Senate Hearing on Measure Prove ll Or To Extend OPA Starts Off N Claim, With Hot Battle of Words CI,0U ls Told
Charge of 'Hokum'
By Witness Brings Angry Responses
Tobey, Barkley Loud in Replies, Capella rf Refers To Bowles, Porter Charges
FIVE CENTS THE COPY
Chemicals Explode in Fire
WASHINGTON. April 22.-<;P) -—President Arthur Besse of the National Association of Wool Manufacturers today called OPA supporters guilty of “hokum” and set off a loud word row in the senate banking committee.
Testifying at the start of hearings on legislation to extend price controls beyond June 30, Besse observed that administration leaders wanted OPA extended without “crippling amendments” and called this “hokum of the highest order.”
Senator Tobey (R-NH) shouted for Beese to steer clear of opinion.
“Are you saying that anybody who favors extension of OPA is guilty of hokum?” asked Senator Barkley (D-Ky). Told by Beese that was the case, Barkley roared:
“Then I’m guilty of' hokum. iou will have to improve your testimony before I have any* respect for it.”
Tobey remarked that he was going to discount Besse’s testimony.
Works Both Ways
“Well, I’m not discounting it,*’ Senator Capehart (R-Ind) declared. Capehart said Economic Sta-b.iizer Chester Bowles and Price Administrator Paul Porter had called businessmen “every sort of name.”
^ hat is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander,” Capehart summed up.
“Well, lets get on with the goose, suggested Barkley and Besse resumed his testimony— “A little overwhelmed.” he said.
Besse said he called the administration stand against crippling amendments “hokum.” because OPA is “crippled by its own inef-1 ficiency. stubborness and lack of realism.**
Bowles and Porter have declared that amendments to the price control law adopted bv the house would be inflationary’. The house changes, including a guaranteed profit clause and a progressive end to subsidies, are before the senate.
Porter Claims Public Support
Downtown, Porter addressed a mass meeting of 3.000 OPA workers today, declaring:
“I believe the opposition has reached its high point. There is widespread public support for ^nued strong price control.
Those who have appraised the noose bill objectively, including some of our critics in congress agree that the bill has got to be readjusted.**
Porter added that given “adequate” legislation and ‘ favorable circumstances,” he was “pretty confident that we can hold the price line just about where it is now.”
Porter said that during the present transition period. OPA ..as three major responsibilities:
1. To prevent inflation.
2. To see that price controls do not hamper production.
3. To make “speedy decisions*’ on price adjustments.
exPrfsseci the opinion that OPA now has completed the major part of its postwar price adjustments.
Besse Is Bitter
Besse told the senate committee tnat what administration leaders are asking is that OPA be continued “as is” and allowed for an-c t \e\ >ear to “cripple industry and delay the attainment of higher production levels.”
.Jen^r.Pm‘ncy <D-Calif> said today OPA s chances in the senate rr.av be considerably improved by mail from consumers who don't lute the way the house treated the price control agency.

Marshall Confers With Communist General on Report U. S. Plones Strafed Lines
CHUNGKING, April 22, CP)— China’s snarled political problems appeared no nearer solution today after General Marshall held his first conference with Communist Leader Gen. Chou En-Lai since he returned from Washington.
Neither government nor communist spokesman reported any <j progress after the three-hour conference.
A communist spokesman said Marshall listened without comment to Chou explain the political and military situation in China from his party’s viewpoint.
Chou Radios For Report
Chou disclosed that Marshall had asked a communist im .stiga-tion of the communist asserted claim that United States planes strafed communist lines in the Szcpingkai area last w*eek. Chou disclaimed personal knowledge of the incident and said he was radioing field commanders for a report.
Marshall conferred with Generalissimo Chiang Ka i-Shek this afternoon.
Government reports from Man- i churia said today that Chinese communist troops “are gathered like clouds’* in the Kun**chulin district east of Chan**chun where the government’s first army apparently made slow progress in its effort to reach the fallen capital.
Kungchulin is 36 r.iles from Changchun, captured by the communists last week.
U. S. Newsmen Held
Lf. Gen. Chao Chia-Hsiang, acting commander of government armies in the northeast, was scheduled to fly from Mukden to the Changchun area today to report on the military situation there.
The New Life (Peiping daily) correspondent said five United States newsmen, including Associated Press Correspondent Tom Masterson. were safe in Changchun but without freedom of action. Approximately IOO government officials there also w*ere detained.
The capture of Changchun was reflected in increasingly jittery feeling among government quarters m Mukden and North China. Defenses were tightened at Peiping and Aientsin.
A demonstration at Central Park in Peiping Sunday resulted* in eggs and stones being hurled at candidates to the national assembly.
A Chinese government military spokesman labeled as a “complete fabrication” a cierge by Chinese communists that U. S. aircraft strafed their forces at Szepingkai, Manchuria, last week.

VIENNA, April 22.— (AP)—Four Russian fighter planes made runs on a U. S. army C-47 transport and fired from two to four 37 millimeter shots off the plane’s wing today as it came into the U. S. army airport at Tullin, just outside Vienna.
