Death Toll Rises To 16 in Blaze Al Dubuque Hotel
DUBUQUE, la.. June IO.—(A*) -The death toll in a tragic lire at the Canfield hotel went to 16 today as a three-pronged investigation was stalled in an effort to determine the cause of the blaze wnich swept through the 200-room structure shortly after midnight yesterday.
Taking leading parts in the investigation were the Atete fire marshals office, the Dubuque county attorney and the coroner. At the same time, Dr. F. S. Leonard, coroner, countermanded a previous decision and said an inquest would be held before a three-member jury.
Hotel Owner’s Wife Dies The 16th fatal victim of the fire was Mrs. William Canfield,
*3, wife of the hotel owner. Her husband was taken dead from the ruins yesterday. She died in Mer-c> hospital of third degree burns.
Three of the dead remained unidentified and 23 persons still were reported missing by the Red Gross. Fifteen more were in the hospital.
While officers held off further scarers for bodies on orders of deputy State Fire Marshal Zach Cook who said the walls were - dangerously sagging,” the American Red Cross continued a radio appeal for all persons who were registered at the hotel Saturday night to report to the Red Cross Fire Chief Perry Kirch said he believed most of the persons unaccounted f or after the fire roared through the 55 year old biding early yesterday morning were permanent guests who were registered at the hotel, but had left for the weekend.
The hotel register listed 123 names, many of which were ille-
f%?iet>DaC^se °* >vater damage.
Cross said the missing probably included the three unidentified dead.
, *^reh said he expected to find a few more bodies in the piles cu charred derbis. The search pi ooablv will be able to get under way again about IO a. rn. central daylight saving time, the fire chief said.

OKLAHOMA — Partly cloudy, scattered showers southeast and south central this afternoon and tonight and southeast Tuesday continued warm with high temperatures. 90-95; quite windy north and west.
WASHINGTON, June IO.—(JP)
Induction of 18-year-olds for service in this country only was proposed today as the basis for compromising the senate-house s mumat,e over draft extension.
The plan was offered by Rep. Sparkman (D.-Ala.) in an effort to break the deadlock over the houses repeated refusal to vote for a teen-age draft and the senate s insistence that the teeners be inducted to relief men with long service records, v . ?£a*rv,kman s J Pjan would prows!? id armed forces from sending 18-year-olds overseas unless they volunteered but would allow them to be drafted for service in the United States. It would nfL the status of 19-year-
olds, who now may be sent over-
“"last May is"® “dUCted prior . Prl°r to last May 15, the services were permitted to draft teen-agers for service anywhere, but congress, in passing a resolution extending the draft law until June 30, prohibited induction of a"y teen-agers, regardless of where they were to be used.
Sparkman, one of the seven house members of the conference committee, told reporters he believed the house would accept the compromise, and there were in-
•?* the senate also m,8ht take it as a last resort.
The conferees hope to reach a final agreement this week and submit it to the senate and the house for approval. The teen-age provision of the extension legislation is the main obstacle in the path of agreement.

Maritime Strike Nearer as Ueions Reject SaggesHea
Any Settlement Likely Ta Came af Last Moment; Unions Make Preparations
By MAX HALL
WASHINGTON. June IO.—(ZP) —Chairman Augustine B. Kelley of a house labor subcommittee said today he is going ahead with plans to work out a congressional solution of the maritime dispute now that other federal mediation attempts appear deadlocked.
Kelley, of the subcommittee on labor-management, told a reporter that his group had held off icarings hoping the labor department could work out a settlement.
“We had hoped for a settlement by tomorrow but now that it looks like there will be nothing coming out of the labor department negotiations we feel that we should get busy right away,” Kelley said.
“The deadline for the strike is getting right on us.”
Open Hearings Tuesday Seven unions affiliated with the CIO-dominated committee for maritime unity (CMU) have set a strike date for midnight Friday in behalf of their demands, principally for a reduction in the ^resent 56-hour work-week for seamen. .
Kelley said his committee w’ill open hearings tomorrow with testimony from either Joseph Curran, president of the CIO national maritime union, or Harry Bridges, head of the CIO international longshoremen's and warehousemen’s union. They are co-chairmen of CMU. Another witness will be Joseph Selly, president of the CIO American communications association.
Report Seems 'Too Hot"
Housa Subcommittee Report aa Russia's Dealings With Neighbors Withhold
WASHINGTON, June IO.—(ZP) —A row in the house foreign affairs committee is holding up publication of a report critical of Russia’s policies in dealing with her neighbor nations behind “the iron curtain.”
The report, by a four-member subcommittee which toured Europe last fall, should have been made public last week.
But because of sections which condemn Soviet activity in Poland and the Balk ins, plus Iran as well, administration supporters in the committee are urging a change in language before its release.
Some of these members even said that ‘‘undiplomatic references” to Russia made them favor indefinite suppression of the report.
Says Public To Get Facts
One of the subcommittee members, Rep. Mundt (R-SD), told a reporter that “apparently an attempt is being made to squelch our report.”
He declined to discuss its details, but added that if the committee blocks publication “we will take it upon ourselves to see that the public gets the facts.”
Mundt would say only that the material in the report is “a fac-

Noble Waives His Prelim on Murder
TULSA, Okla., June IO.—(ZP)— John Noble, 22, waived preliminary hearing today and was held for trial on the second murder charge resulting from the bludgeon death of Fred Stahl, 50, a Kansas City salesman.
Bobby Lee Cartwright, 39, pleaded guilty to the crime and already has started serving a life sentence in the state penitentiary at McAlester.
Mrs. Stahl, who came to Tulsa to search for her husband after his disappearance last May 9, returned for the hearing scheduled today. She wept as Noble and his attorney stood before common pleas Judge Carter Smith to announce the waiver.
FIRE EATING AWAY AT APACHE NATIONAL FOREST
SAFFORD, Ariz., June IO.—(ZP) —A fire w’hich has already burned some 500 acres of the Apache national forest in addition to 1,500 acres of forest land on the San Carlos Indian reservation was raging uncontrolled today.
More than IOO forest service rangers and volunteers are battling the flames which started Friday on the Indian reservation in an isolated and heavily timbered region.
other fires, which during the last w'eek have burned over more than 2,000 acres in the Coconino national forest and hundreds of acres in other sections of the state, are under control.
WASHINGTON, June IO—(ZP) —Union preparations for a maritime strike Friday night roared high. gear today after the CIO National Maritime union turned down a proposal to give seam n shore leave with pay.
This suggestion first w*as put forward by labor department conciliators as a possible way to break the deadlock over the length of the W'ork-W'eek at sea.
The idea was to give one day of shore leave for every 14 days at sea, and keep the present 56-hour week—eight hours a day, seven days a week.
Operators Accepted Pima
Eastern ship operators accepted the suggestion last night and formally offered it as a proposal in a negotiating session which lasted until well after midnight.
But the union, w’hich is demanding a 44-hour week, rejected the idea as “impractical,” and i then “proposed exploration of other ways of meeting its demands,” according to a labor department announcement.
Another session was scheduled today at 2 p.m. (est).
Thus the nationwide strike planned by the committee for Maritime Unity (CMU), com posed of seven unions and headed by Harry Bridges and Joseph Curran, moved a grim step closer.
It became more likely that if the walkout is to be avoided at all, the settlement will come at the last moment.
Strike Dae Friday Night
The strike of seamen and dock workers is scheduled at one min-utf, afler midnight Friday night.
If the walkout comes, each seaport will feel its paralyzing effect w'hen 12:01 a.m. Saturday rolls around in the time zone w'here the port is located. Thus the strike will occur four hours earlier in New York than in San Francisco.
Curran’s National Maritime Union served stern notice yester-day in a “strike policy” statement that unless ship operators offer a shorter work week, the strike can t be avoided.
Then the 40-man national council of the union, which unanimously approved the statement here, scattered to their ports and began setting up soup kitchens mg °,ther stoke measures.
\\e are almost sure to hit the bricks Friday night,” said an officer of the union in Philadelphia. Thomas Carolan. *,1We are not very hopeful of a settlement.”

The young ruler had been ill for two days and arose at 6 a. rn. yesterday to take some medicine. Nothing was known of his actions after that time, official sources said, and his body was discovered several hours later in the bedroom of the Barompinan palace by a servant.
New's of the death, which occurred on the eve of a projected trip to the United States, was broadcast at 7 p. m. yesterday and was greeted by wails of grief from a crowd gathered in front of the publicity building in Bangkok.
Mother Prostrate With Grief
Great crowds quickly gathered around the palace. Hie queen mother. Phraratananihsri Sang-wan, an attractive woman in her forties who exerted a strong influence on the young king, was prostrate with grief.
Ananda was a fancier of firearms and often practiced firing in the palace grounds.
The queen mother and a royal suite of 20 had expected to accompany the youthful king on his trip to the United States. He planned to leave here by plane next Thursday and to spend a-bout a week in Washington and New York before flying to Switzerland to resume studies interrupted last December.

Reporters suggested that sending a message to ror.gress in connection with approval of the bill would be unusual.
Rayburn replied that it is sometimes done.
President’s Bill Waits Rayburn also disclosed that the administration leadership will try to get a rule in the house to send the president's own emergency strike control proposal to a conference of the two houses this week. Each passed it in different form.
It is just a matter of awaiting action on the Case bill,” Rayburn said.
