UNS)—In the murky log enveloping the Atlantic Seaboard. I saw 32 brave men waging a desperate battle with death today.
Huddled forward, they clung tenaciously to the rail of the crippled Freighter Malang as it lurched and pitched in the angry sea, while rain and sleet beat down relentlessly.
Flying at less than IOO feet—that was the ceiling—the crew appeared to US just a dark blot in the engulfing must, through which the morning light could scarcely penetrate.
Only the dim outlines of the Malang's hulk, helpless 12 miles north of Provincetown because of a broken tail shaft, was discernible as the storm lashed forth with unabated fury.
Stabbing through the fog faintly were the bobbing lights of the Coast Guard Cutter Osipee, which during the night, had shot life-lines across the disabled freighter, only to have them snapped by the elements.
The .skipper of the mercy ship radioed that further attempts to take off the crew will be made as soon as the storm breaks.
In the meanwhile seafarers are wondering how* much longer the Malang can withstand the battering.
All agree that the men aboard must be nearing the end of their strength.
The plight of the freighter is but one chapter in the havoc wrought by a wild April storm which raged across the sea and New’ England, causing eight deaths and heavy property damage.
A snowfall up to five inches was reported in some localities and with it came a devastating gale.
The yawl Simea, caught in the icy grip of the blizzard, went aground four miles west of Mattituck Point,

CHICAGO MAYOR TO PAY HACK SALARIES
CHICAGO. April 14 ~(UP>—F.d-’ ward J. Kelly today picked up the work of the martyred Anton J. Cer-mak and attacked with Irish vigor the tremendous responsibilities confronting him as world's fair mayor.

After a Democratic President had been elected last November, the price of brewery stock nearly doubled, the Court at Media was informed yesterday. when Judges Fronefield, Broomall and MacDade heard arguments on an alleged option for portion of stock holdings of the Chester Brewery, at Second and Palmer streets.
Attorney R. Cohn, of Philadelphia representing interests that sought the purchase of three-fifths of the stock of the Penn Beverage Company, present owners of the brewery, declared that the stock was held at $73,000 On November 4 last, four days before election, the price was set at $43,000 The prospective purchasers, in a letter written November 9, accepted the offer, but heard nothing from the owners of the stock. Hence, a suit in i equity was brought to compel the I sale of the stock at the original figure
Attorney Kingsley Montgomery, representing the brewery stockholders, argued that the original offer was not a real option, simply an offer of the stock for $45,000. The letter in reply offered IO per cent.
: cash and the balance in 60 days, 1 which, counsel said, was not according to the original offer.
Judge Fronefield said it was a question whether the November 4 letter i construed an option, or whether it was “simply an expression of a will-j bigness to sell.”
Counsel filed briefs and a decision will be made later.

DELAWARE COUNTIAN REING CONSIDERED
A Delaware county man is considered as having a “good chance” of being appointed United States Minister to Austria, advices from Washington indicate.
The probable envoy is George H Earle, 3d. socially prominent sportsman, of Gray s lane, Haverford, He is a member of the Merlon Cricket Club, the Philadelphia Country Club and was graduated from Harvard In 1913. He was captain of the Bryn Mawr Polo Club in 1925. Mr Earle played an active part in the Roosevelt campaign and his name appeared among the contributors to the Democratic National Committee’s campaign fund.
Any form of socialized medicine, dentistry or pharmacy was severely criticised last evening by Dr. Seth A Brum rn, chairman of tile Economics Committee of the Philadelphia County Medical Society, speaking before an audience of nearly three hundred dentists, physicians and pharmacists, laymen and members of the Delaware Count.\ Medical Society Auxiliary at a combined meeting of the three professftms held in the Y. VV. C A building, Seventh and Sprout streets
The peculiar nature of this nation as compared with other countries of the world was given by the Philadelphia physician as one of the reasons for his disagreement with the ad\creates of social medicine and kindred professions.
A brief description was given of tile present stages of the system In Germany and England where the young doctors must take care of hundreds of patients for a small stipend from the Government and often never rise from their positions al the bottom of the professional ladder because of the handicaps Imposed. The carelessness created by the necessity of handling so many charity patients was also given as an attendant evil of the system and the tendency of the physicians in their haste to send patients to overcrowded clinics and hospitals was brought to the attention of the audience ’ Wit Ii a young English physician responsible for the health ; of three thousand souls, what would be the outcome of the occurrence ot some sort of serious epidemic in the I land?" Dr. Brumm asked
In aiming at the various weak points found in the need for such a system in this country the speaker pointed out that a study had revealed that it was possible that in a single year there could be only five per cent

Four days of testimony In the Akron inquirv have developed definite opinions that the disaster might have been avoided bv different navigation tactics in Its last hour or two of flight.
Fom the thousands of words spoken bv witnesses who appeared before the naval court of inquiry here there emerged today' as Hie first phase of the investigation was concluded, a picture of what must have happened in tfmt tragic battle for « xistenee over the Atlantic waves, off Barnegat. N J.
There appeared to br little doubt that the Akron, beaten lower and lower by a terrific electrical storm, and failing to take advantage of tho four coni .es of escape now held to have been open to her, was destroyed when a final desperate I'ffort to gain altitude forced her tail into tho water.
Whether blame will be attached to her captain. Uouimander Frank C. McCord, remains uncertain. He has been defended stoutly by the only ; surviving officer, Lieutennat Commander Herbert V. Wiley.

HARRISBURG. Pa., April 14 (UP) - Pennsylvania s immediate unemployment relief situation presented a pleasant picture today, one in which county relief fund treasuries found their cash on hand sufficient to meet the needs of the 2,000 000 needy dependent upon them.
Two swift strokes changed the panorama of the relief picture and blotted oui the scenes of hungry jobless, empty relief treasuries and rising rebellion which slate and county officials had painted The first telling blow wa* that struck by the state legislature which in a single day made available $5,-000,000 for immediate u *
The second came within 24 hours from Washington, where it was announced the Reconstruction Finance Corporation had granted Pennsylvania an additional $5 000.000 for Apili and May State emergency relief board officials lost little time in alloting to the counties that needed additional funds sum sufficient to complete thru work for the month of April and in assuring the needy that more fundi would b»- forthcoming for May.
The state board allocated $3,255 067 to finish relief work In April, bringing the entire allocation for the month to $5 844 415 These sums were advanced from state and Federal grants of $14,000,000 in which the two $5,000,000 award, played the leading roles.
