Signs of Insanity Re

Held For Immediate
Saving of Party
STOCKHOLM. July 10.—(JP>—'The
five survivors of the Italia are ill
with fever and moat of them ahow
signs of partial insanity, according
' to word received from the Swedish
rescue ship Quest today.
Little hope is held for their imme
diate rescue. Their morale is low.
Lieutenant Einar-Paal Lundborg.
who was marooned on the ice near
Foyn island with them for 13 days,
said his stay was terrifying. They
rhad very little food and what he got
was rather unappetizing. They were
reprovisioned before he was rescued,
Lundborg asserted all the sur
vivors were suffering from fever
and most of them showed signs of
mental aberration- Giuscppi Biogo.
radio operator, was suffering from
fever for the last two days before
Lundborg was rescued but neverthe
less he arose at least twice daily to
operate the wireless.
Nobile Story Don't Check
Since Lundborg was rescued last
Friday ‘here has been no radio con
tact with the marooned men, ad
vices from the Quest said.
Other details coming from Spitz
hergen conflict with reports of the
disaster given out by General Um
berto Nobile. All telegrams from
the base ship C'itta di Milano, where
Nobile is. are being censored. No
body is allowed to telegraph in any
iMg language except Italian and all tele
1^ grams to Rome are controlled by
Nobile himself.
It was learned, however, that No
bile now say* the radio was all
right from the first minute after
the dirigible crashed on May 25.
Nobody can explain how the Cltta di
Milano and other stations were un
able to pick it un until June 9. when
the base shin first announced that
it had established communication
with the survivors.
General Nobile's mvsterious state
ment about the jn^xoected fall of
the dirigible and that the crew was
not prenared appeared to conflict
with the fact that there were 50
pounds of provisions in the navi
gating cabin for six persons. This
was held to indicate that measures
had been taken for a forced landing,
otherwise the stores would have
been kept in the dirigible's interior.
Early Rescue Not Likely
Dr. Finn Malmgren and the two
men who started afoot for land with
him had fifty pounds of store*
when they started on May "0. They
bad no weapons aod It was thought
that they all perished.
Hope for rescue of the five ma

For fifty years genuine “Phillips

National Committee
Will Organize I n
New York Wednes
day to Map Plans
ALBANY, N. Y., July 10.—<A»>—
Democratic campaign plans are shap
ing up rapidly and within 49 hours
will be disclosed to the country.
In New York City tomorrow the
national committee will organize and
a chairman will be named to direct
operations. Governor Smith and Sen
ator Robinson, his running mate,
will attend the meeting and will
have much to say in the mapping out
of battle lines.
The vice presidential rominee, aft- i
er a brief stop-over in Albany yes
terday, proceeded to New York oy
train, leaving the governor to make
the trip down the Hudson today by
automobile. On the way Mr. Smith
planned to visit a Boy Scout camp
at Bear mountain and drop in at the
national guard camp across the river,
near Peekskill.
The meeting here of the two nom
iness was their first rince they were
nominated. For an hour they dis
cussed campaign strategy, organiza
tion and issues, but all they would
say later as to the ground canvassed
I was that the situation had been dis
cussed in a general way.
Coincident with their chat, how- j
ever, it was disclosed that Governor
Smith had given his word that if
elected he would begin at once to!
formulate a legislative program for
farm relief. He gave this pledge
] in a message to W. H. Settle, presi- J
i dent of the Indiana Karin Bureau
I Federation, who had inouired as to
his position of the problem.
Asserting that on the farm ques- |
tion he stands "squarely on the
pledge* given by the democratic par
j ty at Houston.” the democratic presi
| dential pominee told Settle that if
he wins in November he would not
[ wait until his inauguration to act
I hut immediately would call a con
ference of leaders to aid him in
i drafting a legislative program of re
lief during the winter.
“I understand and symnathlse with
i the objects which organized agrlcul-l
ture is struggling to attain and'
which our party has promised them
to secure,” he informed Settle, who
in his message on inquiry had told •
the governor that "the farmers nrej

Tomato Packers Sent
To Pack Crop For
Sale In This Coun

(Special to The Herald)
SAN BENITO, July 10.—Charges of
wholesale violation of the alieu
labor law in the transportation of
labor from this country to Mexico to
handle the tomato deal in several
parts of that republic in competi
tion with the Valley and Florida are
being investigated by the United
States department of state, accord
ing to a communication received
here today by J. E. Bell, manager
of the chamber of commerce.
The matter was brought to the at
tention of the btate department by
Congressman John N. Garner, at the
request of Mr. Bell, and followed
the receipt of information by Mr.
Bell that laborers are being trans
ported into Mexico to handle this
work. The laborers in the main are
skilled, or semi-skilled packers, and
are transported in large numbers,
according to the information which
Mr. Bell received.
Mr. Garner communicated the mat
ter to Secretary of State James B.
Kellogg and received a letter from
Mr. Kellogg stating that the matter
is being taken up at once and in
vestigated. The American consuls
at Nogales. Guaymas. and Masatlan
have been asked by Secretary Kel
logg to investigate the report that
75 per cent of the tomato packers
are imported into Mexico from the
Unied States during the tomato sea
son. The consuls are asked to re
port back at once to the secretary,
and further action will depend on
these reports, it is said.
"It is difficult enough to meet the
competition of the tomato deal in
Mexico without having Americans go
down there to help force us out of
business.” Mr. Bell said. “American
capital is financing the growing of

Secretary Kellogg in the communi
cation to Congressman Garner, a
copy of which has been received
here, called attention t-* the tax of
one cent a pound which was placed
recently by the Mexican government
on exports of tomatoes. Mr. Bell
voiced the belief that ttv« is only a
rase of the Mexican government to
help in the fight against a tariff
on tomatoes, and said that it prob
ably would be taken off as soon as
the tomato season opens.
