BLYTKEVILLE (A'KK;\ C0URTEK NEWS Wage Controls Related to OPA Passage of Extension Bill May Mean End of Indirect Regulation. WASHINGTON. June 27. (UP) — The OPA bill ncai:ng a final vote in Congress would force on immediate revision—if not a complete scrapping — of government wago controls, administration officials said today. The present wage stnblllmlin:i program calls only for Indirect controls. A manufacturer, for instance, may grant all the wage In creases he wants to. But lie can not use them to justify higher OPA prices on his product unless the pay .boosts are approved by stabilization officials. This has fortified management's resistance to wnge increases. The new OPA bill, however, carries an amendment to require OPA to allow manufacturers their 1941 prices, plus increased- production costs since then. These production costs would include all pay raises, regardless of whether they h«d au- provnl, from stabilization officials. Federal officials say this would put indirect wage control out cf business. The present policy was adopted in mid-February, and was used to settle the steel strike then and set a pattern for settlement of later labor disputes. May Mean Direct Controls Under the pending OPA bill. wages could be controlled only through .direct restrictions, officials say. Direct controls were In effect during the war when no wage increases could be granted without, government approval. Since the stabilization law was enacted ;in October, 1042, wage policy has .been left In the linucli ot the President. The question of reviving direct controls would be one for President Truman to deride. A proposal to adopt such controls probably would meet heavy opposition from organized labor and per- liaps some government officials. When the present policy was Iwlng formulated, the Labor Department and the Wage Stabilization Board successfully resisted proposals for! reviving direct controls. One government official said Mr. Truninn could not tighten wage controls while price controls WRrc being relaxed. Some officials believed 1:10 oio nnd AFL might withdraw their WSB members if wnge controls were continued. Such action would destroy the board unless Mr. Truman wanted to reconstitute it with only public members. Trolley Buses To Replace Street Cars LITTLE ROCK, June 27.
