700 Carloads of Building Material Shipped to Valley Since Hurricane
• - ---— —————— . ———————————————
f (Special to The Herald)
HARLINGEN. Oct. 7.-More than
a million dollars worth of con
struction In the Valley storm area
is reflected in the approximately
700 carloads of bu.'V’ng materials
shipped into the Vmtiey the month
following the hurricane, according
to contractors, lumbermen, relief
workers and others.
The railroads alone have hauled
574 carloads of materials into the
Valley and it is estimated that
enough shipments have been made
by truck to run the total around
700 carloads. Trucks were partic
ularly active in the movement of
shingles and other roofing mate
rials right after the storm and also
in transporting of plate glass.
Reefing Large Item
Roofing was the largest item with
more than 200 carloads received
while lumber was second with more
than a hundred. Other large items
in the order named include as
phalt, poles, sand, cement, lime,
gravel, plasterboard, tile, steel,
glass, sashes and windows, nails,
corrugated iron, stone, plaster ana
brick. Roofing was listed under
several divisions such as shingles
and corrugated iron.
Although this material has been
received it has not ail been sold,
but will be eventually, together
with cars still arriving.
The large sum expended to date
in reconstruction of Valley , build
ings and other structures repre
sents largely repairs made on
homes. Many of the larger con
struction jobs still remain to be
done due to pending insurance ad
justments or applications of schools
cities and other municipal corpor
ations to the government lor loans
to finance the work.
Repair Work Rapid
, Utilities generally have proceed
ed rapidly with rehabilitation In
cluding the power companies, te
lephone companies and railroads.
Power distributoin and telephone
lines suffered heavily and the rail
roads lost considerate money in
destruction of shipping sheds wmch
are. however, being rebuilt rapidly
in anticipation of the later winter
and spring vegetable deals.
Sound of the hammer on the
Sabbath was becoming more infre
quent as home owners who worked
frantically to get a roof over their
heads finished their labors, con
tinued rains which did consider
able damage to furniture, stocks
and interiors of houses where roofs
were blown off, hastened this pnase
of reconstruction work so that most
remaining roofing jobs are those
where the buildings have been so
badly damaged that families and
store stocks have been moved out.
Several large business firms are
still doing business in temporary
locations or not doing business at
all for the time being.

San Benito Farmers
Will Meet Friday
(Special to The Herald)
SAN BENITO, Oct. 7.—Another
meeting of the San Benito unit of
the Cameron County Vegetable
Growers’ Assn, which completed its
organization this week, will be held
Friday night at the city hall.
The unit was organized with Dr.
Harry Drucker. president; W. T.
McClanahan, vice president; H. C.
Jessup, secretary-treasurer; and W.
E. Chenoweth. delegate.
R. V. O. Swartout. chairman of
the county association, told of suc
cess of the organization s efforts to
bols r vegetable prices last spring
and Homer P. Huntley described
the strong unit organized at Pri*

who was present, was called on for
a talk and spoke of the necessity

Over 700,000 acre* of United
States public lands have been add

ture, Joseph V. McKee, independ
ent democrat, goes into New York’s
November elections as a political
anomaly, a man who began his
public career by accident and pur
sued it successfully, contrary to vote
getting doctrines.
“Joe" McKee, who at 44 is the
youngest candidate in the fight, of
fers to the voters a major candidate
who probably has less of what dis
trict politicians call “the glad
hand’’ than any recent bidder on
city hall leadership.
Yet—and herein is the anomalous
in the accepted political sense—
there have been few men, includ
ing Broadway's own Jimmy Walker,
who have commanded without ef
fort greater popular response.
Digniifed, handsome, with a wide
engaging smile, he speaks crisply
and briefly of his campaign aim:
“I, and the men associated with
me, are not actuated by political
ambitions. I entered the campaign
in response to repeated urgings. I
am staying to restore the city to
[ the position to which it is en

Urm, McKee was a Tammany ally.
He started public life in 1917,
rather accidentally, when he was
nominated for the assembly from
his home Bronx district.
He went from there to city court
as a Justice, was elected president
of the board of aldermen, and
finally—when Mayor Walker quit
—n»e to acting mayor. Tammany
repudiated him last year for John
P. O’Brfen, a break resulting, in
the opinion of observers, from Mc
Kee’s uncompromising economy de
mands on city heads.
In the 1929 election, he demon
strated his ability as a vote getter
by running ahead of Walker on the
regular ticket. His most notable
performance came last year, how
ever, when he was given a 262.000
"write-in” vote against O’Brien al

addressing audiences. He some

from his faculty days at Fordham
University when he taught Latin
and Greek.
Privately, "the Judge.” as his in
timates call him. is a pleasant host,
a serious father to his two small
sons. He is teaching Joe. Jr., not
to be a seeker of the limelight.

dollars worth is a late estimate by

wants to sell—especially to a poten

Some $300,000,000 of confiscated
American property, a $187,000,000
government obligation and $86,000,
