Major U. S. Agencies
Are Due to Run Out
Of Money Tonight
Bv tha Anociatad Prnt
Once again, some important
Government agencies are due to
run out of money tonight while
Congress makes up its mind how
much to give them.
Although an emergency measure
financing the Defense and In
terior Departments expires offi
cially at midnight, the two agen
cies are not expected to run into
any real difficulty for a while.
It’s just as well, because no con
gressional action can be taken
until Monday, when the House
returns from a week-end adjourn
Never before have Federal
agencies been forced to operate
.for as long as three months of
a fiscal year while awaiting ap
proval of their budgets.
Three times since the present
fiscal year started on July 1 Con
gress has passed emergency
measures financing on a hand-to
mouth basis agencies whose an
nual money bills had not been
approved finally. Unless compro
mises are worked out early next
week, a fourth emergency measure
will be passed.
Five money bills still are hung
up because the Senate and the
House can’t agree on them. They
account for almost $15,000,000,000
or more than one-third of the
total Federal budget for the pres
ent fiscal year.
The five bills, and the Presi
dent’s budget requests on them,
Military establishment, $13,000,
000,000; Army Engineers, $767,
000,000; Interior, $617,000,000;
third deficiency, $162,000,000 and
supplemental, $75,000,000. The
latter two carry extra funds for
miscellaneous agencies whose reg
ular appropriations already have
Congressional experts say the
armed services and the Interior
Department can get along for sev
eral days without official appro
priations because of month-end
lags in bookkeeping. But they
soon will have payrolls to meet
and they can’t pay them without
House and Senate conferees
hope to work out compromises
early next week, but, just in case,
they have another stopgap appro
. priation bill ready.

Miss Flagstad to Sing
In San Francisco Tonight
By the Associated Pross
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. .30.—
Kirsten Flagstad, Norwegian so
prano, is scheduled to sing with
the San Francisco Opera Co. in
“Tristan and Isolde” tonight.
Her appearance here, the first
in 10 years, was a subject of
heated controversy a few weeks
ago. Trustees of the "War Memorial
Opera House banned her on
grounds of the pro-Nazi politics of
her late husband as the reason
for their action.
Their decision was later re
versed. Miss Flagstad’s role to
night marks her postwar return
to a major opera stage.

House to Give Senate No Credit If It Tries'One-Package' Fund
By Chris Mathisen
If the House Appropriations
Committee wraps all major spend
ing legislation into one big pack
age next year, it won’t be because
the Senate thinks this is a good
This was made clear this week in
House reaction to Senate passage
of a resolution calling for such
consolidated handling of appro
Present indications are the low
er chamber will take' no formal
notice of the Senate’s advice. The
resolution probably will be per
mitted to gather dust. But, para
doxically, the House seems ready
to consider all principal appropri
ation bills in one bundle—just as
the Senate recommended.
The point is that the House
members primarily concerned with
the Nation’s money matters have
no intention of letting any outsid
ers—including Senators—tell them
how they should set about trying
to make ends meet.
This jealousy of prerogative
stems from a provision in section
7 of Article I of the Constitution,
“All bills for raising revenue
shall originate in the House of
Representatives, but the Senate
may propose or concur with
amendments, as on other bills.”
Inasmuch as the House is given
the responsibility for finding the
money with which to pay the Gov
ernment’s obligations, it has beer
traditional that the House alsc
sets the spending pace.
The House passes the appropri
ations bills first. Then, the Sen
ate adds or substracts. and the
variances are resolved in confer
There are 10 regular annual
bills under the present system,
together with several others to
supply deficiencies and such spe
cial money measures as the foreign
For a number of years, it has
been suggested that Congress could
get a better picture of how the
Nation stood financially if the
entire budget were taken up in
one consolidated bill.
Ample Authority Now.
Chairman Cannon set a modern
record for speed in clearing the
major spending bills through the
House Appropriations Committee
this year and then announced the
committee had. decided to try the
one-bill system next year.
He pointed out the House rules
permit the committee to handle
the bills in any manner it sees
fit—to report to the floor one, or
three or a dozen spending meas
ures. No special authority for the
consolidated bill is needed, he
So, when asked to comment this
week on the Senate’s action in
approving a resolution calling lor
the single appropriation schedule,
Mr. Cannon said there was no
significance in it. The House
Appropriations Committee will go
ahead with its own plan for one
bill and pay no attention to the
Senate’s enactment, he said.
The Senate resolution was spon
sored by Senator Byrd, Democrat,
of Virginia. It was passed under
unanimous consent procedure.
There is little likelihood, however,
■that it will be called up* in the
House at this session, or, for that
matter, during the next.
“Trial Run” of System.
Mr. Cannon made a trial run
of the system he will use next
year -in handling a supplemental
appropriation bill recently.
Ordinarily, a subcommittee is
placed in charge of a basic ap
propriation bill for a department
or group of agencies. Then, when
supplemental or deficiency items
are sent to Congress by the Presi
dent. they are turned over in a
group to a subcommittee which
handles ohly such “added starter”
But, in the supplemental ap
propriation bill this year, Mr.
Cannon split the assorted items
among the subcommittees which
handled the basic allotments for
the agencies concerned.
This is what will happen when
