Letter to editor Stop fretting by Peter Edson just As the big budget cutters in the Eisenhower administration thought they were getting a Nice Start on lopping off appropriations for government Public works along come a couple of rude awakenings to upset their Sweet dreams of Economy. The rude awakenings All Stem from the brightened prospects for an armistice in Korea and better relations with the new regime in Russia following the death of Premier Stalin. As a result of these two developments the Stock Market does a nose dive. It is feared that defense production orders will be Cut Back. The worriers begin won Dering if that will cause a mild recession in the u. S. The upshot of All these things is that there have begun to rain Down on Washington requests for the Eisenhower administration to. Make some plans to re Lieve a possible depression. Demands for this kind of action come not just from people like Cio president Walter Reuther who wants president Eisenhower to Call a conference to draft a worksheet for full production and full Republican politicians from various Industrial areas around the country Are writing to their congressmen probably Button holing those who went Home for easter week vacation. This new development reverses the pressure exerted on Washington before Stalin died. The line then was Cut to the Bone All that awful waste and extravagance in Washington to give the taxpayers a now its Good grief Why does t Washington plan something to break a the answer to the worriers is that they can Stop fretting. Washington has on tap plans for at least billion Worth of Public works. Actual construction could be started just As fast As Congress appropriated the Money. The Eisenhower administration had nothing to do with the making of these plans. They were made by new dealers and fair dealers. The republicans might not want to use these particular plans for that reason. But if they wanted to Start something in a hurry All they d have to do is reach into the nearest filing Cabi nets to pull out a whole sheaf of plans in various stages of readiness. Breakdown of the billion estimate for Public works is roughly As follows army corps of projects Worth s3 billion at 1951 prices Bureau of Public plus Federal Aid plans for Miles of highways Esti mated to Cost billion As of april 1, 1951 Bureau of seven year program involving 350 projects Cost ing an estimated s2 billion. This is the big shelf of Reserve plans. A shelf of Small projects includes these general services administration plans to build Jor remodel Many u. S. Post office and Federal office buildings. Costs might Range anywhere from million to billion. Civil aeronautics administration Airport program has million unallocated out of its original seven year million program which has four years to run. In addition Caa has a million backing of unauthorized Airport improvement plans. Many of the projects planned several years ago As postwar depression stoppers might be found undesirable today. This would apply particularly to corps of engineers projects All of which have been authorized by Congress but Lack appropriation of Money. The authorized corps of engineers plans include 370 Rivers and harbours projects estimated to Cost billion and 580 flood control projects estimated to Cost billion. Today s construction costs Are higher. The billion reclamation program for the Western states includes 20 projects authorized by Congress for a total Cost of million. Of these three projects estimated to Cost million Are now being re studied to make sure they Are feasible. Incidentally rep. John p. By Drew Pearson one in Washington has had More ups and Downs during the last h months than president Eisenhower s brother in Law it. Col. Gordon Moore u. S. Army re tired. His ups and Downs Are unique even in Washington s unstable society. But As of today his ups far exceed his and As brother in Law Ike climbed to the peaks colonel Moore was mounting the Hills. Here in Brief is the colonel s Success Story. In february of 1952, colonel Moore and his attractive wife Mike sister hard put to meet their monthly Bills. They d recently bought a rather impressive Home and the going was Tough. They were even consider ing Selling their new Home for some ready Cash. At this crucial moment however o. Roy Chalk head of the newly organized inde pendent military air transport association offered colonel Moore a Job. He accepted at once. Chalk assigned the colonel to handle the association s relations with the Pentagon also Public relations of the association s 17-member . Chalk s selection of colonel Moore was not exactly an Accident. He had been thoroughly briefed on Moore s relationship to Ike and had handpicked the colonel Over the association s other candidate maj. Gen. Henry b. Sayler u. S. A., retired. At this Point Genera Eisenhower was still in Paris and even such supporters As sen. Henry Cabot Lodge were on tenterhooks As to whether he would return in time to give Battle to senator Taft for the Republican Nomina Tion. Then suddenly without warning on april 23, months after he was Moore was fired. He received the unexpected notice from Ben b. Managing director of the military air transport association informing him that he and the other employees in the Public relations office were fired with two weeks pay. Within a couple of Days however colonel Moore was rehired at the insistence of the association s Ike will win 1 faction led by Roy Chalk. A few weeks passed. Taft s strength seemed to be growing. To Many association members Taft was certain to get the nomination. Again with equal abruptness colonel Moore was fired. By now the Republican convention was Only a few Days away and the astute Roy Clark retained colonel Moore for another Job. He be came Washington representative of Chalk s own millionaire Chalk had not however put All his eggs in one political Basket. Only a few months previous he had also induced the in dependent military air transport association to buy a thousand Dollar table at the democrats Jefferson Jackson Day dinner. Full of Hope Chalk and colonel Moore went to Chicago for the Republican convention. Ike won. And Chalk who had bet on the right horse was Only too Happy to pick up the hotel Bill for the brother in Law of the Winner. Following the convention. Chalk returned to new York and his representative colonel Moore resumed work in Washington. A week later however Roy Chalk flew to Washington and made colonel Moore vice president of the trans Caribbean airlines. In less than six months colonel Moore had been hired three times fired twice and wound up As a vice president. Today colonel Moore is doing quite Well. He s no longer associated with Roy Chalk. But he s still in the airlines Money As a broker to the nonscheduled air lines. And just recently pan american airways the biggest in the business and the most expert at lobbying was making attractive Over Tures in his direction. War crimes prosecutor it often that who sends other people to jail is welcomed later by those he jailed. However such a tribute has just been paid to Joseph b. Keenan former no. 2 Man in the Justice department and former u. S. War crimes prosecutor in Japan. Keenan spent Many months in Tokyo after the end of the War. Sent some of its top Lead ers to jail for atrocities in the Philippines and for the attack on Pearl Harbor. But the other he went Back was cordially received by the emperor in the Japa Nese press and called on one of the War criminals he had convicted. He was Mamoru Shigemitsu Japan s foreign minister All during the War and sentenced to seven years in jail by Keenan s court. Shigemitsu. Whom i knew in peking when he was a second Secretary of the japanese embassy and i was a Young Newspaperman always seemed to me pro american. Keenan confirmed this impression said he did t want to prosecute him but the russians and other members of the court insisted on we were trying to get along with the russians in those Days. Whether Shigemitsu is pro american or not happens to be of great importance these for he May be the next Premier of Premier Yoshida fails of re election this month. Significantly. Shigemitsu received Keenan without bitterness said he Felt Japan s Only course was with the United states. Bouncing mayor Fahrettin gokay of Istanbul bounced into Washington the other Day then bounced on to Chicago and the West coast to attend various medical conventions. Mayor gokay sometimes called the la Guardia of Turkey has the Energy As the late mayor of new York and the same reputation for honesty. But mayor go Kay goes la Guardia one better. He is a doctor is in the United states to meet various psychiatric experts. Saylor of Pennsylvania has a Bill Pend ing to reauthorize All previous Recla mation projects and Start afresh. Bureau of Public roads stopped trying to tabulate state Highway construction plans two years ago because they changed so much. One of the big factors now holding up state Road programs is a shortage of engineers As Well As a shortage of state and Matching Federal funds. At the end of the War general services administration compiled a list of projects that might be built in every congressional District. Few of them of course will Ever be authorized. Out of Mil lion authorized for planning Only million has been appropriated. With this Money Osa has acquired Sites on 110 projects and has plans ready to Start building from 125 to Congress appropriates the Money. There has been Only million in Federal building since the War and Over Mil lion of that was in Washington.
