I'nitrd 1'rcss Staff ('urresiwruirnl WASHINGTON. Al>rll 29. <UP>The American Veterans Committee urged Congress today to preserve :\ strong OPA lest wild intlntion nullify Hie pensions. lonns and othei financial aids granted veterans. In an obvious slap nt the umcnd- mont-ilddlcd OPA bill approved by the House, AVC national represen- tntlvc Chat Paterson snid OPA should be strengthened—not weakened in its tight to tiiainlain .strong pi-ice control program." He told Ihe Senate Bunking Com- 1 mittee that veterans would i>e among llio hardest hit in any inflationniy period A-.K! yet. lie said, the veteran has been the "forgotten man" in the ''mail scramble or special interests for greater speculative profits." "Price control is the basis upon which the veteran's whole future economic well-being is built." he said. "What Rood are disability pensions, living allotments, liberal loans and other forms of financial assistance if the veteran can not Inly anything with the money when he Bets it?" The Senate committee is con.sid- ering legislalion to extend OPA for one year beyond its present June HO expiration dale. The House approved a nine-tJiouth extension but wrote in so many restrictions on OPA thai adminislralion spokesmen said it amounted to repeal of price control. Palcrson conceded that OPA hud made some mistakes. So did Ihe Army, lie saiel, but Ulerc- certainly PAGEFTVB . no move iturlne the war toi abolish the Army. The OPA, like Ihe Army, wiis set up to fltiht a 'deadly enemy" he declared, and should not be hamstrung. Twenty-three oilier consumer or- KimlzHllons joined In the fight for OPA. In A statement presented by Caroline F. Ware of the Amerlenn Association of University Women, they told the committee that, the dcstruetlon of price control would benefit only "the special Interests seeking speculative gain." , She urged the Senate to reject "pach and every one of the cri 1 ,)l>ling amendments by which the House wrecked the price control bill." She .snld she spoke for 23,000,000 "plain people who work, pl.iy, live and vote." Besides the Association of University Women, the 23 organizations included the American Association of University Professors, the General Federation of Women's Clubs, the Union (or Democratic Action, the Council for Social Action at Ihe Congregational Christian Churchef and organizations of Catholic, Jewish and Neyro women. The OPA'.s Consumer Advisor.v Committee also asked the Senate to overrule the House ami approve an extension bill containing no crippling amendments. In a report which emphasized that it. was not on OPA'.s payroll, the ad Training Magic Of Ben Jones Keeps Derby Rivals Guessing By O.SC.IK KKAI.KV Hulled Press Sports Writer LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 29. <UP> —Watch lor Mr. Jones that's what they're saying today throughout the Blue Grass country as plain Ben readies Culumel Farm's In Karnesl for the prlwd Kentucky Derby this Saturday.
