a~Aig«na (la.) Upp«r D»» Molnw Thuridoy, Oct. 15, 1959 r- PARTIES "ON THE HOUSE" The prdbe, in the House of Representatives in Congress, into the activities of the "munitions lobby" is turning up Interesting information. In is somewhat sensational, yet compare* lively little is printed about it. Martin Aircraft, for example, has made a regular practice of flying higtvranking military officers to a swank resort on one of the Bahama Islands for lavish weekend parties at company expense. The firm also operates a yachting and hunting club in Maryland., t Sperry Rand, one of the giant defense contractors, lavishly entertains military guests on Gardiner's Island, near Long Island. These are but two of a number of instances produced in testimony. Another feature of the military contract situation is that officers of high rank in all three branches of the service plan and carry out ad' vertising campaigns for the rival weapons of the Army, Navy and Air Force, with the cost paid for by the contracting companies and of course added to the cost of the final product, which incidentally is paid for from tdx money. All of us (,3 along with sensible and honest expenditures for military purposes, even though fundamentally we may feel some of it is wasted. But it does make the blood boil a little to realize how some of these contracts drq obtained, and how cost-plus expense sheets are padded. This is especially true along about income tax time. More power to the Congressional investigating committee. • it "ft * PRICING OURSELVES OUT? Growing numbers of American businessmen, are becoming aware of a new problem. There are places outside this nation where we are being beaten at our own game of mass- production. And these foreign manufacturers are grabbing more and more markets. There is a spreading conceVn in some quarters that we are pricing ourselves out of world markets — and even in some markets at home. The concern is real. The Federal Reserve Board chairman, William McC. .Martin made a world tour. He says:,."ln a fairly short time we are going to find ourselves priced out of the , market." . Autos made by American firms, but made abroad, are arriving-in increasing numbers. BUSINESS checked, then will reoeh th* polht of being Out of the world hiafk*t»" If that happens, d few million American workers will be out f»f |bb§. * * ' t SHOULD EVERYONE (30 f0 COLLEdEt Norihwood Atitttfcr — College enrollment is growing every year— partly because $f fowling population, partly because of the demand for college-trained men aftd women, and partly, we fear, because going to college Is just ''the thing to do." Without doubt there are many young people attending college who have no business there. Eventually they'll be weeded out—but in the meantime will have wasted their own time and money, plus classroom space and Instruction time which may be more serious. We don't suggest that every young person shouldn't have an opportunity for higher education. However, a young man or women will do well before chasing off to some college just because a friend goes there, to > seriously consider his own aptitudes, inclinations and purposes in life. Then he may decide the type of higher education for him—college, trade school, business course, apprenticeship or on-thc-job training. * * * BENSON INFORMATION* '•••' Indlanola Tribune — Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson hds Spent more in six years in office than the combined outlays of all previous secretaries since the post was created ninety-seven years ago. Mr Benson,has spent $31 billion, as against a total of $27.6 billion for all his predecessors. Mr Be.rj.son,,-. who was going to eliminate bureaucracy from the department of agriculture, has 'cut' it by increasing the payroll from 65,000 to ' 85,000 persons. Mr Benson has, however, proved the productivity-of the.,.average American farmer. By lowering grain prices, and removing compliance controls, •he has helped bring about what promises to be a record-breaking corn crop for 1959. Here again, however, the end result was a bit different than the beginning promise of what would be accom- \ plished.
