DiSalle predicted sufficient cat e will reach market as soonas attlemen are convinced the con ols are here to stay He said fail ure of congress to renew contro authority quickly had contrib uted to the industrys uncertain ty Livestock marketing has been approaching normal within the past few days DiSalle said He added that his agency has a better check on livestock slaughtering than did the wartime OP A and ir that way can prevent illegal mea sales Skeptical Senators Capehart RInd and Ives RN Y were skeptical about this Ives told DiSalle he might be interested to know thai were having cattle rustling in New York state We wouldnt have issued these regulations if we didnt think we could enforce them DiSalle said And as far as rationing is con cerned I see no need for it in the foreseeable future There havent been any cattle vanishing Its been an ordinary human reaction Certainly if I had some cattle Id be holding them to see which way the wind would Secretary Brannan argued against one of the industrys main controls would result in a diminishing meat sup by reducing the incentive to produce livestock Brannan pointed out that cattle now are selling at S3 or more a hundredweight than a year ago and the prices then contained suf icient incentive for cattle men to xost cattle population by more han 4000000 animals He said it ooked like there also will be in creased production this under price controls Brannan was asked if the two ndditional scheduled rollbacks in ivestock prices should be allowed o go into effect on top of the 10 per cent rollbacks already made On the basis of the informa tion before us I favor the addi tional rollbacks Brannan said Encouraging News From Ranch Letter Washinfton UR Price Con troller Michael V DiSalle doesnt get many encouraging letters from cattlemen So Friday night was an oc casion He interrupted his testi mony before the joint congres sional watchdog committee to read a letter he got from Rancher Jack Brogan of Keystone Nebr The letter said Dear Sir I am writing this letter be cause I feel that you ought to have at least one word of en couragement from a stockman There are probably better ways of controlling inflation than price controls butat this late date I believe they are the only thing left I am afraid with the unco operative attitude of the farmers and ranchers that it will be hard to enforce but I sincerely hope that for the good of the country you are successful My father and I in partner ship run about 340 cows Wesell ome of the calves at 400 pounds some at 700 and some we keep asreplacements you can see we probably lost some money have from he rollback We are glad to con xibute it to the good of na tion Outside of the capital invest ment production costs have risen very
