WEDNESDAY,.DECEMBER 11, tO!G BLYTIIEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER PAGE THKBV Audit Proposed For New Dealers Republican Senator Insists New Rulers Must Have Figures 'Weekend' Star in Familiar Role fe* * , WASHINGTON, Dec. 11. I UP Sen. E, v. Robertson. iFiep.. Wvo.) today demanded an independent audit of every governmeiil activity under the past H years of D'-'nu,- cratlc rule. , Robertson proposed that the <iu<!il be imulc by certified accountants responsible only to Congress, lie .said the Republican Party should demand it before accepting resnni- .sibllity for government affairs uncV.-r their new congressional majority. Describing the government <>'- tre United States us "the biggest bu«!- MCSS undertaking in the world," Robertson said: "I, for one. urn not prepare:! to accept this responsibility un'.il I know exactly the financial coi i tion of this business." Robertson compared the sv, n to Republican control, of Com ic s with a shift in management of a huge business enterprise. In ] i case, he said, the Democrats \ e fired and the Republicans hir.'d to take over. "We. of the Republican Partv. in order to do our'job, must kn u m financial condition of every depart, ment, bureau and loaning ikenr \ for which the new Congress n t appropriate money and tax iiu 1 people." he said. "\Ve must have authentic fimn- c-ial statements on every phase .;f public endeavor. Without these we cannot intelligently plan our future course." Robertson said the audit sli mid cover the entire period from March •S. 1933, when Franklin U. Roosevelt first took office, through Dec. 31. 1B46. He said he based his demand m the belief Hint the principles of pii- vate enterprise, which made Hie United States a great nation, r,hou!d be applied to government. "These principles have been to- tully ignored for the past 14 ve.irs by the biggest and most important business in our nation," he charged. "Since 1033 our government—l!ie business owned and operated b.v ih.? people—bus spent more than it has taken in: has thrown money -ibimt with apparent disinterest and has piled up a national debt so that it cannot be envisioned by tl-.c average citizen, himself n stockholder in the U. S. A." Robertson contended that in government, as in private business, "the mistakes and the accomplishment of the former management, shoul- 1 be tabulated and credited for 01 against him."
