EDITION VOL LV1I AnoclatcO and United FKH LMM Wlttt Cento Copy MASON CITV IOWA TUESDAY OCTOBER II This Paper Consists of Two 1 Government May Delay Price Control Restrictions on Housing Due at an Early Hour However ByG MILTON KELLY Washington Flan ders RVt said Tuesday the government still may head off the need for price controls and ra tioning if it moves fast enough on other fronts to combat infla tion On the other hand Senator Maybank DS Car said in a ieparate interview he believes con trols and higher corporation taxes should come soon and as close together as possible One new set of drastic aimed at slowing up the pace of private home in im mediate prospect Interested fed eral agencies were finishing up work on new regulations and prospects were that they may be Issued Tuesday night On Guaranteed They were reported in advance to contain restrictions not only on government insured or guar anteed mortgages but also on pri vately written mortgages They expected to provide for a 10 per cent down payment by vet erans and down payments ranging from 15 to 30 per as high as 50 per cent on luxury nonveterans Meanwhile there were signs that another major antiinflation itep might be the development of a wage policy similar to the so called little steel formula which the government employed during World war n This time the pattern may be a big steel formula since CIO President Philip Murrays steel workers some 1000000 strong Monday launched a campaign for wage boosts throughout the in dustry including the giant U S Steel corporation The little steel formula acted generally to hold workers up until VJ day to a 15 per cent increase over their wage level of Jan 15 1941 It was worked out by the labor board in a case involv ing smaller steel companies There after it became a pattern for all workers The board breached it only for fringe advances and cor rection of inequities Because of the importance of iteel in the economy and the tim ing of Murrays wage drive it appeared likely fthat wage settlement he makes with the in dustry will have bearing on drives fa rail and telephone Industries starting this week and other contract negotiations next The steel wage issue could well up in the lap of the new stabilization board which has not yet been named Cyrus S Ching head of the federal medi ation service is regarded as the probable chairman The white house is expected to act shortly folowing up weekend selection of Doctor Alan Valentine as head of the overall economic stabilization administration May Be More Taxes On the question of other anti inflation moves Senator Flanders said the government might head off the need for price controls by sharply boosting corporation taxes again and offering special induce ments to stimulate the purchase of U S savings bonds He suggested that the treasury department pledge that savings bonds will be redeemed when they mature with dollars having pur chasing power equal to the money invested in them now Such a pledge Flanders said would be a powerful stimulant to the current bond drive There was some evidence meanwhile of a slight slowdown in the rate at which government savings bonds are being cashed in Treasury officials
