Across-Board Raise
Favored by Wherry
ly the Associated Prtsi
Senator Wherry, Republican of
Nebraska, said today he is "inclined
to go along” with Congress members
who favor a general rent increase.
Senator Wherry, the Republican
whip, told a reporter he is "not
sold” on a Senate Banking Com
mittee bill which would continue
rent controls through next February
without a blanket increase in
ceilings.
The Nebraskan said he favors a
general increase “in principle,” but
that he has not decided whether to
support a bill Senator Hawkes. Re
publican of New Jersey, plans to
introduce. It would maintain con
trols through April, 1948, permit a
10 per cent rent raise generally and
authorize a 15 per cent increase
under leases guaranteeing no further
increase through 1948.
Senator Hawkes intends to oner
his bill as a substitute for the
Banking Comittee’s measure. Un
der the committee bill, recommen
dations of local advisory boards for
increases or removal of rent ceil
ings on an area basis would go into
effect automatically unless over
ruled within 30 days by Housing Ex*
pediter Frank R. Creedon, who
would take over the program from
OPA.
The House Banking Committee
has given tentative approval to a
bill providing for a general 10 per
cent increase. A final vote by that
committee is scheduled April 16.
The Senate bill may come up for
floor debate about that time.
“I am inclined to go along with
those who believe an across-the
board increase is both justified and
the best way to handle the situa
tion,” Senator Wherry said.
“I don’t know whether it should
be 5 per cent of 10 per cent or what,
but I am about convinced you can’t
do the job on any kind of an area
or hardship basis.”
The present OPA program pro
vides for increases svhen individual
landlords can show' financial hard
ship from current ceilings.

People's Party Gains
Strength in Turk Vote
By th« Associated Press
ISTANBUL, April 7.—The dom
inant People’s Party* apparently
named nine new deputies to the
National Assembly yesterday in a
by-election which passed quietly
despite intense campaign bitterness
and hostility from the Democratic
Party, which refused to participate
in the balloting.
The only real issue was the extent
to which the Democrats were abl<
to keep the voters at home, a jot
they claimed to have done so suc

Takeoff Time Uncertain
For Reynolds Globe Flight
•y tha Aawciotad Pr«u
NEWARK, N. J, April 7;—Newark
Airport officials said today that tire
proposed around- the-world flight
by Milton Reynolds, Chicago pen
manuiacturer, would get off prob
ably tonight, but the plane’s radio
operator—faced with several short
circuits in the communications
equipment—estimated it would take
at least two days to correct the
electrical difficulties.
Mr. Reynolds himself said he
would make no further announce
ments until three hours before his
takeoff in the converted A-36 Doug
las bomber, flown here yesterday
from Roosevelt Field, Long Island.
Officials there had refused per
mission for the around-the-world
takeoff because of what they said
was an excessive gasoline load.
Mr. Reynolds, an experienced
pilot, will serve as navigator aboard
the plane, named the Reynolds
bombshell. It will be .piloted by
Capt. William P. Odom.
Mr. Reynolds is seeking an un
official 55-hour record for the world
circling flight. The present mark
is 91 hours, set by Howard Hughes.

"Y)U wouldn’t knowingly put a friend on the spot; yet, when you name a
friend as your executor, you place upon him the gravest of responsibilitiea
and ask him to assume many complex tasks for which he is, probably,
totally unprepared.
Instead of burdening a single individual with this difficult but im
portant duty, name the Union Trust Company as your executor.
Then, for a fee no greater than an inexperienced executor would
be permitted to receive, your estate will be administered by a
group of trust specialists — free of family prejudices — who will
devote their full time and ability to seeing that your desires ara
carried out to the letter.
You, your attorney, and your life insurance counselor art
invited to come in and discuss your estate plans with our
trust officers. Naturally, there is no obligation.
