M«ni?ivne*« King May When ConKi-ossman May of Kentucky piously beat ms breast on the floor of the House and proclaimed bin jtront patriotism and complete Innonuence roRfti'dlnK war contracts, he failed to tell his gullible colleagues about another deal In which he also tried to make Home money. It so happens that Congressman May IH president of the Greenbriar Manganese Mining Co.," an outfit which has acquired 7,000 acres of West Virginia tow-grade rnangancnc land. Manganese is essential to the smelting of steel, but the deposits found in this country are so poor that Army-Navy experts say it is essential for this country to have a stockpile Of imported manganese on hand in case of war, They say we cannot risk helnK cut off from foreign mun- franeuc by submarine, .Congressman May. however, has not always put the Interests of his country ahead of the Interests of his company in respect to manganese. Once, prior to the war, when the Navy won planning to accumulate a manganese stockpile, naval of- rieerst accused the gentleman from Kentucky of pressuring them to reduce the specifications for manganese to such a low quality that poor'- grade domestic manganese could be sold to the Navy, instead of high-grade Imported manganese. Thin meant, of course, that Mr. May's Gfccnbrler Manganese Co, would have a chance to sell to the Navy, But it also meant, In the vigorous opinion -J.E naval and Bureau of Mines experts, that the quality of manganese would not be high enough to produce the hlgh- tcst steel so necessary to U. S, tmUlcHhlps. Mny Out VVur Contract Again. In October, 1030, the procurement division of the Treasury awarded a S1SO.COO contract to May'fi Greenbt'lor company for manganese, under very mysterious circumstances. His company was not the lowest bidder, did not put up u performance bond, and did not have any funds with which to operate. An ollleliil said that they planned to go lo the RFC and borrow the money. It so happened that May had introduced the Strategic Minerals Bill under which manganese was to hi! stockpiled. When he was accused of bringing Influence to help his company. I however, the Congressman Issued 1 11 pious denial, and said his company would not go through with the contract. Last chapter In the story of May's groat patriotism occurred quite recently when a new postwar bill wan before Congress to permit the Army and Navy to stockpile essential materials Incase of another war. This bill provided that manganese could be Im- pyrted by tho Army and Navy without paying a tariff. Suddenly, however, Congressman May, head of the Croenbrlur Manganese Co.. had tho bill withdrawn from tho floor of the House after It had already been agreed to by committee.') of both the House and Senate. Ho then proceeded to knock out tho provlalon that Army- Navy manganese could bo imported duty free. Naturally, Army-Navy payment of a tariff on manganeseo would help domestic manganese producers, of which Mr. May is one. Naturally tho American taxpayer, whom Mr. May Is supposed lo represent, thereby stood a greater chance of having money wasted. Mr. May, however, voted not for the public but for hitt pockethook. Mny'H War Colleague Murray duration, one of the war- profiteering brothers who enticed Congressman May —some say ho wasn't hard to entice — Into godfathering tho Uric Basin war contracts, has a unique history. Entirely aside from his FBI rac- or<l of association with gangster Dutch Sennit/., Murray Garsson svent out to Hollywood when ho was Assistant Secretary of Labor under Hoover. Hurray had dabbled In tho movies in New York, and conceived the Idea fo staging a man hunt to scare alien actors who had overstayed their visitors' vlnas. Some of the alien actors hurriedly headed for Mexican and Canadian borders. Others, wiser, put matters In the hands of their Hollywood employers. Result: Murray Garsson deported no one. Exit when he left Hollywood his daughter had a S250-a-wock contract with Motro-Goldwyn-Maycr, phis an auto. And after one year had expired, 20th Century-Fox gave her another contract, together with an additional contract for a hus- hnnd she had acquired in tho In- lorlm. Garsuon's next, appearance on the ;iacred soil of Hollywood was several years later when lie came In the guise of an investigator for u House committee lo investigate bondholders, chalrmanned by Representative Adolph Sahath of Chicago. Colchester, Conn., July "—The former Mlso Eva Miskln of Belgium got up this morning, looked out over the peaceful Connecticut countryside, and thanked God "he was frco from UlC h °T"' S of the concentration camp where she spent two yours.

Only once in the nn.gos and pages of debate—paid for bv tho taxpayers—did he pull a real laugh. "I am thinking about my children and grandchildren," O'Daniel thundered in reply to a question from Senator Francis Myers of Pennsylvania. "I am thinking about the Senator's children and grandchildren and everyone else's children and grandchildren. I am thinking about unborn generations." "I cannot boast about my grandchildren," .corrected Senator Myers. "They will come along," rejoined Pappy. "That is another thing that OPA cannot stop."
