An Empty Gesture Words That Woo Business Need Backing by Action President Truman wants business lo be happier. lie doesn't want its lenders to feel he's gunning for them simply because he's promoting the Fair Deal. In recent proof of this attitude we have the annual report of his Council of Economic Advisers. Mr. Truman approved the document and two. of his top aides had a hand in shaping it. It's a surprising report. At a time when businessmen are talking ns if they were definitely on the 1'tin before advancing big government, the President has chosen to reassure them in the friendliest and most complimentary words to come out of the White House since the old Republican days. Business has been fearful its freedom might be snuffed out by the "creeping socialism" it sees in a welfare state. Mr. Truman's advisers say this country is firmly committed to freedom for both business and government — that each has a distinct contribution to make toward economic well-being. The advisers not only say the two may live together in harmony. They' contend this co-operation already exists. They credit both business and government for the highly successful war effort and for what they consider the enlightened policies that have kept the economy on relatively even keel since the war. On the other hand, the report ulames both businessmen and statesmen for the Great Depression. Heretofore it has usually ljuen th« former who bore the full weight of criticism for that collapse. Most rcinnvknblc of nil, Ihe advisers openly ni'ge business to disagree with government. They argue that business SHOULD be conservative—wary about tossing away workable ideas before better ones have been clearly tested. A clash of views, they say, actually is beneficial to the nation, especially when undertaken in "good spirit." It remains lo be seen how business will react to these pats on the back. Probably ils leaders will look for some new sign from the Administration that the advisers' talk of co-operation is more than words. Should Mr. Truman make that sign, businessmen perhaps will feel greater encouragement than they have for many a year. But the President has cut out a hard task for himself in this effort to brighten every corner. few favors il is still able to grant, It is questionable whether Indonesia will return th« complimemnt. Chased by the Chinese Communists to the island of Formosa, the Nationalists no longer have much of a ''country" to recognize. iN'ations of the Fur Kasl likely will follow the lead of India by recognizing the Chinese Keils instead. It is they who hold the real China. Talk of recognition that comes- 1 from any point bill the Com- miMiist capital of Peking can only be the faint echo of a once strong voice. It Will Take Every Drop- Views of Others Economics Plus Politics TJie tone of President Truman's economic report to Congress is welcome. His appeal for bus government cooperation aiul for R spirit of "mutual understanding 1 and common purpose" Is helpful. We applaud his vision iti aiming at an expanding economy. Yet the discloses glaring blind spots as to methods. And it is not necessary to lead between the lines to find a good mixture ol poll lies. Quite naturally Mr. Truinim takes pride in present prosperity. The alarm the administration Tell over JiLst spring's recession is reflected in the satisfaction expressed over today's recovery. Avid the President wisely does not claim all the credit fur governmental action. While pleased that ad- jiLsuncnls were made with relatively small trouble, he is emphatic Iti declaring that stability is not enough, He holds up before the American people a live- year gotil of a $300,000.000.000 economy. We will not join those who scoff at this idea. Indeed, we agree with the goal of dynamic economy HIK( with the five general principles Mr. Truman laid down. But we question sharply some of the projects he urges upon Congress. Our major difference with the President Is that we would uut more celiaticc on local and private initiative. He seems to regard any federal activity as a stimulus to business; we regard many forms of governmental intervention and expenditure as definite drags upon private enterprise. On three main grounds we question several of his projects: 1, They tend to lessen individual enterprise and responsibility. '2. They foster political abuses, both by catering to pressure blocs and by building up bureaucracy 3. At a moment when vast sums are required for the "cold war" U\ey threaten boom-time deficits. Mr. Truman recognizes that the decline in private investment is a grave danger, and oilers plans to help small business get capital. But he fails to recognize tiiat some of his spending and taxing philosophies, plus encouragement of labor's demands are prime factors in discouraging Investment. Possibly the adoption of a more conciliatory attitude toward business U a tacit recognition of tins fact, but words should be followed by lourier- s|K?;i.king actions. He properly urges business to holrt prices down to expand markets, but has repeatedly encouraged unions to push up Hie price of labor at the risk of constricting markets. • If tiie President had not been so blatantly poll- UcaiT.m. offering special benefits to various voting blocs,' we could have more confidence in his economics. If he showed some awareness chat political pressures are pushing the naiton into perilous fiscal policies, we could ue more enthusiastic over his emphasis on a growing economy. The mcs.'mgc discloses certain definite gains made by government and business in gathering information and in moving to counteract economic dangers. But it would be well for ali to recognr/e that no prosperity panacea has been devised- Much of today's bootn Ls precariously based on war-stimulated and dcljl-Iinaiiccd business. The test Americas economy met so well In 1949 was mild compared to some that lie ahead— possibly no more than a year ahead. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR The Ciiiuesvi Nationalists arc slill Ivy- ing to make a. noisu like a government.

When It Is typical, it starts in the middle of the night, with severe pain at the base of one of the big toes. This pain Is BO-sharp that it usually yokes the victim from a sound sleep. People who have hnd gout have described the feeling as though the joint were being pried apart with a red hot poker. Gout is almost always a man's disease, though it lias been found in women. It seems to vtm to some extent in families, though a family history of gout cannot always be obtained. It Is comparatively rare before early middle age. Overindulgence in food is likely to bring on ail attack. The particular parts of food \\hich appear to cause most of tVie tiouble are called purines.

That is how the country Ls going to rid ot Us national debt of 3255,000,- QOO.OOO. In fact, the Preskluil doesn't even mention the national debt once in his whole message. This is strange, because this tional debt is the most overpowering monstrosity on the economic landscape. Any realistic appraisal o the State of the Union tcdny shoiilt take the national debt into consideration and say something aboui it f[ it can be assumed that ihi national debt, like the 8255,000,000,000 national product, is to be four i Umps greater in the year 2000 than it is today—why then the national debt will be something over a cool trillion dollars.
