Crawford, R., Mich., who led the fight against price Yoiuvois in Congress last year, termed Ihe antl-trusl Inves- ilgntion "fanlnslic." Declaring that foreign K'ndini! threatened n depression here, he said; "Mr. Clark seems determined to help bring about that depression! by investigating our people instead of Ihe fiscal |>o]ic-ies of the gov- . eriMucnt." ' ' OIO Vice President Einil Blcve liidicsilcd labor doesn't place too much hope in the program. While welcoming the campaign, he said much price scltiiiB docs not fall under the criminal law." Ilul Ihc ciO's solution—thai the government restore price controls and rationing—came in for equally vehement denunciation by others. Goss attacked 11. saying "Those wiio are demanding thnl food prices be rolled back to. June, IB-10. would be the first lo oppose a similar roll-back of wages." Agricultural Commissioners Tom Under of Georgia and J. E. McDonald of Texas, bucked him uj: by charging Ihal high prices art duo. lo wage increases, the Ncv. Deal ami "bungling by Ihe CIO- i>AC dominated OPA." They also condemn Klcvc's con- teiilion that further wage demands are inevitable if price controls are not pul back on scarce goods. Further wage Increases now would only rc.sull In still higher prices, Ihey .said.
