WEDNESDAY. -APRIL 2/1, 19-16 Chamber Would Remove Controls Government Misguided In Inflation Battle, Schmidt Declares " liV EIJLAUK MoDOWKLI, United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON. April 24. (UP) — l«e U. s. Chamber of Commerce today asked Congress to end all •subsidies and all price controls except rent ceilings by next Oct. 31 The plea was made by Dr. Emerson p. Schmidt, the chamber's economic research director. He said in testimony prepared for the Senate Hanking Committee that (he government is battling the symptoms of inflation instead of the causes and so cunnot possibly succeed. The committee is considering legislation to extend price controls beyond next June 30. The house already has passed a nine-month extension containing restrictive amendments which price officials say would make the act impossible to administer. Schmidt said the government's policy of permitting wage increases while trying to continue subsidies and enforcement of price controls was "economic myopia." lie called for a "coordinated, overall decontrol program involv- insprices. wages, fiscal policy, foreign , lending and all other factors thiil bear on our current imbalance between supply and demand." "Wo do not appear to be progressing toward decontrol under the government, policies now in vogue," Schmidt said. He echoed the )>lea of Robert A. Wason. president of I be National Association of Manufacturers, who told the committee yesterday that the OPA Is "engaging in a gigantic bluff" when it says it Is holding the line and preventing inflation. Wason said that "price control 4 is not preventing inflation" and r nsked the committee to remove nil controls on manufactured goods on June 30. "It is time to stop being bluffed by the phoney figures and misleading claims put out by the OPA," ..Wason said. "We are in (he midst of a serious inflation .. and .'?A is. in and of itself, one of the most powerful and dangerous inflationary forces." "Through its scare campaign, it is frightening the American public into spending its savings. ..it is holding down production and preventing the flow at goods onto the market which would meet the people's pent-up demands. "Giv e us nn opportunity to prica the black marketeers out of business, to put an enti to the consumer gouging that is bein» practiced by chiselers under the protection of OPA. Permit us to flood the markets with goods that the public wants at prices that are fair." Schmidt, said government wage policy during and since the war has been "inflationary in the extreme." "Perhaps never in history have a government's economic advisors been so grievously in error as were those of the present administrn- , tian before VJ Day. They could ||> see nothing but collapse at war's end and therefore a number of (ARK.) COU1UBU NKWS U. S. Farmers' 'Know How' Speeds Use Of New Techniques Gained In Wartime By 1IAKKV W. FKAN'T/. United Fress SUff C'orrrtpondeiil WASHINGTON (UI'I— Rapid np- plicnlion of new techniques. eruii>>- menl and seed varieties will usher a new eni of farm life in this country during the next decade. The scientific "know how" of American industry, which startled the world in the production of w.iv materials, has a postwar counterpart in the swift acceptance of new processes and modes of life by the agricultural population. The phrase "know how," expressing the capacity of American workers to accomplish technical tasks skillfully, was perhaps the most popular slang term born of the second world war. The fiirm population seems now to accept scientific innovations in the same spirit. Research Diverted Every phase of production, marketing, and consumption of farm products now undergoes transformation. The vast experimental programs made necessary during wartime by the sudden interruption of agricultural and forcstal products from many countries are now diverted to (he needs of peace. Hybrid grain varieties suited to new climatic conditions, mechanical harvesting of cotton and sugar cane, breeding of turkeys or cattle to the pnrticulur «MS preferred for market, improved methods for sitcli- lime-honorcd tasks as milking cows dehydrations of meats, control of diseases of honey-bees, designing of clothes for farm workers, arc a few among thousands of innovations being applied in the national agricultural economy. Experts say that fanners arc disposed to accept new and better methods when their economic value is apparent. But new methods put new burdens of skill and management upon the fanners and "know how" becomes as vital to agricul- stcps were taken to counteract.! imagined deflationary pressures. ' "Unless we can assure a higher order or economic insight and slatemanship, we arc likely to continue to be led into more and mote economic chaos," Schmidt said the government and labor union argument that wages can be increased 15 to 20 per cent in a relatively short time without any price effects except a slight bulge "borders on the irresponsible." "When the facts come to lie known in the months ahead, the American people will be con fronted with price increases closely corresponding to the current wage increases," he predicted. "Yet they have been led to believe otherwise by their govrmneul." He said he "must frankly raise the question" whether the present request to extend OPA for another year i "will not : be repatcd with equal intensity a year from now, and again « second vear Irom then." "If price control is continued on and on, is this likely to so condition the American people to controls and make them so subservient to these controls, that they will ever generate enough individuality and realism to check these controls?" he asked. "A government crutch can be used too long." lure as in manufacturing Industries. Krain Center In Md. Brain for the immense system of .scientilic agriculture In the United States is the Agricultural Research Center at Ueltsvllle, Md.. devoted to research "for better farming and farm living." largest Institution of Its kind in ihe world. Beginning in 1910 with 475 acres, the Research Center now spreads over m.ooo acres, of which about 2.200 arc devoted to a Research Center for Klsh and Wildlife. Nine bureaus of the Department of Agriculture have units at Beltsville. and its 2,000 scientific workers include agronomists, architects, bacteriologists, biochemists botanists, chemical engineers, en-' lomoloi;ists. Bruin technologists and many other specialists. Three thousand farm animals are kept for experimentation, and 5.500 .small animals for laboratory tests. The Research Center at Bclts- ville co-operates with nivlcnlturnl experiment stations In all of the •18 states, and also tends aid to many foreign countries. It is only a short distance from Washington and the agricultural attaches of many embassies maintain regular contact with its work and publications. Typical new marvel of agricultural science is the hybrid 80-day corn (inaiKc). It grows and ripens in a short summer season being ready for harvest by early September, with Ihe result that the culture of maize is now being rapidly extended to Northern areas where early autumn frosts had always before excluded corn. Home-grown feed corn thus promotes the economy on a great number of dairy farms. . Climates Iteprixiucdl Illustrative of the revolutionary changes, n iid potentially of worldwide significance is the laboratory production of climates by the United Slates Deportment of Agriculture I his has enabled unprecedented experiments aimed at ttie improvement of pasture and grass lands At State College, Pa., i.s ' tb c United States Regional Pasture Research Laboratory, which co-operates with 12 Northeastern states in the .solution of pasturage problems. Control chambers have been built to reproduce any kind of climate for research purposes. Just as the wind tunnel" facilitates the swift development of aviation, these "control chambers" enable the immediate observation of all factors affecting the growth of grasses and forage plants. The chambers arc designed to control air temperature soil temperature, relative humldtv and the length of day. Experts can observe the effect of air and soil temperature on seedlings, the effect of temperature or restorngc of food reserves in plants after clipping, the filed of length of light and dark periods on seed growth, and tht value of seed disinfectants.
