On Ship Squabble
Voucher for $260,000 Found
( In Audit of Books Explained
By Former Assistant

Ray Burleigh; Tpungest
"Sammie," Weds in Lincoln
New York, Jan. 21. Admiral Ben
son, chairman of the shipping board,
had "determined to commandeer the
vards of the Bethlehem Ship Build
ing corporation" if it were necessary,
'to adjust tlft dispute over the audit
of its books, Martin J. Gillen in
formed the Walsn congressional
committee. Gillen was a former spe
cial assistant to the chairman.
The Bethlehem concern, Gillen
said, did not object to the audit,
but to the employment of the firm
of Ferley Morse & Co. in con
nection with the same. The auditing
firm's employes, he added, had been
refused admission to the corpora
tion yards after the audit was or
dered. At a conference to bring
about an adjustment of the difficulty,
Gillen said it was necessary to bring
pressure to bear on both sides.
- Gillen declared that the voucher
for $260,000 which the preceding
witness. Col. h. H. Abadie, tormer
comptroller general of the shipping
board, had- brought into the testi
mony was discussed at the confer
ence. The voucher, Colonel Abadie
said he had been informed by the
auditor, was for the October, 1918,
personal expenses of Charles M.
Schwab, chairman of the board of
directors of the Bethlehem Steel cor
poration and a former director gen
eral of the emergency fleet corpora
tion. Gillen testified , the item was
charged to profit and loss by the
Bethlehem Ship Building corporation
"and was not charged in any way to
the shipping board ot-the navy. The
witness added, he had been informed
at conferences with the auditors that
there was "nothing wrong with that
item." He declared further it was
"regrettable that anything should
arise which would in the least im
pugn the motives of men who had
risen to positions of responsibility in
Continuing, the witness denied that
he forced the resignation of Colonel
Abadie, as the latter had testified, or
that there was any illf feeling be
