WASHINGTON, Aug. 10-(P)--One
year out of it military harness', the
American economy is driving toward
a smashing $200,000,000,000 annual
production date.

Experts 'Predict
'46 CarOutput
Of 3,500,000
DETROIT, Aug. 10-(P)-Despite
current rncertainities regarding the
parts, equipment and materials sit-
uation, the automobile assembly
plants still have a fair chance of turn-
ing out 1,500,000 cars and: trucks in
the final three months of- this year
in the opinion of some industry ex-
perts.
If an approximately normal pro-
duction level is .reached during. the
year's final quarter total car and
truck output for 1946 would.- come
close to 3,500,000 units. Of these,
however, slightly more than 1,000,000
probably would be commercial ve-
hicles, leaving the production division
still far behind accumulated pas-
senger car orders.
Some sales chiefs, including., Jack
R. Davis of the Ford Motor Co. as-
sert the industry cannot make enough"
cars in the next twelve months to
catch up with demand. Others have
tried to convince their merchandis-
ing personnel that the effortless pro-
cess of selling automobiles will not
last indefinitely.
The trade publication Automotive
News, in its issue .tonorrow, will:say
that unless the present production
picture changes drastically total out-
put of passenger automobiles in the
United States this month will be only
about .25Q,000. unlt. -. ....

ident Truman's new anti-inflation
budget recommendations, predict a
fiscal year of production matching
the biggest wartime boom in dollar
volume of goods and services-1945's
$199,000,000,000 of war and peace-
time output combined.
This so-called "gross national pro-
duct" may be 15 per cent less in
physical volume than the war-time,
peak, however. Part of the climb
will be in prices. Many shortages will
persist.
Controls Pile On Industry
Industry is more deeply imbedded
in government controls than ever
was contemplated by the government
a year ago. Except for prices, the
controls are piling on ever thicker.
In some cases industry itself ap-
pears reluctant to let go of Uncle
Sam's apron strings. Some mass pro-
ducers of houses, for instance, want
Washington not only to guarantee
their sales but t8 lend, the original
investment.
Price Rises Expected by OPA
Foreign relief needs, the unsolved
housing crisis, the threat of infla-
tion-and above all the ravenous
appetite of expanding industries for
materials-make 'it' unlikely that the
government can take its finger out
of the econdmic pie for months ahead.
'The' No. 1 federal .concern is still
inflation.
Prices will rise under the tattered
price control law approved by Con-
gress. Food prices are uncertain.
Cotton textiles are up 16 .per cent

already - a $3,600,000,000 annual
drain on the consumer's pocketbook.
IaBut OPA says the full effect of the
law cannot yet be estimated. In-
creases for all manufactured goods
still remain to be calculated.
Commerce Secretary Wallace pre-
dicts a boom-and-bust. Today's "full
employment" is not the desirable
kind, he says, because it is based
on inflation. Wallace warns the
country to gird for a let-down in a
year or so.
Mr. Truman says both inflation and
depression can be avoided. "Produc-
tion is our salvation," he has pro-
claimed.
Wyatt Pushes Low Cost
Prefab Home Production
WASHINGTON, Aug. 10--P)--
Mass production of low-cost homes
from aluminum, steel, plastics and
concrete received a fresh push today
from Housing Expediter Wilson Wy-
att.
Despite a disappointing start this
year on the government program for
"production-line homes," aides of
Wyatt said they still were shooting
at a goal 600,000 "prefab" homes for
1947.
At the same time Wyatt polished
up an invitation to road builders,
the airplane industry, and other large
operators-facing post-war cutbacks
or restrictions-to join in the fac-
tory-built homes program.
