TAOF, 2—NAUGATUCK NEWS (CONN.). FRIDAY. JAN. SI, 1M7 DREW PEARSON r^. ON c The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Truman Doesn't Agree That Housing Program Has Broken Down; Stresses His "Two Big Jobs"; Long-Distance Distribution Of TVA Power Will Be Congressional Hot Potato XViisliiiii^lon—President. Tninuin still doesn't .seem to rejli/.t.' tluit the ronl .heart was taken out of the veterans housing program when he pushed Wilson "Wyatt to the sidelines, in, fact he became quite provoked ut American Veterans Committee chairman Charles Bolte last week when the question of housing came up. Truman had asked the AVO leader what veterans are currently talking aliout and got the answer that the veterans were disillusioned, particularly about tho housing program, with 4,000,000 veterans Jiving doubled up bc- cnuse of the housing shortage. 'Bolte added they arc pretty disilliisioned about the entire breakdown. Angrily, Truman interrupted. '[•[ hasn't broken down." he said. "Tt'M not fuir to say. that it has. We have to carry It out In n free market. I did everything I could to keep pi'icfiH down. It wasn't I who rained the prices. It was the Congress." Later in the discussion Truman gave his cisitor.t a clue that hu might not want to remnin in the White House after 10-18. "[ have only two big jobs." he said. "Tho first is to keep the world peaceful, the second is to get the productive machinery of this country running smoothly." Will TVA Light HriHiklynV Senator Warren Magrutson of Washington nuidi; a st.-u'tlin« prediction to PresUIrnt Truman during an nfl'-tho-i-i-cord Whito [louse (•onl'errnrr- last week whr-n he indicated that e.loctrir [lower from the Tonnfssoe Valley might bo used in Washington, Philadelphia or Now York. Mugnuson, who urges more Government power projects, especially in tho Northwest, told Trtfman that I'loetric energy from those projects sonn could be distributed all river tho country. "The ability to transmit hydroelectric power scientifically nnd chc-Jiply at great distant-OS is fast hecomin',' R reality," «n:d the Washington Senator. "H's a question of .progress that has to bo met and wo j-.hould ln>giii laylni; tin.-groundwork nnw fur our hat ties in Con- gross." he added. nuson explained, was tho cost factor. At prsaent, the construction of booster statons to transmit power from a project like TVA is expensive and makes the cost of long-range transmission prohibitive. "However, we arc in a position where we can lick this problem •through KCientfiic Improments in tho booster system," Magnuson continued. "It won't be very long until we are able to distribute power. over grca't distances at relatively cheap rates to consumers. "In other words, -hydroelectric dont. "Eventually 4t will moan cheap power for consumers every where, not 'just In certain sections and I'am sure a great many .members of Congress will svipport such a program, Truman promloed to back 'Magmison's light Cor appropriations but it remains to bo seen it' ho is still oC that opinion when this hot pototo is dropped on Congress amid screams of "socialism" by Eastern Republicans.

"You don't have to sell me on that," replied Truman. "I . am aware that this question of power distribution Is one of the most vital problems we have goi tu face. Il would only be false economy for us to over-I.iok the potentialities of our hydroelectric resources. "We have only begun to harness thorn for tho f?oo;l of the whole country," the President added. Bc'th mcr. agreed it was a Federal job ;that the construction of additional d:ims and booster networks was too big and costly for private industry. However, they al- sj agreed that power trust opposition in Congress woulil make tho eios like tho Associated Press from the anti-trust laws, while Senator Reed of Kansas would exempt the railroads.

"Well, I am convinced that WL- can triple or quadruple the distance of power transmission from 'those public hydro'olc'ctrJc pro- Ji'sts n.i no greater co^t to Government," Magnu.son told the Prcsl- Thc American Embassy in Madrid reports that General Franco ordered a national 'holiday to honor the arrival of the new Argentine Ambassador. Franco was elated because o fthis proof that the Argentine Government will not comply with the United Nations to with, draw their Ambassadors from Madrid, Pcron's answer was to send a new Ambassador to Franco.
