ii^*i**««»»«^«^^ JT INge Six 'HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Tuesday, November 12,1946 Wild Prices Not Seen by Industrialists 6y United Press Spokesmen for the nation's principal industries said today that some price increases would follow Jhe government's removal of almost all price controls, but they «ald that prices would not "run hog Wild." Instead, they said that some ptlces might rise sharply but would level off, much as the price if meat has done since ceilings were lifted. Some industry leaders .pledged to hold price increases to 3 minimum. A-poll of housewives in 10 major cities, meanwhile, showed that most of them believed prices would aot skyrocket. Most were pleased with'the sweeping decontrol order Ji the belief that more consumer ^oods would become available. Comment from industry spokesmen: :Food—The Department of Agriculture said food prices would average "materially higher" than they did a year ago. However, most 'ood price ceilings already had been removed in the decontrol movement of the last three weeks. Meat prices already had begun to level off. Spokesmen said most foods except sugar and fats would be iairly plentiful. Clothing—Lew Hahn. general manager of the National Retail T>ry Goods Association, said cloth 'ing prices an general may rise but 'will level off. He said that buyers could look for larger supplies of such scarce items as shirts, shorts, pajamas, slips baby garments and house dresses. A spokem.-m for the Rayon Industry said prices ior rayon goods would rise about 15 per cent. Leaders of the woolen indus- try said woolen fabrics would be more plentiful. They said the price of men's clothing may rise slightly but women's clothing may drop, although increases were predicted for corsets, brassieres and hosiery. No further increase was expected in the already high price of cotton goods. Automobiles — spokesmen for Chrysler and Hudson declined to comment pending a further study of decontrols and market trends. Ford Motor Co. said no increase was contemplated in the price of Ford cars or trucks. A prominent used car dealer at Atlanta, Ga., predicted that good used cars would advance in price and that medium and "rough" cars would drop. Building materials — Lewis Brown, chairman of Johns-Manville of New York City, said that with increasing production building materials will "work toward future reduction in building costs." He predicted that the building black market would end in a few months. OPA officials, however, said prices on some building materials might rise as high as 100 per cent. Furniture—Joseph Griswold, Jr., president of the Grand Rapids (Mich.,) Furniture Co.. said he anticipated no major furniture price rises. He added, however, that there would be sonic "adjustments of inequities" in furniture prices, but he predicted that furniture, particularly of the upholstered type, would increase in supply within four months. Steel— : steel spokesmen said there would be no overall price rise, but that some products such as nails, would increase in price. The OPA predicted that the price of scarce items such as stoves and refrigerators would jump 10 to 15 per cent. Coal—John D. Battle, executive secretary of the National Coal Association, said coal operators would hold prices "to the lowest possible minimum." He said the OPA's prediction that coal prices would soar was "unjustified." ' Fifty housewives were questioned Colorado Stock Miss Truman Suffering From Storms Walscnburg, Colo., Nov. 12 —(UP) —Southern Colorado stockmen described the condition of their snowbound herds of cattle ns "desperate" today as the threat of a new storm hung over the rangeland, already an ocean of snow. Emergency battalions of truck drivers and Weasel pilots faced at least three more days of bucking deep snowdrifts to deliver hay and feed to marooned livestock, cut off from their normal :Cood supply by accumulation of snow irom two severe blizzards. An estimated 30,000 head of cattle •were left floundering in the snow in southeastern Colorado by the storms. In addition, about 100 ranchers and their families found themselves locked in their isolated homes by lowering drifts and impassable roads. Forecasts from the U. S. Weather Bureau at Denver said two :\cw storms were moving into the region and probably would strike sometime today. The storms were described as "light" and it was hoped little snow would fall.

Phone 61 in sample interviews in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Detroit, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Miami, Philadelphia and Washington. D. C. Only 16 believed prices would skyrocket as a result of the decontrol order. Four of five women questioned at New York, including one who had registered high meat prices by refusing to buy meat for eight weeks, said they were pleased with he decontrol order. The other said she was "greatly displeased." Five housewives interviewed at Atlanta welcomed decontrol. They expected prices to jump sharply aut said they would "sit tight" ntil they return io normal. A Chicago housewife sai cl she expected booming food prices, but little increases on other products. An Evasion, 111., woman said she was displeased because she anticipated sharp increases. She said she would refuse to buy at cxhor- bitant prices. Mrs. Sarah Newman, chairman of the committee for consumer protection at Washington, said the OPA has been ineffective recently and that decontrol was "a good thine." "It is up to us now," she said I hope consumers here absolutel> iwill refuse to pay inflated prices I for anything." 30 miles southeast of Walscnburg, was rescued from his snowbound home last night, along with his wife, an expectant mother, and their seven-year-old daughter. A civilian crew in an army snow- climbing weasel reached the snow bound home on the plains after almost two days of vravel. Willis said more than 2,500 cattle in the area were in "desperate" condition .The stock, he said, has not been fed for 10 days. Most of the marooned cattle in the storm area was being ted spo radically with hay delivered by trucks and weasel, or dropped from airplanes. It was hoped the emergency feeding could DC con tinned until the. snow has settled vc allow the animals to forage again Yesterday a crew headed b> !apt.

The Met opened its 02nd season without the blessing of New York society's -arbiter, Mrs. Cornelius Vnnderbilt, who was in Hot Springs and missed her first Met opening in many years. " . But the young lady in box three, simply dressed in fusnhia crepe and a little broadtail jacket, got an ovation no 'society leader ever got. Margaret Truman, who has operatic aspirations, took over the Van- dcrbllt box with her singing teacher, Mrs. Thomas Strickler, and Mr. Strickler—and the usual corps of secret service men. She escaped the latter only for a few minutes at intermission. They had to wait at the door of the exclusive Metropolitan opera club on the grand tier while Miss Truman and her party went inside. Washington society nearly overshadowed the veteran New Yorkers at last night's opening. Among the national and international figures who came to hear Lily Pons sing Delibes' "Lakme" were Admiral Chester W. Nimltz, whose entrance brought an ovation second only to that for the president's daughter, Joao A. Bianchi, ambassador from Portugal, Henri Bonnet, ambassador from France, and Dr. Eclco Van Klcffens, Dutch delegate to the United Nations. Also present were the premier of Ontario, George A. .Drew, with Mrs. Drew, and Sir John Anderson, former British chancellor of the exchequer, with Lady Anderson.

S. Representative Brooks Mays of Little Rock to move to alleviate the annual high water throat io xhis state. In a telegram to the president yesterday. Hays urged the restora lion of public works appropriations for flood control projects that would harness watersheds in Arkansas. "I urgently request you to re store these appropriations as soon as possible, thus renewing the nopos of our people :"or adequate protection," the message read.. Congressman Hays stressed par and-bluc brocad.

It should be said in defense of Secretary Krug, howftvcr, that he didn't 'have any f interference. Nobody else on the government team ' tried to block John L. out 'of the play. In the second practice session Coach - star Lewis easily penetrated the opposition's defense when the government agreed to make an annual $100 vacation payment to miners retroactive, even though they hadn't worked in the mines since the government took them •over. So it may be safely assumed that the UMW 'loader regarded the big game with about as much fear _ as Notre Dame would feel in facing Slippery Rock Teachers. If Mr. Lewis doesn't come out of the pres- cut conference with a new contract to his liking, he can give his coun- Lions with Russia so long as the latter "persists in methods she uses against those who c!o not bend to her will."
