CONGRESS : Sharpen Payroll Axe Economy - minded GOP house members, axe in hand, were eying the big federal payroll in their an- nounced drive to scale U. S. ex- penditures 12 billion dollars below the 1946 budget of 41 billion dollars. Declaring that there is hardly a government department that does not have twice as many employees as needed, Representative Taber tRep., N. Y.), chairman of the house appropriations committee, as- serted that 1,0O0,0O0 workers could be chopped off the payroll of 2,300,- 000 without seriously impairing services. Not more than 500,000 em- ployees in all are needed, Taber said. "We are going to cut down govern- ment expenditures to a point where the budget can be balanced, a payr merit made on the national debt, and we will still have room to re- duce taxes." Taber snorted. Labor Re/orms Sen. Joe Ball (Rep., Minn.) and Rep. George Case tRep., S. DA pushed labor reform in early ses- sions of the 8Oth congress, Ball proposing sweeping measures for corrective legislation. First, Bail called for prohibition of secondary boycotts and making labor organizations liable for violat- ing contracts. Then, he introduced legislation to ban all union and closed shop agreements and maintenance of membership contracts. Finally, BaII proposed to decen- tralize collective bargaining to pre- vent the tieup of an entire industry through general negotiations. The new Cage bill introduced in the house permits issuance of in- junctions to prevent strikes impair- ing the public welfare; forbids un- ions to coerce employees, 'seize prop- erty in disputes, withdraw essential maintenance workers, or order walk- outs with majority approval of mem- bers; and makes union liable for damages resulting from breach of contract. The bill also grants the states authority to ban the closed shop. ITALY: Seeks Aid Leaving a hungry and discon- tented populace behind him, Pre. mier Alcide de Gasperi hurried to Washington, D. C., to seek substan- tial financial assistance from the U. S. to prevent political and eco- nomic chaos in Italy. Neg,th.tions centered around a billion dollar loan first discussed between Italian and U. S. officials at the time of the Paris peace con- ference. Italy would not be permit- ted to apply the proceeds against its reparations bill of $360,000,000 but would use the funds for food, raw material and industrial equip- ment. A substantial loan would help Italy rebuild its once lucrative tour- ist trade. Italy's "biggest industry" before the war, the trade is severe- ly crippled because of the destruc- tion of hotels and their requisition- ing for housing, lack of transport and an unfavorable exchange rate. BRITAIN: Land Control Proceeding along the path of in. creasing control of property to as- sure its widest possible use for pub- lie benefit, the Labor government of Britain moved to regulate the sale and use of real estate. Under the town#and country plan: ning bill introduced in parliament and headed for passage despite con- servative opposition, the govern. merit would compel the sale of un. developed but prospectively valuable real estate at existing prices. Only in cases of hardship would prices above the prevailing market value be paid. In addition, the government would control the use or reconversion o! property to prevent industrial blight, preserve the countryside around tit. ies and provide recreation grounds, and allow room "for breathing" in overcrowded areas. The govern- ment also would regulate the post- ing of billboards. STATE DEPARTMENT: Happy Day "There are two happy days a man has in public life," former Sec- retary Byrnes told British Ambas- sador Kerr. "Tilere is the day a rnan is elected to office. Then there is the day he quits." January 7, 1947, therefore was a happy day far,he dapper little South Carolinian when he stepped down from his high post in the Truman adminis- tration. It was a happy day, too under the Byrnes' standard--for Gen- eral of the Army Marshall who was named to succeed him. But as Byrnes implied, Mar- :ii![[ [i[![ii :: ![i?':;:[: Byrnes shaH's cheer was destined to be short-lived as he took over direc. tion of the nation's international af- fairs. Byrnes had a tough time tus- sling with the Russians over com. pletion of peace treaties for the axis satellites and Marshall faced the even tougher job of framing pacts for Germany and Austria. Although friendly with Russian leaders. Marshall is no admirer of Communism or , Communist tactics. :i Just before being named to o00co. he blasted Chinese  Reds for risking the :'welfare of their : cntry to obtain L power and re. i sorting to untruths ; to tar the V. S. Some observers Mrshali also read in Mar- shall's appointmen! an effort by President Truman to build the general up as his sucges. sor in 1948. Should Marshall make a name for himself in the state de- partment, his work there plus his prestige as the No. 1 military chibl in World War II would give the Dem. ocrata a strong candidate to efft dissatisfaction with the Truman re- gime in the reconversion perisd.

"That sum is only the first cost of the most devastating epidemic in foundation history'," he said. "With the number of cases above the 25,000 mark and foundation funds at a low ebb, a minimum of $24,000,000 must be raised In the 1947 March of Dimes drive so that the unified attack against the disease can continue." Average cost of each case of in- fantile paralysis is $1,200. On this basis the 25 states badly hit by the epidemic face the stupendous cost Of $26,400,000 chargeable to the 1946 epidemic alone, national headquar. ters estimated.
