Sale of Three Tokens
For 25 Cents Pressed
Af Utilities Hearing
Sessions Continue;
Hankin and Counsel
For Company Clash
Demands by organized citizens
for sale of Capital Transit Co.
tokens at the rate of three for 25
cents were considered again today
by the Public Utilities Commission
at a second session of the public
hearing on the issue.
Some verbal fireworks marked the
first session yesterday afternoon
when company counsel were pro
testing the proceeding and J. E.
Heberle, company vice president
and controller, testified the com
pany faced a revenue decline of
between (190,000 and (260,000 a year
if the change were ordered. Tokens
now are sold at six for 50 cents.
The change was sought in peti
tions filed by the Federation of
Citizens’ Association* and the Fed
eration of Civic Associations.
Company Counsel Overruled.
At the outset of yesterday’s ses
sion. the company asked the case
be dismissed on arguments only 10
days' notice had been given. Instead
of 20. Gregory Hankin, commission
chairman, overruled company coun
sel, G. Thomas Dunlop and S. R.
Bowen. They then protested read
ing of the petitions and again were
overruled. During subsequent legal
arguments, Chairman Hankin once
told Mr. Bowen to “sit down” when
he found too many lawyers were
talking at the same time.
Harry S. Wender, vice president of
the Federation of Citizens’ Associ
ations, argued that sale of six tokens
at a time was a discrimination
against riders least able to pay the
fare and prevented many from get
ting the reduced or token rate. Milo
H. Brinkley of the same group
argued that conductors would not
waste as much time making change
on the three-for-a-quarter basis.
Lower Income Cases Cited.
Virgil C. Heathcock, speaking for
the Federation of Civic Associations,
testified that many colored persons,
in the lower-income brackets, were
unable to buy the weekly passes or
tokens at six for 50 cents, partic
ularly those not regularly employed.
Mr. Heberle, in arguing that the
company faced revenue loss by the
proposed change, said tokens, sold at
a reduced rate, were intended for
“quantity users,” rather than the
occasional or casual rider. His
declaration that token fare rates
were not the proper vehicle for cor
rection of "social conditions” pro
voked s flurry of discussion be
tween him and Chairman Hankin,
as to what Mr. Heathcock had said.

Thousands Honor Roosevelt
At Gala Birthday Balls Here
Movie Stars Amuse Capacity Crowds
At 60th Anniversary Celebration
A "thank you” from President
Roosevelt last night climaxed the
first wartime observance of the
birthday anniversary celebration he
has dedicated to the cause of little
That "thank you” went out to the
many thousands dancing in Wash
ington and throughout the country,
who, the President said, were show
ing their “abiding faith in the fu
ture—a definite expectancy that we
are going to win through to a peace
which will bring with it continuing
progress and substantial success in
our efforts for the security and not
for the destruction of humanity.”
As he saw his 60th birthday anni
versary drawing to a close, the Presi
dent devoted a few minutes of a
radio broadcast to the country’s en
emies who, he said, “must at this
moment be wondaring—if they are
permitted to know what goes on—
how we are finding the time during
the grim business of war to work for
the cause of little children.”
Movie Stan Participate.
Ample proof, as the President
pointed out, that the way democ
racy works—‘the voluntary way”—is
efficient and successful was provided
at the 10 birthday events here where
capacity crowds dined or danced to
help raise money for the fight
against infantile paralysis.
Two dozen movie stars helped
make the evening exciting for those
who took every seat at three mid
night shows, danced at four hotels
and two halls or dined at the Wil
lard Hotel. Although tickets for the
events were good at only one place,
every affair had a capacity audience.
Some of them sang a song at every
gathering and by the end of the
evening, they were barely able to
talk. Mickey Rooney pounded drums,
played the piano, had to work his
way through crowds behind a wedge
of policemen. His hair was tousled,
but he war still grinning when he
reached the last place.
Dinah Shore had promised her
doctor she would sing only once—
at the Willard banquet—but the
crowds asked her to sing and she
Jimmy Stewart Popular.
No amount of police protection
could keep the fans away from Lt.
James Stewart. And most of the
time, the star in uniform didn’t con
tent himself with a hasty auto
graph; he found out the fan’s name
and scrawled a personal message on
everything from regulation auto
graph books to shirt fronts.
One young girl hid in the Shore
ham Hotel kitchen all evening to
see Lt. Stewart. When he arrived
an attendant tried to keep the girl
from seeing the lieutenant but he
would have none of that. He bor
rowed a program and wrote a long
message to her on it. She squealed
and fled.
Leaping in and out of cars brought
minor tribulations for the stars. A
careless foot trod on Rosalind Rus
sell’s lace gown. She calmly removed
her diamond pin from its resting
place at her throat, pinned up the
skirt and joked about the Mae West
effect for the rest of the evening.
It wasn’t all hard work, though,
for the actors and actresses gathered
at Uline’s Arena to await Mrs.
Roosevelt and watch her cut the
650-pound birthday cake, but she
was late—almost an hour behind
her schedule.
At first the stars remained seated
dociley in a tier of seats screened
from the crowd. Peeking around
the screen,/ they could see the
dancers and hear Johnny Long’s Or
chestra. Then they started to dance.
Miss Russell performed a solitary
shag. Pat O’Brien asked Betty Gra
ble to dance. Jackie Cooper and
Bonita Granville did a neat bit of
jitterbugging, as could be viewed on
the other side of the screen.
Mrs. Roosevelt Appears.
Making a short stop at Lincoln
Colonnade, Mrs. Roosevelt appeared
at Uline'8 in a black taffeta frock
half hidden under an ermine coat
collared in white fox.
Wheel, Tire Reported Stolen
Henry Allen, colored, 1737 Eighth
street N.W., reported to police last
night theft of a wheel, tire and
inner tube from his auto, parked at
Alabama avenue and Hartford place
The largest denim mills in the
world are in GreecuAdro, N. C.
After her introduction by Com
missioner John Russell Young, Mrs.
Roosevelt started cutting the cake
Miss Russell got the first piece and
Mrs. Roosevelt went right on cut
ting until every star was chewing
enthusiastically before the capacity
crowd. Young Rooney slipped his
first piece behind his back and
promptly asked for a second.
‘‘They’re all eating It, aren’t
they?” exclaimed the man who
baked the huge cake. "I didn't
think she was going to cut so much.”
From Uline’s Arena, the stars
went to the White House for the
President’s broadcast. At the White
House gate secret service men
checked the cars.
Lt. Douglas Fairbanks, jr., was
held up at the gate because, for
sortie reason, he wasn’t on the guest
list* A similar fate awaited Mrs.
Gene Autry. Several studio escorts
also cooled their heels until some
body inside vouched for them.
Because of the delay at Uline's
Arena, it was after midnight before
the stars really got started making
their rounds.
Some of the stars had a different
story to tell or song to sing at each
stop. Veteran Singers Carol Bruce
and Dinah Shore never repeated,
and whoever followed Mr. O’Brien
might hear him singing “Notre
Dame,” telling a horse story, de
livering a bit from “Knute Rockne”
or impressing his audience with a
recitation of “America.” At his
last stop Mr. O’Brien stayed on the
stage of the Capitol Theater for 20
minutes, winding up with an Irish
Fun With "Hot Seat."
At the Capitol Theater Mickey
Rooney gave a photographer a ‘‘hot
seat"—a metal plate rigged up with
electric wires by the theater’s elec
tricians. The photographer, noth
ing loath, gave the same treatment
to Pat O’Brien, who immediately
sought out Ensign Wayne Morris for
a repeat performance. For the elec
tricians it was the high point of the
Romance seemed to be in bloom
all over the place. Bonita Gran
ville, Jackie Cooper’s “almost
flancee," carried a pair of drumsticks
all evening for Jackie’s turn at the
drums. Dorothy Lam our was ac
companied by Greg Bautzer, whom
she referred to 'as her "ex-boy
friend,” and Betty Grable stopped
at her hotel about 1 a m. to phone
George Raft In New York, explain
ing, “He’s my fella.”
Most of the stars were guests at
the Willard where a toast to the
President (with water) and the sing
ing of “The Star Spangled Banner”
opened the banquet. Conrad Thi
bault led the singing of the national
anthem. Miss Lucy Monroe, known
as “the star spangled soprano” for
her many renditions of the anthem,
sang it at her varidbs appearances.
Defense Leager Arrives.
As the guests enjoyed filet mignon
or lobster, Miss Mayy Mason, civilian
defense chairmaq of emergency
feeding, arrived in uniform. “Just
making an inspection,” she ex
It was about that time that Miss
Grable, grappling with the frozen
peach dessert, managed to slide it
into her lap. Ever gallant, Mr.
Rooney tried to pick up with his
fingers and stained his dinner
Again and again, the audience
rose to honor those introduced by
Brig. Gen. Albert L. Cox, who pre
sided at the dinner. Rising tribute
was paid to Viscount Halifax, the
Ambassador; Gqn. George C. Mar
shall, chief of staff of the Army;
Admiral Harold Stark, chief of
naval operations; Donald Nelson,
chariman of 'the War Production
Board, and Mrs. Henry Wallace,
wife of the Vice President.
Closing tUS banquet, Edward
Arnold, presdent of the Screen
Actors Guild, said:
“We are grateful to the President
because he Is what he is.”

Originator Describes
New Copper Etching
Process at Howard U.
J 1 S
Tells of Developing
Carborundum Method
For Reusing Plates
Dox Thrash, who is credited with
discovery of the revolutionary car
borundum process of graphic art
production, last night explained the
merits of the new method to stu
dents of Howard University, where
an exhibition of his prints is now on
The principal advantage of the
carborundum process, on which Mr.
Thrash has been working since 1934,
is that it enables the artist to make
repeated use of a single copper plate.
In fact, Mr. Thrash asserts, “A
plate is never in too bad condition to
be used for a carborundum.”
Developed in Research.
Development of the new process
was no "accident,” he insists, but the
result of a long and deUberate
search for an improvement in the
technique of graphic art work which
led him to experiment with many
media before he hit upon carborun
dum, an abrasive applied to the sur
face of the copper plate.
J. L. Wells, faculty supervisor of
the Daubers’ Club at Howard Uni
versity, which sponsored the artist's
lecture, described the process as
"probably the finest contribution to
the methods of print making that
has been made in the last 50 years.”
J. V. Herring, Howard University
professor, praised the artist for his
outstanding work in a field where,
he declared, little opportunity has
hitherto existed for the Negro people.
Began Studies at 18.
Mr. Thrash was'bom in Griffin.
Ga., in 1893. Although his interest
in art had developed at an early
age, he was unable to obtain instruc
tion until he was 18 years old, when
he attended classes at the Art In
stitute of Chicago. His studies were
interrupted by the World War, in
which he saw 14 months’ service in
France and was wounded in action,
returning to complete his art course
in 1923.
His prints have been exhibited in
both the New York and the San
Francisco World Fairs, receiving hon
orable mention at the latter and are
included in permanent collections
throughout the country, including
Maryland University and Howard U.
Two prints were shown last year in
the Congressional Library exhibit
for Negro artists.

Text of Roosevelt's Address
President Points to NatSin's Ideals
Of Services to Humanity
The text of President Roose- i
velt’s radio address last night to
those celebrating his 60th birth
day anniversary follows:
To all of you who are making to
night's celebrations such a success,
I want to say—very simply—thank
In the midst of world tragedy— [
in the midst of sorrow, suffering,!
destruction and death—it is natural j
for most of us to say even on -a-j
birthday or a feast day: "Isn't the ,
word ‘happy’ a bit out of place
just now?”
That was perhaps my own pre
dominant thought this morning. ;
Yet the day itself and the evening
have brought with them a great
reassurance which comes from the
deep knowledge that most of this
world is still ruled by the spirit of
Paith, and Hope, and Charity.
Even in time of war those nations
which still hold to the old ideals
of Christianity and democracy are
carrying on services to humanity
which have little or no relationship
to torpedoes or guns or bombs. That
means very definitely that we have
an abiding faith in the future—a
definite expectancy that we are
going to win through to a peace
which will bring with it continuing
progress and substantial success in
our efforts for the security and not
for the destruction of humanity.
A Puzzle for Enemies.
Our enemies must at this moment
be wondering—if they are permitted
to know what goes on—how we are
finding the time during the grim
business of war to work forhthe
cause of little children. For, trader
the enemies’ kind of government,
there is no time for or interest in
such things—no time for ideals; no
time for decency: no interest in the
weak and the afflicted to whom we
in this country have dedicated this
The United Nations of the world
continue, however, to put these
things on a very different basis. We
support our tasks of humanity in
time of war, as in time of peace,
through the same old system of
tellingfihe public of the great need,
and asiring for the voluntary help
of men, women and children to
fill It.
Thefeght against the disease of
infantile paralysis has proven be
yond doubt that the way democracy
works—the voluntary way—is ef
ficient ^and successful.
Toda{/, as in these many years
past, wt; continue this great crusade
—made possible not by a few large i
gifts bait by the dimes and the dol-.
lars of! the people themselves.
Special Assistance Plan.
This', year there is only one dif
ferenoet proposed for the use of these
gifts. The trustees of the National
Foundation for Infantile Paralysis
have u»ld me that I can make the
special; announcement that the
authorized county chapters through
out thb Union may use such portion
of their share of this year’s funds as
is neceusary to give special assistance
to the children of any of our sol
diers hnd sailors and marines who
fall Victim to infantile paralysis.
That will be good news and a well
deserwed boon to the fathers who
are serving their flag on land and on
sea in, many parts of the world, and
to thei mothers who have been left at
home} lo do their brave part—to
I ai^ made additionally happy by
the fact that in many of our sistei
republics of the Americas, parties
and celebrations are being held to
day do provide needed help to the
childnen in those lands.
For! all these reasons I am very
sure fttiat this day has not been
wasted—that it has been a useful
day. Por all that you have done, I
am very grateful.
For we have all been helpful in
lifting pome of the clouds of unhap
piness ■and anxiety which have set
tled down on many of our citizens.
In tlmt realization I am sure we
shall'Jriave added strength to face
the days of trial which lie ahead
un tilt peace with victory is assured.
The lives of all of us are now
dedicated to working and fighting,
and, Jf need be, dying for the cause
of a (better future—the future that
belongs to our little children.

Association today to co-operate In
a plan to conserve tires of delivery
trucks by cutting down as much as
possible on delivery requests.
With department and other retail
stores unable to buy new tires under
the present Government rationing
regulations, Edward D. Shaw, asse
rtion secretary, made the following
requests of shoppers:
Take home your small packages,
rather than expect large trucks to
deliver a single small parcel;
Request no special deliveries, a*
such deliveries require many un
necessary miles;
Request that no merchandise be
sent on approval;
Arrange for some one to be at

avoiding necessity for a second trip:
Return small packages in person
when such returns are essential.
A little more care in making pur
chases will reduce needless returns,
and accordingly assist in the con
