"The committee has souijht to find an' alternative to tile conclusion that you admit those facts to . be hue, that yon are unable lo |k explain or contradict tllcm," the I committee said. "It cannot find such alternat ive." Witnesses before the committee have testified that May "pressured" the War Department into giving war orders to the Hi-linn munitions combine and that he had a financial stake in one of the companies. May, who has denied stcad- faslly that he over profited personally llirnu^h his relations with thc cmnlHnc, has been asked rc- jieatcdly by the Senate cninmil- tee to testify before it in open session.

In most areas, prices leveled off al old OPA ceilings or at. new and higher, rates set during the two weeks since Ihe expiration ol price control. Price-lugs on choice livestock, however, rcac'ned new highs at three mitfwcstcrn stockyards. A load of choice steers .sold for $23.25 a hundredweight nt Chicago's Union Stockyards yesterday, exceeding lhc previous record of 5-3 set Wednesday, a was the fourth new record set since the end of the OPA. New all-time high prices were recorded at Omaha South St. Paul, Minn. Meuawhile, buyers' strikes yain- cl momentum in many cities and an emergency committee planned a block-by-block canvas of Chicago to mobilize for the return ol controls. The committee is composed of representatives of 05 labor, veterans, business, political, church and civic groups. On the rent, control front, the Michigan legislature approved a limited slate measure limiting landlords to a 15 per cent increase ovcr June 30 levels. A bill passed by the Senate would return rents to the June 30 figure except where states have their own regulations. There we're reporls of many. large groups banding together to hold thc price line regardless of congressional action. The New York Hotel Association denied reports of an immediate increase In Hie price of meals, and Paul Krnke, president of the Society ol [ Rcsturanteurs said his orgaiii/a- j tion saw no necessity for incrcas- j ing menu prices. I In addition to Chicago. Washington, New York and Philadelphia, buyers' strikes had been sponsored at Portland, Ore, Jamestown, N. D., Fort Wayne. Intl., Eric, Pa., and Springfield and | Cambridge, Mass. There were .scattered rcporls of other, unorganized demonstrations to protest high prices.
