This accounts for the lack of new anti-inflationary meas ures aet the present time, and growing concern with meas ures to bolster purchasing power, such as the reduction of personal income taxation now scheduled for next year, No serious setbacks are be ing forecast by government officials, but the situation is being watched closely. It is believed that inflationary and anti-inflationary factors in the economy will tend to balance off, with changes within 'a fairly narrow range so that the economy will seem reasonably stable. Nourse' View. A somewhat more advanced view is taken by leading economic analysts outside the administration. Congress was warned last week by Edwin G. Nourse, a conventional economist who was chief economic adviser in the Truman administration, that the situation is rather critical. He said the trend Is toward industrial produc-; tion beyond the immediate wants of consumers next year. . "It seems likely that next year will see a still further enlarged output somewhat out of balance . . . with reduced demand," Nourse told the congressional economic subcommittee studying the effect of automatic manufacturing processes (automation). .

Nrwi Service. HOLLYWOOD, CAL. UP) The drafting of a code of ethics for producers of television films was initiated Friday night at a meeting of the National Society of Television Producers and the National Audience Board. The product of TV film studios ultimately is judged by the ethical ' rules of the code of the National Association of Television and Radio Broadcasters when the film arrives at a TV station. However, no self-censorship rules have been drawn up previously for use before and during production of TV films. Tom Lewis, president of the producer society, said the National Audience Board "is interested in seeing to it that the viewing public receives shows portrayed in a manner that does not contribute to the delinquency of children or violates morals and good concepts" Martin Leeds, executive producer for Desilu Productions, was named chairman of a committee to explore the formulation of a production code. Working with him are William Mooring, 'columnist of the Roman Catholic publication The Tidings; Richard St. John of the Alliance of Television Producers; Jack M. Warner, jr., representing television units of major movie studios, and Max Gilford of the producers' society.

Leased Wire to The Register. UCKFIELD, ENGLAND Princess Margaret and Peter Townsend kept a well-guarded weekend rendezvous Saturday as millions of Britons believed the hour of decision is near. Will it be a wedding? Or is it farewell? These were the questions as the 25-year-old ' princess and her 40-year-old divorced war hero friend, pondered their problems in a seclued mansion on the Sussex downs. Their chief problem,' of course, is the unalterable opposition of the Church of England to remarriage for even the innocent party as Townsend is of a divorce. Captain Townsend, who di-j vorced his wife in 1952 on the ground of adultery, is under stood to feel exceptionally keenly the church's position. A Religious Couple. He is said to be deeply re ligious. It is believed that one of the strongest bonds between him and the princess is their spiritual communion. As they spent the weekend with friends in the country Margaret at Uck-field House and Townsend at nearby Eridge Castle the perplexed lovers had every opportunity to make a final decision. In the last week the princess has conferred with the Archbishop of Canterbury her long time personal friend but chief opponent of a marriage and talked things over with her sister, Queen Elizabeth II. In court circles the feeling was that now finally "the evidence is in." Postponed a Week. The Uckfield meeting originally was arranged for last week, but apparently was postponed because of Margaret's desire for more time. She spent last weekend with the queen at Windsor castle. Capt Oliver Dawnay, the queen mother's private secretary, arrived at Uckfield late in the afternoon, causing speculation that he was acting as a confidential messen ger from Margaret's mother. Townsend's Duties. Competent observers expecting a decision and an official announcement soon stressed Townsend's air force assignment. Nothing has been said of any change in arrangements for him to resume his duties as air attache at Brussels, on Nov. 7. His return to Belgium without a clear statement on his future, and that of the princess, would only ' add to public confusion. Towisencl, according to friends .who have seen him within the last 48 hours, is depressed and is beginning to show signs of fatigue. "If this goes on much longer, he'll be a nervous wreck," said a young woman who, with her husband, has known Townsend for several years. SPhrLI I IL J at the Crack U. S.

This is not quite the fantasy it might seem. Soviet economic officials have asked the National Sales Executives Organization to send over a group of members to brief them, on American selling and "distribution techniques. The invitation has been officially accepted, and Robert A. Whitney, the society's president, says the mission is scheduled for early next year. All Phases. Team members will give talks, with co'or slides and other visual aids, on the whole range of marketing techniques. They will explain direct, or door-to-door, selling methods, installment ' credit, product and market research, sales management, the role of packaging design in stimulating sales, etc. The Russians have ' in-; dicated they want to learn as much as possible about all these techniques, which in this country have joined vast production to equally vast consumption.

Nw Vnrk Tlmp.-!p Muftir! ItrfMrr ' Nw Service. GENEVA. SWITZERLAND U. S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles Saturday accused the Soviet Union of flouting orders of the Big 4 heads of governmsnt on Ger man reunification and European security, Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov was told bluntly by Dulles that the Soviet proposals submitted to the con ference Friday failed to carry out the "spirit or letter" of the summit conference's directive in July. 1 Dulles said the Soviet proposals appeared aimed at "indefinite division of Germany." Molotov responded with a suggestion that the Western plan for security, also tabled Friday, was too limited in scope. Security in Europe, the Russian foreign minister said, could be attained only through an all-Europeaa pact or "at least" a treaty embracing all those nations that had suffered from German militarism. Tempers Grow Short. This clash between the two leading figures at the foreign ministers conference in the Palace of Nations dramatized the widening differences between East and West on the first item on the meeting agenda: European security and German reunification. The session marked a furth er retreat from the atmosphere of amiable disputation which marked the conference, opening. Saturday tempers grew short as time went on. Molotov abandoned sweet reason for torturous arguments. . Both sides raked up old issues, such as which power first started German rearmament. ' The conference will meet again on Monday, when there will he general discussion of the third item on the agenda: Development of East - West contracts.
