\ TACK 2—NAl'GATl'CK NEWS (CONN.), WEDNESDAY, DEC. ?8, I!M!)| DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Pan American Is Handicapped By Marshall Plan; American Legion's Friendship Train Of Toys Begins To Roll; Two Boys From Denver Face Age-Old Feud. Washington—Toward the end ot the war, President Roosevelt called in Juan Trippe, apple-cheeked President of Pan American World Airways, and suggested that his airline start a chain of hotels around the world. Shc^tajre of dollars Tvrfe sure to be one of the great economic curses of the world after the war, FDR warned, and one way to spread dollars abroad was through the tourist trade. However, good hotels were- necessary for the tourists, which was why Roosevelt urged Pan American Airways to go into the hotel business As a result. Pan Am is building a chain of modern hotels—or at least trying to build them—in various parts of the world. However, their biggest handicap, believe it er not. is the Marshall Plan. In l^atin America) where the Marshall Plan does not operate, the hotel program is going well! But in Turkey, a country blessed with a lot of Mar-^all Plan money, the ECA has actually helped to stymie American enterprise. What happened was that Pan American, after lengthy negotiations, worked out an agreement with the Turkish government to build and operate a hotel for Turkey. The hotel was to be financed with an Export-Import Bank loan at 4 per cent. Just about this time, however, an ECA expert came to Turkev from Paris and recommended that the hotel be built not by American businessmen but by »hn Swiss or Belgians, f (The ECA 'ex pert once operated an American ^-.xpress company office in Switzerland wnt-re he clashed with Pan «™.«u^i.0 vmwj iur me xiomes Water Heaters I Kitchen Sinks * How About Your f POWDER ROOM? | Geo.

Furthermore, he recommended that ECA money be advanced to the Swiss or Belgians to build the, hotel. Since ECA money would draw only 2 iper cent interest, Naturally it looked a lot better to the Turkish government than Export-Import Bank money at 4 per cent. So now the deal is up in the air. That iis the way ECA so-called experts are undercutting American business. Friendship Train of Toys The American Legions Friendship train of toys to the kids of Europe is really beginning to roll. If the veterans aren't careful, they'll get so many toys that Philadelphia's Pier 38, from which the toys are to be shipped by CARE will be swamped. Not only the legion but all '.sorts of people all over the country are remembering' that, while food is better in Europe, toys are scarce, and that its Europe's children of today who are either our friends or the soldiers of tomorrow. In Virginia, for instance, dynamic Governor William Tuck has issued a proclamation urging Virginians to get behind the train of toys. "This program," said the governor, "is designed to bring ihappuness to children, is a"[3O [planting- seeds of faith, trust, and good will in the fertile young minds of Europe's children." The ministerial Association of Richmond wrote a letter to all -Protestant preachers asking them to explain the toy program on Christmas Sundayt while the Catholic Bishop of Richmond and the Rabbils of the city have done the same. Richmond's police stations and lirehouseU are serving- I ais collection depots for toys. j Two Boys From Denver Two boys from Denver, Colo., now in the cabinet, face one of the oldest and most vigorous fends in the government. It's over who is. to control the Forest Service—the Agriculture Department or the Interior Department. All during the Roosevelt Administration, this battle was fought back and forth between Secretary of the Interior Ickes and Secretary of Agriculture 'Wallace. It was the chief reason for the bad blood bet-ween them. Ickes claimed that since his Interior r>epartment had control of the National Parks and the public lands, it should also control the forests which are on those lands. But Wallace claimed that the Forest Service, for years under Agriculture, should remain there. It did. Now Charley Brannan, Secretary of Agriculture, and Oscar Chapman, new Secretary of the Interior, face the same tug of war Both are old friends, tooth from the same town, and both helped each other up the ladder of government. Chapman helped Brannan get his first job as assistant secretary of agriculture. And later when Brannan beat Chapman into the cabinet he in turn, offered to step aside if the President had any objection tn two Denver men in his official family. Not only because of this old friendship, but because both are board-gauged men, Chapman and Brannan aren't likely to -get peeved at each other over the Forest Service. Nevertheless, the boys ar-cund them have already started making faces. ^ARRIVALS ON 'QUEEN ELIZABETH' PRESIDENT OF THE INTERNATIONAL Ladies Garment Workers Union David Dubinsky (left) and Matthew-WoU, AFL vice-president are pie- turcd on their arrival in New York aboard the Queen Elizabeth.
