Wants 1'nblii' Iivfurnicil Other phases of the economic outlook as seen by the President: Agriculture: bad wcnlhcr, cxteu- siy floods and unexpectedly urgent foreign demand have caused pressure for higher food prices. The public should be iriven up-to-rkuo information on food supplies by the. government, growers and pro- ces.soij ID prevent speculation 'hoarding and unnecessary buying. Despite prospects : for a .short corn crop, "wo may st.ill obtain a total agricultural output as larye as year." Foreign Aid: Heavy exports to cssist foreign nations should not be regarded or used as n device for supporting maximum production and employment «t home. "The immediate and sole objective of our foreign aid programs should be to restore a vigorous, stable and pe.ireful world economy under which ether countries will bo able lo pay their way." Housing: Construction lags far behind the real needs of the peo-ja less prosperous period. pie for homes, and will be a big factor in sustaining maximum eni-jj ployment once thc "tempDrMry .j props" under ,ihe economy begin j to weaken.
