MAItTIN WASHINGTON, Jan., 21, President Truman called on con- cress today to retain food sub- sidles as one means of combat- ting inflation and a possible eight per cent jump in the cost of liv- mi; index (or food. Tin; icqtie.t, made in (lie chief stale of the union and budget message, represents an about-Iace by the administration on subsidies. It had planned to end must of them by their June 'M expiration date. Started early in the war to keep food prices stable, the sub- sidies have been costing the gov- j eminent about a year. Mr. Truman said that unless the subsidies are continued "it would become extremely difficult for us to control the forces of in-1 lation." More specifically, he estimated that withdrawal of the subsidies1 would force increases of from three to live cents a pound in j average prices of meat: at least; 12 cents a pound for butter, in i addition to a five cent increase; allowed he t fall: one to two cents a quart for one cent for loaf of bri.-ad, more than a cent a pound for sugar, and eight j cent., a pound for cheese, in add- itioii to a scheduled inn of four rents on l-'ebinary 1.

In fact the debt itself will be pared from its present S278.000.000.000 to 18 months hence. Mr. Truman, however, called for taxes to be held at present levels.

The hulk of the students at the college are returning service- men and are going to school und- er the G. I. bill of rights. The veterans are enrolling and hop- ing that they can find a place to live while attending college. College authorities renort that every dormitory room has been reserved and still there are not enough rooms to go around. Before the war, students found it a task to find living quarters, but now that task has increased until it is a full time job. Many Here First Timr Many students are coming to Ada for the first, time to enter college and are having to spend almost every day looking for a place to live. Or. A. I.inschcid, president of the college, and Mayor Guy Thrash have appealed to Ada citizens to open their homes to Kast Central students. The room or apartment does not have to be anything fancy, just so it is clean. One veteran brought his fami- ly to Ada two weeks ago and started looking for an apartment while living in a local hotel. He spent an entire day looking for a place to live while attending school and after two weeks of searching found a two-room a- parlment ami moved into it. Needed NOW There are numerous other sit- uations that could be cited, but the main object now is finding places for the veterans and other students to live while attending college. W. A. (Gus) Delaney, Jr., ap- pealed to Chamber of Commerce members to rent vacant rooms to students now because the second semester is .starting and the en- rollment at the college is larger than it has been in several years. There might be a few rooms in local hotels, but veterans cannot afford to live in a hotel on per month income. WASHINGTON', Jan. 21.

Jan. producers of I Oklahoma are shipping about as usual, at higher prices despite a packinghouse strike here and i a shortage of feed, leaders said today. W. H. Martineau, editor of the Livestock News, estimated that "about three-fourths" of the I buyers here are active, with a more insistent demand than nor- mat to fill. Only Armour ami Co.. here is i closed by the strike. Wilson and Co.. and a number of local inde- pendents are all in need of live- stock, said W. W. Lucas, of the Oklahoma Livestock Marketing association. The independent market, he explained, includes literally hun- dreds of small packing houses which sell usually in retail mar- kets, and thus do not come un- I der wholesale ceiling regulations and some pay no attention to regulations. Martineau said prices paid here last week were so high that Wilson had been practically forced out of the .market "because they were above compliance.'' An estimated II.500 cattle and calves came in here over tin? week-end for Monday's market, compared with 2.000 a year ago. Livestock observers 'said the i feed shortage here now is "about the worst in history as far as 1 Oklahoma is concerned, but it had been made bearable by one of the- mildest winters in years." Not only is there a shortage of protein, but the autumn drouth has held back wheat pastures, and farmers have used up their emergency hay. fodder, and oth- er roughage far earlier than usual.
