He added state regulatory bodies frequently lack experts and they "don't know what has gone into all c-f these power rate schedules filed by privale companies." "The public regulatory bodies don't actually fix the rales,' Ellis urguctl. "The companies blow in ana Jilc long schedules of rales and usually the commissions ap- pi'ovc In em as asked.

Ellis contended if private ulili- tics are permitted to buy all power from flood control dams at the generations point both the flood control and the rural . eleclrifica- tion programs will be wrecked, a People of Ihe southwest, he said, will not support the llood control program and sec their lands flooded by reservoirs if they can't benefit from the cheap power generated. ' Ho argued if the government doesn't retain at least a threat of competition in an area power companies will .not pass along savings derived from power generated at the dams.

Hamilton Moses, president of the Arkansas Power and Light Co., said today that his company could not go ahead with its $50,000,000 expansion .program until the government decides whether "private enterprise or the government is going -to operate the power business." ; Moses had just returned from Washington, where he appeared before congressional committees in support of a bill to set up the government's power policy. The A. P. & L. executive said that he told tlie committee his company was planning the big expansion program for the next five' years but that "we can't make our plans until we know what the government is going to do." Representatives of the private utility companies, he said, promised the committee they would purchase power from all dams constructed in Ihe southwest area by the government. The bill before Congress proposes that the U. S. engineers, who design and construct the hydroelectric dams, would sell the power directly at the dams to the private utility companies, which would distribute it to their cusomers.

The bigshot of Hungarian show business today is Joseph Stal- i. Over the "Coney Island" of Budapest flics a red Hag with hammer and sickle. Every kid who rides the merry-go-round pays a copper Loward curing the financial ills of the Soviet Union. The leading club for Russian Army officers in this city has been reconverted into a night spot for natives and tourists. The "pali"— that's the Hungarian word for suckers — are trimmed two dollars per cocktail. In the distant Kremlin, life may continue at an austere pace for the politburb, but it controls 200 companies in Hungary ranging from coal mines to an amusement park, and revenues are getting fatter these days. The 200 companies formerly contained German capital and were worth upwards of $50,000,0001 Thanks to the Allied agreement at Potsdam in 1945, the German capital became Sovictized overnight. Battle-weary Russians, who had fought from Stalingrad to the Budapest "Corso, shucked off their 'uniforms, donned wrinkled civilian suits and turned to profit-making— for the financial glory of the Soviet ii'»thcifl;Vi>d—with; all the avidity or Horatio Algier in his first'job. They are shock troops of Communist commerce in this 30th ; year ince the Bolshevik revolution. of Coney Island gadgets in the heart of Budapest. "Angol," in Hungarian, means English. The amusement park was established a generation three German brothers, ago by one of whom emigrated to England. The latter's son and heir, Captain Stanley Meinhardt of Coventrx and Lbn- don, retains a 50 per cent share of the company, but the remainder is completely Russian. An 81-year-old Hungarian friend, Kalman Kovacs, represents the Englishman. He sits table in one corner at of a tiny Captain Yerizalov's big office and just lis tens. ,' Kovacs and Captain Yerizalov cannot speak a common language. But it is not necessary at Angol Park. 1 What the captain says, goes. welcome an investigation. "Nothing would please us more," Binns asserted, "than to have the truth spread upon the record and the American people realize the damage that has been done to them by destructive legislation and administration and false economics.'However, Herbert U. Nelson, executive vice president of the National Association of Real Estate Boards, declared in another statement that "it is nonsense to talk about investigating us" because Congress has "the complete records of our activities as required by law."

GOfr Leaders Split on Truman's Plea Washington, July 1 —(/P)— President Truman's pica that Congress nvestigate what he called the 'brazen operations" of real estate .obbyists today generated a broadside of clashing reaction with po- itical overtones.

The committee recommended a 1948 appropriation of $10,500,000 for the Point Mugu 7,400-acre project, 40 miles north of Los Angeles.

PRICE U. S. Ends Year With Substantial Budget Surplus! Washington, July 2—(/P)— Secretary Snyder announced today the government finished the 1947 fiscal year Monday with a budget "arplus of almost $754,000,000. That was approximately $500,000,000 less than President Truman had estimated on April 19 and $401,000,000 below the record high set under President Coolidge exactly 20 years ago. But it was the first surplus in 17 years and it broke up a string of deficits that began under Herbert Hoover and had continued under Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Truman. Snyder told a news conference that the surplus—which represents the amount that government income exceeded spending over the last 12 months—already; has been applied on the national debt. With that amount included, debt retirement over the fiscal year totaled $11,522,000,000, Snyder said. The debt stood at $258,376,000,000,000 oil June 3. That was $21388,000,000 below the all-time peak reached 16 months ago. The exact amount of the surplus was $753,787,660.28. For the previous year, the government had had a deficit of $20,676,000,000. This meant an improvement of more than $21,000,000,000 for last year compared with the preceding one. Net budget receipts totaled $43,258,833,188 compared with a nresi- clential estimate in April of $42,500,000,000.

BY JAMES THRASHER Mr. Wallace's Popularity .. Several columnists recently have -ndevoted a day's space to an effort * to explain the current popularity of Henry' A. Wallace. And certainly Mr. Wallace is a phenomenon that -merits some explanation. Every time he gets knocked down he comes bouncing back with renewed strength, to the accompaniment of louder cheers. He got himself in the Presidential doghouse and tossed, out of the Cabinet. But that didn't bother him. He went abroad and made a scries of attacks on U. S. foreign policy and those who'have formulated it. '•f^He was scolded by the American and British press and castigated in Congress. His x>ld friend, Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, gave his views the brushofl. One of the more-or- less independent liberal groups ol American political stumping. All the columnists that we have read on the subject of Mr. Wallacc- including some ardent old New Dealers—have found him to be confused and wrong-headed on a number of counts. They have charged him with vacillation and conua- V9 diction. They have accused him ol damning the U. S. government ior policies which he excuses and de- lends in the Soviet government. They have called him insincere. They have called him an "innocent" who is being shamelessly used by the Communists. But almost to a man these columnists have found the same answer to the American, people's hungry search tor a leader. They iind ' that he fills the void left by Mr. of Hope this afternoon opened bids on the municipal' swimming pool for Fair park. All bidders were required to make Iwo offers, one for the complete, job, the ..other,, for"', construction of• the pool except for excavation work. • Mr. Edwards was low with a bid of $34,889 for Ihe complete job, and $34,199 without excavat.ic* work. ' The olher three bids were: Grady Garms, Little Rock, $44,000 complete, $43,000 without excavation. Paddock Engineering Co., Dallas, Texas, $49,620 complete,. $48,590 without excavation. Hprton-Pollard, contractors of Bosier City, La., $54,588 complete, $o2,888 without excavation. The bids were opened in the presence of the following for Ihe Conflict Now International War-China Nanking, July 2 —(UP)— The Chinese government today officially charged that the civil conflict has war,' wai planes become an "international as Nationalist troops and cnased communists units from shattered Szepingkai. Government Information Director Hollington K.

' Roosevelt's passing inspires the people and Inat he by his messages of idealism and his efforts on behalf of the common man. In most of these explanations we have found an implied indictment of those who should be the nation's inspirational leaders, but aren't. Therefore, one gathers, Mr. Wallace is serving a useful purpose. We can't agree with, this conclusion. Not all of America's popular leaders have been great. There is a vast difference between the popularity earnd by distinguishd a k'chievements and the popularity gained through an ability to spout vague generalities and windy promises. But you cant always leu the difference from the applause the two types of leader receive. The initial oopularity of Adolt Hitler and Benilo Mussolini and Huey Long was of the latter sort. Mr. Wallace is not a Fuehrer or a Duce or a Kingl'ish. But his public record to date does suggssi that his present popularity stems more from .emotional reactions V than from sound accomplishments. Sometimes, in periods 01 stress from sound accomplishments. and trouble, a nation is lucky enough to find a great leader. Sometimes it isn't. But the groping search is always a little frigntsn ing. There is the danger that the searchers will come up, as the Germans and Italians did, only with someone who can make -them leel important and exploited at the same time, who can bolster their egoes, nourish their self-pity and earn ^, their unquestioned devotion by tel- ' ling them only most to hear.

Trouble With This Country Is You Can't Smoke Cigar While Flying From One End to Other By HAL BOYLE New York, July 2 — (ft>)— The trouble wilh Ihis country is that you can't smoke a cigar while fiy- inc from one end of it to Ihe olher.

For some reason Ihe airplane companies will permit you to smoke a cigaret aloft, but turn thums down on a cigar. Some passengers are queasy. Since Ihe cheroot I had been fumigating the landscape with was a mellow — 22 conl Havana, I wasn't going to give up the last sixteen cents worth without a struggle. We stopped first at Kansas City. I called up my mother and found the wet spring there is- slill raising the devil with her Irish rheumatism. "A friend of mine with about the same complaint went out west to cure it and died, she said with her usual optimism, "so I am corn years. : I puffed Ihe cigar down to about eight cents worth and we flew on. We coald look down on all the terrible watery devaslalion that has cost thousands of farmers a years fruitless labor. To us in the air it was only brown flooded land —but to those below it was the heartache of drowned crops, destroyed livestock, ruined homes. We soared over highways and rail linos cut by Ihe terrible power of tremendous backcd-up rains, and Ihey had no power lo hold or hall us. We flew unhindered Ihrough a lighlning storm lhat hurt js not at all. but poured fresh death and terror on those below who live by land.
