(UP) — President Truman will renew his anti-inflation campaign in the near future with direct appeals to key industries whose prices he thinks are still loo high, informed sources revealed today. / •Administration official., were said to be making detailed' price ami profit .studies of basic industries, including construction, steel and automobiles. When the figures are completed, Mr. Truman will i»cl down to rases witli individual industries which seem to him to be keeping prices up. Informed quarters said Ihe president's latest campaign would be one of "Intense moral suasion." Mr. Truman has not made up his mind as yet whether his appeals will be public or whether they will be directed only to the industries concerned, these sources said. The President's previous pleas for lower price., have been made in genera! terms. Administration advisers, including secretary of Treasure John "inydcr and Secretary of Commerce ''ell Harriman, have met with leaders of the steel and lislruction industries. But they were not armed with cost and Tiro- fits sheets and .their ncgotations failed. Steel is regarded a s a key to the entire price structure because it is a component par', of numberless products. Building nmtcrals arc- twice as high as In lf)39. Construction activity, which was expected to absorb workers laiil off in other lines is lagging, This was emphasized in a Bureau of Labor Statistics report that new home building in the first four months of this year was behind the corresponding 1916 period, and that private home builders spent $3,000- ODO less in april than in January. At the same time, the President's top economic advisor s are not discouraged by the fact that the "talk prices d:>»-rr campaign IMS failed to bring about widespread price cutting. The "deflationary gap" between prices and wages was narrowe.l, they, said, by payroll increases uf from S6.0CO.OO.C03 to W.OOp.OOOJOW.- 000 won in Current iS-ceiit-aii-liour wasjp settlements. lAloite these economists said, they'atlributcd this to the president's campaign. Meanwhile i,t was learned, the President's Council of Economic advisors is preparing a re)»rt on th« dangers of a slump if prices are too high to enable consummcrs to buy the goods which the nation can produce.

Lynching Feared; Can't Find Victim North Carolina Police Puzzled Over Failure To Find Negro's Body JACKSON, N. C.. May 'M. (Ul'l— Sleepy-eyed state hi;;;iw.iy patrolmen under crackling orders from Cov. Gregg Cherry lo "spare! no efforts" swarmed the ,'oads of rural Northampton County ai;ain today for traces of a missing; youm; Negro and the mob of white men who scb.- ed him from jail here yesterday. More' than 80 patrolmen Ilooelcel into Jnckson and nearby Rl.-h Square to aid sherill's deputies and State Bureau of Investigation agents but there was siil! no sign of Godwin (Buddy) Bush, 21, or [he- mobsters who seized t,;;n. •He was believed to have been lynched. Meanwhile, speculation mounted t in Jackson that the young Negro 1 might have escaped from u, c mo b and gone into hiding. Officers studied tracks in the soft earth across the street from 'the jail, which appeared to have been ma.-lc by a running man who slipped r.nd fell. One family whose identity w;,s guarded said they thought they jaw a man break from a voup of cars and dart between (.w > houses -is I the mob left the jail. About' the same time they heard a shot, they said. The jailer who lo.s'. the •jrisin- cr also reported hearing what sounded like a shot or automobile backfire. Tried to Warn .lailcr Officers, however, were (fghl- lippcd on this possibility. Grey-haired Jailer A. w. Edwards received a frantic wamin™ not lo surrender his keys only 15 minntr-s after the armed white men seized the young Negro sawmill worker and whisked him away. District Solicitor Ernest R Tyler revealed that he had telcp,i":icd Edwards from his home at Uoxohcl too late to save Bush from ahduc- tion. Tyler said he had heard there might be trouble and called Edwards to warn him. Bush was arrested un a charge of attempted assault after ho was identified by three Rich Square youths —Robert Branch. Rudolpn Evans and Robert Moellin. Trimly-built Mrs. .M:u;;:ircL Allm Bryant, honey-haired taincl of tb» attacker's advances, could not po-,i- livcly identify Bush -n 11,0 Nc=ro man who lunged at her from a dark alley and chased her down the sidewalk.
