The Bend Bullerin, Sqturday, March 12. 1955
Juif a Moment, Please!
The danger of writing a pre-spring editorial is that
the weather may change before the piece gets into type.
So this will be written in the past tense, just to play
safe. .
It was a grand weekend, and a beautiful Monday.
The temperature soared into the sixties, high for early
March, and the Mirror Pond was silvered by a gentle,
rippling breeze. Smoke billowed from burning weeds, as
ambitious folks cleared their yards.
And to the wesi. the Cascades, white to the timber
line as a result of the heavy snow in the mountains,
were majestic, in March sunshine and under the light of
a full moon.
All this had its beginning only three days after Bend
experienced its chilliest weather of the year, one below
zero, with a minus 14 reported at nearby Shevlin.
Which brings to mind a story that was going the
rounds here as the March chill settled over the Deschutes
"So you don't like Central Oregon weather? Well,
just wait a moment!"
Can Spring Be Far Behind?
A Modern-Day Aladdin
(Atlanta Constitution)
At one time or another, almost every person who
knows the story of Aladdin and his wonderful lamp has
wished for such a magic thing a lump one can rub to
make wishes come true.
Some eight million Americans and their number
increases daily have discovered a sort of Aladdin's
lamp which supplies magic money to make wishes and
dreams come true.
. There is no mystery about it . . . no turbaned genie
appears to carry out the wish. It is simpler than that
and sounder. It is the U. S. Treasury's Payroll Savings
Plan surer than any genie out of a book of fairy tales.
This one is told in the savings books of the millions who
have learned a simple lesson the money deducted from
your payroll check or cash is money you never miss. But
it's always there, growing, earning interest, increasing
every week and month in United States Savings Bonds.
' ;it is the magic lamp which, when the boy or girl of
the family is ready to' go to college, business, or art
school, produces the money to pay the billB money saved
from a payroll savings plan begun when they were babies.
It is the lamp which lights the way through the dark-
' ness of unexpected illness and hospital bills . . . the lamp
which show, the way to buy a home ... to create that
cash reserve which produces the best sort of security and
confidence. '' ' ti ......
!"But I can save so little!"
i Okay. Okay. You can save so little. Let's say $2 per
week when the child is born. Sure, that's only $104 a
yeaf, but keep on with that arithmatic. What is it when
the;boy is 15 years old and you are beginning to think
with him will it be college or will he go to some good
trade scholl? Right then, when he is 15, that $2 per week
hasbecomn the magic amount of more than $1900 in
Savings Bonds. .
'. Do your own arithmetic. Try $5 a week over a span
of years or more. It's magic.
! It is magic because it's systematic, automatic, and
;Each of us might cheat if it were left to us. We'd
come to a week when. things were a little tight and we'd
say that. this week we wouldn't put the savings in but
, would double up next week. That would be it; We'd find
more excuses for further failures.
!The Payroll Savings Plan does it automatically,
systematically. You don't have to lift a finger.
'.When you've paid for a Savings Bond, you get the
bond, and you put it away. Before you know it, you've
paid for another. . . .and so it grows, the magic
money the money you never miss the money that's
always yours. And after a few years pass, you can rub
AluHdin' lamp you can wish for something like your
sonior daughter's schooling . . . the substantial down pay
ment on a home or a small farm. . . ..or cash reserve
agnjnst "troubles," and the magic money will be there
your money that you saved in U. S. Savings Bonds and
never missed.
'. It's good for the country, too. Even bunkers have a
tough time explaining about inflation. But they will tell
you; it is a condition which developes when there is a lot
of fnoney in circulation and a shortage of goods. The
competition to buy them sends prices up and the govern
ment has to print moro money, and so we get into one of
those inflation tornadoes. Savings of any kind takes
money out of circulation. It slows down inflation. It as
sists the government in managing the national debt.
That's good for the country.
;But while we arc all glad of that the big thing is
that the Payroll Savings Plan is at its best as a personal
assistance plan one which benefits first and last the
savir and his family. It makes a fellow work better, feel
bettier, look better, to know that every week and month he
hai saved something that he isn't spending all he
And best of all it's magic money because u fellow
never misses it . . . but it's his all the while, growing and
earning against that day when he needs an Aladdin's lamp
to riiake a wish or a need tome true.

Federal Agencies in Hot Water
NKA Washington Correspondent
tically every one ot the so-called
'independent" and also-called
'quasi-judicial" regulatory agen
cies of federal government Is now
in hot water right up to its mul
tiple chins.
A few examples will give the pilch:
Federal Communications Com
mission is on the pan over charges
of using coached witnesses who
have now recanted their testimony
against Kdward Lamb in his appli
cation for renewed of an Erie, Pa.,
TV license.
Federal Trade Commission, re
organized last May and now re
viewing some 1-1, 000 past decisions,
is charged by labor union leaders
with scuttling the consumers' in
Civil Aeronautics Board has split
on straight political parly -lines In
five major decisions in two years.
National Uibor Relations Board
has heen without a general counsel
since Dee. W. Unions now charge
that NI.RB is antilahor in its' deci
sions, just as business interests in
Democratic day charged the agen
cy with being prolabor.
Federal Power Commission faces
big tests in handling of natural
gas and Hells Canyon power li
cense eases involving public ver
sus private interests.
The Kisenhower administration
is apparently attempting a rejuv
enation of the superannuated In-ter-state
Commerce Commission
and is finding the going tough.
In oversimplified summary the
main troubles are changes ill top
personnel and changes in ndininis
Iralion policy guidance. Much of
this is the natural result of the
shift from Democratic to Republi
can control of government. But
even after two years, the shift is
not complete and there is much
Many Kisenhower administration
appointees to fill vacancies on the
boards and commissions have been
held up in Congress. This has de
layed the handling of pending ease
There Is a further complication
at the second level of personnel in
these regulatory agencies, just be
low the 5 to 11 top members who
are presidential appointees. This is
in the "examiners" who make the
preliminary investigations of com
plicated business situations, on
which the boards and commission
pass the final judgment.
There are L'77 ol these hearing
examiners in the government now.
Their pay is $11,000 to Sl.'vOOO n
year. They are supposed to be le-1
gal and technical experts in their I
respective fields o( railroads, com-
niunications or power. They are I
supposed to be non-pailisan. im-1
partial and as pure as honest judg-
The contention of many business:
executives and corioration lawers!
particularly those who lose easel
betore the regulatory agencies is '
administration philosophy.
GOP extremists argue that all
Democratic holdovers in these ex
aminers jobs should be cleaned
out and replaced by deserving Re
publicans who would then stop per
secuting business.
This brings up Ihe second main
question, which is policy guidance
for these regulatory agencies.
It is only natural that the Re
publicans have tried to influence
thinking of these boards and com
missions, so that they will nana
down decisions more in harmony
with GOP idea.
The easiest way to do this is by
appointing to the quasi- judicial
agencies men who will promise in
advance to carry out Administra
tion policies. A more subtle way is
through the indirect influence ol
politicians, interested cabinet offi
cers and even the White House it
self. How much of this goes on is
rarely ever revealed, but in the
end result the slip shows.
The nonpartisan view of this net
work of regulatory agencies is that
they should be as free and unin
fluenced us the courts. After all,
they were created by Congress to
carry out specific laws for the gen
ral public good.
Italian Senate'
Passes Accords
ROME (UP) Premier Mario
Scelba, with ratification of thel
West German rearmament treaties
completed, turned his attention to
day to outstanding domestic issues
he hoped to settle before his forth
coming visit to the United States.
The bitterly anti-Communist pre
mier scored a major political vic
tory last night when the Senate
approved the Paris Accords by a
thumping 57-vote majority. The
vote was 139 for to 82 against.
It made Italy the second of the
seven Western European Union
nations to complete parliamentary
processes of ratification. Britain
was first:. In both countries, the
rearmament pacts now await only
Ihe formal signatures of the heads
of slate.
William Fulbright made clear to
day he will not soften his investi
gation of the market boom be
cause of this week's sharp drop in
stock prices.
He said he can see no justified
connection between the market de
cline and the Senate Banking Com
mitte's "friendly study" of the
sharp rise in stock prices in the
past 18 months. The Arkansas
Democrat is chairman of the com
mittee and steering the investiga
The market is "mighty wek" if
the investigation is causing stock
prices to drop, he said.
The market dropped in four of
the five sessions this week, add
ing up to the biggest one-week de
cline in 15 years. Yesterday's drop
of about two billion dollars in val
uation of issues listed on the new
York stock exchange brought the
week's total loss to about seven
billion dollars.
Some Wall Street experts attrib
uted the loss partly to recommend
ations for stock purchases be
raised from the present 60 per
cent to at least 75 per cent. They
also suggested that the margins
be boosted to 100 per cent, putting
stocks purchases on an all-cash
basis, if the market continuse to
go up.
The theory is that buying on
margin, or partly on credit, is
done extensively by speculators
and seldom by long range invest
ors. It is the Federal Reserve
Board's responsibility to fix mar
gin requirements. Its chairman,
Villiam McChesney Martin Jr.,
will testify Monday.
PAHOA, Hawaii (UP) The sub
terranean fire pits of Hawaii's Kil
auea volcano may be simmering
down for another few years of
slumber, according to seismologist
Dr. Jerry Eaton.
Eaton said his instruments at
the Hawaii Volcano Observatory
were recording earthquakes at a
rate of one every three or four
minutes yesterday, as compared
to a two-a-minute pace earlier In
the week.
Most of the earth shocks were too
slight to be noticed except by the j
sensitive needle of the seismo-'
graph, but tremors that could be !
physically felt were coming every j
two to three hours. j
Eaton said he viewed the situa- j
tion as "a little more hopeful," 1
but added he and other Hawaii
residents were "holding our
breath" until the quakes die out
completely. j
Civil Defense Director Peter
Pakele said the 1500 townspeople
of Pahoa still were on alert for
evacuation if a new eruption oc
curs, and some 500 residents of
previously vacated villages were
still living in temporary shelters
here and at Olaa, 12 miles away.
Parkele said the volcanic lis.
ures which spouted fiery lava in
last week's specutacular eruptions
were quiet and a 3500 foot "es
cape road" was being bulldozed
around last week's lava flows.

Work on Bill
SAI.KM (UP) The milk bill
Hep. Elmer Deetz, Canhy dairy
man, promised he would draft if
the milk marketing control act
was repealed has been completed
and will probably be ready to go
to committee Tuesday, he said
Deetz, Ihe dairy farmer who
clashed with the Milk Marketing
Administration over his sale of raw
milk by the gallon Jug to jiis
neighbors, said the bill is designed
to protect Ihe producer. The milk
marketing control act was re
pealed by the voters last November.
Deet said the measure in no
way attempts to control the di
Iributor other than to assure Ihe
producer a minimum price for his
milk. The aim of this, he said wa
to protect Ihe producer in event
of price wars between distribu
tors. He said in previous milk
wars, the producers had to bear
the brunt, sometimes to the point
of being priced out ot business.
The bill provides for strict ac
counting anil auditing of distribu
tors to assure producers of the
exact amount ot milk sold as top
grade, and the amount going in
to manufacturing.
It provides that the producer's
quota or contract Willi the dis
tributor will assure the producer
that too many of ihe examiners ; of a given daily amount of milk'
sold as grade A at lop price, based!
on his tour lowest months of pro
duction Ihe preceding year.
