S. Government Helps U. S. Steel Corp. Despite Its Opposition To Truman Labor Policy. Washington—Resignation of Iso^ lationist insurance man James Kemper as treasurer of the GOP National Committee was dressed up in a high-sounding smokescreen about foreign policy in "order to cover up a bitter (personal GOP feud. Actually, his resignation was handed in one hour after Guy Gabrielson of New Jersey became the new national chairman last August, but it was agreed to delay the announcement until the political horizon was calmer. Kemper's exit puts the spotlight on some red faces and raw nerves inside the GOP committee, which probably will be smoothed over now that he is out. Athough Kemper talked big about lack of funds in the GOP treasury, real f'ict is that he was never much of a. money-raiser. The best GOP money-raiser was the man Kemper and Dewey ousted as GOP national Finance chairman after the 1?*8 convention—Walter Hope. Hope, an able New York lawyer, learned of his resignation by reading it in the TOorning papers, and his friends claim that the shock was responsible for his death a month or so later. Hope left in the treasury a surplus of $800,000 after the Philadelphia convention. He was Veplaced by Bourbon Prince Harold Talbot, eager aspir- ar.t to the Court of St. James, whose family had almost ordered their clothes for their presentation to the king—when they heard the news of Dewey's defeat. Between January 1949 and August 4, when GOP Chairman Hugh .Scott resigned, Talbot had raised the magnificent sum of S71.000—while Scott and Kemper were spending money at the rate of $80,000 a month. Talbot's main excuse was that he couldn't collect funds because of the Omaha GOP fight. And when it became apparent that Guy Gabrielson was to be the new chairman, Talbot began a quiet campaign against him. which culminated in a lunch at which he and Gabrielson patched up their differences. That same night, how~--""- **toijv, 4.1UW- ever, Talbot dined with an oil executive -who reported back to the new GOP chairman that Talbot had begun his attack all ave- again. * As a result of all this, GOP finances today are in terrible shap» However, with Sinclair Weeks of Massachusetts now in charge of the National Finance Committee, they are improving.

Steel Corporation was using its influence against a settlement of the strike, it was also trying to increase its tremendous hold on the steel industry through the U. S. government.

The shipyard was purchased by U. S. Steel's wholly owned subsidiary Consolidated Steel, upon whose property the yard was built. Then alert Herbert Bergson, head of the justice Department's anti-trust division, ruled that this would increase U. S. Steel's monopoly position and would be against the best interests of the U. S. A. However, this didn't please Congressman 3 ,M. Coombs, and other Texas politicos who 'thereupon pushed a resolution through both hotises of Congress authorizing the shipyard facilities to be Hold to U. S. Steel.
