Small said the law of supply and demand cannot bring about natural price adjuslmenU "in the short term of a few months.'' Severe shortages particularly In lumber, steel, lead, paper, buiidinn materials, "cannot be relieved overnight by the mere act of removing or altering price controls," he said. Meanwhile, Economic Stabilizer Chester Bowles told trfc House Pood Shortage Committee he hoped price controls and subsidies coulri be ended by July, 1947. He said he and Secretary of Agriculture Clinton p. Anderson once had worked out a program to remove them by July, 1946 but 'that they guessed wrong ! ln"''expectih'g greater unemployment and lower incomes in lower prices. In that case, he said, the government could h'ave started taking off controls and subsidies. ed prison sentences and fines Imposed on four railroad employes in Miami who sold tickets on the black market during the 1943 transportation crisis. The court held that railroad accommodations must not go on a favored basis to "those who will or can pay more because of greater need of longer purse." In a brief session, the court also upheld a 1910 law which gave the American Red Cross Exclusive right o the use of the words "Red Cross" •md the Red Cross symbol, but exempted firms which had been using either before 1905. Detroit city employees now work a .straight 40 ; hour week and get IS per cent more pay. Administrative and civil workers of Tacorna. Wash, also have been put on a five-day week.
