BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE, NEW YORK, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15, 1933 iarriman naiiiv Debits 'Fated' Fourteen Examined Federal Probe-Case Not Due to Holiday Fo-.:rtiyn witnesses examined by A"f.ftant United States Attorney Pchwart? today in Manhattan, following the arrest last night cf Joseph V. Harriman, chairman of the board of the Harriman Nations: Bank and Trust Company, t-sf.r;ed that fictitious debits had bi nmdr. without their knowledge, n-ains; their accounts. Mr. has been charged with misuse of depositors' funds. nvd hi.s arrest followed an investigation by Federal authorities in Man-hatlan which had no connection with the bank holiday and the clos-iiu of the bank last Monday. It was expected that 200 witnesses will be examined before the prelimi-r.arv inquiry is completed. Harriman is at liberty on $25,000 bail furnished by a surety company following his bedside arraignment at 7 o'clock last night before U. S. Commissioner O'Neill In his seventh floor apartment at 2 E 70th St.. Manhattan. The banker is suffering from coronary thrombosis, a serious heart affliction, and physicians agreed that It would be dangerous to move him. Physicians at Bedside The first deputy marshal who was gent to the Harriman home early yesterday afternoon with a warrant for his arrest reported that service miqht prove fatal. Later, U. S. Marshal Raymond J. Mulligan nerved it himself, with two physicians in attendance. When Commissioner O'Neill was informed of the illness of Harriman he went to his residence to complete the formality of an arraignment. In Mr. Harriman Is physically, able he will be given a hearing March 28 in Manhattan Federal Building. In the meantime Schwartz will present evidence in the case to the grand jury. Mr. Medalie declared that bank examiners have discovered the misuse of $1,393,000 of the bank's funds. The affidavit on which the arrest nrder was issued specifies false entries to a total of $320,145. Sums totaling this amount are said to have been charged to the accounts -of the National Exhibition Company, owners of the New York Giants; Alfred Holman, Inc., and the special account of Frederick T. . Mjieller. ' Denies AH Charge On behalf of Harriman, his attorney, John R. Davis, Issued the following statement after the arraignment: "The fact that charges had been made or a warrant or a summons issued against him came as a complete surprise to Mr. Harriman. These charges, which were referred to in the afternoon papers, were vigorously denied by Mr. Harriman from his sick bed. Mr. Harriman has been gravely ill and confined to his bed for a number of months. Mr. Harriman asked that the public and particularly the depositors and stockholders of the Harriman bank, before forming an opinion as to these charges, await his reply to them, which he plans to make at the earliest possible moment." 10 Point Gains In the Market Continued from Page 1 priced issue in this group, moved up 4'i points. Inventory stocks, that is stocks of companies believed to have sub-(tantial accumulations of raw materials, were in urgent demand and joined the advance with sharp gains. Leading stocks, and especially those known or believed to have been harboring an extensive short interest, advanced rapidly. This group was led by American Telephone which, ex-dividend during the past week, rose more than 6 points. Consolidated Gas rose more than 3 points. American Can Jumped 5"i points. Of equal interest with stocks was the sharp rise In bond prices. U. S. Government issues moved up rap-Idly and in the general list advances up to 5 points were plentiful. Nearly all groups were Included In the rise. While trading was not fspenally active, the gains were excellently maintained. Profes- !onal quarters were more inclined to keep their eyes on bonds than on stocks, for the reason that, it was believed, any general tenden- fles toward inflation would reflect I' "selves earliest and most di- i"c ly in declining bond prices. Dollar Week Abroad In the foreign exchange markets the dollar turned weak and did not Improve materially up to 2:30 o'clock. Sterling opened more than 2 cents higher and French francs Jumped 3.93'i cents to slightly bet- ter than 3.95 cents. Dutch guilders and Swiss francs also moved up. Later, sterling receded about one cent from its top on English selling, but the others remained nearer their tops. The prevailing prices were practically t lie levels that ruled just before the holiday was nrnrla lined on March 4.

Aj t X' - I I W f Commission In recognition of his heroic feat, it aroused the protest of the Vaccination Research Society. They wrote a letter to Mayor Walker in which they quoted Frank Seppalla, noted dog team racer, as saying the whole story of Balto's dash to Nome with diphtheria anti-toxin "was a fake." No attention was paid to the protest and the statue still stands. Mrs. Roosevelt Scorns Guard Continued from Paga 1 was all in the White House and very exciting. "Finally Friday night things seemed to have quieted down pretty much, and we all went to bed fairly early. "At 12:30 a.m., however, I was awakened by the telephone in my room and told about the Los Angeles earthquake. "I went in and wakened my husband and told him about it. He told me to wake up Mr. Howe and Mr. Early, two of .his secretaries, and to get in touch with Los Angeles at once. " 'But they say the wires are all down," I told him. " 'Well get in touch with Los Angeles anyway,' he said." On her first visit back since her husband's inauguration, Mrs. Roosevelt attended the opening exercises at the school shortly before 9 a.m., accompanied by her little granddaughter, Anna Eleanor Dall, Just as site used to do when she was teaching there. Judge Taylor Asks Bars for Ten' in New Courthouse Declaring that he would refuse to accept the responsibility of sitting In the new Brooklyn central court house until adequate grills are in stalled In . the prisoners' quarters County Judge Taylor today ex pressed surprise at the denlul by Borough President, Hesterberg that suggestions had been submitted by State Corrections Commissioner Kennedy for making alterations in the building. "Mr. Kennedy not only recommended that this work be done," said Judge Taylor, "but conferred in the Borough President's office about it last December and was told that it would be done immediately." The jurist exhibited a letter from Commissioner Kennedy on Dec. 29, In which the latter stated he had conferred with Philip J. Farley, borough engineer, at Hesterberg 's suggestion, and was given to understand that the borough authorities would go ahead with the alterations. Hesterberg, meanwhile, had stated he would ask the Board of Estimate to appropriate $5,000 for the needed grill work as soon as plans are approved by the Corrections Department. Police officials, court attendants and others have indicated a belief that the prisoners' quarters, on the seventh flour, present a menace of breaks and possible loss of life as laid out. Judge Taylor said 1t would be as "absurd" to open the new courthouse in its current condition as it would be to open a prison before bars and locks had been put In Fog Causes Day 'Midnight': rreezmg Weather lomorrow "Midnight" descended on the ' Building.

Mississippi to the Cumberland la5t night and left behind it 36 known dead, more than 200 injured and property damage estimated above $1,000,000. The twister struck early in the night after preliminary blows at the Arkansas and Missouri side of tlie Mississippi and mowed a path of destruction from the valley to the mountains through Nashville, Harrogate, Jelllco and Kingsport, Tenn., touching many small villages on the way. , Nashville, a city of more than 150.000 and the Tennessee capital, felt the full force or the storm as the driving winds dipped over a fringe of hills and cut across the eastern portion of the community, bowling over houses, damaging buildings, uprooting trees and Uttering the streets with . debris. At least eight were killed here. Lights Snapped Out Lights over the city were snapped out as power lines fell. Ambulances drove through uncertain streets to take some 100 or more injured to hospitals where physicians had to work for a lime with improvised Illumination. Scores of buildings in East Nash ville were leveled and the National Guard was called out to preserve order. Rescue workers with flashlights picked their way over trees and through debris in the hunt for the dead and iniured. Two Negro churches and a school were wrecked. Fires added to the confusion. First reports of storm damage came from northeast Arkansas and southeast Missouri. Then the storm headed eastward and whipped into middle Tennessee and on across the State. The little town of Pruden in the coal mine country reported eight dead, in Kingsport, east Tennessee industrial center, six were killed, and Jellico suffered heavy damage. Yips and Yells At Stock 'Bout' Coiitlnued from Page 1 the gong that starts, perhaps, the first round of a championship fight in the ring. It is met from the floor with a "YE'Eeee - Ow - Wow-WOWW!!l" We listen. Is It the jubilant yelp of the bulls? It seems like it. And now the test Is on. They are buying and selling down there. The moving tape takes up the story, where it was dropped on March 3. Numbers and letters, numbers and letters. Let's see, now, which way do the numbers go? There's "T 101." American Telephone stock up, by three points or more. Good. But well, that was expected. Now it is 100s. Now 101 again and again 100 and a fraction. Which is the ultimate way? Most 'Up a Bit' After a long delay, there at last Is Steel. It's 28 a fraction, and that's a substantial rise. Most of them are up a bit, says the conservative Mr. Klem. ' But look what's that? Telephone Is moving, and up. It's lOl'.i, 102, 102'i. ; and now 103. From the throats of the people on the floor comes that jubilant "Yeeeee Ow WOWWW!!!" And then they return, quickly, to the Industrious business in hand. This is not the Jubilation of the boom days of years ago not yet. Those who yelp, briefly, today, are sadder and less optimistic bulls than once they were. They mill about, In a sort of series of endless circles, both the nervous gentlemen down there on the floor and the prices they set. Now and then a voice rises, like an unmeaning prayer or a command to the gallery. "Seven and " Or "Hey!" And trails off into the muss of humming sound. It is 10:30, and now we hear "Bool" and another. Is this a prelude to an attack by the Bears? We hope not. A' new world has taken the place of the old one, and perhaps an entirely different road will have to be traversed toward economic comfort than the one the bullish stock brokers know. But their way, too. must be better than the destructive bears'. Booed Clouds In a moment it becomes evident that the playful brokers have only been booing an overclouded sky outdoors, which left them not enough light to work by on the floor. When a flood of electric light is switched on, we hear again the "Yip-Yip-Yeee-OW!" Well the stocks are going up, going up. Maybe It means that a somewhat Inflated dollar is finding that It will buy less of Steel and less of T. than on March 3. Maybe It's true, as one of the boys 'careful to reveal no naive enthusiasm) suggests, people "don't know what to do with their money." But maybe who can tell? here Is the first omen of the coming of better days. pand, the darkness lifted.' The clearing, he added, will be followed by fair and somewhat colder this afternoon and tonight, with the temperature dropping below freezing tomorrow morning. Mr. Hoover Walks A ndT hings Happen Herbert Hoover likes horses, small boys and grocery stores. He came into contact with all three on his early morning walk up Lexington Ave. today. The horse was attached to a delivery wagon and Mr. Hoover paused, smiling, when Lawrence Richey. his secretary, patted the animal's nose. The boys were enroute to school and almost crashed head-on into Mr. Hoover. "Look, that's Mr. Hoover," cried one. "And he spoke to us," cried another, as the Hoover party passed. ' A van. was leaving the day's supply of foodstuffs at a grocery store and Mr. Hoover gazed with interest at potatoes and other foods. With his son, Allan, Mr. Hoover had breakfast in the E. 76th St., Manhattan, home of Lewis L. Strauss,- banker, according to the Associated Press. Nassau -Suffolk Banks Opened Continued from Page 1 banks reopened in this district and 152 more State banks and trust companies that resumed business on authorization of the State Banking Department. Because of the great number of country and suburban banks that had to be certified for reopening, the Federal Reserve Bank did not make public its list of certified banks until 10:30 a.mi Banking Superintendent Broderick withheld his list until the Federal Reserve list was announced. - By telegram at S a.m., however, he notified the State banks he had authorized to reopen and all began business at 9 a.m. Deposits exceeding withdrawals "ten times over" were reported at noon by C. H. Hattjeld, cashier of the People's National Bank of Pat-chogue, the largest trading center of Suffolk County. The Nassau County Trust Company at Mineola reported "unusually heavy deposits," as did the First National Bank of Mineola This last named bank reported a new account started with a $5,000 deposit. Katlo Increases As the day advanced the ratio of deposits to withdrawals Increased. The South Shore Trust Company, Rockville Centre, reported a 50-to-l ratio; the Citizens National Bank of Freeport, 30 to 1, and the Lynbrook National Bank, 8 to 1. Heavy deposits also were reported by the Baldwin National Bank and the First National Bank of Bellmore. A total of 152 State banks and trust companies and 10 private banks reopened under authorization from the State Banking Department. Although the list was withheld pending issue of the Federal Reserve Bank's list, the State institutions were notified by telegram at 5 a.m. and opened promptly at 9 a.m. Under Broderick's supervision are 140 mutual savings banks and 399 savings and loan associa tions. Eighty-one of the savings banks and 85 savings and loan as sociations in New York City were reopened on the first two days of this week. This left 59 savings banks and 214 savings and loan as sociations for certification. Coincident with the reopening of the banks in Nassau and Suffolk Counties today, the savings and loan associations were licensed. In Nassau County, at the end of last year, there were 15 associations with resources of $4,612,963. In Suffolk there were three associations with reported resources of $769,619. There are 26 savings and loan associations in Kings County with resources of $27,527,217 and 11 In Queens with $6,021,491. The rstrtion under which the savings and loan associations are reopening provides that any withdrawal b a shareholder shall not exceed his proportional share of currency available for the payment of all free shares of the association. It stipulates, however, that a shareholder may withdraw up to $10 but in no case is the payment to exceed 50 percent of the withdrawal value of his shares. With the opening of local banks throughout the country today, banks clearings were resumed on a nation wide basis for the first time since the national bank holiday began on March 6. Deposits in the New York area and throughout the country yesterday continued to exceed withdrawals, both In commercial and savings institutions. Gold and gold certificates continued to flow into the banks. The New York Federal Reserve Bank reported receipts of gold and gold certificates yesterday totaling $28,000,000, bringing the total of such receipts to $174,000,000 since March 7. Net receipts of currency excess of Intake over outgo at the central banks yesterday were $75,000,000 as against $20,000,000 on Monday. Member and non-member Federal Reserve banks which opened promptly In the principal cities today as a result of licensing on Monday and Tuesday were New York, 216; Philadelphia, 175; Boston, 115; Chicago, 283; Cleveland. 135; Richmond, 88; Atlanta, 75; St. Louis, 52; Kansas City, 171; San Francisco, 129, and Dallas, 86. The Western Union Telegraph Company announced that the resumption of banking had made It possible for the company to lift the $100 limit it placed on domestic telegraph orders on March 4. It also announced resumption to all countries of foreign money order service. Some 50.000 telegrams, most of them relating to the pending economy bill, have loaded the company's wires from all parts of the country to Washington, an official stuted. Never within the memory of the oldest telegrapher, it was ' said, has there been such a tele . graphic expression of a nation's opinion as to legislation before I Congress. 1 Roosevelt Set For Farm Aid His Work Plan Also Will Give Jobs to 200,000 Seeks Speedy Aeliou! Eaflc Rurefta, CUrada Building. Washington. March 15 Next to be submitted to Congress by President Roosevelt will be his plans for emergency relief of the unemployed and of the hard-pressed farmers. The President, in messages to Congress, will ask for adoption of his measures tomorrow or as soon as the economy bill is out of the way. The unemployment program cans for recruiting 200.000 jobless men to work on reforestation of Federal lands. They are to receive maintenance and a dollar a day out of a $500,000,000 fund. Out of that fund, also, new grants are to be made to States for distress relief. To the same end, loans by the Reconstruction Finance Corporation to State agencies are to be liberalized so as to get public construction projects moving more rapidly. Though the unemployment pro gram remained tobe completed, in j Senate quarters it was understood a general plan had been outlined in volving a total of $2,500,000,000. This Is still to be submitted to the President. In addition to his $500,000,000 reforestation program, the tentative plan by Miss Perkins, Secretary of Labor, Includes: $1,000,000,000 for loans through the Reconstruction Corporation for public construction which is deemed "needful and in the public interest." $500,000,000 for . Federal public works. $500,000,000 for relief advances to the States. Plan Excesi Tax For agriculture, the program calls for Federal leasing of marginal farm lands and the Imposition of an excess tax to raise the necessary funds for this purpose. The so-called domestic allotment plan of farm relief has been abandoned. President Roosevelt has tied his unemployment program definitely to the economy bill, it was learned, and this, action is expected to expedite passage of the latter. The amount which will be available in the Federal Treasury for unemployment relief is to bear a definite relation to the amount of savings in the cost of operating the Government effected by the enactment of the economy bill. Involved in the plan are a more liberal definition of "self-liquidating" projects and a cut in the interest rate on loans for these projects. N. Y. Program Held Up Among the New York projects held up by the high interest rates sought are the construction of the proposed vehicular tunnel from 38th St., Manhattan, to Weehaw-ken, N. J., and the proposed new upper Hudson bridge. The theory back of the agricul tural plan is that land leased by the Federal Government will be removed from production with the result thst the crop will be smaller and the price of farm produce con sequently higher. With the 1933 crop planting sea son about to start, the President regards speed in the enactment of the farm relief plan as essential. The plan is in the nature of an experiment and It Is hoped to test it out during the year. Germany Restores Its OIcTWar Flag Berlin, March 15 (A) President Von Hlndenburg today decreed the removal of the black, red and gold Inset in the corner of the German war flag, thereby restoring the old imperial war Rag and reintroducing the black, white and red cockade on military caps.
