(AP)— President Truman is the heal on business, not on labor, to get this country of it slump. He wants businessmen to cut prices, but not wages. He made this clear in his report to Congress on Monday and in his radio talk last night. Further, he challenged steel companies to let government fact-finders check on their ability to meet their workers' demands. Mr. Truman thinks there's reason to worry about tiie economic illness which the country is suffering now. One of the main cures he main cures he suggests la a cut in prices. Too-high prices, he »ays, brought on Hie Inflation. That inflation WSLS bound to bust sooner or later, lie says, and it's busted now. His reasoning goes: When prices soared after the war, people v.'ith money to spend bought what they needed, in spite of the prices. At last they had to begin cutting down on their buying becavise or the big gap between the price.s and their pocketbooks. Full Employment N«-ce(»sary 3. The more the buying ,the more Hie need tor production of things that people want to buy. And that will mean more people employed to do the producing. 4. But il wages are cut, wher prices are cut, then the gap between prices and ability to buy remains the same and people wil have too little money to buy th. reduced goods. 5. Therefore, to keep up people's ability to buy, wages should not be r»xon if Convict*!

Q UITE literally, it's one car in a thousand — 999 other cars (ake the road for every Estate Wagon Buick turns oiH. But it's far more than something exclusive, as you'll soon see when one takes its place in your garage. .For those times, for instance, when house guests arrive —what smarter equipage could you send to the station, what greater comfort, what handier way to manage the luggage problem? And when the Lord and Master yearns for a few days away from it all —what's handier than this nimble gadabout, that lets him fold down a back seat at nightfall and enjoy full-length double- bed sleeping space? And that place in the country, calling for a car that can go just about everywhere, do just about everything .. . That's when you'll go for the ruggedness of this beauty with its steel framing, steel top and springs of durable, service-free coiled steel. Thai's when you'll go for Dynaflmv Drivet too — and the steady, even, Huid pull that takes furrowed fields, rough pastures and narrow back roads with equal, shift-free ease. In all truth, this is a star of many roles. Smart and sleek, finished like an express cruiser, it's a standout for style in any parking line-up, a family favorite for its quick rc-.ulincss to take on any transportation job. It's a buy, too, like all Buicks—and your dealer is offering pleasantly prompt delivery.
