TUESDAC, MAY 12, 1942 —— • — . EDSONIN WASHINGTON BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THUD Pegrl Harbor: Japs Can't Keep a Good Ship Down I BY PETER EUSON Courier News Washington Correspondent This is the craziest country. That's what makes it so wonderful, but at the same time so exasperating and oh, so funny. Not the uni'imniest thing in Washington these days Is th? rip- snortin' rampage of that roister- ous rivennan, the Hon. Kenneth McKellar, Memphian and senior senator from Tennessee. Senator McKellar is out to save the country by cutting expenses, a noble ambition it' there ever was one, but the way Kenneth goes at the job is something to behold. His methods are those of a surgeon going into an operating room blindfolded, a doctor prescribing amputation at the hip for a .sprained ankle, a veterinarian applying his horse pistol to relieve pain. Doctor McKellar applies his cures to patients that are, sound of health and need no treatment, as well as incurables that really need the mercy death treatment. There is, for instance, an unheralded outfit in your government called the Export-Bank of Washington. Its function is to finance and facilitate the exchange of commodities between the U. S. and foreign countries, and to as- f sist in'developing th? resources and stabilizing the economies of countries in the western hemisphere. It functions very quietly, has only a small staff, hires no publicity agent, It is on? of the very few government agencies which turns back into the Treasury more money than it spends. Its profits are actually over the S12 million dollar mark. Its loans have represented an investment of more than $700 million, yet not one of them is in arrears and none ever has been defaulted. OFF WITH ITS HEAD In addition. Export-Import Bank has been of material aid in the war effort, in financing the production and purchase of many critical materials—rubber, -sugar, tin, copper,and the like. The expenses of this bank have been running somwhnt over $100,000 a year, but because of the war emergency, they were estimated for the coming fiscal year at $207.000 and legislation appropriating ^h place to Nina Lengucre. vilu'r members of the class arc Robert Ksirl Adkins.

It so happens that the people who run Export-Import aren't worried. They say the appropriation will be put back when the bill goes into conference to .reconcile differences between the Senate and House versions. Senator McKellar has been seen, presumably, the bank's importance has been explained to him. and he has promised to be good.

But consider what the effect of this grandstand politicing may be in foreign countries. There, the word is spred that the Senate has killed the Export-Import Bank.
