Church Is Battered
By Confused Mob
SEATTLE, Sept. 18.-(AP)-Stones
thrown by vandals who, police said,
apparently mistook an ancient relig-
ious symbol for a Nazi Swastika,
shattered windows in the Japanese
Buddhist Church Sunday.
Ted Conoco, a resident there, told
police several men hurled stones and
muttered curses about "Nazi sympa-
thizers."
Therpriest-in-charge'explained the
Swastika on the church symbolized
love, life, light and liberty.

Liquor Capacity

Upon One's Size
AUSTIN, Tex.-W)-How much
liquor does it take to make a per-
son drunk?
J. H. Arnette, Texas State Police,
chemist, says it all deuends upon the
drinker's size and his "rate of ab-
sorption."
A small person, he explains, is
likely to be come "saturated" more
quickly than a big strapping fellow.
But the results are the same. Arnette
is in charge of the laboratory respon-
sible for making scientific crime-
detection tests. Among other exami-
nations he has one on inebriation.
One to two pints of whisky, swal-
lowed rapidly, usually causes death,
Arnette claims.

(By Associated Press)}
Alvin Bentley, '40, 21-year-old stu-
dent, was among the passengersof
the German liner Europa as she
picked her way across the North At-
lantic from New York to Bremerhav-1
en, Germany, late in August, with,
lights dimmed, superstructure cam-
ouflaged, and passengers and crew
isolated from the world.'
Flagship of the North German'
Lloyd Line, the 49,746-ton liner left3
New York at midnight, Tuesday,
Aug. 22. Her passenger list was'
small, consisted mainly of Germans
and German-Americans with a
sprinkling of American salesmen and
tourists and 30 British citizens.
Thursday night, Aug. 24, while
passengers in the lounge were dis-
cussing news of the German-Russian
r act, the captain summonec'. them to
the ballroom.
"I thought it was some sort of a
gag," said Bentley, who comes from
Owosso, Mich. "I went and got the
surprise of my life. The captain told
us that the international situation
woudn't allow us to stop at Cherbourg
or Southampton, that we might be
:shelled at either port and that we
would be landed at Bremerhaven and
taken care of there."
Ship Camouflaged
Immediately precautions were tak-
en. Lights were dimmed, steel shut-
ters were put over portholes and
everything but the running lights
were extinguished.
"The next day the weather and
water seemed cooler. I went down
and looked at the electrical chart of
the voltage outside the dining room.
It had been stopped.
"That afternoon a fog dropped over
us. I waited for the fog siren. When
it sounded it was a puny little chirp,
something you'd expect to hear from
a trawler, not an Atlantic liner.
"At night I could hear seaman
working all over the ship. The next
day I found the funnels had been
repainlted, the superstructure had
been camouflaged and its contours
changed and the name of the ship
painted out.
No Word From Shore

board and their luggaged labeled for
a concentration camp."
"The Europa was cut off from
ship-to-shore communication and
they told us they weren't able to re-
ceive anything either. That was the
worst part o fit. You couldn't find
anything out. I tried to figure out
our course. Best I could do was
guess we went on a wide swing that
brought us north of Scotland and
south of Iceland."
"The Germans took it easy. They
weren't worried although some of
their womenfolk were. The only
night they seemed jittery was when
we sighted a warship off port. She
looked like one of the big British
cruisers. She didn't do anything.
But when she was in sight the Ger-
mans .were pretty worried."

'The Arch' To Feature
Freshmen Engineers
A new campus publication-a
Freshman Engineering "year book"
with photographs of all yearling en-
gineers--was born last night at the
first meeting of the Engineering
Council.
Christened "The Arch," the booklet
will describe Engineering societies,
the Honor System, and Engineering
traditions in addition to the new
freshmen themselves-
Each freshman's picture will be
accompanied by information indicat-
ing his home town and a record of
his high school activities, according
to Bob Morrison, editor of the newly
conceived publication.
In addition to giving birth to The
Arch, the Council set Sept. 26 as
the date of its next meeting when
plans for a smoker and the annual
Engineering Ball will be discussed.

COPENHAGEN, Sept. 18.--(P)-
Premiers of Norway, Sweden, Den-
mark and Finland assembled today

lems amid growing anxiety occasioned
by Soviet Russia's swift thrust into
Poland.
Concern was manifest concerning
reports from Latvia and Berlin that
Lithuanian troops were massing on
