THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., FRIDAY, AUGUST 18, 1939. THREE SqualusNears End Of Voyage Submarine Towed Into Shallow Water; Will Be Lifted Next. Portsmouth, N. H., Aug. 18 (/P).— The U. S. Squalus neared the end last night of probably the strangest voyage in submarine history after being twice lifted and towed from the 240-foot depth to which she sank on May 23. The second successful "blowing and towing" operation, which started at 9:30 A. M. (EST) and extended far beyond dark, left the flooded submarine within approximately 100 feet of the surface, not far from sheltering land, and gave promise that the bodies of the 26 men who died aboard her S7 days ago might be released from the s-ea within another two weeks. By that time, naval officials said they hoped to complete the less dangerous but more detailed job of bringing the- Squalus to the surface—perhaps pumping dry some of the flooded compartments—and placing the craft in the Portsmouth Navy Yard dry dock for reconditioning as a ship of the line. The- custom of taking baths apparently began in warm and temperate zones, where people learned the comforting effects of baths sooner thaa did their northern neighbors. • WARNER BROS.

An adventurous romance teeming with the drama of life and love under the overhead suu is to be seen in "Lady of the Tropics," now "showing at the Maryland Theatre. Two of filmdom's most glamorous stars, Robert Taylor and the eagerly-awaited Hedy Lamarr. making her second motion picture appearance, play the lovers in the dramatic story. Any doubts that might have been held because of Miss Lamarr's overnight jump to fame with her American debut in "Algiers" will be dispelled by "Lady of the Tropics." Not only is she^ more beautiful than ever, but she plays the difficult, many-sided role of Manou with such a rare combination of sympathy and dramatic force that her position as a star Is brilliantly affirmed. Robert Taylor, cast as Bill Carey, young American who falls madly in love with the gorgeous Manon, ;v!rfs even more stature to his high standing as an actor. He achieves a deft balance of humor, plausibility and drama in his characterization. HENRY'S HAS ACTION FILM Little Tough Guys Starred In Adventurous Movie. Universal's popular kid gang, the Little Tough Guys, who first appeared in "Little Tough Guy" and later scored in "Little Tough Guys in Society," have their latest, most exciting screen roles in 'Code of the Streets." the gripping, human drama which opened Thursday at Henry's Air Conditioned Theatre where it is showing last times today. The film demonstrates that big- city slum life can breed juvenile heroism as well as hoodlums, for this time the Little Tough Guys are seen working on the side of the law—instead of breaking it—by aiding Police Lieutenant Harry Carey in tracking down a murderer, forcing a confession and saving an innocent nia from the electric chair. The Little Tough Guys' performances are especially commendable, as is the work of Harry Carey, Frankie Thomas. James McCallion, Leon Ames, Paul Fix. Marc Lawrence and others in the cast.

The problem of resuming control of the county roads by the counties was discussed yesterday afternoon at a conference between the County Commissioners of Frederick and Washington counties. The parley was held in Frederick. While Frederick county is compelled by law to resume maintenance of lateral roads, the Frederick Commissioners are still undecided on the question of new road construction, it was stated. No decision will be made by the Washington County Commissioners until after a conference with -the State Roads Commission in. Baltimore next week. At the conference' in Frederick yesterday, the advantages and disadvantages of county control were discussed at length but no definite decision reached. Decision must be made by September 1 on the question of county control. If the Commissioners decide not to take over the roads they will remain under the jurisdiction of the State !>;>ads Commission as at present-' There is fe"5-hx^r.o be a sentiment for the resumption of county control although those opposed to the plan are pointing out the necessity of a huge expenditure for the purchase of equipment and the setting up of a road organization. Many contend that the operation under the state has been very satisfactory. The issue of expense for equipment, if the counties are to do the road maintaining after September 1, is one which must be met. New construction under contract would utilize contractor's equipment, while the building of low cost WPA roads would necessitate the furnishing of equipment by the county. The State Roads Commission has asked the counties to decide by September 1 what procedure they will take. The State board wants the matter settled before its fiscal year ends September 30. Problems of Frederick and Washington counties, while similar as to the type of soil for roads, were found to be different in other respects, it was reported after the conference. Frederick county has about GOO miles of dirt roads, while Washington county, jt was stated, has about 350 miles. A roads board of eight members, including the Commissioners, was created for Frederick county by the last Legislature, and is now in operation. Washington county places the road administration with its Commissioners. Talked Over Relief The subject of relief administration was also discussed by the two groups, and was found to be one of increasing concern to both. The Washington county officials who were present were W. C. Mangans, president; John Ankeney, Harry T. Brewer and Allen Seibert, members of the board; James Black, clerk to the board, and William Hetzer, a WPA supervisor of Williamsport. Frederick county officials present were George V. Arnold, president; Charles G. Geisbert and U. Grant Hooper, members of the board, and Archley R. Moles worth, clerk. Following the conference, the officials of the two counties had dinner at the Francis Scott Key Hotel.

Father Weeps For Slain Girl Protest Sent By Celanese Workers CUMBERLAND, Md!, Aug. 18 (£>). | Textile workers involved in a dispute with the Celanese Corporation, controlled by British interests, informed the British Government the attitude of the corporation toward American labor was imperiling friendly relations between the United States and Great Britain. Celanese Local No. 1874, Textile Workers Union of Arne'rica, forwarded an 800-word letter to the British Ambassador to the United States, Lord Lothian, charging that "profit hungry" British interests were flouting American labor laws. The letter asserted the Celanese management: "Arrogantly refused to meet the United States conciliator, who after days of vain waiting, returned to Washington unable to report progress." Grief-stricken, the Rev. Walter Dworecki (center) is assisted .from the Camden, N. J., morgue after identifying the body of a slain girl as that of his daughter, Wanda, 17. The strangled body was found near a lovers' lane, in a patch of weeds. Shown above is a scene from the new serial, "Daredevils of the Red Circle." which opens today at the Colonial Theatre.
