THURSDAY, JUNE G, 1947 BLYTI1EV1LLK (AHK.KiGOUKIEK NKWS Despot of Jersey City to Quit Job But' Dictator Hands Rule to Nephew, Who Will Be Acting Mayor JERSEY CITY. N. J., June 5. (UP) — Frank (I Am the Law) Hague, ruthless, bombastic leader of one of the most powerful polill- cald^iiachinos In the nation, an- noiin^p yesterday that he will retire on June n as mayor o[ Jersey City, which he has ruled with an iron hand tor 30 years. * The colorful Democratic boss, nationally known for his pugnacious battles against any attempts Ironi any quarter to end his absolute sway over the second largest city in New Jersey or threaten his powerful influence in state, and national politics, made his announcement with dramatic sud- dcncss. AS astonished newsmen scribbled their notes, the 72-year-old Hague added that his nephew, Frank Hague Eggers. would become acting mayor on June 17, and that he himself would continue as Jcrscj City, County and state Democratic leader and also would retain Jiis vice-nhainnanship of the Democratic National Committee. But his retirement as mayor on June 17 will mark the end of a political dynasty as powerful as any in a nation that has seen such political organizations as the Kelly- Nnsh machine in Chicago, the "Boss" Crump setup in Tennessee and tile one operated by the, late Tom Pendagast In Kansas City. "I decide," Hague once said when asked who decided what was good for Jersey City. "I do. Me. Right here. And if the people of Jersey Cit,v^tloii't like the way I run the tow^j'thev can get another mayor." And, although he ruled so des- potiMy that even freedom to re- mniimn the city depended on his sanction, he had set tin his machine with such organising genius that he was returned to office term after term.

NEW YORK, June 5. (UP)—John Ciampa, a "human ily" clad in a bright yellow shirt, cooly crawled up the side of the Astor Hole; yesterday. Pedestrians clogged Times Square traffic, motorists blew their horns, and natlent cops lost their tempers. But Ciampa. absorbed In what police termed a publicity stunt, kept right on climbing. Detective Samuel Brest probably got madder than anybody- Racing up to the Aster's- third floor, he leaned out a window and made a grab for Ciampa. He missed, however, and almost fell into the street. A half-dozen radio cars, two c- nicreency squads, mid a large number of patrolmen clustered around the hotel — looking up — but there wasn't much they could do about it. No one paid much attention when ciampa began his climb: He started up the brick wall on the 44th St. side of the hotel. Then, suddenly, someone yelled: "Hey, there's a man climbing." By this time, ciampa hud readied the first floor ledge. The crowd became n dense staring mass, just watching aiirt wailing. The "human fly" walked lightly I along a narrow ledge to the Broadway side pt the building. The crowd fascinated, moved '\vilh him. overflowing Broadway and stopping all traffic. : • ., Then Ciampa, realizing he had thousands for an audience, really put on a show. -Gripping crevices ', In the bricks with his fingers anS toes, he ascended to the third story. \ It was here that detective Brest made his lutile grab Brest would • Have fallen but someone grabbed him by the legs and yaiikcd him I back through the window. 1 Ciampa, probably startled by his near-capture, scampered around the ledge to 45lh Street and descended to the street where he was ' collared by police.
