COURJEn NEWS Economic Advisers Claim U. S. Must Get Rich Faster !!y C'lurke Israeli WASHINGTON—America is gct- tlns richer mid richer. Hut. still It isn't petting rlcli fast enough. If it doesn't get- rich faster, serious trouble lies ahead somewhere. That's the substance of the conclusions experts draw from Hie latest monthly report to Congress dy Hie President's Council of economic Advisers. Nearly all business Irutices liare been rising in rcccnl moiHhs, anil business projects look sood. So said the President, and so say Ills economists. Yet the nnlton Is nffrclcd with crcejiinij uncmiiloymcnt. if unein- ployincnl, keeps oj] rising iiirfeflil- iicly, any economist wl. agree that But the labor (orce keeps growing— Ihe body of persons working or seeking work. It totaled 62,305,000 in March 19M. Jt nas 63.021.000 In March of this year—a gain of 716.00 persons. Unemployment Increased from 3,167.000 In March 1MO to 4,123,000 In March of this year—n gain of 958.000. Those figures worry government economists. They, the ['resilient a d congress arc committed to the principle thai America's economic hope lies In full employment.

They amounted to {18.120,000.000 in 1919. The Council estimates that they will be only $16.030,000.000 this ye.n 1 . The annual rate dropped more than $2,000,000.000 between the fourth quarter of 1949 and the first quarter of this year, In Hie second hali oi this year Ihe rale will be only $15,140,000.000, says the Council. What can be done to expand production and bilnx about this ever- expanding economy, One measure, according lo a highly placed economist, might be lo Increase somehow Ihe volume of small business. r l)! K business is gelling bigger air the lime and small tnuineM proportionately smaller. Another answer might he, he said, lo reduce prices (chiefly by reducing (he percentage of profits) In order lo create greater consumer demand and stimulate greater production.

Provide repayment of government's investment, through sale of power at regulated rates to municipalities, R.E.A.'S and iu- ve.stor-owned electric companies for transmission and distribution to consumers; 3. Make Federal hydro power available lo all citizens without discrimination; and 4. Strengthen, rather than weaken the ability of power companies to render services. • The proposals amount to a redefinition and clarification of the IM.sition of the National Association of Electric Companies and call for closer cooperation between public bodies and industry in the interest of consumers and taxpayers. Many aspects of the government's power program arc assailed in the recommendations. Criticism was aimed at administrative interpretations of statues; operation of the so-called "preference cliu'.se.s" which favor one group of citizens over other groups; duplicating facilities and transmission linn-,; lack of sound accounting methods at Federal projects, and avoidance of (axes by cu.stoir.--rs of publicly- owned facilities which are paid by customers of privately-o'yned companies. boul the only healthy way to avoid unemployment Is lo i rovltie move iuirt more jobs.
