PLANS NEW HOME

tion to Move Into Rocke
feller Center.
By the Associated Press.

t*f the units included in the program
recently announced by Rockefeller
Center. The Associated Press will
occupy four floors in the 15-story

Increased Needs.
The quarters selected provide for
the Immediate needs of steadily in
creasing srope of the Associated Press
news, news photo, feature and sup
plemental services to more than 1.400
newspaper members. The character
of the press association's work,
together with the requirements of its
mechanical, laboratory and transmis
sion facilities, involved engineering
problems that necessitated far-reach
ing solutions. Accommodations have
been made for the installation of
every phase of the organization's
activities, including printing and
other equipment used in the produc
tion of some departments of the
service.
The building site is the north block
bf the center, Fiftieth and Fifty-first
streets, overlooking the plaze between
the Music Hall and the International
Building.
Excavations Already Made.
The property has been excavated
•tnce 1933 and a system of foundation
girders, already in place, enables the
erection of steel immediately. The
construction contract, just announced,
has been awarded to Hegeman-Harris
On., Ine., which built the towering
R. C. A. structure, the cluster of
buildings housing the School of Busi
ness Administration of Harvard Uni
versity, the Memorial to the Unknown
Soldier at Washington, the New York
Daily News Building and many others
here and abroad.
Architects of the Associated Press
Building were Reinhard & Hofmeis
ter, Corbett A: MacMurray, Wallace
K. Harrison and J. Andre Fouilhoux.

LAUNDRY IS OPENED
IN SPITE OF STRIKE
Polioe Detail on Duty—12 Driv
ers to Be Replaced—Truck
Damage Probed.
A polioe detail was on duty this 1
morning when the Dupont Laundry, ■
2535 Sherman avenue N.W., opened j
for business with 12 truck drivers on ;
strike.
Investigation was under way, mean
while, to determine the identity of
persons who broke into the laundry
garage Saturday night and disabled
17 trucks by cutting ignition wires and
breaking the gas lines. The trucks
were repaired yesterday.
J. N. Fisher, manager of the laundry,
said other employes were replacing the
etriking drivers today. According to
his version, the strikers belong to a
newly organized union affiliated with
the American Federation of Labor and
are seeking only union recognition.
"I'm willing to recognize them," he
aaid, "but they didn't give me much
tfme to consider. They gave me until
7 a.m. today to sign a contract, and
nobody showed up this morning.”
Five patrolmen were on duty when
the place opened. There were no
strikers on hand for picketing and
later the detail was reduced to a lone
efflcer.
Inspector L. I. H. Edwards issued to
the Police Department orders to "give
special attention to vehicles of the
Dupont Laundry and to prevent dam
age to or interference with them.”
C. C. C. WORKER LOST
Youth Handicapped by Inability
to Speak English.
Handicapped by his inability to
•peak much English, and not being
able to read or write it, a 21-year-old
Civilian Conservation Corps worker
wandered through the Capitol's cor
ridors tor an hour before he found
aid yesterday when ha became sep
arated from the Camp Harwood,
Annapolis, Md., C. C. C. touring
party.
A Capitol employe finally directed
the youth, Pasquale Carfagno, to the
guard room. Officers there phoned
the metropolitan police and he was
taken to police headquarters, where
he later was picked up by a camp
truck. ,

Maritime Unit Says Opera
tors Ignore Needs in Face
of Present Conditions.
B? the Associated Press.
The Maritime Commission reported
to Congress today that private ship
operators, despite the urgent need
for new vessels, "hestitate in the face
of the present labor situation.”
"Chaotic labor conditions, signalized
by demands of the crews, ‘sit-down’
and ‘quickie’ strikes, and slipshod
performance of duties are character
istic of the industry,” the commission
said in a report reviewing its work
for the year ending last. October 25.
"No lasting cure will be effected
until the jurisdictional strife now
prevalent in maritime labor is termi
nated and a more co-operative work
ing arangement is reached by the
unions and the ship operators.”
Algic Incident Cited.
Lack of order and discipline on
board ship, the commission said, "was
sharply focused by the Algic in
cident, in which the refusal of the
seamen on board a Government
owned vessel to perform their lawful
duties compelled the commision to
take prompt and decisive action.” j
The commission declared its work
has laid the foundation for a long- i
range construction program.
Bills are pending in Congress to
carry out its recommendations for a
maritime mediation board and a pro
gram for training young men for a ca
reer at sea. Another recommendation
is for continuous employment of sea
men, instead of signing them for each
trip.
"Inadequacy” of Crew Quarters.
The report said that part of the
"prevailing unrest” of labor was at
tributable to "inadequacy" of crew
quarters on board ship. As a result of ■
hearings by the commission, the report :
continued, recommendations for ;
changes in quarters on 45 vessels will
be "promptly carried out” by the op
erators.. Costs of these alterations
range from $1,400 to SX8.600 per vessel,
and the total expenditure will amount
to $219,300, the eommisison said.
BEERY TO TRAVEL
Desire to See Pyramid Puts Egypt
on Itinerary.
HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 24 t/P).—Wal- !
lace Beery, the burly bad man of j
moviedom, is finally going "on one of
those sucker trips"—to Europe and
Egypt.
“I often wondered what a pyramid
looked like, so Egypt is on our sched
ule,” he said.
He and his wife and their 7-.vear- !
old daughter. Carol Ann. will leave ;
via New York about March 1.
He will make no pictures in Europe.
“That's why I'm going, to get away |
from pictures,” he grinned.
