Los Angeles. A woman at first re
ported to be a 16th casualty was
treated and released. She was found
in an overturned car three hours
after the accident. Her name was
not announced.
Equipment failure was indicated
as a possible cause of the wreck.
Santa Fe officials early today an
nounced finding a loose piece of
steel used to fasten rails to the
ties. The piece was found where
the first car jumped the rails a
half mile from the crash.
The wreck occurred near Otero, a
siding 5 miles south of here, as the
first Diesel-powered train rolled
across tablelands 240 miles out of
Albuquerque on a run from Los
Angeles to Chicago. The scene is
about 12 miles south of famed Raton
James Barber, editor of the Raton
Range who visited the scene, said
loss of life was averted among the
152 passengers because the cars
withstood the pounding as they
bounced about. Two of them jack
knifed across the tracks, just missing
landing in a ditch.
He reported all but the first unit
of the Diesel locomotive and the
last two cars of the train were de
railed. One unit of the locomotive
and two cars overturned. Others of
the 13-car train tilted at angles with
wheels juried in the roadbed.
Uninjured in the mishap were girls

Briefly Today to Pay
Last Tribute to Ford

DETROIT, April 10.—This indus

because of the work of Henry Ford
—paused today to honor him in
Great factories of the world's au
tomotive capital ordered halts to
production for a moment in the
course of the pioneer industrialist’s
The last rites for the millionaire
who died Monday night were sched
uled for 2:30 pm. and thousands of
mourners were expected to pay Mr.
Ford his farewell.
Mrs. Ford and other members of
the family set public services in the
great, dim nave of St. Paul’s Epis
copal Cathedral, situated near down
town Detroit on busy Woodward
avenue, the street down which Mr.
Ford drove his first automobile 50
years ago.
Gov. Kim Sigler of Michigan
asked that the brief silence honor
ing the founder of the Ford motor
empire be extended throughout the
State, with industrial plants ceasing
operations for a minute and ve
hicles on Michigan’s streets and
highways braked to a stop in trib
ute to the man credited with putting
America on wheels.
Many of the same thousands who
solemnly filed past Mr. Ford’s bier
yesterday were expected to jam into
the church and line the street out
side during the 35-minute services.
Mourners yesterday included
working men in overalls, women in
furs, small children to whom Ford
was only a name, and some of the
Nation’s top industrialists who have
long hailed him as the father of
mass production and one of this
country’s great geniuses.
Only family in procession.
After the church rites, the fam
ily has asked that pomp and cere
mony be abandoned. Plans call for
a police-escorted cavalcade to bear
Mr. Pord on his final journey across
the city, with only immediate mem
bers of the famiy in the procession.
Tiny Addison Pord Cemetery, ad
joining the farm where Henry Pord
was bom July 30, 1883, and now in
the shadows of the company’s great
rouge plant, is the destination of
the funeral procession.
Mr. Ford’s grave was to be placed
in a humble plot of ground beside
his father and mother.

Philippine President
Favors Investigation
Of Graft in Surplus
•y rtw Associated Frau
MANILA, April 10. — President
Roxas said in a press statement to
day that an investigation by the
Philippine Congress of reported ir
regularities in disposition of United
States Army surplus property in the
islands would be “most advisable.”
Mr. Roxas said, however, that he
believed no irregularities occurred
in disposition of property by the
Philippines Surplus Commission
which he appointed. He said reports
of graft and corruption in the com
mission came almost entirely "from
people who are either uninformed
or failed to gain approval of special
privileges’’ in acquiring surplus
A United States Army spokesman
said an official statement on looting
at American Army bases would be
issued soon by Maj. Gen. George
Moore, who heads the Philippines
Ryukyus Command. The spokes
man denied Manila press reports
that Gen. Elsenhower had ordered
the command to report immediately
on the situation.
17 Arrested March 25.
A United States Army spokesman
said an officer and 16 men were
arrested March 35 on a charge of
stealing tires at the base, and that
the newspaper reports "perhaps are
confused and exaggerated.”
The Philippine House of Repre
sentatives, revolting against admin
istration whips, demanded that the
Rules Committee bring out a resolu
tion calling for an investigation of
surplus property* irregularities.
In the Senate, Minority Senator
Pedro C. Hemaez denounced Pres
idential Secretary Emilio Abello for
his statement that Army surplus
turned over to the Philippines was
being handled “on the level.”
The Manila Times asserted that
surplus goods were disappearing
rapidly from the engineer base at
Batangas, which has yet to be trans
ferred to the Philippine government.
It said that every house in the
tiniest villages around Batangas
was electrically lighted, despite
devastation during the war. It
quoted local residents as saying that
last year a number of United States
Army sergeants drove truckloads of
generators into the towns "and sold
some for as low as $25.”
Representative Gossett, Democrat,
of Texas yesterday urged an in
vestigation into the loss or theft of
supplies in the Philippines. He
accused th$ Army and Navy of not

Pathologist Convinced
Harvey Girl Drowned
Dr. Jefferson D. Kernodle, State
pathologist for Northern Virginia,
said today all the microscopic ex
aminations he has made on tissues
from Wynona Harvey’s body con
firm his original opinion that the
25-year-old Philippine Embassy
secretary died by drowning.
The pathologist gave the results
of his tests as Dr. Herbert S. Brey
fogle, Virginia’s chief medical ex
aminer, continued chemical tests
in Richmond in an effort to de
tect any traces of poison.
So far, cyanide and the volatile
poisons, such as alcohol, knockout
drops, chloroform, ether and car
bon monoxide, have been definitely
ruled out as cause of death.
Dr. Kernodle explained he had
been making microscopic examina
tions on samples of body tissues
and internal organs.
Miss Harvey was found a week
ago today in a shallow stream in
nearby Virginia. She was lying
face down in a few inches of wa
ter, not enough to cover her head

A winter wheat crop of close to a
billion bushels would exceed the rec
ord 874,000,000 bushels harvested
last year.

already are worrying about the
railroad -box car situation, in view
pf last year’s Jam, when wheat was

Kansas Biggest Producer.
Largest winter wheat-producing
State in this country is Kansas,
which harvested its record crop of
251,885,000 bushels in 1931. But that
crop came from 13,623,000 acres,
while it is estimated that 14,904,000
acres have been seeded this year.
Average yield in Kansas over the
past 10 years was 13.5 bushels an
acre. Last year the yield was 16.2
[bushels and in the 1931 record year
it was 18.5 bushels.. A small frac
tion added to last year’s yield per
acre will give a new record pro
duction this year.

the American grain belt is des
