. WASHINGTON, D. C., MONDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1937. **» PAGE B—1 GUARD INCREASED AT TERMINAL HERE AS BUSISSTONED . Attack Made on Greyhound Vehicle, Carrying 29, Near Accotink. *r SABOTAGE SUSPECTED; I. C. C. MAY JOIN PROBE i Engine Trouble Leads Driver to Belief Sugar Was Mixed in Gasoline. The police guard at the Greyhound terminal and garage was strengthened today after a bus from Richmond carrying 29 passengers was showered with rocks by three men, just south of Accotink, Va. No one was injured in the attack which took place about 2 a m., but the bus is being inspected here for evidence of sabotage. The driver, F. Bell, reported he had engine trou ble from the time he left Richmond at 9 o’clock last night, leading to the belief sugar may have been mixed in the gasoline. L. C. Major, regional manager for Greyhound, planned to ask that a representative from the Interstate Commerce Commission be designated for the inspection. The Bureau of Motor Carriers has never been con fronted with a request of the sort and It was not certain what could be done. Second Disturbance Here. The flare-up was the second in this area since the drivers were called on strike at midnight Wednesday by the * Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen in a dispute over wages and the closed shop issue. The first—Friday after noon—resulted in charge of assault I with a dangerous weapon against 11 men accused of beating William F. Dixon, a driver, who was pulled from a Baltimore-bound bus in the 1200 block of New York avenue northeast. This case was to have been laid be fore the grand jury this morning, but the United States attorney's office • said the presentment would be de layed until Wednesday. Mr. Bell first reported today's trou ble from a garage in Accotink, then gave added details on arrival here, Where the bus was ending its trip. He said he was running late because of the engine trouble, when a man In civilian clothes halted the vehicle at a side road below Accotink. At the same time, an automobile containing another man In civilian clothes and one in a driver's uniform, pulled out, hurling rocks, and then the three were on their way. > ioentity or Attackers Known. Mr. Major said headquarters here had been tipped off on the attack and that the identity of the men was known and had been furnished the police. They are strikers, he said, one hailing from Washington and the others from out of town. The only damage to the bus he re ported consisted of dents in the side and back. A bus following closely be hind took several passengers off the , first bus, to permit them to make connections here, but those destined locally completed the trip. Desultory picketing that has marked the progress of tne strike was re sumed this morning, uniformed men carrying placards parading around the terminal at Fourteenth street and New York avenue N.W. Police and plain-clothesmen, augmented by Grey hound police, are on duty there while a guard of like make-up is at the garage in the 1300 block of New York avenue N.E.. It was announced today that the • Greyhound now is prepared to furnish sendee to New York, through an arrangement with the Safe ways buses which are handling Greyhound pas sengers beyond Baltimore. Heretofore, the traffic beyond Baltimore has been handled by rail. INQUIRY IS URGED Check Up Asked of Drug Price Maintenance Groups.

Wirephotos. 1 But for Dictatorship, Not for Democracy, Poling Tells Audience. “Youth is on the march" today throughout the world, Daniel A, Pol- ; ing, noted dry leader and editor of the Christian Herald, informed Town Hall last night in delivering an appeal for the mobilization of youth behind par ticular tasks in the preservation of democracy. They are marching, however, in the cause of dictatorship, adding that he ; opposed a single youth movement for the United States. In this opposition to the marshaling of youth behind a single idea, he was joined by Dr. Homer Rainey, director of the American Youth Commission ot-the American Council on Educa tion, and Mrs. Eugene Meyer, both of whom were members of the panel. "We do not want a youth move ment in this country in the same sense as in other countries." Dr. Rainey said, “because there is a defi nite peril in it. There are a lot of anti-social attitudes among youths which require definite care in their training and education.” Mrs. Meyer added the opinion that a youth movement in a democracy is a menace. Mast Be Spontaneous. Dr Poling, taking as his topic “What | About Youth?”, expressed doubt whether a national youth movement could be achieved by adults, and be lief that it could only arise spon taneously from the younger genera tion itself. He described the regimenting of youth in the totalitarian states and the militancy of students in Palestine. India, China and Japan, and pleaded for understanding of the complex en vironment in which the coming gen eration was born. “They don’t write the books they read, compose the songs they sing or produce the movies they see,” he said. "They live in a social environ ment for which they are not re sponsible. If they make mistakes it Is with excuse and justification.” Dr. Poling stated three conclusions from his observation of the “march of youth” throughout the world: 1. They are marching at the call of a harsh patriotism, blood and iron, Garibaldi patriotism of which the essence is the Nazi cry that “The highest duty of German youth is to die for the fatherland. 2. They are marching against each other, continually preparing to defend their frontiers, their national honor, from expected attack by youth of other countries. 3. They are marching because of powerful personal leadership—Hitler, Mussolini, Kemal, Stalin, Chiang Kai shek, Sun Yat-sen and Quezon. Speed-lip Seen. In the panel discussion Dr. Rainey envisaged need for an answer to the problem of three and one-half to four million Jobless youths between the ages of 16 and 21, and deplored the trend to eliminate the youth of less than 21 from employment. ' "Industrial production would have to rise 15 to 20 per cent above any thing we have hitherto enjoyed in order to absorb the jobless youths under 21,” he added, deprecating the technological developments which are displacing human labor. “The 30-hour week proposal, and in fact all wages and hours restrictions on employers will result in a speed-up of technology which is just what is going on now.” Dr. Studebaker, who presided, en tered the panel discussion with the suggestion that modification of the education system is needed to hold larger numbers of children in school longer, and stressed that most young people who leave school early do so because it is unattractive, not because they are forced into it. He urged stronger personalities in the class rooms. Robert Fechner. director of the Civilian Conservation Corps, was a member of the panel. Beatrioe Forbes-Robertson Hale will speak on the women's movement next Sunday night at the Rialto Theater. Silver Trophiei Stolen. Six silver trophies valued at $60 were stolen from the Sigma Chi Fra ternity house, at 1312 N street N.W, some time between Friday and yes terday. it was reported to police by Milton S. Musser, president of Ep silon Chapter. The fraternity, which is connected with George Washington diversity, had won the cupa tarn ■porting events and the like. " ™ I IN D. C. TAX ISSUE Fruit and Vegetable Distrib utor Declares Business Is Interstate. For the second time in the past two months suit was filed in District Court today to test the constitutionality of the District's new business privilege and gross receipts tax. The first attack on the law was disposed of by the court without any ruling on the constitutional questions raised. The suit today was brought by Max Shapiro. 1309 Water street N.W., president of the local branch of the National League of Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Distributors. Declared Interstate Business. As in the action brought by Howard W. Berry, local advertising man, which was dismissed last week on the ground Mr. Berry had not proven himself to be engaged in interstate commerce, Mr. Shapiro's suit alleged that his business was interstate in character. During the year 1936, the court was told through Attorneys Alvin L. New myer and David G. Bress. Mr. Shaprio received approximately 325 carloads of perishable commodities, all from outside the District, and distributed a large part of these commodities in other States. He contended the tax constitutes a burden on interstate commerce and consequently is unconstitutional. In addition, he told the court, it has the effect of excluding local whole salers from the competitive interstate ■ markets by increasing their operating expenses. The tax, in reality, is a sales or transfer tax on a commodity, the suit stated, and as such is invalid as amounting to multiple taxation of a single commodity depending on the number of transactions through which it passes before reaching the con sumer. Tax Regarded Penalty. The court was told also that the tax amounts to a penalty on the man whose own capital is engaged in a transaction over his competitor who sells goods on consignment and receives a commission. The levy was described as retro active, confiscatory, unequal and dis criminatory. Asking an injunction against en forcement of the tax, Mr. Shapiro stated that certain members of the league he heads intend to refrain from paying the tax which will become due In about 10 days. Since the suit questions the consti tutionality of a Federal statute, it must be tried before a special three judge court. OLD BELL REDEDICATED IN GEORGETOWN CHURCH Returned From Aurora, W.

Charging a contract violation, the Journeymen Plasterers' Local No. 7 asked District Court today to enjoin Clarence Melcher, a contracting plas terer, from paying sub-contract wages on an apartment house construction project just over the District line, on Sixteenth street N.W. Through the law firm of Berman As Smith the union told the court It entered into a contract with Melcher and some 40 othpr contracting plas terers last August 6, fixing working conditions for journeymen plasterers in this vicinity. , According to the suit, the con tracting plasterers promised to con tinue to pay the prevailing wage of $1 an hour and to maintain a 5-day, 40-hour-week until March, 1938. Melcher is paying his journeymen plasterers either 75 cents or 87'2 cents an hour and working them 44 hours a week, the suit contends.

Female Tree Produces Red Flolly Berries By the Associated Press. When you put up your Christmas decorations and hang the holly wreaths in the windows and on the doors your admiration for the green foliage and red berries will be directed towrard the female of the species. For it is the female holly tree, Ag riculture Department experts said to day, which bears the red berries—the male tree produoes only a small yellow flower. Holly is one of the few trees that have males and females. This pecu liarity, the experts said, is the reason some persons cultivate holly trees and find no red berries. They have plant ed male trees, similar to the female in appearance.

Whelan. Tells of Installation. He testified that the telephone com pany installed a private line to Floratos’ cigar store at 922 Ninth street N.W.. which was raided March 10, along with numerous other alleged gambling establishments. In response to a direct question from Mr. Whelan, he said the company had installed some 65 such lines during the months which preceded the raids by special police squads aimed at crushing the Capital's bookmaking business. “Did you ever investigate premises for which application had been made for a private wire to National Tele cast?’’ inquired Mr. Whelan. “On some occasions,” replied the witness, who went on to explain that those occasions were when the rredit standing of the applicant was in doubt, or w'hen the premises previously had been raided. City-wide Conspiracy Charged. National Telecast, the Government contends, is headed by Abe Plisco, alias “Jewboy” Dietz, who is named with 31 others in an indictment charging a city-wide conspiracy to violate the anti-gambling laws. One of the defendants in the trial today was placed on the stand and de nied having anything to do with the alleged gambling joint. He was Ber nard Newyahr. He said he was in the place only once and that was the day it was raided. He told the jury he went there to place a bet on a race horse and added he did not see any of the other defendants there. The defense was expected to rest this afternoon and there was a possibility the case might go to the jury before the end of the day. On trial with Floratos and Newyahr are Vincent A. Marino. John A. Clem ents and Bem.ie M. Traub. The five are accused of operating a bookmaking establishment at the Ninth street address. A jury of one woman and eleven men was impaneled in the case last Mon day morning by Justice Jesse C. Ad kins. Assistant United States Attor ney Samuel F.

Roosevelt and Doris Duke Cromwell motored from the rolling hills of West Virgina today to Industrial Western Pennsylvania on an inspection trip of homestead proj ects and mining settlments. Mrs. Roosevelt and "the world's richest girl" headed for a homestead project conducted by the Friends’ Service Committee near Brownsville, in Pennsylvania's bituminous coal region. The Brownsville district, like some of the area the party covered yester day, depends on coal for its principal industry. There thousands of miners were unemployed during the depres sion shears, but in normal times smoke hangs heavy over the hills and coke ovens twinkle like fireflies in the night. Poverty and Luxury. The heiress to the Duke millions saw yesterday the poverty of a mining village and, in contrast, the compara tive luxury of modem, adequate life on a Government homestead at near by Arthurdale. Neither sight was new to Mrs. Roosevelt, a frequent visitor to homestead projects in West Vir ginia. Squalor in dusty, unpainted houses perched side by side on the hills over looking the mine pits greeted them at the little settlement of Osage, where sulphur-colored Scotts Run twists be tween the hills. There Mrs. Cromwell visited in the two-room shack of Mr. and Mrs. Otis Campbell. Campbell, an unemployed miner, supports his six children on W. P. A. wages and sends three of them to school, although they are un able to buy books. $5 a Month Rent. "We are supposed to pay $5 a month rent for our house, but we haven't paid for two or three months now.” the miner's wife replied in answer to a question from Mrs. Roosevelt. It was then that observers in the party noted that Mrs. Cromwell ap peared more interested in the pov erty of the miners than the plenty of the well-housed, adequately employed homesteaders, most of whom also once lived in the tiny, boxlike dwellings clustered about the mines. Earlier the visitors attended the tiny church at Arthurdale, where 20 de nominations worship side by side. They stopped for the night at a hotel in Morgantown.

GAMBLING j PLACES ALLEGED Addresses Listed by Prose cutor in Answering Gaming Conspiracy Defendants. Answering a demand by Abe Plesco, [ | alias “Jew Boy” Dietz, for particulars | of the gaming conspiracy charged in ; an indictment pending against him ! and 31 others, the Government today listed 136 addresses of alleged gambling establishments. These places, it claims, were linked with the web of telephone wires by which Plesco's National Telecast, Inc , is said to have supplied this city with illicit racing information. Dietz and the others named in the true bill, including five policemen, were indicted • after a spectacular series of 65 forays by special police squadrons last spring. Thirty-four other indictments were returned at the same time as the conspiracy true bill and charged substantive violations of the anti-gaming law. A total of 124 persons were accused. The list filed today by the Govern ment was in reply to demands by at torneys of Dietz for a bill of par ticulars. In the requested bill, Assistant United States Attorney Roger Robb : I stated the conspiracy alleged in the | | indictment "contemplated the setting j I up and keeping of gaming tables, j gambling devices and gaming places” at the addresses listed and at “divers other places in the District of Co lumbia the exact location of which is unknown to the United States at torney.” Many of the places listed have been raided, Robb said, while police have information that gambling was being carried on at others.

Officer on Way To Halt Fight Bitten by Dog A bulldog, which evidently was anx ious to perpetuate a family quarrel, expressed his objection to interference last night by forcing Policeman Mar vin O. Myers to leave somewhat faster than he had arrived. Rushing to a house in the 600 block of Sixth street N.W. to investigate a reported family fight, the officer was greeted, first by a growl and then by a bite in the leg. The quarrel was ended by that time, anyway, so Mr. Myers overcame a de sire to supply some real news by bit ing the dog, and went to Casualty Hospital to have his leg treated. “SPIRITUAL FRONT” URGED BY RECTOR Inclusive, Strategic Action Is Needed, Rev. S. M. Shoemaker Says in Cathedral Sermon. To create a spiritual front across the world, the church today needs the same kind of inclusive, stategic action as is needed when nations go to war, the Rev. Samuel Moore Shoemaker, rector of Calvary Church on Gramercy Park, New York City, declared yester day in a sermon in Washington Cathedral. Speaking on "The Church Has the Answer” Mr. Shoemaker said: “This country is full of people who are no longer in touch with organised re ligion. whose hearts are not cold to Christ, and His real cause, and His organized church, if we touch them on the right side. “The forces of anti-Christ have used the differences among Jews, Catholics and Protestants to banish almost all religion from the schools and from social work in New York City,” he said. “In our sentimental fear of stepping on somebody’s toes, we have left breaches in the line for the enemy to come pouring through. There are nations today where churches have been closed and burned because they did not recognize the enemy and combine against him in time. That can happen here. It will if anti-Christ goes on unchecked.” LT. COMDR. WILLIAM A. CORLEY. —Bachrach Photo.

By the Associated Press. A skull of one of the dumbest ani mals which ever lived was added yes terday to the collections of the Smith sonian Institution. The beast was a crested hadrosaurus, a dinosaur which lived in Montana about 100,000,000 years ago, Dr. Charles W. Gilmore, a Smithsonian curator, said. Although it had a head more than 2 feet long with a crest like the comb of a gigantic rooster, the hadrosaurus "had just about sense enough to eat when it was hungry.” Its brain weighed only one or two ounces.
