Legislative Session May Prove Most Rugged in State's History * ' By ADOLPH JOHNSON Veteran members o! th« M tola Legislature agree that the 90- Aey session opening next week may be one of the most difficult In the state's history. They are thinking of the enormity of the problems facing them —education, welfare, reapportlon- ment, conservation, highways, taxes and the overriding task of finding the money to pay the bills. But they are also thinking of the political problem. "This involves a tightening of lines in the Senate and possible splits In both conservative and liberal groups in the House. Battles Seem Certain As has been the case the last two sessions conservatives, who call themselves independents, will Monday, Dec. 29, 1958 control the Senate and liberals have A majority in the House. The division In the Senate is 43 conservatives to 24 liberals. That's an increase of five for the liberals, who have added to their number such experienced legislator* as Karl Grittner of St. Paul, Vladimir Shipka of Grand Rapids and Herman Kording of Minneapolis. All were leaders in the House liberal group. Despite the liberal gains and the loss of several conservative veterans through defeat and retirement, the conservatives demonstrated at this summer's special session that they could operate as a cohesive and determined unit. Liberals Strong This could make for rough going, especially late in the session, when AUSTIN (Minn.) HERALD- 3 ACTING CATTY — Striking a menacing pose, French ballerina Collerte Marchand puts feeling into her role as a ferocious "leopard woman." She has returned to the Paris stage after a long absence to appear in a ballet called "Cruel Island." GOOD YEAR AHEAD? it becomi* necessary to compromise with the liberal House. At the same time, liberals with their increased strength will be in a position to block action In the late stages. The conservatives are two votes short df the two-thlrd/i necessary to give t bill special consideration. Liberals in the House have about the same numerical strength, 71* 80 as they had two years fig*. But it is feared that the hot fight for the speakership. may have left scars that may split the liberals on some issues. Rep. Ed Chllgren of Littlefork, who will be serving his 17th term, Was chosen for the speakership by the liberal caucus, defeating Rep. Fred Cina of Aurora, majority leader the last two sessions, Some Leaders Missing Liberals also are expected to feel the loss of members who graduated to the Senate and of such men as Rep. A. I. Johnson, speaker the last two sessions, and Rep. Joe Karth of St. Paul. Johnson quit to make an unsuccessful try for Congress and Karth won a seat in Congress. A division which may make it difficult for them to take concerted action also is apparent in the House conservative group. Conservatives chose Rep. Lloyd Duxbury of Caledonia to replace Rep. Aubrey Dirlam of Redwood Falls as their leader. In the 1957 session Dirlam shared the duties with Odin Langen, who was elected to Congress in November. Duxbury is regarded as a representative of the most conservative wing -of his group. Dirlam, regarded as a moderate, ran third in the contest for the conservative leadership post. A New Leader The Senate conservative majority group also will have a new leader. Sen. John Zwach of Walnut Grove was chosen to succeed the late Sen. Archie Miller of Hopkins as rules chairman. Zwach, who served as acting majority leader near the end of the 1957 session when Sen. Miller was ill, has been a leader in a move to streamline the Senate committee setup. Sen. Harold Schultz of St. Paul has been renamed as leader of the Senate liberals. See What Experts Forecast; Then Wait to Compare Result By SAM DAWSON AP Business Newi Analyst NEW YORK (AP) - With the season for predictions at its peak let's take a look today at what some of the experts think 1959 has in store for us. Later on, perhaps, it might be fun to see how close they come to the mark in their economic penny-pitching. One of the leaders in the expert business, the magazine Business Week, looks for a good year. About to add push to the recovery already under way, it says, will be inventory accumulation by industries which were trimming stocks in 1958. Another force will be increased home building over the next few months. Cars Must Sell But if 1959 is to be better than just good, the magazine says, people will have to buy more autos. And on that point it declines to guess. It says consumers should have five billion dollars more at hand in 1959 for buying durables — autos, household appliances and the like. If they spend it, the business year is made. They'll be able to borrow if they like, S. Clark Beise, president of the Bank of America, the nation's largest, says. The C*alifornian says credit resources will be adequate for business and industry, for many more new homes, and for purchases of autos and appliances. IS in • Huddle The National Industrial Conference Board has had 15 economists in a huddle. They agree that 1959 is unlikely to see much of a drop in unemployment and expect four million to be out of work next June. They look for price stability in most lines, and for little increase in business spending on new plant and equipment. But they think the gross national product — total dollar volume of the nation's output of goods and services — will rise from its present annual rate of 450 billion dollars to between 470 and 480 billion by the end of 1959. Restrained Optimism Stanley C. Hope, president of the National Assn. of Manufacturers, calls himself a restrained optimist about the 1959 business outlook. He predicts steady, if unsensational, growth in total personal income, in business investment in plant and equipment, and in industrial output. Ralph A. Bing, vice president and economist of the Commonwealth Investment Co., San Francisco, thinks the recovery has up enough steam to keep rolling well j into 1959. But he looks for a grad- i&^>;» c ual slowdown in the recovery rate by the middle of the year. Dr. Gabriel Hauge, chairman of the finance committee of Manufacturers Trust Co., New York, and former special assistant for economic affairs to President Eisenhower, looks on 1959 with some concern. He says federal spending is "an impulse center for inflation with so large a fraction of so large a federal budget focussed on particular segments of our economic base." And he also thinks we "sorely need more light on the wage-cost-price-profit sequence.'' Another Worry Another worry, in a special field, is expressed by William F. Crawford, vice president of Rockwell Manufacturing Co. He sees' tougher competition in 1959 between American and foreign metal j goods producers because American wages are rising faster than are European, while foreign productivity is rising faster than American. But Donald M. White, executive secretary of the Aluminum Assn., says there is general optimism in that industry over chances of increased output and sales in 1959. Copper Future Bright And T. E. Veltfort, managing director of Copper & Brass Research Assn., says "copper's future is as bright as the metal itself." As for steel, Max D. Howell, executive vice president of the American Iron & Steel Institute, is out on the limb with fairly precise figures. He says 1959's output will be 100 to 110 million tons, compared with this year's 85 million, and with 1955's record 117 million tons.
