Taft Demands Spending Survey Republican Asks • Impartial Group To Advise Congress, By Sterling F. Green WASHINGTON, April 5. <APj>—A demand from Senator Taft for an impartial survey of pre-ent and future costs of government has thro\vn another spotlight on federal spending as an Issue in the November Congressional elections. The - Ohio Republican, a candidate for re-election, wants a "nonpartisan commission of leading citizens" to advise Congresi on the relative Importance of the nation's spending programs and on '''the burden of t?xatlon which a free economy can stand arid stilt exist." He said that today's spending policies can lead to Socialism and a "national calamity." Tait's re- jttptks were In an address he delivered Inst night at the cloie of a three-day meeting of the National Retail Federation. GOP Left U.S. in Black The broadcast speech (CBS) told taxpayers thet the Republican" 80th Congress left the country «,500,000,000 in the black after its two,year term. The present Congress. Taft said, will leave a 1 deficit this year and another $5,000.- OCO.OOQ worth of red Ink In the fiscal year ending June 30, 1951. "It seems to me that the time has come to make a completely impartial, non-partisan study of this wtiole prob \ em of government spending," the Republican Senate leader said. ' " He suggested a "complete restudy" of the agriculture program recalling that* the original farm programs'envisaged no subsidy from the treasury—"the farmer himsfil! look the loss involved in-disposing of the surplus." ..; .. .-•' j7 -: ' Crisis'Danger Magnified JgfTaft voiced the suspicion that the danger of a foreign crisis may the quest for foreign aid appropria- now be "exaggerated^ some what" In lions.,, If the present scale of foreign assistance is to be continued, he sfli.,3, It can be.justified only by "the real existence of a. tremendous national emergency very similar to war." 1 'Under those circumstances, we should balance the budget,by postponing many expenditures at home just as we did during the second world w?r." Taft declared. Taxes Take 2* Per Cent Ke estimated that federal and local taxes, direct and indirect, now eat up 28 per cent of the national Income, or about $60,000,000.000. The Indirect taxes on food, clothing and other necessities alone amount to 21 per cent of the' price p?id for them, the senator estimated. To this extent, he said .taxes "have already become a serious limitation on the liberty of the people;" "Obviously, if this percentage. is increased, -we have less and less freedom," Taft said. "If we reach 80 or 90, per cent we have a complete Socialist .state in which the government conducts all of our activities and our spending for us," Would-Be Plane Designers Deluge Aircraft Plant with Weird Ideas By FRED ZAVETTERO NEA SUff Correspondent SEATTLE. Wash. — (NEA) — Glenn Oalob Is a, patient patent engineer whose job requires him to face hundreds of inventors who besiege Boeing Aircraft Co., with ideas that will (a) startle, (b) revolutionize or tc) even electrify the aviation industry. Orlob is someitmes startled, but rarely electrified, however. For every good idea that comes along, there are scores that are theoretically .worthless or technologically impractical, like an aircraft carrier with wings, for example, Orlob gets letters from homegrown aeronautical wizards who are sure there are vast hordes of spies infesting airplane plants —and also are fully cognizant of tfte value of a buck. To wit. "Deai Sir: I had a dream last light and I developed nn Idea that will revolutionize the aircraft industry. If you meet me in Hogan's Alley with £50,000, I, will deliver ;ame to you or your agents. Sincerely, J. B." Far and away the most popular brainchild of the sidewalk Sikor- skys is the wingless- and tailless- plane. Orlob says letters come in by the hundreds with offer's to reveal — at a price ----- completely- perfected plans for same. Another favorite target of the amateur air- m en is the pla nc t Is a t wi 11 break the sonic barrier. On . paper, it seems, anybody can do it. One man had detailed plans for an emergency escape kit which he offered at a modest fee. Unfortunately this inventor was unable to develop the idea completely since he was an inmate of an eastern prison' at the time. Every letter received concerning new devices is carefully answered Some of the ideas submitted have practical possibilities. Several people are working on devices" to aid in the location of lost planes, others on methods of stopping a plane quickly nf ter landing. - . -.,.,,-,,.,, -,;.-. - v ; . »-. .,_• . ... . ,;,;. Although interested in the de- velopment • of worthy ideas, the company does not subsidize individuals. National security regulations prevent Boeing from showing an undue interest In pla 's submitted by foreign inventors. To Indicate curiosity in a particular phase of aircr;;;t, development would give unfriendly nations a clue to U. fc>. Air Force projects. ''Top secret" sketches and plans are frequently brought into the plant by inventors who mistrust the mail. Sometimes."it takes Orlob as long as four hours to convince the inventor that the company cannot develop the idea, that it has no practical value or that It has already been in use for 10 years. « * • As a plane is being built, Orlob studies the project, closely. He is responsible for patents on all-new devices, and he also sees that they do not infringe on other patents. He secures liccnss rights and arranges payments of rplayties to other firms or individuals. If invent you must, Orlob has some advice for you. Don't send ideas to aircraft companies. Be sure you're working on a real problem and havc s a real solution. Protect your plans and then seek a buyer, - While tins information may sound discouraging. Orlob always reminds his contributors, "A farmer won't buy a pig in a poke. <and we won't buy planes In a brief case."
