THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIA^', FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 1933 15 Alleged J. P. Symes Benefited Financially in Certain Lease Negotiated (Continued From Page Two) to Bftrrett and Hllp, San Francisco contractors. That n second agreement wns signed on th(S same day, as the first, which permitted the state to buy the building for Us actual cost -plus a profit of $100,000 to tho owners. • , M«ge« on Stand Harry H. Magee, Snn Francisco real ' estate dealer, admitted that he was Introduced to .Holland A, Vanrtegrlft, state director of finance, by Symes. , '.'pid the fact he was Governor Rolph's' son-in-law have anything to do with your selecting him?" asked Sheridan Downey, attorney for the committee. "Maybe It did," replied Mngee. After Magee found It a hopeless task . to obtain financial aid In constructing the building, he Interested Byrnes, he •aid. Symes, In turn, persuaded Varney to Invest "up to $600,000" In the bulldog. 'Aftir the contract with the state •was signed, Magee and Varney agreed to give .Symes {30,000 as his share of tho profits In case tho building were ultimately wold to the state, Varney tak*ng 160,000 and Magee $20,000, the witness added. "Wasn't that ft rather small share for 1 you, Inasmuch as you had done all the work on this deal?" Mngee was asked. "Not at all. I was glad to get that much out of It." Had you heard that Sir, Symes planned to divide his share with someone else?"' , "No, I hadn't, and I don't believe he did." "Lucky Break" J. V. Barrett, of the firm of Barrett & Hllp, said that he was able to make 0 profit of $41,000 on the deal because of a lucky break In tho market on building supplies. The total cost was raised by $38,000 because the state's inspectors insisted upon nothing but the. finest materials obtainable, he said. "The trouble was," observed Senator J. M. Inman, chairman of the committee,- "that the state had a champagne appetite and a boor Income." Existence of the so-called "secret agreement" was disclosed by Webb Shadle, attorney for the state department of finance. Instead of. the $550,000 purchase price specified In the first option, It called for u price representing the cost plus a $100,000 profit to the owners. Comments on Deal "I think It Is an extraordinary procedure for the state of California to enter Into this kind of a deal, under which It might allow some Innocent purchaser to buy the building for $500,000 when at the same time the state had another option, unrecorded, to buy at a price of about $200,000 less," said Attorney Downey. After the hearing closed, Symes, the governor's son-in-law, Issued a statement denying any connection with the dealings between Magee and Vande- rrlft for the building. He .said he was able to Interest Varney In the transaction, after which he was given 80.per cent of the company's stock. "Any Inference that I have, at any time, offered to give any of my Interest to anyone else is an utter falsehood," he declared. Tlhe committee's hearings will not resume until February 6. They will continue throughout the month, adjourning- to Los Angeles for the last four .or five days.
