XLV—NO. 61 Bljthtvill* Dally New* Blvtherill* Oourttr Herald pl Valley Levitt BIATHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, THURSDAY, JUNE t, 1949 TWENTY PAGES SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS Economy Moves Termed Needed *ln Washington Senate Committee Talks About Cutting Costs in Government By Edwin B. Haaklnson WASHINGTON, June 2—(fl>»— Senator Bridges (E-NH), one of the leaders of the current economy drive, branded as "ridiculous" today a suggestion that Congressmen tak a 5 per cent pay cut to help cut government costs. At the same time Bridges agreed with Senator McCarthy (R-Wis) that Congress should remain In session "until Christmas, if necessary" to consider $3,000,000,000 of savings in government costs proposed by former President Hoover. Bridges, former chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, testified before the senate expenditures committee In support of a resolution that would direct President Truman to balance the budget. "It Is my sincere conviction that the need for economy la greater today than at any time I have been a member of the United States Senate," he said. He said Congress can do one of four things—"increase taxes, encourage deficit financing, simply drift along with the tide, or cut k expenditures to the level of estl- * mated revenues." "There is not a department or agency—with proper management at the top—that could not absorb some small percentage cut without impairing efficiency' or cutting salaries," Bridges said. Chairman McClellan (D-ArlO of the expenditures committee considering the economy proposals broke in to say no witness had urged such economy moves as "a pay reduction." Bridges said press reports indicate that senator Tydings (D-Mcl), author of another proposal for cutting government costs, has suggested congressmen take a five per cent pay cut. "I disagree with Senator Tydings," Bridges said emphatically. "I think It's ridiculous to ask that Congress take a five percent cut in salaries. The cost of Congress is a very minor Item and beside the point." ., Other Wayi To Trim Expense* McClellan said Tydings may have been misunderstood—*hat his suggestions was that corfgress: should reduce, its own costs five per cent. McClellan said this could be done without cutting salaries. McCarthy noted that the commission on government reorganization under "former President Hoov- )t er had made scores of suggestions for "cleaning house and doing away with the waste and debris" In present overlapping government agencies. He asked Bridges if he thought Congress .should stay in session— instead of adjourning next month— until all the Hoover proposals have been considered. "I do," Bridges replied. Earlier, Frederick J. Lawton, as- «istant director of the budget, told McClellan that no revised estimates of government income and spending for the next fiscal year are available. McClellan pointed out that the budget estimates were made last December 15 and conditions have changed considerably. He noted the estimates indicate a deficit of nearly J900.000.000 with revenues estimated at nearly $41.000,000,000 and spending Just under $42,000,000,000. Lawton said that until congress completes work on all appropriations and upon President Truman's suggestions for $4,000,000.000 in new taxes and higher postal rates, no Sec ECONOMY on Pag 5 Leachville Superintendent Accepts New School Post J.

The funds are expected to arrlvi here In a few days. City Clerk W. I. Malln said thi funds received by the city probabl; would go Into either the genera fund or the street funds. The county probably will receive a similar amount, since half of the total goes to cities and the other half to counties. A 1949 act limits maximum distribution to counties or cities to $1.600.000.

Senator Hurls Laxity Charge In Atomic Probe Hickenlooper Insists AEC Free With Access To Data on Secrets By Oliver W. DeWolf WASHINGTON, June 2— (AP)—Senator Hickenlooper (H-Iowa) accused the Atomic Energy Commission today of lotting 3,280 persons have access to atomic information, or work around secret projects, without a Cull FBI check first on their loyalty. He called tin's violating the ,omic energy law v/ith "bran effrontery." Htckenlooper said the commission anted "emergency clearance" 'Ithoul full Inve.sliatlon) to res- Icted dnta or restricted area.*; fn M7 to 818 persons, fn 1M8 to 2,103 id lias granted 35D thus far In 14!).

Mltenthal Defends Decisions "Our Judgment was neither arblt- ary or whimsical," Lilienthal said. 'We believe It to have been sound.'* Hickenlooper raked this Issue vhen the Senate-House atomic committee went Into Its second day of icnrlngs on his charges of "incredible mismanagement" in AEC affairs. He demands that Lilienthal be fired, Lilienthal declared that all persons had some kind of "screening" by the FBI before being-granted an emergency clearance.

Individual men want It. Nations want it. The world wants it. And that is why. perhaps, men, nations and the world are all nervous, touchy, irritable. They all have the jitters— emotional as well as political and financial jitters. Every per.son and every group wants to feel -safe from life's multiple disasters. It Is a.s true of a railroad porter in Omaha as it Is of a Wall Street broker or that man in the Kremlin. The broker looks under his bcrt to .see if a - Communist is' lurking there. Joe Stalin looks to see If a capitalist spy Is hiding under his crimson couch cover. The lover worries whether his true love will stay truo to him. The poor man worries whether his Job will last. The rich man worries vhcM>-r h» can hold his relies, and 38 JOB | he thinks th* m*seu arc leagued l a plot to lake his money. And all of them worry whether they can keep their youth, their beauty, their strength or their teeth—and none of them can. Security isn't a goal of Just the classes or the mosses. It is the goa} of all. Tiie search for security Is mankind's oldest quest, his eldest aream. He has sought it since he was exiled from the Garden of Eden. Security an Odd Thing*, Rut security U an odd thing. The faster you chase It the faster It flies from you. The more you want to be secure, th'j more insecure you feel. For security to the average man means Keeping what he haj- or getting what he hasn't. He wants to make himself a changeless Island In a world of change. And that Is rather hard to do on a globe where men are bom, grow old and die. Death is the final negation ol ti-<! hope for security on earth Heaven—and «U races pnf to leaven of some kind—may be the positive answer. For this answer we must wait and yearn—and earn, If we are wise. The one sure thing IB there's no security while you're alive. And there never has been. Therefore It Is foolish to expect It. Kings and clowns lose their crowns or their sense of humor. And disease at la.st will take a lady In the highest castle as surely as It does the poorest workwom woman In the lowest hovel. War and famine, these have been always with us, loo, twin nightmares that ruin our longs dream of peace and plenty. Time l« Slop Runntnr The earth, our wonderland, news its beauty.

He built himself a subterranean shelter and stocked it with food enough to la.st him and his family for years. Is that security? If It Is, he doesn't feel It. I know of a woman who also was afraid of the atom bomb. Figuring ihat New York would be a prlmruy target in the event of another war, she bought a house In New Mexico. Then she learned it was'near Los Alamos, a capital of American atom bomb secrets. She moved back and bought a home in Long Island. No sooner was she settled In It than she discovered that in nearby Biookhavcn was another government atomic power laboratory. So she came to this conclusion: "To hell with the atom bomb It Is part of our living, so 111 face It." And she has. She hasn't found security. Bui she has tame! a finer Defense witness today said Green h;ui a blackjack In his hand and was swinging it at Dnrrcll when the fatal shot was fired. One wltne.ss, V. W. Bracken of Rector, said Green's blows hit Ogles on the shoulder and head. Bracken later said Gvcen threatened to kill Ogles during the fight. Green wns shot with his own gun after Darrell Ogles had wrc.stcd it from him. Joiner, according to early testimony, lost his gun to Leon In a scuffle after firing one shot which wounded Durrcll. Leon also is accused with clubbing Joiner with the gun. Defense Attorney Marcu.s Feitz of Jonesboro and W.
