Senators Blast Blunders' in Sale
Of War Plants and Handling of
Rubber and Alcohol Programs
- ♦-—-———___
'Less Prudence'
Than 'Charity
Bazaar' Cited
By Robert K. Walsh
The Senate Preparedness Sub
committee today scored “blunders”
in the disposal of surplus plants
and the "far from satisfactory”
handling of the rubber program
and industrial alcohol facilities
by Government agencies.
“It ill becomes Government of
ficials to conduct the public busi
ness with less prudence than they
would display in operating a
charity bazaar but that has
happened,” the subcommittee de
clared.
The 37-page report by the Armed
Services subcommittee headed bv
Senator Johnson. Democrat, rf
Texas, was the second issued by
that group which in general
resembles the old war investigat
ing committee. President Truman,
then a Senator, was chairman of
the wartime committee.
In its September 5 report the
subcommittee criticized a “siesta
psychology” in surplus property
and rubber programs. Today’s
report singled out the Munitions
Board, Commerce Department,
General Services Administration
and the Air Force for special
attack.
Plant Disposal Criticized.
“Over-all, the agencies re
sponsible for the surplus property
program, primarily the Munitions
Board and GSA—have been slow
to awaken to the realities of the
challenge presented by Commu
nist aggression,” the subcommit
tee charged. "The results, in
some instances have been costly
to the preparedness program.”
The subcommittee was particu
larly caustic in its comments on
the way that some production
plants it described as greatly
needed in the defense program
were sold or leased to private'
concerns.
The Munitions Board in some
instances has “not exercised its
discretion as wisely as could be
expected,” the subcommittee
found. GSA, in the subcommit
tee’s opinion, “displayed a com
mendable awareness of the chang
ing world conditions” when it is
sued a “freeze order” on surplus
disposal in August.
Plant Sold for Tenth of Cost.
Noting, however, that the Na
tion’s industrial alcohol producing
facilities are inadequate, the sub
committee said the Munitions
Board should not have allowed
GSA to dispose of alcohol plants
at Kansas City and Omaha.
Sale of the $7 million Kansas
City plant for $710,000 to Schen
ley since the outbreak of the Ko
rean fighting caused “much con
cern” to the subcommittee.
“We take the simple position,”
the subcommittee stated, “that
production of alcohol for the syn
thetic rubber program is some
what more important than pro
duction of alcohol for beverage
purposes.”
Suggesting that the Government
take steps “to salvage something
from the waste that haste has
wrought,” the subcommittee asked
GSA and the Munitions Board to
seek a security clause in the con
tract so that the Government
could reclaim the plant in event
of emergency.
“It is our view,” the subcommit
tee said, "that Schenley’s moral
and perhaps legal relationship to
this plant is such that it should
consent, without reservation, to
make the plant available to the
Government for any defense use
that the Government wants to
make of it.”
As for the Omaha alcohol plant
leased for 10 years to the recently
organized Central States Corp. of
Chicago, the subcommittee de
clared the Government should

Capital Transit Votes
$1 Dividend, Requests
Okay on Stock Split
Directors Signify Their
Intention of Maintaining
$4 Annual Rate
Directors of the Capital Transit
Co. today declared a quarterly
dividend of $1 a common share,
signifying their intention of main
taining a $4 annual rate an
nounced three months ago.
The company also announced
the filing of applications with the
Interstate Commerce Commission
and the Public Utilities Commis
sion for the approval of its pro
posed 4-for-l stock splitup.
Today’s dividend, payable De
cember 20 to stockholders of rec
ord December 4, will increase pay
ments on the stock this year to
$3 a share. Prior to the first $1
quarterly in September, the com
pany had been paying 50 cents
quarterly.
Stockholders to Vote December 12.
The application filed with the
commissions late yesterday asked
authority to split the company’s
capital stock 4 for 1, increasing
the number of outstanding shares
to 960,000 from 240,000 and re
ducing the par value from $100
to $25.
Stockholders will vote on the
proposal at a special meeting at
the company offices at 11 a.m.
on December 12. Directors ap
proved the plan October 26.
The dividend was doubled in
September in the face of what
were generally considered unfa
vorable earnings. September net
income of $83,714 was well above
the $29,503 for September of 1949,
but net for the first nine months
of this year was only $385,229,
compared with $527,802 in the
same 1949 period.
Hauung Fepco Increase.
The company currently is bat
tling before the PUC against a
proposed substantial increase in
its power costs by Potomac Elec
tric Power Co. It has contended
that its power costs would be in
creased around 59 per cent if
Pepco is allowed to increased its
rates.
The sharp rise in the priee of
Cap^al Transit stock since a Flor
ida group headed by Louis E.
Wolfson took over a year ago in
September, has attracted much
attention in financial circles here.
The Wolfson group acquired its
original 109,458 shares from North
American Co. at $20 a share and
saw the price soar to a high of $39
a share before it fell back. Cur
rently the price is around $35.
The Wolfson group is known to
have acquired substantial addi
tional blocks of the stock.
Intensive trading in the stock
started in October, 1949, and many
large Washington holdings were
sold at $20 to $25 a share. The
sharp rise in price raised some
official eyebrows, however, for in
August of this year, brokers and
investment houses of this area
were requested to supply details
of all transactions in Capital
Transit to the Securities and Ex
change Commission. Trading in
September and October fell off
to more normal proportions.

Civilian Use of Cobalt,
Vital in Hardening of
Steel, Slashed 70 Pet.
Scarce Metal Is Needed
In Manufacture of
Radio and TV Sets
By Francis P. Douglas
The National Production Author
ity today ordered a 70 per cent
cutback in the civilian use of co
balt, an important metal in con
struction of television sets and
radios.
The agency issued a temporary
directive that orders for the metal
for other than defense production
shall be filled by delivering not
more than 30 per cent of the
average monthly quantity which
the purchaser used in the first
six months of this year.
This applies to the balance of
November and NPA said it would
issue another directive governing
distribution of the scarce metal in
December. William H. Harrison.
NPA administrator said he hopes
a somewhat larger percentage
would be made available for civil
ian use next month. Orders for
25 pounds or less are excepted
from today’s directive.
Defense Orders Running High.
The metal is used for hardening
steel and the electronics industry
has depended on it in making
magnets and other components of
radio and television sets. Defense
orders for the metal are currently
running at a high level.

Yeggs Make Off With Safe
Containing About $700
Cracksmen early today forced

Chamber Asks
Savings Instead
Of Profits Tax
Favors Economies
In U. S. Spending for
Non-Military Items
By Cecil Holland
The United States Chamber of
Commerce today called for a $6
billion slash in Government spend
ing for non-military purposes as
“the first step" in the Nation’s
rearmament program instead of
stiff excess profits tax now being
considered by the House Ways and
Means Committee.
Ellsworth C. Alvord, chairman of
the Chamber’s Committee on Fed
eral Finance, described the ad
ministration’s proposal for a 75
per cent tax on abnormal earn
ings of corporation as unsound and
unworkable, and added in a state
ment prepared for the record:
“An excess profits tax encour
ages wasteful practices in utiliza
tion of materials and manpower
and contributes strongly to infla
tion and the cost of preparedness.”
He testified before the House
Ways and Means Committee in
hearings on President Truman’s
urgent request for an excess
profits tax that would produce $4
billion a year to help pay part of
the cost of the country’s expand
ing defense program.
Called Penalty on Enterprise.
As business groups continued
their attacks on the administra
tion’s proposals, the Committee for
Economic Development—an or
ganization of business executives—
told the House group the kind of
excess profits tax outlined by
Secretary of the Treasury Snyder
"needlessly and recklessly exceeds
the limits consistent With a strong
America.”
J. Cameron Thomason of Min
neapolis presented the CED’s views
to the committee and said the ad
ministration's tax would actually
“weaken America.”
“It would be hard to think of a
tax better calculated to penalize
the enterprising firm relative to
the sluggish, the efficient relative
to the inefficient, the new and
growing firm relative to the old
established one,” Mr. Thomason
testified.

Gov. Warren Declares
State of Emergency in
California Floods
Reno Hard Hit as Waters
Rise in Western Nevada;
Damage Is in Millions
By tht Associated Press
Gov. Warren today declared a
state of emergency because of
the raging floods in Central
California.
The Governor authorized all
State agencies to use their, em
ployes, equipment and facilities
to assist local communities. The
adjutant general's office alerted
5.000 National Guardsmen for
emergency duty in the flood cen
tral valley.
Torrents of mountain-fed flood
waters ripped through Northern
and Central California and West
ern Nevada this morning, driving
thousands of persons from their
homes and doing untold amounts
of property damage.
At least nine persons are dead
from the floods, which started cn
its third day of rampage, with
added force from mountain rains
and melting snow.
Part of Reno Flooded.
Here is how the situation stacks I
up at the moment:
Nevada—The main section of
Reno is a tumbled mass of mud,
debris and torn paving after the
swirling Truckee River—normally
3 to 4 feet deep at this time of
year—roared 20 feet deep and 3
blocks wide through the center of
“the Biggest Little City in the
World.”
The Truckee burst its banks
with crushing force at 10:30 last
night, flooding swank hotels and
gambling casinos. For hours the
downtown section was under 6 to 8
feet of water, but the flood was
receding today. One death was
attributed to the racing waters.
California—The Yuba County
sheriff’s office ordered the evacua
tion of an estimated 3,500 resi
dents from East Linda, near
Marysville, in the face of the
threat of the flooding Yuba and
Bear Rivers. The muddy torrent,
which already has smashed
through levees in three places and
inundated the towns of Hammon
ton and Marigold, continues to
rise.
River Out of Banks.
The American River burst its
banks near Sacramento and flood
ed thousands of acres of suburban
land, driving 1,000 people from
their homes.
Eight California deaths were*
attributed, directly or indirectly,
to the floods.

War Will Continue Into Spring,
U. N. Intelligence Officers Say
Weather and Terrain Will Delay Mop-Up
More Than Enemy Resistance, They Predict
By Stan Swinton
Associated Press War Correspondent
ON THE NORTHEAST FRONT,
Korea, Nov. 21.—United Nations
intelligence officers predict the
Korean war will continue well
into next spring.
Wild, inaccessible mountains,
head-high snowdrifts and temper
atures 20 degrees and more below
zero will delay the U. N. victory,
they fear.
They consider enemy resistance
a secondary factor.
They do not believe the North
Korean and Chinese Communists
can build a winter line which
could hold—if U. N. forces could
bludgeon It with full strength.
But subzero temperature wil]
cut combat efficiency. Most of th(
U. N. army’s resources will be ab
| sorbed in just keeping men alive
I and in the line.
Any winter cleanup offensive in
an area where the terrain and
poor roads would give the Com
munists all the advantages is vir
tually out of the question, these
sources say.
This is what qualified Intelli
gence sources expect the deep
winter to bring:
First—Increasing bad feeling
between North Korean and Chi
nese Communists.
1 The Koreans and Chinese never
have been on particularly good
terms hi Asia. Recently-captured
j North Korean prisoners complain
■ bitterly that they are thrown into
ithe front lines while the Chinese
remain in the rear. This bad
feeling—similar to that between

Rail Freight Rates Cut
12Pct.on New Autos;
Buyers Will Benefit
ICC Acts to Equalize
Costs From Main Plants
And Assembly Factories
ly the Associated Press
The Interstate Commerce Com
mission today ordered an average
12 per cent reduction in railroad
freight rates on new automobiles.
Officials estimated the cut,
dated to become effective Feb
ruary 20, will involve savings of
$10 and up for new-car purchases.
The retail price of new automo
biles traditionally includes the rail
transportation charge from the
main factory to the home city
of the purchaser, regardless of
how delivery is made between
these points.
Thus the revision in the basic
rail rate will be reflected in the
local sales tag, in amounts vary
ing according to location and the
weight of the car.
Assembly Plants Are Factor.
The ICC acted on the basic rate
structure in what was described
as an effort toward equalizing
competition among those manu
facturers handling their product
principally out of the factory citj
and those maintaining assembly
plants at various points over the
country.
Chrysler, Nash, Packard, Stude
baker and Willys-Overland com
plained to the commission three

structure tended to give a com

U. S. Troops Quiet but Happy On Reaching Manchuria Border
By Tom Stone
Associated Press War Correspor^Jent
AT THE MANCHURIAN BOR
DER, Korea, Nov. 21. — Tired
American infantrymen slogged
into the ghost city of Hyesanjin
on the Red Manchurian border of
North Korea today and occupied
it without firing a shot.
They patted one another on the
back. Some shook hands. But
there was no shouting.
Maj. Gen. David Barr, com
mander of the United States 7th
Division, whose 17th Regimental
Combat Team came here, com
mented :
“I’m thankful that we got here
with a minimum cost in lives and
equipment.”
It was the first American unit
to reach the border.
Col. Herbert B. Powell, com
mander of the combat team, said:
"We will sweep through the
town and then go back into good

hill positions and then see what
happens.”
Col. Powell added: "What will
happen after that is out of my
hands. That’s somebody else’s
policy.”
He said a military government
would arrive later in the day to
organize a democratic govern
ment. "They’ll elect a mayor in a
few days,” he added.
The colonel was not surprised
that no resistance was met.
He said he saw no signs of the
enemy; “there were no outposts
and no delaying detachments.”
First GIs to enter the city were
M/Sergts. M. S. Osborne of Ya
kima, Wash., and Edward Perdins
of Los Angeles.
The troops had kicked off at 8
a.m. (6 p.m., EST. Monday). They
reached the top of a snow-covered
ridge and looked out over the val
ley. In the distance some two
miles away was the town they had
been fighting to reach for the last
three weeks.
The temperature was about 30
above zero, warm for the GIs who
have been fighting in temperature
as low as 20 below.
The sun was bright. There was
not a cloud in the sky. The whole
valley look asleep.
The column began moving. Out
in front were the riflemen. They
were followed by Sherman tanks
and ack-ack sections. More troops
trailed behind.
The columh wound slowly down
the long narrow road that snakes
into the little river town. It neared
a bluff just on the outskirts of the
city.
Some of the foot soldiers left
the road to scour a clump of
scrawny trees. There was nothing
in them and the column which
had slowed up a little began to
move on.
The little mudhuts along the
road were boarded up. There was
no sign of life any where. Cattle
stood unattended in frozen fields.
Plants roared overhead. They
swooped low over the city. They
did not draw antiaircraft fire. That
eased the feeling of the GIs.

Yanks Capture
Border Town
Without Shot
Reds Are Reported
Reorganizing North
Of Korean Frontier
By th« Associated Press
SEOUL, Korea, Nov. 21.—Tank
supported American infantrymen
walked into deserted Hyesanjin on
the Manchurian border today. Not
a shot was fired.
Only the narrow, ice-coated
Yalu River lay between them and
Red Chinese territory. The troops
—of the 17th Regimental Com
bat Team—were the first Ameri
cans to reach the Manchurian
boundary.
American war planes swooped
low over the smouldering, bomb
wrecked town as weary infantry
men slogged the last 2 miles
through snow.
The only humans around were
15 villagers, garbed in black. They
stood outside the town and bowed
low as the unsmiling Americans
marched by.
Hyesanjin itself was deserted.
Buildings that had survived the
bombing were boarded up.
Commanding generals were ju
bilant. But the infantrymen who
reached the banks of the much
talked-about Yalu River boundary
were not impressed.
Reds Hold Road Network.
Maj. Gen. Edward M. Almond,
10th Corps commander, said the
feat of the 17th Combat Team
“divided enemy-held territory and
isolated all significant forces east
of the 127th meridian East longi
tude.”
Reds still held a Japanese-built
network of military roads on both
sides of Hyesanjin. They were
reported reorganizing in the moun
tains and north of the border.
In the northwest, the Reds also
were reported building defenses.
United States 24th Division
Cavalry patrols ran into light en
emy machine-gun fire on the west
ern front today. But United States
1st Cavalry patrols 6 miles away
found no Reds north of Yongbyon.
The South Korean 1st Corps ad
vanced as much as 2 miles without
opposition on the cavalry’s right
flank.
Far south of this front guerrillas
attacked three villages and 5th
Air Force fighters ‘‘virtually de
stroyed” the Red-held hamlet of
Yongpo, 55 miles south of Seoul.
Free Election Planned.
The day’s greatest and most
peaceful feat was the conquest of
Hyesanjin by the 7th Division’s
17th Regimental Combat Team,
Officers said a military govern
ment would arrive in a few days
and organize a free election.
Maj. Gen. David Barr, com
mander of the 7th Division, ex
pressed thanks “we got here with
a minimum cost in lives and
equipment.”
The infantrymen arrived in
clear weather, and the compara
tively warm temperature of 20
above. They had made a heroic
march through 6,000-foot moun
tains, made possible by engineer
ing feats “which would have done
credit to Paul Bunyan.”
A 10th Corps spokesman said
the 13th Engineer Combat Bat
talion and the 185th Engineer
Combat Team winched vehicles
across streams the Reds thought
were impassable, built 14 bridges
and bulldozed airstrips from earth
