HITS AT BAIRD FOB SENATE SCENE ENDING IN FIGHT
June 5.-An open break between David
Baird, Jr., and Senate President Emerson L. Richards, of Atlantic, was
issued a statement attacking Baird and Assemblyman Frank
M. Travaline Jr., of Camden as an aftermath to a fight in the Senate
corridor last Thursday afternoon.
alleges he was assaulted by B. George Ulizio, of Pine Valley, former
Atlantic City real estate man, and close friend of Richards.
tonight, an Assembly committee was appointed to investigate the attack at Travaline's
request. Ulizio has denied any knowledge of the attack but he was
identified by several witnesses and by Richards himself in his statement.
of the Assembly action, Richards declared:
Travaline has made a
nuisance of himself all during the session. I did not know it was he that
was interrupting my speech last Thursday. After I was interrupted twice,
he then left.
got out by the door and turned around and Ulizio heard him address an
insulting remark to me which of course I did not hear because the door was
closed. He and Ulizio got into an altercation which wound up in the
outside corridor. Ulizio does not represent me in any way.
Travaline was put up to
making this attack by Baird,
who was in the state house this afternoon. Apparently some of the
Assemblymen, including Travaline,
won't work and won't let the Senate work. They haven't added a single
constructive thought this session."
Brings It Up
on a question of personal privilege, Travaline
brought the matter before the Assembly, declaring that he was assaulted
"without provocation in the Senate chamber by B. George Ulizio, who
ran for cover into the private office of the Senate President and hid
behind the skirts of a woman."
Travaline urged that the
Assembly act, Assemblyman Herbert J. Pascoe, of Union, made a motion that
a committee be appointed to call on Ulizio for a public apology.
Assemblyman Theron McCampbell, of Monmouth, moved to amend the motion to
provide that the committee first investigate the case and then report back
to the Assembly. His amendment was defeated.
Joseph Altman, of Atlantic, majority leader, questioned the procedure and
whether the Assembly had the right to demand such an apology. Then
Assemblyman Clarence A. Ward, of Union, proposed an amendment that the
committee confer with Senate President Richards. Assemblyman Anthony J.
Siracusa, also of Atlantic, objected to this and Minority leader John J.
Rafferty, of Middlesex, suggested that it be determined definitely by the
Assembly just what occurred "in the
corridor" before calling on the Senate President.
took place behind the reporters' desk in the Senate chamber," Travaline
corrected. He was corroborated by Assemblyman Eugene W. Hejke, of Hudson.
then suggested that Ulizio could be arrested by the Assembly or be barred
from the State House.
to Drop It
Siracusa suggested that the Assembly leaders confer with Senate President
Richards and then report back to the Assembly, Travaline
than see this whitewashed, I'd prefer to drop the whole matter and take
care of it myself."
more discussion Speaker Charles A. Otto named Majority Leader Altman,
Minority Leader Rafferty and himself to confer with Senate President
Richards, Senate majority Leader Clifford R. Powell, of Burlington, and
Senate Minority Leader Blase Cole on the case.
Travaline charges that Ulizio struck him, forcing him to fall when he tripped over his topcoat, during an argument during last Thursday's Senate session. Ulizio, though admitting he was in the State House at the time, has denied any knowledge of the attack. .

Control Charge Denied by
blasted Travaline Jr.
for his declaration in the Assembly that B. George Ulizio, of Pine Valley,
formerly of Atlantic City, whom he accused of assaulting him in the Senate
week, was "rumored to be Senator Richards' campaign manager. I
statement last night, Travaline Jr. charged the Atlantic county senator
was making a "wild dash to ensnare the Republican organization
nomination for governor of New Jersey" and forgot "details and
personal feelings of individuals."
an incident rather unusual
in the annals of the Legislature and which should have been dealt with in
a dignified manner, as I tried to make it, Senator Richards, in an
apparent attempt to come to the rescue of an individual who has been
discredited in the minds of most people who know him, has seen fit to inject the
name of an innocent and honest gentleman so as to take the light from the
culprit and from himself. Up to the moment of this statement, I have not
discussed, nor have I told Senator Baird
of any of the details or even the
outline of this incident in Trenton. As a matter of fact, I believe
knows nothing more about this than he
may have been able to read from the newspapers. It is a totally uncalled
for and unfair and unsportsmanlike accusation that Senator Richards hurls
at Senator Baird
and is quite characteristic of the
one who makes the accusation. As a member of the House and corroborated by
the statements of two other members, even though of different political
faith, who were eyewitnesses of the entire proceeding, one would think
that the president of the Senate would be inclined to accept our word
rather than that of a man of whom he says: 'I assume no responsibility for
Ulizio. He does not represent me in any way.'
Richards, in his usual precipitous manner, according to authoritative
reports, takes it upon himself to charge the members of the Assembly with
being disinclined to work, and as not having had one constructive thought
to date. To people who observe and appreciate conditions in the
Legislature, it needs no stretch of the Imagination to discern that the work of all of the members of the Legislature, all of whom are
conscientious ladies and gentlemen, is being impeded by the personal
ambitions of the president of the Senate, who unquestionably is in a
position of control and authority in the Senate. I am personally
satisfied that every member of the Assembly, as well as every member of
the Senate, has tried conscientiously to perform her or his duty up to
date and are not disinclined to work and are not interfering with the
program of Senator Richards, expect
where the best interests of the people of this State are sacrificed for
the blind ambition of Senator Richards to be his party's choice for
governor. Senator Richards goes to great length to accuse me of being and
having been a nuisance during the session by going in the Senate chamber
and talking loudly. If this were true, Senator Richards is the presiding
officer of the Senate and he has never to date
made any complaint or even said as much as a word to me, indicating that
my presence was not desired in the Senate.
whole situation, as far as Senator Richards is concerned, in my personal,
opinion, is that he apparently forgets details and the personal
feelings of individuals in his wild dash to ensnare the party's nomination
for governor. It has been stated publicly on the floor of the House of
Assembly that he has on more than one occasion insulted members of the
he insulted and later had to apologize to Assemblyman Chamberlain of
Mercer county for having had him expelled from the senate floor, yet no
one has dared to say that Assemblyman Chamberlain is not a gentleman. In
addition, not more than a month ago, the personal aide and representative
of Assemblyman Muir was sent to the Senate
chamber on official business by Assemblyman Muir. He was expelled by
direction and order of the Senate president for which incident Senator
Richards received a stinging rebuke publicly
on the floor of the Assembly.
Assemblyman Muir, threatened physically to eject Senator Richards if he ever dared again to visit the House of Assembly without permission. Furthermore, I have been advised that the clerk of the House of Assembly, Robert Purdy, a former member of the House, was in the Senate on official business and was ordered ejected by the Senate president, all of which was uncalled for. This is a course of conduct that denotes either that the world is wrong and Senator Richards is right, or that Senator Richards is wrong and the world is right."

Walter E. Edge of Atlantic City, former U. S. senator and former ambassador to France. is going to build a large home in Haddonfield ... Incidentally. the city made one economy move that is costing dough-de-ohdough ... We refere to that day three months ago when nearly all the offices in the city hall were deprived of paper towels ... For now the municipal employes are using other paper and three times as much of it as they formerly used of towels ... So that the city has to spend more than it saves ...
This week we heard one of the most ironical paragraphs of the year...Or any year for that matter. In a certain municipality (you guess) a man works for the relief committee doing odd jobs here and there .. He gets a salary of $6 a week (believe it or not, Mr. Ripley) ... So a couple days ago he asked his boss, who was the relief director, for some relief for himself, as he was hungry and didn't get enough money to buy meals regularly, let alone buy clothing .. So what do you think happened? .. Sure ... He was turned down ...
That pest (the one who used to claim he was Commander John D. Pennington's bodyguard) now says he has been selected as deputy U. S. marshal for this district to fill the vacancy caused by Paul McLaughlin's resignation ... By the bye, what former federal employee runs a whisper-low in Philadelphia and did so even when he worked for the government? .. It is, however, a respectable, or as respectable as speaks can be.
Why, every time it rains, is the rondpoint at the airport flooded?
There's the reader who asks us to warn that suburban cop ... Who has been cheating for three years with a "Wrong Number, Sir" gal .. To his children, however, he is an idol. .. That South Jersey feller who shot his woman companion and then killed himself recently ... Both were buried in the same grave ... By his wife ... Because the dead woman's relatives couldn't be found and the widow wanted her to have a Christian burial ... So orchids to her ... And, incidentally. the reports that he had filed divorce papers were erroneous ... The wife had filed suit ... Assemblyman Frank M. Travaline Jr., who forgot to duck up in the senate cham bers not so long ago, is going to be married July 1. .. And on that same day a certain radio station attache and a Parkside girl are planning to surprise all their friends by getting married in New York .... Ooooh, the big tattle-tale ... But if you only knew who told us about it. ... He at tended Camden High School ... The bride-to-be attended Camden Catholic High ....

|JURY REFORM WINS, ROAD RIPPER LOSES
Legislature Adopts Bill to Make Governor Boss of State Finances
Trenton, June 22 (Thursday) The Senate early today approved Senator Joseph G. Wolber's jury reform bill providing for appointment of jury commissioners by Supreme Court Justices.
Senate President Emerson L. Richards, of Atlantic, failed to muster enough votes to pass the amendment to the state constitution to permit lotteries, a companion to the horse racing bill approved Monday night. He laid it over when he could obtain only four votes in its favor.
The Assembly killed the Civil Service "ripper" bill affecting the State Highway Department, which was passed by the Senate Monday night. The vote was 22 for and 34 against.
Two Named to Board
Senator David Young, of Morris, and Mayor Frank Dorsay, of Perth Amboy, were nominated and immediately confirmed to succeed Firman M. Reeves and Abraham Jelin on the State Highway Commission when their resignations become effective September 1.
The key bill of the Princeton survey fiscal reform measures was adopted by the Assembly and is ready for Governor Moore's signature. Sponsored by Senator Dryden Kusel, of Somerset, it will make the governor virtual czar over state spending by provision for a state finance commissioner who will be directly responsible only to the governor. The vote was 40 to 10.
A snag was reached, however, on one of the other fiscal bills. Four were passed by the Assembly Monday night as adopted by the Senate two weeks ago, but a fifth, creating a new budgeting system, was amended in the Assembly to remove legis lative control of funds of professional boards.
The Senate by a vote of 5 to 9, refused to concur in the amendment. Senate and Assembly leaders were in conference in an effort to reach an agreement.
A minor Assembly amendment in Kuser's bill was approved by the Senate. It eliminated the provision that the state finance commissioner should act as secretary of the state sinking fund commission.
Assemblyman F. Stanley Bleakly, of Camden, aided by Assemblyman Marcus W. Newcomb, of Burlington, led the unsuccessful opposition to the Kuser bill.
Assemblyman Joseph Altman, of Atlantic, handled the bill on the floor and engaged in a lively verbal tilt with Bleakly.
"The bill does not honestly carry out the Princeton Survey recommendations but merely adds another group of jobs, Including that of the finance commissioner at $10,000 a year, to the state government," said Bleakly.
Supporters of the bill pointed out that the Princeton Survey recommendations begin as follows:
1. The creation of a department of fiscal control, consisting of a di vision of purchasing, accounting and budgeting.
2. Transfer of certain functions of the state house commission to the commissioner of fiscal control, who shall be the direct agent of the governor."
"This is part of the general scheme or deals which has marked this session of the Legislature," Bleakly continued. "We have plenty of machinery now to check on the state's finances and expenditures. There is the budget department, the purchasing department and the civil service department on salaries. This only adds another unnecessary department with about $30,000 in salaries."
In reply Altman said the bill was an economy measure, that it did follow the Princeton Survey recommendations and that no politics were involved.
In addition to the Camden members and Newcomb, Gurk, of Gloucester; King, of Morris; Kinzley, of Bergen; Mutchler, of Morris; Platts, of Essex, and Willis, of Ocean, all Republicans, voted in the negative.

Legislature Makes Sunday Beer Sales Legal
Trenton, June 22.-Sale of beer on Sundays after 1· p. m. and over bars is permitted in a bill adopted by the Legislature before adjournment early today.
The bill, extending the present law from July 1 to September 1, provides that any municipality may authorize Sunday and bar sales by resolution. It differs from a similar bill passed in the Assembly Monday, but not acted on by the state, in that there is no provision for local referenda.
The new measure went across in both branches of the Legislature after tempestuous scenes in the Assembly, where it passed on a second roll call, 31 to 18. Assemblyman Cunard, Republican, of once dry Salem, provided the necessary thirtyfirst vote.
The measure was sponsored by Assemblyman Muir, blind Republican from Union county. As introduced, it contained no Sunday provision but during first debate it was amended for that purpose by Assemblyman Pascoe, also of Union.
The Assembly roll call:
For-Altman, Atlantic; Blank, Essex; Bleakly, Camden; Bradley, Essex; Burrell, Essex; Carpenter, Mercer; Cavinato, Bergen; Chamberlin, Mercer; Cunard, Salem; Doughty, Bergen; Fort, Essex; Gurk, Gloucester; Gratowski, Essex; Hunt, Cape May; Kinzley, Bergen; Hamill, Monmouth; Mutchler, Morris; Naughright, Essex; Otto, Union; Pascoe, Union; Platts, Essex; Preiser, Essex; Schock, Monmouth; Siracusa, Atlantic; Tamboer, Passaic; Travaline, Camden; Trube, Essex, Waugh, Essex; Willis, Ocean; Yuill, Essex-31.

Not recorded-Brown, Middlesex; Burke, Middlesex; Calabrese, Essex; Downing, Sussex; Maloney, Hudson; Muir, Union; Peters, Bergen; Reinert, Camden; Schroeder, Bergen; Turner, Cumberland; Ward, Union -11.
Eight were recorded for the bill on the first Senate roll call. Senators Barbour, of Passaic, and Kusel, of Somerset, who were out of the Senate chamber were sent for and each came in and was recorded for the bill. The measure still lacked one to pass.
Four Senators had refrained from being recorded either way. This group included Woodruff, who, however, voted "aye" when the roll was called for the third time. The final vote:
For-Barbour, Passaic; Durant, Monmouth; Ely, Bergen; Kuser, Somerset; Loizeaux, Union; Powell, Burlington; Richards, Atlantic; Stout, Hudson; Wolber, Essex; Woodruff, Camden; Young, Morris.11.

CHECKED AND DOUBLE CHECKED
The way some of the members of the Camden County Republican Committee are behaving these days, the Democrats can stay home on their own meeting nights .... The Republicans are doing their work for them .... Now some 70 of the Republican committeemen have signed a petition to give Baird a job that won't pay him anything.... It's about time they're giving him something .... They took the U. S. Senatorship away from him .... Moore took the governorship away from him .... Woodruff took the state committeeship away from him .... The New Deal took the city commission away from him .... The New Deal took the freeholders away from him:.:. Somebody always is taking something away from Baird ....
It isn't a question of Baird's ability to fill the bridge job .... The only one to even mention that as an issue was Fred von Nieda .... He's a city commissioner, you know .... It's a matter of principle .... At least, that is what Florence Baker, state committeewoman, says .... Mrs. Baker is telling Senator, Clee and others at Trenton that they owe it to Baird to support him for the job because he has always helped Clee ...Let's, in all fairness to Baird, look at the record .... In the primary, during an address at the First Ward Republican Club, Dave Baird stated he was for Cliff Powell against Clee .... Mrs. Baker did not come out against Clee .... She didn't come out against Powell. Instead, she said she was neutral. In the general election, Mrs. Baker said she was for Clee. Baird never said he was for Clee. (If he had, Clee's majority of 35,000 would have gone to Moore) ....
So we don't think that Mrs. Baker is very convincing when she tells Clee that Baird helped Clee .... She said that the Camden county legislative delegation helped Clee's program against Hoffman. Was Baird a Democrat last year? Sheehan, Roye and Lodge were .... Burling was a Republican, and helped Clee, but he is not for Baird. Perhaps it was because Baird "helped" Clee's program against Hoffman opposition, that Hoffman slipped in Baird's appointment without the knowledge of Burling or the state or county committee members .... Mrs. Baker stated at a banquet that she has copies of the Courier-Post in 1931 in which Baird was praised for his bridge work .... If anyone cares to look at our files, we will show what Mrs. Baker said about Baird in the neighborhood of 1931. ... Or what we said about Baird at other times .... Also what Mr. van Nieda and Frank Travaline said.
But enough ado about nothing .... All we've done is talked about Baird when it had been our plan instead to talk about politics.
* * *
political ax is hanging over the head of a Mt. Ephraim official on the
charge he is assuming too much authority ..... The political ax hanging
over the heads of the Delaware township cops is about to be enmeshed in
litigation .... One of the policeman is a member of the P.B.A. which will
carry his fight into court in a case that will be a precedent for the
other township cops, too .... Herb Taylor will be county engineer if it
goes to a Republican .... It may be a Democrat however, and newest among
the candidates, on that side of the ledger is former City Commissioner Carroll
P. Sherwood .... There may be only one assistant county solicitor
instead of two in which case it will probably go to Carleton Rowand, city
school board member ....
By the way, don't, be surprised if under the new contract between the city and county on maintenance of the City Hall, the city takes full control of the building with consent of the county ... Which will be tough on some of the county jobholders ...* * *.
Assemblyman Allen now denies he wants all us newspaper fellers to go to the guillotine ... He says he meant lawyers ... Charlie Humes wants to be guillotined ... Standing up ... Incidentally, Charlie is defending his last-place position in the ping-pong league tonight… Firefighter Lennox went to church the other day… And found the roof braced up. When will the borough of Merchantville fix up that dangerous hole in Browning road at the railroad tracks north of Maple Avenue? ... Or is that in the township?
Whenever the state police want Detective Wojtkowiak at the prosecutor's office, ·they ask for "Sergeant Watchyourcoatandhat" … The Mt. Ephraim commissioners are going to buy a police car for their chief ... He's also in for a pay rise ... Bellmawr's chief of police won't get the salary increase he wants, but he will get an additional allowance for the use of his car ... Runnemede's two new cops will also get pay increases …
The other day an alarm was sent to every police department in the county and also to the Philadelphia cops that a car had been stolen in Audubon ... The culprit is glad no cops saw him ... He was none other than a police official who wanted to borrow a storekeeper's car but took the wrong one by mistake ... His face is almost as red as Vince (deP) Costello's ... At the K. of C. roller skating exhibition the other night, Luke McKenna did a few fancy turns ... Vince recalled he, too, had been pretty good at one time, so he essayed to show his friends ... His intentions were better than his legs, and a couple of well-wishers followed him around the floor with a stretcher.
This all happened quietly The Runnemede police received a complaint from two storekeepers ... It appears that a group of high school students from another town had stopped off at Runnemede to purchase some cakes ... Several other articles disappeared from the stores ... A few days later the dean of the high school went to Runnemede paid one shopkeeper $10 and the other $2.60 ... Representing the goods they said were taken ...
Aside to that clairvoyant weakly editor who reported yesterday that Joe Van Meter is going to be the Republican nominee for sheriff: A sheriff cannot succeed himself in New Jersey ... Silvio Fittipaldi, former Haddon Heights High star, is a veterinarian and doing nicely ... A Philadelphia college professor who lives in Pennsauken uses his spare time writing a book ... Home by 4.30 p.m. from work, he retires at 8 p.m., rises at 3.30 a.m., writes for four hours, breakfasts and goes to work ... The Playcrafters are busy rehearsing "Post Road" for Feb. 18 and 19 ... A warrant is in the mails for a suburban doctor ... Illegal operation ... Fred Homer. Merchantville song-bird, had an audition in New York recently before the Metropolitan Opera Audition Committee ... What Collingswood shopkeeper's missus is having trouble getting a costume for a minstrel show? ... They're still looking for better buses on Route 14 ...
Carlton Rowand told this one at a dinner the other night… The foreman on a western WPA job wired Farley for more materials to finish the job ... "We need 2000 shovels in a hurry," the foreman wired ..."We ran out of shovels," replied Farley. "Let the men lean on each other."
