J., June 9 UP). Bodies of three men were recovered 8id nine men were missing and 'cared dead today after two Navy blimps collided over the Atlantic v-'hile engaged in an experimental mission "involving some hazard," it was announced by officers at the Lakehurst Naval Air Training Station. Only one man of the 13 aboard the two craft is known to have escaped when they collided while flying at about 400 feet altitude and fell into the sea about four or five miles off the Coast Guard station at Manas-quan, N. J., late last night. Both craft apparently sank soon after hitting the water. SURVIVOR JUMPS FROM DIRIGIBLE The survivor was Ensign Howard Simpson Fahey, Jr., Scarsdale, N. Y., who leaped through a window of the blimp L-2 just as it struck the water, thus escaping the full shock of impact. Naval authorities said the 13 men (board the blimps G-l and L-2, including five civilian technicians, wore lifebelts and might have float ed indefinitely had they survived the shock of the crash and been able to escape the wreckage. The discovery of three bodies in the wreckage today seemed to offer little prospect, however, that others had escaped. Coast Guard vessels and planes co-operated in searching for additional dead or survivors, but found no bodies until today, when rescue crews found a clump of wreckage with the bodies of Lt. Cmdr. Clinton S. Rounds, 39, Tom's River, N. J., pilot of the L-2 and senior officer aboard; R. C. Poteet, Langdon, Kan., aviation machinist's mate, and Dr. A. F. Wise, civilian scientist, San Diego. Calif. Rounds, born in Interior, S. D., was a survivor of the crash of the dirigible Macon off the Pacific Coast in 1935. Navy authorities kept secret the reason for the presence aboard the ships of the civilian scientists. In addition to Wise, they included Dr. C. R. Hoover, Middletown, Conn.; L. S. Mover. Minneapolis, and I. H. Tilles. San Diego. Calif., all aboard the G-l, and Dr. F. C. Gilbert. New London, Conn., aboard the L-2. All but Wise are listed as missing. Others missing are; Lt. Frank A. Trotter, Tom's River, N. J., pilot of the G-l; Ensign Clare C. Ross, 27, Jacksonville, Fla., commissioned less than a month ago; Ensign K. G. Lee.

Court, McGhee Will Diseuss 0 'Extra' Costs Commissioners' Court and County Attorney Ernest Guinn Wednesday will meet with Percy McGhee, architect, and Mr. McGhee's attorney, to iron out differences in contract costs of the county's livestock exposition building. The county claims . that Mr. McGhee. who was architect for the building, is financially responsible for "extra" costs in completion of of the building. The county was forced to spend $2600 additional on rebuilding of seat levels alone after an error in the height of the seats had been discovered. The seats had been built to a height of 12 inches, while the height of an ordinary seat is 16 inches. The court paid the contractor extra funds to add slabs to the seats. The court also contends that the cattle shutes and gale arrangements, as designed by the architect, were unsatisfactory and "unworkable." It will seek an adjustment from the architect for extra expenses incurred in these items. , v Ronald Reagan and enchanting Ann Sheridan, the lovers of "Kings Row," are together again in Warner Brothers' exciting film, "Juke Girl" which opens Friday at the Elianay Theater.

Chateau Thierry Hero Wrote It, Fell Chicago. June 9 (UP). America: had a war song tonight out of the mud of Chateau Thierry, a quarter of a century back a song of fighting, of courage, of hope. It wasn't a song to mother, or Mary, Ruth or Sally. It was a victory song for the 126.000 doughboys who gdve their life in World War I for a peace that did not last. "Oh. the drive that we started at Chateau Thierry "Will finish in Berlin" AUTHOR DIED AT ST. MIHIEL It was a simple, marching song to a catchy little tune that won't leave you alone. It was written 24 years ago by a soldier who went through the hell around Chateau Thierry and died shortly aftcp at St. Mihiel. unsung, and today those who remember his song can't remember his name. "It seems to me that he said he was from Ohio," a greying. World War I lieutenant told the Chicago Office of Civilian Defense today. "He was a young chap who came out of Chateau Thierry with honors and went to a machinegun school at Gaulecourt," said the lieutenant, Francis Patton, now an investment banker. The tune was pounded out on a dilapidated piano in a Gaulecourt canteen. The lyrics were written on the back of a letter from home. . "It's a long way to go, "But we'll get there I know." WORDS COPIED ON BACK OF LETTER The young soldier sang, and the others listened, gatton heard him humming it as they lay cot to cot in the barracks. It wouldn't stay out of his mind. He asked for the words and copied it from the back of the letter. "It may be September "October or November." The big offensive came. The young soldier went to St. Mihiel, and didn't return. He didn't see May. or September. But the Armistice came in November with the peace that didn't last. Patton stood before the officials of the OCD singing the song today a song that wouldn't leave his mind for 24 years. The OCD called in some musical experts. They agreed that it was real music, simple music, the music of a soldier. It had none of the, tricks or sophisticated nuances of modern music but it didn't come from Hollywood or Tin-Pan Alley. PREMIERE SET SATURDAY NIGHT The OCD called in some musicians to score the song. A scrip was ordered to give it a premiere on the air on Saturday night June 13. It will be used in Chicago's gigantic 11-hour victory parade on June 14. "Oh, the drive that we started at Chateau Thierry "Will finish in Berlin "It's a long way to go "But we'll get there I know "It may be September ''October or November "But no matter how long it takes to net there "There's no question who will win. "For the drive that we started at Chateau Thierry "Will finish in Berlin." It's a great idea just ask the boys who came home in 1918. ThreeMen Held Butte Water Canadians Wed Aussie Girls; 'Forget Vows' Winnipeg, Man., June 9 (INS). The more than 3500 marriages of Canadian soldiers to Australian girls today provoked a partial ban on this type of romance. So many protests have been received by Australian sweethearts of Canadian boys who have forgotten their marriage vows, according to information officially broadcast in this military district, that no further marriages under those conditions will be authorized by military commanders except where soldiers have at least $160 to their credit in their pay books. This is expected to slow Dan Cupid down.
