Taxpayers Bear Cost
Of Airline Favors,
Rees Declares
By the Associated Press
Representative Rees, Republican,
of Kansas said yesterday evidence
i submitted to a House committee
shows the taxpayer is paying for
entertainment and other special
favors which he declared individual
airlines use in getting local support
before the Civil Aeronautics Board.
Mr. Rees, chairman of the House
Civil Service Subcommittee which
recently held hearings on grants by
the Government to airlines, said in
a statement:
"Evidence was submitted at the
hearings showing that the taxpayer
is paying for parties, hotel suites,
entertainment and other special
favors which the individual airlines
use in influencing local officials to
support them before the Civil Aero
nautics Board.”

Calls for Re-examination.
Announcing that hearings will be
resumed in January, Mr. Rees said
he intends to ask the CAB to re
examine decisions on airmail pay.
"It must be determined, how much
more is being paid airlines for
carrying mail than should be al
lowed,” he added.
‘‘I believe any industry subsidized
by the American taxpayers for mil
lions of dollars should have its ex
penditures carefully examined so
that unnecessary and extravagant
expenses are eliminated,” the chair
man said.
“The tremendous subsidy paid the
scheduled air lines, combined with
the fact that not one additional
trunk line has been authorized since
; 1938, has resulted in a virtual mo
nopoly among the scheduled air lines
who fight among themselves for
profitable new routes.”
Legislation increasing domestic
air mail rates one cent has been
approved by the main House Civil
Service Committee and the Ast
Office Department, Mr. Rees added.
Points To Opposition.
The Post Office Department and
the scheduled air lines have ob
jected to the increased rate proposed
but did say that the air mail rate

"After more than a year's ex
perience with the five cent air mail
rate,” tlie chairman asserted, "the
post Office Department is losing
$15,000,000 annually in handling air
mail. An increase of one cent in the
air mail rate will wipe out $10,000,
000 of this loss.”
During 1947, he stated, 24 major
air lines will receive approximately
$25,000,000 for carrying air mail.

Of 'Santa' While
He Visits Them
By th« A**ociat«d Press
STAMFORD, Conn., Dec. 20.—
Santa Claus put a chicken in the
pot of every member of the Stam
ford police force last night and, in
return, the police force gave St.
Nick a summons.
Maj. Horace E. Dodge, scion of
the wealthy Dodge automobile
family, who has a country estate
! here, sent a- truck loaded with 118
! hens and roosters, enough for every
| member of the force, to the police
j station. Maj. Dodge and his farm
superintendent accompanied the
truck part of the way in an auto
mobile which they were forced by
the crowded streets to park a block
from police headquarters.
When Maj. Dodge and his super
; intendent returned to the car they
found a parking ticket tied to a
door handle.
Police Chief John B. Brennan,
learning of the incident today,
asserted, "That is one parking ticket
that will be fixed.” He added he
hoped Maj. Dodge wouldn’t choose
the rush hour to deliver any future
