EDSON IN WASHINGTON Davis and Food Price Control BY PKTER EDSON Courier News Washington Practically the only suggestion made thus far to correct whatever is that's wrong with the Office of Price Administration Is that the functions of control over food prices be shifted to the War Food Administration under Chester C. Davis. This suggestion comes principally from farm slate congressmen who, it may Ire assumed, don't care much what happens .to food prices as long as they go up, and who are particularly hostile to the professors in OPA and the labor and consumer groups who are obsessed with this strange — to the congressmen -idea of •wanting to keep prices down. Granting that something needs to be done about OPA's food pro- jram if there is to be effective price control, transfer of this job to War Food Administration Isn't it. At^irstElMice suc.li a transfer might s(5etn!)tO'-'tend;"lowSrtls'lsim- plification ^ and centralization of control under a single agency in the interests of greater efficiency. That would put food production, food distribution and food retail price control all under the same roof, and the same boss who would thus become a real food administrator. But the War Food Administration is giving no support whatever to such a reorganization and the Office of Price Administration planners go so far as to say unofficially that if .food price control were given to WPA, it would mean the end of food price con- Irol and the sky would be the limit on inflation. DAVIS AND PRICE CONTROL Chester C. Davis, the war food administrator, isn't a power grabber. His reputation, built up in various Washington jobs, is that of an administrator who works in whatever harness Is put on him. That may explain why he has not prompted the idea of putting food price control under his supervision-; but It also follows that if Congress or the President were to assign liim the job, lie would take it arid try to do something about It. The Davis idea on price control, as revealed in his actions during :he less than three months lie has Ken war food administrator, differ vastly from the current trend of thought at OPA. Davis hns said that he is for whatever formula was ordered to hold prices—meali- ng that he would go down the line on policies adopted by Congress or he Office of Economic Stabilization. He has, however, expressed his opposition to controls which require t lot of policing. He has been crit- cfzcd by OPA for not putting ceilings on livestock. He is doubtful about the advisability of put- ;ing celling prices on beef cattle at the farm level because of the many grades on the market and :he. fear that price ceilings would induce up-grading, which would simply be another form of inflation—lower quality for the same money. On live hogs, he was able :o bring down the price by manipulating the strage prices on corn so that it would not be held by farmers In anticipation of higher prices, but would move to market. The com price being thus reduced the price of hogs came down in ratio. Thai was price control without elaborate .policing. BLACK MAUKKT STIMULATION Davis believes that subsidies in ;omo cases are 'useful, but that any reliance on the widespread use of subsidies to stave off inflation a misconception. He reasons that ••••••••••••••M* III/ Continuous Showi Every Day Box Office Opens 1:45 Show Starts 2:00 LISTEN TO KLCN 9:W IJB. 12:45 pjn. 4:30 p.m Thursday & Friday Nights Directed by BUSBY BERKELEY Produced by ^ARTHUR TREED ROXY Bucata Wfht Every Nleht Ei«p» Saturday.
