Norris, governor I of the Philadelphia Federal Reserve District for permission to reopen, very presumably tomorrow’. Some banks opened in Philadelphia today, and word was received from Washington that certain cities out side of Philadelphia including Chester would get the signal tomorrow to resume normal banking operations. | Official word on reopening will be re-‘ reived early tomorrow morning, it is confidently expected. Meanwhile business is more normal in Chester, following the issuance of scrip on Saturday morning, which made up payrolls for various stores and industries. Local merchants eagerly accepted the scrip and a real revival in sales was shown. The scarcity of a medium of exchange for the past week was reflected in the rush of buyers to stores once they possessed the scrip which to all purposes is identical with government cur*- 'icy. Incidentally, the Chester Clearing House Association points out that every piece of scrip issued in Chester is backed up by United States currency, deposited at the Delaware County National Bank, trustee. County banks also have filed application for reopening and word of their resumption is expected tomorrow’ or the day after. It is emphasized by all Federal Reserve and state banking officials that the order of opening has nothing to do with the weakness or soundness of the banks. laical bank officials are calling attention to the government ban on Continued on Page Fourteen FORMER''(’(HINT!

SUN TANKSHIPS ARE SPEED RIVALS Friendly Argument Re-tween C aptains Results in Two Ocean Races How an argument between two captains of Sun Oil tankers, ore of which docked at the Marcus Hook plant of tile company last r.gbt, developed into an exciting race from Panama to San Pedro. Cal, was told by members of the crew of one today. Both boats were in port in the Canal Zone when Captain R c Montague. of the Mercury Sun. and Captain Fred Lyall, of the Southern Sun. entered into a friendly discussion as to the merits of their respective ships regarding speed, each claiming to have the fastest vessel. The final decision was, that the boats should start from Panama for San Pedro, a distance of approximately 2990 miles, a half hour apart During the entire trip they kept in sight of each other and when the goal line was reached the Mercury Sun, the .scratch boat, won the race by a margin of five minutes. Not satisfied with the result of the race. Captain Lyall promptly issued a challenge to Captain Montague for another race back to Panama as both vessels had to return to that port. On the return trip from San Pedro to Panama, the Southern Sun dropped anchor eleven hours before the arrival of the other ship. From Panama, the Mercury Sun cleared for New York, and the Southern Sun steamed out of the harbor for Marcus Hook.

LOS ANGELES, March 13 - (UP' — Southern California, emerging from the terror and desolation of a major disaster, was able to approximate for the first time today the staggering cost of an earthquake that spread death in a score of towns and cities. The list of fatalities from Friday : night’s shocks hovered around 135 as authorities began checking individuals reported missing or unaccounted .for. So great was the confusion that coroner's deputies had conflicting lists of victims, As reports of wrecking crews reached headquarters in the .stricken districts, the possibility developed that composite property losses might reach $60,000,000 in tile 400 square miles visited by the temblor. Tins was almost ten times Initial estimates made Saturday. First inspections, officials said, did not reveal the true extent of the damage sustained by Long Beach, Compton Huntington Park, Los Angeles and other cities within the shaken area. Tile compo.ate loss figure, growing hourly as more detailed reports came in from ravaged cities, increased the ta, k facing local and governmental officials entrusted with the task of rehabilitation. Their problem was the more acute because of the national financial crisis, and the fact that southern California was unable to help itself through banking channels. Citizens in the damaged towns felt with renewed alarm the apparently increasing intensity of “settling quakes.” After every disastrous temblor In the state's history including the San Francisco and Santa Barbara catac- Continued on Page I ourfeen SMALL BOY’S MISHAP %    -atir— -________-____* Leonard Murphy, seven years old, of 1124 Meadow lune, received a deep laceration of the forehead yesterday afternoon, when he wa.'' struck by a piece of ice at his home.

Tile President left the door open to Ot digress to legalize wine apparently if it determines flint that beverage was not intoxicating when lie said "and other beverages of .such alcoholic content as is permissible under the Constitution.” His move in recommending bonus an emergency measure was somewhat unexpected When the possibility was broached last week, the White House indicated Mr Roosevelt would let Congress put the measure on the calendar without special word from him. Shortly before noon today, however. tile White House ga va out the bonds March 13 The treasury has announced short-term issues, at th* high rate.-, of 4 and 4'. per cent, to meet this financial problem. Reading ot the message in the Senate passed without immediate floor discussion.

Speaker Ramey wa obliged ta constantly rap for order so that the brief message might be heard in its entirety. /Vs the message ended, the demonstration was repeated with scores of i t pis sew alives on both sides shouting “vote' and demanding an immediate show down. Speaker Ramey referred the message to the Ways and Means Commit** tee. Hep.

"For one thing it required the manufacturer of non-intoxicating boer to secure a license from the prohibition bureau instead oi the Internal Revenue Bureau and it imposed the same penalties for violation as those im-Ilost d ii)K>n manufacturers of intoxicating liquor.” “Did Hint bill make any provision for light wines?” asked Rep.

Most members of Congress were taken by surprise at the President’s move, as the expectation laid been general that beer legislation would go over until the enactment of the Roosevelt emergency program. Only leaders were advised earlier that the message was going to the Capitol at noon. Atter a hasty conference, Speaker Rainey said the procedure would be to select one of the multitude of beer bills already introduced, refer it to the Ways and Means Committee, and then pass it. No hearings will be held, he said. The House will pass the bill prior to the expected recess on Wednesday, but it is doubtful if an attempt will , be made to push it through the I Senate before the legislators recon-j vene after the recess.
