Secretary Surprises . With
Strong Showing in Philadel

in Own City by 30,000.
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.
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
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
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
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

Conference Report Approved

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
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

indications were that this would be

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. Whar
ton to arrest the Chicago gang lord
whenever he is found in the city is
still in effect.

Graf Near Cape Verde Group,

Dispatches From Ship Indicate All
Well on Board as Hop
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.
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

, Hull’s Motion to Postpone
Action Indefinitely Is
Passed, 11 to 3.
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

Those voting against the motion, all
: Republicans, were Bowman, West Vir
' ginia; Reid, Illinois, and Stalker, New
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.

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

Measure Probably Will Come
Up for Vote on. Mo
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

moral conduct and drinking among
high School pupils has been carried on
for quite a time, and is very true

There is a difference of opinion, too,
among the principals who helped engi
neer the survey with one claiming that
“drinking at fraternity and sorority
dances is not general and is indulged
in by relatively few of those present,’’
and another admitting there is “some
drinking at practically all of the dances”
and adding that fraternity and sorority
officials had told him that they saw
drinking “at every school dance they
attended.” Another principal said “it
is quite obvious that petting is more
or less common.”

Republican Leader Is Said
to Have Solicited Funds to
Influence Muscle Shoals
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
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. The
$22,000 payment went to the credit of
