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.

by the Continental and Schneider
Baking Cos. have assured continued

Both union and company officials

seeking six days’ pay for five days’ j

Union officials, who met yester
day with Louis A. Spiess. attorney for

said the proceedings opened in a

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

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.

U. 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.

lexas Veterans Decry
'Classmate' System
In Opposing Clark
By ths Associated Press
Accusations that the Army is gov
erned by "seniority and classmates
control” were made today before
the Senate Military Committee bv
veterans of the 36th i Texas i Di
vision protesting a promotion for
Gen. 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. Savings Bonds are the safest
investment in the world. E Bonds

readily converted into cash should
the need arise.

Central Conference
Planning Big Rally
On Suffrage July 2
The Central Suffrage Conference
last night mapped plans for a great
District suffrage rally July 2 at the
Sylvan Theater on the Monument'
grounds.
The conference’s first regular
meeting heard a report on the plans
for the rally given by J. C. Turner,
vice president and chairman of the
Organization Committee.
A “Spirit of '76 Parade,” speeches
by members of Congress and ap
pearances by stars of the entertain
ment world will be some of the at
tractions at the rally, the conference
was told.
Among members of Congress ac
cepting invitations to the rally are
Senator Aiken, Republican, of Ver
mont and Senator Huffman, Demo
crat, of Ohio. Mr. Turner said.
The meeting was addressed by
Merlo J. Pusey, editorial writer of
the Washington Post, who declared
he was "extremely optimistic" that
Congress would pass legislation at
this session granting the District
local suffrage as proposed by the
McCarran bill.
The conference adopted a resolu
tion indorsing the McCarran meas
ure creating a citizen commission
to draft a charter providing for a
city-manager form of government
for the District. The resolution also
urged that citizens here write to
Senate Majority Leader Barkley and
Minority Leader White urging pas
sage of the bill, already favorably
reported by the Senate Judiciary
Committe.
The following additional trustees
were elected at the meeting: Renah
Camalier. Mrs. Charles Weston.
Austin Fickling. George W. Hodg
I kins. Dr. Leon Ransom, the Rev.
! F. D. Reisig. J. M. Heiser. Mrs.
Robert Leonard. Herbert Jacobi and
