administration does not want to bid against American consumers The official said privately the government feared such buying would boost meat prices far above present lev els Before OPA expired July 1 the government bought an average of more than 25000000 pounds of meat weekly during the first half of 1946 to help fill a foreign com mitment of about 1500000000 pounds for the full year Heretofore federallyinspected slaughterers were required to set aside aportion of their output for the government at ceiling prices The government was taking be tween 10 and 15 per cent of the tieef about 40 per cent of the pork and 50 per cent of thelard The setasifle requirement was suspended when price controls expired The government had hoped however that OPA would be reestablished soon and the setaside orders reinstated Under a free market the price boosting effects of government buying Would tend to be less in a periodof heavy livestock market ings and slaughter than during a season of low marketings While sales of meat animals have increased sharply since price controls expired this nevertheless is the season of the year when marketings are at their lowest Some of the marketings last week and this week represent animals withheld in June by producers who anticipated at least a lapse in price controls and higher Normally marketings of live stock begin to pick up in Septem ber and

Murdock said he expects sev eral democrats from the western cattle country to join with a large majority of the republicans In support of the Wherry amend ment As early senate debate revolved chiefly around meat controls Chi cago reported another day of sharply higher marketings Mon day with cattle and hog prices generally upward To a contention by Jack Kranis president of the National Meat Industry council that large pack ers were hiking past OPA beef ceilings by 12 cents a pound spokesmen for Swift and Armour companies said they had simply added the amount of government subsidies which had averaged about 5 cents a pound These subsidies designed to keep retail prices down expired with OPA Wherrys amendment provides No maximum price and no reg ulation or order under this act or the stabilization act of 1942 as amended shall be applicable with respect to livestock poultry or eggs or food or feedproducts processed or manufactured In whole or substantial part from livestock poultry

com petitive price level on the mar ket Senator Smith RN J In dorsed such an experiment But Barkley criticized what he called this guinea pig idea Leaving the controls off one com modity might be all
