.. . . v, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1944 BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS State To Hold Economic Gains Postwar Decline May Be Less Than After First World War FAYETTEVILLE, Dec. l.-Arknn- fias probably will be able to reUUn & greater proportion of the eco- I'-omlc gains made during the current war than It v.-as able to do following the first world war, In lite opinion of Dr. Rulledgc Vining al the University of Arkansas Col- m'C of Business Administration. Writing in the November Issue of tlie Arkansas Business Bulletin, published by the College of Business Administration In cooperation with tlie Bureau ol University Ile- Eoarch, Dr. Vining said: "Due to the difference In (lie task of the expansion of deposits ill this war, deposits in the United States as a whole are not expected to decline after this war as they did after the last. However, there v-'iH doubtless be geographical shuts of deposits, and Arkansas would appear likely to show a decline relative to the entire nation. "Vet, more of the economic gains shown by Arkansas during this war-boom will likely be retained than was the case after the last wnr, for the southwest, is now showing manufacturing trends that should lead to a. more diversified nnd stable Arkansas economy."

Blddle hasn't had a press conference In two years or more. He s available to the correspondents Individually whenever they have something lm|K>rtant enough to ask nun, which is seldom. It is explained that whenever there is anything controversial on which the Attorney General can't talk, he doesn't want to see the press. And when there Isn't anything to talk about the press doesn't want to sec him. So the Ally. Gen. ybcs his solitary, silent way, running an unofficial keeping-mouth-sluit race with Secretary of Agriculture Wicknrd, Secretary of Commerce Jones, War Food Administrator Jones nnd a few others to sec who can maintain thunders of silence tlie longest arid loudest. Biddle's mix-up with Llllell is the' third public ruckus which the Attorney General has had over his principal assistants. There was ciuilc a to-do when Thurman Arnold stepped out of the Anti-Trust division to take a federal Judgcship and nothev when William Power Ma oncy was promoted out of a posl- ion ns special prosecutor for the se- ition trials. Both of these eases, like the Llttcll case, didn't become celebrated through any doing of tiid Attorney General, who would'no doubt have preferred to sec them disposed of quietly. CLASH OP 1'KKSONAMTIKS In the Litlell case, Blddle has admitted that his assistant in charge of the Lands division was right Mi could be on everything—surplus property disposal, on the Navy's Elk Hills oil lease case and the .Army's Breakers Hotel, easo. But sev eral of LIKcll's public speeches, lii which he strayed over Into the llelds of anti-trust, sedition and war activities—which were none of his business—got the Attorney General's goat. Aside from these personal matters, Attorney General Blddle's big moments have come through his participation in the sedition cases the s'ull against the lire insurance underwriters, the suit against the railroads' rate-making practices, ordering the deportation ol Harrj Bridges, (he Montgomery Ward case ordering admission to the U. S, o Mrs. Enrl Browder, ruling that tin a I. O. Political Action Commit cc wasn't as subversive or as mud n violation of the Corrupt Pruc Ices acts as Koprescntiillve Howard Smith and other cliilmcd. The railroad and Insumnce cases weren't exactly the results of Hid- It's own Initiative, but Inherited. Ill the others uro Diddle policies md, with (he possible exception of lie Bridges order, they" represent he Attorney General's Ideiis of ad- ttincod liberalism.
