UP) --In the first report he has been ablo to make to his government, Capt. Abram Kean, Jr., told this morning of the explosion which cost him his ship and the lives of probably 25 men Sunday night. His report was cabled the Canadian Press, here by Hon. H. B. C. Lake, minister of marine and fisheries. Captain Kean said he was on the bridge when the explosion tore his vessel. He was hurled to the Ice, thru which the steamer was slowly pushing her way, and was severely injured. Check Survivors. He said a check had been made of 118 survivors who had succeeded in reaching Horse island over the eight miles of heaving ice floes. As a result of this check ha reported, his three American passengers, Varrick Frissell, A. E. Penrod and Harry Sargent, were missing as well as the navigator, Capt. W. Kennedy; the chief engineer, J. Murphy; the second engineer, F. Parnell; the third engineer, H. Hanniford; the ship's physician. Dr. W. J. Roach; the wireless operator, C. King, and the steward, S. TJlett. The mate, Alfred Kean, he said, was still on the ice with a broken leg. Five Badly Hurt. Five seriously injured men were in a dory four or fiye miles from shore, with two men standing by, the skipper said. It was hoped the rescue steamers, Foundation Franklin and Sagona, now nearing the scene, would be able to rescue these men. It is doubtful whether they could reach the land unaided, because of an offshore wind and their weakened condition. Captain Kean reported food low at Horse island, and no medical supplies of any kind. onjoia Huxtable Drug Store 116 South Federal Ave. JUNIOR DIVISION LEADS IN DRIVE TO GET MEMBERS First Reports Made at Membership Dinner Tuesday Noon.

Bldg. - Tells How To Get Rid of Stubborn Torturing ECZEMA By MISS orris BAHTLETT (Wireless Operator Horse Island, Newfoundland) HORSE ISLAND, N. F., March 17. (JPi--At about 9 o'clock Sunday night, I heard a heavy explosion off shore in the ice fields. It as too dark to see what had occurred then, so It was not until after daybreak Monday that we were able to discern the nature of the trouble. Then, about eight miles east of here, we saw the smoldering sealing steamer and later learned that it was the Viking. ThrUout the day yesterday, the survivors fought their way shoreward over the ice fields. Today. 118 men, including the captain of the Viking, had landed safely on th 13 island. The captain had received several severe injuries, having been thrown 12 feet, from the bridge of his vessel by the explosion. He said there were 150 men aboard his ship. Several others of the men suffered severe injuries and, at present we have estimated that there probably are about 20 dead. The navigator, the ship's cook, the ship's doctor and the, -mate were among those missing. Other men who had shipped to take motion pictures of life in the far north also were missing.

"itch and Gardner Discuss Gardening At the assembly room of the courthouse Monday night a group of men and women interested In gardening were led In discussions if some of their problems by C. L. ''itch of Ames and Harry Gardner. These men are planning experimental plantings and methods to :ry and solve some of the problems met by vegetable growers. Mr. Fitch said that wet weather ripens potatoes quicker than dry and recommended good seed, properly fertilized and prepared ground and sufficient economical spraying as essentials in potato growing. The Indians used fish and wood ashes as farmers and gardeners now use commercial fertilizers, it was stated. Twenty per cent phosphate fertilizer is usually the first one to be used because rich soils like that in Iowa first become short In phosphorus. In row and hill fertilizing the minerals should be placed 4 to 6 Inches but never touching the seed or plants.
