PAPER CASE ACTION Resolution Condemning Pur* chase of Newspapers by In ternational Co. Is Tabled. By the Associated Press. NEW YORK, April 25.—After a long discussion, during which some delegates declared the matter was one for the Federal Government to Investigate, the American Newspaper Publishers’ Asso ciation in convention today tabled, with out a vote, a resolution opposing pur chase by the International Paper Co. of stock In newspapers. The resolution had been offered by Col. Robert Ewing of the New Orleans States, and before it was tabled had been amended to include condemnation of entrance into the newspkper field of Interests other than strictly journalistic enterprises. Despite the failure of the resolution. Col. Ewing said he was well pleased with the action of the convention in bringing to the attention of publishers and the public the entrance or projected entrance of paper companies, banks, public utility companies and similar en terprises into the newspaper field. Discussion of the resolution and the expressions that its content was a mat ter for the Federal Government took place almost simultaneously with the announcement by the Federal Trade Commission m Washington of the names of four witnesses who have been sub poenaed to testify at a hearing in con nection with the reported purchase of two Boston newspapers by the Interna tional Paper Co. In attacking the International Paper Co., Col. Ewing said, “any commercial concern cannot be fair as both a seller and a purchaser.” The colonel and other publishers pointed out instances of where the In ternational either has already acquired or has started negotiations for more newspapers. Officers to Be Named. During the convention the publishers were informed that the new machine for setting up type direct from news telegraph wires would possibly be ready in the next six months. , Officers will be elected during the day and an amendment to the by-laws to change the annual business conven tion from the Spring until the Fall will be considered. The Publishers yesterday extended a vote of confidence to S. E. Thomason of the Chicago Journal, and its paper committee, of which, Mr. Thomason is , chairman. A resolution approving "all the actions and activities of the paper committee’’ was adopted after a full afternoon of discussion of the paper situation, the International Paper Co. and the paper committee. Earlier in the day, Mr. Thomason submitted his report in which he said he would make a personal statement to the convention regarding criticism of his committee to the effect that the committee was influenced by the fact that the International Paper owns securities of a newspaper published by the chairman. Supply Question Is Worry. Alleged large investments in news paper properties by the International Paper Co. led to criticism of that com pany some time ago. Recently the com pany announced a new scale of prices end a new form.of conrtact and pub lishers have shewn great concern o\ er the questiori of paper supplies. Mr. Thomason told the convention that he was director and secretary of a large newspaper at the time of his appointment to the newspaper commit tee. He added that he twice had sub mitted his resignation and that both times it had been refused. He said the committee had done its utmost to hold down the price of paper and to keep the membership adequately advised of the situation. Several leading publishers praised Thomason and the committee's work in the present news print, situation and paid high tribute to the manner in which affairs had been conducted. To Fight Minnesota Gag Law. A resolution pledging the Publishers’ Association to wage a concerted fight to repeal the Minnesota newspaper sup pression law was adopted. The law 7 , passed in 1925, but not in voked until 1927, in the case of the Minneapolis Saturday Press, provides that any judge, without trial or hearing, can enjoin any journal which, in his opinion, publishes malicious, slanderous or defamatory articles. The Saturday Press was permanently suppressed as a “nuisance” under the law. A report on the law, made by a com mittee headed by Col. Robert R. Mc- Cormick of the Chicago Tribune, which termed the law “tyrannical, despotic, un-American and oppressive,” was ac cepted. , . After hearing an opening address by President Edward H. Butler of Buffalo, the publishers attended two closed ses sions during the day to hear the com mittee reports, which also covered open , shop, postal rates, printing trades schools, radio and traffic. The Bureau of Advertising of the American Newspaper Publishers’ Asso ciation. in its annual report, said that the past year had been the greatest in the bureau’s history. The report stated a survey "proves conclusively that every market supporting a daily newspaper Invites the careful study of ny>st na tional advertisers.” i SPECIAL NOTICES.

The wife of a Representative from lowa, and continuing to live at the Capital after her husband resigned in 1921 to practice law in Washington, Mrs. Good has taken an active part In social affairs here. She Is popular, and her home has been the scene of many Interesting entertainments. Mrs. Good has always taken an in terest In the women’s Congressional Club, both as an active member and an honorary member. She has been a worker in the lowa State Society and has served on many of its committees. Romance Began in College.’ The Goods’ romance began In col lege. Both attended Coe College, at Cedar Rapids, lowa, their native town. Marriage came shortly after their grad uation. Mr. Good studied law at the University of Michigan and hung out his shingle in Cedar Rapids. Mrs. Good read law books and took an interest in her husband's progress. And later, while not being a member of the bar, she came to possess an ap preciable amount of legal knowledge. Following the resignation of Repre • ■ sentative Good from Congress, up to [ the time of his appointment to the ■ cabinet, the Good family divided its time between Chicago and Washington, i But Washington is their real home, though they have an affectionate yearn ing for their native lowa. Mrs. Good is of the home-making type. She takes her duties as a mother CORPORATION TAX” COLLECTIONS GAIN March Increase Shown. $11,500,000,000 Profits for 1928 Estimated. By the Associated Press. Although income taxes paid by in dividuals exceeded those paid by corporations in the first quarter's pay ment of the 1928 tax due last March 15, Treasury experts yesterday esti mated that corporations had net profits of approximately $11,500,000,000 last year. Corporation taxes collected in March aggregated $282,088,000, a gain of $17,477,000 over the same month last year, although the tax was reduced from 131/2 to 12 per cent. Individual tax collections in March totaled $313,899,000, an increase of $68,997,000 over March, 1923, while the payments for the first quarter aggre gated $346,356,152. The Treasury had estimated that the corporation tax decrease would mean a loss of $150,000,000 on the same amount of business as was transacted in 1927. For the fiscal year from last June 30 until March 31 of this year, individual income taxes have totaled $763,304,114, an increase of $119,099,923 over the same period of the previous year. Corporation taxes for the same period aggregated $925,861,043. a decrease over the previous year of $45,299,986.

She has a keen appre ciation of the boy’s point of view and is a real companion to her sons, Robert. 11 years old, who is at school at Evans ton, 111., and James W. Good, jr., 18, a freshman in Northwestern University. It was her college son who remained at Mrs. Good’s side during the inaugura tion ceremonies and who shyly took her hand as Mr. Good was sworn in as Secretary of War. Mrs. Good passed much of her time house hunting following the inaugura tion. She realized that the Secretary of War must have an establishment commensurate with the importance of his position. She finally selected the charming sub urban home formerly occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Richard Porter Davidson. The house is near the Chevy Chase Club and has beautiful grounds. Mrs. Good is a fine-looking woman, with a bright smile and deep blue eyes. She, like other women of the cabinet, is very young looking in spite of her college son and the fact that she was married in 1894. Mrs. Good is a delightful conversa tionalist and her talk sparkles with humor. (Copyright. 1929 > DECISION AWAITED ON STOCK HOLDING Utilities Commission Will Consider Question Regarding Local Traction Companies. The Public Utilities Commission will consider at its next meeting the prob lem of the holding by two local street railway corporations of securities of other public utility corporations, ruled illegal by Corporation Counsel William W. Bride in an opinion submitted to the commission yesterday. Today is the commission’s regular meeting day, but no meeting has been called. At the commission's offices it was explained that a meeting probably will be called tomorrow or Monday. The commission has before it con flicting advice from two legal experts. People’s Counsel Ralph B. Fleharty, to whom the question was first referred, held that there was no illegality in the stock ownership, while Bride took the opposite view. Cites Anti-Merger Law. The question arose over ownership by the Capital Traction Co. of $50,000 se curities of the Washington Gas Light Co. and ownership by the Washington Railway & Electric Co. of $31,000 of the securities of the Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Co. Mr. Bride found the ownership was contrary to the so-called anti-merger law. which reads, in part; “That it shall be unlawful for any foreign public utility corporation, or for any foreign or local holding corpora tion, or for any local street railroad cor poration, gas corporation, electric cor poration, telephone corporation, tele graph corporation, or any other local public utility corporation, directly or in directly, to own, control, or hold, or vote stock or bonds of any public utility corporation organized under any gen eral incorporation law or special act of the United States, to do business in the District of Columbia, except as hereto fore or hereafter expressly authorized by Congress: and it shall be unlawful for any public utility corporation organized or authorized as aforesaid to sell or transfer any portion of its stock or bonds to any other public utility cor poration, or holding corporation what soever, unless heretofore or hereafter expressly authorized by Congress so to do.” ' Declares Holding Is Illegal. The question was referred to the cor- 7 ’ poration counsel's office for opinion March 18. After quoting the law, Mr. Bride’s opinion reads: "I am of the opinion that under the section above quoted the holdings by the railway companies of gas or tele phone bonds are illegal, except as ex pressly authorized by Congress. "I have read with considerable inter est the statement of the people's coun sel submitted to me by the executive secretory. I am, however, constrained to take a different view upon the sit uation involved—a situation which fre quently arises between lawyers.” WOMAN IS BURNED. Mrs. S. T.

Stafford, associate justice of the District Supreme Court, declared last night before an aifdience gathered in the Metropolitan A. M. E. Church in celebration of the recent act of Congress providing for the. erection of a memorial ouilding here as a tribute to the progress of the colored race.

VITAL ORGANS OF BOY FOUND TO BE ON WRONG SIDE OF BODY Maryland Youth, 17, Is in Perfecf Health, Works in Laundry. Physicians, Amazed, Study Him Closely at Hospital to Prove Transposition. A card, bearing the information that his heart, stomach and other vital or gans are on the wrong side of his body, Is carried by 17-year-old Paul Deeck wherever he goes to protect himself in event of an injury necessitating an emergency operation. Paul, who lives in Berwyn, Md., went to the Johns Hopkins Hospital for an operation several months ago, and the fact that his vital organs are transposed was discovered at that time. He was not sufficiently impressed with the dis covery to tell his parents, however, and they did not learn of the phenomena until two weeks ago. Keen Interest Aroused. The young man appears to be in per fect health and works regularly in a laundry in Branchville. V Keen interest has been aroused among physicians of Maryland and the District of the strange case. Two weeks ago a Berwyn doctor, who has been Paul’s family physician ever since he was born, but who did not sus pect the transposition, was making a stethescopic examination of the lad for the Citizens’ Military Training Camp which h« hopes to attend this Summer. Then he discovered that Paul's heart was on his right side and learned that his appendix, liver, stomach, large and small intestines, were all on the “wrong’’ side. * Hospital Doctors Half Skeptical. When he told Providence Hospital physicians about Paul they inquired, half skeptically, if he could be brought to the hospital. A visit was arranged PRESSROOM SERVES AS IMPROMPTU COURT Woman’s Inability to Ascend Two Flights of Stairs Causes Quick Change. Appearing at Police Court yesterday to testify against the driver of an auto mobile which struck and injured her, Mrs. Ella Brown. 1427 Thirty-fourth streets, was unable to ascend two flights of stars to the Traffic Division. Court attaches were in a quandary until it was suggested the pressroom would provide a suitable place to hear testimony. Judge McMahon, informed of the situation, ordered bailiffs and clerks to prepare the pressroom, on the first floor, for the session of court. Reporters hastily attempted to remove clippings and decorations that adorned the walls. Judge McMahon; however, interrupted their labors and court was held’in an atmosphere hardly in accord with the dignity of judicial procedure. A typewriter stand served as the magistrate’s bench, a dilapidated chair as the judge's seat. Witnesses main tained their dignity with difficulty as their eyes roamed about the decorations, that would have done credit to an eighteenth century jockey club. After hearing testimony of Mrs. Brown and David W. Evans, 28, of the 3300 block Wisconsin avenue, charged with reckless driving. Judge McMahon ordered the case continued until May 1. TEXAS RAILROAD STRIKE COMPROMISE IS URGED Hoover Board of Inquiry Makes Recommendations in Trans portation Dispute. By the Associated Press. A compromise in the threatened strike on the Texas and Pacific Rail way. under which the carrier and its employes would share equally In losses sustained by the latter in removal of their homes, made necessary by a change in the location of terminals, was recommended yesterday by the Emer gency Board of Inquiry created by President Hoover to Investigate the dis pute. While conceding that the railroad is under “no legal or contractual liabil ity” for these losses, the board declared that the change in terminals would re sult in a substantial saving for the line and that in its opinion the carrier should not “reap the entire benefit” and the employes be "compelled to bear the entire loss.” On three other points of dispute the board made two recommendations fa voring the workers and upheld the rail road In the third. Contentions of the employes that pooling of cabooses, ex cept in emergencies, was prohibited by an agreement previously entered Into was sustained, as was their contention that a recently established run of 249 miles between Fort Worth and Texarkana was excessive and should be abolished. An adverse ruling, however, was re ported upon the request of the employes that the seniority rules and schedules of the Texas & Pacific be applied to five subsidiary lines. 0 Vienna Communists Jailed.

So pleased were the doctors to be able to study Paul that they paid him for his time spent in the hospital. Paul himself says he fully enjoyed the ex perience and is willing to go back again. Such Cases Extremely Rare. "It was the first time I was ever paid for visiting a hospital,” he says. The family physician declares thaw while cases of heart transpositions are not unusual, instances of all the organs being transposed are extremely rare, and believes Paul’s ease Is the only one in the State of Maryland, pos sibly in the entire country. No ex planation of the cause, other than an embryonic condition, could be advanced. CITIZENS WOULD END D. C. TRAFFIC BUREAU Saving of SIB,OOO Yearly Seen if Superintendent of Police Took Over Duties.

Although official comment was net forthcoming, the impression in Govern ment circles today was that the second note from Canada on the sinking of the Canadian rum runner I’m Alone by a Coast Guard patrol boat, as delivered to the State Department late yesterday by Canadian Minister Massey, portends arbitration of the dispute under the anti-rum smuggling treaty of 1924. Neither the State Department nor the Canadian legation would commen*. however. Mr. Massey would only say that the note was of ‘‘moderate length.” All the correspondence between the two governments regarding the I'm Alone incident will be made public to morrow morning, and the plan is for this to be done simultaneously at Ot tawa and Washington. Canada's first note, making formal representations to the United States, was handed to Secre tary Stimson, April 9, after the Ameri can Government had communicated to the Canadians their official report on the sinking of the vessel. Mr. Massey yesterday conferred with Secretary Stimson for half an hour. GERMAN FLYER IN ARMY. Holder of Iron Cross “Buck Pri vate” in U. S. Service. NEW YORK, April 25 OP).—Jules H.
