by Provisions in the new bill not contained Ju the oW would Exempt from price controls livestock meat poultry butter and dairy products cottonseed soybeans and their products gram and livestock or poultry feed made from it tobacco and its products Free petroleum and its products from control except when a de control board found the short of domestic demand Bar federal rent ceilings states having rent controls Forbid OPA to enforce price differentials between textile firms which handle cotton from raw to finished product and those which do not Forbid the commodity credit corporation to pay more than 3675 cents a pound for imported sugar Give southern pine used for pulp as high a ceiling as any other pine used for that purpose Allow at least current produc tion costs on SO per cent of logs lumber and lumber products Make the new measure effec tive as of last June 30 the date the old OPA act expired 2Identical provisions in both old and new bills would Continue OPA until next

mar gins and discounts until sales re turn to the 193941 average Kill OPAs maximum average price regulation intended to as sure a supply of lowpriced cloth ing 3 On 2 major points a pricing formula for manufacturers and discounts and markups for whole salers and retailers the new and old bills differed this way The new bills pricing formula for manufacturers producers pro cessors service and transportation industries says prices must be high enough to return on the average the 1940 price plus any cost in creases sincethen But OPA coulri make reasonable adjustments to meet abnormal production And in cases where ctilings were high enough to cover costs it could re fuse to raise them if this a would not boost production or b would reduce production of other necessary items The old bills formula said ceil ings would have to assure individ ual producers processors and manufacturers excluding service and transportation price levels equal to those of he first half of October 1941 plus any subsequent weighted average increase in unit costs throughout the industry The new bills discounts and markups for wholesalers and re tailers would be those in effect June 29 1946 The old

informed Hep May D Saturday that it could find no al ternative to the conclusion that he is unable to explain or contradict facts linking him to a munitions combine it is investigating In a strongly worded letter to the chairman of the house military committee the senate committee refused to accept the conditions he laid down for a personal appear ance before the investigators Stripped of its ands and buts the plain and simple import of your Mays letter is that you decline to appear before the com mittee to face and explain the facts that have been presented the letter said The committee has sought to lind an alternative to the conclusion that you admit to account frequently fully openly No possession should them It cannot find any such al ternative The letter added We all are public servants As such the citizenry and its repre sentative bodies of which we are members are entitled to an ac counting of our stewardship of the trust we have accepted This should induce us to seek and more precious than trie confidence of the public in the integrity and devotion to duly of a representa tive of the people in a democracy When wrongfully challenged we should rush to defend that in

congressman indicated Fri day he was willing to testify pub licly if allowed to have his own MEASURE DUE WORKING OVER IN CONFERENCE 3 Day Delay in House Looms Senators Keep Restrictions on Rent Washington OPA re vival bill carrying a long list price control exemptions passed the senate 69 to 15 early Satur day and went to the house There a 3day delay before further ac tion is taken appeared likely Final passage came at a m on the 13th day ol OlAs lapse into a legal coma Ap proval was obvious almost from the moment that the roll call of weary senators started 6 minutes earlier Apparently amended far be yond the bounds which would permit its acceptance by President Truman the 1year extension measure was sent to the house But there was no prospect for quick action in that branch where the British loan currently has the right of way Administration leaders said the parliamentary situation was such that the house probably could not even send the price measure to a senatehouseconference commit tee before Tuesday Should that be the next step administration members hope to rewrite it from tip to roots Rep Wolcott of Michigan top republican of the banking com mittee said an effort might be made to substitute for it the orig inal extension bill President Tru man vetoed June 29 Wolcott said the first bill appeared stronger than the latest senate measure As It floundered through a sleepy senate the new measure would revive QPA and restore price control ceilings as of Juno 30 It would reinstate rent con trols with the proviso that states lake over in this field where they have adequate laws Price controls however would not be replaced on meat poultry eggs butler cheese milk or other dairy products cotton seed soy Wilsons Vote Washington fP Senator

objected when he vetoed OPA extender bill No 1 on June 29th These included a section giving final say on the lifting of food controls to the secretary of agri culture instead of OPA which Mr Truman said was an unsound split of authority It contained also what he called cost plus amendments for automobile and appliance dealers and lacked an additional in subsidies he asked In one major respect however it was more satisfactory to admin istration leaders than bill No 1 The senate put in provision re quiring that producers manufac turers and processors ceilings be Placed hieh enough to take care of the average increase in costs in their industry since 1940 This was substituted for a pro vision inserted in the original bill by Senator Taft ROhio which Mr Truman had labelled as the most damaging section of that measure The apparent administration strategy was to take this measure direct to a senatehouse commit tee without further action by the house itself now There it would be matched with a 20day exten sion oE OPA powers voted by the house previously and joined to gether under rules that would permit almost any sort of final compromise Senator ODaniel DTejr who had threatened previously to delay passage of the bill with par lilamentary maneuvers said in a 40 minute speech starting at 1210 a m CST that he hoped the bill would come back to the sen ate from the
