MONDAY, JUNE 8, 1953 Rl.YTI1EVn.LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE IflNl Tfct World Today— Eisenhower Asb Shakeup Of Economic Advisory Council By JAMES MAKLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — The title itself — Council of Economic Advisers to the President — sounds like Operation Icebox. It raises a vision of man so aloof from ordinary feelings that they no longer converse, but exchange ideas in the frigid language of arithmetic: 'plus and minus. But the original three-man council under former President Truman had the usual human difficulties: differences in opinions and tactics. And the public knew about the differ- •V.ences, which is more than it may be able to learn about the: kind of council President Eisen- "hower lias in mind. Congress created the council In:on tbo recommendations of the be avoided by amicable agreement 1946. giving the three men a full- board too. Since the thinking of the council time job of watching the economy and advising the'Presidont on policies for keeping the country prosperous. The act. establishing the -council said it should have a chairman and vice chairman. fl lThe first chairman was Dr. Edwin G. Nourse, who described himself as a "liberal" with both feet .on the ground. Vice chairman was Leon J. Keyserling, who came into the government with the Roosevelt New Deal, The third man was John D. Clark. All were appointed by Truman. When they sent their recommendations to the President, and disagreed, they could say so. This was a public document. And they disagreed in more ways than one. Keyserling, for instance, thought the council members should testify before congressional committees in support of Truman programs. Nourse thought the council should stay clear of such entanglements. House Resigns Nourse resigned in 1949 and Keyserling headed the council until the end of the Truman administration. It may have been due to the confusion of settling down in a new Job but when Eisenhower first took over he seemed all for getting rid of the council. He sacked its professional staff. Congress acted more than willing to.go along by cutting off money for the council. Eisenhower picked Dr. Arthur P. Burns, former Columbia University professor of economics, to be his economic adviser. Eisenhower then told Congress he wanted to revive the three-man council, with all new members, of course. Burns seems the likely man for chairman. But Eisenhower said he wants no vice chairman. He said he wants .the chairman to report to the President. Does this mean, the other two council members can't even sign the report or express publicly any differences of view? Inside the administration it was said this Is a question to be answered later, A rule of public silence on the oilier two council members might h"ve the effect of turning the council into one chairman with two assistants under his thumb. This would be the reverse of what j Nourse had. There is no doubt Eisenhower wants the chairman to be boss. Wants Two Groups fi fact, he gave the chairman two hats because, actually, it seems, Eisenhower wants not one . but two groups of economic nd- , risers. For, in the same message to : Congress about his plans for the . council, he said he also wants this: An advisory board on economic growth and stability, made up of the heads of several government departments and agencies, or their representatives; And the President announced that the, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers also .will be chairman of the advisory board. The President at the same time outlined a powerful role for this dual chairman: He would not only report to the President on the recommendations of the council but might not always coincide with the thinking of the board, the chairman might sometimes find himself among all concerned. The idea of the board really formalizes what was done without title by the old council whose members consulted regularly, in in a dilemma. But inside the ad- making up their recommendations, ministration it was hopefully sug- j with the heads of the various ftgen- gesCed this kind of problem could i cies dealing in economic problems.
