PA'OB BLTTHEVILLB (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, MARCH '4, 1958 Passage of Ike's Trade Program Urged by CIO But Ways of Easing Impact on Domestic Workers Is Asked By JOE HALL WASHINGTON (/ft—The CIO to day urged approval of President Eisenhower's liberalized trade program along with ways of easing its impact on some domestic work ers and industries. James B. Carey, CIO secretary treasurer, told the Senate Finance Committee that his organization has a "long, historical record of American trade policies, but. he said in his prepared statement "we cannot be blind to the fac. that, as a result of the continued reciprocal trade program, injury may occur, in certain instances, as the result of imports irto the United States ... Must Meet Problems "The United States will be able to maintain its liberalized trade program only so long as the United States is prepared to deal effectively with the problems created by imports u'hich tend to solidify the protectionist position against a liberalized trade program in America." To meet the problem of distressed industries. Carey urged passage of a trade adjustment bill as a companion to the House- passed measure to extend the reciprocal trade agreements kiw three years. Would Set Up Aids The trade adjustment bill, already introduced by Senators Humphrey (D-Minni and Kennedy (D-Mass), would set up various aids which the President could use to help communities harmed by imports. These would include supplementary jobless benefits, earlier social security retirement, job retraining, and transportation to new areas for workers; loans, research information and tax benefits for industries; and loans and technical information for communiftes. The House bill which Carey endorsed would give Eisenhower new power to lower duties 5 per cent in each year of the three-year extension of the trade pact law.
