OPA Elbowed Aside by Two Other Items Rights, Price Of Silver Delay Getting Around to Conference Study By FRANCIS M. LE MAY WASHINGTON, July "got elbowed out of the legislative picture today by un- related fights over women's rights and the price .ot silver, Senator Barkley the dem- ocratic leader, told reporters a showdown on attempts to write a compromise price control bill that President Truman will sign is un- likely before tomorrow. Yesterday's session ot the sen- ate-house conference committee considering the measure produced a lot of talk and no little confu- sion. It finally broke up for lack of a quorum as Senators drifted away to debate a bill proposing a constitutional amendment to guarantee women equal rights with men. That debate goes on today. Silver Hearing In Way Also, before the conferees can get back to the subject of OPA they planned another effort to break a weeks' long deadlock over senale-house differences on the price of silver. A price engage- ment will keep Barkley away from any afternoon OPA session. Hence prospects are dim for an agreement today. No votes were taken yesterday on any part of the senate bill, which Mr. Truman has hinted strongly he will veto if it lands on his desk with its current bans on price ceilings for meat, butter, eggs, niilk and several other gro- cery items. However, house conferees were reported waiting only for a pro- pitious moment, to propose to the senators that they back down on the food list amendments. Mr. Truman was represented in some capitol quarters as ready to over- look other objections if the price .lid is put back on the market basket. i Tempers Are New Evidence Found By Profits Probers Hot But even in Ihe absence of any parliamentary maneuvering with- in the conference, .tempers ap- parently got hot. Senator Tobey (R-NH) emerg- ed, from the committee room de- claring "the house conferees want to talk, but won't take any posi- tion. The time has come to fish or cut: bait." Senator Taft whose pricing amendment in Ihe veloed bill was roundly criticized by Ihe president, held firm against a compromise. "Let the president veto it if he wants he said. The Ohioan served nolice he will ask the conference to erase from the bill the discretionary power given OPA in applying the new pricing formula. This form- ula was written by Barkley as a substitute for the provision Mr. Truman objected to. lariiKuilingTs" Back in Limelight Followup for Loon to Brit- ain Involves Listing of Items for Duty Cut WASHINGTON, July cutting took tlie top spol today on this country's program for expanding global trade. a quick followup to the loan' to Britain, some 30 or more inter departmental committees are al work within the government'drafting lists of thou- sands oC commodities on which lower import duties will be con- sidered.

In a lengthy nole handed the Austrian government, the Soviet occupation authorities in Austria were said to have made it plain that there is no change in their recent position in regard to seiz- ure of worth of Aus- trian .industrial plants and other property confiscated by the Ger- mans followim; ihe Anschluss in 1938. The lexl of the note was not available in London but ils essen- tial points were known to auth- oritative sources, which said it disagreed with almost every point set forth in American and British representations. The controversy arose July 6 when the Soviet command in Austria announced the property in eastern Austria had passed in- to Soviet ownership along with all other "German external as- sets" in the Russian zone. The United States disputed this interpretation in the allied coun- cil, asserting that property forcib- ly confiscated by Ihe Germans af- ter 1938 could not. be classified as German under the Potsdam agreement. The Americans also set forth that Ihey considered industrial plants and other assets, built un- der German orders by Austrian labor tmcl with inflated Austrian funds, belong rightfully to Aus- trian .economy. Britain subsequently backed the American contention and both nations made representa- tions lo the Soviet command. The Russians previously hod rejected Austrian protests. The Soviet seizures include certain oil fields northeast nf Vienna. To Be 'Weapon' Underwater Blast Expected To Turn Them Into Mighty Battering Ram By DON ABOARD THE U.S.S. APPA- LACHIAN, July J8.
