G/s Wor liV I'KTKK EDSO.V Courier N'civs Washington Correspondent Early in the period of national defense, Gen. George C. Marshall suggested that a new division lx> set up in the office of Ihe Inspector General of llic Army lo keen an eye on construction and procurement programs. Realizing tills was lo he » far more expensive war than the last one, appreciating lhat sonic mistakes would be made, it was considered essential to keep a close check on Ihe spending of bilUoai of dollars in public funds. The result was Die creation of a new Procurement and Construction Inspections division in the Office oi the Inspector Genera!.' The question now is how well the inspections job on this effort has ftcci done. In the insistence on speed, witli accomplishments counting first and economic efficiency second, il is perhaps only natural that sonic public money slipped through the fmgcis and down the drains. There were congressional camp construction investigations aired lliroughoul 1941. A $515,000,000 program for building 223 camps actually cost S8ia,Ol)0,COO, according to a Senate report. Then came a series of ordnance plant coiistruclion programs lhat did v !iot make nice rending. After inspecting the Woll Creek Ordnance Plant project at Milan, Tenn., Hie Senalels Truman Committee reported that the i War Department had failed to conduct an adequate investigation simultaneously with coiistruclion, and lhat it even refrained from making a lliorough check of mailers referred to it. The subsequent report by the Office oi the Inspector General was considered by the Truman Committee to lw an attempt to whitewash conditions there. ' On the other hand, one high Army officer conlends that Ihe inspector general's report was a thorough investigation and its report one of Ihe best ever prepared. The report was not made public, however, and was not even turned over to Congress, as all reports of Iho inspector general's department arc considered confidential and not SKIN IRRITATIONS of PIMPLES ACNE TETTER ECZEMA f«xtern*Ily cauied) Check Itching—Burning Iho nnliscplic—easy way ivilh famotia Black nnd Whi(o Oin titicnt.
