MOSCOW, June 9 (AP) Making a quick recovery from a mishap in the air which almost cost him his life and forced him down in a sparsely settled section of Siberia, Jimmie Mattern, Amer ican round-the-world-flier, sped on his way across Russia today and rested tonight in the little, town of Beloye preparatory to re suming his voyage tomorrow. Halting only onco on the way to Beloye from Belovo, where overpowering fumes from a leak ing gas line caused him to 'make a forced landing Wednesday, the airman made Krasnoyarsk in fairly good time. He remained there only long enough to take on fuel and to make superficial re pairs. No details came out of Siberia, either about the landing in Kras noyarsk or in Beloye, but appar ently the aviator was well recov ered from the nauseous effect of the gas fumes and his plane was in good flying order. An indica tion that he was trying to make up for lost time, despite the fact that he hardly has ehanee bow to beat the roandthe world rec ord held by Wiley. Post end Har old Gatty, was seen in the fact that he stayed in Krasnoyarsk only four hours and 25 minutes. (Beloye is approximately the half way mark of the 15,500 mile journey around the globe. Mat tern's aim when he set out from New York last Saturday was to beat the record of 8 days, 15 hours, 51 minutes set by Wiley Post and Harold Gatty. To do so he would have to be back in New Yoflc Sunday afternoon an Im passible task.) TO After four days of trial, the case of Frank M.

(AP) Swollen by heavy rains, the waters of the Columbia river and its tributaries flooded thou sands of lowland acres today, halted mill and construction ac tivities at several points, washed out several bridges and narrowly missed causing a loss of life. The upper end of Puget island in the Columbia, midway between Cathlamet, Wash., and Westport, Ore., was Inundated by a four foot wall of water when a 50 foot section of the protecting dike crumbled under the com bined impact of the rising waters and a high tide. The break came suddenly after all but one of sev eral farmers patroling the dike had retired for the lght, think ing the danger past. While there was no loss of life and but slight damage to crops on the island, as the waters drained quickly off, residents were in fear of a new flood with a high tide due early tomorrow. They were working feverishly to repair the damaged dike, lest a second invasion ot the river sweep the Island generally and destroy most of the crops. John Vik, the only on to wit ness tho break, said the 50-foot relief committee, and engineering members of the state committee. Wilcox will leave tomorrow night for the national capital to attend a meeting there next Wed nesday of the heads of relief com mittees in the several states. He will carry with him plans for pub lic works projects for Oregon that total $118,000,000. They repre sent all the projects suggested to Governor Meier by state and coun ty officials. The Oregon relief committee head will call on J. M. Devers, at torney for the Oregon state high way commission who is already at Washington. The governor and Wilcox pointed out that they do not ex pect to see Oregon get as much as $118,000,000, but that the state wants to be in a position to get its full share of the money to 1 b& expended under the national public works program.

J., June 9. (AP) Ten persons were reported killed and several others are believed to have been fatally burned in an explosion to night that wrecked the Atlantic Pyroxylin Waste company, dealers in celluloid scrap at 31S River Road.

Quicksand formations at the base of the dike were believed respon sible for the collapse. The Columbia rose nearly a foot In 24 hours to a stage of 15.2 feet at Longview. Wash.. the highest since 1925. The Cow litz river at Kelso. Wash., rose a foot and a half in 24 hours to a stage of 17.8 feet. Officials at the Weyerhaeuser mill at Long view said it was probable logging operations would close for a day or two as tracks over which logs are brought to the mill ponds were under water. Enough logs were tn the mill ponds, however, to keep the mills operating until the crest of the high water has passed, officials said, and the stream was not yet high enough to threaten operation ot the mills. Those farmers in the Vancou ver, Wash., district who had not retreated with their dairy herds to higher land earlier in .the week, were still isolated today. They were keeping their cattle in the barns and were bringing in needed supplies by boat. The dikes were still holding on the Oregon side in the Portland area,- but guards were being con tantly maintained. CELLULOID PLAN Ending PUBLIC IRKS BILLUPPROVED SMS SALE TAX Tax Exemption on Federal Bonds Revoked; Income And gas Levies up Vote 57 to 24 on Passage; Industry Regulation one Key Section By D. HAROLD OLIVER WASHINGTON, Julie 9. ( AP) Forming an impenetrable cor don around the major provisions of the industrial bill, the demo cratic majority brought the ad ministration's business recovery measure through the senate to night in virtually the same form as it had come to the floor. Driving back amendment after amendment, the administration forces marched straight ahead to the final rote which sent the bill back to the house for agreement to amendments. The bill is the last major measure of the presi dent's special session program. The whirlwind finish at the end oi more than a twelve-hour session give a final vote for the bill of 57 ayes to 24 against, vir tually the same count by which the senate only an hour before had rejected the sales tax as a method of raising the necessary1 funds to finance the $3,300,000. 000 public works section. Another key section of the bill provides for the regulation of in dustry through trade agreements to be worked out by the majority of the plants In an industry, with various committees of labor and industry and the government to pass upon varying phases of th code. These woind cover working hours, prices and output, with the president to have the authority to license those branches of ta industry that fall to conform to the agreements worked eut by the jiajority. The greatest changes In' the long day and night session came as the senate bore down into the taxing section. In rapid succes sion it voted for throwing income tax returns open to public Inspec tion and then lifted the exemp tion that thus far has held tax free the incon e from securities of the federal, state and muni cipal governments. As the measure went back to the house, one of the principal differences in the form in which it came from that branch lay in the taxation provisions. The house had voted to raise the rates on Income, in addition to lifting the present levies on gasoline. Voicing the belief that indus try should bear a greater part of the burden for financing the activities of the measure. Chair man Harrison of the senate fi nance committee obtained agree ment to a plan for putting addi tional taxes on corporations. The Day in Washington By the Associated Press The senate passed the admlav lstnuion industrial recovery bill in night session after re jecting sales tax as a method for raising funds to finance $3, 300,000,000 public works sec tion.
