The National Outlook
Ctbncrfa# SetttMent tii Washington !
By. Ralph Robey
<V ' " -
Admtnfetnrtion leaders are
changing their attitude ,'pn the
cuh-ent business downturn. The
change may not be complete, but
it clearly is in process. ,
It will be recalled that at the
beginning of the year it was the 1
contention of the Administration
that the forces of recovery would
sopn get us back on the upgrade, j
This conclusion was reflected in
the President’s State of i the Un-|
ion Message, in his Budget Mes- 1
sage, and in his Economic Repott.
Since then it has been re-stated
in one Way or mother by almost |
every Cabinet Merrfber. — In a’
word, that was the official posi-j
tion 'of the Administration, there 1
Was po real deviation from it.
It still may be the official po- j
sitlon of the Administration. At!
least it has not been repudiated, j
Nohe the less, two events of the :
pagt few days make it appear that
the number of jpersons ' holding
such a view is declining;
First was the introduction of a
resolution in the Senates l|y Ma
jority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson.
It had the endorsement of the:
majority of the Senate, including
eighteen Republicans. It. stated j
that Congress thinks there should
be a stepping-up of expendi
tures on civil and military’pro-'
grams for which apprppijations
have been made. Bfecit of this!
resolution had been a •vfiijle host
of bills, from both sides 4>f the
aisle, providing for lprgaj;|tpenil-,
ing for roads, houses,^.watershed
development, and ev
ery thing else anyone’couW- dreain ■
Some of these bills, and some
of those sponsoring the resolu
tion, unquestionably were moti
vated by political considerations.
That, however, does rigg provide
a complete explanation: “'Some of
the bills and some of U|e motiva
tion reflect a genuine iefiviction
that it is time government step
ped in with positive action. .
Second, two -days after*the res
olution was introduced Presi
dent sent a letter to the' Reoubli
can Minority leader of both the
Senate and House. ThiTTStter, it
was explained, was nose
to the Johnson resolution, but it
prettv well served that- jnmose.
In his letter the President took
a side-swipe, at,.“the sudden up
surge of pump-primine
sufch as setting up of huee fed- •
eral bureaucracies ...” Then Mr.

Eisenhower summarized what thej
Government has done up'-to this ‘
time and what it proposes to do.
Among the latter are the follow
1. Accelerate where practicable
the construction of projects ,for
which appropriated fupds are
! 2. Increase appropriation re
quests of $lB6 million for certain
j “water resource projects”,
i 3. An additional S2OO million
has been released for the stimu
lation of moderate priced homes.
| 4. Within a few days the Con
' gress will be requested to amend
j the Highway Act to suspend cer
tain expenditure limitations. The
'• amount involved is $2.2 billion
j for the calendar years 1958-61.
5. The military department has •
j been instructed to place all possi
i ble contracts in labor Surplus
areas, with first priority to small
6. A program is under way to
make funds available for more
veterans homebuilding. •
7. The Secretary of Labor has
i been requested to present a “pro- :
posal which would enable eligi- '•
i ble unemployed individuals to re- <
ceive weekly benefits for a long- :
er period than is now permitted i
under state laws and thus enable
them to continue to seek jobs i
with a greater measure- of securi- j
ty.” The most common State 1
limitation on unemployment com- ;
pensation at present is 26 weeks.
It is reported the President will '<
I recommend that Congress enact 1 j
i Federal legislation to standardize 1
■ and increase this to 39 weeks. i
There are too many open ends
in this program to put a defi- .
nite dollar amount on it, but un- ,
questionably the total would run j
into billions. And bear in mind •
this is just the new program— j
new in the sense that it covers, :
according to the President, only ,
items which have been specificai- ,
ly developed since February 12. (
It it worth noting, too, that ;
President Eisenhower ended his (
letter with this sentence: “ . . .
other programs and measures are
under study and, as circumstanc- ,
es may require, will be admini
stratively set in motion or pro
posed to the Congress.”
Clearly this is not a program,
nor are those the words, of an
Administration which is still con
’vinced the current recession will
end soon of his own accord.
