{Customs Bureau Hit I
As Trying to Force ι
Funds Restoration
I
By th· Associoted Preis
Senators in charge of appropria
tions studied today a committee
report charging the United States
Customs Bureau with "gross in
competence"' and a "bald attempt"
to pressure Congress for money.
As a result of the report, Sena
tor Cordon, Republican, of Oregon
indicated the bureau will have a
tough time persuading his Appro
priations Subcommittee to restore
a $3,500,000 House .slash in funds
for the fiscal year starting July 1.
Senator Cordon told reporters he
hopes the report, by the Senate Ex
penditures Committee, will serve as
a warning to other Government
agencies protesting House cuts in
their appropriations.
The expenoitures group said the
bureau should be "thoroughly over
hauled" and forced to get by with
the $32,500,000 the· House voted to
I give it.
Pressure Charged.
It added that dismissal notices
the bureau sent to 1,500 border and
port control officers after the House
acted were "completely unwarrant
ed" and "a bald attempt to arouse
the public into demanding a resto
ration of the reduction in expendi
tures.^"
Chairman Aiken of the Expendi
tures Committee said its investiga
tion showed:
1, The "wholesale firing" was "ill
considered" and left most major
ports and the entire Canadian bor
der "open to smuggling" and 421 of
the discharged officers were put back,
to work within a few days.
2. The reduction in funds and per
sonnel could be spread among cleri
cal and other forces so that the
"enforcement staff," which indludes
the 1,500 guards originally dismissed,
need not be reduced more than 30
per cent.
3. All of the patrol officers along
the Canadian border were dismissed
while 56' clerks who worked with
them were kept on the payroll.
Some Called Incompetent.
4. The 56 collectors and comp
trollers of customs -are "political
appointees" who cast the Govern
ment $400,000 a year. Of these ttfo
are "at least 80 years of age and
physically incapable of performing
their duties" and another, recently
replaced, had visited the customs
office about once every two weeks
"presumably on pay days."
The rçport said the Bureau could
save some $350,000 a year it now
pays for overtime if it staggered the
40-hour week of its employees to
cover Saturdays and Sundays.
RFC to Lend $3,000,000
To Insurance Firm
The Reconstruction Finance Corp.
announced yesterday it will lend
$3,000,000 to the Preferred Accident
Insurance Co. of New York.
RFC Chairman John D. Goodloe
said arrangements had been com
pleted for the loan and that it will
be secured principally by preferred
stock of the company.
The loan was authorized by RFC
at the request of Secretary of the
Treasury Snyder with the approval
of President Truman, the RFC said.
Duke Hospital Nurse,
Investigating Eighth
Fire, Is Slugged
By th· Associated Press
DURHAM, N. C., April 26.—Duke
Hospital, scene of seven mysterious
fires Wednesday and the shooting
of a head nurse that night, had
another incendiary fire last night,
Capt. Claude Woods of the fire de
partment reported.
At the same time, city police re
ported that another nurse had been
struck by a man as she started to
investigate the fire in an attic room
above tha fifth floor of the hospital.
Among other developments in the
case was the announcement by
Police Chief H. E. King that Dennis
O'Neal, 25, of Durham, a University j
of North Carolina student, was re
leased after questioning in connec
tion with the shooting Wednesday
night of Miss Sue Taylor, 26-year
old nurse. Chief King said O'Neal,
taken into custody late last night,
was booked on an open charge.
Police who accompanied firemen
to the scent fanned out over the
hospital corridors in search of the
nurse's assailant but they were un
able to locate him.
The nurse was identified as Miss
Virginia Leonard, 23.
Miss Taylor was shot by an un
identified young man who first
robbed her companion, a Duke med
ical student, of a wallet containing
only $2.
Little damage to the hospital was
caused by the fire last night. Capt.
Woods said rags, a board and a |
table in the room were burning I
when firemen arrived.
