WASHINGTON, July 18. (UP) — President Tniuum pvcdtct-id toduy Hint prices will continue to rise unless Cimyi'c.s-s passes u bill reviving OPA. He told a news conference (hut price iiu.Tcn.scs during lhj* past Ihreo weeks bure out his prediction thul inlla(ion would follow the end of OPA. I President Tnunan made the predict in ti us e:mfereas renewed elTnrts fur the third successive day to thrash out a cmu- OPA bill thai lit! will siun. Asked whether he thought Congress would pass u .satisfactory OPA extension measure, he said that the reporter's was a.s yood as his. Mr. Tnminn .said that ho would delay appointing a successor lo Kco- noinEc Stabilizer Chester Bov:k-s until there was an OPA law nuking the job necessary. Bowles resigned just before President Truman vetoed a.s unsatisfactory the first OPA bill passed by Congress. As the joint conference on pries legislation met for the third straight day, there was agreement among tlie 14 members on only one score— that no settlement could be reached today. Brightest hope for an agrceir was voiced by Senate Democratic Leader Albt-n W. Hnrklcy, Ky., who thought It might come sometime tomorrow. Litllc Progress Made I The conferees battled through two stormy, unproductive sessions yesterday. House members blamed the absence of senators from the meetings for delay in drafting a compromise bill. Senator members cracked buck lluil representatives assigned to the conference "don't seem to \vant to take any action. 1 Discussions so far have centered on a pricing amendment substituted by Barkley for the proposal of Sen. Robert A. Taft, R,, .O. The Taft plan was singled out for criticism by President Truman in hia veto message on Ihe earlier OPA extension bill. The Berkley substitute- wbiild Mr low producers the increases in" prod.,_-!-__ then—but only if* the"; OPA 1 that higher prices would taid io Irt-~ creased production. House conferees reportedly favor knockitig out the "production increase' 1 clause to make the pricing' amendment acceptable to Tntt. They then would expect him. U> support ' restoration of price controls on meat, dairy products, poultry, grain and- other commodities that would Uc exempted from price ceilings under tlie present Senate bill. The Senate measure would revive OPA for one year- but wiUi itn- porUmt restrictions such as the ban against pi-ice controls on Iho food items, tobacco and petroleum products. The House voted to extend OPA unchanged until July 20. It is lip to the conferees to work out a compromise acceptable to both tho Senate and House as well as Mr. Truman.
