"Tou took Charles M. Schwab to con- j
struct ships. He was a driver of men
and not an accountant. He got contracts
and pushed them, leaving the
itccountlng to the proper division. Similarly
you took P. A 8. Franklin to direct
the operation of the programme.
Here, again, was a man familiar with
his work, able to lay down fundamental
principles and a safe working prolamine,
but no man with the accounting
ability to take care of the huge sums
approprp. trd had beer found. This could
and should have been done. If the Government
had goflh to Judge Gary and
told him the Government was at war
and wanted, not Judge Gary himself, but
liis very best comptroller, then a man
with the experience and the ability
would have been produced."
Mutce Profits Permitted.
Mr. Glllen testified that owners of
ships requisitioned by the Government
in 1917 were allowed to make profits far
in excess of what this country allowed
other industries to make and far in excess
of what Great Hrtafn allowed her
ship owners whose ships were common
'.eered In the emergency.
Under the present valuation of tonnage,
he said. It is impossible for this
country to operate tin efficient merchant
marine. He said the price of ships
should be cut to 12"> a .lead weight ton
and a sound investment market for ship- I
ping organizations created by establish- j
in,; a fair value for tonnage. The pref
cnt rates were fixed by Congress and i
... . not by the Shipping Board.
"The American people fall to realize." ;
said Mr. Gillen, "that they have amortized
more than $2,000,000,000 of the
value of these ships built as a war
emergency when a bridge of ships was
demanded. A loss must be accepted
due to the emergency under which they
were built, the same as it is for unused 1
"The market for ships is not what it
was In December. At that time if they '
could have been sold at a fair price between
800 and 600 ships would have j
x bern absorbed by the Amor! : an "^rkct |
"This Government must bravely meet
the conditions and sell the .ships at mar- ;
I Uet prices, the same as Secretary Hous- ,
I ton is advising Americans to do with I
other commodities."
The Government also faces a loss. Mr. j
Glllen said, on the ships which were
sold shortly after the armistice to
"pioneers" for about $200 per dead- j
weight ton. Since then these owners
Have mode no profit because of the fall
in freight rates, and the Government
(lias sold othef ships for $125 per ton. j
The "pioneer" ojierrtors face ruin and
the Government faces a loss because the
ships were not sold outright, but on the
instalment plan, and if the firms art
Imnkrupt the Government will have the
old ships thrown hack upon its hands.
Fuund Funds In ICIs ht \. V* Bunk*
Mr. Gillcn described himself as an expert
in the reorganization of large business
enterprises until the war started.
He joined the War Indu-tries Board
then, he said, and furnished the basic
principles of industrial mobilization
. which were instituted by Bernard M.
Baruch. After a year he accepted a position
with Judge I'ayne on condition
that he would, he unhamjiered In his

said, he discovered that of the 8,000
voyage accounts only eight had been audited

anil that mere were no aaui uy v>u>u?
the Shipping Board could determine how
much of its funds was In the hands of
ship operators or where those funds
were. He made a hurried trip to New
York In October, he said, and found
that eight banks held J21.250.000 of
Shipping Board funds. He learned that
many ship operators were maintaining
bank accounts with Shipping Board
money In their own names. He estimated
that these accounts would total
Ave or six millions more.
Upon learning these facts, he said, he
recommended to Judge Payne that
changes should be made in the accounting
system. It was then that the force
of 900 accountants was put to work to
trace the funds. By February 1, 15?20.
more than 4,000 of these accounts had
been audited. They showed that the excess
funds In the hands of the ship |
operators were $120,000,0(^0, none of
which was shewn by any records until
the work of bringing the accounts up to
date was undertaken.
Since then, Mr. tlillen saM, the Shipping
Hoard has maintained a central
fund of $10,000,000 for emergency uses

Defect* Rercalcd by Claims.
The witness said the Emergency Fleet
Corporation had to take care of and
d'tburse appropriations from Congress
? mounting to f 3.int.000,000. He said It
wan necessary to have account* of cash
advanced to shipbuilders, money paid to
ship owners on requisitioned vessels an.l

Shortly after the books were opened,
he said, they were all taken to Phil ifielphia.
Meanwhile final contracts
were being entered Into at Washington
v. hlle an enormous construetlo pr ?rirmme
was going on at Phtlad dphla.
1'ooks also were opened In the thirteen
Ci TistrucUnn districts.
The defects of the system were sejn
when Ind'vidual contractors brought up
claims for final settlement. Judge
k Payne, he said, called bis attention to !
' ' the large number of outstanding claims
and th? fact that no records were avail- ,

than double his contract price, according
to Mr. Glllen. Ill addition the Government
paid out more than ?300,000 to
complete the ship.
Mb. Gillen said this settlement was;
made at Washington without adhering,
to the "Cotton rule," without the knowl- !
edge of the Emergency Fleet Corporation
and without reference to yard data.
The settlement was made by "trading." I
Contracts were gambled on in Nor-1
way, Mr. Glllen said. For Instance, a !
contractor had a contract calling for1
3160 a deadweight ton ['ending the sot-j
tlernent. He would sell it for $1711. Tills
process continued untii in some cases the
last holder put in a claim for $321) a
deadweight ton.
Mr. Gillen said that the Government
paid profiteer prices for settlement of j
the ?claim of the Mitsui Company for;
ships requisitioned at the yards of the!
Skinner A- Eddy Company on the i'acific
coast. The Mitsui Company had contracted
for ships at $2S5 a ton and were
allowed to pass that on to the Government.
. '
Judge Payne adopted the rule soon
after he took office, Mr. Glllen said,
that no claim would be paid until a complete
audit of all the accounts had been
made. These audits disclosed that some
$562,000,000 of ship materials which the
Emergency Fleet Corporation had delivered
to contractors had never been
distributed among the yards or charged
to the accounts of the Individual connt

Mr. Cillen said that Judge Payne by
laying down basic principles had saved
the Government large sums of money.
Ho cited a number of instances. One of |
them was the claim presented by the >
Norwegian ship owners in what was j
known as the "Christlania Group" for
fifteen ships requisitioned by the United
.States. The Norwegians presented a !
claim for $14,157,000. After an investlga- >
tion the Shipping Board allowed only
$2..'i0fi.387. Other Instances involved Italian
and French claimants. In each case
Judge Payne by applying the "Cotton
rule" cut down their claims.
Tells of Piorr and Jones Case.
Awards have been completed on all !
but two or three of the 451 ships which j
the .Shipping Board commandeered, Mr. |
fHllen said.
The witness discussed the "famous |
Pusey & Jones case," describing the ;
method by wh'chthe Qoverntnant took
over the SiM.OuO.OOO worth of ship con- [
tracts which the Cunard Company j
placed in this country for the British I
gcvrrnmcnt prior to the entry of the!
I i lted States into the war. The contracts
were let to Pusey & Jones ;
through Christian. Hannov'g. suiil to '
have been tho sole stockholder of the
Pusey & Jenes Company and its five
subsidiaries. The Cunard Company ad- ,
\snctd more than W.OOO.O'iO to liltti before
tlie contracts were turned over to !
the Shipping Board. In the settlement |
the board deducted the 13,000.000 from ,
its allowance to Hannovlg of 17.107,<i00. '
Mr. "filien said that ilann^vig at- ! ,

work of the Pusey it Jones Company |
and its subsidiaries.
Robert A. Dean, the uttorney in
charge of the negotiation of many of

Tneedsle's Work Counts.
When Mr. Twee dale took office, the
witness said, he at once took steps to
omply with the act of Congress requtrng
an accounting of the finances of the
ward. By October. 1919, lie filed atatenenta
for the months of July and Aufust,
1918. and every month thereafter
re filed staVments covering two more
nouths until now. when he Is nearly up
Willi Hie work.
Mr. Gillen said that theie was no
evidence of fraud In any of these ac- 1
counts. If there had been any fraud, j
he said, it would have showed up wh?n j
Tweedale got to work 011 the vouchers, j
However, he sai l that payrolls never j
could be checked up, and that after all |
the system "left the dcor wide open to 1
fraud." He said also that the American j
shipbuilders as a rule were honest, 1
though frequently taking rather high
profits when they could get them.
The profits allowed ship owners at
a time when other industries were supposed
to bo content with 10 per cent,
profit was a bad feature of the system,
Mr. Gillen said. He explained that 80
per cent, of the private owners had
milt their shins several years ajfo at a
cost of about. $75 per deadweight ton.
The Government allowed them 10 per
'ent. for depreciation and 15 per cent
'or profit and interest. This would not
lave been objectionable, he said, if the
iO or 25 per cent, profit had been on the
>riginal cost of the ships, which was
575 a ton. The trouble lay in the fact
hat the value was Jumped from 575 to
5175. allowing the owners what Mr. Gilen
called "some considerable profit."
The figures given by Mr. Gillen
showed that the Shipping Board allowed
51.15 a month for each deadweight ton
jf cargo ships and $5.75 a month for
O&ssenger vessels. At the same time the
British Government was paying slightly
nore than $2 for the freighters it had j
commandeered and $4.15 for the pussen- j
ger vessels. To earn this money, how- j
ver, the English operators had to puy
their crews and for their deck and engine
room supplies. The United State3
Government paid ship owners the high
figures free of all charges.
Mr. Gtilen quoted Judge Payne as
saying that the American ship owners <
were handsomely treated. lie also j
pointed out that every other Industry ;
was being held down to a normal profit
and non-essential Industries being put
out of business altogether. With the
ship owners, Mr. Gillen said, the Government
guaranteed compensation, paid
insurance charges and assumed the liahilltv
if shins were sunk. It even went j.
so l'ur as to provide crews.
"Coddling" SUIp Owners.
"Shipping dollars aren't any more
sacred than dollars In any other line of ]
business," declared Mr. Gil'en in making ;
his objections to the "coddling" of the j
ship owners more emphatic.
Representative Kelley asked Mr. Gil- |
len If the right type of men had been
put In charge of Shipping Board affairs j
nt the beginning. The. witness replied j
that obviously something was wrong: j
that the squabbles over wooden versus J
steel ^shtps would never have occurred j
otherwise and that all the tangled ac- \
counts and other mixups would have j
been prevented.
"But how about before Judge Payne?" j
asekd Representative Kell>y. "Have you ,
any criticism to make of the men ap- j
pointed to hand'c the work?"
"That is not a fair question." replied j
31T*. Allien. i I'm kii nonoio.uic ^onu*:man?and
a Republican as well, Mr.
Representative Kelley Insisted on
knowing more about the opinions of the
witness en the early annolntrnents. Mr.
Oillen at first said he did not think that
Ine of questioning quite fair to him on
account of his having been a Wilson appointee.
Then he Jumped to his feet i
suddenly, nan god tils flat against the
table and shouted;
"I'll try to answer your questions,
anyhow! I hove told President Wilson
and I have told the President-elect, Mr
Harding, that the big administrative
Jobs of *he Government should have men
of known administrative ability.
"It Is the duty of the President to
tell the ?ennte committees whioh have
'he approval of these appointments that
the responsibility la* theirs .is much as
his. Make the Senate take the responsibility
like It do-a in treaty making and
let the President not feel hurt when It
disapproves of some men.
"Not until we cut out the polities! appointments

trv. Too many politicians get. the Jobs
where 'airplane vision' Is needed. The j
Senate should do more than wee that the i
President's appointees to administrative
Jobs have some experience In addition to
being of good moral character."
,Mr. Olllen sat back In his chair and}
smiled apologetically.
"I beg your pardon," he said, "but this
is a hobby of mine."

Seven Vessels Purchased From
Shipping* Board Said to
Be Sole Ass?rs*.
The Atlantic-Adriatic Steamship Corporation,
recently organized by Benjamin
W. Alorse, a son of Charles W.
Morse, to operate a lino of freighters
between New York and Mediterranean
ports, was forced into a receivership
yesterday because of tho decline In
The Morse concern owns seven ships
purchased from the United States Shipping
Board on time payment. Only
$5,000 has been paid on each vessel thus
far, it was said The total purchase
price was approximately $6,500,000. Five
oi the ships are German war prizes; the
other two were built by the Emergency
Fleet Corporation. They are the Pawnee,
Ascutney, Arcadia, Andalusia,
Pequot, Englewood and Galesburg.
George W. Sterling, assistant director
ot operations tor the Shipping Board,
was appointed equity receiver by Judge
Julius M. Mayer in the United States
District Court. The complaint was filed ]
by Marsh A McLennan, insurance j
brokers of 80 Maiden lane, in an equity
suit to recover $27,325 for insurance
premiums. The liabilities of the defend- J
ant are estimated at more than
$3,000,000; assets were not stated, but
are said to consist principally of the
seven ships.
Of the liabilities alleged In the bill of
equity $500,000 was said to be involved
in litigation.
\V. Davis Conrad, counsel for the
Shipping Board, Issued a statement,
which follows In part;
"Owing to the falling freight rates
the Atlantic-Adriatic Steamship Corporation
nos found itself In temporary
'financial difficulty.
"it has been -decided that to conserve
the best interests of all concerned a receiver

"It Is possible that Constantino may
