TUESDAY, DECEMBER 7,1954 Bl.YTHEVILLE (ARK.) L'OURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Treasury, Reserve Officials Face Solons; Explain Money Policies - WASHINGTON (AP) — Top Treasury and Federal Reserve Board officials meet with a congressional group today to explain administration money policies in the face of. charges they inflicted "very great damage" to the economy. Heading the list of witnesses were Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey and W. Randolph Burgess, his under secretary for monetary policy. They were called by the Subcommittee on Economic Stabilization of the Senate-House Committee on the Economic Report. . Hearings opened yesterday, with the sharpest criticism of Eisenhower administration credit and money policies coming from John D. Clark, onetime member of former President Truman's Council of Economic Advisers. Clark said "very great damage has been done" to the economy by "an unhappy experiment with repressive monetary policy." He contended the Eisenhower administration's money managers "set out to upset the business boom" and now "compliment themselves that they have done well in not bringing on a real depression." Professor Critical Another critical witness from a panel of businessmen and economists was Harvard Prof. Seymour E. Harris. He told the committee an increase in interesi . rates caused by Treasury and reserve board policies early, in .1953 ''contributed to the recession which followed." Prazar B. Wilde, president of Connecticut General Life Insurance Co., of Hartford, Conn., however, praised administration fiscal policies. He agreed with a previous Treasury and reserve board assessment of the situation that in 1952 and early 1953 the economy was in boom conditions calling for restraint of credit "If boom or bust was to be avoided or mitigated." The authorities "lived up to their responsibilities' 'and followed "sound policy" in money and credit control, he said. $10,000 Just To Say Hello HOLLYWOOD (If) — Actress Joan Crawford will say "hello" to guests at a cocktail party and get paid a reported $10,000 for doing it.

New German Army Won't Wear Jack Boot and Prussian Helmet By GEORGE BOULTWOOD BONN, Germany [it—The jack boot and Prussian steel helmet, old symbols of German aggression, won't be worn by the new West German army to be brought into the North Atlantic Alliance when when the Paris agreements are ratified. 'You'll have to look pretty close at the future German soldier to tell he is not an American. Only details like rank badges and maybe the color will show the difference, according to present plans of the Bonn Defense Ministry. The uniform now being tested follows generally the American pattern. That includes lace-up boots like an American paratrooper's and the U.S. type double steel helmet, now so familiar In Europe. Officials say the color of the uniform has not yet been decided. Model uniforms now being tried are khaki. But the old field gray of the Kaiser's army or olive green might be chosen. That depends on whether officials decide the German soldiers should have a distinctive color to give .them individuality among the NATO forces or whether they should look as much like their allies as possible. Color Undecided Officials calculate it will cost about 238 million dollars to oufit the 500,000 members of the future force. The uniform shown to the parliamentary security committee includes service dress, battle dress working overalls and a uniform for wear off duty. With the service dress, of loose blouse and ski pants, the German soldier will wear a Jaunty ski cap A peaked cap, designed in dashing ftalian style, will be worn with the "Eisenhower jacket" and slacks for off-duty dress. West German frontier guardsmen told the committee they preferred a peaked cap for off-duty wear as it was more attractive to the girls.
