THURSDAY, JUNE .20, 19-17. BLYTHKV1U/E (ARK.) COURIER NRWS PACK THHW? Price Controls Might Be Forced Marshall's European Plan Will Draw Heavily On U. S. Facilities My I,KB NICHOLS (IJiiilcil Vress Stuff Correspondent) /WASHINGTON, June 20. (UP) — aCO Vice President Emil Rieve said todu'^'.lial crop failures and adoi>- tton of the Marshall plan for nid to Europe iniylH force this country to return to price controls and r:n inning. Rlcvc who is president or LheCio Textile Worker* Union of Ainej-Ica told the joint Congressional f;oo- nonilc Committee Hint the coming months nmy see prlcc.s climb even higher. "If tills country goes In seriously for the Marshall plan." Hlevc said, '•Tremendous' pressure will be brought on our productive facilities and capacities. These liressures for more food, clothing and machinery will inevitably be transplanted into our price structure." Emrihasizini; that he was not opposed to aiding Etirouenn rehabilitation, Rieve sniil tlmt in granting such aid "it should be fully understood that we must take positive action to slop price increases here." If foreign demands and erop failures continue, he said, tile United 1 Slates "will inevitably have higher and higher prices." "This will require that we reestablish price control and a rationing program," the CIO officer said. Edward A. O'Neal, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, suggested yesterday that the threatened meat shortage might necessitate a return to price con- ^•pls. But 'chairman Robert A. TRft, n., O.< of the joint Economi:.' Committee commented, "not n cHLnce." "Ve can control prices somewhat by controlling exports." Talt said. Rieve said present high prices, liigh profits and reduced purchasing power "are all steps on the road to -.he collapse of our economy." "Whether the collapse comes within a period of six months or In a shorter or longer period of Lime cannot be predicted with any degree or accuracy," lie said, "but it seems to me that factors on the unfavorable side are so great ... steps must be taken immediately by this joint committee in carrying out an economic program which will p'-o- mote maximum employment, production and purchasing power." Rieve, who Is chairman of the CIO's full employment committee, proposed a 13-point program which he said '.vould meet the objectives or the Full Employment act. Among his major points were: 1. Establishment or a Federal Investigation Board, composed of representatives of Congress, the ^exe- cutivc, public-spirited citizens, , labor and agriculture, which would "shed light on the unwarranted levels" 01 many prices. "By use of pub!ioji^;>ressure and exposure of profiteering." he said, "we may b<: able to force lower prices." 2. Return of price controls nm' rationing if foreign demands increase and crop failures continue. 3. Creation of a federal monopoly investigating board to find out "the extent to which our economy is under the control of monopoly groups." Urge Self Regulation For Beer Establishments Haco Boyd, Little Rock, state director of the Arkansas Committee, United States Brewers Foundation, addressed Mississippi county beer retailers and wholesalers in meetings at -Blytl\cvllle and Osceola Wednesday afternoon. Mr. 'Boyd urged dealers to keep in line with the Arkansas Committee's program of sanitation and s elf regulation. "Dealers in a privileged business," ,Mi. Boyd s;iid. "must so conduct their establishments so they will be acceptable to the citizens or -Mississippi county." He particularly stressed the Foundation's program of cleaning up the uoei industry in Arkansas by weeding out undesirable dealers mid J^jcctionable outlets. Other speakers at the meetings were George S. Brewer, Foundation public relations director, and James M. Boliart. Little Ro:k public relations counsel.
