Porter Confirmed as New Chief of U. S. Price Control -Washington, Feb. 21 — ({?>— The Senate today, by unanimous consent, confirmed Paul A. Porter the new chief of price controls. Only a half dozen minutes of discussion was required for action.

Porter told the senator* that "every effort will be made io speed consideration" of cases in which there are complaints that OPA causes business men to lose money. As OPA Committee.

His plan: give the congressmen pensions. "Security means a lot lo anyone," says Dr. George W. Calver, Caitol physician. "Put yourself in a congressman's place. You're getting older. You haven't managed to save much money. You know that the public is fickle and that you may be booted out at any time." Calver reasons that if a congressman were assured of a pension, no matter how the elections turned out he'd be relieved of one of his major personal worries. With this frciling out of the svay, Calver says, a congressman would have ia) boiler heallh and (bi more lime for the .world's biggesl business, lhe U. S. government. Re. Albert J.

So he has built a nice home — "with a fine, modern bathroom"— for his helper. "Now if he ever decides he wants to leave, do you know whal will happen?" asks Engel. "His wife will lake one look at that nice house, with its fine bathroom, and she'll say, 'Nope. 1 They'll slay." Charles A.

PEACOCK Washington, Feb. 23 — (/P)— Lower meal prices were forecasl by Senator Thomas (D-Okla) today, despite •administration concern that wage increases for packing in- duslry workers may involve a price advance. Thomas sized up thc general outlook, ' however, and announced his verdict that "meal is going to get cheaper." As chairman of thc Senate Agriculture committee, Thomas has devoted a lot of years ancl effort to trying to raise farm prices. He said thai right now thc major factor in the situation point to a decline in meat prices due to a heavy supply, "There is a world of mcat.'in thc country," he told reporters. "And Ihc Agriculture Department is encouraging slaughter because of short feed supplies." Thomas pointed out that chickens were scarce just a few months ago, but now warehouses arc full and chickens arc soiling for half thc ceiling price because of thc over-supply. He looked for the same thing to happen on beef, h added. Thc administration's problem is what to do about meat prices in view of a 10 ccnls an hour wage increase recommended for packing workers by « presidential tact- finding board. The government already is paying subsidies to packers at thc rate of $720,000,000 a year on the theory that the spread between meat ceiling prices and costs are so narrow that the industry must have thc payments for a fair return on operations. An OPA ofticial said yesterday that Chester Bowles, the stabilization director, was inclined to the view that meat prices should be increased to take care of lhe higher cosls resulting from thc wage increase. Senator Tafl (It-Ohio) conlends increasing subsidies would mean in effccl that the government was "subsidizing a wage increase." Tafl argued lhat instead of increasing subsidies plans should be laid to taper off and end them.

Is there any way to find out whether such a righ'l exists? Wasn't it Washington's duly lo ascertain whether there is such a right? Hasn't that vital issue been compromised by default?

Many were held from discharge, and sal in Philadelphia wailing for t\\p call that never came. How wold must seven or 10 million persons be, before steps are taken to give them fuel? Thc situation became so grave that Ncw York's mayor declared a stale of disaster emergency ancl closed all but a few special essential businesses. After IB hours he discovered either that things never had been as bad as ho thought, or that they had improved, and he opened up everything—except the schools. Was he impetuous, or panicky? ,'fias ho misinformed? Was he uninformed? Was liaison between federal and local authorities scandalously faulty? Few would be disposed lo quibble about thc mayor's right lo save critically scarce coal, or to protect thc health of workers against heartless or thoughtless bosses by ordering them to stay away from undor- healed buildings. But why, if a restaurant was left open to serve food, could it nol sell liquor? Why could a business or professional man nol i't to his office to get papers on which to work at home? Apparently lhe tugboat strike showed just how defenseless, how unifi-cparcd our big cities really are—how little thought has beeii given to the meeting of major emergencies.

Thc charge was conlained in telegrams senl to the locals by George S. Addcs, secretary-treasurer for the 22-man international executive board which met late yeslerday in special session. Addcs said the board had heard a "full and detailed report" on thc GM negotiations from top UAW officials attending the union- company meetings, "On lhe basis of lhat report," he said, "the board unanimously concludes that the General Motors Corporation in refusing acceptance of thc president's recommendations is delaying a settlement of the strike for reasons and molives which lhe corporation representatives are not discussing-in the ne- golialions," Presidcnl Truman urged Iho corporation lo accept a fact - finding board recommendation that it grant hourly wage increases of 19 1*2 cents.

McVay, commander of the India- nap.phs, previously had been cleared by a court martial on another charge, "culpable inefficiency." This was based on an allegation that he failed to issue a timely order to abandon ship before the cruiser went down July 30, 1945 between Guam and Leyle .
