The hot spot Is the Senate where business is lax at present. Republicans were struggling to come up with a party program in answer, to the wage-price control bombshell President Truman tossed Congress hist month. Practical politicians taw living casts ns the top Issue ol the !04« presidential campaign.

One or the other und sometimes both of these programs agreed with Mr. Truman's (n some important notably on continua- loi> of rent controls, action to curb commodity market .speculation, nore elelclive control ol exports and ^domestic credit and voluntary measures to conserve food.
