Appleby in House Tells of N.
Y. Port Problem-Raritan Bay Improvements By GEORGE H. MANNING Washington Correspondent of Tlie x-ertli .Amboy Evening News AVASHINGTON. June 7.—The na tural advantage* of the Port of New York and the steps being taken by the communities adjacent to the metropolis to improve the water traffic facilities of the Port were re viewed bv Congressman T. Frank Appleby In a speech he Inserted In the Congressional Record today in reierence to the passage last Friday • by the senate and House of the reso •ution granting the Port of New York Authority. “The first resolution introduced on thla subject was passed by the House and senate, and signed by President Harding last August." said Congressman Appleby. “Since pass age of that resolution both the state of New York and the state of New Jersey have adopted a comprehen slve plan for the development of the Port of New York. I quote from the report on the resolution as fol lowb: " "Historically, geographically and •ommerclally. New York and the in dustrial districts in the northern pert of New Jersey constitute a sin gle unit. a great metropolitan district OT 8,000,000 people. The Port of New York, with Its three entrances, 800 miles of water front, twelve rail roads (exclusive of local transit Unee) entering the port, a terminus for rvearly all of the more Import ant transatlantic lines, not only con cerns the people of the two states, but constitute an asset of the entire nation The necessity of creating the port district and authorizing the creation of the port authority is manifest from the fact that over forty municipalities are Involved, some of them controlled by men of divergent views and many of them working at cross-purposes and In the dark. The port of New York is one of the main arteries and principal gateways between the United States and the markets of the world, and any Improvement to the Port of New York will work a benefit to the en lire eetlAO Concededly. terminal facilities at • the port are grossly inadequate, mainly due to the lack of co-opera ‘.ion between the two states of New York and New Jersey. It is sub mitted that a unified authority and control will bring order out of chaos and afford a blessing not only to the contiguous municipalities but also to the country at large. “In a letter addressed to the chair man of the judiciary committee un der date of June 30.. 1921, in regard to the resolution, John W. Weeks, aecretary of war. says: "The adequate improvement and levelopment of port facilities at New York is a deserving enterprise, and ;lf the work is accomplished on the i comprehensive plan of co-operation contemplated by the two states it will doubtless result in benefit to the transportation interests of the en tire nation. I recommend, therefore, that congTess give its consent to the agreement. “Since House Joint resolution No. 172 was passed, legislation for the improvement of New York Harbor and its adjacent waters has been en acted by this body, viz., the authori sation of a 30-foot channel extending from Sandy Hook through Raritan Bay to Perth Amboy, then through Arthur Kill and Kill Van Kull to Upper New York Bay. In addition to this an appropriation was approv ed by both the House and the sen ate for additional aids to navigation in Raritan Bay, and by lighting these waters at night giving traffic over them a full twenty-four hour service. The war department is now malting Inquiries, as to the advisa bility of recommending to congress adoption of a project for deep ening the channel of the Raritan Stiver, that adequate water transpor H f-iniiition mnv* Vio affnrrtpd the Industrial establishments lining its banks. "The discussion in regard to these Srojects has brought to the atten on of the public as never before the tremendous possibilities of the Port of New York. The State of New Jersey, by its natural advan tages, will be the outlet for the many railroads now having terminal stations there, and the development of the same is fully comprehei**.d in the plan of the Port of New York Authority. Public interest has been aroused in this great project, and many municipalities have held meetings to endorse the movemen*. The magnitude of the project is ap pealing to the enterprising citizens Of the state, and they are giving practically their unanimous en dorsement to this great waterways and transportation undertaking. “I feel sure, fellow members, you have made no mistake in voting for this joint resolution.

They say that in the Spring a young man’s fancy lightiy j turns to thoughts of love. So he does the natural thing and falls in love. But see what happens. After a while the madness that once made their hearts beat fast and their cheeks flush happily departs. They no longer whisper silly non sense to each other. A wife's love may mani fest itself as an anxiety con cerning overshoes in damp | weather—or buttons missing from a shirt front. And a husband may forget birthdays and wedding anniversaries. But there is between them unquestioned harmony and devotion. If in the twilight of the evening when the day’s work is finished the wife settles down into an easy chair and asks, “Do you love me, | Billy?" he may not roll his eyes heavenward and call the gods to witness that his heart heats for her alone. Very probably he still say, "Sure, Mike!” Cold Storage for Winter Clothing It’s all very well to toss your Winter overcoat, suit and dresses in an old trunk, dusted layer by layer with some form of moth pre ventive, but—are they safe?
