AMERICAN SCHOONER LAW WAS
SUNK BY BOMBS
By John H. Hearley,
United Press Staff Correspondent
Rome, Feb. 16. The American
schooner Lyman M. Law went down
while flying the American flag, after
bombs of an Austrian submarine
were exploded in her hold.
"When I first saw the submarine
she was about fiye miles distant from
the Lyman M. Law," the captain de
clared. "I immediately hoisted the
American flag. The stars and stripes
were also painted plainly on the sides
of my ship.
"When a detachment of the crew
of the submarine finally boarded us
they said they were Austrians. My
crew took to the boats on instruc
tions, and, very soon after we left,
the Austrian boarding officer explod
ed bombs in the hold of the ship."

U. S. MAY SEND YARROWDALE
NOTE NOT SATISFIED
Washington, Feb. 16. The United
States may send its Yarrowdale note
to Germany regardless of press re
ports that the 72 American sailors
had been released. Up to 11:30 to
day no official confirmation of the
press reports had been received here.
The note is ready to go. Since it
contains detailed statements regard
ing treatment of German sailors,
German citizens and German prop
erty in the United States, the state
department, it was officially intimat
ed today, may feel that it should be
sent even should this government, in
the meantime, receive official word
that the Yarrowdale prisoners have
been set free.
Discussing the probability of this
government's sending the Yarrow
dale note, even though the prisoners
are released, the department frank
ly stated this government is annoyed
at the "apparently-grudging manner"
in which Germany is doing "only
what she should do" in releasing the
jailors. 1

story of her love affair and her com
ing marriage to Harold Rucavada, 19

to Chicago; Listen now to her elect
ed bridegroom: "She's no more to
me than 1,000 other, girls and I'm not
going to marry her." Now Marjorie
must find herself a much less for
tunate swain in the number of trem
bling females.
Ass't State's Att'y Rob't E. Hogan
was expected in Detroit this morning
to start the court fight there for cus
tody of the Delbridge girl, whose ca
reer has attracted considerable at
tention since the juvenile court and
her negro friends, led by "Mammy"
Camilla Jacksonjfor years her pro
tector, have battled for control over
her.
Hogan leftlast night with detec
tives and warrants, anticipating lit
tle trouble in bringing the girl back.
In Detroit, however, negro attorneys
for the girl say that the charge
against her will not permit extradi
tion, so the juvenile court authorities
are powerless.
