R. PILAT 1 Search today for the tugboat Col. ndbergh, a story in itself, led to scovery of Capt. John McFadden, jllege-bred Scotchman, philosopher id world traveler, who furnished a even oeuer story. The Col. Lindbergh was once the la-going lighthouse tender L. D. otter. After 17 years of service, the lovernment sold her in 1927 to a cooklyn towing concern, about the me Col. Charles A. Lindbergh ar-ved in New York after his solo sent to Paris. If you recall that Lindbergh har-hr reception, a tug named the Col. nnncrgn icq me piuicn -k v..v 'y. That was the former L. D. Pot-ir, renamed for the occasion. After Us single day of glory, the tug was 'd up along the Brooklyn Heights aterfront. There she has been ever nee, for want of work. Fools Harbor Nrate The Col. Lindbergh was found In ,ie midst of a whole fleet of idle ,ics, tied up at Pier 5, all of them jider protection of Capt. John Mc-ftdden. He explained that robbers td recently gutted the Col. Lind-iM'Rh of her copper and that he fid been assigned to guard the ,lier ships. He had scared away ime robbers only two nights ago. ,Yes, he liked the work, said Capt. rFadden. At 61 a man can't pick is jobs the way he can when he is .mng. .He inviled us inside the cabin of iie of the tugs which served as his -imp. There was a mattress thrown a trie llnor.

The conversation somehow turned international affairs. Captain fcFadden did not believe in amity rnong the nations. "As Lord Duffren, one-time Eng-'sh Ambassador to France, once "marked, nations 'love' the same as or forefathers did, with the power f their right arms," he said. we missed tne next lew sentences l amazement. : "Nations wait their time." he was sying when we recovered.

Washington, Jan. 8 The scheme to construct a canal from Graves-end Bay, through Sheepshead Bay to Jamaica Bay, declared chimerical by Government engineers and abandoned last year, was recalled today when Congressman Patrick J. Carlcy of Bay Ridge sponsored a bill providing for a survey of Coney Island Creek with a view to deepening it and making it available for navigation. Carley's bill, however, does not seek to resurrect the abandoned canal project, which It was estimated would cost the Federal government about $2,000,000 and the city about $20,000,000. It provides only for the examination of Coney Island Creek with a view to determining how present and future commeice might be benefited by Government improvements. Use of the stream is now confined to the mouth, where a fairly deep channel exists, it Ls said. In 1919. when the canal protect was advanced, it was navigable to small boats as far as Ocean Parkway. Since then, however, a school and many houses have been erected on what was once the bed of the creek, according to Mr. Carlcy. M. L. Lowenstein Dies at Age of 80 Marcus L.

Man, 88, to Wed 8th Time; Long in Habit Conway, Ark., Jan. 8 (Pi About 70 years ago Thomas H. Ward became convinced that it was not good for a man to live alone, so he got married, and thereby acquired a habit. Ward had a license today to wed his eighth bride, Mrs. Jennie Ward, also his wife on a previous adventure. He married his seventh wife two months ago but they were soon divorced. Ward will be 83 on July 4. as low as $40. Rye, priced at $125 a case, is now down to $75 or less. Guaranteed and Other Kinds These figures apply to liquor guaranteed by the seller as A-No. 1 in quality, label and all. Lower prices are asked for less desirable liquor Scotch, for example, cut four-to-onc and "Scotch'' and "rye" made in Long Island's own bootleg distilleries. Some of it, frankly dubbed "varnish remover," may be had, by any one who wants it, at 50 cents per half-pint bottle. The official attitude of enforcement authorities is that practically no liquor comes through Long Island, but residents on the island and others close to the situation insist that the flood of alcoholic beverages coming in by way of Long Island remains practically unabated and that competition among rum runners and bootleggers for a declining custom declining chiefly because of the business depression-has resulted in the lower prices. "Coming In All the Time" A hiuh official, who declined to have his name mentioned, declared that liquor is "coming in all the time" on the north shore of the "south fluke" of Long Island, from Southampton, East Hampton and east to Montauk. Small bays and Inlets, with shallow water, give the light-draft fast rum boats an excellent chance to escape the rum chasers a chance which they do not miss. During the past few nights there has been a letup in the landing of rum because of the full moon. The liquor runners prefer the dark of the moon, or practically any cloudy, stormy night. Huge quantities are said to be piling up in barns and other caches. 14 Brooklyn College Students Rewarded Six Brooklyn College students will receive gold keys, seven silver ones and another honorable mention for service to the college.

NEW YORK CITY, THURSDAY, JANUARY S, 1931. New Brooklyn School 'Fixing' Cases Reported Suhmitletl hv Dr. Hoss to Kvaminers Board Mow Total Seven Three more Brooklyn cases of alleged bar'ering for placement on the teachers' license No. 1 list in the city school system today were submitted to the Board of Examiners by Dr. Maxwell W. Ross, president of the Allied local School Boards of Brooklyn This Dimes the total of such cases fiubmittcj by Dr. Ross to the board tlii- week to seven, all of them Involving Brooklyn teachers or would-be teachers, except one, that in the Bronx. Superintendent William J. O'Shea yesterday began a sifting of evidence nnd testimony of the first three Brooklyn cases. If he finds sufficient corroboration to the charges he will submit them to District Attorney Geoghan. he said; Lead to Two Sets of "Fixers" According to Ross, who left today for Albany, where he will argue an appeal sihool case before the Stale Education Commission tomorrow, the six Brnoklvn cases lead to two different .vets of "fixers," people who claim, tlnough political connection, that they can get a person on the teaching list and even buy a "Job." This Is the first 'time, school officials said, that persons are alleged to have pal'' for positions on the eligible list. To get on the eligible list on; must take com-petltixe examination, and the plnce on the list is dependent upon the grade received in the examination. No Word From Train's Office A month ago. however, President Ryan of the Board of Education turned over reports of allesed buying a transfer for a Brooklyn teacher from Staten Island to Brooklyn, to District Attorney Crain, but nothing had yet been heard from Crain's office. The new complaints, Involving extortion, like the first, one concern a "third party." In the new cases, however, names, dates and places are now in the hands of Dr. O'Shea. Report Money Paid Back In one of the cases a woman teacher's relatives are said to have paid $600 to a man representing himself as an officer of a political club. This money, so the story goes, was to be used not only for a place on the eligible list, but. also for a teaching pontion. The woman pventually got on the list, sfler takinj an examinr.lion. The man Is said to have paid back $300 when he couldn't fulfil! the latter part of the "contract." that of getting a position, and subsequently to have paid bark the remaining $300 saying he was not influential in getting her name on the eligible list. The other rases, Ross said. Involved alleged payment either by relatives or the would-be teachers themselves of sums upwards of $400 and $500. Ever -Rising Living Costs Rouse France Economists Warn Retailers They -Must Soon Lower Prices to Correspond to WTioIesale Rates By GUY Paris, Jan. 2 The distinction of being, with the exception of Russia, the only country in which the cost of living is still rising belongs to France. Retail prices are still inching their way upward at a time when wholesale prices- are, and have been for months, going down. The latest index shows wholesale costs at 504 and retail costs at 647, a gap of 143 points between them. The average wholesale index figure (or the 12 months of 1929 was.B23, the present figure representing a drop of more than 100 points. Retailers for some unknown reason continue to move their figures up, the present index, 647, showing an increase of 36 points over 1929. Retailers Warned That a break will come is assumed. But when and how keeps govern ment officials and economists awake nights. Andre Tardieu warned the retailers that if they did not find a way to follow the decline in whole sale prices manufacturers would learn to sell without them. The present Finance Minister, Germain Martin, says: "An adjustment in prices is urgent. It should be accomplished In an atmosphere of conciliation. If merchants, accustomed to larse and easy profits, believe they ran. with impunity, continue to flout consumers, they are badly mistaken." One economist warns that the high level of retail prices admits foreign goods to the market which compete with French production and will cause unemployment. He points out that in England, America. Norway, Switzerland, Belgium,- Sweden. Poland and Czechoslovakia retail prices have fallen, while in France alone they are soaring. Lucien Romler, one of the ablest economists of the country, points out that the retail index "which seemed stabilized In the autumn has since registered a rise of 10 points at a time when the wholesale index has fallen 15."

William Oreeff of the Department of Hos pitals let it be known today that he does not consider Swinburne Island suitable for a tuberculosis hospital, his experience of yesterday when he was ma rooned there for an hour after the city's trusty welcoming ship Macom had gone aground on the Island's rocks. Commissioner Greet! was making a special visit to the island. Instead of buildings which could be transformed Into a hospital, he found only dilapidated shacks. The Macom, which carried him to the island, southeast of .Staten. was causht In an ebb tide and a heavy gale. Distress signals attracted the attention of the Public Health boat F. W.

"Nearly every other country has made the adjustment. France, in being the last, risks being left in the middle of a depression whrn all other countries are recovering from their. Germany has compressed her prices, with the result that, her exports to us have Increased 3.000.-000.000 francs in two years. Our exports to Germany have dwindled an equivalent amount, a clear loss to French production of francs, due to our exaggerated prices. "At the very latest we will enter the acute phase when France stops receiving gold from abroad. Then the Bank of France will not have to increase the currency circulation to meet the Influx of gold. The quantity of notes in circiihition will tend to diminish clue to hoarding, which itself Is due to the uncertainty as to banks. "Buying will cease. Bills will be paid with grealer and greater delays. Even the State will see ils receipts decreased, and our real difficulties will bc:rin. Must we wait supinely for this to happen, or ran we. by enersetic measures, break the steady climb of prices?" How to do that, he does not say. Move to Condemn Sheepshead Bay Land Another step toward improvement of the Sheepshead Bay waterfront was taken yesterday by city officials when condemnation proceedings were instituted before Justice Dike in Supreme Court to acquire a strip of land from Shcephcad Bay Road to E. 27th St.. including land under water and upland running back some 175 feet from the shore front.

Connors ami All Recall Happy Days on Stape and Rinp By MAURICE E. Mcl.Ol GHLIN Joe Weber, Lew Fields and Jim Corbett played a matinee in Brooklyn yesterday afternoon. It was not advertised. In fact the public was not Invited. The "audience" was probably the smallest that these three celebrities of the stage and ring had ever appeared before. It consisted of one man. He was Edward S. Connors, a former pugilist, who had known Wcbrr nnd Firlds and had lived with them In the same theatrical boarding house in Philadelphia two-score years aeo when the comedians were struggling for recognition on the variety stage. Connors had known Corbett before his fight with Sullivan. Like Story In Bonk It all happened like a story in a book. A few nights ago, Connors and some old pals were having dinner in a restaurant near the Long Island depot. A young girl at a nearby table overheard Connors reminiscing about his youth and heard him express nn earnest wish to see Weber and Fields and Corbett at least once a'ain before he riles. He is now over 80 and seemed to leel that if he did not sec his old friends soon, it might be too late. The girl called Joe Weber on the phone, explained that Connors had been listening to the team nn the radio and told how this had brought back a flood of memories that gave htm a yearning to grip their hands and that of Corbett before answering the gong for the final round of, life's battle. Decide to Visit Connors Weber was deeply touched and Fields felt the same way when he heard about it. Then they called up Corbett and early yesterday afternoon the trio accompanied by Weber s brother Jumped Into a taxi and came over to Brooklyn. The stage was set in what had once been the back parlor of an old brick house at 548 State St.. It now serves as the living room and sleeping apaitmeni of Connors and his chum, George Montcs. Show Lasts for Hour The "show" began at 2:15 p.m. and lasted about an hour. The "audience." who had not been in the best of health, was attired In pajamas, dressing gown and slippers. When the three visitors entered on the scene, Connors rose, and tears came to his eyes as he grasped their outstretched hands. Then everybody sat down for a good old-fa.shloned chat, which was for the most part about the professional boarding house In Philadelphia kept by "Mother" Bungcr, who "mothered" all the variety actors and pugilists that could be crowded under her hospital roof. "You remember." said Weber, "that she only used to charge $4 a week, with three meals a day?" "Do I remember?" said Fields "You hrt. And when the house was full. If you ssreed to sleep with old man Bunger, she only soaked you $3." Rejected at Flrt "The first flme we tried to break Into 'Mother' BunKcr's," said Joe. "str? wouldn't take us because It was the first time we had played Philadelphia, and she took In only performers that had become known. Well, we made good, and the next time we played 'Phllly' we had the front parlor, with all the de luxe trimmings, for $6 a week. "And do you remember the poker games with 'Mother' Bunger?" said Connors. "I should so say." said Weber. "Phe had a silver ball hanginc from the aas fixture that seemed Just like a nice ornament. We all sat around the table, and it -s a long time before we discovered that when 'Mother' Bunger glanced up at the M 2 TO SEE OU I HIEM) r i j silver ball, she could read our hands, and, of course, had us licked before we started." Only Actors Counted Wcher rcrallcd that he and Fields had played one solid year at Cam-cross' Minstrels cthe Hooley's of Philadelphia! and that thv had hoarded with "Mother" Bunger all of that time, with good fun every day, and good food prepared by "Mother" Bunger, who evidently didn't rare for anything In the world but actors. After "Mother" Bunger's memory had received Its proper tribute Corbett and Connors remlnlsred about the good old days of the ring, when pugilists did things In a two-Msled way, and agreed that affairs piml-listic were very different then from what they are now. Coiisi-nts to riiolo;rapli When it was .suggested to Connors that a photograph of the reunion would be a nice thing to have he demurred, but at the urgent solicitation of Joe, Lew and Jim he con sented, after the Eagle rameraman had shown him the new bulb that makes smokeless and smelless flashlight snapshots posslhle. Handshakes and good wishes ended the "performance," and Joe, Lew and Jim made their exit Into the taxi, which started bark to Broadway, while the "audience" settled in his arm chair to dream of "Mother" Bunger and her fine meals and the poker games under the silver ball.
