(UP1 — OPA today shoved the bulk of the nation's economy back under price control, restoring most prices aii'.l rents lo June 30 levels. President Truman warned, however, It would be n lough job to keep them there—or anywhcvc near it. He reluctantly signed the weakened OPA extension bill, und warned Congress he would call a special session to amend it If it [alien tu stem an inflationary spiral. Price Administrator Paul A. Porter .said, "we think it will work." For thousands of Items—Including scores of market basket essentials—the roll-back to June 30 ceilings was only temporary. OPA said higher prices required by the bill's amendments would be pouring out within 20 days. Other increases, to assure industry its 19-10 profits, will come later. Industry must apply for Ihes2, and prove they are justified. The roll-back was not universal. Not until Aug. 20 will consumers know whether ceilings go ba?k on such items as meat and milk and their products, on poultry, eggs, petroleum products, tobacco am: grain. With these exceptions, a 25-day experiment in free economy wa. L : brought to a sudden end. What look place in that period, the President told Congress, gave the country a "frightening foretaste" of what would happen without OPA. Confusion Predicted OPA officials, working frantically to jam the new bill into operation, foresaw widespread confusion as an inevitable immediate resii'.*,. Not even they knew yet the full implication of the extension bill'.-, e.me»d- mcnts. Ready for immediate issue wore approximately 200 price adjustments covering hundreds of products. These were temporary, however, based on the old OPA law and merely saved up during the agency's lapse. Certain to come quickly, and In an ever increasing ii.wd, w^rp. -i,* 1 - dcrs removing controls entirely from thousands of less essential il°n:s. By Dec. 31, nothing can remain under ceilings except products held essential to the cost of livii to the cost of operating a business. By April I, OPA must be out of the business of subsidizing food. Whether <l»iry products and meat arc subsidized agan depends on a de-control board to be named by the. President. Business 'lueii who bought, on the uncontrolled 'imarket in the las', 25 days were likely to be caugh', in a squeeze. OPA' said they must- sett at ceiling prices, regardless o! costs. And even where increases are required under the new act. retailers must continue to sell at June WASHINGTON, July M. (UP) — The House and yenate divided today over the size of proposed pay increases for Congressmen. i Should a Congressman's present $10.000-pcr-ycar salr.ry be raised to $15.000 or lo $12,500 plus a $2,500 lax-free expense allowance'- That. Is the question that will have to be settled by conference between the wo houses. The alternate pay schemes I'.ro in a congressional streamlining bill. Thc House passed the bill late last night after knocking out a Senate provision to increase congressional pay scales lo $15,000. In Us place was inserted an amendment by Rep. clarence J. Brown, R., O., providing for th c $12,51X1 plus $2,500 expenses. Shawnee School Adds to Faculty Extra Curricula Activities Undergo Many Revisions 30 levels until OPA actually thori7.es the increases. President Not Satisfied Schools in smaller towns of Mississippi County are making Improvements which already are re- ilectcd in the type of work done. With a number ot new teacher.; secured, following end of the war these programs include expansion of work and development of such extra curricula activities as sports and music. 'At Joiner, thc Shawnee consolidated school there, is expanding Ibis year with a new superintendent, an athletic program which includes 11- man football and a music department. This school, a member of the North Central Association, had l.'iO students in high school last yeai, with an increase expected tills year when school opens Sept. 2 for a nine months term. There are 20 white teachers and from elicit to nine Negro teachers in thc Shawnee District. H. L.

Thc President, signing thc extension late yesterday, said it fell far short of his hopes. "I am advised, however, that it is the best bill the Congress will now pas.s," he said. "H is clear, moreover, that it is a better bill then thc one I was forced to veto on June 29. "If the bill had become law, inflation would have been inevitable. While the present measure by no means guarantees that inflation can be avoided, it oilers a sufficient prospect of success to warrant tile making of a wholehearted effort to keep our economy on an even keel until a Hood of goods makes further controls unnecessary." Tiic President said defects in the bill, and months of delay in. tu passage, call for other stern measures to check inflation. Federal expenditures must be reduced, he said, and if ttiat is not enough, a "more- rigorous" tax policy inust be con- side red. More extensive use of powers to allocate scarce materials may be required, he said. "If it appears that all the effort-'; of the government and the people will not l>c enough under thc present legislation, I shall have no alternative but to call the Congrcv, back in special session to strengthen the price control laws and lo cnaci such fiscal and monetary legislation as we need to save us from the threat of economic disaster," he said. Some prices had jumped sharply during the 25-day free period since OPA dteri on June 30. Livestock and commodity index price;: soared to 26-year record highs. The catti-' and hog market became glutted as farmers turned their storj; Into cash. On most olher foodstuffs and r.n most manufacturer! goods, however, retail prices held near OPA leveK But increases at producer and wholesale levels foretold certain in- i *V vi j . creases for consumers. l nlmcrt at Yangchow and Uiho, War Profits Probers to Check Income Tax Records of Key Figures in Munitions Scandal This photograph of thc world's first underwater atom bomb explosion was taken from thc sky bridge of the Crossroads Flagship lh c u.

What eifect the new OPA extension bill would have on livestock prices was not known immediately. The new law, signed after tho markets closed yesterday, provide. 1 -: for restoration of price controls on livestock, meat, dairy and poul- Iry products only if a thrcc-nuul control board decides that such action is necessary to prevent inlla- lion. Thc revived OI'A lost no lime in restoring rent controls which were in effect when the agency died June 30. Deputy Administrator Ivan D. Carson warned landlords that, (hey would be violating the law it I they continued to collect above- ceihng rents. He said leases signed [during tile interim period were void unless they complied wilh OI'A rules. Rent control acts passed by S-^PJ; cities nnj states during the interim were superseded by the new C/PA act, Carson said, fie said mil increases granted through state and local action no longer would apply The new OPA act got only a lukewarm reception from some administration officials. Thc Department of Agriculture said that unless price conlrcl.s .ire restored en food, meat prices '.nay climb to 35 per cent above the old CPA ceilings by winter. Fear .llbck Markets Nor were opponents of the OPA enthusiastic about thc measure. Tlie American Meat Institute, spokesman'for the major packers, said the new bill "threalcns lo renew chaos In the meal industry Just as consumers arc beginning to enjoy more meat." "Among other tilings, the lav. provides that the price coni.ro board shall determine by Aug .'21 whether regulation of certain commodities, including meat. Is enforceable and in the public Interest," the institute said. "However, the past has shown with clarity painful to everybody except black market chisclers that the regulation of meat in peacetime is entirely unworkable and impracticable and not in thc interest of the consumer of meat or th e future production of food animals." The first reaction from labor came in a statement by Walter P. Reuther, president of Ihe big CIO Unllcd Auto Workers Union, pledging a continuation of tiv; Mar. union's buyers strike. ' I.May Charging that the new bill "only | July Pretends to restore price control." |Oct. Reuther claimed Ihat OPA already Dec.
