However, they still have their ringers crossed. Too many "new brooms" have i-ome into the State Department before.

This was a Panuch proposal. How to I'.riinn 1,000,001) Pooplu T'hough G.O.P. Congrcsswia-n John Tabor of New York and Harold Knutson of Minnesota boasted that governnunt porionnol could bo reduced''by- 1,000,000. employes, neither congroEsman was able to answer the $64 question'• a* io wihcrc'' the pai-sonnel .cuts!-could' be made. The- question was lengthily debated at the closed meeting of the joint budget .vwmrilttec, but no-body could answer It, Taber -h-arped at -length on public relations employes throughout •t'he poVfirnmd>nlt—''propagandists," ho c-allcd them—wtho should bn purged at once from the payroll. But, outside of that, -he and Knutson had-tittle to offer the committee. At one point, DomocratT? Congressman John Dingcll of Michigan broke in on the Now York Republican: • •"All right. I'm wllllag-to be educated," 'he said, "I don't want any noncssential employ*) sponging on the taxpayers. But suppose you tell us whore all of them arc." Most of them arc in the Wur Department," replied Taber. "How about all those civilian employes with our occupation lorcee overseas? There are about 300,000, I understand." ' Taber held- that the 300,000, mostly war veterans, should be discharged and replaced by citizens of occupied countries, who could be recruited without pay. "Why not put some of the poo- pic in occupied countries to work BO they can earn their keep?" Taber demanded. Put NnzJs to Work "Do I understand the gentleman" inquired Dlngell acidly. 'Does he want the United States Army to employ aliens?" Committee colleagues roarod while the New Yorker groped for a reply. Dingell 'went on to explain that most of the civilian overseas jobs, including military government work, had ; to be filled by "tried and true" Americans for accurlty reasons. , "Well, I suppose we have to have our own- people in some of tlicse jobs," grumbled Taber, "but I still think we ought to get some work out of these citizens in tho occupied areas. We are keeping a lot of them for nothing." Representative Alert Gore of Tenncsaee and other Democrats also objected to the Taber-Knutson "meat-ax" approach to personnel trimming. "The Army, Navy and Veterans Administration will make reductions as swiftly as possible without coercion," one of them declared. "We can't do the job now with a meat-ax without crippling the government and at a risk 'to security in some cases." Budget Director James Webb expressed the same view. He testified that Veterans Administrator Omar Bradley already had been cut below his personnel requirements to handle the vast flow of service insurance business, G. I. terminal leave applications and hospital maintenance. "Well, where can cuts be made?" said Knutson. "Give us some clues. You are in a position to know about such things." Taber, Rep. Dan Reed of New York,~and -Sen.'Eugene Milllkenvof Colorado joined In the demands for "clues" from Webb, but the budget director refused to be put on the spot. He contended that his bureau makes a practice oC keeping a close check on the payrolls of federal departments and agencies and recommends cuts wherever Weaving To Speak At Prospec| Fire Dept.

These recommendations al- wnys have been followed, he said. However, Knutson et al continued to ,pump the budget director like a police witness withholding information. Finally Tennessee's Congressman Gore angrily • demanded a halt. "It is not within- Mr. Webb's province to answer questions like that," he declared. "This is a legislative problem* It is up to us, not the budget bureau, to determine whore personnel reductions can and should be made." (Copyright, 19-17, by the Bell Syndicate, Inc.)
