Awaiting Her Last Voyage - Junk Yard Bound
Plays Bigger Role
In Capitol Circles
WASHINGTON, July 19. -(UP) -
The gadfly role Senator Pat Harrison
enjoyed so long is his no more. As
the play goes on, he fils a more im-
portant role in the Roosevelt cast.
The tall, slightly stooped Mississip-
pian, who roamed the senate floor in
the long lean years of the Democratic
party as a free lance critic and poker
of sardonic fun at Republicans, sits
now in the inner circle of administra-
Generally, he is classified as third

Robinson of Arkansas, Byrns of
South Carolina, Harrison of Missis-
sippi - believed to have the ready
car of the White House.
Chairman of the powerful finance
committee - which helps decide
where the money is coming from -
he now also is a majority wheel-
Harrison is thin faced, long of
nose and his hair is thinning. He is
53. First coming to Washington in
1910 as a house member, he has been
here ever since. No senator knows
more of the traditions of that body.
Harrison is a favorite of the Dem-
ocratic national committee, having
performed high service for it.
Perhaps no deathless Harrison mot
will remain after him. His quips
come so rapidly and spontaneously
few remember the words, although
they recall the effect.
His chief outdoor hobby is golf, but
he remains a devotee of the retort
Is Rejected By
P W A Officials
WASHINGTON, July 19. - (')-
The plan to bridge the Straits of
Mackinac has been frowned upon by
the public works administration.
Nevertheless, its proponents in
Washington rose today to a new at-
Charles E. Fowler, bridge designer,
who has been at work in Washington
for several months on his proposal to
link the upper and lower, Michigan
peninsulas, was notified today the
bridge again had been turned down
as a PWA project.
Col. Horatio B. Hackett, assistant
public works administrator, told
Fowler the traffic possibilities did
not warrant expenditure of approxi-
mately $35,000,000, the estimated cost
of such a span.
Fowler contends that it would be
impracticable to build a bridge direct-
ly across the straits because of the
water depth and because of ice condi-
tions. He believes the best. plan is
to span the water by a circuitous
route covering the various islands.
Fowler contended the argument
that traffic would not justify the ex-
penditure was without foundation
and said that if the bridge were built
a $500,000,000 tourist business could
be expected from 22 states.
Fowler said the administration was

Wrath of The Irish
Inflicted On Ritchie
BALTIMORE, July 19. -(P) -The
wrath of the Irish swirled around the'
head of former Gov. Albert C. Ritchie
today after his most recent assault on
the New Deal.
The banquet meeting of the An-
cient Order of Hibernians, in con-
vention here, became an uproar last
night as Ritchie asserted in an ad-
dress the New Deal "has not worked."
The talk was regarded as his notice
Ritchie would be amenable to the
leadership of conservative Democrats.
Rep. Martin L. Sweeney (Dem.),
Ohio, former national president of
the Hibernians; George Riley, Cali-
fornia state president, and George W.
Harkins, also of California, lined up
Sweeney said he resented "the ex-
governor of Maryland's cheap politi-
cal tactics in waging an attack on
the administration and taking ad-
vantage of the occasion when several
hundred men and women of Irish
birth and descent were assembled to
listen to what they expected to be an
historical and scholarly address."
One of the minor signs of economic
recovery is the increase of imports
of porcelain and pottery by the United

in public works allotments, and that
the bridge was a more worthy project.

Favor Is Seen For
Ineome Tax Revisal
WASHINGTON, July 19. - (R) --
Strong favor is developing in the
house ways and means committee for
new income tax rates which would
leave the smaller income taxpayer as
he is but take away nearly three-
quarters of a $10,000,000 income. The
present tax on $10,000,000 is about
63 per cent.
Those questioned about the matter
were careful to emphasize that no de-
cision had been reached by the com-
mittee, which is studying 29 different
schedules. They said, however, that
the one which has aroused special
interest among them is a "middle of
the road" idea and therefore worthy
of particular study.
Committee Democrats have singled
out this schedule for analysis by their
own expert, Lovell H. Parker, chief of
staff of the joint congressional com-
mittee on internal revenue. He pre-
pared statistics comparing the pro-
posed new schedule with existing
taxes as well as those levied in
1918, 1919, 1924 and 1926.

Escorted out of the big leagues by
Father Time, Frank "Lefty" O'Doul,
.the man who made the green suit a
landmark in baseball, is carving out a
new career for himself as a minor
From the uniform of a New York
Giants player last year, O'Doul
slipped into a managerial toga this
spring and in half a season has won
recognition as a pilot of the San
Francisco Seals of the Pacific Coast
He's established himself as a man-
ager who sees and seizes his chances,
an aggressive leader who works his
players up to a furious fighting pitch
and demands results. His credo is
"make the most runs and you'll win
the game." Off the field he pals with
the men who call him boss.
The rangy southpaw who twice led
the National league in batting has
seen his direct methods materialize
into "action" with a capital "A."
During mid-season his team won
three games in one series by scores
of 24-6, 17-7, and 17-3! The Seals
may not be up on top when the sea-
son ends but their base hit bom-
bardments will remain long in the
memory of the fans.
A Bench-Sitting Iaoss
O'Doul does his "master-minding"
from the bench. "It's a tough job
to manage a club from the outfield,"
he says. "Ty Cobb tried it with De-
troit and Tris Speaker brought
Cleveland to a pennant, but generally
speaking a manager trying to run
things from the outfield is under a
In his first season as a manager,
the one-time star who favors green
civvies the year around has had a
hand in the development of two
youngsters he thinks will duplicate
his own more than 10 years' service
in the majors.
Like their manager, they're out-
fielders. One, Joe Di Maggio, already
is recognized as one of the finest
prospects ever turned up in the Coast

'Rivals Hornsby, Heilmann'
"Joe can't miss," says O'Doul.
"He rivals Harry Heilmann and Rog-
ers Hornsby as a right handed bat-
ter. He's a natural player, does
everything right and never lets down.
When the stage fright wears off and
he acquires the polish that comes
with big league play, Di Maggio will
be a riot in the American league."
The two Joes aren't taking back
seats in the matter of hitting. When
the season went over the half-way
mark, Di Maggio was clouting at
the average of .382 and Joe Marty had
a respectable .306.
