GM Extends
Franchise
Agreements
WASHINGTON (R') - General
Motors, acting to meet charges
'that it has been highhanded with
its retail auto dealers, yesterday-
engthened its franchise agree-
ments with them.
The agreements will now run for
five years instead of one.
A Senate subcommittee had
heard testimony that the short
term agreement wa-s a threat
hanging over the dealers. Several
dealers testified their contracts
had been canceled abruptly on GM
complaints they hadn't sold enough
cars or had not handled their
business the way the higher-ups
preferred.
Retailers Under Pressure !
Some retailers also said they
were put under pressure to accept
models and accessories they 'did
not want.
Harlow H. Curtice, president of
the huge manufacturing corpora-
tion, announced the new move at
the resumption of Senate hearings
which he said had produced mis-
leading" testimony and left the
public "grossly misinformed."
He said all 17,000 GM car and
truck dealers are being notified
that, barring any objection on
their part, current sales agree-
ments will be extended to 1960.
The dealers, he added, may pull
out at any time on 30 days' notice.
Curtice 'Impelled' to Act
Curtice said as a result of pub-
licity given statements made to
the Senate's Antitrust and Mon-
opoly subcommittee he felt "im-
pelled to do what I have not:
considered necessary heretofore-
namely, to formalize a long-term
reiatinnship with our dealers.

Wilson Expects No Major Change
In New Budget of Next Fiscal Year
GET'I'YSBURG, Pa (A') --- A near-final decision to set the new
defense budget at about 34% billion dollars was reported reached
yesterday by' President Dwight D. Eisenhower and his military and
budget experts.
That i sroughtly the rate of defense spending for this fiscal year.
Secretary of Defense Charles E. Wilson said he expects "no major
change" in the total of the new budget - for the new fiscal year
beginning next July 1.
Since defense takes about two out of every three dollars the
government spends, there appeared to be dim prospects that the
administration would be able to recommend any sizeable tax cut to
Congress. The lawmakers, of
