Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - August 21, 1946, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME atrr HIBTOfty AKO ARCHIVES IA THE NEWSPAPER THAT Associated Press and United Press Full legjed MAKES ALL NORTH 10WANS NEIGHBORS DEFENDS YUGOSLAVIAS ACTS NOT EXPECTED UNTIL SEPT 2 Definite Date Depends on Agreement Between OPA and Agriculture Washington re tail meat prices probably will b delayed until early next montl the office of price administratio said Wednesday New and lower ceilings for live stock at the slaughterer level ar scheduled to go into effect at a m Friday under the order is sued Tuesday night by thc decon frol board i But an OPA spokesman said fh effect of these price reduction will not reach retail stores for 1 or 14 days OPA will attempt to retur prices to the June 30 level bu a complete rollback for all cut of meat was considered ver doubtful The sky was still the limit o butter and milk costs which th board ruled should remain fre from control When meat slaughtered unde controls reaches retai stores however it will be under OPA ceilings The spokesman estimated th retail ceiling prices would go iht effect about Sept 2 But he em phasized that any definite dat depends on an agreement to b made between OPA and the de partment of agriculture at a meet mg later Wednesday By order of the price decontro T livestock andon soy beans cot ton seed and their products Dairy products and most grains the board ruled must remain fre of price curbs The decision announced Tues day night had been Washington bestkept secret since the atom bomb EvenOPA was kept in th dark For that reason OPA held new controls in suspension for 2 days while it draws up necessary regulations Price ceilings to be come effective Friday will be an nounced Thursday OPA said One OPA official believed ceil ings on most meat cuts could be restored to levels in effect on June 30 The roll back he noted will be aided by restoration of meat subsidies as ordered by thc decontrol board Board members Hoy L Thomp son Daniel W Bell and George H Mean warned that supplies of both meat and dairy products wil continue short of demand They said meat production this year will be somewhat smaller than last years output The board declined to damp controls on milk because it said prices have failed to rise unrea sonably since ceilings were lifted It added however that prices of dairy products would be kepi under close surveillance If they get out of line the board said Tuesday nights action will be re considered Theboard handed down its de cision after 9 days of hearings and study The task was given the board after congress failed to reach a price decision on many commodities after 6 months wrangling Now the board must study pos sible price action on poultry eggs tobacco and petroleum Congress said these products will remain controlfree unless the board de cides otherwise In restoring meat controls the board authorized OPA to put hack effect the same subsidies that were applied to meat on June 30 An agriculture department official said fhesc to taled 5684000000 in fiscal should be sufficient to allow a rollback of meat prices to June 30 levels Although the farm parity ratio increased about S per cent during the first 15 days after price con trols expired the spokesman noted that there was still a comfortabe cushion between livestock ceil ings and parity levels on June 30 That cushion probably can absorb any subsequent increases in the farmers cost of living To ease the transition into a subsidy free era beginning by order of congress on April l the board decreed that the subsidy payments must be cut In half not later than Jan 10 In addition to meat soy beans and cotton seed the board re tried price controls to flaxseed and byproduct grain feeds It left free of control wheat rye corn oats feed oats mixed feed oats barley and grain sorphums and any livestock or poultry feed made entirely from any one or U S Opposes Red Move on Dardanelles

diplomatic hat the United States would not sit idly by in any soviet effort o establish herself in a favored f not dominant position in the straits The American note however did set its seat of general agree ment on 3 of the soviet pro posals namely 1 The straits should be always open to the passage of merchant hips of all countries 2 The straits should be always pen to the passage of
