All price controls were off. The senate opposition made it increas- ingly apparent that any restora- tion bill will be several weeks. Bolstered by apparent majority support within the senate bank- ing committee. Democratic Lead- er Barkley (Ky) tried lo get op- posing sides together on a year's extension of the OPA as ,a sub- stitute for the 20-day revival res- olution passed 283-61 by the house yesterday. But when Senator Maybank (D- presiding, sought to assign a temporary extension bill offer- ed by Senator Wagner (D-NY) to the banking committee, Senators O'Daniel (D-Tcx) and Wherry (It-Neb) objected. This had the effect of de-laving for on-i day-the sending of the bill to the com- mittee.

Bowles Hopeful At the White House, Chester Howies told reporters he was hopeful Ihe senate will pass the continuing OPA resolution this week and then more permanent legislation "within two or three weeks." Asked why he thought action might come this week, the retiring economic stabilizer said- "I m always optimistic."

The movement to the polls got under wa- early and in numbers that belied early-campaign re- ports of apathy. Rural precincts are voting from 7. a.m. until 6 p.m. and town and city precincts from G a.m. until 7 p.m. Thunder Muted The thunderous crescendo of the campaign, reachinc 1ls ulti- mate on Monday and Mond.iv night, was muted today as vote solicitation centered on personal contacts.

He termed the op- eration "a complete and unquali- fied success." Forrestal warned against pre- mature conclusions, but voiced one generality as the result of his own observations: "there still will be navies in the future." Whether crewmen could have lived through the blast remained an unanswered question, but scientists expect to learn much by observing the effects of the rays upon surviving test animals, teth- ered at battle stations aboard the target fleet.
