Kenilworth Citizens Oppose Any Change In Lily Ponds Project Opposition to a suggestion by ; Joseph H. Deckman, chairman of the Housing and Rent Control Com mittee, Federation of Citizens Asso ciations, that the Lily Ponds Hous ing Development be changed from white to Negro occupancy was voted last night by the Kenilworth Citi zens’ Association. | The action was taken in answer to ! a letter from John Ihlder, executive ! officer of the National Capital Hous ing Authority, which queried the citizens’ group as to whether "Mr. Deckman’s statement has approval of your association.’’ In his letter, Mr. Ihlder pointed out that Mr. Deckman, when he testified before Senator Burton’s subcommittee investigating housing, proposed among other things "that the Lily Pons houses be changed from white to Negro occupancy. A letter will be sent to Mr. Ihlder from the association “making it clear” that Mr. Deckman did not make such statements with the Kenilworth group's approval. It was also decided to send a letter to Mr. Deckman clarifying the association's housing stand. Among the points made by Mr. Deckman in his testimony, according to members of the association, were that the Lily Ponds houses are not completely occupied, that they are the logical place for Negro housing and that the development is tem porary. These contentions will be answered, the association members said. In other action, the Kenilworth citizens voted to petition the Public Utilities Commlsson for a hearing on a proposal that the Capital Transit Co. put on express streetcar service to suburban District areas. The association went on record as approving the stand of the Federa tion of Citizens’ Associations against any change at present of the sliding scale arrangement for annual rate adjustments with regard to the Potomac Electric Power Co. rate hearings. Approval was given resolutions asking for more street lights on Eastern avenue in Kenilworth and for better care of alleys. Henry Cites Successes In Rent Control Ernest P. Henry, general counsel for the District Rent Control Com mission, said yesterday that of the 16,000 rent-adjustment cases handled by the commission in the last two years, only 60 had been referred to court, and all of these had been upheld. Speaking before the Dupont Citi zens’ Association at the Mayflower Hotel, Mr. Henry declared that “we’re not a bureaucracy like some other agencies who want to expand.” Mr. Henry explained that his “purely local” organisation trie* “to demonstrate that the voteless citi zens of Washington can and will govern themselves better than any of the long-haired boys from schools of so-called higher learning and those patronage-hunting federal bureaucrats usually assigned to such tasks. ' ~ - “They usually come with a gleam in their eye and a scheme in their head, hoping to use us as guinea pigs for things the folks back home wouldn’t stand for,” Mr. Henry added. . - Members agreed with Col. Hugh Miller’s resolution that the District owned lot at the southwest comer of Twenty-second and Q streets should be beautified. Col. Miller presided in the absence of W. C. Taylor, president. Eleven members were present. Col. Martin to Speak Col. Lawrence Martin, chief of the Division of Maps, Library of Congress, will discuss the use of maps in the long-standing dispute over the District-Virginia boundary line at a meeting of the geography and map group of the Special Li braries Association at 8 o’clock to night in the Whittall Pavilion, Library of Congress. I"' Justices Pay Tribute To Late Mrs. Murray A memorandum of the long serv ice of the late Mrs. Margaret Mur ray as an employe of the District Court yesterday was placed on the minutes of a meeting of justices of the court as a memorial to her. Mrs. Murray, it was recounted, had the distinction of having been the only woman to serve at the court as an “examiner of the chancery.” Her duties in that posi tion included hearing and recording of testimony in equity cases, which embodied divorces under old proce dure. She was appointed to her position in 1896 and continued until her death in August, 1943.
