Prices to Consumer Washington UR Railroads boosted freight rates Tuesday bringing higher prices on meat At the same time consumers were warned of a new inflation spiral coming this winter Immediate effect of the new freight rate per cent in the east and 6 per cent in the south and permission for meat packers to raise their wholesale price ceilings To the Housewife The new meat ceilings will take into account the freight increases and at least part of the higher prices was expected to be passed on to the housewife soon Prices also may go up on other goods such as automobiles which are shipped F O B Detroit with transportation charges extra The freight rate increase was approved by the interstate com merce commission 20 days ago It created the paradoxical situation of one government agency con tributing to price increases while Economic Stabilizer Eric A John ston complained that the defense production act didnt give him enough power to hold prices down The ICC however granted the rate increases because of a boost in materials and labor costs to the railroads since the last freight rate increase two years ago The carriers had asked for a 15 per cent hike New Spiral Johnston said in New York that defense spending will start a new inflation spiral this winter He said it pushed the cost of living above an extra S350 paid so far since January 1950 by the aver age American family The new controls act he said wont be strong enough to hold the level maintained since last February once the government begins spending a year for defense Defense production is rapidly expanding but total industrial production in July was down to the lowest since last September government figures showed Mon day The decrease is only temporary A lull had been expected while industry switched over to defense output The nations mills and factories inay be as busy next year as they were in World war IL The federal reserve boards in dex of industrial production dropped 9 points in July from 222 in June to 213 in July The index is based on a 193539 average of 100 restoring the confidence of west ern Europeans and he added The faster they regain their confidence the faster they will do the job of defending themselves In my opinion the one thing that can break the United States and He said the two year old com mittee heretofore has been con cerned chiefly with fighting what he called the monopolistic hold of labor bosses who he said now dominate industry capital and labor give us nothing in return is to drag He aadea that the committee is this thing out We must go to the not opposed to unions saying that limit of our productive capacity more than i of its members belong and of the power of Europe to abto unions sorb our military assistance and get it done now Must Be Quick If we cannot do this job with in a reasonable length of time it cannot be done the general add ed But never let us lose sight of the fact that the selfinterest of the United States dictates that we inspire in Europe the determina tion to defend itself The senate group also heard from Gen Alfred M Gruenther chief of staff at NATO headquar ters and Eisenhowers deputy that there had been an overall in crease of 75 per cent in military budgets over the past year in the European countries He said conscription periods have generally been lengthened munitions production has picked up about 70 per cent foreign as sistance has been well used and the effectiveness of military units has doubled or trebled Gruenther said that for every dollar provided under this pro gram for equipment to help in the building up of European forces 4 or more dollars would have to be provided to build up United States forces having the same contribu tion to United States security in Europe Speaking of possible moves

Blow New Enemy Note Studied By DON HUTH Tokyo United Nations command charged Tuesday that the communists sent one of their own planes through the motions of bombing Kaesong last Wednesday of and then blamed the allies for the attack The charge was contained in a aulletin released by the public in formation office at Gen Matthew 3 Ridgways headquarters as the UN commander studied a commu nist note that could shatterhopes of truce in Korea There is as yet no indication as io the nature of the reply General Ridgway will make to the latest communist letter the public in formation office said Offer to Resume The reds offered to resume truce they broke off last certain conditions Primarily they want Ridgway to say a UN plane bombed the Kae song neutral area Wednesday He has already said no UN plane was even in the area He told the communists they manufactured the incident Less than 24 tours after the reds rejected this Ridgways public in formation office the same position in detail It said no UN planes were in the area at the time of the attack but that an unidentified plane was It added It is beyond doubt tnat this wai a communist aircraft AH evidence established the clear conclusion that on the Bight of Aug 22 the communists per petrated a deliberate fraud The release said that were no craters no bomb fragments evidence on the ground of a UN command air attack There is every indication the release said thatred truce per sonnel at Kaesong were accesso ries to a deliberate fraud Using diisry jf con ference site as a cloak of deceit communist personnel perpetrated a sham of unprecedented propor tions Elaborate Creating an elaborately staged and quite obviously premeditated scene they sought to fix upon the UN command a false charge of air attacks on the conference site The reds asked Ridgway to make a new investigation of then evidence of the assertsd bombing To this the public information office commented the reds have iad time to prepare flmore con vincing evidence of a bombing The original evidence was so transparent as to immediately in dicate the fraudulent nature of the bombing charge the release said But this defect in the evi dence could be cured Should the investigation be re opened itis probable that much more convincing evidence of a bombing attack would be pre sented Unthinkable1 Officials at general headquar ters was unthink able that Ridgway would refract ais charge that the entire inci dent was a frameup Red Chinas Peiping radio said one of the two American liaison officers who investigated the original evidence either lied or was incompetent in reporting there had been no bombing The broadcast quoted Alan Winnington a London Daily Worker correspondent who has been covering the Kaesong con ferences Urging a second investigation to include the reported new evi dence the broadcast said The time is short because the Americans may try to destroy the The release from Ridgways leadquarters reviewed the whole array of charges and counter charges of neutrality violations It said From the beginning of the conference July 10 the commu nists repeatedly violated the letter and the spirit of our agreements concerning the neutrality of the conference area After Ridgway called them on hese violations the release con tinued the reds started making charges of their own It added Their ensuing charges can only be interpreted as an effort by them to regain the face which they lost in the eyes of their fol ;
