Hearings on the bill to regulate the bituminous coal industry were con- cluded today by the Senate Interstate. Commerce committee after coal oper- ators and the United Mine Workers had given voluminous testimony against and la favor of the measure. There Is little expectancy that the bill will be considered in the current session of Congress and the United Mine Workers' organization has de- clared its desire to have the measure] come up in the forthcoming extra, session. This desire was made known to thei committee by Henry M'arrum, its at- torney, who asserted that in the re- cent campaign all discussion of farm; i and textile industry depression in- cluded an acknowledgement of prompt 1 relief for the bituminous industry. j Senator of Missouri, a Dem- i ocratic member of ihe committee, ex- public school libraries, public school music, and certain sections of tho platfrom of the TViinsylviinia Stato Education Association.

Captain George Ried of the United States liner America again wrote hli name into an epoch of tho sea tonight when he rescued the 32 members of I the crew of the disabled Italian freighter, Florida, in a roaring westerly 700 miles off the Virgina capes. No details what must have been a thrilling battle with tho sea wero given In the laconic message which Captain Uied sent to his line's offices here telling of tho rescue. His message said: "Rescued full crew Florida. Total 32, Chief Officer Harry Manning In charge. Whole westerly gale. Lifeboats lost. Proceeding. More details later." Old shipping men reading those words, "whole westerly could vis- what must have been a, terrific I job. The "whole gale" means a 76- mllc-an-hom- wind and mountainous seas which must have been tossing :ho little freighter around like a cork.

Captain Rled first wrote his namo in. tho heroic letters in January of 1920 when ho turned hla ship, at that time the President Roosevelt, to the aid of the sinking British liner AJT- tlnoe for two days In snow and fog nnd cold. Seas running high, ho held his ship alongside the sinking vessel :md finally rescued her crew. He lost two of his own crew in the rescue. The fate of the two other ships, the British freighter Teesbrldge and tho American tanker. Dannedaike, still remains in doubt. The former has been given up for lost as rescue ships failed to find her In tha posi- tion she broadcast Monday afternoon but the Dannedaike is believed still afloat. She told the President Harri- son, one of the vessels which search- ed unsuccessfully for the Florida, :hat she had set up a Jury rig of sails and was attempting to make Bermuda.
