Driver Leaps From Wheel and Escapes in Fog Contraband Is Believed Part of Shipment of S. S. Newfoundland, Sailing From Liverpool. New Haven, Oct 29 (IP) Scotch whiskey in kegs valued at between Sloo.OuO and $150,000 which had been landed by motor boat from a vessel anchored in Long Island Sound, off the Branford Shore, was seized last night by narcotic agents v ho -were on watch for a cargo of entirely different character. The whiskey was on a truck which was being driven from a wharf at Short Beach bound for this city. The driver, who first tried to evade the officers, escaped after he had brought the vehicle to a standstill In the heavy fog which has cloaked the landing and loading of the cargo on the truck. On Watch For Draffs The officers making the seizure were Henry L. O'Malley and Thomas A. Ker.ofick of the narcotic squad. They had gone to Short Beach, which is a village, in Branford at the mouth of the East Haven river, to watch for the possible landing of a consignment of Illicit drugs. A thick fog drove in from Long Island Sound hiding the shore line completely, but at the same time amplifying sounds to an extraordi nary degree. As the agents stood watching they heard the chugging of a motor boat but could not lo cate it nor the place at which it tied up. They heard sounds of the unloading of something from the iiioior boat and fixed the location as a wharf In the East Haven river. some distance from the inn kept by Nellie Green Talmadge, a place of many landings of contraband liquors.

Traynor Explains Vasques Funeral Services 7'he position Joseph Vasques was considered to hold with reference to his religion determined the type of funeral service accorded him, and no thought was given to a reported sacrilege which in fact was not an offense against the church, Rev. Matthew J. Traynor, pastor of St. Mary's church declared this morning in a discussion of sensational angles to yesterday's obsequies when police were called to preserve order. Friends of the deceased man to day reiterated a claim that, be cause a brother of Vasques had a crucifix removed from his hands after ho died, a funeral ma.ss was denied him. This, they claim, they were told is a sacrilege which makes is impossible for the deceased per son concerned to be given full re ligious rites. Both Rev. Father Traynor and friends of the deceased man who ar ranged for the funeral denied hav ing requested police protection at tho funeral and both expressed re gret that a squad of five officers at tended the service in response to a report that trouble was brewing and an outbreak was feared. Chief of Police William C. Hart refused to day to disclose the source of the complaint or to say why Sergeants W. 1. McCue, P. J. O'Mara, T. J. Feency and G. C. KUinger, and Pa trolman Thomas C, Dolan were sent hurriedly to the church just before tho funeral services began at 2:00 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Kev. Father Traynor, while ex pressing a wish that nothing more be said about the incident, made it plain today that the mere act of removing a crucifix from the hands of a. man directly after his death Is no sacrilege and is not an offense against the Catholic church. Friends of Vasques claim the last rites of the church were adminis tered to the dying man Tuesday morning and that he passed away with a crucifix clasped in his hands. The crucifix was later removed. They say Salvatore Salata, president of an Italian society, asked that a requiem mass be sung and that this rite was refused on the ground that a sac rilege had been committed in the removal of the cross. An afternoon service was agreed upon, but no ef fort was made to have it in the form of a mass since the Italians, being Catholics, realized this is con trary to the regulations of the I church, P. Puzzo as spokesman for Vasques' friends stated today.

Dr. William F. Russell, dean of teachers' col lege, Columbia university, delivered the principal address on "Symp toms of Good and Bad Teaching." Dr. Russell based his address on personal observations made in a high school where he was engaged in an educational survey. He detailed to the teachers ex actly what, in his opinion, consti tuted bad methods, placing them under the general head of short answers Indicating lack of pupil in terest. He attributed such answers to the instructors' failure to genu inely interest the class in the sub ject at hand.

Rio Janeiro, Brazil, Oct. 2S (IP) More than 300 persons, mnnv of them women and children, were st'U missing today from the ill-fated Italian liner Prinoipess.i Mafalda, which sank off the Brazilian coast Tuesday night in the midst of scenes of suffering and panic. Through the veil of confusion and contradictory advices from the scene of the disaster, came more definite reports today when the Dutch liner Alhena came into port carrying 531 survivors and the French liner Formosa with 353 sur vivors. The French steamer Mos ella landed 30 pnssengers and 22 members of the .ship's crew at Bahia yesterday, thus accounting for 03G of tho 1,2'iG persons aboard the stricken Italian steamer.

Thrilling Stories Told Through the medley of stories, some of them almost incoherent, poured out by the exhausted surviv ors, came stories of heroism, of panic and of suffering and terror in the darkness of Tuesday night. The cause of the disaster was ob scured in conflicting stories told by those snatched from the jaws of death. Some declared that the ship had been torn by an explosion while others said that the ship simply had foundered in from four to five hours when watr swept into her by a break in a screw shaft hold. Some Tell of Sharks Rome, still haunted by the terror of the night, told of seeing sharks tearing at the bodies of victims, but other survivors scoffed at this de claring they had seen no sharks. Captain Simon Gull, veteran com mander of the sunken vessel, went down with the ship. That much ap peared certain although reports as to hoi. he died varied.

It was one of the most spec I tacular tires in this city In several months, and had it broken out at night when its discovery would not have been prompt enough to per mit the firemen to do battle on somewhat even terms, fire depart ment officials believe it would have, been one of the most destructive fires in several years.

Excitement prevailed throughout tho city this afternoon when the fire siren sounded for three alarms. Two alarms came in for a fire on Gov ernor street, one following the other so closely that the belief prevailed that a general alarm was being turned in. A few minutes later an alarm sounded for a fire in tho Sweeney block on Main street. The heat from a brick incinera tor apparently set fire to the north wall of the Menus garage, which had only one brick wall, on the east side. The west wall, separating tho build ing from the Central garage, was of wood and brick, and the roof was of wood, covered by tar paper. A wooden partition divided tho garage into stalls, in which were tho Smith and Bronstein automobiles. The for mer was a coupe and tho latter a coach. In the latter were several rolls of cloth, the owner being in the merchandise distributing busi ness. The entire top of the coach was burned away and the cloth that escaped the flames was soaked by water.

Brookhart announced today he would introduce his measure as soon as congress reconvenes and expects a vote on It. The Iowa farm bloc member agrees the president was right when he said $150,000,000 provided in the bill veoted last session for starting the equalisation system, is not enough. Cotton alone would require $500,000,000 for adequate financing of its exportable surplus. The total sum needed would be $1, 500, 000,000 he thinks.
