Johnson, 74, Dies; First Director of Land Bureau Fred W. Johnson. 74. the lest man to serve as commissioner of the General land Office and the first to become Director of the Bureau of Land Management, died last night at his home In the Chastteton, 1701 Sixteenth street N.W. Mr. Johnson spent nearly 18 years in the Interior Depart ment. He came to Washington with that agency in 1933 with a farm, legal and political back ground. He was bom in Green River, Wyo. Mr. Johnson grew up on a Nebraska farm. He was a man who still rolled his own cigar ettes, Western fashion, even after 22 years in Washington. Attended Alexandria School He was graduated from Epis copal High School In Alexandria. Va., In 1900 and spent a year at the University of Virginia. While working for his AJJ. and law degrees at the University of Ne braska he worked summers In the Nebraska, harvest fields. Afterwards he practiced law In Rock Springs, Wyo., becoming a member of the State Board of Law Examiners, county and city attorney. In 1928 he was Western regional director of the Demo cratic National Committee. Salt Lake City, Utah. As regional di rector of the eight Rocky Moun tain States, he backed Alfred E. Smith in his race for the presi dency. He piled up some ma jorities for Franklin D. Roose velt in the 1932 campaign. At one time he was director of the Association Against the Prohi bition Amendment. Mr. Johnson was commis sioner of the General Land Office, the world’s biggest real estate agency, from 1933 until that agency combined with the grazing service In 1946 to form Anthony Stralla, 'Admiral' Os Prewar Gambling Ship LAS VEGAS. Nex.. Aug. 1 UP). —Anthony Coroero Stralla, ex bootlegger and prewar gambling ship ‘'admiral.” dropped dead of a heart attack yesterday while shooting craps at a plush casino hotel. Even In death, Strslla—better known as Tony Comero—re mained a controversial figure. Deputy Coroner Bud Bode 11 said he will investigate what he termed concealment of the gam bler’s death. Mr. Bodell declared Stralla “was dead before he hit the floor” at the Desert Inn dice table, but that the coroner's of fice was not notified until al most four hours later. Stralla, 54, was in Las Vegas awaiting the opening of his $6 million resort hotel. Stardust. A witness said the gambler had dropped about SIO,OOO in the dice game and suffered a heart seizure after engaging in an ar- , gument with a croupier. Stralla was said to have made : 81 million before he was 30 as a bootlegger, but in 1929 he was ; convicted of bootlegging liquor, and sentenced to two years in : McNeil Island (Wash.) peniten tiary. He later gained control of gambling ships that anchored off the Southern California coast and shuttled customers to and fro in water taxis. In 1939 Earl Warren, then State attorney general and now Chief Justice of the United States, vowed to “sink” the gambling fleet. The ensuing battle featured bitter courtroom disputes .and water hose fights between Stralla’s “sailors” and Coast Guardmen. The acclaim Mr. Warren re ceived from curbing the gam bling fleet was a factor in his subsequent election as Califor nia Governor. Stralla made another try with a nautical casino in 1946. This time the Federal Government' locked up his converted mine layer Lux and it was eventually scrapped. After that Strglla turned to legitimate shipping and oper- I a ted the Seven Seas Trading !n Hmnrtam JONES. WILLIAM 8. In loving memory of our dear husband. father, grand father and brother.

J.|700 Industry Denies Abnormal Jam Os Unsold Cars DETROIT, Aug. 1 (A s ).—Auto industry spokesmen today viewed aa groundless a Senate Inter state Commerce subcommittee’s concern over the backlong of unsold new automobiles and dealer mortality. The Senate group said yester day it was “greatly concerned” over the “record number” of un sold new models on the market. It added that many new car dealers are “in economic diffi culties.” Spokesmen for General Mo tors. Ford, Chrysler, American Motors and Studebaker-Paekard, however,, denied there was an abnormal jam of unsold cars or that the financial position of dealers was anything but strong. Inventories, they said, are below what they should be at the cur rent sales volume. Profits Cited “When you are doing the business that dealers are doing in this record sales year, lt Is demanding that the inventory be higher.” said a Studebaker- Paekard spokesman. “Our deal er profit margin Is the best in years.” A GM representative described the current market as “healthy, competitive . . and rather a good one for the customer.” He said GM dealer turnover was especially low for the first six months of 1955 and unsold cars were below normal, per centagewise. Chrysler took the same stand saying, “Our dealers are mak ing profits and their stocks are barely adequate In the present market.” “Ford is happy, the dealers are jubilant, the buyers over joyed," declared a Ford spokes man. “It seems like the only unhappiness is among com mittee members.” American Motors found “noth ing wrong with the auto market that a bit of astute merchandis ing technique for the individual dealers won’t cure. This is a free-for-all market and the healthy will survive,” a spokes man at American stated. To Watch Market The subcommittee is looking into auto market practices. It said it "intends to watch the automobile, market situation closely in the critical months ahead during the model change over period.” The group also said it had been laying the foundation for possible legislative recommen dations. But it added it has Been progressing warily because “the manufacture and distribution of automobiles is probably the most important single industry In the economy of the United States." The subcommittee also has been inquiring into reports of so-called auto bootlegging prac tices and allegations of phan tom freight charges on cars. B. J. yan Ingen, 65, Headed Bond Firm NEW YORK.

Nudist-Peeping Plane Crashes LUPIN LODGE. Calif.. Aug. 1 UP)— Two airmen wrecked their light plane near here yesterday after skimming the treetops of a nudist camp. Members of the Western Sun bathers Association said the plane flew down the canyon where their lodge is located while they were playing volleyball. It made a few tight turns, they said, and headed into a canyon with very steep walls. Not long afterward the pilot and a passenger showed up at the nudist camp.
