FRIDAT, OCTOBER 27, 1950 Th» Hation Today: Th* Talk of N«w Rent Controlt— Salons Now Favor Rent Controls As Situation Reflects Change By JAMKS MAKI.OW all that mpiiiiR n.,.,„,! .....,, ....*'.... KLYTHEVILLE (ARK.1 COURIER NEWS By JAMKS MAKI.OW WASHINGTON, oci. 27.- «•>—A ntw rent control law? There's teen continuing talk or It, and Hie Idea Kol i shot In (He arm this week. President Truman said yesterday he may call Congress back—before Bits due back Nov. 27—to consider 1 rent controls, among other things. Earlier this month Senator Brictt- cr, Ohio Republican, said congress may have to extend the rent law when il returns in November. In the -past Bricker luul been one of the chief foes of such controls. He had (ought against them Ihc last two times Congress extended them. And as far back as September Hep. Silence—Kentucky Democrat find chairman of the House Dank- Ing Committee — said his group would start hearings on a new rent lav: as soon as Congress returns In November. I^st April Mr. Truman asked Congress to keep the controls until June 30, .1951, nnyway. Congress Changes Mind Late in June Congress thought otherwise and decided to wipe out the controls—or most of them— sooner than Mr. Truman wanted. It passed a rent law which went Into effect July 1 and said this-. 1. All government rent controls would end Dec. 31, 1950 unless— 2. The people of a city or town, by referendum or vote of their governing body, like city council, voted to keep them until June 30. 1951. For the most of the country, unless Congress in the meantime votes to keep them longer, controls will enrt Dec. 31. 1950. But since Congress voted In June Korean fighting started. So dirt all that means. Industries are booming, workers are needed, and In the meantime the government cracked down on new home building by making it harder to buy. Situation Is Different So the situation now is not exactly the same as it was In June. Brlcker, for instance, said tills Oct. 6'. New building had'almost caught up with housing needs (In June) but the government crackdown on new building since the defense program started rolling may leave a shortage that will require rent ceilings. Government rent controls, which started early in the war, have con- tinued until now without a break although with some changes. In 1916 there were 1G.OOO.COO units under rent control, the peak tttiin- ber. At tills moment there are only about one-half that number—or 8,000.000 units—still under control. Since July 1, when the present laiv went Into effect, about 184 communities--with a total of about 1,150,000 dwelling units—have voted to continue federal controls for six months. Since Congress may have other jobs In its lap, when it returns in November, it will have to work fast if it's going to continue the federal controls which otherwise end Dec. Cheap Drug Acts Like Hormone; To Hit Arthritis, Rheumatics, Cancer By ALTON I,. HI.AKKSLEE Associated Press Science Reporter BOSTON. Oct. 27. W—Discovery of an inexpensive drug that seems to act like the wonder hormone ACTH was announced today to the American college of surgeons. The Jrug. an old one named fui'.icin, may become a plentiful now medicine against arthritis, rheumatic fever and perhaps some kimls of cancer. Tests on humans nre just starting. Furacin is derived from furfural, a by-product In milling flour and soybeans. The new discovery is that fur- acin apparently prods the adrenal glands to produce cortisone. This prodding is what ACTH does. ACTH (adrenocoi-tlcotrom'c hormone) comes from the pituitary acts on the adrenal glands, which lie over the kidneys. Doth ACTH and cortisone bring dramatic relief from rheumatoid arthritis, knock out rlieimmtic fever, and have iemjjoranly helped against some kinds of cancer. The hormone-like action of fur- acin was reported by Dr. Charles E. Friemlgood and Dr. Charles B. Ripslein of Maimonides Hospital and the State Ui Center, New .York. They gave it lo mice with Sarcoma, a cancer of connective tissue. Mice ordinnrly die of this cancer in 21 days, when they got /uracin they lived nearly twice as long. When given cortisone, they Hvcc about 4f> days. Then cancer gre\v slower, and some cancer cells died. the State University Medical Margaret Truman Puts TV Likes Ahead of Dating NEW YORK, Oct. 27.
