Persons, Tuberculosis Aide, To Be Buried Today Dr. Peabody Praises Secretary's Work in District Association . Mrs. Eugenia Bray Persons, secre tary of the board of directors of the District Tuberculosis Association, who died Saturday at her home. 4401 Q street N.W.. was to be buried in Rock Creek Cemetery today, fol lowing private funeral services. Speaking of her work in the asso ciation. Dr. J. Winthrop Peabody, president, said that “those of us who have been associated with her in this work and who well know he* tremendous interest and efforts to prevent tuberculosis in the District will miss the valued counsel which she has contributed from her vast experience.” Mrs. Persons was one of the pioneers of the tuberculosis-preven tion movement in the District. In 1907 she held a position as the first full-time executive officer to the "Committee on the Prevention of Consumption of the District of Co lumbia” of what was then the Asso ciated Charities. Aided Titanic Survivors. When in 1908 the Associated Charities voted to disband the com mittee and organize and incorpor ate the present District Tubercu losis Association, site became the first executive secretary, continuing in the position until after her mar riage to W. Frank Persons, who survives. A native of Michigan. Mrs. Persons i was graduated from the University of Michigan in 1906 and imme diately became affiliated here with Associated Charities as one of the district secretaries. During the time sh^ was at Michigan she was a member of the Gamma Phi Beta Sorority and for many years was MRS. EUGENIA BRAY FERSONS. —Harris & Ewing Photo. active in the alumnae association of this group. While in New York City Mrs. Persons was made secretary of the Red Cross committee in charge of the relief work for survivors of the Titanic sinking in 1912. Secretary Since 1939. She had been secretary to the board of directors of the tubercu losis association since 1939. having served on the board since 1927. She has also served as secretary of the board of governors of the Washing ton Club. Besides her husband, she leaves two sons, W. Frank Persons, jr., of Elizabeth, N.J., and Edward Bray Persons, of Philadelphia; her mother and father, the Rev. and Mrs. Ed ward A. Bray, of Trenton. N. J.; a sister, Mabel E. Bray, of Trenton, and a brother, John Randolph Bray, of Norwalk, Conn. Dupont Circle _(Continued From First Page.) that they will support this resolu tion. Incident to the disclosure that several members of the committee have discussed the advisability of introducing a resolution for investi gation of the leasing or sale of other private buildings, Representative McGregor, Republican, of Ohio said he might sponsor such a proposal. Consider Committee Rights. Other members of the committee were considering today what rights they have as members of the Con gress and of the Public Buildings Committe to make any demands upon the Government as a result of the hearings. Representative Downs said, however, that he and a ma jority of the committee are con fident that they have a right to make recommendations to the Gov ernment agency which has been negotiating the lease. Representative Kennedy, Demo-; crat, of New York proposed in the House today that as a result of the Dupont Circle hearings emphasizing the desperate need of the Govern ment for quarters, members of Con gress now occupying the old House Office Building should evacuate and J double up with members in the new1 House Office Building. This, he argued, would imme diately release to the Government 500 office rooms with lights, tele phones. custodial and janitor service and would mean the saving of $1,-; 000,000 to the Government. Representative Kuntson, Repub- i lican, of Minnesota, suggested that uie proposition De cameo iuruier, that members of Congress might live in their offices and release so many apartments for occupancy by Gov ernment workers. Earlier today the Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds was told that although Harry L. New man early this year was told the price at which he might buy the Dupont Circle, he was given neither an option nor authority to seek to lease the property to the Federal I Government at that time. Hebert Accuses Newman. As a result. Representative Hebert, Democrat, of Louisiana, declared: “Mr. Newman misrepresented to the Government; he misrepresented to the owners; he misrepresented to the tenants. He was misrepre senting three ways and riding the middle line to see where there was something in it for Newman.” As the committee resumed the hearing after a recess since last Fri day, it called to the stand William E. Furey, secretary of the corpora tion which until July 3 held all stock of Dupont Circle, Inc. At previous hearings it has been brought out that Mr. Newman, presi dent of the new group that bought all the corporation stock in a cash transaction on July 3, approached the Federal Government as early as May 7 with a view toward leasing the apartment for office space. To day the committee sought to find with what authority he was acting. Acted for Stockholders. Mr. Furey, as questioing began, admitted that he had “more or less taken full charge of the apartment management and ownership for the stockholders” who were in control until July 3. Chairman Lanham then asked a series of questions: “What dealings did you have with Mr. Newman prior to July 3? What contacts did Mr. Newman have With the corporation? What authority did Mr. Newman have to proceed? Was any resolution of this sort adopted by the corporation or for mer owners?” The reply of Mr. Furey was that Mr. Newman never had any au thority from stock owners in the corporation to deal with the Gov emmtnt. He said that in giving Mr. New man a price on the property he had told him it must be a cash transac tion for sale of stock. He testified that he had not given Mr. Newman an option. He went on to say he had known Mr. Newman only casually and had had no business or social association with him. Operated Profitably. Mr. Furey also testified the apart ment hotel had been operated on a profitable basis and the ownership was not keen to sell. Replying to a question by Repre sentative Herbert, Mr. Furey ad mitted that the $35,000 "allowance" testified to on Friday by Harrison Somerville, president of the corpora tion from 1937 to July 3, 1941, was really a broker’s fee credited to the purchases since there was no broker's commission involved. Answering repeated questions, Mr. Furey reiterated that “Mr. Newman had no authority at any time to negotiate for the stock owners with the Government.” Mr. Furey also said that Mr. New man told him on May 28 that “there was no lease to the Government” and that the Government had never approached the former owners after that time. It was then Representative Her bert said the testimony indicated that Mr. Newman had made “mis representations.” Signed Lease July 1. In previous hearings, it has been brought out that Mr. Newman on July 1 signed papers to lease the Dupont Circle to the Federal Gov ernment. Today, in answer to questions, Mr. Furey testified that Mr. Newman had no authority to sign the lease with the Government on July 1 and that the seal of the corporation was not turned over to him until July 3 with the stock certificates and other properties. B. W. Anderson, manager of the apartment for the former owner* and manager for the new owners until Saturday when he resigned, testified that up to July 3 he had not been advised of the prospect of a lease to the Government and there had been no complaint by the ten ants against the service. Replying to questions, he said the placard placed in the lobby as no tice to the tenants on July 5 was written by Mr. Newman, who also wrote the letter of notice to tenants. He testified that the new owners were not co-operativa in his efforts to smooth the way for the tenants and that the effort was to get them out as soon as possible. Some Rebates Allowed. Representative Hebert referred to testimony by Mr. Newman and asked if the new ownership had shown broad humanitarian interest in the evicted tenants and had loaned or given them money. Mr. Anderson replied that there had been some rebates. To a direct question if Mr. New man had shown sympathy toward the tenants being forced out, Mr. Anderson said, “Not too much." Another Representative asked about employment of the William J. Burns detective agency—if they were employed to watch any par ticular individual. "Not to my knowledge" was Mr. Anderson’s reply. The detective agency was brought in after July 1. Mr. Anderson testified that the 602 tenants would still have been occupying their apartments but for the forceful attitude and conduct of the new owners in forcing them out and in some instances com pelling them to give waivers on their leases. Rugs were taken out on July 15, chairs from telephone booths and other inconveniences for tenants ti> facilitate the moving in of the Government. Efforts to Help Futile. “In your opinion did you think the tenants were fairly treated?" “Not as I would have treated them." Asked if the tenants had not been “abused,” Mr. Anderson said “more so after July 15.” He said he had stayed on hoping to make it easier for them, but when he found such efforts were futile he had quit Sat urday. At this point Chairman Lanham closed the hearing on the Dupont Circle Inquiry and the committee went into its executive session to discuss recommendations. Chairman Lanham notified rep resentatives of Government agencies that tomorrow at 10 am. after ac tion on the Dupont Circle is decided on, hearings will begin on the pro posal of Chairman Sabath of the House Rules Committee for decen tralization of Government agencies. Representatives of the Department of Agriculture and the Federal Home Loan Bank Board will be heard tomorrow. Representatives of the War and Interior Departments are to be heard Thursday. On Friday the committee expects to hear spokesmen from Justice and Post Office Departments. Forty-five residents of the apart ment building yesterday afternoon dispatched a telegram to Speaker Rayburn protesting the action of Representative Mills, Democrat, of Louisiana in striking a witness at the hearing last week. They stated that they believed the Rep resentative should apologize on the floor of the House for hitting George Reedy, correspondent for PM news paper and spokesman for the apart ment tenants. “We feel,” the telegram said, "that such conduct is not befitting the dignity and impartiality a mem ber of the United States Congress should exhibit and feel that Mr. Mills should make a public apology on the floor for his unconscionable act.” Content of the telegram was made public by Vllta Parma, leader of the tenants who have opposed the manner in which the building man agement sought to have them move out for occupancy of the apartment by the Government. Mr. Parma said that about 80 apartments in the building are still occupied and that the Government’s process of moving into the apartment build ing has been halted, apparently awaiting results of today’s hearing.
