Peter Beasley, former special consultant to the

Beasley's new appointment was confirmed today by
unimpeachable sources.
Equally unimpeachobly confirmed was the disfavor
in which representatives of US-rate Canal Zone organ-

Military Cuts
Should Be
OfferedPlainly
BY BRUCE BIOSSAT
Tfa full, ruundad picture of Piras.
ident Eisenhower's prospective dc
fense spending program has not
yet unofficially reported, and they
form a basis for some preliminary
judg menta.
Evidently the President intend*
to slash the defense budget for fis-
cal 1955starting next July--by
perhaps $4 billion. In addition there
will be cuts in related foreign aid
programs. Further reductions are
planned for the two following
years.
These cuts will have to be ac-
complished despite increased oat- '
lays for the Air Force and oar
domestic atomic defense. That
means that the heavy bardea of
reduction will fall BDOB the Ar
my ana! Navy.
Some savings undoubtedly will be
possible through elimination of un-
necessary jobs and other mana-
gerial efficiencies. But the milita-
ry experts realise such economies
will not be sufficient to achieve the
administration's objeti/e.
CONSEQUENTLY, plans report-
edly will call for an 18 per cent
reduction this coming year ia the
Army's uniformed manpower. And
the p-ojected slash in naval funds
may force the Navy to decommis-
sion about 10 per cent of the active
fleet.
The Army is said to feel that It
i cannot absorb this cut without tak-
ing two of its 20 divisions out of
service.
Impartial military observe ar-
gue, with apparent goad reason,
that cuts deep enough to compel
def:nse for less money," ar eve
equal defense. The Eisenhower
administration seems plainly to
be planning less defense.
That does not mean, however,
that the proposed cuts cannot be
defended at _1L
Out of the discussions among the
Joint Chiefs of Staff, key adminis-
tration defense and fiscal officials
and the President himself has
emerged the evident conviction
.that the country can do with less
defense in the years immediaetly
ahead.
THIS conviction reflects a grow-

S WASHINGTON-President Eisen

people during the next session of
Congress, similar to PDA's famous
"fireside chats."

"In my opinion, you ought to go
on tbe air at regular intervals dur-
ing the next session, first telling
the people whst your program is
all about and later telling mem
what has been accompUfned by
Congress," suggested Teilefson.
"I have something like that in
mind," replied Ike. "As you know,
l made one talk on Christ-
as Eve and plan to make another
on January 4. in addition to my
State of tbe Union message. Later
on in the session, I have every in
tention of telling the peona what
our party has done."
One of thh President's visitors
was GOP Congressman elect G.P.
Lipscomb, who won out ia a spe-
cial election In Los Angeles. The
President got k big laugh when
GOP Congressman Hugh Scott of
Philadelphia remarked to Ijps-
comb, as the latter was being in
trpduced to.Ike:
"After pur unhappy experiences
in the Wisconsin and New Jersey
elections, you certainly spared us
old-timers a let of gray hairs, not
to mdntioo jangled nerves, by win
ning that battle in California."
INSIDE WHITE HOUSE
It didn't leak out of tbe. recent
White House conferences, but one
important agreement was to bal-
ance next year's "cash budget."
This will provide a good GOP

The "cash budget" is the dol

Tbe "cash budget,'' for example,
includes income from trust fluids

TV4 Repo/fs fi/g Sfr/c/es
/n Seven States It Serves
WASHINGTON, Dec. 31 (UP)
The Tennessee Valley Authori-
ty reported today the seven
Southern states It serves have
made tremendous Industrial
strides since the federal power
project was established Id 1933.
TVA said In Its annual report
for the fiscal year ended last
June 30 that residents of the
seven states paid 3.4 per cent of
the nation's Income tax In 1933
and 6.2 per cent In 1952.
The report was submitted tc
President Elsenhower and Con-
gress and covered the wide
range of the agency's activities
in Kentucky, Virginia Termes
see, Nort;? Carolina, Mississippi,
Alabama and Georgia. It was
signed by TWA Chairman Gor-
don R. Clapp and Harry A. Cur-
tis and Raymond R. Paty, direc-
tors.
The report said industrializa-
tion has been "somewhat more
rapid in the Tennessee Valley
than in the rest of about 1,00
industrial plants In the TVA a-
rea since 1929 and the number
of jobs m the seven-state area
between 1929 and 1950 Increased
by 72 per cent. This compared
with a national average of 41
per cent
'The wr capita Income of the
region, which was 44 per cent of
the national average in 1929, was
61 per cent in 1052," the report
said.
The report said the TVA pow-
er system is "self supporting and
self-liquidating." It estimated
total investment at the end of
fiscal 1963 at 3803,500,000, with
net revenue during the year at
$19,300,000
Because of severe droughts,
the report said, the net operat-
ing income represented a return
of only 2,7 per cent on the In-
vestment But it noted that the
return during the past 20 years
has averaged more than 4 per
cent, and has run as high as 5.8
per cent.
During the year, it said, TVA
paid about 10 million dollars in -
to the U.S. Treasury and retired
5 million dollars in bonds. It said
TVA is ahead of schedule on re-
payments.
TVA reported that during the
year it added 1,146,000 kilowatts
of power to its system, bringing
the total to 5,100,000. It outlined
new installations planned for
the current fiscal year and said
the agency will have a generat-
ing capacity of ,400,000 kilo-
watts when they are completed.
"But," TVA warned, "this a-
mount of power, although tre-
mendous will not be sufficient
to meet the requirements fore-
cast for 1956amounting to more
than 9Vt million kilowattsand
for subsequent years."
It also said that "in no other
region of the country is as great
a proportion of the total power
supply being devoted to the na-
tional dtfense."
in fiscal 1953, TVA reported. It
distributed about 27 billion kilo-
watt hours of electricity to in-
dustries, farms, homes, commu-
nities and Atomic Energy Com-
mission plants in the area.
It said average home use in
the seven-state area was 4,300
kilowatt hours, nearly double the
national average. Home bills la
the area averaged $56 a year, it
said, compared with a national
average of $02.
"These results have been ac-
companied and achieved by
methods calling for less federal
control and more state and local
responsibility" the report assert-
ed.

could thus rely on even a very
small advantage to win for you in
5 the long run. But "hen you play
. very seldom you might just as
well wait until the odds are heavi-
! ly in your favor before you maae
* a really big bet.
! Incidentally, Red Dog is a game
! that should be played only with
< friends and for very small stakes
[ or for no stakes at all.
I played for stakes, the pool should
i be limited. When the pool gets
, bigger than the limit, divide half
of it among the players. Of course
I if there are no stake* you need
! no limit, since anybody can affod

gjgli MAKE fRIENC
You doii't hava to tell sorne-
one what you paid for some-
thing, even though the person is
rude enough to ask. Just put
your questioner off.with some-
thing like an airy "Too much"
or a vague "I'd have to look up
the bill.' Don't worry If you give
the impression that It's none of
the other person's business.
That is precisely what it is
Bone of hi* business.
that East bad the singleton or dou-
bleton ace of spades.
East won the first round of
trumps with the ten and returned
a low heart. Declarer ruffed in
dummy and -ed a low trump
from the dummy. This had the ex-
pected effect of knocking out
East's ace.
East shifted to the jack of dia-
monds, forcing dummy to win with
the queen. Declarer drew West's
last trump with the king of spades
and then considered the best way
of tackling the clubs. After some
thought, he led a low club from
the dummy.
I Once again there was a good
rr.. on. East was assumed to have
ten red cards and had proven to
have only two spades. There was
room for only one club in East's
hand. With a 3-1 club break one
trick had to be lost in the salt,
and the device of losing the first
trick gave South the best way to
keep control of the hand.
East won with the jack of clubs,
cashed the fourth defensive trick
by taking the ace of diamonds,
and then led a low diamond. South
ruffed dummy's good king of dia-
monds in order to lead a club
fr,m his own hand. This enabled
him to finesse the queen of clubs
and then win the rest of the tricks
with dummy's clubs.

Economist Blames New England's
Economic Decline On Government
WASHINGTON, Dec. SI (UP)
Seymour E. Harris, Harvard eco-
nomics professor, said today gov-
ernment-aided industrialization of
the South has increased New Eng-
ine's difficulties competition.
Labor and management, he said,
must share the blame for New
England's economic decline be
causa capital is not interested in
depressed areas for investment
ossibilities. He also said unions
en wages high in older industrial
iexd sections.
Harris spoke to the American
Economic Assn. amid a growing
controversy over an administration
plan to channel defense contracts
to areas with unemployment
The policy, issued by Defense
Mobilizer Arthur S. Flemming and
warmly endorsed by President Ei-
senhower, may meet stiff criticism
frorr Southern members of Cen-
Sess next month. Sens. Burnet R.
aybank (DSC.) and Walter F.
George (D-Ga.) already have spok
en out against it.
S.n. Leverett Saltonstall (r-
Mass.), whose state has been hit
hard by unemployment, said the
plan would be "helpful" but does
not go far enough.
President Anthony Valente of the
AFL United Textile Workers Union
raid the new policy, expected to
be put into effect in about two
months by the Defense Depart-
ment, can help distressed areas if
Eisenhower's subordinates abide
by ft.
He cited a previous policy to

permit distressed mills to match
the low bid on a defense contract
that was in effect for more than
a year but said "purchasing au-
thorities" paid "little or no atten-
tion to it."
Harris said the government has
drawn money from older developed
regions like New England to bu'ld
up the competitive positions of
newer industrial areas like the
South and Northwest. He men-
tioned specifically power proiecti,
special tax favors, and tariff and
farm pricing policies.
Those policies, he said, "greatly"
increased the economic adjustment
problems of New England. He said
older regions must meet the new
wages, increasing productivity and
finding new lines of business ac-
tivity.
"Ina dynamic economy," Harris
said, "some regions are bound to
grov more rapidly than others and
capture some industries of the old-
er regions."

FARM SYSTEM GETS
FIVE SPONSORS
Plans for the formation of a!
Little League Farm System re-
ceived a big boost as two com-]
mercial firms, two insurance,
companies and one fraternal or-1
^anlzption came forth in finan-'
cial supDort of the League. The
Farm System will be composed
of six teams and will afford over
100 boys the opporunlty to play
baseball under Little League
rules and regulations. Interested
persons are looking "for a sixth
sponsor and are hopeful that
one will be forthcoming within
the next few days.
To date the following four
firms and one fraternal organ-
ization have agreed to back a
team In the League. The Mutual
Benefit Health and Accident Ai-
soclation of Omaha, Nebraska
will sponsor an entry under the
team nome.of "Mutual of Oma-
ha": the Army and Navy Store
of Panama City will sponsor a
team to be known aa the
"Kiwis": the Levonel Company
of Panama City will sponsor the
"Liiesavera" team; the Gibraltar
Life Insurance Company will
sponsor a team under the name
of "Gibraltar Juniors" and the
Hamadam Grotto of Balboa, will
sponsor one tf the other two
teams.
The six teams will be made up
boys 8 to 12 years of age who
recently registered for the Pa-,1
clfic Little League tryouta and
who were not fortunate enough
to make the teams In the Pacif-
ic Little League. Selections of
players for the teams will be
made on Jan. 9 at the Pacific
Little League Ball Park on Gall-
lard Highway at 8:30 am. All
Dlayerg interested are requested
to report at the ball park on
time. Further details re the Farm!
System will appear In the sports!
section of the local newspapers.

The furore of commercialism di-
rected at post-season football
contests surprisingly has by-
oassed the most commercial one
of them allthe fifth annual
Senior Bowl game, slated here
Jan. 9
Maybe because this one leaves
evrybody happy. Mobile gets to
see the finest college football
players in the country. Promot-
ers get to donate money for
non-profit civic organizations
and the prayersah. they get to
make some money for the first
time In their careers.
If you suspect that this Is Just
a pick-up game between a bunch
of rah-rah boys lolling In the
southern sun, mull this Incen-
tivewinning or losing hits each
individual player in a vulnerable
spot, the thin folds of his wal-
let.

The winning squad. North or
or South, collects $500 apiece,
the losers $100 less. It represents
a nice New Year's bonus for a
kid scraping his way through
four years on books, board and
tuition and whatever expense
money he could scrounge up
dousing the dormitory lights at
night.
Last month we congratulated
one North team member for
having been selected to the East-
West Shrine game.
"Thanks," he aald. "But tell
me, do you think I'll make the
Senior Bowl?"
The game is the ultimate In
prep schools for the college star
who has his eyes on pro ball.
Paul Brown of the Cleveland
Browns has handled the North
team all four years. Steve Owen,
late of the New York Giants, tu-
tors the South. The pro draft is
held the end of January, and
the stands will abound with rep-
resentatives of every team in
the National Football League.

have come such Illustrious pro-
fessionals aa Doak Walker. Ed-
die LeBaron, Babe Parilli, Char-

pie talent la better than ever
this year because the game has
caught on.
Players have vied.for the op-
portunity to play. Its stability
is best Illustrated by the fact
that Red Grange has been the
Senior Bowl's promotional di-
rector for five years.

Gathered en tbi South team
are All-Americas Ed Meadows of
Duke, Ray correll of Kentucky.
Crawford Mims of Mississippi, J.
D. Roberts of Oklahoma, not to
mention the publicized Zeki

The North has corralled Dor

of Ohio State. Brj1-. Morgan ol
Maryland, Tom A ,an of Weal
Virginia, Gene Fillpskl of Vtll-

To get the finest players, ,the
game was moved back not to
conflict with the New Year's Day
bowls and to draw upon theli
great personnel.
It makes for a nice bumping of
heads. __________. .

O'Connell Was All Bucs Had To Sell So Rickey Took $100,000 And Players
[Owners Declare Bank Holiday
As Pirates Lose $1,600,000
By HARRY GRAYSON
MIA Sport Editor
NEW YORK(MEA)Daniel Francis O'Connell's sale to the
Bravas is turiher indication that John W. Galbreath and the
other immensely rich men who own the Piratas have declared
Hank holiday In Pittsburgh.
It was more of a sale than a
I trade, for the Piratea are said to
[have bean >ln need of cash. As
liar back as the .World Series,
[you heard that Danny O'Con-
tnell, not yet 35, was on the mar-
ket. Inflelder O'Connell was all
Branch Rickey had to peddle
Ito Milwaukee so he took the
I $100.000 and a hair dozen play-
ers.
Budsville got rid of consider-,
able dead wood which Is to be]
{replaced by younger and the!
Srasa hopes more formidable j
and*. t-
The question now arises as.. __.,,- .!
Br*eb Rkker how well O'Connell will play sec-0*1' ****"'
ond base for the Tribe. That's .
what John Quinn bought him for, because Jack Dittmer was
the chink in the Tripe's otherwise almost impregnable armor
1 in 1853.
' tar last season, however, many trained observers were of
the "ftion that third base was O'Connell's b>st spot, and with
the"ph4iqmenM Idle Mathews the Braves require a third sack-
I er precisely like Charley Grimm needs a hole in hU head. Man-
ager Qrlrnra also possesses an accomplished shortstop in John-
} py Logan.
General manager Rickey made three fantastic deals, trans-
[actions the local trade didn't like, in 14 months They sent out-
fielder GUi Ban to the Reds, outfielder Ralph Kiner and his
(7,500 contract to the Cubs for $100,000 and hired hands and
ow young O'Connell to the Braves.
O'Connell's departure leaves the Corsairs with no one to ell
the customers, and they are screaming louder than ever.
But Mahatma Rickey is now on a Strict budget and his own.
Jnder him, the PiUaburgh Nationals lost $lj0O.00Q m three
rears; $1,300,000 the first two, whioh included a bonus orgy.
In 1948, the Pirates drew 1,517.000 paid admissions into
srbes Field. Last season this dropped to 572,000. the lowest In
la years.
The Braves' Milwaukee bonanza showed profit of $1;700,000
the deal was made before the end of the year to beat the ln-
me tax collector.
IB return for O'Connell. in addition to the swag, the Pirates
julred pitcher Max Surkont. outfielder-third haseban Sid
- irry LaSalle, Curt Raydon and Fred Waters.
Surkont wins in the spring, but his weight wears him down
f ter July A.
Gordon is 35, and with a close to $35,000 parchment wasn't
,ly to. remain with the Pirates, too long. Sldriah sounded
aore Ilka the Phillies or Giants, where he could pinch hit and
ppose left-hand pitching. Rickey said he wasn't counting on
Jethroe, who batted .100 for Toledo last trip, yet he spoke of a
peed movement. If swiftness is what Rickey is seeking, ha
[doesn't have to go any farther than ol' Sam.
Of the minor league pitchers, southpaw LaSalle, who won
J10 while dropping 5 for Jacksonville of the Class A Sally League,
[definitely has a chance-. Although LaSalle. 23, is on the small
[aide, he throws hard and the bajl is alive. Raydon won 11 While
I dropping 1 for the same outfit. Waters, also a smallish left-
hander, had a 10 and 10 record with Lincoln of the A Western,
put reports say he can't pitch quoits.
Danny O'Connell best pictures the dismal Pittsburgh situa-
tion. Informed of the swap taking him to the Braves, the Pater-
son, M. J., Irishmen said hopefully. ''They can't call it off, can
they?"

The White House said today
that Southern Congressmen who

The local branch has been try-

Decoration For
Mr. & Mrs. Oliver
Members of the Alumni So-
ciety of the Pan-American In-

greed Tuesday night to request
the Manuel Amador Guerrero
Order for Walter and Anna
Oliver, former directors of the
private bl-llngual Institution of
learning.
Mr. and Mrs. Oliver, who
headed IPA for several years,
contributed greatly to Its suc-
cess and prestige, a spokesman
for the society said.
The society will direct Its re-
quest to the Panama govern-
ment.
His bid received on the eleven
houses on Ridge Road which are
to be demolished, was rejected
by the Panam Canal Company
and the invitation will be read-
vertlsed.
Two other bids were rejected;
because they were not responsive
to the conditions of the invita-
tion as It stipulated performance
depending on the disposition of
the material or the waiver of
bond requirements.
The houses In the Balboa Flats
are part of a large group being
demolished In the overall devel-
opment plan for that area. The
Ridge Road houses are the last
remaining on that street which
Is now being rebuilt. They are all
one-family cottages built more
than 30 years ago.
Bids on all the structures were
opened Tuesday morning In the
office of the superintendent of
storehouses at Balboa.

Would-Be Suicide
Fined $25 For
Disturbing Peace
A young seaman who twice
this year tried to do away with
himself was found guilty today
of disturbing the peace and after
a short recess was called Bal-
boa Magistrate Judge E. Altman
fined Jorge R. Ungo $29 and Im-
posed a SO day jail sentence,
which was suspended.
The 2J-year-old Salvadorean,
who told the Judge he didn't
know why he made the repeated
suicide attempts, was also plac-
ed on one year probation.
On Christmas morning Ungo
appeared at the place of his em-
ployment, the Balboa Harbor-
masters Office, and when told
he had missed the ship on which
he worked, flew into a rage, pull-
ed out a crude knife and stab-
bed himself eight times in the
abdomen before startled spec-
tator could stop hint.
He appeared in court this
morning, apparently bom tr*
worse for wear, and said he felt
perhaps he acted that way be-
cause he was under the influ-
ence of liquor at the time. His
stamina Is attributed to his good
physical condition as a wrestler.
The government moved this
morning to dismiss the original
charge of Intoxication brought
against Ungo, and substituted
instead the disturbing the peace
charge.
Earlier this week the govern-
ment asked for a continuance of
the case until the defendant
could be put under mental ob-
servation at Gorges.
A report submitted In court
this morning showed that Ungo
was not suffering from any
mental disease. It Is expected
that he will lose hi* job in the
Canal Zone now, and Ungo said
he may return to his homeland
