Two Arlington Judges
Disqualify Selves in
Board Ouster Case
Arlington Circuit Court Judges
Walter T. McCarthy and William
D. Medley have asked for another
jurist to preside over ouster pro
ceedings against two members of
the County Board.
The two jurists disqualified
themselves late yesterday and
asked the Supreme Court of Ap
peals to designate another to hear
charges leveled by a special grand
jury against Daniel A. Dugan and
P- Freeland Chew, the board
members.
In another development late in
the day, Sam Lano, Virginia- and
Maryland pinball and slot ma
chine distributor who now lives
In Northeast Washington, ap
peared at a brief Circuit Court
hearing to post $500 bond on an
indictment charging perjury. He
pleaded not guilty. He was ordered
to appear to have his trial date
set during the April term of court.
Says He Told of Gifts.
Lano told reporters that he had
not lied to the grand jury which
had accused him of testifying
under oath that he had not given
Mr. Dugan expensive shirts, ties
and cuff links.
Lano told reporters he had
made such a gift to the board
member and he had so informed
the jury. He said that he had
denied making other gifts to the
official, having in mind television
sets which the grand jury said
Lano purchased from the Service
Tire Corp.
Mr. Dugan hae admitted Know
ing Lano and described him as
“a pretty nice fellow." The board
member also told reporters that
he may have received birthday
gifts from Lano last year, but
that he could not be sure because
he had received about 300 gifts
at that time and could not re
member where all of them came
from.
Association Charged.
The presentment against Mr.
Dugan, calling for his ouster,;
charged that Lano was associated
with the board member as well
as with Joseph Leib, a member of
a special Police Investigatingj
Committee who was recommended
by Mr. Dugan, and Malcolm B.
Devers. president of the Congres
sional School of Arlington and
Alexandria.
In disqualifying themselves
from presiding over the cases of
Mr. Dugan and Mr. Chew. Judges
McCarthy and Medley said they
were “so situated in respect to
this case as to render it improper!
for them to preside at the trial."
This was believed to imply that
the judges stepped aside because!
of their personal acquaintancej
with the accused, who, as county!
officials, may have had a certain
amount of business ana social as-:
sociation with the judges
Both Mr. Dugan and Mr. Chew!
were charged with misfeasance,!
malfeasance and gross neglect of!
duty Mr. Dugan has attributed
the presentment against him to,
“politics" and said that three of'
the five grand jurors were his1
political enemies.
However, the law requires that
at least four jurors be in agree
ment before a presentment is
returned and it is understood that
all five were unanimous in re
turning the presentment against
him.

Far-Reaching Rent Bill
Covering Commercial
Property Prepared
By Francis P. Douglas
A proposed rent control law, I
reaching farther in some direc-j
tions than the World War II curbs
and even applying to commercial
rents, was in the works today.
Moving in another control di
rection. the Office of Price Stabili
zation issued an order which al
lows eating and drinking places to
raise prices on some of their menu
items. But they may not go above
the mark-up percentages they ap
plied before Korea and OPS said
it expected rollbacks where the
margins had been raised since last
June.
Approved by Johnston.
Housing Expediter Tighe E.
Woods told reporters about the
rent control program which he
said has been approved by Eco
nomic Stabilizer Eric Johnston.
The principal features of the
proposal are these:
General control of rents and ex
tending the controls to commer
cial rents which were not curbed
during World War II; possible
rollbacks of rents which are not
now under controls; ceilings on
rents of newly constructed build
ings and elimination of the pro
visions of the present law which
permit communities to lift con
trols under a local option arrange
ment.
Mr. Woods disclosed his plans
after the Senate had voted a
90-day extension of the present
rent-control law. This law expires
March 31 except in communities
which take affirmative action be
fore that date to keep it in effect
locally for another three months.
The House still must act.
Separate Law Here.
The District has a separate
rent-control law and many other
areas of the country are under
no controls at all through the
working of the local option pro
visions of the general law.
The restaurant price order is
effective April 1 but individual
restaurants are given until August
1 to come into full compliance.
In describing the order, OPS
said it requires a restaurant to
give “the same dollar value of
food per dollar of sales" that it
did prior to last July 1. The regu
lation applies to boarding houses,
cafeterias, taverns, soda foun
tains, athletic stadiums, hot dog
carts and other eating places in
addition to restaurants.
Marion W. Isbell, head of the
OPS restaurant branch, said in his
opinion fewer than half of the
eating places will raise prices in
April if food prices do not go up.
And he added that he does not
expect food prices to rise.
The pricing formula does not
apply to specific items but to the
restaurant’s whole food bill and
its total sales. This will permit
a restaurateur to raise prices on
certain items but to keep other
prices down in obtaining his gen
eral mark-up.

The Federal Spotlight
Straight Pay for Overtime
Considered by House Group
By Joseph Young
Serious discussions are going on in the House Appropriations!
Committee about the possibility of lengthening the Government's;
work-week where needed to 44 hours without paying premium over-'
time rates, it was disclosed today.
The situation was discussed in detail by the House Appropria
tions subcommittee handling they
1952 Treasury-Post Office money i
bill, as shown by transcripts of ]
the hearings, released today. The j
full committee
will report the
bill on Friday.

week, it's not likely that the
House Appropriations Committee
will attach any such rider to the]
Treasury-Post Office and other!
subsequent bills. j.
The subcommittee members j
point out that current Federal’
employe overtime payment rates;
are a matter of substantive law
and cannot be changed through!
an appropriation bill amendment.]
Any such rider would be subject;
to a point of order.
However, it’s likely that the ap-j
propriations group will recommend ]
to Congress that regular legisla-;
tion be enacted to enable the j
Government to work its employes,
when necessary on a 44 or 48
hour week, with straight rates in
excess of 40 horns.
At present. Federal employes
earning up to $2,900 a year get;
time-and-a-half for overtime be
yond 40 hours a week. The over
time rate then decreases as the]
salary gets higher.
In questioning Treasury officials, ]
Chairman Gary expressed the ]
view that the Government should]
be able to work its employes over
time, when necessary, without
premium overtime rates.
"This country was not built on
a 40-hour week, and I am begin
ning to have serious doubts as to]
whether we can defend it on a
40-hour week,” the Virginian de
clared.
He was joined by another sub
committee member. Representa
tive Fernandez, Democrat, of New
Mexico, in advocating a revision
of present overtime rates in Gov
ernment.
Subcommittee members declared
that a 44-hour week would enable
many agencies to save money by
eliminating the necessity of hir
ing new employes.
Mr. Fernandez also expressed
the view that many Federal work
ers would be willing to go on a 44
or 48 hour week at straight time

PRAISE—Representative Reams,
Democrat-Independent, of Ohio
had some nice words to say about
Government employes on the
House floor the other day on the
anniversary of the civil service
law. He said:
"We should always remember
the many loyal men and w-omen
throughout the country who, un
der civil service, have worked
anonymously at their tasks to
build the greatest Government in
the world. They are the ones who
have made it possible for the Na
tion to carry on and prosper. They
are the ones v’ho have put into
action the laws w’hich this Con
gress made. They are tne ones
who have made the policies of this
country both on domestic and for
eign issues.
"We must not forget them nor
ignore them. Too often they have
been ridiculed by the press and
the public as lazy and inefficient.
But we should remember that the
greatest Government, serving the
most productive Nation and the
freest and happiest people in
the world, could not have been
conducted by a civil service of
second-rate people.
"If we are to continue to main
ain an efficient civil service and
create a desire among young peo
ple to enter Government work, we
must treat them fairly. We must
realize they constitute the motive
power of this Government. We
must face our responsibility to
them and bring the cost of living
dowm to w'here they can live, or
their income up to where they
can buy.”
