driver was named driver of the year because of his 18year record without an accident and for saving the life of a motorist during a Wisconsin snow storm The White House visit was among his rewards Mr Truman gave Larson five ball point pens one for each of his three sons and two daugh ters ages 11 to 16 Each pen bore the inscription I swiped this from Harry S Truman Cabbies Ready Strike in NY NEW YORK March 31 Mayor William ODwyer admit ted Thursday night that lasthour attempts to avert a taxicab strike had failed but warned in a radio speech that the entire police de partment had been alerted to make sure there is no rough house and no violence Th police department assigned 3000 men to guard safety lanes for nonstrikers in the face of charges that goons would Tie em ployed both by the taxi companies and by John L Lewis district 50 union which is attempting to or ganize New Yorks 11000cab industry The strike was set for am Friday It was also obvious that several thousand cabs would attempt to continue operating Rent Chief Assures Tenants Hike Will Not Be General WASHINGTON March 31 UP Director Tighe E Woods assured tenants Thursday that the new rent law which goes into effect Friday does not mean a general rent for all of them He hinted in fact that because of the paper work involved it may be some time before landlords get any increases under the new pro vision jriiaranteeing them a Vfair net operating income In his first public statement on the new act Woods agreed with Pres Harry S Truman that the law takenas a whole is a good one He said most of criticisms wei aimed at minor provisions or provisions which represent a new not necessarily approach to the problem of ad ministeringrent control fairly Discussing the provision for a fair net operating income to landlords Woods said it is sound from an administrative viewpoint Nor doesit mean a general rent increase for all tenants he said said ths of a fair net operating Income is a liberalization of the present law which permits rent increases if landlords can prove hardship While the law leaves it up to Woods to decide what is a fair net income he said the provision will take care particularly of any small landlords who feel that they have been treated unfairly It clearly does not involve any administratively unworkable plan of fair return on some valuation It is merely ri continuation of a trend in our adjustment provisions which has been taking place over the past two years he said A new regulation instructing local rent boards exactly how to determine what is a fair net operating return will be issued as soon as possible he added But first his staff will have to make a study of what has happened to landlords operating costs during the past eight years both before and under rent control That may take some weeks which means no increases can be granted under the provision until then Meantime landlords still can rent hikes under the present hardihip machinery Inflation Peril Still Near Truman WASHINGTON March si Inflation still is just around the corner Pres Harry S Truman con tended Thursday as he called ahiw for standby economic control pow ers and a big boost in taxes Some of his financial advisers have termed current price de creases a healthy thing pointing to continued prosperity on more stable levels But Mr Truman emphasized he still wants congress to pass his antiinflation pr9gram including powers to put ceilings on prices Letup Only Temporary He told a news conference that the recent price declines are only a temporary letup in the infla tionary pressures He said one factor in checking the upward spiral has been his oftrepeated re quest for authority to apply fed eral curbs when needed As for taxes the president said he does not agree with a conten tion by Sen Walter F George D Ga that an increase at this time might set off a depression It would be much more danger ous to the nations economy Mr Truman said for the government to run up a deiicit than to boost taxes Asks Levy Boost He 3iJ not mention any specific figure for the tax hike but pre viously he had asked congress to boost the levies to help meet budget requests and to make payments on the federal debt which now totals 000000 George who is chairman of the taxhandling senate finance com mittee told a reporter I dont think the president can get an increase in taxes out of congress now Two Republican senators quick ly backed Georges stand Sen Kenneth S Wherry GOP floor leader said he agreed with Mr Truman that the government ought to avoid a deficit but that the way to do it was to cut fed eral spending not to raise taxes Agrees With George Sen George W Malonft Nev said that he agreed with every word George has spoken about taxes He added that if taxes were an in tolerable level the Truman de pression will make us forget Mr Hoover Key Democratic senators mean while indicated that prospects also are dim for Mr Trumans antiinflation program Sen Joseph C OMahohey D Wyo said there can beno doubt that recent price decreases have reduced demand for controls As chairman of the joint senatehouse economic committee OMahoney previously had urged that con gress grant standby price and ra tioning powers I still think it would be wise to hsve the he told a reporter but chances probably very remote now Only Atom Bomb Deters Soviet Churchill Says Taylor Draws 180Day Jail Sentence Senator Plans Appeal Of Guilty Verdict By Alabama Jurors BIRMINGHAM Ala March 31 Alabama jury Thurs day night found Sen Glen Taylor D Ida guilty of disorderly con

appeal to the Alabama court of appeals He hoped to make bond and catch a pm CST plane so he can be back In the senate Friday Taylors pleasure stemmed from the fact that he hopes to carry the issue all
