Casper, Wyo., Sept. 28.-An ni-
known number of victIms of the
wreck of the Burlington Casper-
Venver passenger train Number
1 0 wrecked last night near Lock-
ett, still were in the submerged
cars of the wrecked train tonight.

road authorities claim fewer were
lost.
Casper, Wyo., Sept. 28.-The loss of ,
life late Thursday night when Chi-
cagQ, Burlington & Quincy passenger]
train No. 30 went through a bridge
over Cole Creek, 14 miles east of here,
is estimated at approximately 40 per-
sons. The stream, which flows into
the Platte River at this point and or--
dinarily is dry during the summer,
was swollen by heavy rains Thursday
and the roar of rushing water over the
coaches could be heard for three
miles. The engine and five coaches
dropped into the creek.
One passenger coach was swept 100
yards into the Platte River, which at
that point is more than a mile wide.
It is believed that no passenger in that
coach was saved, because by the time
rescuers could have given aid the
coach had rolled over on its side and.
become completely submereged. j
Snow Stops RescueE
A,ll rescue work had to be tem-
pgrarily abandoned at 2 a. m. Tt

24 hours of continuous rainfall. No
bodies had been recovered at day-
light.
It still was raining this morning.-
One sleeper was left on the track
where it had been derailed at thet
brink of the stream.
The rescue of eight persons in-
cluding women and a baby, was a
feature of the wreck. A rope was
ru from the passenger coach to the
Glenrock side of the creek and seven
made their way to the shore by work-
ing their way over the rope, hand over
hand.

SARAZENIN'FINAL'
Sarazen, Victor Last Year, Wins Ove
Bob Cruickslank in Semi-
Final
HAGEN, '21 CHAMPITON, HAS
EASY VICTORY OVER MCLEAN
Pelham Manor, N. Y., Sept. 28.-(By
A.P.)-Rather easy victory came to-
day to Gene Sarazen and Walter Hag-
en in the semi-final round of the pro-
fessional golfers association tourna-
ment and they will meet tomorrow
for the title.
Sarazen, wnner of the champion-
ship last year, disposed of Robert
Cruickshank of the Schackamofon,
club at Westfield, N. J., at the 32nd
hole of their match 7 up and 5. Hag-
en champion in 1921, eliminated "Dap-
per George" McLean, of the Grassyj
Strain club, Bronxville, N. Y., 12 and
11.
Despite the fact that he was only
four strokes over par for the entire
round, Cruickshank always was
struggling. He appeared the same
"wee Bobby" who set the galleries
athrill during the open championship1
at Inwood last July while playing thel
first nine and was as cocky and con-1
fident as ever when they strode to
thq tenth all even.
But the four birdies in a row that
flew off Sarazen's club on the next
four were a bit too much.
COOLIDGE COMET9N
BRITIS DEBTT1O U, Sal

London, Sept. 28.-David Lloyd
George, today was given a stirring
send off by the members of the Amer-
ican Society who gave a luncheon in
his honor on the eve of his depart-
ure for a tour of Canada and the
United States. The former premier
said he was going to America neith-
er to make speeches nor to write a
book, nor as "a missionary or boot-
legger", but principally to thank Can-
ada and the United States for their
help during the war and to see how
a modern progressive country like
the great American republic has dealt
with the outstanding problems of the
times.
Admires American Progress
England, be said, was part of the
old civ'lization which at times seems
afflicted with decay but which whenl
aroused gives ample proof of its vi-
tality.-
"Europe, just like Ninevah, is re-
building each shattered habitation
with trowel in one hand and sword in
the other," declared Mr. Lloyd George
"I desre to see how a continent
which can build with both hands is
progressing."
With his accustomed elequence and
force, Mr. Lloyd George described
America's entry into the war- when
as he puts its, France was bled white
England staggering, Russia prostrate
Serbia and Roumania isolated.
Praises United States
"Just at this juncture," said the
speaker, "America entered doubtless-
ly and took her stand by the side
of the hard pressed armies of Great
Britain and France. We can never.
forget that gallant act."
The former premier said he had al-
ways felt that the American people
believed that in him they had a kin-
dred spirit. He had throughout his
E fe gained constant inspiration from
America's greatest men, notably Ab-
raham Lincoln, and tomorrow he is
to start on a journey to the country
"which I regard as the greatest mira-
cle of the West, where man has risen
from the dead past to a new hope."

Playing for the first time before an
Ann Arbor audience and opening their
fall season here, the Michigan Rep-

ry Davies' three act comedy, "The
Mollusc", at 8:15 o'clock tonight at
their producing playhouse, the Whit-

The presentation tonight is to bei
the first of a series of plays which
they will present here this year.
"The Mollusc" will be repeated on
Monday and Tuesday nights and will
be followed by Saint .John Ervine's
"Mixed Marriage" which will be given
the rest of the week.
The play itself, sa'd to be the most
brilliant comedy of the well-known:
English dramatist, is a study of the
character of a woman. The author
places under observation a familiar
form of female parasite, which he'
chooses to call a mollusc, a sort of

Paris, Sept. 28-(By A.P.)-"Pru-
dence" was the watchword ton'ght in
French official circles to which the
situation in Germany appears more
than ever puzzling.
There is an impression that the
Derin government is trying to see
with how little the allies will be con-
tent in the way of formal repudia-
t'on of the measures of resistance in
the Ruhr.
Premier Poincare, it was authori-
tatively said, will not be satisfiled
with any more repudiations; he is
waiting for the resistance actually
and permanently to cease and for the
industrial heads in the Ruhr to ac-
cept the situation.
When all this is an accomplished
fact, the allies will proceed to make
the Ruhr pledges as productive as
Possible with the cooperation of thei
heads of the industries and further
reparations negotiations will be al-
lowed to wait until Berlin makes
some move. It is anticipated that if
the government has matters under
control Chancellor Stresemann will
appoint ambassadors to Paris and
Brussels at an early date in order
to resume negotiations in the regu-
lar way and it is thought likely that
he will propose a new scheme for
payment of the reparations through
the diplomatic channel thus establish-
ed.

As minister of police in the Strese-
mann cabinet Herr Gustav Noske may
become virtually dictator of Germany,
if threatened revolts break out as a
result of the government's action in
ending the passive resistance move-
ment in the Ruhr district. Noske is
regarded as one of the strong men in
the Stresemann cabinet.
