(UJB)—The government moved ahead today with plans to relieve the women’s hosiery shortage after announcing a new price program to get more men’s clothing onto retail shelves. With both Congress and the White House getting protests from stock fogless women, the Civilian Production Administration was drafting a .plan to guarantee, through allocation, 1.500,000 pounds j of rayon yarn monthly to hosiery j manufacturers. CPA is expected to take this step In about two weeks after meeting j with representatives of rayon producers. The plan would raise total monthly J production of rayon stockings to j about 18.000,009 pairs. Production of j nylons is now running around 30,-000,000 a month. Some Women “Piggish" A CPA official said present nylon production itself was enough to give every woman a pair but that some “piggish” women are buying up everything they could find while others got none. The OPA stepped into the acute shortage of men’s clothing Sunday night by announcing long-awaited revised price schedules designed to end hoarding by manufacturers and get more lower-cost apparel on the market. OPA said its new program would wipe out inequities in clothing prices by substituting a new cost-pius-markup formula for the “price freeze” now in effect. It also restricts manufacturers to their highest priced line for 1942 but allows a 5 per cent increase to cover higher costs. On Current Costs Under the plan, manufacturers of men s and boy’s tailored clothing will be permitted to base their prices gen- j erally on current rather than March. I 1942. costs as in.the past. At the same time, however, , they must return to the average markup of 1942 I instead of using generally higher I 1945 markups. The result, OPA said, may be a slight- increase in the cost of lower- j priced lines—a step necessary to spur production—but will bring a com- [ pulsating cut in mbre expensive j items. Thus, it said, there will be “no substantial change” in overall j prices. Louis Rochschild, executive director j of the National Association of Re-1 tail Clothiers and Furnishers, said ; several days ago that at least 700,000 men's and boy’s suits were among “hoarded” stocks. A C. I. O. official charged 4,000 OOO suits had been held up.    I Battle Shapes Over Control of U. A. W. Politics Charged $    —Calif urnian-N.E. A.

Despite the conference agreement, key members said it is now’ certain the House will vote to trim OP As powers. These legislators declared that a sizable majority will support continuance of the price control agency beyond its June 30 expiration date. But, they told newsmen, pressures against present OPA policy have mounted so high, both in and out of Congress, that there is no doubt several modifications will be made. President Truman has called for extension of OPA without change. Most of the restrictions, the lawmakers said, will toe designed to put emphasis on production, rather than holding fast to the price line. * Other changes, they added, will include a switch of some control authority to agencies specifically concerned with certain products, such as the agriculture department for food Items.
