WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17, 1949 BLYTHEVnXE (ARK.) COUKICT KIWI PACK THRU THC NATION TODAY— Senate Delays Appropriations Government Agencies Snarled for Lack Of Money to Spend BT Jimrt Mil-low WASHINGTON, Aug. 11. (f, — Tlie Senate, which talks so much it can't get Us work done on time. is snarling up the government again. Tiit only way the government can run at &U Ls on money voted by House and Serial* for the various departments and agencies. The government does on » fiscal year basis, with the fiscal yenr beginning on July 1 and end- Ing the next June 30, Since Congress begins each regu- . iar year's Job early in January, It's I supposed lo gets Us appropriating finished before the .fiscal year begins July 1. A lot ol Ttorlt goes into the appropriating. All the government agencies and departments tell Con- gce-w early In January how much they'll need to run on for another fiscal year. Then the appropriations committees of House and Senate hold long hearing where the department hrtdn are questioned about the mon»y they ask lor. Hans* Aeic Quickly The committee*' Job Is to be sure the money ia needed and lo try to cut down the amount asked for. When the committees finish, they jKlid appropriations bills one after another up to the full House and Senate to be voted on. Each bill covers the money needs of one department or a number of departments and agencies. This year the House had finished up Us hearings, drawn up Its bills, and voted on them all before the laster vacation began. Not the Senate. With its tongue wagging day In and out, It droned away time. July I, the beginning of the ne» r fiscal year, edged close. A batch of departments still didn't have the money they needed to do business in the fiscal year. June 30 arrived. The Senate still hadn't voted appropriations for a •vbig chunk of the government. ** Since It was now June 30, how were the agencies going to do business or spend money which Congress hadn't voted them? To tide them over the emergency, Home, and Senate voted them enough money to keep on doing business until July 31. by which time, it was hoped, the Senate could clean up its appropriations. But July 31 came and the Senate still was far behind schedule. Once more both houses agreed to let the \mapproprlated-for government de- DREAMS OF MUSIC FROM WHEELCHAIR—Twelve-year-old Sammy Perry is aided by his mother, Mrs. Marion Kwasiburski, as he tries to play the violin at Philadelphia, Pa.
