Then he told all the bank employes that since disinfecting equipment had not arrived wo must all take orally a medicine he called a preventative. I saw that he wore on his arm the official insignia of a municipal official and his bearing and manners convinced me he was duly authorized. He looked to be about 50 years old. He then produced two bottles containing what he said was a medicine supplied by General Mac - Arthur's Headquarters. He explained that a dose from the first bottle must be followed by another from the second bottle. I called all the bank staff into the office and told each member to bring a teacup into which he put about half a tea - spoonful from the first bottle. He warned everyone that the medicine would affect tooth enamel and insisted that it be placed on the tongue, and swallowed quickly. Timing his activities with a wrist watch, he poured about a third of a teacupiul from the second bottle and swallowed it himself. I drank first and the rest of (he bank employes followed almost simultaneously. I am not much of a drinker but it tasted like gin and it burned my throat. About 3D seconds later T began to feel ralnt. so I rushed to the bathroom. By this time I realized something was wrong as some employes already had collapsed. As soon as I returned from the bathroom, I fell unconscious. All the bank currency hnd been locked up and morning "deposits totaling one million yen had been sent to the main bank.

Since, he becanje chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, that institution has taken an increasingly active part In local affairs, although a part of the national system. Mr. McCabe leans toward decentralization, and away from the highly centralized philosophy that has marked the federal government the past 15 years. He is strong for local government, feeling that without healthy local business untts, there can be no over - all national strength. Jn recent statements, Mr. McCabe has called for co - operation between management, labor and government as it means to combat inflation. He has urged a cut in the federal debt as a step that should precede tax reduction, and he Jeans toward a policy of credit contraction and saving as primary meitns of curtailing the inflation spiral. Intensely interested in extending sound aid to foreign nations, the newly - named Federal Reserve chairman would have foreign aid administered by one man who would report directly to the President, lie said last fall in an address to the Pennsylvania Newspaper Publishers' Association, meeting at.

His late father, William R. McCabe, was founder and first president of the Selbyville Bank, and was an early exponent of the Federal Reserve System. Although confined to a wheel chair with arthritis most of his business life, Mr. McCabc's father was active in the bank,' in local business and farming. He was one time banking commissioner for the State of Delaware. It was Tom's lot as a boy. along with his brother, to run errands for his father, and to help expedite banking matters in the Dela - After attending Wilmington Conference Academy, at Dover, Del., Tom McCabe entered Swarthmore College, graduating in 1915. He Joined Scott Paper Company in 1D16 as a salesman, packing a sample case and calling on retail merchants. After time out for World War T. In which he served as a captain in the Army. Tom returned to Scott where he became assistant sales manager in 1919. From 1920 to 1922, he served as sales manager, later aa secretary and vice president, becoming president of the company in 1927, From the time Tom McCabe first Joined the struggling little Seolt Paper Company, in Chester, in the days when it was hard - pressed to buy raw materials and meet its weekly payrolls, he has shown faith in the future of the business by investing his spare earnings in the company's common slock. Records of the Securities and Exchange Commission show that he, held S6.574 shares, as oi Nov, 30. 1347. There were 871,000 shares outstanding, so that he owns approximately ten per cent of the company's ownership shares. The value of tiiose shares exceeds s.;.,,.

Purpose of the parley was w get support for legislation relating to pay raises for mailmen from the Congress. At the conference, it was agreed that since the cost of living, by U. S. ; rcu u oi M'"' "7 - "v - UV " n" . had' their last pay 'boost, it wasn't asking wo much to expect an $800 raise annually to meet the Infla tionary times. Brogan pointed out that a $2100; oostamce. employe today, with deoendents, gets a take - home pay of $72 semi - monthly. The mailman with two tiepenaents gets a laite - hnmp nav ni SS3 seml - monthlv. "Nothing to brag about," said Brogan. The $B00 per year boost would mean a raise of about $15 per week. Brogan wanted to clear another nolnt. Most people think the post - bfflce department operates at a loss It's not so. a year here, a year there, sure. Maybe it does operate at a loss. But if credit allowances were made for mail carried free .of charge from government departments and agencies, the postofflce department would be almost always in the black." And what does Brogan propose the public ao aoout it; "Well, write letters to Washington, Let. Congress know that you are behind pending legislation for pay raises," urogan suggcsLea.

The Senate eominiLtee ha already queried Pennsylvania's two senators, Martin and Meyers, who praised President Truman's choice of the Chester industrialist to head the Federal Reserve Board. Senator Martin said. today that he "considers it. a good appointment. I have known Mr. McCabe for some time and will vote for Ills confirmation." Senator Meyers also said today he would vote for confirmation. He said, though, that he was "not at all acquainted with Mr. McCabe, but I have always heard very favorable things about him." The senator added that Mc - Cabe's nomination was "a personal appointment by Mr. Truman and free of political Implications." It is believed the Senate committee will vote on the confirmation early next week and will then place the matter before the Senate as a Whole for their final approval.

Drofessor of I economics, who was chosen by the i themselves. 6Cont:nued From ij Page One U "Wilson's vice president for two terms, back when we had a Democratic Party north of the Mason - Dixon line. His little observation was: "What this country needs is a good five cent cigar.' ' Well brother, he hit the Jackpot with that one. Nobody remembers what two hour harangue in Congress brought forth this gem of wisdom. Polks just remember that once there was a man in Washington who was able to express what they were thinking. They didn't remember another thing he ever said. If somebody down there now would get off his quiver about impending world disaster long enough ti discover that the American people again need a good five cent cigar, the country would begin to believe that he'd heard that one about charity beginning at home. The folks who are asked to give away their shirts can't get a house to live in. To build one costs more than they can save in two generations. They can't get a lamb chop dinner for less than a half day's work. They can't get a few sheets of plywood to build a hen house or a Chic Sale. A kid's junk yard jalopy costs more than the. family sedan that toted him to be christened. If they've got a house they can't keep it wanp. If they do get fuel it costs what they used to pay for 100 proof Bourbon. And it ain't temporary, say the big - wigs. It's going to last two or three years, they say also meat and wheat shortage and pants too. How comforting! Boy, we sure have a swell bunch of economists running the show, Bureaus enough to turn the Sahara into a hotel; buearucrats and experts enough to deliver the votes and nothing much else. They can't get fuel oil to the East Coast, but a cross - roads guy fwm way up in York state .can go with a tank truck and bring back all you need at 25 cents a gallon. We get offered a swell break. Forty bucks! To lure the votes of little suckers who don't know that their income tax is the lowest tax they pay. That on top of it ' are hidden taxes which total 31 cents of every dollar that finally does get Into their pay envelope. That's where the inflation is. Nearly one third of the dough we get goes to sweeten the tax collectors' kitty. Manufacturers get stuck worse: 60 cents to them. And up go prices. All : the schemers can stav m juui,, io ihe luiie oi mree millions of them, against 50(1,000 pre - New Deal. In soft, well paid Jobs, to tinker up new ways to squander the people's money. Inflation would be cracked; high prices would start down; home building would start up; nest eggs could be saved; there would be plenty to share with those who suffer and there'd be lots for George Marshall's grab bag if the people could get one of Tom Marshall's good five cent cigars. But it'll never happen with so many noses in the public trough; nor by trying tb tax the people into deflation. Taxes and government waste have got to come down first.
