NEW BRITAIN DAILY HERALD, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1927. FOUR ESCAPE IN BATTLEflH SEA Italian Steamer Aground on Sicilian Rocks Penzance. Eng., Oct. :S P il.-rotc efforts by llfesavers after a perilous all-night vigil to rescue lven seamen left clinging to the rigging of the Italian steamer l;-tbo which went ashore on the Srilly Is lands yesterday, ivere only partially successful, four of the men being aved at dawn. These four had Jumped Into the mrhulent waters just as soon as daylight broke and were picked up ! a lifeboat which had l 'ii stand nt by all nieht 'vaittntr for daylight ;i'id for an opportunity to approach he vessel in a raging sea. One man was found dead of ex- osure when the rescue boat was ble to reach the s:randed ship, which still rlunsr to the jagged rocks 'ipon which she had foundered. There was no 'race of the six other men and It Is feared that trusting 'hemselves vainly to pieces of wreckage during the night, they were swallowed up by the sea. The remainder of the crew land ed in a lifeboat last night. There were J7 in the boat of the total rew of 3 8. The Isabo sail' 1 from Montreal for Hamburg on Oct. 14. The ship went ashore on Scllly lloel! off the coast here. Heavy waves started Immediately to smash the Isabo. Life savers during the night saw men clinging to the rlg sing. and went to their rescue. Their work was hazardous and difficult owing to fog. rain, high waves and floating WTeckaee. that detached it elf from the ship. After hours of buffeting by the sas, the Isabo broke In half this morning, and the sea soon was cov ered with floating grain and wreck age. Shortly after daybreak several of the 11 men who remained aboard jumped into the water. One swam ashore, three others were rescued by a lifeboat. The boat, after landing them, returned to th. wreck and found one mil dead In the crow's nest. Fin still were missing. CHARGES CORRUPTION Counselor of Anti-Saloon League Says ' Secretary of "Damp'' Temperance j Society on Payroll of Wet Boosters j New York, Oct. 2S. Wi Nation- : wide survey conducted by the Na-j lional Episcopal church temperance j society in which 1032 Episcopal i clergymen approved modification of I 'he Volstead act was regarded todny by Orviile S. Poland, counselor to I the Ami-Saloon League, as the work i ot an organization holding only "a parasitic connection with" the Epis- : copal church and whose secretary j apparently was in the pay of the wet cause. J "If the church temperance society ! which has published a statement purporting to show that American elergvmen are two to one against prohibition had any official connec tion with the Episcopal church I should refuse to comment, upon their statement," Poland said. He declared TV. James Empring ham, who as national secretary of the society took a prohibition poll about two years ago, apparently was on the payroll of the "association against the ISth amendment." Mr. Emprlngham said he was not I and never had been on the payroll of the association named but wished he was as he could use the money." CONFERENCE OVER RADIO Springfield, Mass.. Oct. 28.

SEE FUTURE FOR GMYULERUBBER May Be Reliel From Present British Monopoly New York, Oct. 2S (UP) American-grown rubber has appeared as a new industry in ths country and a possible means of relief from the British rubber monopoly. Rubber experts today discussed the report of the United States bu reau of standards that Guayule rub ber appeared comparable to the plantation tree rubber in many re spects, on the basis of tests in Washington. Experimentation with the so-called "new" rubber is being made in many centers. Thomas A. Edison was reported to be making a study of the Guayule rubber. The gov ernment is gathering data on the plant. And two experiment stations one at Tifton. Ga.. and another in the Salt River Valley In Arizona are maintained by the Continental ! Rubber company, one of the pion- eers in the exploitation of Guayule j rubber. ' i If these experiments are success- j ful, the southern part of the United States may become one of the chief ' producing areas for the world's sup- I ply of the new rubber. j "The Guayule plant, which is i really a shrub, not only withstands j frost but requires It," George H. j Garnahan. president of the Conti-1 nental Rubber company, told the United Press. I Heretofore, almost all of the raw rubber has been obtained from plan tation trees which require tropical j climates. I Guayule rubber is used by several : manufacturers today. I "We have been using small quan- ! titles of Guayule rubber for several months." said officials of the Nor- walk Tire company at Norwork, Conn. "It actually cannot be considered a substitute for rubber. It really is just another kind of rubber which, for some uses, is better than ordi nary rubber, and for other uses, is not so good. We use it for the frictioning of fabric and in other cases where a suit rubber is desir able." Prices on the New York market showed that the current quotations of Guayule rubber were seven cents cheaper than plantation tree rub ber. Experts here speculated whether the Edison laboratories were not now working on some process of re fining or perfecting the Guayule rub ber. They expected that Henry Ford might ohiain the latest infor mation on Guayule rubber, in view of recently purchased plantation in Brazil. I Captain Marshall Field Brazilian ex pedition, has returned home with further specimens of mammals, birds and reptiles for the field mu seum. For more than a year Mr. Sanborn carried on the collection of South American species, assisted only by two native Brazilian hunters and a camp cook. Prominent in his col lection are specimens for four habi tat groups to be installed in the mu seum's hall of American mammals. There are gtiar.aeo.a wild species of Llama known as the "South Ameri can camel", swamp deer, tapirs, and giant ant-eaters. Several Brazilian red wolves, a rare long-legged spe i ies, also were bagged.
