WASHINGTON. — THE CONGRESSIONAL cheering ever the Teheran announcements ran little beyond the number of decibT to be expected at such events * - a fact which is all repealing ol the common inner interpretation accepted here
Ak all have been .'•ayir.g, the announcements present a picture of a friendly family agreement on all questions b‘tween Roosevelt, Stalin ann Churchill, which marks gnu progress; and ratoes great hopes True also, i number of question-marks in the Hull M scow agreements were erased,
Mr Roosevelt got In a mention of freedom from fear and want, which previously had been missing, and beaner emphasis was laid at last upon the Atlantic charter ideal: cf Democracy with free choice cf government: by a1! Peeples

Some commentator^ have attempted -to describe it as tax on ‘economic business," but it is far more than that, it us a levy against all people who pay taxes
The opposition wants higher prices, which Is likewise an unde.Traole goal for the great majority of the people who pay them.
