THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 1951 . awn COURTBK fAGTS Halt-Inflation Fight Begins To Pay Off / Johnson Says WASHINGTON, APRIL 18. (Pi—The labor-induttry tight ov«r new wage board powers Is rolling on, but a top administration of* llclal claimed the stop-Inflation drive Is starting to pay off. Economic Stabilizer Eric Johnston his said that the Inflationary spiral 1* being checked at last. In fact, he said prices for consumers goods may take t tumble in the next few months because (^abundant factory stocks, "(fhnston conceded that "we have» nbc yet been successful" after two months of effort in settling the ^ wage stabilization board stalemate. He questioned legality of a proposal recommended by the president yesterday. This 'revived speculation that a wage board of al! public members may soon be established. Up to now the administration has been trying to put a board of labor. Industry and public members back Into business. Wants New Board Labor, which yanked its representatives from such a wage board and all other defense agencies in February, wants a new-wage board empowered to handle al! sorts of labor disputes, including wages and virtually every type of working condition. Industry wants the wage boarri confined to settling wage miners alone. President Truman's 17-nmn mobilization advisory board came up with a plan for a new board. It was approved by the advisory board's public, labor and farm members with industry's four members dissenting in the 12-4 vote. The chairman, Mobilization Director Charles i^.Vilsoii, did not vote. ~iie plan of the advisory board'!* majority would have an 18-member board of public, labor and indu.srrs members settle all disputes certified by Mr. Truman, as well as all putes labor and management a«ieec to have the board ict upon. Vigorous protests came immediately from William H. Ruffin. president of the National Associatim of .Manufacturers and from the U S. Chamber of Commerce. Both thp NAM and chamber statements protested such a board could not legally be put into effect over industry's protest?. Giles Ruling Johnston disclosed to a reporter that Attorney General McGru office has so ruled—that a pute-settling board is barred miles- industry assents. On the other hand. Georgi Meany, secretary-treasurer of In AFL, said he thinks the proposed board fills the legal requirement, and that the way is clear for tin President to establish one at once. As Johnston described it, Me Drain's ruling was an interprets tion of the Defense Production Acl containing all the economic contro powers. Some sources believe Mr Truman may go ahead now i»me a board oj nil public, rnem ^Prs to pass oV wage stabilizatio problems, but without powers t settle labor disputes. The act expires June 30 so th fight over the board's make-up ma be tossed into the lap of CongreW Census Bureau Reports Cotton Consumption Up WASHINGTON, April 18, (API- he Census Bureau reported yester- ay cotton consumption (or the per- od of March 4-31 averaged 45,583 ales for each working day.
