Drafting Own Price Plan Freshmen Senators Urge Positive G.O.P. Program By Jack Bell Washington Prodded by their freshmen colleagues, Repub- lican leaders took before the Senate G.O.P. policy committee today a roughly-outlined anti-Inllatlon pro- gram aimed primarily at stopping price rises by voluntary agreements Chairman Taft told reporters the policy group would consider suggestions made at ar earlier conference of Senate anc House leaders. The Idea is to draft Republican counter-proposals to President Truman's ten-point re- quest for action to curb the cost of living. 'We will have a program If we can get a general agreement among the the Ohio sena- tor said. He added that all the party members In both houses will get a crack at the suggestions before any statement Is issued, Nothing Jelled, Taft Says Chairman Wolcott of he House banking committee said le thinks there Is no doubt that the lepubllcans will "come up with .a jolicy to stabilize the nation's econ- imy." Freshmen senators disclosed, meanwhile, that they had discussed at a meeting of their own the de- mands they havo been making for a "positive" Republican program to meet the Issue of rising living costs. Taft told reporters that nothing has Jelled In the way of an agree- ment, wen among tho leaders, and ndlcated he expects additional ;rouble getting the Republicans as i whole to agree on any detailed program. Voluntary Method Seen But there seemed every likelihood hat when It emerges in Its final arm, tho Republican manifesto will i voluntary price und, ra- ioning tho club- n-closet propoial of President Tru- man for standby powers-to enforce way to stop >rlco rises. This probably will be combined with demands for drastic cuts In government expenditures, a slash in Individual. income ;axcs, and a campaign to increase avings and cut private spending y buying government bonds. Tho Republicans also seemed gen- rally agreed that there must be omo extension of rent controls bc- ond next February 29. And they eomcd to look with favor on re- toring authority to control the use f freight cars.
