TWKLVE (ARK.) COUK1KK NEWS Rising Food Prices Bring Threat Of Check on War Profiteering By EIHV1N B. HAAK1XSON WASHINGTON, July 17, </P)-~ Reports of food price increases Jn some areas brought a warning today from Senator Gillette (D - lown) ttiat, "ailempfs to profit from the war scare may bring controls." Gillette is chairman of n Senate agriculture subcommittee liial has been investigating the spread between prices paid by consumers ami those received by producers of food products. "Widespread increases in brend mid bakery prices may force our subcommittee to reopen hearings in ihi& field," Gilleltee told a reporter. Previous Testimony Gillette .said previous testimony showed that the baking industry boosted retail prices quickly when their ingredients increased in price in the post-war decontrol period. However, he said: "The Industry was a good deal less zealous in reducing prices when costs declined on grains, fats and other products." Commenting an ihe current price situation, Gillette said that "some of the price increases in foods may be hie result of a trend toward war scare buying. Holders of such commodities are tempted to collect a little extra profit." Controls Threat He added that- such action not only is likely to bring controls, but should bring them. rn a somewhat similar vein, two House members urged a Congressional investigation of recent price rises throughout the country. Rep. Klein (D-NY) said bakers and dairies have been "soaking the Consumer without conscience." lie * ' '(' \ DON'T DO IT—Lcashinfi a dog to the steering wheel is a common and cruel error by inexperienced drivers.

He referred particularly to a one-crnt boost in the cost of a loaf of bread announced by two local bakers, to become effective today. That, said Flood, is "an obvious attempt at war scare profiteering." Gillette, commenting that "food costs have n terrific impact on tiie nation's economy," declared; "If there are unjust profits or unreasonable spread then there should be controls." However, Senator George (D-Ga' told reporters he thinks any effort to get wartime controls now would be a "very serious error."

"Sliudiler to Tlilnk" "I shudder to think of dropping It on those deluded nradmen in Korea." he said in a radio broadcast. "Dut If it is, in Gen. MacArthur's judgement, expedient to save American boys from being murdered In cold blood with their hands tied behind their backs, I think he should be given that authority.
