Government . spending and consumer spending are almost certain. to increase while business spending is expect ed to remain at high levels. Fed eral spending is scheduled to increase from $70 to $80 billion Consumer spending is expected to rise because of higher incomes . more liberal credit conditions, one a greater desire lor goods. Consumers are recovering from their over buying during the first nine months of the war. So said Dean Paul W. Milan of the University College of Business Administration before the opening session this morning of the annual Arkansas Bankers' Seminar. The seminar continues through this week. Others on the program today were Falkner . Broach of the National Bank of Tulsa, and Tom Whitesides of the Bratt-Waison Bank in Slloam Springs. Bankers and their wives were to be dinner guests at the · Fayetteville Country Club tonight. Price increases on goods bought by the public are likely to be small, possibly not over two to three per cent during the next 12 ' months, Dean Milam said. Goods w»nt«H by the public are likely to become more- abundant, especially it further serious labor troubles · rre avoided. Greater ability to produce, growing out of cornple- tion/of new plants, will largely ofiset the increase in the money .'.t-.pply resulting from the federal government spending more than it takes in. The amount of the federal deficit is not likely to «x- ceed $6 billion on a cash basis. · The new independence of the Federal Reserve System should insure that the U. S. Treasury will make new federal bonds guf- . fidently attractive that money will not have to be manufactured to pay for them. Some reduction in business ac. tivity may be expected after next year, although the income of the public after taxes may be maintained at high levels. Federal spending for defense is expected to drop between $5 and $10 billion a year over a two-year period with MONDAY t v i w AUOUJT 11, in 7 AP, K int Arfcinsis Democrats Waned tapemioi Rule In Force Little Rock -(f)- Democrats in Arkansas are being cautioned to stay in the fold or face a two-year suspension from the party. Beloit Taylor of Little Rock, secretary of the Pulaski County Democratic Committee warned Arkansans yesterday that they could be suspended from the Democrat party for two years if they support any GOP candidates in the November general election. Suspension includes withdrawal o. the right to vote in any Democrat primary election in the state. No statewide Republican primary i: held in Arkansas. "The party rule has closely followed in the past," Taylor said, "because of the Republican party'! relative weakness in the state. Tht fact that a voter presents himself at a Democrat primary and asks for a ballot'is a Democratic party rules in Arkansas allow the election judges to require an a f f i d a v i t of any party primary voter "as to his qualifications." Any person who supported or "espoused the cause tacit agreement that he will sup- ol" any candidate other than = port the party's candidate in t h e ' Democrat in the "last proceeding I general election." I general election" is not a qualified I according to the \ His announcement came on the i primary vote, heels of a statement by Republican | rules, officials that they plan to offer a "full slate of candidates" in November. J»ff Speak, who polled more votes in 1950 than any GOP candidate since the Reconstruction , era, will again head the ticket as not been I the gubernatorial nominee. Taylor said that klthough the "challenging" responsibility lies primarily with election judges, i "there a:-- others, including special representatives of the candidates, who have lenge." a right to chal- High Chinese Reds, Kremlin Leaders Confer Moscow - (tP) - Chjnese Premier Choa En-lai and Kremlin leaders "prepared today for major talks aimed at tightening the military, economic and political ties of the Chinese-Soviet Communist partnership. The premier, who is also Red China's foreign minister, flew to 1 Moscow yesterday from Pciping with a big delegation that included his deputy premier, Chen Yung, and a sizable group of mili- ary experts. The nature of the op-level discussions between the world's biggest Communist nations was kept secret. It was evident, however, among those taken up since Chou brought along the deputy chief of Peiping's general staff, Su Yui; his Air Force commander, Lyu Ya-low; Deputy Navy Commander Lo Shun Chu. and Depuly Commander of Artillery Tsu Chuan. Judging by others in the party, closer economic bonds will be sought also. Economic specialists with Chou included Minister of Heavy Induslry Wan Haoshou, Minister of Fuel Chen Yui, Deputy Minister of Communications I rnce. Wang Cheng, Deputy Minister ot Machine Building Wang Tao-han t h a t ; and economic expert Li Fughung. On the political side were the head of the Asian department of the Peiping Foreign Ministry. Chen Chi?.-kan; the chief of the Soviet and Eastern Europe department, Hsui Yi-hsin, nnd the ministry's political secretary, Shih Chen. The Chinese got » full red-carpet reception by top -Soviet leaders at Ihe airport--indicaling the high importance the Hussiah government attaches to the" confer- the odds favoring the high figure. With the completion of many new plants and less need to maintain high inventories, business spend- "ing will probably decline. Spend, ing for new homes is almost certain to be lower, Milam declared. There will probably be a big expansion in government spending . on highways, streets, schools, and health facilities. " There is no prospect of a serious depression in the middle '50's even though business activity may be at a lower level, he asserted. · State Outlook OMd The outlook for a high level of business activity in Arkansas is also favorable. However, there has · been « slowing down in recen years of the rate of gain in income. Income of the people o: Arkansas before taxes was up 12 per cent last year for the same gain as the nation. Up to a few years ago our income was increas- · ing more rapidly than for the nation as a whole. The recent school census Indicates Arkansas is still not gaining appreciably in popu- · lation because the people of Arkansas are moving to other states where incomes are higher, Dean Milam told the bankers. "T\vo road blocks to expansion are found in the tax structure. ,. Our present income tax law requires the payment of taxes on income that we don't have. It requires payment of a tax on that part of our income taken by federal income taxes. The payment of the same amount of income taxes »s at present, but in the form of taxes would remove the feeling of a per cent of the federal income injustice that comes from paying taxes on Income we don't have. It · would »Iso reduce costs and make collections more effective. "The other road block to expansion of Industry in Arkansas is · the high nominal rate of the property tax. The actual rate is not high because the actual assessment rale Is far below the legal rate. However, the high nominal rate frightens away outside investors because they arc afraid of having to do business with politicians to prevent assessments from being raised to the legal rate," he said. Arrest Made, Dierks Bank Is Closed Dierks, Ark.-(jP)-The Bank of i Dierks was closed today and State '^'] Banking Commissioner Ed I. McKinley said "serious irregularities" had been discovered in the bank's books. He also added that an arrest had been made and that charges would be filed in the U.S. commissioner's office in Hot Springs. McKinley said it was a little early to say exactly how much money is missing, hut that the irregularities are of "serious proportions." The shortages . were first discovered last Wednesday, the commissioner said, and it would be Wednesday before~an examination ot the bank's books will be completed and the amounts lost established. It \vas reported the directors of the bank had met yes- ter day and adopted » resolution turning the bank over to the state banking commissioner for liquidation. M. W. McFarlan, special agent in charge of the Little Rock office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said that a complaint would be filed before a U.S. Commis- City police would like to know i just what kind of car it \vas, and I of people were in it. that turned over twice on North 71, landed on its wheels, and sped away, about 2 i. m. today.

In the space of onlv four years Fulbrisht has risen from eighth and lowest ranking Democrat on the committee to third, with excellent prospects of becoming chairman in at least a couple o; years--if the Democrats keep control of the Senate. ,, It's an almost incredible risf. When Fulbright went on the committee in January. 1949, abend of him, on the Democratic m'de were such stalwarts as Connally of Texas. Thomas of Utah, Tydings of Maryland, Popper of Florida and MrMahon of Connecticut. One by one these were eliminated by defeat, retirement or death. Now the only Dcmocrals who out-rank Fulbright arc Senator George of Georgia, 74, and Senator Green of Rhode ilslsnd, »4. George, an expert on finance, passed up a chance to become chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee several years ago in order to retain chairmanship of the Finance Committee. At that time Connally took the job. Presumably George still would prefer the finance chairmanship. Senate rules don't permit a sen-] alor to hold two chairmanships. Green may or may not want to take Ihe responsibility. But, though he will be 85 in October, he is hale and hearty and gels around with the vigor of a much younger man, and he might want the job Green's present term expires in British Resort Town Hit By Flash Flood; 39 Feared Drowned Vacation Spot After The Storm . . sioner in Hot Springs today giving names and figures.
