TUESDAY, APRIL 24 1951 BLYTHEVIU.E. (ARK,} COURIER NF.W» PAGE FTVE Gen, Charles Dawes, 'He// 'n Maria fame' Is Dead in Chicago UN Casualties in Korea CHICAGO. April 24. (AP)—Gen. Charles Gates (Hell 'n Maria) Dawes. banker and statesman who ^jlf fame in many fields during his cyclonic career, died suddenly last night, The 85-year-old former vice president, who served under President Coolidge from 1925-29. died of coronary thrombosis in his suburban F.vanslon hcme. He was stricken while talking to his wife, Caro. Dawes, who was in public lite for more than 30 years and often was the center of fierce contravenes and momentous events, had not been ailing, a family spokesman said. However, he said, Dawes, who was chairman of the board of the Cit.v National Bank and Trust Company, did not go to his office yesterday. Dawes had been named as honorary chairman of the committee to greet Gen. MacArthur on his Chicago visit Thursday and presumably planned lo attend the celebration. Success came to Dawes in bank- Ing and utilities. And he was prominent in public life—as vice president, as ambassador to Great Britain, as co-creator of the "Dawe.< Plan," and as the director of the government's $2,030,000.000 Recon structton Finance Corporation. H< also won fame as an author am A|n poser. *ITI the last decade Dawes kep pretty much out of the public spot light. He usually went to his office in La Salle Street daily. He adhcr ed to a policy of no interviews anc declined to give his views events, or present- Danes Won Nickname But It wasn't always so. Atte World War I he won the nicknam "HeVl 'n Maria" from his testimon. before a House committee invest! gating ' the administration of th War Department. And hLs underpins pipe—which appeared at first glance to be upside down—also typ- Ifien Dawes to the nation a generation ago. It was as "Hell 'n Maria" that America remerhber.v Dawes best. Dawes was a brigadier general with the A. E. F. In France In World War I and was assigned as general purchasing officer. Appearing before the House investigating committee, he was tasked:. "Isn't it true that excessive prices were paid for mules?" "Hell 'n Maria!" shouted the general. "I'd have paid horse prices for sheep if the .sheep could have hauled-artillery." Lonjr. • Civic leader .j^. Dawes, who was born In Marietta, ¥&' started hLs business life tn Lincoln. Nebr.,-. as a lawyer and in banking but he came to Chicago before the turn of the century. And for more than 50 years he was one o( the leaders In civic, banking and political circles. HLs brolher, Rufus, was associated, with him in his banking business. Early in his career as a banker, General Dawes only 31 years old, served as comptroller of the currency under President McKinlcy. In 192-1 Dawes was chairman of the committee of experts studying the war reparations problem. Out of their study came the Dawes reparations plan. For hLs work, he was •warded the 1925 Nobel Peace Prize, sharing it with Sir Austen Chamberlain, then British foreign secretary. After his term as vice president, Dawes served ss ambassador to Great Britain under President Hoover and later took over as head of he RFC. ! After he left the RFC! there was nuch criticism against Dawes over he RFC loan of $90,000,000 to his cttering Central Republic Bank i Trust Company during the de- >resslon. The loans were an issue the 1932 presidential-campaign. There was much court litigation but he bank ultimately ceased func- loning and the City National Bank •md Trust Company took over Its deposit liabilities.
