f - •’ 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 ■ up. ! 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. HUM) IDE FARMS IN CHOWAN By C.

Among the latter are the follow ing: 1. Accelerate where practicable the construction of projects ,for which appropriated fupds are available. ! 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 business. • 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. formation and demonstrations on ! proper setting and pruning the ! young trees.

SHADES OF JULES VEfcNE —USS Gudgeon, flagship of the U.S. Pacific Fleet Submarine Force, gets an all-out welcome as she makes port at Pearl Harbor after traveling around the world in a sailing time between ports of 80 days. She’s the first American sub to make such a journey. Everyone not needed at the controls is topside to get a fireboat-squirting, whistle tooting welcome as a helicopter overhead drops 30 pounds of blossoms over the sub. Elapsed time of the cruise was 150 days, including time out to participate in various maneuvers. Total mileage for the round-the-world portion of the trip: 23,111 miles. Hock community has set approx imately 100 peach trees and 100 apple trees. He has been given a demonstration or, clipping the young trees for proper develop ment. There is a wonderful oppor tunity for increased fruit grow-, ing in Chowan County. Both j the soil and the climate are well! adapted for fruits acclimated toi this area. Prospective and inter-1 1 ested growers must remember j 1 and determine to do certain 1 things if these fruit plantings are to be successful. Trees must be properly spaced, j apple and pear trees 40 feet J apart, each way, peach trees 20 j feet apart each way and grape l vines 15 to 20 feet apart. Trees 1 must be properly set and pruned for proper development, pruning must be done each year. Trees must be properly fertilized. A careful spray schedule must be followed to control insects and diseases when the trees come in to bearing. Proper varieties must be selected in order to get ■ desired quality and the desired, length of harvest season. The county Extension office has bulletins, spray schedules ,and | complete information for distribu-1 tion. Extension agents Will give, demonstrations on setting, prun- 1 ing and other practices necessary.! All we ask is that growers call on us for such information and ser- ] vices.
