SALVAGE OF £1,000,000 SUNKEN ENERGY TUBE FEARED IMPOSSIBLE Mile-Long Gulf Stream Experimental Apparatus Sinks in 4,000 Feet of Water Off Havana After Cables Break. By the Associated Press. HAVANA, June 26.—Doubt was ex pressed today that the 1,000.000 tube which broke its moorings and sank to the bottom of the ocean off Matanzas yesterday could be salvaged. The tube, built by Prof. Georges Claude, French scientist, in an effort to revolutionize industry by putting the Gulf Stream to work, was a mile long enough for a young boy to wane through erect. When the valves on the compressed air tanks at the extreme end of the tube were opened, th" dead weight of the huge contraption of corrugated steel snapped the inch-thick cables holding EDISON GIVEN MEDAL Justice Roberts Presents Inventor With Trophy of Recognition.

FEAR HUNGARY MAY RECALL HAPSBURGS Little Entente Opposes Prince Otto’s Returp at An nual Conference. Bv Radio to Th« Star and tha Chicago Daily Nawa. Copyright, 19S0. VIENNA. Austria, June 26. —Two complex political problems are a git* ting the annual conference of the little en tente. which has opened in the Czecho slovak town of Stroske Pleso. The three countries concerned are represented by their foreign ministers, Dr. V. Marinko vitch of Jugoslavia, M. Mironcscu of Roumanla and Edward Benesof Czecho slovakia. The discussions are dominated by the intense legitimist propaganda of Hung ary toward a restoration of Prince Otto to the Hapsburg throne. The little en tente was formed in order to keep in transigent Hungary squeezed within th* frontiers of the treaty of Trianon, and the countries of the little entente were the prime movers in preventing the last Emporer, Karl, from getting the crown his son now wants. Thus the three en tente countries are seriously alarmed by the present royalist agitation, which is bound to be associated with the ques tion of the rectification of Hungary's frontiers. A big Legitimist meeting is sched uled for Sunday. Count O. Bethlen, prime minister of Hungary, has just re turned to Budapest, coming, it is said, on a Trieste train, apparently from Italy. Prince Otto’s mother, the for mer Empress Zita, has gone to Spain, but Otto himself is now in Belgium and is reported to be planning his first formal visits to European courts as soon as he has finished his school ex aminations. Plan Fight by Concession. The little entente plans to oppose a Hungarian restoration by a concilia tory offer. M. Benes is prepared to tender Hungary a partnership in the proposed Danubian economic union if the Legitimists quiet down. "Tire little entente Is not aggressive and the doors of collaboration are al ways open,” said M. Benes in an in terview. ' The possibility of better re lations with Hungary has improved as economic unity of Central Europe has been strengthened. We are construct ing our policies without rancor. We do not want to provoke Hungary in any way.” Asked regarding the Legitimists, Benes said that the entente is clearly opposed to restoration because it would be illegal. He reiterated the entente view that the status quo must be maintained and that the frontiers cannot be changed. The second question alarming the conference is the fear that King Carol of Rumania may be inclined to take the foreign policy of his country in his own hands and turn to Italy instead of France for political support. Carol likes the Fascists and has repeatedly spoken of the close ties of blood, race and temperament between Rumanians and Italians. Poland's Attitude Feared. Italy is supporting Prince Otto’s venture and Carol has also said that he would like Otto to return provided that a restoration would not change the frontiers. The Jugoslavs are alarmed at the Device to Ferret Illegal Broadcasts Put in Operation . Department of Commerce Office to Hunt Rum and Race Stations. Ipeclai Dispatch to The Star. BALTIMORE. June 26.—A device de signed especially to ferret out Illegal radio broadcasting stations of rum run j ners and bookmakers and containing a powerful receiver f.nd various intricate measuring devices was put Into sendee at Fort McHenry yesterday by the radio division of the Department of Com merce. This outfit, said to be the most complete of Its kind in the country, was designed by radio experts at the fort whose offices adjoin those of the prohi bition department. While the Department of Commerce has nothing to do with the actual en forcement of the dry laws, its radio division becomes interested when illegal radio stations are operated or when one which is legally licensed engages in sending messages for the purpose of violating the laws. L. C. Herndon, local radio supervisor, explained that, while his department would attempt to locate any radio sta tions which might be operating in the interests of bootleggers, rum runners and bookmakers, this was only a very small part of the function of his bureau. Its real purpose, he explained, was to see that all vessels are properly equipped with radio, that all stations' keep to the channel on which they are assigned by the Government to operate and that all stations, especially those in the crowded entertainment band, do not use more power than they are per mitted by license. visit to Poland of Dino Grandi.

Marinkovltch will ask his col leagues to join in a protest to Bul gario over the continuing Macedonian , outrages. These, according to Marin kovitch, are being indirectly inspired by Italy as a further item to embarrass Jugoslavia. All the members of the entente eager ly advocate Aristide Briand’s United States of Europe scheme, this being an 1 instrument calculated to maintain the ■ present frontiers and intrench the French group against the Italians. | The formal agenda of the confer ence does net mention these details, but contents itself with the economic . repprochment of the three countries 1 concerned, Austria.

LANSBURGH & BRO 7th, Bth and E So.—FAMOUS FOR QUALITY SINCE 1860-N»Uon»I 9800 Answers the Question Concerning the Prices of Merchandise 7 HERE has been a great deal of discussion in the newspapers and “among ourselves” about the drop in commodity pricei. And ow, that there may be no false impressions, we are answering the question so that every person may clearly understand our position with regard to such conditions as they may arise. ✓ It is true, the prices of certain basic commodities have been low ered recently. Silks, cottons, woolens and other fabrics, for example, can be bought for less money than in many years. But, bear in mind, please, the drop in prices does not affect all lines of merchandise. You have probably learned from experience, or hearsay, that for nearly seventy years this store has given its patrons every price advan tage obtained in the open markets. The present situation is no exception , We have met every lowering of market price as it occurred . That is why customers have bought here “on faith.” They feel secure in buying on that basis. They know that this store has kept and will keep faith with them. Lansburgh & Bro ,;r jf ; iPfe ittfevv Jn* I NUROTEX I New... !n Knickers. * It won’t muss or crush like ordinary wash fabrics.
