, Frederick Noonan, further confused weary Pan American operators at Howland and Wake Islands. The radiomen, who have maintained a ceaseless vigil in an effort to contact, and locate tha missing globe girdling plane, said the bearing fixed the location of the mysterious transmitter as roughtly 400 miles northeast of HowlantMsland.

This location, they said, was miles from any landfall. A previous bearing taken by Pan American and coastguardsmen here Sunday night placed the sender In the vicinity of Gardner and McKean Islands tn the Phoenix group, approximately 150 miles south of Howland. Signals Are Weak Officials said the later bearing may be Inaccurate because of the weakness of the signals. The British steamer Moorby, 240 miles north of Howland, reported It heard a strong, continuous carrier wave frequency near midnight Sunday night, and for the last time at 1 a.m. (6.30 a.m.

C.D.T.). Coast guardsmen declared they last heard the carrier at Honolulu at 1.30 (7 am. C.D.T.). The coast guard cutter Itasca, whose radio was silent until messages presumably from the Earhart plane were Intercepted by Baker Island colonists, 40 miles southward, and by the portable station on Howland, began transmitting signals with the hope they would be received by the plane. Station KGMB In Honolulu, a commercial station, Instructed the mysterious station to listen for the Itasca signals.

DREAD RUST NOW INFECTS CROP IN MELITA DISTRICT Weather In Next 3 Weeks Determining Factor in Extent of Harm The rust scourge now threaten! crops In southwest Manitoba, harassed by six successive crop failures from drought and grasshoppers, a report from tha Do minion Rust Research laboratory indicated today.

Up to the moment there has been no appreciable damage, but in the Melita district, the centre of the prolonged drought area, stem rust has developed on 75 percent of the wheat plants. How much it may spread within the next three weeks will determine whether farmers of the area can save the first crop they have grown In seven years. Growth so far has been good, although moisture Is badly needed. Saskatchewan and Alberta over the weekend continued to register scorching temperatures. At 10 points Sunday tha thermometer reading was 102 or over, but in Manitoba the situation was better.

The highest recorded temperature in the southwest at noon today was only 90 at Pierson. In and around the town there was shower, only enough to lay the dust. At Melita the temperature was 85 but there has been no rain for a month. Forecast Hopeful The forecast for Manitoba today was also encouraging, "fair and becoming cooler." Cool weather, It was stated, would slow down propagation of rust spores. The investigation of crop conditions was made last week by Dr.

B. Peterson, assistant plant pathologist of the research laboratory. The heaviest Infection Is in the southwest. From there Is reaches out in diminishing intensity until in the Red River Valley there is scarcely any at all. In all districts where rust has been located the infection is light, even though detected on a large proportion of the crop.

At VIrden Dr. Peterson reported Jt affected only 50 percent of the plants. At Brandon It Is at low as 20 percent; at Douglas 10 percent, and at Portage la Prairie one percent. In the Red River Valley, both east and immediately west of the river, rust spores were found on only an occasional plant. Wheat Infection there is on Mar quis, Ceres, and Reward varieties.

On the fields of Durum it is much lighter. On the Thatcher and Renown there is none at all. The Thatcher variety was originated In Minnesota, grown successfully In 1935 and 1936 by a Dominion Citv farmer, whose 1935 crop of 5,000 bushels was bought up by Hon. D. G.

McKenzie when he was minister of agriculture, and distributed by his department at cost for seed purposes. Officials of the rust laboratory would make no forecast of possible damage. Conditions of wind and weather uere the big determining factors, they said, and If very favorable the damage might be limited to a reasonable minimum. Making Survey Hon. D.

L. Campbell, minister of agriculture, said the situation was disturbing. Unable to do anything to slop the spread of rust, if un favorable weather does come, the department is making a survey of all fields of the supposedly rust resistant varieties of Thatcher and Renown. If they stand up, the supplies will probably be bought up by the government to distribute for seed. Dr.

Peterson's survey did not take him north of Virden. No ru" was found on the oat crop. The high temperature readings in Saskatchewan and Alberta Sunday were: Medicine Hat, 106; Empress, Alta, 106; Klndersley, 106; Outlook, 106; Saskatoon, 104; Moose Jaw, 104; Swift Current, 104; Reglna. 102; Yellowgrasa, 10'J; Shaunavon, 102..
