In Purchasing
Is Criicized
Auditor Vernon J. Brown
Cites Lack Of Method
In System Within State
LANSING, Aug. 15.-(U)-Auditor
General Vernon J. Brown declared
today there was much talk in state
governmernt of "scientific methods of
buying but we never done anything
about it."
Charging the much advertised new
state purchasing system had failed
to correct wasteful practices, Brown
asserted "we have a new purchasing
director chosen but he hasn't been
given a chance to do the job as it
should be done."
The director, Brown declared, has
jurisdiction only over purchases of
less than $1,000, while the big sales
remain under control of Wendell L.
Lund, secretary of the Administrative
Browp criticized the department
for not buying in large quantities,
depicting, as an example, al instance
in which between $15 and $20 was
spent on accounting, auditing and
other costs in connection with a pur-
chase of a $1.35 item.
"W, bought 273 tons of coffee for
our institutions last year but instead
of making a two or three lot purchase
to take advantage of the low price
obtainable in quantity buying, we
bought that, coffee in thousands of
lots," Brown said.
The purchasing committee of the
admipstrative board progressed to-
ward a completed buying system by
hiring three of six persons who passed
civil service tests for buyers.

Strange Stroller Strolls
On New York Sidewalks
NEW YORK, Aug. 15.-(AP)-Fifth
Avenue, famous promenade, probably
never had such a stroller on its side-
walks as it had today.
Against almost overwhelming odds,
tPeter, a 450-pound, seven-foot sea
lion, escaped from a crate in which
he was being removed from the Pro-
metheus fountain in the sunken olaza
of Rockefeller Center, and went for a
twenty-minute stroll down the street.
Peter tried to enter a cosmetics
shop, but the door was slammed in
his face. Then he reluctantly entered
the crate.

President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill (seated right) were surrounded by their army and navy chieftains when tkiey held their
dramatic meeting at sea. This pipture, made aboard the British battleshi p H. M. S. Prince of Wales, was released by the White House in Washington
with the following identification: Standing (left to right)--Harry Hopkins, lease-lend administrator; W. Averill Harriman, lease-lend coordinator
in London; Admiral E. J. King, commander of the Atlantic Fleet; General George Marshall, chief of staff; General Sir John G. Dill, chief of the
Imperial British staff; Admiral Harold R. Stark, chief of naval operations, and Admiral Sir Dudley Pound, first sea lord of Britain.


White House Releases Pictures Of Historic Diplomatic

Sea Meeting

WASHINGTON, Aug. 15.-(P)-The
White House released a ,new batch1
of pictures taken at the historic sea
meeting of President Roosevelt and
Prime Minister Churchill and-just
like those of a Sunday picnic-the
unposed ones were the best.
There was one of Mr. Roosevelt
laughingly listening to Mr. Church-
ill tell a story, Churchill's face puck-
ered, one hand holding' a pair of
gloves and the other gesturing in
mid-air. Incidentally it disclosed the
Prime Minister wears slide fasteners
on his shoes. Capt. Elliott Roosevelt,

aide on his army uniform, stands
nearby holding his father's hat.
Then, on the other hand, there was
a formal picture of the two princi-
pals and their highly-ranked associ-
ates. Dinner dress was worn, Chur-
chill with a row of medals on the
jacket which covers his stiff shirt.
The President wears a soft white
shirt and so does Harry Hopkins,
the lease-lend supervisor. Hopkins'
shirt is too big for him; either he
had to borrow from a larger friend or
the shirt dates back past his long,

and it i, a tossul who is the graver----
Mr. Roosevelt or his undersecretary
of state, the high-domed Sumnerj
There is-one peculiarly dramatic
picture. It was taken at the moment
Prime Minister Churchill started
down the gangplank of the U.S.
Cruiser Augusta. His back is to the
camera and President Roosevelt is
standing at attention, his eyes on the
departing visitor and his felt hat held
over his chest.
A panoramic shot showed Sunday
services on the Battleship H.M.S.

Prince of Wales under four of its big
guns. The ship's crew is massed in
attendance, a small band stands in
formation in front of robed clergy-
Machines Stolen
NEW YORK, Aug. 15.-()P)-Police
