PAGE FOURTEEN BLYTHEV1LLK. (ARK.) COUK1KK NKW3 Truman Group Plans to Have Another Crack at Creating Control Board WASHINGTON, April 17. (AP)— President Truman's mobilization •dvisory board makes one more try today to Mt up an acceptable new wage controls agency which would handle, along with other duties, it least some labor disputes arising in the defense program. Organized labor and management have failed to agree, throughout a long series of past efforts by the board and others, on what, type of board they would support. If they do not get together shortly, Mr. Truman is believed ready to name a panel of only public members—leaving off labor and industry' representation. How soon the President would have to act is a problem. Economic Stabilizer Eric Johnston is reported to have a panel of names reudy pending a decision on what kind of a board is needed. A public board presumably would be more or less temporary, serving probably until July 1. That Is when the Defense !*roduction Act authorizing the present wage and price controls expires. Afreemenl Unlikely There seemed little likelihood of agreement between union leaders and management representatives at an early huddle today the full n- member advisory group, beaded by Mobilization Director Charles E. Wilson and also Including agriculture and public members, was to meet an hour later at the White House. ' The management representatives :—speaking for the National Association of Manufacturers, U. S. Chamber of Commerce, business advisory council, and committee for economic development — held a leries of closed caucuses yesterday. Reports which dribbled out i.-ere Obituaries that there could be no agreement on a dispute board unless labor yielded. Unions Want Board The management group wants to limit disputes to be cleared through a Wage Stabilization Board to tliosc Involving wage issues or- Interpretation of board orders. Labor unions want to channel virtually all mobilization disputes to such a board. ...j , ~.-., jrw... w ,, u j , ii, 0 ii^in, eye smarten irom t/ie demanded Brown of the terrified smoke—he's blind in his left eye woman whose hands already were "~ —'' " Calvin J.
