WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1950 NewCongress to Face Record High in Spending and Taxes By MARVIN' I.. ARROW-SMITH WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. (/Pj — Huge spending to bolster America's military might and perhaps record nlsh taxes to help pay for it shaped up today as the top Issues in Ihe new Congress meeting In January. ,, Foreign policy will figure Import- JR\Uy In the debate, too. And the •eommunisls-in-governmcnt dispute "lay be revived with new vigor. • Closely tied lo those key Issues are a number of others In the general defense picture which are likely lo keep on the shelf indefinitely most of President Truman's domestic- "Fair Deal" program. The emphasis all along the line when the 82nd Congress takes over is likely to be on strengthening Illis country against Communist aggression. Government spending during; the year starting next July 1 probably will run well over 550,000,080.000. There has been some talk the new hiidet may total as much as SG5.000,- 000,000, with by far the biggest slme cm-marked for defense. In contrast, federal spending t\jis year -.nay add up to about $42.500,000.000. Appropriations are higher, but may not be fully spent. Taxes already have been hiked 54,100.000.000 to help meet the added defense cosls. In the mill is an excess profits tax bill expected to provide another $4.000,000,000 to 56,000,000,000 from business. A "lame duck" session of the expiring Slst Congress, scheduled later this month, may act on that measure, if it doesn't, the bill will have a top priority in the new Congress. Besides deciding how many billions of dollars U> provide for the U. S. mih'tarj' machine, the S2nd Congress faces a decision on how ich economic and arms aid to "nisli to' anti-Communist nations «\jroaci. Also ahead In the broad national defense field are decisions on: 1. Whether to set up Universal Military Training of American youths. 2. Continuing and possibly broad cning the draft lawr It expires next Jl!'" 0. 3. Extension of the economic con- irois program, including authority for wage-price curbs and perhaps rationing of some consumer goods. Most of the present authority will run out next June 30. Between now and then there probably will be much more debate over whether Mr. Truman should exercise his authority to control prices and wages. 4. Extension apd tightening of (he rent control law. Controls expire Dec. 31 unless local areas elect ., . ^^^^^""I^M^iiSKii&iSiaiJiiifc'fc:?- NATURE'S LITTLE TRAGEDY-This tiny sparrow npparemlv become^entwined in .he bit of siring it was usi.^o builc "a es" n Oil City, Pa and accidentally was strangled frying fo free itself.

The ouim includes a matching gold lace cape. man's veto. The upset defeat of veteran Democratic Senator Miller E. Tydings in yesterday's election points up the possibility of the Communists- in-governmcnt row exploding again. Tydings, who was trying for a filth term, headed the Democratic- controlled Senate committee which investigated charges by Senator McCarthy (R-Wis) IhaU Communists infested the State Department. The committee majority labeled the charges "a fraud and a hoax." McCarthy and other Republicans accused the Democrats ol conducting a whitewash. McCarthy campaigned against Tydings and has snlrt repeatedly he intends to keep hammering away on the Communist issue. Foreign Policy Debate That Issue also is sure to crop up in foreign policy debate in Congress, as it did during Ihe campaign. Republicans asserted and Democrats denied that the Truman administration had in effect encouraged Communist aggrc.ssion. The defeat of the Senate democratic leader, Scott W." Lucas of Illinois, is almost certain to prompt new Republican attacks on the Truman administration's handling of foreign policy. That policy was a main issue in the Illinois campaign won by Republican Everett Dicrk- sen. ' Hence, indications are the already much-battered bt-partisan foreign police program is in for more rough going. An all-out war of course, could bring about a general closing of ranks. As for tlie Truman "Fair Deal" progrnm, the President probably will stand by virtually all of It In his State of the Union message to Congress in January. Bub Congress, appropriating and taxing heavily, is likely to bo in a mood for holding do.wn non-defense spending. Even if the lawmakers do get around to the business-as-usual programs, there will again be plenty of opposition lo many of them The Brannan Plan of production payments lo farmers, for example, opposed to that are some Congress members who ordinarily support (he admlnistation. And there's plenty of Republican opposition. In the same boat is Mr. Truman's plan for universal health insurance, which got no place in the Slst Congress. In his campaign speech last Saturday, Mr. Truman . talked about getting rid of the "union-busting" provisions ol the Taft-Hartley labor law. Previously he always had demanded repeal. However, the re-election of Republican Senator Robert A. Tail in Ohio, coupled with the defeat of Democrat Elbert D. Thomas in SHOW STARTS 7:00 P.M.

Mr. Truman's hotly-disputed civil rights program still faces the inevitable Senate filibuster if there Is another attempt to push it through. Even if they administration leaders in Congress are convinced they can't win. Smith, Mullis Lead in Dist. 11 PINE BLUFF, Ark., Nov. 8 Of)— Henry w. Smith of Pine Bluff and Pat H.
