XT3HT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, APRIL 9, 1949 THE NATION TODAY Economic Double Talk Serves To Confuse US Taxpayers Who Search for Simple Explanation By June* AUrlow ' WAHQNOTOM, April 9. (f)—I must nave a tin ear, or maybe s£t WkM lfp(Ui't wronc, but when •conomikis talk It's like listening to MM people upstairs. It'* over my head. And all I hear is a buzz. ' Tbto It all right «cept that when they talk it's about you »nd IM Mkd whet* we are and where we're going, and since I'm mixed up ta it rd Uk« to know which Is which. ''Bom* ot the people who keepl fifinc n» trouble are President Truman'* Council of Economic Advisers, a three-man outfit which ts- auea reports every now and then on the state of the nation. I always read the reports, and 50 to sleep, and wake up, and try them again, and I keep on writing pieces about how I can't understand them, but they won't listen and they keep on sending out the reports. ."A little while ago when prices dropped, the chief of the council, Dr. Edwin O. Nourse, said we're In ay. period of "healthy disinflation" and that pulled the light switch on me altogether. Obituaries ' And on March 18 In Chicago he said the price drop Is not a picture of "unforeseen and uncontrollable disaster" but may be » "ratlonnl and guided action." No One Knows Then this week he came back, •peaking of the "progressive abatement, of inflationary pressures." He Mid; , "It is still too soon to be sure whether this easing will go so much further as to produce a real 'recession' or whether It may level out or give way to renewed forces ol Inflation." I toot that home with me and If I understand the language Dr Hours* is saying now he doesn't know whether we're headed for boom or bust. But he said a lot of other things on Tuesday and a lot of oilier people besides me must have had some trouble with his prose because yesterday Mr. Truman came to tlif rescue and said Dr. Nourse was Quoted out of context In reports on his talk. Seems Dr. Nourse was speaking of three things: The money we have to spend on our armed forces; the money we have to spend on Marshall plan help for Europe; and the money we have to spend arming bur allies mirier the Atlantic pact TChaj Do We DoT The tiuestlon was: Do we have to add the Atlantic pact money to the money for the other two, or what do we do? ; I think Dr. Nourse had an answer for this, but I'm not sure, so I'll Just quote him, in part at least, and hope I'm not quoting him out of context: "In the somewhat technical terms of. the economist and the business manager, we have turned to horizontal integration of the defense function to effect operative economies. "Under thk Integration we expect to buy better security at the Mine coat or even, in due time, at lower cost than would otherwise be required. "That Is, we are now giving tangible expression to the belief that Joint security Is the truest and most economic pattern of security under our present development of airborne atomic power and of political enlightenment. . ." and he said we must: -Rework the whole operational •nd financial plan so as to gain maximum security with minimum strain on our economy. The problems needs to be handled with unsentimental business efficiency Jaycees Plan For Rubinoff Concert Here Plans for sponsoring an appearance here of flublnoff and !>/. violin were advanced last night nt a meeting of a Junior Chamber of Commerce Committee in the Jaycee club rooms.
