(UP)— President Roosevelt said today the government will seek to shift recovery and relief expenditures from durable goods industries to consumers goods industries in an effort to spread national income more evenly and hall rising jjrices in steel, copper and other heavy in- dustrles. Instead of spending huge sums on massive construction projects. Mr. I Roosevelt said the emphasis would he placed on expenditures in light "consumers' goods industries, where the bulk of the money goes inlo wages. The changed policy, Mr. Roosevelt made plain, means an end of the tvpe of monumental -work especially encouraged by th; Public Works Adminlsration. Trices KIsIng Too Fast The compelling reason for the changs. said the president, is the fact that heavy industry activity has outstripped that of light in", dustry. This phenomenon, he de- 'clared, In the past, has resulted in economic depressions because in this situation prices rise faster than the income of consumers who must purchase goods. The new administration policy the president saltl, should aid in increasing the income of citizens at the bottom of the economic lad- tier, enable light industries to catch up with the gains of heavy industries, and in general bring about n mere equitable distribution of the national, income.
