Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Boom Hopes Fade WASHINGTON—The President's economic advisers arc more worried than they like to admit over the spring business boom. Reason for worry is thai the hoom hasn't been as big as th'ey expected. There 1ms been a seasonal spurt of prosperity, particularly in the construction business. But retail sales are down, though the figure has never been made public. And a flood of high school and college graduates will pour Into the labor market in another month and a half. This almost certainly means worse- unemployment this summer — unless rumors e.f war in Indochina picks things up. •loe .liuu|is to l-'iiniii'i'N Despite a past record of anli- farm voting, Senator McCarthy has cooked a political ear to Wisconsin rumblings and has sent his investigators to comb the Agriculture department. Their orders are: Ferret oul the "secret Communists" responsible for "undermining the (arm economy." Joe has already taken the stump against Benson's flexible price- support plan, and has added his voice for high, rigid price Mill- ports. In fact, he bus gone Ibr- farni bloc one belter and called for 100 per cent of purity inslciiil of the present ill) per coot. However, llus jitsi happens lo be an about-face fur McCarthy and a belated one. For in Iho past he has foughl for a sliding scale of price supports ranging from !IO down to T,i per eon! of parity His position was identical with Benson's. When Georgia's agricultures-minded Sen.'Dick Russell rammed legislation through Con- Kress In IfMfl, pegging support prices at 00 per ccnl qt parity on Iho six basic commodities, McCarthy joined in the motion to rn- commit Iho bill. He wanted In substitute (he sliding, !)0-to-75 per cent scale, Instead. ,loc's Km- 1 u Iti'corcl This did not end McCarthy's anli-farin voting record, however. He has voled against the farmer right down the line. When the Commodity Credit Corp. wanlecl lo increase ils borrowing authority hy $2,000,000,000, so it could p/iy the price supports, he voled no. And when the Truman administration wanted lo increase storage acililies, McCarthy also voled no. This was the worst blow "jumping Joe" has si ruck at the national (arm program, partly us a result, farmers' surplus grain was left overflowing Ihe bins and rolling on the ground.

Such compromise is acceptable to Ihe I i.S. on one condition. This requirement would liar erl China I rom giving more military aid of any kind lo Ihe satellite Vielminh. These secret proposals were Ihe most important mailer discussed by Secretary of State Dulles nt his hush-hush meeting with congressional leaders he- ore flying lo Kuropc' for Ihe (leneva Conference with Russia and lied China. Dulles indicated Ihe Krench are prepared lo offer Hits cease-fire formula al Ibis parley. He ox- pressed belief Ihe Communists would reject Ihe plan, particularly if it Includes American stipulation. This is being "sor- iousy" considered hy the Krench. Dulles lold Ihe congressional leaders he was handed Ihe armistice proposal during his hurried mooting with Premier Laniel last week. Us key provisions were 11) The aggressor Vietminh lo evacuate completely Laos Cambodia. (2) The Reds lo evacuate or give up their arms in central und southern Vietnam. (.1) In northern Vietnam, "the Communist forces to withdraw beyond the Red River Delta, and a neulral hone to be established between them and French Union forces in the Delta area. Alter these terms have been fulfilled, France and the three Associated Stales of Indochina will enter negotiations with the Vielminh and Keel China for a peace pad. Dulles said he informed the I-'ronch Ihiil while their compromise has cerlain merits, il is not acceptable lei the U.S. without major changes. Chief of them is that Red China will cease arming ils satellite Vielminh. Dulles pointed out that Communist withdrawal from Laos, Cambodia and central and southern Vietnam, the most productive sociions of Ihat country, would enable Kranc-e and the V. S. lo build them up economically, politic-ally and militarily. This would create a "situation o strength" that would constltuttc a powerful barrier to renewed Communist aggression in nut only Indichinu but all of Southeast Asia.
