Mili- tary experts continued efforts to- day to find out why the big Globe- master crashed here Saturday, kill- ing 86 men. And civilian officials, in and out of government circles, asked investigations and action to reduce the number of military plane accidents. Saturday's crash, which killed but 30 of the men aboard the U. S, military's biggest airplane, was the 10th in a recent series which has snuffed out more than 300 lives. Calls began immedhtcly for irrpunding of military a'.rnak while safety, precautions and [lane checks are taken. Sen. Richard Russell (D-Ga) called for an exhaustive investiga- tion. He said it was possible a sub- committee of his Senate Armed Services Committee would take ac- tion on the Moses Lake disaster Moses, Wash., killing 86 persons.

Meanwhile, four Air Force gen- erals huddled with other officers, civilian and technical representa- tives of aircraft and equipment manufacturers, trying to piece to- gether the cause of the accident. Power Lack Cited An Air Force captain with years of experience flying heavy equip- ment said he thought the plane just couldn't develop enough power to rise from the runway. He was Capt.
