A wasteful and extravagant Adminis tration has been sitting on the necks of the people for 13 long years. Despite the fact that the war is over, there are no signs that the Truman administration plans to put a stop to this wild spending. Isn't. it astounding that today there are more people on the federal payroll than at the close of the war? And that isn't all of it. Plans are for| larger and larger expenditures in many departments of government. Read what Frank R. Kent said recently and then shudder while reaching for your pocketbook: "Not only are there more civilian jobholders on the payroll today than there were when the war ended, but there is no plan for re ducing them—quite the contrary. In addition, it is proposed to spend more in every department in the year beginning July 1, than was spent in the year ended June 30 last. A recent authoritative estimate is as follows: Agriculture, up 22.5 per cent; commerce, up 101.2 per cent; interior, up 47.5 per cent; justice, up 36.8 per cent; state, up 144.2 per cent; treasury, up 58 per cent; war (civil functions), up 111.1 per cent.

Yet months after the war's end, you still find it difficult to get many of the things yon want and should have. So, isn't this the time for all of us to take stock ... to learn a lesson ... to find out, if we can, what will cure the troubles we are having and prevent their recurrence? - Let's look ahead and agree on a program that will insure the full pro duction everybody agrees is the real answer to most of our problems. Suppose we begin by taking a good look at tlirce roadblocks to prosperity... ceilings limit production — goods just don't get made. GOVERNMENT SPENDING Continued huge government spending means continued high taxes. High taxes discourage production, hinder the creation of jobs, and leave you less to spend. ISN'T THIS THE WAY? The people, through Congress, can remove these roadblocks in the long range interests of all.. ; By establishing a labor policy that will treat labor and management exactly alike, and above all be fair to the public; By removing the shackles of price control on manufactured goods; By cutting down on government spending now and balancing the Federal budget by the 1947 fiscal year at a level of income and outgo that taxpayers can stand. Do yon believe this program is in the public interest? Your Representatives in Congress are the only ones that can put it into effect. Tell them how you feel about it STRIKES I Whatever their justice or injustice, strikes paralyze production, force people to use up their savings, and result in losses that can never be mad« np.

There is literally nothing in the Truman fiscal plans, as one man remarked, "to make any civil-service jobholder turn over in his grave." But the picture isn't all black, Those wno keep their fingers on the pulse of affairs in Washington that possibly during the last i half of 1946 most strikes will be seuleo, production will finally be well under way, prosperity will be poking its nose into the national picture, and that moderate abun dance should return during 1947, but not before.
