Roseburg's Annual Home and
Land Products Show -came to a
most successful conclusion on Sat
urday night. The crowd during
the final hours was the largest
of any of the three nights. From
every standpoint tbe show was
far superior to anything of the
kind Rosehurg bas ever held be
fore, and the success this year is
certain to work tor a bigger and
better event next fall.
The only regrettable Incident
of the entire show was the ruth
less depredations committed on
Saturday night by a group of
thoughtle-ej youngsters. Late in
the evening exhibitors started
tearing down their booths, and
this became a signal for a group
of boys and girls to stark wrecking
operations. Melons, fruits, flow
ers, and otber exhibits, together
with prize ribbons were carried
away, tables overturned, and a
great disturbance created.
Such a display of almost crim
inal actions was not only disgust
ing to the spectators, but cost

for some of tbe exhibit removed
or destroyed had considerable
value. Many of the- exhibitors
also lost their prise ribbons. The
disturbance was quickly quelled,
but It made a black mark on the
show which otherwise was fault
less. The program on Saturday night
was quite Interesting, being fea
tured by a talk given by W. D. B.
Dodson. manager of the Portland
Chamber of Commerce. Mr. Dod
son's talk was excellent, and was
greatly enjoyed by all who had
the opportunity of hearing him.
Efforts to secure the 'boys'
band to give a concert were un
l"'ling. owing to the fact that
many ot the boys had previous
engagements and were unable to
appear on euch short notice.
Prizes for the flower displaya
were announced as follws:

NF.W LONDON, Conn., Sept. 28.
When Informed by the Associat
ed Press early today that Ihe own
ers of the City of Rome bad an
affidavit which stated that thai
S-61 waa commanded by atudent
officers, Lieutenant-Commander H.
;A. Flanigan, executive officer at
the submarine base here, denied
that any one of the officers on the
submarine at the time ot the dis
aster waa Inexperienced.
Lieutenant Commander Flanigan i
In a alatement to tbe Associated
Press, explained the work of the
submarine school and gave Infor
mation concerning the alx offlcera
aboard the 8 51 at the time ot the
collision. The statement follows
In part:
'The submarine training school
for offlcera Is established before)
they are permanently eranaferred
to submarine duty.
"The atudenta of the present
class range from Lleutenant-Com-
manner e. w. strother. with 21
yeara naval service, to the ensigns
nf the clasa nf 1923. wltb six yeara
naval service Including four yeara
at the naval academy. ,
"No officer may enter the atlb- ,
marine school who has had leaa
than two years sea service ataca
his graduation from the naval aca
demy, and all offlcera, no matter
what their rank or experience,
must go through the submarine ,
school before being ordered to per
manent duly nn submarines.
"All the officers who were on
the 8-51. were fully qualified In sur
face ship duties, and to stand
watch aa offlcera of the deck. In
addition, three of tbe six officer
had considerable submarine exper
ience, and the other three had re
celved two month training In sub
marines.
At four o'clock no word had
been receded at the submarine
base Io Indicate that operations
had been renewed. A delay la
the return nf bnata from the-
scene waa expected because ot the
rough weather. . "
The temporary snspenslnii- of
reeciie operations, naval officers
admitted, waa especially disheart
ening al this time. Even if-any"
of the submarines' crew ItlH la
ii live, his chance for life Is rsnlflly
becoming more, precarious. When
Ihe H-r, I sank Friday nlghf It waa
raid that there was a 72-hour
sunplv nf oxygen. ' Thst supply

City of Roma Blamed.
"When the 8-61 was aunk she
was operating aa a surface vessel
snd there Is no doubt In our minds.
that responsibility for the collision
resia solely nn the shoulders of the
Cllv of Rome. From the reports
of her officers, our present knowl
edge of the rolllsion and the state

to us. It Is clear that the City or
Home either: , ,

nn the City of Rome Incompetently
failed to recngnlxe that the two
vessels were drawing dangerously
clnae until It was too Inle for the
City of Rome to take the proper
moves to yield to the S-51 her right
nf way due to the relative pos.
ttons of the two vessels, or took
Ihe wrong measurea when It was
seen that collision waa Imminent.
''There Is no evidence to show
or reason tn billeve that the offi
cers nf the 8-51 did not handle
their vessel nrnperlv, as was ex
pected nf officers of their training
and experience,
"It Is undoubtedly true lhat the
luhherly handling of the City of
Rome after Ihe collision, Ihe fall
lire of her seareblirhta and the
slowness with which her boats
reached the points where the men
from the R-M were In the water
was responsible for the loss of at
least three lives. The survivors
