Gabriol- i and William M. Boyle Jr., Ms one time Democratic counterpart, engaged in activities "bound to lead to charges of impropriety," Senator Hocy (B-NC) said the f i n d i n g s were approved " u n a n i - mously hy the four Democrats and three Republicans of the subcommittee he heads. Neither Boyle nor Gabrielson was accused of any illegality. The rcpru t denounced the American Lithofold Corporation, 5t. Louis p r i n t i n g firm, for p.iy- ng fees to Boyle, several gnvrrn- nent officials and others in high ilaces, and giving them costly l i f t s and "lavish entertainment," Jt recommended thai "the government should be guarded in ;iny urther business w i t h American .Ithofolri.or any other company vhlch engages in currupting prac- Iccs," and that "any firm or in- d i v i d u a l who seeks lo bring improper influence to bear on government departments or who has a background of influence seeking should he haired from f u r t h e r ! business with the government." | Emphasizing it did not accuse Boyle of anything "illegal or im- mornl," it added: "Mr. Boyle's conduct was not such that It would dispel the ap- pcnrfincc of wrongdoing." Lays Down I'rhtrinle j The subcommittee reported "no evidence of Improper influence" by Gabriclsun in representing one in the lending agency. It said the facts were that on February 28, 1049--after the agency had for a second time refused io lend money Io Lithofold --Boyle called the then BFC rhairrmin, Harley Hise, and arranged for Mice to talk with Lithofold officials the following day. The meeting was held, it said, and "less than three days later" Lllhofold got the first $80,- 00ft of loans which ultimately totaled $565,000, although the HFC ;taff had opposed loaning to the firm. Boyle at tin; lime was drawing $500 n month retainer fees from Lithofold and was a non-salaried official in the Democratic headquarters. The circumstances, it said, "give to the reasonable assumption t h a t the loan would not have been made but for the telephone - c a l l j from Mr. Boyle." The report criticized as "unbusi- nesslike and unprofessional" the wile of Boyle's law practic to Max Siskind, his former law associate in Washington, and Lithofold's employment of Siskind a f t e r Boylo q u i t its payroll. ! Contention Not Accepted ! In its f i n d i n g on Gabrielson the I subcommittee said: 'Although there is no evidence of improper influence by Mr. Ca- briclson in connection with his relationships with the RFC, his contention that as c h a i r m a n of the Republican National Committee he has no i n f l u e n c e cannot be accepted. "There is nothing intrinsically wrong with Mr. Gabrielsoh rcnrc- senting his client before the HFC. However, this subcommittee' docs not believe it is in the interest of good government for paid or unpaid officials of cither national committee to handle m n t - icrs before government agencies in those cases in which they arc receiving ;. salary or a fee." It called attention to a public s t a t e m e n t Oabriclr.on had issued concerning his relations with the HFC.

Court Preceedings In the Washington C o u n t y Chancery Court: F. R. Miller vs Delia Miller: Decree of divorce. By SAM DAWSON New York-(/Pj-Stcclmcn say Elect Inventories are growing rapidly. Some lypM of products will snnn bo in the surplus class, they say. Union leaders are joining mF.nafiement in socking early decontrol oT the industry. The sudden b u i l d u p of inventories come.-; from two things: J. Steel production is now running 55,000 tons a week more than a year ajjo and 268,000 tons a week more t h a n two years ago. 2. An new cutback in the amount of n.etal t h a t can be used in civilian goods production comes just as many steel u^ers find that steel deliveries arc starting to pour in. The result is, industry leaders ;ny, t h a t many steel users are finding themselves with larger invent ories of steel on hand t h a n :he National Production Authority rules permit. Orders Come In Fawt Steel users under these rules can have only 45 days supply. But many of them report that since the first of the year steel they had ordered previously has begun to come in at a fast ryte. Last fall it usually took months to get a steel order filled. The steel industry m?rle enough steel in the .la^'l 14 months so t h a t nine percent of all steel* shipped ended up in users' inventories, according to Bennett S. Chappie, Jr.. assistant executive vice president of U. S. Steel. "Most declines in :-:teel demand have been preceded by an excessive buildup of consumers inventories," he warns, "The storm warnings arc flying." President William Green of the American Federation of Labor .-:ay.i the supply of steel "is approaching adequacy." .He asked Charles E. Wilson, defense mobilization director, to l i f t controls as soon as supplies arc adequate. Wilson recently said the steel industry was over the h u m p and t h a t the end of the shortage on many steel products was in sight. Tn Study Situation NPA has asked its aleel product* industry advisory committee ti name a group 'to study the s'itua lion with a view .to recommend inc decontrol nf steel products found in good supply. Hot all steel executives agrei with Chappie, apparently. Offi date of Wheeling Steel believe thi demand for their products wil exceed their capacity through out this year. I n l a n d Steel excca tives say "full operations of ou, available furnace capacity for the first half of 1952 seems assured. 1 But I n l a n d notes a sharp decline in demand for customers. . Jn South Bond, Ind., Sludebaker Corporation is planning to lay off IS per cent of its 20,000 workers lo bring its production in Jine with government curbs on car output. In Detroit, a u t o executives toki an NPA inquiry group the besl way to relieve unemployment was to hike car production quotas fo the months just ahead.
