(Hy Associated Press)
Lakehurst, N. J., Sept. 26. - Chief
attention of the naval court of in-
quiry here was directed today to the
testimony of the remaining survivors
of the airsh-ip Shenandoah as to the
condition of the helium gas cells just
before or at the time of the wreck-
ing of that craft.
One witness, James H. Collier chief
rigger, who had supervision over the
cells, created a mild sensation late
Friday with the statement that there
was a failure of several of the gasS
bags before the ship foundered.
It was the first testimony of this
character to be adduced and was in
direct conflict with that of a dozen
or more others.
Collier, who was awakened from
sleep just before the crash, was very
positive in his declarations. He saidi
he was satisfied when he awakened
and saw several of the bags deflated
about 30 per cent that the ship was
doomed, adding that he so told an-
other member of the crew.

Boston, Sept. 26-Tho Submarine S-
51 lay tonight in 23 fathoms of water
a few miles off Block Island while
men from other ships of the navy
were doing their best to learn wheth-
er any of the 34 men on board were
alive. The submarine was rammed
last night by the Savannah Line
steamer "City of Rome." The only
members of the crew of 37 rescued
by the steamer were three seamen
who were landed in Boston late to-
day, one of them in bad shape.
These three men held out little hope
that their comrades would be found
alive, for they said chlorine gas had
been teleased in the submarine. They
awed their escape to the fact that
they were near the conning tower and
floated out. A diver sent out from
the U. S. S. Camden reported that he
had been unsuccessful in his attempt
to communicate with the crew of the
I submarine. 'He found a large hole
in her port side near the conning
tower. The S55 1"came from the sea-
side, said the graphic radio report
of Captain John Thiel of the 'City of
Rome,' with no side lights showing.

lights were switched on. Struck for-
