may come in.
Registers At Beach Hotel
Durham, the sheriff’s depart
ment said, registered at the swan
ky Casablanca Hotel in Miami
Beach.
He called on a Miami Beach
lawyer, Milton Rubin, of No. 1
Lincoln Road, the sheriff’s depart
ment added.
He told Rubin that the Monroe
County sheriff’s department had
illegally impounded his car and
that he wanted Rubin’s aid in get
ting the car.
“He doesn’t ven own a car,”
a deputy here said.
Two Stories Told
The sheriff’s department said it
had gotten two stories concerning
Durham’s dealings with Rubin.
1. That he clipped Rubin for SBOO
and Rubin’s car.
2. That he clipped Rubin for SSO
and Rubin’s car.
That, said the sheriff’s depart
ment, is where the grand larceny

ply.
The department here also said
that Durham had served two years
in the state penetentiary for auto
theft.

TODAY’S
STOCK MARKET
NEW YORK uPl—Mining shares
were active and higher today in
an irregular stock market.
Attention to the mining section
was accompanied by plans for gov
ernment stockpiling and higher
prices for lead and zinc.
The key railroad division was
unchanged to lower as were the
rubbers, airlines, motion pictures,
ard distillers.
Aircrafts were higher while other
divisions .were steady to mixed.
Among better active issues were
Boeing, Douglas Aircraft, Phelps
Dodge, Kennecott Copper, Home
stake Mining, Standard Oil (NJ),
Youngstown Sheet & Tube, Gen
eral Motors and American Woolen.
Lower were Packard, Sears Roe
buck,‘Santa Fe, Southern Pacific,
and 20th Century-Fox.
SABOTAGE IS

in perfect calm, because we knew
rescue ships were at hand. We
could see' them steaming toward
ua.”
Two doctors aboard the troop
ship estimated that some 20 of the
survivors received minor injuries
or had to be treated for the effects
of smoke or water.
Many of the soldiers came
ashore draped only in towels from
the rescue ships.
Calm Sea Aided
The rescue was made possible
by an extraordinarily calm sea.
Men swam directly from the burn
ing ship to rescue ships nearby.
When an Italian ship tossed lines
to swimming passengers, an Ital
ian crewman aid he heard the
swimmers say “after you, George”
and the reply, “oh, no, after you,
Cecil.”
The captain of the Norwegian
freighter Hemsefvell said that in
all his life at sea he had never
seen such calm and “everything
went off as though the passengers
were going through only a lifeboat
drill.”
Passengers who had taken to the
water, eyewitnesses said, acted
like bathers on a seaside holiday,
laughing and joking and amusing
the children.
About 7.4 million U. S. farmers
belong to farmer cooperatives.

‘Joe Must Go’ Club
Formed In Wise.
SAUK CITY, Wis UP—The “Joe
Must Go” Club, spearheaded by
eight editors and writers from Wis
consin weekly newspaper today be
gan the task of getting out about
one out of every five of the state’s
eligible voters to sign petitions
aimed at the recall of Sen. Mc-
Carthy (R-Wis).
Senatorial Candidate
(Continued from Page One)
state, is neglecting the little fellow
in his legislative activities.
“I want to see that there is no
conflict between the interests of
the clients of your State Senator
and of the people he is supposed
to represent I don’t see how a
man can receive tremendous legal
fees from the large corporations
and not give them fuller considera
tion in the legislature, to the de
triment of the people who elected
him,” Gresham said.
Gresham, a graduate of Har
vard College and the University of
Florida law school, also said to
day that he is of the opinion that
Monroe County should have a State
Senator to represent it, and pledg
ed himself to work to that end.
In commenting on the controver
sial question of alleged lack of
Monroe County representation in
the Senate, Gresham said that “I
will give Monroe County represen
tation equal to that I would give
to the other three counties in the
district. I will show no partiality
to the mainland and would spend
a great amount of time in Monroe
County working with the people
here and ascertaining your pro
blems.”
Gresham said further that a one
year stint as a research assistant
of the Florida Supreme Court has
given him “ a good understanding
of the technical and practical pro
blems of legislation.”
A combat infantryman in Eu
rope in World War 11, Gresham is
an active member of the American
Legion.
