THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1947 __BLTTHEVTLLB (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Senators Against Hearing Official Lawmakers Oppose Calling Morgenthau As Witness in Probe BV KI;X CHANEV tUnlled Press Staff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, Nov. 20. (UP) — Senator. 1 ; rccclvctl .somewhat eooly yesterday the suggestion of Rep. d Craivford. B.. Mich., that for^Treasury Secretary Henry Mor- ithnu l>e asked to testify about wartime speculation o[ federal officials in government bonds. Several senators agreed that M. vigorous investigation should be conducted into -such .speculation. But most expressed the opinion thai further evidence -should be collected before Morgenthau is asked to appear. Ken. Homer Ferguson, R., Mich., whose War Investigating Subcommittee brought out the wartime bond buying of Maj. Gen, Bennett E. Meyers, .said the facts could be obtained from people who arc in Washington now. "I have said v*e wilt look into this matter further," Ferguson said. "But I can't see. that it i.s immediately necessary to call Mr. Morgenthau." However. Sen. Claude Pepper, D., Fla,. also a member of the war investigating committee, .said he Jthought it "would be perfectly al! "right" to seek information from and other wartime treasury officials. He atlcicd that legislation might be "advisable." Meyers, according to testimony given Ferguson's subcommittee. hjt;ht some S-1000,000 worth of gov- e^rnent bonds by putting up only one per cent of his own money. He borrowed the remainder from banks, Meyers suid he ran a $20,03:1 investment into a profit of S90.COO. previously branded as "an outright lie" Meyers' claim that the then treasury .secretary had told him he couldn't go wrong by purchasing bonds on margin. $70 Collar for $12 Dog Typifies How Living Costs In Paris Run PARIS (UP) — Prices? Don't, tell me about prices. The other day we bought a collar and lead for our pup Nothing fancy. Just an ordinary leash. -Several chewlngs proved. It v,as far from real leather. The price — $10. The dog hart only east. $12. Cost of living? In Paris it's all cftst und little living. Apart from the price of food, which is too fantastic lo be believed, the ordinary commodities of day-to-day ii[e are just about out of reach.
