Page Two Forrestal to Visit Truman, Learn Fate Key West, Fla., Nov. 17 — Iff)—. Announcement that Secretary of Defense Forrestal is flying "down ipmornv to have lunch "with President Truman stirred Speculation today the time of his departure tiom the cabinet will be discussed, Presidential Press Secretary Charles G. Ross said simply that Forrostal will be a guesl of the chinf executive at his Southern White House" on the naval submarine base. The defense secretary told a news conference in Paris thai ho does not expect lo serve out another four years in the cabinet. He snid he was leaving up to Mr. Truman to decide when his resignation will become effective. The president talked with For- teslal by long-distance telephone this morning. Ross said. In the conversation, Forrestal expressed a desire to see the chief executive. Whereupon, the president invited him to flv down from Washington to have lunch at his quarters in the commandant's house. Roprcsenlativeve Sarn Rayburn (D-Texas) the prospective speaker of the House again when the Democrats organize it in January, is coming in tomorrow also. Ross Said Rayburn would arrive in time for dinner. fioss made it clear . that Mr. Truman had not "summoned" Forrestal to Florida. There is the possibility the defense chief will fly back tomorrow afternoon. Ross would nol go beyond Ihe bare announcement. Ross said 40,000 pieces of mail and 10.000 telegrams of congratulation have been received at the White House in Washington alone since Mr. Truman's election victory. Mr. Truman's delay in reorganizing his'administrative was attributed by close associates today 1o concern about picking replacements for those who are to go. These sources, unquotable by name, said the president is in no hurry lo shake up his cabinet until he can complete selection of a team to carrv on during the next four years. As he told a news conference here yesterday, everybody has been shuffling the cabinet around but Ihe vresident. Mr. added he would act at the proper i time. i™ His major problem will be lo JK S pick a successor lo Forreslal and a man lo succeed Robert B.

Ben Laney, virulent opponent of any increase in Arkansas' bonded indebtedness, is finding himself in the odd position of having smoothed the way for a bond issue by the next administration. Leading fiscal experts agreed today that had il not been for Laney's work in stabilizing stale finances and obtaining Eastern recognition for Arkansas securities, any sale of additional bonds would be difficult. And, even if purchasers could be found, wilhoul Laney's work Ihe interest rale' on any new issues probably would be p-ohibitive. As matters now stand—with the stale's balanced budget and sound fiscal standing— the experts believe il will be comparatively easy (o sell bonds should the people approve Gov.-elect Sid McMath's highway conslructlion program And, they add, the interest could be low. Perhaps below 3.2 per cent being paid on current highway sucuritics. McMath was elected on a platform to sell bonds to build highways and at the present timve a sub-committee of the state legislative council is working out the necessary legislation. The 1949 general assembly will be asked to act quickly on the bills so that a special election may be called before the legislators adjourn. When Laney came into office four years ago, Arkansas securities were not in good repute on Eastern markets. They were not approved by the stale banking deparl- menls of New York or Conneclicut nr, suitable imvcstmenls for savings banks and trust funds. Following a trip to New York by Governor Laney,' both state's placed Arkansas back on their approved lisls. greally expanding Ihe market for the stale's bonds. Bringing Ihe cradle of the big Eastern money inlo the fold had the effect of lowering interesl rales on stale securilies by increasing Iheir value. In addition "Business Ben" sponsored legislation revising the state's fiscal policy. The move provided for the distribution of all stale funds on a per cenlage basis and for Ihe retirement of all of the state's non-highway bonds. This, plus the increased industrialization of the state during Laney's administration, tended to restore confidence of money lenders in Arkansas. Observers believe that the governor's past actions, plus' future legislative guarantees',' leading! J to proper expenditure of proceeds'of any bond issue, would go "far°ih overcoming the 'reluctance 'of fiii- aneiers t'6 'boost the s'tate's'-ehoix rnous $118,OtiO v OOO'highway -bonded 1 ehdebtedness. •'!''•' ••'' ' '•• •••'/•;-| Laney' himsel'f •' still : believes that' the'"'creation of" "an' additio'nal'f debt" ,is' ; iipt the 1 answer 1 to''"me"" highway problem': 'But he 'refufe' to-say-whether he- will flgljt a proposal if it 'should : be~-pred lo the people; ' •••';•• Wednesday, November 17, 1948 Sign of Trouble in Britain Member of the Associated Press: The Associated Press is entitled exclusively tc the use for republicalion of all tho (oca news printed in this newspaper, as well a' ill AP news dispatches.

Dewcy was in, they had been assured by their newspapers, their radio commentators, their columnists their poll takers and their barbers. Never before in history had so many words been written to support a foregone conclusion. And never before were so many predictions scrapped on the morning alter an election. Some of the poll takers quit taking polls some months ago because the outcome was so obvious. (Some of them should have quit long before they did, it appears.) But somehow the American voters didn't vote the way they told the poll takers they would.

Not so in America. Nobody with gun* takes over our seats of government during the night. J'.'vcn those officeholders who lost will continue at their same- old stands for a couple more months. That is the American way. just as it is the American way for free 1 voters to name their meii, and for all to support the winners once the returns arc in.

Food Price Drop Won't 1 > Philadelphia, Nov. 17 —(/I 5 )—Mrs. Housewife can count on a drop in food prices, but she shouldn't expect the cost of living to go down. A man who ought to know, Ewan Clague, commissioner of the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Slalislics. said the food price fall will be balanced by increases in items in heavy demand. Amonn these he listed rents, steel, automobiles nnd Marshall plan exports. ^ Claque spoke yesterday at a conference arranged by the industrial council of the Chamber of Commerce. "At present," he lold 250 busi- less executives, "our consumer orices have reached a peak and i'arm prices arc, if anything, com- 'f! down." "At the same time," Claque added, "there is a tremendous up- ivarcl pressure starting in commodities where there still exists a heavy postwar demand." Claque figured that "the general*' economic outlook appears very favorable," adding that industrial employment is at an all-time high with 40,000,000 holding jobs, a gain of 3,000,000 since the end of the war. He warned, however, that shortages in the supply of skilled labor "will very likely occur on a greater scale than has been true since _ .... , , the war years, and many em- Qualified observers here hold the Iployers in some areas will find —""- i*--*--•-•-•• --'--'themselves .badly pinched for.. labor. de dIAs'the wioienm French tnriiue lsu;ilke .'continues, many Qii,.ih;e[ miners' • 'fehjiMf erJ ciifit- 'being Jevauimtfcd' HjoO'tHe safety, of Paris.' i i Hejre) a sSv '•• .HniMX,/*-•'tJU.Wqier'.tll-ii^l,.; who- will be career-Mr by.a. ends.
