LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, TUESDAY, APRIL CHINESE REDS CAPTURE CHANGCHUN Price Boost Is Criticized Bracken Leads Attack in. De- fends Govt. Action OTTWA, April gov- ernment's recent action in allowing a 12'- per cent increase in the re- tail price of farm implements was strongly criticized in the commons vesterdav bv a heavy slate of oppo- sition sneakers who contended the pnces farm products also should be allowed io rise. In a vigorous defence, Finance Minister Ilsley said the government would not have permitted the in- crease had it not felt it was neces- sarv and stressed thas a "rigid jand severe" control still was being maintained, on prices of farm ma- chinerv.

Labor Minister Mitchell and Ag- riculture Minister Gardiner spoke with Mr. Ilsley to place the govern- ment's case on record. CART BEFORE HORSE? Finance Minister Ilsley said In the commons that the government had not put the cart before the horse in allowing a 12 H per cent increase in the price of farm im- plements. I Sneaking after more than 201 members, including all opposition leaders, had protested against the' increase, announced Saturday, Mr. Ilsley said the Prices Board would allow no increase that was not absolutely, necessary. Opposition speakers claimed the government should lift the ceilings on farm products and "wages in line with the increase granted to the implement industry. Since 1941 there had been repeat- ed and upward adjustments of wages and prices on farm products, said Mr. Ilsley. One of the reasons why the in- crease on implements had to be granted was because wages in that industry had increased by 28 per ImplementjcHMMjy HORSES IMPORTED UN.

The average hourly rate in the Massey-Hams plant in Toronto had moved from 51 cents an hour m 1939 to almost 80 cents an hour in 1946. To those who argued the govern- ment took only the side of big busi- ness. he wished to point to the fact that wages generally were 45 per cent higher in 1944 than they were curing the 1935-1939 period. Mr. Ilsley said it was utterly im- possible to maintain, rigid controls indefinitely. Constitutionally the government did not have the right to continue the controls indefinitely and for that reason a measure of de- control was necessary.
