Maritime circles said tonight that German planes and submarines had been attacking Swedish ships despite Nazi promises of free passage.

The 6,991-ton Venezuela, one of the finest ships in the Swedish merchant marine, left Gothenburg April 8 and was attacked by Nazi planes near the Faroes. She escaped and nicked up the Carolina Thorden survivors at Thorshavn, Faroes Islands. Sweden, choked off from trade fcy the blockade, has lost 97 ships during the war. She recently persuaded Germany and Britain to permit her to sail six ships f month. The Venezuela was the third reported sunk in a month. Former Arizona Treasurer Funeral sen-ices for Charles R.

WASHINGTON, June 2—(AP)— The philosophy of Chief Justice Charles Evans" Hughes is expressed in a number of oft-quoted passages from his opinions and speeches. Here are some examples: "I have the highest regard for the courts. My whole life has been spent in work conditioned upon respect for the courts. I reckon him one of the worst enemies of the community who will talk lightly of the dignity of the bench. We are under a constitution, but the constitution is what the judges say t is, and the judiciary is the safeguard of our liberty and of our iroperty under the constitution."— n a speech to the Elmira Cham- jer of Commerce while governor if New York.

"What can be closer to the pubic interest than the health of women and their protection from' unscrupulous and overreaching employers? And if the protection of women is a legitimate end of the exercise of state power, how can t be said that the requirement of he payment of a minimum wage 'airly fixed in order to meet the •ery necessities of existence is not an admissible means to that end?" —in his opinion holding constitutional the Washington law fixing minimum wages for women.

Phoenix and the Valley of the Sun may become the nation's center for commercial soilless farming, Ernest Brundin, Montebello, Calif., told members of the board of the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce yesterday. During a tour of inspection of operations of Chemical Farms Inc., at the Tropical Groves nursery yesterday by the board, Mr. Brundin said this section "offers the finest winter sunlight and other climatic and water conditions that we yet have found." Tomatoes Are Grown The first unit of Chemical Farms is specializing in growing tomatoes. This, said Mr. Brundin, originator of the chemical farming method used by the concern, is to be followed three other units. "Luxury" crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers, roses, gardenias and carnations will be grown for winter trade, he said. Present methods, it was pointed out, make it too expensive to attempt production of vegetables on a large scale and no competition will be offered field crops. our own conscience and as we understand the Scriptures, let us nevertheless join hands with every man who seeks to strengthen the heart and the good purpose of men, who recognize that there is a God over all, and who feels that there is a divine way for the human soul to obtain help and victory in this world of temptation and of danger."—in an address at Calvary Baptist Church at Washington, of which he is a member. The chamber delegation was the guest of Wyllys R. Belts, president of Chemical Farms, Inc., at a luncheon. Other hosts were George H. Carey, vice-president; Joseph E. Thompson, jr., secretary-treasurer, and Mr. Brundin. The visitors were taken on a tour of inspection and saw ripe tomatoes growing on vines in a greenhouse that supplies only water and dissolved chemical minerals to the plants. Process b Not New Soilless farming, company offici als pointed out, is not new, having been discovered in 1859 and perfected in 1865 by German and Dutch scientists. Its possibilities In commercial fields, however, were not realized until some 15 years ago when Dr. W. F. Gericke began experimenting. As a result of his efforts, three commercial units now are in operation—one at Montebello, another at Mecca, Calif., and the third, here. Labor costs are one third below those for soil operation, fertilization is 25 to 35 per cent less and water costs are materially lower. "We can completely control the diet of the plants by this process, giving them proper chemicals and minerals when needed and producing them during the 'dark period' of the year when other greenhouses do not" attempt production," Mr. Brundin said. Japan's 1940 census, just reported, shows the empire's population to be 105,226,000. an increase of 7,529,000 since 1935 and 14,830,000 since 1930.

Bendheim, temporary superintendent of the Arizona state hospital, announced" yesterday ac- of resignations of five ceptance attaches. Their resignations, which were among 170 tendered the nonpolitical board of directors, were offered in compliance with an ultimatum of he board that all employees at the hospital should resign. Only "about a dozen or so" of those resignations will be accepted, the doctor said, and action was taken yesterday only on five. They included the positions of supervisor of men personnel; night watchman, chief engineer, bookkeeper, matron and dentist. Names of those who lost their jobs were not given by Dr. Bendheim, who said such action might jeopardize their opportunities of re-employment. Two persons were named, however, to replace discharged employees. They are Dr. L. B. Stallcup, Phoenix dental surgeon, and Mrs. Lena Bowling, who will be matron. Dr. Stallcup was the hospital dentist several years ago, and Mrs. Bowling, a graduate of a local hospital nursing school, has been associated with the Pibneer's Home in Prescott. •Dr. Bendheim was not available las night, but names of he new ap- pointees'were given by Dr. Jere- Sale Of Shtpj* To Eire WASHINGTON, June 2-(A.
