Congress Expected to Be Cautious Before Giving President Authority - Dec- 19 - --' n-uman's request for additional wartime powers was greeted In some quarters today as a sign that the machinery is in motion for •H-oiu mobilization. The President asked Congress yesterday to approve legislation that would let him juggle government bureaus and set up emergency agencies, as well as permit renegotiation of defense contracts. Senator Magnuson (D-Wash), a member of the Armed Services Committee, told reporters he thinks this Is only a step toward the full mobilisation of resources he said is necessary to flglu off Coinnum- However, Chairman McCarran <D-Nov» predicted the Senate judiciary Committee will move cautiously in giving Hie President M- Ihority lo reorganize agencies.

The government continued to move gradually with the broad legislation it already has. .Meat rroduri'rs Called [11 *JJ'he Economic Stabilisation Agcn- ^i 1 ' called in meat industry representatives yesterday but It said in a statement the session was "not to be taken as an indication of any imminent (price) controls on meats." The agency said Price Administrator Michael v. DiSalle held only exploratory talks with officials of five packing firms, none of them the giants of the industry. ESA said they explored problem; which "would be probable if controls are foun.d to be necessary in the future." While Magnuson and other members of Congress saw in Mi- Truman's bid for new legislation a sign that the all-out mobilization many of them have been demanding is on the way. there were indications the request would be carefully screened. Senator Brcwster (R-Mci, for example, said Republicans will want lo be certain the president, isn't given such blanket reorganlzatioi authority that lie could create a new welfare department. The President proposed such a move in a previous reorganization plan veioec by Congress.

In this connection. Mr. Truman pointed out that Charles B. Wilson the new mobilization chief 'nav. Is studying the present setup "in relation to the expanding job which lies ahead." Mr. Truman said he wants broader contract renegotiation powers than those given him by his declaration of a national emergency. He said there is "considerable doubt as (o whether aulhorily now exists Jor modifying contracts after they have been entered Into." Observing that mollification authority is needed, the president said: "For example, some government suppliers now face possible bankruptcy because fixed prices in their government contracts are entirely Inadequate to meet rising costs. In certain cases, contract price adjustments are essential lo keep these firms in production." Philippines Put Ban On Shipments to China -MANILA. Dec. 19.
