It wns, she said, only 'a "light henried effort designed to .'improve, the oppressive conditions ,dn the campus."

The report is the work of Ihe committee's staff, headed by Bertram B. dross.'' .•.",. , • While the proposal is presented In the form of a bill entitled "The Full Employment Act of 1945," it has not yet been formally introduced to Congress as hew legislation/Instead, It has lieen merely transmitted to Congress without recommendation or commitment, to stimulate dis- ciissloii. It should do that; for tlie bill is revolutionary id character and goes far-beyond • anything yet presented. Its first objective Is to provide full cmplovi!ii;m,. S:ry i'liiil ',f, US million Jobs, I he, goal set by the President in Ills Chicago campaign speech. To provide GO million jobs, suppose it Is determined (lint the "gross nfHional product," us the economists call it—meaning the total national production of goods and services—must be 200 billion dollars a year. A "NATIONAL BUDGET" With these two basic figures established, the bill would require the President to transmit to Congress on the first day of each regular session a "national budget." This national budget I.? not the regular budget of the federal government but a budget of the total national economy of private business plus state, local and federal governments. Now suppose the President's national budget message for i, coming year should show the prospective total gross national product at no billion dollars, made up of 121) bil- .lion dollars consumers 1 ' expenditures, 20 bllMo.n dollars business capital mvestni'ems, lo'blllion dollars state .and local govcrmn'en't'-'ctyibndllnrcs ,nnd 20 billion dollars fe'deiiil biiit- 1 get for war and u'nvy departments, :lcbt retirement and other govern- ncntal expenditures. .Tills 110 Billion dollar lolal would itlll be 30 billion dollars short of .he 200 billions necessary to provide the 00;mlillon jobs, The Presl- icut woultl therefore be required to submit a"pla.n for Incrcnslug Ihe gross .natioiml product 30 billion lollars' worth. He might propose that consumer expenditures foe raised 15 billion lollars a year by increasing mlrii- num wages'to C'O cciits nn hour; or hat business capital'investments be lo.: hin'lon dollars Iii,' •eorganlzlng and' hiodernlv.inB ra'il- roiids;: or that .tcdcval 'sovcrnirtenl outlays be increased by five billion dollars, three billions In the form of a'Missouri Valley Authority, two millions -in the form of federally financed 'housing development for 1 which the government eventually y.'ould be reimbursed, IT.WOlir.D.GUIDl- Ot'R ri8CAI..I'OUCY Whatever ihe President's proposals, .Ilils would be a budget for the national economy which would be transmitted lo Congress as a Ilscnl policy for the ensuing year. Congress might change it all around, pooh-jwohlng the Idea of 10 billions for the railroads and putting it all in public .works or another WPA. But Congftc's action would be ihe federal government's .decision on what (he .national economy should he to keep the citizenry employed and, If possible, happy, ft can be argued thai this is the old Iflen of the 1930's for a "compensatory economy" in which the federal government was supposed to borrow and spend 'whatever sums were necessary to make up for business depressions, It's a little more than that. This Isn't a,new economy that Is proposed, but a new politics, It pro- poses'to raise private" Investments to the highest possible levels, figuring things out In,advance to maintain an ever-normal economy. If a. proposal of this kind vi-ere made by the cxcciilivc department of the 'government it would probably be damned as "more New Deal planning," stale /socialism, or worse But as the idea originates in''Con- gress, It has to be given more consideration than a long-halicd braln- truslci's pipe dream' gets. .Wuridcrlich and W.
