P«g« A-2-- INDEPENDENT «*·* i*"** **« «· L.A.C. S A Y S: The Tariff Battle PEOPLE IN THE NEWS Killer of Millioriairc Freed From Prison Purely do we find as many elaborate brochures and documents dealing with a national issue as those we receive dealing with the lowering of tariffs. It Is a 'basic issue that affects the economy of the entire nation. The President is placing great pressure on Congress to grant him the power to lower tariffs on products that compete with those made in our own factories. * * ft The arguments we have read are much more numerous in favor of such a program than those in opposition. There is support from large business organizations and labor unions. It seems apparent we must reduce or eliminate most of our tariffs on imports -- if we are to maintain or increase our exports. The National Council of American Importers is naturally interested in importing more goods. The council claims that imports of many products provide some 3 million jobs in this country. These arc for transport workers, clerks in stores and wholesale houses. The council also claims that 70 per cent of our imports are in raw materials and products that are not competitive to our own factories. ; * * ft ; Our exports arc now about $20 billion a year, compared with about $15 billion for our imports. Unless we buy the goods of other nations they cannot buy from us. It is argued that the European Common Market nations plus those that are expected to join that group, plus the U. S. provide SO per cent of most of the goods involved in world trade. It is therefore logical-- they say-- that these nations should wipe out tariffs among themselves and therefore have free trade. It is admitted some of our industries would suffer from the competition from the low-labor-cost nations. Cut this loss would be minor to what we will lose if we keep high tariff rates and are excluded from the low-tariff-rate areas expected to prevail in the common-market countries. ft ft ft It all sounds very logical based on what we now sell and buy. Out it is apparent Congress is not ready to give the President the broad powers he asks for. There is a feeling that all these figures and philosophies may not work out as easily as they are presented. The danger of flooding our markets with many goods in competition with our major productions is a reason for real concern. For this reason, Congress may insist upon the right to veto any individual tariff cuts the President negotiates. There is little doubt that there must be tariff cuts on our imports if we are to get tariff cuts on goods we sell to the common market. This can be accomplished only by negotiations between our government nnd the common market. The President must have wide powers to carry on such negotiations. The world's economy has been greatly changed in the past five years of the successful growth of the common market. Their dropping of tariff barriers among themselves has made these nations a virtual United States of Europe. It is a new world-trade problem we can meet only with a change in our past traditional policies. Hut it is one Congress must be careful not to grant too much power for until there is some evidence of how that power will be used.-- LA.C. tm Wtft lirvketl Connie Nicholas walked through the big electronic gate at the Indiana Women's Prison Wednesday a free woman and burst Into tears as she did frequently during her trial for killing her millionaire lover. Mrs. Nicholas, 47, had served the minimum two- year senence on a man- · slaughter conviction for the fatal shooting in 1953 of Forrest Teel, 54-year-old vice president of Ell Lilly -Co. Connie said Teel spurned her for a younger woman after a 15-year illicit love affair. With her head bowed. Connie walked briskly from her prison cottage to the gate. An official pushed a button and the gate opened. As Connie walked down a sidewalk to the administration building, tears filled her eyes. Seeing newsmen she recognized from the trial, she raised her head for the only time, wiped away the tears and said: "It looks like old home week, doesn't it?" Those were the only words spoken by the petite brunette. After about two minutes inside the building, she walked out and stepped quickly into a car with her sister and brother-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Blank- cnship of nearby New Whitcland, in whose home she'll live until she decides about her future. . Later, while relaxing at the Blankenship home, Mrs. Nicholas talked to newsmen by telephone. "I'm still excited," she said, "excited and happy." Connie has said she hopes to return to work as a secretary, probably in Indianapolis. She will have to report regularly to a parole officer for one year.
