UNDERSTAND OR NOT. YOU HAVE TO l*AY
NEW YORK — dr — A contest to decipher and clarify a 212 word sentence appearing in last year * federal income tax guide produced no winner* last night but clarified at least one point—understand it or not, you still have to pay.
The winner is really the treasury department,” said Dr. Rergen F.vans, moderator of the CBS-TV panel show "The Last Word” which debates pro per usage of English.
To which panelist Inez Robh added: "It always is.”
The closest any of nearly 700 contestants came to rewriting the sentence in "simplified English" was Page A Mead, a sales engineer of Grosse Pointe Woods, Mich. His entry was judged to contain five mistakes.
He was awarded a copy of the hook "Simplified English,” a Bible, a set of the Encyclopedia Britannica, and Evans’ "personal admiration for his being able to understand the sentence at all.”
Present for the announcement was Sen. Arthur W. Watkins (R-Utah), who initiated the contest Mar. 20. Watkins offered the first two prizes himself after encountering the marathon sentence on page * of the Internal Revenue Service booklet "How to Prepare Your Income Tax Return on Form 1040A.”
Bradley Points To Blocks In Current Defense Setup
WASHINGTON—*The present military organization has made it possible for one service to block the flow of information on requests between the Defense Department and field commanders, Gen. Omar N. Bradley told Congress today.
Bradley testified before the House Armed Services Committee in support of President Eisenhower’s defense reorganization proposals.
The proposals include changes which Eisenhower said are necessary to let orders go from the defense secretary and Joint Chiefs of Staff direct to the commanders of unified forces in the field, without passing through the hands of the secretary of the Army, Navy or Air Force. Such secretaries have acted as "executive agents”
of the Defense Department in the chain of command.
Bradley, a five-star general who commanded the 12th Army Group in World War II and later served as Army chief of staff and first chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the committee:
"I understand that in the past there have been occasions where information or suggestions from a unified commander were retained bv the executive agent without the Joint Chiefs of Staff being aware of the request or the information sent in by the unified commander.
"There have also been occasions where orders were transmitted to unified commanders from above without the executive agent being informed. This also leads to confusion.”
Bradley spoke up strongly for more authority for the secretary of defense.
When asked how any law could give the secretary more power than the "direction, authority and control” specified in the present staute, Bradley said he thinks Congress should repeal the existing provision that the Army, Navy and Air Force must be “separately administered.”
This recommendation of the President has been hit hard by some committee members who say it would weaken Congress’ authority to decide on dividing defense appropriations among the services.
But Bradley, who served as a consultant in drawing up the administration proposals, said he thinks the words have been in
terpreted by some in such a way as to conflict with the over-all authority intended for the secretary of defense.
