PAGE EIGHT BIvYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COl)R 1EK NEWS THURSDAY, MAY 2, 1946 International Information Bureau Opposed Request for $10,000,000 facet Bitter Assault By Foes in Congress. By DEAN W. UITTMKK United - Prtss Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON. May 2. (UP) — House foes of the State Department's international information service opened a drive today to block legislation carrying $10,000,000 for Its operation. The money is Inclurtt-d in a biii to appropriate $358,825,758 to operate the 3tate, Justice and Commerce Departments and federal judiciary for the fiscal year begin' nlug July 1. The proposal Is now before the House. The Republican-led opposition protested that the Information service had not been authorized 'jy Congress and that the entire bill *iinuld therefore be held up until the $10.000.000 was deleted. Rep. Robert F. Jones, R., O., the Information service should »c killed outright. Rep, John M. Vorys. R., O., said Us funds should at least be withheld until Congress passes a law providing for its operation. Such a bill is stymied in (he House Rules and Foreign Affairs Committees. The , Foreign Affairs Committee once approved it, but the Rules Committee—after a merles of complaints—decided not to send it to the floor. Sam Already Cul in Half. •The Budget Bureau originally recommended $19,284.778 for I he in-! formation program. The Appropriations Committee reported it was not fully satisfied with the agency's operation and slashed the fund lo a flat $10,OM,000. 'Vorys said that if a motion lo sidetrack consideration of the prns- cnt bill should fail, he would offer another to limit the life of tlja information service. .''Secretary of State Byrnes said they have enough motley lo operate the service until July 1." Vorys said. "That would give our committee sufficient time to prepare a bill and bring it to the House." WASHINGTON COLUMN What's Left Of The New Deal ISY !>KTi:ii KDSON NKA Washington t'ori e.s|MimU'iit WASHINGTON. May 2. (NEAI — Leon Henderson—remember?—gave the valedictory address at n two- day convention of the New Council of American Dullness here in Washington, and it was one for the first, last, and all the lime a Ne'.v first, las, and all the lime a New Dealer, but that, like the child found wandering around In the Ijis department store, "Ho wasn't lost— investment or government subsidies, of expanding social .security, of stabilizing the dollar, of build- Ing more highways, and even of limiting the use of alcohol and tobacco. What Henderson declines ha would like to see is a tax policy Hint would balance the U. S. economy at full employment. To achieve (his, he advocate Belling rid of nil corporal Ion (axes and abolishing nil itpgresslvc excise and sales taxes (hat net as a curb on eonsump- Ik'ixlcrson [(ton. ADVOCATES Mama was."

He would, luiwcvcr, eliminate lax- nwinluiniini world 2. The country Is In great confu- allon on Ihe lowest Income groups, nnd would even abandon collection of social security funds by taxes nnd deductions from payrolls. Social security belief Us, Henderson says, should be paid directly from the xupcr-budgel of the federal treasury. If from 12 to u per cent of the national income were • id out In the form of health Insurance, unemployment comperisa- llon, old age and other social security benefits, II would make Ihe country stronger and would bo good business in times of [biding payrolls. Huge pools of savings wouldn't be so necessary under such a .scheme, apparently, for everyone would be spending to maintain prosperity. We were unwilling lo spend what 11 took to Bet the country back on Its feel .in the 1930's, Henderson recalls. Today, he says, the country must maintain high purchaslna power or it will repeat what happened in tile last depression, and another bust of that kind would the chances of •Id peace. World War II Veteran Killed in Auto Accident HOT SPIUNGS, Ark., May 2. c U.I'.)—Joe Meredith, 27-year-old World War II veteran, was killed instantly early today when his car tost u wheel, overturned and hit I u tree on the Fourclie Loop near ! here, physicians said his neck was I broken.

Today's greatest shock is an awareness that nothing lias happened lo change Hip business cycles of lioom and bust, and thiH if the United Slates should enter a period of down-slide, neither Ihe ' executive nor the legislative department of government Is geared to handle it. To deal with these trends, Henderson advocated the creation of a fiscal and monetary authority not only to manage the government's postwar super-budgets, hut also to maintain the highest velocity of business activity nnd foreign trade, lo manage taxation, lha national | debt, and foreign loans—gearing all things lo full employment. NEW nl'AI, WAS NEVER 'ASTI-IIDSINKSS." HE SAYS Henderson's stalemc-nt is remarkable as an expression of what's left of the New Deal philosophy. It's nice to know Ihese things whether you believe tliem or not, so I hey're put down here just for the record. Incidentally. Henderson says the New Deal was never anti- business. The most important political and economic statistic in the country ioday. Henderson dec-tares, is the fad that the federal government is headed towards un 18 to 25 billion dollar annual budget.
