The kingmakers had selected two Easterners, Lodge and Smith of j New Jersey,. together with one i Midwesterncr, Hlckenloopor of! Iowa, as new members of this vital Committee. This brought .an 1m- 1 mediate protest from Morse, "I consider It strange," he said, "that you have given seats to three men from the relative East and not one seat to the Pacific Coast, Apparently you Ignore the fact that we on the Pacific face great problems with the Japanese and Chinese, and that one important phase of the war was fought from our shores. "If you think that is the way to bring harmony to the Republican party," continued the gentleman from Oregon, "by ignoring one great segment of the party, then 1; serve notice right now that I In-j tend to stand up and fight for the j Pacific Coast." Tuft Protest!* At this point. Senator Taft argued that Lodge was entitled to a post on the Foreign Relations Cornmittce since he had resigned from the Senate to go to* war, thus losing hi^ seniority rights. "I want to make it clear," replied Morse, "that 1 have no objection to Mr, Lodge, I think he is eminently qualified to servo. But the time to have settled *hls wan In the mooting of the Steering Committee' when aerator Toboy proposed restoring Mr. Lodge's seniority rights. I was in complete agreement with Senator Tobey, but It \vas Mr. Lodge himself whowith- drew his seniority claims and you gentleman npplauded his withdrawal, That decision should stand. "I'm not usklnp for the vacancy myself," Morse concluded. "Tf any other Western Republican hfe.8 more seniority, the post should go- to him. But the West Is entitled to. representation." However, the well-oiled kinffmnk-1 cm' machine was functioning perfectly. On a vote, the Oregon Senator \vns overwhelmingly turned down. ' After the vote, forthright -kingmaker Vanden-bcrg, who i.s Chairman of the new Foreign Relations Committee, ro«o half-apologetinally to say: • : . "I want to explain my votfl. It was Influenced by the fact that tho Committee's report is alneady printed and has been circulated for some time. We can't change it now.

" .The''quotas for| the twenty-one member countries of the PAU are determined oh'a population basis. In the case of the United States, this includes all territories and possessions, making an annual contribution of just under $300,000. When the Philippines gainc'd full independence, last July 4, this should have lopped 17,000,000 persona off the total population figure on which, the U. S-. quota is computed, reducing the assessment by about $40,000. However, this item was overlooked un-til too late. By the time the Bureau of the Budget caught up with it, the quota based on the population of the Philippines already had been paid.

On the other hand, The Connecticut Light and Power Company, while keeping its rates as low as possible, in 1945 paid $3,217,000 in taxes to the federal government.
