FAGK 2—XAUGATUOK XKW.S (CONN.). THURSDAY, OCT. 27, DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: FDR Jr.'s Son May Be Another "Chip Off The Old Block;" Life Insurance Companies Avoid Income Taxes Due To Loophole In Law; U. S. Will Try To Win Over Neutral Nehru. Washington—Cong. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr., has an 8-year-old son named Christopher who may turn out to be another chip off the old block. Recently Congressman Roosevelt called his son on the telephone in New York and asked him if he would like to come to Washington. Christopher aid he Washington. Christopher said he would under certain conditions. "If I come to Washington will I be able to see the President?" asked Christopher. "I think so," replied Congressman Roosevelt. "Well. 1 continued Christopher, "will he let us sleep in our own beds In the White House?" Roosevelt roared. When Christopher arrived in •Washington, his father drove him around the capital, then tried to park to go inside a government building. Only a tiny space was available, so Roosevelt asked a policeman if he could park in a restricted area. The policeman, r.oting FDR, Jr.'s congressional license plate, said okay. As Roosevelt and his son got out of the car, Christopher turned on the traditional Roosevelt grin, looked up to the policeman and said: "Officer, meet my congressman." Insurance Lobby Congressman Walter A. Lynch, New York Democrat, and a conscientious member of the Ways and Means Committee, will head a subcommittee to investigate an important loophole in the tax laws wnereby life insurance companies do not pay income taxes. The life insurance companies— with admitted assets of over 50 bil- fccns and investments in practically every kind of business—paid not a dime in income taxes to the federal government for 1947 and 1948, and they will pay none for 19-19. Despite months of negotiations with tax experts in the Treasury Department, spokesmen for the insurance companies have refused to agree to a recommendation for even a token "stopgap" tax payment ol 545.000,000 a year for 1948 and 1949—even though going "scot free" for 1947. At present the Sl.500,000,000 annual net investment income of life insurance companies is not taxed — either as to the company or as to the policyholders. The job of the Lynch committee is to decide what taxes should be collected, and then tt- prepare legislation to close the loophole in the present law. The committee has to do all this in the f&ce of a lobby considerably more powerful than the real estate, oil, or public utility lobbies. It will be interesting to see how Congressman Lynch makes out in his lonely battle against the giants. Neutral Nehru Some people were disappointed when Prime Minister Nehru of India issued his statement that India would take no sides in the cold war. In view of India's strategic position between the East and West, his words fell with the unwelcome reverberation of a rock on a polished ballroom floor. Nehru's neutrality, however, was not news to State Department officials who invited him to this coun- tiy and who knew that, as between tne Russians and the British, Nehru had spent most of his life fearing the British. To change this suspicion of the western world was specifically why they invited him. Nehru spent 13 years in a British jail, considers Russians more Asiatic than European, governs a peo- pie who are not much more than one rice bowl ahead of starvation. Instinctively.

S. diplomats don't expect to change this point of view overnight, realize that Nehru couldn't posibly announce, while here, that he will lead an anti-Soviet bloc in the middle of Asia. But after he returns to India, they hope that gradually he can line up his country on the side of the United States. Note—Nehru and Secretary of Defense Johnson became great friends while Johnson served as special ambassador to India. That is why Nehru is spending a week end with Johnson at White Sulphur Springs, W. Va. "Whistle Stop" Campaign The details haven't been worked out, but President Truman is planning at least one trip to whip up popular support for the planks of his fair deal legislative platform which Congress has not yet passed. He confided this to representatives Frank Karsten of Missouri and Mel Price of Illinois when Karsten reminded him that the- toughest battles—increased taxes, civil rights, aid to education—were to be fought in the January session.
