Council Hears Report Of Sewer Strength; Only One Core Fails in Test First Boring Sample Collapses Under 2,476 Pounds Pressure, 571 Below Standard; Other Cores Show More Than Required A report cn the compressive strength of five cores taken from the second section of the Cedar Brook storm sewer was submitted to the Common Council last evening by Chairman Leon M. Hannaford of the speciar sewer committee. One core, the first one taken, was 571 pounds under the required strength and the other four were well over the required strength. The report is not conclusive by any means, Mr Hannaford stated. The nrst coie was iium uie supposed to withstand a pressure of 3,000 pounds to the square inch. It collapsed at 2,478 corrections, gave it a strength Other ("ores Stand Up Well The second core, from the bottom of the suvcr. required tovwithstand a pressure . f 2,500 pounds to the squ.ire inch, let go at 2,997 pounds, r . correct o:2, at 2.937 pounds. There-fo:e the . .1 core had an excess strength of 431 pounds. The third core, from the top of the .-ewer, withstood a pressure of 4 .3 i-S pounds or 1.308 pounds in excess of requirements.

Vice-Chicellor Malcolm G. Buchanan today approved plans of the Elizabeth Trust Company to take over part of the assets and most of the deposit liabilities of the People's Banking and Trust Company; under the plan announced by StateBanking Commissioner Frank H. Smith several days ago. The vice-chancellor, in endorsing the plan, said that it was one in the public interest and for the welfare of depositors. He approved it without reservation. He denied requests for postponement of the approval made by John J. Griffin of Elizabeth, in behalf of the estate of Gen. Dennis F. Collins,' and by Prosecutor Abe J. David of Union county, who represented the directors of the People's Bank. Mr. Griffin based his request on the claims that the Collins estate owns 5,000 shares of the People's Bank stock and that the holders of the stock have not had time to acquaint themselves with the provisions of the plan. Mr. David said that the directors of the bank have named a committee to examine the conditions of the Elizabeth Trust Company's offer and asked a postponement until after the committee could report. The prosecutor paid, however, that personally he was heartily in favor of the trust company's proposal. Quen City & Home II. & L. Assoc.

Office 10T Park Ave.-Ad v. 7 Tipsy Drivers Lose Licenses; AreFined$200 Both Will -Appeal De cisions of Acting Judge ; Technicalities Brought Up at Hearing After lengthy hearings in Traf fic Court today, Harry J. Linker, 30, of 1179 West Front street, and Albert Ingham of Highland Park were both found guilty by Acting Judge Philip H. Moskovitz of charges of operating automobiles while intoxicated. A charge of leaving the scene of an accident was dismissed against Linker. Attorneys representing both motorists filed oral notices of appeal from the decisions on the drunken driving complaints. Linker was first found guilty of leaving the scene of an accident. but after Mr. Owens called the act ing judge's attention to the section of the traffic act under which the complaint was drawn, the charge was dismissed. The com plaint was drawn under Section 14, subdivision 4, which applies only to personal injury, whereas it should have been taken under Arti cle 2. Section 3 of the Traffic Act. Fines of $200 each were imposed on Linker ana ingnam on ine charges of driving while drunk. Their drivers' licenses also were automatically revoked for two- vear periods as the result of the decision. John W. Owens, attorney for Linker, moved that the charge against his client be dismissed on the erounds that the matter had been settled at a previous hearing, He declared that once a case is heard there must either be a ver dict of innocence or guilt returned and asserted that a dismissal of the complaint at a previous hear ing was nothing more than a dec laration of innocence. Linker's Caee Once Dismissed Linker was arrested May 30 by Patrolman Vesev. after Linker's car allegedly had been involved in a minor accident in West Front street. The case was tried before Actine Judge Moskovitz last month, but the charge was dis missed because of a defective com plaint, Linker being charged with driving while intoxicated in West Front street, whereas the officer did not see Linker drive the car until it reached Grant avenue and S uth Second street. From that point the officer chased the motor ist, arresting him across the city line in Dunellen. The second complaint was pre pared against Linker within the 30-day period of the alleged viola tion. At that time Linker was ar rested also on charge of leaving the scene of an accident. Sentence wa3 suspended against Linker on a charge of driving an automobile without having his driver's license with him. Linker's car s said to have struck an automobile owned by Edward Wakefield of 112 Sandford (Pleaee turn to page six.) .Next In Armament Washington (U.R) The Hoover administration has been victorious in its campaign for a year's international debt holiday and now intends to follow this by an equally vigorous movement for world disarmament, the United Press learned in high official quarters today.

David Baird. Jr., Re publican nominee for governor, opened his campaign In Union county before 400 Republicans here last night by pledging reduction of out a big vote. Frank H. Smith of I Plainfield, State commissioner of banking and insurance, his cam paign manager, was toastmaster at the dinner given in Mr. Baird s honor in the Eliaabeth-Carteret Hotel. Wise use of the tax rebates be ing made by the Legislature was also pledged by Mr. Baird, who said: "There has been some dispute as to the real value of the tax relief feature of the $100,000,000 program. I appreciate that in some places the contribution of the State to the local taxing districts was- not able to effect a definite reduction in taxes, but it was, nevertheless, a tax relief of $8,250,000. The taxpayers of the State would have had to contribute just this much more to local government costs, had this program not been put through. "Last Monday the Legislature had the opportunity to make further relief contributions to help the burdened taxpayers. The Legislature, I think very wisely, made the $6,- 500,000 tax relief apply to this year'e tax bill. When the money Is re ceived by the State treasurer from the settlement of the money ad vanced for the construction of the Camden bridge, the treasurer is instructed to forward his check to the taxing district in the State, which is to apply as credit of one mill on the $1 of valuation, real and personal property, in that tax ing district."

Good Go vern m en t Jo bs Open To Jersey Men and Women (Courier-Hew Washington Bureau) Washington, D. C There are 748 positions in the Federal departments in Washington that legal residents of New Jersey may obtain if they can qualify under the civil service rules and use the necessary persistent effort to get the jobs. Out of 1,241 positions in the Federal departments here to which New Jersey residents are entitled to hold under the law, only 493 are now rilled by them. Herbert, E. Morgan, assistant director of the recruiting division of the Civil Service Commission said every effort is being made by the commission to correct the situation. Conditions beyond control of the commission have brought about the present inequalities, he said. The commission is now carrying on an extensive newspaper and radio publicity campaign in New Jersey and throughout the United States in an effort to make quali-field persons government job minded. Notices of the examinations are sent regularly to New Jersey newspapers, and the examinations are broadcast weekly from stations WWRL, Woodside, L. I, N. Y, and WNYC, New York City. Nottoes of examinations are also posted in all first and second class postoffices in the State, schools and colleges, custom houses and other public places. The under-quota States are given preference in the certification of those qualifying in examinations To Erect Field House For Girls At P. H. S. Field Erection of a field hense for girls at the Plainfield High School Field is assured, as the Board of School Estimate last night granted the formal request of the Board of Ed ucation for a transfer of funds making money available to meet the expense of the field house. The transfer of the $6,500 from the current expense account to a capital outlay or new building account was approved by the Board or Estimate at the meeting, held in the office of Mayor Martin B. Stutsman. The request of the Board of Education followed a request made by the P.-TJV. of the high school several months ago asking that a field house be constructed. It was stated at that time that the Board of Estimate would probably give the matter approval provided that if at the end of the school year, which closed June 30. there was on hand a sufficient balance to meet the expenditure. Von Hindeiilmrg Sends Hoovei-Germans' Thanks Neudeck, Wet Prussia (U.R) President Paul Von Hindenburg telegraphed to President Hoover today the gratitude of the German people to the people of the United States for the successful accomplishment of the debt holiday.

That is the 41 States In ar rears in tne apportionment ere grouped as a whole and applicants from them are given preference over those in the over-quota column. That means if an applicant for a position living in New Jersey makes a grade of 7S on an examination he is given preference over one from Virginia making a grade of 96, for Virginia. has 1.877 positions in excess of her quota of 743. This preference given war veterans accounts in a large measure for the present wide disparity in the allotments for the various States, according to Mr. Morgan. Thousands of men entitled to military service preference turned to Uncle Sam to find jobs for several years after the end of the war. Another factor for this discrepancy, is the fact that residents in Slates near Washington and in the District of Columbia itself are "government job minded." whereas the citizens in more distant States are not "alive to the dumber of government jobs available to them in Washington. According to Mr. Morgan, a citizen of New Jersey who is seeking a departmental, civil service position in Washington has to travel only a short distance to take the examination. Examinations are held at the postoffices in the following New Jersey cities: Atlantic City, Camden, Newark, New Brunswick and Trenton. j Mercury Down.

THREE CENTS Wrld United In Moratorium To Save Reich ..Htm j::Ti xjuii t Fear; Laval 3IelIon Praise Pact ; Expect Congress O. K. Washington (U.R) The nations of the world were uniteu today in an effort inspired by Presidcnr Hoover to aid economic recover) by suspending war debt payments. With a smile of victory after two weeks of uncertainty and complicated negotiations, the President last night announced France's acceptance of his plan "in principle." All other countries involved had previously given their approval. The debt holiday actually will b retroactive to July 1, although the -official agreement reached at Paris dates it from today. It will last until June 30, 1932. Until then all governments, Including hard- pressed Germany, may keep at home hundreds of millions of dollars that otherwise would have to be paid out to meet world war debt and reparations obligations. World Recovery, HoovtrV Aim If Sir. Hoover' dream comes true, the year's respite not only will save Germany from threatened collapse but will restore confidence, stimulate trade, and help put th whole world on the road to better times. France's acceptance was embodied in a memorandum signed in Paris. It provides, in brief, that Germany shall have a year's rest from reparations and that detailed problems arising in connection therewith shall be submitted to committee of experts acting "within the f pirit of President Hoover's proposal." This means, according to fffciala here, that the experts may do nothing to whittle down the relief intended in the President's plan. "The accord is not perfect in aQ details. But the administration feels that the committee of experts can solve the technical problem! without difficulty, and that the Important thing is that all nations have agreed to cooperate in a pis a of mutual help. International payments of mon than 5SO0.0O0.O0O about half " which represent Germany's tributs of defeat will be postponed during the debt holiday. The United States will forfeit for a year $262.-000.000 in debt payments, subject to Congressional approval which Mr. Hoover feels he is assured.
