Are Zonians
Paying
A Sales Tax?
The biggest (S60-lb) man In
Congress, Rep. T. Jame Tumul-
ty (D-NJ) brought the house
down thU morning with his ob-
servations about fertility In the
tropics.
It all started with a report on
the 19S5 net Income of the Ca-
nal which Tumulty read at the
hearing this morning. He point-
ed out that the report Indicates
the Company had a net operat-
ing income o over $2,000,000.
"These employes then art
paying two million snore than
it costs the rovernment for
these rood. In effect they aro
paying a tax im'lar to salos
Ux in the States."
The Oarznata Bill, Tumulty
said stipulated that employe*
should not be charged for oper-
ating the company when t**
company exists for the primary
Surpose of supporting Interna-
onal shipping.
These employes art-forced to
live here in order to do this.
They couldn't very well com-
mute to Hoboken, could they?
Then, it's natural for people to
get married. Children hav a
habit of happening."

Gov. Seybold will have some
explaining to do, if he is to
satisfy one of the House Commit-
teemen's quest for information.
Referring to an "adverse re-
port' submitted by the Governor
on the GarmaU bill, H. R. 6917,
Rep. T. James Tumulty (D-N.J.)
noted today that Paragraph 5 of
the Seybold report stated:
"An important question that
would be raised by the enactment
of such a bill would be whether
the statutory exclusion of certain
elements of cost from prices to
employes requires or implies the
necessary inclusion of all other
ig wmfc '^UttH^hemt^.
proposed law would require the
recovery of all other costs, cer-
tain employe prices would have
to be raised, not lowered. In most
instances, however, there would
have to be reductions in prices
which undoubtedly would placa
the cost of living well bellow
Stateside and would result in hid-
den subsidies to employes
Tumulty remarked that he con-
sidered this an admission by the
Governor that if Garmatz' Bill is
passed that certain costs will
then be excluded from prices
charged employee.
"The effect is net so impor-
tant as the questionwhat is go-
ing oo here?1.
He added: "I hope the Govern-
or can explain it to us.**

wert
After a lengthy meeting last
night, the half dozen or so firms
who import and wholesale liquor
In Panama and Colon came to
terms on about a half dozen
which they wfll re-
to Panama govern-
today In order to
procedure for eell-
lscount liquor,
i other matters they
le to agree.
One dealer seemed to ram up
the feelings of the group when
he remarked:
"The whole thing is just a;
mess."
He added that the cost of mak-
ing, say a 3-bottle sale of tax-
discount liquor to an authorised
Canal Zone Individual would be
so out of proportion under the
government's present regula-
tions that he doubted If he
would attempt It unless matters
could be simplified.
Wholesalers and lmporers
want simpler techniques both for
selling to clubs and to indivi-
duals.
They also want to limit sales
to wholesale transactions with
clubs or other authorized whole-
salt purchasers.
Among other things, they took
note of that as thinga now stand
government, since he does not
pay the tax. The wholesaler does
that.
One suggestion discussed wat
that the dealers get together
and set up a convenient mutual
retail shop in Panama City just
across the line from Ancon. In
the abstract, they said, the idea
might be practical, but they
could not get together on what
proportion of sales or stock
should accrue to each dealer.
Matters of excise stamps and
a regulation that the tax-free
liquor must be sold within a
limited time are also troubling
the dealers.
Mrs. Prances Longmore, for-
mer president of the United
SUtes Citizens' Association,
spoke at the Congressional hear-
ings shortly before noon today,
following an address by J.
Winter D. Collins, president of
the U.S.C.A. Extracta from the
text of her speech follow:
In proposed legislation now
pending before your subcom-
mittee it Is noted that HR 7305,
HR 7393 and HR 7564 are very
similar. Por reference purposes
I would like to use HR 7305.
Page 5, line 20, now reads:
M...It shall also operate fa-
cilUies net

facilities shall be operated in
a manner to be self-support-
ing. In determining whether
or not a facility is self-sup-
portln, the corporation shall
allow as cost the Items of
overhead, maintenance and
operation, depreciation, inter,
eat on Investment, and a pro-
portionate share of the net
cost of the Canal Zone Gov-
ernment."
I would like to suggest, and
request, the following amend-
ments: (1) Page 5, Line 22, an

"self-supporting," to read: "ex-
cluding those existing to render
service to employes of the Pan-

Opening speaker La Vem R.

Citizens Association, told mem-
bers of the House subcommittee
today that the group was taking
a "new approach."
"usually the mouthpiece
peaks for the client," he said,
but pointed out that the U8CA
had decided they wanted to
have people testify who Uve here
and are personally involved In
the problems. .
Chairman Edward Garmatz
Interrupted the Washington at-

an insertion reading: "Such
additional facilities which exist
for the. purpose of rendering
service to employes of the Pan-
ama Canal Company and Canal
Zone Government shall be oper-
ated in a manner to be as self
supporting as possible, provided
that in the sale of goods or
services to employe of the
Company-Government the cost
thereof to the employe will in
no Instance be higher than the
cost would be in Washington,
D.C., for the same or equivalent
toods or service, with full con-
sideration given to quality of
goods and efficiency of service."
I believe aU of as are aware
of the fact that circumstances
may arise, and In the net too
distant future, which ander
the present wording of the
legislation would or could log-
ically result in the Company's
being forced to Increase costs
to a level far in excess of the
cost of Using in the United
States.
I feel that the availability,
quality and cost of employe
services determines to a great
extent the level of efficiency
of the ent're organisation of
the Company Government
and the services rendered te
the maritime industry.
You are aware that some fac-
ilities are operated by the Ca-
nal exclusively for non-U.8. cit-
izens. We are not at all opposed

tending fully eoual and fair

Booz, Allen and Hamilton sur-
vey, had "dashed the hopes of
the employes." He added that
two years after the Dec. 1953 re-
port "these same employes find
their problems are still unsolv-
ed."
Before introducing the second
speaker. Winter J. Collins. USCA
president. Dilweg outlined what
the organization felt were the
"three major problems."
"1. What is the Company's
present and future policy of re-
placement?
"We contend that the V. S.
employe it entitled to know
now.
"2. Should the Company's con-
tributions to all fringe benefits
be paid from non-reimbursmble
appropriated funds?
"We contend that they
should be paid from appropri-
ated funds because they fall
in the field of extraordinary
expenditures incurred by na-
tional policy.
"3. Should there be ceilings on
the orlce charged for goods and
services?
-We contend that price ceil-
ings on goods and service
should be assured through leg-
islation.
"The president of the United
SUtes Citizens Association is
prepared to present the case for
our Association."

64,000-Dollar
Question Posed
By Mrs. Rennie
What some employes balled
the 64,000 question was asked
today shortly before noon' by
Mrs. Margaret Rennie, an active
Civic Council member who tes-
tified before the House Sub-
Committee here today.
to prefacing her |15-mlnute
testimony, Mrs. Rennie said that
it seemed uppermost In every-
one's mind to have the Panama
Canal Co. and government run
In the most economical manner.
"Why then," she asked, "has
the working force of the Panama
Canal Cd.-government been de-
creased while the administrative
or executive forces increased?"
Tier att an chiefs and
no Indians," she said as the
audience cheered.
She told Chairman Edward A.

art here not to be questioned,
but to receive information, she
merely wanted to ask a question
which would round out the pic-
ture that the committee will get.
Mrs. Rennie, who was sent
to Washington two years ago
by the U8CA, pointed ont It
might be Interestlnr to eon-
aider what the working force
was In 1937 as compared to the
present, and also what the ad-
ministrative branch force was
at that time, and what It is
now.
Garmatz then asked:
*to other words, what you're
saying is that the white collar
force has increased?"
"That's not exactly wjiat I'm
getting at. But consider things
like the Governor's staff,' the
personnel bureau, the account-
ing office, engineering office,
legal staff. Comptroller's office,
and you will see. what I mean,"
she replied.

He mad* his plea before the Congressional subcommittee on the Panam Canal
as the group's hearings swung into their second day.
Other witnesses who testified this morning were USCA legal representativa Lo-
Yern Dilweg, USCA ex-president Mrs. Frances Longmore, and Mrs. Margaret Rennie.
Scheduled to testify this afternoon were PC Pilots Association attorney William
S. Tyson, AFGE's Rufus Lovelady, veterans' representative George Black, and CIO
representatives William Sinclair, Edward A. Gaskin and Jos de la Rosa Castillo.
Collins revealed the USCA has about 1100 members.
Collins opened by briefly des-
cribing the nature of the USCA,
then said he would confine his re-
marks to one piece of legislation
before the committee -U.K. 6817
sponsored by Garmatz.
He said Gov. John S. Seybold
had written an adverse letter oh
the bill, and the USCA wished to
comment on this letter.
Collins took the letter paragraph

Solon Questions
Number Of Zone
Constituents
Spectators tittered this morning
when Rep. John J. Alien (R-Cal )
asked USCA president Winter Col-
lins during the hearings new un-
derway at Balboa Heights how
many U. S. Citizens In the Csnsl,
Zone actuslly exercise their right clien> rnU1 ratM
The proposed legislation ap-
pears to bo promised on the as-
sumption either that It is inequi-
table to charge employes for the
costs specified or that Govern-
ment employes in the C a n al
Zone aro entitled to additional
fringe benefits beyond those al-
ready provided by law.
"The stated objectives of our.
proposed legislation, "Said CoT-
lins," is to relieve Government
employes from specified elements
of cost that are assumed to be
present in the pricing of goods and
service provided to them by the
Panama Canal Company and the
Canal Zone Government We are
not asking that goods snd "services
be furnished free of charge, and
that our employer absorb all such
cost we are willing to pay for
the actual cost of the item or serv-
ice, but strenuously object to be-
ing burdened with charges which
are unfair.
"We do not feel that our (U.S.

Collins explained that some
stales do not have absentee vot-
ing. In others, be aid, time
schedules for those which require
voters to register in the primaries
make it complicated for employee
who uve here to participate.
To which Allen remarked:

tiou with witnesses claiming their
standard of living down here is
lower than that in the States.
Francis E. Doro (R.-N.-.Y.) told
witness Winter Collins, testifying
ss President of the U. S. ati-
zaos' Assn:
"Your standard here is much
higher then people in my own
congressional district, or those to
many pans of the country I hope
tt continued to be. But the ma-
Jarity of my constituents w e u 1 d
be desirous of enjoying this stan-
dard of living you have bow.''
He edded^lfcey'd be happy if
they could live as well as you."
Collins, in defense of the USCA
position, remarked that they ware
comparing their standard of liv-
ing with similar middle class
groups in the seme economic po-
sition as they are.
Dorn countered with:
"I'd say your feeling was incor-
rect."
Committee member William S
Maillard, (R-Cal.) asked for s
clarification of what standards
were being discussed, standard of
living or cost of Jiving
Collins replied that although it ment here must remain

deration only the American stan-
dard of living.
any higher nor any more seif-sup-
Krting than those charged to a-
n employes, who are also pro-
vided housing by our common em-
ployer.
Our own government pro-
vides a housing subsidy to the
Alien Canal employes, while ex-
tracting a profit from the hous-
ing furnished to its own United
Stetes citizen employes. Discrim-
inatory favoritism tor aliens o-
ver its own follow citizens wo
feel was nviw intended by our
national Cong reos.
"We do not feel that costs of
necessary services supplied us
who are here in this foreign area
only because of employment by
our government should be made
to cover the cost of operations or
activities on the part of our local
government in which we have ab-
solutely no voice nor control.
"We are paying 'local taxes'
without their being established oa
a fixed or public basis; and al-
though we may present grievances
or pleas to our local government,
the fact remains we have been
denied the right of true represen-
tation or of final action as do
the taxpayers in local communi-
ties in our own country.
. "There are reasons why it is
necessary that control of govern -
- under our
tation through added charges plac-
ed on their groceries.
"We do not feel that our costs
should cover expenses accruing
to the Canal in the future.as a
result of the recently revised Trea-
ty between our nation and the Re-
public of Panama.
"Some of the provisions of the
new treaty will greatly -increase
the financial burden of the Canal
organization, for example, the
greatly increased annuity to the
Republic of Panama, the building
of a bridge across the Canal.
"Unless the employes of the
Canal are provided with some
legislative protection, they will be
burdened with a abare of the cost
of these items thus being the
only U.S. citizens of our entire na-
tion to bear such costs, when the
concessions granted by our gov-
ernment to Panama in the treaty
were made on behalf.of all U. S,
citizens no matter where they
may be certainly not just for
this isolated group of citizens
who will be the only citizens bear-
ing the cost
"Here we stand, fully backed by
the Booz, Allen and Hamilton re-
port, which was conducted by
Congressional directive, by an im-
partial firm known as expert in
the management-consultant field,
"Collins went On.
"We aro not opposed to pay-
ing for goods and services furn-
ished us (considering quality as
well as availability) but we do
object to being discriminated a-
gainst in favor of aliens; we ob-
ject to being singled out as a
handful of citizens to support
deficit operations of the Canal,
to supporting a local govern-
ment in which we have no
voice: and to contributing to the
recruitment leave, retirement,
etc., programs of Canal employ-
ee as weu as other Federal em-
ploye world-wide, when those
other Federal employes make
no similar contribution to the
Canal employes' pro-ram
Paragraph 3 of the Seybold
letter declared that the canal
Administration did not believe
detailed statutory pricing for-
mulas to be-economically sound
for a business-type enterprise.
Collins contended that to
place such control in the hands

stance, we now bear 'all high
tropical costs.'
"The Governor.states that
the only alternaf v'e to excess-
ive costs is the giving of 'hid*

ly to alien employes," which
is the situation today. What fa
wrong with extension of sub-
sidie when applied equitably?
To Saybold's paragraph 5. con-
tention that undo* the proposed

raised, though in
most Instances there would be
price reductions, Collins said:
"Looks like they are looking for
a loophole.
"They imply that cost* would
rise, but do admit that in moat
instances there would have to
be reductions In prices, which Is
what we are after.
"We wish to pay no more far
our fringe ebnefits than does
any other Federal employe pay
for his."
In paragraph fj, Seybold wrote
that in most instances the Com-
pany rendered all direct coats of
services rendered to employes,
plus a reasonable contribution to'
direct or general expenses.
Collins explained the state-
ment this way:
"In recovering 'all direct costs
of the service (goods also should
be Included here) plus a reason-
able contribution to direct or
general expenses,' this mean*:
The item's basic cost, without
overhead, is about the sama 0*
the Canal as to a Stateside sell-
er.
"The Stateside man adds oft
his overhead and taxes, etc-,
while the Canal adds on freight;
storage, administrative oven
head (which with governmental
agencies requiring additions!
administrative hardens Is al-
ways higher than with private
business), and deficits resulting
from other activities.
'Then, with the delay involv-
ed between the time the item 1

Ime it Is resold to an employe..
If It is at all perishable. It has
deteriorated terrifically. "If it
is canned goods there Is still
spoilage and spoiled canned
canned goods are sold from
time to time, although if return-
ed, the price is refunded.''
Paragraphs 7 and 8 dealt with
certain complications of cost ac-
counting processes.
Paragraph 9 referred to diffi-
culties arising from limiting com-
missary and service center price
cuts only to employes of the Pa>
nama Canal Co. and the Canal
Zone Government.
Section 1 of the proposed bill
adds the cost of retirement lor
Canal employes directly to tolls.

Paragraph 4 of the Seybold
letter said attempts to establish
employe prices on the basis of
predetermined fixed formulas
results either in excessive costs
to employes, or in hidden sub-
sidles.

Globe-girdling Comet Jet Airliner
Is Refused New York Landing Permit
SYDNEY, Australia. Dec.
(UP) A spokesman for the De
Haviland Company said today
Britain's sleek Comet jet airliner
would make its round-the world
flight via Canada because New
Yrk port authorities would nt
let It land there.
The Comet III flashed into Syd-
ney Sunday with a new speed
record from London to Australia.
It received such a mob welcome
that firemen had to drive the
crowd and their lighted ciga-
rets back from the plane with
firehoses. *
De Haviland sales manager
Frank Lloyd told a press con-
ference the plane would proba-
bly land in either Los Angleles
or 8an Francisco and that the
decision would be made when,
the plane reaches Honolulu. Its
route calls for it to land at Van-
couver, Taranto and Montreal
Si the flight t oLondon.
"They are very nervous In -New
York over the public reaction to
the noise snd havent' had any ex-
perience yet with Jets,'' Lloyd
aid.
"The angle of climb is greater
than that of propellered planes
and the Comet noise aboute quals
that of Constellations."
Lloyd prediced trans-Pacific
Jet service by lMe with 24-hour
service between Vancouver and
Sydney and less between San
Francisco and Sydney.
Thousands of spectators swarm-
ed over the Klngsford 8mith air-
port here Sunday waving and
shouting a welcome to the "come-
back" plane.
The Comet had to circle the
field twice while firemen dispers-
ed the mobs with strong streams
of water. ,
Many persons carried 11 g h t e d
cigarettes which airport officials
feared might touch off _jet fuel
dripping from the plane's engines.
The officials said the hoses were
used to clear the path for fire en-
1 The milling crowds^koeed and
threatened the firemen, who
drenched at least four women.
The Comet, redesigned after a
series of disastrous crashes, land-
ed just 43 hours after it left Lon-
don.

presure on Tech to cancel the ap-
pearance by demanding immedi-
te action by the regents.
Tech President Blake R. Van
Leer and Coach Bobby Dood left
it up to the regents, the final au-
thority on operations of Georgia
Tech, the University of Georgia
and smaller units in the universi-
ty system.
After "prayerful consideration,"
the regents decided:
1. No athletic team of a unit of
the university system shall be
permitted to engage In contests
in Georgia with other teams
where the rsces are mixed or
where segregation is not required
among spectators at soch events.
2. Teams in future contests out-
side to sue "shall respect the
laws, custom and traditions of
th" '-ost state.
"No contract or agreement,"
the policy statement continued,
"shill be entered Into for an ath-
letic contest in any state where
the circumstances under which it
is to be fulfilled are repugnant
to the laws, customs and tradi-
tions of the host state."
The Joker for the Intertectlon-
al futures of Tech and Georgia
came In that paragraph. P re-
sumsbly teams from Geor g I a
could play in the North, East or
West against teams with Negro
players without raising their
own state governments ire.
But those 8a me teams could not
complete home and home con-
tracts with Georgia and Tech
without compromising their own
principles. In most non-South
areas Negroes now go out for
college teams on the same basis
as whites, and Pittsburgh has de-
clined to deny Grier his chance
in the Sugar Bowl.
Tech and Georgia have between
them gone to M bowl games in
the last 15 years. This will be
Tech's fifth straight but it c on-
ceivablv could be its last, under
broad interpretation of the new
rule.
pattern of keeping segregation.''
Regent Quimby Melt on Jr.,
Griffin, Ga., editor, said the new
policy means "when in Rome, do
as the Romans do."
Another member, Charles Bloch
of Macon, called it a ''safety
measure" that would "prevent
riots'' that might result II a
white boy injuret* a Negro boy in
a game, or vice versa.

"What's going on here?"' asked
East at a certain stage ol the piay
in touay'i hand. He knew that
sometning peculiar was Happening,
but he somehow failed to work out
the obvious answer.
West opened the singleton jack
of clubs, and South won with the
ace. South -slyly led the jack of
spades, as though for a finesse,
but West stepped right up with the
ace of spades and returned the
queen of hearts.
Si uth quickly played the ten of
hearts from dummy instead of
putting up the king, and this was
when East wondered out loud what
was going on.
The answer should have been
perfectly clear. South couldn't af-
ford to let East get the lead for
then a club return would give West
a ruffing trick.
East should have overtaken with
the ace of hearts even though'
dummy's king had not eben play-
ed. A club return and the ace of
diamonds ould then have defeat-
ed the contract.
Instead, sad to relate, East fell
into the trap. He played a low
heart, and the defense collapsed
with this play.
South ruffed the next heart and
drew trumps. He then cheerfully
conceded the ace of diamonds,
making hia game contract.
If East had saved his breath and
put the energy into more brain-
work, he might have come up with
the right answer.

Hanukah Observance
Begins On Friday
Hanukah; also known as the
Feast of Lights, which will oe
celebrated by Jews throughout
the world from sundown, Friday
Dec. 9 to sundown, Saturday,
Dec. 17, commemorates the suc-
cessful struggle for religious 11
berty carried on by a small band
of Israelites, led by the Maca
bees, against the vast army of
their Syrian oppressors, under
King Antlochus, which culmi-
nated in the recapture of Jeru-
salem and the rededlcation of
the Holy Temple (105 B.C.E.).
The celebration of Hanukah in
the Hebrew calendar begins on
the 25th day of Klslev (sundown,
Friday), the day on which the
temple was consecrated anew to
the service of Ood, and lasts for
eight days, because the cere-
mony of rededlcation and festi-
vities continued for that length
of time.
Services for the Feast of
Lights will begin Friday at 7:80
p.m., and will continue each ev-
ening of the holiday. Rabbi
Nathan Witkln, director of the
USO-JWB Armed Forces Service
Center, and Auxiliary Chaplain,

Since its arrival on the Isth-

tion has become one of growing
interest daily. Specula 11 o n a
reached new heights late Satur-
day, for the car had been re-
ported missing from its place of
honor in the Colpan showrooms.
Whan contacted late Saturday,
Mr. Heraclio Guardia, General
Manager for the company, did
not deny that a sale is under
discussion but hastened to add
that the Continental had been
taken to Colon Saturday, to give
the Atlantic aiders a one day
view of this car of the decade
This car, the top of the Ford
Motor Co. line, was presented in
Colon by d. Abbott, of the Col-
pan Motors, who stated that all
who have seen the Mark II are
enthusiastic in praise of its ele-
gant simplicity of design, accom-
plished in a distinctive and ex-
citing way.
Bach Continental, unlike any
other car, is individually tested
by its own engineer before lt can
leave the production plant. For
many reasons, all those who ap-
preciate fine motor cars are fol-
lowing the future of the Con-
tinental with great interest. Ac-
tually, the presentation of this

Education Delegates
Vote M For Aid
From Federal Govt.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 6 (UP>
A top government education of-
ficial insiste today that any fed-
eral aid to schools must be in
the form of construction grants
and not for operation or teach-
ers' salaries.
Dr. Herald C. Hunt, undersec-
retary of health, education and
welfare, said this would preclude
the possibility of federal control
of education.
"I think we all are against
control at the federal level,"
Hunt said.
Martha Shull, an Oregon teach-
er and vice president of the Na-
tional Education Assn. said fed-
eral construction grants would
help communities meet salary
land maintenance costa by re-
leasing more local funds for such
purposes.
Hunt', Miss Shull and Clinton
Pace discussed the reults of last
week's White House conference
on education on the CBS radio
program, "The Leading Ques-
tion." Pace was director of the
conference, Miss Shull was a
delegate.
The 1.800 delegates voted more
than two-to-one lh favor of fed
eral aid to education. Education
Secretary Marion B. F o 1 s o m
promptly predicted the admin-
istration would send to Congress
a new "broadened and Improved"
program.
Pace said "the teacher short-
age Is not an isolated thing unto
itself. It Is part of an over-all
shortage of trained people." He
said, "you are automatically de-
veloping more scientists, more
engineers, more this, that, and
the other."

Plummer fractured a linger
during a workout last week and
was ordered by doctors to call
off his engagement in the sched-
uled ten-rounder.
The coming Tesis-Martines
scrap brings back memories of
past spectacular battles be-
tween the two. .
The two Colonites have met
twice before. They fought for
the first time soon after plum-
mer relinquished the Isthmian
126-pound title with Tesis win-
ning a clear cut victory.
In their return match several
months later, Tesis gained a dis-
puted split decision that
brought a wave of protest from
a large part of the crowded
Arena. That bout was action-
packed from start to finish.

the division was Wilfred o

foucht against Plummer.
Tesis was a recent winner by

He did It, according to Tatum,
by presreving the Terps' spotless

UCLA, the defending na-

It will be Bg Bill Hockenbory
on the mound for the Carta Vie-
Ja Yankees against Jim Tuger-
son of the Spur Cola Sodamen
tonight at the Olymp'c Stadium
when the Pro League wars are
resumed after a two-day respite.
Both pitchers are righthand-
ers. Hockenbury is a veteran of
the Carta Vieja club. Probably
the most versatile member of Al
Kubskl's team, Hock has been
used regularly as a starting
pitcher, has done a lot of bulN
pen work, and is also a good fill-
in st Infield and outfield posi-
tions.
Tugerson, a lithe looking
flinger from Dallas, Class AA
Texas League, Is a .newcomet
to the loop. He had a 9-12 rec-
cord with Dallas last season.
Carta Vieja has been unable
to win a game in two tries since
the season began Thursday. The
Yankees took a 5 to 1 drubbing
from the Chesterfield Smokers
Iri the opener and they suffered
their second straight loss Satur-
day night when the Spur Cola
Sodamen came ."om behind to
defeat them 9 to 8.
Kubski, outwardly at least,
has not been too discouraged a-
bout his club's bad start. He
has expressed that the season Is
still young and that his ooys
should Improve in condition as
time goes on, but as optimistic
as he may be, if Carta Vieja los-
es again tonight he will proba-
bly be wondering, "until when.'
Another loss for the Yan-
kees would place them two
and one-half games behind tbe
Sodamen and two games away
from tbe Smokers. A Spur Co-
la win would give them tbe
loop lead.
A confident Sodamen team
wHl take the field tonight. Aft-
er trailing the Yanks 8 to 3 In
the sixth innln* Saturday, they
showed never-sav-die spirit by
coming un with five runs in the
bottom of the seventh to go a-
hesd 8 to 6. They picked up an-
other Insurance tally in the
eighth.
In winning they showed rood
Dower as they pounded out 13
hits, five of them going for ex-
tra bases.
Game time is 7:30.

Ford Frick Advises
Against Baseball's
Radio, TV Test Case
NEW YORK. Dec. 6 iUP>
Baseball men have been talking
about going to court to test
whether they can restrict radio
and television broadcasers. To-
day, Commissioner Ford Frick
told them to forget .bout It for
now.
The Commissioner says base-
ball "cannot afford a test case
in court at this time." He says
a case was ready, but Washing-
ton advised against it. The Com-
missioner says the danger In-
volves small individual suits by
stations which want to carry

might be 50 or more such suits,"
he says "Eventually, we might
win them all. but we would go
broke in court costs."
The minor leagues say they

(Repr'nted from
Ihe Miami Herald)
A second possibility for switch-
ing the Syracuse International
League franchise to Miami arose
last night.
With Sidney Salomon due here
this afternoon to discuss the lo-
cal baseball situation, a report
from Chicago quoted Frank
Shaughnessy, IL president, as
saying he intended to talk to
Philadelphia Phillies officials a-
bout purchasing the Syracuse
club.
Shaughnessy said, "I defi-
nitely think we will be able to
operate a franchise In Miami
next season. Syracuse just
isn't ready to operate.
"The only reason they have
been able to keep going" he
went on. "is because the Phllltes
gave them a few ball players.
But it isn't to the advantage of
the Phillies to operate there a-
gain next season."
Shaughnessy said he Intend-
ed to see Roy Hamey, Phils' gen-
eral manager, about making the
switch to Miami next week. He
said he would approach the
Phils at that time about the pos-
sibility of their purchasing the
Syracuse club from present own-
tr Martin Haske.
"If we can move in to Miami
we will have the best set up In
our history," Shaughnessy said.
In the meantime Salomon,
former owner of the St. Louis
Browns who has expressed a se-
rious interest In buying the Sy-
racuse club and moving It to
Miami, was delayed in his flight
here.
Salomon's first step when he
arrives Ui's afternoon will be
te confer with city officials
about Miami Stadium. Salo-
mon will later talk to Haske
who Is supposed to let him
know tonight if he will give
h'm a two-week option to bay
the Syracuse club.
Joe Ryan, who returned to
Miami from the minor league
meetings In Columbus Sunday,
expressed confidence that Salo-
mon can buy the Syracuse club
and move It to Miami ''If ht
wants it."
According to Ryan, the Inter-
national League would take "a
pretty dim view" to the purchase
of the club by either a Toledo
group or another faction from
Syracuse. (Ryan's views were
borne out later by Shaughnes-
sy).
Ryan recalled that a group
from Philadelphia tried to buy *
the Athlet'cs after Arnold
Johnson had purchased that
franchise for Kansas City.
"It is the same kind of a 9
deal." Ryan said, "if Salomon
wants the Syracuse team, I am
quite sure he and Haske will get
together on terms."
Intramural Basketball
Going Into the last week of
play, the championship of either
BHS league is still at stake. The
Bullets lead the "C" League with
a 5 won l loss record, and the
Chiefs are second with a 4 won
1 lost total. In the "B" League
there is a tie for first between
the Warriors and the Celtics,
each team showing a 5 won 1
lost record.
The week's Individual high
single game total In the "C"
League was posted by Butsv
Rathgeber hitting for 28 points.
Raul Barbara dumped in 33
points to duplicate this In the
"B" League.

Unable to obtain any satisfac-

Owner Frank D. Lawrence of the

Commissioner Ford C. Frick
talks about the majors being

the majors are being harassed by
the Department of Justice.
"We are being sued for not do-

(Joe Wiillama la III Daniel is subbing.)
All the legal mumbo jumbo
makes what J. Norman Lewis
has to My on the entire mat
ter seem rather astonishing.
"In my opinion," said Lewi.,
attorney for the Major League
Baseball P 1 a y e r s' Association,
"the anti-trust laws are not ap-
plicable to the decision of a base-
oall owner to televise or broad-
cast his games."
It is unnecessary for Lewis, an
authority, on baseball law, to
Sun out that the area where
ht takes piace more often than
not is blacked out. There is no
telecast at home when a profes-
sional football team is playing In
its own park. So can the base-
ball owner TV or not TV. -
"Then in your opinion the
baseball troubles are imaginary,"
the interviewer remarked to
Lewie.
"That's what it amounts to," he
replied. "Certainly, there is no
reason for baseball to look for
help in Washington."
Lewis has become well ac-
quainted with major league own-
en since becoming the mouth-
piece of the hired hands. He as-
sures you that they intend to
lend the folding minors a hand.
"They'll do this under the
leadership of Walter O'Malley of
the Brooklyn club," he explained.
"The big men of baseball
men like O'Malley, Philip K. Wrig-
ley, Tom Yawkey. John W. Gal-
breath and rowel Crosiey, Jr.
fully realize the importance of the
minors, want no injustice done.
"The minors can be assisted in
two wsys. The broadcasting and
telecasting of big league games
can be curtailed or kept out of
their territory. They can be sub-
sidized. I'm sure the major
league owners will choose the lat-
ter way."
Walter O'Malley has game-
of-the-week television plan which
would net 'every minor league club
more than enough to keep it in
business. It is reported that this
plan would give Triple A and open
Classification clubs $85,000 a year
with the scale running down to
$8,000 for Class D operatives.
"And baseball won't have to go
to court," reiterated J. Norman
Lewis.
"All It haa to do ia adjust its
economic structure to keep up
with the times."
Sound leadership would have
done this seversl years ago and
avoided a lot of acrimony and
headachea.

"A 'small' college quarterback

It waa written.
The boya wen wrong on three
counts.
(1) Every clcae follower of foot-
ball, especially the profeaaional
scouts, knew all about the 25-year-
old six foot one inch, 195 pound
Gllck.
(2) Colorado A. and M. ia .

10 of its opponents. Football-wise,
you aee, the schedule makes a
school "major" or "small.''
(3) The versatile Glick is con-
siderably more than a quarter-
back, which he will not play .. a
Steeler.
Waiter Klealing of the Pitta-
burgh club quickly gobbled up
Gllck because he waa afraid
Mmeone else would grab him.
Among other things, the young
mana military Mrvice is behind
him. for he spent four years ia
theNavy starring at the San
Diegp Training Station before
matriculating at Fort Collins.
A collegian plucked by (he por
club with the fint crack doesn't
necessarily have to be the
finest player in the rank., al-
though Coach Kiesling Insists that
Gllck meets all those require-
ments.
More often than not, the bonus
pick is the answer to what the
clun requires at the moment.

Interceptions last Maaon. He'll
play halfback, but is a skillful
enough ball-handler and passer
to spot the quarterback. This fall,
he switched between left halfback
and quarter. The Steelers suffered
for th lack of a place-kicker, hav
one how.
This soturna, beau, pick Geor-
Se Shaw helped put the Colt, in
usiness. In 1(54, the Browns took
Bobby Garrett, now in the armed
forces, from Stanford for trading
purposes. Hsrry Bsbcock's choice
in '53 waa as surprising as that
of Glick, but the 48era wanted an
offensive end. They sot one, but
this trip the Georgia lad has been
kept out by a prt-iesstm injury.

dom has it been heightened o
deftly a by Patrick Hamilton,
anthor of the play "Rope" which
ta&t night received the most
losing first-night acclaim of
any Piay P* on by the Theater
Ouild. w .
'"Rope" owes Its basic idea but
no much else to the Leopold-
j^oeb thrill killing ot the 1920s.
Hamilton transferred the cene
to London, transformed the klll-
and the Chicago detective force
into a poet. This last is quite a
trick.
In the role of poet Rupert Ca-
dcil, A. J. Carothers last night
Inscribed some exciting new dac-
tyls in Theatre Guild history.
This Texan OI, given perforce
ft* apostrophizing hi maiaket

cent to become a perfect courier
for some of the most intelligent-
ly-written passage lately heard
cm a Canal Zone stage.
At the one time foppish yet
needle-sharp, he give thrill-
killer Windham Brandon (John
Mayles) what might be called
'.tie intellectual battle of his Ufe.
Mayles matches Carothers'
smooth excellence every inch of
the steps which In total comprise
his desjentration from self-pos-
seased, vain young man to a
craven loser In the shadow of

manner and who each fell a'per-
sonal responsibility to make and
keep Canal operations at an Out-
standing level of efficiency which
was recognized and acknowledg-
ed by shipping circles the world
over, and as they were led to be-
lieve as a profitable enterprise
for the United States Government
and taxpayers.
"Tho advantage of tax free
Income was taken from tho
employe* by Congressional ac-
tion, and in effect constituted an
actual out-of-pocket cut in pay
to each and every employe at
a timo when wages and salaries
i n the Continental United States
were being increased by all sec-
tions of industry," Wagner con-
tinued.
"In 1950 Congress enacted Pub-
lic Law 841 whose interpretation
by the Company and recommend-
ations from the General Account-
ing Office has affected every
fihase of our welfare, working,
Iving, and recreational condi-
tions.
"These changes were, more or
less, all to the disadvantage of
the employes through increased
living costs, curtailment of many
outlets for recreation and other
employe services, snd partial e-
limmation of stable working con-
ditions and job security.
Application and interpretation of
Public Law 841 by the General
Accounting Office said In effect
that formerly the Canal had been
operated at a loss to the United
States Government and taxpayers
instaead of at a profit as the
employes had been led to believe
by former Administrations, and
we are now in the position of be-
ing penalized and paying a sub-
stantial portion of these losses."
Wagner went into events lead-
ing up to the Booz, Allen and
Hamilton survey, then listed the
survey's five recommenations:
1. Retention of the 25 per cent
ddfferential.
2. Make the differential tax-free.
3. Effect a rent reduction of 50
per cent.

ny, Wagner introduced to the 5. Retain the present status of
committee six union officials who,
he said, were available to an-
swer committee Questions on
problems with which they were
more familiar than Wagner.
They were:
R. L. Blaney The Union's
First vice-president who has been
employed for nine years with the
Accounting Division and has been
with the Terminal Division for
the past 18 years.
L. S. Damiani The U n 1 o n's offsetting benefits compared
second vice-president who has Stateside conditions,
been employed by the Commissa-
ry Division for 13 years.
Curtis Coate Wage Board
member employed by the Elec-
trical Dvision for two years and
employed by the Locks Division
for the last three years.
Howard E. MunroLegislative
representative who has been em-
eoyed by the Electrical Dvision
r IS years.
J. R. Rice Alternate legisla-1
tlve representative, employed? by
other fringe benefits.
He analyzed the extent to which
these recommendations have sub-
sequently been carried out. He
further recalled the Panama Ca-
nal board of directors' letter of
transmit tal which went with thejiary levis so as to place the Ca-
State
homes in the Zone, and there are
no other facilities available within
the Zone. v
"In a decision handed down by
the Judge of the United States
District Court the employes oc-
cupying Government Housing
were referred to as 'Cpative Ten-
ants.'
"The Booz, Allen and Hamilton
report recommended the em-
ployes' rent be reduced 50 per
cent.
"The board of directors approv-
ed the 50 por cent reduction In
principle but as of this date
have oniy put in e reduction of
7 per cent effective Jan. 1, lfS5
and reduced that to 3 por cent
effective July 1, IMS.
Wagner was in favor of the De-
partment of Commerce taking o-
ver the Panama Casal.
"At present the President of the
United States hss designated the
Secretory of the Army as the
stockholder. He uses the Depart
ment of the Army staff as requir-
ed and it is hard to determine if
the Department of the Army is op-
erating the Panama' Canal Com-
pany or not"
"He said.
"It is felt that placing tho Pa-
name Canal Company under the
Department of Commerce would
bo a stop in the right direction
in placing a commercial enter-
prise under civilian control
rather than be subjected to mil-
itary control."
He also favored a formula spell-
ing out the ratio to. be used m pro-
rating cots of operating,.maintain-
ing roads, highways, sewers and
otner men facilities and services
used by joint military personnel
and their families and Canal Com-
pany Government civilian em-
ployes.
"it does not appear that the ra-
tio as spelled out is equitable, as
oniy military personnel located in
the Canal Zone are included for
the military's proportion, while on
the other side there are not only
the United Sutes citizens but cit-
izens of the Republic of Panama
employed by the Company Gov-
ernment included," Wagner said,
"in order to equalize this ratio,
the civilian employes of the mil-
itary should also oe included m
their proportion.
Regaramg the proposal, repeat-
ed In testimony yesterday by Ro-
bert E. Mayer, president of the
Pacific Steam ship Association,
that ceiling pnces oe established
for goods ana services supplied to

said:

elicited only limited comment
from GolUns.
In paragraph 18, Seybold re-
ferred to the ambiguity of the
term "fringe benefit."
Collins observed:
"If they wish to pell out in
detail what the fringe benefits
are. It 1 all right with us. They
are correct tn assuming this
means travel benefits, recruit-
ment, home leave, repatriation,
vacation time, group life Insur-
ance alo retirement annui-
ties, workmen's compensation,
health insurance, social security.
Since they bring up the
question ef differential, that
also should be includedwhile
It is net legally reoutred' It
is 'legallv provided ler,' al-
though the term is permsss:ve.
bat the fact remainshow
many other federal employee,
other than through their in-
come tax payments, share in
the cost of their own differen-
tial?
The Governor's reference, In
paragraph 19 to comparing
fringe benefits paid employes in
other government agencies, was
described by Collins as "the
crux of the matter."
He went on:
"We have been discarded, so
to speak, as federal employes,
and fully burdened as outsider
with the support of activities
as well as the cost of our due
rights extended to us as em-
ployeswhUe at the time the
federal government provides
such benefits to other federal
employes as Tildden benefits' or
ubsidles; and private business
firms all through our country
offer similar benefits to their
employes.
"We are further discarded
by our own government by ear-
being singled out from among
the Canal employee; we who
are citizens are burdened to
a much greater extent than
are oar fellow alien employes;
all working for a common em-
ployer al] renting housing,
for Instance, from the same
landlord.
"We, the citizens, must pay a on on the part of their em-
ployer, then it is not fair
us to be classified a such.
for
rental rate sufficiently high to
cover all costs; but it is not
'deemed practicable' to require
the aliens to pay rental rates
sufficient to cover all costs of
their housing.
"It does Indeed confuse the is-
sue of our position as govern-
ment employes as such, and our
position as consumers. Are we
federal employes entitled to our
benefits the same as other fed-
eral employes without contribut-
ing more to their cost than do
those other employes, or are we
total outsiders as far as our
government is.concerned?
"Business firms operating In
overseas areas, as well as 'n
the States, provide services for
their own employes without
recovering the cost thereof
from those employes. Our fed-
eral government even in In-
stance contributes to their
eosta with us down here
contributing to that expense.
"But again, It fc st'll a one-
way road. They do not contrib-
ute to the expense of our ben-
efits, nor to their own but
we are doubly burdened.
"We contend that If other em-
ployes, whether federal or of
{irivate Industry, are exemnted ployes, be introduced as part of
rom the 'consumer' classlfica-' his testimony.
Booklet Included
In Testimony
(H USCA Prexy

Living in the Canal Zone" waa

lins, president of the U. 8. Citi-
zens' Association as part of his

the Zone, aimed at attracting
nwe employes from the U. S.
