Speaking Of Economy: Algeria Isn't Healthv Child ALGIERS (AP) Moslem and I made people .lose heart. Many French officials and businessmen who left temporarily have de- .say the economy of the I0-day-old Algerian nation is nearly on the rocks and no one has any con- crete plan for keeping it afloat. "Confidence is said one European banker. "Business ac- tivity is down to about one third of what it was six months ago, and it is still declining." He added: "The events of the past few days, the disputes between the leaders, the lawlessness and the administrative this .has ieing made daily by thousands o rather than by gov- ernment steering. What bothers businessmen Plumley said, a uncertainty They want conditions "predictable and ptottable so that they car. plan their own He said businessmen are ask ing: If the economy is being j steered by the government today, in what direction will it be.guided tomorrow? As an example, he cited Ken- nedy's commencement address at Yale University month in which the President appeared to be seeking a truce with the busi- ness community after the uproar that followed his jtrocg opposition to a steel price increase.

Engle said Congress did not create the ARA "to force rede- velopment medicine down the throats of areas that don't know they are depressed, that haven't applied for this federal assistance and don't want it." The program should be volun- tary; Engle said. "I supported the Area Rede- velopment he said in a let- :er to Hodges. "It has been Beneficial in alleviating economic depression in many areas. I hope overzealous bureaucracy will no- spoil H." Engle noted that the Trinity County Journal erf Weaverville Calif., had published an editoria headed: "Lie down and be de- pressed, damn you."
