Reaction to Program
Of Wheat Lending Hit By Agriculture Official Dissatisfaction with the way wheat merchandisers are reacting to the Government's wheat-lending pro gram was expressed today by an Agriculture Department official as he worked to back up relief deliveries of flour to Washington bakeries with additional shipments. Philip Talbott, head of the bakery section at the Agriculture Depart ment, said it would have to over come the current attitude of mills and merchandisers in order to obtain more flour for Washington. At the same time, the AFL bak ery union here was preparing spe cific wage demands it expects to present to management by Saturday. James B. Luttes, president of the Employing Bakers' Association, de nied a published report that the association would retuse to grant wage increases. Refusing to discuss the wage issue, Mr. Luties said the association is willing t‘o discuss improvement of conditions in Washington. Uses Trade Channels. Mr. Talbott said he was working through established trade channels In his effort to obtain additional shipments of flour for Washington. He hopes to supply small bakeries through their regular distributors, while going to the mills for large bakeries buying direct. It will be necessary to channel more wheat to the mills before they can supply Washington, he said. The trouble, he added, is that neither mills nor merchandisers have demonstrated they are con vinced the Government wheat lend Hog program is a workable plan. A hastily prepared Government j press release created confusion; among mill operators, he reported.1 The release said the Government1 , would loan flour to the mills. Actu ally the Government is lending flour to the merchandisers, who sell it- outright to the mills. The mills . are not responsible for paying it ;back, but apparently some still think so. Mr. Talbott remarked. Must Pay Wheat Back. While the merchandisers must pay the w'heat back after July 1, the Commodity Credit Corp. has assumed all the risks, he said. “But something is making them 1 drag their feet. I am not at all pleased with the manner in which j She merchandisers are co-operat-! ag" The Government plan was an nounced June 3 after the mills had protPsted that the United States had bought so much wheat for re lief shipments that the mills were starving. Relief deliveries of flour loaned by the Continental and Schneider Baking Cos. have assured continued operation of 22 small bakeries fac ing a shutdown for lack of flour. The first delivery was made yester day to the District Baking Cft. ask aix Days ray. Both union and company officials were silent today after Local 118, Bakery and Confectionery Workers' International Union presented man agement with a union resolution seeking six days’ pay for five days’ j work. Union officials, who met yester day with Louis A. Spiess. attorney for the Employing Bakers' Association, said the proceedings opened in a friendly atmosphere. Mr Luttes said he could not say whether the bakery companies would agree to reopen the contract. A clause provides for reopening after a 5 per cent increase in the cost of living. Charles B. McClosky, union business agent, said the union would contend there has been a 5 per cent increase since the contract was signed in December. Hungarian Premier Is Due Here Today Prime Minister Ferenc Nagy’ of Hungary was scheduled to arrive In Washington l?Je today for a five day visit during which he is expected to discuss with top officials here th'e postwar picture in his country, in cluding the possibility of American financial aid toward the reconstruc tion of Hungarian agriculture. With the prime minister are John Gyoengyoesi. Hungarian foreign minister: Matyas Rakosi. deputy! prime minister, and Stephen Riesz. minister of justice. Their plane from Paris was due in New York at 2 p.m. and they were to proceed im mediately by air to Washington. They will be lodged here at Blair House. Although the details of the dele gation's visit have yet to be ar ranged, a spokesman for the Hun garian Embassy said Mr. Nagy probably will see President Truman and Undersecretary of State Dean Acheson tomorrow’. He added the group hopes to talk with UNRRA Director La Guardia Thursday in an effort to procure more UNRRA aid for Hungary. The Embassy will hold a reception In honor of the visitors Thursday afternoon, and Mr. Acheson later will entertain them at dinner.

Withholding of Goods Forecast Until OPA Price Issue Is Settled By th* Associated Press Morris Verner, chief of the com pliance division of the Civilian Pro duction Administration, said today that widespread withholding of clothing and other goods from the market until July 1 is “inevitable" because of uncertainty about price control legislation. Mr. Verner made this statement in an interview as the Senate pre pared to open debate on a bill to extend OPA one year beyond June 30. but with sharply trimmed au thority over prices. Simultaneously, an OPA official who asked anonymity, disclosed that Price Administrator Paul Porter has ordered a halt to removal of price controls on any major commodities until Congress has taken final action on the OPA bill. This official said Mr. Porter be lieves it would be unwise to lift ceil ings on any important item "before Congress decides what the Govern ment's price policy is going to be. Lifting of Controls Delayed. Specifically, the official said, this will delay elimination of controls on crude oil. gasoline and other petro-i leum products, as well as on many j industrial machinery items. He added that OPA had planned re moval of petroleum ceilings “by this time." Coinciding with Mr. Verner's pre diction with respect to withholding, a textile industry official formerly on CPA’s staff told a reporter privately: "Let's not kid ourselves. Of course, there is going to be with-1 holding of clothing when the whole industry knows that prices may be going up next month. What else could be expected?" Mr. Verner expressed the opinion that not only clothing, but refriger ators, washing machines and even automobiles probably will be held off the market. The reason, he said, is that in the case of the latter items dealers, under terms of the House and Senate bills, stand to have their prewar profit margins re stored. OPA has trimmed these. Lost Cost Quotas May End. In the case of clothing, pending legislation eliminates a requirement that manufacturers produce certain amounts of low-cost garments. CPA regulations forbid manufac turers to kep on hand more than a 30-day supply of scarce products, but Mr. Verner said the agency does not plan to make an eoctensive check of inventories until about June 20. “Our last investigation showed no hoarding of any consequence, and no appreciable quantities could have been accumulated by this time,” Mr. Verner said. He added that even if supplies do pile up in the next 10 days, “we probably won't crack down unless withholding continues after July 1— and that isn't likely. We feel it is inevitable that there will be wide spread withholding until the price control issue is settled." Extent of Hoarding Discounted. Mr. Verner said that while with holding will be farflung, “it prob ably won't be serious from the standpoint of quantity because of the time element.” He said: “You can't pile up very much in three weeks.” Mr. Verner expressed his views after Stabilization Director Chester Bowles had asserted that livestock owners are withholding meat ani mals from the market "in anticipa tion of higher prices.” The Senate Banking Committee has recom mended removal of price ceilings on meat effective June 30.

S. Official Hopeful Of Break Today Which Will Avert Ship Strike By James Y. Newton Federal officials were hopeful of a break today in the maritime labor dispute in the form of an offer from Eastern ship oper ators which one predicted would settle the controversy 'without strike. Capt. Granville Conway. War Shipping Administrator, told news rtnen he believed a settlement is "shaping up" and that he believed a strike unlikely. The Eastern ship offer, which may come today, would be made to the CIO National Mari time Union, largest of the group In the Committee for Maritime Unity, which has scheduled a strike for Friday midnight. Meanwhile, a House Labor Sub committee was to meet at 2:30 p.m. for investigation of the dispute. The group, which last week postponed its probe in the interests of a possi ble settlement, will hear President Joseph Curran of the NMU and Harry Bridges, head of the CIO In ternational Longshoremen's Union. More Negotiations Slated. Labor Department conciliators met with the disputing parties until 2:13 this morning in an effort to find a compromise solution to union demands. Another negotiating ses sion was set for 10 a m. The opinion of Capt. Conway about the dispute was considered significant, since the Government's War Shipping Administration owns most of the merchant fleet. He made his comment after talking with rep resentatives of the shipping com panies who operate the ships for WSA. Representative Kelley, Democrat, of Pennsylvania, chairman of the Labor Subcommittee, hopes to find a solution to the dispute in the public hearings to be started this afternoon. Labor Department offi cial^ oppose the investigation on the grounds that it would Jeopardize a settlement through negotiations they are conducting. Spokesmen lor the ship operators will testify tomorrow and Capt. Con way on Thursday, according to com mittee schedule. Shorter Work Week Sought. The CIO demands include: A re- i duction of the 56-hour-work week at sea to 44 hours: wage increases ranging from 22 to 35 cents an hour for seamen; an increase of 35 cents an hour for longshoremen. Through the night hours, expert font ilia tors of the Labor Depart ment held the union leaders and the ship operators in separate sessions and shunted back and forth between them. They announced a compromise plan on the 56-hour week yesterday afternoon -in the following state ment : "Conciliators today suggested dis cussion of the possibility of the pay ment in cash for time worked over a certain number of hours as a pos sible method of solving the problem arising from the 56-hour-work week at sea. Pattern for Other Unions. “If the parties indicate that they regard this as an appropriate meth od of settlement of this problem, the discusion. could then, move to the question of the point at which the extra payment should start and , the manner and method of pay ment.'’ . That is. seamen might Continue to work 56 hours at sea and receive a monthly check for their labor. But in addition, they could receive extra pay for an unspecified por tion of the 56 hours. Under the present overtime sys tem, seamon get 85 cents an hour for any time worked beyond 56 hours at sea and beyond 44 hours in port. (The unions have already demanded an increase in this 85 cent rate.i Any settlement reached on hours and wages by Mr. Curran's union and the Eastern operators was ex pected to be adopted in the case of the other sea-going unions in the negotiations here—such as marine firemen, engineers, cooks, radio op erators.

Mark Clark. Declaring that Gen. Clark through out the Italian campaign had dem onstrated his "unfitness" for the permanent rank of major general, to which he has been nominated by President Truman, Miller Ains worth of Luling. Tex., president of the 36th Division Association, cited specifically the roles played by Gen. Clark in the Salerno invasion and Rapido River attack. Mr. Ainsworth, who was a 36th Division colonel, said the Rapido assault had been ordered by Gen. Clark contrary to the advice of subordinate officers, and added: "In fighting the nomination of Mark Clark we are fighting not the individual alone but also a powerful military system in which efficiency and capability are discarded for seniority and classmates control. Confirmation of 36 Delayed. “That is not the kind of Army we must have. A first step toward correcting these evils should be the. denial of confirmation." Tlje nomination of Gen. Clark is one of 36 officers of general rank whose confirmation has been held up several months because of the re quest of the 36th veterans to protest the elevation of the former com-j mander of American forces in Italy. Gen. Clark now is stationed in Eu rope with the temporary rank of a full general. His permanent rank Is brigadier general. “In my estimation." said Mr. Ains worth. “a good yardstick for meas uring the bigness of a man would be on the way that he treats his juniors and is respected by his jun iors and I still have my first time to have any junior officer or en listed man in the 36th Division say a kind word about Mark Clark." Showed Contempt of Guard. “He suppressed news of the achievements of the division, gave it no credit whatsoever at the time the operations were going on, and in eyery wav that I know possible showed his contempt and lack of confidence in the National Guard. "He arbitrarily relieved three colonels * • • and gave no reason for it, and I understood it was over the protest of the division com mander. As far as I can interpret his actions, he had a policy of re lieving a National Guard man who had attained the grade of lieutenant coloner or higher, regardless of knowledge and proven ability." Mr. Ainsworth read to the com mittee excerpts from a resolution adopted by the 36th Division Asso ciation concerning the Rapiao River attack, which cost the division 2,900 casualties. Furlough Pay Bill Passed by House By th« Associated Press The House today passed and sent to the Senate legislation giving past and present enlisted men and wom en pay for furlough time they did not receive while in service. The vote was 379 to 0. The legislation sets, as a stand ard, two and one-half days of fur lough time each month and permits the accumulation of not more than 120 days for which payment must be made in cash. Payments are computed at the rate of base pay received at the time of discharge, plus allowances of not less than 70 cents a day. House Military Affairs Committee members have estimated approxi mately 15.000.000 service people would receive an average of $250 under the legislation. Personnel already discharged would be paid immediately on their own certification that they are en titled to payments. The amount they receive would depend on the amount of accrued furlough time they certify they had at the time of discharge. In addition to providing furlough pay for men and women who served during World War II, the legisla tion prohibits such payments in fu ture emeigencies to officers or en listed personnel. U. S.
