Farm Bureau Takes Issue in Price Control Legislation Asserts Bill Without* Teeth Would Bring About Inflation WASHINGTON, D. C. If the congress passes a price control bill without teeth in it mul one that leaves out of ii the mast dangerous factors in bringing about inflation, it will have to shoulder the responsibility for having failed to take draslii- action in time to prevent an economic hurricane, Edward A. O'Neal, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, told members of the Senate Currency and Banking Committee on Dec. 16. Mr. O'Neal's said: statement, in part, "First of all, I wish to pledge the full and aggressive support of the American Farm Bureau Federation, which represents more than two million farm people in 40 states and Puerto Rico, to the President and the congress in an all-out effort to win the war. "Now that we are In war it becomes till the more necessary to provide effective measures to control inflation. We have consistently and aggressively advocated cffectivcv legis- of commoditic.s ;ind .services. "Such legislation is unfair, discriminatory, iuul ineffectual. U is unworthy of the supreme effort which now must bo made to win tho war. This is no lime to play any favorites. Wo want to soo controls applied equitably to all groups—Agriculture, Labor, and Industry. "If yon allow wage increases to go unchecked, you are us sure to luive prices follow each wage increase ivs day follows night. You will have a continuous game of leap-frog that will end in inflation, and in all probability labor will find that its higher wages will buy no more than the origina wage bought before the leiip- ing began. "Wages constitute the greatest single factor in the cost of commodities lation Neither the bill proposed district prior Dorado. to his transfer to £1 New York City is the most important United States market for Christmas trees, the Department of Commerce says. by Mr. Henderson (Price Administrator Leon Henderson) originally to the House Committe, nor the bill subsequently passed by the house, nor the revised bill submitted by Mr. Henderson to this committee, provide effective control of inflation. The chief defect of all three bills is that they provide no control whatsoever over inflationary wages which constitute the greatest single factor in the cost Legislation which inflation but and services will not control mproly hold down the prices and income of some groups and leavcv uncontrolled the greatest single factor in tho cost of commodities, namely, wages, is unfair and will inevitably tend to create disunity because of its great injustices. Price control legislation without authority to control inflationary wages will fail to control inflation. This was demonstrated by the price control efforts made during tho last World War period. "I believe that the rank and file of American working people strongly favor and would support such legislation. The Gallup Poll shows this very conclusively. I would like to insert in the record at this point a copy of the Galup Poll of Nov. 8, 1941 which shows that 66 percent of the Two Robbers Arrested Here Arrest Follows Robbery ot Malvern Early Tuesday Two bandits, who earlier had robbed a small cafe about 1 mile wes of Malvern on highway 67, were arrested at tin- city limits of Hope about 7 o'clock Tuesday morning by stale ami city police.

State police hero received a call from tin.- uhiM-iff at Malvern to halt the two rubbers, which eluded officer-s at Arkadclphiu. State Police .Sergeant L. S. Oillihunty and night, Police Chief John Turner arrested | the pair at the city limits. They were lodged in the Hcnipstead county jail and will be carried back to Malvern sometime during the day, police siid. Just how much loot the robbery net- tod was not known but police recover two slot machines, and a ladies pin so containing about $10 from the automobile.

Roads of SPG on Schedule Network of 13 Miles Inside Huge Project In spite of many days of rain, which at times prevented extensive operations in the field, the complex system of roads within the area of the Southwestern Proving Ground moves steadily toward completion well on schedule, a field inspector at the project stated Tuesday. Expert planning was necessary in the locating of facilities in order to utilize to the greatest possible advantage already existing roads in the more than 77 square miles comprising the proving ground. This has been done with the result that much construction has been elminated. The use of Highway 24 and of the (Bounty iroad connecting the main gate with Highway 4 as the northern and southern patrol roads are excellent examples of the policy of eliminating as much new construction as possible, the inspector stated. More than 13 miles of railroad, to be used in conjunction with the road system, will enable direct contact to be maintained between recovery fields, depots, and administration buildings. The officer was high in his praise of workers on various units of the system who have been compelled to labor under adverse conditions at times, and said that in spite of extremely disagreeable weather occasionally, every man on the job was doing his best toward completion of the system ahead if schedule.

Scouts Collect ^ Much Paper Citizens Respond Heartily to the Campaign Citizens are responding splendidly^' o the Waste Paper Conservation pro- , gram, and Boys Scouts are gathering ' :rom 25 to 50 pounds of paper at each 'louse, the group announced. The greatest difficulty has been that joys must wait ten or fifteen minuses at many houses to get the paper col-~, tected and tied in bundles. If the pa ' per is sorted and eitd they can do a , great deal more work. Scouts from Troop No. 62 have done the most work thus far in the campaign. Clyde Ciffee is Scoutmaster of this troop. Troops 58, 66, and 67 are also helping. Mayor Albert Graves, has expressed his desire to see the City of Hope join wholeheartedly in this campaign. Hundreds of pounds of paper and s boxes are collected from the business district daily and this could be u^?4 if merchants will endeavor to keep the paper clean. Garbage, spoiled goods, etc., should not be thrown in with, clean paper because this makes j$ impossible to use the paper for defense needs. Gold Workers Only 600 persons usually woik in, the manufacture of gold and silver leaf and foil in the United Stales normally, but they manufacture about ?1,500,000 worth of gold leaf annually.
