THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round By DREW PEARSON Washington-- Dan Bolich, the No. 2 tax collector who bought $31 shirts and developed a special taite for $3. .10 monngrammed handkerchiefs, pleaded poverty when he testified secretly before congressional Investigator*. Later, when Bollch was called to a public session of the King Tax-fraud Subcommittee, he refused to answer on the ground of self-lncrlm- inatlun, But before he knew that committee- prnbers had the goods on him, he' testified freely In private. This column has now obtained a capy of the secret cross-examination. ; ' Two and a half years ago. this columnist, attempting to expose scandals in Internal Revenue, pointed to Bollch (December 17, 1949) as an acquaintance of Gambler Frankle Costello and told how Balled had Killed prosecution of the biggest fax-fraud case against Los Angeles gamblers-the Guaranty Finance Company, Another column told how Bellch intervened to prevent prosecution In a 11,000,000 tax case against Mid-Continent Petroleum. This was the depuly commissioner of Internal revenue, later revealed to have . spent ih five years $(1,000 more than his government salary. * * * Grilled secretly under oath, however, he talked freely but mentioned no monogrammed shirts or handkerchiefs. "I am really behind the eight ball financially," he pleaded. "There Is no doubt but that living In Washington I overextended myself f i n a n - cially, and the net result of It Is that I am quite Inclined to question as to whether it was worth wen the Inconvenience us well as the financial Ion'," lollch also explained his friendship with the mysterious Carl Routzshn. 73. Mansfield, Ohio, merchant, who paid Bollch $400 a month- totaling over $30,000. ., "He mouttahnl was a very old and dear friend of the family's and m.v narticular benefactor." fhe blg'tax collector told the investiga- tory. "Mr. »ni) Mrs. Houtzahn had no children. Ani after her death, Mr. Routzan'n made an ar- rqniement with Mrs. Bollch and I t h a t he would hav» a home with u$ for life and coulcl have use of nil of the facilities Oat ari? ours . . . The commitment w(s m$dc, not' in writint.:but mora'lv binding and forever will be. that Mr. Routzahn will. have a home with us, which he rioes have." But. in nubile session, he refused to talk ·bout hll elderly friend and financial ansel. "Have you any other indebtedn««?" d n m n n d ed Afent George Lumav. a'ler Bollch said he owed flouttahn 112.000 to *l!!ODn. "Only to Mr. Hout7.ahn." reollH Bollch.

The. inV«»tle,ators also Inquired about th? notorloui $250.000 Patu'llo Modes case. Bollch refused to co'njment on the case in public session. but »ijmltt*ij to Investigator.! that he had ruled ·gainst criminal tjroseciltlon. "My. best recollection of that particular case Is my connection with It ai assistant' commissioner." recalled Bollch. "That has to do with the attorneys for the taxpayer, Mr, Saver and Mr. QUlnn, coming Into m.v office in Washlneton and preientlnR th4 case from their noint of view and from what I still t h i n k may hp the facts; as a result or which 1 advised them to offer to coon- crate fully . . . And'that 1 would. suggest to the New York office that it be Riven nonprosecution conslderttlon. And t h a t I did." * * * "·efore you gave Mr. Saver and Mr. Quinn the fssurfticc about no prosecution, did you check the case with the people in New York?" fired Lemay. "I checked with Mr. Baraclcl. and lie said that hi could rule t h a t technically it was not a voluntary disclosure," admitted the cx-asslstant commissioner. In other words, Bolich overruled the New; York, off ice, which had claimed there had been no voluntary disclosure in the Patullo Modes case, hence criminal prosecution should have been pressed. "Is there any other case t h a n Patullo Modes in which you have made a ruling of no prosecution?" asked another Investigator, Stanley Surrey. "The answer Is yes, that on at least two other occasions. I havp Interceded on behalf 'of counsel with the field officers to see whether or not it couldn't be arranged to make the dis- They'll Do It Every Time -- By Jimmy Hatlo IrJ A OAY CQ4CM P.

What Price Wage Increase? closure and to offer the complete cooperation of the taxpayer, with the understanding that it would be given nonprosecution consideration," Bollch testified. He described one case as thq GoerinR Products case, didn't identify the other, and wasn't pressed for details by the investigators. Chief Counsel Adrian do Wind finally asked him: "Would you please state the circumstances .surrounding your resignation as assistant commissioner." "I communicated w i t h (then) Commissioner Schoencman and told him I was not going to be able to go the l i m i t In what wns t u r n i n g out to be pretty fast baseball, clue to my health, and I would appreciate it if he would select somebody else for the post and give me a quieter as- signment," explained Bolich. ' . "That is the whole story?" demanded De Wind. "That is the whole story," declared Bolich. The investigators, however, later found it was only a small fraction of the story. BT WALTER Questions And Answers Q--What scientist proved that life, cannot come from lifeless-things? A--Louis Pasteur. .Q--Which general of the Civil War led his men on horseback even though he had only one' arm? t A--General Philip Kearny, who lost an arm in the Mexican War. In the choice of General Eisenhower's successor as supreme commander, it is important not only to choose the right man but to choose him 'in the right way. The wrong way to go about choosing him is to talk and .act as if the post of supreme commander in Europe were an American property--like being chief of staff of the Army--to be administered by the Pentagon and the White House. It is true, indeed self-evident, that General Eisenhower's successor will have to be an American officer. There is no argument about this. In the world as it is the French could not be happy serving under a British supreme commander and vice versa. Nor could the Americans who, along with the Canadians, are the farthest .from home, feel happy under a supreme commander whose personal ties were with a particular European country. But just because he is bounci to be an American, it is most im- lortant that he should be called to the command by the Allies rather than that he should be sent to them by Washington. This is a case where the formalities and the substance are indistinguishable. A good man, no matter how good, -could find that lis task had been made impossible for him if he were given the wrong kind of start It is a good- idea to remember lhat the appointment of General Eisenhower himself was made in response to strong and insistent appeals from Europe. The administration, very rightly and wisely, Seated his appointment as an American contribution to the common eaitse, as one of the things we could give which our Allies lad decided they needed. And General Eisenhower, himself, far 'rom being a candidate for the post, had to be convinced that he vas being drafted. This is the right precedent. For he relations between the American supreme commander and the European peoples, with their governments and not least of all with the European corps of officers, is delicate, subtle and difficult. The relation will be most wholesome and effective if the Europeans have had a part in selecting him, if there is no suggestion that he I has been appointed to rule over them. * · * If anyone thinks that this is ·»· 19SZ ky NtA S*nk*, IM.~ T UB Kendall D e t e c t i v e . Agency was not bustling ·with activity. In fart, it was not bustling w i t h anything and George Kendall was sadly iconleniplalmg b n n k r u ploy 'and the eighty-second floor of ithe Kmpire Slate Building. jHe was seated in a swivel chnir facing the window, his feel propped on the sill. i "Maybe .1 should've oeen p l u m b e r , " he said dejectedly. "Somebody always needs a plumber. But farming is really the life." Verna Denton, his secretary and Girl Friday, closed the steno- graph!; pad in which she had-teen . doodling. ' "Cheer up, boss." She rested her .hand on hli shoulder. "Maybe lomeoqdy'U get murdered." This, he found 'of little consolation. He particularly avoided tommy guns, gangsters and missing bodies, leaving these to the more gallant and heroic species of public and private detectives. He considered, himself physically capable of protecting himself, but there was no sens. ir. flirtine with lead pipe* and sawcd-off shotguns ff you didn't have to. "Verha, do you realize we haven't nibbled on a client for ,over three weeks? Honest, kid. I'm about ready to throw in the ; towel and go back to milking i cows." I "That's the trouble with you ' boss," she said, beginning to mas- !sage his shoulders. "Things get a 'little tough and right away you ' want to fold up." , He spun the swivel chair around ;and faced her. "A little tough! .They couldn't get any tougher. 'clients, we're a month behind in our rent, we owe a* two-month phone bill, and we've got one foot in the bread line." She opened her compact^'Dldn't Emerson or somebody say that Into every life a little rain must fall?" "Don't drag out those corny proverbs. Besides, this is a cloudburst." He pulled a slip of paper out of his coat pocket. "Look at this. Our n*i profit for six months is a minus one U-ousand three hundred and fourteen dollars." "And three cents." She moistened her eyebrows. "There was postage due on thnt farm catalog you ordered." "Yeah, nnd you paid it." Ho watched her as she deftly applied the Upstick and ne felt a little angry with himself (or not nos- srsunc some deeper feeling for .her. He hadn't paid her any salary for two weeks and by now he suspected that ner staying with the sinking ahip amounted to more thai) loyalty. He admired her jet black hair, the prominent dark eyei. ner lull mouth and all the gnoa things that went with It, but the admiration wan only lukewarm. Perhapi, he thought, he "Things conldn't be any toucher. No cllenU mnt we're get «M ' fool In the bread line." was getting prematurely old. CUDDENLY. they both heard the '·' door of the outer office open and shut. Verna shoved the compact into her skirt pocket and hurried to the outer office. Meanwhile. George Kendall grabbed a batch of papers and assumed a sudden spirit of industry. In a second, Vcma was back. "Mr. Kendall, a Mr. Sutworth to see you." "Does he have an appointment?" He winked at the girl. "No, Mr. Kendall." "Well--." He hesitated, and hen raising his voice slightly, he said, "We'll try to squeeze him In, Miss Denton. Send him m." Presently the doorway framed a short, puffy-looking man in his sixties and wearing a black over- coot and derby hm. His face was lushed and he seemed out of jrcnth. "Mr. Kendall?" Yes, do come In." He came 'rom behind his desk and greeted he old man with a worm handshake. When tje nxd helped the man off with his coat, George drew ip n chair. "Just moke yourself comfortable, Mr, Soulhworth." 'Sutworth," the old mnn corrected. "Albert I'. Sutworth." If ENDALL settled Into the swivel **· chair nnd clasped his hands across his stomach. The happy ccllng of officialdom had returned and he found it difficult to contain lis enthusiasm. With' the agency the rocks, he found Mr. Albert Sutworth a most welcome Individual. Beginning hll uiual pep talk, he Mid, "Before we begin, Mr. Sut- worth, let me say lhat you are among friends. You can put your complete confidence .in our little! agency and don't ever forget our; motto: Your problem is our prob-! lem." ·That's very comforting to know; Mr. Kendall I feel better already." Verna, who had been standing in the doorway, shook her bead raj mock disgust and quietly close* the door, leaving the two men alone. "Well now that we have your confidence, how can we help you?" "It's about my daughter. Mar- ilyn." The lines In his forehead deepened, · · « "rjAUGHTEBS are pur speclal- ty," Kendall said reassuringly. "Suppose 'you start from the beginning and tell us just -what she's done." "It isn't what sheVdone that has me worried." He stroked his white hair with a trembling hand. "It's what she might do.** "And what might that be?" "I'm afraid she's going to get married,? he answered. "Is that so terrible?" "In this case, yes. She has some ridiculous notion that she's in love with Chief Big Bear and I'm certain that he's nothing but an unscrupulous fortune hunter. He op-| crates a gymnasium--." i Who*. Let's s l o w down,"! George said. "What did you say the name at this person was?" "Chief Big Bear and, Mr. Kendall, he's much elder than Marilyn." He slimmed hit flit on the! desk. "I don't care how you do! It, but this fortune hunter has 1*4 be stopped." (To He OmttmeO much ado about nothing, it is because he has not yet realized how far from solid, how nervous, how brittle, are ou/ present relations with Europe. This bears closely upon .the choice of the supreme commander. The great masses of the people of Europe do not take it as settled and certain that along with our power and our wealth and our generosity, we also know all about leading a worlcT- wide coalition and that they can confidently trust their destiny to our decisions. The new supreme eommander, being an American, will not be accepted just because he is ah American, He will have to earn his acceptance. I do not think we can afford to disregard the hint, thrown out with a certain studied casualness by "The Economist" that "Europe is willing to accept from the Generalissimo of the liberating armies of 1945 the kind of leadership that would hive been, resented coming from anyone else." In those few words from what is the most firmly" pro-American of the independent voices in Europe, our Allies have, as it were, said a mouthful. · '* « · 7n the context of 'these comments It should be possible to say, without being misunderstood, why. it. would be · mistake to propose General Ridgway for NATO. There is only one trouble with General Ridgway: It is that he would be, Soing from Japan to Europe, from seine the supreme commander of the occupation of a conquered Country to being the supreme" ·ommanfler of a new venture in international coopention. General Ridgway is a briiliam? soldier and, judged by what he · did after the disaster at the Yula, le may well be the greatest of all iving American field command-, ers. He has been also a discreet and proper pfo-consul in Japan, h this role of U.N. commander he las been respectful of the United/ Nations but not over-iealous, let us say, in making the other United- Nations feel that they ar.e represented and have a part in the making of United Nations' olicy. This is not the right background from which to come to a post where it is of the very essence of :he supreme commander's work- o refute the accusations, to allay .he suspicions, that NATO means American military domination of satellite Europe. Dear Miss Dix: How can I make a. boy interested in me? He is, like myself, a senior in high school. I know his mother and sister very well and get along beautifully with them. My - would-be beau, however, never . seems -to know I'm around. One of our teachers told us it was u p . to the girl to go after a boy who is too bashful. Do you agree? I've never chased a boy and think he should do the pursuing. BEA Answer: By all means, go after your prey! If girls simply sat with folded hands waiting for men. to make the first move--not to mention . the follow-up--m a r r.i a g e license bureaus would be almost out of business. The trick, of course, is to chase the man, but make him think he's doing the pursuing. A little subtlety, some finesse here- and there and your purpose is accomplished. Leap Year provides a golden opportunity for the aggressive female, and woe to the boy who wants to retire into a shell and stay there. Spring is here, and with it the traditional round of dances and outings. Many of these- affairs arc sponsored as Leap Year parties, with the girls inviting boys. If no organization in your community is sufficiently wide-awake to kelp the girls out,.why ijot have such a pa.rty yourself,? Or induce your church group .or soh?e civic club to have one? With the object · of your affection as your guest for the evening, you'll have 'plenty of time to impress him with your charms. If you have the party at · your house, the role of. a gracious hostess offers a rare chance 'to be beguiling. If the boy has a special talent or hobby, develop a terrific io- terest in the subject--even if it's raising white mice! Nothing flatters a male as much as to have someone snare his enthusiasm o n ' a favorite topic. Senior year is .a time for particular achievement. II your friend is the recipient of any. senior honor, offer him warm congratulations; if he is in line for special awards, or anything of that sort, let him know you're on his side. Opportunities for making him notice you are not lacking, but . you must be on the lookout for every one and make the most of each chance. Don't be obvious; just show interest! Seldom can , anyone resist a friendly overture- We all like to have others like us, and often waste valuable time, and friendship, waiting for the other fellow to make the advances.
