He sharply criticized red-ink spending of the Democratic administration and pointed ,out that the last income tax reduction was passed by a Republican congress in 1948 over three presidential vetoes.

This sweeping forecast made no reference to (he possibility of Republicans gaining control of Congress In the 1952 presidential election.

"Then the $12,000 income for each family will represent $2,160 in 1939 purchasing power."

Uominick Manoli. counsel for th National Labor Relations Board opened the argument before Fedcrn. District Judge Richmond II. Keech In Denham's case. Manoli started off by offering a score of exhibits. Heading the list was last week's report from James Hoyd. director of the Bureau of Mines, stating that a national crisis exists or shortly will exist unlcs-i normal coal output is restored.
