Rankin? well up with the bravery
displayed by Captain Inch of the Val

ond Officer Lloyd. While ten ocean
liners maneuvered about the Volturno
after darkness had settled on Thurs
day, Captain Inch wirelessed: "We
can't stand this long. Our boats are
frone. Send boats."
Then Second Officer Uoyd measur
ed up to the mark. Taking four men
; with him, he entered a damaged life
boat, the Volturno'.s last and showed
that the seas could be lived upon.
Second Officer von Carlsbertf of
the Grosser Kurfurst told the story of
, how Uoyd and his crew set the exam

seen dancing up jnd down on top of
the waves," said von Carlesbertf. "and
in a short time the Volturno's boat
.reached us. Second Officer Lloyd
and his crew were in the boat and
no sooner had they boarded the
Kurfurst than their boat sank being
nearly full of water. The trip had
been experimental to see if it were
possible for a small boat to live in
the heavy seas."

WANTS PIPE LINE LAW
Solicitor General Davis Says It Would
he Just as Proper as the
WASHINGTON. Oct. 16. Solicitor
den. Davis argued before the su
preme court Wednesday for reversal
of the commerce court's action in de
claring the ''pipe line law" unconsti
tutional. He contended that the law
was passed in l'.06 to free the coun
try from the oil monopoly and thai
a court order for the dissolution of
the monopoly entered since f Lirrii-b !.'
no reason for annulling the law.
He argued that it was just .im
proper for the government to impose
tinancif l loss upon pipe lines by re
quiring them to carry their competi
tors oil. with reasonable charges, as
it was for the states to pass liquor
laws resulting in losses to 1 reweries.
John C. Milburn for the Ohio Oil
company, the Standard Oil company
New Jersey and the Standard Oil
company of Iyiuisiana. urped that
the government had no power to say
that a company which had built its
ipo line on its own property for its
private use, should be a common
carrier and subject to the regulation
of the interstate commerce commission.
