3 MAR 51985 Mar. 5, 1985 ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH 53 Boeing Billed U.S. For Campaign Gifts fV'Y' CI "1.11 vv audit agency were made available to The Associated Press. They show that Boeing, the Seattle-based aerospace giant, gave $61,075 in 1982 to political candidates of both parties, many of them members of the Washington State Senate and House.

In all, the Pentagon is questioning $350,729 in "public relations" costs charged to defense contracts by Boeing's corporate headquarters and its aerospace division during 1 982. The charges include the costs of displays, exhibits, entertainment, banquets, receptions, contributions, awards and presentations, according to the audit agency's documents. Unlike federal law, Washington State law does not prohibit direct, corporate contributions to political candidates or causes. The documents do not disclose any direct Boeing contributions to candidates for federal office. The Pentagon's audit agency says Boeing executives define spending on public relations as "all costs incurred in the interest of public and community relations." And Boeing also includes in this definition "support or opposition to proposed state, local or federal legislation." "Difficulties arise with the contractor's definition of PR because many of the activities contained therein can also be defined as unallowable political contributions, charitable donations, advertising and entertainment," the audit agency told Congress last year, without naming Boeing as the contractor in question.

Carr, the Boeing spokesman, said many of the charges probably would be thrown out by the Pentagon. Those disallowed costs will then "get spread like peanut butter across the entire costs of Boeing (commercial) operations," Carr said. Boeing employs about 93,000 people nationwide. The company had $4.3 billion in military sales last year, up more than $800 million from 1983. WASHINGTON (AP) The Boeing Co.

billed the taxpayers for at least $126,847 in political contributions in 1982, adding the cost to the price of weapons systems that it built for the Pentagon. Defense Department auditors called the charges "questionable" and "unallowable," and the department has refused to reimburse the contractor. Rep. Fortney Stark, said, "Charging the taxpayer for political contributions is criminal and it ought to be treated that way." The charges are among $14.9 million in bills submitted by selected defense contractors that have been challenged by the Defense Contract Audit Agency, the House Government Operations Committee has been told. "It's tough to be shocked at waste in weapons programs any more, but these billings go beyond impropriety," Stark said of Boeing's bills for political contributions.

contractors either take us for fools or they're incapable of understanding what constitutes a legitimate bill. If the Pentagon won't take real action to stop this, I'm willing to bet Congress and the IRS will." Stark plans to introduce legislation this week to prohibit defense contractors from claiming certain public relations expenses as deductions in figuring their federal income taxes. -A Boeing spokesman, Harold Carr, confirmed the charges listed by the auditors. Such expenses are billed to the government routinely as part of the company's cost of doing business, he said. "We are in the process now of going into negotiations on the 1982 accounts," Carr said.

"I think the important thing is that it's part of the usual process. Nobody's paid anything on this." Documents from the Pentagon's Farmhouse Blaze Picknickers may have set a fire that destroyed an 80-year-old farmhouse in St. Charles County late Sunday night, a spokesman for the Sheriff's Department said. Investigators John found packages of hot dogs and marshmallows near the vacant house at 2455 Hackman Road. The house was by Dan Lewis of St.

Charles County. i.C I V. fiitsral rcotices STOESSEL See Reed State Department Lifts Order Against Talking To Reporter of public diplomacy, said in response to an inquiry. Chain said he had acted on his own in reversing the ban on Gelb. "I did what I did more in sorrow than in anger," Chain said.

The article that set off the incident was published Feb. 13. It dealt with U.S. contingency plans for placing nuclear weapons in Canada, Iceland, Bermuda and Puerto Rico. Secretary of State George P.

Shultz endorsed the ban on Gelb last week. While Gelb was gathering information from the State Department for the article, Shultz had asked the Times not to publish it An unidentified White House official was quoted in the newspaper Sunday as saying President Ronald Reagan's national security adviser, Robert C. McFarlane, had directed the State Department to cooperate with Gelb. WASHINGTON (AP) The direc-tor of the State Department's Bureau ofPolitico-Military Affairs has rescinded an order to his staff not to talk to a New York Times reporter. But the director, Lt.

Gen. John T. Chain said Monday that he was still convinced that the reporter, Leslie H. Gelb, had damaged U.S. national security by publishing classified information.

He urged the press to help solve the problem of "leaks." Chain also removed a sign in the bureau's waiting room that said Gelb's picture had been removed from the wall "for cause." But the photograph of Gelb, who was director of the bureau during President Jimmy Carter's administration, did not reappear. "He hasn't said whether it is going td back up or not," Judith T.

Funeral The company has 85 distributors in Missouri 17 in Kansas City, 25 in St. Louis and 43 elsewhere in the state. Everest Jennings corrected the flaw last year, the attorney general said in a news release. "The problem, though," Webster said, "involves the chairs manufactured from 1978 through 1983. There are people using these chairs that are totally unaware of the danger." Curt Wright, manager of product safety for Everest Jennings, said he was unsure how many chairs were manufactured in that time or how much a recall would cost.

7JEFFERS0N CITY (UPI) Attorney General William Webster has filed suit against the nation's largest maker of motorized wheelchairs, seeking the recall of wheelchairs manufactured by the company between 1978 and 1983. Everest Jennings with headquarters in Los Angeles, is a major manufacturer of health care products, Webster said. The suit was filed Monday in Boone County Circuit Court. It says the wheelchairs have a flawed design, which causes the armature shaft to break, resulting in a loss of control of the chair. STRONG (.
