Virginia Assembly Will Hear Byrd Today At Colonial Capitol Legislature Holds Biennial Commemorative Session At Williamsburg By the Associated Press. WILLIAMSBURG. Va., Jan. 31.— Members of the Virginia General Assembly, accompanied by Gov. Darden and other State officials, came here from Richmond by special train today for their biennial com memorative session in the restored colonial capitol building. Senator Byrd, Democrat, of Vir ginia, was to deliver the principal address at the joint session of the two branches of the Legislature in the House of Burgesses Hall. Later the assemblymen were to be the luncheon guests of officials of Co lonial Williamsburg, Inc., at the Williamsburg Lodge. The two houses received a number of important new proposals yester day before recessing. Senators William A. Wright of Essex, Harry C. Stuart of Russell and Burr P. Harrison of Win chester submitted a bill carrying out Gov. Darden's recommendation for abolition of the office of direc tor of the division of motor vehicles and separation of the police and licensing functions of the division. The bill, drafted by the attorney general, was similar to one offered in the House Thursday, Fenwick Submits Bill. In the House, Delegate Charles R. Fenwick of Arlington submitted his bill to readjust taxes on commercial motor vehicles. In line with recom mendations of a commission he headed, the measure would benefit about 85 per cent of the truck opera tors and increase the taxes for the remaining 15 per cent, Mr. Fenwick said. The House also received a bill which would amend the law covering farmers' co-operatives to provide for the payment of an annual member ship fee, provide for the payment of savings or earnings on a patronage basis, and fix the fees and taxes on purchasing co-operatives on a basis which the patrons said would be uniform with other co-operatives engaged in comparable activities. A bill was offered by Senators Carter Glass, jr., and Morton G. Goode of Dinwiddle to authorize counties, cities and towns to set up, at the direction of the State Corpo ration Commission, commissions with power to zone areas adjacent to airports. Should a locality fail to act in 60 days, the Corporation Com mission would havfe authority to proceed with the zoning. Penal Reform Bill Passes. A bill substituting a single admin istrator for the Unemployment Com pensation Commission won unop posed passage In the Senate, and the House gave like approval to the first of a series of penal reform measures, the Spiers bill setting up a department of corrections to take over administration of the State's penal reforms. The U. C. C. bill, carrying an emergency clause making it effec tive immediately on passage and signature by the Governor, was called up out of its regular order shortly after unanimous approval by the Senate Finance Committee. Constitutional readings were dis pensed with and the bill was passed by a 38-0 vote. It provides a $6,500 salary for a Single administrator, who would supplant the present three-man commission. Present members are MaJ. Prank P. Evans of Front Royal, Col. William M. Kemper of Dan , ville, former executive assistant to Gov. Price, and Labor Commissioner Thomas B. Morton, an ex officio member, who serves without addi tional compensation. Spiers Bill Approved. The Spiers bill, passed by an 82-0 vote in the House, would provide a five-member board of corrections and a commissioner selected by the Governor, subject to confirmation by the General Assembly. The com missioner would receive a salary not exceeding $7,500 a year. The de , partment would succeed to the pow ers and duties of the State Prison Board and In addition would be given wide authority to supervise and regulate Jails and lockups and < Thousands Honor Roosevelt At Gala Birthday Balls Here Movie Stars Amuse Capacity Crowds At 60th Anniversary Celebration A “thank you” from President j Roosevelt last night climaxed the first wartime observance of the birthday anniversary celebration he has dedicated to the cause of little children. 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 tor 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 wondering—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 Stars 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 rai?? 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 was 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 sang. 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's in a black taffeta frock half hidden under an ermine coat collared in white fox. to establish additional regional prison farms. The House passed the Weaver Stephens Senate bill for the tax re lief of automobile and tire dealers and sent it to the Governor for sig nature in order to beat the 1942 tax deadline which falls today. In all, the House passed 16 bills and defeated one, the Singleton Quesenbery bill to permit printers, 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 some 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 jig. 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 evening. Romance seemed to be in bloom all over the place. Bonita Gran ville, Jackie Cooper’s “almost fiancee,” carried a pair of drumsticks all evening for Jackie’s turn at the drums. Dorothy Lamour 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 various appearances. Defense Lewder Arrives. As the guests enjoyed filet mignon or lobster, Miss Mary Mason, civilian defense chairman of emergency feeding, arrived in uniform. “Just making an inspection,” she ex plained. 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 clothes. 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; Gen. 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 WaUace, wife of the Vice President. Closing the banquet, Edward Arnold, president of the Screen Actors Guild, said: “We are grateful to the President because he is what he is.” who also are county officers, to ac cept printing contracts up to $50. The Senate passed six. including the Breeden-Robertson House bill au thorizing the Governor to name officers mi active duty with the mili tary forces as members of his staff. An albatross caught off Chile had been released near New Zea land only eight days before. Mrs. Roosevelt joins Louise Beavers, colored screen actress, and Maj. Campbell Johnson, executive assistant of the District Selective Service Board, in singing “God Bless America” with a throng at Lincoln Colonnade. It took Commissioner Young to handle Mickey Rooney, who at another time during the evening gave a photographer the “hot seat." Advocate of Curfew For Government Girls To Act 'If Necessary' Representative Wilson Would Sponsor Bill; Admits 10 p.m. 'Early' Representative Wilson. Repub lican, of Indiana, advocate of a 10 p.m, curfew for women employed in Government agencies in Washing ton. said today he would sponsor legislation, if necessary, to put the plan into effect. "I am going to use all of my ef forts to increase efficiency in the Government service,” he declared. “There's a lot of inefficiency now. That situation can be partly cor rected if the women working for the Government get a good night’s rest." Mr. Wilson admitted 10 p.m. “might” be too early to send the Government girl workers to bed, and indicated he would likely com promise and give them an addi tional hour to frolic in Washington. “What time do the bars close?” he asked. “Bar Time” Too Late. “Two a.m., except on Saturdays," a reporter replied. “That's too late,” said Mr. Wilson. The curfew was advocated yes terday by Mr. Wilson at a hearing before the Public Buildings and Grounds Committee of the House, of which he is a member, as a means of increasing efficiency in the Gov ernment service. He indicated that night life in Washington was too much for the Government girls— that they came to work In the morning “woozy.” without break fast and the conventional makeup, and took working time to perform these essentials while at the office. Mr. Wilson said his suggestion for a 10 o'clock curfew had been “favor ably" received, and he is ready, un less the Government agencies do something to control the night life of its girl employes during the war, to ask Congress to enact legislation requiring them to be at home at an hour that would assure them a full night’s rest. Considering Housing Bills. The Buildings and Grounds Com mittee has under consideration two bills authorizing an appropriation of $50,000,000 to relieve Washing ton's acute housing shortage by building homes for Government workers and providing the necessary public ■works for the newcomers. Mr. Wilson said he personally be lieved the housing shortage could be alleviated if the people of Wash ington opened up their homes to the war workers. “I wouldn’t feel patriotic with an extra bedroom in my house," he declared. Mr. Wilson said he and his wife occupy an apartment having a com bination bedroom and living room, a bath and kitchenette. Vice Versa Dance Set At High School Tonight Proceeds of the annual Vice Versa dance tonight at Montgomery Blair Senior High School, Silver Spring <Md.), will be used to purchase defense stamps in the name of the school.

Hanrahan Says State Should Buy Land For Fairfax Drive Arlington Lacks Funds To Buy Right of Way, County Manager Declares County Manager Frank C. Han rahan today told the Arlington County Board he opposes a plan of the State Highway Commission calling for the county to purchase rights-of-way for construction of a proposed Fairfax drive, connecting Clarendon with Falls Church. Under the plan, the State would take over the county-acquired land and would construct the new road, in exchange for which the county would take over maintenance of North Washington boulevard which is an existing State highway rough ly paralleling the proposed new route. The master zoning map and ac companying new ordinance was presented by Zoning Administrator Donald R. Locke and Planning En gineer Frank L. Dieter. A series of five public hearings will be held before the board acts. Calls for State Funds. The county manager said Arling ton is financially unable at present to embark on an extensive land buying program and that he could see no reason why the State should not obtain the rights-of-way for developing one of its highways as is done in other sections of Vir ginia. For the past two years Mr. Han rahan has negotiated with the State Highway Department and before the death of Highway Commission Chairman H. G. Shirley about three months ago, Virginia road officials had reacted favorably to the sug gestion that the State should obtain the required lands and develop Fairfax drive. Action was held up, however, because it was found that authorizing legislation would be necessary at the* present session of the General Assembly. The Highway Commission has 1 written Senator William D. Medley l and Delegate Charles R. Fenwick. 1 both of Arlington, declaring it is unwilling to purchase the land. Arlington Plea Opposed. Brig. Gen. James A. Anderson, chairman of the State commission, wrote the Arlington legislators, “we do not believe the Hi'*•'•’way Department should buy the right of-way and pay the construction cost in addition thereto.” Mr. Fenwick forwarded the views of the State roads officials to Mr. Hanrahan and the county manager replied he would not recommend the State's plan to the County Board, nor would he negotiate for the rights-of-way unless instructed otherwise by the board. “The State should either place Washington boulevard in a decent condition or else provide us with another highway which we so badly need,” Mr. Hanrahan said. “The Highway Commission authorizes right-of-way buying for other roads, some of which parallel existing routes, and there is no reason why this cannot be done here.” Anne Arundel Granted 46 More Truck Tires B7 the Associated Press. ANNAPOLIS, Md., Jan. 31.—P. Marion Lazenby, Anne Arundel County Rationing Board chairman, said yesterday that his request for additional truck tires and tubes for , the county's January quota has been granted. Mr. Lazenby announced that Louis C. Burr, State tire administrator, notified him that 46 additional truck tires and 15 more truck tubes could be distributed to Anne Arundel trucking concerns holding January certificates. The board chief said the additional tires hare been al ready allocated. The Increase raised Anne Arun del’s January quota to 153 truck tires and 104 truck tubes.
