4 Honolulu Star-Bulletin, Saturday, April 21, 1945 Senate To Probe Tavares' Reason For Not Removing Bishop Trustees The senate adopted unanimously today a resolution by Senator Wil-71iam H. Heen asking Attorney General C Nils Tavares to explain why he has not brought proceedings for removal oi the trustees oi tne Bemice Pauahi Bishop estate. The resolution requests the attorney general to report on Tuesday, April 24, at 11 a. m. or as soon thereafter as he may be heard. He is to report "on any action taken by him under resolution adopted by the senate of the 22nd session of the legislature of the territory of Hawaii on April 24, 1943 directing the attorney general promptly to institute and press proceedings for the removal' of the trustees under the will and of the estate of Bernice Pauahi Bishop, deceased. m m m '- The removal was to be "for failure by their own admission, to observe and carry out the specific requirements of the trust instrument," m m m Senator Heen said this action should not include those trustees who may have been appointed since the adoption of the resolution by the 1943 legislature. In debate preceding adoption, he said "the trustees, by their own admission before the 1943 senate, said they had not carried out provisions of the will as regards the Kame-hameha boys and girls' schools." Senator Heen was one of the key figures in the 1943 fight which saw the reduction of .fees of Bishop es tate trustees of more than $12,000 to about 5,uuo a year. mom Several days ago nine senators introduced a bill creating a $12,-000 maximum for commissions collected by trustees of charitable trusts. u ' m m Senator Heen asserted that today's resolution Is not in answer to the new bill. "This resolution is not an answer its purpose is to find out what's what," he said. m m m Bishop estate trustees during the 1943 senate hearings were George M. Collins, John K. Clarke, Frank E. Midkiff and Edwin P. Murray. Joseph B. Poindexter was appointed a trustee July 9, 1943, to take the place of E. Faxon Bishop who died here February 11, 1943. The attorney general of the ter ritory at that time was Garner Anthony. Mr. Tavares had no comment today, saying he had not received the resolution Senate Approves 20 F&lilllon Dollar Classification. Bonus Proposal The territorial senate, at a three hour session Friday evening ap proved a classification and bonus plan affecting all government em ployes, teachers, policemen and liremen, which will mean an ex tra $20,348,520 in their pockets dur ing the next biennium. . m m m The motion, made by Senato-Harold W. Rice and seconded bott by Senator Charles H. Silva ant Ernest N. Heen, adopted by a 9 .to 3 vote, does the following: 1. The present basic single sal ary schedule for teachers is in creased $25 monthly. 2. The present basic salary sched ule of government employes is increased $15. 3. Police and firemen returned to the salary schedules enacted by the 1943 legislature. (Salaries under Hawaii defense act rule 88 are eliminated.) v 4. Teachers and government employes will receive a $50 monthly bonus effective July 1. (A similar bonus is now being paid.) 5. Policemen and firemen will receive a $35 monthly bonus. (The senators agreed the foregoing plan was the most equitable at hand for equalizing the salaries granted that teachers are basically receiving $12 a month less . than similar government employes and the 1943 schedule for policemen and firemen represented a 26 per cent increase.) 6. Territorial department heads, who have been given large increases in the omnibus salary bill, in which the foregoing have been in corporated, will not receive the $50 bonus or the $15 increments. 7. Police in Maui, Kauai and Ha waii counties will not receive the $15 monthly increase and will receive a $35 monthly bonus. 8. All county elective officers shall not be in classification. They shall receive flat fixed salaries. 9. The provision for time and one half for overtime was revised so that overtime shall be the hours worked in excess of what constitutes the "normal work week." (In the case of the Honolulu police the normal work week is 51 hours, for example.) 10. The personnel director is mandated to set up annually ade quate specifications for all classes of positions covered by classiii cation. The specifications shall be presented to the governor annually and to the legislature each time it meets. Paul J. Thurston, director of the bureau of the budget, estimated that this salary scheme will cost the ter ritorial government an additional $20,348,520 if cost of county bonuses are borne by the territory. If these are paid by the counties and city-county, the territorial bill will come to $15,000,000. Senators voting in favor of the plan as finally adopted were Aka-na, Brown, Crane, Crozier, E. N Heen. W. H. Heen, Rice, Silva and Sylva. Senators Fernandes, Gomes and' Capellas voted No. Absent were Senators Pedro Campbell and Hill. lent Control Board To Back Izac Proposals Sweeping revision of the residence rent control ordinance for the city-county of Honolulu are under consideration now. Backed by recommendations by the house naval afairs subcommittee on congested areas, Rent Control Administrator Lawrence M. Judd said today he will ask that the rsnt control commission consider the Izac report, and recommend thst the mayor and supervisors amend the rent control ordinance in whatever way the commission considers ad visable. The recommendations of the con gressional subcommittee were made public in The Star-Bulletin Fri day. o Recommendation 18 says: "To put teeth in its enforcement of rent .control, the local board of supervisors should amend the local basic ordinance to provide for the revocation of renting licenses upon violation of rent control regulations. Such is far more effective than fines." a m o Another recommendation is that enforcement personnel be added to the staff of the rent control com mission. David R. Owens, chairman of the commission,- says a recommendation to effect this change was made three weeks ago, and is now under consideration by the supervisors. A further recommendation re garding enforcement powers is that the commission be authorized to be represented in court when its own orders are legally attacked. m m m Two other recommendations are for modification of restrictions in the ordinance which discourage rental of unused housing, and construction of new housing. - m m m In an attempt to encourage new construction, Mr. Lawrence said, the commission went on record in this respect on June 17, 1944. On that date Mr. Owens sent a letter to the mayor and supervisors asking that it be empowered to establish maximum rent ceilings and minimum standards, without following requirements in the ordinance that these compare with existing buildings. He recommended that this provision apply only to buildings constructed since the freeze date, May 27, 1941, under authorization of the federal housing authority. The mayor and supervisors decided on August 8 not to follow this recommendation. Referring to action taken by the finance committee of the board Friday, however, Mr. Judd said the supervisors are now reconsidering that decision. Flying Forts J lit Targets In Munich Section LONDON, April 21. (U.R) More than 300 Flying Fortresses today smashed at railway and airfield targets in the Munich area, following up a nightlong RAF assault on besieged Berlin. T An American communique said that the heavy bombers, escorted by about 400 Mustangs and Thunderbolts,, attacked railway yards at Munich and Ingolstadt and an airfield at Lands berg, 30 miles west of Munich. The American announcement revealed that Yank bombers dropped more than 25,000 tons of explosives on Berlin since the opening of the daylight air offensive on March 4, 1944. Veto Mb Ye Fails An attempt to override the governor's veto of SB 85, authorizing payment of $6,000 to John De Mello Jr.. failed to pass by a 9 to 4 vote today. The motion was made by Senator Francis JC Sylva. A two thirds majority of 10 votes is required to oweride a veto. The matter may be brought up later wheji additional senators are present. Senator J. B. Fernandes was excused to return to Kauai for the weekend and Senator Pedro is in a hospital here. The payment is for alleged loss of equipment on a 1927 contract for the Kaimuki pumping station. 1 rill' (mi O Brushless Burma-Shav Is dlHartnf ...ven ihs toughest whiskers stand up so your razor can cut them off ...makes having a pieasuro ... loaves tho skin soft and velvety.

The 5th army continued the attack across the Bologna-Modenan highway into the Po valley, cutting off any German escape from Bologna to the northwest. Both Allied armies were aided by South African troops, who smashed into Casalecchio, three miles southwest of Bologna, in the preliminary phase of the fighting. Man Hit On Head Bundles Dies Yanks Find 220 Charred Bodies Of Prisoners By HAL BOYLE THELKA. Germany. April 21. (JPi The charred bodies of 220 political prisoners, who were snrayed with flaming acetone and burned and shot to death just before American troops captured this Leipzig suburb, still were sprawled today in postures of agony. moo Some lay in the ruins of the concentration camp's barracks. Others were caught on the sharp spikes of barbed wire enclosing the camp. Of 324 Polish, Russian. Czech. Yugoslav, Frencji and Italian political prisoners in the camp only about 80 survived. A Czech barber who managed to short circuit the electrically charged barbed wire en closure led them to safety. This atrocity took place in Plant No. 3 of the Erla works, which made Messerschmitt airplane parts. The camp, in the middle of the factory buildings, was a division of the notorious Buchenwald, murder factory near Weimar. From here the Germans were marching prisoners by the hundreds to points farther east until last Saturday. When " guards learned the United States 9th armored division had swung around east of Leipzig, they decided to destroy the last 324 left on their hands. moo All were scheduled to be killed that night, Tuesday, said the Czech barber, Carl Tykaul, but for some reason the guards decided to wait until the next day. During the night j 30 men managed to climb over the fence. Most of them had hid in holes and corners of the factory. 'To get them out of hiding, the guards went around the next day carrying big steaming cans of potato soup and shouting that all who came out would be fed. Most of those hiding were so hungry they fell for this trap." Okinawa Yanks Gain By Yards By AL DOPKING ' GUAM, April 21.

W-The army newspaper Stars and Stripes today vetoed a suggestion by Senator Magnuson (D.-Wash.) that it select a combat soldier to represent the GIs at the world security conference in San Francisco. "The typical GI would be a two headed calf at the world conference for a dignified study of a confusing situation," the newspaper said, adding that the soldier would be wined, dined and flattered but would be completely bewildered by the complexity of the problems to be examined. America's eight trained delegates are competent to represent soldier opinion as well as the rest of the nation, the paper said, "and that's good enough for us." ence are expected by diplomats here to keep a firm control over amendments, to the Dumbarton Oaks proposals for world organization, but many changes are to be made with the agreement of the Big tour. The conference opening next Wednesday will see the first working out of the principal of big power responsibility which is to be written into the world organization itself the principle that on final decisions the major nations should at all times concur. Thus it appears unlikely that the United States, British, Soviet or Chinese delegations will allow any critical differences to develop amonc themselves although in their behind the scenes negotiations they may have a tough time reconciling some of their views. First indications were that a sDirit of high hopes for success in creat ing a world security system dominates those delegates who ar either already here or on their way. iC van wirisuan omuts, aoum Atn- w ) can prime minister and the first major delegate to arrive, said he had "very good expectations of tha work we will accomplish." By ALEX SINGLETON BRISTOL, England. April 21. (JPi Prime Minister Churchill said to- day "a world organization which we must build and shall build will be free and open to all the nations of the world." mum Speaking only a few days before the opening of the world security conference at San Francisco, Britain's wartime leader asserted that "nations must live in peace and justice with one another," thus envisaging the ulti- f mate inclusion of even present enemy nations in a world peac organization. m m m He added significantly: "There must be always the neces sary force to restrain aggression.' WASHINGTON. April 21. (JP) British Foreign Minister Anthony Eden said today "we .are in complete agreement on all points" after a conference with Secretary of State Edward R. Stettinius. The two persumably discussed the attitude they will take on the ticklish Polish problem at their meeting with Soviet Foreign Commissar V. M. Molotov, who is expected here tonight or tomorrow. m m m Mblotov's delay in reaching Washington has left very little time for the Big Three to settle the broad range of problems facing them and both Mr. Eden and Mr. Stettinius appeared to be growing impatient. a m m Mr. Eden was asked if he knew when Mr. Molotov would get here and he said he did not. Then a reporter asked him when he would leave for San Francisco. "Those two things are connected, he replied. , Aother part of the hurried international discussions taking place here was carried on at the White House where U. S. Ambassador to Russia W. Averell Harriman spent three quarters of an hour talking with President Truman. ID Obituaries MRS. DOROTHY C. BENSON The Rev. Anson P.
