-tibn Received No Money.
Washington, jan, 26. -i- With the
approval of Chairman Walsh, mem
bers of the house committee investi
gating the shipping board, declared
in a statement that they "were satis
fied" that the charge that Charles M.'

penses while serving as wartime di
rector of the .emergency fleet cor
poration "was riot proven and
further that it was not true." -
The statement -was issued .by. Rep
resentative . Steele, dentocrat of

the other members who heard t fie
testimony ; relating to -the $260,000
voucher. Its issuance ' in "ad
vance of the full report of the com
mittee was unusual, - but members
explained that it had been decided
to ;take such action on the grounds
of fairness to one unjustly accused.
It was explained by Mj Steele
that there might have been some im
propriety in an utterance of an in
vestigating committee in advance of
i ofhctal finding but that there was
urgent demand for an expression in
view of Mr. Schwab's public service.
Indication of the committee's feel
ing' was given by Representative

Mr. Schwab was testifying in New

resentative Connally, democrat,
Texas, "that Mr. Schwab did not re
ceive a dollar from the United States

as expenses while serving as director-general
