WASHINGTON, July (U.I 1 .)— Con K i-es.sion;il O I ' 10. 1 A t< break Uic'ir major deadlock today wlu'n Ilousu members- reject wl a Senate compromiKi to exempt foods and thcii specific: items from price con trol Inil to allow rcstoratioi oi 1 (lie ceilings it' lound net Bon. Robert A. Tatt, H.. O., sail House conferees were standing Urn on the demand that the bill re i fieeil of provisions to ban ceilings on meat, poultry, dairy product*, wheat, tobacco and petroleum. "They said they would not stand for any decontrols," Tall told newsmen alter a fruitless morning session by the Senate and House conferees. Confronted with thc adamant stand of the House, Senate conferees niTiuigcd a separate meeting at 2 p.m. to review thc entire situation. The House members agreed to join them a half hour laler to rcsumo the deliberations. The new failure to break the dc- conlrol deadlock came shortly alter administration leaders were reported confident tliat a new bill could be completed by tomorrow. The latest development, however, GUI' (luiigcrcd their hopes. If The compromise rcjcclcd by the L House group was drafted by committee ol three senalors—George ' L. Radcliffc. D.. Md.., ana Charles W. Tobey, H., N. H. It called for retention of the tie- control provisions approved by the Senate, but for addition of authority for n special board to restore ceilings if prices went wild. Re-establishment of price ceilings would be done by a decontro board already provided for In the. Senate bill. Under the present legislation, however, the board would have only authority to 'remove ceilings \vhtn supply rc_a£he% k rdfrj Radcliffe «ki«r that while "no one was committed to it," thc proposal probably will be brought up today at the 14-man conference committee "so that we can have something concrete to work with." Should the conferees rcicct the suggestion, both sides are expected to give up (heir present efforts to draft a compromise bill. They (hen would return lo the House and Senate for further instruction. That action would delay settlement of (he price problem until next week at least.
