Anti-Inflation Powers Asked By President Annual Economic Report Given to Congress Tru- man declared today that American prosperity is riding a "wave or in- flation" toward tho peril of a "seri- ous" business slump. Keying his second annual eco- nomic report to a renewed plea, far legislative power to cope soar- ing prices, the chief executive told the Republican-controlled Congress: "The American people are keenly aware that Inflation is the dominant problem in our affairs." Demands Powers Mr. Truman used urgent words in demanding once again the full ten-piece kit of anti-Inflation tools which the lawmakers refused him during last fall's special session. He asserted that standby price, and rationing; authority are "need- ed, needed bnflly, and needed promptly." In addition to congressional ac- tion, the President called upon busi- ness to cut prices wherever possible, "foregoing a quick and dangerous excess profit In favor of long-run stability." And lie urged labor to "mod- crate" In its third-round wage de- mands. Nor did he yield any ground on taxes. He insisted that the treasury surplus now In sight for next June must be used to lower the national debt, not cut tax rates as the Republicans are determined to do. And Mr. Truman repeated his proposal for a a person of living" Income tax cut to be mads up by higher taxes on corporations.

A three per cent gain Jn pro- duction. Lost year's target of five per cent was narrowly missed seven per cent more goods was turned out but fewer services, such as medical, laundry and the like, were made available. 2. Jobs for as a year- long average. This is above the 19-47 figure even though last year's June peak topped the so- called "full employment" goal of CO.000.000 Jobs. 3. The start of a broad social. public welfare, resources conserv- ation and industrial development program designed to immunize the nation, from "periodic depressions" and to provide Americans with "richer and more satisfying lives." More Income Needed More income for consumers will be needed, Mr. Truman said, to koep production up when exports fall off. when credit shrinks, and when sav- ings arc reduced, and "more con- sumer income must be accompanied by better income distribution." He continued: "Within ten years, maximum em- ployment will mean Jobs or more. "To raise the Individual to the highest level of productivity and to provide outlet for the Increas- ing part of the labor force which technological changes may displace from thc mass production industries, we need improved services Jn educa- tion, health and social security."

Farm policy, he asserted, should aim at a ten per cent increase in agricultural output in thc decade ahead through soil conservation. (Continued on Pago 14, Column 5) ECONOMIC REPORT
