Friday he got a telegram at his office saying he had been certifi- ed to the war department and asking if he would accept the position, at a year.

Mr. Truman .will deliver hU so- lution to the meat-hungry voters in a broadcast at 10 p.m. (East- ern Standard Time) Monday over all networks.

Part of Stabilisation In announcing the arrange- ments, Presidential Secretary Charles G. Ross said Mr. Truman will discuss meat as part of "the stabilization program." That generated new speculation on how far the chief executive might be willing to go in ad- justing the administration's line against inflation to get rib roasts back onto dinner and nudge democratic candidates off political hot-spots.

The problem had been threshed over thoroughly in cabinet meeting and other high-level On It All Day Today Mr. Truman weighed the case for and against complete contro, modified control, or no control. He worked all day in his study with no outside callers.
