Honest Elections Put in Jeopardy Craighcad Poll Tux Situation Criticized By Party Committee JONESBORO. Ark.. July 25. (UP) —Craighead County's investigators of poll tax receipts by a sub-committee of members of the Democratic County Committee today heir to the theory that bootleggers am gamblers have been responsible foi causing upwards of 3.000 receipts to be issued to persons who wen not sufficiently interested in quail fying ns electors lo obtain Ihci. own receipts. In a formal report, the invesil?a tors said that one gambler hni boasted of purchasing a block o 500 receipts, while another clauiici to have obtained 300 or more.

He would not be the free choice of the people but v.'o-.iKi be the choice of some clique or boss. "The Democratic Central Committee here has suddenly discovered that within the last few years a system has been building up secretly whereby persons interested would put up money nnd would lood the voters with blank aulhor- i-/,ation, ready to be dated and signed, and the agent would procure the receipts.

He said, however, that If Mr. Truman signs the bill, he appointment of the decontiol Uunrd provided In the OPA revival measure would be announced iromptly. As soon as t)i* bill Is slffned, OPA will rcs(ure ceilings on ( many Items, although most ' major foods will remain without rt'lllnts fur the time being at least. . ' Tlic measure would, restore rent celling and give a S|Kcl«l three- iiiiin board sweeping |>ower.i over prices on many commodities. Mr. Truman may nominate the hoard members lodiiy.

They had no re|X)rt to make afterwards, but every Indication pointed to Mr. Truman's accepting the compromise bill. He vetoed an earlier measure lo extend a watered-down OE'A beyond June 30, when tho old OPA expired. Legislators' Last Effort Congressional leaders have warned him that if he vetoed this bill, ' he would not get another. The new measure, however, comes closer to Mr. Truman's pricing idea than did tlie bill he rejected. Meats, dniry products and grain are among foods which automatically would be placed under, price control on Aug. 21 unless the control board rules otherwise. Poultry rind cg?s would remain exempted from price cellfngs until the board restores controls. A major question which remains unanswered is whether tho OPA will bo able to roll back prices to the level of June 30. I Some senators said the OPA •will not be able to return prices I o June 30 levels but will have to allow present prices—although higher lhan old OPA ceilings—lo continue. These senators also said • businessmen who have purchased I at high prices in the no-OPA period must be allowed to recover their costs. Among possible appointees to Ihe control board are former Economic Stabilizer Chester Bowles, former Price Administrator Leon Henderson, former- Deputy Price Administrator James P.
