Net receipts in October amounted to $2,030,000,000, of which $557,000,000 represented payroll deduction under the current payment tax act, a $117,000,00 decline from September. September net receipts of $5.447,000,000 reflected third quarter tax payments. Total governmental expenditures for the first four months of the current fiscal year aggregaged $291720,000,000, of which $27,605,000,000 went for war purposes. In the corresponding period a year ago total spending was $22,246,000,000, of which $20,247,000,000 was for the war.

Washington By JACK STINNETT Washington — at the moment, the "contract terminations" program is in that state of flux whic^i all big government projects go through in their infancy — that is', they are pulled this way and that to see what agency, wjll gain con-' trol. With billions involved, that is understandable. It's no secret that the General Accounting Office would like to have the job of winding up Uncle Sam's affairs with producers of war materials. It's no secret either that the A:-my partic- uarly, but also the navy, maritime commission, lend-lease and several others would prefer they be given a free hand to terminate their contracts in their own way. There's no doubt Congress is going to have a hand in it, probably, according to observers on the hill, by the creation of a new agency, to settle the 50 billions or so of unfulfilled contracts that may be outstanding when this war ends. Right now a Senate subcommittee of the military affairs commit- Lee is holding hearings with legislation in mind. In the House, the ways and means committee has a contract renegotiations bu-commit- tee which already is talking of extending its activities to "contract terminations." It's possible that the administration has beaten both of them to the draw. It recently established the war contracts renegotiation policy board, headed by Joseph M, Dodge, chairman of the War De r partment price adjustment board, with representatives from the navy, maritime commission, War Shipping Administration, the Treasury, RFC and WPB. Although their duties were specifically sent forth as renegotiation of contracts lo eliminate excessive profits, it is being said that if they function effectively, the administration would like to hand over to them the vital program of terminations. The army already has and is coiv inuing to hold a beautiful dress •ehearsal for peace, time contract erminalions. They have terminat- 3d some 8,000 contracts worth about five billion dollars, and out of this, less than 500 cases have iad to drag through as much as six months of red tape before final settlement.
