Washington, : Nov. 10. WASHING
Sever condemnation of shipping board
practices and charges of "nuumerable
leaks and outright graft are contained in
a report made public today by Repre
sentative Walsh of Massachusetts, chair
man of the house investigating commit
tee, which vfslted the Faciflo coast last
year. The report covers the work of
two ! experts employed by the commit
tee, A. M. Fisher and J. F, Richardson.
Th contract with George F, Rodgers
for removal of unfinished? ways is
scored, investigators reporting $5000 a
hull j was paid when no work actually
was performed.
Ati official of the Bard a company ia
asserted to be acting in a "dual capac
ity," being- also a member of the ship
ping: .board cancellation and claims
board, and careful Investigation of the
Barde company's relations is recom
mended. The report bristles with allegations of
waste, incompetence and graft running
all through the shipping board opera
tions from supervising officials, con
tractors, and masters of ships down to
ship stewards and clerks. Derelict of
ficials are not named and only a few
alleged questionable contracts are listed,
including those of Rodgers and Barde,
the American Lumber Sales company
and Southern Scrap Material company.
The American Lumber- concern, com
posed in part of former officials of the
Fleet corporation, is alleged to have
used government plants to reap enor
mous profits from sales of materials it
purchased, and similar practices are
charged against the Southern Scrap com
pany, with, profits running over 100 per
cent on material sold by the Fleet cor
poration representatives at New Or
leans for it's benefit
,Of I Rodgers: contract the report says :
"Among other contracts which have
been severely criticised is the George F.
Rodgers hull removal contract This
covers generally all hulls in an unfin
ished state at the time of the armistice.
or rather at time the contract win
Rodgers was signed. Under bis con
ract ; Rodgers ia to remove these hulls
from the building ways or is to secure
from builders of the hulls and owners
of the land upon which the hulls " and
ways rest a release from further lia
bility. "For some reason the shipping board
saw fit to contract with Rodgers to pay
him $5000 for each hull thus handled.
The result has been that in many cases
the Shipping board has paid an addi
tional $5000 a hull to have Rodgers sell
the hull or give it away, in many cases
the cost of the hull representing sev
eral thousand dollars. .
"Rodgers has found little difficulty In
selling the hulls to the builders or oth
ers at a very fair price, which revenues,
under his contract revert to Rodgers, in
addition to which he collected the Fleet
corporation's $5000 a hull fee, and in so
few cases has Rodgers had to remove
the hulls from: the ways at all that the
question has arisen in the minds of a
great many persons' as to why. Since
these hulls were so easily disposed of at
a return; the supply and sales depart
ment of the Fleet corporation could not
have disposed of-the hulls in the same
manner in which Rodgers did, conserv
ing to the Fleet corporation the $5000 a
hull paid Rodgers and in addition, reap
ing whatever monetary returns have ac
crued from sale of the hulls.
"ThiB contract should be gone thor
oughly into by this committee for the
purpose of ascertaining what if any,
advantage accrued the Fleet corpor
ation from such a contract as well as to
determine what officials of , the v Fleet
corporation committed it to the contract

been successful from the standpoint of
price, millions ef dollars of materials
so far sold having netted not more than

declared to have been at a time when

favoritism: is alleged
"The question seems to be ens of mal
administration rather than one of fun
damental condiUons in so far as limited
returns from sal of materials is con
oerned. The Barde company went to
the shipping board after a contract was
made with Karris Bros, and Bard com
pany offered and paid $1,009,000 more
than Harris Bros, had paid for exactly
the sam contract. This created a great
deal of discussion and it was charged
by the Barde company that the supply
and sales department ef the shipping
board, through f avoritlsni to Harris
Bros., was endeavoring to embarrass
the Barde company by not fulfilling the
contract as the shipping: board had
agreed. This contract covered steel and
other materials. ;
"Bards, now. It Is said, is trying to
arrange to purchase under blank con
tract all the supplies and stores the
Fleet corporation has, one of the argu
ments being that this will enable the
shipping board to dispense with its sup
ply and sales department
"It must be remembered, however,
Barde is figuring from the basis of net
returns as secured by the supply and
sales department Instead of from, a basis
of proper return for these stores and
materials. One of the officials of the
Barde company is also an adviser to the
shipping board cancellation and claims
board and as such exercises a dual ca
pacity. . This proposed contract should
be gone into very -thoroughly by this
On the subject of corruption the re
port says. . . ,
"Usually attempts are made, by con
tractors, and in many casea apparently
successfully, to secure the favor of
th port construction and repair repre
sentative who has the assignment of
work to th various contractors, and the
local United States Shipping Board
Emergency Fleet corporation agency au
ditor, who has under his charge the
checkers and tlmkeepers.
"Of course, It Is also necessary to cor
rupt timekeepers and checkers in order
that the work done by inferior labor but
charged for on 'the basis of skilled labor
may pass inspection, and that loafing
of men or padding of payrolls may go
: "This again results in good men being
heckled, insulted or even frightened off
the .work, whers they will not prove
susceptible to corruption. It Is com
paratively an easy matter to 'accident
ally' drop, a bar or wrench into the
hold, when a 'straight' timekeeper or in
spector is standing under, and thus It
is not long before honest men are dis
rusted and discouraged and others are
"One form of corruption most com
mon is for the contractor to hire and
place r on his payrolls the efficient men
who cannot openly be bought This re
sults not only In -rome employes of the
American Emergency Fleet corporation
being carried on payrolls of contractors
and drawing pay from them at the same
time the employe is drawing pay from
the Emergency 'R'leet corporation and
engaged in the service of the contrac
tor." In other cases, the report says, "prom
ises or ruture lucrative positions" are
roads to shipping board employes in
an effort to tinge their judgment or
sway their allegiance to their duty."
Favoritism in allocation of ships and,
trade routes is charged, "where political
Influence or influence through officials
of the shipping board themselves resulted
in assignment of tonnage to companies
with which the officials were or had
been associated."
Extensive craft is altered in ship sup
plies with profit to masters, chief en
gineers, stewards and others, in most
cases In collusion with contractors and
ship chandlers and theft of supplies is
said to be so prevalent as to be highly
menacing to the success of the merchant
marine. ,
Political influence is alleged to have
been frequently successful in securing
contracts for ships, modifications, ex
tensions and settlements. 1 Ship . con
tractors are alleged in some cases to
have instituted Liberty bond campaigns
among employes 'and charged 10 per
cent. to ship construction account
Supply of shipping board boats is al
leged to be largely in the hands of firms
who will pay gratuities, make deliveries
at any hour and charge the cost to the
shipping board. Stupendous losses, ag
gregating perhaps 40 and 50 per' cent
are said to occur in ship supplies.
Manipulations of repair contracts to
produce overcharges and excess profits
ar declared of vast smount and "so
tommon that it can easily be proved in
practically every port of: the United

Marriage Is Unique

At Local Florist's
A crowd which taxed .the standing-

shop ! Tuesday ' evening witnessed f a
unique wedding ceremony read by th
Rev. Frank L. Wemett pastor of the
Centenary Methodist church, when Miss
Pearl Lapp of Marehfield and Wendell
Lechner of the store management were
married. The sales room of th store,
in i spite of its commercial day time at

setting of the season's choicest blooms
for the wedding. A bridal arch of tall
standards of chrysanthemums in yellow
and white combined with palms and in
terwoven with greenery was fashioned
over the stairway and ther the young
couple tood for the service. An or
chestra played the wedding music and
continued its strains softly through, th
service. j

costume and her flowers were a corsage
of orchids and baby rosea. The brides
maid was Miss Minnie Schulta of Fort

The idea of the wedding ceremony in
the store started some time ago when A.

a wedding celebration at th company's
expense. Lechner later announced his
