Walter Bender, executive officer in charge, said the board's reporf probably would be made to the War Department within the "next two or three days." Witnesses said the big plane had just, cleared the field when one of the two motors sounded as if it were "cutting-out." The pilot, Second Lieutenant Homer M, Mackay, apparently in an effort to bring the ship down safely, put it into steep glide toward the waters of Back River, a short distance away. The plane, however, -went into a dive and crashed, bursting into flames almost immediately. Witnesses said there was an explosion as the plane hit the ground followed by a series of six lesser explosions as crash truck and amublance crews sped to the scene. It was not until nearly two hours later that the bodies could be removed from the wreckage. Heard Explosion Witnesses said they heard an explosion, as the plane struck the ground and a series of about six explosions during the next few min- iates. Crash truck and ambulance crews raced to the scene, but were rendered helpless in a rescue attempt by the flames and intense heat. The bodies could not be removed until about two hours later. A board of inquiry was appointed and immediately started an investigation. Army officials list the dead as follows: Second Lieutenant Homer M. Mackay, native of Lansing,. Mich., not married. Second Lieutenant Thomas L. Butner, Burnsville, N. C.. not married. Sergeant William Morgan, of Norton, Va., married, two children. Sergeant Raymond Shelley, Oakdale, La., married, one son.

Praises President Last night, McNutt set the young Democrats to cheering wildly with a speech praising Mr. Roosevelt as the "greatest living example of Democratic liberalism" and outlining a program of what he called modern liberalism. Whether McNutt had any hint of the President's message to the young .Democrats before he prepar ed his address several days ago has not been disclosed. In any event, he aligned himself, as he did in another address on foreign policy at Cleveland recently, with major administration pronouncements. He proposed expansion of the Social Security System to provide for public health and medical care, a step which the President also has advocated, and urged vigilant protection of "those civil liberties which are the life blood of our Democratic system." Friends of McNutt have been urging hia nomination as a "compromise'.' candidate tb bring together the party factions which have been warring over the administration and its policies.

Ten Pontoons used In all. ten big pontoons, with 2 combined lifting power of 760 tons were called into play in an effort t avert a repetition of the wild "light-headed" heave which thrus the bow of the $4,000,000 craft mo mentarily above water and then plunged It back to the bottom, 24( feet down, during the first hoisting attempt just a month ago, when seven pontoons were used. Under a last-minute change ir plans, the salvage crews re-arrang ed so that the partially floodec bow could be lifted 60 feet off the ocean floor, while the completelj flooded stern would be pulled up a full SO feet toward the surface. At this slanted angle the Nav; hoped to tow the Squalus stern firs toward shallower water. The less unwieldy bow thus would ground first, leaving the stern still suspend ed about 20 feet above the bottom If successful, Navy officers said the} would repeat this process three times, until the craft and her crew of 26 dead were brought to the sur face in sheltered water.

The conference began -after ,a luncheon given in honor of Ciano, Premier Mussolini's representative and son-in-law. Ciano was late leaving Salzburg and it was believed the delay was caused by a last-minute telephone talk with II Duce. Ciano drove to Hitler's rnoun- ;ain retreat after leaving the scene of preliminary talks with German Foreign Minister Joachim von Rib- Dentrop. Both German and Italian spokesmen remained tight-lipped on the subjects of the Ciano-Ribbentrop ,alks, which opened yesterday. The silence apparently was out of deference to today's meeting with Hiter when, it was taken for granted, all important decisions would be made. One German official, however, said: "You need not expect any sensational .announcement. They are just reviewing the general European situation. An Italian spokesman asserted: 'Whatever steps take place, you may be sure that Rome and Berin will see eye to eye."

Cars got tuck in the mud that year and here was the usual quota of fist Ights, but the regular program was arried out.

The picnic is advertised by signs on cars, posters and window cards. It is announced in advance in newspapers of the county nnd over the Frederick and Hagerstown radio stations.

Y., Aug. 12 (ff) —President Roosevelt completed today his job of passing judgement on legislation and ordered out a White House car ' to take' him ; to New York for the start of "a seafarer's vacation. All of the hundreds of bills rushed through Congress in its closing days either had been signed or rejected, White House ' officials announced, and the President was looking forward to a period* of carefree relaxation on the new cruiser Tuscaloose and perhaps a bit of- fishing. ' ' In the seclusion of the study of his Hyde Park home, he received a last minute report on foreign affairs from the State Department. Mr. Roosevelt said at a press conference yesterday that be saw no need at present of summoning Congress back to work-early. But, he added, if it! became reasonably certain there was Agoing to be a war in Europe or the Far. East, he probably would call a special session immediately. Enactment of neutrality legislation would be its one big job. His cruise route was indefinite, depending partially on the weather encountered in northeastern waters. Mr. Roosevelt had arranged to go ashore only at Campobello, NBAV Brunswick, where his mother has a summer home and where Mr. and Mrs. Franklin'. D. Roosevelt, Jr., his son and daughter-in-law, are vacationing. He expected to return to Washington late this month. PROBE ATTACK ON NEGROES CRANBURY, N. J.. Aug. 12 (/P).

In a «signed statement to Lieutenant LaForge, Mrs. Higgins, who has three sons, 5, 7, and 11 years old, described what happened after that. "At 1:30 A. M., Elizabeth and I showed the way to the Emmets home to th© house guests who stayed later than Mr. Emmet," Mrs. Higgins told police. "We got back at 2 A. M., and saw Sprague's car in front of the house. We went into the house but Larry was not in sight. His hat was on the desk in the living room. Elizabeth called to him and he came downstairs. Larry asked Elizabeth if it was all off with him and she said it was. He brought the gun out and I told him to put it away. "Elizabeth ran upstairs and he ran after her. I called the state police and told them there was a man in my house drunk and in a jealous rage. I asked them to please come over; then I faked a telephone call and tried to get Elizabeth out of the room. I told her there was a telegram regardin her children, and I told her I had called the police. The troopers came and went upstairs I followed them to the door of my bedroom. There are twin beds to the left and as the troopers opened the door we saw Larry and Elizabeth on the far bed. As we entered there were bullets flying. Larry shot at Elizabeth first, then the trooper went after him. There were a lot more shots fired and the trooper grappled with him." Mrs. Carolyn was hit by three bullets Avhich just missed the wall of her stomach. The trooper. John Busch, was hit in the left arm. Then Sprague turned the gun on himself and fired four bullets into his heart.

The dash for further speed marks ended at 10:05' p. m. (H.S.T.) last night at the suggestion of Art Pillsbury, Western representative of the American Automobile Association contest board. Jenkins and his relief driver, Rex Mays of Los Angel«§, both w«re groggy from the monoxide fume's, which first swirled into the cockpit of the Utah speed-seeker's racer at 6:55 p. m., when a hood fastening loosened to allow the gas to enter from a leak into the left exhaust manifold. In the lap immediately preceding the 2,713th mile, Jenkins lost' control of his machine as salt chewed into ruts by the long pounding, smashed a row of course boundary stakes and two of the racer's four headlamps. He rolled into the pit Pillsbury urged him to quit "Ab, I don't think it's worth it." he said. "I think we'd better call it oft" "I think you're right," Jenkins answered. "I got what I wanted. That is all for 1039. After all, we just wanted those records of Eyston's. (Four endurance, marks formerly held by Capt. G. E. T. Eyston of England). When the fumes first poured into the cockpit Jenkins, then at the wheel, managed to get to the pit. where he was pulled from the machine. Mays immediately took over but pulled in after one lap when the gas affected him. Mechanics repaired Hie defects hastily, but the ;as began seeping in again. • Jenkins and Mays said they "just couldn't see" after first experiencing the fumes.
