REFORMS IN CUBA
MAPPED BY GOMEZ
Plans Preferential Trade
Relations With U. S. and
* Seeks Internal Peace.
BACKGROUND—
r First Constitutional President in
two and one-half years, Miguel
Mariano* Gomez was elected by
Cubans on a pledge to tripe out all
* vestiges of previous dictatorship
and. provisional governments. Son
of a President (Jose Miguel Gomez,
■'1909-1913), he spent year in prison
, , with his father for revolt against
-dictator Menocal and later went
into exile in United States. Friend
ly to United States, he envisions a
prosperous Cuba resulting from a
prosperous United States.
’ HAVANA, May 21.—Cuba's new’
ifon.ctltutioiial President, Miguel Mari
ano Gomez, directed the island re
public today on a course of major
governmental reforms, preferential
trade relations with the United States
and peaceful politics at home.
Six hours after his inauguration,
Hr. Gomez outlined his policies last
night in his first message to a special
session of the Congress.
The Chief Executive, who was
elected January 10 to succeed Provis
ional President Jose A. Barnet, said
his message did not constitute a
“ritual,” but embodied the recom
mendations which "I understand to be
the legacy of the revolution.”
Plans to Grant Amnesty.
President Gomez mentioned plans
• lor a general amnesty for prisoners
mid exiles, but declared, "it is neces
sary that the morbid state of cruel
Insanity of killing each other shall
not return.”
In the republic's efforts to broaden
Its markets on a reciprocal basis, the
47-year-old President said:
“We must give preference to rela
tions based on the interchange of
products among friendly countries in
this hemisphere'and especially to our
great consumer, the North American
Union, which merits our gratitude in
so many ways for its reiterated, his
toric acts of benefit and help through
out our existence as a rebellious col
. cny and as a republic full of worries
and troubles.”
Dr. Gomez asked the Congress’ aid
In measures to effect equitable distri
bution of public wealth, restoration of
the republic’s credit, improvement of
public health facilities, closer rela
tions between capital and labor, mod
ernization of codes and laws and re
opening of Havana University.

and it will get better, but I have no
illusions about being able to please
everybody—that just can’t be done in
this business.”
Earnings Falling OfT.
The transit company is in the
seemingly paradoxical position of re
ceiving increasingly more revenue, but
its net earnings are falling off. In
fact, for the first three months of
this year its books show a deficit of
some $84,000.
The story of the company’s unsatis
factory financial position at this time
is shown in the following tables:

•Deficit.
An examination of these figures,
indicative of the company's increased
operations since the merger, show
that the main trouble lies in oper
ating expenses.
Believes Expenses Will Be Cut.
Hanna believes the operating ex
penses will be cut. but there seems to
be considerable reason to doubt whether
the company’s books will show a
profit without some kind of an in
crease in fare.
Net income in the first part of
1934, Hanna said, was good because
the decided increase in passengers,
resulting largely from the company's
introduction of the universal transfer
and the pass, was not immediately
offset by a corresponding increase in
expenses. By 1935 expenses In the
form of wages, additional men, mileage
extensions, etc., had increased mater
ially, he declared.
From the first three months of
1934 to the corresponding period in
1936, Hanna said, wages jumped from
$912,540 to $1,390,125. This was due
to the hiring of some 700 additional
men to handle the passenger increase
and an increase in the rate of pay last
year. Employes who received from 22
cents to 25 cents an hour during the
days of the flve-cent fare at the time
of the war, Hanna said, are now re
ceiving from 65 to 71 cents an hour.
Pass Cuts Into Receipts.
Another factor contributing to the
company ’s financial position has been
the unexpectedly wide use of the pass.
First issued in December, 1933, the
pass, according to Hanna, was de
signed to popularize the service, and,
incidentally, fill up busses and street
cars that were running without full
lnaris
The pass, however, accomplished
more than had been anticipated.
During the first week 29,000 passes
were purchased. Now about 82,000
are sold each week, and the company
estimates that each pass is used about
32 times a week. In other words, the
company transports about 2,624,000
pass riders each week at an average
fare of 3|/3 cents fojr the dollar pass
and four cents for the $1.25 pass.
At the time of the merger the aver
age fare was 7.8 cents. With the use
of the weekly pass, the average fare
is now about 6 cents.
Experiment Not Failure.
Hanna, however, does not believe
the pass experiment has been a fail
ure. Its use, along with the natural
Increase in population, has Increased
the number of persons patronizing
the lines to a greater extent than in
any other' comparable city. However,
it has also Increased operating ex
penses, and the balance between the
two seems somewhat disproportionate,
to the company's detriment.
Since the merger, the company has

spent more than $5,000,000 for new
equipment and Improvements and es
timates that by the end of this year
it will have spent more than $7,000,
000.
Eliminating track improvements
from the picture, this is as much as
J was spent for similar betterments
j from about the time of the war up
to the merger by both the Capital
Traction Co. and the Washington
! Failway t Electric Co.
The money for these expenditures
i has not come from operating revenues
j since the merger, but was made up
; largely of from $5,000,000 to $6,000,- :
j 000 on hand after the merger. Half
I of this came from the old traction
1 company and the other half from the
Washington Railway k Electric Co.,
controlled financially by the North
American Co., holding concern.
hvpendilures lusted.
Expenditures already made include
227 modem busses. $2,067,000; 20 new
street cars, $362.00; new Tenleytown
bus garage. $330,000; track changes
for rerouting, $883,000; track renewal
and special work, $918,000; shop and
office additions, $196,000, and tools
and garage equipment, cables, etc.,
$303,000.
Among the new items scheduled for
this year are 35 new busses. $259,600;
new bus garage in South Washington,
$350,000; street cars and car im
provements. $317,000: track changes
for rerouting, $967,000; to complete
1935 track renewal program, $188,000;
1936 track renewal program, $600,000,
and rail-bus terminal, $20,000.
As of last Monday, the company
was operating 358 busses and 581
street cars. In 1933 it operated 152
i busses and 487 street cars, although
at that time it owned 173 busses and
i 755 cars, the additional equipment
not being in use.
Connecticut Avenue Problem.
Hanna said one of the company's
big problems now is on Connecticut
avenue, where busses were substituted
for street cars last September. The
cost of operation per passenger mile
on busses, he said, is higher than on
streets cars and the Connecticut
avenue line has been losing money.
Hanna said, however, that he hoped
it would be possible to put it on a
paying basis in the future.
Discussing the question of improper
spacing of vehicles, with consequent
overloading, the company president
said two factors have been primarily
responsible. First, he said, the condi
tion is due to congested streets and
irregular traffic flow. This, he con
tended, results in busses being thrown
off schedule so that later busses would
overtake those delayed at bad traffic
centers like Dupont Circle, causing
the equipment to ‘‘pile up."
The other principal factor, he said,
has been breakdowns on the busses
themselves. He said the company
has had considerable trouble with this
condition but added that improve
ments are being made on the busses
by the manufacturers and the com
pany soon will have greatly improved
shop iacilitles for handling break
downs.
Drivers Create Problem.
Another factor, he declared, has j
been that some of the drivers, many
of whom formerly operated street |
cars, have not been able readily to
adapt themselves to bus driving.
"When we find a man can’t iearn J
to operate a bus." he said, "we take I
him off, but we do not Intend to fire I
any of our old employes unless we
have to do so."
Testifying at the recent hearing
before the Public Utilities Commis
sion, Hanna pointed out that the
company has 3,600 employes, includ
ing about 2,100 on street cars and
busses. The company pay roll, he
said, is over $5,500,000 a year, the
largest in Washington outside of the
Government.
Granting that there has been some
overcrowding of street cars and
busses, he contended it has not been
as serious as generally believed and
added that it will never be possible
to provide a seat for every passenger
at all times.
No Stinting of Money.
Concluding his statement before
the commission, he said:
"We will prove that there has been
no stinting in the amount of money
that this company has spent. 1 think
I referred to the fact that one of
the things that was hoped for from
the merger was economy in operation.
That, gentlemen, has not been
achieved, except so far as the general
administration is concerned. We have
more men In the mechanical force, we
have more men on the track force,
we have vastly more operators. Of
course, that is due to the increased
business, but we are operating with
more men in the track department
than we did before.
"In going back over these two years
I can see scores of mistakes that I
myself have made and that the men '
in the other parts of this company
have made. We are not perfect. When
I go back and look it over, when I
know what these men in this organiza
tion have done, what they had to
do. what they tried to do, and the
accomplishments that they made, I
tell you, gentlemen. I am proud of
the record that this company has
made in two years."

Dirigible Making Good Time
on Second Return Trip
to Germany.
By the Associated Press.
LAKEHURST, N. J., May 21.—The
dirigible Hindenburg headed back
across the Atlantic today, its skipper
hopeful that the winds which retarded
its westward flight would speed it to
ward Germany.
The trip will complete the second
of 10 round trips contemplated for
the Zeppelin between Germany and
the United States this Summer. Be
fore its scheduled return here June
22. however, the airship will make its
second South Atlantic crossing to Rio
de Janeiro.
Fifty-One Passengers Aboard.
Aboard were 51 passengers, one more
than the giant dirigible's normal ca
pacity, and a 2,/«-ton racing plane
belonging to James H. (Jimmy Haiz
llp, St. Louis speed pilot.
Twenty minutes after the last bus
load of passengers went aboard the
Zeppelin's commander, Capt. Ernst
Lehmann, gave orders to "up ship."
Taking off at 10.05 p.m. (E. S. T ), the
Hindenburg cruised leisurely over New
York, then turned eastward to the sea.
(It flew over New London, Conn., at
12:45 a m. E. S. T. today and passed
over Providencetown, Mass., at 2:25
a.m.l
At 5 am (E. S. T.) the Hindenburg
radioed its position as 42.54 north
latitude, 67.11 west longitude, or about
365 miles out of Lakehurst and 80
miles southwest of Capt Sable.
The Hindenburg was making 63
knots.

Lehmann said he would set a course
between the northern and southern
trans-Atlantic steamship lanes, hop
ing to benefit from the westerly winds
which delayed the ship's arrival at
Lakehurst until yesterday morning.
He planned no attempt to set a rec
ord. however.
Two Passengers From Washington.
Among passengers, as announced

here to looby for the MeGroarty bill?”
"I don't remember the exact sum.”
the witness replied, ‘but the object
was to get the MeGroarty bill before
Congress.”
‘‘And it is true that only $1,804 was
spent for that purpose?”
"I don't know.”
‘‘In spite of this balance, you sent
out from national headquarters what
was called a ‘Townsendgram,' didn't
you?”
•'I don't know .”
"And by sending this document
through the mails you raised an addi
tional $11,490, didn't you? And this
was after the Washington delegation
had gone home?”
"I don’t know. I haven’t exact rec
ords," the doctor answered.
"You don't know, do you, that your
national headquarters used the mails
to defraud in sending out this ap
peal for funds which weren't needed?”
"I don’t think there was any fraud."
"I told you I never saw that par
ticular appeal before,” the Doctor
answered.
"Well, maybe you will hear of this
fraud matter later.” Sullivan added.
The Townsendgram, sent to all
clubs, follows:
"Further contributions to congres
sional action fund greatly needed im
mediately stop Disastrous to our cause
if compelled to withdraw our forces
from Washington DC stop Consult
your president and please secure fa
vorable and prompt action for this
fund from your club stop Our records
do not show any contributions for
this congressional fund from your club
yet stop Strategy committee suggested
quota fifteen cents per member as
minimum stop Appreciate your send
ing amount available within one week
stop Several notable victories reported
for Townsend cause this week.”
Sullivan then read several bulletins
sent out by national headquarters In
which importance of the Washington
pressure was emphasized. Necessity
for funds to carry on this work was
stressed.
One of the bulletins, which Sul
livan claimed went out when only
$1,800 of the $23,000 had been spent,
said the fund had been exhausted.
"You did know something about
these appeals, didn't you?”
“When this movement started the
work was divided, I was concerned
with the philosophical presentation of
this program. I presume I knew of
some of these appeals,” Townsend
answered.
. The Towsendgram was signed by !
Charles H. Randall, chairman of the ;
National Strategy Committee, former j
Congressman from California.
At this point, Sullivan informed the
committee that Randall had asked to
testify before the subcommittee on
the West Coast and had told them
that his signature had been forged on
the appeal for extra funds.
Sullivan read the Randall testimony
in which the Californian denied sign
ing the message. He had nothing to
do with sending the appeals through
the mails, he insisted.
I "What were the victories to which
the message referred?” Sullivan asked.
"I don't know: they seem to have
been rather empty ones,” Townsend
said.
“As a matter of fact, that was a
fraudulent claim, wasn't it?” Sullivan
shot back.
“I presume it meant several Con- |
gressknen had been approached and
shown themselves more cognizant of I
the Townsend plan,” the witness re- I
plied.
Responses of clubs then were intro
duced in the form of letters from club
treasurers. Mo6t of them were able
to forward only small amounts—from
$5 to $25—with the explanation that
many members were on relief, in in- j
stitutions for the poor or in other
ways! unable to raise more.
Dr. Townsend was repulsed in his
effort late yesterday to insert in the
records of the House investigation a
12-page statement of the Townsend
old-age pension “philosophy.”
In addition to blocking submission
of the prepared statement, the com
mittee late yesterday also lashed out
at the doctor for his repudiation of
Representative John McGroarty, Cali
fornia Democrat, and subsequent
espousal of the candidacy of Senator
Borah, Idaho Republican, for the
presidency. He admitted that Mc
Groarty had done more for the Town
send cause than any other man in
public office.

satchel ivhich fires four blank cartridges and emits clouds of
sulphur fumes for several minutes after being snatched by a
robber. The bag has been adopted by a number of institutions
here. William E. Stockett is shown demonstrating it.
