WALKER INQUIRY
AIDES APPOINTED
Roos«velt Names Lawyers to
Assist Him in Studying
Seabury Evidence.
By the Associated Press.
ALBANY, N. Y., June 14—Oov.
Franklin D. Roosevelt has named Mar
tin Conboy, New York City attorney,
and former Supreme Court Justice John
E. Mack of Poughkeepsie to assist in
analyzing ‘ouster" evidence presented
against Mayor James J. Walker of New
York City.
The evidence was presented by Sam
uel Seabury, counsel for the Hofstadter
Legislative Committee. The Governor
said the ltwyers would digest the record,
but that the decision would be made by
him alone.
Additional acusatlons, alleging in
general lack of competence, have been
filed against the mayor by a group of
New York Democrats headed by James
E. Finegafl of Brooklyn. He was an
organizer of the "No Deal” party formed
in the last campaign to combat a bi
partisan judicial slate in Kings County.
Paul Block, publisher, issued a state
ment last night protesting "wholly un
warranted inference" he said Seabury
made concerning his relations with the
mayor. Reiterating that his action in
opening a joint brokerage account with
the mayor was prompted solely by a
long personal friendship, he said:
"You should know that I expected
and received no favors from the mayor
or city administration."

••The Ghost Train’*
At the National.
WHILE the hoots and yowls
and rantings and roar
ings of this season's
"Ghost Train" are not
quite so potent as they
were a few years back, this chilly
"comedy” of runaway engines and
bloodless engineers may still be
counted upon to
Clifford Brook*.
reduce most
spectators to a
kind of gellatln
fear. As pre
sented last night
by the Intrepid
National Play
ers, it smacked
of good old thun
dering "drama,”
and many mem
bers of the
audience were
observed to be
biting their fin
ger nails and
behaving as
though one more
snort from the
train and they
would be gibbering Idiots ready f or
an early execution.
This is the first of the season's
mysteries—and evidently the last—
and while it is a revival, it is
neither musty in texture nor in pres
entation. Few better mystery plays
have been concocted since Mr. Clive
ran this train all over Boston for a
record-breaking run. Hence there
is good reason for dusting it off
again and letting the National Play
ers take it "over the jumps.”
Then, too, it allows Mr. Clifford
Brooke a chance to hide away his
directatorial wand and to emerge as
a juvenile comedian (slightly past
the first flush of youth) whose con
stant words of humor provide much
of the salt there is in the play. Mr.
Brooke and Addle Hibbard, rollick
ing around from each other's laps
to the floor, and vice versa, are
worth more than a mild guffaw—
and the fact that Mr. Brooke eventu
ally turns out to be the hero is fur
ther reason for attending this well
turned out production. .
A few of the cues last night had
to be hammered out before the
cue-ee got them, and the language
was not quite so rapid-fire as the
rest of the week will probably find
it. Nevertheless, the train came in
at the right time, the shade in the .
waiting room of the station, where
the action takes place, came down
with a bang, the lights went out un
erringly and Jo, the bird, proved to
be Clara, the bird, much to Mrs.
Hibbard’s and the audience's sur
prise.
The players this week are again
all topsy-turvy. Leona Powers is a
Bkowhegan (Maine) Ophelia whose
mad-eyed croonings eventually label
her as "the devils grandmother";
Donald Woods Is an about-to-be
separated-from-his-wife young man,
who is restored to his love (lovely
Kathryn Glvney) as the curtain
comes to a close; Freddie Sherman
and Ona Munson are newlyweds
fighting the first battle of their lives
together; Addle Hibbard drinks her
pint of brandy with seeming warmth
and rolls off into oblivion until the
end of the play, and Raymond
Bramley, with whiskers, and Forrest
Orr and Burke Clarke without, pro
vide the basis for a plot which
should not be divulged.
Suffice it to say, that all’s well in
the end. and that the audience goes
home with the remains of those
chills and fevers which it had an
ticipated getting in the first place.

TWO STREET CLOSING
PROPOSALS ARE HEARD
Commissioners Consider Thirty
eighth Between Military Road
and Livingston.
Closing of Thirty-eighth street be
tween Military road and Livingston
street, on the highway plan, and also
of Patterson street between Broad
Branch road and Thirty-third street,
was suggested at a public hearing on
changes In the highway plan held be
fore the District Commissioners In the
board room of the District Building
yesterday.
The closing of Thirty-eighth street
was suggested by District Surveyor
Melvin C. Hazen because its eventual
opening would be too expensive. There
was no opposition registered.
A difference of opinion developed as
to Patterson street, however. The Na
tional Capital Park and Planning Com
iillssion desires this street closed be
cause it bisects property now owned by
the commission. Mr. Hazen objected to
this on the ground that Patterson
street would eventually prove to be an
Important traffic thoroughfare.
