" to 10 p. m. and Sunday 2 to 10 p. rn, Orjranizcr» of this amazing war baby wore two almost unheard-of brothers: Murray Garsoon and Hunry Ganmon, Murray Garason first become faintly known in Washington whan ho served In the Laboi Department under Hoover's 'Secretary of Labor, William Nuckela Doak, He had nn FBI record as a former associate of Dutch Schultz and Owney while his brother Henry was once chiii'ifod by tho Treasury with ac- coptlni; " £5,000 brlbo while nerving as a revenue agent. Although acquitted by n. Jury, Garsson was dla- ohurRod from tho Treasury. Working with the Garsson brothers wns onu Joseph Freeman, who operated the WiitihinKton ofllce of the Erlo Basin Company, It was his job to take tho generals and- the colonels of the Wai- Department out to dinner, and to dnnce with, Lhelr wives. Ho did both to pnrfootlon. One diner cornme'mor- atlnff an E-uwurcl to Erlo coat $16,-! 000—all p«.id for by the tax payer. .enough, Homo of Freeman's checks, to the tune of $46,000, wore cashed by Snm Beard, famous Washington Knmblcr, Some people uro wondc:-infr whether letting (t man win In n gambling was one way the Erlo Company helped out its friends In high llUCG!!, Another member of tho Company's Htarf was Louis Sarclas, whoso real name was Suroluchoua, and who served In the Army only 8lx weeks, after which Congressman "Yleehol" Mny got him out on a medical dUchurgc.

Shortly before his transfer, Gen, English had suddenly -discovered an 18-month-old Jotter in' Army flics, which, If he hod seen earlier, might have prevented the war-contract award to Ere Basin. The lotto.f was from Col, A. N. Kuhn of the Now York office of Chemical Warfare, quoting: Louis Sojs'nl of the Scfral Lock Company as saylnj,' the Erie Bs.flin Company was not a subsidiary of Segal. Earlier, when the Garsson brothers first contacted the War Department, they claimed to bo a subsidiary of ScRnl Lock company. This letter was dated Feb. 23, 3fM2, but. G-encral English did not discover it until the end of 19-1 Shortly after, discovering- it, he was transferred to Omaha. "Yicehel'.V Lumber How the Chairman of the Military Affairs Committee happened to tic up with these war contractors Is secret. However, his tics with them went Into many ramifications, The Congressman, for instance, received -"expense-money" from the Garssons in connection with a lumber mUl they purchased In Kentucky, The CJarssons gave their friend a check for $28,000 for the purchase ;of the Cumberland Lumber Company in Pikeville, Ky, May has been able to show investigators canceled checks for about J2.1.0CO. These canceled checks, indicate that ho -turned that amount of money over to the original owners or the lumber company. The remaining $4,000 he kept. This, he informed investigators, was t-a reimburse him for travel Und other expense. Just how tho Congressman from Kentucky could spend $4,000 for using his Influence with the-War Department, Thus, indirectly,. the Congressman's .$4,000 of "expense and travel money" camo from Gov- ornmcn-t contracts, ... It is against the law and a criminal offense for a member of 1 ' Congress to receive a fee for using his influence in connection with n Government contract,- or .any-other typo of lobbying.

She had writ-ten: "I understand President Truman has appointed you to witness tho atomic bomb experiment on those ships over there in the Pacific. -I would rather the President had appointed a Democrat." The GOP Senator blotted the letter to the Cambridge woman and remarked: • "I'm getting BO important since coming to Washington, that my constituents are afraid to expose me t-o -radioactivity."
