WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1950 "BLYTH'EVIU,]! (ARK.)' COUNTER NEWS PAGE FTV* Taft Rips Truman Administration for '50 Mild Inflation By MA11VIN L. AKKOWSM1TH WASHINGTON, Sept. 27. (API- Senator Taft (R-Ohlo) declared today that the Truman admlnlstra- i deliberately promoted "a mild tton" and so Is to blame lor prices. 'Senator McFarland (D-Ariz) disagreed. He said President Truman nsfed for anti-inflation powers as far back as the GOP-controlled 80th Congress In 1941-48—?nd that members blocked that credit almost impossible." McFarland, on the other hand,I old a rejwrter "it 111 behooves the Republicans to say the responsibility '.or inflation rests on the ad- mnistration." The Republicans, he I •Vdded, must shoulder blame for the ack of any anti-inflation law on He books until after the lighting 1 n Korea started. Taft said that if the government falls to apply credit controls vlg- | Republican request. Taft, chairman of the Sepate Republican Policy committee, express ed his views in the column he writes weekly for Ohio voters. Taft Is candidate for re-election. "What the people should real ize," he said, "is that the Increas In prices is directly due to the IlnUonary policies of the admlnls tratlon." He added that unless there Is a third world war serious inflation can be prevented by: 1. Levying taxes "sufficient lo pay our way as we go," and— 2. "Courageously using the government's power" to prevent expansion of credit. "Pay.As-You-Go" On ihe tax question, Taft was in agreement with Roy. Blough, one of the Presidents' three economic advisers. Blough said in a speech at Lake Placid, N.Y., last night there Is no reason why this country cant' pay for Its defense effort —U there is no general war—out of cwrent taxes. "lough said heavy taxation is the best way to prevent Inflationary price rises and expressed the opinion that taxes "should have been much higher" during the second wcrld war. Taft, called the $4,700,000,000 tax Increase which Congres enacted last wee ki step in the right direction. He said, however, that eomplcte tested of the situation must be made in January "when we man better judge the actual expenses of the government necessary to meet the Communist threat.." Mild Inflation Seen Taft declared the administration pursue da deliberate policy of.pro- moting "s. mild Inflation during W50." He added: "Prices began to rise three months before the Korean war, and they rose because of a deliberate credit expansion policy of the administration. "The treasury and the Federal orously. price consols n\ay be nee-1 essary in the long run. "But whether such controls can succeed In lime of peace is certainly open .lo question," Tall added. "After the second, world war \ve saw (as a result of price controls) nothing but shortages and black markets. The remedy was worse than the disease." Taft said price curbs would have to be accompanied by wage controls | "and nil the bureaucracy of an OPA." lW hat's This?
