Brelnlng, veterans administration Insurance chief , had nothing to say, but a VA spokesman conceded that such s delay Is likely. Fonda Aaked The agency asked for 37.364.000 as a start on the Job estimated eventually to cost 123,000,000 of auditing National Service Life Insurance records and preparing dividend checks. Officials expected the 17,364,000 to last no more than six months, when another appropriation would have to be requested. Congress appropriated (2,861,000. - VA had estimated that the re quested appropriation would enable It to add 2.7C0 employes within one year or 5,400 for six-month terms to take, care of the program, and possibly to start paying out a divi dend next summer. "Nobody knowa how much the program will be delayed under the" entailer appropriation, but It's chylous the Job eaa't be done as Initially plea-ned," the spokeamaa said. There's sn estimated 98,735,000.-000 in the national service life Insurance rand. It Involves more than 30,000,000 active and lapsed poli cies, with a number of veterans or their heirs due to collect dividends on two or more policies each.

J j iff -1 t j i; - i , I ? : aii,ftv"-i Analysis Cominform Act Cloudi Red Issues BT J. K. ROBERTS, JR. Perhaps to save face over failure to unseat the Yugoslav government or perhaps in an effort to keep a highly offended Tito from pulling out of tha Russian sphere, Communists now appear to be swinging ever to the lis that psry matter Is not necessarily factor In international relations. So many ingredients have now been thrown into the stew created by the Cominform attack on Tito's regime that, aa la frequently the ease when Communist ideology runs tip against political facta, it doesn't make sense. Balkan Bloe Tito's party ssys it want to be friendly with Russia, and in the asms bresth blasts intervention in Yugoslavia's Internal affairs, calls for a stronger army to maintain independence, and returns to the Mosoow-dlsupproved campaign for a Balkan bloc. And, of all things, the renewed Balkan bloo appeal is addressed to Bulgaria, which is ruled by George Dlmltrov, Tito's rlvsl for first place in southeastern European af fairs. Bulgaria is also the only satellite which is historically pro-Rus. slan. (Belgrade's reference- to In. chwton of Albania in the bloc means nothing. Albania already Is a Yugoslav county.) Bulgarian View r , Bulgaria has had so Urns, to reply regarding the block, but says with one side of her mouth (her government press .department), that the International crisis within the Communist party baa nothing to. do with continued close Yugoslav-Bulgarian relations. From the other side of her mouth her all controlling Communist national front formally approves the Corn- inform blsst against Tito. In other places, too, including Moscow, Communists would have you believe that the Cominform action was merely a part of communism's normal self-searching and an effort to prevent a brother from following the wrong track, not an effort to break his back. They apparently would like to for- getthecall Issued to the Yugoslav party, whicn was forcefully rejected, that it rise up against the leaders who were conducting. a "hateful" policy toward Russia. Marshall Flan Effect It may be some time before we are sble to separate the real from the seeming In this crazy picture. The Marshall plan seems to be having its impact Tito's on willingness to fore collectivization on his violently opposed peasants is a factor. Moscow and Oeorgl Dlmltrov both seem to have become painfully aware of Tito's size end independence. He has flouted Andrew Zhdanov's "thought police." Set-back in the Communist-sponsored Otilk civu .war may be involved, You could go on listing the angles ail day. Only on thing Is -absolutely clear. There is a crisis in Com munist-sphere a f f s tr s. Handled properly, it may result In great profit for the anti-Communist world. The tTnited States has moved quickly to reach a financial settlement on war-sequestered funds which may net Tito some $30,000,- ooo. Other blandishments from the West undoubtedly wUl be offered In an effort to make his spilt with Moscow final. There is a bar possibility that Yugoslavia, once. considered a rock-ribbed bastion of Russia's new empire, may be the first satellite to be rescued.
