Munn Washington Construction of the proposed St. Lawrence sea- Beef Hits Record High At Chicago Average Price for Steers, Yearlings Per Hundred bawling steer and the grunting hog Jumped back again into the public spotlight -to- day and there were Innumerable charges and counter charges In ex- planation for the sudden boost in moat prices in livestock markets and in butcher shops. Average price of steers and year- lings at Chicago yesterday rose to an all-time record high at approxi- mately a hundred pound accord- ing to the Department of Agricul- ture. This topped the peak of established last October immediate- ly after O.P.A. ceilings were re- moved. For the first time since March 5 the top reached Live hogs have not advanced as sharply as beef cattle, the top here yesterday being a hundred pounds compared with on Feb- ruary 25. Cattle receipts at Kansas City yesterday, tha largest for a June 11 in 25 years, advanced to the best price since January. Grades Also High While the price for top grade cat- tle is lower, the department said) steers of medium and low grades are higher than last October. A smaller percentage of strictly good and choice cattle are arriving and the price spread between various grades is narrowing. Meanwhile, retail meat prices ad- vanced during the past several weeks and representatives of butch- ers in the east blamed the meat packers. In Newark, N. J., butch- ers threatened to close .unless prices come "The butchers are helpless and are getting so fed up they're ready to take a Joseph Vlan. president of the Independent Retail Butchers Association of New Jer- sey, said. Production Up 40 Per Cent Large packers in Chicago, dis- counting talk of heavy foreign ex- ports, said advancing meat prices represented an "'amazing" domestic consumer demand, particularly for beef. This, they said, also was re- flected in the high price for beef cattle at livestock markets. The Agriculture department said meat production last week totaled pounds, 46 per cent j higher than a year ago.

Before it reaches Mr. Truman's desk, the measure still must re- ceive approval ot the full and Senate. In announcing the agreement late yesterday Senator Buck (R.- Del.) said members ot the confer- ence will take a final look at bill at another meeting, probably this week, before reporting it to their respective chambers. The present rent control law ex- pires June 30. The length of the extension WTU the final major point agreed upon yesterday. The House okayed a. flat extension to December 31, with. ft provision that the President could proclaim an additional three- month extension If he considered this necessary. House conferees won out or: provision in their bill to wipe out all government controls over com- mercial construction and allocation of materials after June 30. The Senate bill provides that units completed or con- verted to housing purposes "on or after" last February 1 shall freed from controls. Credit Controls President Truman recommended today that Congress pass a bill per- mitting continuance ot controls oa consumer credit in peacetime. Unless Congress docs tJiis. Mr. Truman said he plans to end present regulations, based on war- time legislation. These regulations. under executive order, fix the slzo ot down payments and fix the length, of time in which the balance must be paid by Installments. These controls allect purchases of such things as household goods, re- frigerators and automobiles. Mr. Truman's views were stated in a letter to Marrincr S. Ecclcs. chairman, of the Federal Reserve aoard. which wields the controls on Installment-buying credit. Eccles read the letter to the House bank- ing committee. Letter's Tert Ecclcs has asked the committee to pass a measure giving the Reserve power to continue operation of controls in peacetime. Mr. Truman's letter said: "I hope that the Congress will en- act the necessary legislation to re- tain restraints upon excessive ex- pansion which results In excessive :ontraction of consumer credit .hereby making for economic insta- bility, reduced production and un- employment. If the Congress does not sec 2t to provide the necessary legislative authority, It is my intention to vs- catc the executive order because I do not believe that such regulations should rest indefinitely in peace- time 011 emergency or war after Uic Congress has had nmplfl opportunity to con-sidor the .subject."
