BLTTHEVTLLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 1968 Fulbright Says GOP Politicians Hampering Stock Market Inquiry By ED CREAGH WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Fulbright (D-Ark) declare today "professional Republicans" are trying to plunge th Senate stock market inquiry into partisan politics becaus they seem to lack confidence in the American economy. Fulbright, chairman of the Sen &te Banking Committee, hit bad at GQP National Chairman Leon ard W. Hall, who criticized th committee's inquiry last night in a, speech in Miami. Hall referred to the hearing a vehicle for spreading "gloom anc doom" and said it may well havi caused the recent market prici break. "I have tried," Fulbright said in a statement, conduct this study of the stock market in fair and friendly fashion and I think I have a right to object to professional Republicans attempting to interrupt this important Commodity And Stock Markets- Ntw York Cotton <M:3» (HHtaUonl) May 3370 3370 3361 July 3398 3398 3388 Oct 3407 3407 3396 Dec 3418 3419 3410 New Orleans Cotton May July .

I would object just as vig orously if Democratic politician attempted to pump politics into th study." Curtice Testifies In the inquiry itself, Presiden Harlow H. Curtice of General Mo tors took sharp issue today wit Suggestions—by Fulbright and oth ers—that there is no real compe tition in the automobile industry. On the contrary, he said in pre pared testimony, the industry "is even more competitive today than at any time in its 50-year hi: tory." He brought along charts to prove he said, that GM's car price, 'have been consistently belou those of the rest of the industry." Fulbright has told repeatedly o hearing reports GM could maki profits even if it cut prices so far that its major competitors would be forced out of business. He says he understands t h e company doesn't do this for a variety reasons, among them that GM would be subject to possible government prosecution as a monopoly. In another development, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce declare: business is expanding healthily and without danger of a stock market crash—despite what the Chamber called "loose talk" growing out of .he Fulbright investigation. The Chamber issued last night i report saying recovery from the 1953-54 recession not only continued but "actually gained momen- um" in the first three months of his year. Hall said the stock market developed "jitters" after Harvard iconomist John Kenneth Galbraith 'filled the air with dire state- nents" in testimony before the Fulbright cornmitete. Hall said Galbraith is "an old- ime New Dealing, ADA-type of .nti-Jeffersonian radical" who has 'flirted around" with one or two 'pink fronts." Galbraith, who testified March 7, told the committee he didn't expect a market crash, but urged precautions to prevent one. "A careful reading of the record," Fulbright said "will show that he primarily urged caution. But even had he painted a gloomy icture. should his opinions be squelched so that the American people should be given only information that is optimistic?" Fulbright went on to say: "Apparently I am a great deal more confident on the strength of America than the Republican professionals are. They seem to fear that' the economy can't stand examination." BAPTIST SPEAKER — Porter Rouih, executive secretary of the Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee, will be guesi speaker at First Baptist Church Sunday. He is the only layman ever to hold the position and attended Oklahoma Baptist University, University of Missouri and Southern Baptist, Theological Seminary.

Car Unknown He said they drove him away in a Cadillac car, then took the keys and left him in the car. State poJice were searching for the killers today but didn't know what type of car they might have taken after abandoning the getaway car. Robertson said he knew of no reason for the killing and the killers gave no indication of their motive. He described them as a Negro armed with a sawed-off shot gun and a white man with a nylon stocking pulled over his head, armed with a pistol. Couldn't Warn Him "They came in the store about midnight asking for Utley and a few minutes later Utley called, saying he'd be there in about 2C minutes," state police quoted Robertson as saying. "We couldn't warn him because they had guns on us," he said. '•They shot him down as he walked in the door, then took his wallet."
