With Strong Showing in Philadel phia, Leading Running Mate in Own City by 30,000. GUBERNATORIAL RACE SHROUDED IN DOUBT Victory of Cabinet Member Is Ex-j pected to Be Pleasing to Admin istration —Had Grundy Won, It Would Have Been Hailed as Re buff for Hoover Regime. BY G. GOULD LINCOLN. Secretary James J. Davis, far out in the lead, appears to have won handily the Republican sena torial nomination in yesterday’s Pennsylvania primary over “Old Joe” Grundy, the sitting Senator. Associated Press returns from 6,449 districts out of a total of 8,701, give the Secretary of Labor 581,335 votes to 373,395 for Grundy and 195J64 for Francis H. Bohlen, University of Pennsylvania law professor and a wringing “wet.” With a lead of 207,960 over Senator Grundy and only 2,252 districts to be heard from it does not appear possible that Davis can be headed off. It had been predicted that Davis would run ahead of his running mate — Francis Shunk Brown, candidate for governor—in the State, but that he would run even with Mr. Brown in his own home city, Philadelphia, was not expected. The racp of Brown with former Gov. j Pinchot is far closer than between j Davis and Grundy. With 1,446 dis- j tricts to be heard from, Brown's lead was only 24,337 votes over Pinchot. Phillips, .former member of the House and a candidate four years ago for the gubernatorial nomination on the wet ticket, made a stronger run than did Bohlen in the senatorial race, and ap parently cut into the Brown strength materially. The governorship is a prise political plum in Pennsylvania, and Senator Grundy, while he has had no open alliance with Gov. Pinchot, was as anxious to have Pinchot defeat Brown as he was himself to defeat Davis, If not more anxious. • Hoover Has Kept Hands Off. The victory of Secretary Davis, a strong supporter of President Hoover and a member of his cabinet, is ex pected to be pleasing to the administra tion here, although President Hoover has kept his hands entirely off the Pennsylvania situation. Had Grundy won, it would have been hailed far and wide as a rebuff for the Hoover ad ministration, not alone because Davis is a member of the cabinet, but also because Senator Grundy has never been an ardent supporter of Mr. Hoover, al though he worked hard during the election campaijn in 1928 to bring victory to the Republican ticket. The wet ticket In Pennsylvania, headed by Phillips and Bohlen, made a strong showing, though not nearly so strong as its adherents claimed for it yesterday. Phillips, when he was a candidate for the Republican nomination for governor in 1926, re ceived approximately 72,000. The re turns so far received indicate he will receive 250,000 or more votes when all are in, or more than three times what he received four years ago. However, in that year he was opposed by Gov. Fisher, a dry, and Biddleman. the Vare can didate, and regarded as a wet. This (Continued on Page 2, Column 2.) MACNIDER NAMED FOR CANADIAN POST Former Assistant Secretary of War Appointed to Min istry. By the Associated Pres*.

A few weeks ago the Senator Issued a statement here bitterly assailing the former Legion commander, who, he declared, was trying to con trol the lowa senatorial election. Brookhart could not be reached today when MacNider’s selection for the Canadian post became known.

RETIREMENT BILL GETS HOUSE 01 Conference Report Approved Soon After Agreement Is Signed by Conferees. The House this afternon approved the conference report on the retirement bill presented by Chairman Lehlbach, which was signed by five of the six conferees, Senators Dale, Couzens, Mc- Kellar and Representatives Lehlbach and Smith. Representative Jeffers, Democrat, of Alabama did not sign the conference report. Representative Lehlbach asked unan imous consent of the House to have printed following the report a statement by Senator McKellar, which was a con dition precedent to. his signing the re port. The House acted after Senate and House . conferees had agreed on the measure this morning. Two More Changes. Two more last-minute changes were made in the bill at the conference to day. One provides that no annuity shall exceed three-fourths of the aver age compensation received by the em ploye during the last five years of serv ice. Before the adoption bf this amend ment the bill provided that no annuity | should exceed the compensation. This I change, it was said, would curtail | slightly the amount of increase for I some of those already on the retired list, who retired on low salaries. The only other change in the agree ment made this morning was to fix July 1 as the date when the new retirement would go into effect. The previous provision gras that it would go into ef fect in the second month following its enactment. The change merely means that if the bill becomes a law after' 1 June 1 it could still go into effect at the opening of the fiscal year on July 1. whereas under the former wording it would not take effect until August. , McKellar Wants to Explain. Representative Lehlbach said that Senator McKellar. Democrat, of Ten nessee, expressed a desire to sign the report with reservations and to embody In the report a statement explaining his views. Mr. Lehlbach explained that this could not be done under rules governing con ferences, but Mr. Lehlbach proposed that unanimous consent be requested when the report is submitted to have the statement of Senator McKellar printed in the Congressional Record immediately, following the report. The indications were that this would be agreeable. ' CAPONE VAGRANCY CHARGE DISMISSED Gang Chief and Associate Freed When Judge Finds Prosecu tion Did Not Make Case. By the Associated Press. . MIAMI, Fla., May 21. —Charges of vagrancy against “Scarface” A1 Ca pone, Chicago gang chief, and Albert Prignano, alleged to be a Capone gangster, were dismissed in Miami Municipal Court today by Judge Frank B. Stoneman. The dismissal came after Chief of Police Guy B. Reeve and Detective Chief L. C. Scarboro testified concern ing their arrest at a fight airena Mon day night, in the third chapter of Miami's official attempt to drive the gangsters from the community. Vincent C. Oiblin, Capone’s attorney, moved for dismissal of the case as Ca pone and Prignano were arraigned on the ground that they had not been charged with an offense. This was de nied. but a similar motion offered by Glblln, after testimony of two officers, on the ground that the city had not made a case against Capone and Prig nano. was granted. His next scheduled court appearance is June 10 at a continued hearing of padlock proceedings instituted against his palatial home on Palm Island, Miami Beach. Police, however, would not say that the June 10 appearance will not be preceded by other court actions, Inas much as the order of Mayor C. H. Reeder and City Manager F. H.

ZEPPELIN PASSES CANARY ISLANDS ON OCEAN FLIGHT Graf Near Cape Verde Group, With Favorable Condi tions Aiding Cruise. BIG CRAFT NOT EXPECTED TO REACH EQUATOR TODAY Dispatches From Ship Indicate All Well on Board as Hop Continues. PORTO PRAIA, Cape Verde Is lands, May 21 (/P). —The dirigible Graf Zeppelin passed over this place this afternoon. .By the Associated Press. The Graf Zeppelin passed the Canary Islands today and nosed stead ily southwest in a line almost parallel with the African Coast toward the Cape Verde Islands. Her course was shaped for the Equator, with little chance, however, of attaining that goal today. Her last reported position was 500 miles northeast of the Cape Verde Is lands, 200 miles due west of Villa Cis neros, Africa. The British steamship Accra picked her up at 8:20 a.m. G. M. T. (3:20 a.m. E. S. T.), and relayed the news by the German steamer Sierras Cordoba to the Associated Press at London. Dispatches from all sources indicated that all was well on the Graf and that, following her charted course as nearly , as possible, she was averaging about 50 miles an hour toward her destina tion at Pernambuco, Brazil. EQUATOR TO BE TEST. Climatic Conditions There New Problem For Graf Zeppelin. LAS PALMAS. Canary Islands, May 21 (A*).—The Graf Zeppelin, flying from Seville, Spain, to Pernambuco, Brazil, today pushed steadily across the East Atlantic toward the Equator, where the high temperatures and unusual climatic conditions are expected to subject it to one of its severest tests. There were three groups of land between it and its goal, the Cape Verde 1 Islands, 850 miles southwest from the Canary Islands, which the Graf passed : before dawn today: St. Paul Islet, a mere speck in the middle of the Atlan tic, and Fernando do Noronha, Just east of Pernambuco. Delayed already by contrary winds, it was expected that the dirigible might suffer other delays in veering out of the path of local storms which beset the tropical area and in taking advantage of what winds the area might•ff«r ; There were, besides, other technical problems connected with operation of a balloon which now confront the ship's master, Dr. Hugo Eckener, for the first time.

TRACTION MERGER BILL IS DEFEATED BY HOUSED! BODY , Hull’s Motion to Postpone Action Indefinitely Is Passed, 11 to 3. I TWO-CENT CAR FARE BILL FOR PUPILS PROMISED l Committee Members Go on Record Commending Noonan for Effort! to Aid Children. The bill to merge the street car companies went down to defeat today when the House District committee, which had the bill in charge, voted 11 to 3 to postpone consideration in , definitely. Practically a full committee was present when the vote was taken and the committee room was crowded with spectators, although there were no representatives of either the street car concerns or the Public Utilities Commission present. These were all at the District Supreme Court waiting for the argument on the 10-cent car fare case. That case has been delayed since Monday, but it was said this morning that it would come up tomorrow. No Debate on Motion. As soon as the committee was called to order today, Acting Chairman Clar ence McLeod, Republican, of Michigan, called up the merger bill. Representa tive Hull, Republican, of Wisconsin, moved that consideration be postponed indefinitely. There was no debate. Seven Republicans Joined the four Democrats present in defeating the bill. Three Republicans voted against Mr. Hull’s motion. Those in favor of the i motion were: Republicans, Lampert, Wisconsin; Hall, Indiana; Blackburn, Kentucky; Sullivan, Pennsylvania; Pal mer, Missouri; McClintock, Ohio, and Hull, Wisconsin. Democrats. Norton, ; New Jersey; Palmisano, Maryland; Tar ' ver, Georgia, and Patman, Texas. Those voting against the motion, all : Republicans, were Bowman, West Vir ' ginia; Reid, Illinois, and Stalker, New York. After the vote Mr. McLeod announced ; that he would introduce a bill to reduce J car fare for school children to 2 cents separately from the merger bill. The 2-cent school children clause was one of the controversial features of the merger bill. This was strongly urged by John J. Noonan, a former stock holder in the Washington Railway A Electric Co. After the vote was taken several of the committee members asked to be recorded as warmly com- Charged Stock Jobbing Scheme. Although no reference was made to it today. Mr. Hull conducted his fight against the merger on the proposition that it wss a stock Jobhing scheme sponsored by the North American Co. , of New York, which owns the majority of the voting stock of the Washington Railway * Electric Co. and also owns ’ some stock in the Capital Traction Co. 1 When informed of the actipn of the committee. John H. Hanna, president of the Capital Traction Co., said that ; the committee’s action was what he had ‘‘more or less expected." He said that the action of the committee would not make any difference in the street car outlook here as far as he could tell. Further than that he would not comment. William F. Ham, president of the Washington Railway A Electric Co., said: “I guess I’d better not comment on that.” CHEF WHO SURPRISES BANDITS IS SHOT DOWN Chicagoan Enters Room as Gun men Line Up Proprietor and Customers Against Bar.

PUPILS DIFFER ON CHARGE OF SCHOOL IMMORALITY Survey Reveals Boys and Girls as Much at Odds Over Flaming Youth Allegation as Elders. Publicists, parents and politicians who discourse and differ on immorality and drinking among high school stu dents apparently can find no referee for their debates in the boys and girls themselves. For the youngsters are almost as much at odds over the flaming youth allegation as their ciders. A survey of Washington high schools, conducted secretly under a cloak of confidence which assured the students that anything they might say would not be used against them, has pro duced opinions as far apart as the Poles. One youngster bVands the popu lar chargee against his generation as “myths,” while another, in the same school, asserts phlegmatically that “lm- 1 MOORE BILL Ol’D BY HOUSE GROUP Measure Probably Will Come Up for Vote on. Mo nday. The House District committee today ordered a favorable report on the Moore bill authorising the creation of a com mission to study the expenses of the District of Columbia and to make periodic reports to Congress as to what would constitute a fair amount for the Federal Government to pay. Favorable action on this measure was assured yesterday when Representative Moore of Virginia, - ponsor of the meas ure, appeared before a special meeting of the District committee, at which Chairman Simmons of the subcom mittee on District appropriations was the only opponent. This measure probably will come up for a vote in the House next Monday, which House Leader Tllson has prom ised as the District day to clean up all District measures 'awaiting action in , the House. Only Two Votes Against Bill. Only two members of the House com -1 mit tee today voted againßt favorably reporting the Moore bill. These were Representatives Stalker. Republican, of New York and Tarver, Democrat, of Georgia. Those who voted in favor were Representatives Reid, Illinois; Bowman, West Virginia: Lampert, Wis consin; Hall. Indiana; Blackburn, Ken tucky; Palmer, Missouri; McClintock, Ohio; Hull, Wisconsin, all Republicans, and Sullivan, New York; Norton, New Jersey; Palmisano, Maryland; Hall, Mississippi, and Patman, Texas, all Democrats. Acting Chairman McLeod did not vote, but is in favor of the measure, as is also Representative Beers, Pennsylvania, chairman of the subcommittee on fiscal relations, who is absent from the city. When Representative Reid of Illinois, who made the motion to call up the Moore bill today for a decisive vote in the committee, was explaining the pro cedure, in an off-hand description, he told his colleagues and a large number of interested people from important organisations in the District, who were in attendance, that it was a decision as to whether the committee should override Representative Simmons or not. The Moore bill as reported was . amended in the committee to meet the recommendations of the District Com missioners that the commission on fis cal relations should make reports to Congress every two years, limited the expenses of the commission to $200,000 a year and eliminated a provision that the commission might at any time make other recommendations to Congress I relative to legislation and administra tion pertaining to the government of ; the District as It might think desirable.

CHAIRMEN HUSTON AND RASKOB NAMED AS LOBBYISTS IN REPORT DF PROBERS Republican Leader Is Said to Have Solicited Funds to Influence Muscle Shoals Legislation. DEMOCRATIC CHIEF’S WET EFFORTS BARED Robinson, Submitting Account of Activities of Association Against Eighteenth Amendment Also Charges du Fonts Aided Move. Chairman Claudius Huston of the Republican national commit tee and Chairman John J. Raskob of the Democratic national com mittee were the subjects of re ports made to the Senate today from the lobby investigating com mittee. Huston was dealt with in a re port on lobbying in connection with Muscle Shoals. The report, submitted by Senator Caraway of Arkansas, Democrat, chairman of the lobby committee, recited the efforts of Mr. Huston, when presi dent of the Tennessee River Im provement Association, to influ ence legislation in regard to Muscle Shoals development. Raskob was charged with aiding the Association Against the Prohibition Amendment in lobbying for' the wet cause. Senator Robinson of Indiana, an ardent dry and a Republican, sub mitted the report dealing with Raskob. Fond Solicitation Charged. The report on Huston went into the solicitation of funds by Huston from the Union Carbide Co. to be used in lobbying for the Muscle Shoals legisla tion and the use of these funds in stock market dealings. It made no comment on the incident, but merely laid the facte as disclosed by the investigation before the Senate. Senator Robinson in his report on the activities of the wet organizations, which was characterized as a partial report, declared that Mi\ Raskob hart had “an important part” in all the activities of the Association Against the Prohibition Amendment and that “few, if any, of the methods of lobbying were neglected by that organization. After declaring that the Tennessee River Improvement Association had been active in carrying on propaganda in connection with Muscle Shoals legisla tion, while headed by Mr. Huston and Col. J. W. Worthington, the report on Huston continues: Asked for Salary Payments. Col. Worthington was supposed to be entitled to a salary of SIO,OOO a year, payable monthly, but in more recent years, at least, his stipend came with no regularity, and according to such of his correspondence as came into the hands of the committee he was frequently in desperate straits financially. During the Summer of 1929 he wrote repeatedly to Huston and wired him asking for re mittances to meet obligations upon which he was pressed for payment, in response to which Huston made remit tances to him from time to time, having funds provided by the Union Carbide Co. to the amount of $36,100. This amount was turned over to Huston, on his solicitation, $22,000 on March 7, 1929, and $14,100 on Juno 26, 1929. The amount thus contributed was to be used in carrying on the work of the Tennes see River Improvement Association and represented, as told by Huston, the sum expended by the association in assem bling data shown thereby and in the preparation of maps in the possession of the association, supposed to be of value to the Union Carbide Co., which maps he asserted were sold to that company. “The contributions of the Union Car bide Co. were made by check of its president, one Haggerson, to one Moore, a business associate and confidant of Huston, and by Moore deposited to the credit, in each instance, of an account in his name with the stock brokerage firm of Blyth 6c Bonner of New York City, a trading account. These ac counts though carried in. the name of Moore, were in reality accounts of Hus ton, representing dealings on margin in stocks and other securities.
