Miss Louise Sommer, speaking, she said, for 60 percent of the owners, said if the assessment went through hundreds of smaller owners woulo be ruined, because this was the third time the same area had been assessed for the same improvement George Hoochever, representing the Greater Brooklyn Property Owners Association, also appeared in oppo sition. Deferred Over Protest Joseph V. McKee, presiding over the meeting .granted the request to defer the matter until fall, against the opposition of Miss Sommer, who Insisted It was an emergency case which should be disposed ot by the Board without delay. She said the owners she repre sented had first been assessed for the Foster Ave. drainage sewer, then for Flatbush Ave. drainage sewer and now they were asked to pay another big bill for something tor which they had paid twice before-According to Chief City Engineer Herman H. Smith, the Flatbush system of relief sewers, to which the present projected Improvement Is related, was designed to afford relief from repeated flooding of thousands of acres in the Flatbush section and that the petitions' presented relate to sewers in Rogers Ave, E. 37th St, E. 21st St. and several adjoining streets comprising part of the system. He sa d construction of these sewers was authorized under four separate resolutions. He went on to explain that these improvements had been made the subject of a single assessment of about $1,513,000 or about 64 percent of the estimated cost of the work, distributed over the property within the tributary drainaRe districts covering 810 acres The assessments were placed on rates ranging from one cent to eight cents a square foot assessed. G. O. P. Club Protests The members of the Flatbush Republican Club, meeting last night at their headquarters, 2431 Church Ave, adopted a resolution calling upon the Mayor to support them In an attempt to have the entire oorough take half the ourden of the Flatbush sewer assessment.

I Rappaport It the club should be successful In its attempt to have the borough share the expense of the project, it would mean an ex pense of $1,500,000 for the com munity. Mayor Walker announced that the city approved removal ot the 6th Ave elevated railroad In Manhattan, and Instructed the secretary of the board to notify the Transit Commission that proceedings had been initiated for acquisition by the city of this property owned by the Interboro.

Katie Bureau, ' Celondo Building, Washington,, June 7 Despite the requests and petitions ot Brooklyn citizens and New York State offi cials, the Navy Department has refused to give the name of Brook lyn to cruiser 32, plans for which are now being completed preparatory to construction at Brooklyn Navy Yard. New York State has many vessels named after its cities, Secretary of the Navy Adams explained. He said the name urged by citizens of Brooklyn was denied because other States are less well represented. As a result, cruiser 32 will be known as the New Orleans. Secretary Adams also announced three other names for warships. Light cruiser 33, building at Qulncy, Mass., by the Bethlehem Shipbuild ing Corporation, will be named for Portland. Light cruiser 34, to oe 'built at the Puget Sound Navy Yard, will be called Astoria. Light cruiser 36, to be built at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, will be called the Minneapolis.
