Attacks Federal Control Powers WASHINGTON, May 31 (-T) -The U.S. Chamber of Commerce urged Congress today to" wipe out the government's authority to con : trol. wages and prices and adopt in their stead an Indirect program to combat inflation. . Merman W. Slcinkraus of Bridgeport, Conn., president of the chamber's executive committee, said in n statement to the House Banking committee that price controls Can only aggravate the inflation problem by stifling production and that the present wage board is encouraging wage boosts rather than controlling them. In another statement Stcin- . kraus said "it is a cheap trick on the public" for James Carey of the CIO to accuse business of trying to bribe organized labor to end price and wage controls. Carey, the CIO's secretary- treasurer, told the Senate Banking ', committee yesterday that big bus!ness in effect has urged unions to join in the effort to scuttle wage- price controls and then "share in (lie loot." He nftmed the chamber and t h e . National Association of Manufacturers. The chamber official urged that inflation be controlled' (1) maximum production. (2) reduced government spending, (3) pay-as-wc- go takes consistent "with main- t a i n Incentives to work and. 'produce," (4) fiscal policies to neutralize the federal debt as a source uf inflation, (5)- credit, curbs, and (stimulation o'f personal savings. The House and Senate Banking committees avc considering an administration request for extending nnd tightening the defense production act, which authorizes wage- price controls. It.

There are two real purposes back of the present campaign to sell .sume 2,000 to 2,500 season tickets : for the five home Aggie' football | games. ' I One of these objects is to provide n good crowd for- each and every one of the home games. good crowd always helps to inspire the boys on the team to play their best ball and to try just a little harder to win. So it is hoped through the sale of season tickets to help fill the stadium for every home game. Second Object The second object back of the campaign is to raise some $22,000 nnd to have this money on hand prior to the opening of the football season. This sum will provide ample funds for the operation of the Athletic program at the college. The program, of course, if successful and carried out, eliminates the i gifts and dona- jj r K F - tions to the athletic department by individuals. In tho past the public has helped to make it possible by their gifts for some of the athletes to attend college.

That coi.t.r niton already has been disputed by Adm. Forrest P. Sherman, Chief of Naval operations, who disclosed Evai'.V d'a- · missal in questlonlng-ftt tho Senate's MflCArthur Investigation.
