AS HIS NEXT TASK .Measures Seen Necessary to Counteract Recent Drastic Deflation Officials I ncertain How to Proceed; Congress May Force Action* WASHINGTON. April IO—GJP' -The next ba te task lacing President ■ Roosevelt is to lift prices. Pre sure for action to this end is growing on all sides in the form of I talk for inflation. Officials recognize frankly that measures are necessary to conteract : the drastic deflation which lifts continued through Hie first few weeks of I the new administration as a result of : locking up of billions of dollars of bank deposits and of drastic curtailment of government expenses. They are uncertain how to proceed. Congress may force the issue In-j flationists in the Senate are talking about testing their strength through amendments to the farm bill. Demands for action are based on j tho contention that business will not expand until prices start up. Some in the administration want to wait in the hope that natural causes will ] start, Hie climb. They point to current rises in wheat, hogs and other farm. products. They count on impending passage of the farm relief bill to support this tendency. They think this, plus the spurt in some lines caused by heavy beer sales, may prime the economic engine. Others, notably Secretary of Agriculture Wallace, believe more aggressive artificial restoration is needed. Two mad) proposals are urged. One is a public works bond Issue of at least $5,000,000,000. This is favored bv men like Senators Wagner, Dem, N. Y , and LaFollette, Repn., , Wis. Its advocates believe such a fund devoted to self-liquidating projects would provide employment and business activity which would speed tip circulation of money. The second major proposal is for cutting down the value of the dollar. This is urged bv a group of business men including such figures as James H Rand, Jr, of Remington-Rand; Frank Vanderlip. the former banker, and Phillip K Wrigley. This group is lobbying aggressively in Congress and among members of the administration. The amount of gold in a dollar Is fixed by law. This group would restive that amount. It would, in other words, shorten the yard-stick by which values of commodities are measured. More money would be required to buy a given article. This group argues if such a step .were taken, or were even thought to be imminent, the public would rush to buy before prices went up and in that process business activity would Jump rapidly. ACCUSE!)
