Or, the buck can be passed to Congress for not carrying gut all the provisions of Ire President's seven-point, program lo .keep the cost of living from splrultng upwards. Specifically, the President recommended more subsidies, limitation of, profits, limitation of salaries to $25,000 a year maximum, revision of the parity formula for agriculture and sill higher taxes, none of which Ihc Congress saw fit tuition the i>rnnllii|; of wage In- cicuses.

It reminds us that the enemy lays important plans by piecing together little scraps of offhand information. There is no such thing as unimportant gossip.
