(Ul'l —When Philadelphia Inid $200.000 before the Kepublicnn National Committee In cash and pledges to win Die 1910 National Convention, it was gambling for a $12,000.000 stake. 'Die Chamber of Commerce estl- inaUd. that 'the O.O.P. conclave would draw approximately 125.000 perrons to the Quaker City to stay from 24 hours to 10 day;; each, and that another 800,000 would trickle in for one day. And the golden stream they leave behind them is expected to total $12,000,000. The Chamber of Commerce worked it out In cul-aml-drtcd statistics long before Chairman John D. M. Hamilton awarded the convention to Philadelphia over Chicago and Fargo. N. n. The business group based Its denies on lite 1D3C expenditures of the Democrats when they nominated President Roosevelt here. The Democrats spent tin estimated $10.000.000. and, convention men held that Republicans were "bigger spenders" by al least 20 per cent. Lion Share lo lintels For rooms, tips and sundries, Ihe holel interests are expected to collect 23 per cent of the total, or $2,700.000. When the delegate buys that, little gilt to take back to the family, department nml retail stoics will come In for 23.8 per cent, or S2,a5G,000. The political delegate, like the tired businessman, must be enter tallied, so theaters and night clubs : figure to take 15.9 per cent of the gross, or $1,908,000. Wholesalers nml manufacturers are preparing now for the gathering, and their contributions will net them 12.7 per cent, or SI,524000. The hotels come in for a double share in the Chamber ol Commerce computations. Hotel meals- aside from larilT on rooin s —should amount to 10 per cent, or $1,200,000, while an equal amount will be snent in restaurants apart from liostelries. Transit Gain Small Most minor of all the calculations Is the amount lo lie spent for transportation. The Philadelphia Rauld Transit Company uoost- ed its business by $110.000 durint, Ihe 1936 Democratic Convention and its successor, the Philadelphia Transit Company, is figured for i 4.6 per cent cut of the 1940 gross or $552,000, ' The Chamber of Commerce, in releasing its calculations, pointed out an" additional profit which would not be listed in money, in 193G, Philadelphia received ti,000 columns of newspaper space telling of Us historic shrines, its traditions and Us facilities. Despite the enormous anticipated revenues, business groups insisted that profiteering would be kept at an Irreducible minimum. "I believe that there will be absolutely no profiteering. Room rates will not be raised." said Daniel Crawford, Jr.. president of the Philadelphia Holel Association SCHApHORH HELIGOLAND 0JGHT Clearing skies over Germany's 330-mile North Sea coastline bring new raids by British bombers n,s the coming of sprint 1 permits resumption of war in the ah.
