House Quits Wage, Price Curb Bill to Consider New One WASHINGTON, Aug. 4. (/!>>—The House tcriay junker! Us mandatory wage and price curb bil] mid started over cm the job of writing an economic control measure, The mandatory wage-price bill—•§• — providing for ceilings to go on au- tomaticaUy if living cost-s rise 5 per cent above the level of June 15— was denounced yesterday by President Truman. He called it an invitation- for a five per cent rise. The House threw it out on a -standing vote of 112 to 161 on which the members were not recorded by name. The idea had been tentatively approved vestcrday by 159 to 128.

The junking of the mandatory bill climaxed four days of Honse maneuvering in this order: The banking committee .sent to the House floor a hill providing only the limited controls Mr. Truman had asked — not including wage- price powers. Congress Seeks Cntitrnl With Congress clamoring for some sort of wage-price controls. Democratic leaders offered a substitute providing power for Mr. Truman to slap ceilings on prices and wages, and ration goods, when and if he thinks those steps arc needed. By adoption of amendments, the House proceeded to rewrite the substitute. It voted for mandatory price-wage controls, limited all control powers to eight months, added a "buy American" clause, and forbade controls on commodity market s|>cculation. The. result was something completely unacceptable to the Truman administration. So today's vote tossed out the amended substitute and left the House back where it started—with the banking committee's bill. The House began then to deal with proposed changes in the committee bill.
