26 Are we on the slow downgrade to another 1933 Jobless jumped from 1640000 in October to 2700000 in January A billion fewer dollars are float ing around in daily sales than at the postwar peak in December 1947 Railroads textile mills shoe fac tories are either laying off work ers or working them shorter weeks Jumping unemployment figures have alerted economists in the de partment of labor department of commerce and social security ad ministration Lower Prices Government economists general ly agree todays events mean we are shifting to lower prices But they say this need not mean con tinuous unemployment Some where along the line they think large numbers of buyers should show up again as prices drop because they estimate Americans still have savings of 000000 Republicans in the house argue this view Several have referred to a Truman depression in the making Rep Charles A Halleck R Republican floor leader in the last congress says he doesnt want to contribute to undue pes simism but that many signs show a slackening in particular the drop in farm prices He thinks many policies advo cated by the Truman administra tion are creating a lack of con fidence not only among manage ment leaders but among farm ers small businessmen and wage earners Rep Earl Wilson R Ind told HELP for your HEARING TELEX HEARING CENTER B C MORRIS CO 504 Judge Bide Salt Lake City 41382 City State the house the Truman depression is on He was speaking about a re quest for more money for the U S employment service and pro tested that during the 80th Re publican congress there had been no such need to help jobless He said had we elected a Republican president we may not have had this unemployment today Government research shows that the dropping prices are spotty Social security experts say they hit luxuries such as furs and jewelry first They are now hit ting some clothes and shoes They have not yet hit the scarce and highpriced steel products Both prices and jobs began to drop in October Denied Increases Secy of Labor Maurice J Tobin testifying before a congressional committee said both textile and shoe workers in New England were denied further wage increases recently because the negotiators thought the industries couldnt take on added costs So far there have been no strikes in those groups The United Auto Workers has one General Motors may ease the drop in De troit It permits lower wages when the costofliving index drops Tobin says it has dropped about 2 in the past half year One government labor expert says labor union leaders are shift ing their concern to security management may be more willing to promise pensions for old people for the reason that pensions are a cost which can be put off Other Conditions Here are some other conditions which economists think could pre vent the severe drop which hap pened in 1929 1 Both labor and management know more about economics and are more alert to the danger of unemployment 2 Many more workers belong to trade unions and union leaders will resist too fast a drop in either employment or wages S The federal reserve now asks that people buying on installments pay down a third the price of an auto and a fifth the price of many house furnishings Any time such industries have real trouble the federal reserve could take off the downpayment rules to stimulate buying 4 The government now supports prices of some important farm products so they cant drop too far 5 The social security system now pays out small checks to workers over 65 years and for a time to workers who lose jobs

ob tained good results from simple and crude aircraft designs the analysis said that the Russians have now had more than four years in which to emphasize qual ity instead of quantity Mechanical People The article said that we must now look on the Russians as me chanical people with an evergrow ing interest in things mechanical and we must not ignore the brilliance of their weapons de signers Their

here Saturday night we find de mocracy seeking the truth Sen Thomas former member of the University of Utah faculty spoke at the 35th annual meeting of the American Association1 of University Professors in Statler hotel In an address on The Meaning of Intellectual Freedom the sen ate labor committee chairman asserted that such freedom can never be any freer than the bounds of its physical mental political and economic environments If we are to attain the ultimate which a free mind should offer we can do it only when the bounds which pin us down are made less narrow he said There are not many freedoms there is in reality only one freedom for the many are so closely related Perhaps it is better to call it mans free agency The Utah senator warned his listeners that freedom does not mean license in the realm of thought There is as much dan ger that will come from absolute and complete intellectual freedom as from any of the other free doms he cautioned Suspenders for Army
