TAOM TWO BLYTHEVTTXE (ARK.) COURTEK NCWS MONDAY, JULY 11, TMI NATION TODAY Economic Experts Offer Heavy Reading Diet for Taxpayers of U.S. While the Summer Sun Boils RT James Marlntr WASHINGTON, July U. (A*t—Now th;U th« spy cases have becu put on ice—and unless we run into some uiifor^rni sensations—we can look forward to a .summer diet of economics, President Truman makes his economic report to CoiiKie.vs 'today. And that Is sure to be the cause of jeers and rlieers In Congress. It always is, every time he makes one. +-- — In fact, the Jawing bark and forth »bout It, in ?nd out of Congress, will use up n soort part of the week, at least. A»d you will b« hearing references to it up into next winter. As usual, this will leave the public a bit puzzled ss to who's right but hoping that things will work out and that we won't, in the end, land on our skulls with our pockets empty and no jobs. Crisis In Britain This puxzloment can be pxjwiricri a n y time I h e economist.** -slnrt fl.nging their jargon around since, after all, economics isn't a science, and a lot of experts were wrong in 1929, and since. Meanwhile, we'll have the British economic crisis with us for a Rood while, it won't be solved in a day or a week. We'll be hcnring about that for months, particularly since we'll be Involved []1 whatever the British do. There's the question of whether the CIO .into worker;- and the steel I condiuo workers \vill go on .strike. That i ""Hook decision' certainly will have an cf- fecl on (he economy, which is skidding a bit already. But that isn't all. in Congress a House committee K-as to begin today an investigation into monopoly in this country. So we'll be hearing about that. Then v.'e'll have to sit through— before Congress quits this summer —debates in Congress on renewal oT the reciprocal trade agreements act. HMTJ- Dfet for Summer Reading: This'seems certain to get congressional approval, but. not without A lot of palaver. Congress ts away behind time on this one. It was supposed to have been renewed before the date of its death, June 30—it had regularly been renewed every two or three years since 1934—but the Senate rtidn't get around to it. E And when the Senate g e ts j through approving the North At- \ Ian tic pact—it's working on that ] now and seems sure to okay it and •will then tackle the reciprocal trade renewal—H rnay take up the problem of voting money for arms for Europe, perhaps $1 bilKon. But even if the arms program Is considered In Congress this year, Jt's not all sure there'll be approval. So, by and large, you'd belter get ready for some heavy reading in economics, not the easiest warm weather reifding. even though ^bur 1 lives revolve around it.
