Government Plans To Re-Enter Bulter Market About May I
High Demand, Low Production Make Civilian Outlook for Next Winter Dull
By OVID MARTIN
WASHINGTON. April 24.—f/P) —The government plans to reenter the butter market about May I to buy 60,000,000 pounds to supply the armed services and military hospitals during the next 12 months.
To assure itself of this quantity. the government probably will require manufacturers to set aside a portion of their output during May and June.
Last summer it purchased 325,-000.000 pounds under a set-aside order, but later turned 75,000,000 pounds back to civilian markets when supplies became very scarce.
In May-June Period
Government buying for the year ahead will be concentrated in the May-June period when butter production normally reaches its peak for the year. By obtaining a year’s needs in this period, the government thus eliminating itself as a competitor with civilians during low production periods.
But despite the government’s pian to secure military needs during the flush production season, the outlook for civilian supplies of butter next fall and winter are not bright.
In the first place, total production is expected to fall below last year’s level and below pre-war output.
No Reserve In Sight
In the second place, consumer demand is at record levels. Because of this, it is quite likely that the great bulk, if not all, of the production of the heavy production season — May through July—will be consumed as rapidly as it is produced.
If this happens, none from the flush season’s output would be reserved for consumption next fail and winter, when production is expected to be far short of demands.
During the war, rationing limited consumption during the flush production season and some of the spring and summer output was forced into storage for sale later.
No Inducement For Storage ^ In normal times, the butter industry itself stores a part of the summer output for sale during the fall and winter season of low production. There is an incentive to do this, because prices usually are lowest during the peak production season and highest during the fall and winter.
Under the government’s price control program, there is no financial mductment to store for the future. Price ceilings are the same the year around.

Tire Outlook Is Improving
Rubber Industry May By Late Thi* Year Catch Up With Day-to-Day Demand
By STERLING F. GREEN
WASHINGTON, April 24.—(>P) —Good news for motorists: the ribber industry bids fair to surpass its towering production goal of 66,000,000 new passenger tires this year.
Civilian production officials made this encouraging forecast today, saying the record output drive is being helped by new cotton yarn controls protecting tire co^J supplies.
The industry’s goal is 13,000,000 tires more than the estimated 53,000,000 passenger casings pro-c. ced in the previous banner year of 1941.
Despite the present bright outlook, however, CPA officials cautioned motorists that retail dealers probably will continue to run a week or two behind on tire deliveries throughout the summer, catching up with day-to-day demand only in the final quarter of the year.
As advice to intending vacationers, one CPA spokesman offered: “Put yourself on a dealer’s list in plenty of time, expect delivery in IO days to two weeks, have one of the old tires recapped for a spare.”
Far in the forefront of reconversion, tire manufacturers so far this year have eclipsed 1941’s peak production rate but are crowding the limit of their materials supply.
Filing for County Offices Slackens Sharply Third Day

The filing period for countv and state offices closes Friday at 5 p.m.

Minim (engross Says Subsidies Had Wrong Flied
Son. Mitchell Criticises NAM for Spending So Much In Anti-OPA Campaign
WASHINGTON, April 24.—</P) I—The United States chamber of commerce today called for an end to all price and rent controls by March 31, 1947.
The recommendation was made in a statement prepared for the senate banking committee by Emerson P. Schmidt, the chamber’s director of economic research.
He said the directors of the chamber advocated lifting price controls, with the exception of rent, by Oct. 31. The rent regulations should be removed by next March 31, he added.
WASHINGTON, April 24.—(ZP) —The American Mining congress today urged increased ceiling prices on zinc, lead and copper.
Julian D. Conover, secretary of the organization, told the senate banking committee that prices should be increased and federal subsidies reduced. The committee is considering legislation to extend price controls a year beyond June 30.
Conover declared that legislation introduced by Senator McFarland (D.-Ariz.) and other western senators, to provide for increased prices and reduced subsidies, should be enacted.
This would not raise the ceiling prices much, he contended, and would be helpful in increasing production badly needed for the construction and other industries.
Says Inequities In Subsidies
Conover said there are inequities in the payment of subsidies and that although they were intended to stimulate production

they had developed into “a means 'profit control.”
O. W. Bilharz, president of the
Tri-State Zinc and Lead Ore Association, testified in support of the subsidy payment plan. His organization includes mines located where the northeast corner of Oklahoma and the southeast corner of Kansas join with the southwest part of Missouri.
Bilharz said the tri-state area was a major source of zinc and an important source of lead in the last two wars. He added it could not continue to be a great source without the subsidies.
Mitchell Spanks NAM He added that the association would not object to any modification of the subsidy payments “so long as its present effectiveness is improved rather than impaired.”
Senator Mitchell (D.-Wash.) took the National Association of Manufacturers to task today for spending $395,850 in its anti-OPA campaign. He called such spending “out of line.” ^
Mitchell was one of a group of Democratic senators who tangled

“The average consumer who wants prices held down couldn’t “ope to duplicate that amount,” Mitchell said to a reporter.
Russia Trimming Its Land Use Demands
Redacts ta Small Fracfiaii Of Original Raquast What Austria Must Allow
WASHINGTON, April 24, UPU-United States diplomatic officials reported today that Russia has trimmed its land use demands upon Austria to a small fraction of the 150,000 acres originally sought.
The action came as the after-math of an UNRRA decision at Atlantic City late last month to ban relief aid to any country whose armies are found to be “living off the land” of countries they occupy at the expense of the local population.
The exact extent of Russia’s reduced request remains uncertain. But one state department official, in close touch with the situation, said privately the So. iet union now is limiting its request to such untillable lands as those previously used as German drill fi -Ids.
This country, now helping to feed the Austrian people as the major contributor to UNRRA, has advocated reduction of occupation forces in that country to hasten restoration of economic stability.

* McNorney Reveols General Breakdown, Demands Immediate, Drastic Change
FRANKFURT. Germany, April 24.—(Ah—Gen. Joseph T. McNar-ney today ordered a disciplinary crackdown on all American troops in Europe because “discipline in certain localities and commands in this theater has deteriorated to the point of discrediting the fine performance of our troops in general.”
In orders issued to unit commanders, the theater commander declared “all commanders and their subordinates must now devote themselves to the reestablishment of discipline.”
“This,” he said, “becomes their most important immediate function.”
Gen. McNarney’s written order ^aid:
Unit Ties Broken
Due to rapid demobilization and frequent changes of station of units and assignments of enlisted men and officers, firm ties of unit pride have been weakened. Tho traditional constant concern of officers for the welfare of their men and consequent mutual loyalties have been difficult to maintain during this transition period. Team-work often has been forgotten.
“Consequently discipline in certain localities and commands in this theater has deteriorated to a point of discrediting the fine performance of our troops in general.
Where Troops Fall Short
“Indications of this state can be found in:
“a. Participation in black market activities and in indulgence in drunkenness.
“b. A high absent without leave rate and an excessive incidence of other disciplinary infractions.
“c. High automobile accident rate.
“d. Excessive venereal disease rate.
“e. General lack of smartness in appearance and conscientious observance of military courtesy.
“f. Complaining attitude toward constituted military authority and those duties essential to maintain high standards of soldierly efficiency.”
Reputation, Self Respect Suffer
“The low state of discipline within the command leads to a loss of respect for American authority by the enemy people and injuries to our reputation among our allies. But even more import-

Commission on Italian-Yugoslav Border in Agreement As Big Four Ministers Gather
PARIS, April 24, CA*—A unanimous fact-finding report by a four-powe • commission which visited the disputed Italian-Yug-oslav border area was authoritatively forecast today as one bright spot in the somewhat gloomy picture shaping up for the Big Four foreign ministers* conference which convenes here tomorrow.
One member of the Big Four commission — representing Britain, France, Russia and the United States—said the group’s report should be finished for submission to the foreign ministers bv this weekend. He predate! that despite disagreements on where the boundary should be, russians and westerners alike would be able to agree on economic and ethnic facts involved.
The deputy foreign ministers, charged with preliminary work on the peace treaties, were scheduled to meet today to fix the exact hour for the first session of their chiefs tomorrow.
Scheduled to participate in the face-to-face conferences called in an effort to iron out numerous international problems were Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin of Britain, Foreign Minister Georges Bidault of France, Foreign T*inister Vyacheslav M. Molotov of Russia and Secretary of State James F. Byrnes of the United States.
OPA Unworried Or (latin Men's Suits Skipffleflts lo (ease
WASHINGTON. April 24. -(&) —OPA showed little concern today over the contention of a clothing industry spokesman that a price regulation will halt shipments of men’s suits after May I.
The spokesman, who declined use of his name, said in New York last night that suit deliveries will have to stop because OPA has not revised its maximum average price regulation to take into account a change in suit price ceilings ordered March ll.
Under the average price regulation, garment manufacturers are required to turn out their 1943 ratio of high and low-priced clothing. Those who do not comply during a quarterly period, and who do not come into compliance within the next 30 days, may not make further shipments.
An OPA official who asked to remain anonymous said that despite revised price ceilings for suits, “there is no reason to believe that many manufacturers will fail to meet requirements” of the “map” order.
The official said OPA has asked the industry "some time ago" to submit cost information needed to consider any revision of the order. He said this had not been received, but that the agency expected it today.
OPA, the official added, will “act speedily” when it obtains this information.
took a one-day recess after yesterday’s stormy session in which Soviet Russia lost her battle to have the council drop the Iranian case and announced she would boycott any further discussion of the case.
Sir Alexander Cadogan, British delegate, also was reported to have received instructions to back the Australian proposal. Mexico and Poland previusly had indicated they would support the measure, and it was believed Russia and France were ready to go along.
Harmony On Spanish Question
The other delegates, while reluctant to commit themselves in advance, were expected to follow the lead of the big powers, which for once seemed to be in agreement.
It thus appeared that the Spanish question w'as finally headed toward a harmonious solution when the council meets at 3 p.m. (EST) tomorrow.
Some delegates predicted there might be a lengthy discussion— possibly delaying a vote for another day—but there was general agreement that approval of the proposal was assured.
Soviet Delegate Andrei A. Gromyko fought to the last to push through his resolution to strike the Iranian case from the council’s agenda, but in the end he recognized his defeat by associating himself yesterday with a milder resolution offered by French delegate Henri Bonnet
The French proposal provided that the case be dropped from the agenda but it had an additional provision that the secretary-general report to the general assembly on any new developments on the Iranian question.
Bonnet’s resolution, however, was defeated when it received only three of the council’s ll votes. It w-as supported oiHy by Russia and Poland. All the other delegates during the debate had expressed a desire to keep the case on the agenda until May 8. the date on which Russia has promised to have ell her troops out of Iran.
