Transcript e to be an- tlll.in to 290 ivc il in lhe ■ - represent and I hope ' ■ t li i 11 reason taxes of I think it's too new for us to know whether or not it has a general application. There arc industries outside the auto- mobile thai have had ibis kind of a program in effect for a long time the meat-packing industry, For instance. Of course, Mr. Reuther'- pattern was nol the patient thai finally emerged from the negotiations. He only wenl part way on it, and m.w it's gol to -land the test of the attitude '.I the states in their willingness to adjust their unemploymenl compensation programs to it. So, I think it'll be some time before that thing -hake'- down into anything like a permanent pattern. BAYLESS: Indeed, we don't bene GAW anymore, it's nnw SI P, supplemental unemploymenl payments. That's right. BAYLESS: What i- the attitude of the corner merchant iii .(iiii- hometowns in Utah? Oh. I would say thai the attitude ol the ordinary merchant is thai il i- ei burden that's too heavy fnr industry to carry- and I don't ihink he's thinking of il in terms of potential added purchasing power frnm his customers. Ill 111 IK.II: With the seeming acceptance of the "new look" by SO many of the officials here ill Washington, will it not be difficult lo continue a high burden to tbe taxpayer on defense work? I think it will become mine difficult as lime goes mi, bul thai involves nut onl) iln- question nf the gross cost of defense, hut it involves the problem of re-tailoring our whole defense establishment to new weapons ami changing pat- terns in warfare, and as we- go forward I ihink there is ei gnml chance lhal we mav he able to reduce that burden on thai heisis. BAYLESSi Hut thirty billion dollars today will not be quite the burden in a bigger economy tomorrow. That's righl. PRINA: Senator Bennett, concerning the Eisenhower road-building proposal, do you believe that was held up partially because some of the members of Congress feel thai it should be saxed for the rainy day, so to speak, when the economy may he in a descent of some sorl, rather than to go ahead with it now despite the tremendous needs for new roads? No. I haven't bad anv feeling of lhal kind. I ihink il gol hogged down in straight political differences; as in whn was tn gel ihe ircdil and how il was tn he- financed. Ill lill 11.11: And now. Senator Bennett, here are the three prize-winning questions from our listeners: First, can we go on indefinitely, giving money lo all the nations of the world without hurting our economy and bankrupting our country? 'I course, wc can't, hut as mir own economy increases in ~'"'. ih. proportionate importance of the few billions lhal *e are spending to support the military establishments (-broad continues to decrease in importance. HURLEIGH: The next winning question is in regard to our agricultural economy. Farm income has declined steadily for the peest two .ears. How long do vou think this can continue before it affects the rest of our economy? Well it i- expected lhat net farm income will ilecline -i\ "undred million dollars ibis year, emd at the same time the 'otal national economy lias increased eighteen billion, or "■irty times that amount. So. I think it's gning lo turn a-outid within a year or so. bul lhe presenl drop is not Bouijj in have inn serious em effeel mi the total economy. Ill HI IK.II : Now lor the third winning question: Senator, do you lllillk mergers of big industrial corporation- are a healthy thing for our economy? ™ell, | don'l ihink von eem take mergers as a whole and ••> the- .,,,. healthy or unhealthy. Each one has tn be examined on ils own merits. Some are' gnml. some arc heul. *•*•••••***•••****•** Totalitarian Voice By STEPHEN VINCENT HI Ml ) on mistake me. Others have often made the same mistake Often and often and in many countries. I never play upon a people's strength: I play upon their weaknesses and fears. I make their doubts mv allies and my spies I have a most convincing mask of peace Painted by experts for one kind of sucker Ind for another I m a businessman. Straight from thc shoulder, talking trade and markets. Im! much misunderstood. I touch this man upon his pocketbook, I ha! man upon liis hatred for his boss, That man upon his fear; I offer everything, lor offering's cheap. I make no claims until I make the claims. I m always satisfied until I'm unl. Which happens rather rapidly in those II Im think I could lie satisfied with less Than a dismembered and digested icorld. 1/v secret weapon is an secret weapon : It is to turn all men against all men For my own purposes: it is to use Good men to do my work without their knowledge— Vo/ only the secret traitor and the spy; lt is to raise n question and a douhl II here there leas faith. 11 is to subjugate Men s minds before their bodies feel the steel; li is to use III envy, all despair, all prejudice For my own in irk.

I nun I be beaten By hiding in the dark and making faces. And certainly I never nill be beaten By those a ho rather like my kind of world. Or. ij not like it. think that it must come. Those who have wings and burrows in the ground. For Tin not helling only on the tanks. Thc guns, the planes, the bombers, But on your men division and disunion.
