Appealing again for enactment of his 10-point anti-inflation program, Mr. Truman said the steady climb in prices, wages and profits already had caused "serious hardship and presents grave concern for the future." The President's combined pleas and warnings came in ms second annual economic report to Congress, a report required under, the so-called full employment act The recommendations in his 35,000 word document were based largely on studies by the Council of Economic Advisers created by the same law. · Accents Bad Prospects Mr. Truman's report saw the bad and good in almost equal proportion.
