MONDAY, JUNE 8, 1949 (ARK.) COURIER NFWS PARE SEVEN ' THE NATION TODAY Marlow Finds That Congress Often Talks One Way and Then Votes to Do the Very Opposite BIT Ja»e« Martow WASHINGTON, June 6. W)—Maybe it's my arithmetic that's bad but you can't alwayi m»k* it add up: What members of Congress say and what they do. Take economy, for instance. Ever since January they've been talking of cutttnf government expenses. Now it's June. They've not cut yet. I'm beginning to wonder whether they'll cut at all this year. Bf Nobldy'* talked more about it* • _—_ _ than the senators. But when It came to doing something about it, they voted almost all the way down the line to spend more money than the House. Example: For the treasury and post office department.-;—House, «3,072^njC3; the Senate, $3.113,088.503, or $40,250,600 more. Labor Department and Federal Security Agency—House, 12,211,794,- OB5; the Senate, $2.409.827,285, or $l».033,iao more. Agriculture Department— House, *701.122.079; the Senate, $123,083.249, or t21.Ml.170 more. River, Harbors and Waterway Development—House, $583.292,270; the Senate, $751,440.690, or $158,148,420 more. Slate. Justice and Commerce Department—House. SC84.616.102; Ihe Senate, $871.782281. a cut by the Senate of $12.833.821. This last one was the only place where the Senate, in voting money to rim the government another year, voted Itfs than the House. Since both houses cume up with different figures, none of the figures is final. Still Muit Set Final Figure* Both houses now must work out a compromise on their differences and probably will agree on a sum about midway between Senate and House desires. At one point Senator Douglas. II- l^iois Democrat, challenged the other senators to make good on their constant talk about economy. He was drowned out with votes against him. This was on the money the Senate was going to vote for river, harbors and waterway development. That's a favorite item with members of Congress every year. It means money spent back in their districts where the homefolks can see it. Senator Tydings. Maryland Democrat, says he is disturbed by the government's big expense. He has suggested that Confess even cut its own salary by five per cent. That suggestion is considered ridiculous by Senator Bridges. New Hampshire Republican and one of the leaders of the economy talk, but he says Congress ought to stay in session till It finds some way of cutting government expenses. Tome Votea fer Vet's Pemioi In ths midst of the increasing talk about economy, the HOU.W late last week approved a pension bill for war veterans. -• The fact that veterans are vers numerous and can be a big factor in elections may have nothing to do Czech Official Blasts Police Dictatorship BERLIN, June 8—M>j—The hl»h- est ranking Czech representative in Berlin quit his job arid fled today. He declared he no longer could stomach what he called "a corrupt police dictatorship." Dr. Bedrlch Bruegel, acting chief of the Czech military mission followed his former superior, Brig. Sen, Fraiulsek Dastich, into exile. Bruegel gave American authorities a copy of the letUr of resignation he .stnt to Czech Deputy Foreign Minister Arthur London on May 26 In which he accused his government of tolerating "various intelligence services in Western Germany" and setting up a police state at home. Dastlch fled eight month* ago. Six members of the 10-man Cwch mission in existence at the tune of (he Communist coup in Prague in Peburary. 1948, did likewise. Bruegel Is the seventh. Bruegel has left Germany, U.S. authorities said. His whereabouts it present are undisclosed. In his letter of resignation, he declared that Czech interests always lay with Western Germany and his government is jepordizing the national cause by playing the Communist game and doing no business with Western Germany. with the House's decision to give them a pension. But if this House approved pen- ton bill becomes law—it can't unless the Senate also approves—government esperts figure H will cost the government $85 billion over the neict 50 years. But on the same day the House okayed the pension bill, it's rules committee—which has large control over what the House can vole on— hesitated about letting th housing bill come to a vote. This involve* more billions. Meanwhile, House members are utill toying with the idea of giving themselves $3,000 a year extra fo more clerks and $500 additional for things like telephone calls and telegrams. afore than 37 million motor ve hides were registered in the Unitec States on January 1, 1941.

UTj — The Judith Coplon espionage trial was recessed today to give attorneys an opportunity to prepare written arguments on a legal snarl. The question is whether the gor- ernment must produce the full text of 22 secret FBI reports, as demanded by the defense. It could have crucial importance in this and future cases- The government contends it should be required to produce only partial texts to show that papers found in Miss Coplon's pocketboott when she was arrested with Valentine A. Gubitchev came from official documents. Federal Judge Albert L. Reeves of Kansas City, Mo., presiding at the trial, said attorneys for both sides asked the one-day postponement. The trial resumes tomorrow. Federal prosecutors have hinted at the possibility the case might be Seriously-Burned Lad Finally Loses Fight with Death VERNON, Tex., June 8. «•> Donnle Woodward, plucky 10-year- old farm boy who amazed doctors by surviving horrible burns for almosi a month, died today. The young son of a tenant farm er who had been novering betweei ife and dcaih since May 10, when 70 percent of his body was burned For weeks, the boy had alternately milled and then weakened. Onl' yesterday he had revived enough to _ talk to his parents. He aske< about his pet cow "Old Jersey" am his dog. He worried about "Old Jer sey" and didn't want anvone else tc milk her. Letters and gifts had been arriv ing for weeks as a tribute to his courage. A brother accidentally tossed blazing gasoline on Donnle. The boys were burning weeds. The boy had been kept under an oxygen tent in this small north Texas town ever since he was burned. He was given frequent blood transfusions, though It was difficult for physicians to find a vein under his scarred skin. Late last month, Donnie said "I want to live. I know they say I can't live, but. gee, I sure want to." PRETTY, SOFT—A new plastic mattress floating in a Palisades, K.

Golden Library of the Mayas Sought by Two Californians CORONA DEL, MAR. Calif., June*. i, IJf>— Two Intrepid California ex- tlorers, Dana Lamb and his at- .ractive wife, Ginger, were enroule by Jeep today for unexplored jungle areas in southernmost Mexico in quest of the "golden library" of the Mayas. The Lambs are covering familiar ground. In 1941 they sighted from an airplane the "lost city" of the' ancient Mayas and lived not far ' from it for three months with one \ of the lost tribes whose ancestors! may have antedated the Chinese. ] Lamb and his wife are starting } back with 10,000 feel of color film to make movies of the people and I the ruins of the Mayan culture, j Legend has It that the lost city ! was established by or became a sanctuary for Mayan fugitives from | the Spanish conquest. Those who survived the horrible brutality are known as the "Lacandon." The leader of one of these trives, known as Chief Ken-Tin, told the Lambs in 1941 that the Lacandon consider all the rest of the world "bad," ad that near the tribal camp, buried deep underground are "true writings which say that people someday will destroy themselves because they all are warlike." The letters are inscribed in gold. There are only thre pages of the once-rich Maya library known to the civilized world, Lamb said, and history records that Spanish con- quistadores burned thousands upon thousands of volumes. Illiteracy data last collected by the Census Bureau In 1930, showed illiteracy in the united States had been cut to 43 per cent. Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARIW. III..
