"If remnants of the British

"I looked up from my front
porch one morning and was
dumbfounded to see a big trans
port towing apparently broken
down planes at an altitude of
12.000 feet. Then I got my field
glasses and discovered it was a

"Each transport trailed a cable
to which five gliders were at

"It remained a mystery to me
how the Germans got the gliders

take-off method.
"None landed In Salonika.
Supposedly they went to the
Peloponnesus without stopping."
The merchant, an old friend
of mine, had Just left Salonika
but requested anonymity.
"I saw 1,500 British soldiers
grouped miserably in a dirty
prison camp outside Salonika
subsisting mostly on bread and
water," he related.
"Before Greek prisoners were
released on the day of Hitler's
latest speech some were kept In
an adjoining camp and shared
with the British food that civil

"The German guards kept the
British busy moving a pile of
rocks from one end of a field to
the other, then back again.
"Preceding the axis victory
march through Athens, Greek
newspapers printed a German
military notice ordering the
population to shutter the win

the axis troops were parading.
"Greeks believed the order
was given to avoid a riot because
of Italian detachments heading
the parade.

Great Britain may provisionally

seize enemy ships transferred to
neutral flags, it was learned au
thoritatively today, opening the
way for western hemisphere re
publics to operate freely the 200
odd foreign merchantmen lying
idle in their ports.
President Roosevelt's reaffirm
ation of the doctrine of freedom
of the seas, although primarily
directed against any axis plans
to dominate the oceans, was ex
pected in informed quarters here
to exert great Influence on Brit
ain s final decision.
As a belligerent, Britain has
claimed the right to capture or
sink all vessels flying the flags
of Germany, Italy and axis-con
quered or dominated countries,
including any such vessels which
may have been sold or transfer
red to neutral nations.
The 21 American republics
have taken the contrary position
that foreign flag ships Immobil

taken over and operated to pro

Portland May Get
Increase in Milk
Price After Inquiry
Producers said an increase In
milk prices might be ordered as
a result of the Oregon milk con
trol board's hearing on produc
tion and distribution, which
ended here Wednesday.
C. Z. Grelle, board chairman,
said there would be no price or
der, which would affect only the
Portland market area, before
June 1.
Spokesmen for producers said
that if testimony favoring a re
duction in cream prices was ac
cepted, it would partly offset the
probable milk increase, which
was rumored around one cent
per quart.
A chain-store request for a
differential in the price of milk
bought on a cash-and-carry basis
might leave store prices at their
present level despite a raise, the
spokesmen added.
