But as time goes on President Truman preaches more and more optimism about the future of free enterprise and the future of this country. This shows up repeatedly In his speeches. It showed up twice this week. Here In Washington on Wednesday ho as talking about Ms "Point Four" for world recovery, his plan for helping backward areas develop He said: "If 'we can make a contribution in the know-how, and raise the standard of living Just Iwo per cent, in the re^t of the torld, our factories and our businesses never couM catch up with the demand that would be on tlicm. ' i ' "Just think of that. That's all we need to do. It Is no beyond the bounds of possibility. , There are resources in this great world that alone. never have been touched." The Thusrdany night, speaking In St. Paul, he had more to say— and more specifically about free enterprise: "We are concerned with expanding our economy and the opportunities of our people. We are concerned with Increasing our agricultural and Industrial production, and our standards of living. "We we have, In lact, o whole new world before us, the world of increased oportunlty and wider freedom that our new technology and Increasing abundance make possible . . . "We rrust rely, u we h«« always relied, upon (he spirit of initiative and free enterprise." Then he added something: "We know that it is necessary for th« government to follow policies that will make. It possible for Initiative and free enterprise to succeed/ With that statement he wac making ' It clear he doesn't th'tnk that all that's necessary for enUr- prLse ta succeed U Just to l«t it A completely free enterprise is one where the government never jiterferes and never helps. In that sense, enterprise In this country has almost never been completely free, since the early lariff laws were aimed at helping American enterprise by protecting it from foreign competition. As the year's passed the government stepped in in other ways: With Its. anti-trust laws against monoplies, 1 1 s interstate commerce laws and regulations, Its minimum wage laws to help Corkers, its help to farmers, and so i. The big argument In this country has always been and still Is: Just ho* much can the government slcp into American lite and business without destroying free enterprise? - President Truman, In his St. F»ul speech, s»ld there can't be real process unless the- "btrie- fUs of our production arc flldcly distributed among all citizens. had In mind:.

He didn't actually list them under those names, but all or them vere In his .speech and all have seen parl of his program, expressed over and over again in the past. The fact that he has met with opposition In on the points mentioned above—this las Congress controlled by his own Democrats—shows how wide Is thi difference in American thinking on what free enterprise Is and how free It should be, whether U in valves the enterprise of an in dividual or a corporation It ranges all the way from Ihosi who want no government regula tlon, of any kind, to those whrt agree that some federal con trols and aid are needed, and those likes President Truman who thin! the government should take mucl more active role In American .life . for, as he:expressed It, the "gcner al welfare." fonesboro Rent- Controls Lifted 3y Housing Chief JONESBORO, Ark., Nov. 5.—Rent ontrols in this city of nearly 15,000 were lifted late yesterday hy Pcd- ral Housing Expediter Tighe Woods n Washington. Coming unexpectedly, the action was explained by the expediter as stemming from findings that "the demand for rental housing has been reasonably met in rent controls are out." Most Joncsboro tenants and land' lords had expected Ihe controls to remain until next yerr. The action was taken by the (cd- eral agency.

The teams banged away at each other defensively during the next two periods and except for a tense moment In the second period when the Wildcats drove to the Blytheville one only to be held for four straight downs, the highly partisan crowd had very little to yell about. •, That second period drive' was one of the Wildcats two major splurges of the night and it was set up on a recovered Chick fumble.
