The "Buy American" law requires U. S. firms to be given preference in government purchases unless foreign suppliers submit markedly lower bids. The Chamber's Policy Committee has prepared resolutions for a convention vote tomorrow, calling riers io foreign imports. Doim, from Midland, Mich., argued in a -prepared speech that there is "plenty of evidence" that American tariff revision will not boost' friendly nations to economic self-sufficiency or substantially relieve the U. S. tax. burden. Granting the desirability of helping other nations out of their economic difficulties, Doan said, "Tariff reductions are something to be worked out slowly, judicially and very selectively by. qualified experts' using economics and stability, rather than emotion, as their guide."

HiKhwxy 81 Phone 2380 didn't show .what the members did with the cash they withdrew. They don't have, to use it for stationery, and they don't have to account for it. Several members listed as having made cash withdrawals said they had used the money for various office expenses. For example, Chairman Lecompte (R-Iowa) of the House Administration Committee said he believed he had bought two typewriters for an office he maintains in his district. He noted that the only requirement Imposed by the House is that the money be used for office expense. Appropriations Each fear Rep. Thomas (D-Tex), in a separate interview, said he withdraws the stationery expense money as fast as it becomes available, and then pays his expenses by check. He said that method makes it easier to keep track of office 'expenses. Each year an appropriation is made for stationery, and it stays in the fund until used. Heavy withdrawals in cash came after the House voted an additional $300 stationery allowance during the 1952 session for each of its members on the ground there had been an "unanticipated increase in expenses." Previously it had voted ?800 per member for the year. As of Jan. 3, Warren reported, 80 House members had overdrawn their stationery accounts by a total of $7,575, and former members owed 82,407. For the present 83rd Congress, each member started with a new stationery allowance of 8800. That amount could be Increased later 'i the year.
