'BUT BXTTKI Of AMIS" AMES DAILY T1IBUWB Tt*!§, AMIi IOWA, THDMDAY, 8ZPT1MBEI 28, 1933. PAOBFtTB Shipping Board Uncovers Trail of Big Spending WASHINGTON. (f.P) — Senate investigators of Hoover administration ocean mail contracts and merchant ship construction loans sought Wednesday to determine •why a single steamship operator spent hundreds of thousands of dollars while seeking and obtaining funds from the United Slates treasury. •Henry Herbennan, president o! the Export Steamship corporation and the Steers Terminal corpora Lion, sharply deniW Tuesday that he had paid a $510 tailor bill for T V. O'Connor, United States shipping board chairman under two republican presidents. Chairman Black of the senate committee told questioners O'Connor probably would be summoned to testify before the hearing adjourned. J. Calllendo, New York tailor, to whose shop Herbennan testified he had been directed by O'Connor, may also be askgd to testify. So' far the democratic inquiry to determine whether political Influence or any other consideration figured in letting mail contracts or extending Joans has not progressed beyond the stage of insinuation. Inquiry by senate investigators extended to the Roosevelt line headed by Kermit Roosevelt, son of the late President Theodore Roosevelt, and controlled by the International Mercantile Marine, but Chairman Black refused to Indicate whether the Roosevelt line's contracts, would be brought up in the committee bearing . Black read into- the record a statement that the export steamship corporation was organized in 1019 with fl.OOO paid-in capital r.Jd $4,000 goodwill. Herberman testified he bought it a year later for 165,000 or $75,000 because the company had a franchise to operate ships for the government. From the steamship corporation and the Steers Terminal corpora tion, which he also owned, it was testified that from 1926 to 1932 he received 11,205,000 of which $556. 007 was in salary and dividends. The remainder was charged to vouchers for expenses, accounts receivable and undistributed accounts. Black demanded to know where this sum went, asking specifically where Herberman spent 53.000 here in one week . "That was my entertainment i and trying to get good will," the steamship operator answered. "Well, your application for a ship construction loan waa pending more than a year and the construction committee twice refused to approve it," Black said. "You got that thru, didn't you?" "Yes. and a tough job," said Herberman, "Cost a lot of money, eh?* 1 • "No. no," Herbernaan exclaimed. "I never spent money that way," i A* -Art rit rwp* % . f LAFAYETTE Twp.
