we have our sails set right KN INCREASING NUMBER of not all of them worrywarts by any concerned about the mounting evidence that numer ous nations in our old world including Russia appear to be moving ahead faster than we are in their production and economy Thats what Id like to visit with you about in this com men tary with a minimum of at tention to the recent steel in dustry unpleasantness But be fore I start let me make one fact crystal clear I recognize full well that percentages o gain dont have much meaning unless you take into accoun the economic base from which the figuring is done In the case of Russian stee production as compared with ours by way of example we start with abase production of around a hundred million tons a year whereas the Rus sians started with 40 or 50 mil lion A gain of 10 million tons a year for the Russians wouk be 20 per cent a gain of 10 million tons would be only 10 per cent for us To neglect this in ones cal dilations is as misleading as the all too

industrial nations are short o workers 2 The American economy of which we have been so justly proudIS moving upward at a slower rate than Western Eu ropes and Japans A growing number of thought ful Americans are raising the question whether the economic thinking which fastened itself on United States three decades ago doesnt stand in need of some drastic overhauling Many as a matter of fact have concluded that it right now Free enterprise had been free up to that time The govern ments roie was that of um pire not dictator Then came the depression A President who had won the election by promis ing greater economy found himself confronted with a pros trate economy and millions of jobless FDR had a change of mind Since business wasnt getting the economy off dead center he decided the governmenl must do it And he turned to the economic theories of John Maynard Keynes the well known but always controversial British economist Spending was at the core oJ the Keynsian formula Pump priming became a household word The government sought deliberately to place money in the hands of the people by spending more than it took in Interest rates were lowered ar tificially to encourage borrow ing Taxes were used to leve incomes The national debt started mounting How well this approach indeed whether worked at and still is a debatable question While we emerged from the hopelessness of the depression unemploy merit never got below the eigh million mark until we began preparing for World War II The Keynes pattern of Big Government became woven int our economic fabric Its stil

WASHINGTON AP Presi dent Kennedy and British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan ap pear to be broadening their joint approach to summit diplomacy in a move toward more informal contacts with Soviet Premier Khrushchev This seems to be one of the chief results of the weekend White House conference between the American and British leaders Another reported result is agreement to soften as far as possible US and British conflicts of interest over reshaping world wide trade patterns on Britains entry into the European Common Market In a communique Sunday Ken nedy and Macmillan blamed the Soviet Union for the current seies of US nuclear weapons tests and pledged to work for dis armament and a ban on testing The criticism of the Soviet Union was muted and indirect and ap parently reflected a desire by Kennedy and Macmillan to keep on good terms with Khrushchev The summit maneuver presum ably reflects the same attitude and toward future weeks ratherthaiv heads of government meeting I fact it was learned that one ob jectiye Kennedy and Macmillan have in mind is to establish a pattern of talking with Khrush chev occasionally without having to Have a big formal conference They think it should be possi ble one weilinformed diploma explained to have more flexi bility in suinmit get together from time to time without having a huge internation al circus British information denied tha Macmillan has any plan to nisi off to Moscow and British and American officials both said the present moment is not ripe fo summitry The statement did however open the door to nev series of topleve
