Meeting Is Called
Tonight to Discuss

On Four Candidates
An informal meeting of lay and
clerical members of the Washington

be held at the parish church of
St. Margaret’s Church, Connecticut
avenue and Bancroft place N.W., at
8 o’clock tonight, to consider again
names of possible candidates to suc

A spokesman fdr the committee
indicated the meeting was arranged
in order to give all members "an
opportunity to discuss information”
acquired by their colleagues con
cerning candidates already placed
in nomination by the committee and
The Rev. Peyton R. Williams, rec

Two subcommittees, according to
Mr. Williams, were appointed at the

consider potential nominees. One.
headed by Henry P. Blair, studied
out-of-town clergy; the other,
headed by the Rev. Armand Eyler,
rector of St. Margaret’s, concen
trated on local ministers.
It was a matter of comment In
the diocese last week that the com
mittee’s formal report, released
Thursday, did not mention any
diocesan clergy among Its final pref
erences. The men placed in nomi
nation are the Very Rev. Angus
Dun, Cambridge, Mass.; Dr. Donald
Bradshaw Aldrich, New York; Dr.
Dudley Scott Stark, Chicago, and
Very Rev. Sidney Edward Sweet,
St. Louis.
Dean Dun and Dr. Aldrich are
known in the diocese, especially be
cause of conferences they have
sponsored at Washington Cathedral,
and Dr. Stark and Dean Sweet also
have been occasional visitors here;
but the fact that no local clergy were
put forward as alternate choices ad
mittedly aroused discussion through
out the diocese.
Meeting Closed to Public.
A layman who requested that his
name be withheld said today; "The
committee probably did not think it
necessary to say very much about
the local clergy because they are so
well known. If it had put a few

Bus Turn-Around Plan
For Arnold Line Due
To Start Later in Week
Terminal Facilities
Haven't Been Completed
At Fifteenth and K
An Office of Defense Transporta
tion order requiring the Arnold
operated bus lines to turn around
some of their buses at Fifteenth and
K streets N.W., beginning today, will
not be put into effect until bus stop
facilities there have been completed
later this week, H. H. England,
secretary-treasurer of the Arnold
Co., said today.
An ODT spokesman said that while
the order has not been changed,
ODT has granted the necessary time
to complete terminal arrangements.
The ODT order, issued several
weeks ago, provided that one-third
of the Arnold buses entering the Dis
trict from Virginia by way of Key
Bridge should be stopped at Fif
teenth and K streets daily except
Sundays to conserve gasoline and
rubber and to ease traflice conges
tion. All Arnold buses now proceed
to the terminal at Eleventh and E
At the time the order was an
nounced, ODT officials said an
earlier plan to stop Arnold buses at
the Rosslyn circle and to transfer
passengers to Capital Transit Co.
street cars had been "temporarily"
abandoned. This plan was protested
by Arnold officials and Arlington
County civic groups.
Mr. England said it would be im
possible for the company to comply
with the present ODT order until
the Public Utilities Commission has
arranged facilities for stopping
buses at Fifteenth and K streets.
He said the terminal is expected to
be completed within a few days, and
the stop plan will begin "sometime"
this week.
ODT officials said the stop plan, in
addition to conserving gasoline and
rubber, will provide better trans
portation service for commuters who
; customarily take a bus on K street.
;They said reports of crowded buses
passing up passengers along K street
! have been received.
