OCTOBER IB, 194T 'Fraud' Charges Levelled at FHPA Sen. Ferguion -Says Atlanta Office Tri«d To Deceive Congress WASHINGTON. Ocl. 16. (UP) — BPII. Homer Ferguson, R, Mich., y-.'.-iicnlay accused the Federal Public Honing Authority of "fraud" in ;t.s past financial practices. Ferguson accu.scd Ihe RK^ncy's s Atlanta, Go... office of deliberately | recording a fictitious pnyim-nt of; office expenses In order to deceive j Congress as to the amount of money I H had spent. His charges were marie at a Senate Subcommittee hearing on charges of Improper^- accounting practices by the PPHA. The hearing is being conducted by a subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Expenditures of Executive Departments. Stephen H. Ives, director of Irn Corporation audits division of the General Accounting Office, was explaining to (lie Senators results of a survey of FPHA records for 1S45 »ud ID 16. The survey was made for the CiAO by Price. Waterhouse & Co., independent public accountants. He said the accounting firm found thai records In Hie FPHA Allanla ollice Indicated that, "at least, one fictitious Recount payable was charge to expense In Ihe amount of $26,250 for painting ai::l decorating in respect of a non existent committment." The accounting firm said (h c entry apparently was made so that the founds could be kept ana used the next year. The firm said this practice "appears to be an Invasion. I If not a violation, of the law . ."i Ferguson interrupted In askji^ whether they did not constitute a > IY\GSS fraud. j -~i**+*f "It might be; Ihiif's n strong word." Ives said. "1 don't like the word 'fraud.'' "Effort to.tu Deceive Congress 1 "It's a fraud," Ferguson rejoined. "It was an effort to deceive Con-gross.

McCarthy, R Wis.. wanted to know whether the Atlanta case had been done deliberately. "II seems so." Ives replied cautiously. McCarthy said • that reminded him of the attitude of the Supreme V Court Justice who. when his attention was called to a flock of newly-shorn sheep, would admit only that " 'they appear to have been shorn on this side.' " Ives then said that whether or not the Atlanta incident constituled fraud, it was "an isolated case." Earlier. Sen. Herbert R. O'Conor, D.

He said the subcommittee had bppn informed of charges against individuals who were IIV ItOLANl) HOrsON Uiiilerl I'ress Staff Correspondent -. BIRMINGHAM. Ala.. Oct. 15. I OP>—The modern woman, streamlined and so business like, is in a heck of a fix. She's torn between so niany psychological fixations that she's, a well groomed mess of trouble for herself and everybody else. Dr. John W. Bick. Jr.. 01 riilann University urged his fellow Southern psychiatrists meeting here to straighten out the so-called modern woman. "She doesn't know whether to delight in sex or to work up a headache." he said. "And the husband kills the urge with a bromide." This was rill brought atdut. Dr. Hick said, by the social re-volution that made women think just because the constitution approved their right to wear pants, many of them thought they had to put" the pants on. The pants simply don't fit. They make the wearer think the filing cabinet can replace the bassinet; that tlie desk can replace the firo- 1056. He added that present FPHA rors to as they be kept." place; that die husband,»is not a lover but a cold business competitor. Modern woman, he continued, is developing a definite aversion to sex. She fights it. But (he world would be miicn hrippicr. II modem woman would put, her mind to the purpose' of her creation, having babies and running a home, he added. Prevention, the New Orleans psychiatrist said, is simply a matter of re-education. If the woman w-orks. man should never challenge i her simply to assert .his superiority. If he asserts his authority,'lie must never expect, the vacuum cleaners hum to replace the "glamorous" whizz of n business office. But on the other hand, he said, he should hold her within reason. Cave men used to do it with clubs and big dinosaur bones, but subtle persuasion must be the modern method. If man fails, it's his fault. Else he's married to an uncommonly stubborn wife. If they have a son, he's doomed maybe to a lifetime I as "mom's boy." .[ This creates another cycle of j psychological (rouble, where the fu- turr daughter-in-law geCs ted \ifil with an unwenned husbnnd.
