The Economy * .
After several years of high ac-
tivity, economists and government
officials have begun to note in
recent months a shift in the na-
tion's economic activity.
Opinions vary" widely on how
much the economy is going to slow
down next year, but most observers
agree 1958 will witness some type
of recession. Economists have
pointed to downturns in produc-
tion, business spending, new orders
from manufacturers, personal in-
come, retail sales and government
spending to support their beliefs
of a recession.
The actual nature of the decline
or its duration is still a, big ques-
tion mark, but the general feeling
was expressed before a House com-
mittee by Malcolm Bryan, presi-
dent of the Federal Reserve Bank
of Atlanta, who said, "Indications
are . .. that the sense of exurber-
ance has gone out of the economy."
The Race for Space ***
From Moscow came an an-
nouncement which said: "The first
satellite was successfully 'launched
in the U.S.S.R. on Oct. 4.
Then on Nov. 3 the Russians put
a second satellite into an orbit
around the earth.
The events climaxed a year of
missile talk that was highlighted
by Russia's claim of developing an
Inter-Continental Ballistics Mis-
sile-a claim that has been vindi-
cated by the Sputniks. The arti-
ficial moons have worried the free-
world greatly, leading some West-
ern .officials to say the United
States may be years in catching
the Soviets in rocket development.
But the Sputniks have spurred
the United States ahead in rocket
work. Government officials have,
ordered intermediate range bal-'
listic missiles into production; re-
moved restrictions on overtime
work for many of its scientists and
moved to prepare for greater ex-
penditures for defense, while the
nation has begun to take a search-
ing look at its educational system.
President's Strobe .. .
With the nation just beginning
to realize the full significance of
the Russian feats, the news 'came
from Washington on Nov. 25 that
President Eisenhower had suffered
a "chill" and had been ordered to
bed by his doctors.
The next day the White House
announced he had suffered a mild
stroke and would require "a period
of rest and substantially decreased

President Eisenhower's recovery
from his third major illness in 26
months appeared to be rapid.
But his illness came at a time
of political crisis in * the world
'when strong and active leadership
from the West is being called for
to meet the challenge of the Soviet
Union. Since his other two illnesses
coincided with political lulls in the
world, the effect of his stroke on
the position of the free-world is
still to be learned.
