he could do it cheaper Kyi said He was for everything but American agriculture and it wasnt mentioned The President said Rep Gross dragged in every other spending gimmick ever heard of and he would have to be a Houdini to promise more of everything at lower prices Sen Jack Miller Rlowa said there was little new in the Pres idents speech and if he expects passage of all the legislation he mentioned he has forgotten all he has learned during his long years of services in Congress Concerning Johnsons pledge to preserve the present gold value of the dollar Miller said The American people
