Prices For Mafor Foods Into Whirl
Indications Showing Up Consumer Resistance Beginning To Develop Against Products With Higher Sales Prices
CHICAGO, Oct. 19.—(AP)—The removal of OPA controls has sent the price pattern for most major items in the American food budget into a dizzy whirl and there were indications today of growing consumer resistance to those products which turn up with a higher sales tag.
The impact of sudden decontrols hit the markets an erratic blow and it was too early to tell how the food dollar of the near future would compare with its buying power of last week.

the American Cancer society. Mrs Juba M. Smith is the chairman for this county and will r.ead the organization work.
A field army, consisting of the member* in all the counties in the state, is to be formed. Mrs. Smith hopes to make Pontotoc one cf the leading counties in this field army set-up.
Membership in the Cancer Society will be classified as Founders, those donating $1,000 or more; sustaining members, those contributing $25 or more annually; contributing members, those who contribute $5 or more annually; and unit members, those who join the local units by paving annual dues of $1.
The field army will detect cases cf cancer, keep up the propaganda for cancer control, and assist in every way they can in keeping this disease from Gripping and killing human beings.
The county units will consist of a commander, appointed by the state and district commanders; a medical advisor, and unit members.
buildings are 150 feet long and 25 feet wide. They have asphalt tile roofs, walls of sheathing covered with tar paper under white asbestos shingles, and they are equipped with plumbing and a sprinkler system for fire control. They will be placed on concrete foundations and will have concrete floors.
Oscar Parker, East Central business' manager, and Hugh Morris, head of industrial arts, have just returned from Frederick, where they inspected the buildings. Parker says that they are very similar in appearance to the veterans’ housing units now being erected on the lower campus.
The three buildings will be used to house the industrial arts shops. Now the college will be able to use thousands of dollars worth of new shop equipment that has been stored because prior to this time there has been no place to install it.
Norris says that the light, well-ventilated buildings will be much better for shops than the present basement quarters in Science I Hall.
The new* buildings will be shipped to Ada in the near future and will be erected on the strip of campus between the president’s home and the Mayhue tennis courts. This location will place the shops where noise from them will not disturb other class work.

Marne is closer to Africa than is Florida.
The major staple decontrolled —meat—promises to be relatively plentiful in butcher shops across the nation in a few days but at prices above old OPA ceilings. Dealers, consumers and trade associations have joined hands in efforts to keep prices down.
The prices of all ‘livestock shot up, despite an avalanche of receipts, and record highs w’ere established in some markets. Both cattle and hog prices, how’ever, experienced downward trends when offerings were the heaviest.
In the commodity markets, the price of soybeans, lard and flax also went lip.
Many Commodities Drop
However, a long list of commodities dropped in price, including poultry, eggs, butter, wheat and cotton. Trade sources attributed the butter drop to the removal of ceilings on other fats and oils.
Reports of buyers resistance to higher meat prices came from many cities. In some instances, resistance ^ was building up against higher prices for dairy products.
The American Meat Institute, saying prices would be higher until demand is met, urged housewives to “shop around for the best buys.” Some dealers refused to buy meat at high prices and the president of the New Jersey Independent Butchers’ association urged consumers to strike until meat prices come down “within reason.”
Phone Campaign On Butter
In Helena, Mont., housewives started a chain telephone call movement advocating buyers strikes against butter prices of 89 cents to $1.00 a pound. A similar campaign among women's groups was started against a two cents milk price boost to 18 cents a quart in Portland, Ore.
Consumers were reported passing up” meat in many cities when confronted with prices ranging up to $1.25 a pound for steak. $1.00 for roast beef, 75 cents for hamburger and 59 cents for weiners.
Food articles which compete directly with meat, such as poultry, closed the week with price decline* Fowl, selling at 35 cents a pound in the Chicago wholesale market Monday, dropped to 29 cents at the week’s close.
Eggs also weakened, and trade sources explained that with more meat available a diminished demand for eggs was expected. At Chicago a grade of eggs which brought 57-60 cents a dozen wholesale Monday sold at 53-57 cents as the week closed.

U. S. Is Not Using Softer Policy In Handling of Japs
By DUANE HENNESSY
TOKYO, Oct. 19 (ZP)—General MacArthur described tonight as a “complete fallacy” any suggestion that the United States has adopted a new, softer policy towards Japan.
The statement, issued by a spokesman for MacArthur, wras prompted by the repercussions of an American - British - Russian clash in the Allied Control Council on Wednesday.
At that meeting, the Russian member requested information on what the Japanese government had done about election law violations.
Ambassador George C. Atchison, Jr., MacArthur^ political adviser and chairman of the council replied that the elections last April were fair and honest, that the Japanese government should be complimented upon them, and added:

U. S. Asking Cooperation
Delegate to U. N. Would End Charges, Countercharges; Meeting Opens Wednesday
By MAX HARRELSON
NEW YORK, Oct. 19 1/F)—ln a new bid for cooperation among the major powers in the United Nations Security Council, U. S. Delegate Herschel V. Johnson today called for an end of “wild and unsubstantiated charges, harsh accusations and countercharges within the council.” Speaking before the foreign policy association as delegates from 51 nations gathered for Wednesday’s opening of the U. N. General Assembly, Johnson criticized what he called “misuse of the council for propaganda purposes” and too frequent use of the veto.
People Have Misgivings He declared that people throughout the world “react with deep misgivings” to the way the Security Council has operated so far and added: t
“All of us, I think, feel the need of substituting a spirit of cooperation for one of recrimination. We can, if we will, change the climate of international intercouse my trying harder to win the peace than to win a point in debate.”
Johnson declared that the big powers had special responsibilities as well as special powers and warned that the “great hope of the charter becomes dim” if the powers ever use their position “to compromise the principles of the charter itself for their own advantage at the expense of others.” Obligation to Each Power “We feel that the obligation under the charter is for each of the permanent members to seek ways of concurring and thus meeting the issue,” he said. “Thus requires a spirit of accommodation and the recognition of the ultimate goal of peace and security with justice.
John Foster Dulles, alternate U. S. delegate to the General Assembl y and a leading republican authority on foreign affairs, declared in a speech at the same meeting that the United States must continue its bi-partisan foreign policy and must make it clear to the world that “Americans today stand where their forebears stood, believing that men are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights.

Murray Says Higher Wage Need Obvious
CLEVELAND, Oct. 19 (/Pl—Asserting “it is obvious to all that higher wages to meet higher costs are absolutely essential,” CIO president Philip Murray said late today “the course of action by the CIO on the w age question will be passed upon by $he national body at its convention Nov. 18.”
In a press conference which ended a session of more than three hours w’ith the executive board of the United Auto Workers board necessarily will be their own and will not reflect any national CIO policy whatsoever.”
Asked w hether there would be any coordination of wage demands by various CIO unions, he replied: “That is a reasonable assumption.”
The CAW board originally was scheduled to conclude a two-day wage policy meeting today, with Murray sitting in on the final session this afternoon, but before leaving for Pittsburgh tonight Murray said “the board thought it was a sufficiently serious problem to extend its discussion through tomorrow.”

Eisenhower said American and Russian troops got along very well and he saw “very little to worry about in personal relations.”
He described American occupation forces in Germany as “adequate for what they were put there to do,” although “we could want for more in numbers and efficiency at times.”
He found their morale “surprisingly high” although “they are mostly young men and want to be home.”
“The housing situation is not very good for dependents,” he reported.
With Mts. Eisenhower, who accompanied him on the trip, Eisenhower returned from Frankfurt in his army plane by way of the Azores and Bermuda.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 19 A record production of soft coal since the navy took over the pits last May was announced tonight by Capt. H. H. Collisson, the coal mmets administrator.
In a report to Secretary of Interior Krug. Collisson said bituminous production since the navy took charge on May 21 totals 218,715,000 tons, against 197,076,-000 tons for the comparable period last year. Because of a strike in the spring, the total to date for all 1946 is 45,000,000 tons below 1945.

U. N. Speech Is Awaited
President Hoi Commended Byrnes Foreign Policy Address Reference To Russio
WASHINGTON, Oct. 19 CP — Senator Vandenberg (RMich > took a strong stand beside Secretary of State Byrnes tonight for a “patient but firm” policy toward Russia amid indications President Truman might speak up along the same lines next wee*.
As Vandenberg a top U. S. adviser at the Paris peace conference—followed up Byrnes* Friday night report on that meeting with a radio appeal for support of “America’s bipartisan foreign policy,” there were these developments at the White House:
1. It w’as announced that President Truman’s address opening the United Nations general assembly in New York Wednesday wall be a 25-minute speech and that he will fly there to deliver it.
Truman Okayed Byrnes Speech
2. At was disclosed that Mr. Truman had approved Byrnes* Friday speech in advance; had listened to it on the radio, and had telephoned the secretary of state immediatly atte wards to express warm commendation.
3. The president Byrnes, Undersecretary of State Dean Ache-son and Senator Austin (R-Vt>, American delegate-designate to U. N.. conferred for more than two hours on “United Nations matters.”
The White House said nothing about the content of Mr. Trumans L. N, speech. It announced only that the president will fly to New York Wednesday, deliver the address about 4 30 p m. < EST* <3:30 p.m. CST) and return to Washington by train after attending an assembly reception.
More Than Just Welcome
High government officials observed, however, that a speech of 25 minutes' duration certainly would contain more than words of welcome.
They pointed to the close Tru-man-Byrnes liaison on the tatter s Friday address and to ttxiav s lengthy conference as possible evidence that the president might make a major foreign policy tai* in New York.
If it follows the line of the Byi nes and Vandenberg broadcasts, it might help wipe out the last hits of confusion which resulted from Mr. Truman's original endorsement of Henry A. Wallace's Madison Square Garden address last month, which was sharply critical of Byrnes* policy.
In any case, the officials assumed that Mr. Truman discussed what should go into the sp^*ech w'lth Byrnes* Acheson and Austin. Byrnes has announced he will be in New York for the president's talk.
I onnally Endorses Byrnes
Another endorsement of Byrnes* speech and policy came from Senator Connally <D-Tex> aboard the British liner Queen Elizabeth plowing the Atlantic toward New York. Connally, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations committee and another of Byrnes* advisers in Paris, praised the speech and said the peace conference had achieved ‘'substantial results.”
