Phone Stockholders
Hear Gifford Defend
Company in Strike
By th» Auectatad Pratt
NEW YORK, April 16.—Walter S.
Gifford, president of American Tele
phone St Telegraph Co., told stock
holders at the annual meeting today
that the managerrfent “can see no
justification” for the strike against
many units of the confpany.”
While Mr. Gifford was talking
union pickets staged a demonstra
tion outside the building.
“In spite of everything,” Mr. Gif
ford continued, "I confidently look
forward to the day when, with good
will and understanding on the part
of all concerned, we shall all be
working together again in our fun
damental job of providing constant
ly more and better telephone serv
ice • • *.”
Union Counsel Makes Charge.
Henry Mayer, counsel for 15
unions involved in the strike, an
nounced before the meeting that he
would attend to charge that the
Board of Directors precipitated the
strike in the interest of important
Wall Street financial interests.
Mr. Mayer, who owns some A. T.
St T. stock, said:
“The precipitators of this strike
felt that if the telephone unions lost
it, it would have a terrific effect on
the steel, auto and other unions.
“If A. T. & T. will concede—as
did General Motors—that the work
ers’ cost of living merits a raise, it
will be possible to settle this strike.”
300 Pickets at Entrance.
As the meeting progressed, 300 or
more pickets marched in front of
the towering telephone company
building on lower Broadway.
Wedge-shaped lines of pickets,
moved slowly down the block,
hemmed in some of the younger
stockholders and forced them to the
end of the block. They had to
weave their way back again to enter
the building.
Older stockholders were not inter
; fered with by the pickets.
Most of the marchers were
equipped with flat rubber noise
makers attached to wooden tubes,
| which emitted a sort of “Bronx
! cheer.”
“Stockholders” Signs Disappear.
One sign read: "$26 a week is
not an American wage” and an
other, "I am a stockholder—the
company should negotiate with its
The picket carrying the latter sign
said she was a telephone operator
and that she owned 50 shares of
common stock, “given to me 15 years
ago by the company for good serv

Schwellenbach's proposal from 8:15
to 8:30 p.m. over the American
Broadcasting Co., which last night
carried the Secretary’s message
Station WMAL plans to broadcast
a transcription of the Beirne tSlk
at 8:30.
Local telephone company officials
announced that 35 nonsupervisory
employes returned to work today,
making the number of “bargained
for” employes on the job 548.
Urging the public to demand ac
ceptance of his settlement terms,
Mr. Schwellenbach said in a radio
broadcast last night he would not
accept the rejection without “put
ting up a fight.”
Proposal Made for Public.
“I made the proposal on behalf
of the American people and I am
asking you who want telephone
service, and who pay the telephone
bills, to demand of each side that
they accept the proposal which I
made,” the Secretary said.
Mr. Schwellenbach’s plan would
have ended the strike by 5 p.m. to
morrow. It called for an impartial
five-man board of arbitration to
settle six of the union’s 10 national
i demands in 90 days and the settle
iment of other issues in two days
i of intensive collective bargaining.
| Forty-five different decisions would
be handed down, applying to each
of the disputes between NFTW
affiliates and Bell System subsidi
When the answers came in, it was
obvious that neither side was willing
to give up the basic ideals which
precipitated the strike.
Plan Called Impracticable.
Answering for the telephone in
dustry, C. F. Craig, vice president
of A. T. & T„ said the companies
approved the general basis of Mr.
Schwellenbach's proposal, but added
that it was entirely impracticable
i to place all cases before one board.
Mr. Craig suggested, in one of 13
i proposed changes to the plan, that
110 regional arbitration boards might
be set up to review the cases. He
I said the companies preferred sep
arate boards for each company’s
disputes, but would accept the
regional plan. The companies be
lieved it would require from six to
12 months for one board to hear all
the questions in dispute, he added.
Mr. Schwellenbach stated his
views on regional arbitration in his
broadcast. He recalled that regional
negotiations broke down during the
war and a national commission was
set up at the insistence of both the
companies and unions.
Mr. Beirne wrote Mr. Schwellen
! bach that his plan was unacceptable
j in its present form.
Wants Nonstrikers Included.
The union Policy Committee had
ruled that any proposal to terminate
the strike must include a general
wage offer and retroactivity.
One of the union’s demands is aj
$12 across-the-board wage increase.!
Bell System companies by and large
have made no wage offers, but have
proposed to extend present con
Commenting on the secretary’s
proposal, J. B. Morrison, vice pres
ident and general manager of the
Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone
Co., said “we did not reject the
proposal: we accepted it in prin
ciple but offered amendments de
signed solely to expedite and imple
ment final decisions on the issues
in dispute."
Urging appointment of regional;
arbitration boards, Mr. Morrison
said acceptance of the original plan j
would result in some cases remain
ing in dispute for months after de
cisions were reached in other cases,
causing difficulties over retroactivity

Teachers' Pay

school officials, members of the
Board of Education and representa
tives of teacher groups.
Mr. Mason told the committee he
had not studied the bill in detail
enough to form an opinion whether
the exact scales specified for dif
ferent teaching positions are sound.
This drew a sharp rebuke from
Representative Bates, Republican,
of Massachusetts who said he con
sidered the matter of grave im
portance and one of the commis
sioners’ responsibility.
Prepared Uirectly lor Congress.
District Budget Officer Walter L.
Fowler attempted to explain that
the bill was prepared directly for
Congress by the school board and
had not processed through the city
heads. Mr. Bates stopped him with
the observation that he was aware
of this.
Superintendent of Schools Hobart
Corning told the committee the bill
was sent to the Commissioners at
the same time it was forwarded to
Congress. He also pointed out that
school officials and board members
had met w'ith the Commissioners on
the issue.
The teachers this year are receiv
ing a temporary $450 increase over
their basic pay, which expires June
30. The new bill would maie perma
nent that increase, plus an addi
tional $250 or a total of $700 above
old basic pay schedules.
Other features include new salary
schedules to be established for all
teachers, research assistants, hbta
rians, counsellors and Instructors in
the teachers colleges. One provision
would raise Dr. Coming's salary to
$15,000 a year. He now receives
$12,000.. *•: £
Recess Until Saturday.
Asked by Chairman Cain whether
the Commissioners would support
continuation of the present $450 in
crease, Mr. Mason said they would.
"So actually we are talking about
the difference, $250,” observed Sen
ator Cain.
After hearing the testimony of
Mr. Mason and board spokesmen
until noon, the hearings were ad
journed until Saturday at 10 a.m.
The first witness today, Mrs. Hen
ry Grattan Doyle, president of the
Board of Education, told the com
mittee the pay increases are neces
sary to keep qualified personnel now
in the system and to obtain new
She pointed out that the board is
charged with responsibility for edu
cating the city’s children and not
with the financial question involved.
Mr. Mason told the committee
the proposed increases would place
teacher pay here higher than any
city in the country except New York.
With the present $450 increase, he
said, they are below the scales in
some important American cities and
not much above the average.
Committee Head Testifies.
Adelbert W. Lee, chairman of the
board’s Committee on Legislation,
told the committee this bill is a
composite of teacher though. He
added that the proposal to raise Dr.
Coming’s salary was not in the orig
inal report, but was added by Mr.
Lee’s committee. Mr. Lee said the
salary now paid the superintendent
is “very out of line” the salaries paid
superintendents elsewhere.
“Case of Vanishing Teacher.”
After reviewing the history of the
present and proposed pay increases,
Dr. Corning presented to the com
mittee “the case of the vanishing
He said teacher training schools
now are depopulated and few ap
plicants are appearing to take teach
er examinations, largely because of
the salaries paid.
"High school graduates just are
not interested,” he said.
He said the new salary schedule
has a dual purpose of benefltting
the individual teacher and the pub
lic. He said it would give the indi
vidual adequate compensation for
the standard of living he is forced
to meet, and for the skills and
preraration he is requried to have.
The benefit to the public, he con
tinued, comes through the staffing
of schools with good people in a
highly competitive market.
Comparison of Salaries.
He placed into the record a com
parison of salaries paid teachers
and school officers here as compared
to salaries paid in 19 other large
cities based on information from
the National Education Association.
The comparison covered both
minimum and maximum salaries for
teachers and officers. In no case
did the District rank higher than
fourth. In the case of maximum
paid senior high school principals
it ranked sixteenth.
Dr. Coming asked permission to
examine a schedule made up bv the
District budget office which differed
from the school exhibits in evalu
ating the boost here with salaries
paid elsewhere.

Italy Must Arm for Five Years
13 Ships Delivered to Soviet
By Constantine Brown
Star Foreign Affairs Analyst
ROME, April 16.—Italian arsenals
will be compelled for at least five
years to supply ordnance and am
munition for the Italian warships
which will be turned over to Russia
in accordance with the naval agree
ment on the peace treaty with Italy
signed last January.
This is one of the important fea
tures of the secret agreement of
Allied naval experts who are still
meeting in Paris, but are reliably
reported to have completed their
work. Their report will be submitted
soon to the Big Pour for final ap
Some minor details, such as the
Yugoslav and Greek claims for a
portion of the Italian Navy, are still
under discussion. But, insofar as
the Big Pour, who will obtain the
lion’s share, are concerned, a full
agreement has been reached by the
I The Russians were adamant in
their demand to rejuvenate their
naval forces with Italian ships.
Although not a single Russian
warship was sunk in the last war by
the Italians, the Russians have
obtained the surrender of one of
the two modem Italian battleships
—either the “Italia” or the “Vit
toria Veneto.” In addition, they
will be given two out of nine modern
fast cruisers, seven or eight of 28
large submarines and probably two
or three out of the 10 large de
The report, which is still kept a
top secret, has caused considerable
.agitation among the few Italian*#
who have discovered the terms of
the Paris agreement. They point
out that there is nothing in the
peace treaty to prevent the U. S. S. R.i
irom handing over all or some of I
the ships to Yugoslavia, which thusj
would become the dominant naval
power in the Adriatic.
The military port of Pola, which
was the main naval base of the
Austro-Hungarian Empire and was
made into a modem base by the
Italians after 1919, can take care
of ships as large as the modem
Italian battleships.
There seems to be no question
that the Soviet government does
not wish to follow the United States
and Great Britain In scrapping the
surrendered ships.
To include in the agreement a
clause providing that Italy shall
provide these ships with the neces
sary ordnance and ammunition re
placements indicates clearly that
either Russia or her Yugoslav satel
lite intends to use them—and not
for parades or as excursion ships
for the workers.
The Italian suggestion that these
warships shall be handed over to
the United Nations to form the
nucleus of an international naval
force, as provided in the United
Nations Charter, is said to have met
with some approval on the part of
American and British experts, but
was violently opposed by the Rus
sian representatives, who insisted on
their treaty rights. And there was
no possible way to dislodge them
from that position.
The United States contemplates
returning its share to the Italian
government with the provision that
the ships be scrapped. It is prob
able that Great Britain will follow

modern battleship and some de

The Greek demand for naval ves
sels is considered principally a mat
ter of prestige. Their present navy
is almost entirely made up of
British-built vessels and the ord
nance is of a different type from
the Italian. The Greek government
is expected to compromise by ac
cepting some Italian merchantmen
in lieu of warships.
The Yugoslavs are asking for one
cruiser and several destroyers and
submarines to replace the few de
stroyers and gunboats of the former
Royal Yugoslav Navy sunk in 1941.
Their claims are strongly supported
by the Soviet representative, who

Rise in Rent Ordered
For High-Paid Tenants
In Public Housing
About 500 families in low-rent
public housing in the District whose
family incomes amount to $3,000 a
year will be asked to pay more rent
June 1.
This was disclosed yesterday by
John Ihlder, executive officer of the
National Capital Housing Authority,
who said the move was designed to
encourage those families to find a
place to live in private housing.
The higher rents will be compa
rable to those in similar private
developments, he said.
Tenants Protest Order.
Under a Housing Authority ruling,
families with inoomes of $3,000 must
vacate low-rent housing by Novem
ber 1 to make room for low-income
families in need of housing, Mr.
Ihlder said.
Meanwhile, a number of tenants
of the Port Dupont low-cost hous
ing development last night protested
the notice to vacate. About 80 fam
ilies in this development have in
comes of $3,000 or more, NCHA said.
The project, which has 326 dwell
ing units, is located at Anacostia
avenue and Ridge road S.E.
Ihlder Explains Policy.
At a meeting of Port Dupont ten
ants called by the authority, Mr.
Ihlder explained public housing
could be rented only by low-income
families. Owing to indications that
private housing will become avail
able soon, he said, it was necessary
to prepare the way to make units
available to low-income families who
could not afford private housing.
At this meeting, Mr. Ihlder also
said rents would be increased June 1
for those having incomes of $3,000.
Army Ends Free Care
For All New Refugees
By th» Associated Press
FRANKFURT. Germany, April 16.
—The United States Army today
suddenly ended its long policy of
giving free camp care to all dis
placed persons and persecutees new
ly arriving from Eastern Europe.
Gen. Lucius D. Clay, American
commander in Europe, announced
at a news conference that only in
severe cases of hardship would any
newly-arrived displaced person be
admitted to camps after April 21.
Gen. Clay said his new order did
not mean that the American zone
was “no longer a haven" for perse
cutees but that the Army had to
stabilize the population of displaced
persons camps for the time when
the International Relief Organiza
tion takes over the camps.
There are now 360,000 displaced
persons receiving care in the zone’s
400-odd Army and UNRRA-oper
ated camps. They will continue to
receive food and shelter but all new
arrivals will have to live on the
German economy after April 2L
As for those now in camps, Gen.
Clay said “there have been continu
ous opportunities offered them to
return to their homelands." A con
certed drive to repatriate large num
bers of these was announced Sun
day when the Army offered them 60
days free food if they would return

the personal congratulations of
President Truman.
Mr. Reynolds admitted the trip
was tiring, sometimes dangerous,
and “I would not make the trip
again for $100,000,000.” But he
added jubilantly to reporters:
“We made the fastest crossing
of the Atlantic ever made, in 5
hours and 17 minutes; we also made
a record trip to Paris and Gander
(Newfoundland) and maybe some
other records.”
Hughes Wires Congratulations.
The previous unofficial round-the
world flight record, 91 hours and 14
minutes, was set in 1938 by Howard
Hughes, who wired Mr. Reynolds,
“My heartiest congratulations for
your excellent performance.” Mr.
Hughes and his four crew members
had taken their monoplane around
a shorter route.
The Bombshell averaged about
254 miles an hour on its 20,020-mile
flight. Taking into account 16 hours
and 9 minutes lost in its nine stops,
the big plane averaged about 318
miles an hour while in actual flight.
A couple of minutes after com
ing over La Guardia the plane
landed and the three globe-girdlers
stepped onto a wing. Police no
longer could restrain the crowd, and
for several minutes women admirers
smeared the three men with kisses.
Finally Mr. Sallee was able to
get together with his 19-year-old
bride-to-be, Patricia Houlihan of
Cody, Wyo., and the other two were
able to kiss their wives. Then Mr.
Reynolds flung his arm over Mr.
Odom’s shoulders and told reporters:
“He is the best pilot in the world.
We would not have made it with
anyone else.”
“No, none of that,” replied the
pilot. “It was just a routine flight
that all airlines will be making in a
few years."
Later Mr. Reynolds told reporters
that the last leg of the flight, from
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, was the
“toughest part” and he “was worried
sick” when they flew through ice
and fog between Minneapolis and
“We came out of the ice at De
troit but we didn’t know where we
were,” the 54-year-old Chicagoan
said. “We had to call Detroit and
they used finders to locate us. Just
then we came out of the fog and toe.
"We covered a lot more miles than
we figured. We didn’t plan to stop
at Gander or Calcutta.
"I took turns flying the plane
from Tokyo on. J had a hard time
keeping Odom awake, even for the
landing in New York, but. of course,
Odom made all the takeoffs and
landings on the entire trip.
“We had a half hour’s gas supply
left when we came over New York
and brother, let me tell you 1 was
Capt Kenneth Behr, manager of
La Guardia Field, timed the takeoff
and return. The landing was not
The Bombshell flew an estimated
5,200 miles farther than Mr. Hughes’
plane, skirting Russia because Soviet
authorities told Mr. Reynolds in ad
vance that its reconstruction prob
lems were so great it could not ar
range for technicians to service the
flight. The A-26 stopped at Gander,
Paris, Cairo, Karachi and Calcutta
in India; Shanghai, Tokyo, Adak
in the Aleutians, and Edmonton.
Mr. Odom, former Kansas City
resident now living in Roslyn, N. Y„
had flown the Burma Hump as a
pilot for a Chinese airline and was
a trans-Atlantic ferry pilot in the
war. He has two children.
Mr. Sallee, whose home is in
Dallas, Tex., and Miss Houlihan, a
University of Wyoming freshman,

| arrangements, now that the flight
is over. *
Before the flight, Charles Logsdon,
executive secretary of the National
Aeronautic Association Contest
Board, announced in Washington
that the flight would not set an
official record because the route did
not Include points specified by the
Federation Aeronautlque Interna
tional. No flight on the official
route has been made, he said.
The official route was fixed In
1939 to assure a reasonable uniform
ity of distance and conditions. It
requires stops at San Francisco and
New York, one of five European
capitals (Rome, Paris, London,
Berlin or Bucharest), Karachi,
India, and Tokyo.
$2,217 Fund to Be Used
For Walter Reed Stage
A check for $2,217 presented yes
terday to the District Chapter of
the Red Cross by Secretary of the
Treasury Snyder, will be used to
improve stage facilities in the rec
reation hall of the Forest Glen
Section of Walter Reed Hospital.
The check is part of funds col

employes last Christmas for military
hospital patients. At that time,

( “I Can’t Chance ‘Travel Stomach’ \
f -That’s Why I Carry TUNIS!” /
C Singing Star of Radio, Stag• and Scroon \
“1 travel a lot, and my throat couldn’t
bit a high note if I ever let acid indi
gestion bother me,” says Morton. “So I
carry Turns. They always bring me
sweet relief jiffy-quick!”
• Whenever, wherever add indiges
tion pops up, put it down fast with
Turns—sweetest relief you ever
enjoyed. One or two tasty Turns
neutralize excess acid almost in
stantly. Settle fluttery, sour stom
ach. Chase heartburn, gas and that
bloated feeling. And when excess
acid irritates your nerves so you
can’t sleep, don’t count sheep—
count on Turns! No soda in Turns
—no raw, harsh alkali—nothing
to over-alkalize and irritate your
delicate stomach. So never over
alkalize—always neutralize excess
aridity with Turns. Nothing surer,
nothing faster! All drugstores. Ask
today for Tumt—genuine Turns for
the tummy!
