The vote was a victory for the president in this round of the weeks-long struggle over OPA, but administration leaders con- ceded that nobody could guess what OPA will look like, if in- deed it survives at all, when it finally runs the gaunt of the legislative processes. Speaker Rayburn im- mediately after the house voted appointed these house members to deal with the senate in the ef- fort to compromise the trouble- some OPA issue. Chairman Spence of :he banking committee, and Reps. Brown Patman Barry Wolcott (R- Crawford (R-Mich) Gamble Wolcott Joins Plea A key house republican, Rep. Wplcott of Michigan, joined ad- ministration leaders in urging that the senate version of OPA be rewritten in a senate house- conference committee. "The bill at present is in worse condition than'we have seen in the history of OPA legislation Wolcott declared. Mr. Truman commented Sun- day that the measure, as adopted by the senate, is "in terrible shape" and "couldn't be worse." Indirectly, Wolcott called, too, for the senate to back down from its stand that meat, -milk, poultry and many other food items should be exempted from price controls. "It seems to me no price con- trol at all can be written unless the senate is' winning to yield from its he said. Hopeful of Conference The issue for the house was whether to accept the senate bill or seek a compromise through the conference route. Wolcott said he did not know what would be the result of a conference but was "hopeful we can work out something." Chairman Spence (D-Ky) of the banking committee then voic- ed confidence that a conference committee "can write a compro- mise price control bill that will be acceptable to the house, senate and the president."

July court, taking note of the housing shortage in considering Mrs. Earl Henry Van- derfccht's suit for divorce, de- the verge of a breakdown when she was released, seemed com- posed. Harrison said they were arrest- ed by two motorcyclists wearing civilian clothes but carrying pis- tols. "We were not roughly treated. When we were released, 'every- thing that had been taken was rturned intact including our jeep." Mrs. Harrison, who came to Berlin May 15, said that at one point during her questioning by the Russians she began to weep and, "I guess I scared the whole darned bunch of them." We had egg noodles three times a she continued. "No vodka. When the Russians set us free they promised lo get me a i trasts of America."

Farm I'p OKLAHOMA CITY, July wages in Oklahoma showed a marked increase during Ihe fiscal year just ended, com- pared to the previous year, K. D. Blood, federal statistician, said Byrnes Tells Of Firm Stand Russia Must Cooperate Or Accept Blame for Violation Of Potsdam Agreement WASHINGTON. July Vamlenbcrg (R-Mich) told Ihe senate today l.hat "sub- stantial gams" have been toward world peace but the gOJil still remains "far from total achievement." The Michijjan senator look the floor to discuss the Big Four meeting of foreign ministers in Paris, which he attended as an advisor. He voiced full indorse- ment of the conference report given Ihe nation by radio last night by Secretary of Stale Byrnes. Byrnes said that Russia is cre- ating "doubts and suspicions" by her objections to a German dis- armament treaty. He- announced that this country is moving to- ward breaking down economic barriers in Germany, even if the Soviets do not help. Gives "Krank VandcnborK told reporters be- fore he began speaking that is making what he termed "a frank appraisal" of American- Russian relations. Byrnes said in his speech that orders giving Russia a choice be- tween cooperation or "economic paralysis" in Germany will go forward this week to Gen. Joseph McNarney, American military- commander at Frankfurt. The orders will be to cooperate with any or all of the other oc- cupying France and finance, trans- portation, communication, trace and industry. In a radio report to the Ameri- can people on successes and fail- ures of the four-power council of foreign ministers at Paris, Byrnes asserted: "We will cither secure econo- mic cooperation between the zones or place the responsibility for the violation of the Potsdam agreement." Truman Approves Message President Truman listened in and telephoned congratulations to the secretary immediately after the broadcast. Russia declined at the Paris meeting to go along either on economic 'measures, guarantees for keeping Germany disarmed for a quarter of a century, or writing of a peace treaty for Austria. On those points, Byrnes ed, the conference "made no pro- gress at all." He pinned blame squarely on Russia. "1 do not believe." ho dcclaiwd "that the, Soviets realize t h doubts and suspicions which they have raised in the minds of those in other countries who want to be their friends by Ihe aloofness, coolness anci hostility with which they have received America's offer to guarantee jointly the continued disarmament of Ger- many." But on the success side of the ledger Byrnes listed the calling of a peace conference for July 29 to consider treaties, drafted in tentative form at the Paris coun- cil, for Italy and the former axis satellites. On Road Bick To Peace Prospects are bright, he said, for treaties that will let the peo- ple of five occupied states "livi> and breathe as free people." He added: "We arc on the road back to peace." But the four powers had a "great struggle and tremendous difficulties" in harmonizing their views as much as they did on peace treaties, the secretary said.
