It went unnoticed by Iho Senate House conferees seeking agreement on Hie military procurement Bill who allowed cuts in vital am ballistic safeguards to go unrest red. The Senate version was retained barring funds for free world forces willing to fight in the anti communist struggle in indo Clirina. 9 but we can rest assured hint the . Unwilling ass to stand up to soviet threat did not go unnoticed by the commissars of the politburo.

Libby a retired Navy vice Admiral concludes that there Are people who arc concerned Over the survival of the United Stales and of world Freedom but somehow we have not succeeded in gelling our message to the Congress. Is there someone standing Between the news said the congressmen blame or. Nixon the now York times editorialized that the Nixon administration is ultimately More to blame for Hie strike against general motors than either the company or the workers. The Good Gray old lady reasons Hal the administration Lias failed to curb the wage Price spiral. So blame or. Nixon. The president is faulted for playing economic Ostrich by not even Irving to Jawbone workers out of seeking inflationary wage hikes.

It Hie times is interested in jaw boning Why does t it suggest that the Congress freeze wage s and prices that would be to obvious would t it just As the limes suggestion is Loo thin to hold reason. The Good Gray Liberal Sheet might conic closer to inc Mark if it reminded All unions that unconscionable demands on Industry can result in nothing More than a continuing upward spiral in inflation. If Iho upturn in the Economy can be termed Only and if that upturn is in danger of becoming a downturn once again it is not conceivable that the administration so would stand alone when blame is being dished out.
