PACK TWO BLYTHEVIU,B (ARK.) COURIER NEW! TUESDAY, JULY 25, 1956 TlM H«twn T*4ay: Control Orcr Credit— Truman Asks Old Powers; Here's What He Would Get By JAMES MAMXJW * WASHINGTON, July 25. (/Pi— If Congrtw itvt» the President the kind of power he islted for, und it probably will, then he can: 1. Control the amount of credit you get when you w«nt to buy things on time, like autos, refrigerators, household appliances. 2. Control the amount of lime you'll get for paying off those things you buy on time. 3. Even control real eslale deals —like buying a home—by saying how big a down payment you must make. Except for control over real estate, the controls listed above would not be new. Congress gave t h e President the snme klnci of power In World War II anrt after. Warlime-ind-Afltr Power That .wartime- slid- after power was contained In a regulation laic! down by the government, called "Regulation W." Us purpose was to control credit 01 buylng-on-llnw. For example: under regulation W the government could compel people to pay up In full within 24 months or less on all hinds of credit: to make a one-third down payment CHI automobiles; to make a 10 per cent down-payment, at least, on all types of home appliances bought on time. The power of the government to set such regulations on credit buy- inn ended In June. 1949. when Congress., instead of renewing the President's power to use Regulation W. let It die. Trum»i) Seeks Old Power So, In effect, he Is asking Congress to give him back that power now. To speed up Congressional action on this, a couple of top Democrats In Congress offered bills last week. This was after the President sent his message to Congress, explaining the crisis In Korea and the Immediate need for this country to rearm. It's up to Congress to rteclde. The purpose behind all this can be simply stated: to make It touch- er for people to buy things. And this 1* why: As the government buys up m^re stuff for defense — like steel for tanks—there's less left for civilian goods, for example: less sleel for autos and refrleera tors. People With Mnncj But so long as people have a lot of money in their pockets, as they have now, they'll scramble around to buy what they can. ThU means, of course, that they'll compete against one another for scarce, or relatively scarce,-goods. The more they compete for the scarce stuff, the higher the prices go. Meaning: Inflation. The worse the Inflation, the more the damage to the whole economy and the less your dollar will buy. Some people, with cash on'hand, buy outright. Others, with less cash, buy on time. But—the I«H time you have tor paying up In full and the larger the down payment you must make, the less apt you are to go out heller- skelter and buy anvthlns you want. Brake on Inflation So this control on credit buying would be a brake on Inflation. Therell b« another brake. That's increased taxes. Congress hasn't reached the point of boosting taxes yet. It seems sure to do so. That will drain away a lot of money people might have spent for •caret goods. Taxes, though, would serve a double purpose: to heln pay for military expenses and halt Inflation a bit. (Price control anct rationing would be still another brake but the President doesn't think It's necessary lo put those controls In yet.) As for the President's request 'o control real estate deals: The government^-where It helps out home-buyers now through in- surin? or guaranteeing a loan they get from banks—already hart some controls over real estate deals, but U.S. lyes McMath-Loney Battle — Southern Primary Slate: By The Assoctaled Press Democrats In four Southern states sre holding primaries today, with national interest centered primarily on a senatorial race In Oklahoma. There, Senator Elmer Thomas, chnlrninn ol the Senate Acrlcul- ture Committee and a'veteran of the Washington scene since 1927, is trying to hold of! the bid of Rep. Mike Monroney, who lias been In the U. S. House 12 years. Monroney led Thomas in the senatorial primary July 4 but lacked a clear majority because the totnl vole was split by other candidates then In the field. This time It Is strictly Monroney-vs.-Thomas, Monronfy Campaign Monroney has campaigned in the second go-.ii'oimd with the argument that Thomas, as chnlrman of the Semite Appropriations Subcommittee handling military appropriations, is partly responsible fov the plight of U.S. forces in Korea. Thomas has challenged Munroncy's stand on fnrm legislation, a matter of much concern In Oklahoma. The other states, In brief: AKKAN'KAS—There is a national angle In the race for the nomination for governor, between Gov. Slct McMnth and former Oov. Ben Laney.

Hern Is Orris Lee Story's witnessed statement: "Last year I was jvist another nin-of-lhe-rnill flywciglit fighter. My coach couldn't put his finger on just what my trouble was. My best punch \vns a hard right cross, but try as I would it was falling inches short of my opponent. "Also the last rounds of a fight usually found me completely \vashcd out. my arms feeling like lead. Then last October 1 had a talk vith an Arkansas fighter lo whom I had dropped a decision, f told him I couldn't l«S him with my right because of a painful stiffness across my shoulders that caused me to pull up short of my full rcarti. He said it was probably an aching due to neuritis and he recommended HADACOL. I tried it with a lot of doubt in my mlnrf. But Ihere is no doubt today. Today I hold a stale box- Ing title, I exchanged that neuritis pain and 'all-gone' feeling for pep, stamlnn and a whnlc oi a swat—thanks to HADACOl. ' T:ike IIAOACOI. KvrrywlM-rp Orris Story continues, "If I leave town even for 24 hours to take part In a tournament, I pack my bottle of HADACOL along with my trunks, shoes, hand wraps and mouthpiece. I can't recommend HADACOL too strongly to ivtMelcs—or punching until the final bell," Re KiUr To Ymirwlf What HADACOL did and Is doing for this great young boxer— It should do for you If you are weak, nervous, run-down—hare neuritis palna or .itomnch dlji- Imbances due to l»ck of Vitamins B,, Bj, Iron and Niacin.
