BlyllwvlHe Courier ElyUicvJHe Herald Blj'theyiile Dally News OF NOHTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOtTTHKAST MISSOURI Claim German Planes Dropping Parachute Mines Into Sea Lanes ^n^sss^sr^^Ls^,- £5 sources waul today in fntcnaiflcalioii of sea wurfai-i-'whicl has taken a loll of 22 ships of!' tho British Isles a ml i I ' English Channel since Saturday Hie parachute mines—a start-*— Ung new Na?j <lcvclopment in, modem warfare-was disclosed by 1 British sources. Reports were received of five more ship sinkings. I Two Nazi airplanes were beliov- ed to have sown sea mines In the Thames estuary last night, either ns an experiment or as part of u broad program. Naval sources snicl (hey believed that the mines planted by nir- pJfine had been responsible Cor a Itirge part of the recent shipping disasters. Experts said Ihcy believed thnt Ihe parachutes dropped from the planes dissolved in the water, permitting the mines to sink to the bottom. The parachutes, presumably, were designed to prevent damage lo the delicate mechanism of the mines, (lie British naval exports said. The experts claimed that the sowing of the parachute mines had been confirmed nnd expressed belief that the five latest reported sinkings were due to them. The Inst two reported were the trawler Sulby and the steamer Darlno Three others had been reported early today. The three were the Greek freighter Elena ol 4,570 lolls, which sank off the south coast, where 24 persons aboard Including a woman, were rescued, the British steamer Geraldus, of 2,495 tons, sunk off the east coast, where the crew of 26 wns picked up by a British warship and a French • trawler, sunk oil the southeast coast with probable loss of nine of the 10 persons aboard. In the House of Commons Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain rejected a suggestion that German prisoners be put on British ships as a deterrent against illegal Nazi mine laying. "Such action would be contrary lo the convention governing treatment, of prisoners of war to which His Majesty's government Ls a ._.party nnd • which they . willJ.con- • Urine -to observe,'" lie said; * .: Boy Accosts Two Girls And Lands in Harbor BOSTON (UP)—Social arbiters might frown on this method, but James Smith, 15, certainly hns learned not to speak to strange girls.
