S. R Orocr and a German submarine disclosrd today that a report from a British patrol plane put th«- destroyer on thf trail of th*- U-boat. It also flatly contradicted the German claim that the Grt^-r started dumping depth bombs on the submarine more than two hours before the U-bont commander loosed his first torpedo. The navy stated that the torpedo was fired first, and eight minutes lat^r the first depth charge* went over the Order's side The report on the encounter in the North Atlantic was made public last night by Chairman Walsh <D-mass) of the senate naval com rn It tee. which requested the Information from Navy SecreUry Knox. It was submitted In the form of a statement by Admiral Harold R. Stark, chief of naval operations, who accompanied It with answers to a series of questions propounded by the committee with reference to the incident. The matter-of-fact recital Rave this running story of the encounter: On Sept, 4 the Oreer waa plowing along en route to Iceland with U. 8. mall, pa&senfrers and some freight. She was 175 mite* southwest of the island and '•directly In the path of communication between American ports and Iceland"—a lane Which President Roosevelt specifically ordered the Havy on July 7 to keep "free of all hostile actlvHy or threat thereof." — U-Baal It Mile* Ahead of Ship At 1:40 a. m. a British plane notified the Oreer that a submarine was submerged 10 miles ahead directly on UM course the destroyer waa following. The Oreer immediately crowded on speed and tlgsagged her way to the location reported. At 0:20, five minute* after reaching the vicinity, the destroyer's underwater sound detection equipment picked up the propeller beat of the submerged U-boat mad started to trail it, reporting the submarine's position.

Wills suggested that the caucus be comprised of the national committee, Republican congressmen and governors, former President Herbert Hoover. Republican nominees for president and leading candidates for the nomination last year. ''Principles and policies need be threshed out with renunciation of personal rancor on all sides." said Wills. "This might bring about some painful situation, but we are in a painful condition." The governor quotod a New York Herald Tribune editorial advocating party leadership which would "support the President wholeheartedly In every sound measure of his foreign policy and criticize constructively and forcibly his errors at home." "There ia a divided coua-^-l which finds only individual expression, which as such lacks authority to give needed support to sound measures of foreign policy." Wills said. with her orders, that IB. to give out information but' not to attack." No further assistance, meanwhile, came from the patrol plane.

Government purchases of cheese »nd evaporated and dried milk are being made for shipment to Great Britain under the lend-lease program. .The department reported today that three-fourths of the 110 city markets which regularly report have r*ise^pr|ces_either to producers or consumers, or both, during the past M days. The October retail average of 25 representative cities was 13.74 centa a quart for home delivered milk. This was an increase of .16 cent per quart over the September average, and about 1.75 cents a quart, or 14 per cent, over October average of last year. The highest price reported was 17 cents at Charles ton HS.G.-The lowest was 11 cents in a number of midwestern cities. The sharp competition for milk Is reflected, the department said, in the fact that during the first eight months of this year the production of 'evaporated milk and American Cheddar cheese—two products needed in large quantities for shipment to Britain—increased 14 and 18.4 per cent, respectively, over the corresponding output, of 1MO. t.he plant to -oprnt/ 1 u-hirh supp'v th" rity ivith the rio<s-nt<wn ypriion <*i!h ele^tri- ri!y.

AFL PROTESTS TO FORD WASHINGTON — <AP> — The American Federation of Labor has asked the Ford Motor company to erase checking off CIO union dues among employes in 14 Ford feeder plants until a labor relations boart! election determines whether the feeder plant workers want to be represented by the CIO or the AFL. Herbert Thatcher. R member of the AFL's legal staff, said he made the request nearly two weeks ago after the board decided that Ford's closed shop contract with CIO's United Auto Workers union Jn Its main plant at River Rouge. Mich.. was not a bar to the holding of an election among the feeder plant em- ployes. On October 2. the board ordered an election held within 30 days, the arrangements to be handled by the board's Detroit regional office. The feeder plants are located In several small communities just outside the Detroit area, and according to labor board records, employs an aggregate of 2.527 workers. Thatcher 'Said the AFL was not challenging the Ford-CIO closed shop agreement at the main plant where CIO won exclusive bargaining for some 83,000 workers.
