(ASSOCIATED PRESS WIREPHOTO) Seen By An American Reporter Inspection Irritates Italians 43-Minute Examination by Men from British Cruiser in Mediterranean Is Example of Latest Goad By G. C. JORDAN Of the Associated Press Rome (AP) This correspondent has recently seen the British method of halting and searching Mediterranean ships in contraband control, a practise which infuriates the Italians and has put a chronic strain on Rome's relations with the British-French Allies. A British sailor told me the incident I witnessed was a typical one. I was on the Italian liner Egeo bound from Naples for Piraeus, Greece. We were at dinner when we noted the ship had come to a standstill. I heard someone say, "It's a warship. They've stopped us." A Sicilian army officer, returning to his post on the Island of Rhodes, rushed from tire room. I followed him. Gradually other passengers did likewise. Dark Shape Circles Ship Our ship was standing quite still. We had no idea where we were except that we should have been near Greece. The ship's crew had thrown spotlights on big Italian flags painted on the sides of the vessel. At first it was hard to see anything but finally we made out lights blinking at sta. As our eyes became accustomed to darkness we made out a huge form moving silently around our bow. It was n. British warship talking with us in code with her twinkling lights. The huge shape moved around us slowly. A searchlight was turned on us. The warship made a complete circle, examining us minutely with her searchlight. By the time she returned to our starboard side a large rowboat reached us. A ladder was thrown over our side and three British officers and a red-haired sailor climbed up. The British saluted the Egeo's officers smartly. The latter did not return the salute. The passengers, mostly Italians bound for Rhodes, stood by silently on the narrow deck. The officers mounted to the captain's cabin on the upper deck. The red-haired sailor kept guard outside. A temporary ribbon around his hat hid the name of his ship. He asked if there were any Americans aboard and I told him I was an American. He wanted a cigaret saying they had been at sea so long they were out of American cigar-ets. His ship was a light cruiser, one of those which had been hunting the German pocket battleship formerly named the Deutschland. After Christmas the cruiser had been transferred from the North sea to the Mediterranean. I asked him if the Italians ever made trouble about having their ships searched and he said no, that only one crew had raised objections to being searched. They were Greeks. Next Suspect Sighted He said he had cowed them with his pistol. He said he had to practise shooting with a pistol for six months before being sent as a guard with the boarding officers. If the cargo of an examined ship was suspicious, he said, they took the vessel to Malta. That did not happen often. This warship had halted and examined as many as 15 ships in one day. Just then we saw the lights of another ship passing a few miles away and the boatswain in the row Don't Suffer GAS PAINS Wn Ruby let tones writes, " suffered so from itvtizrstion that at times the gas pressure trould almost dime me dor hie.

"We will be at it until three o'clock in the morning," I heard a voice in the rowboat say. Soon the officers returned from their inspection of our manifest and the passengers' passports. They saluted, climbed down the rope ladder into the boat and were rowed away. The whole business had taken exactly 45 . minutes.
