Inside Washington SOtONS VETO IKFS 'IKM WASHINQTOH — President Stttn- howet't plea for authority to veto specific items in appropriations bills, which he termed "an effective tool for economy," is falling on deaf ears on Capitol Hill. It may be effective economy from the President's, standpoint but members of Congre«* Strongly teav that Mr. Eisenhower would use the Item veto on their pet projects rho chief executive broached his plan during a telephone speech to New Jersey Re- puolicans recently. Later resigning Treasury Secretary George M. Humphrey and the budget Director, Percival F. Brundage, went to bat for the proposal before a House judiciary subcommittee. Symptomatic of congressional coolness to the idea was the fact that only twe 'mem- ben of'the seven-man subcommittee showed up tor the hearings and both of then* 1 'condemned the suggestion. Lawmakers won't say it publicly they know that one of,the targets of * ideritlal item veto would be the Rivers ar Harbors bill, known as the "pork barrel** bill/, 1 which embraces scores of small local construction projects. :'• •• • IRRADIATED RATIONS—The Army has assured Congress It will not risk feeding "fatloiit" te soldiers until tests prove conclusively that irradiated foods are safe to eat. Tha* wa* the upshot of testimony in which Pentagon officials described as "exaggerated" a cutllshed report that the Army is ready to start serving such foods to troops to show the practicality of a new preservation process. Irradiation involves atomic sterilization and pasteurization of food which might make it possible to keep commonplace foods on shelve* for years without spoiling.
