Snowstorm Takes Lives Of Eight High Wind And Snow Causes Traffic Snarl At Milwaukee By United 1'ress Eight persons were dead today in southern Wisconsin's heaviest snowstorm of the season. The storm struck Wisconsin late yesterday after moving on high winds through the Mississippi valley and Great Lakes regions.

KI.KIN ' t/Bilrd Prrss Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Mar. 0 (U.I'.)—National Grange Master Albert S. Goss said today that we .should return to a limited rationing; program if necessary to assure a fair distribution of scarce goods. The spokesman for the powerful farmer's group also told the House Banking Committee that price controls should be extended but that food subsidies should be dropped'at once to prevent "truly, disastrous" inflation. Instead, he .said, Congress should adopt a five-point program designed to restrict'QPA's powers and take other anti-inflation steps such as boosting income taxes. The rationing setup would be a part of this program. Madison.

B Terral. of Ruston, La., and Chester Terral, of Helena, Ark. .Goss said OPA should invoke rationing In order to assure a fair distribution "when the supply ol any commodity is unequal to the demand and ii appears that such shortage may continue for 90 days or more." On the other hand, he said, price controls should bo dropped as soon as supply equals demand and th,crc is "reasonable prospect" that the situation will continue. "As far as foodstuffs are 'concerned," Goss said, "this decision should be made by the Secretary of Agriculture who is In'(he best.- position to know the facts." Under this proposal, the Secretary of Agriculture would be compelled to review the farm price picture every 30 days; ' : Ooss said lie ngreert «llh ' OPA that ^' J we,-stand In more serious danger of Inflation today tHafi^VaV! any time in the present crisis." I . "In fact we arc well on our roncl to such an outcome," he said, ."and We need a governmental organization with sufficient power to deal with the situation." He added, however, that OPA's present policies would promote Inflation and retard recovery. "We need certain 'controls against inflation more thnn ever. But these controls must be sound. Otherwise they mny do more harm than yoocl, 1 ' he said. Gos.s said if the choice lay between a continuation of preesenl OPA policies mid no price controls at all. he would choose no controls at all. He said there were other nflation problems which were outside OPA/j province. r-aid blunlly that the only cause for inflation was loo much money and too few goods. For hat reason. h e said, congress must close the tap on the circulation of idditional money a little by rais- 'iig income taxes.
