TWO ARMED BOATS
SUNK BY GERMANS
British Admit One Ship
Sent Down By Nazi
Aerial Torpedoes
i LONDON, Feb. 10.— (/P) —Great
Britain acknowledged tonight the
B-ping of two armed trawlers—one
bv aerial torpedoes—with the loss of
22 lives in Germany’s latest air as
sault yesterday on North Sea ship
ping. Four other vessels were badly
damaged.
Germany claimed xne raiders sanit
two British “patrol” boats and sank
or destroyed six other vessels.
The admiralty announced the
trawlers Robert Bowen, 290 tons,
and Fort Royal, 351 tons, were
sunk. Four officers and 18 men went
down with the ships.
Supplementing this announce
ment. informed sources said the
Fort Royal was struck by torpedoes
dumped by the Nazi airmen after
bombs failed to find their mark.
Skipper John Moore of the trawler
Lowdoek brought his crippled vessel
into port with a story of a similar
attack. Moore said the Germans
rained bombs about his craft with
out result.
"Finally,” he continued, “they let
go with a torpedo which struck us
a glancing blow and nearly lifted
US out of the water.”
• Three of us were on the bridge
and I grabbed a rifle and let the
first of the two attackers have 20
shots. We must have hit one for it
made off, leaving the other to fight
it out with us.”
One Nazi plane was shot down in
the raids and the British claimed
two others had been damaged.
The extent of the attack was made
plain with the arrival of the dam
aged merchantmen Cliftonia, 3,106
tons, Boston Trader, 371 tons, and
the Dredger Foremost, 306 tons.
Two of the Dredger’s crew were lost
when a lifeboat capsized after she
had been bombed.
Today the admiralty described as
without foundation a report from
Tonder, Denmark, that a British
warplane dropped four bombs today
on Sylt, German island base in the
North Sea.

the hundreds and slicked away al
most the entire top floor of the St.
Nicholas hotel.
Finally, it dropped heavily into a
negro residential section along the
muddy Flint river and mowed a
death-pocked path through flimsy
houses before it moved on into sul
len, rainy skies to the north and
east, leaving a swath of destruction
roughly 15 blocks long and four
wide.
God sent was the hour of the
storm’s arrival because only a hand
ful of the town’s 15,000 population
was in the battered downtown area.
Twelve hours later a Saturday aft
ernoon crowd of thousands would
have been in the wind’s path.
Bodies recovered late this after
noon included those of 17 negroes,
most of them killed in their homes
near the river, and one white wom
an, Dora Belle Shiver, 32, crushed
in her home on Oglethorpe avenue.
City Manager C. Q. Wright said
he understood three other white
persons and another negro had been
killed, making a death list of 22, but
he had been unable to verify this
report late tonight.
A crew of more than 500 rescue
workers cleared narrow lanes for
ambulances through debris-choked
downtown streets and searched for
the bodies of possible additional vic
tims in the wreckage.
The city’s single, 50-bed hospital
swiftly was swamped by the first
flood of injured and the high school
gymnasium, the First Methodist
church, the city auditorium and a
negro high school auditorium were
converted hastily into emergency
hospitals. Tonight about 200 of the
more seriously injured had been
put into beds in these places, but
only a few were reported critically
injured. An estimated 300 others re
ceived emergency treatment in hos
pitals or homes for minor injuries.
Five Million Dollars
G. C. Hamrick, income tax inspec
tor for the internal revenue bureau,
figured property loss at about $5,
000,000. Some' city officials placed
damage between $5,000,000 and $6,
000,000, and Wright said he feared
the toll would be $8,000,000 to $9,
000,000, including stocks.
In the path of the wind were
downtown telegraph and telephone
offices and disruption of these
lines left the town virtually cut off
for several hours. As emergency
crews brought communications
hack into play and the news of the
tragedy spread, relief forces moved
Swiftly.
Governor E. D. Rivers and sev
eral aides quickly drove down the
170 miles from Atlanta. Safety Com
missioner Lon Sullivan moved in
w'th state troopers to keep neces
sar:-' traffic moving and to bar the
Path of curious thousands.
Four national guard companies,
totaling about 300 men, were order
ed in from nearby Cordele, Valdosta,
Thomasville and Bain bridge to
preserve order and assist in rescue
work within the stricken city.
Dozens of doctors and nurses
came by train and plane from Ma
con, Atlanta and other cities under
direction of the Bed Cross. That
organization ordered its medical di
rector, Dr. William de Kleine, to
the scene from Washington after
an appeal from L. R. Ferrell, chair
man of the Albany chapter. Stone
Crane and Mrs. Beatrice Vines,
disaster relief workers also were
sent in by the Red Cross.
Cots and Blankets
Hundreds of cots and blankets
were hurried in from the army’s
big base at Fort Benning, Ga., and
Francis Shurling of the national
emergency council said that body
would make an immediate survey
to determine what further federal
aid might be required.
Tourist and commercial traffic
was routed around the city, which
was impassable to automobiles in
the storm zone. Trains, bound to
and from Florida, were held up as
much as two hours while tracks
were cleared.
Mrs. Kirk Wagenseller, of Wil
mington, received a wire from her
mother, Mrs. T. V. Thompson, who
resided in the Gordon hotel, one of
the several downtown buildings
most severely damaged, saying that
she escaped injury.
RUSSIAN DRIVES
FAIL, FINNS SAY
(Continued From Page One)
added 72 Russian tanks in two days
to the scrapheap of modern weap
ons launched against Finland's in
dependence. Unofficial reports say
more than 650 Red army tanks
have been smashed or captured
since the war began on November
30 and more than 330 planes
downed.
Equally important, foreign mili
tary observers said, is the fact
that foreign pursuit planes actual
ly are beginning to arrive for the
defense of Finland.
Finnish flying men have estimat
ed that with 300 modern fighting
planes they can demoralize the
Russian bombing squadrons with
the same effectiveness with which
their phantom ski battalions have
deployed against the motorized di
visions of the Red army.
The Finnish artillery, meanwhile,
has played an unsung but increas
ingly important role in keeping the
Russian troops where they were at
the beginning of the struggle.
With great economy of ammuni
tion, the Finnish batteries have
been silencing Soviet big guns, a
few every day. Finnish officers say
this precision is due to a new and
improved artillery chart devised by
General Vilho Nenonen, in com
mand of Finnish artillery.
He is a former minister of de
fense and a brilliant mathematician
whose achievements in the science
of ballistics are recognized inter
nationally.
With the Nenonen chart, Finnish
gunners say they can accomplish
with one shell what ordinarily
takes three.
Repairing Planes
In the air the Finns are skill
fully repairing and putting into
use many captured Soviet planes.
An official announcement tonight
gave this account of the Finnish
airmen’s achievements at sea:
"Eight Russian warships and one
submarine sunk since the start of
the war. and others damaged.”
Finland’s story of the tremen
dous fighting on the Mannerheim
Line battlefields was combined to
day with the announcement that
the high command had confirmed
the death of a Soviet divisional
commander, one Colonel Borisoff,
in a battle northeast of Lake La
doga on Thursday. The army’s
communique said he was in com
mand of the sleventh Russian di
vision. On this front, moreover,
the Finns announced these Russian
losses:
800 killed.
60 trucks and two tanks destroy
ed.
"A large quantity” of infantry
weapons captured.

N. C. PATROLMAN
ASKED TO RESIGN
Officer Was Charged With
‘Irregularity’ In Fee
Collections
RALEIGH, Feb. 10.—VP)—W. J.
Spain, assistant commissioner of
revenue, said today the recent res
ignation of State Highway Patrol
man J. L. Hunter, of Smithfield,
followed a hearing on charges of
“irregularities in the collection of
arrest fees.”
Spain said he and R. R. Mc
Laughlin, director of the motor
vehicle bureau, conducted the hear
ing about 10 days ago and “the
hearing left enough question in our
own minds concerning the matter
that the patrolman was requested
by Major John T. Armstrong to
resign."
Lieut. Arthur T. Moore of Fay
etteville and Sgt. V. R. Mallard con
ducted an investigation, McLaugh
lin said, “after rumors began circu
lating in Smithfield.”
Hunter was charged specifically
with making arrests and with hav
ing local officers swear out war
rants and then collecting arrest
fees from the officer after defen
dants were convicted in court,
Spain said. Patrolmen are not al
lowed to collect fees for making
arrests, though many local law en
forcement officers of the state are
compensated in that way.
Both the patrol and the motor
vehicle bureau are divisions of the
state department of revenue.

Maxwell Denies He Authorized
Assessing9 Of N. C, Patrolmen
RALEIGH, Feb. 10.— L® —Reve
nue Commissioner A. J. Maxwell,
3. candidate for governor, issued a
statement from Asheville last night
saying he had not authorized the
sssessment of any employe of the
iepartment of revenue for his cam
paign.
Said Maxwell:
“I have not only not authorized
assessment of any employe of the
iepartment of revenue for my cam
paign, but have discouraged contri
butions and insisted that if contri
butions are voluntarily made from
the meager salaries paid they
should be in purely nominal sums.
“I have naturally appreciated the
loyalty and friendship of members
Df my organization, but would not
tolerate the use of pressure in any
form.”
Both Maxwell and the command
ing officer of the highway patrol,
Major John T. Armstrong, said that
suggestions for contributions hac
been made without Maxwell’s
knowledge. No attempt, Armstrong
said, was made to make the contri
butions compulsory.
Meanwhile Governor Hoey said
he planned to investigate the re
ports that the highway patrolmen
had been told by their commanding
officer that regular monthly contri
butions to Maxwell’s campaign fund
“would be appreciated."
Armstrong said that the idea of
contributions of $1 a month from
each of the 170 patrolmen was ad
vanced in Charlotte January 13 at
an informal gathering of a few pa
trol officers.
Said Armstrong:
“Several of us in Charlotte were
discussing campaign funds for Mr.
Maxwell. I told them if they want
ed to give anything they could vol
untarily. But it was not compul
sory nor was the suggestion com
ing from Mr. Maxwell.
"Someone suggested that they do
nate $1 a month, and I told them
that I knew he would appreciate
any amount they wanted to give.”

Electrical Research
Offers New Wonders
By GEORGE H. BUCHER
President, Westinghouse Elec, and
Mfg. Co.
The year has seen important
strides in the electrical field, and in
the electrification of industry. Many
industrial plants, including several
large steel mills, are producing bet
ter, cheaper products because of
the 1939 electrical equipment that
operates and controls them.
Throughout the country, electrical
systems are giving more reliable
service because of lightning re
search and the introduction of self
protecting “lightning-tested” trans
formers.
The new fluorescent lamps, intro
duce 3 at the New York World’s
Fair, are rapidly finding their way
into homes, factories, business estab
lishments and offices, bringing bet
ter and more efficient light. An
other kind of electrically produced
radiation—ultraviolet—found major
use during the year in the tenderi
zation of beef. Westinghouse engi
neers experimentally introduced a
new kind of heating and' air-condi
tioning system in tin company’s
plant at Emeryville, California. By
reversing the principle of air-cool
ing, the engineers use'the cool out
door air to heat the building in the
winter time; a system that may
have wide application throughout
the country. During the year seve
ral new alleys of considerable im
portance have been produced. One,
“K-42-B”, containing nickel, cobalt,
chromium, titanium, manganese,
silicon, carbon and iron, may prove
spectacularly useful at high te.mpe
ratures. It is stronger at 100 de
grees than carbon steel at room
temperature.
We are fortunate to live in a coun
try where the national emphasis is
so effectively centered on construc
tion and better living, and where
the output of the country’s labora
tories and factories raises the stand
ard of living instead of destroying
it. The business of the Westing
house company has been very good
in 1939, and we expect that the pre
sent high level will be maintained
into 1940.

EX-REPORTER CHANGES
RED INK TO BLACK
NEW YORK— (JP) —A one-time
newspaper man, who has replaced
the red ink on an airline’s ledgers
with black, credits a good part of
his success as an executive to his
training as a reporter.
“A man must pay attention to
details,” says Sigmund Janas, presi
dent of Canadian Colonial Airways,
operating between New York and
Montreal.
"A reporter scrutinezes the small
est item on a police boltter. It may
develop into a big news story. An
airline. executive must watch the
little things which may spell the
difference between profit and loss.
When we discontinued serving after
noon tea aloft, and complaints be
gan coming in, we started it again
in a hurry.”
Janas is a graduate of both the
University of California and the
University of San Francisco He
worked as a reporter in Sacramento
and San Francisco, and is a former
chief deputy for the California su
perintendent of banks.
ALLIES TO PRESS
WAR TO THE END
British, French Leaders
Say Victory Will Bring
‘Real Peace’
By J. C. STARK
LONDON, Feb. 10.—(iP)—Britain
and France, reiterating their deter
mination to crush forever German
threats to their concept of world
supremacy, issued a blunt new dec
laration against a "patched up”
peace today as they watched with
interest President Roosevelt’s latest
diplomatic moves in the European
situation.
Addressing a public gathering at
Bristol, Air Minister Sir Kingsley
Wood sternly emphasized the Allies’
intention to fight on to “a real peace,
not a patched up pact that would
leave Europe once again the sub
ject of assault and violation.”
“We and our allies,” he declared,
“are determined to secure the world
against the possibility of the repe
tition of atrocities and inhumani
ties which have repelled and shock
ed mankind.”
Almost simultaneously a semi-of
ficial note was issued in Paris warn
ing that the "constant peril” of Ger
many must be crushed "before the
world to come takes shape by agree
ment.”
The note said France would wel
come U. S. Undersecretary of State
Sumner Welles on his forthcoming
European faet-finding tour, ordered
by President Roosevelt, but com
mented coolly on the state depart
ment’s announcement of informal
diplomatic conversations with neu
trals with a view to reducing arma
ments and promoting “sound and
lasting peace for all nations.”
"England and France,” the Paris
note said, "are now seeking by vic
tory of their aims to obtain ‘ma
! terial and positive guarantees’ of
peace without which no stable or
ganization of international relations
| could be established ...”

in them.
The soundings among neutral na
tions on post-war problems, Hull
emphasized, are entirely distinct
from the roving assignment Sum
ner Welles, undersecretary of state,
will undertake in Europe at the re
quest of President Roosevelt.
Welles will leave on February 17
cor visits to Rome, Berlin, Paris and
London “for the purpose of advis
ing the President and the secretary
of state as to present conditions in
Europe." He will go first to Rome
but has not yet announced the or
der in which he will visit the capi
tals of the belligerent nations.
As to the discussions on post-war
problems, Secretary Hull pointed
out that the United States has con
sistently attempted to keep alive
basic ideas relating to a stable in
ternational relationship.
The keystones of the policies, he
said, are the progressive reduction
of armaments, and the adoption of a
liberal economic policy as the only
means of avoiding autarchy and
economic totalitarianism.
The United States, Hull declared,
hoped to see every nation that is
not already doing so adopt that
program so that when a peace con
ference does meet there will exist
a definite understanding, and even
commitments.

TOKYO, Feb. 11.—(Sunday)'—
—Japan celebrated today as the
2600th anniversary of the founda*
tion of the empire and establish*
ment of the world’s oldest dynasty,
which Japanese revere as “the line
unbroken for ages eternal.”
Emperor Hirohito, 121th of the
line, was the heart of deeply relig*
ious and fervently patriotic observ*
ances in which 70,000,000 Japanese
in the empire stretching from Kam*
chaika to the equator turned their
faces toward the palace in Tokyo,
(From Vatican city Pope Piue
sent the emperor an anniversary
message expressing hope for an
end to Japan’s war with China in
these words: “We are asking God
that external hostilities may cease
and the illustrious Japanese people
may again enjoy the splendor of
true greatness.”)
JAPANESE ELEPHANTS
STAMP ON BRITISH LION
PEIPING, North China— UP) —
Elephants are the latest recruits in
Japan’s anti-British campaign in
North China.
Three performing elephants in
a traveling Japanese circus are win
ning wide attention with their
tricks. Shown the Japanese flag,
and then the flag of “New China,”
the elephants stand on their hind
legs and raise their trunks in sa
lute.
When a tattered Union Jack is
waved in front of them, the ele
phants emit angry bellows. For the
performance, they are rewarded
with peanuts.
Persons who have witnessed both
the circus tricks and spontane
ous” anti-British demonstrations by
Chinese crowds say there is much
smiilarity between the two shows.
But the human demonstrators are
given 20 to 30 cents each, which is
more than "peanuts” to the aver
age impoverished Chinese coolie.
