PAGE SIXTEEN Farm Experts Are Optimistic - Officials/Minimize Depression Danger For United States : '..."By GKA^T. DILLMAN (United Press Staff Correspondent) WASHINGTON. .Sept. 25. (UP) — Tlic Agriculture Department said toc)ay that the danger of n depression is much less now than after 'World War I but that it would be "rash" lo dismiss the possibility completely. "• }t added, however, tliat if a depression were to follow tlie present sharp upward spiral in prices, it PCPbably 'would be only short-lived and would be followed by a rapid recovery to higher economic levels than prewar. jhe department's analysis was included in its third minus! "bal- !»iice Sheet of Agriculture" prepared by the Bureau of Agricultural Economics. Pulling it In simple terms, the department said, current savings by individuals, companies and local governments are too large and tlic c|emand for goods ami services Is too great to permit any prolonged depression. : The report jxmitcd out that total national spending last year fell only three per cent below the record 1945 level although the federal government reduced its expenditures for goods and services nearly $51,000.000.000. This . was possible because individuals and companies Increase; t])Cir spending by $43.700.000.000 las,t year after the termination of allocation, priority and price controls. Spending uy local governments jumped $1,600,000.000. National income, meanwhile, cljmbed to a new peak of $165.000,- PfW.KCO. Although a large part of this was absorbed by' higher prices and heavier spending, some was deposited in banks would be available in a depression. ! Department Optimistic , The department said it looked for total spending to continue large defcpite reductions in federal expenditures because: J. Consumer credit, which will be free of government regulation Nov. 1, is expected to expand as Ions as there Is no serious threat to the present prosperity. How mucli it expands will depend on Industry's ability to turn out scarce co'nsur.ic'r goods. '. 2. State and local governments have large sums on'hand earmark- cri for highways, bridges, schools and other public works which were delayed by the war. In other cases. they will borrow money for such projects. '3.-Private- business also .is expected' to increase Us borrowing to finance (he purchase of raw materials, supplies and. labor. Tiic $3,500,000,000 borrowed by corporations in IMS was only 83 per cent Of tile 1922-29 average. 4. Lending Institutions are ex- .pected to make an increasing number of ."good risk" loans to foreign nations. Tills, in turn, .will Biyc them the dollars to buy American products and help keep the domestic Industrial machine running- in Ii'l'gh g<?i)r. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)
