Reveals Story On
Govt Property &!e
Congressman Herbert C. Bonner has
released a report through his sub
committee revealing a chain of events
which enabled certain individuals to
obtain property purchased by the
Government for nearly 5 million
dollars. These individuals paid ap
proximately $35,000 as the cost of
this property to a school.
Clayton C. Harrah, an aircraft parts
dealer, and Howard L, Pemberton,
formerly a test pilot, along with three
other- individuals Started acquiring
Government surplus property in De
cember, 1946. This property was ac
quired in the name of the Bunker
Hill School, which was an existing
high school in Indiana. None of this
property was ever delivered to the
high school. Instead it was shipped
to the Bunker Hill Naval Air Station.
The Air Station was leased from
the Navy for a dollar a year plus,
maintenance by the Town of Bunker
Hill, Indiana. The town had sub
leased the Air Station to a private j
corporation which was farming the
land and renting the buildings thereon
for storage. The proposed school used
this facility as their base of opera
tions, though no lease was ever ob
tained from the corporation or Town.
In March, 1947, the Bunker Hill
School of Aeronautics was incorporat
ed as a non-profit school. Surplus
property continued to pour into the
base until August, 1947. No classes
were ever taught by the aeronautical
school. Though the school was in
tended to have facilities for 300 stu
dents, only around 30 ever expressed
any interest in enrolling; and none
were actually, . "enrolled for 5 future
classes. There was little evidence of
a bona fide attempt on the part of
- the incorporator of the school to
acquire desks, blackboards, and other
necessary equipment for Instruction.
At the insistence of the Navy De
partment in the latter part of 1947,
the school was evicted from the Air
Station ; because terms for leasing
could not be agreed upon. In trying
to move, the proposed school had
difficulty in finding a new location.
. This resulted in the property being
stored in numerous places.
Starting' in March, 1950, the in
corporators of this school started to
sell the property acquired. In one
ease 26 Lycoming Aircraft, Engines
; which had cost 10 dollars each were
sold for $3,750. Though other receipts
were not this sensational, much pro
perty was sold, and the total receipts
have amounted to $27,0CO. There are
still vast quantities "bf surplus proper
ty in "the possession of these indi
Congressman Bonner stated that the
evidence in the possession of the sub
committee wiH be turned over to the
Department of Justice. , He said at
least the investigation has opened
the way for the United States Govern
ment to attempt to reclaim the' pro
perty in the possession of the indi
viduals or to obtain damages from
