April 18. (UP) — A rebellious House today passed and sent lo the Senalc an amendment- riddled' price control bill despite warnings by Economic Stabili/.er Chester Bowles that it would start the nation on an inflationary "ioy ride to disaster." The final vote passing the bill was 355 to 42. It was one of Ihe worst legislri- tive defeats suffered by President Truman, who had requested a one- year extension of price control without crippling amendments. 'lire measure would extend the price control act only until n-.-xt March 31. It carries a series of amendments which administration supporters said would "wreck" price control. The amendments provide for elimination of meat .subsidies on June 30, with n corresponding rise in prices; termination of all price rollback subsidies on farm products next Dec, 31: and a guarantee of cost-plus-a-reasoiiable profit to producers, distributors and retailers on all items. Warning Unheeded The votes for a decisive mnrtific.i- r lion of price control were taken by ! a coalition of Republicans and farm bloc Democrats who turned a de if ear lo warning by OPA Administrator Paul Porter that The action amounted to "repeal of price control." The majority of the House, however, felt it was time for a lot less' price control. Administration leaders looked to the Senate to eliminate some of th« drastic House provisions and salvage price conlrol legislation in .something nearer the form sought by Mr. Truman^ "" Final' House aclion came afle/ n - - j 1-t-tov.ttil 10-rvoiir Session 'yesterday during which the Republican-Dem.i- cratlc coalition went on an amendment rampage. Just before passage today. the House rejected by a roll call vole of 310 to 20 a motion by Rep. John E. Rankin. (Dem.. Miss.), to send Hie bill back to the banking committee. Rankin's maneuver blocked any possibility of nn tion move to recommit the bill for consideration of a newly-drafted measure. The rule under which Ihe bill was brought to the floor had provid'sc that there could be only one mo- lion to recommit. Many administration supporters voted for final passage, but it wa; pointed out that this did nol menu that they favored the drastic changes written into the bill. There was nothing for them to do excep to pass the bill on lo Ihc Senate in hope of changing it there. Will Not Resign Meanwhile. Bowles and Porter denied rumors they would resign in protest against the House action. "It is a silly rumor." Porter .said. "There's no truth to it." Bowles denied the rumor In a radio speech last night. "Lei us settle that question right now," he said. "I believe this fight against inflation can and must be won. I know that Ihe American people are behind us, I have full confidence that the will of the American people will prevail. I Inlend to sec this thing through to Ihe finish." Meanwhile, a spokesman for corn- belt livestock feeders told the Senate that if it upholds the House action "it is just going to make Ihe farmer so damn mad he won't feel like marketing anything at nil." Mark Pickell of Chicago, vies president of the Illinois Cattle Feeders Association and secretary of the Corn-Belt Livestock Feeders Association, told the .Senate Agriculture Committee the result would be impairment of the nation's food conservation effor.1. He specifically nssailed provisions to lenninatc subsidies and end price control next March 31.
