8 THE OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, October 19, 1961 Army Calculating Machines Need To Study Arithmetic WASHINGTON (AP) - The General Accounting Office said today miscalculations by both human and electronic brains were partly responsible for what it called a multimillion-dollar excess cost of military aid to the Far East. The GAO, which serves as a watchdog over government spending, said it had come to this conclusion after investigating nearly Weilsville News UNICEF Drive To Be I half a billion dollars worth of spare parts accumulating in Asian warehouses and at'the Army's big supply and inventory depot in Japan. j In its report lo Congress, the GAO said its survey resulted in potential savings of about $23f million in excess or useless spare parts.

' ' In today's report, GAO accountants said the depot in Japan last year had "discovered" unrecorded material valued at $58 milion in making its "first complete inventory ever taken" of military aid stocks. Meanwhile, the GAO said, additional supplies of the ordnance equipment had been ordered. The alleged error was attributed by the GAO to depot officials. Their electronic calculating machine servants, however, were held accountable for errors in, simple arithmetic that added to what the GAO called a vast over- j supply of items at the depot and to the cost of foreign aid. In one instance a machine was supposed to record the issue of 46 items, not specified in the report. But the machine reported the issue of 111,146. In another verified instance, the GAO said, the machine recorded the issue of 111,129 items to foreign countries, when the actual number was only 29. The GAO said replacements for the items, which were never issued anyway, were ordered at a cost of $177,990. The GAO reported that this excessive accumulation of stocks in some places had been accompanied by shortages elsewhere, hurt- ng the military aid program.

WALTER ULBRICHT Expect Ulbricht To Be Fired By MICHAEL GOLDSMITH BERLIN (AP) - Officials and commentators in West Berlin speculated today that Moscow may soon fire its East German puppet, Walter Ulbricht. There was widespread belief that East Germany's spade- bearded chief of state would disappear from the scene in an effort to make direct negotiations with the East German regime more palatable to the West. Soviet Premier Khrushchev dealt Ulbricht a bitter blow in his Kremlin speech Tuesday by abandoning the Dec. 31 deadline he had set for signing a peace treaty with East Germany. Ulbricht has serious difficulties within his own party as a result of the wall of concrete and barbed wire he threw across Berlin in August. East German papers admit more and more openly that there is vigorous opposition to the wall and to the atmosphere of Stalinist oppression in East Germany.
