BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE, NEW YOKK, FRIDAY, JUNE 10, mX Hoover Cancels RapidanTripas Work Piles Up Cliorrf ul Over Economic Outlook After Seeing Rum per Western Crops Washington, June 19 (A1) President, Hoover turned his attention tocifiy to a mass of business accumulated on his desk while he was in the Central States delivering tour speeches. Returning to Washington yesterday afternoon the Chief Executive immediately began work on a large pile of mail. In addition a number of problems and situations confront him, including the new war debt and reparations discussions, and departmental matters. The press of business caused the abandonment of plans to go to the Kapidan camp this weekend, although several departments have yet to review their finances with the President looking to possible reductions in expenditures. Most of the departments hav! completed that task and the President hopes to finish that work with the others before the next fiscal year begins July 1. The sight of prospective bumper rrops throughout the rich agricultural region visited caused Mr. Hoover to be cheerful and optimistic over conditions in that section. Part of the route over which he traveled was through a portion of the country hit by last Summer's prolonged drought. At nearly every stop the President asked some one in the crowd "How are things?" and generally the answer was Pretty good." The increase In retail store sales mentioned in the Indianapolis speech as one of the "favorable factors" asserting themselves is looked upon in Administration circles as having an unusual effect on small industries. This in turn, H was said, is decreasing unemployment in the secondary industrial cities. The fast trip through the great farming belt of the Central States peemed to have tired the President less than some of the members of his party.

A rear pantry door had been left open for an iceman to place ice in the box before the Duryeas returned and the burglars gained entrance to the house by forcing a door between the kitchen and the pantry. The cash burglary was staged at the shoe repair shop of Dominick Diordana on Broadway Tuesday night or yesterday morning. The burglars forced a rear door and helped themselves to $67 in bills and some change which Diordana had secreted in a closet. It is believed the robbers were familiar with his hiding place.

June 19 Six women and two men were rescued from drowning yesterday afternoon In Hempstead Harbor, off here, when a speed boat in which they were riding upset in making a turn and sank. The accident occurred about 500 feet from the spot where the steam yacht Warrior, owned by Harrison Williams, was moored. Neither Williams nor his wife was aboard the boat, but members or the crew put out In a launch and brought the cartv ashore. They were removed to the North Country Community lev Cci i&tipati cii tfwuils nctfiiny ittteL than i Hospital here and after receiving treatment all but two were able to leave the institution. The boat was owned by Mrs. Pauline Hatchitt. wife of S. R. Hatchitt, a biscuit manufacturer, of Beech-hurst, who was aboard the craft, with the Misses Helen, Margaret and Elizabeth Dunne, also of Beech-hurst; Mrs. Bertha Belmore, also of Beechhurst; Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Demldoff, Russians, who were visiting at Beechhurst, and Capt. Andrew Nelson. The party had been cruisin? up the Sound, and as they were off here came into the harbor. The boat was moving rapidly as it neared the Warrior. The speed boat was about to make a turn when those on board the Warrior saw it overturn and sink, throwing the eight persons into the water. Capt. J. J. Unaberg, custodian of the New York Yacht Club Station No. 10, at Glen Cove, also noticed the accident, and telephoned to the hospital. The ambulance arrived about the time the rescued were landed at the New York Yacht Club deck. Miss Elizabeth Dunne, 21, and Demidoff were the most seriously injured. It is believed they may have run foul of the propeller blade, which kept spinning as the craft went down. They were cut and bruised, and when they reached the hospital Demidoff was taken into the operating room. His condition is believed to be very serious. Miss Dunne was cut about the check and body, but is not believed to have been critically injured. Both she and Demidoff, however, remained at the hospital. Mrs. Hatchitt, Miss Helen Dunne and Mrs. Belmore were also somewhat scratched and bruised. The spot where the boat sank has been marked with a buoy and efforts are to be made to raise her. Encyclopedia Brittanicu Says World Book Stole Its Data Argument on a motion for a preliminary injunction against "The World Book," published Jn Chicago, was postponed today in Manhattan Federal Court by Judge Coxe until Monday morning. The motion is made by the Encyclopedia Britannica, which alleges about 500 of its copyrighted articles were plagiarized by the Chicago book. The injunction seeks to restrain further publication and circulation of "The World Book" containing any of the articles alleged to have been plagiarized. Former Federal Judge Edwin L. Garvin appeared for the Encyclb-pedla Britannica and Lloyd P. Stryker for the Chicago book. Both agreed that Monday would give a longer time for discussion of exhibits totaling hundreds of pages. His client Garvin said, was ready to post bond of $1,000,000 If the court deemed that amount necessary to safeguard the publishers of "The World Book" should the preliminary Injunction be granted and a permanent injunction denied following trial of the issues. Garvin said the Encyclopedia Brittanica would ask "very large damages," but the amount would not be decided upon until there had been court discussion. The Encyclopedia Brittanica has been published since 176B. "The World Book," according to Garvin, has been published only since 1917.
