ZL WASHINGTON, June 22.—Still no trace today of the vanished crew of the schooner Carroll A. Deering, nor of 20 other ships lost in the mystery of the sea. Search of the vessel stranded with full-set, in the sands of Cape Hatteras, has brought to light no clue. The crew is literally gone without a trace. Pirates, possibly using U-boats, are blamed by department of commerce officials for the disappearance of tJiiw and the crews of other mysteriously "abandoned" ships. The department is determined to get at the bottom of the mystery. Officials planned today to ask the army or navy for planes to patrol the coast Meanwhile coast guard Teasels were slipping In and out of eovas and inlets near the scene, la hope* of picking ap a clew. If pirates raided the ships and murdered or captured the crews, as some official* believe, they must have left some trace along the shore. The disappearances extend over months and a raiding vessel would have to have some base for operations along the shore. A list of 10 vee.tels which have disappeared In the last few months was made up at the commerce de partment today. Five of the vessels, or possibly six. were near Cape Hatteras when they went down. While the number of vessels which have vanished Is not unusual, the fact that no trace has been found of them, and that so many were last heard from near the same spot is unusual. If they had blown up. ran aground or even capsized some bit of wreckage wquld NEAR DEATH AS AUTO PLUNGES Thoma.l F. Turney.

BY MAX BALTHASAB MANHASSET, Long Island, lom 22.—0n the form of today Georgia Carpentler has only the rambler** chance of winning the world's heavy weight championship from Jack Dempsey on . July J. Dempsey needs only to bold the condition he now has, while Cirm tier could —if such a thing were pos sible—improve 2b per cent and still have little chance of winning. Carpentier is in as perfect shap* as it is ponsible for him to reac^. Ho could go in the ring capable of fighting his best But his beet notch is not KMC enough for the rugged mauler from Manansa. | He has the speed, skill, wonderful [strength for his pounds, courage and, .above all—pride of achievement. But his comparative frailty of body is against him. Also h« has some faults with the gloves. He carries his left hand too low and far back for quick action. When he hooks with it he misses four out of five. Dempssy's left to right and ro» verso shifts, his perpetually swing ing head, make him as much of * moving target as the challenger. Only carelessness will make It pos sible for the Frenchman to get home with a blow needed to tear the crown off the American's head. At Infighting he will be a baby la Dempsey'e bands. Only a miracle or an accident can win for Carpentler. Right Row. as the two men ahape up, I ftgtire Carpentler will be lucky" to last a round. Should be weather the first round or should he succeed In lasting to the third he'll be tired enough to be a target for Dempeey'a 4«th knock out $lO,OOO Indorsed Checks Lost Here Nine thousand, soventy-nlne dol lars and 37 cents in checks were lost Wednesday morning by a woman clerk employed by the law firm of Bogle, Merrltt & Bogle, Central building.
