Washington Hide Padded Payrolls Salary Information Readily Available; Hot Stuff Buried WASHINGTON—If Congressional oinmittees ever try to ferret out ?il he facts about payroll padding on Japitol Hill they won't have an asy time Most of the Information ibout salaries there Is readily ivailable. Bi't the really hot stuff s buried. In'erest in the subject was aroused when former Rep. J. Pnrnell Vhomes went to jail for pocketing money ostensibly going to employes of his office. Rep. Burdick (R.- N.D.) happened to be In his home district about the time Thomas entered the clink and was shocked to find that folks out there were wondering just how many other members of the national legislature were dishonest. lie deniandcd lhal Congress make a thorough Investigate to weed out any other payroll manipulators and clear Congress 1 name. "The overwhelming majority of the members are honest," said B.irdick. "But (he crooks have done more damage than Communists could have done in' 20 years." (Thomas was once chairman of the House Committee on Unamerican Activities.) Looks Slmpfa At first glance it would appear simple to find out who is getting away with payroll padding. On the House side of the Capitol a photo- static copy of the entire payroll Is publicly available each month. The name of each clerk, secretary, administrative assistant or other em- ploye appears along with his salary. The record shows In which committee or congressman's office he or she works. If you smell something fishy about some of the entries, you can go to the office in question and ask if so-and-so works there. If he isn't there, other employes or the congressman might explain that he Is doing some research at the Congressional Library, is ill at home. Is on vacatinn or works in the con pressman's office in his home town All of.which might be quite true. If you find so-and-so actually working there, you have no assurance that he and the rest of the employes there are not kicking parl of their salaries to the congressman. The correct answers might be obtained by an investigating committee. Committee witnesses must testify under oath. But .old timers the Hill say an investigation would be a painful proceeding to man) members, and they'll bet 10 to one that the matter will never reach the investigating stage. The Senate is' not quite so frank about publishing its payroll as tl _ House. It is made public only once a year, and there is an importan omission. The Senate does not pub lish.names and salaries of employe, of particular senators. There is breakdown by committees, but no is survived by a daughter, a son. three sisters and one brother.

Workers' Opinion Key To Peace with Industry LOS ANGELES—(>Pi—What is the key problem facing the private enterprise system? "There are no clear channels /or workers' opinions to reach the top bosses', For each dribble of genuine worker opinion that reaches the top there is a cataract which does not." This is the conclusion of Dr. Robert N. McMurray, Chicago Industrial psychologist, after studying a nnj.- lonal survey of 180.000 employes and 19.000 employers. "Where there has been a sincere effort to uncover the sources of employe discontent," he. said, "the results hnve been gratifying In terms of labor-management good will, productivity and cost saving." by senators' offices. No Explanations No one whom this reporter questioned was able to explain why this WAS done. But one seasoned official of the Senate said he believed it was just a matter of personnel policy in the offices. The senators didn't want their employes to know what other employes were making In the matter of'their own expense allowances, [he senators. Incidentally, are somewhat more generous to themselves than the representative: are. Members of both bodies have voted themselves substantial allowances In addition io S2.500-a- year tax-free expense allowances. On the House side every member is given a fiat sum of $500 each fiscal ye«r for stationery and another $500 for telegrams and long distance calls. The senators get $5Qi a year for stationery, can send an; number of official telegrams, am may make 50 free long distance telephone calls a month.
