PAGE FOURTEEN Uncle Sam Has Power to Prevent Runaway Food and Farm Prices JM.YTHKVIL.Lg (ARK,) COURJJBK NEW* By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON. July 19. (*) — The government has power Eo prevent runaway prices for many food and firm products. It does not need special price control nuthortty to place curbs on markets for such commodities us wheat, corn, cotton, dry beans and peas, butter, Jlaxseed, linseed oil, cottonseed oil, cheese, dried eggs •nd dried milk. It atted lale yesterday to sta- bl!iz« rising prices of cotton by Announcing 4,320,000 bales stored under price support programs will be kept available for market sales. Apparently anticipating the announcement, the cotton market broke sharply during the day. Power to set up what amounts to price ceilings exists In provisions of farm law relating to government authority for disposing of farm surpluses acquired under price support programs. Products at Set Prices By offering these products at set prices, the government could pretty well fix the top limit of prices, at least as long as its supplies lasted. Few if any buyers \vouM pay more . than the government selling price. In the case of non-perishable and storable commodities, the government may sell at prices equal to five per cent above the current price support rate, plus reasonable carrying charges. Uncle May Sell In tha case of perishable pro- duels—such as butter, cheese, 'dried eggs »nd milk — the government may sell at any price it sees fit, when there Is danger of these products deteriorating. Recent price increases, since the outbreak of the Korean fighting, have brought about an investigation by a Senate banking subcommittee headed by Senator Maybank (D- BC). , The Inquiry Is to start tomorrow, siaybank said, with special reference to eggs and meat, that "we are going to call in some of these people who have been putting up their prices and see why they have done it." There also have been Congressional complaints about bread price rises. TRUMAN Obntlnued from Page I whose importance cannot be overestimated," he added. , For Any Emergency ' With the whole international picture clouded, Mr. Truman made clear that. America Is beginning to mobilize once more not only for the Korean war, but also for any emergency elsewhere, He re!t*rated his assurances that America wants no territory or domination over other lands or peoples —that "we seek a world where all men may live in peace and freedom." He said it Is clear that the free nations must step up their common security program. . Allies Must Aid tike ourselves, he said, our Allies will have to turn more economic resources to defense. But in addition, he said, they will need more help from us. And, he said, "certain othel free nations" whose security Is vital to our own may require assistance. He didn't name those other nations. ' •. As soon as it can be determined .what each country will need to do. Mr. Truman said, he will lay before .Congress a request for the necessary money. . Mr. Truman said increased strength Is needed in three general categories: Men And Equipment First, to meet conditions In Korea, additional men, equipment and supplies must be sent "as rapidly as possible" to the forces of Gen. Douglas MacArthur. Second, the world situation requires a substantial Increase in the size and material support of Ameri- can armed forces, beyond Ihe Increases required In Korea. Third, is the extra help for our Allies. Of the American armed forces, their commander In chief said tlicy have fought with great valor to meet the threat to peace. While Mr. Truman held out no immediate hope that they can start .heading back up the Korean uen- insula, he said this country is mov- Jng ns fast as possible to s-?nr! in larger forces and heavier equipment and to increase its naval and air superiority over the Communist invaders. KussU Not Accused Nowhere did Mr. Truman dirc.-tly accuse Russia of fanning the tires of aggression in Korea. But he recited the record of Soviet refusal to support the U.K. or even attend meetings at which the security council stepped into the Korean crisis. Mr. Truman said the security council's united and resolute action to put down lawless aggression Is a milestone toward the establishment of a rule of law anung nations." "Only a Few" "Only a few countries," he continued, "have failed to support the common action to restore the peace. The most Important of these is the Soviet Union." Todays D< '111 ADAMS APPLIANCE CO. \ KOREA Continued from page 1 25th (Tropic Lightning) Division— also landed in Korea sometime before the first cavalry division made its beachhead. First reports created the Impression that two new beachheads had been established but later information indicated the 25th had gone in at Pusan as reinforcements, its arrival had been kept secret for security reasons. Amphibious Record The 1st cavalry Division moved into South Korea on 10 days notice, believed a record for mounting an amphibious operation. The cavalry took full equipment including artillery, engineering and signal units and plenty of supplies to Pohang, to support Independent operations, if so required. Guerrilla action hud been reported In the area earlier. The Red North Korean radio boasted last week that a division of North Koreans had landed at Pohang. General MacArthur's communi- que announcing the arrival of tie fresh divisions iri Korea" said elements of one "have already entered combat" and that the other would be "committed to action in the very near future." 25fh in Action? The 25th could have gone into action at Yechon. 52 miles Inland on the right side of a line heretofore held solely by South Korean troops. Unexplained U. S. artillery fire was reported nt Yechon earlier this week. In the Taejon area, the battered defense lines of the 24th Division "have remained unchanged since yesterday," said MacArthllr. Taejon still is in Amerlca.n hands. Infantry patrols continued to proue enemy territory before Taejon. After bucking across the Kum River and driving to the outskirts of Taejon, the North Koreans have halted. One explanation was that the river crossing cost the Reds so many men they were still groggy.
