(UP) — A Senate banking subcommittee voted today <» raise reals 10 per cent and continue! rent controls until Doc. 31. It also recommended that rent control be taken (;iit of OPA's hands and that enforcement be left to the courts. Also all new construction, newly reconditioned rooms and all hotel rooms would be decontrolled. The subcommittee vote to raise rents 10 p =r cent above levels of last Dec. 31 was 3 to 2. Three Republicans voted (or and two Democrats against the proposed increase. Tliis does not necessarily mean however, that rents will be raised! The subcommittee, action still must be approved by the full Banking Committee, bath Houses and by President Truman. And Mr. Truman has indicated he might veto any Lull calling for a flat rent boost Other congressional developments: OPA—Philip B. Fleming, director of the OfTice of Temporary Controls, appealed to Congress not to take $9.000.000 away from the OPA He said this would mean the end of rent ceilings, sugar rationing and tne veterans housing; program The House already has voted to take the funds away from OPA Tai-ifl—President Truman appealed to congress for bi-parlisnn cooperation in foreign economic as well as political matters. He did so in a statement accompanying an executive order mollifying the reciprocal trade program to make doubly sure that American interests- will be properly safeguarded," This was designed to squelch Republican protests against tariff cutting. Labor—Two AFL vice presidents urged Congress to go slow in drafting labor reform legislation They said the legislation may create greater problems than those Congress wants to solve. The two-David Dubinsky and Matthew Woll— argued especially against bills to outlaw the closed shop and indus- trywide bargaining. Raymond S Livingstone of Thompson Products Inc, claimed that the National Labor. .Relations Board . supported Communists who attempted to organize his company through the Railroads—President A P Whitney of the Railroad Trainmen's Union asked Congress to amend the Railway Labor Act to allow closed shop contracts with the nation's railroads. Whitney's union was one of two which went out on a 48-hour -strike last May Vetcran S - T |,e House Veterans Committee approved a bill to boost wage and allowance ceilings for veterans in on-the-job trainin" Ceilings for single men would be raised from 5175 to $250 a month- for vet erans with one dependent from $200 to S325 and for veterans with more than one dependent from $200 to SooO.
