Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - August 22, 1950, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH 10WANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL LVI Associated Press and United Press Full Lease Wires Five Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY AUGUST 22 1950 This Paper Consists ol Two One Hold All Red Attacks on 120Mile Line Truman Gets Controls and Mobilization Senate Votes 853 After Writing In Some Restrictions Washington Overwhelming approval of a home front mobilization bill virtually assured President Truman Tuesday the power to invoke wageprice rationing controls and otherwise gear the nation to a wartime foot ing The senate passed the emergen cy measure Monday night by a whopping 85 to 3 vote It did so after writing in some restrictions on the presidents authority which administration forces battled against in vain The senate bill and an economic controls measure which the house approved on Aug 10 are vastly different in some essential details but both authorize Mr Truman to Impose wageprice curbs and other inflation controls So the bill which finally goes to the white house after a senate house conference committee irons out differences between the two versions certainly will carry wagepricerationing authority Must Impose All Overriding vigorous administra tion opposition the senate voted 50 to 36 to require the president to invoke wage and price controls si multaneously and virtually across the board if he imposed them at all The amendment was sponsored by republican Senators Bricker Ohio and Wherry That directive killed a section of the administration bill which would have let Mr Truman put wage and price controls into effect on a selective basis if he cared to In advance of any overall program Under that plan he would not have had to invoke general wage ceilings until a substantial part of the economy was under price con trol The house bill permits selective controls On the other hand the senate refused to strip from the bill all of the authority for wage and price controls An amendment by Sena tor Capehart RInd to do that 2 New Rail Strikes Hit Key Cities Estimate 50000

those called Monday in Louisville Cleveland and Minne apolisSt Paul these are 5day token strikes The idea is to call attention to a wagehour dispute that has dragged on for 17 months All the strikes are comparative ly small but they are in such key spots union leaders have estimated they will put 50000 men out of work An attempt to settle the dispute AP wirephoto Monday night dragged on until
