SALVAGE OF £1,000,000 SUNKEN

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

VIENNA. Austria, June 26. —Two
complex political problems are a git* ting

countries concerned are represented by
their foreign ministers, Dr. V. Marinko
vitch of Jugoslavia, M. Mironcscu of
Roumanla and Edward Benesof Czecho
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

The little entente plans to oppose
a Hungarian restoration by a concilia

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

economic unity of Central Europe has
been strengthened. We are construct

Answers the Question
Concerning the Prices
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.
