WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27, 1951 THE REGlSTER-NEV/5 — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS WASHINGTON Column BV PETER KDSON ^ NEA WasliinKton Correspondent Uncle Sam's ll()ii»i'Uf«>per WantH More Floor Spiice W ASHINGTON — (NEA) — Wtijliington is a crazy place —in case you hadn't hoard. On (he one hand, horo is (he goinK through all the \ /notions of tr/ins to reduce the number of government employes. And on the other hand, here _ Is the General Sorvicos Admin- Rlration (GSA), which is the gov- trnmcnt's houseitocprr, doing it.s darndcit to try to find more •office spa e and more records storage space to meet demands of the rapidly expanding defense agencies. They say they need nearly 2,000,000 SQuare feet of additional floor space for the 18,460 new employes they intend to hire in the next fiscal year. This is for the Washington area alone. % If that much floor space doesn't mean anything to you, it's roughly equivalent to one third of another Pentagon. Or, it's the equivalent of two seven-story office buildings a block long and a block wide. The government no'v figures it needs 100 square feet of floor space for every new bureaucrat and hireling. A couyile of years ago there wore 110 feet available. Today the crowded Pentagon is down to a 87-square-feet-per-em- # ploye basis. Defense Production Administration, National Production Authority, Office of Price Stabilization and Wage Stabilization Board need over lialf a million square feet of space for 5000 new employes to be added ir the next year. E .xpandlng Interior Interior needs 34,000 square feet for 340 new defense activity employes. Commerce need.s 200,«l 000 .square feet of storage space. ^ Atomic Energy Commission needs 20,000 square feet for 200 more employes. Department of State, which already occupies a main building, three former apartment houses and 20 other annexes, still needs room for 319 new employes in its information and education programs. Biggest demand of all, however, is for a n'lillion square feet of space for 10,000 new employes in g Department of Defense. There are now 31,000 people in the Pentagon. Armec. services offices slop over into 45 other buildings where there are 34.000 emploj-es. When the Pentagon ordered 10,000 desks for the 10,000 new em­ ployes it expects to hire next year, there was no place to store the furniture. General Services Administration advertised for two million square feet of warehouse for this and other records storage space within 15 miles of the Dis•0 trict of Columbia. It got 38 offers but none was acceptable. All wanted government loans and tax amortization (.speedy tnk write­ off) to finance the construction of new buildings. Every plan to solve the government's space problem by dispersal has thus far been stymied. A proposal to build eight new buildings at a cost of S197 million, to take care of 20,000 employes within 20 miles of Washington, was killed v'^ by the Senate. ^ A GSA plan to lease two new 300-unit apartment houses for Department of Defense was killed by House Armed Services Committee. But one new 160-unit apartment has been taken over ff Civil Defens- Administration. Some Proposals Two bills lust introduced in Congress may fjffer some hope for relieving the space situation. One is a proposal by GSA Administrator Jess Larson, presented to •9- the Senate by Sen. John L. McClellan of Arkansas, to move 50,000 government jobs out of Washington within the next two years. This is intended to decentralize government offices all over the country, instead of tr%'ing to disperse them around Washington. The second is a proposal by Rep. James Trimble of Arkansa.s It would permit the government to acquire space just as a private .. homeowner now buys his house on '•' the installment plan. Private capital would build the offices to government specifications. The governmen would lease the offices to government specifications. The government would lease for 15 to 25 years, at the end of which time it would be given title. At present the government owns 29 million square feet of space in Washington. This includes four World War I and 49 World War II temporary build- 0 ings with six million square feet of space .-.nd 31,000 employes. Under the McClellan bill, all the "tempos" would have to be torn ( down. The government now 600,000 square feet of Washington, for which • $2,900,000 a year rent. World War il, leased 7,000.000 rents 2.- space in it pays During the government square feet of space for which it paid $6,000,000 a year rent. These government rentals have advanced from a little under 85 cents a foot to nearly $1.10 today. Insurance Firms Buy Joppa Bonds By Associated Press WASHINGTON, Jijne 27. — The Security and Exchange Commission yesterday authorized Electric * Energy, Inc., of Joppa, 111., to issue and sell up to $100,000,000 of three per cent first mortgage sinking fund bonds. The Metropolitan Life Insurance Company and the Prudential Insurance Company of America were announced as purchasers of the bonds.

Betty Hutton Has Operation on Vocal Cords By Associated Pres^ HOLLyWOOD, June 27. — The noisy, harum-scarum, slam-bang Betty llutton you see on the sci-ecn is, in reality, the quiet type at home. Oh yo.s she is! She's as quite as a mouse. Tliorc's a reason. Betty can't talk because she's recuperating from an operation for corns on her vocal cords. She's been yelling so loudly for so many years that the cords acquired some nodes in the process of vibrating. (Nodes arc knotty growths, not unlike corns.) Betty's two small children, Lind. say and Candice, are in the enviable spot of having a mother who is speechless, temporarily at least. Writing instructions for them on a slate wouldn't help because they're too small to read.

Josephine Gets Mohican Haircut By Associated Press LOS ANGELES, June 27. — Seventeen - year - old Josephine Amaya has been scalped by her sister, Velia, 14. It was an amicable scalping. In fact, it was Josephine's idea. She wanted a Mohican haircut, like some of the 'teen-age boys are wearing here this summer. Velia obliged and did a very good job. Josephine is slaved bald except for a three-inch wide strip of hair that extends from her forehead to the back'of her neck. Il.'s exactly the same kind of haircut 12-year-old Leon Kwalwasser got recently to revive a hirsute fashion once used by the Mohican Indians. Ot course, as a concession to feminine vanity, Josephine has a pigtail that hangs below the shoulder line, permitting a bow ribbon, if wanted. Josephine says she doesn't expect her girl friends to follow suit "because they're afraid they couldn't go any place with, their boy friends." Josephine says she doesn't have any BF's, so she doesn't care. LEGAL NOTICES TAX PURCHASER'S NOTICE TO: Crete Clark, John C. Clark, Carroll E. Clark, Mamie ,C.
