Eagle Bureau, National Frees Building. Washington, Oct. 24 Bankers were urged today by Jesse H. Jones, RFC chairman, to ease the brakes on credit to the extent of making Joans they ordinarily would refuse and loans which might have to be indulged" to some extent. ' Mr. Jones complained in a speech before the American Bankers Association that although the bankers say they are eager to lend, he has "indisputable evidence" that they have "not done so as freely as they could." His speech was delivered as leaders of the association were drafting resolutions pledging active co-operation and consultation with the Administration. The resolutions are slated for approval tomorrow. Borrow More, if Needed' After advising tne banks to reexamine their capital, and to borrow from the RFC if more was needed, the chairman said: "Such a course would not only provide the banks with ample capital to meet all contingencies, but would enable them to be more lenient with their present borrowers. "I am not suggesting that they make questionable loans, but loans that will need to be indulged." The chairman agreed with past criticism by bankers that there have been too many debt moratoriums, and added: "The way to avoid more of them to for bankers and other lenders to continue to show leniency and display an attitude of friendliness toward deserving and honest debtors until conditions improve. "You may think you are doing this, but one thing that is retarding recovery Is that people want to get out of debt, and until they can be made to" cel comfor'able about their debts, deluding what they owe the bank, chey will be slow to undertake any flew obligations." May Allay Hostility The policy of co-operation will ot bar criticism of Roosevelt measures but is expected to allay the open hostility which has existed for more than a year between the White House and leading bankers. Mr. Jones, although conciliatory In tone today, again struck out at Continued on Page 23 Banking Chain Cover LI.

Mer HAUPTMANN TRIAL DELAYED TO JAN. 2 IN SURPRISE MOVE Institutions Get Ramsay Million In Settlement Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences Is $450,000 Beneficiary About $1,000,000 will be distrib uted to charitable and educational institutions, most of them in Brooklyn, in the joint settlement of the i estates of Dick S. Ramsay, former j president of the East River Sav lngs Bank, and lone May Spears, his principal heir, it was disclosed today. Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences will be the chief beneficiary, receiving about $450,000. Other charitable beneficiaries include Princeton University, Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute, Brooklyn Home for Children, Brooklyn Hospital, Brooklyn Home for Aged Colored People, Brooklyn Children's Society, Brooklyn Public Library and the Methodist Episcopal Hospital. Beneficiary Die , Mr. Ramsay died on June 27. 1931. leaving a net estate of $2,386,547. according to an appraisal by Transfer Appraiser, David F. Soden filed in Surrogate's Court today. Of this $85,000 was given to charity and the balance left In trust for Miss Spears, daughter of a woman who had befriended him as a youth In Chicago, with the direction that she dispose of it in her will. She died July 20, 1933. Not all the residue came Into her possession. Various relatives contested the validity of Mr. Ramsay's will, and these claims were compromised by the payment to them of $300,000 from the estate . Of this amount, William A. Ramsay and Robert W. Ramsay, brothers, and Mary Parker, a niece, received $75,-000 each. The remaining $75,000 went to four other nephews and nieces. Miss Spear's Estate About $1,636,738 of the Ramsay fortune was distributed by Miss Spears in her will. Her own property, as ' distinguished from the Ramsay estate, she willed to Princeton University and directed that sufficient funds in addition be taken from the estate to make the total gift $250,000. Of the balance she distributed 50 percent among 40 legatees and the remaining 50 percent to charitable organizations. Of t he portion going to charity she directed that 50 percent go to Brooklyn Institute, 20 percent to the Brooklyn Home for Children and the remaining 30 percent In equal shares to Brooklyn Polytechnic, Brooklyn Hospital, Brooklyn Home for Aged Colored People, Brooklyn Public Library. Methodist Episcopal Hospital and Brooklyn Children's Society. All of these except Brooklyn Polytechnic shared in the specific charitable bequests made by Mr. Ramsay himself.

The resolution of the legislative committee stated: "Resolved, That since the Government of the United States is now definitely committed to a policy of spending additional sums of money for the purpose of hastening recovery, "The American Legion recommends the immediate payment at face value of adjusted compensation certificates with cancellation of all interest and refund of interest previously paid as a means to that end." Two Dissenting Votes The committee, after hours of debate last night and today, adopted the resolution with only two dissenting votes. Without discussion or a dissenting vote, the convention today adopted a report of its national defense committee recommending increasing the standing army to 14.000 officers and 165,000 men. Consolidation of the Army, Navy and Marine Corps Air Services was opposed in the report. Construction of an American Navy to full treaty strength was advocated.

The Initial returns were: Lehman, 143; Moses, 102, and Hylan, 22. The Governor broke away in front despite the fact that he ran a bad second to the Republican nominee in a canvass taken at the monthly dinner meeting of the Municipal Club of Brooklyn.

American and British oil companies, chief among them the Standard Oil Company of New York and the British Asiatic Petroleum ompany, face an Intensive struggle for existence in Manchoukuo as the government there prepares to establish a State oil monopoly. Although the United States Government has made no official protest nor any diplomatic representations, it was learned the American and British Embassies for three months have been discussing the monopoly project with the Tokio Foreign Office. Conflict May Arise If Washington and London heed the latest urgings of the oil companies and thus far they have clearly shown a disposition to go to bat for their nationals on this issue a definite diplomatic conflict may develop shortly. The monopoly is part of the Japanese Navy's plans to dominate the economic development of Manchuria and control the empire's oil supplies from the standpoint of national defense.

Lindbergh Kidnap-Mur-der Case Is Put Off at Request of Prosecutor Who Feared Jurors Might Be Locked Up Over the Holidays By FRANK EMERY Staff Correspondent of The Eaglt Flemington, N. J., Oct. 24 Through a surprising and unexplained move by the prosecution, that until the last minute was demanding an early trial, Bruno Richard Hauptmann's tryst with "Jersey justice" was today adjourned until Jan. 2. The 10 weeks delay, during which intermission the stolid ex-carpenter will sojourn in the pleasant surroundings of the Hunterdon County jail here, was eageny moved by Attorney General David T. Wilentz, New Jersey's short and strident prosecutor. Mr. Wilentz' stated reason for urging the long intermission was a deep concern for the convenience of the prospective Sourland Mountain jurors during the Christmas and New Year's holidays. Concerned Over Jury The New Jersey prosecutor feared, he ssid, to start the triaJ In December because the Jurors might be "locked up" during-, the Winter holidays. "V This event, he explained to the court, would "dissatisfy the court, jurors and witnesses, and the State cannot consent." So Mr. Wilentz made the startling motion to bring Hauptmann to trial on Jan. 2, after the defense had modestly suggested a delay only until Dee, 11. The prosecution's original suggestion to the 71-year-old presiding Jurist, Supreme Court Justice Thomas W. Trenchard, was that the trial be called on Nov. 12, but Mr. Wilentz did not press for the early date. Then James M. Fawcett, of Brooklyn, defense attorney, politely stated that he would be unable to present his client's case before the December date. Arguments Cut Short The crowded, mountain country courtroom anticipated a long battle of legal arguments. But Mr. Wilentz, arising smoothly, cut it all short. He bowed and said: "Because of the holidays, and because the State wishes to accord every opportunity to the defense, the suggestion of the prosectntion is that the nearest date on. which both sides can agree is Wdnesday, Jan. 2." The attorneys for the two sidca had been in conference with Justice Trenchard for half an hour before the arraignment of the prisoner on the nation's most celebrated first degree murder indictment. The proceedings, therefore, gave every appearance of being arranged before the courtroom show was staged. Then 10-minute session of the court bred no argument or oratory. No Comment on Delay Both sides declined to comment on the delay that will give each 10 weeks for preparing the pro and the con, and which incidentally was accompanied by a compromise that Continued on Page 2 Woman Waves Flag, Drives Off Diggers Philadelphia, Oct. 24 UP) An American flag, waved in Barbara Frietchie fashion by Mrs. Nana Scott, 66, humbled a group of ditch diggers and drove them away.
