Questioned Dorman as to whether his
department purchased gasoline tank
wagons made by only one company.
Dorman raid all tanks were purchased
on departmental specifications and after
Inspection to show they were in ac
cordance with the specifications.
‘•Will you testify that tanks manu
factured by more than one company
meet your specifications?" Senator
Steiwer asked.
* No. because I do not know.” the
commissioner answered.
Dorman said he had no knowledge
that a company In which Kenny was
Interested had a "tank car monopoly ”
‘ Our information shows that there is
onlv one tank truck or car which can

> Attorneys for Condemned
Men Will Ask Executive
C’emency Today.
[ While preparations were going for
• ward today at the District Jail to carry
out Friday morning the sentence of
death imposed upon the three slayers
of Policeman Leo W. K. Busch, the
• events of the next 48 hours will deride
the fate of the trio of condemned men.
Hoping to the last for executive clem
■ ency at the hands of President Coolidge
to whom an appeal is being prepared,
the three slayers. Nicholas Lee Eagles,
, Samuel Moreno and John Proctor, pre
pared today to accept stoically whatever
; fate is in store for them.
Ready to File Applications.
Attorneys for the trio were ready to
day to file with the Department of
Justice separate applications to file a
petition with President Coolidge to com
mute their death sentence to life Im
prisonment. Meanwhile Justice Jen
, nings Bailey of the District Supreme
Court will hear a motion tomorrow
i morning for a stay of execution.
Even should President Coolidge de
, cline to intervene to save the men from
. the electric chair, their attorneys were
• hopeful today of Justice Jennings grant
. ing a stay of execution for at least 10
; days
[ The application for executive clem
> ency. upon which the three condemned
men are pinning their last hopes, must
; first go through the machinery of the
: Department of Justice for approval.
- Justice Bailey yesterday refused to
; hear a motion for a stay of sentence
to enable the President to act upon the
• petition, and with this undemanding.
1 he will grant tomorrow’s hearing, pro
-1 vided the petition by that time has been
■ filed at the White House.
Maj. W. L. Peak, superintendent of
the District Jail has received the death
, warrant and hes set the hour of the
, j triple electrocution for 10 o’clock Fri
! day morning He gave the necessary
instructions to the electrician to have

, The District jail has never witnessed

Company E Captures Title
for School —Last Victory
in 1914.
Business High School has retrieved
the honors held by It last in 1914.
i Cadet Capt. Israel Silverman yester
day afternoon led Company E of the
Business Battalion In the forty-first an
nual high school cadet competitive
I drills to win first honors and the ac
companying trophies with an average
of 93.6 per cent Business was repre
sented by two companies in a field of
30 competing units.
The honors were hard fought, how
ever. and Company E. Ist Regiment,
one of the 10 units Central sent Into
the field, took second honors with an
average of 95.2 per cent, under com
mand of Cadet Capt. R. Minor Hudson.
Decision Was Close.
! Less than 1 per cent separated the
three placing companies, and Western
! will sport the white ribbons of third
place won by Its Company H. 4th Regi
! ment, under Cadet Capt. Edwin S.
i Hartshorn, with an average of 95 per
I cent.
| A victory, which next year might be
. wealed rfs second only to the first place
I I winning company, was captured by
, Company G, 3d Regiment, Eastern High
School, which, with an average of 84
, per cent, made the best showing of the
t "rookie” units, composed of students
who entered high school only in Feb
ruary. Cadet Capt. Max H. Cohen Is
the commanding officer who whipped
for the'drills™ l **" int ° milltftry shR P e
Fourteen years is a long time to wait
for victory, but Business High School
has done just that. In 1914 Company
. E. commanded by Cadet Capt. Fred D.
I Conner, marched back to Business
proudly bearing the blue silk flag, from
| the staff of which fluttered the ribbons
; of the schools which previously held it.
; For one year only, however, did that
| massed arrayof silken streamers remain
j in Business' halls, for next year It was
; by another school's company.
Ever since then. Business has sent
its few cadets Into the field to drill hard
for victory, while its student body
waited hopefully in the packed grand
stands for the adjutant of the brigade
to notify one of its captains that the
flag was to return to the old building
; at Ninth street and Rhode Island ave
• nue.
Business Celebrates.
Yesterday, after what seemed 14 j
: years of constant waiting in those;

J adjutant. Maj. Benjamin Stone this!
year did take the notification to a!
! Business company and there were 16.- i
000 persons, oldsters and youngsters. In '
thet nark to witness the scene
Last night the celebration of the vic
tory began and was continued today.
Eastern, which came perhaps nearer
than any other school except Busi
ness to having a “first-place winning
company.” held Us big oelebration last ]
night, when after a "cadet and '
, athletes” supper had been served to ;
! 600 persons, a two-hour assembly was
held with the winning rookie com
: pany on Us stage.
With music and cheers galore to
carry the flood tide of emotions, East
ern's program was interspersed with
speeches by Maj. A. W. Maish. U. S .A.,
military instructor at Eastern, H. B.
Shorts, chairman of th- school faculty
military committee; H. Warner, princi
pal of the Hine Junior High School:
C. J. Schwartz, principal of the Stuart
Junior High School; Arthur Bishop,
president of the Eastern Home and
School Association: A. H. Gregory,
chairman of the «-hool committee of j
the Stanton Park Citizens’ Association,
and Fred O. Roblnnett, who command
ed Eastern's winning comnanv in 1903
The captains and first lieutenants of
the six Eastern companies spoke also
This morning, Eastern was back In
class, while Charles Hart. It* principal,
visited the Business High School
sembly to extend his congratulations.
Central celebrated Us capture of sec
ond honors with a cad**? simper last
night and another assembly this morn
ing. Capt. Silverman of the winning
Business Company E, visited the as
sembly to extend his greetings to the
Centra! cadet* and student* and he in
turn was roundly cheered. Following
the assembly this morning. Central was
back on schedule with only a few
m'-Mt*»s *a'cen from **n-h study period.
Western, with a third-place winning
companv among the six it sent to the
field, held its annual cadet supoer last
night. Som° Western students were
inclined to feel a celebration of third
place rather grim fun until they were
reminded that their company took
thl r d nlace in the field of 30 eomoenies
and then it was separated from first
j olace only bv six-tenths of i per cent.
, Its celebration was continued this
i morning with a student assembly, at
! which mu*lc and cheers vied with
j speeches by faculty members and for
' mer captains of Western companies.

Commission Anxious to Com
plete Preliminary Work on
Mount Vernon Route.
Work on the memorial boulevard
that is to link the National Capital
| with Mount Vernon will start as soon
! as the exact route la approved by the
I George Washington Bicentennial Com
; mission, as required by the enabling act
" passed by Congress just before adjourn
Moving with promptness, the execu
tive committee of the bicentennial com
mission has asked the United States
Bureau of Public Roads to submit as
soon as possible detailed surveys, on
which the commission will base its
decision as to the route.
It is not expected to take the Public
Roads Bureau long to prepare the data,
r.tnce engineers of the bureau have pre
viously assembled a considerable amount
of the Information needed. In a re
port to the committees of Congress
more than a year ago P. St. J. Wilson,
chief engineer of the bureau, outlined
the several routes that have been sug
gested from time to time and strongly
recommended a route near the banks
of the Potomac, pointing out that a
river route would possess exceptional
possibilities for a monumental highway.
Mr. Wilson Is ready to proceed with
out delay to compile the report re
quested by the bicentennial commis
sion The date of the next meeting
of the commission has not been fixed.
) but it is probable that a time will be
I set. shortly after the surveys and esti
mates of the Public Roads Bureau are
transmitted to the commission.
The recent session of Congress not
only completed the enabling act for
tills boulevard, which has been looked
forward to for more than 40 years, but
followed up the enactment of the law
1 by placing In the last deficiency bill
. an Initial appropriation of $3,300,000
1 to put the project under way.
Therefore, as soon as the route is
’ dually ratified actual construction of
: the highway can be started and will
I 1 bs pusned without delay, in view of
