M. fUHUOA SUWIUIT No matter how worth-while the service it proposes to establish every new government enterprise starts off with u certain fault —• the suspicion of the taxpayers that government agencies juggle their *»& operating figures to hide how little of the cost is covered by fees and how much by federal taxes. ,We have a direct Accusation by the House Subcorr ittee on the Study of Public Wou. on this very point. December i0 ihe committee crifri-Jd the Southwestern Power Administration lor scaling down • the power-cost factor in federal dams in Arkansas and neighboring states, un arbitrary action design;/ |r>ed to justify SPA's cheap trans- ;, '•mission rates "to:-KtiA'""cb-6@eVa-' lives. But the house group was fair. It accused the Army Engineers of first hiking power costs in order to lighten the charge for flood control, and then SPA come along and lowered the power factor in order to lighten the load for REA. The committee rounded out its charge with this statement: ,^J| "The Interior Department. Army Engineers, and Ihc Federal Power Commission have : not been consistently diligent, v sound or objective in their ac- lf tions involving allocation of cost .problems." £ Some, "disinterested agency" ^ shoukt take ovcr the whole authority for cost allocations, the committee concluded — and it suggest: ed that this be the Budget Bureau. ij, H y°u over had any notion that <W - Uncle Sam is just one big happy family when he starts off on some domestic enterprise the committee report I have just cited is clear evidence that government bureaus resemble the individual state governments in their endless tug-of- war for tax revenue, executive authority, and the advancement of specific interests, The house committee's conclusion is sound. Some one fact-find- •ing body, like the Budget Bureau, ought to have overriding authority over all bureaus when it comes to splitting ".up: costs that are to be translated into customer charges.; •'..•'•• The SPA is not in particularly good political repute, but the REA locals represent a valuable public work'all over America•*- and they deserve something better than the jeopardy which is creeping up on them because of juggled figures in the fight between the bureaus higher up,, . " The whole paint of the REA pro- gran) was to get electricity "out to isolated rural points. It was not to prove some theorist's idea that this or that rate ought lo prevail. We knew in advance that the -taxpayers would haye to cover part of the cost of the program — but if this endless bickering and misrep- ^iresentation isn't stopped it .won't W be long before the taxpayers quit v cold on ail projects. Darly morning interview with Pinay he had told reporters: "But my decision is taken," he told reporters. "It is not possible to carry such heavy charges and responsibilities without a solid majority" Auriol, an old hand at such crises as this, was expected to try in conferences with political leaders to persuade Pinay to carry on, at least until the nation has a balanced budget. The President also may seek to mend the government's broken majority by asking the MRP leaders to put aside party politics in the national interest UN Planes on Offensive in Korea By RQJ3ERT UDICK , SEOUL,.^Kpraa^ (UP)—American and atne'r'U! N. warplahes seized the ciffensive in the Korean war today, ripping into airfields, supply bases and troop concentrations as ground action stalled in temperatures that plummeted to 13 degrees above zero.

(Tex) Dickins refused to comment on the report, neither confirming nor denying it. Tho Arkansas Gazette said that most of the seven members who were discharged by the governor would meet here next week and advertise for bids on a franchise to operate a horse race track at Forrest City. Many Criminal Cases Left in Grain Deals By PATRICIA WIGGINS WASHINQTON, (UP) —Rcpub licans taking over the Justice DC- partmenl next month will inherit a huge backlog of criminal cases growing out of shortages of government grain. Since 1940, the Agriculture Department has permitled farmers to store in their own barns Ihe grain which Ihey morlgage to thq government in return for loans under the price support 1 program. During this six-year period, Ag. rlculture Department attorneys have spotted 863 cases, involving $1,072,000 worth of grain, in which shortages occurred. They suspected deliberate fraud In 510 cases, and turned them over to the Justice Department for prosecution. A summary made public yestcjr day showed that 333 of these cases are still hanging fire, awaiting action by various U. S. distrid attorneys. Processing these cases will be a major legal chore for the incoming administration. These on-the-farm cases are over and above the more than $7,000,000 worth of grain the government is attempting to recover from about 131 commercial warehousemen who illegally sold government- owned grain they were storing. The summary showed that 471 on-the-farm shortages have cropped up since last March I, more than half of the six-year total. Of these, 372 were flagged as possible fraud cases. Hore's the score on Justice PC- partment action to date on the 510 cases in which the department suspected fraud: Twenty-nine have been taken to court; justice attorneys found insufficient basis for prosecution in 122 cases; and federal grand juries failed to indict another 28. That leaves 333 cases still pending. Agriculture officials defend the record on grounds that it is hare to prove "intent to defraud the government." They also point out that the entire 863 cases represent less than one-thirteenth ol one percent « the 1,200,000 farm-stored ban coo* tracts in effect during the nearly seven year period. The agriculture department summary said the actual ultimate toss to the government from al) the cases in expected to b« "not mpjr« toa» f 100,000 ss fcss f > It saM tbjf Taken From Ship BEAIUT, Lebanon, (UP)— The bravo, crew of a Lebanese motor launch, rescued nil rcmnlnlng pnsscniBors nnd some crewmen— n loin), of nbout 150 persons— from Ihc wrecked French Cruise Liner Chanipblllon todny. Bcfdte tho rescue, scores of panic- •• stricken passengers hnd leaped from the slanting deck of tho liner into the sea 17 to death, about 45 to be rescued by Lebanese fishing boats. As night interrupted rescue operations, only about 100 ot tho Champolllon's crew remained aboard, confident ot rescue in the morning. i . According to official figures — subject still to revision— there were 113 passengers and 205 crewmen 'in the 12,540-lon Christmas cruise liner when it was smashed into a root In a howling gule, only 200 yards offshore. Scvcnlccn crewmen who volunteered lo try to swim ashore with n lifeline were picked up ycsterduy by Ihc lillle Lebanese fishing boals that bobbed about the liner. It looked grim for those remaining aboard today, with the ship fast breaking up and waves sweeping ovcr it. There was an anxious huddle of officials and boatmen on the shore. Capt. B. Radwan, who pilots ocean-going, ships into Bcajut liar bor, 'volunteered to go to the rescue. Caplaln Kadwan, descendant of men who were plying the ancient mcd|terrancan in blblica times, took, the wheel of his launch and put his engine at full throttle. Ho bounced his craft through the sens to the Champollion, its back broken and heeling ovcr at a 50- degree slant. As he went alongside, crew ers of .the Champollion throw ^ropds: "He •lecurtW-hte Wttlo craft to the side of the liner. The crewmen threw rope ladders ovcr the side. While Kadwan, maneuvered his boat close to the ship, men and women started clambering down the side, first the women, then the men passengers, then some crewmen. Three worn en carried babies in their arms. Three other children climbed down in' safety.
