The CED also urges a number of fiscal reforms that, will give both tlie Administration and Congress better control over expenditures. It fears savings in one sjwt may be wiped out by excessive spending in another. Certainly it is plain that responsible men in both major parties believe the time is passing when the United States can blithely dip into its spacious till without thought of tomorrow.

Groups in and out of Congress are wondering just how deep the United States can dig into its sock without endangering its own and the world's future. Since the end of World War II, this country has served virtually as storehouse and treasury for democracy every: where. Now it is being asked to act in peacetime—as it did in war—as the arsenal of democracy,' On top jof these unusual burdens, the enactment of new social legislation covering health, security and education is sought by President Truman. The worry felt in Congress over the increasing drain on the nation's resources is expressed in a move planned by Senator Ruueil of Georgia and other Democratic members of the Senate Appropriations Committee. Russell and his committee colleagues want to trim about 13,000,000,000 off federal runds for the year starting July 1. This plan may give the economy drive the big spark it has lacked up to • now. Heretofore, efforts by .Republicans and some Democrats to curtail government spending have had slender success. Republican senators did manage to bottle up one appropriations bill, but the final round is yet to be fought on that measure. Russell says he and his supporters won't go along with the GOP in its announced intention to snip 5 per cent from each money bill as it comes up. He thinks a better approach will be to wait until most of the appropriations bills are approved and then, when the extent of spending and the need for economy are clear, to ot'ler a proposal ordering all government agencies to save enough to bring outlays down $3,000,V 000,000. ^& This idea is unusual, but it might ^k catch on if all efforts to trim individual Vybills fail in the next two munUis. Perhaps action on the appropriations for European recovery will be the key. Many senators have indicated a desire to see these funds pared, and slvouU they not.achieve a substantial reduction in that field they may be ripe recruits for the Russell plan. Senator'Russell got some unexpected support for his program from two separate quarters. A joint congressional committee on taxation estimated that the probable federal deficit for the coming fiscal year would be $2,900,000,000, And the Committee for Economic Development, an agency backed by private business, called for spending cuts of at least $2,100,000,000 to avoid "damaging . consequences" to the economy. The CED says failure to cut expenditures by.ft substantial amount will leave Cpngnss with no sensible alterna- tm bat to r*i»« Ux«i, President'Tru- Vagueness Is the besetting weakness of the Regulation of Lobbying Act, u first reports ol expenditures tiled under it are ihowing. Not only li the lew vague about who li to eglster, It is vague about what those who reg- ster are to do. Expense accounts are now coming In to 1*11 low much money was spent, but they do not tell how it was spent, and the latter is what needs to be known. Are lobbyists giving expensive favon to members of Congress to curry votes? In how many ways is the lobbyist trying to win Congressmen and influence legislation? Whatever the facts are, they are concealed in such expense account Items as "for public relations," "lor legislative and government relations," tor labor relations," etc. Everyone already knew the lobbyist had those relations. Public interest U in finding out precisely what those relations consist of. The lobbying regulation act should be amended to define lobbyists more clearly and to require specified and specific items to be reported on in expense accounts. Only then can the Government have the fact* that will enable It to keep lobbying within proper bounds. LOUTS POST-DISPATCH. PETER EDSONS Washington News Notebook Trial Run for Brannan Farm Program Would Convert Swine Into Guinea Pigs By Peter Edson NBA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON (NBA)—The new Brannan farm plan may get a trial un on pigs. Sen. Elmer Thomas of Oklahoma and Congressman Harold 3ooley of North Carolina, chairmen of Senate and House Agricul- ire Committees, have introduced a bill to make this experiment. The legal lingo of the bill Isn't much help In understanding how hings would worlc under today's plan and the Brannan plan. But price and it can hardly give it away, j 415. 5O a hundredweight, or experts say the -situations spell out about like this: would The Eyes of the World Freedom cannot exist without law. On the other hand, there must be some experience of freedom In order to frame the sort of laws which can help to safeguard freedom. This paradox is being ruefully discovered by those who are working for greater freedom of information through a United Nations agreement. For. not only the Soviet bloc but other nations which have no long tradition oj freedom of the press are threatening to make the convention on this subject, as It finally emerges from the UN Assembly, a bill of restraints more than a bill of freedoms. There have been victories for the democratic point of view during the fight over the three draft conventions in committee. But before the final agreement is adopted the tendency of governments to restrain may take precedence over the need of peoples for unhampered freedom ol Information. Even if the convention itself is satisfactory In Its final form, the freedoms it alms at will not be automatically ensured by its adoption. Law. to be effective, requires legally constituted power to enforce It as well as Informed public opinion to support It. The continuing straggle of newspapermen sll over the world to get freer access to news is likely to be the single greatest force operating to educate both governments and peoples toward this end. Those who have run underground newspapers in occupied countries, for Instance, understand the problem of freedom and censorship u do few of the diplomats now framing Inler- nallonal law on the subject. Yet the very process of framing law can be educational also. The press of the world Is the eyes of the world. We live in the sort of world that needs to Keep Its eyes wide open. CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR. Live hogs today are selling at around $17.50 a hundredweight. A y«»r ago the price was S31.00. With today's big pig supply a"(i favorable corn prices, no great gilt of prophecy Is remilred to see that the price of hogs may drop further. Trouble Seen in Fall Market When the fall pig rush to marke begins, trouble may be expected Under the present law, the govern ment, will have to go into the mar kel. and buy pit's to keep the pric from fallinB below S1G.50 a him drcdwoifhl, which is DO per cent of parity. To do so would only drive hoj prices down further and make the government's problem worse. Evcn- ually the pork would have to be estroyed. converted into protein anknge feed for hogs, or made into ertilizer or soap. For all this operation .the government would have to operate with a ticker tape in one hand and a checkbook in the other, entering the market whenever the price sagged below $16.60 a hundredweight. How much this would cost cant >e predicted accurately. But for tlie sake of a guess, assume total U. -S. hog marketings of 20.COO.OOO 000 pounds this year, live weight. Then assume that the government would Vmve to buy l.OCO.000.000 pounds to support the market. At $16.50 a hundrcdwei"ht , the government would buy $165.000,030 worth of live hogs. If " the government bought dressed pork, the cost would be S230.000.000, according to Secretary J'roxperfs Bri^lilrr Under I!ramian l'l;in i!j is the prospect, which laces The government could buy live hogs, but that isn't practical. If it buys hogs, it would have to buy them on tho farms, then buy feed and pay the farmers to feed them. So the government would have to buv dressed pork and find cold stor- hundred below the present 90 per cent o! parity support level. Under the Brannan plan, the government would, have to pay the farmers the difference between the market leVel of $15.50 and the "income support standard price." This is the calculated price based on the average price over the past 10 years, stated in terms of today's devaluated dollar. This figures out lo about $17.50. In other words, the government would have to pay the farmers the difference between »n.60 and $15.50. or »2 a hundred for whatever pigs they sold at the $15.50 price. On 2,000,030,000 pounds live- weight, or 10 per cent of the year's pig crop .the cost to the government would be $40,000,000. On 10,000,003,000 pounds, or half the crop, the cost would be $200.000,000. Both figures are less than the cost for 1.000,000,000 pounds under the present law. The consumer would be ahead too. Under the present law, tile ROV- crninent creates an artificial scarc- M.v by withdrawing some of the sup the market. This keeps this serious blow, at least lo some extent. During the past few years physicians generally have realized that the outlook for those who recover from a mild attack is much better than was formerly believed. Coronary thrombosis really began to be recognized only In 1912; for many years the diagnosis was not made except or the most serious cases. Now doctors diagnose milder cases and as a result many patients who have had one or more attacks of coronary thrombosis are known to have survived for a great many ears. Indeed many of those who have had the milder attacks, especially In their earlier years, have been able to resume full, or nearly full, activity, both in their occupations and even physical exertion. Note: Dr. Jordan Is unable to answer individual questions from readers. However, each day he will answer one of the most frequently asked questions in his column. QUESTION: I am afflicted with passing blood In my urine and have allied supervision until complete T moral and economic rehabilitation had been achieved. Vishinsky Offers "Plan" When Vishinsky was called on yesterday to state Russia's position he accused the Western powers of departing from the principles laid down in the allied pact made at Potsdam just after the end of thn European fighting. He called for restoration of four-poxver control throughout Germany, as laid down in Potsdam, and for establishment of a German State Council with economic and administrative func- ,ions. This would mean a return to Ihe original controls on Germany and would do away with the newly created German republic. It would be a complete reversal ot much that the Western allies have been working for. Then Vishinsky hit on another controversial issue—the disposition of the great industrial Ruhr, which is the heart of German economy.
