Junior college district is probably a
'goocf buy' for all within boundaries
Residents of Deschutes, Crook, Jef
ferson, and parts of Wasco, Lake, and
Klamath counties will vote on January
30 whether or not to establish a Cen
tral Oregon Area Education District.
Purpose of the district will be, if ap
proved by the voters, to take over op
eration of the Central Oregon College
from the Bend school district, which
has operated the school since It was
.At Its inception, the college oper
ation was not a costly one. But the
school grew, and grew. For a few years
the Bend district was spending a good
ly portion of Its annual budget for op
eration of the college.
In recent years the state of Ore
gon has made funds available for par
tial support of the school. As a result,
costs to taxpayers of the Bend district
have dropped to the present level,
around two mills each year.
For those residents of Deschutes
county within the Bend district, then,
the question on January 30 will be
something like this:
Do I want to vote to establish a
larger district, to pay about the same
amount I am' now paying, for the op
eration of the college?
From a strictly selfish point of
view, the answer should be in the af
firmative. For the formation of a larger dis
trict will furnish the school a much
more solid base than it now has, and
allow it to function on a more usable
basis than it now docs.
There have been times in past
years when the entire future of the in
stitution was In doubt. Whenever vot
ers turned down the Bend district's
budget the natural question was wheth
er or not the district could continue to
afford the luxury of the college opera
tion. The larger district should elimi
nate this question in the future.
Then, too, formation of a new dis
trict will allow the school to set up Its
own campus and offer both day and
evening programs, Instead of confining
itself to evening programs as it has' in
the past. The chances of the Bend dis
trict alone establishing a separate
campus, building new buildings. etc
are poor, if recent Indications are any
guide. . ... v
What does the new district offer
to those persons who now are not in
volved in the operation of the college?
For one thing, it offers the. oppor
tunity to build a stronger Institution for
the young people of the area. A regu
lar college day program. vith: sche
duled system of bus transportation, will
draw considerably more students from
Crook and Jefferson counties, in parti
cular, than it is possible -to attract at
Second, it offers an opportunity to
build a financially and educationally
sound institution, at a very minimum
of cost. This will be no "country club"
institution, if we judge prospective
board members correctly. The admin
istration of the school apparently has
been cured of the grandiose idoas.whicli
led to the formation of the 111 - fated
basketball team a few years ago. There
is little intention that the first perma
nent building the school put up should
be a student union, as once was the
Third, it offers an opportunity to
make sure the school remains open to
youngsters from.their community with
out any tuition charges. There has been
snnio feeling expressed in the past that
the Bend district should make extra
charges for those students from outside
the district, who were, in effect, only
paying about two-thirds as much for
their education as youngsters from
within the district.
Fourth, it assures youngsters from
these areas of at least two years of
college. In California, now, about half
of cacli high school's graduatltiK class
finds it can go on to school only at a
local junior college. Other institutions
are too crowded for thorn.
New CIA chief had record
of war prof its from U.S.
By Driw Pearson
WASHINGTON. With eight
high officials fired from the Ei
senhower administration for con
flicU of interest, it would seem
mandatory Uiat both Democrats
and republicans take a very close
look at tiie conflict-of-interest is
sue before appointing and eon-
firming new men.
John A. McCone, picked to re.
place Allen Dulles as head of the
vitally important Central Intern
gence Agency, has a record which
is interesting on three counts:
1. He has made more money out
of Uncle Sam on war contracts
than perhaps any other man now
working for the government.
2, He has had a continuing close
financial connection with the Hen
ry J. Kaiser interests to which, as
Under Secretary for Air. he gave
a very interesting quickie contract
for making (lying boxcars C-11P
in the record time of 10 days, at
a price three times greater than
that of Kaiser's competitor, Fair
child. 3. He I shrewd and ablo, which
accounts not only for his capacity
for making money but for his agil
ity In keeping high government
positions under both Republicans
and Democrats.
When MdCone came up for con
firmation as ' chairman of the
Alomie Energy Commission on
July 3, 1958, he let slip one inter
esting fact which puts him in a
position of having had a possible
conflict of interest. Answering a
question from Sen. Clinton Ander
son (D.. .N.M..), he said: i
Still Close to Kair
"Yes. I have some business re-
lalionships with Kaiser, inasmuch
as a jointly owned company. 25
per cent of which is owned by
liondy (Joshua licndy Corp. of
which McCone owns all the stock)
and 50 per cent is owned by Kai
ser Aluminum, has a long-range
contract to transport Kaiser s
bauxite from Jamaica to Baton
Rouge.'" . ...- .;v . t ,
Vet when McCone was being In
vestigated by the late Sen. 'Styles
Bridges R., N.H.) and the Senate
Armed Services Subcommittee re
garding his quickie C-119 contract
to Kaiser, ha claimed: i have
had no business relationship with
Kaiser for years. . '.I ; havo .no
benefit to gain from the affairs of
his companies. The statement
therefore that I was a link in Hen
ry Kaiser's 'chain of influence'
should bo corrected."
Nonetheless, , Senator Bridges
showed Jliat McCone went, , to'
amazing lenguis to swncn part or
a C-119 flying boxcar contract
away 'from Fairchild in Hagers
town.. Md., to Kaiser at Willow
Run. Mich., at a cost figure which
turned out to be $1,339,140 per
plane as against Fairchild s 260,-
000. It all began over a luncheon
between Henry J. Kaiser and Un
der Secretary McCone after Kai
sers venture in the auto industry
had been 'a flop.
A third congressional hearing,
Sept, 25, 1946, shows the close fi
nancial kinship between McCone
and Kaiser'and why it was possi
ble lor Kaiser to barge in on Mc
Cone, have luncheon with him, and
walk out witli a multimillion-dollar
contract as good as signed.
This third hearing prolwd the
phenomenal war, profits rolled up
by bolh McCone and Kaiser when
Uie.v..w'cre shipbuilding partners
during the war, and when Ihey
parlayed tut investment of $100,-
000 into a profit of $4,423,000.
McCone was then president of
tlio California Shipbuilding Co.,
organized about one year before
Pearl Harbor when Todd Ship
building put up $30,000," with an
other $30,000 coming from Uie
Betchcl McCone Parsons 'Com
pany, Henry Kaiser, and other
companies associated with Kaiser
and Bctcliel McCone in building
Boulder Dam.
Phenomenal War Profits
This combino made a killing.
Uncle Sam needed slrtps. was will
ing to pay any price for them,
and the Todd - McCone Kaiser
combine went to town, though la
Irr Todd got out and left the West
Coast field to kaiser and McCone
This was really the start that put
Kaiser into steel, aluminum, and
various oilier bminesse today,
and which made McCone one of
tiie wealthy independent ship oper
ators of the USA. .
According to the sworn state
ment of Ralph E, Casey of the
General Accounting Office before
the House Merchant Marine Com
mittee in 1946:
"II would seem when profits
from government contracts paid
from public funds soar to such
astronomical heights in proportion
to invested capital, someone
should come forward with a satis
factory explanation."
He went on to testify: "The Cal
ifornia Shipbuilding Corp. was in
corporated Jan. 6. 1941, and the
entire cash Investment represent
ed by 1.000 shares of capital stock
at a par value of $100 consisted of
$50,000 invested by the Todd Ship
yards and $50,000 invested by 10
companies affiliated with Henry
J. Kaiser.
"About a year later, on Feb. 19,
1942, a meeting was called for
the purpose of declaring dividends
out of the surplus." The minutes
of the meeting said:
" 'After a full discussion, upon
motion duly made. . .it was unan
imously resolved that a dividend
of $1,000 per share be, and the
same hereby is, declared."
- This, concluded GAO executive
Casey, was a profit of $1,000,000
on the investment of $100,000 with
in one year all at the expense
of Uncle Sam's shipbuilding busi
ness. Tin profitable partnership be
tween Kaiser and McCone contin
ued until it rolled up a war profit
of $44,423,000 and, according to
McCone's own testimony, the as
sociation Is' continuing in the form
of a joint' shipping line today. In
between McCone, as Undersec
retary of Uie Air Force, helped
swing one of the juiciest airplane
contracts in history to Henry Kaiser.-

Oregon to have to lift own bootstraps
The University of Oregon's Bureau
of Business Research each month sur
veys economic conditions In various
lines of endeavor in the state. Each
year It tries to make some sense out of
scores of economic indicators, and tries
to give a short-range forecast of the
state's economy. Past predictions of
this nature have been pretty accurate,
particularly when compared with other
predictions in the same field.
This year's predictions were han
dled very quickly. The Immediate out
look for Oregon, according to Wesley
Ballalne, the bureau's director, is for
solid progress, but not as rapid progress
as (he country as a whole.
Ballalne then went on to examine
a number of factors, to sec what lie
could come up with over the next dec
ade. Ills examination and method is
too lengthy to deal with here, but here's
his answer:
"The outlook for the next decade,
as seen in the closing days of lOtil, is
for a continued growth of business, em
ployment, and population in the Paci
fic Coast states. However, it will be at
a diminished rate compared, to the
past two decades and will be opposite
to the national growth, which will be at
an Increasing rate, ir the Pacific Coast
is broken into t lie northern two states
and California, it appears that the Cal
ifornia rate of growth will continue to
exceed substantially the rate of growth
of Washington and Oregon."
The basic reason for the prediction,
In the case of Oregon, is (hat the state's
Income depends in such large part on
lumbering and fanning, both of which
continually are seeking to reduce em
ployment through greater efficiency.
In other words, those who expect
a groat growth in Oregon In the next
few years will have to help pull up on
the state's bootstraps, if much progress
is to be made.
