In 1930 In totalitarian and even more and demo cratic countries alike the economic structure Is burdened by the staggering cost of the arms race which has blotted out the bright hopes and expectations of November ll. 1918. when the World war ended. Many foreign nations are de voting nearly 50 per cent of their national budgets to arms costs, paying none of their arms bill out of current revenue. Excepting the United States, virtually every strong nation Is operating on a war economy, diverting capital and savings into non-productive enterprises and forcing an expansion of heavy industry well beyond normal peace-time requirements. This government itself is formulating a program cf greatly increased armament outlays. Many nations, particularly the dictator countries, have wiped out unemployment by rearmament. The question arises, the opinion of some economists, whether disarmament is possible without throwing the world into a depression far greater than the last. Political implications arms race have been called even more menacing. The Foreign Policy association, a private research organization, had this to say recently: For the democracies the ultimate cost of unlimited arma das of their free economies and the underlining of democracy itself." Many economists foresee no such strain In th' Immediate future for the United States, despite indications of heavy tn- expenditure* as the result of th*, national defense restudy now under war. However, one s-hool of thought holds that the United States can build and buy more battleships and battleplanes only at the cost of restricted expenditures for other purposes PRESIDENTIAL GET PEEK AT POSSIBILITIES TO entering fifth month of advance- future Tuesday Industry Regains nan vji _    VV    rrADflC    ®    ... ..........

Nov. 5 — Administration circles hoard today that President Roosevelt intended definitely to ask congress to authorize one of the world’s mightiest air fleets, numbering from 7,000 to 10,-000 warplanes, for the army. NUCLEUS ARMY His far-reaching plans to boLster national defenses were reported authoritatively to include also full war equipment as quickly as pos • sible for a nucleus army of 400,000 or more men. It was estimated that the program involved outlays next year j exceeding by well over $300,000,000 this year's appropriations for all militarv purposes, Including naval. A .separate "emergency' budget, for the new rearmament program was one device the president was reported to have under considers- , tion. Details of the new rearmament program w-ere hidden in confiden- j tial budget estimates, but rn well informed quarters it was believed the president's recommendations to congress early next year would include : 1. At least tripling the army air corps' present goal of 2,320 first line fighting planes, fixed in 1935. New planes would be added by mass production methods over a period of several years. There has been no hint of a proposal to increase further the navy's new goal of 3,000 planes, set in the expansion act. 2.

October figures, presenting a picture of sharp contrast with the rapid decline of industrial barometers in that month last year, showed the vast building industry far ahead of 1937 levels. Heavy construction awards, trade sources reported, were the largest for the month since 1929.

Building has been Industry s sleeping giant since 1931. Business men have waited for its reawakening as probably the strongest assurance of an enduring rise in employment and payrolls. Widely-spread October gains helped make the four-month climb out of the trough of the 1937-38 depression one of the fastest in years, Wall Street analysis noted. activity index UP The Associated Press weekly index of industrial activity dropped from a higii around IO# last year to 65.8 at the end of May. 1938.

ONE AMENDMENT UP- Bv The Associated Press Charges and counter-charges of responsibility for the country s economic woes cause last night from republican and democratic orators making last-minute appeals for popular supixirt at the polls Tuesday. Former President Hoover, speaking in Spokane, Wash., charged the Roosevelt administration with hamstringing itu own efforts to restore prosperity by the use of “coercive" methods. He made this appeal: “Give us the election of a new congress of indcpendent men nnd watch America come back." Across the continent at Greenwich, Conn., in his home state, Attorney General Homer Cummings appealed for support of the adminstration In an address entitled "America Must Not Turn Back.” His theme was much like President Roosevelt's of Friday night, that continued “liberal government" Is necessary to preserve new deal enactments.
