HOUSE FOR INFLATION DAMPER Washington- (LPA) Like a first-string backfield, top Cabinet officers last week battled on Cap tol Hill for the Administration’s anti-inflation program. Both for the Administration and its GOP oppo nents, it looked form the press box as though there was some confu sion as to who was ^,he quarter back calling the signals on each side. For the Administration, definite ly the brainiest witness before the Congress was Chairman Marriner Eccles of the Federal Reserve Board, who traced the background leading up to the current price crises, and discussed the long-range and the stop-gap steps that could be taken to end inflation. in No. 174.—Sanitary, Metuchen, N.

Even as he testified, government statisticians were compiling a re port that primary market prices rose to a new high during the week ended Nov. 22, to a point 16 per cent above a year ago. In subse quent days, private industrial in dexes of wholesale prices showed a continued climb. Commerce Secretary Averill Har riman bluntly told the Joint Cont mittee on the Economic Report that allocation controls should be used for steel. “The increased produc tion of freight so greatly needed by our domestic economy, is a case in point. Another exam ple is that steel may be for increased production equipment so essential our own food production levels and to increase food supplies in other countries.” KARIN BOOTH DISCOVERED AS HOLLYWOOD’S LATEST OVERNIGHT “CINDERELLA” “Swan Lake”, one of the world’s most beautiful ballets, as it is performed in “The Unfinished Dance’, M-G-M’s brilliant Technicolor drama of backstage 1 ife in the ballet world, which opens on the Ceramic Iner of dictatorship, screen Sunday with tiny Margaret O’Brien in the starring role.

French Workers Forced Strikes Paris (LPA) More and more workers returned to their jobs in France last week, altho there was no let-up officially in the number of unions on strike. Ndrthern and central France, including the Paris area, wa^-the heart of the back-to work tendency as coal miners, rail way workers, and textile mill em ployes tired of strikes that seemed increasingly political. Altho many workers in southern Frafice remain ed on strike, the Communist at tempts to create a general strike situation in these sections failed. Government action against sabo tage increased since the passage of emergency legislation by the Chamber of Deputies. Key provi sions in thfe six-months legislation are authorization of the call-up of 80,OCO reservists, new criminal pen alties for sabotage, and prohibi tions upon the use of coercion or false statements to persuade work ers to leave their jobs. As popular support for the strikes declined Communist inspired sabotage increases. Statements in the Chamber of Deputies by the minister of war and the minister of the interior made it clear that virtually none of the sabotage that has been committeed was by strik ing workers against their own work places, but the calculated violence, of Communist flying-squads. Several of Prime Minister Robert Schuman’s original proposals were modified or dropped out of the em ergency legislation as a result of Socialist opposition to anything which could be used against legiti mate, industrial strikes. Govern ment spokesmen of both the Social ist Party and the MRP (liberal Ca tholic party) made it clear that they sought no action against free trade unionism, but wanted to as sist the workers in ridding them selves of Communist officials. Leon Jouhaux, veteran leader of the CGT, principal trade union fed eration, most of whose paid offi cials are admitted Communists, re iterated his refusal and that of the “Force Ouvriere” (anti-CP group within the CGT) to either partici pate in a general strike or break off settlement negotiations with the government. However, the govern ment’s suggested increase in pen sions, family allowances, and min imum wages and its proposed cost of living bonuses, were not high enough to enable the anti-Commu nists in the CGT to force their ac ceptance upon the Communists. Returning from a month in Mos cow, IJlaurice Thorez, chief of the Communist Party, proclaimed that “the working class and the people of France have chosen battle.” He charged that the failure of the gov ernment to meet the demands of the strikers was due to American pressure. The tenor of his speech prompted speculation as to wheth er or not increased violence, bord ering on civil war, may not be in store for France before the wave of strikes is over. In Paris the Federation of Gov ernment Employes by less than a majority vote of its total executive committee decreed a two-day “war ning strike” against the govern ment. The opposition to any strike action at this time by several of its constituent unions, however, was expected to render it far less ef fective than the pro-striike section of the leadership desires. continue to put our main reliance on fiscal policy EAST LIVERPOOL, OHIO a Postwar Housing Program Starts 1 Canada In 1948 I I I I I I I I I I I UOmniGnT Qn II World Events ...... „..
