harder at schools hospitals and large stores disclosed and the federal reserve board chairman William C Martin came out anew against relaxing credit restrictions Democratic house leaders were hoping for lastminute pressure from the public to stem the anti controls tide But they said pri vately that administration appeals to the housewife and wage earner thus far had failed to produce much reaction With democratic leaders adopt ing a strategy of delay prospects were that the bitter house debate would run into next week before reaching the showdown roll call itage The coalition group seems to have enough votes to put any kind of amendment into the bill it wants to Multer said Rep Cooley DN Car said there would be no compromise on the principle of price roll backs An amendment by

the nerve to say so Many Amendments This attitude on the part of some members is expected to produce a rash of amendments to exempt other than farm products from price rollbacks The national
