WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 14 ,194* Government Spending is Causing Great Concern Says Ohio Solon BLTTHEVTLLK (ARK.)' COTJHIEK NEWS By Jack Bell WASHINGTON, Dw 14 (/r) _ Senator Taft (R-Ohio) said today the greatest concern of the voters is "the size of the public debt and the spending policy of tlie government." This v/as his finding after a 13- week campaign in which, lie covered 75 Ohio counties. Taft said in a statement from his office here that he Is convinced there Is no "slide toward socialism" 111110115; his constituents. The phioan Is a candidate for re-election to the Senate next year and made his lout as part of that •Campaign. His conclusions carrv national weight because of his in- 1 fluence In shaping Republican strategy as chairman of the Senate GOP republican policy committee. "I do not think that workmen are by any means persuaded In favor of the socialistic, planned economy, hand-out state principles supported by the CIO and AFL leadership." Taft said. He said the real danger of such proposals is that the bulk of voters will giect them with little interest. "My own job and that of others concerned with the preservation of liberty and the American system is to bring tlie isucs directly and forcefully to the people," he declared. Scores Aiiiilhy In this connection, Taft said he found that "the program of price fixing and controlled business, of deficit spending and the nationalization of medical care and other services excites little support, and not as much interest as it should." "I do not agree at ail with those who fear that the workmen are inclined to vote for anyone \vho promises them free services from a federal bureau," he said. Taft said he thinks a substantial number of workers approve of the Tan-Hartley Act. He said he found Ohio farmers in a frame of mind to resist Department of Agriculture production controls, although they want government support prices for their crops "at some reasonable point." ^ "The Idea that the Ohio farmer '"can be bought by government handout seems to me a complete fallacy," lie sairi. On other matters, he commented: "My impression is that tlie people j thoroughly approve of a vigorous policy against communism, both in Europe and China, hnt that they question the wisdom of gifts and Inans to Europea'n countries to support that policy. "There seems to be no questioning of the necessity of our maintaining adequate armed forces, particularly in the air. regardless of expense." Obituaries Retired Farmer, E. B.

But when you read the price tags on this smart and sizable Buick Sl'J-ClAL of 1950— When you listen to the throaty baritone of the big Fireball valve-in-head straight- eight engine that fills its bonnet- When you feel its lift and surge on the road, sample (be soft that's yours with coil springs on nil I'mir wheels (and wide Safety-Ride rims as well)— When you see how neatly this beauty slips into pocket-size parking places, avoids "lockcd-hot n" tangles, and threads its way through traffic- When you take in its roominess, see its wide outlook, picture yourself traveling in the sleek, taper-fender styling that calls the turn on the smartest fashions for 1950— When you hear snme of the milcs- l>er-giillfitt figures hfi/ijiy owners of this hcniily fire reporting — Man alive, this stands out as abar- gain that says, "Grab me quick!" Actually, dealers have trouble keeping this particular model of the 1950 SPECIAL on hand. Quick action may be able to nail one for you — or a six-passenger model in 2-door or 4-door body-type. Why not see your dealer now—and start the New Year as a Buick owner at a cost that's less than for some sixes? 0o ^*-%f 31 An pH:|S^:-^L ""—^^s£«r ^ routxtr re 6n £&one youf BtUCK denier for » demonstration — Ritrht Nowl LANGSTON-McWATERS BUICK CO.
