COVMER MOWDAY, OCT. «, MM How Much Is Truman's Whistle Trip Costing Us? Newsmen Can't Answer Army Signal Corps officers who have an elaborate communications system of radio telephone nnd radio teletype which kecpa tho President of the United States in touch 1th the White House nnd all world apitals at nil times. Army Men A valla hi* How much do their salaries nnc xpenscs amount to? That woult equtro a first - hand statement rom cnch Just ns it would in the ase of the Secret Service men. Truman aides point gut thai 'rumnn didn't rcnuent the Sccre 1 crvlce to come along on the trip, mt the Army Signal orps men! ave to be available at all times,' iid that no rnntter how deeply Ihe 'resident Involves himself in poll- Ics, there is always official busl- .ess to be transacted when he IB n the road. As for tho salaries ot Ihe Presl- Icnt and his ataff during the per- od they are away on political mis- .ions, those aides point out that the ;alnrlcs of campaigning governor*, cnators and representatives go on during campaigns, ns do those of heir secretaries, clerks rnd other ildes, They ask, "Would you deduct .wo weeks of the President's salary under the circumstances?" By EBNEST B, VACCARO ABOARD TRUMAN TRAIN WV- How much IB President Truman's 8.500-mlle, 24-state campaign tour for Adlal Stevenson costing the government? This wna the query, relayed to Ihto correspondent aboard the 16- oar special train taking the President from whistle stop to whistle stop coast-to-coast. An editor of n newspaper wanted The answer to that question is beyond the determination of a reporter without the power to subpoena witnesses and compel their testimony and time In which to record and weigh it. The answer would involve a decision as to exactly where a political action starts nnd an official action begins. It would require a complete record not only of the salaries of everyone aboard the "give 'em lloll" presidential special, but of many others along the route It travels. The Democratic National Committee has announced It Is pick- Ing up Hie check for this 15-day speaking tour by Truman with nr estimated figure of something under $25,000. That apparently covers the vail road transportation, meals, hotel and other such expenses of the President, his speech writers, sten ographers, secretaries, clerks and others. Secret Service Not Covered It does not cover tho expenses of the Secret Service men. The law requires that they be with the President at all times wherever he Is and whatever his mission, and no Invitation is In volved insofar ns Ihe Nntlona Committee Is concerned. About 18 Secret Service men, 01 duty In shifts, are on the Trunun train. Whoever happens to be presldcn at the time gets the advantag' of the Secret Service protection Ii a campaign year. No politico party could raise enough money to provide the sei vice? Unit fall b: law to a president. Because they must assure hi protection at till limes, they sen cut agents in advance to go ever step of the route he must trivve! How much Is this service cosl Ing, In terms of salary, Pullmn accommodations nnd per diem u to a maximum of $9 a day? That would require a lot of Treasury experts with figures on the ealnrles of each and every man on the White House detail, and the record of how many field office Secret Service men nre brought into play. There ore others, who arc required to be with the President at all times, wherever ho Is, nnd whatever he Is doing. Lite the j Read Courier News Classified Ads.
