__ TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1952 Defense Spending Leveling Off Early; Business May Be Slowed B.. SILT »«>¥ rcr •» »nir..._,^_ . (AKK.) COURIER NEWS By CHARLES F. BARRETT WASHINGTON (IT, — A government economist, says the golden tide of defense dollars is leveling off far ahead of schedule — and may *ash some of the props from under business in the process. Robert C. Turner, a new member of President Truman's three- man Council of Economic Advisers, gave (his surprise appraisal yesterday as he Look his oath o( office. In a brief speech, and later in an Interview, Turner told of new government studies which he said show thai defense spending and production already have virtually reached their peak. Was Ble Stimulus Earlier forecasts, by Truman and his mobilization chiefs, had indicated a steady, continued expansion until mid-1053. This projected expansion—as well as current spend-' ing—had been a big stimulus to business. Turner, 44-year old business protestor at Indiana University, pictured the nation as standing now at a crossroads where it must face an end to further substantial increases In defense spending — with fur reaching effects on business and on the vast, program by which the government attempts to guide the eco' norny. Job to Be Difficult As Turner put it, this mean's, ft will be "a difficult and delicate job to maintain our present prosperity." At another point he said continued growth and stability will" require "economic statesmanship of the highest order." One offshot of the new situation, Turner indicated, might be a further easing of direct controls on prices, wages and materials. Instead of asking the public to spend less, the government might encourage more private buying to try to keep business growing. Another effect ,lf the outpouring of defense outlays levels off at present rates, would be a reduction in the government budget considerably under present estimates. "We've had an expanding economy for two years—an expansion forced by the defense program," Turner told a reporter. "Now we can't count any longer on a forced expansion. We will have to do some hard thinking." Government defense spending totaled more than four billion dollars in June slid July and over three biljion in August. Turner foresaw a high level plateau of monthly spending somewhere around the four billion figure.

Controls Hot Subject for Wives, Woods Finds FRESNO, Calif I*—Federal price boss Tighe E. Woods knows today, If he didn't know before, that price controls are a controversial subject among housewives. Woods subjected himself to a Ko UPTL ?° K FOR " truce n <Wi as if the Chinese and at Panmunjom take a dim view™ '™ " a—ruUir ' e ma£r1»u h 8 P 3 " eW meetin « h °" se *here, covered with materials heavy enou E h to keep out the coming winter winds' heated two-hour session here yesterday in which some 400 women gave him their views on the value of controls. The meeting was the first of several Woods plans throughout the country. The sentiment was so divided that Woods commented: "I see this is still a country of individuals." One group told the new price chief controls at the consumer level were the housewife's last stand in the battle against inflation. Another asked even stronger controls. Those opposing controls branded them un-American and unnecessary. Several women declared competition and the law of supply and demand would take care of rising prices if controls were lifted They also decried the cost of administering controls, which an OPS official said amounted to 5D cents per capita per year. Mrs. Thomas la Faut was just as positive controls should be retained. "I don't think this is the time to rely on the law of supply and demand to take prices down " she said, "if inflation continues, the cost of defense mobilization will go up and that will come out ot our taxes."
