THEPARIS NEWS, WIDNISOAY, OCT. 5, 1940 —17 BUSINESS MIRROR Opinions Differ On Big Issues By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK OP) — How can we take some of the burdens of office off the shoulders of the president of the' United States? Can tho nation deal adequately with both its increasing domestic problems and mounting and quick changing foreign turmoil without slighting one for the other? These are widely debated issues in the presidential campaign. Opinion on how to deal with them differs markedly. But the National Association of Manufacturers says this week that the basic issue involved in both' questions is how much the federal government should do and how much should be left to the states or to private endeavor. In a study of the role the federal government should play, the NAM holds that it is increas d federal involvement in local matters that adds to the burdens of the presidency and also leads to conflict of emphasis between foreign and domestic problems. The NAM has never been counted among the friends of increased involvement of the federal government in local government duties or in business matters. But the trend toward centralism has gone on steadily. And today NAM charges this is hurting the government in its conduct of defense and survival policies in confused and critical times. It argues that increased reliance upon the federal government to solve domestic and local problems saps the energies of the president. It also holds that Congress and diplomatic and defense agencies arc diverted from concentrating on foreign dangers. Opposed to the NAM view is the one holding that federal participation is needed to make the economy stronger, and hence able to ward off outside threats. Champions of centralism hold that Washington must do what the states don't or won't. But the NAM contends this overburdens the president. It says it isn't fair to the man or to the office to assume a superhuman endowment, either of physical stamina or of wisdom, concerning every detail of the life and work o( (he citizens. It wants his responsibility limited to truly national tasks. Tho' business group argues ,tliat states and focal communities could bear the cost of local projects if they weren't beguiled by the ease of obtaining federal funds.
