PAGE TWO BLITHEYILLB (ARK.y COTOIBS KEWB WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 12, 1958 Ike's Trade Gets Good Reception Better Support From Demos Than From GOP By JAMES MARI.OW Awoclatod Pre« New* Analyat WASHINGTON (A P..) — President Eisenhower's foreign trade program seems headed for better treatment by the Democrats, who run Congress this year, than it got from his fellow Republicans who controlled Congress in 1954. £iHnhower'c message to Congress this week, asking new Authority to cut tariffs, revives an ancient fight with some new twists. Tariffs protect American producers from the competition of foreign imports which might otherwise undersell them in this country. Traditionally, Democrats have been for low tariffs, Republicans for high ones. There Js divided opinion among American _ businessmen whether tariffs in general should be reduced, kept where they are, or boosted. Eisenhower wants ,to increase foreign trade; tariffs restrict It. There Is now the bugaboo of Russia seeking trade, which is one device for winning away American friends, with foreign countries which will certainly trade where they can to keep alive. Colled "Moderate" Just how much of Eisenhower's program will get through Congress —and Just how effective it will be in increasing trade if it does get through—is something for the future to disclose. He says he offers a "moderate" program. Just as the depression was getting started in 1930, the Republican-run Congress passed the Smdot ,-Hawley Tariff Act. President 'Hoover, over the protests of 1,000 economists, signed it. It created the highest tariffs In American history. It was the peak of American protectionism. Within two years X foreign countries retaliated by biking their tariffs against goods Americans tried to sell them. In the depths of the depression, when the Roosevelt administration took over, Secretary of State Cordell Hull thought a revival of world trade was one way out. Under Hull's prodding the Derno- eratlc-run Congress in 3934 passed the Reciprocal Trade Agreements Act under which the President could reduce tariffs on certain goods from other countries provided they reciprocated by reducing their tariffs on American goods. That was 20 years ago and Congress has kept the act alive, renewing It sometimes for three years at a stretch, sometimes for only one year. The last time it was renewed was in 1954, for one year. It's due to end in June. Every time It was renewed there was grumbling or opposition from those who complained American producers were suffering because of it. When Eisenhower took over In 1953, with a Republican Congress, he asked merely for the act to be renewed for one year so he would have time to study the problem of foreign trade. Commission Report To help him he appointed in 1953 a 17 • man commission which included members of Congress. Its SUDD'NIY YOU SEEM TO Begin again with a brand new skin! STARR GAZING By BETTVE NELLE STARR Courier News Staff Corretpondeoi On this day, 1803, the General Education Board was incorporated. John D. Rockefeller supplied the funds' ( a n told more than $50 million) for this board to promote education In the United States regardless of race, color or creed. On this day, 1901, three-cent carfare went into effect at Cleveland, o. I .wonder If it has increased to 15c as it has done in Memphis? On January 13, 1836. Stephen Collins Foster died. On 'January 14. 1184, peace with England was ratified. To cap it all, the first railroad honeymoon trip was taken on January 15. 1831. It was part of the wedding journey of Mr. and Mrs. Henry L. Pierson, of Ramapo, N. Y., while in Charleston, S. C., they traveled the six miles of the South Carolina Railroad then in operation. Remember when men wore celluloid collars? Them were the good old days, so they say. chairman was Clarence B. Randall, chairman of the board of the Inland Steel Corp. The commission reported to Eisenhower Jan. 23, 1954, In general it recommended extension of the act plus congressional agreement for the President to reduce tariffs further. Some of the Republicans on the commission balked: Sen. MJIlikin of Coforado, Rep. Reed of New York, Rep. Simpson of Pennsylvania. Republican opposition in Congress stood firm. On March 30, 1954, Eisenhower sent a special message to Congress following the line of the Randall commission recommendations. But on May 20, under Republican resistance, he said he was willing to accept a one-year extension of the act without further authority to cut tariffs. That was what he got. On Monday Elsenhower sen another special message to Congress, asking for a three,-year extension. Since much of the President's present power to cut tariffs to 50 per cent of what they were in 1945 has been exhausted, Eisenhower asked permission to cut another 15 per cent for the next three years, at the rate of 5 per cent a year. He promised there n-ouJd be "no sudden or radical tariff reductions." 406 W. Main Before my time, so I wouldn't :now. The product developed as a substitute lor ivory in billiard balls, so you can see why celluloid collars' popularity was short-lived. Imagine the neck-cricks! It has been said that the first half of our lives is ruined by our parents and the second half by our children. What about the grandchildren? Definition for a bachelor: "One who enjoys the chase, but does not eat the game." Beauty Is the first present nature gives to women, and the first it takes away. Business is like oil. It won't mix with anything but business. The Hungarians have a proverb that says: "The wife of a careless man is almost a widow." Some folks, like small boats, should stay close to the shore. The defects in a preacher are discovered sooner than in any other profession. I have never envied a clergyman and Worse than that, his wife. If she tries to half-way keep in style. she iB sometimes criticized and if she blossoms out in an out-moded outfit, heaven forbid! Those two are really on the spot and if I were either, I'd feel like I. was being auditioned every time 1 opened my mouth. I just wonder how they feel! Probably likewise. Dave Garaway sure looks self- conscious in those Bermuda shorts and I imagine he Is. Nell Owyn was just an orange- seller at the Theater Royal in London unitl she became the (or one) mistress of Charles II. She then became an actress and by jove. a jolly good one at that even though she was only 15 years old when she made her first appearance as Montezuma's daughter, in Dryden's "Indian Emperor." She retired from acting at the ripe old nge of 20. Haven't found out why the rush, but when I do, I'll let you know, until that time, draw your own conclusions and I'll do the same. I sure am mad at the University of Arkansas Coach, Bowden Wyatt. He can't do that to us, just when folks up nawth were beginning to respeiSt Arkansas, he would resign. Cadillac or no Cadillac, what was the big idea? The pasture at the University looked pretty green from where I'm sitting and there just ain't no finer folks on earth than them of us in Arkansas and I'm i aiming to put my two cents worth in »nd I know a few more 'round here what feels the same way.. I hope my ex-English teacher iin't around. 1 guest I'm not a Rosemary Clooney fan, but didn't realiie it until I saw her In "White Christmas." She's gone a fur piece with her records but I don't predict she'll win an Oscar for her acting. Two men sat behind me and one kept talking about how fat she had gotten. Wonder if he hasn't heard? Sure was evident, to say the least. And for the man's information who sat behind me and my grand- chilluns (he is from Blytheville and I happened to know him, but he probably doesn't remember me) Rosemary is expecting in April. So that's the reason for her not having that Dior flat-chested look. Q\iess If the movies, the television and radios emphasize such conditions 'lil pie me can, too, seems the ones who are "that-a-way," or as my grandma said, "in the family way," are the ones who have a better chance to get on some, of the quiz programs, too.
