AMSTERDAM, Feb. IO—(UP)—A death-scattering bomb of IOO pounds, dropped today from a Dutch naval seaplane to the deck of the cruiser De Zeven Provincien, controlled by a mutinous native Sumatran crew, and the mutineers surrendered in the face of a vastly superior naval force.
The bomb exploded, killing 18 men and wounding 25. Three of the dead were European enlisted men. The bomb started a fire aboard the ship.
All the wounded men were natives, the Ministry of Defense told the United Press. All officers taken prisoners when the mutineers put out to sea Sunday were well.
The cruiser is en route to the naval base at Tandjogpriok. Batavia, with a loyal crew in charge.
The Dutch warships met the mutiny ship, spread out in battle formation, aud the commander radioed demanding unconditional surrender. He said J he would attack unless the mutineers hoisted the colors and spread a white J flag on the deck.
The reply from Do Zeven Provincien was a curt refusal concluding:
■'Don’t trouble us.”
The commander, tinder orders from home to deal firmly with the mull- ~ '"

in the East Indies, ordered a seaplane to drop bombs. One struck the deck and started a small fire. The mutineers, who apparently had thought the navy was bluffing, immediately surrendered.
The serious view the government takes of the mutiny and other unrest in Dutch colonies was believed responsible for a decision of Premier ; oner’s Buys De Beerenbrouck not to resign although the government was dc-

RECKLESS DRIVER HAS FINE IMPOSED
In an appeal from a magistrate's hearing, taken before Judge MacDade
at Media yesterday, Edgar Martin, of Pratt, of Somers Jint, N. J., it was Upper Providence township, was ordered to pay a fine of 510 and costs on the charge of rockless driving Martin and hts counsel, Karl Johnson, declared that Martin's arrest by Constable John L. Kerns, of Upper Darby, "was unfair.” Attorney John-v characterized the constable's arrest of Martin and other motorists as a fining mill," and said the present appeal had been taken with the barking of a number of Upper Darby business men. The court said if Martin or other motorists were dissatisfied with the activities of any constable, their recourse should be in othrr action.
Martin was arrested for passing a traffic light at Long lane and Marshall road. Upper Darby.

Police of this county, Delaware and Maryland today were looking for a Folcroft boy who left home yesterday, leaving a note stating that he “was going South ” It is feared that he may be suffering from exposure.
The boy sought is Robert E. Creston. ll, of 320 Charmont street, Folcroft.
He is described as being about 4 feet in height, has chestnut hair, blue eyes

Leonard Warner, of Elmwood avenin*, was worn in bv Burgess IL V. .Strickland as a member of council, to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Howard Fulton.
In re ponse to a query from the borough of Sharon Hill, as to which • de of Cher,ter pike OI Holden dr-ired to be numbered with even numbers, Sharon Hill expressed the preference for the wert side of the high-where the even numbers are d at present.
Declaring that residents of Glenolden and Norwood had selected these boroughs as a place of residence because they afforded a proper social background for them and their families, Junius M. Chestnuts treasurer of the Glenolden board of education, was greeted with vigorous applause at a meeting of the Glen-Nor Parent.s-Teachers Association last night, when he denounced the provisions of the proposed Edmunds Act, now’ pending before the state legislature.
The act. which is passed, will make revolutionary changes in the school code, will vitally affect the Glenolden-Nor wood school districts, Mr, Chestnut! declared. It will consolidate the school districts of Glenolden Norwood, Folcroft and Darby township, the latter embracing the ettlenient,' of McKinley Park, Horntown and Ca Icon Hook.
Following a length meeting of the association, held in the auditorium of Glen-Nor High School, and attended by an audience which crowded the main auditorium and partly filled the gallery, the assemblage unanimously passed a resolution, vigorously protesting any re-districting for con-oltdating of schools at this time and favoring the increase of state subsidies to public schools by levying other forms of revenue than on real estate.
The resolution, offered bv Joseph Calhoun, president, of Oleu-Nor Alumni A- neiatton, declared that ‘local property owners are already too heavily burdened with taxation, md furthermore that economic conditions are preventing the collection of tile normal amount of taxes.
The redistricting for the purpose of consolidating schools would add greatly to the tax burden and still further lessen the porportionato amount of taxes collectible.”
Copies of Hie resolution will be sent to Senator John J McClure and to Representatives Ellwood J. Turner, Glover C. Talbot. Edward Nothnagl* and Thomas YVeidemann. Each person present was urged to send a personal protest to each of the members of the Legislature.
