Special Powers Congress is Urged To Keep Controls on Sugar Another Year »Y MKKK1MAN SMITH " United Press While House Reporter WASHINGTON, Feb. 3.—President Truman today asked Congress to continue his sugar rationing au- Ihorlly and some other war (lowers for n not her year. He requested extension of hi powers to allocate scarce food and materials, and lo control the export aiur import of certain critical items. Sugar is the only thing on which individual consumers are rationed directly. Mr. 'minimi a lso asked authority for the Maritime Commission (o continue operation of certain dripping lines until the commission can settle with these companies whose vessels were taken over during the war.

The request was miide in the House Friday but ran into a roadblock set up by Rep. llcartsill of Sebastian County and rtep. Carlton Cnrric of Jefferson County. Ragon told the solons he had made an investigation and found the appropriation unnecessary. Currie charged that it was a .subterfuge to get higher salaries, and then he suggested an investigation of the Highway Department. Today the House planned to put Highway Director J. C. Baker and State Comptroller John Trucmper 011 the stand and ask them just why the department needs the money so urgently. The Highway Commission Saturday threatened to hold up bids on 14 construction and maintenance road jobs if the appropriation was hot apprcved.

Battle lines were forming for a fight-to-the-Iinish on at least one of Gov. Ben Laney's majar legislative proposals.

The opposition comes from the Arkansas Education Association which says that the revised act would not do enough for the teachers. The AEA has set up its own bill. At a meeting Saturday Laney defended his bill by ticking off six reasons why he thinks it is superior to the educators' bill. Mrs. J. T.
