It will even have greater repercussions than the favors done by PEARSON Sherman Adams for Bernard Golfine in return fur an Oriental rug and a vicuna coat. For the same Harris committee; w h i c h raised its rye brows over these giveaways now* wants to lease away the money.

The Harris c o m m i t t e e . named for chairman Orcn Harris of El Dorado, Ark., is the House Interstate and Foreign Commerce Committee, and it proposes to put the management of the communi rations satellite in the hands of the giant American Tele phone and Telegraph monop nly, phis a group of other communications companies.

Thc were rot even impressed when Gen. David Sarnoff head of the Radio Corporation of America, and one of the communications moguls who would cooperate in operating the new satellite, agreed cm phatically with Bob Kennedy. Chief reason for the Harris committee's pro-monopoly attitude is an adroit lobbying move which not many of the congressmen will talk about.

I\ THE FILES of the Jus- lice Department is one of the most amazing dossiers on monopoly ever collected in government history. It pertains to the giant telephone company, and is one reason why Bobby Kennedy spoke out against more A T T monopoly. Justice files show that A T T has profited from m o r e government contacts and contracts than perhaps any other company, and at the same time it has been involved in serious antitrust litigation. Its contracts include $2,- ·100.000,000 for building the SAGE alert system across the northern part of the United States. The contract was considered so lopsided t h a t Ike's comptroller general Joseph Campbell ruled it out of order but the Pentagon finally prevailed.
