This official said he based his statement on industry earnings, after taxes, for the base earnings period 1946-1949, under which price relief is either granted or denied. It seemed certain that>when, and if, the issue is joined, the battle will spill over into Congress. Oil •state legislators . 'already have moved to obtain relief for the industry in the impending renewal of the Defense Production Act. They are proposing special exemptions — in lieu of removal of price controls—under which standards would be set up to force OPS to grant concessions it now refuses an industry official said that unless these go through, producers will have a, good case for price relief. In addition to higher labor costs, he said, other costs have gone up from 40 to 75 per cent and are retarding-exploration and development of;new fields. The TPAA, which represents 13.000 independent producers, again carried its price case to Congress this week. General counsel 1 Russelr B. Brown testified before the House Banking committee which, with its Senate counterpart, is considering the DPA extension 1 . Urown charged bluntly that the OPS was deliberately defeating the intent of Congress when it passed the present defense production law. He again pointed out that crude oil prices have been almost static since 1947 and challenged OPS to show where it got legal authority to establish the present controls. "Thus far the 'industry has not asked for relief under the Capehart Amendment which allows business to increase prices to cover Korean war cost hikes.

Barclay On Brid_ge_ A Central Press Feature SHORTER SUIT BETTER IF THE opponents have bid strongly in the two minors and wind up in a No Trump contract, you naturally expect . to attack the contract in the majors. Which major suit will you open? Your longer or your shorter suit? If your hand has a bit of high card strength, which may furnish reentry to it in case you get something established in it, then your longer suit is usually the ^better lead. But, if your hand is weak, so that the defense will probably devolve mainly upon your partner, then the shorter major promises better results, since it is more likely to be your partner's suit.

But' he made a most unfortunate. as \veli as unsound, choice when he picked the longer spades Jn preference to the shorter hearts. His 6 %vas covered by the J, Q and A. South saw at once that he required a number of club tricks to make the contract, so he then sent the club Q through to the K. It made -no difference what East returned. South had more trick-takers than he required. The sound lead for West here would have been a heart, since the defeat of the contract depended entirely on his partner's hand and not on his own. His side was sure to hold at least eight cards in each major, with the opponents not bidding: either. So there was an appreciably greater chance of East having something in hearts than in spades, since East was marked for more cards in that suit. If West had done that kind of straightaway thinking and had led his heart 9, East would have established a heart trick at the very outset, and would have stood ready to cash it as soon as he scored with the club K. • * * Tomorrow's Problem f J7 I 105 4-10053 N W E S 4Q109 V 9S4 >QJ8 4.2 812 • A76 * A Q J 6 5 .
