Investigate Rumors That Captain
Got Instructions From Shore
To Get Along Without Aid
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Nov. 19.-The rec-
ords of three commercial wireless
telegraph companies produced in
court today indicated that officers
of the steamer Vestris made no re-
port to their superiors on land that
they were in trouble at sea until
after they sent out a general SOS,
which was hours after there were
definite signs that they were in
serious danger.
On several instances after the
ship had begun to keel, it was also
shown, they reported "nothing to
communicate" to a sister ship ap-
proaching them.
Officials of the Radio Marine
corporation and the Marconi
Wireless company occupied the:
stand for the greater p'art of the
fourth day's session of the federal
inquiry into the sinking of the Ves-
tris off the Virginia capes a week
ago today with the loss of more
than a hundred lives.,
Nothing they testified indicated
that the captain of the ship de-
layed his SOS until 10 o'clock
Monday morning, almost a full day
after he had had to leave the
Vestris too, on any authority other
than his own.
Tuttle Subpoenaes Records
United States Attorney Charles
H. Tuttle, conducting the inquiry
before United States Commissioner
Francis A. O'Neill, has subpoeaned
the radio records to determine the
truth or falsity of rumors that dur-
ing those long hours when the Ves-
tris was keeling over, Captain
William Carey has asked for in-
structions from ashore as to the,
advisibility of asking aid and had
been told to make every effort to
get along without a distress call.
The only other important witness
of the ;lay was Herbert G. Welland'
23-year-old third mate of the Ves-
tris, who had charge of launching
the life boats. His testimony of
the launching was at striking var-
iance with previous testimonies of
passengers and members of the
crew that inefficiency was shown
in getting the boats into the water
and that they were found to be
unseeawrthy when they were
Steward Is Last Witness
The fourth and only other wit-
ness of the day was a 20-year-old
steward in the second cabin who
told of being assigned to investi-
gate a leak in the side of the ship
At the close of today's session
the federal attorney said that he
still had some radio records to be
produced, but he intimated that he
believed those already read from
the stand were fairly conclusive'
evidence that Captain Carey with-
held his SOS as long as he did
solely on his own responsibility and
not in submission to instructions
from ashore.

Death Toll Increases
In Wake Of Tempest
(By Assocatd ress)
LONDON, Nov. 19.-The great
tempest which devastated portions
of England and northwest Europe
late last week, moved across Scan-
danavia and the Baltic Sea and to-
night was spending its force in the
sub-Arctic region of Russia.
Tales of marine disaster and of
property losses on land came from'
the wake of the storm and addi-
tional reports were received of
probable loss of life both afloat
and ashore.
The gale took a toll of more than
two score lives and it was possible
that this might be nearly doubled'
when reports are received of some
of the wrecks along the coast.
The fate of 11 of the crew of the
steamer, Eltham, wrecked on the
coast of Cornwall, remained in
doubt tonight. No bodies have been
washed ashore nor was there any
other indication of the where-
abouts of the crew, but it was still
hoped that they might have been
rescued by some passing vessel.
From Stockholm came a report
that a thousand ton steamer had.
been thrown on the rocks of Her-
mosand. The vessel could not be
identified from the shore and
nothing was known about the'
crew. It was feared, however, that
all aboard her had been lost. f

Annual Inter-Class Events To Be
Held On South Ferry Field
Saturday Morning
In the annual class games, to be
held on South Ferry field next
Saturday morning, the freshman
class, as yet untried in battle, will'
meet the more experienced soph-
omores in what is expected to be
a hard fought battle on the part,
of both teams.
The sophomores, who have se-
lected George Ryerson, '31, as their
captain, met last night at the
Union for a pep talk and rally.
Plans to waylay the erring fresh-
man on Black Friday have been'
carefully laid and committees to
enforce these plans have been ap-
The freshmen have as yet elec-
ted no captain, but will do so at a
pep meeting which will be held at1
7:15 o'clock Wednesday night in
the ballroom of the Union. At'
this meeting Carl Brandt of the
speech department will deliver the
principal address, then Ernest Mc-
Coy, '29, Varsity basketball captain,
will give a short talk. Robert War-
ren, '29, will represent the student
council at the meeting and will
explain the rules of the contests.
Sophomores Have Yet To Win
During the last two successive
class games, the present sophomore
class has as yet been unable to
score a victory. As a result, they'
will assemble Saturday at Ferry
field determined to down their
traditional rivals.'
Already the freshmen are band-I
ing together in small groups and
walking back and forth across the'
campus shouting, "Down with '31",
and even more disrespectful slo-
gans, which have been specially
As usual, the traditional events
will be held, consisting of a cane
spree, pillow fights on the backs of
wooden horses, and a flag rush.'
Each of the first two count one 1
point and the flag rush, three. The
class which has the largest num-
ber of men out for the games is
almost certain to win the latter
event since the superior strength
gained in this way is of a decided
Meeting Places Are Set
The sophomores will meet at Wa-
terman gymnasium to paint the
traditional red of bravery on their
faces and on any unfortunate
freshman who wanders into the
wrong path. There the sophomore
band will assemble to lead them to
the battle field and to help bolster
the spirits of the Class of '31.
The freshmen will meet at the
Union to prepare themselves for
the fray and it is expected that
they, also, will have a band to lead
their procession to Ferry field. The
'verdant green' will be their favor-
ite color and undoubtedly there
will be considerable of it to be seen
