The wage hoard's industry inem- ers went along with the board's ,abor and public members in approving a regulation allowing 1 em- rtoyers to give automatic pay raises when living costs climb. The industry members said ihe ruling was necessary because farmers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers now generally all get upward revisions in prices as the economy changes, by various "escalation" techniques such as the operation of parity for the farmer. Parity Shifts Monthly (Parity is a pricing formula designed to give farmers a fair price for their products. It shifts every month with the cost of the things farmers have to buy), . "However," the industry members warned, "it must be pointed out that escalator arrangements are not based on sound, economic principles and can quickly lead to grave dangers," They added: "Putting all workers, manufacturers, farmers and merchants on escalation may easily prove the first- step to national bankruptcy. "It resembles the kind of seU- Enehcratinj* and rapidly-compounding inflation that at first adjusts the value of the wage dollar every six months. then every three months, then every month, then weekly, then daily—as we have seen in other countries.

(AP) — The Senate Investigations subcom- ; mittce today ordered "a full investigation" of Reconstruction Finance Corporation loans to the American Lithofold Corporation of St. Louis and any passible connection of William M.

Senator Hoey (D-NCt chairman of the subcommittee, announced the hearings will start "as soon as the facts can be properly assemnlcrt, which will probably be early in September. Senator Nixon (R-Cali(>, a subcommittee member, told a repoiler "1 issume we will call Boyle as a witness" along with certain govern-, ment officials. ' There is no effort to prejudge the case," Hoey said, "but merely to develop the fact.s and clarify the situation." The American Lathofold loan has been a hotly-disputed issue in Congress. Senators Capehart (H-Inui and Brlckcr (R-Ohio) mentioned it in a recent report to the Senate assailing Boyle and President Truman as "graduates of the most corrupt political machine in the history of this country."

Morals, Inflation, World Peace To Be 1952 Issues, Three Say FRENCH LIOK, Ind., Aug. 25. (AP)—Three Midwestern governors today placed public morals, inflation, and world peace as major issues in the 1952 election campaign. The governors are Henry P. Schricker of Indiana, Adlai E.

The conference, at the French Lick Springs Hotel, will end tcnight with an address by Vice-Prestdent Barkley. Schricker listed a.s a prime 1952 issue the "peace and security of the weapon is inflation in America." Schricker declared, "the moral fabric of America is in distress and needs to be reconstructed." The governors said the Truman Fair Deal projratn and what they called "distrust and division by epithets and slander" also would be issues next year. The governors said they believed morning. The FBI and the Rochester -sher-+- iff, Lawrence Norris, captured the two young men yesterday after the Pemiscot authorities had determined the name and home address of one of them. Sheriff Ncnis said this morning that the boys had planned to murder and rob a taxi driver and that it was just an accident that Thomas B. (Sport) Ijipscomb was the victim. The youtlis were identified as Louis Council, 23, and Kenneth Fisher. 21. Connel was born in Pernis cot County and live d th ere for several years, but his family has lived in DeLong.

He .was to direct the driver to a point'where they would pick up Fisher, who would get in the back seat.

Connell's sister was quoted as saying he told her "we knocked a taxi driver in the head and ?re using his car to get away." Pemiscot County Sheriff Jake Ciaxton j °™ said. With this lead, PemLscot County Prosecuting Attorney Elmer Peal issued* warrants for the two young men. Connell was named but the other warrant w:?s a "John- Doe" because his name was unknown.

(AP) — Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway today sent a blistering message to top Red commanders in Korea and left it up to them whether armistice talks would continue in Kaesong. The supreme Allied commander said lie was willing to resume negotiations, halted by the Reds. But he rejected as "malicious falsehoods" Communist accusations that United Nations forces violated Kacsong's neutrality. Reds broke off the talks two (lays ago. They demanded a "satisfactory" answer to their chargs that a United Nations warplane attacked Kaesong to murder the Red delegation. nidgway's reply said the charga 'as "so utterly false, se preposter- us and so obviously manufactur- d" that it did not merit a reply. The next step was to the Com- nunUts. Ridgwny's scathing mes- age gave them a hard choice. The harshly-worded reply was c-nt lo Kim II Sung, North Koenn premier, and Gen.

V. ill direct my representatives to meet with yours, with a view to seeking a reasonable armlstio agreement." The Allied delegation, headed by Vice Adm. C. Turner Joy, stood by at United Nations advance headquarters in Munsan, ready to go to Kaesong If the Reds give tha word. Ridgway's reply, in tone and content, came as no surprise to observers here. They said he could hardly apologize for incidents he had already branded as "manufactured In id* vancc."
