(ff) — Routed House economy forces beat the bushes for votes today in an nt- terript to defeat a move to add $75.000,000 for public hospital funds to a »»,000,000,<KX> appropriation bill. They were up against a strong coalition of Republicans and Demo• crate who have announced that they will try to double the $15,000,000 recommended by the House Appropriations Committee for the hospl- tftl program. .. The.program Is handled by the Federal Security Agency, whose funds are included in the section of the one-package money bill which came up for House consideration today. The funds are In the : form of contract authority and are used by the FSA to help states and local communities build public hospitals. • .The appropriations committee has recommended $1,591,784,590 in cash and $79,288,000 In contract authority for the KSA for the fiscal year starting July 1. This compares with $1,635,033,600 cash and $161.211,000 contract authority requested by President Truman. Included In the FSA section of the big bill is a committee recommendation of'$208.573,100 in cash for the Labor Department, a cut of almost: $12,000,000 from the President's requests. The /'economy bloc" headed by Rep. Taber (R-NYJ fared poorly yesterday. It was unable to cut $2.000,000 from the Reconstruction finance Corporation's, administrative expense allotment and was beaten, 93 to 88, on an amendment that added $1,000,000 to the bill. The extra money, the first Increase approved, is for the Coast Guard's Reserve training program. An amendment to add $22,000,000 for. the Postoffice Department's operating expense allotment was defeated without a major fight. To date.the House-voted cuts total $7,700,000, or less than one-half of one per cent on the basis of items totaling $2,192,584,402 already acted on. Taber earlier had called for to cuts of at least a billion dollars. While major sections of the bill aw still to be considered, there Is a possibility that substantial , increases may be voted In funds for national-rlefense:and for rivers and harbors and flood control projects. A flnal Kotise vote-on.the bill is not expected before the end of next week, when an all-out attempt to affect a substantial cut may be made through a motion to send it back to the appropriations committee.

I have more thin 1600 owners. That's how many people have invested their savings in the'lines 'and plants and other equipment to provide £ou :with dependable, low-cost eitctric service. A business like mine'has lo have a lot of owners, because it takes a lot of money to provide the kind of service our customers are used to. As a matter of fact, right now, behin~d each employee in this company there is more than $38,000.00 worth of equipment—compared to an average of ?6,600 per 'employee in other industries. All over the country' there are hundred* of other •Icctrie companies; juit like mine, with hundreds of thousands of owners. Altogether these "private" companies have some 3,500,000 direct owners. In addition, practically every person who has a life insurance policy is;an indirect owner of some electric company, because insurance companies invest heavily in business-managed, tax-paying electric companies. PRIVATE? Yes, privately owned and operated. But it's a pretty PUBLIC business just the same. And it's managed by business men instead'of bureaucrats. Ark-Mo Power Co.
