Warren Denies GQPCharae of Playing Politics WASHINGTON VPi — Comptroller General' Lindsey C. Warren denies a Republican accusation that his office was playing politics by deciding at this time to distribute four million dollars In brvck holiday pay to government workers. Rep. Charles A. Halleck (R-Ind) said Friday in a statement distributed by the GOP National Committee that the payments were authorized by a. Supreme Court decision early this year, and Warcrn's decision to pay could have been made public at any time. He said the "timing" of the decision is "an obvious and outright attempt to buy votes." Warren in a letter to Halleck yesterday denied, the accusation, and said the delay in payment was • caused mainly by the detail work Involved. He said 15,000 claims for back pay had to be examined, and that it took time to reduce these to the 8.000 which will be paid. onncl recently at peak levels, ha >egun a gradual reduction of staff o get Us payroll within the limit f current appropriations. Bureau officials said the cut can ic carried out without interference with vital internal security task because some of FBI's routine nvestigations of applicants for government jobs have been shifted to the Civil Service Commission. A bureau official said In response to inquiries that no firings are in progress, or planned—the FBI is simply depending on the normal number of resignations, without replacements, bringing the payroll into line with available funds in side the next few months. During this freeze on new appointments, the bureau has likewise suspended staff transfers on its own motion from one grade to another which might Involve higher pay. Employes who might normally rate such promotions are being placed on a list for later recognition. ' However, routine advancements from one grade to another on the basis of lime served, as provided by the Civil Service Statute, will continue. The bureau outlined the situation thus: FBI started the fiscal year July l r 1952, with more workers than its appropriation provided for because Congress, at the bureau's' request, relieved the FBI of detailed checks on every person who applies, for a federal job. This routine was shifted to the civil service inspectors, with provision for FBI taking over full investigation only for jobs involving national security and where the civil service investigation develops some hint of disloyal asso- catioii or activity. Congress gave FBI a 1953 fiscal appropriation ol $84,400,000 compared with $90,200,000 last year, and the new funds ware further cut to about 77 million when the Budget Bureau impounded a portion to be used as needed by the appropriate agency in the investigation of job applicants The FBI declined to estimate in I numbers just how much staff reduction is in prospect. The FBI payroll now totals 14,600 which Officers May Force feed on Doomed Man JACKSON, MlHfi.
