Par alysis spread steadily over the busy port of San Francisco's bil lion-dollar shipping activity today as major shipping lines joined the movemept to eliminate the city as a port of call until a current dispute with waterfront unions is setled. Mason Lines, One of the largest operators on the west coast, announced its S. S. Malolo, would remain in the San Pedro harbor until Sunday and then would sail oirectly to Honolulu without making its regular call here. Port Faces Shutdown The Matson's Monterey is due in Los Angeles the latter part of the week and it was intimated she would be held there if the local controversy were not settled by that time. Matson freighters now on the high seas also are expected to steer for San Pedro instead of San Francisco. Dollar and American-Hawaiian lines are following the same tactics. The Dollar line's S. S. President Coolidge is expected to remain in Los Angeles and to iail from there. Other lines instructed their captains to head for the port of Los Angeles, avoiding calls at their regular piers long San Francisco's Embarcadeio. The port, whose trade last year exceeded one billion dollars, faced a shutdown ds complete as that it experienced in tho 1934 maritime strike, when scores of ships stood at anchorage and for weeks the waterfront was as quiet as the interior of a cathedral.

Boliffard pleaded not guilty, ex plaining that he was drunk when he got the gas, that he did not intend to steal it and that he would gladly pay for it. "I'm glad the officers got me," Botiffard said, was pretty drunk and might have had a wreck. The charge was dismissed, but forthwith Bouffard was accused of being drunk on the highway. He hart alreariv admitted this, so was fined $10. He could not pay the fine and for the gas, too, so he is serving a 5-day sentence in the county jail. Bouffard was arrested by State Officer Winters and Chief of Police Chandler. TODAY'S SCORES iHr Unllrd lrru National League H. Boston 5 Philadelphia 7 H.

Increased wages for the 3.500,000 persons on work relief under the 1937 program for which President Roosevelt has asked an additional $1,-500,000,000 appropriation, were predicted today by "labor" congressmen. Rep. William P.

"I am going fully into the conditions in Jackson county, the law and all the facts in the Fehl case," Governor Martin said. "1 do not know when 1 will reach a decision." The governor indicated again he was giving Fehl's attorneys plenty of time to carry the parole ques tion to court to test an opinion by Attorney-General Van Winkle that prisoners could not be released before the end of their maximum terms except by pardon or parole by the governor.

'S Harrisburg, April 18. (Special) The First National bank of Harrisburg was under new management today, the result of reorganization efforts concluded late yes terday. The reorganization effee tive immediately brings to an end a bank fight which has lasted for 25 years. Under the deal, George J. Wil helm, head of the bank since its founding in 1907, has disposed of all of his stock in the institution. New president of the bank is C. J. Shedd, president of the Bank of Shedd. J. C. Clay, also of the Bunk of Shedd, is now cashier of the local hunk and is movintf hcru. William Wlndell, former cashier of the First National under the Wil-helm regime, will remain as assist ant cashier. A. J. Jacobs of Harrisburg is vice president. Directors are J. W. Bowers. Lewis Skirvin and Harold Stevenson of Harrisburg and L. L. Swann of Albany in addition to the officers. Capital stock of the bank was announced as $25,000 and its surplus as $0250. Stockholders of the reorganized bank are scattered from Albany to Junction City, most of them living in the Harrisburg vicinity. The reorganization is the result of three months of effort, during which plans were virtually abandoned several times but finally were put through when the Bank of Shedd took a hand. The bank was established under state laws by Mr. Wilhelm in 1907 (lMi'RRQ Turn to Pane Two) State Inspector Visits Ladies GAR Mrs. Leola M.

Democrats today acclaimed presidential primary results so far as evidence of an approaching Roosevelt landslide and republicans scanned returns for development of a decisive movement among party members toward any of the several aspirants to the GOP nomination.
