UP) --The Arizona, carrying President Hoover and his party back to Washington, ran into cool bracing weather during the night .after a week spent in the tropics which left the faces of most of the party, including President Hoover's, burned to a deep red. The president turned to enjoyment of a complete rest in the three days which remain before the battleship reaches Norfolk and the party goes on to Washington. Hoover in a statement commented upon the progress the people of Porto Rico had made in self government and establishment of democratic institutions. His view of the Virgin Islands was less hopeful. He said that altho opinion was divided they might have some military value sometime, but that "when we paid $25,000,000 for them we acquired an : effective poprhouse, com- va popula- TIMOTHY HEALY, 76 Irish Patriot' and First Governor of Free State Is Dead DUBLIN, Irish Free State, March 27, UP)--The saorstat today mourned Timothy Michael Healy, Irish parliamentarian extraordinary and its first governor" general, who died In the night after a three weeks' illness.

The, end had been foreseen for several days, altho he was ill with what was thot to be. only a bad cold for some time before seriousness of his malady, a bronchial affection, was appreciated. He took a turn for' the worse yesterday morning and his son was summoned to his bedside. As a member of parliament for what is now the saorstat Healy founded a tradition of his own, the "Irish"nights" in which he would sit back with his silk hat tipped over his nose, pretending not to 1 listen to debate. Suddenly he would arise, obtain the floor and deliver a speech of vitriol coated with honeyed Irish words. He withdrew from the house of commons when the free state got its own parliament and became first saorstate governor general, serving from 1922 to 1928.

CONTRACTS FOR COAL DISCUSSED (Continued From Page 1). lengthy clash in which Chapman joined. ·"You are hostile to the investigation," Kelleher said to Baird. "I am hostile to the way you are conducting it," was Baird's reply. Chapman interposed a remark that he had been summoned to testify regarding the purchase of coal by the university from the O'Hagan company but charged that "three quarters of the questions have been about the salary of Arch McFarlane." He said his subpoena was unsigned. The witness withdrew a statement made yesterday that the Great Lakes Coal and Coke company and Walter Bledsoe company had paid a commission to the O'Hagan firm on university contracts. Chapman said he had looked over his records and fouud no commission was received. Denies Walker Order. "Mr. Walker told you to say that?" asked Kelleher, referring to Henry Walker, attorney . for the board of education. Chapman denied this was the case.

Chapman's file did not include any letterh pertaining to the award of the contract and he said he .was unable to recall any of the details.

Chapman said he understood new equipment had been installed so that this was no possible. Chapman testified that the Midwest Coal company at Albia has paid the O'Hagan firm commissions on coal sold directly to the university. Asked why this was done, he said, "I suppose we stayed out of the bidding." Similar Agreements. This practice Is followed only between the midwest and O'Hagan companies, he said, but added that the McFarlane firm has similar agreements with other companies on some .contracts. ·· Chapman told Senator Doran that he believed no university or board of education officials new of this arrangement. Several companies, if asked by the university for bids, Chapman testified, would refer the request to the O'Hagan firm because "we are their legitimate jobbers." The O'Hagan company's bank records were examined and showed several checks drawn to the Kc- Farlane firm.
