TUESDAY, JULY 12, 1349 THE NATION TODAY BI.YTHEVn.l.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Big Shot Economists Employed By Truman, Others by the CIO Make Wide Use of Little Word By Jamn Mario* WASHINGTON, July 12. (£>i—"If" is Hie big word In where we are heading, up or down. The American economy is still at high speed, but it's sliding down hill. Compare today with a year ago: £ Unemployment—almost 4,000,000, about double what It was a year ago; production—running 13 per cent less; corporation profits—around 13 per cent less; farm income—down 8 per cent. Will it set better? Worse? Will we tumble into a depression? Some of the top economists can't give a flat "yes" or "no" answer. When you cut through all their big words, the main point Is "Lf. They think things will get bet-* ter—after a little more sliding down—if business, labor, consumers and the government do certain things. They suggest some remedies and —if—the country follows the prescription, then things ought to level off and be all right again. This .was made clear yesterday in two big and important reports by four outstanding economists. One was by President Truman's three-man counc.l of economic advisers. They work lor the government. CIO Hal Exp«ri, Too The other was by Robert Nathan, hired by the CIO to make a special report on what's happening. When he worked for the government a few years ago, he was one of its most important economists. The President's council took 125 long-winded pages to state the'r case. In mud. tighter prose. Nathan took 50 pages. But when economists handle the language, you have to use tweezers to take It apart. The President's three-man council said: *i "There Is considerable possibility BEhat present adjustments will lead, after some further declines this lummer. to an increase In production." (Things will get worse before they get better, if they get better.) They went on: "But there is still reason for real concern that the present •lack may take a more serious re- cessionary 'turn, or not be succeeded by an expansion to satisfactory levels of employment and production." (In fact, things may not get better at all, but get much worse.) They c ntinued: "Consequently, it Is necfcfeary to approach the situation with positive and constructive measures rather than to assume that the recuperative factors at work are adequate in themselves." (If we want things to gel better, we'd better do something to make them better. Letting nature take Its course won't help.) Council Is Optimistic But to show they're really opt! mistic, after all, the three-man council says they "find the prospect reassuring." Nathan, who gets to his poin a lot faster, says that "business will get worse before it gets better •eems be;-ond dispute." How much worse? That, Nathan i«ys, is a "moot question." But he adds: "There are no firm Indications that a major depression Is immi net nor that a definite upturn Is in prospect within the next fen months." Then Nathan and the President': economic advU«rs suggest variou: medicines for getting us out o the present tall-spin and on mos of their recommendations they agree. Economists are not scientists no are they perfect prophets.

Redman, executive secretary of the Mississippi County Tuberculosis Association, spoke to members oi the Negro Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance at the Carter Temple yesterday mornins. explaining the health program of tiie association.

By DOUGLAS LARSKN NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON —(NBA)— Ply. ng supplies direct from the factory loading platform to the bnUle- [ield is the latest transportation idea under study by the services. Here's the way it would work: Guns, ammunition, food, first aid supplies, even tanks, would fac packed into detached airplane fuselages—pods—at the factory. Giant helicopters would settle down to the loading platforms, attach themselves to the pods, and carry them to the nearest airport. Planes designed for the Job would pick up the pods and fly them overseas for delivery to the airport nearest the battlefield. Helicopters would again pick up the detached, packed fuselages and deliver them straight to the combat area. • * • This method could get emergency supplies from the factory to troops In combat four or five times faster than the quickest emergency delivcrie-s which were made during World War II. The XH-16 the giant helicopter to fly detachable pods, Is now he- ins built for the services by the Piasecki "elicopter Corp. In Philadelphia. Falrchilrt Aircraft Corp. Is building the plane for the Job. the XC-120. The new problem is how to make a detachable fuselage with Interchangeable fittings that can be used by both types of aircraft,. Tills Is said by Air Force engineers to be a relatively simple engineering Job. A third possibility is to make the pods attachable to a truck so that they can move along highways if that should be necessary. The Army and Air Force have financed the Fatrchild project, which Is nimcrt at Improving and speeding airborne operations. It involves quick delivery of complete compact units such as communications centers, first aid stations and command posts, as well as supplies. An enormous amount of time is expected to be saved in the handling of supplies with the use of the detachable pod.
