Vanishing Treasury department chiefs are hopping mad at the man piloting the Eisenhower program through the House of amiable hard working Speaker Joe Martin Joe came out with a compromise plan for dropping excise taxes which will lose the treasury a cool one billion dollars and both Secre tary of the Treasury Humphrey and Assistant Secre tary Randolph Burgess are most unhappy urthermore they have communicated their views vigorously to the president who is having a session with Speaker Martin The issue involved is much more important than any clash between important personalities It illus trates how closely the present government deficit has been figured and how carefully the Treasury will have to tax in order not to go deeper in the red What happened was that Uncle Dan Reed 78 year old ruler of the House ways and means committee proposes ending excise taxes Excise taxes which now bring in three and a half billion a year are due to expire in April and Reed would not renew them However the Treasury feels that this money is des perately needed in order not to throw the budget fur ther out of balance So Secretary Humphrey proposes continuing these taxes after April Hoping to keep peace between the Treasury and the man who dictates over the tax writing committee on Capitol Hill and who incidentally is not easiest man to get along with Speaker Martin proposed a compromise He suggested splitting the difference and dropping a billion dollars worth of excise taxes Even this drop of one billion however gave Hum phrey and Burgess a jolt With income taxes re duced they are

the armless war vet who played the part of sailor "Homer in the movie Best Years of Our was telling President Eisen hower the other day about some of his problems as rehabilitation director of the World Veterans edera tion embrace all nations not dominated by Mos cow and you can well imagine the diplomacy that must be employed at our conventions when you consider that we have war vet delegates from such unfriendly nations as Israel and Egypt West Germany and rance and Italy and Yugoslavia" said Russell commented Ike suppose the competing groups sit on opposite no on the contrary we try to seat them to gether but first we try to arrange luncheons where delegations from antagonistic nations can air their views on a subject of mutual interest" Russell ex plained "At one of our meetings we arranged a luncheon between Egyptian and Israeli delegates at which the mutual problem of rehabilitation was dis cussed proved highly successful because both delega tions naturally were interested in improving the eco nomic stability of their homelands In a situation like that it always helps to get opposing factions talking about a noncontroversial subject of mutual The president remarked that he had once used somewhat the same technique at a meeting while he was president of Columbia university was a great deal of tension and controversy at this meeting until I introduced a completely neu tral subject 1 got the conferees talking vabout babies This was something everyone was interested in and liked to talk about With the conferees thus relaxed and in a friendlier mood we moved on to the impor tant agenda of the meeting" The Worry Clinic By Dr George Crane Matilda's case shows the value of your ideas in the proper kind of words The POSI TIVE attitude is far superior to the negative not just in business alone but even in medicine And it has proved itself for 1900 years in religion Case 314: Matilda aged 52 is a heavy set woman who recent ly entered a shoe shop to purchase a new pair of slippers the Manager later informed me of my clerks waited on Matilda But after he had showed her almost 50 pairs of shoes he still fit her properly "It was hot and he was not ah experienced man so finally he blurted out I can't fit you one of your biggcr'n the "Well Dr Crane this infuriated Matilda She al most exploded with hot words and denounced the clerk in no uncertain fashion "As she left the shop with this higher priced pair she paused to add a few criticisms to me but I mollified her asked her if I might not wait upon her myself saying I was sure I could find just what she wanted "Then I brought out a pair of shoes that were a litlte more costly than those my clerk had displayed "And I completely won her by smiling and say ing 'Why madame the only difficulty here is the fact that one of your feet is smaller than the she left the shop with this higher priced plir of shoes under her arm she looked disdainfully at my clerk "And when she had departed he came over and shook his head perplexed' "Then he said I get it or I told her the very same thing that you he was wrong for he had told her one of her feet was bigger than the other whereas I used the positive attitude you recommend in your column and told her one of her feet was smaller" 'si Moses vs Jesus Moses lived over 1200 years And he was a remarkable leader but he was much like Confucius" in that he stated things negatively Thus the famous Commandments contain many shalt Jesus on the contrary almost entirely ignored this negative statement of moral laws and told us instead to do POSITIVE things like feeding the hungry and healing the sick typified Christ whereas shalt not" was the keynote of both Moses and Confucius Please observe what a phenomenal difference this has meant or followers spread the pre cepts of Jesus over a wider area of the world in just 100 years than followers had done in 1200 years In fact within 300 years they had even converted the famous Roman emperor' Constantine the Great In modern times moreover this POSITIVE moral emphasis has proved its superiority even in the very home countries of Buddhism and Confucianism as well as Hinduism reedom vs etters Those negative faiths shackled mankind They also permitted the offering of babies as human sacrifices into the Ganges River amost till the be ginning of this century They fettered millions of mankind in eternal bond age in the caste system of India But the POSITIVE moral precepts of Christianity have freed the minds of men as well as their hands and feet or it builds up via hospitals and medical mis sionaries instead of tearing down It educates instead of starving minds via It is basic to our great Republic witli its Constitution which was predicated on that positive Golden Rule (Alwayt write

Listening Post GROUNDHOG DAY and according to legend the marmot will determine weather conditions for the immediate future The shadow business never is too reliable but then again neither are the forecasts of the experts As a matter of fact the experts have had a rough time this winter nailing down the antics of the elements BUSINESS EXPERTS figure that babies may have a hand in the cure of any major recession They reason that since people will go on having ba bies the population of the United States will continue to grow at its present howling pace Meeting the needs of all these new citizens will launch business and industry on another boom But of all the statistics which the slide rule boys like to project into the future as a basis' for their prophesies the birth rate can be the most fickle It fluctuates among nations and changes from one gen eration to another And it reacts sensitively to good times and bad In the both the marriage and birth rates went down as they usually do in bad times But the war and the postwar boom sent the mar riage and birth rates up again Business has a big stake in any change in the popu gait Population growth rates will determine how many cars are made how much clothing and food will be needed how many more schools will be built and how many more highways will be needed The baby it seems definitely holds the key to the future A COUPLE hotels in Philadelphia have set up a new plan to give a nickel to their restaurant patrons who drink coffee Guests are advised of the in this bit of verse attached to the menu: With the price of coffee over a 'dollar It looks "like everyone should holler So for staying away from this high priced brew passing the savings along to you Inside Labor By Victor Riesel Towards the end of the1 tumultu ous 1952 presidential campaign General Eisenhower was angered by Walter distribution of a picture leaflet which predicted that victory would bring with it the breadlines of the early Thir ties The leaflet was loaded with photos of the unhappy unshaven ragged jobless waiting four abreast for a soup handout The image of this leaflet must still rankle the President for once again he is furious over CIO charges that we are actually in a depression And word has gone out ofc the White House to take on Walter Reuther and the CIQ in a frontal attack and paste them with the and label At the same time the Administration aided by business leaders will hit the country with positive statements and action in an effort to show that the country is in good shape and will begin re absorbing its jobless by next fall This Operation Optimism is the first order of home front business for the next month The President and his cabinet believe they can hold the jobless to about 3500000 and then get most of them back to work Typical is a recent speech by Secretary of Health Education and Welfare Oveta Culp Hobby On Jan 23 she reported "When we think of the future in terms of certain of our importan (national of let us say a pro duction the prospect is bright has been estimated that: We need some forty billion dollars for schools and hospitals We heed some sixty billion dollars for highways We need some hundred billion dollars worth of Earlier in the speech she had said "In America in 1948 for example our production of goods and serv ices as over 246 billion dollars It has been esti mated that by six years from we will be producing 416 billions annually And this is a moder ate Mrs optimism is shared by many cautious industrialists who envision new horizons for industry from such innovations as for buildings (enabling skyscrapers to be walled up in a few weeks) and the use of waste heat from atomic reactors to heat residences These science fiction dreams actually in use right now Typical of the industrialists who think 1954 will be a terrific year is General Electric's vice president Dr Baker general manager of the Electronics Division in Syracuse The other day he predicted that there will be 550 television stations operating by an increase of 200 broadcasting centers To catch their shows Dr Baker forecast the sale of 5200000 regular TV sets and 100000 color receivers as well as a continued de mand for with an industry production of some 7600000 sets Because of the nature of our new military weapons the GE executive also saw high level of military electronics In terins of sales all this added up to the distribu tion of 5200000 regular TV units wth a retail value in excess of $1400000000 In addition he anticipates a $10000000 sale of color receivers The retail sales of radios will reach $23000000 The electronics industry according to Dr Baker will sell about $60000000 worth of two way radios in addition to microwave and carrier current apparatus Topping all this will be the sale of some $700000000 worth of electronic tubes in '54 I pick the electronics field and the words of this ex pert because the radio TV industry flourishes only
