Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - June 9, 1939, Mason City, Iowa H I r UE M ft ART o fP r or i r A coMP PCS uoiMes i A NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME VOL XLV THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS ASSOCIATED PKESS MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY JUNE 9 1939 MAJON CITY THE BRIGHT TEHS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 208 ICING PAYS HOMAGE TO WASHINGTON NEWS BEHIN THBTO Vaul Mai Ion Spend Program Shifts to Heavy Industries new spending program is shifting to an extent of roughly about 5680000 000 into the heavy goods indus tries Hoses running from the treas ury trough are being quietly changed in the a p p ropriations now being made by congress so that beginning July I tile hose lo cons umers goods will run again rough ly about S335 000000 less an nually into that line of business clothes food tobacco andor beer etc The hose to the air planes motor cars and battleships carry something around more than this year into those heavily depressed lines It means that much more gov ernment exhilaration for manu facturers and dealers in the heavy goods that much less for the merchants mail order houses cigaret manufacturers etc But even with the shift the new deals emphasis will still remain on the consumers goods as Mr Roosevelt told the In a general way the new ration will be about 5 hoses to 3 in favor of consumers goods as compared with 5 to 2 this year From Defense Needs The figures are rough because singularly no one in the govern ment has computed them The new spending program seems to have grown economically un planned like Topsy or at any rate like her not specifically arranged for economic purposes It appears to have sprung main ly from the popular necessity of more national defense and sec ondarily from a very broad but unspecific administration desire to provide a mite more balance in the flow from Mr spigots But not a single govern ment department has to date broken down into specific figures the trends of its flow o money into specific business cept WPA and PWA Nor has any computation been made as to who will get the total detailed benefits economically from the spending program In fact as far as the government is concerned no announcement has yet been made that there is a new program or that it is any dif ferent frorn those of the past six years a Change Is Computed Only known computation that has been made of the shift is the following breakdown of appropri ations made by congress It is the result of an extensive personal survey in which specific figures were available only for the relief outlays PWA and WPA Unof ficial but authoritative estimates were worked out carefully for most of the other departments but a few iMvy and interior depart ments had to be based on stud ied authoritative guesses Yet it shows where the money is going where it has gone and where it is shifting In short it indicates the new dea is doing in its major but most be clouded endeavor as lollows in millions of Durables
