MONDAY, JUNK Z7, 3949 BLYTHEVrLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NfNB THE NATION TODAY 81 st Congress Also Rates High For Doing Nothing But Talk About Need for Economizing By June* Mirlow WASHINGTON, June 27 W—It's been almost, seven months since this Congress—the »lst—started work. Except for rent control, it hisn't pas- led one major Item of President Truman's campaign promises. This li getting to sound like a< ^phonograph record. Every month 1 iose "watching the show here can pull another 30 days oil the cal- ender and say: "Nothing much done yet." It's been a dull session, indeed, to anyone looking down at it from the galleries, or in the committee hearings, the Jaw-jaw-jawing has been endless, the. results meager. Before it quits for 1949, Congress probably will pass a couple of major Kerns. It Isn't likely to do more than that. t Then when it return* neit Jan- •arj for the second half of iU two-year krm this 81st t:on t rr«s controlled by the Democrats, will let another crack at producing before the 1950 fall elections. Perhaps nothing shows better what has been happening—or, rather, what hasn't been happening— than all the tall talk bout cutting down on government spending. Congressmen and senators have outdone one another with their stern statements that Congress would reduce government expenditures and . . . but just go back a bit: Last January Mr. Truman tume( his budget over to Congress. The budget is his experts' estimate o: what it will cost to run the gov eminent another year. At once Rep. John Taber, New York Republican who preaches ec onomy, got a look at the budge «nd said: "We'll have to go ove )t and try to civilize it." That started a regular econom ifchorns. congress has the power tf ^cut the budget since it's Congres. which votes the money for runnln the government. All that started In January Here It is, late June, and no real eats hi»<- been made yet. Now I majority of icnatorl are talking •f hiring both houses simply pass * measure telling Mr. Truman to do the euttinf. If this goes through, it will b. • very frank confession that Cor gress'has failed, or doesn't kno how, to carry out on of its mo important Jobs: Deciding what th government should spend. As to major items . . . A public housing bill may go through. Then Senate has approved It. the House is considering it now. It's not so sure that a new labor law will be passed to replace the Taft-Hartley act. But unless the House also acts before it quits for 3949, there'll be no new labor law and T-H will stand. The Senate pretty surely will ap- fife, Leaving Home, akes Wheelbarrow; Hubby Wants It Back GREEN BAY, Wis., June 27. (JP)— ohn J. Everard, Route 1.

This doesn't need House approval since the pact, being in the form of a treaty, is a ob for the Senate only. But—beyond the pact, housing and abor—it's hard to see what important legislation this Congress will have time for before It goes home Tor the year. By NF.A Foctlsn Service i ATHENS, Greece (NBA) — The I European Recovery Program has had its acid test in this beaten- up country, which has been at war for nine years. Economic Cooperation Administration officials believe that the corner has been turned and that the Greek people are on the road to more prosperous times. Even before World War II. Greece was a poor country. Then some of the most savage and destructive fighting of the European conflict paralyzed It completely. When the shaky peace came to most of the rest of the world, Greece continued to be ravaged by civil war and guerrilla fighting. The problem looked almost hopeless when the American Mission for Aid to Oreece arrived in 1947, offering emergency military and economic assistance. During the ensuing year. AMAG laid a good foundation for the work that the ECA took over iu the spring ol 1948. EC'A officials set an ambitious goal, a four-year program aimed at getting Greece back on its own reel. Rebuilding of roads, bridges, canals and dock facilities was given top priority, on the theory that transportation must come first In helping a country recover. With x good start on improving the transportation facilities, ECA quickly got the other parts of its plan under way. They include Improving public health, develop- ment of power and irrigation facilities, teaching the farmers better agricultural methods, encouraging the fishing industry, luring a tourist trade to Greece, building .schools and hospitals and establishing new industries. Approximately J63.800.000 has been the cost of the first year's effort in Greece.
