Representative Murray Hulbert, New
York city member of ths River and
Harbors Committee, who was reelected
from the Twenty-first Congressional dis
trict, renewed yesterday his campaign
for ths Improvement of New York
harbor and Its, tributaries. He has
sent a personal letter to every Senator
and Representative emphasising Con
gressional dereliction In the past In pro

under an antiquated plan adopted lit

sixteen mile strait, connecting the upper
New York Bay with Long Island Sound,
Is nearly 50,000,000 tons per annum,
having a value of 11.500.000,000, be
