WASHINGTON, June 0. (UP) — The Senate Banking Committee today agreed "without enthusiasm or objection" to send to the Senate floor an OPA extension bill rcwr*- ing many or the government's present stabilization i>olicics. Price Chief Paul Porter and Economic Stabilizer Chester Bowles reportedly have said they will rcsii;n If the Senate bill is approved by Congress hi its present form. Banking Chairman Robert F. Wagner, D., N. Y., said he would Tile n minority report. He expected several other members of the cum- inittec to Join him on it. Democratic Leader Alben V.' Barkley. Ky., said that since hi would put Ihc committee bill l>cfo>-- the Senate he could not join thL administration dissenters. But, he said, the fact thai he reported the bill "was not to be iv- Earded as an endorsement of [l-s various provisions or of tho bill as a whole." Barkley said he did not believe that any member of the comm'.t- tee, which worked on the controversial measure for nearly two months, was "for all of the bill." Many Controls Eliminated In its present form, the bill would strip OPA of controls on food, Hit ceilings on meat, poultry and dairy products and eliminate OPA's maximum average price rules designed to increase production of low-cost clothing. Administration of any food controls retained would be transferred to the Agriculture Department. Sen. Eugene D. Millikin, R.. Col., a member of the Republican bloc which succeeded in writing into the measure most of the features condemned by administration officials, said the bill left the committee with "no objection and non enthusiasm." No committee vote was recorder! , ^bn the decision to report the bill to .A the Senate. £'^i The Senate will begin considera- t^Flion of the bill Monday. \ •; Bowles has called the bill n "mon- ^strons thing" which is "even worse' 1 Ihaii crippling amendments attached •;tb''a- HoirMf-afiprbved OPA bill. He said the House legislation was : ticket for "a joy-ride to inflation." His aides declare that Bowles has no intention of staying on his job "armed with sofa pillows at a time when we need our heaviest anti-inflation artillery." In its present form, the committee bill would extend OPA for a year beyond the present June 30 expiration date. Committee approval of most anti-OPA amendments to the bill wcrc made possible by a solid Republican blou augmented by several Dem- ocrals.
