GREEN renewed White House plea for "many" indus- tries to lower prices and trim profits went out to business today together wfih urging 'or a policy ol price competition." President Truman's three-man council of economic advisers de- clared in its second annual report that today's high-level economy can be supported by "somewhat artificial through 1948 or longer." Should Look Ahead But businessmen should look nhead, the report cautioned, to times when abnormal export and military dtmands, pent-up short- ages bad crops no longer buoy UP die lisarkct. Henev the council said, businessmen now should seek a pattern of prices and production that will maintain a "stable equili- brium ot a hiph production econ- other words, prosperity without booms and busts, "Real price the council asserted, "means the lowest pr'ce consistent with a lair return In u stnble economy, rather than the price that the traffic will bear in an unstable economy." Housing Industry The presidential advisers picked tils housinj industry as perhaps "the best illustration of the need for keener market analysis, and for a rmicrt more realistic pricing, so thitt maximum production may be sustained." "While we tire now producing housing or ;in extremely hlnh rnte. ini-ttsuied by prewar standards, this production x x x is roncrnlralc-d ;ilmost enliiely on meeting the needs or ele.MiTS of those Jn the up- per licome brackets." the council reported Aliovc Income Tc Ihe extent that homes for poorer families are bem- erected, it u-ent on, the cost is so dispropor- tionate to income that "economic some day will confront the hi'mr-buyer. Thus the price pattern "docs not augur well for huh level-s of housing production yhen the thin luxury market is saturated." As Tor a "stable equilibrium" of prices, income and values generally, the council said this cannot be at- tuinu-.l by merely pressing: tor "pro- duction, more production and still jnwre j reduction. "It seems clear that in reaching thK equilibrium many industrial prices must come down, at least In relation to other prices.

A starry- eyed. blonde young woman billed modestly as "Margaret Truman. had the nation's capital lit her feet and the Urges New Canal Outside Panama BULLETIN WASHINGTON Gen. Prank T. Hines, ambassa- dor to Panama said after a con- ference with President Truman today he believes an agreement will be reached with Panama for the United States to have mill- ton1 bases there. The Panama assembly reject- ed last night an agreement for the United States to leave 14 military bases on Panamanian soil. WASHINGTON Rep. En- gel m-Michl suggested today that the United States construct a new Atlantic-Pacific canal outside Pan- ama if that nation Insists upon de- njing defense bases there. Enael, chairman of the House Ap- propriations subcommittee on de- Tense. told reporters: Influenced by Communists "There is no doubt in my mind but iv hat the act of the Panama national assembly was influenced at least in part by Use Communist movement in the canal zone." The Panama assembly voted down last night an agteernent allowing the United States 14 leased military on Panamanian soil. American government officials sai.i United States forces will con- tinue to use the bases despite the assembly's vote. They explained that a 1942 agreement for their use runs until the final peace treaties of world a-ar II are signed. Disputes Agreement Panama disputes Lnat Interpreta- tion of the 1942 agreement, Engel critics might say what they pleased, whidi that if Panama continues its after waie of in present attitude, "it leaves us no al- the 23-year old Singer's j tenmke but to look to new canal father, the President, joined beam- constitution Hal! where Miss Truman wound up her coast- to -en? st concert tour before a celebrity -studded audience of 4.000 last night, Practically everybody who was anybody In Washington was court In evening dress, and WOHMJK with enough ermine on their backs to quanintee a white Christmas.

There have been proposals in the past that the United States con- struct a canal through Ntcanqruan territory.

"Miss Truman's tone is so constricted that it is barely pos- sible to tell what her natural voice is like." Miss Truman's teacher is Mrs, Thomas J. Stri elder of Kansas City. Alice Brerman of the Evening Star said Miss Truman's voice '-has had fundamentaJ training thar, has not ipoiled its natural quality but it has not been advanced to the artistic point, x x x Long Road Ahead "The voice will never be large but it can be polished and refined, and her inherent musical sensitiveness Is an asset towards an artistic goal. But line road is still long and not to be followed via the concert plat- form." The Times-Herald critic, Glenn DUlard Gunn, said Miss Truman is a "promising beginner" whose voice has 'a. birdlike facility" and he rather liked her performance ajart from "a few accidents of pitch and coloratura." No breath of criticism appeared to trouble Miss Truman as she stood, and south American country that depends on the canal in times of peace and war.

The canal zone proper Is not in- volved in the argument. Ten miles wide, it belongs to the United States. The rejected accord, signed early this month, would- have given the U.
