THE DAILY MAIL, HAGEKSTOWN, Mti., fRlUAY, AUGUST 13, 15*39. FIVE AUTOOWNERS PAY HEAVILY Comptroller Tawes Says Motorist Biggest Taxpayers In State. Members o£ the Hagerstown Kiwanis Club yesterday were told by Comptroller of the Treasury, J. Millard Tawes, that the statement that motorists were the biggest taxpayers wasn't a fairy tale. Figures quoted by the State Comptroller bore out the fact that this was true, and during the course of his address he stated that the present Administration - -is adhering to the policy of spending gasoline tax funds for the purpose for which it was intended—the building of new roads and the repairing of the old highways. Comptroller Tawes briefly reviewed the financial condition of the State of Maryland and produced figures to show that Maryland was in a much better position than many ohter states in the Union. H© listed the major sources of State revenues and then outlined the progress being made by the Administration in reducing unnecces- sary expenses. "You are the taxpayers of the State, and are entitled to know just how your money is being spent," the Comptroller said. "It aag always been gratifying to me 10 know that there has never been my apparent decrease in the inter- 1st on the part of the citizenry »E this State to learn more and 11 ore about where their tax dollars ire going, and I for one am cer- :ainly pleased at all times to tell them." Comptroller Tawes, one of the founders of the Crisfield Rotary Club, highly complimented the Kiwanians for their interest and work in child health work. The speaker was introduced by PreTrr'-e-r L. Stouffer, chairman of the Public Affairs Committee of the local club. Guests included Thomas W. Pnngborn, memb-r of the State Board of Welfare. Harry Fridinger. member of th^ City Council, Dr. Draper, Boonsboro, and visit ing Kiwanians Alvcry Hammond, Towson, Maryland, and Hiram Hall, Jackson Heights, New York.

Potomac St. Phone 1133 Caskey's Three New Loaves NOW AT YOUR GROCERS INVESTIGATOR IS WITNESS Capt. Bakcsy Tells Of Big Sum Paid Him For Checking On Bridges. SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. IS.—A former military intelligence officer, known as "Captain X" during 1 the World War, testified here he had been paid thousands of dollars by waterfront and shipping officials fu investigate Harry Bridges and to determine whether Soviet money was supporting waterfront strikes. The witness, Capt. Charles G. Bakcsy of Santa Monica, Calif., was called by the defense at Bridges' deportation hearing. He also testi- fied Larry Doyle, mystery figure in the case, had demanded he sign a paper saying he had seen. Bridges, maritime labor leader, at a "big Communist meeting." Bakcsy said he had been discharged suddenly in 1936 as an investigator, and almost had a scuffle with Thomas G. Plant, then president of the Waterfront Employers Association, because "Plant said 1 was slow in getting evidence." The captain, who got his title as master of sailing ships, also mentioned the name of Frank F. Merriam who, he testiflted, had introduced him to a Honolulu Oil Company official, resulting in his investigator's job. Captain Bakcsy, testifying in broken English, said he was paid $16,000 for his work but that the sum should have been $25,000. He explained he received $400 a month from Plant between April and August, 1035, and later $1,000 a month, and expenses, from Hugh Gallagher, an official of the Matson Navigation Company. The witness added Plant wanted "to get the low-down on Bridges' activities" and wanted him to bring the Australian-born CIO official to Carmel and obtain a secret recording of what Bridges said. "The most important thing was to find out if money was coming from Soviet Russia; second came Bridges," Bakcsy related. Bridges has denied he is a Communist, but the Government is attempting to deport him on grounds that he is, and that the party advocates violent overthrow of the Government.
