A Moriov., piCMdent of the Pittsburgh Coal Companv, advocated elimination of tht governmental price-fixing piovisions of the act In an address before the Southeastern Section of the American Institute ot Mining and Metallurgical Engineers Saturday night, Moiiow estimated that taxes and assessments levied under the act, \\hich scekr to regulate tli« bituminous industry, total $6,000,0110 to 58 000,000 in addition to clerical and other administrative expenses "The demoralization of coal once 1 ; generally attributed to the act caused a loss in revenue approximating $50,000,000 in the jear 1938, and m the pieeeding year during the 'months when the ict in effect, a further loss of $15,000,000 to $20,000,000," Morrow contended "Thus to date, the cost to the industry is apparently in the neighborhood of 570,000 000 "A new Congress is in session, from which we have reason to expect saner action," Morrow added "Let us ask the amendment of this monstrosity to eliminate all these unfortunate governmental price-fixing provisions. "Instead, as amendments,-let us ask the enactmcnCbf somo'simplc standards of fair compctltion_in the sale of bituminous co~al^ enlarge the permitted scope of sales agencies under the supervision of an appropriate Federal agency, and then initiate our own job of industry improvmcnt "Wo one can asscit with any confidence, flitt that prices can ever be Cbtablishc under this act, second, that, if established, they can be kept m effect, or third, th it if established and maintained, they will not divert millions of tons of coal business to oil, gas, government-nnonced hydroelectric power and other substitutes " Continued from Pane One Alderson--were in a serious condition, but Mrs Edna Watson of Bermuda one of the passengcis, radioed the United Press that no o'.e had been hurl, though all vvete exhausted from the oideal Captain Frank Spun, mastci of the Dayto\\n, radioed thlt his rescued ones -would need overcoats, trousers, -and shoes, and these and other articles ot clothing were assembled on the dock by Impel lal Airways True to the tndltion of tight-!ippd seamen--he is the fifth generation ot his family to command ships--his messages ashore were few and laconic But from them and from the equally sparse messages of the commanders of the three Coast Guard cutters--the Ch implnm, the Pontchartrain and the Eric--it was possible to piece much of the story of the sufferings of the Cavalier's survivors and of thr heroism of the Baytown's crcv. The Cavalier took off at 10 A. M Saturday from Port Washington with Chdiles Talbot of Brooklinc, Mass,, a Harvard student, who carried one arm in a cast and a sling, Mrs Watson, Mrs. George Ingham of Hamilton, Bcimudti, Miss Nellie Smith ot Pembroke, Bermuda, Mr. and Mrs Noakes and Mi. and Mrs Miller and her regular crew of five At 12 23 P.

Francis Hicks ot Pittsburgh spent the day with his mother, Mrs Frank Hicks, who is spending the winter at the Wilted Hotel later, she said the weather still was bad and at 12 57 sent the official call of distress--SOS This was followed immediately bj the fragmentary ox- plan ition that ice was foming, and at 1 13 she was, on the water and her radio said its last word--' Sinking' Upon hitting the water, the hull o; the Cavalier split and the sea pourec m Shepherded by Alderson, each man and woman grabbed the life bel which formed the cushion of each seat, and dropped into the ocean There wasn't time to strap the belts on; there wasn't time to pull down the rubber rafts from the ceiling The last person was birely out o her \vhen the Cavalier went to the bottom Once in the water, Commander Raymond T.
