TWELVE THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., MONDAY, AUGUST 14, 1939. JAPS CLAM VICTORIES Say Soviet-Mongol Forces Repulsed In Series Of Clashes. TOKYO, Aug. 14 (JP).~A Japanese army communique issued today in Hsinking, Manchoukuo, said Soviet-Mongol forces were repulsed in, a series of brisk clashes last week on the border between Japanese-dominated Manchoukuo and Russian-protected Outer Mongolia. The communique, published here by Domei, Japanese news agency, said the sporadic fighting started Monday when 500 enemy troops attacked Japanese positions near the junction of the Khalka and Khor- sten rivers, about 200 miles east of Lake Bor. This attack and another the following day by a force of 1,000 Mongolians was reported repulsed, the attackers leaving 2SO dead atter hand-to-hand fighting. Japanese anti-aircraft guns downed five of 30 planes which raided Japanese lines Thursday in the vicinity of the border town of Halunar- shari, 65 miles east of the river junction, the communique said. Thirteen of 70 Soviet-Mongol air raiders were reported shot down in a Saturday raid in the same area, theater of fighting since a dispute over the location of the bordsr flared May 11. Four Marylanders Drowned Sunday By The AffKoclnted Pro** The search for relief from weekend high temperatures sent four Marylanders to their death in Maryland waters yesterday. Samuel Ipsaro, 25, of Baltimore, drowned in the Severn river off Riggs Point after rescuing a 12- year-old child who had drifted into deep water on an inflated inner tube. Ipsaro, police said, brought the child to safety, then swam back for'the inner tube, which had been abandoned. He apparently became exhausted and drowned before help could reach him. The body was not immediately recovered. The Wicomico river at Mt. Vernon Beach near Salisbury was the scene of a double tragedy. Daniel Moss and Charles B. Ames, Jr., both of Princess Anne, drowned when they stepped into deep water. Ames' body was recovered shortly and attempts were made to revive him. Moss' body was not located. J. Hayes McCauley, 28, Elkton. drowned in Elk river when seized •with cramps. "Breadwinners" Called To Jobs HARRISBURG, Pa., Aug. 14, (/P). — Eight hundred unemployed "breadwinners" in Pennsylvania were called to jobs today under the state's new "work-or-get-off-re- II ef" program. Forty-seven projects sponsored by municipalities, governmental agencies and institutions—but not of the type that could be handled "by W.P.A., P.W.A. or private enterprise—were set up as a part of the state's effort to get something: lor its money. Eventually the commonwealth expects to put approximately 200.000 able-bodied relief recipients to work under the plan—created by an act of the last legislature, Republican-controlled, which requires em- ployables receiving direct relief to take a job if one can be found. As the program began its first week of actual operation, Howard L. Russell, state secretary of public assistance, reported Pennsylvania's relief population had mounted to a four-year high—S20.464 persons." The cost of providing for these needy reached $1,091,171 in the first week of August, he said. School house painting, landscaping, 'ditch clearing, weed cutting and road repairing compromise most of the first projects for the "work for relief" system.

Acted Suspiciously Chief of Police Andy M. WelHver of Reno said he was informed this man had been "acting suspiciously" at Feruley, and had inquired yesterday morning at a Fernley garage, "has anything happened?" The streamliner, speeding westward at 50 to 60 miles an hour piled up about 250 miles east of Reno. The Diesel-power cars on the crack limited, which was on its regularly scheduled 39 Vz hour run from Chicago to San Francisco, carried across the steel bridge by their own momentum, but the derailed baggage car lurched out of control and dragged most of the other cars in a wild toppel from the tracks. . Some of the cars struck into the bridge, causing it to collapse inr.o the river 15 to 20 feet below. Six of the cars crashed after it in a deafening roar followed by the eerie cries of the dying and injured which sent those able to move into a desperate rescue search. Out of the ghastly scene, where twisted bodies were trapped and many of the injured lay helpless beside the wreckage, arose tales of heroism on the part of several and stout courage and lack of panic on the part of all the survivors. There was the story of the stewardess, a registered nurse, who, injured and nearly knocked out, administered to the needs of the more seriously injured until she collapsed unconscious. A Pennsylvania professor was credited by fellow passengers with saving the lives of many who might have bled to death except for his help. Of the 149 persons aboard the flier, 20 were known dead, and more than 114 were injured, some of them critically. Tells of Horror „ The horror and the heroism of the night were graphically told by A. C. Munger, Omaha attorney, who, riding in one of the rear cars, escaped unhurt. "Many of the victims," he related, "were literally torn to pieces, with hands, feet or arms cut off and their bodies otherwise mutilated." "I had just gone to bed and was lying in my berth awake," he said. "Suddenly there was a violent bump, apparently part of the train leaving the track. This was followed by a succession of bumps and swerving as the cars started piling up in the creek bed. "As soon as the movement and noise stopped, uninjured persons ran out into the dark and started breaking glass in the car windows to get the living out. "It was a terribly lonely spot. We had to tear up articles in the cars to build bonfires for light, because the power supply was put out of commission. "it was an incredible sight to ee that big train piled up like matchwood. The steel bridge across which the engine jolted was iterally torn to shreds." Like others of the survivors, Munger paid high tribute to the courage of Thelma Ristvedt, of Chi- ;aga, stewardess and the only reg- stered nurse aboard, who administered to the injured despite a 'terrific blow on the head." "She was practically out on her feet," said Munger, "but she kept trying to help those worse hurt than herself. Finally, she collapsed on the ground, unable to talk, her face smeared with blood. "Even then, she tried to indicate what to do until she temporarily lost consciousness." E. F. Hecox, veteran engineer aboard the crack flier, ran and stumbled about a mile to the nearest phone to spread the alarm which, brought medical aid rushing to the scene. "As soon us I had the train stopped, I jumped out and ran back," he told Joseph R. Jackson, of the Reno Evening Gazette. "There was no breeze, and the dust had gathered in a great cloud. There were no lights, and I couldn't see a single living person. I could hear the screams and moans of the dying and injured. "I turned and ran for Harney, which I knew was a little more than a. mile away. I must have fallen down 20 times on the way, Then I called all the doctors and nurses I could, telling them to hurry. "With the Harney section crew I made my way back to the wreck, and we did what we could. It seemed like an eternity before the first relief train got here." Hecox declared they found "positive evidence that somebody had deliberately wrecked the train." "Whoever did it placed tumbleweed so I couldn't see it, but that wouldn't have made any difference. The train was going 60 miles an hour, and even if I had seen the rail out of place I couldn't have stopped it. However, had the rail been disconnected any other place in the canyon, this terrible tragedy would have been averted. As it was, the dining car was rocking and caught the superstructure of the bridge, and the wreck resulted." All available aid was summoned from Carlin and Klko, N'ev,, ami four special trains were rushed to the location. Passengers were warm in iheir praise of Dr. E. A. Betts, Pennsylvania State College professor who, though badly brnised himself, •%-ork- 'Enemy' Troops Launch Attack On Capital In Big Maneuvers Twenty-Three Thousand Men Arrayed For Four-Day Mock Battle; Objective Same As In Civil War Battles. MANASSAS, Va., Aug. 14, (5»).— An "invading" army with high- speed tanks and combat cars deployed across old Civil War battlefields today to strike at the nation's nearby capital in a furious but imaginary war. Twenty-three thousand men were arrayed in a 50,000 acre arena for the four-day mock battle, part of the greatest peacetime maneuvers in American army history. Three-fourths of the troops were in the defending "Blue" army — guardsmen of the 2Sth division (Pennsylvania) and the 29th Division (Virginia. Maryland and the District of Columbia.) 'The smaller force of invaders—a "Black" army of regulars —• was strengthened by the latest engines of war, geared to strike swiftly over roads and fields where the grandfathers of many of the men fought with sword and musket in 1861-1862. The objective was the same as in the Civil War battles around. Manassas. Like the Confederates, the invading "Black" army sought to break through to Washington. The "Blue" army of guardsmen had orders to stand it off. The two armies commanded an area from Gainesville and Manassas in northeastern Virginia to Occoquan creek 10 miles to the south east. But the four-day fight, which climaxes z training program set-up in 1934. was hedged by rules to safeguard life and property. Before the battle, every round of ammunition for rifle, machine gun or artillery was inspected to guard against live shells. No bayonets were permitted, and foot troops had orders to surrender immediately if a tank came within 100 yards. The possibility of a tank crashing through underbrush and running over concealed men unaccustomed to the battle wagon's high speeds was too great. There were regulations, too. to protect the rolling farm lands. Corn fields were "out of bounds;" livestock were considered immovable obstacles; wood lots were not to be damaged, and fences had to be repaired. Unlike any wartime engagement, damage officers followed the troops to replace or pay for any "ruin." Throughout the night both armies had their men in the field under little shelter tents, rifles stacked and artillery in' place. National Guard anti-aircraft regiments—the 213th of Pennsylvania and the 260th of Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia—protected the railreads at Manassas and Gainesville. The "Black" army needed no such protection, for v it was presumed that it had lander! from a battle fleet at Quantico The Third Corps maneuvers opened a vast war game that extended to Plattsburg f N. Y-, whre the First and Second Corps—the rest of the First army—were working out a similar battle problem. Witnessing the fight here were military representatives of a dozen nations, including Great Britain, Germany, Japan, and China. ed swiftly and efficiently to save the lives of several Avho might otherwise have bled to death. His first word to interviewers, however, was praise for fellow passengers'. "Never have I seen a more courageous display of nerve and. coolness by the other passengers," he said. "I spent the night applying tourniquets—30 of them—and helping as much as I could. Every friend I had on the train was instantly killed." The doctor, head of the college's department of -education and psychology, was enroute to a lecture engagement at Alameda. Calif. He lost all his clothes and luggage in the wreck. Said Mrs. R. Wornum of London, England: "You should be proud that you are an American after the courageous and intelligent behavior of those in the wreck. The stewardess, stewards, crew, and especially the men passengers, handled the situation marvelously. Dr. Betts was undoubedly the hero of the situation. He worked unceasingly throughout the night, helping in every way he possibly could." As an anti-climax the dining car of the rescue train caught lire en- route to Reno. Outside of more shock to nervous passengers, no damage resulted. With the bridge out and about 1.000 feet of its own track torn up, Southern Pacific re-routed its traffic over the nearby Western Pacific. Southern Pacific officials said they were unable to estimate liow soon they could restore their service to normal. Assistant Division Superintendent Foley estimated damage to the train itself at more than $500,000. . The man "with both ears off" wanted for questioning about the disaster was described as 35 years old and weighing 135 pounds. The last train to use the tracks prior to the crash crossed the bridge shortly after 6 P. M.—only four hours before. Southern Pacific officials said track electric contacts operating block signals had not been broken, and there was no warning that anything was wrong with the rails, indicating the person or persons perpetrating the terror had planned deliberately and carefully. Two crowbars found near the scene indicated, officials said, that more than one person was involved in the plot. Engineer E. F. Hecox said green tumbleweed covered the spot where the rail had been moved and that he felt the track give way as his power car passed over. The train was due in Oakland, Calif., yesterday morning. Listed as dead were the following- W. G. Jensen, 53 Leroy St., New York City. Katherine E. Kurz, Chicago. Helen Henry, Oakland, Calif. Eleanor D. Martin, Oak Park, 111. Myrtle Kobosky, Eland, Wis.

SIXTEEN HURT 1 ACCIDENTS (Continued from Page 1) Oak Hill avenue; John Eves, 21, Fountain Head Heights, and Alvin Drury, Washington Square, were in the one car and received cuts and gashes about the face. Stuby, Ray Schroyer, 19, Baltimore, and Charles Barker, 20, Baltimore, were reported in the other car. While these six were receiving treatment, a group of six others, injured in a crash near Leitersburg, was admitted for treatment. Among them were Roy Sipes, Mercersburg, and several members of his family, and Win. Patterson, also a Pennsylvanian. All suffered minor cuts and bruises and were later dismissed. Negro Injured. Winifield Banks, 19; colored, this city, was seriously injured early Sunday morning when a sharp, four- inch automobile door handle broke off into his side. Banks, police said, had alighted from his own car and was struck by a north-bound machine operated on Jonathan street by Edward G. Zimmer, 21, Roessner avenue. Zimmer was charged with failing to stop and render assistance. Banks was taken to the Washington County Hospital for the removal of the door handle. The sharp handle entered Banks' body somewhat in the manner of a fish hook and it required the strong arms of several physicians to remove it. One of the hard pulling physicians had his glasses broken when the handle suddenly broke loose from Banks' body. MAN INJURED IN FALL OFF BRIDGE When he fell, leaped or was thrown 44 feet into tbe Potomac river from the Hancock bridge early Sunday morning Benjamin Francis Frock, 33, of Berkeley Springs, was seriously injured. Frock was found laying in IS inches of water in an unconscious condition by Karl Stotler, who was preparing to go fishing. Frock was about 15 feet upstream from the bridge and about 10 feet from tbe W. Va. shore. Rushed to the Washington County Hospital, an examination disclosed Frock has a brain concussion, severe cuts about the head and bruises about the body. Sheriff's officers, who with Officer Norwood Apple are conducting an investigation, are of the opinion Frock was thrown from the bridge. They said he could not have fallen and landed 15 feet upstream and he did not go in from the bank becnuse there were no foot marks. Officers further explained that Frock's clothes were badly torn, indicating he might have participated in a fight. The injured man was still in a dazed condition last night ami be was not questioned. Investigators learned that Frock was with two Washington, D. C., men in Rorkoloy Springs enrly Saturday night. They have been unable to trace his whereabouts from 8 o'cloc. Saturday night until 7 o'clock Sunday morning when ho was found in the water. ISOLATIONIST 6 AMERICANS AMONG 14 TO DIEM CRASH (Continued trom Pagw 1) a crane on a drydock in the harbor. The plane broke in two. Part of it fell ashore, and the other half plunged into the water. The steel drydock, on Ilha das Cobras (Cobra Island), is about 23 feet high and about 1,100 feet from the airport. Planes normally taxi on the water after alighting until they are close enough to the passenger landing float to be towed in by rowboat. The plane was descending just before dark. But the weather was clear and a slight wind was considered not sufficient to have caused any difficulty. Crash Victim* Pan American announced that the Three American passengers killed were: Robert Landman, 195 Broadway, New York City. Prof. •. James Rogers, Yale University, New Haven, Conn., and Henrie May Eddy, Gainesville, Fla. Three of the four members of the crew who died also were Americans. They were: Capt A. G. Person, pilot, of Miami, a veteran of 1,000,000 miles flown for Pan American. Capt. George King, Co-pilot, of Miami, and Russell Jenkins, radio operator. The fourth member of the crew was the steward, Julio Trujillo. The only persons of the 16 passengers and crew aboard who were saved were Oswaldo Hirth, a German engineer, who suffered a broken leg and shock, and Mario Lyra, a Brazilian, who was cut and bruised. Launches from the Brazilian navy arsenal pxit out and rescued them. They'were taken first to the navy hospital and then to another hospital. The other seven passengers, all dead, were announced as follows: Pablo Levin, an Argentine. Anton Ommuiidesen, traffic representative of Panair do Brazil, Pan American subsidiary. E. Valensa, a Belgian exporter of diamonds from Brazil. Evaristo Miranda, Brazilian. Edgard Oliveria, Brazilian. Alberto Oliveira Santos, Bi'azilian and Lucila Oliveira Santos, his wife. The first three boarded the plane at Bahia, Brazil, while Ommunde- sen and Miranda took the plane at Recife, Brazil. The plane was a "Baby Clipper" that left Port of Spain, Trinidad, Friday after connecting with a huge four-motored Clipper from Miami. The crew made the entire flight from Florida to Brazil, changing planes at Port of Spain. Person and King left Miami on Wednesday in charge of a big four- motored Clipper, and at Port of Spain transferred to the smaller, twin-engined craft to continue down the East Coast of South America, making numerous stops. Both pilots resided here. Person is a veteran of 1,000,000 or more miles with Pan American Airways, having joined the organization 10 years ago. King has flown, the company's planes for six years and for a time was in the California-to-China trans - Pacific service. The plane, gliding to a landing at dusk, was close to water when it crashed into a corner of the dry- dock on Ilha das Cobras (Cobra Island) in the harbor. As the plane broke in two, some bodies were thrown from the cabin to the ground. Others were crushed inside. Mario Lyra, one of the two ittir- vivors, in an interview at her hospital bed, said: "I could see the plane was about to crash because it began to come down very rapidly. There seemed to be some trouble with the motor. I tried to get my parachute but it was too late. We were dropping too fast. Then there was a crash. I remember nothing after that. 1 do not know whether they pulled me out of the plane or whether I fell out." Maxwell J. Rice, president of Pauair do Brazil, said, "although the cause of the accident has not yet been determined something must have happed to the plane. It was comparatively new. Capt. Person was a World war pilot and instructor in the American army. He has been with Pan American Airways ten years and had an excellent record." Panair do Brazil, which is affiliated with Pan American, issued a statement recalling that the crash was its first grave accident in nine years' operation. Some of the bodies that were quickly recovered were so battered and mangled that identification was difficult. Darkness made the search for others difficult; Republic Steel Thinks Their Jobs Should Be Forfeited. PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 14.—Republic Steel Corporation asked the U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals today to rule that strikers who commit acts of lawlessness have- forfeited all right to return to their jobs. The request was made in a brief supplementing arguments by Re- pubilcan attorneys; August 7 on Republic's petition asking that the court set aside an order of the National Labor Relations board which directed the company to reinstate 5,000 Ohio workers involved in the "little steel strikes". The court took the case under advisement after the arguments last Monday and gave the company permission to file the supplemental brief. '"An examination of the evidence," the brief said, "will establish beyond question that it will not effectuate the policies of the (Wagner) Act to order the wholesale arid indiscriminate reinstatement of strikers not named in the complaint who according to the evidence have been guilty of a multitude of almost unbelievable acts of lawless conduct and violence." "The strikers," it was added, "sought to make it impossible for Republic to conduct its business, obstructed the XL S. mails, tried to prevent the operation of interstate railroads and shot at airplanes attempting to ca:-ry food to practically imprisoned employes." The Labor Relations Board contends the strikes resulted from unfair labor practices by the company. K, Ore.. Aug. 14 (./p). An Oregoniau asked the postmaster not to deliver any mail to him.

H., Aug. 14, (IP). —Heartened by a "well done" from their commander-in-chief, navy salvagers set about preparing hoisting gear today for a second lifting of the $4,000,000 sunken submarine Squalus which, struck a hitherto uncharted mud bank while being towed beneath the v surface. A rolling sea prevented divers, from going below yesterday, but it failed to keep President Roosevelt, on a vacation'cruise of New England and Canadian waters aboard the cruiser Tuscaloosa, from obtaining a first hand account of the herculean task the navy performed Saturday in lifting the submersible with her 26 dead 80 feet oft the sea floor. Admiral Cyrus W. Co.le, commandant of the Portsmouth navy yard and in charge of salvage operations, visited the President for an hour and a half aboard the Tusacaloosa., anchored less than a half-mile from the submerged Squalus from which 33 were rescued when she sank 240 feet during a test dive in May. After the Tuscaloosa proceeded northeastward, Admiral Cole received a radio message: "Am greatly pleased with the efficiency and arduous service performed by the officers and men of your unit. Well done." v. Towed v stet'n first and slanted upward, the Squalus went aground the uncharted pinnacle, about 400 yards short of where the navy intended to begin the second of three lifts which are destined to bring her to the surface in shallow water.
