Freeman, munitions agent By AUSTIN C. WHEREIN Washington, May 15 — (UP) — Ten prominent .economists, including three former OPA chiefs, declared today that the nation is rushing headlong toward an "economic bust" in the next three to five yoars. They called for immediate government and congressional- action on an "emergency" nine-point program to stave off the "crisis." The plan includes prompt and "moderate" price reductions and "rapid spread" of the 15-oent hourly wage pattern increase to expand and sustain purchasing power at a lower price level. ledge justify the action which we arc asked to take "Critics who say that the whole matter of aid to Greece and Turkey should have been submitted for I increase provided it was agreed ar- a decision to the United Nations in biters wou'ld determine of tne worn- the first instance are either naive entitled to an additional or are opposed to any aid to .amount as a "cost of living" in- Greece and Turkey.

Few Americans or friends of America will care lo quarrel with that statement. It is to the world's stand for the three other defendants. Counsel for former Kentucky Congressman Andrew Jackson May and arms-manufacturers Henry and Murray Garsson disclosed this today. Justice Henry A. Schw'einhnut, in granting an acquittal motion for Freeman yesterday, ordered lhe trial recessed uhlil tomorrow. The 72-year-old May, wartime House Military Commitlec chairman, r is charged with taking $55,000 in brioes to cio favors for the $78,000.000 Gnrsson munitions, combine which held a total of 68 warcon- tracls. May himself is expected to be a witness tomorrow after Charles J. Margiolli, counsel for the two Garsson brothers, makes an opening defense statement which was postponed vv'hcn lhe Irial began April 22. Freeman is not expected to testi- fv until later on, as the defense expects to take a minimum of three weeks. more in a case already in ils iourlh week. In granting the Freeman acquittal molion, Juslice Schweinhaut turned down similar molions to free May and the Garsson broth- wcek. That's as far as we're go- McCow'en's. statement following the company's rejection of arbitration was: 'It's the usual fiddle-faddle we get from the company. Before the strike, we asked the company if it was willing to arbitrate all or any portion of this dispute. "The company said it was unwilling, for the reason it did not interest as wcl las our own that, care to have outsiders come in and s ji tye maintain a sound economy, lug.i tell it how to run its business!

What w,e should do, then, seems clear enough. Bui how we shouU do it, and to what extent, is not so simple. At what point can we say that our first responsibility is safely discharged? How much a'.- t tention and money can we afford to devote to helping the world heln itself? Perplexing questions like Ihose are al lhe root of some of the current disagreements in Washington. The perplexity is evident in the difference of opinions in the House and Senate—$150,000,000 worth of difference— over how much American money should be appropriated for foreign relief. Thcio is bipartisan agreement on foreign policy. That fortunate cx- ample of statesmanship cannot be I ff discounted. But there is no such ' unanimity on economic policy. II is difficult lo separate thos.e two policies now. It will be more difficult, if not impossible lo separate them when our economy is set to work to put our foreign policy inlo practice. Greek -Turk Aid Bill to White House Washington, May 15 — (#>)— Congress soul lo lhe While House to clay legislation authorizing a $400, 000,000 n'rpgram of financial and limited military aid to bulwark Greece and Turkey against Communism.

On another bill to provide funds for relief of six countries in Europe and Asia, Presidenl Truman urged Congress again lo vole lhe full $350,000,000 asked, saying "lhe peace of lhe world can be realized He commented that he had "as much a feeling in the other direction as lo lhe other three" as he had thai Freeman was innocent.

Freeman had been proved' "up to But Schweinhaut said he felt that even if the jury, of seven men and five women convicted Freeman he w'ould have to set aside th'e verdict. Gordon Canfield, Freeman'<5 lawyer, argued tha,t "two $1,000 campaign contribulions Freeman solic- iled for May's 1944 campaign could nol be considered as evidence that Freeman participaled in any bribery conspiracy. HoHis Considers Hiring Mental Experts Litlle Rock, May 15 — (£>)— Dr. N. T. Hollis, acting superintendent of lhe slale hospital, said today he planned to make "several con- lacls" with mental experts who may be added to the staff of the Arkansas Institution when he attends a cpnvention of the American Psychiatric Association in New York next week. Dr. Hollis, who plans to leave Litlle Rock tomorrow, said, however, that "because of the indecision surrounding my posilion here x x x, I can only go so far at this lime" in planning .expansion of the hospital staff. Allhough nominated hospital su- perinlendenl by the institution's board of control, Dr. Hollis has not been approved by Governor Laney. constitulc the Committee for Economic Stability of Americans for Democratic" Action. Among Ihevct-her signers of their report were :k.,fnei< Price Administrators Leon Henderson and Paul A. Porter, former economic slabil- izer William H. Davis; Robert R. Nathan, wartime head of lhe War Produclion Board planning staff and Lauchlin Currie, former special economic assistant lo the late President Roosevelt. The 30-page report snid that profits had become "swollen beyond anything that business health and vitalily requires . . . al the expense of mass purchasing power." Prices in the last 10 months have in a "wild orgy" outstripped incomes, "forcing a serious squeeze upon the living standards of lens of millions of American families," it said. "A sharp economic setback is imminent," lhe report said. "While it is no longer possible to prevent some kind of business reaction, it is possible to prevent that reaction, from degenerating into a collapse." The committee recommended the following steps be taken within the next GO days to halt the "downward drift of production and employ-, ment": 1. Prompt but moderate pric.e cuts, to avoid drastic reductions later due to collapsing markets: the aim should be lo wipe out about one-half of the increases since last June when OPA controls were loosened. 2. The 15 cents an hour "wage package" increase set recently in major industrv settlements should have a "rapid spread." 3. The wage hour law should be amended to provide a 65 cent hourly minimum and ultimately a 75 cent an hour "floor." (President Truman yesterday urged Congress 1n hnnst the minimum wage to 65 cents."l ""4 . Unemployment compensaliori should be increased and extended to workers not now protected. 5. Rent control should be extended until June 30-. 1948. 6. Taxes should be reduced by i-nisin" individual exemotions, rather than by the percentage cuts proposed by the House. o Move to Boost Wages Draws Plenty Support By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH Washington, May 15 (/P)—President Truman's boost-the-mini mum wage recommendation won Republican as well as Democratic support in the Senate today. But chances for action this year appear dim. Even among backers of the chief c.xecutive.'s proposal there is con- roversy whether a new pay 'floor" should be fixed at 65 cent an hou'rva's urged by Mr. Truman, or at 55 cents, 75 cents or some other figure. The present minimum is 40 cents. It applies to all workers covered by the wage-hour act, in general those whose output I moves across state lines. _While this issue simmered, House-Senate conferees on labor disputes legislation assembled for their lirst try at ironing out differences in two bills designed to check strikes and restrict some union practices.
