Green WASHINGTON, Dec. 5. (/IV-Warnlngs of inflation are fluttering again m the capital, but most of the economic lookouts discount any ^mmediate peril. They see fairly steady, prosperous sailing throughout 1950. President Truman is not expected to revive his demands of a year ago for drastic "standby" anti-inflation powers. Tills is despite the rise in credit to new peaks, the firming of prices, and the fall improvement In business and employment. Government economists and some pr.vale experts report the revival of an "inflationary potential." They base tiie report mainly on heavy in- the-rcd spending by the government and on the new round of wage- and-pension increases. Yet few of them expect a major price whirl In the next 12 months. The "disinflation" is not over for some imjxirtniU industries Many economists believe the long-range t , • hazard Is deflation. 8 " •' ' ' v< A «incei;.-=.w of,tl ?fl forecast.* might toil 'down to rli is :.:•"= Sfeel Price Hike Is Expected Soon New Wage, Pension Increase Boasting Production Costs PITTSBURGH, Dec. 5.

His remarks came on the heels of a statement from the head of the nation's fourth largest steel producer which left little doubt consumers ultimately for steel. Declaring that production will pay more costs are rising. Admiral Ben Morcell chairman of the board and president of Jones and Laughlin Steel Corporation, declared: "It becomes crystal clear that the increased costs for raw materials for services and for labor which are now being imposed on us. must be balanced by corresponding increases in prices." Careful Study Needed "What form this revision will take the particular products to which ii wit] apply, and the amount of increases. should be determined only after the most careful study of costs and the present and prospective demand for our products." A spokesman for U. s. Steel Cor. Deration, world's largest producer. had no comment on Morccll's statement. However, a spokesman for Republic Steel Corporation said his firm " C. of C.

Wi—Herbert Hoover is coming back to a new drive to reorganize tlie government as - fra step toward economy. I The Hcpublica.i former presidcn will speak next Monday night before the National Itcorganiy.iitloi Conference. His theme will he one that some GOP party members arc voicing as a rally cry for the I0. r i0 Congressional campaigns _ a 1 contention that excess spending am high luxes are threatcnh." the existence of the republic. Speaking at a non-partlsun forum. Hoover is expected to stick to his main topic that widespread savings can be made by reorganization of the government. In a preview of his speech in New York last week, boirevei-, he covered a broader field. He said that the principal danger to the Re- Public lies in the attitude of m:iu> groups in the country who think they ought to he fed by the taxpayers instead of making :i livlns r themselves. Criiimniy j s Practice This Is Hie .sore of thing Scua- t."v Tuft <R-Ohio> has been talking about, in attacks of the "hand-out strife" which he says is the Truman administrali^n's aim. Guy G. Ciab- rlclson, (he .OOP national chair man, varied the phrase by calling it a "poorhonsc state." Hoover said economy in government Is a practice, not a theory. He is likely to find a difference of opinion in Washington over how much economy is piactical. Senator O'Mahoncy iD-Wyo), who agrees that wasteful siicndliif? ought to be eliminated, said It's a lot ciisier to talk about cutting the budget than lo do it. The Wyoming Senator heads the Semite-House Economic Committee He lol da reporter he thinks Hint any effort to cut outlays for such items as highway building and fi'ihting stream pollution would merely reduce the opportunities for business and "cast u wet blanket upon our economy."
