Maybank said he will be will-. Ing to listen to any administration" proposals. Mr.. Truman-ha. 1 ; denounced the present controls law as inadequate to cope with inflation under the rising pressure of vast defense spending. He met yesterday morning to discuss with-his 17-man mobilization advisory committee what Press Secretary Joseph Short called "a probable message to Congress asking for further amendments." Presumably any such message would ask revision of present restriction* on price rollbacks and a ban on meat slaughtering quotas. Mr. Truman and his economic aides have singled out those provisions for criticism. Short said that "naturally , the administration is trying, to.do the best It can with the law »-s It now stands, but he's thinking in terms of another message to Congress.
