King Humbert Declines To Turn Government of Italy Over to Premier WASHINGTON, June 11. <UPl — Sen. Arthur H. Vandenbcrg, R., Mich., proposed today that the Government remove price controls on one big industry In an "experiment" to sec if OPA regulations can safely be eliminated without runaway inflation. He stepped into the opening Srn- atc debate on the restricted OPA extension 1)111 io suggest that it would be worthwhile to make the test since the Government .sooner or Inter "must take a chance" on a return to a free economy. By observing what happen3 to price levels in one de-controlled major Industry, Vandenbcrg said, stn- btliv.ation officials could know more accurately what to expect K all con- Irols were lifted. As it is, he snicl. OPA officials predict that prices of meat, livestock and dairy products will soar if Congress approves the extension bill with the provision to decontrol those items. But none of them, he said .seems able to say ho\v long this intlationai'y "bulge" will continue. Senate Democratic leader Amen W. Barkley, K., who opened debate on the bill, told Vandenburg Hint lhc de-control provision indicated that the banking eonimittKC wanted to experiment in not one but several major industries. "It might take six months or year to find out whether we had selected the right industry," Darkley argued. "In that time the cost to" the American public might ha more than the value of all the evidence wo would have obtained.' ROME:, June 11.
