He is a member of the Joint economic committee whld( may play an Important part In framing the program. O'Mahoney told reporters he still was studying the price problem but that he believed steps should be taken along these lines: I !. An "excess profits lax" differing from the 85.5 per cent war- lime levy, which would encourage price cuts without hampering production.
