SEPT. 11, 1932 (ARK.) COURIER Official Brows Wrinkled at Prospects For Keeping Expanded Industry Busy By SAM DAWSON MEW YORK Wl—How to keep the greatly expanded Industrial machine busy—with jobs for all— is wrinkling official brows now as well as those in Industry. Commerce Secretary Sawyer tells Commodity And Stock Markets— N«w York Cotton Oct Deo Mar May businessmen that once the re-arming peak Is passed, they must put as much thought into the problems of marketing their goods as they have been Into producing them. The problem, Industry can turn out more goods' (once It quits making arms) than consumers seem willing to buy, at present prices. Loss of government money for defense, work therefore could mean that men and machines would be fdLe. And the feared slump would be here. Businessmen Startled Robert C. Turner, new member of Ihe President's council of economic advisors, starlles some businessmen by warning that Open High law Close 3967 3919 3958 3959 3000 3975 3952 3954 j 3955 3968 3945 3945 3SM 3951 3927 3928 the levelling off of defense fipend- Ing-on which thetr prosperity Is built in large part - may he at hand - m\ifh sooner than most of them expected. This isn't as frightening as It might seem. Turner says that spending is levelling off at better than four billion dollars a month, or around 40 billion a year. And is likely lo hold at that through next year. Actually the spending on the hard goods of war will continue lo expand up lo next summer at least. That will be offset, Turner says, by a downturn • In spending on soft goods (like uniforms) already under way, and the levelling off of spending for housekeeping and maintenance of military installations and the armed forces.

Williams said today STEVENSON"" (Continued from Page I) 'em.... Give 'em hell. Adlai." It's Only ihe "Dickens" Stevenson did not exactly "give p ern hell" on Ihe trip. But he is beginning to give 'em (he dickens. This was his first experience at whistlestop campaigning, the type that has been credited to a large decree with President Truman's election victory in 1948. He boarded a train in San Francisco and rolled through the Santa Clara and San Joaquin Valleys to Los Angeles. This is the heartland of California agriculture. It also is the Kite of some important irrigation and flood control projects. He made eight stops and usually overstayed his 10-minute schedule. At the end of a grueling day, his throat was full of gravel and he looked tired. But the crowd reactions seemed to restore his energy and he held the pace. Police estimates fixed the crowds at 1,500 to 2,000 at most points. In Fresno, however, a sergeant put the figure at 6.000. The city has a population of 92.000. Except when he discussed some local or regional situation, Stevenson said little that he hasn't said elsewhere In his speeches. Republicans Taunted He taunted the Republicans about the "Old Guard" and the other wing of the parly, and needled the GOP on Ihe ground that Eisenhower is stealing all the planks in the Democratic platform. The Democrats, he said, "clean, honest, efficient ment." On more regional issues. "quickie marriages" are worse than "quickie divorces." The Puiaski County chancellor, whose court handles many divorce cases, criticized the waiving of -Arkansas' three-day waiting period to permit immediate marriages. Such action, he said, had "caused many unhappy marriages which are then dumped fnlo our laps as divorce cases." Williams, a former Arkansas attorney general, said that. If a county judge will waive the three- day period it is possible for a person to obtain a divorce andj-emarry within one day in Arkansas. Williams commented on the Investigation of quick divorces granted in Criltenden County and took issue with the statement of the judge making the probe that "conditions are no different in other parts of the state." (See related slory on Page 1.) "I don't know how chancellor Leon Smith would know about conditions all over the state," Williams said. "We have no such condition in this district. . . "When a man comes in here and sues his wife for a divorce, in addition to the usual formal notice of the suit and the time allowed to reply, she is advised that she may come here at the husband's expense and make whatever defense she desires to make. . . "I always want to know why the man' did not sue in his home state. . ." Obituaries are for govern- , he spoke out for public reclamation programs and water control project* such as California's Central Valley project.. He said — repeating parts of a whole speech made in Seattle — that such works ar beyond the capacity of private capital, and that If the government had not built them, they would not have been built. • Stevenson commented on Eisenhower's backing of Sen. William E. Jenner for re-election in Indiana: He (Eisenhower) has included on his team people who have called Gen. George C. Marshall, one of the greatest patriots this country has ever produced, a traitor to his country."

Truman said he did not give a hoot what the newspapers said editorially if they gave the Democrats a break in the news columns, "Ni> Comment on McCarthy" Truman was asked for comment on the victory by Sen. Joseph B. McCarthy in the Wisconsin He- publicaji primary. He said he did not lo make any. He also refused comment on the decision by Gov. Allan Shivers and some other Texas Democrats that they will support Eisenhower. Truman's assertions that a Republican Congress would be "isolationist" were touched off by a remiest for comment on slale- ments Eisenhower made during a brief visit here yesterday.
