Are Sailing In GermanBuilt Steamship

PORTSMOUTH, England, May 6.-
(AP)-King George VI and Queen
Elizabeth sailed today amid the thun-
dering farewell of saluting warships
and shore batteries on their prece-
dent-breaking trip of more than six
weeks to Canada and the United
Their vessel, the German-built Em-
press of Australia, sailed promptly at
3 p.m. (9 a.m. Detroit time).
As the mooring ropes were cast
off the tugs pulled the liner's nose
slowly out from the dock, the King
and Queen stood watching the flag-
decked warships in the harbor and
cheering thousands massed on the

drew away and as the liner passed
through the narrow harbor mouth,1
the roar of cheering and thunder of
salutes rolled out.
Crowds Along Route
The London-to-Portsmouth journey.
of King George, who will be the first
reigning British sovereign to visit
North America, and his wife was
one of triumph.
Cheering crowds were massed along
the tightly guarded route of their
special train and thousands of spec-
tators greeted their arrival at Ports-
mouth where the King received the
golden key of the garrison.
Prime Minister Neville Chamber-
lain and Joseph P. Kennedy, United
States Ambassador to London, were
prominent among those who bade the
King and Queen bon voyage at Wa-
terloo Station when they boarded the
train for Portsmouth.
The King was in the uniform of
an admiral. The Queen wore a pale
blue costume and her daughter, Prin-
cess. Elizabeth and Margaret Rose,
were dressed in costumes to match.
Ride in State
The royal family rode from Buck-
ingham Palace to the railroad station
in an open landau drawn by four
grays to the cheers of crowds over-
flowing the sidewalks. .
,King George kissed his mother,
Queen Mary, on the cheeks as she
joined the party at Waterloo Sta-
tion. During the 10 minutes on the
station platform before the train
left the Queen Mother talked ani-
matedly with Kennedy.
The shiny white liner Empress of
Australia which was substituted for
the battle cruiser Repulse for the
journey, was closely guarded in Ports-
mouth Harbor, before the royal party
arrived, by squads of detectives who
checked the credentials of all comers.
Officials were working on the 21,-
850-ton ship until almost the last
After 20 large wardrobe trunks--
containing the Queen's gowns and 50
uniforms for the Kng-and 20 other
pieces of baggage had been stowed
away, an attendant made sure the
Monarchs' electric razor fit the elec-
tric outlet in his suite.
Due may 15
The King and Queen are due at
Quebec May 15, and will journey
through Canada to the Pacific Coast
and back to Niagara Falls. They will
begin a four-day visit in the United
States on June 8, including stops
in Washington, New York and Hyde
The young princesses used their

handkerchiefs to wave goodbye to
their parents for nearly 15 minutes
as the Empress of Australia left.
A shore band played "God Save the
King" and a ship band played "Oh,
Escorted by the 9,100-ton cruisers
Southampton and Glasgow, and with
the Repulse as an added escort fcr
part of the way, the Empress of Aus-
tralia headed west through the Eng-
lish Channel.
Escorted To Portland
Outside the port, the vessel was
escorted in the channel to Portland,
powerful south coast naval base where
the major portion of the British home
fleet has been concentrated because
of the tense international situation.
From Portland, Admiral Sir Charles
Forbes, commander-in-chief of the
home fleet, in his flagship, the battle-
ship Nelson, led the main division of
the fleet out into, the channel.
Turning about, battleships, cruis-
ers, aircraft carriers and cruisers
formed two long lines through which
the Empress of Australia passed while
each warship fired a 21-gun salute
and officers and men cheered the
royal party. Squadrons of seaplanes
roared over the vessel.
New Camera
Snapis Entire
LOUISVILLE, May 6.-(A)-A new
Associated Press camera equipped
with a 60-inch lens-longest ever
used in America for press photogra-
phy-today scored on its first assign-
ment by producing one of the most
remarkable pictures ever taken of a
Kentucky Derby finish.
From a position in the stands ap-
proximately 800 feet almost directly
in front of the finish, this giant lens
operated by photographer Joseph
Caneva made a picture which provid-
ed a head-on view showing the entire
field of eight horses as Johnstown
More than 46 lengths separated the
winner and On Location, which fin-
ished last, but the giant lens showed
every horse in the race, with the six
lengths separating Johnstown and
Calledon shriveling into an appar-
ently insignificant distance due to
the angle from which the picture was
taken and exceptional depth of focus
of the big telescopic lens, which by
itself weighs 53 pounds.

Adult Education Intitute was
brought to a close yesterday with a
showing of educational films in the
lecture hall of the Rackham build-
The pictures were exhibited for
members of the University Faculty,
Federation of Women's Clubs, Par-
ent-Teacher Associations, school
teachers and executives and students.
Dr. Fisher Speaks
"The entertainment picture be-
longs in the field of commercial en-
terprise and has its legitimate place,"
stated Dr. Charles A. Fisher, director
of the Extension Service, in refer-
ence to the value of the cinema in
the instructional institution. "The
educational picture belongs in the
school; where, under the expert hand
of an experienced teacher, it brings
the world into the classroom.
Featured were the productions of
Erpi, Gaumont-British, March of
Time, UFA and Eastman, together
with selections screened by Harvard,
Kansas and Western Reserve univer-
sities. The films were shown under
several classifications including chil-
dren' films, education, health, lit-
erature and art, natural and physical
science, social science and sports,
each group being shown as a sep-
arate unit.
'A demonstration of a section of
sound film concluded the morning
program. The talking-film strip was
based upon original documents in
the Clements Library and upon ar-
cheological objects in the University
March Of Time Featured
"Much of the valuable material, in-
cluding original documents, art ob-
jects and rare books which up to now
have been of use only to those who
could come to the University," ex-
plained Dr. Fisher, "can through
the medium of visual education be
made available to the people of the
state and country."
Typical of the talking films ex-
hibited in yesterday's showing were
March of Time's "Cancer, Its Cure
and Prevention" and "Progressive
Education," Gaumont - British's
"Shakespeare," "Liquid Air" by UFA,
"Juvenile Delinquency," another
March of Time Film and a study of
Glenn Cunningham, long distance

What secrets the sky holds are probed by the great anti-aircraft searchlights of two of the U.S. battleships at anchor in the Hudson River, New
York. This view of rays spread fan-like across the sky gave a thrill even to- jaded New Yorkers whose interest in the visiting fleet has been so
great that 15,000 persons were turned away the first day of public inspection.

Fortunes of war altered the luck, Conversationally speaking, Princess Ingrid of Denmark found ready

Dickinson May Be Asked
To Give State Help
ATLANTA, Mich., May 6.-(A)-A
forest fire that had burned over sev-
eral thousand acres in three coun-
ties continued to blaze out of con-
trol late today despite the efforts of
more than 500 men.
The fire, which started near the
Canada Creek ranch, a hunting and
fishing camp 12 mile's south of Ona-
way, had advanced nearly eight miles
during the day.
Some of the 40 cottages of the
Canada Creek camp were threatened
by the flames. Telephone lines to the
camp were burned away and it was
uncertain whether any of the cot-
tages had burned. A few of them
were occupied by trout fishermen.!
With a prolonged drought increas-
ing the forest fire menace in wes-
tern Michigan, W. I. White, super-
visor of the Manistee national forest,
said Saturday that Gov. Luren Dick-
inson might be asked to declare the
existence of an emergency and in-
voke regulations to minimize the pos-
sibility of new outbreaks.
Carelessness by fishermen was
blamed by federal officials for a fire
which swept through 250 acres of the
lake country national forest Friday
before being brought under control.

They wore the masks, they said, because police had previously used tear
