Washington— As the Big Four
summit' conference approaches,
there is increasing interest in
the issue of an agreement on
banning nuclear weapons test
Last week a five-week recess
in the 10-nation disarmament
conference which was being held
in Geneva raised quite a few
questions over the possibilities
of a nuclear test ban agreement
at the summit conference which
starts May 16.
It appears that the ■disarma
ment conference feels that furth
er negotiations are unnecessary
up til after efforts have been
made by . the heads of govern
ment of' the United States,
France, Russia and Great Brit
It is flay sincere hope that
When President Eisenhower,
Premier Khrushchev, President
de Gaulle, and Prime Minister
MacMillan do meet in May that

I tuny realize that this is a

sincerely feel that without an

not include fool-proof controls—

If these cannot be effectively
detected I hope that it will not
mean that no agreement of any
kind can be reached.
Aside from the effects of ra
diation caused by tests them
selves, it seems essential that
some sort of agreement on ban
ning and controlling tests must
be reached. Certainly, if the
major powers of the world con-]

The contrast between the

illustrates the fact that mercy
without righteousness is as noth

aristocrats of righteousness and
passionately upheld the precepts
and traditions of their religion.
Before the first century no
group exceeded them in their
concern for morality and godli

Pharisees stand before us in the
New Testament in a very differ

The National Outlook
Business Sentiment Swings Upward
By Ralph Robey
Eight weeks ago this column
discussed the amazing and sud
den shift of opinion on the busi
ness outlook. The shift was
from almost unanimous opti
mism to something close to
pessimism for 1960. There now
has been another significant
change. This time it is back
A perfect example of this lat
est change was provided at a
dinner of- business men and busi
ness economists a few days ago.
At the dinner there were 26
business men and six economists
who expressed their views on
the current situation and out
look. Every single one of them
was optimistic for the immedi
ate future, and between them
they represented pretty well ev
ery industry in the nation.
What has caused such an up
ward trend in their views in a
few weeks? Probably the cor
rect answer is a hundred or a
thousand things. But the fol-|
lowing unquestionably have,
• Realization that the sharp
stock market decline was not:
based upon anything definite in
the business trend—that the de
cline was because the market
had become too high and must
have an adjustment. Along with
this goes the belief that we mayi
well have seen the low of the]
market for this year.
• Conviction that the wave of'
pessimism of two and three
months ago was unwarranted—
that 1 ' it was based upon tempor
ary factors and disappointment
over the failure of business to
do as well as had been forecast.
• Certainty that this Con
gress is not going to be as bad
as had been feared—that soniej
unwise bills may be passed and|
become law, but none of these,
will be of a character which will |
force the business trend down, I
or throw us into an immediate |
• Evidence that as the weath
er is getting better business is
Dirking up. This is especially
evident in retail sales, but it also
is true in almost every line,
even though we do not yet have
much national data which show

• Belief that a real and seri
ous effort will be made this fall
to elect conservatives to the
Congress—conservatives of both
parties and that there’s a
chance of sufficient success to
assure that the next Congress
will not be predominantly union
• Recognition that is belter
to have merely good business
than a boom —that a 6.1 or 6.2
million year is far
from a depression level, and the
same is true of 1.2 million pri
vate housing starts..
• Certainty that the worst of
the so-ealled tight money is over
—that while interest rates prob
ably will rise again, they will
not exceed the previous highs,
and those with good credit rat
ing will be able to get loans
without too much trouble.
This swing to optimism does
not mean that every business' or
even every- industry is going to
have great prosperity this year.
Neither does it mean that we
have solved our underlying
problems - international deficit,
foreign competition, labor mo
nopolies, bad tax system, too
much government spending, dan
ger of inflation, bad legislation,
and so on.
But the swing to optimism
does mean that over-all we
should have a good year and
that none ■of these problems
j should oiltplode ih our faces at
least Ruling the next several;
months.' Granted, it is no time
| for complacency, but if we all
Ido our part we should have a
gradually rising business trend
for thie remainder of 1960.
