Objections Fail WASHINGTON, Jan. 22 (AP)-With little debate, the House passed and sent to the Senate today a $2-096,048,875 appropriation to finance operations of 43 independent agencies of the government during the 12 months beginning next July 1. Almost half of the total was for continued expansion of the Merchant Marine. The so-called independent agencies are those, such as the Interstate Commerce Commission, which are not under any government department. Of the appropriation, $136,100,000 was earmarked for the Tennessee Valley Authority to expedite construction of its war power program. Republicans complained during the debate that reductions In non-defense activities were insufficient, and made four attempts to cut in dividual items. However, they sue ceeded only in making a $90,000 cut in a proposed $900,000 appropriation for the Tariff Commission. The big bill, the first regular supply bill for the 1943 fiscal year, carried $984,410,800 for construction and operation of the merchant fleet. Chairman Emory S. Land of the Maritime Commission said 1422 new ships would be completed during the fiscal year. Publication of testimony given by Land at closed committee hearings disclosed that he said the shipbuilding program .of Allied nations had reached the point where it was forging ahead of losses by Axis submarines. The Axis Powers, on the other hand, "are not having much luck at replacement of their sunken ships, he decwred. Income payments to individuals totaled $80,473,000,000 in the first 11 months of 1941, according to the Department of Commerce.

In disregard of President Roose velt's expressed wishes, the joint committee agreed, too, that no price ceiling should be placed on a farm commodity without prior approval by the Secretary of Agriculture. With the agreement, leaders made plans to speed to the White House this rewritten version of the legislation that the President asked more than six months ago be enacted speedily as a check against inflation. The House, Representative Steagall, Dem, of Alabama, said, will be requested to approve the compromise tomorrow and, if this is given, the measure will be sent immediately to the Senate. In general, the bill provides for appointment of a price administrator empowered to place a ceiling over the price of any commodity, and over rents in defense districts. No controls over wages are authorized. Restrictions of Farm Products There are several restrictions, however, as to when prices may be placed on farm commodities. Senator Brown. Dem., of Michigan, esti mated that these would bar any ceil ings until average prices of agricul tural products have gone up 11 to 15 percent above present levels. Nevertheless, he told reporters, "I think we have a good workable bill." The farm provision knocked out of the compromise version was an amendment offered by Senator O'Mahoney, Dem., of Wyoming, and adopted by the Senate. It directed that the Federal Reserve Board's index of industrial wages should be a factor in calculation of farm parity prices. The effect of this, Brown contended, was to permit an increase of 25 percent in farm prices. Compromise Provisions The conference committee had la bored seven days to iron out differences between price control bills previously massed by benate ana House. Brown and Steagall said the compromise contained these provisions: A licensing system lor Dusmess affected by price maximums. Businesses violating the maximums would risk losing their licenses to do business. A single price administrator, whose orders could be appealed to the courts. A clause empowering the Price Administrator to buy and sell com modities m orders to affect prices. This power could be used only to increase production. A provision declaring that farm price ceumgs must not be nxed lower than the highest of the fol lowing levels: Average farm prices on Oct. l, 1941, or Dec. 15, mi; average farm prices for 1919-29; or 110 percent of parity price levels. (Parity is a price which would give farm products the same purchasing power they had in the 1909-14 period.) A provision, sponsored by Senator Bankhead, Dem.; of Alabama, re quiring prior approval by the Secretary of Agriculture of any farm price orders by the administrator. A prohibition against price ceilings on con: 'odities, largely dairy products, now handled under the Federal Marketing Agreements act administered by the Secretary of Agriculture. tion, with possible penalties of $5000 and two years in prison. Another section expected to aid enforcement would allow any rt son charged more than maximum prices or rents to sue for treble dam ages or $50, whichever was larcer Licensing would apply to all per' sons and businesses dealing in com modifies affected by price-Axing or ders. These licenses would be grant ed to all applying and could b sus pended or revoked only by B court action after the administrator had warned about a first violation. Although wages, salaries and In-comes were specifically exempted from the measure, it contained a sec. tion asking all Federal agendo dealing with labor to work for lability of prices. Three N. E. Men on Ship Sunk in Crash Continued from the First Page New York, Galveston and Charleston, was commanded by Capt. C. L. Stone, a native of Maine. The Brazos was built 43 years ago at Newport News, Va. The Navy said the collision occurred loll miles southeast of Cape Hat-teras in an area known to be traversed by enemy submarines. The Navy said 23 survivors had already reached New York via rail and nine would reach here tomorrow. 11-15 Percent living-Cost Rise j The conferees eliminated a Senate provision that would have required Senate confirmation of all state and regional directors under the price administrator and all persons earning $4000 or more annually. Senator Brown estimated that living costs might advance from 11 to 15 percent under the compromise farm-price restrictions before price ceilings could be applied. Previously he had warned the Senate that the provisions it passed might allow an increase of as much as 25 percent. Senator Bankhead said govern ment economists had forecast a rise of about 5 percent in the price of farm products during the next year, but Senators Brown and- Taft, Reps., of Ohio, said they expected a greater increase. All six of the Senate conferees signed the compromise. They are Senators Brown, Dem., of Michi gan; Bankhead, Dem., of Alabama; Taft, Rep., of Ohio; Barkley, Dem., of Kentucky; Danaher, Rep., of Connecticut, and Glass, Dem., of Virginia. Three of the five House conferees also signed: Representa tives Steagall, Dem., of Alabama; Williams, Dem., of Missouri, and Spence, Dem., of Kentucky. Representative Wolcott, Rep., of Michigan, refused to sign the agreement and Representative Gifford, Rep., of Massachusetts, left before it was ready for signatures. Maximum Rentals Fixed The conferees previously had agreed to fixing maximum rentals in defense housing areas; to increasing the annual salary of the price administrator, expected to be Leon Henderson, now acting, from $10,000 to $12,000 a year; and to exempting newspapers, motion pictures, radio, common carriers, utilities and insurance from price-fixing powers. In general, prices during the period Oct 1 to 15 last, are advanced as a standard for price-fixing. Exceptions are farm prices and rent ceilings in defense areas. The latter would be based on rentals on or about April 1 last. The price administrator would be authorized to step in and fix price ceilings whenever prices rose or threatened to rise above these standards. Protests on these orders could be filed within 60 days with appeals possible to special Federal courts. The price administrator could ask injunctions against violators of his orders or could bring criminal ac- Two Men Injured Two men were injured, the Navv said. They were not immediately identified. (The Navy listed the crew at 34. but the company said it totaled 35.) The Navy's statement said: "On Jan. 13, 1942, the Atlantic Culf and West Indies Lines. Inc., steamer Brazos, leased to the New York-Puerto Rico S. S. Company (Clyde Mallory Lines, managers) was in collision with an unidentified ship 150 miles to the southeastward of Cape Hatteras. "The Brazos sank as a result of the collision. All officers and men were rescued. Two suffered injuries. "Twenty-three survivors arrived in New York city today by rail. Nine others will arrive tomorrow." CHARLESTON, S. C, Jan. 22 (AP) Francesco Pabon, 23-year-old Puerto Rican, told reporters from his hospital bed tonight that he was "hit on the head with something immediately after the freighter Brazos was in collision with another ship off the southern- United States coast on Jan. 13. I was on watch at the time and after we had been struck, I saw the lookout in the bow running back toward the bridge to flash the lights. Then something hit me in the back of the head. After that I remember nothing until I woke up in the bed on the other ship." Pabon does not speak English and reporters were compelled to struggle with a smattering of Spanish; but another seaman off of another ship, 21-year-old Harry Dabineaux, native of France, came to their rescue and interpreted. ' Of course I know nothing 01 what happened after I was hit on the head with some object but I later learned that none of the men on the Brazos went overboard. The ship with which we had collision came hard by and we were taken off." He said the Brazos, a 4497-ton vessel, was struck on the port side astern and sank soon after the survivors had been transferred. Brockton, Mansfield Men in Brazos Crew Quincy D. Slocum, a member of the Brazos crew, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. George W. Slocum Jr. of 37 Cottage Et, Brockton. He is 25 years old and has been In the Merchant Marine Service about four years, according to his father. Mr. and Mrs. John Madelros 01 726 North Main st., Mansfield, un aware of the collision in which their 33-year-old son, Manuel, was involved, received a telegram from him yesterday afternoon in which he said: "Arrive New York today. Feeling fine. Will write soon." The . Madeiros, until two years ago, were residents of New Bedford. Manuel has been at sea 14 years, the last three of -which he was in the Merchant Marine Service. Three weeks ago he visited his parents following a trip from Brazil. He has four sisters and brother.
