(>P> —Here's an outline of the rapid-lire moves In Washington these next few days. Today—at 1 p.m. President Truman stands before Congress lo deliver his "Slate ol the Union" message. Friday—He sends Congress his economic repoit on the nation. Monday—He sends Congress his midget message. It's that- way every year. Until*- — aft«r Monday Congress will spend most of its time praising or criticizing the messages. The Democrats, mostly, will do the praising. The Republicans, mostly, will 60 the criticiing. This would be unusual only if it didn't happen Dial may. Now take the three messages: State of the Union—. Mr. Truman will tell Congress the kind of program he thinks It ought to pass into law in 1950. This is Hie imlintshed part of the program which Mr. Truman asked Congress to pass in 1949. j home in Tupelo. He had been shot.

What it docs and what ft falls to do will be political ammunition then. You can call the shois now: 1. The TrumanlUtt will blame the Republicans for faUuies and ask the voters to send back an e^eri stronger Democratic congress. 3. The Republicans will jeer that Hie Democrats control Congress now and wouldn't put the program into effect, or they'll say the Democrnl-s are trying to go too far too fast or are trying to bring about socialism or something else. All this cross-fire between now and ejection time will only add lo ttie voters' confusion, which Ls to be expected. The Economic Message — •. Mr. Truman undoubtedly will say the nation is doing fine, imi?t be kept thai way, should try to do better. He'll be on the side of higher ein- ployme nt, busi nep>s prof its , good wages. But if he tolks about boosting texes to take care of government expenses, Democrats and Republicans alike will scream.

This budget is always the cue for an outburst of Congressional oratory—generally --------- "-- the spending. In fact ,both Democrats and Republicans already are calling for Jess government spending. But. whether they, will have voted for less spend ing or more — by the time they finish up net summer- is something else. Right now they'll be for less, not more. Along with his budget message, Mr. 1*111 man will dump on Congress the budget itself, If the budget fell on n man's head, it could knock him out. It's full — item by item and row by row — of figures. represent the costs of running the government. After all this, which will be sometime after next Monday, Congress will get to work.
