WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, T947 BLYTHEVTLL1! (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Meat to Be First If Controls Set Up Predictions Bated On Agri Department Warning of Shortage BY AUSTIN C. WEHRWEIN (United Press Stiff Correspondtpt) WASl/TNGTON, Nov. 19. (UP) — Meal probably would be the first item brought under control If Con- ^fcress approves President 'J'ruman'j Xvfcqucst for price-rationing authority, according to some government experts . Present prospects are that the authority will not be granted. Government officials said they were convinced that the powers, il used at all, would be used chiefly on a few essential food items. They regarded meat as a good bet iti vie\\ of Agriculture Department warnings that supplies will foe scarcer by next Spring. Future price treiids, It was said would determine whether such things as wheat and butter woulc be controlled. All available evidence Indicated that the administration had nc Intention of clamping controls or Filch commodities as clothing anc industrial soorts. Mr. Truman's request lor "stand by" price fixing and rationing pow ers caught the government withon even a skeleton of the vast mach inery that administered control during the war. All that was let were records lhal may prove vnlu able In avoiding some of the head aches that befell the OPA. One Office Left ^Ifcwiiile there are some ex-OPA ex flerts scattered throughout the government, all that remains of the organization whose staff totaled 56.- OOa-at the peak is a liquidating office. And oi all the OPA controls once in existence, rent control alone remains—and that is now under the Housing Expediter. President Trmmin himself estimated that it would take "several mouths" to set up even the limited type of rationing authority he requested in his< r ;e to Congress. Ration books would lirst have to be printed and distributed. Mr. Truman's request, while gel- ting a chilly reception id Congress, drew applause from two former OPA chiefs, Paul A. Porter and Chester Bowles. "It's either the President's program or more inflation," Porter said. Bowles said the program would not require a new agency like OPA. He said it could be effectively handled by the Interior, Commerce and Agriculture Departments and thut controls on 20 to 30 scarce items could be established within 30 days.
