Banker, Honored by Society
of .Natives, Says Doubt
Has Been Cleared.
Honored by the Society of Natives
with its award for the most meritori
ous service to the District in 1937,
Robert V. Fleming, president of Riggs
National Bank, last night called on
Washingtonians to go to the polls and
vote for suffrage in the referendum
He spoke at the annual banquet of
the society at the Mayflower Hotel,
where he was presented with a hand
some certificate, awarded annually by
vote of the society. Two speakers men
tioned him for President of the United
There had been a time, Mr. Fleming
told the natives, when he had “some
doubt in regard to the franchise” for
the District. But that doubt, he added,
had been “cleared.”
Hope* for Realisation.
Hoping that the District may come
to a realization of its hopes in the
"near future,” he called on residents
here to "go to the polls April 30, to
register their desire to be placed in
the class of other cities of this Na
tion.” This was greeted with a burst
of applause.
In expressing appreciation for the
honor conferred on him, Mr. Fleming
declared: “There is no city in the
world more beautiful than Washing
ton. Nowhere are there finer people
than those residing here, nor does
there exist anywhere a greater at
mosphere of co-operation and friend
; liness.
“But.” he added, "we have a prob
lem before us—the problem of keep
ing our city the object of admiration
not only of this Nation, but of the
world, and of continuing its fine tra
ditions for friendliness and its reputa
tion of being the best place on earth
in which to live.
“It seems to me that if we are to
maintain the prestige of our city and
continue our progress toward recogni
tion as one of the foremost cultural
centers of the world, it is necessary
that one of the objectives of our so
ciety—its advocacy of national repre
sentation—become an accomplished |
j fact.”
Mentioned for President.
It was William E. Richardson, presi
; dent of the society, presiding, who first
mentioned Mr. Fleming for president
of the United States. He said there
was only one elective office to which
a resident of Washington might offi
cially aspire, and the society would be
willing to support him for that post
I “1,000 per cent."
The award was presented to Mr.
Fleming by John Clagett Proctor,
chairman of the Committee on Award.
The certificate explained the society
by unanimous vote tendered the award
"for the most meritorious and out
standing public and civic service ren
dered by a native of the District of Co
lumbia during the year 1937, along too
numerous and varied lines of endeavor
for enumeration within the limits of
this certificate.”
Mr. Proctor and Mr. Richardson
praised the distinguished career, and !
many accomplishments, both local and !
national, of the guest of honor. Mr. j
Proctor referred the society to Who's :
Who for Mr. Fleming’s record. He
mentioned a few: Former president
of the American Bankers’ Association
and a member of its Executive Com- ;
mittee, member of the Advisory Board
of the Reconstruction Finance Corp.,!
chairman of the Board of Trustees of
George Washington University, treas
urer of the Washington Symphony
Orchestra, treasurer and trustee of the !
Corcoran Gallery of Art and trustee
of the Training School for Boys.
Tribute also was paid Mr. Fleming
by Henry I. Quinn, former president
of the District Bar Association. If
the District ever has Mr. Fleming as
a “candidate.” declared the speaker,
“he’s going to be a hard man to beat.”
Cite* “Foreign” Rule.
Calling on the District to assert
itself in putting forward its own
people for public office, Mr. Quinn
said public office here often was held
by men who were “not native Wash
ingtonians—not even adopted sons.”
“It is natural to resent the undue
intrusion of ’ Federal officers into
strictly local affairs,” declared the
speaker. “When they overstep the
bounds and move into the domain in
which they have no right, it makes
your blood boil.”
Tribute was paid another native
Washingtonian. Frank B. Noyes, who
has retired as president of the Asso
ciated Press. Mr. Noyes had been
invited to speak at the banquet, but
sent his regrets due to the Associated
Press sessions in New York.
Mr. Noyes’ career was praised by
Fred A. Emery, former president of
the Society of Natives.
“As head of that great organization
of 1,400 newspapers that represent
many millions of the reading public
of America.” said Mr. Emery, “he has
directed the policies of the world’s
greatest of all news organizations
during the stressful period in the ad
ministrations of eight Presidents,
from McKinley to Franklin D. Roose
velt. And it is even a longer period
of constructive leadership, for he has
been a member of the Associated
Press Executive Committee since 1894,
the year of the Coxey army and other
spectacular events. * * * The 38
years of Mr. Noyes’ direction of the
outstanding news organization of the
world has covered one of the greatest
epochs in all time.”
Cultural Phase Cited.
The Rev. Edward Fitzgerald, O. P.,
of Catholic University, who said he
was proud to have been bom in
"Bloodfleld,” praised the National
Capital as a great center of learning
and scientific endeavor.
“Here more than in any other city
in the country,” he declared, “are
I tools of every description for intel
lectual endeavor.” He referred to
libraries, public and private, and the
machinery of the Federal Govern
Walter Bastian, former president of
the District Bar Association, joined in
praise of Mr. Fleming of the District
of Columbia and entertained the
society hilariously with a humorous
Music was by George H. O’Connor,
accompanied by George H. Wilson, and

The Banquet Committee included
Judge Gus A. Schuldt, Mrs. Watson
V. Shelton, Mr. Emery, Frederick G.
Umhau, Jesse C. Suter, Mrs. William
E. Richardson and Louis Bowdler.

Structure Will Be Placed
Near Headquarters
of Daughters.
The 43d annual convention of the
National Society of Children of the
American Revolution closed yesterday
with the decision to raise $50,000 in
the next two years for national C. A. R.
headquarters in Washington.
According to present plans, the
| building housing the C. A. R. will b^
! erected near Constitution Hall and
will conform to the classical architec
ture of the D. A. R. buildings,
Mrs. John Morrison Kerr of Wash
ington, national organizing secretary
for the C. A. R., reported at the clos
ing session that $9,000 has already
been raised for the proposed building.
The delegates voted to eliminate the
office of national vice president, presid
ing, as a tribute to the late Mrs.
Eleanor Washington Howard, who held
the post for 30 years before her death |
last November. It was also voted to
change the title of “state director” to
“state president.”
A national officer to enroll eligible
infants in the society was appointed.
The newly created office will be held
by Mrs. Donald Earl of Washington.
The convention voted to restore one
of the rooms at Gadsby's Tavern in
Alexandria in honor of Mrs. C. A.
Swann Sinclair, honorary national
president of the C. A. R.
Immediately after the convention
closed, Mrs. William Pouch, national
president of the C A. R., left Wash
ington to represent the C. A. R. at the
dedication of the restoration of the
"surrender” room in the Moore house
at Yorktown, Va. The ceremony
took place this morning.
: Plans Are Discussed by G. W. U.
Officials Informally.
Plans for a new medical school and
hospital for George Washington Uni
versity were discussed at a meeting
of the George Washington University
Medical School faculty last night.
According to Dr. Cloyd Heck Mar
vin. president of the university, a new
medical school and hospital has been
under consideration for some time,
but no specific plans have been drawn
nor has the matter been placed before
the university trustees in any definite i
form. '
One of the Important objectives of
the national park and monument
system la the preservation of large
tracts of rcadlesa wilderness as a
character and stamina building re
source for all time, the American
Planning and Civic Association said
today In making public Its Illustrated
supplement to Its publication, Plan
ning and Civic Comment.
Frederic A. Delano, chairman of
the National Capital Park and Plan
ning Commission, Is chairman of the
association’s board, which maintains
It* headquarters in the Union Trust
Building, Fifteenth and H street*
“The national park program is
also a broadly educational venture,”
says the supplement, which feature*
photographs of outstanding park
scenes over the Nation. “It is an at
tempt to preserve, make accessible
and present to the millions of people
who annually visit the parks and
monuments a living story of the world
about them. When people refresh
themselves in great natural areas and
at historic shrines, natural history and
human history are rescued from the
laboratory and the archives to be
come vital elements in the welding of
the Nation.”
