Before passing the measure late yesterday, the Senate added the McKellar amendment, which does three things designed to emphasize congressional control over the purse strings, namely; Requires the cancellation of any Army or Navy funds declared by the department heads to be unneces sary, to prevent the Budget Bureau from holding such balances in re serve for future use. This step was prompted by the recent announce ment that the Army would be able to turn back $13,000,000,000 of its original war budget. Holding Up Projects Barred. Prevents the Budget Bureau from holding up any particular project heretofore or hereafter appropriated for by Congress in any agency of Government. Repeals the War Department's authority to transfer up to 10 per cent of its current appropriations from one function to another. In all, the Senate added about $14Q,000,000 to the emergency sup ply bill, most of which was in three items: War housing, $50,000,000; community facilities in congested areas, $50,000,000, and for the con troversial program of the Farm Security Administration, $44,000,000. The Senate made no contest over the House allotment of an addi tional $5,000,000 to the Office of War Information for overseas work. Appeal of Two Rejected. Senators Lodge, Republican, of Massachusetts, and Chandler, Democrat, of Kentucky, led a los ing fight Ip amend the McKellar Budget Bureau ban In order to give the Secretaries of War and Navy discretion in the transfer of funds and in the future use of present surpluses. They appealed to the Senate not to tie the hands of the fighting arms of the Government, but on a roll call the amendment failed, 56 to 19. Earlier the Senate had voted overwhelmingly to suspend the rules to make the McKellar ban in order as legislation on an ap propriation bill.

This means we must make the most of the lines we now have. Thus, party lines become a part of the all out war effort —they take on a new name — PATRIOTIC LINES. You will find that "Patriotic-line" telephone service is good telephone service if all users will follow these simple rules: 1. If another is using the line, hang up gently and wait a reasonable time before trying again. 2. Make way for your neighbor by being as brief as you can on your calls. 3. Avoid making a number of calls in succes* sion. 4. Replace the receiver carefully after each call eo as not to prevent others from using the line.
