SI.00 -L kj PRESIDENT VETOES COMPROMISE OP A BILL Measure Provides Sure Formula For Inflation/ Message Warns Asks Effective Legislation Now; On Radio Tonight BULLETIN The House this afternoon sustained President Truman's 1 veto of the modified price con trol bill, in the face of warn ing that it may mean the end •of all price control. The vote *was 173 for and 142 against. V (Text of Veto Message on Page A-2.) By Joseph A. Fox President Truman today ve toed the compromise OPA ex tension bill, telling Congress in a bristling message that “this bill provides a sure formula for inflation.” The President acted shortly after the White House had announced he would go on the air at 9 o'clock tonight on all major networks to tell the American people the rea son for his action. Mr. Truman set out five evils he said would flow from the meas ure, which Congress sent to him last night, and concurrently he asked Congress to continue the pres ent controls by resolution for the time required to write a workable bill providing for extension of the stabilization laws for a full year. The OPA expires at midnight to morrow, and congressional leaders told the President yesterday that he would have to take this bill or nothing. House Prepares to Vole. The veto message went to the House, which originated the bill, and that chamber prepared for a prompt vote on the question of over riding or upholding the President. The rules permitted one hour of debate after completion of the read ing of the message by a clerk. Should the House or Senate up hold the veto, OPA could survive; after tomorrow' night only through j special emergency legislation. Administration leaders meanwhile went into a huddle to draft the continuing OPA resolution asked by Mr. Truman in the event his veto were sustained. Representative Monroney. Demo crat, of Oklahoma told a reporter the resolution probably would seek continuation of the agency for two or three weeks. Asked if he thought a bill such1 as the President requested could be drafted in that time, Mr. Monroney said: “Well, at least it will give us another chance at bat.” * Bowles Hails Veto. Stabilization Director Chester Bowles, who dramatically resigned last night after the Senate passed the compromise extension bill which Mr. Bow'les said was full of infla Presidential Control Of Prices Will End If Veto Is Sustained By the Associated Press If President Truman’s veto of the OPA bill is sustained, key legislators reported today, he has no other authority to con tinue price. controls. An amended version of the Second War Powers Act, which was sent to the White House yesterday, contains a specific provision that it cannot be used as authority for fixing price ceilings on commodities or rents. The measure, now awaiting presidential action, would con tinue the President's wartime authority to ration and allocate scarce materials. tionary “boobv traps." hailed the presidential veto of the bill, assert ing: “Every citizen in this country ought to deeply appreciate the courage of President Truman vetoing this impossible price control bill. “The issue now is are we going to have effective price control. “I am confident Congress will meet this issue squarely to protect the people against rising rents and prices.” At the Office of War Mobiliza tion and Reconversion, officials who preferred not to be named said that an expiration of price controls would also mean an expiration of wage controls. Wage Setup Explained. They gave this explanation: The five specific grounds on which the President attacked the measure were that ifTwould cause: “(1) A first.round of sharp and widespread price increases. “(2) Production slowdowns due to price uncertainties; “(3) Renewed demands for fur ther wage increases due to higher living costs; “(4) Higher production costs due to production slowdowns and stop pages and to higher labor costs, and “(5) A cost-plus-pricing amend ment which requires higher produc tion costs to be translated imme diately into higher prices."

Timing of Bowles' Resignation T ook OP A Aides by Surprise Action been as btep To Bring Truman Veto j Of Extension Bill By the A&suciated Press Chester Bowles took his own t top aides by surprise when he . chose the time he did to resign as stabilization director. His associates had expected him to quit promptly if President Tru man should approve the stripped down price control extension bill passed by Congress. They were caught off balance with his decision to act even before the OPA measure, which he has termed an inflationary booby trap, reached the President's desk. Mr. Bowles wrote his letter of resignation yesterday morning and sent it to the White “House in the afternoon. Although Mr. Bowles has been at tempting to resign for months, his fresh letter on the subject had not been expected by the President at the time it came, according to Mr. Bowdes’ aides. While Mr. Bowles had no com- ; ment. there was speculation he had decided to quit now in the hope that removing himself from the picture might persuade Congress to adopt the kind of bill he liked. Mr. Bowdes. who had recom mended that the extension measure; CHESTER BOWLES. be vetoed, has some bitter enemies in Congress. They are as much op posed to him personally as to OPA in its present form. In his letter to Mr. Truman, Mr. Bowles expressed the hope that Congress, after receiving a vetoed bill, would extend OPA as is. Mr. Bowles’ resignation might remove one objection to this. What Mr. Bowles will do when he (See~BOWLES~ Page A-3.) Anderson Misses His Prediction On OP A Bill By the Associated pr^s» ALBUQUERQUE, N. Mex., June 29.—Before he had been apprised of President Truman's veto action, Secretary of Agriculture Anderson today had expressed belief that the President would sign the compromise OPA bill. He told newsmen he had talked from here with the President yes terday and with the Agriculture De partment several times concerning the measure. Secretary Anderson, in whose hands would have been placed the continuance or removal of price control on agricultural products had the President signed the measure, refused to say whether he favored removel of ceilings on meat. “I don't want to say anything definitely until the bill actually is signed and I see what it provides and what the legal department says about it,” the Secretary said. “Then I think the President will cover those points and I'd rather have it come from him.” .* Secretary Anderson is here on business after attending the funeral for his mother in California. Truman Signs Bill to Extend District Rent Control 1 Year President Truman today signed legislation extending the District’s residential rent control system for another year from December 31. The bill was piloted through the Senate recently by Acting Chairman Hoey of the Senate District Com mittee and House approval was given at the request of Chairman MacMillan of the House District Committee. Rent Administrator Robert • F. Cogswell had declared the extension wfas needed because he found the housing shortage here was as bad or worse than at any time during the war. District rent control is in no manner connected with OPA.

Wyatt Fears 10-25% Jump In Home Costs Under OPA Bill By th« Associated Press Cost of the average newly built home will jump 10 to 25 per cent if tile OPA extenson bill becomes law. Housing Administrator»Wilson Wyatt reported today. Dejected at the potential rise in prices of building materials em bodied in the measure sent to Pres ident Truman last, night, Mr. Wyatt said: “This would mean that the new ‘low cost’ house is a $10,000 house. That's a little exaggerated, but not much. I “We had plans set to push down new-dwelling costs. Now we can’t even hold our present price position —and it is bad enough." Less gloomy, Civilian Production Administrator John D. Small said he w'ould “have no worry” if Indus try and labor use self-restraint in pushing for higher prices and higher wages. Yet there is room in the bill for prices to soar high enough to touch off a new wave of wage demands and strikes—“it’s a danger that could occur,” he warned, though “it needn’t.” Moreover, he asserted, there is “real danger” that manufacturers waiting for higher prices, might withhold their products from the goods-starved public, if OPA goes slowly in making the price changes permitted. The act gives OPA 60 days in which to move. Withholding—in meat and grain, for instance—is “affecting your daily life already.” Mr. Small reminded reporters at a news conference. Neither Mr. Wyatt nor Mr. Small would say whether he had urged President Truman to accept the bill or to veto it in the hope of ge.tting a temporary resolution through Congress extending OPA as is.

Fund Bills Jam Congress at End Of Fiscal Year House Bars UNRRA Aidfor Countries That Censor News By tr*o Associated Press The usual fiscal year-end ap propriation log jam crowded Congress today, complicated by a “no news—no cash” amend ment added by the House to an UNRRA supply bill. More than half a dozen major supply measures carrying an esti mated $15,000,000,000 to finance a score of Federal agencies during the new Government year starting Mon day piled up in the Senate and the House. Both branches convened early as their leaders led a'dogged drive to provide for a new fiscal year before midnight ticks away the old year tomorrow being a Government holi day. There was little doubt that the fiscal hurdle would be cleared In time—but, just in case, a deficiency appropriation bill passed some time ago made provision against “payless pay days” for Government employes in the event of a stalemate. Deficiency Bill Controversial. It carried a clause permitting Gov ernment agencies to incur normal obligations after today in the event their regular appropriation bills are not enacted before the new fiscal year starts. mn me largest but one of the most controversial of the bills hang ing fire is the $724,571,909 deficiency measure financing, among other things, future activities of the Of fice of Price Administration and the United Nations Relief and Rehabili tation Administration. House Republicans tried half heartedly and without success to lop $26,650,000 from the $106,650,000 OPA fund. But, with substantial Democratic assistance, they wrote into the $465, 000,000 UNRRA allotment a ban against use of any of the money for aid to countries not allowing Ameri can correspondents to report with out censorship on UNRRA opera tions. Labeled by opponents as “a slap at Russia,” the amendment admittedly was aimed at Ukrainia and Byelo russia. two Soviet republics which, President Truman reported to Con gress. have not agreed to allow American correspondents to report without censorship on UNRRA activities. The House approved It by a 228-to-85 count. Chances in Senate Doubtful. Its chances in the Senate were doubtful. Only eight months ago the Senate refused to go along on a similar amendment written bv the House into another UNRRA bill. Just before sending the bill to the Senate, the House discarded a pre viously-approved amendment ban ning use of any UNRRA funds for supplies shipped to Europe after next December 31 and to the Far East after next March 31. The reversal came after UNRRA Director La Guardia threatened to resign his post if the amendment became law. It would be impossible to administer the program with such a restriction, Mr. La Guardia said in a letter to Chairman Cannon of the House Appropriations Commit tee. So the House took out the amend ment by a vote of 84 to 65, leaving the UNRRA funds free for obliga tions until June 30, 1947. Other Major Supply Bills.

Not a voice was raised in opposi tion when Senator O’Mahoney. Democrat, of Wyoming, chairman of the District Subcommittee of the Appropriations' Committee, moved late yesterday that the Senate insist; on its action in raising the lump sum Federal payment from $6,000 - 000 to $10,000,000 for the fiscal year beginning Monday. Tlte House the day before had re fused to accept the $4,000,000 in crease, and had returned the bill to its Conference Committee. I i omerence Likely Today. No definite time has been set for further negotiations, but it was pos sible the managers for the two branches might confer today In a ; renewed effort to settle this one re maining dispute in the District sup ply bill.

District has been materially 1 increased.” “The cost of the municipal gov ernment of Washington should be distributed equitably among the beneficiaries.” Senator O'Mahoney continued, “and no one can deny that the Federal Government and all the Federal officials and em ployes are among the principal ben eficiaries of the facilities furnished here.” Cites Tax Gains. Senator G'Mahoney pointed out that, taking property taxes alone including realty, personal property and motor vehicles— the collections in 1941 were $780,446 greater than in 1940, when Congress made the last increase from $5,000,000 to $6,000,000; in the Federal share. In 1942, he said, the same taxes had increased by $901,366 over 1941,: and in 1943 the receipts from these1 local taxes had increased by $1,264, 967. In 1944 the increase was $927, 009 and in 1945 it was $513,538. “Accordingly, on property taxes alone, the taxpayers of the District have paid annually an increase ranging from $513,000 to $1,264,000 to defray the expenses, while the Federal Government’s increase has been only $1,000,000,” said the Wyoming Senator. "When wre take into consideration the individual income, corporation income, inheritance and estate taxes, it becomes clear that the Dis trict taxpayer has annually assumed increased burdens for the support of the District out of all proportion to; the Federal contribution."

June 29.—State’s attorney William J.

Capt.
