government guarantees an aggregate
return of some $900,000,000 a year,
the measure set forth the conditions
upon which the government opera-
tion is to be caried on. In addition to
Lspecified powers given the president.
the bill would authorize him to exer-
cise other powers necessary to main-
tain practical government operation,
-nd to delegate his authority to any
agency.
Under the last provision the presi-
dent is expected to issue a'I order
transferring to Director General M'-
Adoo all functions vested in the chief
executive.
Added Vower For Government
The broad power which the adminis-
tration would have over the roads is
illustrated by the bill's provision that
the president r.ight order any exten-
sion or improvements and advance
funds necessary for these. The pro-
ceedure in such cases would be for
the road to issue bonds to finance the'
improvements and these bonds would
be absorbed by the government revolv-
ing fund.
If congre passes the bill with
a $500,000,000 appropriation, this sum
will have to be raised by issue of ad-
ditional liberty bonds unless it should
become apparent that economies un
der the government pooling system
are sufficient to counterbalance spe-
cial expenditures and meet a possible
deficit in this year's earnings, undr
a standard return.
