(OP) — soarch parties reported "no sign of life around the severed bow of the Army freighter Clarks- rtalo Victory today. H was believed that all 51 crew- /ftn perished when the stern broke Sifay and slipped Into the Pacific Ocean off the British Columbia Monday night. LI- Comdr. Fred . T . Sclirelbcr. leader of the search, reported by walkie-talkie radio from tiny Hip- pa Island that the grounded vessel had cracked In half under 50- fool waves whipped by higli winds. The break looked "clean and sudden" Just forward of the 7,000- ton freighter's super-structure, Indicating that the entire crew had perished In the of the storm-lashed coast of the lonely Uland, Schreiber said. But Schreiber scheduled a thorough search of the Island today on the remote chance of finding survivors.

A search of the island during the night failed to locate any later In the day. Officials admitted, however, that "things look dark." The Clarksdale Victory, commanded by Capt. Gerald n. LaiiB- csen. Oakland. Cal., tore into underwater rocks off the Southwest beach of the remote Island about 10 pm. (PSTI. It was cnroute from Whlttler, Alaska, to Seattle.

The Clarksdale Victory, carrying 100 tons of general cargo to Seattle, was on e of the regular fleet of Army vessels plying the Aleutian chain and points in Alaska and along the West Const.
