Ferry Pilots Killed
In Crash Called
'Cream of Crop'
15 Officers and Men
Were Doing Fine Job,
Official Declares
BT th* Associated Press.
LONG BEACH. Calif Jan. 20.—
The Ferry Command of the Air
Corps lost some of its finest pilots
with the deaths of 15 officers and
men in a T. W. A. transport crash
near Las Vegas. Nev., Friday night.
"They might have been the honor
roll of the command,” a high offi
cial said today. "They were doing
a hell of a fine job.”
The officer consented to be quoted
after a reporter pointed out that
Carole Lombard, another victim of
the crash, had been given the head
line play although the ferry pilots
undoubtedly were heroes. The com
mand previously had limited infor
mation regarding its flyers to their
names and home addresses.
Deaths Big Loss.
"Our men we;-e just doing their
duty—a routine job.
"All of these men were top
notchers. Their deaths are a big
loss, felt by all of us. They were
► some of our oldest crews. They were
doins a *remendof!s job.”
The officer said the men had fer
ried planes to Britain, to Canada,!
to the East Coast of the United
States ever since the service was
started July 1.
"They were eager to go anywhere,
env time—the cream of the crop.”
He said names of the pilots were
withheld a short time the night of
tne crash "until we checked and
double checked our records.” He
explained how even then one error
crept into the list.
Story of Comradeship.
It's a story of the comradeship
that exists among the pilots—and a
story’ of why First Lt. Burton K.
Voorhees is alive to ferry more
planes and Second Lt. Frederick J.
Dittman of Oakland. Calif., is not.
Awaiting arrival of transports, Lt.
Dittman remarked. "I've never been
on a stratollner. I'd like to see how j
lt goes."
"Take my seat.” Lt. Voorhees of
fered. "I've ridden them.”
Lt. Dittman did—and died.
Lt. Voorhees' name remained on |
the T. W. A passenger list. He came
on in Lt. Dittman's seat in another
plane, telephoned headquarters and |
enabled officials to correct the list
almost before it was circulated.

davit, that Justice Goldsborough
shouted at him: “Get this into your
head. I am going to try this case
and no one else.” He said the re
marks were made on the occasion 1
of the visit to the jurist’s chambers
with Edward J. Hickey, jr.. special
assistant to the Attorney General.
Mr. Maloney said in filing his affi- 1
davit that because of the personal:
bias of the judge the Government
cannot obtain a fair trial.
The affidavit asserts that Justice
Goldsborough has " a personal bias
or prejudice against the Govern
ment. of the United States in this
case.” During the course of the
conversation in chambers. Mr. Ma
loney claims, Justice Goldsborough
declared:
"I don’t give a * * * about the
Government's position." when the
lawyer had requested that the origi
nal trial date of February 2 be ad
hered to and said that no one would
be prejudiced by the delay.
Sets Wednesday.
After he had overruled the de
fense motions argued by Emil Mo
rosini, jr.. of New York, Justice
Goldsborough remarked:
•T cannot anticipate the future,
hut I know of no reason why this
case cannot be tried on Wednes
day.”
Mr. Maloney maintains that Feb
ruary 2 was set as the trial
date by Justice F. Dickinson Letts
some time ago. District Court, by
e general term order issued early
in December, directed that the jurist
presiding in Criminal Court No. 1
have charge of the assignment of
criminal cases. Justice Goldsbor
ough has been officiating there since
the fall.
Mr. Maloney asserted he has just
finished the trial before Justice
Letts in which George Hill, second
secretary of Representative Fish.
Republican, of New York, was found
guilty of perjury before the District
grand jury in its inquiry into Nazi
propaganda activities. He says that
to require him to go to trial tomor
row is “rushing" the Government
into the case.
Justice Goldsborough at yester
riav afternoon's hearing told Mr.
Maloney that, he had five clear days'
notice of the trial * tomorrow, and
that the Government, anxious for
a quick trial, has been ready to try
the case since November. The jurist
asserted from the bench that he
was not prejudiced either against
Mr. Maloney or Mr. Hickey and
declared that while he was annoyed
bv the former's conduct in his cham
bers. the conduct was "rather juve
nile.”
“The court is utterly astounded at
your filing such an affidavit,” de
clared Justice Goldsborough. and
Defense Counsel Morisini spoke up
to say that the defense had nothing
to do with setting the case and was
satisfied with Justice Goldsborough
•r any other judge.
LAS VEGAS, NEV.—GABLE BREAKS ISOLATION—Clark Gable,
husband of Carole Lombard, appeared in public for the first
time yesterday since the death of his wife in the T. W. A. plane
crash on Table Mountain. After seeing to funeral arrangements
he drove to the foothills and asked a recovery party to make a
careful search of the wreckage for Miss Lombard's wedding ring
and a ‘‘V for Victory” pin she was wearing. —A. P. Wirephoto.

BALBOA, Canal Zone. Jan. 20 —
Army headquarters announced last
night that the United States, in co
operation with the Netherlands gov
ernment, has sent air forces to the
islands of Aruba and Curacao “to
assist in protection of those v'ltally

Missing Cargo Mane
Is Hunted in Alaska
By the Associated Press.
War Department officials said last
night a search was being conducted
for a cargo plane missing in Alaska
since Saturday.
The plane took off from Ladd
Field. Alaska, for WTiite Horse.
Yukon Territory, with two other
planes. After encountering heavy
weather, two of the planes returned
to their take-off point, but the cargo
plane, after several radio contacts,
reported it was running out of fuel
and landing on a river.

(Continued From First Page t
that the question of subsidies might
produce particularly difficult prob
lems and commented: “It begins
to look to us as if we will have to
set up a sort of ‘semi-indigent’ type
of institution.”
Mr. Mason said later in answer to
Mr. Randolph that he was not pre
pared to agree definitely on a pres
ent need for 1,000 more beds.
“We are convinced, however, that
there is a need for four or five hun
dred beds and we will provide them
in some way.”
Chairman Randolph promised
early action and asked that the
Commissioners pursue their own
study.
He explained the hearing was in
tended to present “the whole pic
ture.”
Mr. Maverick said he, too. was
concerned principally with those
who could afford to pay something
for care.
He indorsed the Randolph bill in
principle and recommended:
1. The immediate building of hos
pital units providing at least 1,000
additional beds.
2. Consideration of units or addi
tions providing another 1.000 beds
and “the grant of Government sub
sidies and aid to provide hospitals.”
He said he did not think the bill
under consideration should place
restrictions on where the facilities
should be built.
Mr. Maverick admitted he would
like to see the committee “preju
diced" against hospital officials who
might press for permanent type con
struction.
"Steel is more needed for Singa
pore * * • and for killing Japs
and Nazis than it is here.
"You can deliver babies just as
well in primative surroundings if
you have plenty of hot water and
such as that.”
He urged that the committee name
a subcommittee to study and report
back on the matter within a week,
declaring:
"This is not a Gilbert and Sulli
van war. It's a real war, and we
ought to be prepared."
Health Officer George C. Ruhland
was first to testify.
He cited "a distressing shortage
of hospital beds for obstretical
cases and for children.”
Dr. Ruhland expressed agreement
with the 1.000 split in additional
beds at Gallinger and Glenn Dale
as an urgent need for the present
services of the institutions. He re
minded that provision of treatment
for paying patients was a matter
calling for decision on basic policy
as to how far government should go
in helping those in the low-income,
but not indigent, group.
Progress Made, Ruhland Says.
Dr. Ruhland said in answer to a
question from Mr. Randolph that
Washington has made progress in
public health “within the limits of
appropriations."
“We are far from-where we ought
to be,” he added.

President Pays
Tribute to
Carole Lombard
A personal tribute.to Carole Lom
bard came yesterday from President
Roosevelt in a message to her hus- !
band. Clark Gable, the Associated
Press repotted from Los Angeles.
The actress, who was en route
home after helping in a Defense
bond sale in Indianapolis when she
y.-as killed in an airplane crash, also
was praised in speeches in the
House and Senate.
“Mrs. Roosevelt and I are deeply
distressed," read the President's
message. “Carole was our friend,
our guest in happier days.
"She brought great joy to all who
knew her and to the millions who
knew her only as a great artist. She ;
gave unselfishly of her time and
talent to serve her Government in
peace and in wrar. She loved her
country.
"She is and always will be a star,
one we shall never forget nor cease
to be grateful to. Deepest sym
pathy.”
The Senate heard a brief tribute
paid by Senator Willis, Republican,
of Indiana. H° praised Miss Lom
bard as "a great actress and a loyal
citizen,” citing her sales o' more
than $2,000,000 in Defense bonds in
Indianapolis.
Representative Ludlow, Democrat,
of Indiana told the House that "In
diana and the Nation mourn." He
was permitted to insert in the Con*
gressional Record the text of the
"last speech" of the Indiana-born
motion picture star—a plea for pub
lic purchase of Defense bonds.
U-Boat Packs OffU.S. Held
Seeking Good Hunting Area
LONDON, Jan. 20 —Packs of Ger
man submarines off the North
American coast probably are making
a ‘‘reconnaissance in force" looking
for a profitable hunting ground, a
British authority declared today.
This probably explains the tor
pedoing of ships close to the United
States shore, he said.
The Germans may "have had
some wild idea" that Prime Minister
Churchill would return to Britain by
sea and may have sent out subma
rine packs to sink him, he said. But,
he added, that was doubtful because
they would not have tipped off their
position by sinking other vessels.
(Churchill flew home via Bermuda.)
This source pointed out that U
boats must prepare for a round trip
of 7,000 miles in order to operate off
the American coast and that this
limits their stay to 10 or 12 days
unless they can refuel from supply
ships, a difficult operation.
They probably passed through
North Atlantic convoy routes en
route to their hunting grounds, he
said, and thus "there's always the
chance of picking up a target',"

Wrecked Airliner
Was Far Off Course;
No Engine Trouble
Nineteen of 22 Bodies
Taken to Los Vegas;
Accident Delays Others
By the Associated Press.
LAS VEGAS, Nev., Jan. 20.—The
Trancontinental & Western Air
transport which carried Carole
Lombard, 15 ferry pilots and six
others to death was 7 miles off Its
course and presumably d d not have
engine trouble, investigators report
ed today.
A T. W. A. spokesman said the
luxury ship was 7 miles northwest
of its course. He stated the course
is 25 miles wide and that T. W. A.
planes are not routed over such hig»i
peaks as the 8.700-foot mountain
into which the ship crashed Friday
night.
A representative of the Civil Aero
nautics Authority said propellers of
the twiv -enu'hed craft were not
feathered, as they wowld Lave been
if the motors had faltered. He said
that discounted a theory that the
engines might have failed.
Instruments Reduced to Junk.
All instruments were reduced to
junk, e'iminating any chance of
gaining a clue to the cause from
them.
The investigation is being con
ducted ov the Army, the C. A. A.,
two representatives of the House
of Representatives Committee on
Major Air Disasters, T. W. A. and
local officials.
Nineteen of the 22 bodies have
been brought to the Garrison mor
tuary here. Arrival of three others
was delayed overnight when a horse
carrying one plunged down a moun
tainside. became lodged between
trees and had to be destroyed.
Because of darkness, the party
bringing the bodies of Mrs. Eliza
beth K Peters, mother of Miss Lom
bard. and a man camped overnight
at the scene of the horses plunge,
only one-fourth mile below the ,
wreck scene.
Earlier, Coroner B. Mahlon Brown
had announced that all bodies were
here and that an inquest would be
held last night to permit release of ;
those of Miss Lombard. Mrs!" Pe- !
ters and Otto Winkler, Metro-Gold
wyn-Mayer publicity man. The
three were to have been sent to
•Glendale, a Los Angeles suburb, for
funeral services Thursday.
Gable Ends Isolation.
Coroner Brown had said Mrs. Pe
ters’ body was identified by dental
work and that efforts would be
made to identify all by dental
work or, in the case of the ferry
pilots, bv fingerprints if they could
be obtained.
Because of the delay, it was un- i
certain when any of the bodies
would be released to relatives.
Clark Gable. Miss Lombard's hus- i
band, broke his hotel room isola
tion yesterday to visit a mortuary
and select a casket. He did not
view her body, choosing to remem
ber her as he last saw her a week
ago
Then he drove to the foothills and i
asked a recovery party to search
the wreckage carefully for /Miss !
Lombard's wedding ring and a
V for victory pin she was wearing.

Coleman L. Blease,
Ex-Senator, Dies
In South Carolina
Perennial Candidate
*
Was Stormy Figure in
State, National Politics
Coleman L. Blease, former United
States Senator from South Carolina,
where he was a political storm cen
ter for years, died last night in a
Columbia (S. C.» hospital, the As
sociated Press reported. He was 73
years old.
A perennial candidate for office
since the 1890s, Mr. Blease was Gov
ernor of South Carolina from 1911
to 1915, and was United States Sena
tor from 1925 to 1931. He shot into
the national limelight in his first
administration as Governor because
of his issue of nearly 3,000 pardons.
He bitterly attacked America's
entry into the World War, and Pres
ident Wilson's policies. In 1917
President Wilson made a direct ap
peal to South Carolina voters, ask
ing the former's Governor's defeat
in his race for the Senate.
Skillful Criminal Lawyer.
In private life a skillful criminal
lawyer, Mr. Blease was a candidate
for Governor or Senator in almost
every primary in the last two dec
ades. His last race was for Governor
in 1938.
In later years he usually polled
enough votes to enter a second pri
mary, but never was nominated.
Last year he was elected by the
General Assembly to the State Un
employment Compensation Commis
sion, and began his four-year term
last July 1.
Mr. Blease was born in Newberry.
S. C , October 8. 1868 He attended
Newberry College, the University of
South Carolina and Georgetown
University. The year after his
graduation from Georgetown in
1889. he was elected to the State
House of Representatives, where he
served almost a decade.
Was Constant Candidate.
Whether ‘‘Coley" Blease was
elected to more public offices than
any other man of his time, as he
said, or was defeated for public
office more than any other man, as
many of his political foes said, he
was a candidate in almost every
election after he attained his ma
jority. Following his terms in the
State House of Representatives, he
was later State Senator and served
as presidential elector in 1896 and
1900. In 1910 he became Mayor of
Newberry, from which office he re
signed to become Governor.
Mr. Blease was Governor for two
2-year terms till 1915. and one of
the last acts of his administration
was a blanket pardon for many
hundreds of persons free on parole.
Referring to the pardons, he told
Senate colleagues that ‘‘they were
poor and helpless, with no one to
speak for them, no money to hire
lawyers, no money to circulate peti
tions, no money to have friends
come into the Governors office and
make appeals for them. Some of
them served for years and years for
the very smallest offenses."
Disbanded National Guard.
In January. 1915. he startled the
State bv resigning a week before the
expiration of his second term and
the notice, written in red ink. was
cheered by the Legislature. An
earlier skirmish with the War De
partment, over the disposition of the
State militia led to an executive
ordpr Immediately before his resig
nation. disbanding the entire State
National Guard. The order was
rescinded by Gov. Richard 1. Man
ning, his successor.
Out of public office for nine years.
Mr. Blease went into the 1924 sen
atorial primary, a four-cornered
fieht in which he won over Repre
sentative James F Byrnes, later
United States Senator and now an
associate justice of the Supreme
Court. Mr. Blease. who was bitterly
opposed to the policies of President
Wilson, including the League of Na
tions. carried his disregard of party
regularity into the Senate. In 1926
he prevented a Senate vote on a res
olution of adherence to the World
Court by conducting a filibuster.
Admired Dawes and Borah.
Discussing party organization a
year later with South Carolina
newspapermen, he said he did not
belong to the Democratic party, "if
by the party is meant the caucus
that tries to dictate how I should
vote." He professed great admira
tion for Vice President Dawes and
Senator Borah of Idaho, both Re
publicans.
Mr. Blease was married twice. In
1890 he married Miss Lillie B. Sum
mers, who died in 1934. and in 1939
he was married to Mrs. Carolina
Floyd. Among his survivors ts a
half brother, former Chief Justice
Eugene S. Blease of the South Caro
lina Supreme Court.
Funeral sendees will be held in
Columbia at 3 p.m. tomorrow, with
burial in Newberry.

SAN JUAN. Puerto Rico. Jan 20.
—The removal of Gov. Rexford Guy
Tugwell of Puerto Rico as the only
means of obtaining co-operation
and harmony in working out civil
defense plans was urged yesterday
