"Captain Applejack" Called
Best Cam pus Play Of Year


Alleges $5,267,000 Overpayment
Wright-Martin A irerait


Washington, D. C., April 2.-(By A.
P.)-Further details of charges that
the department of justice had unduly
delayed war fraud prosecutions were
heard by the senate Daugherty com-
mittee today from H. L. Scaife, for-
mer Investigator for the department,
who was called to the stand for the
third time.
Scaife, who was the only witness
to appear before the committee to-3
day, testified to some extent from re-
cords of the house committee which,
in 1922 considered impeachment
charges against Harry M. Daugherty.
Reiterating and extending a previ-'
ous allegation that the Wright- Mar-
tin Aircraft corporation had received
an "overpayment" of $5,267,000 on war
contracts and had not been prosecuted.
Scaife declared that former Attorney-
General Daugherty, Secretary Weeks,
Charles Hayden, chairman of the
Wright-Martin board and Guy Goff,
former assistant attorney-general
"should all be indicted by a grand
jury" for inaction in the matter.
Senator Wheeler, Democrat, the
committee prosecutor contended thatr
such, "volontary remarks" had no
place in the committee records but
did not press his objection when Sen-
ator Mo'ses, New Hampshire observed
that the testimony had "already gone
over the wires.".
The witness contended that machin-
ations "of what I call the invisible]
government" had been disclosed by
some of his investigations and told ofw
what he said were fruitless efforts on
his part to have the departmont of
justice investigate army air craft dis-
