Vibration Becomes Notice
able as Giant New Liner
Hits 32 Knots.
By the Associated Press.
ABOARD THE S. S. QUEEN
MARY EN ROUTE TO NEW YORK,
May 28.—Metal furniture rattled to
day as the Queen Mary's powerful
turbines pushed Britain's new pride
of the seas toward her maiden land
ing In America.
The slight vibration became notice
able, especially aft, as the Queen
Mary touched a speed unofficially es
timated at about 32 knots. It did
not. however, disturb the passengers.
There were Increasing indications
of an attempt to beat the Normandie's
record average speed of 30.35 knots,
If favorable conditions continue.
One of the liner’s representatives
reiterated previous official assertions
no record try would be made on this
inaugural trip, but an impression pre
vailed that this decision might be re
versed if favorable conditions per
sisted.
Officers said weather prospects were
good on the basis of present reports.
on tne nrst ieg oi tne irip, hcium
the English Channel from Southamp
ton to Cherbourg, the liner attained
a speed of 28 knots last night, with
extremely little vibration.
As she turned out of Cherbourg
early today and steamed west into the
Atlantic, the vibration at this stage of
the voyage had been less than normal.
In the opinion of some experienced j
travelers for a vessel of 80,773 tons.
The trip thus far was all one of |
triumph.
Given a spectacular demonstration
from spectators on land, sea and air,
the Queen Mary moved gracefully out
of Southampton after her start at
4:34 p.m. <10:34 a m. Eastern standard
time) yesterday and swung into the
Channel.
Today was the first of the four days
•t sea. The French liner Normandie's
record westward crossing was made

LINER CLAIMS RECORD.
NEW YORK, May 28 t/P).—The 16.
000-ton motor liner Batory of the
Glynia America line today claimed
a new record for the run from the
Baltic to New York.
As chefs and stewards aboard the
liner at her Hoboken pier made prepa
rations for a dinner and reception to
night Capt. Eustazy Borkowski, master
of the ship, talked modestly of the
maiden voyage.
“We don't hold the blue ribbon from
Cherbourg to New York," he smiled.
“But you might say we have the blue
ribbon of the Baltic."
The Batory, sister ship of the Pil
sudski, reached port yesterday. Her
running time from Gdynia, Poland, to
Ambrose Lightship was 7 days 17 hours,
not counting an 8-hour stopover at
Copenhagen. She averaged 18 knots.
RAIL PENSION PLAN
IS LAUDED IN COURT
Increaie in Efficiency and* Safety
Held Likely by Veteran
. Worker.
Pjr the Assoc'a ted Press.
A veteran railroad worker told the
District Supreme Court today that an
adequate pension system would lead
to "a material Increase" in the effi
ciency and safety of the Nations
railways.
Testifying in defense of the rail
road retirement law, J. Luhrsen,
president of the American Train Dis
patchers’ Association, said "the indus
try would benefit if we had retirement
at the age of 55 or 60.”
"We begin to slip in efficiency at the
age of 55,” Luhrsen said.
"The older men simply cannot keep
up the pace."
Justice Jennings Bailey was ex
pected to complete hearings next week
on the plea by class 1 railroads for
an injunction against the Railroad Re
tirement .Board and the commissioner
of internal revenue.

taxes, as against presidential requests
for $620,000,000 and $517,000,000, re
spectively.
As the result of a White House con
ference Tuesday (light, in which Pres
ident Roosevelt expressed dissatis
faction. administration forces offered
l new plan in line with the White
House ideas.
Would Repeal Present Taxes.
Designed to raise $622,000,000 of
permanent revenue, it would repeal
;he present capital stock and excess
profits taxes, retain the existing 1214
to 15 per cent levies on net corpora
tion income and put undistributed
earnings under rates graduated be
tween 25 and 45 per cent. It would
permit a $15,000 exemption for all
corporations from the undistributed
earnings rates and repeal the normal
Income tax exemption for dividends.
This plan again emphasized the
administration view that taxation
should force corporations to distribute
more dividends to stockholders, who
then would be required to pay both
normal income taxes and surtaxes
on the money.
But several Senators were up in
arms immediately, fighting any at
tempt to. increase the undistributed
profits levy beyond 7 per cent. So
bitter was the fight that one Demo
cratic chieftain expressed belief that
hopes of adjourning Congress next
week were gone.
“You can just kiss that idea good
by.” he said.
Senator Robinson of Arkansas, ma
jority leader, said, however, that he
was not “going to concede we afe not !
going to get through.”
