AS HEAD OF YAN
Leader of Flotilla Wehich Guards
Chinese Waterway Plans
to Qut Flagship.
SHANGHAI, May 2l-.4M-Rear
Admiral Thomas A. Craven is pre-
paring to haul down his pennant
from the smallest flagship in the
American navy and return to the
United States. IHe will reach home
late in May.
The flagship is the Luzon, a tiny
crft which draws only six feet.
But her sides are scarred with ma-
chine gun bullets and scrap iron
fired from ancient brass cannon
and her decks are dented by rocks
hurled by bandits from the precip-
itous slope or the great gorge of
the Yangste.
That gorge is nearly 3,000 "miles
up-stream, but such is the range
of the flotilla which the Luzon
leads and her commander oversees.
The Yangste river patrol is, in
fact, the only unit of the American
navy which is faced with a day to
day state of war.
The fighting started years ago,
and has had little or no letup.
Along the mighty Chinese water-
way the patrol keeps watch over
American commerce, business men
and missionaries.
While the native communists and
outlaws are frequently armed only
with muzzle loading muskets -and
ancient brass cannon, some of them
have modern rifles and machine
guns. They take their pot-shots at

GT7SE RI VER PAT ROVL
the river traffic from behind solidl
breastworks of mud and under-
growth.
United States armed vessels have
been on the Yangste ever since in
1871, and Admiral Craven has been
one of the most popular of all the
officers who have' been "the old
man" to the fleet. Craven is com-
pleting a regular tour of duty..His
successor will take over his work
and the fleet'will carry on.
Woman Killed, Local
Man Hurt in Accident
As the result of an automobile
collision early yesterday morning at
the corner of the Six-Mile road and
Northwestern highway just outside
of Detroit, James B. Parker, 723
Packard Street, was critically in-
jured, and an unidentified woman
who was riding with him was killed.
Parker has been unconscious in
the Highlan. Park hospital since
the accident. Parker is a teller in
the University branch of the Ann
Arbor Savings Bank. He had driven
into Detroit with Gerald L. Witham,
local druggist, to visit friends;
Witham had not been located late
yesterday afternoon.
Allyn Barnett of Valled lake the1
driver of the other car, said that
Parker failed to stop- for 'a red,
light and crashed into his car.
Barnett suffered severe lacerations
and bruises.
Parker is married and has a child.

Reorganization of Ann Arbor's
water supply system has been ne-
cessitated by the lack of fore3ight
displayed by previous generations,
Harrison H. Caswell, manager of
the water department, said in an
interview yesterday.
Discussing improvements which
the bonds to be sold Monday willY
provide, Caswell said that the newa
reservoir and distribution system
will give outlying districts, which
have suffered from the lack of
feeding mains, a sufficient supply.'
The Ann Arbor water system is
operated entirely by gravity, he
pointed out, and the existing poorly
planned network of pipes and mains
reduces pressure unduly. Trunk1
line mains will be built directly to
the parts of the city which are now
being poorly served, and booster
.pumps will be added within a few
years if necessary, he said.
The old reservoir has many dis-
advantages, Caswell continued: the!

plants which supply all of
water they need, at a low
than the city could.
