SIX HOK STAR, HOPE, Wednesday, December 13, )939 Transfer of U.S. Ships Is Blocked Maritirfte 'Commission Is Angry at Secretary Hull By PRESTON GROVER WASHINGTON — The Maritime Commission still is disgruntled over the State Department action in snowing under ths plan to let jobless shins transfer to foreign flags whsrs they could continue to do *-"siness without neutrality law restraint. A fleet of nine freighters of the United States lines had nil tut completed the transfer to Panama registry, when, tango. Secretary Hull attacked it es an unmoral evaaioh of the neutrality act. The "reason the Maritime Commission — unofficially .of curse — was so annoyed was the realization -that most Amarican-owned ships engaged in foreign commerce already are' operating under foreign registry. When the neutrality act went into effect there were approximately 300 vessels operating under American registry. At the same time there were 454 American -owned ships under foreign flags. This included 183 owned outright by American corporations, and 271 owned by foreign corporations which in turn were wholly owned by American companies, such as the Panama Transportation company, owned by Standard Oil of New War Planes 'Hitch-Hike' to Canada Via Tow-Line Jersey. Pome Ccn Go, Seme Not Not all these Yankee-owned foreign flag ships sail into the forbidden zones. All of them can. however, while those Yankee ships confined to-American flag registry hvae to stick around in the safer zones of the Pacific or Western Hemisphere pickings are thinner. where freight Freezing about the Maritime Commission offices, you get the impression that they think Secretary Hull and certain administration cohorts got mad at the proposed transf sr reaction, and not because of any high- flung moral reasons. But pherhaps, it won't mattre. If the worst comes to the worst for the Allies, they can always come over and buy freight ships now rusting idly at their anchor chains. There is no law against selling the ships to belligerents, so long as they.don't mount guns. Pure as the .Snow , But enough of sea-going stuff. We take you now to the Civil Service Commission where an examiner tells a story o£ a young woman taking a stenographic test. All in a dither she came up to the examiner's desk to ask: 'Do I have 'to answer all the questions, every one?" "Of course," said the axaminer. The lassie went back to her chair, chewed her finger nails in evident embarrassment, then hastily wrote a word and threew her paper on the examiner's desk as she dashed outside. Puzzle dover her embarrassment, the examiner opened her paper. She had given her name, addrss, ag and all th usual items, but when she came to fill -out the blank after the wor "Sex" she penned: "Never."

Handouts delivered to newsmen by the British embassy carry the nice salutation: 'With the Ambassador's compliments." UNITED STATES Because treaties between the United States and Canada will not fcermit armed war planes to fly over the border, planes built in the United States and sold to Canada are flown to the International line, • landed, and towed, across by automobile.
