ThaM Are Thinklw Job* These will be the home front heroes in probably the most thankless Jobs in th« country. They will be the Chester Bowles, the Leon Henderson and the William H. Davis of the new defens« elfoil, and on their headc will be heaped ill the abase and hatred those official* got In Ihe last war. The new defense production act says pricej can't be frown In any Industry unless wage* in that Industry are frozen too. That' puts a new twist to the buslnet. Walt till the first test cases arise. In spile of rising living costs, the Truman administration U not yet ready to move all-out on the antl- Inflationary front, congress authorized no expenditure* for subsidies, and prices can't be rolled back without subsidies. Hent controls expire Dec. 31, and the cost of living line can't be held without rent controls. These may be two main items of business when Congress returns after Thanskgiving. Also, there Is no machinery to Issue the regulations and enforce price controls. Even if the staff were now assembled, it would take time to get out the orders. In the last war, it took from Dec. 7, 1M1. to March 15. IM2, to get out the first price Ireeze order. And In the next four years there were over 80,000 federal court cases over OPA orders. This time, there seems to be an idea that many of the troubles ot Inflation can be soaked up merely by raising taxes and curbing credit. Here we go again. Buford Martin, «t »l, ft.
