Mrs. Parma, Last Dupont Circle
Apartment Holdout, Gives Up
White-haired Mrs. V. Valta Parma
at last has left the Dupont Circle
Building to its typewriters and file
cases.
For more than six y^ars, She held
on to her sunny apartment atop 11
stories of offices despite efforts to
evict her. She was the last holdout
of more than 700 tenants’who pro
tested conversion of the once fash
ionable apartment-hotel to an office
building.
Even the 40 who refused to leave
after the lobby rugs and furniture
MRS. V. VALTA PARMA,
Gives up her apartment at last.

were removed for Government occu
pancy had long since given up.
Yesterday, Mrs. Parma took a final
long look from the 12th floor ter
race out over Dupont Circle.
"Now you can see why I fought
to stay here," she said. Then she
gathered up her suitcases, prepara
tory to leaving the empty apartment
for a vacation at Atlantic City.
2 Bay Fishermen
Stranded on Piling
By High Winds
Two young fishermen were
stranded for three hours on a
wooden piling in the Potomac, 300
feet off Sheperd’s Landing yester
day, when a companion in their
boat was unable to reach them be
cause of high winds.
Arthur Hibbert, 18, took the two
fishermen, Billy Cross, 15, and!
Eugene Crisostomo, 13, out to the1
piling. All three youths live in!
Bellevue, a southeast housing de
velopment.
On the way out to the old plat-;
form which formerly supported a
railroad bridge, all three of the boys;
paddled. But when young Hibbert!
tried to propel the seven-foot
wooden boat by himself, he was j
carried into the river by the wind
whipping in from the south.
Paddling furiously with a three
foot piece of board, he finally made
his way to shore about a quarter
of a mile upstream, near Bolling
Field.
Meanwhile, spectators on the shore
had called Harbor Police, who took
the two boys from the pilings to
shore.
“We weren’t scared,” young cross
said. “We wanted to stay out longer
and fish some more. The Harbor
Police brought us in too soon.”
When she returns, she will live in
a hotel.
The soft-spoken, but determined,
elderly woman carried on the fight
of her husband. Chairman of the
Tenants’ Committee and former cu
rator of the rare book division of
the Library of Congress, he was
stricken during the controversy and
died in August, 1941.
She held to her purpose of re
maining as long as rent control pro
tected her rights. But last year,
she said, her determination wavered
when she learned of the coming up
heaval under the circle, where work
men now are busy constructing an
underpass.
“My lease was up today,” she ex
plained, “and after all, rent con
trol has been extended only for a
month. I am ready to move now.”
She lived quietly but not unno
ticed above the offices.
Elevator passengers in the build
ing yesterday exchanged knowing
looks when a cameraman boarded
the car, asking for the 12th floor.
“Looks like Mrs. Parma is going
to make the headlines again,” said
one.

Production by Czechs
Expected to Fall if
Reds Cut Off Imports
ROME, Apriln (CDN).—A Rome
businessman, who has branch in
terests in Prague, complains that
Russia has failed to deliver the
goods in Czechoslovakia.
He predicts that choking off the
country from its “natural” source
of raw materials in western nations
will result in a sharp drop in its
industrial production.
He says that when he left Czecho
slovakia, in February, just before
the Communist coup, Prague shop
windows were emptying and pro
prietors were filling their display
cases with pictures Just to have
something on view.
“Some trainloads of what were
supposed to be industrial supplies
were sent in from Russia,” he re-i
lates. “When the Czechs opened
the box cars, a lot of them were
empty.”
Shortly before the Communists
took over, he says, Czech govern
ment authorities began to channel
manufactured goods to political co
operatives, shutting out private re
tail establishments.
“I'm thinking I’ve had it, as the
English say,” he comments wryly,
explaining that he hasn’t heard
from his Prague interests since the
Communist forces moved into
unchallenged power.
