A high government official, who can not be identified fur- ther, predicted the White will issue an announcement to- day or tomorrow, detailing changes in the present "hold- the-line" price policy. Although the modification will be aimed primarily at settlement of the 15 day old steel strike, this official said, its terms also will apply to other major tries involved in wage disputes. Bowles Is Key Figure Key figure in any such revi- sion of President Truman'i wage-price orders is OPA Ad- ministrator Chester Bowles, wha presumably outlined his position to the President during 50- minute conference. Bowles, it is understood. gued for an policy change, as against "flex- ible price control advocated by Reconversion Director John W. Snyder. Bowles has contended that any special concession on prices for the steel industry would start series of "emergency" conces- sions which would threaten OPA s whole svstem of controls. Snyder Swinging urer There were indications that the price chief was beginning to win Snyder over at least in part to his views. One White House official told a reporter the reconversion di- rector now is "inclined favor- ably to Bowies' argument and that the two men seemingly reached a working agreement.
