Secrest Demands Repeal Of OPA At Marietta VOLUME 88 ESTABLISHED IN 1859 Says Congress Has Made Political Football of Issue Bob Secrest, candidate for cong ress, demanded repeal of all OPA except rent control, in a speech at a large Democratic rally in the court house in Marietta, Monday night Of the OPA question, Secrest said: “OPA is one of the live is sues of the day and I have never been one to duck or straddle an issue.” Speaking of the OPA he asserted that “congress made a political football of it. The bureaucrats, by dictatorial and silly policies, have completed the wreck. “I don’t see any way, or any place, to put another patch on the old tube. Let us throw it away and give a fair trial to the greatest of all price controls, free competi tion. If that fails to meet expecta tions, a satisfactory solution can be adopted. “While, however, the acute hous ing shortage exists, a measure of rent control will be needed. Where injustice in rentals prevails, either1 to the tenant or landlord, author ity exists to correct it. “Production is the only way to get competition and time has prov en that OPA retards production. The sooner it is killed, the sooner meat and other products will flow to market, the sooner the working man will find meat in his dinner pail. ... “There are two head of cattle, and an equal number of hogs, sheep, and lambs for each person in the United States. I want to see more meat on the plate and less on the hoof. A ... “I will vote to repeal OPA, with the exception of rent control, and at the same time do all I can to stop the exportation all over the world of meat, sugar, and manu factured articles that Americans cannot buy. I can’t understand why Congress adjourned without acting to keep in this country things our own people need. “Inflation is caused by much money and too little to buj. would be hard to ■magme less goods than exist under OPA at the present time. “Some prices may increase but I think competition and increased production will soon bring: them to reasonable levels. It not. 111 be the first to demand a remedy. “It is foolish to contend that the government needs the emergency powers in peace that were required during the fighting of the greatest war in history. Such a demand can come only from those who swim, in swivel chairs and want to hold their jobs.” State President To Speak At Meeting Joe Thomas, president o£ Ohio Trustees & Clerks assoc int will be the principal speaker, Wed nesday morning.

THE JOURNAL “COVERS NOBLE COUNTY LIKE THE SUNSHINE” Veterans Housing Problems Loom For Commissioners GI Housing May Be Sold At Emergency End, State Explains The Noble county commissioners have been advised by E. G. Schuessler, chief counsel for the attorney general’s office, that if they use their state grant of over $12,000.00 for the veteran’s housing program, they may sell these prop erties at the end of the period of emergency and turn the funds realized over to the county general fund. Commissioners from the various counties in Ohio gathered last week in Columbus to present their individual problems arising out of interpretations of the recently en acted legislation appropriating $6,000,000 in state funds for dis tribution to the counties upon ratio of the county population to the state-wide population. The Noble county commissioners have not yet perfected a local set up but they have indicated they will participate in the program, ft is hoped they will start the ball rolling soon in order that all vet erans here might get some idea of how and when they will benefit. Representatives of various boards throughout the state asserted that not only were their respective al locations “only a drop in the buck et.” hut that in the smaller coun ties which received comparatively small allocations from the state the commissioners were confronted with the problem of distribution of the funds over the entire county when a single community required all or more than the grant received from the state. Questioned concerning an inter pretation of the Housing Act in which it is provided that title re main in the hands of the board of county commissioners, while at the same time authorizing the commis sioners to lease veterans’ housing projects, Schuessler told the com missioners that the courts have taken the position that a broad in terpretation should be given to laws in which there is such am biguity. Schuessler pointed out the com missioners could retain a title int erest, without holding fee simple to the property, just as an interest is represented by a 99-year lease. He also advised the commis sioners that there was nothing in the act which would prohibit the commissioners from designating a private individual, company or cor poration as the administrator of such a veterans’ housing project, and to collect rentals upon such property.

No Wonder the Meat Shortage Is Apparent! A freak accident was reported to this office during the past week. A yearling heifer, the proper ty of Sebastian Crock, near South Olive, died as the result of being “thrown” by a fallen tree. It is believed by eye-witness spectators, that the heifer wandered into the center of the tree and became entangled, consequently was tossed on to the limbs and became helpless. Death resulted. A loss of 600 pounds on the hoof with the present scarcity of meat, makes a person wonder what is next to cause a further shortage. An OPA official would be the logical man to contact!
