. MONDAY, FEB. 2, 1953 President Gives First State of Union Message End of Controls Also Recommended; Truman Policy Hit (Continued from Page 1) and Gen. Douglas MacArthu among others commended warmly. With soldierlike bluiitness th new President stated his view o ' h "TM et if " neulriuizi «s" mission This has meant, in effect tha the United States Navy was re quired lo serve as a defensive ar of Communist China " Truman Issued the order on Jun 27. 1950 two days after the star of frghUng , n Korea. He directe the Seventh Fleet to protect, sgalns Invasion and to assure th'?l the Na honnlists did not attack the main land. The explanation was Hint th order was designed to keep th Chinese Reds out of the Korea Since 1050, Eisenhower recalled the. Reds have entered the wa and, with Russian backing, h said, have • turned down ever peace overture from the Unite Nations. "Consequently.". E I s e n h o v, er said, "There'Is no'longer an logic or sense in a condition tha required the United Slates Navy t assume defensive responsibilltle on behalf of the Chinese Comnu nists. thus permitting those Com munlsls. with greater Impunity t j kill our soldiers and those of ou United Nations allies in Korea. "I am,- therefore, issuing instruc dons that the Seventh Fleet n longer be employed to shield Com munist China. This order implle no aggressive intent on our part Eisenhower disclosed anothe move in the Par Eastern conflict"immediate increased attention t the development of additional He public of Korea forces." This wa in line with his campaign deman that Korean troops replace otlie U. N. forces in the.Irani lines a soon as possible. He said hts foreign policy in general, will envision "all peace ful methods and devices — excep breaking faith with our'friends. Blasts Secret Meetings Then—in apparent reference t< the meetings Presidents Robsevel and Truman attended at Yalta Potsdam and elsewhere—the nev President declared: "We shall never acquiesce In thi enslavement of any people In orde to purchase fancied gains for our selves. "I shall aslc the Congress at a later date to join in an approprl nte resolution making clear tha this government recognizes ni kind of commitment contained ii secret undertakings of the pas with foreign governments which permit this kind of enslavement. 1 Turning to affairs at home, the Chief Executive outlined a Eerie, of projects already started by his administration: A new federal loyalty and secur Hy program, supervised by Ally Gen. Brownell, to protect the gov ernment from "false servants' nnd "to clear the atmosphere o that unreasoned suspicion that nc cepts rumor and gossip as substi tutes for evidence." -In anothei apparent dig at Ihe Truman regime. .Eisenhower said an admin I'.lslratton which leaves its policing to Congress is only asking for "dis iprder and confusion." ,i Studies to straighten out thi liomplexitles of the defense estab I'.shment, revamp the tax laws to ^ive small business a better break hd map legislation to replace the |r/n price support laws which ex- i'e at the end of 1954. He said the fsent 90 per cent of parity farm "gram will be enlo.rced falth- y and a new program draftee •educe "governmental Interfer in the farmers* affairs."

"Corrective action" to amend She Tuft-Hartley labor law. Eisenhower satd the Labor Department was making: some specific recommendations ' and he'd send them along later. He did stress Ihe .view that government's role In labor- maiingcmem relations should be mainly Ihat of mediator, and he salU the administration should avoid any hint of being "partial or punitive." 3. Amendment of the McCarran- Walier Immigration Act to remove what he called discrimination against some groups of aliens. 4. Extension of the Old Age and Survivors Insurance law "to cover millions of citizens who have been left out of the social security system." The President also called for federal help to schools In areas which have a "proved need and proved lacfc of local income " 5. Extension of the Reciprocal Trade Agreements Act. He called loo. for greater efforts by European countries to achieve economic unity. Elsenhower spoke with extreme gravity on the subject of finance. "It Is Important," he said,, "that all of us understand that this administration does not and cannot begin its task with a clean slnte. Much already has been written on the record, beyond our power quickly to erase or lo amend. This record includes our inherited burden of indebtedness and obligations and deficits." Already, he went on. the national debt stands at more than 265 billion dollars, with another 80 billions committed for future spending'. "The^ills for payment of nearly all the 80 billion dollars of obligations will be presented during the next'four years," Eisenhower said "These bills, added to the current costs of government we must meet, make a formidable burden." Wryly, the President Interjected: "Permit me Ihis one understatement: To meet and to correct this situation will not be easy. "Permit me this one assurance: Every "department head and I are determined lo do everything we can to resolve it." Balanced Budget Essential And he went on: "A balanced budget Is an essential first measure in checking further depreciation in the buying power of the dollar. This Is one of the critical steps to be taken to bring an end to planned inflation Our purpose is to manage the government's finances so as to help and not hinder each family in balancing its own budget. "Reduction of taxes will be justified only as we show we can succeed In bringing the budget under control. As the budget is balanced and inflation checked, the burden that today stifles initiative can and must be eased. "Until we can determine the extent (o which expenditures can be reduced, it would not be wise to reduce our revenues." He summed up what he described as "the grand labors" of his administration in these words: "Application of our influence in world affairs with such fortitude and such foresight that it will deter aggression and eventually secure peace: "Establishment of a national administration of such integrity and such efficiency that Its honor at home will ensure respect abroad ; "Encouragement of those incentives that inspire creative initiative in our economy, so that its productivity ma.y fortify freedom everywhere; and "Dedication io the well-being of all our citizens and to the attain BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)'

As for letting 'authority for wage- Policy control lapse April 30 Eisenhower said: 1'rovnl Unsatisfactory "They (the controls) have proved largely unsatisfactory or unworkable. They have not prevented inflation; they have not kept down the cost of living. "Dissatisfaction with them is wholly justified. I am convinced Hint now—as well ns Iti the long run—free and competitive prices will best serve Ihe interests of all the people, nml best meet the changing, growing needs of our economy." He predicted the end of the curbs "will result in individual price cbiinifc.s—some up and some down," but said ; 'a maximum of freedom in market prices as well as in collective bargaining Is characteristic of a truly free people." Elsenhower also recommended hat controls on materials and end products be ended June 30, except in case of critical materials needed for defense production. He also asked for extension of authority to establish defense priorities —lo-chaimel essential materials to defense programs.
