The News, Frederick, Md., Friday. I»fc«mber 7, 1901 10-Cent Pay Jury Probes Phone Charge Is Proposed BALTIMORE, Dec. B WP) -- The question of 10-cents charges for calls from pay telephones popped up before the Public Service Commission again today. Commission Chairrran John H. Hessey brought the subject up in the course of a hearing on a _telephone company request that it be allowed to charge higher rates. - Hessey explained tnat the 10-cent coin-box was not mentioned in the company's formal application for higher rates, but that a press release at the time indicated that; such a charge would be sought, Hessey asked E. Edward McLean, chief auditor for the commission, to estimate the effect of a 10-cent charge from pay phones and report back by next Thursday. Caused Revenue Loss * McLean -said he had asked the company to investigate the result where 10-cent pay-phone charges have been put into effect, and had learned that the 10-cent charge had resulted in 25 to 35 per cent reduction in revenues. Earlier, McLean said the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Co. would have a net income of $7,233,286 during the year ending Sept. 30, 1952. without any increase in rates. Such a return, he said, would give the company a return of 6 18 per cent on its investment in the state By revising its debt structure, McLean added thai the net income could be increased to 57.972,834, a return of 6.82 per cent. Much attention has been directed at the rate base, or estimated value of the company's investment ·and equipment, at the present hearing. Such a base is used to determine "whether the company is getting a fair return. McLean estimated the correct rate base at $116,591,886. The company has estimated the reproduction cost of its' equipment at between $141,101,581 and $145.600,130. Opponents of the proposed rate increase, which would add about $4,610,000 a year to company revenues, are being heard by the PSC in sessions this week. The company presented evidence to support its plea for the rate increase last September and October. Story Told By Teitelbaum WASHINGTON, Dec. 6 OP)--Attorney General McGrath todaj launched a grand jury investiga tion into Abraham Teitel baum's charges that two men, claiming friendship with Federal officials tried to shake him down for $500,000 with promises of a "tax fix." Teitelbaum, a wealthy Chicago lawyer, told his sensational story to House tax probers .Tuesday. He swore that Frank Nathan and Bert K. Naster led him to believe that they knew of a Washington clique which was on the lookout for "soft touches" like him, and that for half a million they could "make it easy" for him. The story has been denied vigorously. Last night Rep. King i.D- Calif). chairman of the House Waj;s and Means subcommittee conducting the inquiry, ordered a transcript of the testimony, including charges and denials, sent to the Justice Department for possible perjury prosecutions. McGrath announced today: "I have issued instructions this morning that all the testimony, reports and investigative materials of the King subcommittee relating to the Teitelbaum-Menkin-Nalhan- Naster allegations be obtained immediately. To Be Given Grand Jury "We have also been in communication with United States Attorney Charles Irelan (of the District o£ Columbia' and have requested that this matter be presented to a grand jury within the next ten days," The Menkin mentioned in McGrath's statement is Mrs. Shyrl Menkin, an attractive divorcee of Chicago and Miami, who supported the main parts of Teitelbaum's story. She is a friend of Teitel- Defense Output Lag Is Denied WASHINGTON. Dec. 8 (fP--A joint Senate-House committee today accused a Senate subcommittee of "crying wolf" in reporting a dangerous lag in the nation's defense mobilization program. The joint committee commend ed top Government officials foi performing "an outstanding job o: defense mobilization." Sharply challenging the sub' committee's note of alarm -- bui agreeing there have been "lags in certain lines" of defense production--the joint committee said in a report: "Your committee can not reasonably conclude that the nation Caudle was ousted by Mr. Tru-i h a s failed to maintain its mini- man November 16 for "outside ac- mum m i l itary strength in an ef- tivities" deemed incompatible with l f o r t to place b "tter before guns.' - - - - - The somewhat rare spectacle of one Congressional committee quar- baum's. Nathan said h* kn«w her as "Mrs. T«ltelb»um." Nathan, a former Pittsburgh promoter, made a categorical denial of the shakedown story yesterday. He told the King committee it was "a dirty, filthy lie." Two names mentioned by T«itol- toaum as members of the alleged Washington clique were those of Charles Oliphant, chief counsel for the Internal JRovcnue Bureau, and T. Lamar Caudle, formerly an Assistant Attorney General in charge of tax fraud prosecutions for the Justice Department. Both men have denied any connection with the alleged plot. Oliphant resigned yesterday, telling President Truman he was the target of "attacks, vilification, rumor and innuendo beyond the point of human endurance." McGrath Not Re*i?nin* his official duties. Just before he announced th grand jury probe today, McGrat expressed complete confidence i: the integrity of the Government' l*gal staff. Speaking to a meetin of the Federal Bar Association, h defied those interested in specia nfluence to try and tempt Federa "awyers from their duty. McGrath attended the meeting t accept the first lapel button in membership renewal drive. Then his voice hard, he said: "Let this button be a sym sol to all of tne Teitelbaums, the Nathans, the Nasters and the Men tins, that we arc unapproachable by their low and filthy position in ociety." His audience rose cheering a: he Attorney General declared he lad no intention of giving up his abinet post. CHRISTMAS MOVIE A movie entitled "Holy Night' will be shown at Mt.

The subcommittee, ,headed by Senator Lyndon B. Johnson (D- Tcx), has a "watchdog" assignment to keep an eye on the mooilization effort. The other group is the Sena- House defense production committee, headed by Senator Maybank (D-SO.

The Msybank committee, reporting on its own survey of the mobilization picture, conceded that "many improvements could and should be made in the rate" of defense production, but it said: "The committee refuses to be alermed at the unconfirmed reports of failures to maintain a minimum of national safety." A committee aide said this was a direct allusion to the Johnson sub-committee's critical report, which the Senate-House group Itself did not mention by name. Moreover, the Senate - House committee said it agreed unanimously that Defense Mobilizer Charles E. Wilson and other top defense planners should be commended for having accomplished "the unprecedented feat of striking a happy medium between military preparedness and a healthy national economy in a colossal war of nerves." TWIN SIRENS MARTINSBURG, W. Va., Dec. 6 (/P)--Two sirens ordered recently by the Martinsburg Fire Department will serve a dual purpose: they will be used for both fire and civil defense alerts.

Salvaged Bones Needed For Surgical Work LOS ANGELES, Dec. 6, W~Bones salvaged quickly from accident victims and from operating rooms could prevent a lot of pain and disfigurement for people who need bone Krafts, two Los Angeles doctors reported today. Extra bone Is needed in cases where joints are badly mangled, in instances where a section of bone has to be taken out because of disease or where lengthening has to be done. They also are useful in fracture cases that heal too slowly and in patients where even normal healing may mean long weeks of pain or disability. This calls for more bone banks, Dr. G. Mosser Taylor and Dr. Vernon L. Nickel of the College of Medical Evangelists told the Amer- can Medical Association. There are several bone banks in existence but they are too few, Taylor and Nickel said. This means a "niggardly" use of material in many eases where there could havt been plenty ot It. Frequently the extra bone is taken from some other part of the patient's own body. This requires ·· -""ond operation am it oncn leaves an unsightly ··- · -nd more pain during recuperation. Unlike flesh fc.m... .jne graft material does not have to come from the patient himself or some near relative. Flesh grafts taken from other individuals usxially will not "take." However, in the case of bone the HIGHEST QUALITY TE3UVCO FUEL OIL AND KEROSENE STUP-CROWTHER, INC TELEPHONE 2783 graft acts only as a framework an repository for bone-building mir erals which will be deposited b the patient's system during th healing process.
