VICTIM RECOVERED Chef Suffocates After Craft Is Held for Hours Be hind Falls. By the Associated Press. NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario, July 7. The body of George Stathakis, Buffalo Greek chef, who suffocated in a barrel in which he shot the Horseshoe Falls, was at an undertaker’s today awaiting claimants. In a sealed casket of oak, reinforced with steel, he took the plunge Saturday afternoon. He carried oxygen sufficient for three hours. The cask was recov ered some 16 hours later, a bit bat tered and leaky. Stathakis was still strapped to a mattress he designed as a buffer. An old turtle—sacred, he called) It—which he carried with him, was alive. No injuries were apparent. Coroner W. W. Thompson expressed the belief that Stathakis had lived six hours. The journey from the cascades, through the rapids and over the Falls occupied only 10 minutes. Stathakis re ceived a severe battering in the rapids, the craft being tossed high by the turbulent current and hurtled over rocks. The barrel was not thrown clear, but seemed to drop through the curtain be- i hind the Falls. There it was held for hours. When it did appear it was five i hours before rivermen could catch it! and tow it ashore. It weighed a ton. Stathakis, who called himself a philosopher and wrote a treatise on "The Mysterious Veil of Humanity,” took along paper and pencil to record his sensations, but did no writing in the barrel.

"Our excess imports of foreign pleas ures and culture alone, through the medium of tourist travel, gave other countries last year about $570,000,000 with which to make payments to us for merchandise or any other items they owed." Dr. Klein remarked. "While our demand for foreign goods was less than the foreign demand for our goods, our desire for their services and scenery 1 was much greater than their desire for ours.” These invisible exchanges between nations, he commented, were now get- i ting to be as important as the visible exchanges of commodities actually shipped.
