PAGE 16 THE SUN, BALTIMORE, SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 21, 1S44 9 QUESTIONED IN DEATH OF FORMER WAAC Police Still Seeking Man Named By Murdered Girl Seeking a solution of the fatal stabbing of a 26-year-old woman war worker here early yesterday morning, police last night ques tioned nine persons, but made no arrests. The woman, Miss Evelyn Acker, a former member of the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps, was stabbed four times in the chest at the corner of St. Paul and Read streets at about 5.15 A. M. and died a short time later at the Mercy Hospital. Two Men Sought Two persons being sought by the police are a man whose first name was mentioned by the woman just before she died and an unidentified white man who reported the stabbing to the hospital and then ran cff before he could be questioned. During the late afternoon and last night, five men and four women were questioned by Capt. Henry J, Kriss, head of the detective bu reau, and Detective Lieutenant William Feehley in the captain's office. All were released. One of the men remained in the captain's office from late afternoon until after 10 P. M. Another was identified as an employe of the Bethlehcm-Fairfield Shipyard, Inc where Miss Acker was employed. Police Heads Noncommittal Both Captain Kriss and M. Jo scph Wallace, chief inspector of police, declined to discuss the progress of the investigation in detail and refused to indicate what motives the police suspect or what clues they are being guided by When he left his office for home shortly after 11 P. M., Captain Kriss told a reporter: "The only thing you can say is that from your observation the de tective bureau worked until late at night on the case." Probe Going Slowly From other sources at police headquarters, however, it was learned that the investigation oi the slaying was proceeding slowly although earlier yesterday police had anticipated a quick arrest. According to police, a number of neighbors of Miss Acker, who lived at 915 St. Paul street, several houses north of Read street, saw her being stabbed without realizing what was happening. Woman's Statement Attracted by screams, Mrs. J. L. Gilbert, of 816 St. Paul street, said she looked out her third-floor bedroom window and saw a tall, dark-haired man in a lumberman's jacket apparently pummeling a woman with his fist. Mrs. Lee Maniey and Miss Dorothy Black, who have the first floor front apartment at 915 St. Paul street, also heard the screaming. They said they had walked to the front door to talk with Private James Rogers, who had stopped by on his way to his post at the Aberdeen Proving Ground. Rogers walked toward the corner to investigate, the women said and then called back to them; "A man and a woman are fighting in the street up here." "Don't Get Mixed Up In It" "Well, don't get mixed up in it," Mrs. Maniey and Miss Black said they advised him. Rogers, they said, nodded and started up the street toward the Pennsylvania Station. Police were first informed of the stabbing in a telephone call from Miss Katherine Brady, occupant of a first-floor apartment at 904 St. Paul street. Miss Brady told police that, after being awakened by screams and pleadings, she looked out a window (Continued on Page 10, Column 5) Wastepaper Collection There will be no wastepaper collection in Baltimore today or next Saturday, October 28. The next collection will be in the eastern section of the city on November 4. Girl Enrollment At Morgan Overflows Into Men's Section Enrollment of women this year at Morgan State College is so great that, with their own dormitory crowded, they h ave filled the men's dormitory and parlors and reception rooms, which have been converted into sleeping quarters. Dr. D. O. W. Holmes, president of the Negro institution on the Hillen road, said last night. Addressing a session of the annual meeting of the Maryland Educational Association, an organization of Negro teachers. Dr. Holmes announced that the war has taken such a toll of male students that there are only 96 enrolled this year, 49 living on the campus. Special sleeping arrangements had to be made for them when the girls took over the men's dormitories. Normal Rate Is 250 Had the male enrollment remained this year at its normal rate ff 250 students, the total enrollment would have been 850, a number far exceeding prospects when the institution became a State college in 1939. At that time it was rstimated that the school would reach a 1.000-student total in 1950.

JACKSON SOUGHT HELP, COHEN SAYS Asked Aid In Labor Strrke, AFL Leader Asserts Harry Cohen, president of the Teamsters' Joint Council (AFL) yesterday testified that he was asked by former Mayor Howard W Jackson to help relieve labor troubles in the Department of Public Works in 1940 when employes of that department went on strike. Mr. Cohen was called as a wit ness by counsel for the Municipal Chauffeurs, Helpers and Garage Employes, a local union, which is a defendant, along with the city, in a Circuit Court suit filed by two taxpayers asking that the 1944 con tract between the union and the city be declared invalid. "Listen, Harry" Declaring the contract to be un lawful, the taxpayers particularly complained of its provisions for the check off of union dues by the city and thp "task" system of work under which an employe is able to receive two days' pay by working only eight hours. Mr. Cohen quoted the former Mayor as saying: "Listen, Harry, I don't want any union, but if we have to have a union we prefer the A. F. of L." The labor leader testified he addressed a mass meeting of strik ers and told them to go back to work, asserting that the union would refuse to organize workers on strike. Tells Of Advantages The witness denied, on cross- examination by Willis R. Jones, counsel for the taxpayers, that the check-off system has increased the payment of dues. He also denied that shop stewards in the depart ment seek union memberships. Mr. Cohen asserted that advan tages of the union contract are job security, wage increases and better working conditions. Chief Judge W. Conwell Smith, presiding at the trial, continued the hearing until Tuesday. Three Men Are Fined In Gas-Ration Cases Two Hagcrstown filling-station operators and a former Baltimore shipyard worker yesterday pleaded guilty before Judge W. Calvin Ches nut, in Federal Court, to gasoline ration violations and were fined. Charles G. Byrd, service station operator in Hagerstown, was fined $150 and costs on a charge of un lawfully receiving and transferring B-2 and inventory gas-ration cou pons. A $100 fine was imposed on Gerald L. Barlup, also a Hagers town service-station operator, on a charge of unlawfully receiving and transferring about 200 C-2 coupons. Lee Carroll Felts, of the 400 block West Cold Spring lane, a former employe of the transportation committee at a local shipyard, ad mitted accepting unused coupons from other employes for whom he filed applications for supplemental gasoline supplies. He was fined $100. Granted Leave To Enter Navy Albin O. Kuhn, extension agron omist at the University of Mary land for more than four years, has been granted a military leave of absence to enter the navy as an en sign. Dr. T. B. Symons, director oi the University of Maryland Extension Service, announced yesterday. expenditure of $1,265,000, Dr. Holmes told his audience of teachers in the auditorium of the Douglass High School that they must see to it that the same provision is made for Negro higher education as for white higher education in the State. He urged the teachers to inspire their students with a desire for higher education. 7 Battles On Teaching Front Walter N. Ridley, president of the American Teachers Association and head of the department of psychology at Virginia State University, Petersburg, Va., told the teachers they have seven major battles to wage on the teaching front. He called them the battles of intelligent participation in life, the battle of emotional stability and strength, the battle of physical well-being, the battle of economic independence, the battle of well-directed energies, the battle of the development of social interpretation and the battle of social justice. Teachers should lead in these battles, he said, and drill their students to be participants in them. The meeting will close this morning with a session at the Douglass High School.

N. Aycr, of San Francisco president of the National Associa tion of Apartment House Opera tors, addressing representatives o local real estate interests at the Lord Baltimore Hotel last night declared "the policy written into the multitude of regulations and interpretations of the Office of Price Administration's rent divi sion is not to control rent, but profits." He charged that the division means "to keep the property owner completely shackled, and to make the private ownership of invest ment property positively unattrac tive. . Communists Mentioned "Property owners," he declared can expect neither sympathy nor fair treatment from OPA's rent di vision while men remain in key positions in Washington whose years of adult life have been spent in association with Communists and Communist-front organiza tions. "I cannot believe that men whose bedfellows in 1940 and '41 and earlier were people committed to the doctrine of destruction of the right of private ownership of prop erty and of our constitutional form of government can now have so changed their philosophy as to have any interest in, or sympathy for the owner of property. Gives Names Of Two "I refer to men like Tom Tippet, director of field operations in the rent division and Tom Emerson, in charge of the OPA Enforcement Division. Wartime controls and wartime taxation must go, and they must go before the resistance of a vast bureaucracy interested largely in holding its own jobs against the uncertainties of the un known future makes it impossible for us to rid ourselves of these shackles." Private enterprise must provide jobs for 12,000,000 more workers than were employed in 1941 and plan for higher standards of living or be willing to pay high taxes to maintain millions of unemployed on the dole, Mr. Ayer declared. Says Unemployment Must Go "If the cancer of unemployment remains in our midst, the people become restless and discontented: stronger government controls are demanded, and the way is opened to powerful, centralized government," he said. Urging businessmen "to set their sights high and promote "creation of an expanding economy," Mr. Ayer said there was an "unprecedented demand" for housing, grow ing out of the facts that houses are wearing out at the rate of 500,000 a year and in the last four years 7,000,000 couples 1,500,000 above normal have married, but relatively few have set up housekeeping.

TALLY SEEN BY NOV. 12 Count, To Begin Afte At-Home Canvass, To Take Up To 3 Days By LOl'IS J. O'DONNELL A survey of the State's county election officials yesterday dis closed that they expect to take from half a day to three days to count absentee service ballots. This, proportionately, conforms with the forectist of James L. Hen negan, president of the Baltimore Board of Supervisors, who said it will take "two weeks at the abso lute minimum" to examine and count the approximately 25,000 ab sentee ballots expected in the city The counting of the absentee bal lots cannot, under the service-vote law, start until after the official canvass of the at-home vote. The law specifies that the tallying of the service vote Is to be undertaken "immediately after" the canvass which also is set by law to start at noon on November 9. Poll Books Are Out Members of the boards of super visors in a number of the counties said they had not been able to reg ister unregistered absentees who have returned ballots because the poll books have been out of the voting places for the last two weeks for the October county registra tions. The books, they said, were re turned only on Thursday and a number added that they planned to start registrations for absentees next week. Many of them interpreted the provision of the law which permits the hiring of extra clerks to do the registering of absentees 15 days be fore the election to mean that the registering was to be done in that period, they said. Registrations Up To Date Six county election officials said they have their registrations up to date and in most cases the work has been done by members of the board. These counties are Cecil Harford, , Howard, Montgomery Queen Anne's and Talbot. All county officials said they would be able to complete the canvass of the at-home vote in their counties on the day set for it, November 9 Many, where there are not many voting districts, said that job would be completed in a few hours. Officials of counties where only a few hundred absentee ballots are expected, estimate that they will be able to complete the whole task in one sitting and have final results for the county on Thursday night Two To Three Days However, the officials of larger counties Allegany, Baltimore, Montgomery and Prince George's for example report that they ex pect it will take from two to three days to tally the absentee vote after the completion of the canvass of the at-home balloting. ine comment or tne various county officials follows: ALLEGANY -Harold A.

Tributes To Jimmy These were the assorted trib utes to Jimmy Wolfe, 11, who lives at 600 East Pratt street, and who performed the amazing feat of pulling himself up, hand-over-hand, on elevator control ropes after break ing his leg in a 43-foot fall down an elevator well after plunging through the skylight of a ware house adjoining his home. Jimmy, in his bed in the chil dren's ward at Mercy Hospital, was not excited about being a wonder boy. "Anyone who wanted to get out as bad as I did could have done it," Jimmy said. "It hurt as climbed and I had to rest at little ledges along the way. I was scared. I don't know just what it was was scared of, but I wanted to get out of there. I didnt cry because I was too busy and I didn t think of anything much. Jimmy's In Bandages Jimmy, his upper lip swollen and bruised, his chin bandaged, and his right leg in a cast, was unim pressed by public attention. "Of course I had climbed lots of trees," Jimmy said. But he hadn't climbed any trees with his right leg fractured in two places. Hospital doctors have written on the cast on Jimmy's leg these words: "The Fighting Marines. Com mando Jimmy Wolfe." But the little boy in the bed was still a little boy and his mother, waving to him across the ward be cause of hospital rules which kept her from his bedside, caught her breath to see him there.

Oct. 20 The Maryland Court of Appeals today docketed for a hearing on Thurs day an appeal from the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court decision upholding the constitutionality of the proposed amendment to reor ganize the State's Appellate Court Noah Hillman, Annapolis attor ney, appealed frpm a decision by Judge James E. Boylan, Jr., who dismissed Hillman's petition asking that the proposed amendment be judged unconstitutional and upheld a demurrer to the petition. The demurrer was filed on behalf of the Anne Arundel county elec tion supervisors by William C. Walsh, Attorney General; Hall Hammond, Deputy Attorney General, and Wilbur R. Dulin, county attorney. Allowed To Intervene Judge Boylan allowed William J. McWilliams, Secretary of State, to intervene in the case after McWilliams stated he was responsible for having the proposed amendment printed on State ballots. The amendment is scheduled to be referred to the voters in the November 7 election. Hillman sought to have the amendment stricken from the county ballot on the ground that it was unconstitutional. The Court of Appeals' decision in the case will be State-wide in effect because of the intervention of McWilliams. The amendment, introduced into the last General Assembly by the Bond commission, would reduce the number of appellate judges from eight to five and would redistrict the judicial circuits of the State. Scientific Apparatus , Glass Blowing Laboratory Furniture Thanks and appreciation are extended to the customers of the Ferguson .Company for their indulgence and patience during- the period the facilities of the company were devoted to war contracts. In an effort to assist in the war effort, the normal business of the organization was necessarily curtailed and restricted. Post-War planning is normal business, but, the war must be won first It is the earnest hope and prayer of everyone that the Allied Military Forces will bring an early victory over our enemies and that a lasting peace will be accomplished by the statesmen of the world. It is fitting that the proprietor of the Ferguson Company should announce that this month (October, 1944) rounds out twenty-five years of ex-, perience in developing scientific apparatus for laboratory uses, glass blowing for special purposes and laboratory furniture for any need.

Mrs STORM TO END BY NOON, LOCAL BUREAU SAYS City, State Hit By 'Nice Old - Fashioned Northeaster' Baltimore and all of Maryland got a good drenching yesterday as heavy, driving rain and winds that reached gale force in some sections swept the entire State. Called '"a nice, old fashioned northeaster" by Joseph Bily, assist-ant meteorologist at the lorI Weather Bureau, the storm was said to be "Influenced" by a hurri cane that struck a part of Cuba and Horida, leaving destruction and a possibility of 37 deaths in its wake. No Longer Hurricane The storm, centered over North Carolina yesterday afternoon and moving north-northeastward at 20 to 25 miles an hour, lost its hurricane characteristics after entering soumern Georgia, Mr. BUv ex plained. However, he predicted that the rain, with winds reaching betvteen 30 and 40 miles an hour, or gale proportions, would continue until this morning, when the storm wUl abate. Skies will start clearina about noon, Mr. Bily said. Tomorrow is expected to be bright and sunny, with a rise in temperatures. 25-Mile Winds Winds of 25 miles an hour blew cohsistently in Baltimore yesterday as three inches of rain felL beginning at 9.10 A. M. At Ocean City the Coast Guard reported 39 mile-an hour winds, heavy rains and a strong sea, but far from the force of waves during the last storm, which tore up Urge sections of the boardwalk. The Bureau of Sewers here re ported that several sewers were choked by debris which clogged intakes. The bureau s help also wss asked by a few residents having trouble with home sanitary connections. An attache of the bureau said clogging of pipes by debris was the cause and not a backing up of rain water- 'Communication Trouble Several minor communication delays were reported by the Chesa peake and Potomac Telephone Company in several sections of the State, These were of no greater proportions than during any heavy rain, telephone officials said. Umbrellas were turned inside out, many of them at the gusty corners of Lexington and Liberty streets and at Baltimore and Light streets.
