navy, whose body lies at the xnorge to

arrangements today to have the body
taken from the morgue and prepared

the uniform of the navy, his pockets
contained papers which led" to his par
tial identification, which was completed
early today by the visit of Betri to the
The young sailor's movements last
night will probably never be known, for
the spot where the body was found Is
an unfrequented one, seldom visited by
even the yard men. The police enter
tain no suspicion of foul play. They
believo that Esterline's death was the
result of the old story of "Jack Ashore."
and that he wandered to the yards and
was struck by a switching engine.
