And a loving voice said, "Come.”

William Desmond Dies;
Veteran of Stage and Films
By the Associated Press
HOLLYWOOD, Nov. 4.—Wil
liam Desmond, another of film
land’s old guard, Is dead.
His family disclosed the death
yesterday. Mr. Desmond, 71, a
star of the old silents, succumbed
Wednesday night to a respiratory
ailment.
Besides his many screen roles
starting with "Peggy” in 1915,
Mr. Desmond was also a matinee
[ideal on Broadway. He was seen
in such stage productions as "Quo
Vadis,” “Ben Hur,” “Alias Jimmy
Valentine” and “Romeo and
Juliet.”
His movie leads included "Rug
gles of Red Gap,” "Mr. Broad
way.” "Roaring West,” "Heading
for the Rio Grande.” and "Phan
tom of the Air.” He played bit
parts in recent years.
Mr. Desmond’s wife, former Ac
tress Mary Mclvor, died in 1941.
Two daughters, Mrs. Robert R.
Robertson and Terry Desmond,
both of Altadena, Calif., survive.
Funeral services will be held to
; morrow.

said. “A quarter of a million dol
lars wouldn’t buy it.”
Mr. Boykin also disclosed that
it is planned now to get next
year's festivities under way April
1, instead of April 15 and make
the opening events part of the
Cherry Blossom Festival. He said
a pageant will be arranged de
picting Gen. Washington and
Maj. L’Enfant surveying the site
of the Federal City from what is
now Capitol Hill on March 28.
1791, and Washington the next
day conferring with Georgetown
citizens to get them to turn their
fields and pastures over for the
city.
Twenty-five foreign govern
ments have indicated they want
to participate in the fair, he said,
explaining that their participa
tion will be on the basis of ex
hibits linking their countries with
American history. He said Bel
gium suggested it could show a
chapter of our history in the sign
ing of the treaty of Ghent on
December 24, 1814, ending the
War of 1812. L
He said Britain, which ex
plained it had no money to spend
on such a project but wanted to
take part, is considering this pro
posal he made: Send over for dis
play an original volume of the
King James version of the Bible:
the Rosetta stone, its greatest
archeological treasure; one of the
Elgin marbles from the Parthe
non, one of its greatest sculptural
treasures, and other cherished
objects.
Mr. Boykin made it clear there
is a lot of interest in what sort
of entertainment of the lighter
sort the Freedom Fair will offer.
And he repeated, “No Sally
Rand.”
Two weeks ago the magazine
Billboard published a story that
the fair was going to have a “fun
way.” Since then, Mr. Boykin
said, there have come thousands
of suggestions. One was from a
man who suggested a long list of
attractions. They include a
monkey show, a midgets’ show
with two of the midgets being
graduates of the Vienna Conserv
atory of Music, and a crime show
containing 50 scenes in wax of
famous crimes “to show that
crime does not pay.”
Another man suggested an ex
hibit of snakes.

heard no unusual noises in the
night.
Asked for Another Suite.
The hotel reported that the
man registered at 8 o’clock last
night and was assigned to room
922. Later he left the hotel and
upon returning asked for a suite
higher in the 20-stor$ building.
He was given suite 1701, the one
in which the bodies were found.
United Nations headquarters
said Kuo has been employed for
about two years as a $3,500-a
year document clerk. He lived in
a YMCA in the borough of
Queens and had stayed at the
Alamac, located at Broadway and
Seventy-first street.
Police said the young woman,
whom they described as an at
tractive brunette, worked in the
State Department’s International
broadcasting divi&on. She lived
at International House, a River
side Drive dormitory for foreign
students and workers.
The hotel room in which the
bodies were found was splashed
with blood. The young woman
had been slashed in the chest and
back arid her companion was
stabbed half-a-dozen times in the
| left side of the chest and once
at the right side.
A sheath large enough to con
tain the hunting knife was found
in the clothing of the Chinese.
Dinner and Bazaar
A turkey dinner and bazaar
sponsored by the Young Women’s
Guild of St. George’s Chapel will
be held between 5 and 9 p.m.
today at the parish hall, Second
and U streets N.W. The proceeds
will go to a chapel fund.
KatherineBabbington,
Retired Principal of
Schools Here, Dies
Miss Katherine C. Babbington,
84, retired administrative school
principal here, who had been with
the public school system 49 years,
died yesterday at her home, 4327
Nebraska avenue N.W.
Miss Babbington began her
teaching career at the Seaton
School here in 1885.
Her last 30 years were spent
at the Pierce School, Fourteenth
and G streets N.E., which was her
headquarters as administrative
principal of the Blow, Pierce and
Webb schools from 1923 until her
retirement in 1934.
Miss Babbington was a member
of an old Washington family. She
was the daughter of the former
Bridget Foley and William Bab
bington, a Washington contractor,
who hauled supplies for the Union
Army during the Civil War. The
old family home on I street N.W.
was next door to the boarding
house run by Mrs. Mary E. Sur
ratt, who was hanged in connec
tion with the assassination of
President Lincoln.
Miss Babbington attended Notre
Dame Academy and was the
school’s oldest graduate at the
time of her death, relatives said.
She had long been active in Cath
olic youth movements in this city
and for many years was a mem
ber of St. Ann’s parish at Wiscon
sin avenue and Yuma street N.W.
Miss Babbington’s only survi
vors are several nieces and neph
ews of Washington and Chicago.
Funeral services will be held at
10 a.m. Monday in St. Aloysius
Church, North Capitol and I
streets N.W. Burial will be in
Mount Olivet Cemetery.
Dividends

ing on the insurance certificate
or policy.
In explaining the process it will
use sorting out the serial numbers
to establish the order of payment,
VA said it will start with numbers
ending in triple O. Then comes j
001, 002, 003, 004, 005, 006, 007,
008 and 009.
The 000 to 009 numbers will be
taken as one group.
As checks are mailed to veterans
in the triple 000 through 009
group, the process will be started
in the group whose serial numbers
end 010 through 019.
Next will come the group whose
serial numbers end 020 through
029. This process will be repeated
until the final group is reached—
990 through 999.
The VA at one time considered
using the entire serial number in
determining the order of payment..
This was abandoned, however,1
because officers generally have
much lower numbers than en
listed men. In general, draftees
have the highest numbers.
13 Million Have Applied.
VA said a little over 13.000,000
veterans already have applied for
the dividends. Processing for the
first group of numbers has been
started.
No deadline, however, has been
set on making applications and
late comers could keep the job
going for months or even years.
In response to a question, the
VA said it will disregard the
hyphens which appear in the
serial numbers of some Navy vet
erans. Thus in a number such as
976-08-18, the final 818 would
become the key digits.
The administration is gearing
its pay-off machinery to dispatch
200,000 checks daily. They will
draw 20,000 cards a day from each
of 10 groups, and these will be
set up on the voucher writing
machines.
There will be some delay for a
comparatively small group. These;
are cases where the veterans did
not supply all the information
necessary and will involve further
correspondence.
Census
(Continued From First Page.)
or 15.9 per cent, over the 1940
tally, the report showed.
Maryland, with a population of
2.175.000, showed an increase of
354.000, or 19.4 per cent over the
1940 figures.
Oregon, with a population in
crease of 59.3, led all other States
in growth. Nevada, California,
Arizona and Washington were
runnersup in that order.
New York with a population of
14,382,000 continued to hold first
place as the Nation’s most popu
lous State. California, with a
population of 10,665,000, nosed
out Pennsylvania, 10,633,000, for
the distinction of being Nation’s
second largest State.
The population of the country
increased 17,051,000, or 12.9 per
cent since the 1940 census, the
bureau said.
Census to Test Accuracy.
The accuracy of the statisticians’
“guesses” on population growth
will be tested next year when the
Census Bureau sends 140,000 men
and women into the country’s
highways and byways to count
heads.
Recruiting of census enumera
tors will not begin until after Jan
uary 1. They will be hired only
at field offices in their areas.
Prospective enumerators must
have good health, mentally and
physically, and will also have to
have an automobile availably in
good condition, the bureau said.
Pay un “Piece” Basis.
“They will be called upon to
exercise sound Judgment, patience
and understanding, and they must
be able to adjust themselves to
varied circumstances,” the bureau
continued.
The census counters will be paid
on a “piece-price basis,” or for
each person or farm enumerated.
The average satisfactory workers
will earn about $8 per day.
The preferred age group for
enumerators is 25 to 45 years and
the positive limit is 21 to 65.
Veterans will be given preference
over non-veterans. They will be
employed from two to four weeks.
Production of Hybrid Chickens
May Double in 'SO. U. S. Says
Hybrid chicken production in the
United States, while only about 2
per cent of total chicken output,
may double next year, Agriculture
Department experts estimated to
day.
One Government expert de
scribed the hybrid chicken indus
try as “still in its infancy but a
lusty infant.”
The hybrid chicken, now bred
mostly for increased egg produc
tion, is produced from inbreeding
of various crossbreeds over sev
eral generations.
About six producers in the
country are using hybrids on a
commercial scale, including Hy

fact that the CAA already has
tentatively allotted funds for con
struction of such an airport with
in the District. Fred B. Lee, depu
ty CAA administrator, said the
limitation as to location within
the District was necessary be
cause the fund was allocated by
geographical areas.
Thus funds allotted the District
must be spent here, he pointed
out, and added that “there’s not
much area for an airport within
the District.” Neither the District
Commissioners nor Congress have
provided matching funds for con
struction of such a small-plane
airport, he said.
Johnson Questions Idea.
But Senator Johnson took issue
with the idea that an airport
must be built within the District.
He saw the funds provided by
Congress as a "national fund.”
“My idea is that another air
port should be built for smaller
craft and combat planes as far
away from National as possible—
preferably in the opposite direc
tion from National,” he said.
“As a matter of fact, a combat
plane, converted to civilian usage
or being bought by a foreign pow
er or what have you, should never
be allowed to be tested at Na
tional Airport,” the Senator
added.
The P-38 which crashed into
the Eastern Air Lines plane, kill
ing 55 persons aboard the trans
port, was being tested by a Boliv- :
ian government pilot at the time.!
The craft was to be bought by the
Bolivian government.
Ready at Last Session.
Senator Johnson said his bill
was ready for introduction at the
last session but that it was held
up pending a CAA report.
The Colorado Democrat said
that he had been battling for such
legislation ever since a Navy fighter
crashed into the Eastern Airlines
transport over New Jersey last
July.
The Senator said that he had
been “raising the devil” ever since
that crash and now was deter
mined to get results. He added
that he understood that the CAA
had been held up in giving a report
on his bill at the last session
“because they couldn’t get budget
clearance.”
Worked Out Problem.
Senator Johnson said that as a
result of the New Jersey crash
the CAA and the military had;
worked out the problem of military!
planes getting into commercial air
lanes.
"Following the crash of the air
liner as a result of the stunting
Navy flyer, I drew up a very severe
bill making it a penitentiary
offense for a military plane to get
into a commercial airlane,” he
said. “The CAA told me that they
felt it was a bit too harsh and that
the problem could be worked out
between the agency and the De
fense Department.”
He added that he had asked
CAA Administrator D. W. Rentzel i
yesterday how this plan was work
ing out and had been informed
that it was most satisfactory.
“Four or five military pilots
have been court-martialed for
getting into the course of the com
mercial aircraft and disobeying
the rules,” he added.
Mr. Lee said that CAA had not
come around to segregating traffic
according to type as yet, but
added that “if we can build small
er airports at lesser cost at metro
politan centers, that might get
around the problem.
Airports Now Open to A11.
“The public policy up to now
has been not to segregate but to
keep the airports open to all users,
like public roads and other utili
ties,” he said.
The CAA official pointed out
that the airport construction
fund’s provision that money allot
ted a State, territory or the Dis
trict must be spent in the particu
lar geographical area to which it
was allotted was the same princi
ple followed on funds for public
roads.
The CAA has underway a
$500,000,000 airport plan for the
Nation which is designed to re
lieve airport congestion. The
plan is being gradually put into
effect in oo-operation with local
areas and airport authorities.
Defense Department spokesman
said that Air Force and Navy
combat aircraft do not land at
my large commercial airport at
present. Military planes landing
at such airports are transports,
which actually are the same type
is the commercial air liners and
they are very limited in number,
It was said.
Black Market Cheaper
When tea went on sale in Dub
lin, Eire, without restrictions re
cently, at $1.10 a pound, custom
ers complained that they could
get it for $1 on the black market.
The Bureau of Mines estimates
sine-lead deposits in the tristate
district of Missouri, Kansas and
Dklahoma at 66,100,000 tons.
Line Poultry Farms, which is run
by Henry B. Wallace, son of the
former Vice President.
The Wallace family also pioneer
ed in the hybrid corn industry
and, accordingly, their operations
in the poultry field are being
experts, both in and out of Gov
ernment. About 85 per cent of
all commercial corn grown now is
from hybrid strains.
Officials are inclined to go slow
on making any predictions of the
impact on the agricultural econ
omy of hybrid chicks. They point
out that there are not yet enough
farmers producing hybrids to give
reliable statistics on production
costs and annual yields.

Capf. Ole Brude, 69, Dies;
Sailed Ocean in Tiny Boat j
»y Associated Pross
SEATTLE, Nov. 4.—A man who
once conquered the Atlantic in
midwinter in an 18-foot lifeboat
of his own design died yesterday.!
He was Capt. Ole Martin Brude,
69, of nearby Edmonds.
Friends recalled that in 1904 he
and three companions sailed his
lifeboat from his home town of
Aalesund, Norway, to the United
States to prove its worth.
It was an odd, egg-shaped af
fair, almost impossible to over
turn. It was the result of Capt.
Brude’s search few a more sea
worthy lifeboat than those in use
at the turn of the century. He
had deplored the loss of life at
sea.
His native country accepted the
novel lifeboat, and some Spanish
merchant ships adopted it, but no
others.
Supreme Court Bar
Pays Hughes Tribute
At Memorial Session
High tribute was paid today to
the late Chief Justice Charles
Evan Hughes by the bar of the
Supreme Court, recalling his out
standing services in various
branches of the Government and
private practice up until his death
August 27, 1948.
Resolutions adopted are slated
to be presented later to the Su
preme Court by Attorney General
J. Howard McGrath, with the re
quest that they be recorded per
manently in the court archives.
A large oil painting of Mr.
Hughes was conspicuously dis
played at the front of the confer
ence room in the Supreme Court
Building in which the memorial
proceedings were held.
John W. Davis, attorney, headed
a committee that prepared the
resolutions. These lauded Mr.
Hughes, pointing to his passion
for work on the court; his “large
and statesmanlike view of the
functions of the court”; his great
qualities of mind and heart “and
the luster shed by his life and
character on the legal profession.”
Mr. Davis, in presenting the
resolutions for adoption, said Mr.
Hughes followed Ben Franklin's
advice never to seek public office,
but never to refuse a public office.
Devotion to justice was the jurist's
guiding star, the speaker said.
Solicitor General Philip B.
Pearlman presided at the session.
Chief Justice Vinson sat in the
rear of the room and other Su
preme Court justices were seated
in the audience.
Former Gov. Nathan L. Miller
of New York characterized Mr.
Hughes as “one of the most ma
jestic figures of our times—the <
jurist, a statesman, and a scholar.” *
Former New York Appellate
Division Justice Joseph M. Pros
kauer, in seconding the resolu
tions, called Mr. Hughes “a law
yer's lawyer.” He spoke of the
jurist's ability to marshal facts
and evaluate them.
Mr. Proskauer declared Mr.
Hughes “labored to make the Gov
ernment work.”
Charles Cheney Hyde, professor
emeritus of international law at
Columbia University and 8tate
Department solicitor when Mr.
Hughes was Secretary of State,
was another speaker. Mr. Hyde
recalled that Mr. Hughes did not
recognize the Russian government,
realizing it would lead to difficul
ties. He called Mr. Hughes “a
powerful defender of his coun
try” and said he was a champion
for vigorous international law.
John Lord O'Brian, former As
sistant Attorney General, who wa
associated with Mr. Hughes in the
New York State Legislature, as
serted the jurist's genius devel
oped when serving as Governor
of New York and putting over
many reforms.
