Today s Bible thought and them that Are turned Back from the lord and those that have not sought the lord nor enquired for Zephaniah the times daily tonic Man is arrogant in proportion to his ignorance. Man s natural tendency is to egotism. Man in his infancy of knowledge. Thinks that All creation was formed for Bulwer Lytton. Highway program the president s cry to Congress to please pass the Highway Bill or some Highway Bill goes unheard so this major item on the president s Agenda seems to be deader than a door Nail or a Mackerel. There will be no Highway program at All this year and maybe not next year. And this is passing strange because everybody really wanted a Highway pro Gram republicans and democrats liberals and conservatives. Everybody agrees that the country needs the roads very badly. Everybody agrees that the Money it would take to build them would be Money Well spent. No one questions the statement that the National defense picture is bad and will be bad until we have the Means of fast efficient transportation in Case of emergency by reason of air attack. And there is agreement that such a great system of superhighways would stimulate business and increase the productive capacity of the nation. So Why no program what stymied it there is no Highway program in Prospect because there was Complete disagree ment As to How it would be paid for. And would have to be paid for. The president s original proposal called for a Bond Issue which would to set aside in a special compartment and c not considered part of the National debt. Actually this seemed like playing tricks with words. However the real opposition to the president s plan developed of or the idea that the Bonds would carry interest and Many democrats looked askance at the idea of the government paying inter est to the kind of people who would be holding the Bonds. So the president s plan was killed. The democrats came up with the idea of paying for the Bonds with the proceeds of some special taxes. Quite Natu rally those who were going to have to pay these taxes were very much interested. The trucking Industry the tire Industry the Gas and Oil Industry All Hud Tail i a to give. And no tax program could be de Vised on Short notice that somebody did not take exception to. So there is no Bill at All. Perhaps if More careful study is Given to the subject a workable program can be arranged. But there will be much better Chance of this if there is a Little by parti san Effort so that there is no question of which party is going to gel the credit. Politics is at last partly to blame for the present stalemate. If the president and the democratic leaders had put their Heads together in the first place and proposed the idea As the joint work of both parties without giving credit to either one. It might have had clearer sailing. As it is regardless of whose fault it is the fact remains that a program which everyone agrees is needed is not being carried out. Parallel it is inti to not Trio parallel be tween the work of Tennessee s two Sena tors in recent weeks. Senator Kefauver led the fight against the present Dixon Yates contract. Senator Gore led the fight against the president s Highway Bill. Senator Kefauver succeeded in writing the private Power contract soil lord senator Gore succeeded in killing the Highway Bill. But senator Kefauver failed in his positive objective of getting an other steam Plant for Tva. Senator Gore failed to put Over his own Highway Bill. By Ukko Farson Washington president Eisenhower was planning to ire Harold Talbott Secretary of the air Force at his press conference last wednes Day when Talbott called on him at . And put up such an or eminent that Ike Fili ally Uriech to delay pc ton until he had the Accord further. Here or. President is some of the amazing record which you will find Only partially in the files of the Senate committee but in Lull in the confidential files of the air Force itself. One letter already made Public but not the Story behind it was written by to Nebolt on air Force stationery May 20. 1953, to his partner Paul Mulligan. The better rends Paul i Haven t forgotten the Ford mat Ter but i am a Little worried about the Best approach in there. Therefore i Haven t come. To any decision. I enclose herewith a note from Clinton David son who is a Friend of mine. You inight drop him a note and ask him at some convenient time when he is in new York to drop by and see you in our offices. I think if you explain to him in detail the line of work that you Are Doinik that he might really be of assistance to you. A Mere by. this reference to Clinton Davidson led to n Brief Cross examination it the july 21 Senate hearing As follows Tel Lott that Man is in the investment counsel ing work of some kind and i Don t sen. Mundl you mean or. Davidson is in in vestment Counselor Talbott i think that is he business he is in. I Don t know what else he has. And i ran into him in a very Peculiar Way. In other words. To Nebolt shrugged off his acquaintance with Davidson and even were under oath i Don t know what else he the True facts however make this statement look like a lie. More Talbott letters tile first incriminating fact is the note Talbott included in his letter to Mulligan. Dated May a 1953. It reads dear Harold i just came across a memorandum in my file to the effect that about six or seven months ago you introduced me to n or. Paul Mulligan. I said that i thought i could be of some assistance to or. Mulligan and you told me that he would get in touch with me by Tele phone. I have heard nothing from him since then but i still believe that i might be Able to assist him. With All Best wishes 1 am the letter was written on the stationery of Clin Ion Davidson. Box .190. Madison. N. J. Now let s see who is Clinton Davidson. It turns out that he is close to an old Friend o mine whom i exposed to the Truman administration Gen. In Rev Vaughnn and having reported in treat Delall on the unusual activities of general Vaughan it s Only fair to examine closely the activities of or. Davidson in connection with the Secretary of the air Force. Davidson knew Vaughan Well while Vaughn was around the while House and Vaughan once got the unsuspecting Harry Truman to write a letter to the civil aeronautics Board granting presiden tial permission in effect for Davidson s resort airlines to make stopovers in Miami. But having used the democrats Davidson turned on the democrats and contributed heavily to the republicans to Knock them nut of office. He contributed through chief gop Money Raiser Tal Boll to the reported tune of Davidson operates what s known As Estyle management corp. An investment counselling service lie also runs a Mcsorl airlines of Delaware which in turn owns so per cent of Heroit airlines of North Carolina. This airline has always specialized in package or charter flights to and from vacation areas. Suddenly and mysteriously be snarl airlines got into the Domestic freight business in 19m with some help from Talbott. This was a year alter Talbott had introduced Davidson in his partner Mulligan and Davidson had promised to be of Home assistance to Mulligan. Planes to a Friend resort airlines was Low bidder in n a nov earn in july. 1954. The Al Range incl is that it swirl bid in the contract he Rire it inv cargo planes. Davidson therefore must have Tell confident be would get the equipment. In any . He was Able to lease six an Force Mirs practically nver night. This might seem like a simple thing to do Muc c the air Force is with old s and ordinarily it does t take much pull to gel chg s from the air Force. However. The air Force s leasing policy has been Incon Sislene. And at the time Davidson wangled the six it happened to be agn Insl. Air Force policy to lease these planes to private nor lines. Hurriedly however. The policy was changed. And just to make the record the air Force also leased one c-411 apiece to iwo other Small airlines. More contracts on lop of this on Jan. 1. n so called log air contract from the air love to carry Jet engines Between air Force i Mulh Lynns. In february incidentally one of Kes ifs planes crashed it Hill air Force old ii Utah. Meanwhile. Talb Olfs Friend Daudson begun Nick log to get n couple of in Rte pm s from the air Force. These arc really hard to get for 18 months the an Force has been sufficiently Short of c-54 s thus. Ii has refused to lease any to private airlines and Talbot had made this Plain at a House appropriations heal ing on feb. A. 1955 in answer 10 question us to whether the air Force planned to Tuin any indie Lra Sporl. Planes Over to commercial operators he replied 1 think we can. Not Nuino. N depends on Llic want. If they want the pm a two Ninnis inter and despite his Flat no Tal Bolt made two pm s available to Davidson air line in Panl the lawyers came up with a fancy word to get around an Force polu a technically the two c a s Wen no leased but were to a lines a nigh n the same think.

I be thousands of tile Cabi nets Are now crowded on 11 floors in three buildings. There is a master Index file in the main building with nearly 17 million cards in it. There is a card and a file for everyone who Ever applied for a passport. For the fiscal year ending june 30. The staff turned out a record 499.9-11 passports and renewals. This was Over four a minute Lor every working Day. In june there was a record or nearly a. Minute. Gradually Over the years dead files in card boxes have been crowded into the cellars of the old buildings. cellars Hud served As cells for Confederate captives brought to Washington for questioning by whatever brass served As g-2 in or.

The civil War Wood shutters Are shut on the East and South exposures to keep out the broiling Washington sum Mer Sun. They work in Semi darkness in the High Sci linked rooms because that s cooler. There Are floor fans for the fee. 1. They can t have overhead fans because they might blow the passport papers out the unscreened windows. June was t so bad but july has been a scorcher. The hotter blonde miss Knight got the madder she got. She went to Congress for rent Money so she could move. She called in Bureau of stand Ards and census Bureau to design her some new machinery for record handling. She thinks one machine could be built to do this photo past ing and sealing in one operation like that. It May take a couple of years to get these machines. But sometime about then it should be possible to get an american passport in a hurry. Sen. George w. Malone. For Nev went out to his Home state a while Back to hold hearings on a project.
