Ml 13 Veteran Pier Off icial Guest On Eve of Trip Friends Honor Crooks, Off Today for First Sight of Brazil Coast By O. R. PILAT This might be labeled waterfront social news. Charles Crooks with his wife and son are sailing today on the Munson liner Southern Cross for bis first extended vacation in more than a quarter of a century and for his first glimpse of Brazil, whose coffee, rubber and other products he has handled for 26 years as pier superintendent of the Lloyd Brasillero Steamship Company in South Brooklyn. The veteran pier superintendent, ' who lives at 6673 Sedgwick Place, has a legion of friends. Last night a number of them, on one pretext or another, and with the co-operation of Mrs. Crooks, induced him to come to the Bay Ridge house of the Crescent Athletic Club. Once there, they kidnaped him, practically by force, and proceeded to hold a stag dinner In his honor in - a special dining room upstairs. Tugboat Moguls There It was an unusual gathering. The Moran brothers and , Carroll brothers, who do more than their respective shares of the harbor tow-boat business, were there. Morris Shea, who has raised the waterfront Junk business to the dignity of a profession, was on hand. John Green, who has a stevedoring company, and W. A. Brodie and William T. Mitchell, who are trucking men, sat near each other. In on? corner was a group of fire and police officials centerin'; about George Busby, who caught the Diamond brothers and was one of Brooklyn's best-known detectives two decades ago. He is now captain of police at Bush Terminal. Battalion Chiefs Slowey and Foley were sitting opposite Captain of Detectives John Ryan and Lieut. Edward Dwyer. Near this group were tugboat captains. James Cummings and Mat Nelson, talking to George Tilt, the coffee man, and Capt. J. Johnson, Who works for General Motors. Guest of Government Commissioner of Public Works William Heffernan chatted with Renato De Azevedo, Brazilian steamship man, who aided In securing the invitation from the Brazilian Government whereby Mr. Crooks will 1 a the official guest of that country, the veteran pier superintendent was one of the reception committee for President Prestes on the latter's recent visit to this country, -a he g-es to Brazil with the hl"nest personal standing. From a casual glance it seemed as if all the big steamship men along the Brooklyn waterfront were , mi n,. T 111., I pieoeiib. aucib wcio xum Ajiuy, ui Norton & Lilly, and his pier super intendent, Captain Jarvls: Captain McKegg of the Furness Withy Line; George Watson of the American Hawaiian Line, and any number of others. From Bush Terminal, whose piers 8 and 7 the Lloyd Brasilero Line has used In the past 26 years, there were Col. P. H. Gerhardt, who acted as toastmaster; J. A. Lehman (Gus to his friends), assistant general superintendent; W. H. Cochrane, T. C. costello, G. M. Smith and more besides. " Back In Two Months Even before such a gathering of friends, Charles Crooks was not at ease. After speeches by William Edgar, who emphasized that Crooks' good morning greeting was the same when Edgar was a mule driver on the pier as now, when he is general superintendent of Bush Terminal; and by Eugene Carroll, the towboat man; Crooks Just had to say something. His speech, consisting of about three sentences, had about a dozen "thank you's" in It. There were tears in his eyes and a catch in his voice, but you would think Daniel Webster had Just finished an oration from the noise when he sat down. ; After more speeches, in which the veteran pier superintendent was lauded for his good fellowship and honesty, presentation was made by Colonel Gerhardt of a traveling bag for Mr, Crooks, a- clock for Mrs. Crooks, and a pair of binoculars for theia. son. ' After his two months trip to Brazil, Crooks expects to be right back on the Job at pier 7, Bush Terminal, foot of 40th St. LEGION FLANS CARNIVAL A benefit carnival for the welfare fund of the Edward A.

German Ocean Fliers Reach Croydon Airport Croydon Airdrome, England, July 25 W Wolf Hirth and Oscar Weller, the German aviators who started from Berlin yesterday In a small monoplane on an attempted flight to the United States by way of the Orkneys, arrived here this noon from Calais. "Dancing Partner," which he Is trying out here for Broadway, said he'd spend today "cracking the whip." Between times, maybe, he'd have a, bite of cake and maybe even a slice' of lemon meringue pie. Both are forbidden by his doctor, except on great occasions. He said he would produce four more plays this season: "Tonight or Never," by Baroness LIU Hatvany, for Helen Gahagan; a play by Patrick Kearney for Beth Merrill; "The Berg," by Ernest Raymond, with C. Aubrey Smith as a principal, and "Laughing Boy." a dramatization of Oliver La Farge's Pulitzer prize novel. OslJ architects, on the other hand, have frankly abandoned the Gothic style in new churches for the most "modern" applications of reinforced concrete. Comment among French architect! is rather critical of the American project. "Not Gothie With Steel" "The Americans are building a Gothic church with a steel frame. which is not Gothic," they say. With their tight French logic they reason that if the early church architects had had steel and con crete to work with they would never rave Duiit Gothic churches at an. The Gothic style, they argue, was merely a means to get height and light with the only building ma terial they had at hand. A modern church architect still wants height and light, but with new materials he should produce It in a new wav In harmonv with the age or steel and cement. American Gothic, exterior details of Gothic decoration laid on over a steel frame, is no more Gothic ar chitecture than a Gothic cathedral painted on canvas at the Opera, or at Hollywood, to the French point of view. Progressive vs. Constructive , The conservative Church of Rome Is accepting ultra-modern edifices which may seem to Americans as strangely unchurchly. The progress sive Protestant American Church is sticking to the style that the Roman (hurch created and has abandoned, At iizaoetnsvllle is a new con crete church in which slim, rein forced columns hold up the roof wnue tne walls, lacy, concrete arabesques filled in with stained glass, hang from the eaves Instead of sud- porting them. The result Is that a whole wall is a stained glass window. "A result," explains the French architect, "which the architects of the true Gothic period tried to get, but could not because they had only stone. "We are trying to do what they would have done had they had our facilities," they say. Quantity Production At Villemomble, another suburb of Paris, the tall, new bell tower is crowned with massive sculptured figures of the saints, carved in the concrete before it dried. In the new church of St. Christophe hi Paris the architect applied "methods of fabrication en serle (quantity production), comparable to those employed in the automobile Indus try." The ultra-modern trend In new European churches is pushed to its extreme in a building used at present to house an art exhibition at the Antwerp International Exposition. This structure, which is permanent and is to be used as a church from the time the exposition ends, is from the exterior irresistibly reminiscent of a typical Brooklyn armory," though inside it Is Byzan tine in character. The new American Church in Paris, though it has a steel frame and includes much concrete, will show no trace of either when finished. It will be English Gothic. French church Celery Is Very Cheap; Best Offered at 20 Cents a Bunch Celery is very cheap just now with the wholesale market described "demoralized," which means that more celery has come In than can be absorbed by the retailers at a reasonable profit. The very highest grade of celery hearts, dwarf, fresh, carefully selected stock may be hau at 20 cents a bunch. Stalks of celery were found on Myrtle Ave. today from five cents stalk for undesirable stock to a very fresh looking grade for 10 cents a stalk or three for 25 cents. This was of good color, with fresh green tops. Housewives who try to check up on their vegetable prices by comparing retail and wholesale prices find tr 'tnselves utterly at sea with Magly Is Indorsed For Kiwanis Post The Jamaica Kiwanis Club in' dorsed M. Paul Magly, district tniS' eee of the organization, at its meeting yesterday in the Central Queens Branch Y. M. C. A., Jamaica, for the office of lieutenant governor of Kiwanis Clubs of the State of New York. The election Is to take place at the State convention In September, at Jamestown, N. Y. Besides Magly, Clarence Kempner, president, and Edward Warnke, secretary of the Jamaica group, were aamed to act as delegates to the conference up-State. Waitress Is Slashed By Man in Restaurant Mrs. Lena Perlllo, 35, 383 Hewes St., Brooklyn, a waitress In the Italian Gardens, 26 2d Ave., Manhattan, was attended at St Mark's Hospital last night for razor cuts inflicted by a customer of the restaurant whose attentions she rebuffed. After slashing Mrs. Perlllo the man fled. Her assailant, known at the restaurant only as "Tony," Is being sought by detectives. Huston's Post Slated for Fess As Fight Eiids G. O. P. Chairman In forms .President He Will Resign Aug. 7 Washington, July 25 0W The stormy service of Claudius Huston as chairman of the Republican Na tional Committee Is at an end. Mr. Huston brought a sudden close to the controversy over his leader ship late last night when he told President Hoover that he would call the Executive Committee of the Na tional Committee together on Aug. 7 and submit his resignation. The President approved. Senator Fess of Ohio is the choice of the Republican high command to succeed Huston and his election by the Executive Committee next month Is confidently predicted. Robert Lucas, of Kentucky, who became Commissioner of Internal Revenue a few months ago, is slated to take over the active campaign work for the approaching Congressional elections as executive assistant to Fess. Huston Sees President The new organization has the approval of President Hoover and It Is his intention that it should get to work early next month. Huston's announcement of retirement came suddenly last night after a hectic round of conferences. Coming to the capital late In the evening, Huston went Into conference with James Francis Burke, counsel of the National Committee. The White House visit was arranged immediately. Burke made the following announcement on behalf of Huston at the conclusion of the conference: "I have just had a satisfactory conference with the President and we are In entire accord on our program. The President has approved my decision to call a meeting of the Executive Committee of the Na tional Committee on Aug. 7 at which time I intend to submit my resignation as chairman of the Republican National Committee." Met Huston In New York The party row over Huston had quieted when word was passed around that Huston intended to re sign after Congress adjourned. But when Congress adjourned and no word was forthcoming from Huston the Republican chieftains got busy They decided upon a showdown. They met with Huston who said he would announce his plans after the special session ef the Senate ad' joumed. The special session ended on Monday and Huston was both silent and missing. Hurried confer ences ensued. Mr. Burke and Joseph R. Nutt, of Cleveland, the committee treasurer, called Wednesday at the White House. They hastened to New York that night and saw Huston. Late yesterday Huston came back to the city. Balrd to See Hoover Camden, N. J., July 25 There was a report here last night that United States Senator David Balrd Jr. may be offered the chairman ship of the Republican National Committee following receipt of a telephone call from Washington, D. C, from the Senator, during which he said that he and his bride of a few weeks have been Invited to pass the weekend with President Hoover at the Rapidan Camp. Senator Balrd's work in the candidacy of Ambassador Dwight W. Morrow is thought to have great influence with the President. celery, because celery comes into the wholesale market in the "rough" and Is prepaid i for retail trade by experts. The best celery coming Into the market today Is from California and other far western points, while New York State celery has not yet reached Its prime. To show the relative cheapness of celery now the wholesale prices for 1930 and 1929 were compared. This year for July 24 the highest price qunted for crated celery was $4, while in 1929 the highest price was til a crate. Very good cucumbers may had for five cents each In the best markets and as low as' four for 10 cents on Myrtle Ave., for small stock that does not run even In size or shape. Stamp Nudes Create Furor Among Collectors; Fear Ban The question of what is art and what Is nudity has come up again with a new twist. The situation has Incidentally brought up a new problem In philatelies, according to Herman Toaspem, stamp dealer. collector and prize winner. It's all because of the new Spanish stamps which. Mr. Toaspem writes from his office at 520 5th Ave., Manhattan, "have created quite a furor In stamp-collecting circles." The furor arises from the circum stance that Spain has decided to mix high art with its newest stamps There is, for example, a large one-peseta stamp which carries a reproduction of Goya's "La Maja Des-nuda," a portrait of the Duchess of Alba, done in the latter part of the Eighteenth Century and done In the nude. Letters with the artistic Spanish stamps have been arriving in the United States, and "we hear from a Boston stamp dealer that they have been mutilated in that city in passing through the mails." Then, In Paris, the International Democrats Map Drive to Gain House Control Efforts Centered on Get ting Back Lost Seats to Give 218 Majority Washington, July 25 (P) Demo cratic chieftains are laying plans for an intensive Congressional cam' palgn to begin late in August by which they hope to obtain enough seats in the House to give them control in the Seventy-second Con gress. Formulated at secret conferences between the party leaders here and in New York, the plans entail the raising of funds for drives in 72 districts in border and Northern States the Democrats hope to wiir. Hope to Gain 30 Seats The money to be raised Is to be used exclusively for the Congressional campaign. None of it is to be applied to the $500,000 deficit of the Democratic National Committee. Not only do the Democratic lead ers expect to recapture the 30 seats lost in the 1928 elections, which are normally Democratic but they hope to take over nearly all of the 54 seats that have gone Democratic In off-year Congressional elections during the past decade. With 23 additional seats to the 30 normally Democratic, they would have a bare majority of 218. Byrns to Direct Figbt Representative Byrns of Tennes- eee, chairman of the Democratic Congressional campaign committee, is to return to Washington late in August and direct the campaign un til the November elections. He has been assured by Jouett 8house, chairman of the Democratic Ex ecutive Committee, and John J. Raskob, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, of close cooperation, both in the campaign and in the raising of funds. Byrns spent several days quieny In Washington with the otner chieftains arranging the program. Before departing early today for his home in Nashville he said the party was In the "best shape for a Congressional fight that we have been in since 1910." Sees Control Certain With the present outlook, he said, the Democrats undoubtedly would control the House in the new Congress. The seats the Democrats expect to regain are one each in New Jersey, New York, Maryland, West Virginia, Indiana, .llinois. New Mexico and Pennsylvania; two each in North Carolina, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Ohio; three in Virginia, five in Kentucky and six in Missouri. In addition they hope to take other seats in those States and in Massachusetts, Utah, Kansas, Minnesota, the Dakotai and in Montana. At present the Democrats have 164 seats, with one vacancy from Rhode Island normally Democratic. With 23 additional seats they would have 218, which is a bare majority In the House of 435 members. G. Hackenberger Dies; Victim of Accident George W. Hackenberger, 61 years old, of 2109 Avenue J, was found dead Wednesday night In the bath room of his home. According to his family he apparently fell and struck his head against the wash basin, causing his death. He was head of the firm of Henry C.

Postal Union has received objections to the new art stamp. At the Postofflce in Washington, however, it was said that nothing could be done about stamp designs of other nations, and this was one encouraging note for the stamp people. MISS AUSSEM CAN'T VISIT U. S. Berlin, July 25 UP) The German Tennis Association yesterday refused Miss Cecille Aussem permission to compete in the American national tennis championships as the American event falls on the date of an international team match between Germany and Great Britain at Berlin.

Natives of the Punjab still spear their fish in small streams with a trident, not unlike that depicted on English coins. Stories of Cannon Marks Spot Of British Landing Denyse's Ferry (now Fort Hamilton), where British and Hessians landed on Aug. U2, 1776, under cover of several wrjships. Home of Denyse Family That Stood at Fort Hamilton Suffered From Shells Fired From War-ships Covering English Move in 1776 By MAURICE E. McLOVGHLIN Down at Fort Hamilton there Is a little park, and just where the road turns away from the water front there is a huge old-fashioned cannon. Just about where the cannon Is mounted stood the home of the Denyse family. There' was a ferry at the foot of the grassy slope that led down to the bay, and It was known as Denyse's Ferry. The picture gives a general idea oi now tne spot looked during the Revolutionary War. On Aug. 22, 1776, hundreds of Hessian and British soldiers were landed on the shore at this point, under cover of the guns of several British warships. Near the place where the soldiers landed were the houses of Denis Denyse, Adrian Bennet and Simon Cortelyou. The Denyse and Bennet houses suffered more or less from the shells fired from the ships, but for some reason the Cortelyou house was not made a target by the British gunners. The Common Ancestor The common .ancestor of the Denyse family was Denyse Theu-nise. Another member was Denyse Denyse "of the Narrows," as described by Nergen in "Early Settlers of Kings County." He was a large landholder and a man of so much consequence In New Utrecht that he was chosen as a delegate to the Continental Congress in Philadelphia in May, 1775. During thr War of 1812, William Denyse was a captain of the New Utrecht company of the 64th Regiment, which was encamped In front of Fort Greene, about where Hudson Ave. Is now. The family name again shone forth In 1817, when Isaac Denyse became a member of the first hook and ladder company organized In Brooklyn, Quaint Document The will of Denyse Denyse, reproduced in full In "Reminiscences of Old New Utrecht and Gowanus," by Mrs. Bleccker Bangs, Is a quaint document. It is dated Aug. 22. 1800, and the opening sentences read as follows: "In the Name of God, Amen The twenty-second day of August in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred I.

Manhattan. Questioned by police why he had turned In the alarm Van Liew had nothing more to say than "I don't know." Old Brooklyn Bold Jewel Thief s Bid for Diamonds Spoils Grand Slam Women Bridge Players Lose $1,000 in Gems to Interloper With Gun Police today were trying to solve two daring robberies yesterday by men who pretended to be meter Inspectors, one at a home at Forest Hills and one at Garden City. Though it is not believed that both thefts were the hand of a single man, In each case the thief was dark, clean-shaven and exceedingly polite, and though he relieved women of their valuables he made no search for further plunder. The first robbery interrupted an afternoon bridge game at the home of Mrs. Oeorge Sparge at 72-11 K esse 1 St.. Forest Hills. Mrs. Sparge was on the verge of making a grand slam when the stranger came in with a facility for taking diamond tricks. The doorbell rang and Mrs. Sparge opened it to find an apparent meter inspector. Instead of go ing downstairs the visitor walked boldly into the living room, to the amazement of Mrs. Arthur Hodg kiss, Mrs. Norma Metcalf and Mrs. Robert Wallace, all from Valley Stream, who were waiting for the game to continue. "Kindly stand up and line up against the wall," said the man with faultless enunciation, showing a re volver at the same time. "Now Just throw your jewelry and your pocket-books Into that chair." When Mrs. Sparge shed a tear or two at the thought of losing her tfedding ring, the kind-hearted visitor restored it, and he also gave back a watch to Mrs. Hodgklss. He kept about $1,000 worth of Jewelry and left, however, after locking the ladles In the bathroom. The other robbery occurred in the evening at the home of Mrs. Editn Delaney of 213 Kilburn St.. Garden City. The alleged meter Inspector got only $2.60 In this cose before he was frightened away by the cries of a maid.

Cairo Reports j Waf (list Plot To Oust Fuad AH Egypt Tense a Humor of Revolution Crows in Strength London, July 25 W The London correspondent of the Dally Express says that Egypt is bordering on revolution and that the Wafdista (Nationalists) will hold a session of Parliament outside the Parliamentary Building in1 Cairo tomorrow. As a result, the correspondent adds, heavy forces of troops have been concentrated in the capital and there is grave danger of a serious clash. Such sessions have been prohibited by King; Faud since Premier Ismail Sldky Pasha recently formed a new cabinet. Followers of Nahas Pasha, former Premier, planned Monday to hold a forcible session Inside the Parliament Building but called It off because of the government's show of force. Adherents of the Wafdist party led riots for the next two days In Cairo, Port 6aid and Suez. The correspondent writes that al Egypt Is tense, with reports frequent that the Wafdtsts are planning tc' force King Faud's abdication and establish either a republio or a new dynasty. Cairo Is filled with troops and In Alexandria, where a large British warship lies in the bay, its guns trained upon the city, armed British and Egyptian police patrol the city and piers. Everywhere, he writes, the citizens are nervous, foreign business Is para- y:u ma mere is some doubt about the loyalty of the army. Wafdist propaganda has been spread widely among the troops. Census Reveals 1 Only 81,263 Are Unemployed Here Doherty Declares Ficure. Isn't High Compared to Other Big Communities The announcement that 81 265 able-bodied persons were unemployed In Brooklyn when the Federal census was taken, was received today by Leo V. Doherty, chief supervisor of the census here, and Mortimer H. Michaels, supervisor of the 29th census district, as an indication that the local unemployment situation was less serious than It had been pictured. The population of the borough Is 2,596.154. "I think," said Doherty. "that this Is a very small percentage for a large community like Brooklyn. It does not seem high when we compare It with Manhattan and other large cities." "There is certainly nothing alarm. Ing about this figure," Michaels said, "I had expected the unemployment returns for the borough would reveal a much larger number of Idle here. Considering the constant cries about unemployment and hard times and business depression. I was favorably Impressed." The figures by census districts are 28th district. 13.831: 31st district, 16.759: 32d district. 17,675; 29th and 30th districts combined, 33.000.' 1 Merchants Fined; Broke Sanitary Code Four merchants of Queens Villana paid fines yesterday In the Jamaica Magistrate's Court for violating the Sanitary Code.

SETS SWIM RECORD; Manchester. England, July 25 (m A new world's swimming record for the 200 yards, breaststroke. for women was claimed today for Cella Wolstenholme. She swam the distance last night In 2 minutes 58 seconds, beating the former record by 1V4 seconds.
