Session of Congress.
M -
SMITH TO REINTRODUCE
GRAVELLY POINT BILL
Investigation Sponsor Proposes to
Look into Lobbying and Land
Sale Profits.
9 _
By WILL P. KENNEDY.
The selection of a site for what is
Intended to be the “world's greatest
airport"—the perennial congressional
problem that was prolonged when
Congress recently rejected the Camp
Springs bill, demanded by President
Roosevelt, after a spectaaular fight—
will be a decidedly live issue in the
next session.
This was disclosed today by Repre
sentative Byron Scott, Democrat, of
California, who led the successful
battle against the Camp Springs bill
with charges of inflated prices to be
paid on options for the Camp Springs
aite, and by Representative Howard
W. Smith, Democrat, of Virginia,
sponsor of a bill for the Gravelly Point
site, previously urged on Congress by
the President.
Mr. Scott declared emphatically
that he will press immediately when
Congress reconvenes for action on his
joint resolution which provides for an
•Exhaustive investigation by Congress
of the entire question of selecting a
proper airport for the National Cap
ital. His resolution is much broader
than was realized by many of his
colleagues in the closing rush, when
they followed his leadership to kill,
i for the time being, the Camp Springs
bill, directly appropriating $3,000,000,
which had been passed by the Senate.
To Reintroduce Bill.
Mr. Smith said he intends to re
introduce his bill for location and
development of a model airport on
the Gravelly Point site, regarding
which the President sent a special
message to Congress. Spokesmen
quoting the President in the effort to
put through the Camp Springs bill
declared that he had by no means
abandoned the Gravelly Point site
but looked to that as a gradual de
velopment proposition, which would
provide the Capital with a nearby
airport, auxiliary to the much larger
•Irport to be developed at Camp
Springs.
The House Committee on Public
Buildings and Grounds, which in the
course of hearings on the Gravelly
Point bill made a study of all proposed
sites for airports near the Capital,
declined to support the Camp Springs
bill, even after Chairman Lanham
was called into conference at the
White House, and is prepared to go
ahead writh its study of other sites.
Chairman King of the Senate Dis
trict Committee, who sponsored the
Camp Springs bill and was successful
in having it passed by the Senate in
' the first session of the Congress just
closed, has left Washington but is
coming back next week to hold con
ferences with high Government offi
cials in an effort to revive this measure
In the next session.
But whatever other bills are pressed
for action in the next session, Mr.
Scott declares that he will demand
the investigation sought in his joint
resolution be made. He considers
that the Camp Springs bill is definitely
“killed'’ and cannot be revived, but
before any site is selected for an
adequate airport for the Capital City,
he will insist, he said, on a thorough
study being made, which will avoid
any suggestion of irregularities in
land prices and will assure the Capital
of the best possible port.
His resolution will be somewhat re
vamped, but it contemplates getting
the best advice of aeronautical en
gineers and experienced pilots. The
investigation Committee would be
composed of five Senators to be ap
pointed by the Vice President and
five House members to be appointed
by the Speaker. This joint committee
would be left free to make the fullest
possible study of all matters relating
to a model airport for the Capital
City, including:
(a) Lobbying by private interests
or public officials.
Would Look Into Profits.
(b) The extent to which property
Owners, real estate agents or others
would profit from establishment of
an airport.
(e) Assessed values of land, includ
ing the property owned by the Navy
Department and property proposed for
inclusion in the projected Camp
Springs airport, together with prices
- at which land has been sold in the
Vicinity during the past two years.
<d) The ownership or control of
lands proposed to be acquired and the
.Identity of persons representing the
owners.
(e) The extent to which air opera
tions et the proposed airport would
interfere with the naval radio opera
tions.
(f) Instructions given any Federal
agency in connection with securing
options and the activities of such
agency in pursuance of those instruc
tions.
(g) The views of the commercial
airlines and of commercial pilots flying
such lines with respect to the safety
. and convenience of a large commercial
airport for the Capital City. He ex
pects to enlarge his original resolution
ao as to get the best expert and prac
tial advice regarding the location of a
model airport to the Capital City, cov
ering all possible locations in or near
the District of Columbia.
The extensive hearings by the House
Public Buildings and Grounds Com
mittee on this subject would be spe
cifically called to the attention of this
new joint investigating committee, and
placed at its disposal, and similar
studies made by any other committee
of Congress. .

RAIL CONDUCTOR ORDER
RECERTIFIED BY BOARD
Mediation Board Upholds Election
as Representative of Norfolk
& Western Workers.
By the Associated Press.
The National Mediation Board to
day re-certifled the Order of Railway
Conductors as the representative of
the road conductors employed by the
Norfolk & Western Railway Co.
The conductors’ organization was
certified the first time in October, 1935,
but the Brotherhood of Railroad
Trainmen, which had lost a board
conducted election to the O. R. C., ap
pealed to the United States Circuit
Court of Appeals.
The brotherhood contended that
brakemen who sometimes serve as
emergency conductors should have
been allowed to vote in the election.
The Circuit Court remanded the case
back to the board for reconsideration.
In making its second finding in
favor of the O. R. C., the board ruled
that emergency conductors could not
be classed as conductors foe voting
purposes since their work is prepon
derantly in the class of brakemen.

G. H. A LEGALITY
ISSUE IS ARGUED
IN DISTRICT COURT
Corporate Medical Practice
Violates D. C. Law, Pine
Aide Insists.
ALLEGIANCE QUESTION
BROUGHT UP BY BOYD
Charges Patients’ Interests Are
Secondary to Corporation’s
Under Oroup System.
Legality of the embattled Group
Health Association. Inc., was argued
today in District Court before Justice
Jennings Bailey, who assigned three
hours to the case.
Assistant United States Attorney
Howard Boyd cited numerous cases
from several States to support his
contention that under the Medical
Practice Act of the District, Group
Health Association was violating the
law by engaging in the corporate prac
tice of medicine. The corporation, ha
charged, was rendering medical serv
ice for a fee.
He pointed to court decisions which
held that under medical practice acts
similar to that in the Disrict the
relationship between "doctor and pa
tient should be immediate and direct.”
Under the corporate practice of
medicine he charged that the phy
sician's primary allegiance was to the
corporation rather than to the pa
tient, whereas the reverse should be
true.
The District of Columbia Medical
Society joined with the defendants, J.
Bach Moor, superintendent of insur
ance for the District of Columbia, and
United States Attorney David A.
Pine, who had filed a motion to dis
miss a suit brought by G. H. A. under
the declaratory judgment law to es
tablish its status.
Group Health Association, the
plaintiff, was joined in court with the
District chapter of the National Law
yers’ Guild and the Association of
Medical Co-operatives, who all con
tend that G. H. A. is legal.
Appearing for the Medical Society,
Frederick A. Fenning, George P.
Hoover and William E. Leahy filed
their brief as a friend of the court,
supporting the position of the de
fendants.
The case brings to a head a con
troversy which has been raging for
months, and has had repercussions on
Capitol Hill, where both sides have
been attacked and defended. Tin

been informed some time ago that
the estate was valued at more than
$100,000.
It is understood by officials of the
foundation that Mrs. Hurlbut left the
sum for two purposes—for installa
tion of a window in memory of her
husband in the upper aisle of the
south wall of the nave, and in the
form of a trust fund to provide for
the charitable activities of the founda
tion.
Mr Hurlbut, Cathedral officials said,

FIGHTS 10 KEEP
POST AT HOWARD
University Secretary Seeks
Writ to Bar Removal
Ordered by Board.
Seeking to prevent his removal as
secretary of Howard University on
June 30, the end of the fiscal year,
Emmett J. Scott today filed suit In
District Court against the university
and its president. Dr. Mordecai W.
Johnson, asking an injunction.
Mr. Scott wants the court to pre
vent the university from enforcing an
order of the Board of Trustees, dated
April 12, whereby he would be retired
or removed. He asks that, on a final
hearing of the merits, a permanent
mandatory Injunction be issued, di
recting the university and its trustees
to vacate or rescind its April 12 order,
at which he says he protested at the
time.
The court »w told that he hag been
secretary of the institution, which is
under the jurisdiction of the Interior
Department, since he assumed office In
July, 1919; that he may not lawfully
be removed and denied the rights,
privileges and emoluments, except on
retirement, after attaining the age
of 68.
Mr. Scott asserts he will not be 68
until February IS, 1941, and he has
done nothing to cause his removal.
He contends the university and its
trustees, in violation of its rules and
regulations, has ordered that he be
retired on June 30, having reached
the age of 65 years in order that his
successor may be elected by the board
in October.
Today’s action is along the same
general lines as a fight being waged
by former Municipal Court Judge
James A. Cobb, who claims he is being
illegally removed as a professor of
law on June 30. Hearing on the
merits of Judge Cobb’s case has gone
over until the October term of court.
Representing Mr. Scott in his ac
tion are Attorneys James Cunningham

CONTRACT READY
S TO GO TO ICKES
Allocation of W. P. A. Funds,
as Yet Undetermined,
Expected Soon.
MILL AND RAILROAD
RIGHTS ARE SETTLED
District and Maryland Courts
Must Approve Proceedings
for Federal Acquisition. J
Acquisition of the Chesapeake &
Ohio Canal right of way by the Fed
eral Government moved a step nearer
realization today as the legal staff of
the National Park Service completed
the drafting of a contract for sub
mission to Secretary of Interior Ickes.
The contract, between the United
States and the canal company, must
go to the District and Maryland courts
for approval in connection with ancil
lary proceedings.
The only detail remaining to be
completed within the Interior Depart
ment prior to approval of TSlg whole
project by Secretary Ickes is the allo
cation of funds by the Works Progress
Administration, it was announced.
National Park Service officials said
they hope that the allocation will be
made within a few days, possibly by
early next week.
Details in connection with the sup
plying of water to Georgetown milling
companies have been completed, it was
announced by Donald Lee of the Park
Service legal staff, in charge of the
negotiations. These companies have
a long-term contract with the canal
company for water supply. Under an
agreement between the milling com
panies and the Government, the supply
of water will be continued for power
purposes after the canal passes into
public ownership. Terms of the exist
ing contracts will be followed in this
respect, It was explained.
Agreements also have been reached
covering the reservation of strips for
future additional trackage construc
tion by the Baltimore & Ohio and
Western Maryland Railroads. The re
ceivers for the canal company have
arranged to reserve from sale to the
Government portions of land neces
sary for the additional trackage at
points where the Potomac River Val
ley becomes so narrow that the new
trackage will have to encroach upon
the canal right of way. The areas
involved, both for the Baltimore &
Ohio Railroad and for the Western
Maryland, the latter only in the vicin
ity of Cumberland, Md , are described
as relatively small and as not likely
to interfere seriously with any pro
posed development of the canal area
for public use, either as a parkway or
boulevard.
Engineers of the National Park
Service and the Army Corps of Engi
neers have approved the plans for the
additional trackage at points where it
will affect the canal acquisition proj
ect and future development.
