Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washbun- Public Salaries Competitive, Too New Role for Japan Little Rock dispatch yesterday disclosed that the legislature's Joint Budget Committee is considering Governor-Elect Sid Mc- I •* Math's request that the salaries i of the Commissioner of Revenues, State Highway Director, and Commissioner of Kducation, be increased to $7,500 a year. And that figure is no more than is absolutely necessary. Mr. Mc; Math told us at the Winter meel- ; ing of the Associated Press in Little Rock Sunday, November 28, } that he is having a good deal of trouble finding competent men who ! are willing to serve in key state ', offices at $5,000 and $0,000 a year. '* He told about the case of Dean ( Morley. scheduled to be the next Commissioner o£ Revenues. Mr. Morley gets $8,500 a year as FBI I chief in Arkansas. Furthermore, "'.• he has served 12 years with the : federal bureau, needs only eight ': more to earn retirement status. • The competence of Mr. Morley ; is well known. But you aren't going •:' to get, or hold, competent men in i: stale office unless salaries are I competitive—competitive not only *' with federal salaries but also pri- *vate pay schedules.

'PRICE: Sc- ipy Probe Turns By DOUGLAS B. CORNELL Washington, Dec. 10 Congression al spy investigators today got a story that the now famous pump kin papers lay hidden for 10 years c in tne dnmo waiter shaft of ilirooklyn house. 1 It was related by Nathan L. Lavine, Brooklyn lawyer and nephew mrs. Whutaker Chambers. Chambers, confessed courier i'oi a Communist spy ring ot the 1930s produced the papers last week from a more, recent hiding place—a hollowed pumpkin on his Maryland farm. He identiticd them as micro film copies of secret government documents slipped to the Red spies. In the furore since, a federal grand jury in New \ork has re sumed an inquiry into the whole affair and the justice department ha sdemandcd that the House Un- True to Spirit of Christmas Governor-Elect McMath has American Activities committee stood firm on this point, and he is correct. How can you expect any relief from the network of federal agencies unless the state governments shoulder some ol tne responsibility? And how can a competent state governmet be put together to assume that responsibility unless it has adequately-paid department ticads? drop public publicity about it while law enforcement officers get in their work. The committee has refused to do that. Levinc was called to the committee's witness chair against this background of immediate develop rncnls: I seem to have made n correct '.«». appraisal of American diplomatic- military intentions in the Far East.

The exact cause of the explosions had not been determined but several workers reported they had smelled gas in the building. The explosions pulveri/ed concrete and twisted and ripped heavy steel.

Mayor Lyle urown ed the following statement concerning the official census report received this week and which was completed a couple of weeks ago: "The officiial certification for the census of Hope has been received from Washington.

This increase would have been losl for the next three years except for the taking of this census. When the preliminary figure was released, considerable disappointment was expressed because it did not show the Cily to have a population of 10,000.A survey was immediately marie to determine whether any substantial error was committed, by the census takers. II was our conclusion that the entire city was well canvassed, and if any persons were overlooked Ihe total number was negligible. We also made comparison with those who took an independent census in compiling the new directory of the City of Hope. The new directory will list 10,127 persons. Thc difference between this i'ij.;ure and the official census is due lo the fact that the compilors nf the City directory went beyond the City limits in all direction:; took in residents all around outer edges.

It is the opinion of those who supervised the taking of the census' for the City directory that the figure released by the Bureau of the Census is substantially correct. Everything reasonably possible has been done to determine: the correctness of the new census and it is my opinion that the official figure i's as nearly correct as il is possible lo obtain. Although we are disappointed thai we have not obtained a population of 10,000. I think the taking ot the census is justified for two reasons. First, it will increase our revenues by approximately $8,000 during the next H years. Second, we know what will have to bo done in order to reach the goal of 10,000 when the official census of the City is taken in 11)50."
