The war department ordered the
army's general headquarters air force
today to hold its mid-winter maneuv-
ers at Oscoda, Mich~, near Saginaw

Lack of army flying fields in Maine

Prof. Benson Describes
Changes Proposed By
By TUURE TENANDER
A very distinct improvement in the
system of auditing and supervising'
the nation's finances will result when,
and if, the recommendations made by
the President's Committee on Admin-
istrative Management for revision of
the fiscal auditing system are enact-
ed, Prof. George C. S. Benson of thej
University Bureau of Government
"There is no large, modern govern-
ment in the world," Professor Benson'
said, "that tries to get along with
the system of auditing now in use
in this country, nor does one find
such a system used in industry."
Critized By President
Much justified criticism has been
made, he said, of the way in which
the office of the Comptroller General
has been used. President Roosevelt,
in his message to Congress on reor-
ganization last week, said in part:
"The committee does not spare the
Camptroller General for his failure
to give the Congress a prompt and
complete audit each year, totally in-
dependent of administration, as a
means of holding the executive truly,
to account; nor for his unconstitu-
tional assumption of executive power;
nor, for the failure to keep the ac-
counting system of the government
up to date to serve as the basis of
information, management andscon-
trol . .."
System Sometimes Fails
"The pre-auditing system now
used," Professor Benson explained,
"fails to catch certain errors that
would in all probability be caught if
a periodic method of auditing were
used. It is always recognized that
the control of expenditures before
they are made is an essential part
of the administrative process but the
time for a check-up from the out-
side is after the expenditures have
been made," he said.
One of the chief criticisms of the
General Accounting Office at present,
in Professor Benson's opinion, is the
fact that the Comptroller General
has "arrogated to himself powers
that do not belong to him."
"The Comptroller General is not
an administrative officer and does
not cooperate with other adminis-1
trative officials," he said. "There has
been too legalistic and technical an
interpretation of the office' powers
with no eye for real governmental
economy," he added.
Another criticism made by Pro-
fessor Benson of the present system
is that much of the machinery of the
General Accounting Office merely
duplicates that of the executive de-
partments and of the Budget Bu-
The changes advocated by the
President on the basis of his com-
mittee's report would provide for an
auditor general who would conduct
an independent post audit of the
"The recommendations provide for
giving the executive the right to pre-
scribe auditing systems and to settle
claims against the government," Pro-
fessor Benson said. "The Secretary
of the Treasury and the Attorney
General would also have the right to
interpret and decide upon legal fiscal
issues," he added.
Favors Periodic Audits
"I favor strongly the adoption of
all the fiscal recommendations made
by the committee," Professor Ben-
son said, "with the exception of the
continuous auditing method. I be-
lieve the adoption of a process of
periodic audits is to be preferred
over the continuous system," he said.
If the recommendations are adopt-
ed. Professor Benson feels, the re-
sponsibility for expenditures will be
placed firmly in the executive branch.
Under the present system, he said,
the Comptroller General is not re-
sponsible to anyone and often cases
have had to be decided by the United
States Supreme Court in order to re-
voke the mandate handed down by
the Comptroller General.
"Under the proposed revision," Pro-
fessor Benson said, "the auditor-gen-
eral must submit a report of any ex-
penditures under question to Con-
gress if he and the Secretary of the
Treasury do not agree on whether
or not the item is to be allowed."

Representation Is Question
No one doubts, it was pointed out,
that one of the main purposes of the
Board is to determine representation.
And that is the big question in the
General Motors strike. The United
Automobile Workers union demands
recognition as the sole bargaining
agency, and at the same time gives
no conclusive proof that it has the
majority of the workers needed to
entitle it, under the act, to be recog-
nized as such.
Indeed, many observers doubt thatI
the union does have a majority of
members or even a majority of sym-
pathizers among the non-union
strikers, as large as its minority in
that field may be. So, Professor
Riegel declares, the union, thus be-
ing in an unsure position, will prob-
ably not ask the Board to conduct
So, since it appears that the Board
will not act unless asked to do so by
the union, it will not act at all be-
cause the union will not request it.
Board Has Two Duties
Yet, as Prof. Edgar Durfee of the
Law School asserts, "the outstand-
ing idea of the whole statute is to
provide machinery for the determin-
ation of labor representation."
The Board has two essential duties,
Professor Reigel explained. The first
has to do with the determining of
jurisdictional lines, i.e., saying what
unions shall be concerned with what
industries and what sections of the
country. It is here that possible dif-
ficulties with the A.F. of L. and the

on the Michigan situation, deals with
