INFLATION COMING U.S. GROCERS TOLD Future Of OPA “Beside Point,” Tyre Taylor Says In Address CHICAGO, June 24— (tP) —Tyre Taylor, general counsel for the National Association of Retail Grocers, declared Monday the question of what becomes of OPA in Congress "is largely beside the point" because “we are going tc have inflation anyway.’’ In his annual report to the asso ciation convention, Taylor, ol Washington, D. C., asserted "that barring the outbreak of a global war, no political power on earth can perpetuate OPA beyond its next expiration date—whether that be four, six, nine or 12 months hence. Beside Point “Irrespective of what is finally done or left undone about OPA we are going to have inflation any way.0! wil go even further and say that the whole question of what becomes of OPA and when is large ly beside the point. “OPA deals only with prices and rising prices are not the cause of inflation. They are merely its symptoms, and attempting to curb inflation by controlling prices is about as effective as applying a mustard plaster for a ruptured ap pendix.” Balanced Budget Taylor contended the “only way” to relieve inflationary pressure was through federal budget balanc ing and elimination of “any and all restraints on production.” It has been estimated that the odds aganst a person in the tem perate zone being struck by light ning are 1.200,000 to 1.
