passengers and crew lists established
Of the 93 persons aboard the Bal-
timore-Norfolk boat when the fire
broke out in the hold an hour after
she sailed, 89 were rescued alive. Two
are dead and two are missing. Six
survivors were injured, none seriously.
Shipping officials, the rescue work
completed, centered their attention
on the causes of the blaze which
flared through the wooden super-
structure of the over-night liner.
Almost at once, Capt. Charles O.
Brooks, a veteran of 35 years in the
Norfolk-Baltimore service and com-

of the Chesapeake Bay line called the
ship's officers to submit reports on the
fire which broke out Thursday night.
The Federal government will open its
inquiry tomorrow morning, when a
special investigating board, appointed
in Washington, begins a series of
hearings in Baltimore.
Federal steamboat inspectors visit-
ed the wreck today with company of-
ficials. The Federal agency ordered
more than 50 of the officers and crew
to appear at ,the hearing tomorrow.
Both men known dead as a result
of the fire were identified. They
were J. R. Polikoff, a passanger, and
a retired merchant of Aiken, S.C.;
and Charles Whealton, of Crisfield,
Md., a member of the crew. Doctors
here said they drowned when they
leaped from the burning boat.
Still missing are H. Paige, a pas-
senger whose address is not known;
and Cy Haynie, an oiler.
Of the 40 passangers aboard, 38
were saved, and 51 of the crew of 53.
Four members of the crew and two
passengers were burned or injured,
