Six Ex-Telegraphers, Now Congress Members,
Get Ready to TapOutMorse Anniversary Flash Rehearsing for their part in the telegraphy centenary celebration are, left to right, Repre sentatives Mansfield and White, Senator Johnson and Representatives Stefan and Cole, gathered around the equipment used by Samuel F. B. Morse to send the first telegraph message. _ —Star Staff Photo. Six members of Congress, all one-time telegraphers, planned to rehearse today for the big moment Wednesday when they tap out 10 word messages on the same instru ment used by Samuel P. B. Morse to send his “What Hath God Wrought” message to Baltimore 100 years ago. They’ve been busy for days com posing messages suitable for their part in the centenary celebration of the telegraph service on Capitol Hill. Most of them haven’t touched a telegraph key fOr a score of years. There’s Senator Johnson, Democrat, of Colorado, who sent his last mes sage in 1910 back in his railroading days but he remembers he had a "good, strong wrist,” vital to a tele grapher. Representative White, Democrat, of Idaho also was a railroad man. He has a telegrapher’s uncanny memory, can tell you the first name of an engineer who died in a train collision. He had delivered his message to a train, he explained, but the telegrapher who was sup posed to warn the other train of a changed meeting place failed to do so. All that happened before 1907, the last time Representative White touched a telegraph key. Representative Stefan, Republic an, of Nebraska learned the dot and-dash business as a Western Union messenger. He served in the telegraph division of the constab ulary at Cavite during the Philip pine insurrection, once taught tele graphy over the radio and still keeps his hand in with an occasional ses sion before the key. Representative Cole, Republican, of Missouri admits he may have lost his technique but not the code. That, he says, always stays with you. He hasn’t tapped a telegraph key since the last war when he served aboard a Navy gunboat on submarine patrol. Representative Mansfield, Demo crat, of Texas, however, goes back the furthest of the group in tele graph service. He delivered his last message in Rosenberg, Tex., in 1883. Sixth member of the group is Rep resentative Bradley, Democrat of Pennsylvania. Actually, tapping out their mes sages isn’t what’s worrying them now. It’s hard for a member of Congress to condense a commemo rative message to 10 words. Three D. C.

The War Department has issued instructions to its unit commanders and physicians to make every effort to assign physically-handicapped personnel to less arduous tasks in stead of granting medical discharges, the Army and Navy Register report ed yesterday. “The discharge of an enlisted man for physical reasons because he is incapable of serving in a physically exacting position when he may ren der adequate service in a less exact ing assignment is a waste of military manpower,” the Register quoted the instructions as saying. “The discharge of men who can render effective service is prohib ited,” the quoted regulations con tinue, adding, however, that reten tion of men unable to perform a “ ‘reasonable day’s work’ is wasteful.” Planners Reversed Stand on 'Flounder' House, Whitton Says Commission Approved Razing of Alexandria Building in "42, He States The National Capital Park and Planning Commission, which voted Saturday to request preservation ol the Snowden “flounder” house on the Alexandria Hospital grounds approved its razing nearly 17 months ago, Robert G. Whitton, hospital administrator, said today. Mr. Whitton. who received the Planning Commission's request to day, said a letter from the commis sion dated November 2, 1942, stated that while the agency regretted the necessity for tearing down the house it realized and approved the need in considering the hospital projeal as a whnlp Mr. Whitton also pointed out that the entire plan of the new hospital addition was altered at that time when the commission objected to a proposed five-story wing on Wash ington street. In order to meet the commission’s objections the hospital purchased St. Mary’s Academy on Prince street for use as a school of nursing, and revised the plans so that only a two story wing now faces on Washing ton street, with the larger addition in the rear. It was to provide light for this wing that the Board of Directors decided that the Snowden house must be demolished. Mr. Whitton said that work on destroying the house has been tem porarily stopped, but that no change in the plan for its ultimate destruc tion has been made by the Board of Directors. The Snowden house was for a number of years occupied by Dr. Richard Hartshorn Stabler, an early president of the American Pharma ceutical Society.

Control of Fire Insurance Rates Measure Is Substituted For One Approved Recently by Senate Without a dissenting vote, the House today passed the bill of Rep resentative Anderson, Democrat, of New Mexico to give the District su perintendent of insurance power to regulate rates on fire Insurance writ ten in the District, now fixed by the insurance companies. The bill was called up by Chair man Randolph of the House District Committee and was approved speed ily after its terms had been ex plained by Mr. Anderson, who said experience in recent years showed fire losses paid by insurance com panies mounted to less than 30 per cent of the District fire insurance premium dollar and that the buyers of insurance should have the pro tection which would be afforded by the measure. Mr. Randolph then moved that the similar measure approved re cently by the Senate be amended by substituting the House bill for everything after the enacting clause of the Senate bill, and this was done. The bill now goes back to the Senate for action on the sub stituted House measure. _ The principal difference in the Senate and House bills is that the Senate measure gives the super intendent of insurance power to or der rate adjustments when he finds that the profits are excessive, in adequate or unreasonable, whereas the House bill puts the test on the reasonableness on the rates charged rather than the profits resulting. During the brief consideration of the measure on the House floor, a number of questions were asked by Representative Miller, Republican of Connecticut, but action followed quickly after brief statements by Representatives Randolph, Ander son and Dirksen, Republican, oi Illinois.

Bus Fare Case Held Important To War Etfort Navy Counsel Says ICC Has Duty to Act on Problem Speaking at an Interstate Com merce Commission hearing on its order lowering some bus fares be tween the District and Federal buildings in Virginia, a Navy coun sel said today that the ICC had “a responsibility” under its war powers, “to exercise jurisdiction over these interstate carriers” because the case was important to the war effort. The counsel, Lt. (j. g.) Martin Norr, declared that the national transportation policy “required that transportation service be adequate for national defense” and that “the world-wide offensive of the Army, Navy and Marine Corps, now under way, is involved” because of the military work being done in the Vir ginia buildings. The importance of Navy and Ma rine Corps work done in the Ar lington buildings was stressed by Lt. Comdr. J. Edwin Sunderland, assistant administrative officer of the Bureau of Naval Personnel, and by Lt. Col. Miles S. Newton, an administrative officer at Marine Corps Headquarters. Cites Work Done in Virginia. Comdr. Sunderland said the Bu reau of Naval Personnel in the Ar lington Annex was responsible for the procurement, training and as signment of the 2,700,000 men and women of the Navy. Col. Newton said most of the activities of Marine Corps Headquarters was concen trated in the Arlington Annex. The commission reopened hear ings on its order despite the fact this order was recently held invalid by District Court here. A motion to dismiss the commis sion’s order calling for the rehearing was presented by E. Barrett Pretty man, on behalf of the Capital Tran sit Co. Counsel for three Virginia bus lines joined in the motion, ar guing that District Court had settled the matter and that the ICC has no jurisdiction. The motion was taken under advisement. Brig. Gen. Otto L. Nelson, assist ant deputy chief of staff, estimated earlier that about 30,000 persons worked in the Pentagon Building and that most of the War Depart ment functions left in the District were "routine.” More Evidence Sought. The hearing is based on an order in which the ICC. proceeding on "our motion” asked for additional evidence on two points: The extent to which, if any, the Capital Transit Co. is engaged in performing intra-State service in Virginia and the extent to which the Arlington and Fairfax Motor Transportation Co., the Washing ton, Virginia and Maryland Coach Co., Inc., and the Alexandria, Bar croft and Washington Transit Co. are performing intra-District serv ice. The commission seeks to learn whether the application of the In terstate Commerce Act to the trans portation embraced in this pro ceeding is necessary to carry out the national transportation policy.” The Army and Navy were given until June 5 to file briefs, and the carriers were given until June 15 to file briefs in reply. Two D. C. Murder Trials Deferred on Plea of U. S.

Bell, Health Department engineer. Mr. Bell said that his six-man crew, under the supervision of two inspectors, was woefully inadequate to press the drive against the pests. All civic organizations must co operate if the campaign is to make any headway he said. Harry S. Wender, president of the Federation of Citizens’ Associa tions, promptly pledged the aid of the federation’s member associa tions. "We’ll do everything we can to aid,” he said. Several years ago the aid of civic groups was enlisted in a similar campaign, but the response was handicapped by organization of civilian defense work which was just getting started at the time. Mr. Bell expressed the hope that this time the organizations would have more time to give to the rat campaign. First step in the campaign will be to determine what areas are in fested with rodents. Under the plan citizens’ groups will be asked to name chairman to handle publicity and appoint "block managers.” The block managers will distribute specially prepared questionnaires to every householder in the' block. The answers received will enable the rodent-control crew and citi zen volunteers to distribute baits and traps. Instructions on how to use the baits will be supplied to housewives, building owners and others.

All the places are, thought to be in operation, although some may have discontinued temporarily to make alterations found necessary by the inspectors. Superintendent of Licenses Edward E. Bailey, Jr., pointed out that all places are in vestigated by the Fire Department as well as the other agencies. Building Inspector J. W. Oeh mann said many of the places now refused licenses had been visited be fore by inspectors from his office and operators had promised to make necessary alterations required by law, but had let the matter slide.

Declaring America has reasons to be confident of victory but solemnly warning that it would be “an in justice to those who are about to go into battle” if the tasks ahead were minimized, Admiral Ernest J. King, commander in chief of the United States Fleet and chief of naval op erations, yesterday afternoon ad dressed a congregation of 10,000 people assembled on the south slope of Mount St. Alban for the 17th an nual Massing of the Colors service in honor of the heroic dead of all wars. Admiral King stressed the in structive significance of the Na tion’s experience since Pearl Har bor. “This war,” he said, “has taught us the high value of tradi tion * * * the summation of the vir tues and the successes of our an cestors. We revere our traditions, to be sure, but that is not enough. Before we rightfully can claim them as our own, intangible as they may be, we must prove ourselves worthy of them. We should regard them as inspirations to go and do likewise. Today the American peo ple are making traditions of their own. As we create traditions for ourselves and our children, we prove ourselves the more worthy to inherit the traditions of our fath ers.” Vast Operations Impend. With regard to activities imme diately ahead Admiral King ex plained: “Fortress Europe will be assaulted in what promises to * be the most formidable military undertaking in history. In the Pacific other vast operations are pending, for. despite recent advances, we are still far from the citadel of Japan which must be breached before the war is won. “We of the armed services have pondered these great problems: we have calculated the risks; we know the obstacles. But we also know our own strength. We have the men, the ships, the planes, the weapons and plans and the team work. I can assure you that when the zero hour arrives we shall not fail. • * * “We are cool, we are confident. * * * But there is a tendency abroad in the land to believe that the end of the war is close at hand, both in the Atlantic and in the Pa cific. I must remind you that there is little justification for such wish ful thinking.” While the congregation sat in silence Admiral King eulogized these heroes who will live because “free dom shall live.” He referred di rectly to the late Secretary of the Navy Knox, prophesying: “No man will be longer revered and remem bered by the Navy.” 250 Organizations Particiate. The procession into the amphi theater was led by the Spars Bar racks Drum Corps and there were flags and banners of more than 250 patriotic and civic organizations in the line of march. The service was arranged by Canon W. Curtis Draper in association with Maj. Ennalls Waggaman, chairman of the committee in charge, and Lt. Col. Edwin S. Bettelheim, jr., repre senting the Military Order of the World War, as sponsor. Admiral King was introduced by Brig. Gen. Albert L. Cox, who briefly paid tribute to the Right Rev. James E. Freeman, who listened to* last year’s colors service in the room in the Bishop’s house in the shadow of the Cathedral, where shortly after ward he died. The Right Rev.

A Accused Slayer Planned to Wed Shooting Vittim Mrs. Junghans Faces Coroner; Admits She Fired Death Gun Weeping in her quarters at the Woman’s Bureau early today, Mrs. Phyllis Green Junghans, 18, held in the shooting Saturday night of Lewis R Hindle, 21, told today how they had intended to leave Wash ington this week, change their names and be married. “And now,” she sobbed, “we can't do it. I wish they’d kill me so I could be with him.” Mrs. Junghans, whose husband la in the Navy overseas, is scheduled to appear at a coroner’s hearing at noon in connection with the fatal shooting. A tall, willowy girl with black hair and brown eyes, she said that she and the sailor had obtained a limited divorce which prohibited either from remarrying. “I can t seem to get any sens# about anything,” she said this morning. “I oan’t believe that any thing is real.” Changes Story; Admits Shooting. The young woman was arrested by police Saturday night after she had driven Hindle to Casualty Hos pital with a bullet in his stomach. He died there at 12:25 a.m. yester day. When questioned by detectives. Mrs. Junghans said at first that Hindle had been shot while standing by his parked car and had called to her to come downstairs and take him to the hospital. She lives at 1628 K street N.E. Later, accord ing to police, she changed her story to admit shooting the boy, but de clared that it was accidental as she did not know there was a bullet la the chamber of the gun she fired. Mrs. Junghans was dressed in a loose-fitting seersucker garb when she was interviewed at the Woman’s Bureau this morning. She was in a highly nervous state, as she looked over newspaper accounts of Hindle’s death and sobbed bitterly. Discussing her marriage to Jung hans, the girl said in a thin voice: “No, it wasn’t just a marriage of convenience. But I wanted to be my own boss. I suppose every girl who marries very young (she was 16i has that reason.” Three Weeks With Husband. She said Junghans, then a laun dry truck driver, and she had lived together only three weeks and then separated. Later he joined the Navy. She said she met Hindle, who for merly helped his brother operate a fiUing station at MitcheUviUe, Md., while visiting her aunt, Mrs. Mar garet McKay, at T. B„ Md. Earlier, the girl’s mother, Mrs. Chester Green, 313 Seaton place NB., told of PhyUis’ early life and what she knew of her marriage and later romance with Hindle. She described Phyllis as a chUd who had “done weU at school, was always obedient, stayed out no later than she had permission to, and gave me no trouble.” Mother Gives Background. The mother, talking at the modest home at 313 Seaton place NB„ which she occupies with her husband, a mail carrier, and another daughter, Mrs. Frank Harrison, whose hus band is in the Army, gave the fol lowing facts about her daughter's married life and friendship with young Hindle: Two years ago. when PhyUis was 16, she feU in love with Daniel Jung hans, the sailor, then 20, and asked her parents’ permission to marry him. They agreed and went tc the marriage license bureau with the boy’s parents to give their written consent. The young couple were married and lived together for three weeks in the Green home. Then, Mrs. Green said, Junghans became dis satisfied and left, later joining the Navy. About a year ago, PhyUis, having an income both from her husband's pay allotment from the Navy and a salary as a typist at the National Electric Manufacturing Shops. Inc., took her own apartment at the K street address. Asked tor Divorce. Meanwhile. Phyllis had met young Hindle, who worked at a gas sta tion, and “fell in love with him.” She asked her sailor husband for a divorce so she could marry Hindle— whom the girl called “Bunny"—but he refused, the mother said. Mrs. Junghans, according to homicide squad detectives, had gone so far as to have the initials on her baggage changed to "B. A. P„” which she said stood for the name she intended to adopt before marry ing Hindle, "Betty Ann Parker.” She also told detectives, they said, that she had had her hair, originally chestnut, dyed black, and had gone to a plastic surgeon to ask him to change her features. The doctor, she said, refused. Mrs. Green said that Phyllis had finished Langley Junior High School. Mrs. Green knew nothing of the immediate circumstances leading up to the fatal shooting. Early yesterday morning Mrs. Green and her husband visited their daughter at the Woman’s Bu reau and found her in a highly nervous state. ' “I want to see Bunny,” she kept saying, apparently not realizing that he was dead, the mother re lated. Early in the afternoon Mr. Green again visited his daughter and around 9 p.m. Mrs. Green saw her again, finding her "still hysterical.” Police said that when Mrs. Jung hans first w'as questioned at detec tice headquarters she said that Hin dle had left her and was standing by his car at K street N.E. and Bla densburg road when he was shot by a stranger. He called to her, she said, and she came downstairs and drove him to the hospital. Police said that later, around 2:30 a.m. Sunday, Mrs. Junghans ad mitted that she had fabricated this story and admitted shooting the youth, although she contended that it was unintentional.
