Over the Wire

(February 23--By United Press.)

LISBON--Four bodies had been recovered and 19 persons still were missing tonight in the crash of the Pan-American Airways trans-Atlantic flying boat Yankee Clipper that exploded and sank as it approached its base on the Tagus River last night in a thunderstorm.

Sixteen of the 39 persons aboard the big plane, including Jane Froman, American stago, screen and radio singing star, were being treated for injuries. The Clipper brought 26 passengers from New York and one from Horta, in addition to its crow of 12.
