its immediate salvation in increased payrolls and Decreased farm production was a di rect challenge to aroused majorities in both Houses The speech nevertheless was con sidered by capital observers as second in importance only to President Roosevelt s inaugural address in which he outlined the broad scope of his recovery plans Wallace prom ised higher agricultural prices in a lew months specifically in January and said they might be achieved in a few weeks Market reaction to the Wallace speech infuriated congressional infla tionists For whatever cause com modity and stock markets

congressional inflationists that refuse to discuss greenbacks for publication agree privately that the printing press money is what they now are after A 53000000000 green back issue with provision for
