Plans Campaign for Wage Boosts Administration to Draft Bills on Rationing, Controls By Jack Bell An administra- tion move to submit its own bills on the most controversial parts of President Truman's anti-inflation program and an impending C.I.O. wase boost drive touched off a new- cost of living battle" In Congress today. Although Senator Robert Taft seek creases early next year was described as "expected" by some Republicans, but they said this development will complicate congressional considera- tion of cost ol living proposals. Some Democrats on the other hand took the view that it might speed action on Capitol hall. However, C.I.O. President Philip Murray said in announcing the new campaign late Tuesday, that he and his lieutenants look for no ac- tion by Congress during the special session to keep prices down. Meeting newsmen after a day- long session with his nine vice-presi- dents, tho white-haired union lead- er declared that the C.I.O. "is de- termined to lighten the unbearable economic burden which has been Imposed upon the people." "In tho face of the present level of profits for American Induntry, this objective can bo achieved with- out any Justifiable Increase in prices." Some of C.I.O. mem- rB already have negotiated third round pay hikes and other unions are In the process. Murray said he hopes It will not be "necessary" to have strikes to win the Increases and added each International union will de- cide how much to seek. Almost simultaneously with Mur- ray's announcement, responsible administration officials disclosed that two bills have been drafted to: 1, Provide for price-wage con- trols as well as authority to ration scarce cost of living items and critical materials, if voluntary price and distribution agreements cannot be obtained. 2.

The current acted upon separately, after which there will be a vote on the bill as a whole. There were some indications that the threc-wcek-old wave of strikes was beginning to recede and one highly placed neutral official went so far yesterday as to say he be- lieved tho communists were losing their first big offensive In the. "cold war" in France. Sabotage on Increase Even so, and before the reported train wreck at Arras, Incidents of sabotage and of potential bloody violence appeared on the increase. Automobile workers on strike In Paris used a tractor to butt their way into a motor plant In an ef- fort to oject police. They failed.
