^THURSDAY, DECEMBER 29, 1049 BLA'THEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THE NATION TODAY— Tests for Truman's Fair Deal Lie Ahead Following Year of Slow Moves by a Cagy Congress lly James MarluM' WASHINGTON, Dec. 29. M'j—Except ill lime ol war or great emergency when moves are vast ami fabl. each j-car that passes is like a slow lirklge between the; years behind and (he years ahead. The year 1043, at home. was like Hie slow budge. When Fi-atiklin o. Honscvelt tookt> . ever the presidency in 1933 and the country was in its gicatvsl depression. Confess practically gave him a blank check and whipped tlircXigh tiie steps he recommended. Tins was the period of emergency. T^f: pace gradually slowed down EyPrtniijh. sun under depression's spur, the Roosevelt administration put through a number of actions for reform, change and remedy. liy 10;iB [lie last of the biK New Heal MK'nMiics— the wage-hour law — was pus.sed. The country was coming out of the depression. Congress became increasingly conservative. Then uai-. The U. S. turned upside-down in its all-oul cftoit. War ended. The nation iwintnlly adjusted itself to pence and President Truman began to pick up where- ilic New Deal left ofl. What iie lecommended finally took shape as his "Fair Deal" mil he made his program a primary only when lie ran foi 1 the Obituaries Ed Belt Succumbs in Hospital Here; Mass is Arranged Rosary Mass for Ed Belt, 73, will be conducted at tile Cobb Funeral Ciiapel at. 7:30 tonight, with the Funeral Mass to be held at the Immaculate- Conception Church at 8 a.m. tomorrow.

Mr. Dell, who had operated a photographic studio here for several years, died at 11 p.m. last night at the Blytheville Hospital, where he had been a patient for a week.

But he h;rs three more years in which to push his nrogram before , ° .............. His Democrats, facing the voters 1)e at fat ' Oenevicvc, Mo. in the presidential year of 1052. can say: "\Ve rmve done so and so. Do you want more?" Part of Iiis program went through in 1949, some more of it probably will go through in 19.'iO. This yeai- congress, controlled by his Democrats, raised minimum wages from 40 to 75 cents an ?d a low-rent housing iearance plan; kept rent 137 East Cherry wages trom g j!'; started • slum cieai itrols. And the House passed a bill widening social security, increasing the benefits to oid people. The Senate probably will make this change in social security a laxv in 1950 by following the House's action. On other things, like his civil rights program.Mr. Truman got nowhere in 1949 and he'll probably get no further in 1950. 1951 and 1952. Congress itself didn't stir into action on improved social set'.irity and better old-age jiensions until CIO -steelworkcrs made it clear that labor was going to make security one of the big issues in the years ahead. They won a pension from the steel companies. This is the threat — security — which has run through the New Deal and tile Fair Deal. More security is what President Truman harps on, it's the main gruond on which he fights. But just as the New Deal's security programs didn's all come a- bput in one week or one year, so ' \ one expects Mr. Truman's _ slammed through Congress at one stroke. The New Deal, in the live vears between 1933 and 1938. pushed "here, pushed there, getting Us security program over piece by piece. Mr. Truman is trying the same.
