AH through the night searchlights had played on the solitary prisoner perched on a rock slab 2x3 feet, jutting a toot and a half above waters In which no man could surrlre. About midnight the ntvy men pot out In a strong boat to one of three Islands between the Maryland shore and Lugenbeel's rock. To this Island they made fast a rope, which they paid out until they reached the second bland. They repeated the process until they reached the third. - Then they fastened ropes to two of their number, who picked a way among rocks to Lugenbeel's side. A two - foot water drop over night aided them In reaching Lugenbecl who fell, weak and exhausted, into their arms from the slippery rock where he had sat cramped seventeen hours. Lugenbeel and a companion were seeking the bodies cf two women drowned in the rapids when their canoe upset.

July 7 (AJ) Discussion of the mystery of Alfred Lowenstein's death by a fall from his airplane Into the sea went on space this afternoon. Efforts to find his body st the point where the crew of his plane and Its other occupants assert he fell Into the English channel through accidentally opening the exit door have been futile. The pilot and mechanic spent several hours cruising about the spot in a tug In fruitless search. Tests made at Le Bourget airdrome Prance, to determine whether It was possible to open the door of a plane m niht showed it was not easy to do so. Two mechanics using a plane sim liar to that from which Lowenstein disappeared, with the motor running at full force, found that the air pressure was so great that their combined strength was Just sufficient to open the door wide enough to permit one of them to pass through it. Yet friends of Lowenstein insist he often opened the door of his plane to look out Rumors that the whole affair was a hoax were circulated in brokers' offices and other concerns interested In dealings of the stock exchanges of London. Paris. Berlin and Brussels. One suggestion was that Lowenstein never left Croydon. Another rumor was that he came down with the plane somewhere between Croydon and Dunkirk, where it was first seen to land, and disappeared, or that he vanished in a fast motor car after landing at Dunkirk. The Daily Express quoted an unidentified intimate friend of Lowenstein as saying the Belgian was subject to sudden heart attacks, due to an abnormal blood pressure. The finding of his collar and tie in the plane suggested to the friend the possibility that Lowenstein had ripped these off to gain relief from a sudden attack. Finding this insufficient, he was thought to have forced open the door, splintering the wooden frame, to get fresh an, collapsed from the exertion and plunged to his death.

Swedish flyer, rescued from the ice floe on which he had shared the fate of five Italia castaways since June 24. there was hope that the others would be taken off soon by planes.
