The trial of the former chief j investigator of the department of public safetv will move into its fifth day Friday with the state's case still not completed.

Nov. 16. (P) The European war at sea j reached the Indian ocean Thursday with the reported sinking j of a British tanker off the east African coast by a German ! raider. ! Dispatches from Capetown, Union of South Africa, told I of the raider's attack on the 706-ton Africa Shell and said the ! captain was taken prisoner. I Some reports said a "warship" sank the British vessel but j authoritative Capetown circles described the raider as an armed merchantman of about 10,000 tons. The ship went down 180 miles northeast of Lourenco Marques. ; Mozambique. This is the Mozambique channel, an arm of the i Indian ocean between the Portuguese colony of Mozambique on I the east Africa coast and French island of Madagascar. I The German pocket-battleships Deutschland and Admiral Scheer. both 10,000-ton warships, have been at sea for months.
