Brakes Slip on Inflation Prices to Zoom When Cash Surplus Gone Waahinrian. (#*>—A steadily increasing inflation—with at least 1 break on high prices due to loosen soon—was reported Wednesday by a congressional economic committee. The monthly "economic indicators" issued by the senate-house committee on the economic report showed an increase in income for Americans but added that it "hardly kept pace with the rise in consumers' prices." What's more, |he July report said, one of the big anchors on inflation—a large cash surplus in the treasury—soon will be lost. The treasury took in from the public, in the 6 months ended June 30, a whopping $7,600,000,000 more than it paid out. These are cash transactions, not the conventional bookkeeping budget figures. But the next 6 months, the committee warned, will bring a "close balance" between government income and outgo. The month of June saw economic records topple on all sides.

HOLSUM zoomed to new peaks, and postwar highs were hit by. profits, production and national income. The report was co'mpiled by President Truman's board of economic advisors from figures submitted by government agencies. The council headed by Dr. Edwin G. Nourse, will submit a midyear economic report to the president later this month based on many of the same figuresi With prices and inflation control already top presidential campaign issues, the forthcoming report may be a major source of political controversy.

Graversen was brought here from Reno, Nev., where Federal Bureau of Investigation agents arrested him. He was accused specifically of taking $25,271 from Mrs. Vendlar Quist Payne, of Berkeley, Cal., a former airline nurse, and $17,700 from Miss Ruth E. Martin of Manhattan. Federal authorities said Graversen persuaded Mrs. Payne he needed the money to pay expenses involved in claiming a large estate awaiting him in Denmark, and obtained the money from Miss Martin by promising to marry her. Traveling around the country, Graversen would write to the 2 women and ask them for various amounts, federal authorities said. He bought 2 automobiles and gave one to a woman friend, iden- tified by federal agents as Marguerite Topper of Los Angeles. The other automobile he ruined in a traffic accident with his 2nd wife, identified as Eleanor Orbeck, who now is living with relatives in Omaha, Nebr. His trial was set for Aug. 13.
