As it has been, the legislators
would first decide about the
spending. And then the hunt was
on for more taxes. And so the
taxes grow. And so also grows

Some sobering thoughts on the federal budget and how it
keeps growing have come from Budget Director Maurice H. Stans,
who Tuesday told members of the Chamber of Commerce of the
United States that if the spending progression of the past 10
years is maintained, this country would have a budget of $160
Billion by 1970.
Most persons would probably say this is impossible, but few
in 1930, when the budgiet was $3 Billion, would have predicted

and then climb to $80 Billion in this year of 1960. Stans pointed
out that the budget has had a 25-fold increase in three decades.
Every recent budget as been a record peacetime budget, and
next year’s, he added will be no exception. He estimated that
"built-in" spending increases will boost it to approximately $81
The “built-in" increase consist largely of programs voted
by Congress which start in a small way and then continue to
grow year after year. Once they are established, it is virtually
impossible to »op them. Every Congress adds its own share of
such programs, so tlye budget continues to climb. Even if
Congress were to start no new spending programs, it is unlikely
that any substantial reduction below the current $80 Billion
could be noticed for years.
Stans was critical of what he called “the cult of growth, the
economic faddists who believe In the miracle theorj of public
spending as a major spur to economic growth.” These spending
advocates he continued, contend that the nation’s future depends
on satisfying all the wants of the American people by federal
spending and borrowing “without and unhealthy inhibitions
about balanced budgets or big debts or inflation."
Referring to the possibility of a $160 Billion budget, Stans
remarked that he hopes it will not happen, "but we’ve shown that
we know how to do it.”
Wo have indeed. And unless the budget director’s warning
is heeded, we well may some day be groaning under its weight.

The Civil War Centennial
The Southern aristocracy started the Civil War. But the
people were its chief victims, paying for it as usual.
In Richmond, Va., the seat of the Confederacy, in the fourth
year of the war a pair of gloves cost $30, a pair of slippers $50,
$24 for six spools of thread, $32 for five hankerchiefs.
The barrel of flour rose from $200 to $500 in six months, and
reaching $700 in early winter.
Ten dollars for one head of cabbage, $5 for a quart of
potatoes. So low did the Confederate money sink.
The clot lies of all kinds became shabby. “The wonder is that
we are not naked, after wearing the same clothes three or four
years,” as one man wrote then.
“The lagging land proprietors and slave owners want to bo
captains etc. or speculators. The poor will not long fight for
their oppressors, the money changes, extortionists, etc. whose
bribes keep them out of service.’’ That is, they buy a substitute.
So the slaveholders war was a Lost Cause, as it was from
the very beginning. Still some did not learn the lesson that it
does not pay to deny human rights. It newer elevates anybody.
