It is also expected that the Mayor will name a new, salaried chairman of the Housing Authority shortly after he gets back so that the housing program may be lined up and ready to roll into action when Edmond Borgia Butler quits. Next will come a study to regrade Civil Service personnel and the proposed consolidation of the Fire, Police and Correction Departments and Public Works with Sanitation toward possible budgetary economies.

AFTER HOSPITALS COMMISSIONER BERNECKER com-pleted his periodic medical examination of Mayor O'Dwyer the other day, Bill Donoghue, the Mayor's executive secretary, asked the Commissioner to give him the once-over. Donoghue took one look at the wavering needle on the blood pressure gauge and immediately took off on a week's vacation. JUT ANY A CITY HALL WIT had a field day when Councilman Connolly introduced a resolution to change the name of the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel to the "Hercules Mulligan Tunnel" in honor of a Revolutionary War patriot and pioneer politician. One politico pointed to the fight between Democratic Leader Pat McCarren and Tammany Boss Charlie Murphy, when the cry among the Brooklynites was "the Tammany Tiger shall not cross the bridge." Recalling that Hercules Mulligan was a charter member of the Order of Tammany, this City Hall punster remarked: "They couldn't get the Tammany Tiger across the bridge so now they're going to try and sneak him into . Brooklyn under water via a tunnel." pITY HALL INSIDERS SAY that Mayor O'Dwyer probably w will stay on the sidelines re abolishing the proportional representation system of electing City Councilmen. Private Iv, O'Dwyer is believed to favor the ditching of P. R., de scribed by some politicos as the "great bingo game," but doesn't wish to incur the displeasure of the Liberal and American Labor parties by an open declaration of his views. A LARGE PORTION OF GAMBLING CASES brought before the Special Sessions bench have resulted in acquittals or were otherwise discharged because of lack of evidence Chief Justice George DeLuca maintains this condition is due probably to the "policy of harassment pursued by the Police Department against the gambling element." The jurist has requested an additional court of three justices in Brooklyn, or an extra gambling part to relieve the congestion of cases.

Body of 3d Is Found East Moriches, April 21 An air md sea search for two Brooklyn men was scheduled to be resumed today after the body of a third Brooklyn man was found floating in Moriches Bay off Mastic Beach. The body of Nicholas Byrnes, 35, 145 Autumn Ave., was found yester day after a power boat, operated by Ova Becken of Manorvllle, had ammed an overturned rowboat. A police investigation revealed hat Byrnes and two other men had ented a rowboat here to go fish ing. The two other men were Identified is Granville Eglestrom, 38, 470 Cleveland St.. and William Buck, 19, whose address "was given only is Jerome St. While flares were dropped from a Coast Guard plane, crews of Coast 3uard boats and a Brookhaven Town police boat scoured the waters vithout success. Police believe the trio's boat, which had an outboard motor, was overturned by yesterday's rough water. Becken, who said he did not see the overturned boat until it was too late to avoid hittin git, told police it was anchored.

Priest Stabbed at Altar Winning Fight for Life New Orleans, April 21 (U.Rl Stabbed four times during a high mass yesterday, the Rev. James Courtney, S.J., was given "better than an even chance to recover today by doctors at Mercy Hospital. The condition of the 47-year-old Jesuit priest was described as "very good" following a satisfactory night. He was given plasma. Hundreds of persons offered whole blood but physicians said no transfusion appeared necessary. Police questioned Don L. Laurentz of Houston, Tex., sullen former marine, seeking an explanation for the attack. The stocky 27-year-old Laurentz, believed to have arrived in New Orleans four days ago on a merchant ship, only stared at his Questioners. He admitted he was a non-Catholic. Police Lt.

The attack occurred during the 11 a.m. services as Father Courtney completed distribution of commu nlon at the altar rail of the Church of the Immaculate Conception. After the last communicant had received communion, Laurentz leaped at the priest, striking him once in the neck, twice in the lace with a pocket knife and then, as Father Courtney turned away from him to protect the Chalice, once more in the back. The priest fell to the floor unconscious. Laurentz leaped over the altar rail, seeking to follow up the assault, but eight men, most of them ushers, beat him away.
