Laundries and dry cleaners doing
their work outside of Alexandria, but
soliciting business here, had license
fees hiked to $500 under the action
taken Tuesday. Fees of $60 for each
laundry truck and $50 for the cleaners
trucks also were voted.

With loneliness and loss:
T»ath takes away our loved ones

Since you have gone before me. dear Grace.
Walk slowly down the ways of death,

For I would want to overtake you some day
And seek the journey's ending by your

Why should I mourn her departure

U. S. URGED TO END
ISOLATIONIST POLICY
Three House Members Ask Em
bargo on Arms to Aggres
sor Nations.
Three members of the House advo
cated an embargo on arms shipments
to aggressor nations and non-recogni
tion of territories changed in violation
of international treaties as part of the
American "search for peace." in ad
I dress last night, before a mass meeting
; called by the Washington Committee
for Aid to China.
The speakers were Representatives
O'Connell of Montana and Scott of
California. Democrats, and Teigan,
Farmer-Labor, of Minnesota. The
meeting was held at the Rialto The
ater, with Msgr. John A. Ryan pre
siding.
Representative O'Connell declared
"it is high time the United States de
sert* its policy of isolation. Our bloc
formed in Congress is sending out an
appeal to the American people that
democracy may triumph over fascism,
progress over reaction, peace over
war."
Mr. O'Connell and Mr. Scott dis
cussed their resolutions pending in
the House, calling for a boycott against
Japan and an arms embargo.
Mr. Teigan called attention “to the
fact we have taken an isolationist at
titude for the last 20 years, advocating
neutrality, while on the other hand
we shipped an immense lot of war
material to Japan in 1937. As long
as we keep aiding the aggressor, re
gardless of our sympathies, we are not
neutral, and the least we can do is
to stop that.”
The warning that Japanese subju
gation of China w ould mean over 500,
000.000 people menacing the trade
and civilization of the Western World
was voiced by Dr. William E. Dodd,
former Ambassador to Germany.
The Right Rev. Paul Yu Pin, Catho
lic Bishop of Nanking, told the meet
ing that Japans aggression had fired
the patriotism of China and created
a united Chinese front.

$35,000 IS SOUGHT
FOR DRIVE ON CRIME
Criminal Justice Association to
Begin Campaign Here
Next Week.
The Washington Criminal Justice
Association will open a campaign next
Wednesday to raise $35,000 here in its
war on crime.
In announcing this, Clarence Phelps
Dodge, general chairman of the cam
paign, stated that 10 teams of 12 per
sons each will be formed into a "com
munity sales group.”
The program to reduce crime in the
National Capital grew out of a series
of open forums held at the Willard
Hotel last month by the association.
Among the proposed methods of
approach to solution of the crime
problem will be studies of probation
and vagrancy laws “with a view to
ward eliminating panhandling,” and
of gambling laws with the possible
sponsorship of "more rigorous regu
lations.”
Other features of the war on crime
include: Proposed fingerprinting of all
criminals, more uniform sentences,
study of the jury system and of the
need for a District "habitual crim
inal" law.
Included also are promotion of slum
clearance, hospitalisation of defectives
in penal Institutions, study of private
ownership of firearms, of the need
for a District public defender and of
pawnbrokers and second-hand dealers.

Frankness Proves Harmful.
8T. PAUL fff*)—George Murphy,
who pleaded guilty to a charge of
drunken driving, was very frank when
"Judge John Finehout asked him why
he didn’t have a driver’s license.
“Because,” Murphy explained, “I
was arrested in 1934 for drunken driv
ing and mj^license was taken away.”
Thirty days In jfcil without option of
a fas was the indie’s answer.|
Thomas G. Kelliher, Interior
Department Investigator,
Submits Data.
Accompanied by Joseph P. Tumulty,
his attorney, Thomas G. Kelliher, for
mer Interior Department investigator,
today submitted to the Senate Public
Lands Committee records of an in
quiry he made in 1935 which resulted
in temporary suspension of two In
terior employes and criminal prosecu
tion of a "hot oil" operator in Texas.
Immediately after receiving the doc
uments, the committee recessed until
2:30 p.m. in order to give Senator
Pittman, Democrat, of Nevada, an op
portunity to examine the papers.
Senator Pittman has contended that
despite Mr. Kelllher's charges against
the Interior employes, they were rein
stated by Secretary Ickes and his ad
ministrative assistant, Ebert K. Bur
lew, in a "whitewashing” procedure.
Sees Claim Substantiated.
Senator Pittman has said the "hot
oil" case will substantiate the Senator's
claim that Mr. Burlew is not qualified
for promotion to First Assistant Sec
retary of Interior—an office for which
he recently was nominated by Presi
dent Roosevelt.
Mr. Kelliher is the first witness who
has appeared before the committee
with legal counsel. Mr. Tumulty told
reporters Mr. Kelliher sought his ad
vice immediately on arriving in Wash
ington this morning from New Orleans,
where he had been notified by wire of
a committee subpoena.
Mr. Kelliher, according to informa
tion given the committee earlier, re
signed from the Interior Department
in April, 1936. rather than accept a
proposed transfer from the Division
of Investigation to another bureau.
Mr. Tumulty said he advised his
client to answer all questions pro
pounded by committee members
"truthfully and fully.”
Question Unanswered.
Senator Pittman* sought vainly at a
committee hearing yesterday afternoon
to learn why onfy T. E. Guillery,
Tyler (Tex.) oil operator, was prose
cuted by the Department of Justice,
and why he was given "such a small
sentence”—a $300 fine. He introduced
in the record a letter from the Federal
prosecutor calling attention of the De
partment of Justice to the fact that
prosecution of Guillery might have
ramifications of "transcendant impor- ,
tance.” The letter referred specifically
to the alleged involvement of the two
Interior oil examiners, and suggested
there might be "a great deal of ad
ditional evidence in the Interior De
partment files involving others.”
Special Assistant Testifies.
The letter was identified for the
committee by its author, Richard H.
Hill, a special assistant to the Attor
ney General, who prosecuted Guillery.
Mr. Hill wrote that the two Interior '
examiners had been suspended, but
later reinstated on recommendation of
a special representative of Secretary
Ickes.
Mr, Hill's recollection of details of
the oil case was hazy. He insisted the
letter and the record would have to
"speak for themselves.” The witness
pointed out that his letter concluded
by recommending prosecution of Guil- •
lery, whatever the consequences.
The special assistant said he had
discussed with Mr. Kelliher the con
nection of the two oil examiners with
the Guillery matter, but he gave no
details of the conversations.
Presses Questioning on Fine.
Senator Pittman pressed Mr. Hill
for an explanation of why Guillery
recehed a fine of only $300.
"I don't recall all the circumstances.”
the witness said, "but as I believe he
was destitute—practically on relief at
the time.”
"Would it have cost the Government
any more to have him in jail then on
relief?” Senator Pittman demanded.
"Possibly not,” Mr. Hill replied.
‘As a matter of fact, weren't you
afraid that too big a fine might cause
him to plead not guilty—to take his
chances and tell all that he knew?”
"Decidedly not,” the attorney said,
with emphasis.
PARENTS BLAMED
IN JUVENILE CRIME
Importance of Instilling Respect
Stressed in Talk by Judge
Curran.
Declaring responsibility for a large
percentage of juvenile crime rests with
parents who lack proper control over
their children. Police Court Judge Ed
ward M. Curran, in a talk last night
to mothers and fathers of Gonzaga
High School students, cited the neces
sity for instilling parental respect in
children.
If children respect their parents
they will respect the law when they
grow up, Judge Curran asserted. He
warned that a sufficiently aroused pub
lic opinion would help to minimize
and control organized crime, but could
not completely eliminate it. If there
Is any solution to the crime problem,
it lies in the cradle, which Is where
the parents' duty comes in. Judge Cur
ran said.
Crime is the responsibility of society,
not of the criminal, he declared.
Pointing out that the desire for small
luxuries is the reason for most first
thefts, Judge Curran urged the parents
to provide amusement for their chil
dren, to help combat Increasing Dis
trict crime.

AUSTRIA DESCRIBED
BY STAFF LECTURER
Pictured as Land Where Men
Wear Flowers in Their Hats and
Traffic' Moves to Left.
Austria, the land where men wear
flowers in their hats and traffic moves
to the left in one-half of the country
and to the right in the other, was
described in a lecture last night by W.
Robert Moore of the National Geo
graphic Society staff before a meeting
of the society in Constitution Hall.
Mr. Moore said “the beautiful blue
Danube," which has made Austria and
its capital, Vienna, famous, is really
a dirty brown in color. This, however,
does not diminish the popularity of
the “Blue Danube"’ and other Strauss
waltzes, he said. a
For the first time, Mr. Moore showed
natural color photographs he made of
peasant costumes and festivals, farms,
mountains and lakes during 3,000
miles of tffivel in Austria last summer.
Vienna, a said, is almost a capital
without a'country, constituting nearly

By Barton
Legislator Says
Ideals of Success
Are Changing.
THE idea that success can be
measured only in terms of the
ability to acquire wealth is
undergoing a change. Repre
sentative Bruce Barton of New York
told members of the Congressional
Club yesterday afternoon at the Friday
tea, adding that he believed the era
of great fortunes was over. *
Mr. Barton said he foresaw a more
equitable distribution of wealth with
greater emphasis on services, investi
gation and studies. In support of hi*
contention that wealth was not the
final measure of success, he cited
H. G. Wells’ list of the six greatest
men in history, saying it was signifi
cant that none of them had been great
warriors or men of outstanding wealth,
but persons who had rendered valuable
services and whose ideas had wide- *
spread influence.
Reviewing briefly, the ’’Revolt of the
Masses,” by Ortegay Gasset, he pointed
out that progress in education and
health and the belief in the right* of
man had brought the masses into
power in European countries and that
they were ruling without any back
ground of governmental responsibility.
He urged co-operation between gov
ernment, labor, agriculture and in
dustry and the utilization of the abili
ties of each of these groups as a solu
tion of present day economic prob
lems.
The following ladies presided at th»
! tea tables: Mrs. George H. Mahon, »
